RUTH CHRIS is always amazing , but this time we had a waiter named Levi. He quickly became our favorite Server ever. Ruth Chris offers so many menu options, and everyone of them delicious . We try to book our travel around Ruth Chris steak houses. We are planning another trip in this weekend to see Levi :)

The meal was a failure for which I take partial credit for this debacle as we went after play and it was 1045 pm. Order was not correct, as i assume staff tired. Steak was put on a ate that literally was so hot the butter was boiling and turning brown. I moved steak to bread plate. Drinks from bar were watery as ice was melted. Simply we arrived and placed order too late in evening. Now in my defense i asked when i arrived that i know it is late and we can ho elsewhere. I was told not a problem but it obviously was. So eat there at normal hours avoid late night

I wish some of their plates didn’t look
so worn out. I know it’s probably due to use in the oven, but there has to be another way. I couldn’t show off all the food on my socials because some of the plates looked so beaten up. Food was wonderful though. My Dad had the best birthday!!

This has been one of my favorite restaurants for over 20 years. Always a good hit steak cooked perfectly and good sides and cocktails. But WOW has it taken a downturn over the last year. My steak last night was very undercooked and nowhere near medium. It was raw in the center. The sides were actually cool and the creamed spinach was cold. And the clientele has become more and more trashy. The new thing is they now have a security guard at the door to actually tell people to remove their hats of all things since so many customers now show up with baseball hats on backwards. It is like going to a rap concert now. Very sad since this was always a nice place but after going for almost 30 years they have lost me forever.

Lovely meal steaks are perfectly broiled. Bearnaise sauce may be old fashioned. But is delicious when done right.

With's Ruth Chris, you know what you get and what you are going to get - a decent steak flavor enhanced with butter. How can that be bad. Both my wife and I had the cold water lobster tail/filet specials, and they were excellent and well priced. Our cocktails were strong and as described, and not out of line with other New York City bars and restaurants. The lobster bisque and salad were nothing special. Both my wife and I thought the baked potatoes could have been better. We like Ruths Chris, but it is not our first choice of Steakhouses in NYC, or even our second, third, fourth, or fifth. We went because we were given a $200 gift certificate, that covered most of the meal, and it was convenient to where we needed to be. The service was excellent and room was really nice.

As always, this Ruth's Chris is perfect. We had one of our favorite servers, Laz, and he was his usual sweet self. He is pleasant and always gets our order right with just the right amount of conversation. Everyone at this Ruth's is awesome. Always get a warm welcome and wonderful service. When you are in town, try to get to this Ruth's. You won't be disappointed.

You expect a great experience at Ruth's Chris - and this location excels! The restaurant is beautiful; the food is consistently outstanding and perfectly prepared; and the service is actually memorable. Also, I mentioned that this was our Wedding Anniversary, and the restaurant went out of the way to make us feel special. You also expect great service here -- but our waiter, Adam, even exceeded that! He was personable while professional, and made us feel genuinely at home. We will ask for him specifically next time we dine here.

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years. A gem and so calm especially since Times Square is around the corner. Food is always great and so is the service. Certainly, no bargain but you can spent a lot more for much less. Go & enjoy.

The steak was awful - they served a thin rib eye for $70. Sides were not seasoned properly. There are much better options.

The service was very slow...especially on clearing plates. The meat was fine, but the sides were not hot.
I was charged for a drink that I did not have. I guess they didn't think that I would check the bill.
This location is nothing like Philadelphia or Providence. Very disappointed!

Food was excellent, as always. However, we missed the traditional bread pudding desert - the so-called "White chocolate bread pudding" cannot compare to the great, old-fashioned bread pudding that was formerly served at Ruth's Chris!

We typically love RC and have been to many. My son's favorite restaurant. This site on this occasion was just "OK" The filet was good but the ribeye not so much. Had it recooked but still not very good. Usually significantly better quality meat. The sides were very good. The restaurant was quiet which we like even when busy (which it was) The service was OK. Probably will not return to this particular location-for the expense it was not what I expected.

I really like Ruth Chris, it's one of my favorite steakhouses. My only real complaint is the pricing it seems to get more expensive every year but the service and quality (both are great) dont change which changes the value for cost ratio to me.

I called the restaurant to share that I made this reservation for my parents as a gift because I gave them a gift card. Reservation was made for 7:30pm and at 8:30pm they informed me that they were extremely rushed, service was poor and that they were already ordering dessert. After spending over $300 I don’t believe this is the type of service they deserve. We have been to this location several times and I’m very disappointed. It was honestly a huge let down and I’m really embarrassed that this is how their dinner went. If this is the type of service you will extend to your guests on a holiday then you should not even be open. It’s a very disappointing New Year’s Eve celebration for them and it was extremely underwhelming. Not what we expected at all from Ruth’s Chris.
