Our waitress talked the talk but never walked the walk. My steak had it be sent back because it was well done instead of medium. The cappuccino was not hot and the service was exceptionally slow even though they were not busy. Not consistent with Ruth’s Chris.

Thanksgiving Day special menu food was rather bland. I should have ordered steak or lamb chops..Server was forgetful....Didn't offer Thanksgiving Day to go treats that was advertised on Ruth Chris web page...Didn't offer dessert that was also included with Thanksgiving Day special...Guest sitting next to our table experienced the same forgetful service we dismissed the forgetfulness to our server being stressed...

We went there for Thanksgiving. We were a bit early for our reservation and they sat us immediately. It was a bit of a walk for my mum as we were all the way in the back. It was the first time they had been there and our waiter Abdel made it wonderful!! The food was great and it was a great time to spend with my parents and the rest of my family.

Love Ruth's Chris chopped salad. Steaks are always perfectly cooked and sizzling! Best dessert in a long time - berries and cream! Yum! We were here for our Thanksgiving dinner while visiting from out of town.

I made reservations through Open Table and simply posted about occasion as anniversary. We were seated and congratulated on our anniversary. Our table was decorated with confetti and an happy anniversary card. Everyone that came to our table said happy anniversary. The meal was superb, as always. After our meal we were presented with a fabulous dessert congratulating us again on our anniversary. Ruth Chris went above and beyond, thank you!

Been to RCSH before but this time as a vegan. I know, steakhouse right. Even though they modified a salad for me making it vegan it would be nice to have at least one or two complete vegan meals available for those who accompany non-vegans to the establishment. Just a thought.

Food was excellent. Service left something to be desired. Out salads were not even finished yet when the steaks came out and were put on the table. Felt like we were being rushed through dinner. Coffee was ice cold at dessert and it took over 30 minutes after we were done with dessert forbus to receive our check. I've been to several Ruths Chris and this was the first bad experience so I would just avoid this location....

Nice environment and wonderful service. Meat was just good, but comes too oily instead of been grilled. Not bad at all but a matter of taste, and I’d rather the latter. Otherwise everything was really nice.

This was my first trip to any Ruth's Chris. We had a 9:15 p.m. reservation, the restaurant was pretty empty and yet we had to wait for a table. The service was slow and the servers seemed a little confused. The steaks were very good and 2 cooked correctly. The other that was ordered 'medium' came out quite rare. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes and the crab fried rice was not good. We did the special that included started, entree, side & dessert. When we finished our entree's, the server asked if we would like dessert -- I reminded her that dessert was included; maybe she thought we'd skip it. My husband and I are fans of good quality, high-end steakhouses and I would not put this up there with one.

Food and service good but aging furniture and cleanlinrss (gnat problem in bar area) did not reflect the price. They need to add a $ to the price range. If you have a drink or two, difficult to spend less that $100 per person.

Overall a lovely family dinner. Thanks
