We were completely unimpressed. With menus that look like they came from a diner, a paltry selection of wines by the glass, and few options outside of steak (only 1 fish), the menu here is thin and ridiculously overpriced for a steakhouse.

$200 w/trip for 2 glasses of wine, 2 entrees and a side is pushing it - but I’d be ok with it if it were an overall great experience.

The circumstances here were unfortunately far from that. The service was adequate - not more. The food was fine, but the kitchen didn’t respect my ask and drenched my fish in butter (what I’d specifically asked they not do). I do appreciate that they corrected the problem quickly - but at this price point, that should not happen.

I’ve been to many Ruth’s Chris around the country - this visit proved to me that the company is trading on the name, not the quality of its food and aervice.

Best everything! Wonderful selection on the menu. Perfectly prepared bone in ribeye! Melt in your mouth perfection!. And being a vegetarian myself I thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of sides available to me on their menu.! I had a smorgasbord of vegetables which made me extremely happy. The wine list was exquisite. And the drinks/cocktails were not watered down! I can’t wait to go back and enjoy another meal. This is what I call fine dining!!! And as a added bonus they even had a separate menu for gluten-free items! These people have gone the extra mile to make everyone’s food Preferences available.

Very bad food, a salad that comes from the chopped supermarket bag, even a piece of dry mushroom on top, a fish that tastes like it has defrosted without any seasoning work, we asked for it without garlic and maybe they don't know how else to do it, a Ribeye wasn't bad at all, but seared doesn't mean burnt, and forget about the price, everyone knows it's an expensive restaurant, but not fair for the food they serve.

I took my boyfriend for his birthday because he has never been. I had only been to the Ruth’s Chris in Los Angeles and had a great experience. The host was very welcoming and placed a happy birthday card on the table which was a nice touch. They were out of ribeye which is what we both wanted to order. The waiter forgot to get us bread and refill water. The filet was dry and poorly seasoned. Cheesecake was the most appetizing part of the meal.

Took a long time for our Cocktails to come out, my Prosecco was served in a Champagne glass. I never had Wine 🍷 serve at a restaurant in a Champagne glass. I guess because we had a 9:00pm dinner reservation, they ran out of cream spinach that my husband ordered.

A FAREWELL GOODBYE TO CAROLYN, WHO IS RETIRING AND I AM SURE ALL THE GUESTS WILL MISS HER AS MUCH AS I WILL. JEREMY, TH GM WILL HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME FINDING A REPLACEMENT AS COMPETENT AND LIKEABLE AS SHE WAS. SIMPLY THE BEST. I WISH HER GOOD HEALTH AND HAPPINESS

I love this place, and have eaten here for years. However, the prices have gotten to be ridiculous. It’s time to cut them down a bit and the place will be filled to the rafters.

Came here on Christmas evening with the family……first time dining here especially on a holiday and the hostess was not very jolly. We sat down at our table with a reservation and was explained the menu by our server. We ordered apps and steaks with lobster tails and sides. Very expensive but very good. 4 stars. Will dine here again in the future.

My first mistake was ordering a fish entree at a steak-house.My second mistake was to order a different fish dish when the manager kindly withdrew the original dish after acknowledging the “sea-bass” had the texture of rubber. The second dish arrived and the salmon was so over-cooked it was dry. The side dishes were fine but the restaurant ambiance was spoiled by the smell of heated butter everywhere… it reminded me of being too close to a movie theater concession stand.

I was happy with drinks, the waitress was good, and the manager helpful … but the food was beyond disappointing, and the bill eye-watering considering the inedible entrees.

Stick with meat and/or lobster for your next trip here.

The lobster bisque was too salty, and the crab cakes were, too. When my husband stepped outside to take a phone call (important--he's a surgeon and it was the hospital), they locked the door and he couldn't get back into the restaurant! The maitre d' was at the hostess stand and ignored him! He had to text me to come let him back into the restaurant! The maitre d' pretended he didn't see me letting him in! It was horrible. The asparagus was completely overcooked and stringy--my steak knife couldn't even cut through it! It was the worst visit we've ever had, and we have been going there for Christmas Eve for years.

The food was horrible. I ordered the sea bass and it smelled awful and tasted even worse. The Parmesan crust was a mush of bread crumbs on the top and the sea bass was soggy and smelly. Never again will we visit this location. The service was so bad a table of 5 people next to us walked out because the server took so long to get them even an appetizer. I hope they are able to turn this restaurant around because I have been to Chicago location where the food abs service were phenomenal so it is possible for them. If you want sea bass go to Cafe Mortaranos you won’t regret it.

We were excited to bring our guests for "the best steak of their lives", but 3 out of 6 of them were well-done (not medium as requested). I don't know about you, but when the steak is brown-grey inside, charred/crunchy on the outside, it just tastes like roast beef jerky. It was disappointing. Having said that, the service from Anthony was the best part! I'm not one to send things back as I feel that doesn't make a smooth evening, I'm sure they wouldve fixed it- just important to note that the server explains "medium" as a bright pink center.. and there was no pink whatsoever. Thanks, Renee
