Such terrible food. Everything was cold. Steak was cooked wrong. It was not even worth sending back because of how long it took to get out. Everything was cold. Won’t be coming back for a while

I booked a table for two, my daughter’s birthday, folks were yelling, walking through the restaurant asking questions because no one was at the front desk, as our food was being given to us a couple walked up to the waiter who had my daughter’s food in his hand, instead of placing the food before her and then answer the couple, he stops turns towards the couple, who are now over the plate talking, he answers their question and then served my daughter, in regard to the food , the quality was not what I remember, I’ve had lunch and dinner at your restaurant and I must say I was disappointed, even the way folks were dressed was a surprise, flip flops, shorts, jeans, I understand that a lot of restaurants are just getting back into the swing of things, but I’ve always loved the class that was associated with Ruth Chris.

Always a good time at Ruths Chris I have been going there since I was a younger boy with my grandfather and have continued the tradition every once in a while with my fiancé. The food is always great service is exceptional and they are doing a good job managing through this pandemic. If you’re looking for an update tasty dinner for date night I highly recommend it.

Went early on a Friday. Hostess was were pleasant. Table was nice and quiet. Service was adequate but a bit underwhelming. Drinks were great. Wife’s steak was fine but my filet was over cooked and plate was so Hoyt it was burning the butter and continued to overcook my steak. Have been to other Ruth Chris’ and enjoyed so hoping this was just a one off experience.

Sad state of affairs at this Ruth Chris. Servers who need significant more training to be at 5 str luxury restaurant. Had to ask for new silverware, more bread, share plates, share silverware and she was more worried about clearing an empty table that checking on our meals. Busses did a great job for our table Sad to walk out paying over $350 for 3 people and say to yourself “I’m not going back there”. That said the food was really good. So sad Fleming’s closed.

Celebrating my partner’s birthday was everything I expected and more. Our waiter (Tim) was phenomenal. The food was cooked to perfection and the hospitality was exquisite. We highly recommend Ruth Chris - Pier V.

Took 30 minutes for our drinks, took another hour after that for our dinner. Reservations were at 8:30. Our dinner came at 10pm. Very slow service. Food was delicious but took incredibly too long.

The service was great, the server was very friendly and went out of his way to accommodate me and my guest. The food on this night was not the usual standard. The steak that we ordered was over cooked and tough. The broccoli and mashed potatoes was cold. The manager did apologize and provided us with fresh food.

Took my wife out to a nice dinner since she has been working hard in the medical field. The only thing I don’t like is that the dress code isn’t enforced.

Ruth Chris has always been a good eating experience for us. It is a little on the pricey side so we usually reserved this for once a year to celebrate our anniversary. We always look forward to going there.

We have eaten at other locations and had enjoyed our dining experience. This experience was a little underwhelming. The steaks were very undercooked and not up to the quality we would expect. Wow the wait staff was nice they were not attentive.

The tuna was amazing and the steak was very good. I am also a fan of the criminology mushrooms. Honestly, I wanted to order another tuna appetizer. So good.
