Steaks were great. Desserts were terrible. Cherry cobbler and bread pudding very bad.

When you decide to go to a fine dining steakhouse, what you don't expect is for your steak to be overcooked. The service was exceptional.

We were early for our reservation, so we sat at the bar for a cocktail and the bar staff were great. The bartender created a special request drink for one of our friends who was with us.
Once seated at our table, our staff and food were fabulous. We will definitely return!

We really enjoy the food but, even for a very good restaurant, the price is a bit too high compared to others. Including tip, our dinner was $197 for 2 people.

I am a big fan of Ruth's Chris and have dined at a number of different locations. I have always been very pleased with the food and the service. This visit was no exception. However, my filet mignon was not quite up to the same level of quality as I have experienced in the past --- I'm not sure why but the meat was not as tender and succulent as it has almost always been in the past. Other members of my party had made the same comment. I'm hoping / expecting that this was just one of the nights and our next visit more satisfying

We went in for a nice business meal and met some locals in the bar area. The night turned out great although our group might have gotten a bit loud. The management was very understanding and made sure we had a ball!
This is one of my favorite Ruth’s!

Filet Mignon quality was not what we were expecting. It has been much better in the past. Way too much sodium in everything. Service was great and very friendly. Noise level was too high. Overall, a 6.5 rating out of 10.

So for the food is so so. The calamari was not great at all, all breading and covered in their sauce. My lamb chops were chewy, and the brussel sprouts tasted like bacon grease. My boyfriend said his steak was really good but the lobster was nothing to brag about. Our drinks took forever, and I ordered a glass of wine for dinner and I did not get till after my dinner
I will not be back!

I had lunch today with a business associate. I have had both lunch and dinner at this location dozens of times over the years.

Today was disappointing, my filet was cooked perfectly, 75% of the steak was what I expect for prime filet, very delicious.

25% of the steak was not edible due to fibrous meat and gristle on one end.

This should never occur at a high end prime cut steakhouse!

Disappointed.

Steaks were cooked to perfection, the side dishes were great but cooled off rather quickly. It would be a better experience if the side dishes could some how be kept warmer over the course of` the meal. Deserts were exceptional. The service was outstanding we had a enjoyable experience

Very pleasant evening of great food and great service. After a very busy week, I am ready to unwind and be pampered. Ruth’s Chris creates that perfect environment. Their service is purposeful and not hovering. When that service is combined with great food, it is a recipe for perfection!

Our calamari was over cooked. The 6 oz filet did not seem up to standards with the regular 8 oz filets that I normally get at Ruth’s Chris. I did not care for the shrimp being served on the same dish as my filet. The creamed spinach was excellent as usual. Overall, I was disappointed in the filet and the price I paid. The restaurant didn’t do anything special for Mother’s Day.

Ruth Chris is our favorite restaurant, if you haven’t been you’re really missing out on something special. The downtown Pittsburgh restaurant is newly remodeled and it really looks great. The service is fantastic, ask for Melissa she’s one of the best there. Start off with the spicy fried lobster as an appetizer. The steaks are unbelievable. They come to your table literally sizzling. If you’re a seafood person the lobster tail is the best I ever had, and it’s huge. The sweet potato casserole, broccoli & au-gratin potatoes are to die for, and please don’t get me started on the lobster mac & cheese (UNBELIEVABLE!) if you like a cocktail with your meal the bar has everything and the drinks are fantastic.
Gotta tell you it can be a little pricey but it’s an dining experience worth every penny.
