    The waiter did not provide a good service. The steak wasn't cooked to the satisfaction of Ruth Chris norm. I asked for medium well and the server brought out medium rare.

    My food &amp; daughter was not hot. My husband enjoyed his hot steak! My server was slow no time management when doing multiple tables. They were out of bread when we were seated. Other tables that arrived after us got bread before us. The waiter package up our leftovers and we told her we wanted all of our food. After getting home she didn’t honor our request. However I call the manger and he made me a fresh sweet potato casserole dish.

    The food was fine but nothing to make me remember it as a place wanting to go back for more. The salads each had 1 cherry tomato sliced in half which was underwhelming. The steak was more meduim-rare than medium so we left them on the plated to cook from the plate heat. (Maybe this is how it supposed to be done.) But it did taste good. The side was a nice portion. The cheesecake desert was sad. It had a single strawberry that was sliced but you couldn't tell it was sliced because they did not spread it out. It looks nothing like the desserts they show on their website which was disappointing. Maybe I misunderstood the idea of this restaurant but it felt extremely overpriced for the quality and amount and variety on the menu.

    I’ve been to Ruth’s Chris many times before and always had fabulous food, service and a nice place to dine. My food was not up to par this time and I did say something to my waiter later on a manager did come out but didn’t do anything about it. He informed me that his head chef knew the difference between a ribeye and a strip steak, but perhaps comping some thing off my bill should’ve been suggested. I ordered a petite ribeye, medium rare it was a little overdone but that wasn’t a big of a deal to me as the fact that it was not a nice ribeye cut. It was more like a strip steak and it had a vein of grizzle going down the one side which was inedible. I do feel that as high as our bill was, they could’ve at least offered to take 10% off. I would’ve been happy with that. As picture shows this was not medium rare and you can see the grizzle that was not able to be chewed in the picture. By time the manager came out it was way too late to of taken them up on their offer of giving me another steak.

    The food was delicious, but it took almost an hour for us to get it. We were starving by the time our entrees came, and that’s with eating the breads and salad. By the time they started clearing our table for the dessert we had ordered, we had to request it to go. Because we had just been there for over two hours and we were tired and so ready to go. Food was good but experience was below average. No fault of the server, she did great.

    Waiter pointed out that "Restaurant Week" price was comparable to regular combinations which was helpful in our decision-making. Waiter asked about substituting different vegetables ("no") which we appreciated. We were impressed that our waiter insisted that a family seated near us (also one of his tables) use the appropriate seat for their baby. We were VERY DISPLEASED to learn Ruth's Chris will not allow checks to be split. This will definitely impact our future visits. We will opt to go elsewhere where customers come first.

    Four of us went to celebrate my adult son’s birthday. We had a 4:15 reservation. We enjoyed everything. We ordered our appetizers. We wanted the Calamari but was told they were out. We ordered the Jumbo Scallops. They were delicious but only came with 3. My daughter and I had to split one so my son and his girlfriend could have one each. I think you need to put an even number of shrimp 🍤 on your appetizers. Rarely people dine in odd numbers. Food and service was beyond our expectations. Really Superb!!!

    Ruth's Chris is incredibly consistent with their cook - they'll nail a medium, medium rare, or medium well every time. I've never had an issue with temperature and the sizzling plate never gets old. Even when very busy it never gets loud and its easy to converse at your table. Could use a bit brighter, more natural lighting. But the windowless warm light theme seems to be a stake house thing. Like everything else, prices have notched up a bit; value is still good but a notch lower than what I'd previously given. Bit overall still highly recommended.

    Fabulous steaks, sides, and drinks. Great for a special occasion. Be prepared to spend. It was about 250 after tip for the two of us (each had a ribeye and shared two sides), one drink each, plus desert we shared. We expected that, so it was no problem for us.

    My husband and I went to Ruth Chris to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the service was awful. Our waiter barely said anything to us the entire night and we had to make repeated attempts to get his attention just to refill our drinks. The petite filet that I ordered had no flavor whatsoever. Our experience wasn’t the best which put a damper on our anniversary celebration since going to dinner was a big part in our evening.
