Server Paul lacked personality, he menu knowledge was sup par and to top it off when I paid he took the book from me after I signed the receipt and looked at the tip as he was walking away from the table, to me that is the worst part people spend $311 for two people to dine and the server has the nerve to look at the tip while he’s walking away from the table let alone pick the book up while I am still there I used to be a fan but the Clayton location has gone downhill last two times I’ve been there so my business will goto 801 chophouse instead they blow you away in service and food

We have always enjoyed our visits to Ruth's Chris in Clayton. The receptionists are very welcoming. The bar is vibrant and fun. We often eat in the bar in a booth. It is very cozy and intimate.
Our latest outing, we sat in the dining room. The service was first rate. TC is an excellent server and has a great personality. He always gets our order just right and has an excellent knowledge of wine pairings.
He has great suggestions for specials and times serving the different courses at just the right pace.
Our food is always perfectly prepared and the entrees are served hot. We usually have a caeser salad, shoestring potatoes and save room to split a dessert. The berries and cream are particularly good! Always a great night!

Reservations for 7:30 on a Saturday. Fairly busy as expected, so some consideration for that. Server Daniel was excellent and knew the wine list very well. Food was outstanding as always. Only two complaints— salads arrived 51 minutes after being seated, apparently a mixup in the kitchen. As a result, my steak was served on a hot, but non-sizzling platter. Fortunately the steak was cooked well and had not rested too long, just disappointed in how it was served. Management did not provide any consideration for the late salads, but I didn’t complain, so will let it go this time. Overall satisfied, but not the exceptional experience we usually have at RC’s.

I’ve never had a bad service or experience at this location ever. That changed Saturday night. I don’t know what their deal was with food quality control but if I could give that negative stars I would. We decided that we would take our 9 year old daughter there for her first time ever at the restaurant my wife and I have dined at multiple times with no issues at all from start to finish. We ordered our meals. Nothing wrong there. Service is excellent as always. No complaints there. I got my steak and it was more medium-medium well rather than my preference of medium rare so I sent it back. Fine all good there. But my daughter got her chicken and I looked at it and something wasn’t right. She didn’t think it tasted right either and she spit it out gracefully of course. I looked at it and the chicken was completely RAW in the middle. I couldn’t believe it and my wife couldn’t believe it either. We were absolutely furious. That is extremely dangerous and even deadly! Where was the quality control that night? Sure they made it up and were very professional and understanding. But it shouldn’t have ever happened in the first place. Good thing my daughter didn’t eat it or she would have been violently ill. Fortunately for her and everyone she didn’t get sick at all and didn’t take one more bite. This is a warning to anyone dining out especially when you order food that must be thoroughly cooked through. Be careful! I was extremely disappointed that the place I have visited for many many years would let that pass through at all. Still makes me angry even as I write this

Wonderful service but food delivery was a little on the slow side, but since it was a special occasion, we were not in a hurry. Steak and lobster prix fixe for Valentine’s Day was good but steak was a little dry. Mashed potatoes and creamed spinach sides were very good. Dessert was phenomenal. We got carrot cake and chocolate cheesecake, and both were delicious.

Steaks were just ok - fried calamari was chewy and tough. Steaks were Not seasoned. The garlic mashed potatoes are not real potatoes I’m pretty sure they are a box of some sort. Totally disappointed. For a $700 bill I really expected a lot better quality.

Not great for the price. Steaks not cooked as ordered, took a long time to get drink refills, and food was not that flavorful. Not worth the price!

Thanks to the whole team that night for making our late 17th anniversary pleasant, comfortable, and relaxing. We will be returning.

My husband chose this restaurant for his 50th birthday dinner, a very special occasion. As soon as we entered, I had a sense that this would not be the special experience I had hoped. It was bright, very loud, lots of little kids...very similar to any chain restaurant with slightly nicer decor (booths and quiet rooms looked nice but our table was a basic table smack in the middle of the dining room). Service was wooden and rushed-I was only halfway through my 5oz pour of wine when the entrees came! When ordering, I confirmed the doneness of the filets with the server. My husband and I both ordered medium-rare (red but cooked through). Mine came medium (pink), his came rare (cold and raw inside). The server suggested my husband cook the steak more on the hot plate, which he did, but is this this restaurant's general policy? Fix it yourself? I don't think that's appropriate for this level of restaurant. And I expect a specialty steakhouse to cook the filets to the standard they state on the menu, especially after confirming with the server. The kitchen got *both* filets wrong. They did bring out a special dessert for my husband, and that was nice. But, overall, this was very underwhelming & not what we expected from a Ruth's Chris . I don't think I would return, based on this visit.

This restaurant was on the Clayton restaurant week list. We made reservations online early. Food/drink (martinis five stars) and service were excellent. Location was great and a valet was available. The only minor downside - could not get separate checks, otherwise all great.
