We went at 12 noon and sat in the Maryland room. We were the 3rd table to be seated but room was filled when we left about 1:45. Noise level increased as room filled- probably try to get main dining room if we go next year for thanksgiving. Food and service was great. Temperature of room could have been warmer.

I'm not often pleasantly surprised when dining but the experience celebrating a 35th wedding anniversary dinner last evening was top shelf!! The staff at Ruth's Chris in Pikesville made our evening special from arrival to departure. The Champagne toast, rose petals, kinds Anniversary wishes, playing our wedding song via cell phone, and sharing a specially designed 35th Anniversary Cheesecake made for a perfect experience. The meal selections and wines were superb and so grateful for a truly memorable evening! Ask for Dana as he was so personable!!

What a disappointment! Food was okay, service was good but the whole experience was underwhelming. Ambiance was horrible- tables around us were distracting, not a 5 star dining experience at all. Spent close to $1000 and won’t be back.

Everyone's food (party of 4) was excellent! So was our waiter - spot on with knowledge, timing, personable AND sounded just like Morgan Freeman. We could actually hold a conversation without shouting or repeating ourselves. Will positively be back.

I order a medium steak and it was well done I sent it back and got a rare steak! So I just took it home! I never got any bread on my table. It was my birthday and I chose to spend it at Ruth Chris and was really disappointed! If anyone asks me my experience I will tell them and I will also tell them to go for themselves.

First time being at this location and it was nice! Our server was on her Ps and Qs. Our food came fast, fresh and hot. The energy in the restaurant was romantic. We decided to do a date night and was surprised with real rose petals on the table. VERY ROMANTIC.

Meeting up with friends-sat inside in an offset, more private area but still smelled cigar/cigarette smoke from outside. Steak was perfectly prepared, wine paring was awesome!

Stuffed Chicken Didn’t Have Much Filling Inside Which Caused It To Be Dry. Lobster Tails Were Very Very Overcooked & Small

It is heaven in your mouth and absolutely worth the price. The service is undeniably outstanding. They make sure your evening feels special and catered to. They make you feel
Like your the only table in the restaurant and pace your meal perfectly. The only negative is the heart attack you get when you see your credit card bill afterwords.

Great food, But the service got very slow, took a very long time to get a 2nd round of drinks, Our desserts came out before drinks did. Overall 4 out of 5 stars, only down fall was the regression of service.

The quiet atmosphere was as expected from Ruth Chris. What disappointed me were the items that were not available on the menu. I've never visited a Ruth Cheis where this has occurred. My alternate meal was okay. Service was just okay. Our waiter Trent could have been a little more attentive. We had to ask another server to request him to come to the table.

My $16 mixed drink didn't have the garnishes advertised (orange & rosemary sprig)

The bread basket consisted of 2 rolls that had been sliced (expected better bread options and more of it)

The salad croutons were the size of panko breadcrumbs. Is Ruth's having trouble getting bread? This seems to be a recurring theme.

The balsamic GLAZE advertised with the heirloom salad was actually a balsamic vinaigrette --BIG difference in quality and taste.

The entrees and sides were wonderful. J

Overall I expected much more from a restaurant of this caliber. It's the little details that people will remember and cause them to return...or not.

Very good experience and dinner at this location. Waiter was outstanding and food was excellent. Only knocked one star off because there was a table near us that decided to have a conversation on their phone with the speaker on and they were loud. The staff did eventually ask that person to please not use their speaker. Other than that everything was wonderful.

Food was cold and had to be returned, twice in one case. General Manager was not customer oriented. Delivered food to the table and didn't introduce himself. My worst experience at that location considering the prices charged. Food quality at this Ruth Chris has drastically decreased.

I took my cousin out for his birthday and even provided this information through the reservation. My cousin never got his birthday desert. When I brought it up to the server, he stated he didn’t think we wanted that.

Have enjoyed meals at many Ruth’s Chris over many years at many different locations from Maryland to Florida. Pikesville MD location was in fact my first experience some 15 years ago. Most recently (Oct 6th)we had a superior visit at the Berlin location. The experience was at it should be from start to finish...what we come to expect from RC. High standards with no excuses.
Last evenings meal at Pikesville by comparison was an embarrassment to the franchise. Steak over cooked, portion sizes was not to spec, salads were significantly over dressed, food delivered to wrong guest, first round of cocktails took 15 min to deliver and second round not right. (When I inquired, server disclosed that they substituted brands). Service was uneven. Restrooms not maintained to a respectable standard. Dress code?
Plenty of staff circulating about....do not feel that this was COVID consequential. This looks to be a pervasive lack of training and accountability.
Very disappointing to say the least. I respectfully, suggest that the franchisor take a hard look at this location.
