What was very disappointing was how they cleared our table and left us sitting at an empty table. When the waiter finally came to our table and asked if we wanted dessert, we watched him go to another table to start taking their orders and he never came back with the dessert menu. Then he went to the back and walked by us without menus again. That was what led us to leave and get dessert elsewhere. This is very disappointing because we had gone out to celebrate my husband's birthday, and this was not a very noteworthy meal or enjoyable experience overall. Maybe different servers would have at least made some difference, but we wont go back. No one was particularly friendly or seemed focused on providing a great experience.

The service was excellent and the ambiance was pleasant. Noise level was good, even with several large parties being served. Wine by the glass was very expensive. The caesar salad was excellent. I had asked for my filet to be cooked medium, however it came out as medium - well, with no pink on the inside, which was disappointing. The baked potato was average in taste, but oversized and impossible to eat at one sitting. The promised blue cheese crust on the vegetable medley was not apparent. Overall a pleasant dinner, but not worth the price.

Went on Mother’s Day and we had reservations. Dining room was packed but it seemed they were understaffed as service was slower than usual. Food was very good. Will come back but not on a holiday or special day.

Ask for Ken as your server. He made the evening exceptional in every way. This birthday dinner was more than we hoped for as we enjoyed fabulous food and an entertaining & excellent wait staff took care of our table with Ken as the star. I would recommend Ruth's Chris Steak House to all my family and friends for a special meal or anytime for great food and service.

Everything was amazing the only thing I can say is I ordered the lobster bisque and it was cold. I would have spoken to my waiter but it was so long before he came to my table that I just gave up.

Very disappointed. This was our second time to RC and the first was great. The service was terrible. We were there for 3 hours. My moms scallops were tiny and advertised as “jumbo”. I ordered steak and Shrimp. I had to ask for the shrimp because they didn’t come out with my meal. My sons ribeye was full of fat. I am not one to complain but I felt the need in this case. The chef should have never served the scallops and ribeye and it should have never taken that long to serve dinner., not mention our bill was almost $400 which we expected but we also expected an amazing meal and service. Will not be back.

Hardly anyone there but it took 30 mins to get our drinks then 1 hour to get our food.

My son had to be at graduation so he did not get to eat.

This is just silly for a Pre Fixe menu and a total bill of $480 for 6.

We picked this restaurant for brunch as it was advertised as having a brunch. After we were seated with drinks we were given dinner menus. I asked for a lunch or brunch menu and was told only dinner was being served this weekend as it is graduation and Mother’s Day weekend. How does that make sense? We really were not ready for a steak at 11:30 in the morning! My husband ordered a salad and asked for a crab cake to be served with it. That did not happen...first salad then later two sad looking crab cakes with no sauce. My son ordered shoestring fries and they never came and was later served steak fries. We were at this “brunch” to meet new friends and thought with a name like Ruth Chris it would be very nice....we were sorely disappointed.
