Great experience! Amazing food, fantastic server! Attention to detail in every aspect. Ate in private dining room, and it was perfect and quiet with soft ambience of music and lighting! Will visit again!

Food was ok, but not spectacular. Cost for 5 people was 328.00. We all drank water. No salads, no desert.

This was not the best service we have had, it was just ok. I had two empty glasses and would have liked more to drink. I also had dirty dishes. Would have thought a high class restaurant would remove dirty plates. We had to ask a server for our bill. Seem like our waiter disappeared.

I came for the Thanksgiving special. The reason I chose Ruth’s Chris over others was because the menu online indicated options for sides and deserts. When we arrived the Thanksgiving menu we were handed listed specified sides and the server Informed us no substitutions were allowed. I ended up just skipping the sides and desert since what they offered was not what I wanted.

Our server was very slow. We had to ask for water, bread, more bar drinks, etc. It’s not the experience we have had at Ruth’s Chris in the past.

Terrific experience once again!
DuPre has consistently delivered A+ service, which is made even better with his dynamic smile and upbeat attitude.
Food was great, as usual... salmon, shrimp and chicken breast on this visit... no steak !

Dined here for husbands 60th birthday. Just the two of us for cocktails and a steak dinner. Seated early in nice booth. Waiter was ok but seemed busy and not genuinely interested in our dining experience. Also started out ordering 2 Amaretto Sours and waiter came back to say they were out. How are you out of cocktails? Strange for a place of this caliber. Salads, side and entrees were ok but not amazing. Steak not butterflied as requested. The evening was ok but just not what we used to experience. Maybe wait staff or maybe jus let a compilation of several things. I doubt we will go back for awhile as I believe there are other options at this price point that may offer a better experience and food and have the basic cocktails requested.

There are two Ruth's Chris Steak Houses in Indianapolis, and they are the two best steakhouses I know of. That includes St. Elmo's, Morton's, JW (in London), Shula's, and a number of other fairly famous places in Miami, San Jose, San Francisco, and elsewhere. (I like steak, particularly a good filet.) Curiously, the two Ruth's Chrises in Indianapolis are also dramatically better than Ruth's Chrises I've tried in several other cities. I used to slightly prefer the downtown Ruth's Chris, for ambiance, but the Northside Ruth's Chris moved a few years back and I might slightly prefer it now. But either of them will give you the best filet mignon you'll ever taste. The service is also stellar. Side dishes like the potatoes au gratin and sautéed spinach (the menu only offers creamed spinach, but if you just ask they'll do up a much nicer sauté) are great. Good drinks, wine, espresso, desserts. It's basically a perfect meal. This is our go-to place for anniversaries, quiet birthdays, and just to have a great steak dinner. Enjoy!

Wonderful restaurant and great service. Mary Ann was fantastic as a server. Food was ok but.. steak was sent back for being undercooked and came back undercooked. Ate it anyway. The 500 degree plate helped brown the meat after cutting it up in several pieces. Never had this issue at this Ruth’s Chris before. Will still go back. Chalking it up as a tough night in the kitchen.

Great food, service, and environment as always. The sole downside - having to wait 25 minutes for a table despite our reservation. No big deal. We will be back soon.

We had to send back our cocktail order which was a martini twice and they still didn’t get it right. Two of our three sides of french fries and lobster mac & cheese were not warm at all. Our waiter was not the typical Ruth Chris service we expect. We sat in the bar area which we requested and it was noisy but we expected that. Extremely disappointed as a frequent customer.

Harvest salad was delicious. Petite filet was very juicy and cooked to my liking. I would highly recommend.

We had a duel celebration: closing on our newly built home & my birthday. I had a taste for a good steak & we had some gift cards to use, so this was a perfect choice.

I can honestly say that our meal was the best meal I have eaten in a very long time. We eat out at upscale restaurants in Indy & other larger cities fairly often, so my statement about the best meal is not insignificant. My filet was perfectly cooked & our salads & sides excellent. The service & ambience were impeccable. I recognize that we were dining on a weeknight with relatively few other diners, so that might have had an impact on our experience.

All in all, while Ruth’s Chris is expensive, in our experience ‘you get what you pay for!’

My husband had steak, which was great! Just a tad too much salt but delicious. I had crab cakes which were great as well. Would love it it’d they were built with more lump then shredded crab. The service was outstanding!!

Honestly might have been the best dinner I've ever eaten! The unique signature cuts of steak are something else. Yes, the prices are high, but you get what you pay for. Service is fantastic, food is out of this world!

We didn’t know what to expect for our two year anniversary dinner. Ruth’s Chris popped up as a romantic place to go and it was everything we wanted! The food was the best food we’d ever had and the staff was just wonderful. The meal was expensive but we knew it was worth every penny due to the wonderful service, atmosphere, and of course the steaks! We continue to rave about how marvelous our dinner was and we will for sure be back.

The service was amazing!! We were celebrating my husbands birthday. I pre-ordered the drinks and the meal earlier in the day and Dupree and his team were amazing. He followed everything I had requested so we never had to get menus. We were there more than 2 hours and we enjoyed every moment. Thank you for making our evening so very special.

Took over 45 minutes for entree. Steak was not done to our request. So disappointed in Ruth Chris. We come time or t better. Good was mediocre and the delay didn’t help. Waitress was outstanding but for a $400 evening we were beyond disappointed.
