I had read some of the negative reviews prior to going to our diner reservation. We did not have any of the problems mentioned in the reviews. Our server John was excellent. Our food was served timely, hot and cooked as specified. Special thanks to Manger, Matt. We had a great dinner

Surprisingly poor service for Ruth Chris. The server was more interested in cleaning up the table so they could put stuff away then she was in either what we needed or getting the check. The rest of the waiters and staff were moving tables and rearranging the restaurant and setting up for opening The following day, a few yelling back-and-forth about basketball and a couple complaining that they had to move Tables.

Surprisingly and shockingly poor for Ruth Chris. I’ve generally had pretty positive experiences with them elsewhere.

Great food and great service. It was just a bit too crowded for my tastes. We had to ask to be moved to a cozier spot, but it still didn't feel cozy and romantic.

Waiter was warm, positive and friendly. Food including the wine was very good.

As always, meal was excellent. Server was personable but not very attentive. On Valentine's Day, one expects slower-than-average service; however, server did not appear to have too many tables. The wait to get drinks, dessert menu, check, etc. was much too long. My date and I were otherwise pleased with our dining experience, especially how quickly our entrees were prepared. The server experience will not keep us from returning!

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).

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.
