Service was great. The steak and the sea bass were the worst we’ve had yet. The steak had several chunks of chewy fat/muscles or whatever. The sea bass was so over cooked and tasted so fishy. Sea bass is supposed to be light, fluffy and buttery. I think the hot plate it comes out on severely over cooks the fish and makes it chewy. Please stop sending that hot plate. It’s pointless for fish and ruins the texture. You also have to wait ten minutes before you can even touch the food because it’s boiling hot. I had sea bass a Jeff Ruby’s last night and it was perfection. How it should be. Light and melt in your mouth. Not chewy hard and salty. Please let your chef know there need to be improvements in the sea bass.

Enjoyed the view and staff was very kind, efficient and welcoming but our order came out wrong but did correct it. The steak was great but I thought the bread pudding was a little dry and needed a bourbon sauce.

Celebrating my wife’s birthday, many dishes left on the table, took a long time to get dessert and check. No recognition of the birthday. Disappointed for a 650 dollar plus bill. Manager served wine but took no plates away with him. No acknowledgment of delayed service.

Everything was wonderful as usual and the only exception was it was an off night on steaks. My wife’s was overdone on temp and mine was correct on temp but charred too much so ends were burnt.

A friend and I made reservations for 9pm on Wednesday night to eat dinner and the food was good but we both felt incredibly rushed and the service wasn’t great. I was told over the phone that if we weren’t there by 9 the elevator will stop coming up and we won’t have a way up which is kind of crazy if they allow people to make reservations up until 9. Anyhow we got there early just in case about 845 and just felt rushed from the time we sat down. I was told over the phone orders had be in by 930 and the bartender pretty much told us we had to order and it was only 9, we just wanted to enjoy a drink before we ordered. Not to mention we had to get up and asked to order more drinks it’s like after they rushed us into ordering they didn’t care to pay attention to us. Basically I just feel like for the money you pay to eat there the service wasn’t up to standards.

It was ok. We usually eat at local places and not chain restaurants. The steak was food and sweet potatoes. But everything being on separate plates was a bit mucb. There was an old lady coughing nonstop which was unnerving in a pandemic. Our waiter was so nice! Mayne ruths chris just isn't my style. I love all the new local places a lot more

We have been to several Ruth's Chris Steak House's and have always had a wonderful experience from start to finish. We were delighted when we arrived at this location over an hour before our reservation time and they were able to seat us within 5 minutes, even with the birthday confetti :) Our server, I believe his name was Braylon, was outstanding! We were celebrating our youngest son's 10th birthday in combination with our 13th wedding anniversary, and we could not have asked for a better experience. Truly memorable and we can't wait to come back again!

An excellent experience on the terrace during these challenging times.
There is no other venue in Louisville (that I'm aware of) that offers 'high end' steak and sides with that view.

We went to Ruth’s Chris for a family celebration. It had been some time since I had had dinner there. In the past, the food has been wonderful. Unfortunately, that was not our experience on this visit. The food is terribly expensive and the quality does not in any way match the price. The steaks were not good quality and not cooked well. The sides were mediocre at best. The only positive was that our server was knowledgeable and friendly.
