Food was good. Service not at all up to par. No water, no check to see if everything was good. Service makes the dinner
Their website and the OpenTable site stated that the wait staff and others employed by the restaurant would be wearing masks and all guests were to do the same. Since the CDC had issued on Tuesday a request that all people going into indoor spaces where Covid transmission is high, whether vaccinated or not wear masks, I thought that Ruth's Chris police was right on. I got to the restaurant and people did not have masks on and even children who obviously were too young to be vaccinated were not masked. I will not return to Ruth's Chris in the future until I feel they are following again best practices. Although NJ has not mandated mask wearing for everyone indoors, I thought the lest the restaurant could do given the strong advise in this high infection area was to have employees, and children who obviously could not be vaccinated be required to wear masks. This was very disappointing to me and I have dined at this restaurant frequently.
been here about 12 times always have loved it thank you for the great dinner
We had our usual, chop salad , porterhouse for 2, lobster mac and cheese and bread pudding. the only snag was steak at first came out too rare, it was a quick fix and otherwise everything was excellent as expected.
The food was very good!
Service, not so good….we had to ask multiple times for utensils and napkins.
We were never offered a cocktail or wine list - we had to ask twice.
Never offered tea or coffee
I can see if the restaurant was packed, but it was a Monday evening with very little tables!
Great food and service. We liked the rest of the staff better than the main waiter, he seemed a little condescending.
Went here looking for a great steak dinner, I picked the right place. An excellent night out
This location was perfect for a nice dinner date. The staff greeted you immediately and they were extremely personable. Our waiters checked on us constantly and made great recommendations. The only downfall was someone had a birthday dinner there and they were extremely loud the entire time we were there. Other than that 10/10.
The prices as many know are ridiculously expensive but we had a gif card of $100 given to us which only covered half the bill!! No adult beverages ordered and 1 appetizer. The steaks had little to no flavor to them. Our bill took FOREVER to get to us. 6:15 dinner reservations and we were there almost 2 hours !! The crowd was not large by any means. Overall pretty mediocre for paying a premium and honestly we’ve had more flavorful steaks at Longhorn Steakhouse for a third of the price!!

Food was great as always. Service was great as well.
Everything is perfect, food is amazing. Only thing is the response from waiters was very slow.
Great food and service consistently
Nice for special occasions
The meal was wonderful, the price was mind-numbing. Happy to have had the experience; but won't be back for a while.
It was delicious, as always.
Everything was absolutely perfect.
Great wine. Great food. Great service.
Awesome! Fantastic serice
The service was excellent. Food was cooked perfectly.
I have been to many Ruth’s Chris locations before and this is probably sub par compared to the ones I’ve been to before. The head waiter Jim was really nice but his assistant Corey and other server were somewhat rude and seem like they didn’t want to be there. The cowboy steak meat quality is not what you would expect from a prime steakhouse and was not prepared well. The ambiance was also not impressive. Feels just like any other ordinary restaurant.
Service wasn’t great. They forgot to bring the salad course. Had to wait forever to get a waiter to the table. I had the cowboy and she had the filet. They were good, not great. For the same money, we’ll go to our favorite place…..twice.
10th Anniversary - very nice evening.
Fantastic service , excellent cocktails and food was prepared and served perfectly.
Food was DELICIOUS and service was attentive. If I had one critique, the bread pudding dessert was tough but everything else we had was amazing!
Wonderful date night dinner! Steak was perfectly cooked and wine was an extremely good value.
Excellent food and excellent service. We go there for all our special occasions.
Excellent service. Thanks Phil
Not a great dining experience. NY Strip was misshapen and grainy. Didn’t seem like prime beef. “The sides are big enough to be shared”. Just is not true. Remember when they would bring out the baked potato and one would exclaim, “Wow! where do the get potatoes that big?!?”
Remember when the salads were so big you’d say, “We should have gotten one and split it.” Have no fear of saying that here.
Just feels like they have let the finance people take over and, if true, they are ruining the dining experience.
Note to Ms. Cheryl Henry: ask someone you know to dine at this location and see if what they describe is consistent with what you expect the dining experience to be.
Ps: front of the house, bar staff and servers are all top rate.
Thank you for the feedback, JustMy2Cents. We take great pride in continuing our founder Ruth Fertel's, insistence on serving Midwestern corn-fed USDA prime beef - beef that represents the top percent of all beef available in the United States. We are truly sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience with us and have passed along your feedback to our culinary team for review. Thank you again for reaching out!
Food was outstanding…
Everything was done to perfection. Jim, our waiter, enhanced the dining experience.
To celebrate my nieces acceptance into graduate university.
Great service and great food
It was just perfect. Staff was attentive, just a perfect evening
My daughter and granddaughter took me out for Fathers Day to the Princeton location. Got there a little early, went right to out booth. Bruno and Annette were very attentive without being intrusive. Porterhouse for two was excellant as usual. My granddaughter's steak from the children's menu was great and she finished everything and had some room for dessert! Good value for the price.
Ruth's never disappoints.
Jake and Adam were fantastic! We made a reservation and ended up arriving early. We were seated right away. The ambiance was perfect for our first date night since the pandemic started. Everything was made to perfection. The suggestions both Jake and Adam made were AMAZING! We will be back VERY soon!
The food was excellent as always but the service left a lot to be desired. At a restaurant of this quality I expect the service to be available without being intrusive, that was not the case. Our server was absent most of the meal. When I asked for salt he vanished for at least ten minutes before I saw him again and had to again ask for salt. When he finally brought the salt the food I wanted to salt was cold; a choice between under salted mashed potatoes and cold mashed potatoes is an unacceptable choice. After dessert was delivered he vanished again and we must have waited 20 minutes to ask for the check.
Food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Service was best I've had at any restaurant.
Celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary. The steaks were delicious our waitress was wonderful she made our anniversary extra special with her bubbly personality. The ambience was great too!
