Overall Ruth Chris never disappoints. The food was excellent. I do have two comments.
They claim to have a happy hour but the cocktails included in the reduced price list are very limited.
We were disappointed with our Caesar Salad. Dressing was excellent but the lettuce was not leafy at all.

The service and atmosphere was very good, but I wasn't overwhelmed by the food. Mine and my son's filet mignon had piece of fat in it, which has never happened in any other steakhouse we've been to.

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Ruth's Chris Steak House on July 4,2018-6:00 dinner reservation. From start to finish every aspect was outstanding. The flourish of hearts on the table with complimentary champagne with Excellent service by all wait staff added to a tremendous meal. The chopped salad with perfect dressing, fabulous corn, asparagus, side dipping sauces, great shoe string french fries, loaded baked potato all complimented our spot-on Ribeye steaks! Although the carpet needs to be replaced we enjoyed a memorable meal which we have enjoyed consistently the past ten years. Thank You Ruth's Chris!

Overall this restaurant is a fantastic place to eat and the service was excellent. I had the veal ravioli for my starter and for my main I had a cooked to perfection fillet steak. My wife had calamari and prawns and both were fabulous !! The shoestring fries are a huge portion but our daughter loved them!! Great experience in NYC

Very disappointed! I ordered the sea bass and the fish was raw and I couldn’t even cut through it. I sent it back and when I cut it this time the fish was rubbery ! I will not go back . I talked to the waiter and it was taken off the bill. Very surprised the manager never even bothered to come out. Poor management along with terrible food is a bad combination!

The steaks here were excellent snd perfectly prepared. The atmosphere was distinctly less pretentious than many steakhouses. We enjoy pretentious places, too, but the lack of attitude here was refreshing. And the food and service are as good as it gets. Waiters are attentive but not obtrusive. Casual like Peter Luger but much more friendly. The filet, generally not a really tasty cut of meat, is as good here as we’ve had anywhere and the ribeye was perfection. If you want a good steak and don’t need mock-toniness, this is the place. Also, prices for everything except steaks are generally lower than the fancier places. The old-fashioned creamy cheesecake was a treat and it’s big enough for two. We’ll be back.

Poor service server was tripled sat, another server gave us our food. He was very busy. Didn’t ask if we would like a beverage with our dessert. He was walking away so I called him and asked for a cup of tea. Bathroom lock was broken people kept opening door while I was on the toilet bowl doing my business. No toilet paper. Toilet paper all over the bathroom stall. Waste basket overflowing Dirty bathroom. A/C blasting on high very cold in place. When I made RSVP I informed them we would like to sit in main dining room the woman manager I informed manager that I requested main dining room she said that 2 children were crying in main hall. I didnt see or hear any kids crying or seen any kids in dining room. We were put into tiny packed room and had poor service because server was triple sat at same time. We were celebrating Fathers Day! A horrible experience so I cancelled Sunday dinner.

I’ve eaten at a lot of steakhouses... and this is by far the best of the chain ones. This is my 3rd business lunch at this location and I’ve also eaten for dinner here with my wife. The menu is simple, the food delicious, and the service is classic.

Stop at after picking up my parents from seeing the Lion King. Was greeted promptly, but had to wait until our table was ready.....Something that seemed quite strange happened when heading to the table.......The young man told my mother to remove her hat......(it was Sunday)....I told him, I saw that policy before, and only saw it enforced for men, and I have Ruth Chris in multiple cities and countries.......He was young, so I let it go...........After being seated, our server Catharin (CAT), greeted us with a wide smile and warm glow............all was right again......We ordered and Cat checked on us, at all the right times and the food came out nice, hot, fresh and most important tasty. The parents had a wonderful meal. The decor is an old fashion wood steakhouse look, a small staircase to come down and some separated areas. As an F.Y.I. CAT looks like a very famous actress....so at first we thought we may be getting "punked"....

Unfortunately had to flag down server twice for refills for myself and guest. Table not kept tidy. Definite lack of attention as should be expected at this level of restaurant. This has always been our “go to” restaurant while in NYC. We will move to another location. Food was excellent.
