Food was great but service was VERY slow, surprising for an outfit like Ruth’s Chris. Also, was out of Joseph Phelps cab and lobster for the seafood tower. Still good as long as your expectations of service speed is not high.

Wonderful food, very good service (although bar was slow); perhaps understaffed due to current circumstances... Seating was still separated some, which feels comfortable. Overall, a terrific evening.

excellent all the way around. Porterhouse for 2 steak perfectly prepared and tasty , salad, lobster mac cheese side and dessert all delicious. Service staff (Jason, Charlie) were helpful and unobtrusive. Restaurant is still practicing " social distance spacing".
The open tables were all full when we left. Looking forward to our next visit.

Every year, I celebrate my birthday because I absolutely love their food. I never have any problems or have to say things twice! Kevin is great and have been serviced by him before. His training server, however failed to provide constant water for the table, offer more drinks and nearly dropped all the utensils when cleaning up. For the first time, I could actually say service was ok. Food on the other hand, absolutely yummy!!!!

We were there for a birthday party. Service started out great. Birthday girl was given a hockey puck for a fillet. Most well done piece of meat I’ve seen ever. She ordered her filet medium. Waiter was nowhere to be found. Dessert sucked. We were dying for more coffee but couldn’t find the waiter. Once again waiter did the disappearing act. I would never go back to this place.
Save your money.

This was our first time dining out since the pandemic started, and everything was perfect! We've had to be very careful during the past year+ until our family was fully vaccinated, and we were still a bit nervous about dining inside. We quickly realized that we didn't have to worry - the restaurant staff was all still wearing masks, the tables are far enough apart, everything was spotless, and we noticed many other precautions still in place. We were quickly able to relax, order drinks, and enjoy dining like the old days! We were happy to see that all of our favorites are still on the menu, and the food was delicious! Our waiter was terrific, and even remembered us from over a year ago. We all talked about how nice it was to be back, and to enjoy some normalcy again, finally. We will go back again soon!

Restaurant inside was nice. Location a little odd - very open field that seemed like an airport field, but on the plus side, there's peace and quiet!

Ruth's Chris never disappoints. Between the ambiance, attentive staff and the food, all I can do is rave!! Our server was more than professional, and the assistant server was delightful. We were celebrating a birthday and were pleasantly surprised by the confetti on the table and the special dessert.

This is the second time in two weeks that we have had dinner with one of our sons at Ruth's Chris in Princeton. We had not been back since the beginning of the Pandemic

Both times the service was excellent and the food was as we remembered and did not disappoint. We are glad to have Ruth's Chris back.

Another great dinner at Ruth Chris! Made a reservation for Mothers Day hoping they would do a better job from the previous Mother Day and they did an outstanding job. Had a late reservation at 8 but got there around 7:30 and they seated us right away. Not crowded and tables was spreaded apart from each other. Good job with the Covid restrictions.

Phil came and walked us to the table and I was a little shocked being I asked for Kevin when I made my reservation but it wasn't an issue because Phil seemed pleasant. Sat down and asked if we wanted bread and a drink and we proceeded to order drinks while we waited on the bread. I also asked was Kevin working because we would like to say hello. Kevin came over and we spoke for a few min and I let him know that we requested him and dont know why they didn't sit us with him. Few min later Kevin came back and let us know that he would be taking care of us and that thr hostess didn't realize we requested him.

Kevin is very knowledgeable of the menu and remembered that I love Sea Bass and advise me that they were making it a new way and he recommended it so I ordered it along with my wife ordering her favorite a bone in NY Strip which was cooked to perfection but it do looked like the size of the steak was smaller than I remember. Also order the Lobster Mac and Cheese which was also better than I remember. They slim lined the menu due to Covid but I'm glad to see they survived this far with all the restaurant restrictions.

Another well done meal due largely to the chef and Kevin for making our experience a great one.

If you looking for a great experience ask for Kevin section when booking. He will definitely take care of your needs.

prior to covid we could be considered regulars here for when we went out for "higher end" steak dinner. . this was the first trip back, the experience just wasnt good, server, kitchen prep just not up to par. manager did try to help but it was too late as the experience was ruined by that time.

We started off with crab stuffed mushrooms and veal osso buco ravioli which were both fabulous. I had a blackberry sidecar and an old fashioned, which were great as well. The NY strip was wonderful and the lobster mac and cheese was probably the best I've ever ate. They gave copious amounts of lobster in it on top rather then hide it under layers of shells and cheese.

Wow! My wife and I habeen here in a few years and it was outstanding! We always look for a "soup to nuts" restaurant. This one from sitting to leaving was excellent service and food! The steaks we were so impressed with tbone cooked perfectly for two to share. We had 2 martinis, cabernet and creamed spinach that was awesome. Would highly recommend better than local Steakhouses!
