    We compared this to RARE in Madison and the experience for the cost, RARE was a better option. I would return to Ruth’s Chris, but for the comparative cost, I would choose RARE.

    The steaks and creamed spinach were excellent. The lobster bisque was a little drab, and some of the other side dishes were salt. Overall, ver pleasant, but not up to expectations for such an expensive restaurant.

    Excellent as always. The only fault (a small one) was that the wait staff had to be told there was a birthday at our table. It was our reason for being there, and it was on the Open Table reservation and confirmed by me twice.

    Soft lights, comfortable seating and a fireplace are you're starting welcome. Then comes a lovely wine/cocktail list, beautiful entrees and all the fixings you love, ...the crispest Cesar salad and creamed spinach. Our perfectly seasoned steaks were beautiful and cooked to our requested medium rare...warm and red on the inside with sizzling crust on a piping hot plate. The service was attentive and comfortable. We love this Madison steakhouse!

    We have been eating at this Ruth Chris for more than 20 years. This was the first time we ordered off of the restaurant week menu. When I tell you it was awful, I am not exaggerating. We kindly mentioned this to our waitress and she said “ it’s cause you ordered off the restaurant week menu. It’s still a prime cut, but from the ends.” I would not even take the “steak” home. It was full of gristle and tough. 3 of our steaks were this way. The garlic mashed potatoes were completely flavorless. And the flourless chocolate cake had a red layer on top, but there was absolutely no flavor of raspberry to it whatsoever . I understand we only spent $300 but for a terrible meal, that’s still a lot of money. So disappointed. We have made many memories here, but my husband’s birthday was ruined last night due to bad meal. Thank you for listening

    We felt isolated and was charged the amount of tip that the waiter wanted we didn’t have a choice of what we wanted to tip.waiter really didn’t care to be our waiter. Everyone that wasn’t colored got greeted by the manger. It was just a poor and hurtful first time experience. I don’t know if it was just this location or what.

    We've come to this restaurant a few times and both the food and service are excellent. Two guests had the prix fixe offering which is a good value and high quality. Wine by the glass could be improved, especially the reds. Other restaurants we frequent have BTG for Prisoner, Caymus, Duckhorn Cab, etc. Service was great. Not rushed, but attentive.

    Start with appearance of the establishment leads one to think of finer dinning. That was initial feeling but was quickly disappointed. Ambient noise was just below that of a value restaurant. The waitress forgot our appetizer and when said something, as main entree arrived. She offered to bring it than which defeats the idea of it being an appetizer so we declined. Next our side was not delivered with Main entree and it took us saying something to manager after we had brought the missing side up to waitress. So had to tell both the waitress and than manager about missing side. Even than the side did not arrive until we were over half done eating. The meal quality at best was on par with maybe a Applebees so not of high quality. Last item was when we asked for check they proceeded to begin clearing our table before we received check and while we’re still seated. That is beyond tacky for any restaurant. Would not recommend anyone eat here instead go to value restaurant like Applebees where the quality and atmosphere and price are inline with expectations. Not being negative about Applebees but it is a value restaurant which is my point. Wife even agrees when I made statement that felt like Applebees but priced like finer dinning.
