Terrible. I am so disappointed. I’ve been to this restaurant before so went again but will not go in the future. They didn’t do anything special for our anniversary even though told me on the phone they would. When I asked the host, he said they were low on confetti - lame excuse. We never got free dessert. And to top it off, I get an email saying I didn’t honor my reservation. Terrible customer service.

My daughter’s birthday. Delicious meal & excellent service. Only complaint is that we were packed in
Like sardines. When people at the next table stood up we could not move from our table, and vice versa.

MUSIC / AMBIANCE

The music continues to be horrible and boring! Selection goes from blue grass to slow jazz to banjo to mellow 80s. No rhyme, reason, cohesion. The music selection many years ago was way better than the past few years. Goodness! At least get a basic subscription to Spotify, Apple, or whatever music service.

I have been coming to this RC location regularly for many years with family, friends, coworkers and colleagues as I’m the nearby UBS building. I have mentioned the music / ambiance issue many times to your staff at this location, but apparently their suggestions to management does not matter much.

As there are so many nearby options (OP, Capital Grille, Del Friscos, Mastro’s, etc), we will be recommending other venues for upcoming holiday, and team gatherings to other venues.

Additional feedback via social media to follow.

Came here on Thanksgiving alone as I had work in the area. The food was average although the sides are extremely expensive - but it is touristy so I guess that's what you get. But for the price, you could add some free vegetables... But may I make some suggestions as your management on the day was extremely lacking.

You need a better system for calling people when their table is ready, especially when you had so many people waiting as you did on this day. I'd recommend some sort of pager/beeper as many restaurants have, not having your staff walk through saying their name - some of them weren't too loud and in my 50 minute wait for my table, I noticed two tables who complained they did not hear. Also when I was finally seated (after asking twice, as first I was told it would be 10 minutes and then I when I asked again after 35 minutes was told it would be an additional 45 minutes!!) there were a lot of tables empty. I understand you have to stagger tables so you don't overwhelm the kitchen but it seems clear you need to have a better process for notifying the host stand that a table is free. I had to ask two staff members to actually check I had to wait an additional 45 minutes before they seated me on a table that was clearly ready, as were many in my section.

The staff were nice but I think it's obvious that you need to review your service process as your restaurant doesn't seem to be equipped to handle anything but smooth service. That is no slight on the staff who were clearly trying their best but something for management to consider. Appreciate all the staff who were working on their thanksgiving.

The issue was it was Thanksgiving and the volume of business had to be more than they expected as it was a madhouse. The staff was doing the best they could given the circumstances. It was not the typical Ruth’s Chris experience and was not an enjoyable one. Not so much an issue with service or the staff but the hostile environment that was created due to the volume of business and the delays it caused to the reservation system.

We arrived at 18.05 for an 18.30 booking, we finally got shown to our seats at 18.47. Our order was taken at 19.10 including drinks. The drinks finally arrived at 19.25, nearly 40 minutes after we had sat down at the table. The service really was not what I would expect when paying around 65 dollars per head. We were recommended this restaurant by two people and were hoping for a great experience but it was obvious this restaurant was putting profit over service. Quite sad as this was our first Thanksgiving day meal In NYC and we expected better. The food was OK, not great though again I think the kitchen were so overworked that the plating up was not up to their usual standard. Yes NYC is busy this time of year but we have not received poor service in other restaurants we have visited. Insult was further added by us having to wait for the bill 15 minutes after we asked for it, finally leaving about 20.50.

Although we had a 5;45 reservation, we were not seated until 6;25. It was clear that the restaurant had overbooked. There were mobs of people in the lobby waiting to be seated. I would not recommend this restaurant on Thanksgiving. The food and service, as always, was outstanding.

Great choice for a Thanksgiving feast. The service was great with the waiter knowing the menu inside and out plus he made very good suggestions for wine pairing. The turkey was buttery and flavorful, and considering the crowds coming in they got everyone’s meal out fast.

It was an enjoyable dining experience and I’ll be back again to try their legendary steaks.

I've been to many Ruth's Chris steak houses across the country and I have to say this was highly disappointing! Both of us had the surf and turf in the lobster was extremely overcooked, the steak was very mediocre and I actually had to send the lobster mac and cheese back because it wasn't good at all! They were extremely cordial and taking back the entree and the waiter was excellent!

Food was great, but the service was not. We had two primary waiters for Thanksgiving lunch - Percy (I believe that was his name) and Laz. Percy was ok but Laz was horrible. He displayed an obnoxious, impatient, “I don’t give a f...” demeanor. It may be the “NYC attitude” thing or perhaps he was bitter to work on a holiday, but he works in the restaurant business and customer service is key which he can improve on. I doubt I would dine at the midtown location again to avoid the negative experience but will still head to other locations in the future.

I had the Thanksgiving turkey dinner prix fixe, a great value. The turkey was moist and delicious and the gravy and dressing were nicely seasoned and tasty. With the salad, side dish and dessert, it was a substantial meal. I also enjoyed the raspberry rosemary cosmo. It was not my first Thanksgiving at Ruth's Chris and it won't be the last.

Wonderful! It was my fiancé’s birthday, and all I did was mention it in the reservation notes and when we got there they had decorated the table, our server sang to us when she approached the table for the first time, and they gave us a nice birthday dessert! What a lovely surprise.
Steak was SUPERB — I thought it was a bit over salted, but still fantastic and my fiancé says it was one of the best steaks she’s ever had.
Service was impeccable.
Thank you!!!

I went to Ruth Chris with my 110 dollar open table reward gift card. I was hugely embarrassed that the gift card did not work. When I called the number on the card I was told there was a problem with the card.... The 110 was loaded then debited thus I could not use it and had to charge the full amount to my credit card! The manager thought I was trying to get away with something... It was my anniversary and both my husband and I were embarrassed beyond belief. No one could help me on your toll free number this was horrible and literally ruined our anniversary. To top it off a couple at the next table had a dog dining with them!!! What a horrible experience. Can someone please call me to rectify this problem. 516 459 0159.jayne hudson

We sat in an area between the main dining room and the private party room in the back, since the area only accommodated 5 tables, we were able to have a peaceful and private dining experience. Most restaurants today have bad acoustics and often play music so you can’t hear one another speak. Of course the food was excellent as well as the service.
