My ribeye steak was intitially served to me rare when I asked for it to be medium, so the waiter took it back into the kitchen to be cooked more. When the waiter returned about 10 minutes later to the table with my steak, it was over cooked to well done; just ruined my whole experience. I did not bring up my complaint to the waiter because I was more disappointed with the meal then upset about the price I paid.

Really like the food and ambiance however think it’s ridiculous to have to wait 30 minutes past reservation time with the only reply from host letting us know the people at our table had paid but aren’t leaving.

We are raising a grandchild who is always with us for our "dates" so when someone offered to babysit for my birthday weekend we jumped at the chance and wanted to pick somewhere special. Ruth Chris made us feel special / the ambience, the food and especially the service. Had a very sweet server - don't remember her name. My birthday dinner was special. Thanks!

I'm never disappointed with the service or food here. It always exceeds my expectations, though I visit often. It is expensive, but never disappoints. Perfect for a special occasion. It is my go to place for birthdays, anniversaries or just because I want a special dinner.

Had a fantastic birthday dinner. Our server, Kyle, was personable, witty and knowledgeable about everything on the menu and some items not on menu. Highly recommend the seafood tower! The quality was excellent. Steaks and lamb chops were cooked exactly as expected.

We arrived early so were at the bar for sometime and this was the best part of the evening. They had some nice drinks and I loved the Pomegranate martini.

I was not impressed by the dinner as the waiter at our table was not very presentable for a Steakhouse. He even said some the items were not good. I had ordered lamb chops with a lobster tail and I never got my lobster tail. Also the meat I received was very chewy.

Overall, our experience was "fine". We stopped into the bar while waiting for our table. It took 15 minutes for someone to take our drink order. Once seated, we had 2 servers who were acting as a tag team. We had the small seafood tower for an appetizer. It was good. I've had a lot of jumbo shrimp in my life and these were by far the best. About 30 minutes after we finished the tower, our steaks came. They never brought the salad that we ordered. Maybe that's the fault of the tag team format. It was VERY disappointing to have them forget that course, especially in that calibre of restaurant. Regardless, our 11oz filets were extremely tender. Creamed spinach and shoestring fries were delicious. Worth the price? Eh, maybe. Though, I expect better service at a restaurant like that.

We went here for our 20th anniversary. I had noted in my reservation that we were celebrating. We were seated at a table decorated with heart confetti and wished happy anniversary by all of the wait staff and received a happy anniversary dessert. Food was delicious. It's pricey but worth it for something so special. Wait staff was very nice too.

We took our friends to thank them for work they did for us. The steaks were good but the special was horrible. The server highly recommended the veal chop and when it arrived I was embarrassed. It was visibly very fatty and our guest said so as well..bad choice
Otherwise food was good, arrived piping hot and portions large..

As always, Ruth Chris doesn't disappoint. The food, service and atmosphere were perfect. In addition, I told them I was taking out my cousin for her birthday and they decorated the table with cute sparkles for the occasion. Everyone wished her a happy birthday. And included a treat at the end of the meals. They went out of their way to make it a special occasion!

We haven’t been to Ruth Chris in many years. Overall, the dinner experience was outstanding. I had the cowboy ribeye which was cooked to my liking. My wife had the crab cakes and my son had buttered pasta. The service was good and we look forward to returning more often.

The server was inattentive to our table, the food came out cold, the steaks were not prepared to the right temperature, and worst of all, after they comped the desserts, they didn't do anything special for my wife's bday. We sent several of the steaks back and they came out worse the second time!! It was very bad and unlike prior experiences at the restaurant. The manager was nice but I don't think he handled it well. The whole thing was a big enough disaster that he probably should have invited us back for a do-over. I didn't want to make a scene in front of my guests but I am even more upset this morning.

