The worst service I’ve ever had at a 4+ star restaurant. It took forever to get cocktails from the bar. Food service was very rushed. Maincourse arrived five minutes after we got our appetizers. The waitress had to bring our entrees back to the kitchen and then we were served our entrée about 20 minutes later. My son’s turkey dinner for Thanksgiving was nicely presented. However, my turkey dinner was scraps of turkey. When I brought it to the managers attention she was shocked when she saw it. Although being very apologetic ,I lost my appetite and said I did not want anything else. To make matters worse throughout this entire episode, my waiter nowhere to be found. Never again!

Usually, the Thanksgiving meal at Ruth's Chris is excellent. This year was a little disappointing. The dressing was dry with barely any gravy. I had to ask for more. The food was barely warm. One of us had not finished her salad when the entrees arrived.

My steak was raw. Had to be returned to the kitchen. The main course came while I was still eating my salad. The creamed spinach was cool, not hot.

Our waiter was attentive.

For a fine restaurant, this evening was not exceptional.

We travel here often. We will try Motor Supple next time.

I went to Ruth’s Chris for the first time with my girlfriend for her birthday. The service was exceptional! All very kind and enjoyable to talk to as well as efficient. The food was incredible and made me wish I could empty my stomach and eat another meal. Fantastic experience.

We have dined at this restaurant many times. I used opentable to make my reservation the day before and received the confirmation but I received a call from the restaurant to confirm my reservation again! When I asked the reason they said that this is their new system and they no longer accept reservations through "open table"!!

We have eaten at several Ruth's Chris restaurants and this by far was our worst experience. We sat at the bar and the server was nice but he was the only one waiting on the bar and bar tables meaning refills and bar drinks were few and far between. The food took longer than ever has before and was just not the level that Ruth's Chris provides at other locations as the taste was not as flavorful and the sides were cold. Very disappointed for a meal costing 450.00 plus tip.

Not a good experience this time food wise ~ out of lobster bisque, out of lyonnaise potatoes and both my husbands and my filets were overcooked (our friends dinners were cooked ok). Service was good, certainly not the servers fault but the food was absolutely not worth the price of a $250 dinner.

My family fined for my cousins graduation from basic training! Our service was absolutely amazing. Our waiter and all of the staff went out of their way to congratulate my cousin. Our waiter brought appetizers to our table and just made it an all around amazing experience. I will absolutely recommend this establishment!
Thank you again for
Making it unforgettable.

Overpriced for a weekday lunch. Which is probably why only two customers were there for lunch.

It was good... not great for the price... the tables are so close together it feels like a cafeteria. There were on 5-6 seated tables when we were there, yes we heard every word the table next to us were saying... our server tripped over the chair at the table next to us (luckily didn’t fall). The steak was excellent. For the price and type of menu it needs a better ambiance.

This was our 21 year anniversary dinner out and we chose Ruth Chris as we were dreaming of a delicious steak , we got the filet Mignon with the shrimp, it was a set course meal , we both ordered medium cooked steaks , his was well, we sent it back , my leak and potatoe soup was really lukewarm, so disappointed as we are finally in soup weather , His creamed spinach was cold and I had to send back my sweet potato stuffing as it was so hard and overcooked we could not cut it! Now the manager did come by with an appetizer of cold shrimp , and they also upgraded our desserts at no charge so that was nice , but honestly I was pretty disappointed and we did have fun and our server was very attentive, she took everything back with no problem, so needless to say we need a redo on anniversary dinner .....

We love Ruth's Chris so when we were visiting Columbia we figured it would be a safe bet to bring some friends there for dinner. Wine was excellent but the service was Terrible! Our waitress would disappear for ten to fifteen minutes at a time. So much so that it became a joke with the table next to us! The food was not up to the level that we are used to from Ruth's Chris. The Salmon was reported as good but none of our steaks were the quality that we have become accustomed when visiting Ruth's Chris.

The Columbia Ruth's Chris did not represent the brand very well at all!

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.
