Ruths Chris has always been out go to for celebrations and this time was no different. We have always had an amazing experience. This time, my husband decided to get the petite ribeye, but accidentally said petite filet when he was ordering. He didn't even realize he said that until I asked him about it and, by that time, they had already cooked his steak. They were incredibly gracious and swapped it out for the ribeye, even though it was entirely our mistake. Love places like this!

This Ruth Chris is always dependable to deliver an excellent meal with first class service. A true white table cloth restaurant for the Nashville area. The best filet mignon steak and crab cakes in the city. Prices are in line with the premium menu and service.

We went for my boyfriends birthday. When we got to our seat there was confetti sprinkled on our table as well as a note wishing him a happy birthday which added a special touch. Thank you Ruth’s Chris for the experience!

Now I know why a Saturday night reservation was 1,000 points. We are frequent flyers at Ruth’s Chris and the Nashville location has gone downhill. The service was disappointing and the clientele has gone way down. Even the valet had poor service. Not what we expect when spending $300 for dinner. Last visit.

The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. I was pleased to find a full meal among the list of Chef's specials - salad, filet, shrimp, side and desert - for just under $50. My wife and I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday and would definitely recommend Ruth's Chris for a special occasion.

So delicious. We went for husband’s birthday and they went out of their way to make it special. Everything we ordered, calamari, steak, sea bass, macaroni and cheese, and Brussels sprouts, was phenomenal. Worth the splurge.

Excellent restaurant, however, they attempt to stack too many tables in the center or floor section of the restaurant. Privacy and mobility in this area was very restricted. We had a booth, which was very nice, however, would not go back if our seating consisted of this crowded center section.

Shameful & embarrassing!
We were celebrating my secretaries post chemo cancer free status. She had never been to Ruths Chris and was excited. Wouldn’t you know she was VERY dissatisfied and disappointed!? She received an undercooked Ribeye, One that was actually SMALLER than the petite one ordered by other persons at the table. She ordered medium well, she received it WELL DONE the FIRST time and medium (very red) the second time. They brought a new HOT plate apparently to let it “cook” at the table. When That didn’t work took it back to place it on the grill. After all of that the little pink monstrosity STILL came out MEDIUM! The server and the guy from the “management team” knew it, never did they say or seem very apologetic about this ruined culinary experience.

Our servers were very nice , but the “back room” they stuck us in was ugly , Un-decorated and only had two big tables in it. It appeared as though they hastily cleared out a utility room at the last minute and threw us in it.

Also, the food is, ugly, Not impressive, plated ungarnished. Our first choice was Morton’s but since 2 of us had been to Ruths’s Before we decided to take our friend there. Bad move, and I actually suspected it.
When you spend over $500 at a place called a steak house, you’d think they could get a $60 chunk of meat prepared the way you ordered it!

We were staying in the Loew’s Hotel in Nashville, where this Ruth’s Chris was located. It was very cold and rainy out so we wanted something close but still good. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The food was wonderful, service was excellent, and the ambiance was perfect. It was a nice relaxing dinner.

I've always had good steaks at Ruth's Chris...it's our go to for special occasions. But we were very disappointed on Christmas Eve this year. The cowboy ribeye wasn't good at all...not cooked consistently throughout & way too much fat. Our service was not as good as usual either

Christmas Gathering at Ruth Chris is a always an enjoyable Christmas treat. Our party of four were seated right away according to our reservation time. But first the Valet parking is the only way to go at this Ruth Chris. Drops you off right at the door. Steve and our wait team did an excellent job informing us of the specials and making sure they were attentive to our request the entire meal.
We had the seafood tower for an appetizer and it was "out of this world." (lobster, crab legs and jumbo- jumbo- jumbo shrimp were exquisite. We then went to entrees-we ordered filets, ribeyes and NY Strip-cooked to perfection, sizzling hot. For sides we had lobster mac and cheese which was terrific and au gratin potatoes which were perfect. All four of us waddled out because the servings sizes were enough to take the left overs home. The price is upward but the taste and portion sizes dampen the sticker price!

Located in the heart of the city. But once through the doors, the city melts away. Great ambiance! The steak was outstanding. Even better than the ones we have had at Ruth's Chris in our hometown! The lobster mac & cheese was heavenly. And last but not least, the extra dirty martini was mixed perfectly! Definitely will visit again!
