There were rose petals and an anniversary card on our table when we arrived. Finished the evening with a custom “happy 11th anniversary” message in chocolate on our dessert plate. Definitely made us feel special!

The mushroom stuffing and sea bass undercooked. The GM literally placed the blame on the server- who was great(tipped him well). The bus girl asked me if I wanted a To go box while I was still chewing. Working in F&B and a patron of fine dining restaurants regularly, I have never experienced a GM throw his wait staff ‘under the bus’ as he did.

Service wasn’t as usual. Food was fine. Except the wedge, ordered w/o bacon it had bacon , sent it back. They brought the same piece of lettuce with the bacon taken off . They didn’t change the plate, there was bacon in it.

The ambiance was beautiful. We had a private booth for two. The service was excellent and the so were the cocktails, wine, food and dessert. My husband and I shared the Veal Osso Buco Ravioli to start. As my entree I had the bone-in New York strip and my husband had the bone-in fillet. Both our meals were outstanding! We ended our fabulous meal with a white chocolate bread pudding topped with raspberry Chambord cream sauce. Delicious! It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to going again.

I’ve never had an experience at a Ruth’s Chris like the one I had here. I understand that it was Christmas Day, but the reason we decided to dine at Ruth’s Chris is because we were on vacation and the experience (service, food, customer service) is usually very consistent. For starters, we had a reservation for 8:15 but we weren’t seated until 8:50. Our waiter was inattentive, we had to ask him to light our candle on our table, and when he finally came to light the candle, he broke it, grabbed a lit candle from the next table, and left the broken candle on the table next to me. My lobster bisque and caesar salad was brought out at the same time; both my bisque and my friend’s bisque was cold and had to be sent back. The flavor of the bisque and salad was not up to par, in fact, none of the courses were up to par, except the side of sweet potato casserole. I barely touched my entree because it was not good at all, I should have sent it back, but I was just so disappointed and over the entire experience that I even passed on dessert. None of the adults enjoyed their meals as was evident by barely being touched as well as not taking it to go. There wasn’t any care, concern, or an effort to make it right. Very disappointed in this Christmas dinner experience.

It was Christmas Day and we had a 6:30 pm reservation. We waited for 45 minutes to be seated. We were seated next to the wall at the very end of the large main dining room. The noise level was deafening. My husband and I could not hear each other across the table!

That being said ,the food was delicious and our server was helpful and pleasant. Would prefer not to return on an oversold holiday, but restaurant options are unfortunately limited.

Let's just say that Christmas Eve was not Ruth's Chris Steak House's finest hour. We booked our reservtion well in advance and were still sat in the overflow room instead of the main dining area. Our waiter was barely present, one of the steaks overcooked, cold potato and overall disappointing experience. The manager did the right thing by adjusting our bill but it was too late by then. The whole experience of being out for the holiday had been ruined. Also, if you are going to have an over flow room, the walk-ins should be seated there, not people who took the time to make a reservation. Also, I would argue that there were some shenanigans going on at the front desk. I got the distinct impression that some folks were being seated ahead of those who had reservations.

As usual the steaks were perfect and the rest of the food and drink were very good. You have to be ready to pay dearly for a party of 7 so that's why we do it only once a year.

The appetizer was cold when it arrived. The service was great. That large chairs are awful and led to an over all average experience. It was a celebration with my family and unfortunately it didn’t hit the mark.

My reservation was for 6pm. We arrived early and were asked to wait in the bar, even though there were many empty tables in the dining room. They came to seat us at 6:40, which I felt was too long. Food was excellent and service average. The dining room was extremely loud making me feel as if I had to shout to be heard.

I ordered my steak medium rare and it was cooked medium to medium well and the lobster tails were overcooked. I asked them to make another. It took about 20 minutes for the steak to come back out - well done! Our server Giuseppe was wonderful and very helpful. They did not bill for the entree but it was so disappointing that this steakhouse couldn’t make the food right.

My steak was not cooked properly, waiter took it back to the kitchen and informed management. One of the managers came over confirmed that the steak was not cooked to the correct temperature and stated they were fixing it. He never offered to buy anything for the inconvenience, like a round of drinks, a free dessert or a discount on the meal. I have been to many fine dining establishments and it happens occasionally where your meal is not perfect but the management offers something for the inconvenience. Ruth Chris needs to take some management lessons from Fleming’s or Capital Grille.

I have been to Ruth’s Chris many times but this was my first time at this location. We came for Thanksgiving which we have done at other locations the last few years. This location was by far the worst experience ever. The waiter was not attentive and forgot to bring drinks and silverware. When asked he blamed someone else. Food came out cold and Turkey dinner appeared to be sitting around for a while. One of my favorites has always been the creamed spinach. This location appeared to use frozen spinach and it was terrible. Told the server and he did nothing and didn’t seem to care (paid for something no one ate as it was terrible). French fries were ice cold. Lobster Bisque was poorly prepared and was heated for too long as the soup separated and was not smooth (tasted like the cream was curdled). I never do reviews but this was such a terrible experience I decided that I should this time. I would not recommend this location and will never come back here. All around terrible experience and not worth the big expense.

One of the best (if not the best) in the entire country. Everything from food, service ambience is 10/10. Every time I’m in the area, I always make the effort to come here. You can’t go wrong.
My only compliant is that the do not enforce a dress code.

I would have like to have sat in the Main Dining room. It had a few tables seated at 11:30 am. We passed by and were put in a banquet stile room with the blinds shut on a beautiful day. Very dark and not pretty. Food was good but for 250.00 with tip for 4 people one a child would have liked it to be a nicer room. When we left the main dining room was still empty. If they are worried that the wait staff would not be seated enough they should rotate them to be fair. Will not go back on the holiday again.

Dined twice in one week. The first time we had one steak that was ordered medium rare and it came out well. Second visit with one steak ordered medium rare it came out blue. Sides were warm at best too. Wanted it to be great but it fell short. For the cost it was a disappointment. One redeeming thing was that the servers were great. The kitchen needs help.
