As a 60 year old woman I do not find it flattering to be asked for my I’d from a server in their twenties

Our visit was a Valentine’s date for the husband and myself. Our server, Truman, the Caesar salad, and the bread pudding with whisky sauce were all amazing. The steak and sides were good but I’ve had better main course items at Ruth’s Chris in the past. It could have been that they were busy due to Valentine’s Day but it was a little off. Overall we were happy and will go back.

Menu has changed and you're told its based on sales and i highly doubt that. Quality of steaks has decreased over the past few months

My boyfriend passed a huge exam, we got a free dessert and fantastic service! My ONLY issue was that my steak had so much pepper it burned my tongue!

Our dinner was simply superb. The steaks were delicious and perfectly cooked, and our sever took wonderful care of us. If you’re splurging on dessert, I recommend the créme brulèe over the cheesecake.

We always love going to Ruth Chris. They are friendly and welcoming, which we all need theses days. We feel safe dining here and the crowd amount seems perfect.
Hey, let’s help them get the shoestring potatoes back on the menu, it’s our very favorite!.

Every time we’ve dined lately they’ve been out of something we order. Also the dress code is on the website and my husband has been asked to remove his hat, which we completely agree with but the last few times it seems that the dress code no longer applies. We love the food and service! This is one of our favorite spots!!

What happened ? The steak was ok - how can you mess that up? The sides were horrible ! The creamed spinach was cold - and had no nutmeg- was premade and reheated poorly . The au gratin potatoes were not thinly sliced - was cubes and was not fully cooked - it seemed like it was premade and was not like our other visits - bread pudding was dry and was frozen and reheated - no little pitcher of sauce like before - was a c or d meal at an a price - it sure what happened but the food quality has gone down hill. There are many other restaurants that have the same food quality but not as expensive. Not sure what the appeal is anymore if the food stays this bad .

Wonderful as always. Currently on a streamlined menu and wine list, which is understandable due to the lower volumes allowed in most locations currently. But what they do have is fabulous.

Had to send back my over cooked filet two times.. requested medium rare and on both occasions, the steak was almost well done. Food quality this time was not as good as each previous visit.

Great food - always enjoy our dinner here and especially at this location. Unfortunately we were seated near the kitchen and bathrooms. The ongoing traffic was somewhat distracting but overall very pleased!
