Dined here for a birthday and work anniversary celebration. The food was excellent, served piping hot, even the appetizer. The server was attentive, but not overly so. She did an excellent job! Sorry, forgot her name. The steaks lived up to their reputation- so good! We ordered the creme brulee for dessert - very tasty! Also, were surprised with our own individual chocolate mousse cups to celebrate- one for the birthday and the other congrats for the work anniversary. Would definitely recommend for special occasions!

While expensive, the value was there. It was a wonderful experience. We were treated so well by the staff and the food was delicious. Plus, we had enough food leftover for a second meal to take home.

The food was amazing as usual. Ruth Chris consistently serves the best food. We were shocked about the poor service. We were checked on only one time during our meal, and ran out of beverages and water. We intended on ordering dessert for our anniversary but we waited so long for our plates to be cleared and our server to come back by that we no longer were interested.

The food was sub par. The service was good. The noise level was quite loud. Definitely over priced steak. We have been wanting to go to Ruth’s Chris for years to try their steak. We seriously could not believe how over priced and also awful the New York Srip we got was esp for $55 a pop. The lobster bisque was very strange tasting. We are steak and lobster bisque connoisseurs and these were not good! A glass of wine is $20.

I took my niece for her birthday to dinner and we had a wonderful experience from start to finish. The food was just incredible and the service was top notch. Joyce was our server and she was so wonderful to us. She brought my 11 year old niece a special “cocktail” and we shared a birthday dessert. The steak was cooked perfectly and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I can’t wait to come back!

Kurt was a outstanding server, along with his helpers. The only thing that could be improved is my desert. The sugar was burned rather than melted. It should never have been brought out.

We went here for our anniversary. It was a lovely evening so we requested to sit outside beside busy Monroe St. It was pleasant watching people walk by on the sidewalk and occasionally exchanging smiles. We could converse easily without worrying about being overheard. The noise from the traffic was not bad. Joyce, our waitress, was so attentive and kind. We never had to wait an undue length for attention.
Joyce presented the menu orally with comments about most entries, never once looking at the menu itself. I love when the wait staff is that knowledgeable. She explained that almost all entrees are big enough to be shared. She said everything at this place is "big" and she was correct.
We started with their seared ahi tuna which was on a mustard-beer sauce and with a small English cucumber salad. Delicious - we ate every bite. For our main entree we ordered the "Porterhouse for Two" which was huge(40oz). As sides we ordered the garlic mashed potatoes (so creamy) & "Ruth's Chopped Salad" (delicious and again there was nothing left on our plates).
The filet side of the porterhouse was just as you would expect-crazy good. Unfortunately the New York Strip side had an unacceptable amount of gristle. Joyce was horrified and immediately replaced it with a new (even larger and fork tender) New York Strip at, of course, no charge. The manager also came out to us and profusely apologized.
For dessert we ordered their bread pudding which has a Jack Daniels Whisky sauce. We were pretty full at that point but still enjoyed it so much-the part that we could eat. Amusingly, the bread pudding came out with a chocolate inscription saying "Happy 54th Birthday". Joyce was upset but we thought it was funny and said it would make the dinner memorable in one more way.
Joyce packed the leftovers (quite a bit & including the gristly steak) in a nice bag. We have made several meals and our dog enjoyed chewing on the gristle. It was expensive but worth it for a special memory.

They are the best with their steaks. The bone-in-ribeye was only a few dollars more than the regular ribeye and was bursting with flavor. Highly worth the slight up charge. Great service.

Our server was Kurt, who was very helpful in explaining the menu and made several useful comments which was nice because this was our first visit to Ruth's Chris. The food was top-notch, and the pace of the meal was just right. At the end, a complimentary birthday treat was brought out which was a nice way to complete the experience.
