    Me and my fiancé came for our two year anniversary and this was my first time at the restaurant, and I would definitely go back. The service was great. They even put rose petals on our table before we sat down. The only thing that we would complain about is, the lighting was very bright in there for the type of restaurant that it is. We both ordered off the prefix menu and for the price and what we got, I would say that it was definitely good. The waitress even took our picture and give it to us and a card at the end with a gift card for the future for a free dessert. Overall very impressed.

    Used a gift card and had a great dining experience. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We had the calamari which was recommended by a server and did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked to order and the garlic mashed side dish was enough for 2.

    My wife and I have always loved Ruth's Chris and we have eaten at the Newington location a lot, so it pains me to be so critical. As soon as we walked in we noticed the new "decor", we both thought we had walked into the diner up the road. Gone were the dark steakhouse hues, replaced with diner and Tiffany blue and a brightness that seemed out of place. We were seated in the back and the service started great and we thought, ok we can get past the lack of ambiance, we're here for the food. We were wrong. The Barbecue Shrimp is one of our staples, but the last time we ordered it the sauce was different, thicker and creamier and not as spicy. Our waiter assured us that this time would be different, he was misinformed. The Chopped Salad and Creamed Spinach were great. The Porterhouse was disappointing, as soon as the waiter approached our table with it, that beautiful sizzle was missing. Our server even commented that it's not "sizzling like it should". The taste was there but even the quality didn't seem the same. The service, which started out great, began to slack and we both agreed that it was a disappointing night at RC. We love the place enough that we will go back and we pray that it will be better and they bring back the steakhouse feel.

    It was me and my wife's 1st year anniversary and I wanted to take her to a really nice restaurant. Several of my friends had mentioned Ruth Chris. We had a really great time. I booked our reservation on line and when we were greeted by the host she had a handful if rose pedals for our table which was really,really cool!!!!! My wife had the salmon and shrimp and a side of mushrooms and I had a nice piece of steak and a side dish of augratin potatoes. She had a merlot while I had a Carona w/ a lime. For dessert we had a creme brulee. The food was outstanding and so was the service. I highly recommend this restaurant.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👍

    Lobster bisque had no lobster, kids chicken tenders tried out over cooked, crab cakes dry no dipping sauce, creamed spinach runny no flavor looked like canned spinach, key lime pie barely a hint of lime covered in too much whipped crust over baked too brown. Ruth would be aghast. Have been a longtime fan but quality does not support the price .

    My thoughts are the RC is getting cheap with quality of food, less options, and their menu not in those nice leather binders anymore. Seems like they’re sacrificing quality and charging more.

    This is my gf and I 4th visit in 6 months. Let’s just say food was good! After that, not so good. Our server was poor. Very poor. Had to wait 15 minutes for a drink during dinner. Took away steak knives only to bring them back. Pepper shaker falls on ground in traffic area and bus boy continued using it. What a mess!!! Good food but service needs help.

    As always, a GREAT steak, and top-notch service, in a beautiful restaurant. But for a high-end restaurant, I was disappointed though in the side dishes. The baked potato looked and tasted like it had been cooked hours ago, with the "loaded" toppings minimal and old. I expected the tomato and fresh mozzarella salad to be like an Italian Caprese salad with slices of red ripe tomatoes, and slices of great fresh mozzarella, and pieces of basil. Instead, I received a plate with chopped up, pale tomatoes, small chunks of mozzarella, and no basil. Disappointing! I will return for all the primary reasons above - but for the money they charge, I hope they address the poorly executed side dishes soon.