We have chosen Ruth Chris as our anniversary celebration for the past 2 years and they don't disappoint. We had a bit of a challenge in the beginning because they put us right next to the bus station, high traffic area which was a HUGE disappointment when we had clearly indicated what we were looking for when we made the reservation. After a small battle with host staff, we had a wonderful evening. Seafood was very good.. we feel that steakhouses usually have great seafood and we were not disappointed. Cocktails and wine were great and our dessert was wonderful. Note to restaurant: If someone is dropping $200, give them a table where they ask, without attitude!

Had problems with both steaks... had to wait 5 minutes for someone/anyone to come. Ribeye was so tough, server suggested switching to a filet mignon.Even that wasn’t very good. Got to eat cold potatoes with that. Eat here often... not usually a bad experience.

Took mom out for her 88th birthday. Ruth's Chris was always her and our dad's favorite place. Steaks are outstanding and their ensemble meals are a great value. The staff do an excellent job of making sure your water glass is always full and that your food arrives on time, together and hot. I had a 16 oz. ribeye that was done to perfection, along with creamed spinach and a fine Caesar salad. It doesn't get much better than this.

My date ordered a lemon drop martini. When the server poured it she said the color was off and asked my date to see if it tasted right. It didn't do another was served and was very good.
I ordered my filet Pitsberg style. It was cooked perfectly inside but the outside wasn't charred at all. The fillet was very good as always but not served as ordered.
We ordered two sides, dipping sauces and two steaks and everything was very good.

Service was slow and no one came over to take our drink order for a long time.
When we placed our order we asked if there were peppers in Crabcakes .They responded that there were peppers in the crabcakes and that they would make yhem without the peppers ( 2 guests cannot have them.)
When the order came to the table, both orders had peppers in them.
The lobster mac & cheese was not good . Chopped salad was delicious .
The bartender was very good .
Have had a much better dining experience at Morton's .... fresher food ...better menu ... better service.pricier but worth it

We just celebrated my parents' 50th anniversary at Ruth's Chris in Northbrook and we could not have been happier with everything! Their staff went above and beyond to create a wonderful experience for them! Knowing it was for a 50th anniversary, they had decorated the table in advance with tasteful confetti hearts and had given us the best seat in the house in front of their oversize, rustic fireplace. It was beautiful, cozy, and romantic. The servers were incredible and so attentive without ever being intrusive. Two of our kids have food allergies and the staff was great about making sure the kitchen knew and used separate areas to prepare their food to prevent cross-contamination. The food was absolutely delicious and everyone raved about their meal. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening for my parents on their special day. Thank you to Alex and Fernando, our servers, for your exceptional service!

This is a go to place for us on N Shore, so easy decision to book on our 20th anniversary. Greeted warmly, servers knew of special occasion, pace of evening good. Food consistently excellent, steaks cooked as ordered, plenty of options even if not meat lover. Good vibe, fireplace in main dining room, all tables full even on Wed night. Yes, prices are high and everything ala carte, but Ruth Classics are a solid option and we always bring a bottle of wine as corkage fee is fair. Highly recommend.

Returned to celebrate our 68th anniversary and we made the right celebration choice. Food and service were first rate. Beefeater martini perfect. My lamb chops seemed to have too much fat and when I mentioned this to the waiter, the manager provided a sirloin in place. Replacement was only seconds in arriving and was delicious. Platter still bubbling with heat . Wife's lamb chops were excellent and side dishes very enjoyable.

Food and service is always spot on. It was our son's birthday and they went out of their way to make him feel special. Everyone you encounter is extremely nice and professional. Always a great go-to place. Far better than other "high end" steakhouses in the area i.e Morton's, Sullivans or Flemings. Thanks.

This was a birthday celebration. When we walked in, we saw a beautiful set table with birthday characters spread around the table. It was a surprise, it was cute and it brought a smile to my face. Our waiter was Kent. He wished me happy birthday and was a pleasant , humorous and extremely capable waiter. He explained how the food was prepared and asked if we had any food allergies. He cautioned us about the hot plates and told us we would not leave hungry. He was right! The food was absolutely delicious! It was equally good the next day. It was fun sharing too. All in all, it was a wonderful birthday celebration at Ruth Chris.
