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!

Expensive but worth every penny. I wasn’t expecting too much from a chain but the food was incredible.

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!

Great food. Great service- David was excellent. Restaurant was noisy. Recent remodel opened wall separating bar and restaurant. Staff at desk when entering were indifferent - no real greeting. More interested in their phones
Pretty much what we’ve come to expect from RC. Great food, great wait staff, subpar admin staff and mediocre facilities.

Melanie was amazing. She had a great personality and knows her job well. She knows how to properly pace a meal so that we felt neither rushed or in want. She knows to bring fresh wine glasses when opening a new bottle too. The food was prepared to perfection for each course and each part. It was served hot and it was served right. The assist staff was great to making sure water glasses were full and table was clear. The experience was a far cry from the horrible visit back in November and I trust it is what Ruth's Chris is and not just a show due to the fact we complained so hard last time

We typically go to Flemings, but I have to say Ruth’s Chris is so much better. It’s definitely going to be our new steak house. Great food and great service

Unfortunately my previous visits to Ruth Chris was by far better then my LAST one. I ordered your famous Ribeye but it did not taste as good as it used to and that was everyone’s opinion on my table. Side orders did not taste as good either. Not sure why you guys are using these small plates to put a 16 oz steak on. Our waitress was ok but everyone that helped her was very unfriendly and made us feel like they were doing us a favor putting the plates on our table. Not sure what’s going on but I don’t care since I’m not going back. Oh I almost forgot the bread pudding at the end was horrible.
