how do you kill hamburger- order it med rare and it comes out over done-ask if they grill onions- no a slice comes on side- was answer hamburger was tasteless--
on plus side lobster bisque and fries good- there was no value in the hamburger, would have been happy to pay more for a juicy seasoned and flavorful burger

We had an excellent meal and our waiter Carter could not have been more attentive. Louise was also always available to help. Steaks were perfect and cooked as we Loire them. Great evening.

First time to this particular location and it lived up to the standard you would expect from Ruth's Chris.

Celebration of my husbands 60th Birthday with the family. We had an amazing evening as always with remarkable food. The service was incredible. Melanie was our extraordinary waitress and Dylan close by to keep our glasses filled and leftover boxes full. Thank You!! We are never disappointed at Ruth’s Chris.

Waitress could have been more sensitive not to disturb the conversation. She asked how we were doing several times, but always cutting our sentence.

Best place for a good steak of any choosing...the atmosphere is really nice and quiet...only thing I did not care for was where we were seated, in the middle of the, I'm gonna call it doorway...very uncomfortable as people bumped my chair getting through to their tables...not a good place for a table if your gonna have people walking right past you...other than that...the waiter was wonderful and recommended a wine for me...

Dined for Valentine's Day. Ordered Surf 'n Turf, lightly charred medium rare and my wife ordered a Filet, almost medium done . My wife received my steak and I received her steak. We expressed this mix up to the waiter and he insisted it was correct. The manager comes shortly after to check and we again express the mix up. He requests me to cut into my steak and it is almost medium well done. The manager takes my plate and brings back another steak that is closer to medium rare, but not charred as I requested. My expectations were already gone. This has been my experience with Ruth Chris. INCONSISTENT. At $50-$70 a steak, you should be the most consistent place around.

Always love this restaurant. Service is perfect. Only disappointment this time was the valet. Did not open my door after my husband's, who was driving. Not what I expect after an exquisite meal with matching service. I called the manager on the way home and she apologized but said valet is outsourced. Perhaps they should hire their own valet?!!

I wouldn't recommend this particular Ruth Chris restaurant. I was disappointed with it. The valet was terrible. The food was just ok and the service was less than satisfactory this time. Overall, the evening was less than dynamic.

Great steaks. Cooked just right. Service was prompt and attentive. Customer notes concerning recent experiences was appreciated as it gave server a heads-up on any previous problems/or preferences.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and will continue to do so! I have 3 steak house restaurants that I frequent and this is actually my favorite for a variety of reasons - mostly the staff, the cocktails and the fabulous food. This restaurant is beyond good - it is simply fabulous!

Food and service were right on! Appetizers included spicy shrimp and crispy lobster both in an excellent sauce. Lobster bisque was very good. Steaks were done as requested and definitely prime grade. Service was excellent and attentive. Will definitely return!
