    Lovely ambiance. Bartenders efficient and friendly. Cocktails excellent. Steaks were cooked to perfection and worth every penny. Sides were definitely large enough for sharing. Server was courteous and friendly but there were times we sat waiting for her return. Restaurant was not busy enough to warrant slow service.

    Went for my wife’s Birthday. Her steak and potatoes were great! My lobster Mac and cheese was pretty much uneatable though. The lobster was way over cooked and was more of a bouncy ball consistency. To be fair to the restaurant, I didn’t complain or mention it as to keep things happy and cordial for my wife. A miss on a menu item happens from time to time and we were overall happy with the experience. My crab cakes were good though. Fawn, our server, was attentive, helpful, but not over bearing.

    Worst experience ever at a Ruth’s Chris. Banquet room we were seated in was old and extremely cold. I would not have gone had I realized we wouldn’t be seated in the actual restaurant. It took a long time to even get our drinks and a super long time to get our entrees. Filet was under cooked though the other entrees were good. I won’t be going back anytime soon to a place I have always loved.

    Overall it was terrible. Ruth’s Chris has been a staple in Nashville for decades. This is not the same restaurant at all. The food was awful- low quality and not prepared well. A steakhouse should know how to cook a steak properly. This will likely be the last time dining there- after 30+ years.

    This is the second time in a row we have been here where the food was disappointing. Ruth Chris has been my favorite restaurant for many years. Unfortunately, this location is not consistent and the price increases make it even worse. This time the steak was over cooked and the fish was under cooked to the point of being cold. Not going here again.

    One of the worst most unsatisfying meals I’ve ever had at a “nice” restaurant from start to finish. Server wasn’t great, took forever to bring things, spilled a drink on us with nothing in return. The restaurant is under construction but they sat us in a small room with holes in the wall and patchwork. I felt like I was sitting in my unfinished garage. Those tables should never be seated with the condition of the walls. Food: lobster bisque was barely warm and had NO flavor. Caesar salad was way overdressed and floppy. Bread for the table had no flavor, even the butter needed salt. Filet, seasoned well but ordered medium rare and it came out medium well to well done. The sauce with the asparagus had no flavor. Mashed potatoes were just okay. The French fries were over cooked and hard. Shrimp had good seasoning but over cooked and rubbery. Drinks: lemon drop martini was one of the worst I’ve ever had, it tasted old. Old fashioned was watered down. For that price, where are the fancy ice cubes? Dessert: cheesecake was decent but it’s a cheesecake. Bread pudding had a nice crust but still not a dish I would order again. The icing on the cake was the disgusting bathroom that was dirty and not taken care of. Overall for over $100 per person, I would have been more satisfied with McDonald’s.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - NashvilleResponded on August 22, 2022EmilyZ, thank you for your honest comments. We are sorry to hear that you had a less than favorable experience. Your feedback is very important to us and essential for our growth, not only at this location but also as a brand.

    Ruth's Chris has been mine and my wife's favorite restaurant over the years. We have dined at this particular location several times. Our food was , as always, excellent. Our bartender was great. The time it took to get our food, however, was ridiculous. Also, the restaurant itself is starting to look a little tattered. I really think it is time for a remodel. We will of course be back, but this experience was a little disappointing.

    This was the worst meal I ever had at a Ruth Chris steakhouse. Our server was extremely slow and incompetent. We had a party of 12 people and we were there for 3 1/2 to 4 hours because she was wandering around most of the night rather than taking care of us. It was also the worst steak I ever had. Several people including myself ordered filet mignon‘s and they were very fatty and stringy. Not something you would expect in a filet mignon. I’ve always enjoyed my dinner experiences at many other Ruth Chris steak houses but the one in Nashville is terrible.

    Restaurant was virtually empty, and undergoing construction in some areas we walked through. We sat in a room with two other people, who left, so we were the only ones there for most of our meal with no sounds other than us talking. Unfortunately, even at it's best, Jeff Ruby's on 4th has a much better ambiance. Waiter was on his second week there, and performed the best of any restaurant we've been to. Kudos to him!!! Food was good, steak and cheesecake excellent, creamed spinach good but came out only warm, and cooled off more as we ate. Otherwise, a good meal.
