Very nice meal! The food was served fresh and hot. Our server was very polite but the only glitch is that after all the dishes were cleared we waited a long time to get our check and I am not sure she asked if we wanted dessert (which we didn’t as we were full). Otherwise all was perfect. Would dine here again.

Steaks were not cooked correctly. It took the waiter more than 10 min to check on us after delivering the food. They took the steak back and burned it - ruined. Wedge salad was missing ingredients. Waiter never took drink order for main course. Overall a poor dining experience.

The food was amazing. Our service was very good until the end of our main course. We had finished eating and our server was busy. It was about 10-15 minutes before anyone cleared our dishes. Our server offered dessert and we finished our meal on a high note with better service.
We were cold while there. Our table was extremely drafty. So drafty that even after server all attempts the candle in our celebratory dessert could not stay lit for even a few seconds. I expected better for Ruth Chris.

My steak was truly a disappointment. While cooked well and tender, the piece of meat was not a quality looking filet. My wife' Walleye filet was tasty but mushy. Overall, the price/ value for the dinner was not approrpraite. Ruth Chris has historically been one of our favorite Madison restaurants but we will not be back soon.

Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. They put flower petals on the table to acknowledge our anniversary and gave us a free dessert on the house, it was very cute. We both got the filet and lobster tail and both were cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back!

We came for my family member’s birthday and it was great! We got to the table and there were little cute decorations lying on the table. We had Young as our server, who was phenomenal and made our evening even better! Definitely will be returning next time!

Our first time here. It was very good. The noise level was a touch high (but it was a Friday night, that’s not their fault) and of course it’s an expensive place. That said, the service and food were top notch. Our server was friendly and fast but not overbearing or crowding. The cowboy ribeye was enormous and absolutely delicious with a large portion of crab ordered Oscar. Paired great with the Prisoner Saldo Zinfandel. The creme brûlée for dessert was the best we’ve had anywhere. Smallish portion but each bite is amazing. I would pass on the lobster bisque, it’s a bit too cream-heavy even for a bisque. Overall, I’d happily come here again, the steak upholds its reputation.

25 minutes to get a drink is unacceptable. Lots of excuses. Waitress poured water on table and was slow. Was placed next to a table with a crying infant even though many other tables were open. Ruined the whole experience. Lobster tail was smallest I’ve ever had. Filet tasted unfresh so I didn’t eat it after first bites. Won’t be back.

The service was great and the food was excellent.

The only thing that detracted from what was to be a quiet, romantic evening, was a table of six women. They were on their phones constantly, watching videos with the sound ON, and answering their phones when they rang, which was often. One woman was even FaceTiming while at the table, so we could hear both sides of the conversation.

A reminder for everyone: Put your phones away, enjoy the company you're with, and be considerate of others.

So we went in tonight for my husbands birthday dinner and from beginning to end the service and food was amazing! I put on our reservation that it was my husbands birthday and every person there very politely and calmly wished him a happy birthday. They even had small embellishments on the table for his birthday. All of the above were the perfect touch! Our waitress Jessica was amazing! Good suggestions, prompt with food, our glasses were never empty and we never had dirty plates or silverware on our table. The food…all I can say is that Ruth’s Chris steak is always phenomenal! Top notch all the way! (I’m sorry I don’t remember the other servers/helpers names but they were all incredible!)

Service was great, but with a big hype on sizzling steaks. Mine was overcooked and definitely not sizzling. The flavor wasn’t very good and it wasn’t tender with gristly bites. A pretty poor cut I think for $54.00. My creamed spinach was luke warm. The Caesar salad was one of the best I’ve had. I didn’t complain because I was already embarrassed by the prices knowing my mother was paying. I’ve eaten at my share of high end restaurants but these prices even beat Bozeman MT prices, which are quite high! Quite disappointing. Will not return for dinner, but did enjoy the happy hour with a friend on a earlier date.
