 (Baltimore)·Dined 2 days ago

This is one of my favorite restaurants and the first time I absolutely hated the food. I get the stuffed chicken all the time this,time it was not seasoned and when I told the waitress she took it back and brought the same chicken with a little bit of season on it. it was horrible I probably won't be back anytime soon and I've been there 3 times in the pass month.

Valet was pleasant opening and closing our doors for us. We were seated immediately and our server was very friendly. I visited the pikesville location and just had a better experience as far as the food was concerned. My Chesapeake style entree complement was extra dry and my asparagus looked a little burnt. It was impeccable at the pikeville location. Sweet potato casserole was pretty good and my steak was cooked to my liking. Overall the experience was decent though I wish ALL of the food would’ve been just as good this time. Also very disappointed the apple crumb cheesecake isn’t offered on the dessert menu!!

Ruth Chris will be my favorite restaurant for now on, the drinks were incredible, I had pomagrante margaritas, thumbs up to the bartender, and the food was delish, I had the salmon , creamed spinach , and mashed potatoes. My daughter had the steak and scalloped potatoes, which was also delish. My friend also had salmon. I will definitely dine there again and very soon.

I love everything. I love my food. And I'm not really into trying new food. I like going to the same places all the time. I going to go back.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on January 16, 2018

As always, the food was excellent. Steak was tender and cooked exactly the way I requested. Asparagus nicely grilled. Blue cheese dressing on salad was especially good. But star of meal was the Lemon Cake Martini for desert. It packed a wallop but was just delicious. The only complaint that I have is that we made it clear we were there for Restaurant Week menu and server tried repeatedly to have us upgrade to regular menu and larger, more expensive cuts of meal.

The food was good and I liked the service staff, service was a bit slow and they forgot a few things that we had ordered. Water wasn't refilled often enough, which was needed because the temperature in the restaurant was very warm. But overall still enjoyable and would eat here again.

I made a reservation for your restaurant well before New Year’s Eve. We were a party of 4 and were entertaining my son’s girlfriend from out-of-town. We were seated in an overflow Banquet room right next to the kitchen door. There were 2 large tables in the room and they both had numerous children. We were looking for ambiance but instead felt like we were at Chuck-E-Cheese. I was embarrassed but did not want to ask to be moved because I didn’t want to make my son or his girlfriend uncomfortable. I think that the manager must have felt bad for us because he offered us oven mitts (??) and discount coupons for our next visit. No thank you.

I was really disappointed and to seal the deal, my credit card was misplaced in your restaurant.

As always, a great place to have dinner. We were seated in an overflow area of the hotel, but that was fine, because our table was going to be noisy and we really didn’t want to bother any other diners!

Overall our experience was good. We took our family out for a nice dinner to celebrate the holidays. One of my kids had never been to Ruth's Chris. we were really disappointed when after making a reservation, we were taken to what seemed to be an "overflow" room. Very bland, 2 small, very cheap Christmas trees, no artwork on the walls, etc.... I think part of the experience at Ruth's Chris is the atmosphere. And we had none of that. Our food was excellent as was our wait staff, but again we were really disappointed to be seated away from the main dining room. We spent over $400 for a family of four and left disappointed. We won't be coming back to this steak house any time soon.

Great food as always. Mushroom appetizer is just ok - only 4 come in the order. We got that instead of salad, but I would have been happier with their classic Caesar salad instead. Do get the raspberry rosemary cosmo. So incredible!

My family's tradition is to go someplace fancy on Christmas Eve for dinner. Ruth's Chris is on of our favorite spots! This year we had the towering seafood appetizer and it did not disappoint, everything tasted like it was caught that day! If course, the steaks were outstanding, so tender we literally cut them with our forks. The sides are served family style and were quite varied so everyone had items they loved (the potatoes au gratin and roasted brussel sprouts were a favorite). Finally, the service was outstanding, we always had a full drink or anything else we wanted.

The food is overpriced. The wait staff was slow in removing used plates and flatware. The decor was too stuffy making it hard to relax. The steak was good but not amazing. I have had better steak at more reasonable prices. Not a bad restaurant but would not recommend to anyone.

The food was phenomenal. The service was excellent. My only complaint is on the restaurant’s policy to not split checks. I am
Not sure if this is just during the Holidays or all of the time but with today’s technology I don’t understand why it would be difficult to track purchases by guests/couples. It makes it uncomfortable on guests to figure out how much someone owes. Especially when one drinks wine, has dessert, etc and the other couple does not. I doubt I will
Return unless it is just for the 2 of us.

We went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for Thanksgiving dinner. It is in an attractive location at Baltimore's Inner Harbor. We were greeted warmly and the service was quite friendly. The food was not so good. One of us ordered the Thanksgiving Prix Fixe, the other two split a Porterhouse for Two. Neither were very good.
