Great sizzling and tender petitie ribeye! The au gratin potatoes and Ruth's Chop Salad were delicious as well. We sat in a romantic and perfect white table cloth table by the window in the bar area. The service was excellent.

Our server was absolutely excellent. He was very attentive and helpful. However, we were not thrilled with the Cosmo that was recommended-way too strong. Our meal was good and the flourless chocolate cake was very good. Thank you for making our anniversary special.
I was a little surprised at the way some people were dressed inappropriately for such a high-end restaurant that charges a lot, considering the recommended "dress code". I was very distracted by this during my meal.
I suppose with the times as they are everyone is afraid to say anything for fear of being told they are discriminating, and the restaurant does not always have control over this. However, I feel that dressing tastefully should be part of the dining experience. Otherwise, why not just go to regular restaurant where you can wear as little clothing as you want?

Thank goodness for consistency during Covid19. On a business trip to Portland for the week and I dined at Ruth Chris twice. The food as always was flawless and delicious. Caesar salad always perfect. Petite filet prepared to perfection. While it was quite I didn’t mind. It let me enjoy my dinner quietly.

My husband and I have been frequenting Ruth’s Chris for the past 20 years and this was the most disappointing experience we’ve ever had. We made reservations for our anniversary and due to COVID there were only 3 occupied tables in the entire restaurant. Our porterhouse for two arrived extremely over cooked and when we flagged down the waitress she immediately knew and even said it before we did. We wondered why she would even serve it in the first place if she knew it wasn’t cooked to par. She went to the kitchen to order a new steak so we decided to try the au gratin potatoes which turned out to be undercooked and still crunchy. We again flagged down the waitress who also took those back to be recooked. Once we finally received our food we quickly recognized that although the steak was cooked appropriately the quality was nowhere near what we are accustomed to or what you would we expect from a $105 cut of meat.
Despite all of these issues there was no apology or attempt to make it right, not even a complimentary dessert. I feel that when things go wrong it’s the prime opportunity for a business to shine based on how they respond and Ruth’s Chis FAILED! I’m sad to say that our 20 year run has ended and we will take our patronage elsewhere in the future.
With only 3 occupied tables you can do better Ruth’s Chris! I won’t waste another anniversary on you 😥

Went there for my anniversary with my girlfriend and I had steak and Alaskan King crab legs which were both delicious. The steak was to-die-for tinder and the crab legs were precut so you have easy access to that gold. My girlfriend had the barbecue shrimp which she thought was excellent ..not really bbq’y in flavor but are more like garlic buttery. We shared calamari which was a great suggestion from our server they were a perfect crunchy appetizer to get things going. And we also had grilled asparagus, and fingerling potatoes which seems like the perfect combination of sides to go along with our entrées. Hopefully you get Ryan as your server he is patient and has good suggestions.

Food was cold. Manager and server made excuses, were defiant and called my partner “sweetheart”. Spent $220+ on a very subpar dinner and didn’t take leftovers home bc unimpressed. Next time will go to Tasty and laser or Ox or Bed Ludd or Beast for much better service and meal by from locally owned restaurants.

I go to Ruth's Chris a lot. Multiple locations. This was obviously an "off" day for this location. They were out of several things we ordered. They waiter was apologetic and nice, but the the service was slower and the food wasn't as good as the standard that I am used to from Ruth's Chris

This is an old favorite. Even on Valentine’s Day, the waitstaff was wonderful, the bone-in filet was perfect, and the drinks were exactly as we ordered them. The front desk is breaking in some new folks so the usual welcome, offer to take your coat and hat, and seating weren’t up to their usual gracious standard (though the restaurant was only 30% full and the night was just beginning). The manager, who stopped by the table, was kind enough to give us a coupon toward our next visit. Looking forward to our next dinner there. Giacomo was friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable.

Cowboy ribeye was fantastic. Cosmopolitan drink was close to flavorless. Asked waiter Matheson for just a nice drinkable glass of red wine to have with dinner, said he would make it happen, he could have mentioned that the one he picked was $24.00 a glass.

Also, I'm pretty sure that we indicated in the reservation that this was a birthday and it was mentioned a couple of times to servers at the table. One server hinted that something was coming to the table and I've gotten complementary birthday desert there before, but nothing came. We did get a dessert menu from the waiter and decided not to get dessert but I really didn't want to ask "hey where is my free dessert" after the birthday had been mentioned and was mentioned in the reservation. So kind of disappointed in that.
