The food was good as always but the service was slow. We were 45 minutes between salad and entree. The break to dessert was also long. The room was generally quiet but the busboys put their dish-collection tray right beside our table several times to clear the tables of 14 and 5 near us. There were lots of places they could have put it but they liked that spot so there was a constant clatter of dirty dishes while they tidied up other tables. Overall not bad because the food was good but not worth the cost, given the delays and the noise.

Lovely atmosphere and good service. Filet was SUPERB and cooked perfectly. Mushroom appetizer was very good as well. Side dishes had room for improvement. The Brussel sprouts lacked flavor and were too crunchy and the creamed spinach was luke warm and lacked the little cayenne punch it use to have. Bread pudding was hot and wonderful. I think I actually prefer Fleming's to Ruth's Chris only because the bread and side dishes are consistently excellent. On the fence on whether I will return. Probably would if I knew the sides would at least be hot.

The food was very good (surf and turf, filet). The drinks were well made (old fashion and a gin special). Service was excellent. Everything was very good but i still think it's a bit overpriced.

I always enjoy going to Ruth's Chris. The first time I tried their food was in New Orleans. The steaks are tender and the seafood is delicious. My friend took my friend and me out for our birthdays. The three of us had a great dinner.

We only go about once or twice a year for a special family get together/reunion celebration. We love a good steak although we don't eat them often. In the past, our steaks have always been top notch. We typically get rib eyes. The side dishes are excellent, the service makes one feel quite special. The noise level is quiet enough that we can easily talk and visit. This most recent visit, we all, once again, got rib eyes but for the first time we were all disappointed. The cut had a lot of difficult to chew fat marble running through all five steaks. It is the first time out of a half dozen visits that has every happened.

Food as always was great. On reservation asked for quiet booth for 2. Instead was seated in the bar area. Very very very noisy. We could hardly hear each other. Very disappointing considering this price point.

We have been coming for RC for quite a few years, and usually love the food and the place. Our last visit was on 12/31/2017, and was very disappointing. Not sure if they changed the chef, or what the reason is, but the food was not up to their usual standard. The meat was tasteless, and of very cheap quality. For the amount of money we paid, it was a shame!

Ruth's Chris Northbrook was FANTASTIC! The service (Kent) was far and above outstanding. The bus boy (Evan) far and above outstanding!

The valet was far and above outstanding and the food was far and above outstanding.

It was great and was what I had come to expect from Ruth's Chris and brought back and far exceeded my expectations which had been totally debunked based on my latest visit to Ruth's Chris in Aruba.

Never disappointed at Ruth Chris, their food is outstanding. They are expensive, especially the drinks, but the food makes up for it. Went on New Year's Eve and had their classic special; Caesar salad, ribeye and apple cheesecake just wonderful. Their crab stuffed mushrooms and the mushroom couscous were exceptional. Our waiter was Kyle and he did a wonderful job taking care of us.

Normally love experience at Ruth's Chris, but Christmas Eve was not the typical level of service we are accustomed to. Too many diners near entry waiting to be seated, the waiter who took our order was brisk and unfriendly. Too many people, the atmosphere was not cordial, although food was delicious, we will not return for a special holiday.

We had a family dinner for Christmas Eve. They first sat us next to the kitchen (I had made the reservation about 6 weeks before). They declined to give us one of the empty 6-tops nearby and made us wait about 20 minutes for a different table. Our second table was so close to another that the servers couldn't get through.
The service was OK, the food was good, ambiance is basic corporate dining room, and the total experience is nowhere near what one would expect for the price tag. And the amount they ran on the card was $30 more than our check (they did fix that and bought one dessert).

Have eaten at this location several times. Service was just average, steaks seemed not as tasty or tender as before. In defense I didn't mention it to the server. Lobster special with steak was very good for the value. Desserts were average. I just compared it to other times when we have eaten there.
