This was my 3rd time to Ruth's Chris. Though 6+ years ago, my first two times were not good experiences. I guess third time's a charm! Friday night was excellent. I ordered a ribeye medium-rare, it was served on a super hot plate, was lean and PERFECTLY prepared. My date ordered crab cakes that were big in size and flavor! On top of the food, the service was even better. Jennifer took care of us and was outstanding...she was super friendly, always smiled, remembered our names, offered wine ideas, had our food prepared to order, was around enough but not too much, perfect! Thank you, Jennifer! ...and to the others who waited on us ...and to Ruth's Chris, you redeemed yourself!

Unfortunately, I felt that we were misguided by our server. Salads were much larger than individual sized. My steak also came out way wrong and I did not receive my replacement until the other members of my party finished their meals. They did comp us for the meal but I expected that they would have been able to complete the turn around much quicker.

Food and service was good. We had an issue with the bill and waited 20 min for it to get fixed. They weren’t happy we brought our own cake, I called and asked if it was okay and they said absolutely. That wasn’t the case once we arrived.

We had a 5:45 reservation, and arrived at 5:30, so the restaurant was not busy yet. Since this was our anniversary, the staff sprinkled some rose petals on our table. We noticed another couple also had rose petals on their table. By arriving before 6PM, we were able to order the $49.95 Prix Fixe special which included a starter (house or caesar salad or soup of the day), an entree (8oz filet, barbecue shrimp, blue crab cakes, or stuffed chicken breast), a side (choice of garlic mashed potatoes or steamed spinach), and a chocolate mousse for dessert. For our entree, my wife and I chose the 8oz filet (for $57.95 you can get the 11oz filet, a 16oz ribeye, or a king salmon fillet). Both filets were excellent. Our server Sherry was also excellent - didn't hover, even though the restaurant was not yet busy, but gave us the right amount of attention. The manager (I assume) also greeted us and took a photo of us, and printed it out, which was an added bonus. All in all, a great night.

The food was very good. The sweet potato casserole was awesome. My husband loved the crab cakes. I had stuffed chicken breast, but it was a little dry and I could have used a little more seasoning. We shared a delicious salad. I would like to try dining at Ruth Chris again for my birthday.
It’s was very nice, but a bit pricey.

Our serve Chris was amazing and very knowledgeable about the wine list and menu. We were in a room where we could close the door and it made it very quiet and intimate. The our mashes potatoes came out cold, but the issue was quickly fixed and the rest of our food was amazing.

Busy - Active - Energetic place! Servers were Wonderful!

Unfortunately the steak was not. The petite filet was amazing but New York Strip was terrible – A Strip is good with a little marbling – but this had pockets of fat – very disappointed.

But we did not let it spoil our evening! Great Music and a fun crowd.

If you like steaks, this is a place to dine at. Our steaks, served on a very hot plate, were delicious. Perfectly cooked! Ordered a couple of sides to share and the 2 of us unable to finish them. Good service. Certainly not rushed at all. And since we were celebrating a birthday, someone stopped by and took our picture. Emailed it to us and gave us a printed copy as well. Nice touch!

Mike D was our server and he was Amazing! My sister and I had my 2yr old niece along for dinner and he helped us pick her food. The best part was they brought her food out first which was PERFECT because when our food came out she was full that so allowed my sister and I to enjoy our meals. The atmosphere was perfect, nice live music great lighting. Two sister dinning out was an absolutely enjoyable evening.

What a delightful birthday celebration! We requested some drinks made non-alcoholic and they were superb. The crab cakes appetizers... divine! The 16oz ribeye was perfection for my husband while I enjoyed the stuffed chicken. Even the leftovers microwaved two days later were absolutely delicious. The chocolate mousse is so creamy with a rich flavor that is second to none! The service, from being greeted by the hostess to the final gentleman clearing our table, was spectacular. We love Ruth’s Chris!

If all Ruth's Chris restaurants are of the same caliber of this one, it's sad people would spend their hard-earned money here. It's overrated, and overpriced in my opinion. Spend your money and time elsewhere.

You can never go wrong at Ruth Chris in Clayton. We have been there on several occasions. You are greeted and treaty to a smile with a interest in making your experience pleasurable. We hate that we stayed away too long. About that Ribeye steak, well all I can say is this one is definitely a winner. Service is always best in the class. We are looking forward to our next visit.

The service we had was terrific! We went to Ruth’s Chris for an early Valentine dinner. Everyone was very friendly; our waiter was knowledgeable, responsive, and went above and beyond to make sure we had a nice date.
My only problem with the food was that I ordered a medium rare ribeye and it was pretty over cooked. My fiancé had a great filet, though. Plus the complimentary chocolate covered strawberries were wonderful.

The over cooked steak was just a little frustrating. Otherwise, I’d encourage anyone willing to spend for a nice date to check out Ruth’s Chris in Clayton.

Just okay - Dinner for two (two drinks, shared app, shared salad, two dinners and desert) was $260. At that price point I’d expect the food to be very good. It wasn’t bad but the outback has the same quality for 1/3 of the price...maybe it was an off night
