The appetizer (small seafood tower), salads and sides were terrific. Steaks varied. Ribeye was grand, t-bone fatty, both tenderloins great. Server at table and in bar area were professional, pleasant, efficient.

It was my wife's bday, the website said you get a free desert on your birthday, but we were never offered one. Also the steak was very mediocre at best.

Reservations for an Easter dinner. Ambience and Service were exceptional. My daughter & I ordered the Petite Filet w/shrimp and a side order of mashed potatoes. The presentation of the meal was lack luster, with the shrimp being scattered on the plate. My husband and son ordered different entrees.

Having eaten the same entrees for dinner and different items throughout our day we both fell ill over the next 10-12 hours. I called the restaurant to see if any other patrons had fallen ill. Spoke with Ashley regarding our dining experience and she was a bit defensive about their food quality and handling and told me it must have something I had consumed earlier in my day and it was not their problem.

The steak is the reason you go to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. All six of us had steak, and nearly all of us were pleased with that aspect of the meal. One person's ribeye was too fatty. Not well-marbeled, the way you want ribeye to be. It was well beyond that. The sides were uneven--loaded hashbrowns were very good, creamed spinach was good, and we got a corn/pepper dish we didn't order. It looked...odd. I often find the service here too cloying, and this night was a mixture of that with absence at times, to the point I wondered where our server had gone. The service is so heavily orchestrated at RCS that it feels like you're taking part in a performance more than having a natural meal. It's a little too formal for me, but you know what you're getting when you go here.

Too many “servers” for bread vs water vs server vs .... but all were polite, some difficult to hear or understand.

I would have given 5 stars for service, however our bar tender experience was the worse ever! We sat down and waited 5 minutes and still have not been acknowledged! 4 people sat down beside us and the bartender immediately placed napkins down and started chatting with the ladies and still yet acknowledged us! Rate his service and the manager who clearly was standing at the end of the bar staring at nothing! Sorry, Chris Ruth’s - you need to look at your upper management. Saturday night at 7:30 pm. The restaurant was not busy because of the bad weather. No excuse! Our meal was delivered by wonderful dining room staff! I’m from Chicago visiting my son who just moved to Madison. I’ve been to your restaurant chain before in Minnesota, never had any issues.

Always consistent preparation of the steaks here. They do enhance with salt and butter, and they tell you that, so be aware - I'd say on the verge of being a bit too salty. I'd like to see them have more affordable bottles of wine. Specialty cocktails selection was very good. Service has always been knowledgeable and friendly.

All the way in order to my steak medium rare but the time they put it on the sizzling platter and I cut into it it was medium to medium well. I wonder they should factor that in when you order your doneness

We were chagrined to have to wait for an 8 PM table until 8:30 despite a reservation. We were not offered an apology by the people at the reservation desk. Given that it was Christmas Eve and we had to wait, a drink, or an amuse bouche, or even an apology would have seemed appropriate for what turned out to an expensive (as expected) meal..

Overall a great meal. The food was delicious. Great entrees and sides. Several of us had the filet and lobster tails. My son had the Lamp Chops. All were very tasty. Couple disappointments- waitress brought the wrong cocktail to my daughter - she drank it bc it was sometime before our waitress returned. When I told our waitress about it she just said “oh did you enjoy it though”. No offer to make it right, my daughter ordered another drink - this time the correct one was delivered. Basically we paid for a cocktail we didnt order- I didn’t want to put a damper on our holiday meal so I didn’t say anything more. Our after dinner coffee drink said it was topped with whip cream and chocolate. The drink came with neither. I’m sure the bartenders were busy but we were disappointed again in our drinks. I just think if you’re going to pay a premium price for cocktails they should be what you ordered as noted on the menu.

For our table of six - one steak was sent back once since it wasn't done enough and another steak was sent back twice - once for overcooked and once for undercooked. The last time it came was overcooked again but ate it anyway. The waitress was great and we were seen by a manager twice regarding the steaks. Was unfortunate that it couldn't be done right.

Then upon leaving couldn't find one person's jacket (took 10 minutes) to find it even with guest having to go into coat room to assist in search for jacket which employee finally found.

Overall disappointed!
