Rib steak was very good, but NY steak was more tough than it should be. The dessert hot fudge sundae was soupy and too sweet.

Service was very poor. No one checked on us until the meal was delivered by someone other than our server and we were in need of a beverage with our meal. The $57 filet was over cooked (asked for medium rare and it was done well done and thus very dry) but decided not to ruin the evening by sending it back. However at the end of the meal the server asked how our meal was. When I did finally mention that the steak was over cooked the server just looked at me and walked away. No I am sorry, what can we do to make it up for you. Just walked away and brought us the check. Will not return!

As usual Ruth Chris steakhouse held to their reputation. We took friends who had never eaten there and they loved it. They raved about how tender their steaks were. We benefited off the special early bird dinner special.

Everything was excellent! The food came out before my salad was served, so they took back the dinner and waited for me to finish my salad. Noah our waiter was excellent!! Very friendly and attentive!! To top it off, we had Mud pie which was over the top delicious! Great food, great crab cakes and steaks!!! I would highly recommend!!!

25th Anniversary Dinner 2017. One steak came out totally incorrect, a petite well done filet instead of a med rare full size filet. This was quickly corrected with an apology. The other two, both ribeyes, were both closer to medium rare when they were supposed to be a medium and a medium well. Even with the steaks not being as requested, they were still excellent , tender and flavorful.

Great flavor with the Ribeye steaks. noise level was very good making conversation very easy. The service was impeccable, and a new steak was brought out when my wife's was slightly over-cooked. Pricey, but very good!

Slow service, high prices, and marginal quality steak. Everything you might expect at mc Donald's, but not a $100 per plate restaurant. No second chances.

I was really looking forward to my first meal at Ruth Chris. And was very disappointed in my 58.00 ribeye. More than half of it was fat and the meat was undercooked and tuff I wish I had read reviews before I ordered it. It seems like I am not the only one that got a “fatty ribeye “. I don’t understand why they keep serving chunks of fat like this with all the bad reviews. It ruined our anniversary dinner.

We asked for the steak w/no butter due to a dairy allergy. It came to the table looking like it was boiled. I’m sure they were lazy and put it in the oven. Then we said, where is the Char? Oh, you didn’t say you wanted it charted, said the waiter! He took it away and in a flash it was returned w/a burnt crust. It tasted like the chemical they use in an acetylene torch, which they probably used to make the char. It was also well done. We won’t be returning.

We have experienced Ruth Chris at other locations and it lived up to its reputation. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and every server wished her happy birthday. The meal was very slow in coming and both steaks were over cooked. We ordered “pink-not red” and both were well done and dry, no pink. We are not in the habit of sending our meal back and it took such a long time for service, we ate and left disappointed. Expected more for the price paid.

This was the second time this week we dined at Ruth's Chris and had the same thing because it was so good the first time! We enjoyed the ahi sashimi appetizer followed by a petit filet and the creamed spinach. It was very tasty. The service was excellent and my husband enjoyed his Manhattan made with 4 Roses bourbon and Luxardo cherries. He was in heaven!
