Formal service with a courteous Attitude. Evan was professional and charismatic. The quality and attention to detail paid to the preparation of the food was superb. Well worth the price.

The food was amazing.
There was a few hiccups for the money we paid.
For your anniversary they give you a red candle which is sweet but so dim you can’t even tell it’s on.
Then we waited for our water, eventually coming after our served alcohol drinks. When I was finished with my meal we sat for a good while with the dirty dishes in front of us. Normally wouldn’t mind the little details but paying 200 dollars for the meal I expected the service to be a little more then what was given.

Food was very good and sides could feed 2 or more people. Wait staff was good. Getting food the day we were there was a little slow but we had to get to a concert. Overall everything was good and would definitely eat there again.

Food was excellent. Hilton was very busy and made parking difficult, almost missed our reservation. Noise in the restaurant was excessive. Wait staff were very professional. The attire policy was not followed, baggie sorts, tee shirts, jeans. If you have a policy posted, and they did, enforce it.

This is a newer location for a Ruth’s Chris franchise (not a company-owned property). The decor and service were both very on-point. Valet parking at Hilton was convenient and appreciated. The food wasn’t quite up to the corporate standard. It may be a learning curve is underway, but I would encourage the franchise owners ensure the food and presentation excels to the standard that guests expect from a Ruth’s Chris location.

All though it was a great dinner the temperature in the room definitely had impact. It was freezing!! According to others that had previously visited said it was the same issue last time.

Celebration of one of our birthday group members. Ruth’s Chris of Columbia SC is our favorite location for celebrating. Service is always great. Assistance with Birthday presentations is always acceptable.

This was a part of my “WELCOME HOME FROM JAPAN‼️” treat from my husband❣️

It was, without a doubt, our BEST dining experience at Ruth’s Chris—thanks to our server, KEN!! He was attentive, personable, and just plain friendly!! (Of course the food was great as well!😉)

Wow...where do I begin? The wait staff was truly in-tuned to our needs and stimulated our taste buds with the BBQ shrimps and horseradish beef tips as an appetizer. The entrees were cooked to our expectations and we were presented with a wonderful strawberry shortcake dessert. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

We’ve been to this restaurant several times since it opened. It was the worst service we have had in a long time. I understand that it was a very busy weekend in Columbia and at the hotel in particular. It was extremely loud and our table was essentially ignored. We had to ask a server for the wine list and it took 10-15 minutes for our waiter to even appear.

We took our daughter out to celebrate an accomplishment. We all ordered off the prefix menu for $60 a person. The salads were small and nothing special. My husbands steak was over Cooked and sent back. My shrimp were tiny and so over cooked I could barely cut them...I did not eat them. The sides are small and you only get one for the $60. The dessert was very dry and not very good. The service was ok but the server asked us five times if we were ready to order in the first 10 minutes of sitting down. My husband went to the rest room and she even asked then if we wanted to wait for him to come back to order...duh! With a couple of drinks the bill with tip was $340!
I enjoyed my free breakfast at the hotel more....seriously! It is a racquet!!

The entrees were good but two of the side dishes were cold. They had issues with all the wine I chose. I was told they were changing over their wine menu. They only had $43 a glass wine options, but with persistence I found one for $22 a glass which is ridiculous. Overall will not return. Definitely not worth the price!
