Great experience to celebrate my 30th birthday. My wife and I enjoyed our meal, wine, and dessert. It was an extremely busy night at the restaurant and we had a mistake with our order. After politely bringing up the mistake, the manager and waiter quickly rectified the mistake! Service was first class! We will definitely be back!

The filet was so tender and cooked to perfection. The lobster mac and cheese was out of this world. Highly recommend and will certainly be going back.

We had a reservation for 7:45pm, however we were not seated until 30 minutes later which was disappointing to start. The restaurant was clearly busier than usual (from our experience), which in my opinion diminished the experience. We felt like the tables were too close together - so much so that a person seated at the table next to ours at one point reached out to stretch and hit someone in our party. We also experienced the loud clanging of plates being cleared immediately behind me which made it difficult to carry on a conversation. The server also seemed to be rushing us and when we asked about the specials, he quickly ran through them without any genuine interest - I guess we should know them already? We also ran into the recurring issue of having our meal come out before being able to finish our salads, although were promised this would not happen but it always does. The food was good, which made it an “ok” dining experience but definitely not one to be remembered.

Everything was amazing until the table behind us was extremely loud and cursing as if they were the only people in the dining room. Other than that everything was delicious.

My wife and I chose Ruth's Chris for our Silver Wedding Anniversary and they did not disappoint. Our server, Jon, was very helpful as my wife decided between multiple sides. The food was outstanding! The steak was flavorful, the sides Jon recommended were spot on, and the company was the best!

You just can't beat Ruth Chris for its filet minion! The flavor is incredible and can't be beat by any other steak house around. The service is outstanding too. A great place to go to be pampered.

We arrived and were seated right away, the helper for the main server came over and asked us about water.
We waited a few minutes for our server to arrive and she introduced herself and ask for our drink order and then left
It took several minutes to get our drink order and you were out of white Zinfandel-really on a Friday night going in to the weekend and you run out of wine?
We ordered dinner and after we finally received bread.
Our appetizers arrived and we began eating we were barely started on appetizers and my salad arrives WTF?, can the servers not see?
Our dinner arrived in pieces, one dinner then another then one more and then we had to ask for the fourth which they forgot along with the fact we had ordered lobster Mac and cheese, which never came after three requests and we finally had a manager come to our table just asking about our experience we told him about the Mac and cheese and told him to forget it and cancel we were finished eating.
We received no apology form our server, the manager no compensation NADA.
Very disappointed in your service.

Very nice restaurant with great food and service. One problem with these places though is that it's always too dark. Even for me 25 it's darker than comfortable. Sucks to take pictures together or of each other (date or with friends) BUT regardless the food was amazing and our server Natalia was very sweet and good to us.

We expected the wait staff to be more education on the menu. They had to return to the kitchen several times to get clarification from the chef. The pace of service may have been designed for a more relaxed feel but we felt it was slow. We had one waitress and she had a helper who was nothing more than a buss boy who couldn’t answer questions.
Food was remarkable!

The staff was very rude. We were made to wait even though reservations were made. On three different occasions the wait staff dropped the dishes. I’ve been to Ruth’s Chris Steak House many times and that was the worst experience I have ever had. Very disappointed and mad a very special night less enjoyable.

Me and my girlfriend had other plans for our anniversary at a different, similarly priced restaurant. Long story short we left that restaurant disappointed and came to Ruth's Chris instead. Before we even walked in we were treated with much better respect and service than the other place from the valet who opened the doors for us. From there the service continued to be great from the hostess to the waiter. We had a great experience and they turned a souring night into a good one.
