    Service started out amazing, but toward the end we felt forgotten. We were going to have dessert and glass of wine but the server never came back so we just paid and left. This is not normal for this restaurant. We eat there often and typically have amazing service.

    Great meal as always. Steak always at the top of the agenda when coming to Ruth's Chris. Everyone's steak was cooked to perfection and served very hot. Appetizers of calamari, shrimp and stuffed mushrooms were outstanding. Service was excellent and timely. Always recommend this place when in Knoxville and looking for protein in the form of beef.

    Everything was on point as usual. We had one steak temperature that was quickly addressed and the evening was a success. Our party of 6 was a handful (21st birthday) so the cocktails were flowing and we never went dry. The service was perfect.

    We absolutely love Ruth Chris and visit often, but this was not a great experience. Not sure if our waiter was overwhelmed and short handed, but service was NOT typical. Also disappointed to see the manager standing by the bar and not in the dining room.

    We had a reservation for 7:30 as did the other 15-20 people standing in the foyer. No one was being seated while there were 3 people at the hostess stand. Very slow to seat the parties. Certainly not up to the standard of service that we are used to at Ruth Chris. Our waitress did not know anything about the wine list and furthermore there were no vintages listed on the wine menu.

    Waiter was slovenly, not really talkative or friendly and the worst we have had at this restaurant. He did not represent Ruth’s Chris with the professional service the cost of the meal warranted.

    Celebrated my birthday (with my wife) on this evening. My OpenTable reservation request was honored, as I had requested a table overlooking the river. The table was also decorated with "Happy Birthday" confetti on the tablecloth. Thank you for that. For a Monday night, it seemed that most of the employees were in a bad mood. Our server did not explain anything about the menu, specials, wine list, etc. He was just ready to take our order and seemed to be in a hurry to get us in and out. We already had plans to stay awhile. We ordered drinks from the bar and it didn't take long for them to arrive. Great drinks. The server later passed by our table, and without stopping, whisked away our bread with half a loaf left. I had to motion him back over to bring us more. We ordered the Crab Cakes for an appetizer. Very good. Once we were finished with those, he was ready to take our order. We both ordered from "Ruth's Classics"... she had Filet and Shrimp... I had Filet and Lobster. After our salad and soup, he brought the food. Again, very good. But, unlike other times there, we were not warned of the hot plate... but we knew. A server at another table removed the lobster from the tail for his guest. Ours did not... just sat it before me and walked off. When it came time for desert (the birthday desert was supposed to be complimentary), he said he would "upgrade" one of our standard deserts to the premium desert and only send one home with us (as we had asked for it to go). I told him NO. We paid for two deserts and to fix two deserts to go. He said he wasn't allowed, but would do it anyway. We thanked him. But, we were charged a $5 upgrade for the "birthday desert". WOW... $217 bill and no free desert. Pitiful. Upon leaving, the hostess didn't even say thanks or to have a good night. As a matter of fact, nobody acknowledged the birthday. For an upscale restaurant, treatment should be better. But, the food was delicious. Bar only next time!

    Took a long time to get food. Server was great but so rushed u felt bad to ask for anything . Long time between water then bread then wedge and then appetizer crab cakes and a really long time to get main dish. Our potatoe was not fresh and was not very warm at all. It was very noisy . We were celebrating our anniversary snd when I reserved table I requested a nice view. We got out at wall beside kitchen and there were happy birthday confetti on our table. Not sure scheduling on line reservations get read entirely .
