Thankgiving Dinner bust...

Thank you Ricky for great service. He was very personable and the best thing about our visit. Ultimately we left with only one suitable steak and bottle of wine.

The culprit.... the kitchen. Our experience was shockingly bad....My husband and I wanted jumbo lump crab on top of our steaks and offered to pay handsomely for it, however we were told we could only get a planko filled crab cake because the chef only puts lump crab meat on the chilled seafood platter. We then still decided to continue with our order. It took over an hour for the spicy shrimp appetizer we ordered, coming almost 10 minutes after the main course steaks came. The steaks were over cooked and tough. It was like sawing through dry roast. Two of the steaks were sent back to be remade and told they would put a rush on it. 30 minutes later, still no steaks. Overall the food we did recieve was visually nice, but was not really flavorable. The chopped salad (pictured) is filled with iceberg lettuce. Iceberg? A prime example of visually appealling, yet flavorless.

Paid for the bottle of wine and one suitable steak and left.

I would recommend training or restructure to the kitchen staff and/or chef. Unfortunately, without seriously considering this change, you will continue to receive negative reviews and lack patronage of loyal customers.

What a great experience! We ate the side of the restaurant on Euclid. Oscar made sure we were nice and cozy with the outside warmers. Kris our server was excellent. She had perfect timing, was personal and professional and made sure we had a great time celebrating our daughter's birthday. We weren't sure about outside dining but I would highly recommend it, especially at Ruth's Chris.

The food was good. However, my daughter’s steak was rare (ordered medium). They offered to remake it, which they did, a good 20 min later, when we were done eating. They comped it, which was nice.

I can't wait to dine inside, but I think that they did a great job with an outdoor setup. I was happy to see the seafood tower back on the menu, but some of the crab legs were still frozen inside, and when you are eating outside in the cold, it can kill your appetite. I feel terrible that the waiters have to walk further to help us, and they don't come by as frequently, but overall I was glad to enjoy a great meal and celebrate my spouses' birthday.

This was my second time dining with Ruth’s Chris since outside dining was made available, due to the 2020 pandemic. It was very enjoyable. Glad the reservation was after dark because it was still in the high 80’s after 8:00 pm. Jeremy was our server and he was very polite, efficient, and helpful. The food was great, as usual. My party and I ordered 3 steaks, and they were all cooked to our preference. We had 2 of their alcoholic mules, and I think it’s one of the best mules I have tasted in a while. The ambiance was great, with the lights and moonlight. There is minimal seating. So I was suggest making a reservation in advance! You won’t be sorry.

Great experience in this time of Covid. We sat outside on the sidewalk area; they have the whole area separated off and spaced out from other tables perfectly. Food was great as always. We really enjoyed the night ; dinner out.

They have down-sized the menu tremendously. The prices haven't changed but a lot of other things have. The streets are very noisy. The street light over the table buzzes continually. The level of service has really had a turn for the worst. Spending $500 on a meal you expect elite service. Most restaurants provide exceptional service in that price range. Very casual host, server, and server help staff. Responds like "okay" and "yeah". Don't clear the tables often. On a chilly evening, most high-end outdoor seating provides heaters. Don't expect that here. Don't get me wrong I don't mind a casual fun atmosphere but not when you went for a special event and have always received fine dining in the past. The employee even dress in t-shirts now. I would expect with this much change the prices should reflect.
