This was our second and last disappoint at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. No issue with spending $700 for a meal; however, when your steaks are ordered medium rare and they are served what could only be considered well done, imagine the char on a well done filet. When the server did pour our wine she literally reached across others at the table to fill my glass, not once but several times. Rather than move to be beside each diner to take their orders, she was stationary as she took our orders, and we had to pass our menus to her. Our comments during diner was it doesn't appear too busy; however, the wait staff was running around like chicken with their heads off, yet the service was sub par. We will stick with Flemings.

I love this restaurant, but my complaint was the coffee. It was awful. The taste wasn’t up to your standards. I did mention this to the waitress and she said she would take care of it. It didn’t improve. Just let it go because it wasn’t her fault. Don’t get me wrong, you could drink it,it just wasn’t good or hot. The rest of the meal was great!

As always, our dining experience at Ruth's Chris was great! In particular, our server Sabrina was the best! She was so professional, friendly and spot on with her timing of each and every course and suggestions on the menu. I would recommend her to our friends and who dine there with their children - we live in Nashville and not only do we have a Ruth's Chris but many other dining options as well. This trip was every bit as good or better as any of the experiences we have had in Nashville. Again, Sabrina is the absolute best and we hope to see her again soon!
Thank you for a wonderful evening in Knoxville!

We made reservations for Easter. Server was very attentive, but:
1. Salad fork still had food on it from last diner.
2. One 8 oz steak was as requested, but second, supposed to be medium, was bloody once you cut through the outer edge.
3. Chef would not add several mushroom to one steak without ordering the entire mushroom side dish. Very poor customer appreciation for the prices charged!
4. Total bill, including 20% tip, was $192.00. Very high for two people for what you received.
5. Assume that this location must derive most income from guests on business expense paid cards. Average person cannot afford these prices!!!

Took family after Lady Vols softball game. The server was very familiar with the Gluten-free menu and did a phenomenal job ensuring my wife and child were taken care of. My kids even got a bonus and got their picture made with a Lady Vol athlete outside the restaurant. Great experience, great food

The food and service is always good. I took my wife here for her birthday. It is expensive, but you will have great meal. They also have some price fix menus, which are good but selections are limited. I wish they would bring back the escargot appetizer and the broiled tomato side dish. Great place for a special occasion.

Filets were tough! Asparagus was cold and undercooked. Crab stuffed mushrooms were not very good.

Server kept trying to up sell. Annoying. Anniversary dessert was mediocre.

Overall a disappointing experience. Worst meal we have had there. Not sure we will return

Food good as always. Service not nearly as attentive as usual. We split a wedge salad. He brought the wedge and two empty plates then cut and plated by the table. That was awkward. Filet (m rare) was tiny bit on tough side.

Our son ordered the 11 oz. filet to be cooked medium well but when it was served it had only been cooked rare to medium rare. The waitress promptly took it back and apologized. When the filet was brought back, it was only cooked medium at best. We didn’t bother sending it back again but my son only ate around the edges. The waitress never checked back to inquire again after it was returned to us and we were not offered a discount on this portion of the meal. He only ate about 2 oz. of the steak so it was very obvious he was unsatisfied.

Steak was fabulous, tender and delicious. We ordered the shrimp cocktail and it was nice they include 4 large shrimp on a layer of fresh lettuces. (We could have skipped the salad course)
Other high end steak places only give you 3 shrimps.
We both had the filets and they were cooked to perfection.
Wait staff was attentive and made sure the courses came at the right time instead of all at once.
I am Gluten Free and they were able to accommodate easily.
They have a GF flourless chocolate cake that was devine! Worth taking home.
A real enjoyable evening.
A note worth mentioning. They serve the steaks on a plate sizzling with butter. (Very HOt). Next time I will ask to forgo the sizzling butter but if you don’t mind -the butter is lip smackin good!!

Valentine's Night, the place was packed, but I was surprised how long it took them to clean empty tables?! We waited 20 mins past our reservation time, but the cocktails at the bar were excellent, albeit pricey, and the bar staff very nice. The food was delicious and the wait/bus staff were equally attentive. I think they had placed more tables in their dining room than normal (otherwise it's too cramped!), but it was Valentine's, so I'm not surprised. Overall it was a good experience, but I have had much better for the same amount of money at Fleming's.
