For Valentine's week, we went to Ruth's Chris Feb 14, but we went to Capital Grill Saturday, Feb 10. Ruth's 11 ounce fillet mignon steak was slighly better (more buttery), but the treatment was better at Capital grill. Capital presented my date a red rose. We received a between-course appetizer treat. And, while we did not order desert, Capital Grill brought us two mini-cheesecakes anyway, which were gratis.
With tip, I spent $300 at each restaurant. If in 2019 Valentine's Day should fall on a weekend (this year it fell on a Wednesday), then we will be eating at Capital Grill and skipping Ruth's Chris. It has become "just okay" for the money.
Finally, while Ruth's Chris did give me a $25 off coupon towards our next dinner there, it expires on March 30. I think expiration dates are for coupons from Burger King. I don't need any extra pressure in life to keep up with a 45-day expiration date. It's a very generous coupon, but it shouldn't expire so soon.
I think Ruth's Chris is a little overpriced. However, service was outstanding and our server, Christos, made some recommendations that we appreciated.
The Durham location didn’t honor my preference for a booth (seating).
It was awful, the service was great but i had a long piece of air in my lobster.. That ruined it for me.
Fantastic ! Celebrated my anniversary!
It was our 22nd wedding anniversary
Our 48th Anniversary. Service was very good, food was great b
My husband and I visited during Restaurant Week. I made a reservation plenty of time ahead and a table was ready and waiting for us when we walked in a few minutes early. We were seated and given water promptly. The waitress came to ask if we had questions - although we were prepared to order immediately (thanks to the availability of the shortened online menu) she did not take our order and hurriedly left our table. We finally ordered and although the restaurant was not busy our first course came out at about average speed. My husband ordered the seafood/sausage gumbo. It was boasted to include sausage, shrimp, and crab meat. Within the bowl he received, there were two quarter slices of sausage, one shrimp, and no crab. He said the broth was amazing but not at all what he was expecting. My Caesar salad was very delicious and the size was absolutely perfect. We ordered the pork tenderloin and salmon as our entrees and added the scalloped potatoes and fiery corn as our sides. The corn was amazing and I highly recommend. The potatoes were under-seasoned but fine. My salmon was overcooked and way too salty. I covered it with the under-seasoned potatoes and it was balanced. Dessert was delicious. Overall, the $100 price tag was a bit much considering the food was slightly above average, but the atmosphere and service was very average. So at the end of the day, I'm not really sure what you're paying for when you go on a regular night. Underwhelming to say the least.
Great food and service but it was “restaurant week” in Durham and the crowd was a bit more “boisterous” than normal.
The food as always was excellent. The service also was excellent. We go to this restaurant at least 4 times a year and always on our anniversary.
Food and service were excellent as always. However, we were not prepared for the loud noise
level which was due to the restaurant week special. That will not prevent our returning there
for another fine meal and great service.
Tried this out during Triangle Restaurant Week. Excellent fixed price menu and good value. Christos was an outstanding server and the food was very good. Not the best steak I've ever had and not worth the full price, but it was great for a restaurant week option. You can get a comparable meal at a better value but you can't beat the authentic steakhouse atmosphere.
That was my first time visiting the establishment. The wait time was as expected for restaurant week. Good seating area, nice and quiet. Lighting was good. Waiter was lovely, however our food came an hour after we ordered. We noticed other patrons who came in after us was served their food before ours (we were party of 3). Food was amazing though, and he offered a free side of mashed potatoes for the wait. Drinks were good, and so was dessert. The bathrooms could use some work. Toilets weren't working properly, and no toilet tissue on top of that. Overall, nice visit.
From the start of our dining experience at Ruth Chris’s with the friendly, helpful, professional efficient staff to the satisfying dessert, we enjoyed it all. The food was delicious and I appreciate the attention the staff paid to my food allergy. Thank you!
AJ our server was amazing! We enjoyed the ‘restaurant week” prifixe menu with a few extras.
It was all delicious and amazing!
Everything was great in all aspects!
It was very crowded as usual for a Friday and restaurant week. My steak was undercooked, potato had large black spots throughout, and the steak was woefully under seasoned. I was pretty disappointed. The service was attentive but the fact that nothing was done to rectify missteps was surprising.
Pharrah was our server and she was wonderful. Perfectly timed meal, very knowledgeable and accommodating. Food was delicious and I tried new dishes as well as old favorites.
The food was as fabulous as it has always been. Though very friendly, the server was not quite as professional this time.
We enjoyed Amanda’s service and courtesy! And Curt (Manager) was very hospitable and professional!
