Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana by Ruth Fertel, a single mother of two who wanted a better life for herself and her two sons. She purchased "Chris" steakhouse in New Orleans which had been operated for the 38 years prior. She changed the name to Ruth's Chris when a fire forced her to move from the original location. Today, there are 142 Ruth’s Chris Steak House restaurants across the globe. We look forward to our opening in Gaithersburg, MD.

    Service was terrible. Had to ask for empty plates to be removed. Had to ask for water 3 times before being refilled. Waiter asked only half the table for drink orders then walked away. When bringing out a dish to our table waiter stopped at different table to address another customer. Waiter reached completely across table multiple times instead of walking to other side. Waiter placed entire palm of hand on face of plate to adjust the position of it. Had to send back 3 of 6 dishes. Had to send back 1 of the dinners back twice. This was my father’s 93rd birthday. We were completely disappointed. We regularly visit Ruth’s in the crown. This was the absolute worst experience we have ever had at any of their locations. Considering the money we spend at this location regularly this was completely unacceptable and will not be returning here any time soon.

    I had an amazing birthday dinner experience. Our table was ready on time, it had cute birthday confetti and a birthday card waiting for us. Our entrees and desserts were very delicious and flavorful ! The waiter was super friendly and informative. The manager walks around to make sure everything is going well with your visit. We had a great time & really enjoyed the food/ambience.

    Service was great - personalized and informative. We were 30 mins early for our reservation but seated right away in a boothe as we requested. Wm informed us of everything that would be happening and when. He checked back with us at the right pace to make sure all was great and refilled our water when it was getting low. interaction was perfect - not too much and not too little. TY!! Food was good but quite salty!!!! Stuffed Mush caps AND THE SHRIMP appetizers. Pinot Noir is always delicious! Steak was perfectly cooked! Desserts - bread puddn and creme bruelet were really delicious. Cost of this meal was outrageous!!!! $240.00. Can’t afford this type of dining on a teachers salary anymore!!! ✌️

    The experience was fine. There was absolutely nothing, aside from the steak, that was above and beyond just “fine”. I haven’t been to a Ruth’s Chris in quite a while but I remember more of an upscale dining experience. Some of the small details that should justify the additional cost were definitely missing. Crumbs weren’t removed from the table. After the salad course a fork was removed and not replaced prior to the arrival of the entrees. There was no “presentation” of the food. For example, we ordered from Ruth’s Classics which includes a “chef’s choice” of dessert. Dessert was brought out and placed in front of us and we weren’t told what it was. We weren’t offered coffee with dessert or a second round of drinks as ours were neared their end. Finally, as we left, there were 2 at the host stand and neither said “thanks for coming” or acknowledged our leaving in any way. Did any of these things make this a bad experience? No. However, it is disappointing to spend Ruth’s Chris money and receive service that could be had at restaurants a fraction of the cost with food that is maybe only a small step down. In summary, the food is good, the service is fine. You’ll neither be upset nor impressed. It’s just fine.

    Sat at a table where the top wasn’t securely attached to base. Too much wobbling. Unfortunately no more booth tables. Sat toward center of the room. Food was too salty for my taste. Appetizers were good. Sides decent. Service was pleasant. Overall the food is not worth the high price in my opinion. Probably a one and done for me here.

    Spinach was bland and very runny compared to past visits; my steak was under seasoned. my wife's steak was raw, sent it back to be recooked and it came back still raw. told the server that it was still raw and very blood red and not with a light pink center like my steak. my wife did not want to bother anybody to have it sent back a second time, so she ate around the raw parts and used the hot plate to help cook the other pieces by cutting it up into small pieces and turning it on the plate. was surprised that the manager did not come back to check out how the re cooked steak was. We spent over $250.00 to have a mediocre meal. We like going to Ruth Chris when we have a special occasion or a special date night. We made mention of our evening to the front hostess area and was told by another manager "that was the first he had heard of our issues." Not a good sign that a manager is not kept in the loop of issues. That comment says a lot about an establishment. We both have thought the last two times we visited that it has gone downhill.

    Welcomed warmly. Reservation was acknowledged and staff were aware of our celebration. Table was prepared with splash of confetti to enhance the experience. Service was attentive and friendly. Our waiter was Eric. He was professional and magnificent overall. Wine selection was extensive. Barbecue shrimp was savory, slightly spicy, in creamy buttery bliss. Lobster bisque is unmatched by any other restaurant and is a must. It would be included in my final meal in this life. Steaks were expectedly excellent, served in a sizzling hot plate of butter. Filet willing falls apart to be dispatched as quickly as butter, no knife needed. NY strip held its own as a firmer piece of prime, but excelled in flavor. Creamed spinach side portion was generous and filling. Hollandaise and asparagus rival peanut butter and jelly as the perfect complements. Save room for dessert and take home any leftovers.

    My wife and I went here for our anniversary. It was wonderful. Our hostess seated us immediately at a table for 4. Our waitress showed up promptly to offer us our menus and describe the specials. The food arrived with perfect spacing between thr courses and the steak is the highest quality and cooked perfectly to order. It was a perfect anniversary dinner.

    It was New Tears Eve and we sat at high top in bar. At a restaurant like RC I still expect good service. We had to ask the server to clean the table in between parties, then they did not set the table we had to ask for bread plates and utensils, water and drinks were not replenished. Food was good, but when u pay $244 for a meal service is a big component of the dining experience. We felt rushed by the server, he never went over menu or anything. Maybe they need to hire more qualified staff.

    We requested a specific table but were not given the table we had wanted. Our waiter was not extremely attentive.... although it was a very busy evening so he might have just been slightly overwhelmed. Food was very good, however my husband's ribeye was very tough and chewy.

    We go to Ruth's Chris every year on Christmas Eve. This year they initially tried to put the 4 of us at a table that was only set for 3, mainly because adding the 4th chair was going to completely block the entrance to the room so no waiter would be able to get through. I told them this wasn't acceptable and they moved us to another table. Waitress was very nice but the food took significantly longer than it has ever taken. We were completely done with our appetizers and were sitting with an empty table for at least 20 minutes before our food came out. Our waitress told us the kitchen was backed up after about 15 minutes but other than that we just sat. Food was good (my medium filet was more medium rare than my daughter's medium rare filet was) but definitely the most disappointing visit we've had.
