My wife chose Ruth Chris for her B-Day celebration and we were both very pleased with our experience. We were fortunate enough to have Nathan as our waiter and he and his team were very attentive.
The food was great and the B-Day was acknowledged with a complimentary dessert.

We had eaten at Ruth Chris years ago and decided that we would splurge for an Anniversay dinner since our last meal here was Awesome. What a disappointment. Greeted by overdone cold bread on the table. Filet was also charred and not very tender, asparagus was tough and the Au gratin Potatoes that I had been dreaming of were completely different. Could have come out if a ready made bag. Wine was good. Server was attentive, bus boy was a hoot! If not for them, the entire experience would have been a wash. Totally not what you expect for a $200 meal. Was so disappointed in the difference from our last visit. Won’t be back. Too much money for sub standard food.

Very slow service, but we realize there may be a shortage in staff. The entire experience was just every different than any other one we have had here, which stinks because we save this for special occasions and spent $300 . Steaks were also undercooked but we didn’t send back for fear it would take even longer to get the food back.

Great restaurant. The food is always delicious. 3 in our party had filet mignon-outstanding. I am not a steak person so I get the stuffed chicken. Super delicious. Everyone on the staff is friendly and courteous. We have been to lots of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouses. Excluding the one in Manhattan NY, all have been very much worth the visit. Amali our server was outstanding.

Normally yes, last nite was bad. Steak not cooked correctly. Service was not good. Not servers fault, too many tables. Asparagus dry and bland,_ had to send my steak back ordered med rare, received well done. My sides we on my plate when steak went back, brought back steak with no sides, had to ask for it. Twice asked for lime in our drinks, got lemons, gave up. Not at all up to Ruth Chris standards
Dissapointed to say the least

We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Celebrated my daughter's birthday and when I made the reservation I had to agree to the dress code as stated. I received a phone call from the restaurant the day before the reservation to confirm and the person on the phone reiterated the dress code and asked me if I understood. Upon arriving at the restaurant and while being shown to our table there were many instances of the dress code not being adhered to, which made me wonder why all of the production if you are not going to enforce your own policy. The food was good, but not the same as in years past. There was a new level of cheapness to the whole experience. The service was something more you would receive and a lower class restaurant, and not remotely fine dining. It is disappointing that was once a flagship restaurant in Louisville has succumbed to being another overpriced steak house.

First the positives: The food was very good and predictable. Server (Brian) has been there 18 years. We are in no hurry celebrating a wedding anniversary but at times service was a bit slower than I like. It wasn't Brian (who we left a $50 tip for) they were just short staffed like everyone. They did personalize a dessert for the special occasion which we appreciated. Tables still spread out due to Covid so you could have a conversation except for the elderly lady next to us celebrating a birthday and who had her phone in her purse on ring LOUD. On top of that every time she answered it she put the conversation on speaker mode!!!

Now for the not so positive: The ENTIRE restaurant needs updating. Suspect this may be more of a function of the Kaden Tower building owner than Ruth's Chris. Carpet old/dirty, paint, walls, drapes, bathrooms and especially the outside area decaying and dirty. Even one of the neon lighted letters of the name was out. Too many places in Louisville for a $270 bill for 2 with 1 drink and no appetizers to tolerate the conditions/appearance of the restaurant. My suggestion would be for the restaurant to move to a MUCH nicer east end suburban location when their lease is up. Look no further than the new Malone's in the Paddock Shops for what's needed and what the competition is doing....

The steaks are outstanding melt in your mouth, cooked to perfection. Our sides where little cold when they got to us, but it was corrected immediately after bringing it to the waiters attention. All and all this is one of my favorite restaurants.
