We reserved at Ruth's Chris for my son's 18th birthday as he has visited the restaurant multiple times with his girlfriend and her grandparents. He always has had a great experience and loves the food, so it made sense to want to take him here for his special day. I had informed the restaurant in advance (through Open Table) that it was his birthday, so they had placed mardi gras beads on the table. The waiter was very prompt and friendly, and we put in our orders within 10 minutes of being seated. We only order dinners, no appetizers or anything special. The dining room began to fill in steadily after that, and after 45 minutes or so, my son noticed that the tables who were seated after us already had their meals. My daughter noticed the same and suggested that we attempt to find our waiter to determine what was taking our meals so long. We found the waiter after 5 minutes, and he apologized and said dinner would be out in "two minutes" and he apologized for the wait. Ten minutes later, our food arrived. The meal was very good, as to be expected, but my son, who rarely gets upset about anything, was very disappointed as he expected much better service and did not feel that this was being treated as a special occasion. My son also said that normally the manager would go from table to table checking in on the diners, and this did not occur. I spoke with the manager who listened and asked what he could do to rectify the situation, and I suggested that he come say happy birthday to my son as he would recognize him from past visits. The manager apologized for the wait and sent dessert for the table, a kind gesture although the desserts were not that good, to be honest. As far as my son is concerned, the experience put a bad taste in his mouth (pun intended) and would make him reconsider future visits, for himself, us, his girlfriend and her grandparents. The manager should have offered to at least comp my son's meal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, our servers were terrific! (Thanks Trish & Sheila)

We had drinks, apps, salads, dinner and dessert and every course was great. Food was delivered quickly and hot, I thought they were very efficient (food runners, water was always filled, crumbs removed etc)

Drink menu was awesome! They have a lot of hand crafted beverages, mojitos & martini's were what really caught my eye!

Highly recommended, works for any occasion special evening, date night or something celebratory!

Birthday dinner for my wife. Bad weather on a Wednesday contributed to a light crowd, which was nice and quiet for us. Food and service were great. We have been here many times and the food has been consistently excellent without exception. U

RC is one of our favorite “go to’s,” however NYEve 2017 was subpar. Timing was off, waited a while for water (and in between courses), wrong appetizer, main entree took unusually long (sounded like they forgot to put it in). Despite that, the food is always consistent and it was that evening. We left a great tip, anyway. Hey, everyone has a bad night every now and then. Here’s to 2018!

 (Seattle)·Dined on December 28, 2017

Great experience overall except the maître d' could use a course at a finishing school as he was pretentious and snooty. Service and food were excellent.

We were a party of seven, and I was taking my eighty year old parents out to dinner. It was 7 degrees Fahrenheit that night and upon arriving at 4:50pm for a 5:00pm reservation, the maître d' decided we should wait in the freezing lobby for 10 minutes in an otherwise completely empty restaurant.

Other than that, the service was excellent, the entrees' were well prepared as you would come to expect. Entrees ranged between filets, ribeyes and salomon. The appetizers were excellent as was the king crab. With tip, soup to nuts you should expect to pay $100 per person. I brought two bottles if wine and the charged a $20 corking fee which is pretty standard and just fine with me given the wine wasn't on the list and certainly on the high end of any wine list.

Christmas Eve dinner was a disappointment. We all ate here in 2016 & food & service was superb but not so this year. Four of 5 steaks were not cooked properly & had to be sent back and side dishes were not hot. For this expensive of a restaurant, I expect food to be superb. Our servers who were very friendly didn’t really seem to care about quality of our entrees.
We won’t be back anytime soon.

We were seated at a table two feet from the exit door and were freezing all night.
On the drive home, my son and daughter both had terrible stomach aches and we thought it was due to a dessert, since they were the only two of our party of 8 that had it. I would go again, but would request to sit somewhere warmer.

Wait for table was over 20 minutes with a reservation and service was extremely sluggish due to large parties in the restaurant. Not faulting staff they did the best they could, management could have been a little more attentive and should be staffing for these large events.

I took my wife to Ruth’s Chris on Monday Night for her Birthday and the entire experience was top-level. The atmosphere was amazing. The steaks were delicious and cooked to perfection! The waitstaff was friendly and attentive. Steve, the General Manager checked on us twice to make sure our experience was above and beyond. That was our first time but, will not be our last!

We had fabulous service by several waiters/attendants. We received an extra side (sweet potato casserole) as the excellent waitress, Kasey C, was discussing with me. Every appetizer (we got 3) and every steak and side was superb! I've been here several times and always enjoyed the atmosphere and truly great service and food! It's a bit pricey but very good food.

Food was fantastic, service was really good, as was overall experience. However, I thought it was pretty pricey with 3 people, 2 drinks and 2 glasses of wine was $360...

Compared to what other restaurants charge these days, Ruth's is a great value for the money. While it isn't "cheap," it's less expensive than what other steakhouses charge and is always consistently great.
