Ruth’s is always excellent, but was a tad off norm this night. Normally, my steak is cooked perfectly, bit “medium” came out “rare” by anyone’s standards on this night. Otherwise everything was top-notch!

Gave this a second chance and was not disappointed. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The sides were excellent. Service was top notch on a busy Valentines night. All and all an outstanding evening and dinner for a special occasion.

It was our 32 anniversary. Service was great and good amazing. At the end of the evening they gave us a créeme brûlée for both which was a nice touch. Wine selection amazing. Obviously will go back there

The truth of Ruth’s Chris is you’re paying for the experience. The staff is attentive and respectful, as well as incredibly diligent in making sure your evening goes well. The food is very good, but there are many other restaurants that provide similarly high quality and good tasting food for a fraction of the cost. Referring back to my prior statement, Ruth’s Chris isn’t the best value out there but overall is a very good choice to take that special someone in your life on occasion.

I had the worst experience ever at a Ruth's Chris restaurant this week. My college aged daughters and I have celebrated Valentine's Day with a lunch or dinner since they were in the 7th and 8th grades respectively. This time we chose Ruth's Chris because they have awesome lunch options. When we got there we were informed that they were not offering the normal lunch because of the Valentines Day holiday. So at 11:15 am our choices were only from the dinner menu. (i.e. Steaks, chicken, fish, etc--NO SANDWICHES) Rather than accommodating us, the manager suggested that we get up from our seat in the dining room and sit in the bar area and order from the "bar bites" menu. This is despite the fact that we were essentially the only ones in the place at that time.... I have eaten at the Charlotte Uptown location for years and have spent thousands of dollars there with my family and business associates because of their dedication to customer service. The Columbia location obviously does not understand or value that concept.

The sweet potato soufflé is amazing. As it relates to the steaks, they’re good. To me, Ruth’s Chris may be losing their magic. Many more comparative steak restaurants are out there with better delivery for less.

We arrived at the time of our reservation (8:15), but we were not seated until after 8:45. The restaurant said they had no record of our reservation through OpenTable.

Most of the food was very good, but my steak was average.

For a special occasion (mother-in-law’s 80th birthday), the wait was surprisingly long and the service overall was less than we expected from Ruth’s Chris.

Will think twice before returning.

Everything was ok, we didn’t receive our appetizer until after we received our main course. Had to ask for them still at that point. I believe it is way overpriced.

This is not the first time we went to Ruth's Chris but apparently Saturday evenings the staff is overwhelmed and not in the best mood to attend to customers. It was also VERY loud. We had better steaks here before.

Took my daughter after daddy/daughter dance for special date night. Got seated at 7:45. Waiter Tony was awesome! Steaks finally came out at 9. Both steaks ordered med well but came out well well done. Tony apologized and sent back. Second time filet was even more well done then first time. Todd the manager came out and apologized and comped the meal for our inconvenience. Also a date across from is was wearing very provocative clothes where her entire breast were revealed several times and made my daughter very uncomfortable. Also lots of F words coming from that table. Was not the experience or the memory Inwas trying to create w my daughter. I have been here several other times and had no issues. Not sure if I would go back again? Tony and Todd were very kind and at least they tried thier beat to right the wrong.

Have eaten at Ruth's several times and this was my only somewhat disappointing experience. The steak was not up to standard, the shrimp and grits had sauce poured over it and the normally great Au Gratin potatoes were very average.
For the price you expect a wow factor, and on this occasion there was no wow.
