Seated 25 min after reservation
Was informed after waiting 20 min at the table, our server had too many tables, and was behind, but we could place a drink order
Another 20 min for drinks to come
He informed us he would be able to put in app order. We asked if we could just order, he did allow us. Very bizarre service, which I can say I’ve never experienced. Ruth Chris you can do better!

Last night was my husband and I’s first time eating here and it did not disappoint. Our server Dan was amazing and the food was the best meat I have ever eaten!! Any other restaurant is going to disappoint us now

Everything was great, except we were met with the news that the fryer wasn’t working. That eliminated items we were interested in.

Just exactly what you'd expect from RC. Great veal osso bucco ravioli app and my NY Strip was excellent and was just on the rare side of medium rare, which was perfect. Service was attentive without being over-bearing. Pacing was just right. My wife's steak was excellent as well, as was her wedge salad and the creamed spinach. We even got a free mini dessert as we were celebrating her promotion.

RC isn't cheap but the food at this location has always been excellent. And the dining room and music were just the right level of quiet. A very civilized dining experience.

Usually Ruth's Chris is outstanding. Our visit on Friday night was far from it. Our server was friendly enough, however... The crab cakes appetizer was "fishy" and not enjoyable. We left most of it. The potatoes in the potatoes au gratin were undercooked and crunchy! We told our server and he asked if we'd like something else - we ordered mashed potatoes instead. We were charged for the inedible potatoes au gratin even though we ended up with regular mashed potatoes (a cheaper option.) With the pandemic affecting the business of our restaurants, you'd think that the customers they do have would be treated to the best possible experience - ours, sadly, was not.

The food is always outstanding at Ruth’s Chris but the service is what knocks it out of the park. Terry is by far one of the best servers I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Friendly, attentive, engaging and funny, my husband and I will definitely be requesting him from now on.

Great food, service and atmosphere. The crab tower appetizer is wonderful.

My husband's steak was sizzling and perfect. The sweet potato is a side and a dessert at the same time...so delicious.

We go to the restaurant every other week and the foid and service are always outstanding.

The food was exceptionally delicious! We had a reservation at 9pm and it took our party of 4 a little over an hr for our salads to arrive at our table and then 1 hour and 45 mins before our main course landed at our table. The guests arriving after us completed their meals and paid before we even had our dinner. I finally mentioned the amount of time we had been waiting to our server and he was apologetic and very kind. A little more communication would have been nice. It was New Year’s Eve during covid restrictions so we get things may be chaotic but almost 2 hrs before our main course arrived at our table seemed a little outrageous.

Our service was awful. Slowest I’ve ever had. Charged us for 2 drinks we didn’t order and a drink he spilled on someone. Didn’t even apologize for how slow he was..... we paid the incorrect bill for fear that it might take another 30-40 minutes for him to come back and we would miss our uber home.

Food was consistent and good as expected from Ruth Chris. Service was laughable. It was after the holiday so maybe some burnout...but still you go to a nice place and expect nice service.

Our special occasion was to take some time alone together without our girls. We chose an early dinner to savor the time. We arrived early and were seated promptly, our waiter Niles was one of the the best and engaging waiters we have had in our many years of fine dinning, from suggesting appetizers to giving us all the time our 2 1/2 hour experience. The food was great of course but it was Niles that made the evening. Thanks Niles!!!

We enjoyed our dinner and our server was wonderful. The only thing we did not enjoy was the lobster bisque. It was just not good. It was very thin and lacked flavor - disappointing at an establishment like yours.
