we made a reservation last minute on open table, snagged a 9 pm table at 8:45 pm. the hostess called me 2 minutes later to tell me that if we weren't there at exactly 9:10 they would not seat us in a very rude tone. We got there 9:05. She was rude upon arrival. I asked if we could have a booth, and she said she would have to ask her manager. the place was empty. the food was ok, there was a hair in our dessert, they brought us a new one and did not charge us. destiny was our server and she was excellent, she saved the night!

We love the food at Ruth's Chris Steak House. The service was great. Joseph did a fantastic job, as did those who helped him. and he really knew his way around the wine list.

We arrived about 5 minutes before our 1600 reservation time and were led to our table by the hostess on time. The table were were led to was at the entry point to a very busy doorway for both the servers and patrons. I asked the hostess if we could have one of the empty wall tables away from the doorway so we didn't have to deal with the heavy foot traffic. She said that those tables were only available by "special" reservation. I reminded her that I did have a reservation but that I wasn't aware that there was "special request" seating available. I asked to speak with a manager and she left to get one. She came back a couple of minutes later (without a manager) and seated our party of four at one of the wall booths. I thanked her and the remainder of the evening was excellent. Just remember that if you want a wall booth - you must ask for it during the reservation process. If OpenTable doesn't have that feature then call the restaurant immediately after you make the reservation on OpenTable/

YUM! How can you go wrong at Ruth's Chris? The only thing I'd like to mention is that everyone ordered surf and turf and my lobster tail was much bigger than everyone elses! Not sure how I got so lucky, but mine was probably a 6-8 oz tail and others were about 4 oz, big difference! We also had crab cakes and cocktails...no complaints, quite yummy! The bill for 5 of us including tip was $600...

Understanding it was New Year's Eve, the restaurant was just not on it's best game that night. The best part of the meal was our server, Jesus, who was absolutely perfect. But the food was subpar and the restaurant was understaffed. Our chopped & tossed wedge salad came out with no dressing on parts of it. One steak had to be sent back for the wrong doneness. We are longtime Ruth's Chris patrons, but have decided we're not coming back. The chain has become too 'formula' and too corporate. The meals no longer feel like they've been especially prepared for you. There are other much better steakhouse choices these days. Ruth's Chris has just lost its standing in our book. We're sorry about it because it was always one of our top choices.

We arrived about half an hour before our reservation and sat at the bar for a cocktail. Service was prompt and attentive drinks were appropriately priced. We proceeded back to the host stand and checked in. Two parties after us, with reservations at the next time slot checked in and were seated before us. Sat at the table for 20 minutes before bread and water arrived, table seated after us received thier appetizers before us. The food: Caesar was well dressed, bread was nothing extraordinary, spicy shrimp was served at room temperature, crab cakes fell apart, filet was properly cooked and amazing flavor, cowboy ribeye had great flavor and again properly cooked, potatos au gratin were undercooked and greasy, creamed spinach lacked flavor, ie salt your sides, creme brulee was one of the shallowest portions I've seen, cheesecake was outstanding. For nearly $400, I would recommend mastros, Houston, arroyo chop or even driving to a casino and partaking in one of those steakhouses.

Service was very slow and we had some issues with how the steaks were cooked. Our Ribeye seemed very tuff and was not what we have come to expect from Ruth's Chris. Our first sub par experience from this fine chain.

My wife & I have been coming to this Ruth's Chris location to celebrate our anniversary for over 15 years. Everything about our experiences here have been excellent. The service, valet, bar, management, table setting & food have all been top notch. Of course we have food preferences but nothing has ever disappointed us. We've been to other restaurants in this category but they don't match up in overall experience. We even went to a nationally recognized steakhouse that couldn't beat our experience here, aside from seeing celebrities and a higher bill, that is. Especially the ambiance and special care can't be beat for us. We will continue to enjoy our special occasion celebrations here!

It was my wife's actual day of her birthday. I let the restaurant know ahead of time. However, the restaurant did not do anything to special. Table next to us got custom menus, champagne, and desert. It made my wife sad that it looked like I forgot to make it a celebration.

Celebrated a birthday. The food and service was outstanding. Valet parking is $10, which I think is steep. I took the option to add the valet charge to my bill, and they added $12, not $10. I decided to not make an issue of that but beware if you valet park.
