Food and service were absolutely excellent. My rating is 3 stars because of the noise. There was sax player going table to table and it was so loud you could not talk at the table. If you want a quiet dinner, call and check the music first.

It was our anniversary. We have been to some of the fine dining establishments. We had never considered Ruth Chris because of poor reviews on YELP. Decided to try since OpenTable app had higher reviews. I should have stayed with Yelp. Given a very private table. That was fine. View of the bar and the workers standing around talking with nothing to do- or do they? Also, I guess they were guest of the hotel or condos that are maybe associated with Ruth Chris? Kids walking thru w/o parents. Adults walking thru looking like they had just left tennis courts. I have no idea where they were going but exited to the back patio. If it is a pass thru, it should be stopped. The water boy was fine. He kept water glasses full and bread on table. Not sure who was to remove our cocktail glasses or refill my husbands tea. He ran out twice and had to wait five and ten minutes before a refill. Our main waiter was visiting. A lot. My steak was to be Med rare. It was Med to Med well. My husbands was Med well, which is how he ordered. Shared a wedge salad-nothing special. Baked potato-nothing special. Brussel sprouts- burned. I could eat them but my husband hated them. Looked online at Ruth Chris food pics and the sprouts pictured were still green. Mine were brown and dry. Going back to trying to find a fine dining experience near our home.

Our meal was fabulous as was our service. I had the bone-in strip steak which was very flavorful and tender, while my wife had the appetizer seafood tower which was enough for her meal and provided me with an appetizer of a shrimp cocktail as well.

 (Columbus)·Dined on August 4, 2017

They advertised Summer menu but it's ended at 6:30 but no where was the mentioned clearly if I would have know we would have readjusted our Reservation . Ordered white wine it was never put into a chiller just left on the table for the Florida humidity to get ahold of it. Salads and sides where very small. I see why they went out of business in Columbus . They can't not compete With hyde park or Eddie Merlot's if you want amazing steak and amazing service I would recommend mcguires Irish pub . There steaks and service blow ruth Chris out of the water. I recommend saving your money and passing on ruth Chris

We did our reservation with the OpenTable app. It was very easy and convenient. Restaurant called earlier in day to confirm reservation. We will continue to use opentable for reservations if available.

This was a Wrap-up session & celebration to a 7 week project that included some extensive travel and dealing with many different cultures. We informed the wait staff of our intentions to have an unhurried quite time to enjoy the evening including the entire dining experience.....nice cocktail pre food time ....then excellent main course eating and even after diner time to reflect on the project and make preperations for the future.
The staff listened to our desire & plan for the evening, then without-a-blink provided the exact atmosphere and Professional Attention to my partner and myself. The food was excellent as expected......it was a pleasure to have the employees on the floor not only complement the well known kitchen and food, but cause the dining experience at Dustin Ruth Chris to be in the top 25 dining experiences that we have had during our 70 years.
Job very well done! ....we will be back
