Went for my friend's birthday. The table was decorated.The food was exceptional. The steak was perfectly cooked. The ahi tuna app was particularly delicious. The server was great, can't remember his name but we had a lovely evening.

We have been to this restaurant many times and have noticed a lot of transitions. There was a group of 8 women that had eaten, had their left overs to go, yet they were just sitting there taking selfies and singing, mostly some rap songs. Unfortunately this did not appear to disturb most of the other clientele. It was not an elegant setting. The Clientele has definitely changed. We had to send one of our steaks back that was extremely undercooked and our Spinach Madeline was actually cold. When you spend $250 on a meal you expect something better. We will look elsewhere before we return here for more reasons than just the disappointment in the food.

Took the time to make a reservation. Disappointed with seating in rear of restaurant, requested a move and told it would take some time to setup a table despite passing many empty tables. We always enjoy the warm bread and butter that was not available. Service a little slow on refills given the restaurant was 25% full. But as usual, what was ordered and available was delicious

We had 7:15 reservations for our 12th year anniversary. We were seated on time, and waiter was at our table within minutes. My husband enjoyed his bone in filet, it was perfect. I had the crab cakes which they NEVER disappoint. Our waiter was awesome (can’t remember his name), very attentive. Also the lemon drop martini is always on point.

Ruth Chris is my favorite place, I have been going there for over 25 years and it is better than it's ever been. Robyn our waitress is a long time friend of visiting Ruth Chris and has waited on us always with a great attitude, personality and efficient service. Having her serve us is a pleasure. Kudos for having such a valued employee.

We took advantage of the Restaurant Week Special Menu. I requested outdoor dining because of Covid. The outdoor patio is very nice and spacious. The atmosphere was fantastic as well as the food. Started with a lemon drop martini before dinner. In my opinion, it's one of the best in the area
As usual the steak was cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the crab cake as his entree. No fillers, all crabment. Our side items, the creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes, were excellent, as well as our desserts of bread pudding and creme brulee'.
Our waiter was Winston. He was awesome. Attentive but not hovering, wonderful sense of humor, and very helpful. He made our dinner very enjoyable.
We will definitely be back.

There are certain thing you should expect when you drop $100+ per person on dinner and tasty food is only part of it.

Ruth's Chris food is always outstanding. Steaks seasoned and cooked perfectly. Sides were hot and very good. Where this location, inside Harrah's Hotel, really lacked was the service.

I don't know weather it was lack of training or what the problem was, but we will not be going to this location again. Our waiter took our drink and appetizer orders very promptly and all was delivered pretty quickly. But then we had to eat out apps with the large menus still sitting on the small table with us. The waiter hadn't taken the rest of our order yet. We weren't asked if we need more to drink. Nor were we asked if we wanted more bread, (which would have been awesome with a BBQ shrimp appetizer).
When we were done and the table was cleared, we were then able to order our mains. Another 1/2 hour before the steaks were served and I got to order a glass of wine with the meal.

Another thing which was odd in an upscale restaurant was that when we went to take the leftovers home, we were given 2 styrofoam containers and a bag. I have no problem boxing leftovers at Outback. But for 3-4 times the price, take it and box it up in back of house. Maybe it's a restaurant policy or COVID thing? Don't know.

All in all, great food but lousy experience.

Food was great other than two steaks that had a tendon running through them and made them tough. Server was very friendly and helpful, but the pace of the meal was not good - way way too long. It really fell apart at the end, where we had to ask several folks for our check before we got it. Love this place, but it wasn't their best day.
