Great service and wonderful food. One of the best experiences we have ever had. Jay, our waiter and his assistant were most engaging and knowledgeable. The manager, Julio, came to our table to check on our meal - we told him how pleased we were.

The food was excellent but they refused to honor our $25 discount card because we both had prix fixe dinners. They had previously honored identical cards in the identical situation. Disappointing.

Although my steak was not prepared to order, they eventually took care of it. It tasted delicious. It did however take quite awhile to get my steak back and my husband had already finished his meal. But they made things right.

Our server was great, but the food was just ok. Beware that the pictures of menu items on their website are NOT what you will receive. The pictures are from 2016, so those need to be updated to prevent disappointment from your diners. We both ordered from the 3-course Pre-Fixe menu. Salads were great (hard to mess up a salad), the sides were awesome (mashed potatoes and creamed spinach), but the entrees were not as expected. Hubby ordered the 16 oz. ribeye medium. It came out rare...he ate it, but I could not have. He said it lacked flavor and was a little tough. Plus, it looked more like a NY strip...no "eye" with tender meat and fat for flavor around it. I had ordered the crab cakes because of the pictures online. Whoa! Nothing like those pics! I was expecting big chunks of lump crab meat with a little filler to hold them together (like our server explained). These were small and had the consistency of a salmon patty...very mushy with maybe a couple of large flakes of crab. The flavor was ok, but I will not order them again. Pre-Fixe dessert was sad, and we didn't have a choice. Not the best way to spend our anniversary. We will try again and learn what not to order.

My dad and I requested a table in the bar, because of the lively atmosphere (as compared to sitting in the dining room). Our booth was large and accommodating, but interaction with the girl that removes the extra settings was a bit awkward as she told us to scoot down and use the place settings by the wall because she can't reach them. Then she took away the place setting that were right in front of us. We stayed where we were and just moved the other settings. Weird. Anywho, Seth was our server and he was on point. He was friendly and knowledgeable and we enjoyed our interaction with him. We ordered several appetizers as our dinner: the seafood tower, lobster voodoo, ahi tuna, calamari and soup/salad. The ahi tuna was absolutely incredible. The lobster voodoo needed to be cooked longer. We have had it before and it has been excellent, but this time it was right on the verge of not being cooked and we did not like the texture or taste. Very happy to see that you carry Angel's Envy RYE - it is difficult to find in these parts. And the RoundPond cabernet Kilth & Kin is worth every penny. Great wine. Thank you for an enjoyable evening!

Great ambiance. Delicious filet cooked perfectly and served on hot plate with sizzling butter. My favorite filet of all the upscale steakhouses. Nice ambiance. The quiet, high-back booths in the main dining room are cozy and can be romantic.

We have always had great food at this Ruth's Chris. This time we were disappointed. Our salad orders came out wrong--we didn't mention it to waitress but then my husbands steak was burned up and they had to re cook it. Also it seems when I book a reservation on open table we get the worst table in the restaurant. This night we had noted we were on a special date. They sat us in the middle of the room alone assuring us it would fill up soon. Fill up it did with small children on either side of us. What was supposed to be a special evening ended up being a 'show' as the table next to us were celebrating and had small children and it was quite distracting. For what it costs to eat here really just expected more. Will not dine here next time, many other choices in Indianapolis.

Excellent food and atmosphere! Only thing I would change - booth was comfortable, but strange rectangular shape made conversation a little difficult. Sitting 2 on one side and 2 on the other would have been preferable. But food was to die for!

My fillet was burnt. The waiter said “happy Anniversary “ to us every time he came to the table, Luke he didn’t remember he had already said it. I would have loved a second glass of wine but the waiter never came back to our table after our food was delivered so I never got an opportunity to ask for one or show him how “crispy “ the fillet was. The kitchen should have never sent it out. The past 3 times we have gone to Ruth Chris, it has not been worth the price. Won’t be going back unfortunately

Sat in bar booth Fri night ; server was DuPree and as previously, he delivered amazing and fun evening.
Food was delicious and served very quickly and accurately, which has not been the case with others.
He is upbeat, knowledgeable and humorous.

Fun time. Can’t wait to go back.

we were placed in the "Boardroom"?? not per our request, but it was very good for our group to have easy conversations (not quiet room sectioned off from the other dining areas), but we were interrupted several times by other severs coming in to get bottles of wine that were stored in the room, plus it seemed our waiter would be gone for extended period of time. Overall our service was very, very good but not excellent. The room was fine, but that wasn't noted to me ahead of time, not sure I would do that again.

We celebrated our 51st anniversary with our children during “Devour Indy”. It was very special. Rose petals were scattered on the table, and we were gifted a beautiful complimentary dessert of chocolate mousse. The meal was delicious and the service excellent. Thank you for a lovely experience!
