It doesn’t get better than Ruth’s Chris. Best steak and sides and dessert in town. Tremendous wine list.

Three of four dinners were served. The last person was served after the other diners were finished with their meals. However, to the restaurant credit, the last meal was comped. the server, different from the waiter noticed that the one persons meal was not on the tray. Obviously, no one in the kitchen checked to see if the order was complete.

Two of the diners had steak which were overcooked slightly. At this point , it seemed that our server was afraid to return to the table and face us.

Ended up in the bar for happy hour. I had heard about the great value and wanted to check it out for myself. Let me tell you, for $9, the steak sandwich is easily one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Burgers looked delicious as well. Bar was very lively, and staff was friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend this for one of the best happy hours in the city!

Being our first visit, and having heard great things about Ruth Chris we were really expecting excellent food and service. Our server was either new and overwhelmed, or simply did not care about her job. We basically received “no service”. Drinks took a very long time. We only received bread because we asked, with our meals. Other tables received theirs after drinks. The food was just so-so.

I will say that their signature chopped salad was amazing!

Overall a very disappointing experience. Spending top $ should equal over the top service.

We had an excellent time. The waiter when asked if my husband could have a beer on tap he came back with a bottle. My husband would have preferred a glass of wine if he had to known that the beer was not on tap. But that did not spoil our good time.

STEAKS!!! Yep it has fish and chicken, but you go to a steakhouse for steaks. Lots of options and sizes. Good salads. Lots of sides. Brussel sprouts and lobster Mac & cheese were exceptional. All steaks were prepared as ordered.
Nice atmosphere. No onsite valet. There is valet close by for general area. Streetcar gets you within a block. parking can be an issue if there is an event at the ball park or coliseum.

Our visit started out fine. We were seated on the second floor, which was quiet and nice until a large party arrived. We waited for almost 35 minutes for what turned out to be the 16 ounce filet with a bone filled with grizzle. They took it back and brought us the second one, which took almost as long as the first one. They replaced our mash potatoes, but not our mushrooms. They bought us a drink but forgot it was my husbands birthday. The credit card machine was not working, but as far as we were concerned, we probably should have received the meal for free.

We have had some good experiences at this location, but this is the second bad experience.

We have eaten at Ruth Chris in Destin, and have always had peaceful dining, and excellent food.

Sincerely,

Kathy Ayers

The hostess seated us and I asked if we could sit by the window and she said that table was reserved. It turns out it was reserved for us as we were celebrating my husband's Birthday.
Our waiter let us switch but then we had a different server who took forever to wait on us and bring our food. Very disappointed in the service.

Although it’s a steakhouse, order the stuffed chicken breast- it was phenomenal!!! The fixed price menu is a great value- got a hearty salad (steakhouse salad), stuffed double chicken breast, good sized side portion, excellent dessert (ice cream and apple cheesecake). Salad was fresh and big enough for 2. Upgraded the side for sautéed mushrooms- delicious. Dessert was perfect ending. Lance gave awesome service and made for an enjoyable experience. Definitely going back!

We waited 5 minutes just to be met at the door and that was with someone going to bar to ask if anyone was going to seat us

Restaurant was cold. Wife and daughter kept their coats on

Wife ordered a crusted filet. When she got her food, it was just a plain filet and the waitress said the crust would come separately in a few minutes??

We were there to celebrate daughters engagement. Thought maybe they'd get a free dessert or something.

On positive note, steaks were very flavorful

My wife and I ALWAYS enjoy going to Ruth's Chris. The food is excellent in our opinion. My wife loves the steaks (filet) and I thoroughly enjoy the stuffed chicken. Whenever we travel, we try to locate a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.

Food and service were ok, I had the Lobster bisque and didn’t care for it. It had too much of a sherry taste and seemed like it tasted burned. We both had the petite filet. It was ok but not much flavor to it. Overall, it was ok but nothing special.

It was very mediocre. The service was a mess. They forgot to ask for our drink order. They forgot to bring a salad for my father. So many people involved and none really responsible. We had to ask to have water filled. For such a great brand this was a very poor experience. The steaks were good as always, but my mother was disappointed that there was no salmon on the menu. She got stuffed chicken and it was just ok. There are a dozen steakhouses in Cincinnati that have service and food that is 10 times better. That will be our last trip to Ruth's Chris in cinci

My food was very good. The crab stack (lump bluefin crab, mango, cucumber and avocado) is awesome --you definitely need to try it. I also recommend the roasted brussel sprouts and Lyonnaise potatoes. My steak was perfectly done and my wife's sea bass was delicious. Service was efficient without being obtrusive. When I go out for an upscale dining experience, however I'd rather not be sitting next to "bro dude" with the ripped jeans, untucked wrinkled shirt and his "chicka" drinking beer out of a bottle. There were also other tables with patrons whose casual dress is probably more suitable for a "2 for $20" Tuesday special than Saturday night at Ruth's Chris.

Service was the worst I have ever had in a fine dining restaurant. Our waiter was pouring water and picking up dishes which slowed him from getting us bread, our drinks, etc. I was so disappointed, I found manager because I felt like there must have been some system issues and didn't want to stiff our waiter. While she did apologize, never really did get a decent explanation. My Caesar salad was probably one of the best I've had, but my steak and the bread was okay. I've had way better.

I had made a reservation for 2, thinking that my husband and I would take advantage of Cincinnati's "restaurant week" to enjoy a special dinner together despite no particular occasion to celebrate. When our daughter unexpectedly decided to come into town that weekend, however, I called to see if we could add a 3rd to our reservation, fully expecting the answer to be "no." To my pleasant surprise, the staff at Ruth's Chris could not have been more accommodating, and we were able to include our daughter in a lovely no-special-reason evening, with good service and even better food. Kudos for a seamless fine-dining experience.

My friends steaks came out well done when ordered medium and had to wait to recook it. Then it came out medium rare so she didn't even eat but three bites of it. We got there at 8:45 and didn't leave till 10:53. She wasn't sending the steak back a second time
After salad came the server had to come tell us there was no fire roasted corn and we both ordered it
Overall very disappointed in how it was handled from the kitchen
For the price we paid for dinner, unhappy. We come here somewhat often and this was disappointing again.
