This is our favorite special occasions restaurant and has been for many years, however it seems every time we return our service experience declines more and more. The food keeps us coming back but maybe not any more. Hard to stomach such a large price tag, when getting a refill takes 25+ minutes. Our waiter had 3 tables, but continuously disappeared from the dinning room for 20+ minutes at a time, every time he was near we would have to call his attention to get any service. Dirty dishes sat at the table for over 30 minutes barely being removed before the meal was served, water was hardly refilled, couldn't get enough service to order bar drinks as desired, passing without collecting the check multiple times. Very disappointing service for what is expected when paying for fine dining.

The service is very nice. However, the steak is just ok or on average. It is one of the saltiest steaks I ever have before. Both steak and lamb chop were covered with salt, so I bet it is their standard to cook all types of meat with that much of salt. We spent about 300 bucks for 3 adults.

Have been coming to Ruth’s for our wedding anniversary for at least 10 years. We have never had a problem with any of the staff! The food is out of this world good! The service is beyond reproach!

We are seniors and we save all of our change for a year and use that money to be able to go there!!
We had our 39th anniversary this year and hope to be there next year for our 40th!

Hot evening but we wanted more casual so we chose to sit on the patio which ended up being quite nice... a little breeze kept us cooler. I had the caprese & ahi tuna appetizer for my dinner & my husband had the ahi & sautéed mushrooms for his. Delicious!

We had a very good experience for our anniversary dinner. A few points I'll make for those considering a visit. The restaurant is on the 16th floor and has a balcony on which you can walk around the building for a great 360-degree view of the city but the view sitting at your table is very limited.

Our steaks (filet and bone-in ribeye) were excellent, among the best I've had in some time. Sides were quite good. For us, the Value was only fair. The prices are high; however, I uprated Value because there is a special available for a starter, steak, side, and dessert that would satisfy many people at a very reasonable price. You are limited to a few choices for starter, side, and dessert but most of the steaks are available, and they are the stars of the menu anyway.

Service was attentive without being obtrusive. We did not feel rushed nor neglected in any way. In the end, we were happy with the food, service, and experience, and would have gone again.

Over all it was great. Our food was great but we where rushed, still eating apps when the salad arrived then still eating salads when the steaks arrived. Waiters offered to take them back and keep them warm but being that the steaks where supposed to rare/medium rare that would not have worked. Very nice atmosphere, expensive restaurant wish they wouldn’t try to hustle people through...

I had reservations for 7:15 pm and my friends and I had to wait until about 7:50 PM to be seated. This is after going to the
Hostess station 2 times to ask when our would be ready . Both times were told in few minutes. All we were told was we are so sorry.

This was a date for our 10th anniversary. Alex was our server and he was just a wonderful person. The service he provided was outstanding. As usual, the food was excellent and prepared to the exacting standards of a restaurant of this caliber. We couldn’t have had a better experience. Ruth’s Chris always delivers the perfect night out.

This was the most perfect place to go for my 65th birthday with my husband. The hostess servers were all friendly. The ambiance of this place is what I like & love. The food was so delicious appealing just right portion’s. I’m ready to go back. My 42nd wedding anniversary is September 3rd so I’ll be making my reservations. They had a signed birthday card on our table for me plus little decorations scattered. Plus took our picture and gave it to us. This place right here deserves at A+. My desert was a blueberry cheesecake my favorite. With Happy Birthday in chocolate design. I had the sirloin steak with shrimp & Baked Potato with broccoli on top. My husband had salmon with spinach & Steamed Broccoli. Plus Salad. The bread was so tasty & hot. The ginger ale was very refreshing.

Went to Ruth Chris’s steak house with my brother who was in town. His meal was good. I order my steak medium and it came out more than rare. The service was awful. We’re in our twenties and we’re ignored for older guests. I had to pour my own wine(from the bottle I bought) clear up our appetizer plates to make room for meal, ask for water and the waiter didn’t come to check on our steaks until we were half walk threw( and it was too late to fix my steak). I’ve been to other Ruth Chris and this one just didn’t stand up. Very disappointing.

This is my husbands favorite place to get a steak. We went to celebrate Father's Day and and weren't disappointed. The food was excellent and so was the service. To top it off Ruth Chris was giving out $25.00 certificates for future visits. What a wonderful way to honor the men in our lives.

Second time getting the 11 ounce filet in the past couple months. Second time getting significant portion of fat/grisle. Got a microwave brownie as a consolation gift. Filets at longhorns are better. Wish Ruth’s Chris filets looked like pic they advertise with.

I enjoyed a wonderful birthday and I also met a wonderful couple that were seated next to my table. All and all I experienced one of the best birthdays I've had in a long time! Before exiting the restaurant I was greeted with a special surprise, a beautiful boisenberry cheesecake w/a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I want to add that as I was approaching the table to be seated the table was decorated for my special day and the signed card was a added bonus. I had a wonderful dining experience and I don't want to leave out David the Host/Waiter/Server who had 3 tables and approximately 12-15 people and didn't miss a beat in meeting at least my needs. He was friendly, timely, pleasant and always had a smile on his face. My only concern is that there are a lot of people that don't consume meat or dairy products for either health reasons or by choice. I could be wrong but the only plant based item I saw on the menu was a vegetable dish. I would like to see much more and a larger variety with more options. Thank you very much for my dining experience!

As always, a remarkable experience. Little touches throughout the evening. Our table was decorated with shiny foil happy birthday greetings, we were served a delicious happy birthday blueberry cheesecake desert, and the entire service staff was aware that it was my girlfriend’s special day. The filet lived up to its reputation as did the sides and drinks. Even Ruby’s struggles to keep the pace set by Ruth’s Chris. My favorite.
