Not worth the price. The service wasn’t great and my $70 steak was cold. Two others at the table said that their food was cold too.

I was a bit dissappointed by my sirloin steak. It was on the med. well side of medium and not quite as "Sizzling" as usual. Service was good and the rest of the meal was good.

Always a great experience at this Ruth's Chris. The food is consistently great and our server on this visit was wonderful. The steaks were their usual highest quality. Also your ability to handle people with food allergies in a safe manner is noteworthy. Thank you and see you soon.

Have dined at many Ruth’s Chris Steakhouses around the country and we feel this one is the least favorite. I asked for well done filet and they cut a very thin strip and then it was still red inside. Really? My husband asked for med/med well and it was rare inside. We don’t feel we will go back to the NYC location again.

My first time at Ruth's and was looking forward to a nice steak. Ordered the ribeye medium. Ruth's must have a different idea of what is a ribeye as what was delivered to me was a third fat and grizzle as well as cooked beyond medium. Because I was with associates, I didn't make a fuss but at $58, I was definitely disappointed.

We have eaten at this Ruth Chris many times in the past and always love it! On this visit, it was our Wedding Anniversary, which was known by the restaurant...but our waiter all but ignored us after we ordered There was a table of 6-8 businessmen at the table next to us and our waiter seemed intent on pleasing them!! Never asked how our meal was, etc...
And at the tale end of our meal, hurriedly dropped of a dessert and barely mumbled "Happy Anniversary".

Very inferior treatment from any Ruth Chris we ever visited! The food was great, but the service was a huge disappointment!

We have been going to Ruth Chris for years and I will say this is the first time we didn’t enjoy our experience. The service was not like it was. They forgot items ordered, they didn’t serve the Porter House for 2 like they normally do and it was salted more than normally. They would always serve a piece on your plate to demonstrate for those that have never been there. They served dessert without giving us utensils. Not to mention an extremely loud table of guest that were vaporing in the restaurant it seemed like the staff turned their head so it wouldn’t effect their tip which I do understand but management should have been notified.

I noted in the reservation that I was celebrating a wedding anniversary, so the hostess sprinkled Happy Anniversary confetti with hearts on the table when she sat us. It was thoughtful and festive. The service and steak were good as expected. The shrimp on my filet mignon was a little dry but well-seasoned. It was also a little uncomfortable in the restaurant, because instead of heat (on a freezing snowy day) there was cool air blowing on our heads. But overall, my husband and I had a nice memorable time there.

We arrived an hour early and ended up being seated within 10 min. The service was impeccable and the steaks were tender, flavorful and cooked just right. Although we were full we couldn’t resist their homemade cheesecake and thank goodness we didn’t. It was incredible. Make sure you have a reservation though. NY is crazy busy

We’ve been to many Ruth’s criss across the us. This one was not up to standard. We were seated 50 minutes late. We felt that the management could care less. This is an expensive restaurant and there is no excuse for not honoring a reservation. Open table should warn their members to avoid this place.

our Table was ready at the exact time of our reservations. We didn’t really like our table’s location - near a busy waiter’s corridor, but were happy to be seated. Our steaks were great except for one over done fillet. The mashed potatoes were not anyone’s favorites. However, the dessert was to die for.

We had a lovely dinner but service was not good. Once we finished eating, we waited 10 mins for the waiter to come offer dessert. Once given those menus, we waited 20 more mins with no service-all without drinks. Finally we asked another waiter to get our check for us. Food was incredible but for this money, service should be better.

I come to this Ruth's Chris quite often because I am lucky enough to work across the street. We are inundated with so many fancy and expensive steak restaurants in a 3 block span. I've tried them all. But this is the only one I keep coming back to. The warmth of the people and surroundings, the service and the food has got me hooked. There is no other place like this that checks all the boxes. I was lucky enough to have Mark as my server. Everything is always perfect when he's in command. I get greeted by Nick, who always has a smile. And then there is Mario, who always gives me a big hug like family. I truly love this place and all the people in it. Don't miss out when you visit the Big Apple or if you work or live in the area, this should be your go to place for excellence. They make a mean burger.

I had the tomahawk, creamed spinach, mushrooms and fries.

Mushrooms were excellent.
Tomahawk started off good but ended up being overcooked even though I got medium rare. Probably due to the hot plate. Some parts were way too charred leading to two extremely unpleasant bites.
Spinach and fries were mediocre.

Wine and dessert were good.

Service was attentive when it happened. We found ourself waiting for service a lot which is unexpected at this type of establishment.

The steaks are outstanding. The 3 potato dishes I've tried over a couple of visits are only okay. The seating is tight, making it uncomfortable and often ducking or being bumped by people walking by. The service the other night was particularly slow. Our waiter was not very attentive but friendly.

Typically I have a great experience here. I got the filet,Caesar salad, and the potatoes au gratin. The food was amazing however our service was lacking. First our table was shaky and they tried to screw bit back together while there were drinks in it spilling the drinks. Then our waitress was MIA. This is the first time I have ever had an experience that was like this at Ruth Chris.
