Service was wonderful the entire night from our server named Karen. For appetizers we had shrimp cocktail and crab cakes and both were wonderful. We decided to share the porterhouse for two which was prepared perfectly with au gratin potatoes. Overall a great experience

Food and service excellent. Was not the best table in the place. Right by the kitchen. It was my friend’s first visit to Ruth Chris so I was a little embarrassed at the table as we had passed many other empty tables on our way to it

This is our go-to restaurant for celebrations. We got engaged here years ago, and returned for my husband’s birthday this week. It was a little risky dining here with a 3.5 year old, but everyone was very accommodating and we didn’t stand out. They even provided us with a high-chair and kids’ menu. Ah, how life has changed!

This is my go-to place when I want a perfect steak. I’ve never been disappointed. I wish my budget allowed me to eat more frequently at Ruth’s Chris’. Some day I might order something other than meat, but I can cook chicken at home.

Haven't been to Ruth's Chris in 20 years but have cycled through their main competition due to location and thought it time to revisit RC. My ceasar salad, ribeye steak, wine and crĂšme brulee were all outstanding. The blue cheese crusted roasted vegetables were disappointing, swimming in oil or butter, overly salty and skimpy blue cheese crust -- never ordered this dish before, won't order it again. The restaurant was very quiet though it filled up eventually. I dined alone but could faintly make-out conversations of neighboring tables so if I had a dinner companion we certainly could have conversed easily. Noisy dining rooms is a reason I won't go back to one of RC's competitors where I had to shout to converse with the person across the table. My waiter was also outstanding, probably the best I've had in decades. He as very helpful in explaining the options and selecting wine, friendly, charming but not obtrusive.

The food was excellent, and it was really fun to get special treatment for Paul’s birthday, including a customized menu wishing him a happy birthday! However, something seemed really “off.” The hostess who seated us seemed miserable, and so did our server. Is there a management problem?

We’ve dine here several times before, but this last visit, partynof 4 and 3 of us ordered filet mignon, but myself and my brother in law were served the tail part which was not tender compare to the center cut. It was a bit disappointing.

My wife and I shared a ribeye steak and it was good, but I wouldn't say that it was a lot better than something I would get at an average steakhouse. Salads were excellent. The fingerling potatoes with onions were not that impressive. The brussel sprouts were very good. Service was excellent, but overall I expected more from a place this pricey.

The food overall was good. It was our anniversary and I was looking forward to a Wow experience. Unfortunately the ribeye steak that my wife ordered was not a great ribeye. Fatty, chewy....gristly....we took home 80% of the steak.
We did not complain and we do not write yelp reviews either.
I was hoping to have a great dinner with my wife, she was very disappointed. We spent $180.00.... we saved for a few months to enjoy the experience of Ruth Chris......
My meal was excellent......

The place was amazing. Food was great, our server Michael was awesome and the ambience was really nice. BUT I had to give a low overall because there was a major mishap in the bar area. My partner was walking towards the rest and slipped on the tiled flooring because there was a puddle of water on the floor. Not sure where it came from but it was there and the flooring that’s in the bar makes it very difficult to see. Neither the bartender or hostess helped her get up. It was very upsetting to hear that but we decided to not make a big deal out of it because we did want it to ruin our night, but she hurt her knee and leg in the fall. Really all I can say is be careful if you walk in the bar area or to the restroom because you can’t tell if the floor is wet and you don’t want to have a fall like my partner did.

The consistency in quality is why I continue to return, but the service this go around was below par. I was with a big group from work and asked to split checks and got push back from the waiter and some BS story about how the computer doesn’t let them split checks.
I also had to ask for another drink as my glass sat empty after a couple of times when the waiter seemed too busy.
Other than that, I love the food, I love the place and will definitely return, but I will make sure not to have the same waiter.
Everyone has a bad day, so I won’t hold this against my favorite restaurant.

We always have made Ruth Chris our destination for special occasions and unfortunately this last visit was our worst ever. Two of our steaks were sent back to the kitchen due to undercooked, the sweet potato casserole was so dry and lacked the usual toppings that make it so sweet and delicious, the waiter was slow to refill drinks and my son has a severe egg allergy and asked the waiter to check the recipe for egg. He never came back with an answer. Very disappointing
