My family and I celebrated my mother’s birthday. Upon arrival, the hostess was extremely pleasant and proceeded to bring us to which in my opinion was the nicest table in the restaurant; also happened to be in a private room. Service by Zane was incredible! I truly cannot rave enough about him. He was pleasant, professional and humorous. He truly made my mother’s birthday memorably shine. The food was outstanding! The Osso Buco Ravioli being hands down delightful! Thank you all for an amazing evening!

From the wait staff, to the valet/doorman, everyone was professional and courteous. We were a table of 7 and 5 of us had never been to Ruth's Chris before. We were celebrating my son's 18th birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed our celebration dinner. We will definitely be back!!

From the moment we walked in the front door we were greeted by the friendly staff. We were seated promptly with our choice of a booth. Our waitress, Danielle, was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was quiet and intimate, which was exactly what we wanted for my husband's birthday. He was even presented with a complimentary birthday dessert! Such a great experience!

The food was mediocre for Ruth’s Chris. The steaks were not sizzling and the sides were just okay. The only thing outstanding about the meal was our waitress, Danielle. She was very attentive and helpful. Hope things improve

My husband and I go here 3-4 times a year for date night. The filet, creamed spinach, and au gratin potatoes are our favorites. We tried the crab cakes appetizer for the first time last night and we didn’t care for them, but the spicy shrimp appetizer was delicious. Even though the food is pricey, it’s worth it as an occasional date night.

The Ambience was lovely. You could hear yourself talk.. which is not the case in 95% of restaurants. The steak was cooked to perfection. Salad, sides ordinary. Wine price were beyond ridiculous. And service was over intrusive. To the point the server was listening to our entire conversation. So much for romantic evening. To interrupt you every 5 mins to ask if everything is wonderful is annoying. LET PEOPLE ENJOY THEIR MEAL! Really a greeting and water is nice. Order wine. And don't come back until you take the order. Then don't come back til you bring it. How about just walk by and see if I flag you down? Why does good service mean interrupting every 5 seconds?? Lastly- the entire menu is coated in butter. And the place smells of butter. It should smell like steak. Or fresh bread! Awesome steak.. will never go back. For the price- I really wanted to enjoy my dinner. But we were interrupted too many times to have a conversation. Like EVERY other restaurant. It's as if they think you came to talk to them. The experience didn't equal the price- for sure. Food was good, but not 4x the price good. Then.. add to that limited parking to force you to valet. Outright gouging. Some people can walk 10 yards. And some people don't want to turn over a 100k+ car or its contents to a 17yr old making minimum wage. Really annoying evening.
