The food was nice, the steak was very tasty. The price is high, maybe they can bring more variety with the same price, ex. Variety of sides, desserts, etc. The host didn't look very happy and at the beggining the server was nice but he explained too fast the plates. Everyone else were very kind and nice.

Sorry to say but having dinner with Spider Man and his sneaker/hoodie crew took away from our experience. We were hoping for fine dining based on RC's dress code. They didn't even have the wherewithal to seat them separately or offer jackets. I felt bad for the young couple next to us who obviously felt uncomfortable as they were trying to have a special night. Seat Spiderman at the bar for heaven's sake. As for the service, could you please clear dirty/empty dishes? I emailed the managers and they haven't bothered to respond.

Porterhouse Steak for two of bad meat quality - not usual Ruth's Chris style.

Noisy neighbors on table next to ours, playing video games with loud noises - unbelievable!

USD 350 for a dinner for two? For that price, everything should be perfect, or not?

So sad this old restaurants cooked with too much meat tenderizer and too much salt and too much condiments
They have to be competitive with new healthy restaurants with really better kind of steaks and really less calories
Going to Ruth’s Chris now is going to go for so fat food with not great quality on steaks and not so good flavor
So sad

I have had dinner at other Ruth Chris restaurants in the past and my entree was always served hot & the food had always been tasty.

On this occasion, not the case. I order the shrimp entree & the shrimp were served over cooked & hard. The mash potatoes were extremely thick & no taste.

Amazingly well-cooked steak, very tasty side dishes and lovely five-star restaurant atmosphere! The waiters and waitresses are very friendly and reactive, but the hostess had a rather unpleasant attitude. The food is up to my expectations but the long waiting time was a downside. Definitely looks like a great place for dates if you’re looking for an upscale place.

Was disappointed in my petite filet. I asked for medium rare and got medium well/well done and I believe it was because they brought steak out on severely hot plate and my husband burned his hand on plate. Couldn’t believe a steak house can’t cook a steak correctly. Very disappointing.

Disappointed in the service. Not attentive at all or helpful. We were in NYC and looking for a great experience and we got the opposite. Very disappointed, sat with empty glasses, un-answered questions because our waiter kept disappearing and other waiters would come over and say “I’ll find your waiter” 10 minutes later ...nothing. Waited another 15 minutes to get out check after the table was completely cleared just sitting with coats on and tempted to walk out.

Only one of our four steaks were cooked properly. Mine was supposed to be med rare but was med. service was sporadic. We would have to ask for things more than once. They had us jammed in a corner and my chest was up against the table. My lobster was good.

While I know they serve meal on small plates to make the steaks look larger, there was no place to put my sides, and the lobsters kept falling off and onto the table.

While everything was very good, I want to single out our server, "Veronica," for special mention. Her warmth and friendliness made us feel immediately relaxed and welcome, especially as we had come in from 9 degree temperatures. Along the same lines, I want to thank the reservations team for their flexibility in seating us 45 minutes early for our reservation, since we cut short our walking around time.

We ate here for dinner before a show and it was quiet when we arrived but quickly got pretty noisy. Lobster tail appetizer was delicious, steaks were cooked as ordered and very tasty. Service was a bit slow so though we were seated by 5, we had to rush through desserts at 645 to make it to our show. This was the week after a Christmas in New York so we knew everything would be crowded, and it was, but overall, this is a good place to dine and we would return.
