This is my favorite place to go. They fix things that I can’t fix at home.

For a steakhouse charging $50+/steak you would assume the steaks would be cooked to perfection. Not so. My medium NY Strip was no less than medium-well and my wife’s medium filet was well done and charred in certain places. If this were Golden Corral no one would care. But Ruth’s Chris should do better. For a truly amazing dining experience at a similar price there is no reason not to go to The Capital Grille just down the street. Combined with the table of 10 seated next to us that had a small child yelling “mommy” for 45 minutes, our dining experience was less than ideal. No doubt, the “mommy”’kid was not the restaurant’s fault, but combined with the crappy steak it made for an even crappier experience. Further, when an appetizer of crab-stuffed mushrooms is brought out in about 180 seconds, it makes me skeptical as to the freshness of said crab-stuffed mushrooms. Me thinks these crabs and mushrooms were zapped in a microwave. The taste did nothing to dissuade my theory.

The lobster and steak wasn't as good as expected. Have tasted better during other visits to the restaurant. Mojito was just average.

For the price, I personally prefer other restaurants for the food. My dad loves Ruth’s Chris so we came here for his birthday. It’s great service and ambience, but the food itself is pricey for the taste.

Service was delayed. Sat 10 mins without being greeted. Food was great! Server just wasn’t very attentive.
