I had a reservation four days prior and had confirmed thru the email and the phone call I received but yet when I got there the table was not available I had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. Later on I received an email from opentable “we missed you tonight”

They definitely had an off night. Everyone was nice but the service and food prep was not what you come to expect from RC. They comp’d a dessert up charge....seemed like a weak response given the experience.

Wonderful food, however, we had our young daughter with us and wanted to substitute French fries from kids menu for a baked potato that she loved. Waitress came back and claimed it could not be swapped, even though the kids meal was already $14.00. Really????? One baked potato??????? Ridiculous.
Colossally overpriced, but food was good. Service was just ok.

Did the Ruth’s Classic again. Great salad, ribeye cooked as requested and creamed spinach never disappoints. Natasha did a great job as always. Hostess could not have been more attentive.

Wow, where to begin. This place has been the BEST Ruth's Chris I have ever been to. They are so genuine, kind and professional! I like to mention these 5 (although there are many others at this location) individuals that made Valentine's the most memorable in my 39 years. Tia is always great to work with. Max our waiter is excellent, she is so sweet and on point. Super friendly and hope to work with her again. Yinka and Jamelle made EVERYTHING so special for my guest and I. Literally I had purchased a dozen red roses and some godiva chocolate and asked if they could have them placed on the table upon my arrival. My guest was amazed (as was I) on how perfect they made everything! Every detail, from even putting some rose pedals on the table and set in a very quite location. I really thank you! I would also like to mention Ms.Elizabeth. Everytime I call Ruth's Chris, see is so pleasant. Bravo to all, you would make Ruth Fertel proud!!!

Jamelle was a waiter at another Ruth's Chris, and now a Manager! I knew he would bring extra leadership. He is excellent and a great team player I am so happy for him. Yinka is the GM and they both ROCK!! Kudos

This is my favorite Ruth's Chris location; the atmosphere is less stuffy than others we have been to. The meal was good. However, after a similar meal at an independent steakhouse with one location, I will say it was not great. Given the prices at RC, this was a disappointment. The bar menu looked good, and a much better value. Our waitress provided exceptional service and was the bright spot of the visit.
