The service was slow, despite our early dining time. The Caesar salad was poorly tossed with at least 50% of the salad having no dressing on it at all. The croutons were not fresh. My husband and I both ordered the 11 oz filet cooked medium. They were both improperly prepared, and were served "well done". The creamed spinach was room temperature when served. The au gratin potatoes were not their usual quality. We keep hearing that the quality of the food here has really deteriorated but wanted to give it a chance. We had been at the Ponte Vedra location a few weeks back and had a wonderful experience. Someone needs to look at the chef/kitchen. Lastly, if you're going to have a dress code (and we believe you should), you need to enforce it. A "biker" and his wife, in cut off jeans and wife beater t-shirt sat beside us.
Just as you would expect from one of Jacksonville’s finest restaurants. Fabulous river views, excellent service, and first rate food.
Always wanted to be treated like I was a millionaire. Each and every time I come to Ruth Chris I feel that way. Our server Matthew was outstanding he made sure to use our names and to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. Truly a great experience.
Server was aweful.
This is my second time visiting this restaurant since the 1st of the year. I was disappointed both times with service. My first visit was on a Saturday night and it seemed like the waiter in charge was trying to rush us out. In fact, we were out pretty quickly for this type of restaurant - 1 hour and 15 minutes.
This second visit was just the opposite. I think the wait staff was stretched and things moved very slowly.
The main reason for going to this restaurant, in my opinion, is the service. The food is good but the service over the past years is usually spectacular. In the past, I've never had to sit with an empty drink or wait for someone to offer more bread or clean the table when it was needed. This time, the team did not seem to have it together. Orders were mixed up (sides not served) and directions not followed (wrong dressing on salad).
I usually visit this restaurant 4-6 times per year. But after these two experiences, I am not anxious to go back.
Always enjoy this restaurant, great waterfront views and great food!
Thank You . Food was great. Great customer service and view was lovely.Thank You.
Was vey nice, was there for a birthday, so they competed the desert. Very nice waiter.
Great place to dine
Service and Food were excellent - We enjoyed the selections, our server was well versed in the fare. I highly recommend this Ruth's Chris. This is our 4th or 5th visit and it is much better than their restaurants in South Florida.
Service was not up to typical RC standards. Slow to bring drinks, refill coffee, etc
We were warmly greeted at the door and seated with a wonderful view of the city. Siyana's service was excellent, and her assistants kept our glasses filled and our table free of debris. From our first anniversary ten years ago to our eleventh this weekend, Ruth's Chris provides a beautiful place to celebrate!
We were celebrating my son's 30th birthday on March 4th. As always, everything was wonderful - including food, service and atmosphere! Ruth's Chris is our favorite place to dine for a special occasion. <3
I was celebrating my birthday which usually I don’t acknowledge my birthday but I did this time because it was with my mother. My mother is terminal and I don’t know how much time I have with her and she wanted to do something special the first place I thought of was Ruth Chris
Made wrong choice of steak. Ribeye too fatty and greasy.
Kevin and Joe were great! Always amazing service and meal!
Great Steak. Great service. Beautiful views. No better place for special occasions.
Ruth's Chris never disappoints. This has to be a 'go-to' for special occasions. It is in the higher end of the price spectrum for Jacksonville, but for something like a big wedding anniversary (like ours) or a college graduation, etc... this place is awesome!
Actually, for the two of us, the bill wasn't out of this world. We each had nice entries, sides and drinks and the total was in the $150 range, including gratuity. You could spend as much at some of the other 'Name' steak places in town, but we know that Ruth's Chris will always be excellent and well worth it.
The service is outstanding and you can't beat the view.
The only negative was the high price for valet parking, but I'm sure that is a hotel issue and not anything to do with the restaurant.
I thoroughly enjoyed our server, Derrick, and the view was lovely. Appetizer, salad, and dessert were outstanding. I have given the “food” only three stars because my steak was Medium, and possibly even closer to Medium Well. I ordered medium rare and could have gone rare. If your biggest claim to fame is steak at that price point, then I expect it to be darn close to perfect. My family reacts poorly to confrontation, so I chose to remain silent instead of mentioning it to the server. In Ruth’s Chris’ defense, my sister’s steak was cooked to a perfect rare, and was delicious.
Celebrating a late Valentines Day. Window seat with a nice river view. Saw the sun go down. The steaks were prepared as order and the flavor was excellent.
Our waitress Siyana was beyond outstanding as always!!! She makes dining out a pleasure.
Great spot for a date with my wife. Beautiful view inside and out. Right on the river, friendly and attentive staff and wonderfully prepared steak. Everything we expected and more!
Mother in law birthday
We dined with friends who are long time loyalists to Ruth's Chris. We all noticed that pricing has gone up significantly and that some menu items are changed (au gratin potatoes) or no longer available (au poivre sauce). It was okay but not as outstanding as usual. I'm not sure we will go back. For the money we paid and the food, I think we'll go to Orsay.
Had an Amazing dinner and the view of downtown Jacksonville on the river is beautiful! Thank you!
The food was great. At the bar section, I had the 24 oz T-bone, seasoned to perfection and as requested (medium well with just a little pink). The crab rice was awesome, will be requesting it every time! Our bartender Scott made awesome drinks with great suggestions, meal and drinks wise. The other waiters were very friendly and conversational. Will definitely be returning soon. Thanks Ruth Chris.
Amazing and delicious!
Always a memorable dinner experience. Prompt and courteous service mixed with great food. We love coming here. Thank you for another great evening.
Great meal as always. One of the best river views in Jacksonville. Stellar service.
Always a pleasant experience, one of my fav Ruth’s chris.
Enjoyed my first dinner occasion at Ruth Chris. From the front door to the the server customer service was exceptional. Food was excellent and filling. I quite enjoyed myself. I will be back again. Good place to go for date nights and special occasion such like Valentines Day.
I was really disappointed with the stuffed chicken most of the meal was left on my plate. Wife was not pleased either
Dining at Ruth’s Chris is always a gastronomic success
We had a wonderful evening. Our waiter, Rick, was very knowledgeable and quite pleasant. He took great care of us and we will be requesting him personally upon our return.
The only downside to an otherwise perfect evening occurred while we were waiting for our table at the bar. My husband was watching a basketball game on the television over the bar. A gentleman came in about 20 minutes after us and mentioned that he wanted to watch golf and the bartender changed the channel without asking anyone else sitting at the bar if they were watching the game. My husband pointed this out to the bartender about 10 minutes later and though he told the bartender it really was for “informational purposes”, I guess the bartender felt he should make it right and changed the channel back. Of course, now we observe some side eyes and whispering and while we understand the bartender trying to make it right, it just could have been avoided with a question up front.
Otherwise, our food was great and we were pleased, as always.
havent been to RC since thanksgiving 2016 - where we had a very poor meal and service - this time however RC was perfect - service, ambience and food were all fantastic!
Great dining experience everytime we visit. Great atmosphere and food is always good.
Awesome view and my server a waitress Siana was the best and then my steak well done marvelous firestar's in the view of the Riverwalk and Main Street Bridge was awesome the candlelight was lovely romantic I will advise anybody to go there the price is a little pricey but the food is worth it is $60 for 12 oz steak meal with four coarse meal salad dessert broccoli steak and cheese cake and ice cream
6 stone crabs $55 a little high, the noise level was a little loud..
We had A fabulous meal with great service-Jeff was awesome. And the crab claws were the best I’ve ever had
