Waitress started off fine. Then after appetizer we wanted another glass of wine and waited for over 20 mins we seen her pass us many times but could not get her attention. Finally we asked buss person and he sent over another waiter who I guess took over table with no explanation. One of the fillets was butterflied for Med Rare without asking us. Never had such bad service from any of the Ruth’s Chris I’ve been to.

The service was excellent the meal was excellent couldn’t have asked for better. Tables a bit to close together in my opinion so private conversations were hard to have but the rest was wonderful! Thank you to all the staff!

You know what you get at Ruth Chris. It was delicious and the service was fantastic. When it comes to this restaurant, the locations are what make the experiences more enhanced. For example the Ruth Chris in the old Boston City Hall. Food just as good but a better venue

This was for my husband’s 70th Birthday. The food was very good. My husband and son savored the two meat specials. I had excellent crab cakes. Staff made it special with fun beads and candle on his cake. This place is very pricey so we may go again on his 75th Birthday

I have been to Ruth Chris many time and was always happy with my experience, this time the waiter had forgot to put in my order and then the filet came out butterflied and tasted like a cheap piece of sirloin. I was not charged for the filet but the meal itself was ruined. In addition the desserts we had were terrible as well. Have to say it was a major disappointment for my anniversary and daughter's birthday dinner.

Another awesome meal at Ruth’s Chris! The steak melted in our mouths. The Brussels sprouts and creamed spinach were delish and who doesn’t love garlic mashed potatoes?! Everything was piping hot. And we washed everything down with a very boozy margarita. YUM! Trish was awesome in the waitstaff category. We’ll be back!

The gentleman at the desk was rude. He didn’t look up and barley acknowledged us. When he stopped by the tables later to check on things it was perfunctory. I don’t think he likes his job! Every other staff member was extremely friendly and genuinely seemed to like their jobs! Rachel was our wait person and very professional.

We ordered petite filets and they were not sizzling when we arrived. This is the second time that has happened to us. The sizzling is part of the experience. We were disappointed in that. However, the food was excellent as usual.

You can't get a better steak anywhere in the state including David Burkes as well as the crème brulee.

Everything was delicious as usual! My husband loved the crablegs and I enjoyed the wedge salad to start! We both had steaks, his was a delicious Wagu Ribeye and I had my usual New York strip! You won't be disappointed! Staff is excellent, especially Kasey!

Disappointed-
Had reservation- but table wasn't set up before being brought to it and it was set for four instead of two- Rose petals were dropped on table in front of us.
It was a Monday night- weren't many people, and yet our first drinks took quiet a bit of time to get to us (waitress stated bar was busy). When husband asked for a second beer, it didn't arrive till after dinner (and still showed up on bill)- I didn't get a chance to order a second during dinner, by default got an after-dinner coffee (which did have alcohol in it) so I had something while my husband had his beer. Positive note- my Dirty Martini was probably the best I've had, would have loved to of tried another cocktail with my dinner.
Seemed to have plenty of people to bring dishes or clear dishes, but no one to help out what appeared to be an solo waitress and ask if we needed anything. Very surprised no manager visited as well- they might've been able to attend to us a bit. So for this visit- not found to be a good value.

We had a wonderful time . Great staff . My only complaint would be the plate is so hot I would recommend medium rare if you like pink center because the plate being so hot , it’s still cooking while on your table . I wish they just took it out a little sooner. The cheesecake is delicious 😋 and stuffed mushrooms were out of this world .

Ruth's Chris is one of the best dining experiences one could have. I do attribute some of this to the party I was in, but everything from the service to the food to the ambiance was as good as it gets. It is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Stephanie was fantastic with the menu and happily accommodated us with any requests we had. She was assisted by Curt, who was quick and very friendly as well.

The food was a 10/10. Petite ribeye, N.Y. strip, Wagyu ribeye special and blue crab cakes were all perfectly prepared. The calamari is about the best I've had anywhere. Lobster mac & cheese is the best. Great raspberry sorbet for dessert. Irish coffee was well done.

Look forward to going back soon. Great experience!

The steak was quite good, but everything else was substantially below par. The “Alaskan king crab leg” add-on was actually a hammered (as in way overcooked) snow or other kind of small crab leg. The sides were mediocre, and the dessert tasted prepackaged and mass produced. And all for about $200 for two. We won’t go back.

The restaurant was quite nice. Presentation could have been better but the wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. I intended to tip 20% but i fell short b/c of bad math. As a suggestion with minors at the table get the crystal off if its not going to serve the adults. When my Marine comes back from Afghanistan his first steak is with you.

As always, we love the food, the service and this location. We love coming back here when we come back to CT....and are always welcomed back by Sheila, our favorite server. She remembers us and she is as happy to see us as we are to see her. When she was busy, we had two other servers to help so we never waited a minute for anything. Love the experience! See you next year!
