I know Ruth's Chris are known their steaks, but on this occasion I had the King Salmon and Shrimp. It was delicious, highly recommend.

Took my wife for Mother’s Day. It was our first time eating at Ruth Chris at such an early hour (1:00p) and was uncertain knowing they didn’t have a brunch menu. Service was great as usual and there was no difference from the evening setting.

I ordered the Classic which comes with a 6 oz filet and three shrimp. I ungraded to a ribeye which cost $22 more. The ribeye, which was supposed to be 16 oz, was smaller than the 6 oz ribeye. Then they charged me $5 for a crumble of bacon on my baked potato. Then charged me full price for creme brûlée as n up charge to the cheesecake which comes with the Classic. This has always been my favorite restaurant in Louisville but this meal was a total ripoff.

We were a bit disappointed in the atmosphere and service at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. While the food was delicious, there are other restaurants at this price point that have similar quality dining, but have the added benefit of impeccable service and updated decor. At two different points, we went 30 to 45 minutes without hearing from any wait staff. We also dine at fine dining establishments that are beautifully decorated, but this felt like a restaurant with decor at a much lower price point. We took my husband's parents for their anniversary because they recognized the name and were excited about being treated to a "fancy" meal. However, we feel like a $500 dinner should have been a much nicer dining experience overall.

I have never been so disappointed in my dining choice. Prior to my reservation I was reminded of the dress code policy BUT I saw two people in shorts, tennis shoes and t shirts.. Steaks were ordered medium and came out well-well done (actual carbon on the ends). What a waste of money, 19 anniversaries here, never again!

From the moment we arrive the maître d’ greeted us with a smile and took us to our table. Our waiters were very attentive without being bothersome. Our food was amazing and it did get a little pricey but we ordered some of the more expensive items on the menu. Overall we had a magical evening for our 10 year anniversary.

I have been to Ruth’s Chris numerous times but this time my husband’s 11oz filet was awful. One half was fine but the other half was undercooked and full of fat. He pointed it out to the waitress after she asked about the leftover part and nothing was said. He doesn’t complain and since it was my birthday I decided to let it go. We paid the bill and left. Won’t be back.

The food was delicious and such a spectacular view from the rooftop but our food server Christopher made our evening complete. We were celebrating my husband‘s birthday. Christopher went out of his way to make us feel special and make sure that everything was just perfect. He was attentive and his charismatic personality really set the tone for an amazing evening together. We will definitely come back and see him!!

Restaurant really out dated.
Waiter never explained the food or specials.
Steak and crab were ok.
Mashed potatoes were terrible. I told him and he offered to bring something else 20 minutes after I was done dining.

We were seated and got the bread and had to ask for water. Our table was Wobbley, my husband finally put a spoon under it to help level. I asked if they had sweet tea, server said yes and brought me unsweet tea and a cup on simple syrup to sweeten myself. I wanted sweet tea already made to be sweet. If the server would have said no we have unsweet tea and bring you simple syrup I would have ordered a coke. I ordered my filet well done and it was very pink on the inside. My son ordered his medium well and it was bleeding and he had to cut around the raw part. Server never asked if our steaks were cooked to our liking. We were sitting directly under a ceiling vent and my kids asked if they could go wait in the car after they ate because they were freezing. We also had to ask for salt and pepper and A1. The restaurant seems very out dated and old. For the price you pay, I was expecting luxury. We will go to Jeff Ruby’s next time for sure

It was my nieces sweet 16 dinner and we had two separate waiters/waitress one had the majority he was AWESOME! And then we had one that had 3 of us .the waitesss didn’t get 3 of our orders out until the others in our party was half way through dinner. And my lamb chop was rare when I asked for well done . I wasn’t happy. I’ve never experienced this there befor. But the manager took care of it the best he could and I appreciated that a lot..

Ruth’s Chris has always meets expectations. 2 Steaks were unevenly cooked. The replacements were under cooked. Waiter did what he could to make things right, but the manager seemed like he could have cared less. It was a big disappointment.

Service was not at all what I
Would call service. We had to constantly flag down our server and had to wait an extremely long time for anything. My filet had some fat in it as well; but she never stopped by to ask how our meal was after bringing it🤷‍♀️
