We used to frequent Ruth Chris quite regularly but this is our first visit in a few years. The food and drinks were okay but we feel there are better options for the price-point. The server was nice but not very attentive. (My husband was never asked if he wanted another cocktail, my cocktail sat empty for at least 10 minutes before I was asked if I would like a second). We prefer to dine slowly, and we understand in the current environment that isn’t always possible due to staffing and seating constraints, however, we felt incredibly rushed from the first moment we sat down. Overall, the meal was good but it is not the atmosphere/vibe of Ruth Chris of the past.

The food was poor. My companion’s salmon was over cooked and tasteless and my crab cakes could have come from giant Eagle. Service was good and the people pleasant, but we won’t go back soon.

As always, everything was consistent. Steaks were cooked to correct temperature and sides were excellent. Also cocktails were also perfect and included a generous pour. Just a consistent, high quality experience.

Good food, but not worth the price point! They have lost a step (both in service and food).
My shoestring fries came out lukewarm. The filet was outstanding as it always used to be! The servers didn’t really keep up (lost track that we were celebrating a birthday till the meal was almost over, dropped things off and quickly disappeared when we needed accompanying items).
It is a real challenge in the current environment to get everything right (I really understand) but when a meal cost this much, need to do better.

The choices are limited for those whom has shellfish allergies, almost everything was seafood. Also it's not really kid friendly.

Steaks were not cooked to temperature-requested medium rare and medium rare + and all 3 steaks were a solid red in the middle and one of them actually cold in the middle. Sent that steak back-it came back cooked more to temperature but a little overdone on the outside of it, probably due to having to recook same steak that had already been cut in half. All in all fine, but when you are at a steak place and this happens-shouldn’t they at least comp one dessert for the mess up? When you spend the kind of money to go here, service should be a bit better.

From the minute we walked in the door, when they wished my son "Happy Birthday!" until the time we left and they thanked us for coming, it was a wonderful experience! The food was fantastic! Our waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. My husband and I got the meal that came with a salad, side & dessert which was an excellent value! My husband said his Caesar salad was one of the best he ever had! The steaks were cooked exactly as asked and were flavorful and delicious! We got a kick out of the 500 degree plates and how the steaks continued to sizzle! After our entree's they brought out a mini-cheesecake with berries on a plate decorated with "Happy Birthday" in chocolate sauce for my son. When we asked him how it was he replied, "Delicious, of course! They just don't miss!" He was so right!

Liked the previous Ruth’s Chris atmosphere before the renovation. New renovation doesn’t have the classic steakhouse vibe. We usually like having favorite servers around town, but Ruth’s Chris never really gives us an option. Food was great!

It was ok , the medium filet was definitely closer to well which is a surprise because usually they are closer to
Medium rare when they come out and the lobster tail was a little bit over cooked as well. I only gave 3 stars for service because we waited a solid 35 min after we were completely done eating for our check. Usually the service there is top notch. For some reason the clientele at this location has changed exponentially, it used to be more business / suit oriented people and now it’s more color coordinated basketball jerseys hats and shoes all matching. Everything just took exceptionally long.

We had a party of four and in addition to steaks, we shared the seafood appetizer. All the food was excellent and cooked as requested. The restaurant is pricey, but worth it for the right occasions.
