    Service: incredible 10/10 Atmosphere: great 10/10 Food: the steak could have used a lot more seasoning, but it was the PERFECT cook (I got mine medium). Dessert was yummyyyyy. Overall, great place! If you are a steak-lover, it could be a hit or miss if you like the seasoning or not. Great experience with great staff! :)

    Excellent service and food. It was crowded so a little noisy as to be expected on NYE except maybe for the crying baby but can’t control that. Only little nit is one of our party ordered a manhattan drink but there was no red vermouth or dark cherries which was surprising since it was NYE

    We’ve been coming to RC for years to celebrate our anniversary, holidays and birthdays. It’s a wonderful place to do that. The ambiance, service and food are excellent. This New Year’s Eve we went to RC and we’re not disappointed. Our server was super and our steak, crab cakes, and au gratin potatoes were delicious. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 was because of a large group near our table. There were 3 adults and 5 children. The children were running around the entire area, yelling and screaming, playing on the floor, bumping into trays of hot food being served by other servers. the baby in the stroller was seriously crying. The adults were not correcting the children at all. Our server kept apologizing. I wish they had been put in a private room. They were very annoying. I don’t have a problem bringing children to a restaurant but they need to know how to behave. We won’t let this one incident stop us from going back. It’s our favorite restaurant.

    Very disappointed in Filet Mignon and lobster tail. Lamb chops fatty. Gibson’s Steak House in Chicago a lot better. One of us ordered Chef special of 6oz filet and 8oz lobster tail. Other ordered 11oz filet and separate lobster tail entree that 2 were going to share lobster tail. Both filets looked same size. My husband has cooked his own filet and lobster tails from Jewel food store and they tasted better. Will not visit a Ruth’s Chris again.

    I had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner. The restaurant even had a Santa and an elf greeting people. The food was excellent as was the service. The noise level was perfect. I guess it wasn’t energetic but it was just right and they had Christmas music playing in the background with fires lit.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Ruth's Chris. My husband and I each had the Ribeye, and it was delicious. Our daughter tried the crab cakes and loved them. We had the fire-roasted corn for the first time, and it was so good. We'll definitely get it again. Our server and his assistants were outstanding. Overall a really wonderful experience.
