We went to Ruths Chris for our Anniversary dinner. We generally go there for special occasions and can think of only one time when we had a less than stellar experience. This time was as usual, a great meal in a great atmosphere, with great service. We don't think you can go wrong at Ruths Chris Northside Indy.

Overall great experience. The only negative was while we were still finishing our appetizers, a “runner “ showed up with our salads. I always wonder how a high end restaurant cant time out letting their diners finish one course before showing up with the next one. I watch other diners become part of the waitstaff, moving aside their dishes so as not to “inconvenience “ the person attempting to deliver the “next course”! I’m probably too old fashioned and was raised working in high end establishments in NYC. My maître d would have fired me it I ever did that!! Anyway, great food and overall good experience. I’d fault the guy walking around in the suit asking if everything was OK. He should spend his time managing the front of house better!

We were greeted courteously. Phil, our server, did a great job. It might be a good idea to make sure the servers know that rose petals on the table signifies anniversaries so they don't have to ask if you're celebrating something. I heard other servers also ask when there were petals on the table. This was our 3rd experience and we'll definitely be back.

We were seated at the exact same table that we sat at last year on Christmas day! A coincidence? I don't think so. A wonderful dinner from the specials. I had filet and lobster and my husband had filet Oscar (crab and bernaise sauce on the top). YUMMY. Ruth's Chris never fails to present a wonderful meal and gives you time and doesn't shove things in your face. And our server, Nick, was just wonderful!

There are multiple steakhouse choices at the Ruth's Chris price point so one would anticipate only 4 and mostly 5 star ratings after dining here. There are 7 higher quality upper end restaurants that would not bring your entrée to the table while over half of your first course is still being consumed nor would they botch a temperature request on a $44 steak that was in and of itself, a lesser grade of meat. The other steak would have been perfect but, remember, it needed to sun itself under the heat lamp before being brought back to the table. Go to any of the other seven and you will get professional service, value for the money spent and a well rounded and fully enjoyable evening.

High quality, attentive and respectful staff plus very quiet ambience. We ordered high end food and wine and the two of us spent over $300 for a nice dinner. Know what to expect at Ruth’s Chris - a great experience for a lot of money. We’ve been there before and will return. We like it!

My steak was perfect; my wife's hash browns were burned around the edges, but otherwise good enough. Service (Chris) was impeccable and unobtrusive. We usually get one of the large booths so we can sit side by side, particularly on our anniversary. Although we requested it in the reservation, we got a cramped mini-booth instead. We thought they wanted to hold the big ones for larger parties, given Covid restrictions, but alas, all evening, only other couples were seated in our booth. Nonetheless, give it a try if you like excellent steaks.

Regular diners and never disappointed. First time back during the covid and as lovely as before. Weird not seeing any barstools at the bar during Indy covid regulations. We both used the special prix fixe offering for three course meal. Limited selection but really, the main reason we go is for the steak and mashed potatoes so no worries there;) Also had the lobster bisque which was also delicious. The wine list is expansive so something to please anyone and all bar selections are also great. Felt safe during the covid with all staff masked and tables staggered appropriately.
