We loved our server Mark and the attendants who assisted...one of our steaks came out cooked to the wrong temp and they had it fixed in under 5 minutes - exceptional service the price fix was great for an after theater dinner!

My wife and I have dinner at Ruth Chris on many occasions and this by far was the most disappointing experience. We were greeted nicely and taken to our table in a timely fashion. However, once seated the experience turned for the worst. It took about 20 minutes for our server to approach us. The server asked what we wanted to drink but forgot to bring the drink menu. We decided not to order drinks and just asked for water. My wife and I already knew what we wanted to eat so we asked to simply place our food order. The server said he would be right back. Another 10 minutes flew by when the server returned and apologized saying he forgot to have the water brought over. He immediately had that taken care of and proceeded to take our order. My wife ordered the lobster bisque soup and Lobster Mac n Cheese as her entree. I ordered the stuffed free range chicken (normally my favorite) and the sweet potato casserole (which I love)The server walked away. My wife and I began conversing and she realized after another 10 minutes that the server never brought the complimentary bread to the table. A few more minutes went by and the server returned to the area with water & bread for another couple who’s table was a few feet away from ours. I was able to get the servers attention and asked if bread comes with our meal as usual. He apologized and said he would take care of it. He returned shortly after with bread which was warm but hard as a brick. My wife almost wanted to leave but I encouraged her to stay. The server returned again and informed us that our food would be out shortly. At this point I was literally timing everything. 12 minutes later our food showed up. My wife enjoyed her food and my chicken wasn’t as stuffed as it normally would be and a large portion of it was too dry so I couldn’t finish it. The sweet potato casserole was amazing as always. The server returned and asked “was everything to your liking” I started to be honest but didn’t. Still left a $10 tip

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we will surely be back! The steak was phenomenal, the crab cakes were divine, the sweet potatoes with the crusted top...delightful. The waiter picked an incredible wine for us. It was just an amazing experience.

Wonderful experience! Our server was attentive and did a great job. The food was fabulous. There was a food blogger at the next table with bright lights taking pictures of her food. I pointed out that it was disturbing to our table, and they asked them to move right away. We will be back!

We’ve been to several different branches of Ruth’s Chris including New York and always thought it excellent. This time we had to send our steaks back. Having ordered them medium rare they were only just medium and as the plates are so hot they go on cooking so would have ended up well done. Although second ones were very good we did not enjoy the meal as much.

Ruth’s Chris steak House never disappoints!
The atmosphere was classy the servers were very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic! I love their lobster and our server even took it out of the shelf for me! My daughter mother and I spent part of our meal in silence because the food was so delicious that we wanted to savor it 😃. Delicious Caesar salad and steak and lobster and shrimp!! I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant!

Food was excellent! One note of caution: our steaks were served on small, but sizzling-hot plates, which was great; however, the juice from the steaks on these plates buzzed and popped, and sizzled onto my shirt. It seems to me that this may have been remedied by larger, sizzling hot plates. Or a bib for me. ;)

Service was uneven. The busboy, who was quite sweet and was trying hard, hadn’t been trained well. This is the managers fault, and quite unfair to the busboy.

The waiter (Percy), also nice enough, didn’t take charge of flow of our experience. Also, he didn’t know about some of the after-dinner wines, and didn’t offer to find someone who did. I made a selection anyway, which luckily tasted delicious.

So, overall, this was an expensive “C” or “C minus” experience. With some easy changes (busboy and waiter properly trained, for example), an “A” experience would be likely.

Visited multiple Ruth's Chris establishments over the years, in multiple states, and usually have quality meals with excellent service. Unfortunately, on this night, the Midtown location dropped the ball. Food was good, if steaks slightly overdone. Service was slow, and generally inattentive. Our waiter, Jimmy, nice young man, and hard to know if the kitchen was the culprit, but painstakingly slow (and it wasn't not crowded, at all). Then we're overcharged for our wine. This never happens, but it did this night. Spoke with our maitre d, who informed the manager, and asked if we'd wait to speak with him. When he finally came to meet us, he was, at best, uninterested, and at worst, didn't care. About incorrect bill, slow service, or average quality food. You'd think they'd want to hear about issues to address at their restaurant, but maybe not. Too bad, there are a half a dozen steakhouses within a few blocks , next time we'll look elsewhere

We enjoyed another wonderful lunch at this Ruth's Chris. We were happy to see Laz, who knew exactly what we wanted and how we wanted it cooked. We also got to see Mario, who is always so sweet. If you haven't tried this restaurant, you should put it on your list of special places to eat. Everything is always perfect here, especially the people. They are warm and treat you like family.

Everything was good. Just a note on pacing. When the entrees came, we were still on salad. To their credit, the waitstaff offered to bring the food back later but I did not want to eat food that had been sitting. Perhaps a little more communication between waiter and other servers. Thanks!

We arrived early to have a drink at the very friendly bar. The table was decorated as I requested for my friend’s birthday. Our waiter Miguel was fantastic. The food is pricey but in accord with most steak places. What raises the bar here is the very friendly staff and the ambiance. A very friendly and unstuffy vibe. No loud music which seems to be the norm nowadays (WHY????!!!!😩).

As usual, my visit to this Ruth's Chris was awesome. Laz was our server and he is always attentive and makes sure all our food comes out perfectly. He actually knows exactly what we want to eat and how we like it cooked. Everyone is very warm and the minutes you walk through the door, you feel comfortable. You should definitely visit this Ruth's Chris for your next special lunch or dinner. We can't forget Mario, who always comes over to say hi.

Had an amazing dinner that is always our experience at Ruth’s. The bartenders Gordon (?) and Matt were a ton of fun. We did pre-dinner drinks and chose to have dessert at the bar because of them. This was our honeymoon, and are so happy we came for dinner!

Our table was assigned by the group table in the small room.
Very noisy atmosphere.
They didn’t care the sounds to us.
I was with my daughter and she was complaining.

This Ruth's seemed off... it could be that we were there pre-theater but everything seemed to be rushed and not quite to the standards I'm used to at a Ruth's Chris. I think we were in and out in under an hour which, again could have been the push people want to get to the 8 PM shows but some things were off -
The crab cakes were obviously old and pre-cooked. It was maybe 5 minutes before they showed up on the table. The plate, sizzling like the Ruth's Chris trademark - the crabcakes - warm, not hot. Tasty and full of crab but...
I had the cowboy ribeye. Honestly, it seemed tougher than normal. Each piece of meat is different but this seemed to have some rather chewy sections for ribeye. The spinach, my benchmark of a great steak house was loose, somewhat watery.
Overall, not the best effort but kudos for the dessert and acknowledging our anniversary. Like I said, might be an off night, might be a push them out the door to get them to the theater shows. I, of course, will go back to Ruth's Chris. What's life without a great steak.

I went for restaurant week and they ran out of the steak for the restaurant week menu (8oz) so that was confusing. The food was of course tasty but they forgot my desserts at the end of the night so I was kind of disappointed.
