The normally flawless experience at the restaurant, especially for big days, was a bit off. The restaurant was extremely warm and after a while it felt a bit uncomfortable. Two steaks were overdone to the disappointment of our guests. Of course, the order was rectified but it took away from the timing and overall experience. That said, our waiter Nathan was a delight, management did check in, and all the food was delicious. It is just that dining at Ruth’s Chris is supposed to be nearly perfect and when it missed on two counts it left us a bit disappointed.

Outstanding all-around as usual. Service, drinks, and food are the best in Louisville. A bourbon-lover’s favorite bar is one that doesn’t measure the pour, which has always been Ruth’s Chris. Our server, David, took care of us like a pro. A great experience.

Food was very good and our server was excellent. The wine selection seemed limited. We will return but the little details are missing that would warrant 5 stars.

Server had way too many tables. There is zero enforcement of the dress code as there were several riffraff characters. Had to go to the bar for refills and previously requested condiments.

The one good thin was Christopher, he wasn’t our server but saw I was getting refills and pepper from the bar. He cornered me, apologized, and sent the manager over. The manager was very nice and apologetic, he took some drinks off to help make up but at the end of the day, we weren’t there to manage our budget, we were hoping for the experience. Hopefully better next time. We will certainly ask for Christopher or Garth if we return.

I have dined at Ruth's Chris many times before and at different locations. The quality of food has declined the last several times, I have visited. The price has certainly increased, with decreasing quality.

We ordered the seafood tower which was superb; calamari good but almost too chewy; garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were fairly bland and I ordered a medium rare filet but it came out medium/overcooked - it did have good flavor but not as good as a medium rare. Kinda disappointed for the cost and compared to previous experiences.

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!
