Ruth's Chris Steak House - Columbia Ratings and Reviews
First time at a Ruth's Chris and I cant wait to go back. My husband and I went out on a date night. Both loved our petite filets. Best we have ever had! Excellent service. Only thing i would change is that it was freezing in the restaurant. My husband had to leave his coat on the entire time. My coat was not something to eat in so i had to put it over my lap and freeze. The steak, sides and creme brulee were all delicious!
Service was friendly but uneven, our server was young and not the level of professional that a restaurant charging this much should have on a Friday night. Bread was brought 15 minutes after we were seated, Caesar Salad had virtually no dressing on it. Steaks were presented on plates with splatter marks all around the food.
Now this is what a steak should taste like! Filet with a horseradish crust was outstanding! My friend's ribeye was equally as good, so we shared! Highly recommend the crab beignet starters! Very tasty and light with great crab inside. Sides and dessert were also excellent. My friend ordered from the petit meals but I ordered a la carte and we were both more than satisfied. Atmosphere was very relaxing and enjoyable but I wish there was more strategic lighting - I could barely read my menu. Will be coming back here though as it was a wonderful experience.
Really bad Strip Steak, barely average Filet. Far, far below expectations for the premium price. It just can't always be this bad, but this time it sure was. Hope you have better luck than we did, but luck shouldn't have anything to do with it at an upscale steakhouse. We have dined at Ruth's Chris all over the East Coast many times, and it is usually perfection. This was very disappointing.
We did have a few glitches. My husband's steak was undercooked. Mine was perfect as was my daughters. The fact that his steak had to go back for additional cooking was not a great outcome. Also, the waiter spilled a bit of beer while pouring. These two mistakes resulted in the server providing a desert on the house and also comping the beer so thought that was excellent. The food was really delicious. too bad these two small problems occurred. otherwise would be a 5 star review.
Very loud/very crazy energy in this restaurant. Couldn't even hear the waiter. I know the steaks are "prime" but from a health standpoint, I don't really think bragging about "corn-fed" steaks is much to brag about! (I'm a local food/grass-or-pasture raised gal!) Anyway, the waiter was good and helpful (even though we couldn't hear him over the noise)... The restaurant had no charm (just a busy cafeteria feeling) and the vibe was one of an overrated hotel bar to me. Lots of people in shorts and t-shirts. Not a romantic or special night out. If you like corn-fed steaks and sides (like sweet potato casserole!) you'd enjoy it. We really were just scrambling to eat on a busy weekend in Columbia. I'd give this "experience" a 2 out of 10 and the food a 5 out of 10.
We dine at Ruth's Chris for our annual steak dinner. If you're indulging in a once-in-365-days meal, why not make it the best , right?
We each had the petite filet: seared crisp on the outside, tender on the inside. The broccoli side is steamed beautifully - tender crisp and bright green. My husband loved the baked potato - plain - with moist inside and chewy, flavorful skin.
Our server Nate was attentive and skillful. He knew the wines and brought tastes of a couple to help me decide.
All in all, a special evening.
This wasn't the fine dining experience we we looking for. It was merely expensive dining. My wife and I have dined at several other Ruth's Chris restaurants. Our expectations we not met.
We dressed up as we do for fine dining. It wasn't necessary. Many of the male diners wore T shirts and shorts... Really. Women were dresses similarly. There was a couple next to us with a child wearing a baseball hat backwards. So much fo atmosphere.
The food wasn't up to the restaurants standards either. My 16 oz ribeye was very fatty. About 1/5 of the steak was wasted to fat. My wife and I ordered Caesar salads. They forgot to put Parmesan on mine. My wife ordered creamed spinach. It was slightly warm. The shoestring fries were served at rom temperature.
Our waiter was okay. Once dinner was served he disappeared until it was time for the check. No one asked how we liked our meal.
Definitely not up to this chains standards.
I took my husband there to celebrate his 80th Birthday. It was very special and the food and service was excellent, our waitress "Jenn" was excellent. All of the wait staff was very professional and customer conscious. We were able to have a quiet conversation and enjoy our meal without. It was very romantic. Thank you
Although I am a frequenter of Ruth's Chris across the country, I was slightly disappointed by this location. The usual adherence to some level of dress was noticeably absent. Also, my dining companions food was improperly prepared. However, it was very promptly rectified. Our server was friendly and informative. She was also incredibly slow. It was a busy night though and I will chalk her long lapses to that. Overall it was a decent experience. It was just not what I am accustomed to from this establishment.
