It was my birthday and they were so nice and polite! They even gave me a free cheesecake that said happy birthday and it was just so heartwarming.

There were six of us from work for a Holiday gathering. Service was well paced. Food was very good. Holiday decorations were very pretty. We had only one other group in the room with us, so it was very quiet. Made for easy conversation.

We've dined at Ruth's Chris many times and always enjoyed the food and the service. Unfortunately, this was an exception. The service was spotty due to new wait staff - e.g., the food seemed to have been left on the counter for a bit before being delivered to the table. The crab cakes were so oversalted that they were inedible, but they were nice enough to comp us for the entree. On the positive side, the restaurant took all the appropriate precautions for Covid - masks, social distancing, outdoor dining available - and it felt safe to dine there. We've had enough good experiences at this restaurant to give them another chance, but this occasion was a bit of a let down.

Ruth Chris is one of my husband’s favorite restaurants, so we decided to try eating there for his birthday. It was only our second time eating in a restaurant during the pandemic. I was happy to see that Ruth Chris was only seating every other table and that every employee was wearing a mask properly. But I felt concern the employees - they were standing just as close to tables as they normally would, and they did not encourage patrons to wear their masks when an employee came to the table. My husband and I both attempted to do so, but the servers typically didn’t even pause to give us that chance. Also, just a minor disappointment, it was my husband’s birthday and I noted that on the reservation. Our server asked us once we sat down and brought the rose petals to decorate our table. But when my husband didn’t want dessert, he didn’t get the “happy birthday” decorated plate they normally give - even though I got a dessert and they easily could’ve written it on the plate with my dessert. Obviously nothing major, but it was a slight disappointment. Overall, my husband and I both felt relatively safe eating there and the food was as good as always!

Ruth’s Chris’s Steak House in Durham is wonderful! This is where we always come to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Tonight we were celebrating #46. The dalads were fresh. The steaks were perfectly cooked. The mashed potatoes were buttery. The cheesecake was creamy. Justin was knowledgeable about the menu and attentive. The staff at the front was friendly. The manager visited the table and sprinkled rose petals. Everyone wore a mask, and the distance between tables was sufficient enough to make me feel safe during this lingering pandemic.

Great meal! Crab stuffed mushrooms and calamari started a relaxed meal, ribeyes seasoned and cooked to perfection; berries and cream for dessert! Very tasty meal. Lemon drop martini added to the experience. Rose petals on the table and happy birthday on the dessert plate topped off the delicious meal. Very pleasant experience. Recommend!

Our Son treated us out for a family meal to celebrate my husbands 62nd birthday.
Our Server AJ was great.

Had a few hiccups with our steaks. My Sons and Grandsons were way welldone. (asked for Medium)
My husbands Rib Eye (I know Rib Eye is supposed to be Marbely but this was way too much and floating in butter). Whilst we sent the two back my grandson ate most of my husbands steak as he was starving - so didn't have the heart to send that back too.
Therefore my husband didn't get to enjoy his meal and had to wait for my grandsons steak but by the time that arrived my son and husband had both dug into my Lamb chops. Which BTW was probably the best by far.

They did realize it was a mess of an evening and comped our coffee and desserts (which made no sense as I brought a birthday cake and 3 out of the 5 meals had dessert included) I believe they comped my Sons Lamb chops as he had them pack that too -than to go.

We made the most of the evening but I do not think My husband and I would return. was somewhat disappointing and really did not want to create a fuss and insult or son. But for the prices they charge and the fact there were hardly and customers due to Covid you'd think they would get it right!.

Apart from our server - nothing really impressed us for an upscale restaurant. Been to better and definitely had better.

On the whole we enjoyed being with the family and made the most of it as one would.
