I went for my 30th birthday and I really enjoyed it! My waiter was amazing and funny! The table was de prayed with birthday confetti and a card from the rest which I thought was sweet!

Food quality was excellent as per usual. However we felt that the service was a little off tonight. Our waitress was not very reactive. Waited quite awhile before getting greeted. Slow to react. Main meal arrived and old plates still on table. Not the best server by a long shot.

Not as organized as it used to be. Carolyn, who was the hostess for years, was not there so therefore we were forgotten. Our reservations were at 6:30, which we were a few minutes early. We went to the bar and waited 20 minutes until we went out to the hostess to see if our table was ready. They seated us immediately after that. Our server, Pat, was pleasant, but after the dinner was served she seemed to busy to get back to us in a prompt manner.
Our meal was great. The steaks were cooked perfectly and so tender. The Caesar salad and the creamed spinach were good as always.

It's nice that they have finally redecorated, as it was musty for years. Not sure who the manager is as no manager stopped by like they used to do.

We were celebrating our anniversary, which they made notice by sprinkling rose petals on our table and took a picture after we had finished dinner. That was a nice touch.

All in all, we had a pleasant dinner.

The food was excellent and the service was as well.
There were two of us celebrating our birthdays and Ruth’s Chris honored both of us by decorating the table, giving both us a birthday card, as well as a complementary dessert each, and it was absolutely delicious.
I would highly recommend this elegant restaurant to celebrate special occasions

The true test of a restaurant would be on a hi-volume, hi-stress day like Christmas, and I must say that Ruth's Chris certainly has their act together. Although they were mobbed when we arrived for our reservation, we were seated a short time later. Our server, Jennypher, was most pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient. The steaks and sides we ordered were perfect and delicious. All in all, a solid "10."

Christmas Day Dinner was amazing. Our waiter Sean handled our table of 10 with ease, accuracy and professionalism! He gave excellent suggestions and the appetizers, entrees, and desserts were perfect. The speciality drinks were made to perfection!
Steaks- one word: EXCELLENT! We are never disappointed with Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Perfect 10 across the board.

It was a last minute birthday dinner and in the beginning staff was very attentive. Our Waiter was great, however when he received a large party of 12 right in front of us, he tended to forget us and his assistant, son to another staff member, he was forever lost and not attentive at all! Forgot to bring us bread, never filled our water, passed us when we waved him over. He ruined the waiters attempt of being attentive.

We decided to go to Ruth's Chris for our first wedding anniversary and we were so glad we did. We had reservation for 7:30 PM Dec 2nd but we came a little early to just seat at the bar and have a drink. The staff at the bar could not be nicer. They tried hard to please us.. and Allyson picked a good Cabernet for me.
We got to our table and they had a beautiful note congratulating us for our Anniversary including some rose petals. Our waitress was Dominique. What a lovely lady. First..you can tell she is doing this for a long time. Next time we go,.. I want her back. She was extremely attentive and very nice to us. We ordered the BBQ shrimp .... O M G .... it was delicious. I didn't know what was better.. the sauce or the butter for the bread. I had the 16oz ribeye and my husband had the 22oz filet. Cooked perfect.. just like we asked. The lobster mac & cheese was amazing as well as the asparagus.
The whole experience was just very nice... and as we just had dinner at Gordon Ramsey's Steak House.. in wish we spent $500 for the two of us and the food was not even close to this dinner tonight.
All staff was very well organized ... fast..but careful. Even Miguel (from Portugal) stopped by and say hi, When you have staff like this.. means you have good management as well. BRAVO.
I want to thank the whole staff.. especially Dominique for making this Anniversary a wonderful one. We definitely be back, before our next one. :-)

Food was outstanding! Service was the worst I’ve ever experienced especially for a restaurant with nobody there. There were three of us at the bar and a table of about 20 people in the restaurant side. The women from the large party kept coming to the bar every 15 minutes to get drinks and we were completely ignored the whole time. Bartender started off great and went down from there once 3/4 girls every 10-15 mintews keot coming up for drinks. The manger saw the whole thing happen before his eyes and did absolutely nothing about it.
I would of expected more from Ruth Chris’s as the experience at the Boston location has always been outstanding. We were also celebrating my boyfriends retirement as he took a vacation and is going back to finally let his workplace know he is retiring. Ruth Chris was well aware of this special occasion when booked through Open Tsble. Not even an acknowledgement.

The food was absolutely delicious. I added a note on the reservation that it was for our anniversary and they put rose pedals and little hearts on the table for us. So cute, I'm cheesy like that and loved it!! They took brought out the dessert with Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the plate and took a picture of us with the dessert and gave us a card with the picture in it. Really a nice night!!

Not a good ambience. Dark and noisy. Better ambience at the Ruth Chris located in Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, or Coral Gables.

The food was good. Best things were sitting at a table in the bar waiting for our dinner table, cocktails, and the appetizers.

Waiter forgot our wine order at dinner. Had to ask for bread and water.

I was there for Thanksgiving dinner. The turkey was salty, rubbery and cold. Bad experience.
I went to your restaurant two years ago for Thanksgiving and they ran out of sweet potatoes.
Never going back for the holidays. It's usually good during the other parts of the year.
The restaurant is too crowded and disorganized on Thanksgiving. You should think about
closing for now on and giving your employees the night off. You are giving yourself a bad
reputation by staying open with mediocre food on that special day.
Just a thought.
p.s. Gloria is always wonderful. So sorry to hear that Carolyn is having health issues.
She is a sweetheart.

The thanksgiving meal was great but the service was not that great maybe due to it being so busy but it’s my second year ina row for the thanksgiving dinner.
Very pleased with the turkey, dressing and sweet potato casserole and the barbecue shrimp appetizer was good too
