Service was quick. Food was tasty. Manager stopped by to check on us. Wine was excellent. Only thing to suggest is to bring raspberry sorbet and chocolate ice cream. Need a change in dessert options.

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the hostess until the moment we left, we had a wonderful experience. The ambience was very nice. Sophie, the servers assistant was cordial and never let our water glasses get empty. Our waitress Brittany was delightful, engaging, and just made our entire meal that much more enjoyable .

Yeah it’s expensive... but what gives. Best steak I’ve had in my life. Quality service. Complimentary valet. Don’t look at those 3 stars or below, they’re not worth your time. What is worth your time is a trip to Ruth’s Chris for the evening.

We were hoping for a very special evening for our 22 wedding anniversary but service was poor and the manager kept bumping into my chair to get into the wine rack without at least saying excuse me. Happened several times throughout dinner. The steaks were good and so was dessert. The crab stack was just ok. The cocktails were good but we were done with our appetizer before we were given our first drink. Waiter apologized stating it was happy hour. Considering we spent over $200 for 2 people and it was our anniversary I was hoping for better all around service. Won’t recommend or go again. I would suggest Flemings or more upscale Normans for an anniversary dinner. We hadn’t been to Ruth Christ’s in a long time and was giving it a second chance.

Been to many steakhouses, but this was our first to a Ruth's Chris. It definitely will not be our last. The table, ambiance, and service were great. My wife does not eat red meat, but found herself having to make a difficult decision between the seafood dishes offered. She ate everything on her plate, which is something for her. I had the bone-in filet. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare and the searing hot plate that it was served on kept the meat warm until the very last bite. Our server was always at the table when needed and very knowledgeable. The room did start to get a little loud as the evening went along because of some larger tables. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

I had forgotten just how high priced everything is at this restaurant. $10.50 for a baked potato - give me a break. We had a $100.00 gift card and it just barely covered the basics! Our servers were very polite and professional - when they showed up. I was told the main dining room was pre sold out but knowing that more staff should have been called in. If i win the lottery we may be back.

I’m a regular and the service was just awful (specifically our sever, not anyone else).... typically it’s on point... but it was super bad. He couldn’t remember anything, we were celebrating and it was just a mess. Also my steak came out way under cooked ... it was cold rare and supposed to be medium. Then it came back burnt to a crisp (well done) and awful and I still paid for it, sides we cold... always needing a cocktail bc he wasn’t checking on us... sorry to complain.. this is my favorite place to come and I was celebrating a huge career success that night and it was disappointing-

The service was excellent as was the food. I think however, the food is not worth the price. I should not have to go out to dinner for two and spend north of $150.00 for a good meal and a drink. Obviously, I new it would be expensive when we went in but nevertheless.

Usually go to Ruth’s Chris for a special occasion or to celebrate something, this was a belated valentines dinner. We requested a booth in our reservation and called earlier in the afternoon to confirm, they said it was no problem and we are all set. upon arriving there was no booths and we would have to wait, how long was unknown. We instead choose to have one of those tables with the big red lounge type chairs which was a big mistake. not only are they huge and difficult to talk to one another from but they are extremely hard to move in and out of. not a good choice if you like to be close and have a good conversation around the table, it’s like trying to eat dinner out of a lazy boy chair.

The service also really lacked, it took initially about 15 minutes just to get water and another few minutes for someone to take a drink order. We asked for bread which again took a long time and was basically served with the appetizer, that’s how long it took. the table next to us was seated about 10 minutes after us and almost immediately the assistant was there with water and drinks and the server. Really felt neglected and certainly not to Ruth Chris standards and what we have come to expect from the service.

Overall this was probably the poorest experience we have had from Ruth’s Chris. Does Ruth Chris maybe look down on reservations from Open Table? usually we reserve direct and never had a problem until this visit. We will maybe try Charley’s again next time instead.

Food was fantastic; unfortunately the service was truly horrific. We were there for 25 minutes before receiving our bar drinks, two hours + in total. I can prepare a fine steak at home, the reality is I come to a restaurant like this primarily for the service - they absolutely did not deliver.

On a positive note the valet drivers were incredibly nice and efficient.

Cosmo for my wife tasted sour like a margarita, send it back and took 45 minutes to get another. Service very slow. Food was very good as usual. The sweet potato casserole was not as good as normally. Bill for four adults and two kids was of $500 with tip. Should have better service for these prices.

Food was very good, as usual. Service was good until a very demanding table sat next to us. After that (not the fault of the wait staff), service really fell off as they were constantly be harassed by this table of people who are never going to be happy with anything. Sad, as the rest of the evening was very nice.

Not good experience from the 2nd we walked in. Hostess was rude, claimed I didn't have a reservation. I kept tell her I did. Finally someone else found it. We dressed up, after all it's fine dining on valentines days. And people where wearing baseball caps, scrubbing pants and shirts. Was sad. Had to send my steak back, mac and cheese was disappointing. They gave a coupon to come back. We left it on the table. We won't be back. Should have cooked at home.

For the first time we had poor service but it was not the servers fault. We waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table. I was told they are understaffed at the earlier hour. I am still paying the same high price no matter what time I eat. Food was fabulous as always
