Ruth's Chris Steak House - Pittsburgh Ratings and Reviews
Our steak did not taste as good as usual. Felt like it was back under lights to keep warm.... no sizzle. No scallop appetizer- such a shame. Onion rings were not cooked and sent back. We have been coming there for many many years and always count in a good meal. This was disappointing.
As usual, the food was outstanding. However, the service was slow, which is not our normal experience at RC.
we had to ask for water to be re-filled and too much time between end of dinner and dessert. Plus, dishes were not cleared in a timely manner, nor were crumbs removed.
Hopefully, this was a "flook" and not the new norm. we'll be back
Let me start by saying. The manager never said a word to us other than , do you want me to take your dirty plates!? No Hello, how are u, and most importantly did not ask, how was your meal?. One of the worst filet's I ever had, it was especially heart breaking when the rest of my family told me their filet's were very tough and way overcooked. The 500 degree plate is nice if the meat comes out like you ordered it. But the meat was already over cooked before it ever reached the dinner plate!!!!!!! Very poor experience!!!!!! Will not be going back to Ruth Chris!!!!! Everything else was ok. Not worth anywhere near the price. Had a better steak at Longhorn. Maybe they chef had an off night, overcooking my entire family's filet's is an off night I would say!!!!.... That's pretty sad. :(
My wife and I went for restaurant week , 35.18 for a 6 oz filet , mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, Cesar salad , and a small apple cheesecake for dessert! We of course ordered the ahi tuna appetizer, so good , very filling ! The waitress was friendly but they have to many other people bringing food , which led to a delay in eating the filet which took away from the experience! When a customer asks they should not have to hunt done another staff member bc the other one forgot! Especially at regular prices not everyone can afford!
Normally one of our families favorite restaurants. We save up and go over the holidays. This time things were not up to par. They remodeled. Out table was nearest to the door. While it was only 8 degrees out, it was also 8 degrees at our table. Our feet didn’t thaw until we got home. We are also picky about our expensive steaks coming as ordered. Three of the five steaks we over cooked. I know they put them on 500 degree plates and they continue to cook on the way to the table- so plan for that. I want my steak medium rare when it get to me not when the chef puts it on the plate because it’s medium well by the time I take my first bite. When paying $60 for a steak it needs to be perfect. I know we are to blame if we aren’t willing to send them back(all 3). But at a place like this they should get it right 4/5 times not 2/5. Nor did the staff ask if they were cooked correctly until we were well into our meal. An attentive server should be able to look at our steak after we cut into it and know it isn’t right- they know how we ordered them. A high class joint like this needs to do far better than they did on this occasion.
We come here often. Our server was friendly, prompt and attentive. we Were sat next to a table of four even though the restaurant was not crowded at all. It was quite annoying that several of the people at that table were swearing quite loudly.
The calamari came out rubbery when it is usually excellently prepared. We didn’t send it back though. The rest of the meal was good. Love that parking is free!
No two ways about it. The steaks here are fabulous. Everyone loved their food and we found the drinks to be a reasonable price. The only issue we had with the entire evening was the wait for our table. We made this reservations over a month ago, anticipating our 'special Christmas dinner' with friends. OK - I get it - it was December 22nd, and the restaurant is located in the heart of Pittsburgh's holiday festivities with the Christmas Market, ice skating rink and PPG Wintergarden displays all nearby. But I would have thought a restaurant of this caliber would have better management of their reservations. We arrived a few minutes early for a 7:30 reservation and were told they were running 'a few minutes behind' but were assured there would be no issue with us being seated by 7:30. It was 8 pm before we were seated and couldn't help noticing that we walked past SEVERAL empty tables enroute - some clean and some waiting to be bussed. Fortunately the upbeat personality and first rate service from Paige helped to rescue the mood, and as I said, everyone absolutely loved their meal.
Ruth's Chris at PPG Place stands as Pittsburgh's "original" steakhouse, having been operating in the city since the 1980's. Now, after a remodeling of the lounge and dining area, it remains the place for the best steak in the city. Service in impeccable, and while you come for the steaks and fresh seafood, the appetizers and sides really add the finishing touches to a great meal.
Bring clients or friends to Ruth's Chris, and they'll thank you forever. It just doesn't get much better than this.
I have been coming to Ruth's Chris Steak House for years. The place looks more open and modern since the renovation. We had Mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat for appetizers. They were the most delicious thing ever. We ordered our usual filet as main course. In my experience whenever we order the steak to be medium it ends up being well done. As a recommendation I would keep that in mind when you make that request. The plates are super hot and the meat is going to keep cooking on that a bit longer. As for sides we tried the creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin. I definitely liked the spinach better. The deserts where truly amazing. I highly recommend the Chocolate Duo. I can't wait to return again. I love this restaurant.
I have not been to Ruth Chris in a couple years. I must say, I was disappointed in my meal. I ordered the surf and turf twin lobster tails and petite ribeye. My steak was over cooked at medium when I had ordered rare to medium rare. In addition, the steak was not well marbled and was dry and chewy. The lobster tails were somewhat cold. A menu item called layonaise potatos was misnamed in my opinion. They should have been called hash browns. I wanted a fabulous experience and I was disappointed.
The food was very good. However the wait was unacceptable. We were seated at 12:00. Our food was served about 1:15. The service was very slow from beginning to end. I plan to spend an 1:30 at a nice restaurant even for lunch, but 2 hours is a little much to ask. The 2 hours was without enjoying coffee or dessert.
