Atmosphere was wonderful, service by Scott and his crew was first-rate. Only complaint was the broccoli dish. When my wife said it was too salty; Scott immediately replaced the veg with another choice! We will be back!

Love the layout of this place. The bar is large and in a prominent location without being too dominant. The service was excellent and very friendly. The 11 oz. filet was prepared perfectly as was the grilled salmon. Cream spinach and couscous sides were very good, as well as the butternut squash bisque and Caesar salad. Crab stuffed mushrooms were average at best, as were the martini and old fashioned cocktails. White and red wine suggestions were excellent.

We have been to Ruth's Chris many times over the years and have always had a good meal. This time however, was different. My steak was very undercooked, and my husband's was overcooked. I sent mine back. When I cut into it the 2nd time, I realized how fatty and stringy the meat was (a filet). It also had virtually no flavor. My husband's steak (bone in NY Strip) also had no flavor. The potatoes were cold and the asparagus didn't stay hot long. I typically wouldn't say anything, but the manager stopped by our table and asked, so I told him. He was nice enough to take the steaks and sides off of our bill, which we really appreciated. We're willing to give them another chance - maybe they got in a bad shipment of steaks. Hopefully the next time they've got their game back and their steaks taste as good as they have in the past.

The service was terrible - it took me 30 minutes to get a check. I sat there with uncleared table, my 4 guests left and it still took the waiter 30 minutes to get me checked out. I complained to the Manager and he agreed that the waiter was slow but he didn't really do anything about my issue. Great food - bad service!

An amazing date night!! I would recommend ordering your steak one level less cooked (rare instead of med/rare) as the hot plate continues cooking your steak after it arrives at the table, but the flavor more than made up for that.

My husband and I were celebrating our three year wedding anniversary. Our table was in a great location other than a party of twelve was seated next to us. They were rude, loud and acted as if the entire place was theirs. It was very disrupting to not only us but to the others dining in that room. These people were very obnoxious. The management staff was very aware as they came over to their table a few times to ask them to stop taking so many photos with their flashes on. They were standing up around their table and directly behind my husband almost the entire time taking photos. What we had hoped would be a romantic dining experience turned out the opposite. This was our first time at this location. We always go to the Downtown location.

Our expectations met for high end Steak House for food quality, service, and pricing. The only thing that could have been better was the baked potato. Will celebrate there in the future.

My husband and I were here for our anniversary. We had a wonderful meal, cocktails, dessert, the works. It was fabulous. Our main waiter was wonderful and very informative, and the rest of the service staff were great, too. Is it expensive? Yes, but you absolutely get your money's worth. The food is perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The new 86th St. location is beautiful as well.

First time at this Ruth Chris, welcoming atmosphere. Had reservation so we got to our table as soon as we got there. Service was ok. She could have been a little softer, I felt like she was rushing us. After she saw us talking to the general manager her whole mood changed. Overall I enjoyed the occasion.

This was our first time at the north side location and had a great meal. We went there for two family birthdays. We tried the fried lobster fingers as an appetizer and 2 of the 3 of us really enjoyed them. The third person thought there was too much breading. I had the ribeye which was outstanding and cooked perfectly. My son had the filet and also found it outstanding. My wife had a fish special and also enjoyed it. Overall, it was a great meal and we will definitely return.

Although the food is always to the high standard you would expect from a Ruth's Chris, it is almost prohibitive from family dining pricing. I could take my family to a local owned farm-to-table experience for twice the selection and half the price.
