Beginning with a rude front desk staff I wish I had asked her name . I very politely asked to change our table Because we were 6 and our table was in the middle we were almost touch the other customers . Well I asked them for another table since I made the reservation long time before the date, they said that they were waiting for large parties and that table in middle was the only table available which we staying there and to the end of our dinner there was no large party and the table we asked to moved in the begging was there the whole time empty . So, it was my birthday my guest weren’t happy bc we were really close almost touch the others people and the Front desk Staff Rude !!! Just to be clear the waiters was very friendly but the front desk Horrible .

Praises to Adam, our server. Everyone else who waited on us was also great. Minor comment: minimize asking how we are enjoying the food every 5 minutes and if we wanted the food packed up already while we were still drinking wine and chatting; interrupts the flow of the conversation. Other than that, great dining experience.

This was not our first experience here and has been our go-to for birthdays. Shrimp cocktail was excellent and lobster bisque was very tasty if somewhat watery. We had the Porterhouse for two and it was very, very disappointing. It arrived very undercooked--although the server was accommodating, the steak was grizzly and even somewhat tough. The experience was a big disappointment for a birthday celebration. This is the first time we haven't thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Ruth's Chris. I would hesitate before recommending this place--I hope we don't ever have a repeat experience.

Staff was great! Food was so so. Kitchen over cooked sweet potato casserole. Sam, our waiter, said it would take some time to remake so opted not to wait bc we had plans & pressed for time by then. Bread pudding was hard & not tasty at all. First time being disappointed in meal at RC and it was for my birthday. However, the hostess & wait staff were great!

We made the reservation to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Thi and Nikki made sure we would have a special memorable night out the moment when we walked in to the restaurant. Thi went above and beyond to ensure the best service we could get. She not only made us feel completely at home, but also she made great recommendations on cocktail and wine pairing with our dinner. The food was cooked to perfection. Niki and the manager Karen came to greet us. Overall, it’s not just a special night out, it’s a wonderful experience!

Felt like entering into a TGI Fridays. A server a hostess were at the greeting stand. They left, leaving it empty. Someone else came and asked if I had been helped. He left and a third person returned. All seemed very confused and no one ever apologized about the wait. About 12 people ahead of us, so we were sat 25 minutes after our reservation time to a near - empty restaurant. The food was excellent-calamari well seasoned, crispy and not oily, the filet was perfection! The bar drinks (Blackberry sidecar and Mohito) were super sweet so I didn't order another. Remember that they coat every steak in butter so let them know if you do not want the butter! The music could be changed to more classical to raise the atmosphere, but instead it was pop/rap which felt odd for the space. For 2 people, the check was $245 and on the check stated "GRATUITY NOT INCLUDED" very large. So I plopped down $300 then looked more closely. The "grat/service ch" was already added to the bill. I asked the server and he said "oh yeah, its included". Don't write "gratuity not included" if it is. The service definitely was great and deserved over 20%.

As always, food and service at this high end chain steakhouse was excellent. The only disappointment during this visit was the potatoes au gratin were significantly undercooked.

Ruth’s Chris is a decent restaurant to have an outing with people you’re close to. However, the service seemed rushed. As soon as we were seated the server seemed as though he was trying to get me and my group out. He was constantly coming towards our table and checking on us while we were eating. We felt rushed and barely engaged in conversation.. We also asked for a second round of bread but our second batch wasn’t fresh.

The service and ambiance was excellent. I ordered a raspberry cosmopolitan the raspberries were not fresh at all and no spring of rosemary, the raspberry were a turnoff they almost looked like they had mold on them. They have a new menu I ordered the 6 ounce filet, it did not taste like filet mignon or the filet I remember ordering, it probably was a cheap cut. They no longer serve onion rings and no longer have the French Fries they used to serve. Based on this experience most likely will not be coming back to this location. Our server was great! I cannot fault him on the quality of food and the ambiance was very pleasant.

They sat us at an alcove, side room and not in the main dining. We were properly dressed. There were tables for 2 available in the main room though. We did not make any request to be transferred to the main dining hall so aa not to fuss. Wondering why we were seated far from the public. We didn’t request for privacy.

We had recently eaten in Ruth Chris Waltham MA - and the food was excellent. The steaks were served on skillets and the quality of the steaks was exceptional - so we decided to eat in Ruth Chris NYC. However this was a total different experience.
We received a call from the restaurant on the day of our reservation to confirm our booking. We were told by the female that we needed proof of vaccination, Photo ID, Birth certificate if no ID. We were told that dress attire is Smart Casual - no tank tops ( it is currently winter in NYC ) no cut off shorts, no cropped tops.
I would assume that the restaurant would know that I was fully aware of dress code and vaccination requirements when I made the reservation for my family. It sounded like they would prefer that we would not keep our reservation - and honestly I would now prefer that we didn’t.
While the server Adam was attentive - the steaks were sub par to say the least - and no skillets at this location for sure.
Nothing about this restaurant impressed me - the front desk staff, the cramped seating arrangements or the food.
Would definitely NOT recommend this location. Very disappointed in this Ruth Chris and a big disappointment to the brand.

I had the ribeye rare plus but I am guessing due to the heated plated and "sizzle" it Became more medium well, creme Brulee good the crisp with the tuna stack is unnecessary, ribeye super fatty I had it with the mushrooms to make it like a steak diane all in all maybe don't get a ribeye rare and service was good

Excellent good. Excellent service priced appropriately . Only negative points. Music was awful and so loud had to talk very loudly so dinner partner and I could hear each other. Inappropriate for such an elegant restaurant. Ruined all the ambience
Bar crowd stood into hallway that led to restaurant. They were also loud and boisterous

Food was delicious; service was lightning fast (way too fast!). Our salads showed up within a few minutes of ordering them, our entrees showed up as we were eating the last bites of our salads. I've eaten at many Ruth's Chris locations (including this one) before and never had service that quick. The food was delicious and our server was very professional, I just wasn't expecting our food to arrive with the speed of a local diner. Turning tables over faster leads to higher restaurant profits, I get that. But this was just too fast for what I expect from Ruth's Chris.
