    Food was so so. Salad was brought out with wrong dressing and one was the wring salad. Steak was undercooked a bit. So they reheated it and it came out charred. Sides were good. Dessert was good.

    Luke warm coffee (twice) and marginal cheesecake. Everything else was really good. Even for a premier steakhouse comparatively it was pricey.

    Food and service were both outstanding. The meal was paced really well and each entree was cooked exactly as we had ordered (medium rare was nice and pink in the middle). The vegetables were perfectly done (asparagus) which is sometimes not the case in other restaurants. Highly recommend if you are looking for a nice dinner.

    My favorite thing is the chopped salad. They changed it recently and it was absolutely awful. It was missing ingredients and the dressing was bitter. The steak was ok. The Brussels sprouts were so hard I could barely cut it was a steak knife. Very disappointed in my visit. My husband selected this for his birthday dinner. He was less than thrilled with his choice.

    Bar setup isn’t great. Bartender was doing best she could but the bar setup is horrible. Took a long time to make drinks. Food was amazing, service was ok. Server said she had a large party as well so that took her attention. It was long waits between seeing her.

    The guy in the reception made fun with my last name and showed my last name to other customers and tried to get them involved in his work with making fun of my last name. I felt really insulted by that . Not sure if it was lack of cultural awareness or it was something else . I come from different culture and I understand my last name maybe hard to pronounce but what he did with that and then made fun of it openly in front of other customers were really insulting.

    We were celebrating my daughter’s and my birthday. Ruth’s is always a great place for a celebration or just a nice date night out. Andrea, our server, was fantastic catering to our every need. Lee and Julie were there with a warm greeting. We had a fabulous time. Thank you all and thanks to Kevin for a very good cosmo.

    Celebrated daughters birthday. We had six people in our party and enjoyed four appetizers, two bottles of cheap wine ($35 each) and one expensive one ($180). Everyone had filet and it was cooked perfectly. I had shrimp on mine-also excellent. Sides were delicious and we had three desserts too. So for a three course meal with wine we were there about 3 hours (never rushed) and spent $1100 with tip. It’s pricey. However it’s excellent.

    Our server Young was excellent!!!! Seafood (shrimp and lobster tail) was - a bit over cooked and tasted a bit tough. Steak was cooked fine. Sides were good. Bread and butter was great. The food came out extremely hot. I like hot food but it was way too hot. We tried to wait a few minutes to eat but during the entire meal it was just so hot in temperature.

    Been here several times and will absolutely return. Very classy place, attentive wait staff, and the best steaks on the planet. Two salads, two ribeyes (one with blue cheese crust), and we split a side of au gratin potatoes. With two glasses of a medium grade Cabernet Sauvignon and a coffee, the bill was $230 ish. So, yeah, not an everyday stop. For a special occasion? Yup!

    Way overpriced. The sides were not as big as explained. You shouldn’t have to pay for salad and your choice of patato when you are paying that kind of prices.

    Had to send my martini back because too much vermouth and it came back the same. The waiter messed up my daughter’s order; Ribeye instead of Filet. Then asked if she wanted to keep it instead of the right steak. She sent it back and had to wait 15 min for a Filet. Manager asked how everything was and I told him we weren’t happy. He smiled and carried on. The waiter did give us some free mashed potatoes. I would’ve expected more
like my daughter’s comped or half comped since she had to watch the other five of us eat in front of her. Overall a bit of a disappointment because of service.

    Atmosphere very nice but dark. Service outstanding, staff attentive. Did very good filets cooked perfect and scalloped potatoes were yummy! The steak was a good price as were the potatoes. However, I believe for the price you should get more than the free bread. A salad or relish tray would be nice. Also the blueberry mojito was terrific!
