Love Ruth Chris however they were off their A-game. I was disappointed. My steak wasn’t blackened it was charred. Oh well, I will go back and hope they will be back on their A game

Excellent as always...perfect steak, perfect wine, perfect service (Thanks, Miguel!) for two people just trying to have a wonderful date on a Monday they made is feel special and welcome. Glad to see the porter house for two! Easily the best value on the menu, and SO MUCH PERFECT STEAK!! (40oz!) always a treat

We have been here multiple times. The food is great and normally we get right in and the staff is very responsive. On Saturday we had to wait 25 minutes for our 8:15 pm reservation. The staff is normally fantastic, but unfortunately they must have been short staffed on Saturday night. Our waiter worked really hard, but he was over tasked with multiple tables and did not have an assistant server.

Christmas dinner. First visit and took almost 1.5 hours for entree. Did not order salad. Asked for bread 3 times. Asked for well done filet. Talked into medium well w promise of no pink. Arrived very pink & had to send back. Told a few times that staff was covering for Clayton but came from downtown. Mgmt should have provided more help. I assumed that my service would be top notch & while my server was very friendly, did not replace service that anticipated our needs. I didn't want to ruin our holiday dinner by complaining but I wish I had.

Been to Ruth's Chris many times and have always enjoy the food and the service. This time I felt the service and the food was lacking. We had dirty dishes on our table from the appetizers til our entrees came they even had to move them out of the way to put our plates down, and the food has been so much better in the pass.

 (New Orleans)·Dined on December 17, 2017

How the mighty have fallen in St Louis at least as far as Ruth's Chris is concerned. June 3rd, on my husband's birthday, it was spectacular and my review reflected that. 6 months later on December 16th it was one of the WORST meals I have ever had and not just at a Ruth's Chris, but ANYWHERE. Even the service was far below par as we waited on 6 occasions for more iced tea. To their credit, they did make sure my acorn squash soup was HOT, sadly it had literally no flavor. It tasted like pureed baby food garnished with crunchy undercooked squash dice and 4 pumpkin seeds. Utterly horrible--if you can't make soup, then at least BUY a quality pre-fab and mark it up massively like the way you mark up your 79 cents-a-pound baked potato to $12 per pound. The opposite was true of the mushroom couscous that was served so cold that I put it on my smoking hot steak plate to warm it up. It was ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE! There was an ocean's worth of SALT and enough garlic to wipe out a platoon of vampires and it was swimming in a pool of grease that I couldn't discern the origin to be olive oil or butter due to the un-effing-believable amount of garlic and salt. I did, however, use it to season the totally flavorless steak that had NO seasoning whatsoever--they just couldn't be bothered apparently so my husband and I used tiny bits of the chewy UNDERCOOKED fish-eye textured couscous to season the tasteless steaks. As for the steaks, you need a new butcher fellas. I've never had gristle in a filet ANYWHERE they were charging $59 for 11 oz of steak until last night. At Ruth's Chris. On my birthday.The creme brulee was mushy and grainy--everything it is NOT SUPPOSED TO BE. It was without a doubt the worst food and service I have EVER had at ANY Ruth Chris Steak house in the United States. But wait--there's MORE!! Luckily they seated us right NEXT to the waiter station so we were entertained by the shop talk all night because these guys couldn't stop yapping with each other.

This is such a great lunch spot; in my opinion it is completely under-utilized by the lunch crowd. My wife and I happened to be in the area, wanted a nice lunch, so Ruth's Chris was my first choice. Excellent service, great food. Yes, depending on what you get, it can cost more - but you definably get more.

I've eaten at Ruth Chris' Restaurants for years. First time I ever ate at a RC Restaurant was in Baltimore, MD. Then when we moved to TX we went to the restaurant in Dallas ...now that I'm living in St. Louis....the restaurant is in Clayton. All of the Ruth Chris' restaurants I've been to are the same....wonderful food, comfortable atmosphere and excellent service!

Have been to every Upscale Steak House in the US but never Ruth's Chris. Oh, what I have been missing. The food was incredible, our server (Miquel) was engaging and (I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge her) my date that evening - a woman I will marry someday - was charming, incomparable and as stunning as ever. Quite possibly a perfect evening...

Food was excellent; Service was very good; The music from the bar (very poor singer) went on way pass happy hour and ruined the atmoshere of excellent food during what should have been an outstanding dining experience. One other point , $25 for a glass of recent vintage Jordan Chadonnay was outrangeous. It was very ordinary. Wines by the glass needs work.
