I went to celebrate someone’s birthday. The waitress and all the staff were super. My only negative comment is that someone in the group ordered barbecue shrimp and it didn’t look or tasted grilled enough if at all. It was cooked but not enough for a barbecue.

Wait staff took a long time to clear food and we had two folks waiting for desert/coffee while others finished theirs.

My steak was fatty and underdone. Our sides looked diner level. Our server....the less said,the better.

The. Best. Steak. House. By far! While we don't go to Ruth's Chris too often (perhaps 2 or 3 times a year), it never disappoints! We are always amazed at just how perfect the food always is ... every time! If you're reading this review, and wondering whether it's really as good as this ... just go, and you'll see for yourself. Your taste buds will thank for it!

I loved every minute of it. Everything was perfect for our anniversary. Rose petals on the table, they took a picture of us. Our waiter was the best! The food was delicious!! I will be back soon.

Ruth Chris is a well-established brand that succeeds because the quality of the food, responsiveness of the wait staff, focussed menu all play to their strengths. The menu has items that will please those that don't like red meat but the primary focus here is on serving excellent steaks with the right size and quantity of side dishes to complement the focus of the meal. We don't come here often for non-business dinners as the prices do command a premium but we love this place for special occasions. They also know how to serve a proper Vesper (which given how many bartenders have failed the test) is another high mark for them.

Really amazing steaks and sides dishes. The Sweet Potato Casserole is to die for, YUM! My original steak was not prepared as requested (Medium) and they quickly coarse corrected with no issue. A bit on the pricey side, however, worth it. Loved our bar waitress, Karen.

Not too impressed. Little things changed the experience. Waiter was nice but a little snooty- others who served with him were much more friendly. I ordered the chicken- no idea it had skin or bones- I never would have ordered it. I removed both but it lost most of its flavor. I ordered the prefix menu. I didn’t realize the side item I ordered was not on it and would be extra. It was only $5 more but it would have been nice to know prior- for the cost of the bill, I would not have ordered it. Last issue was I asked twice for no bacon with the potatoes. It came anyway. Luckily my husband eats pork as my son and I do not. My husband and son were very happy with their meals but I don’t see us returning.

We've been coming here for years. Food in general is predictably good but service varies. Today's was not memorable, from the hostess to the waiter. The server, bus boy was great so that's something.

I am giving this a 2 star rating based purely on the service -- it was deplorable. The staff had no interest in our table. The kitchen however was spot on, the food was fabulous and lived up to the quality one expects when going to a Ruth Chris resturant

Bar was empty and we were ignored. Took complaining to get a drink. Waiter was uninterested. He did look like he played with a band Weezer. Otherwise, great food, horrible experience. Valet was good.

Why is it when I go to the Ruth Chris in King of Prussia they seat me on time and give me good service? Could it be that the Princeton location is totally mismangaed? Every time I make a reservation at this location I have to wait for a table whereas at K of P they seat me on time. I see empty tables but they never seat people on time. A couple arrived having booked thru Open Table and they did not have their reservation even though they had a confirmation #. They told them we don't know why Open Table gives you that number, because it means nothing to us. The service was terrible with no attention to detail. The manager thinks he is suppose to be cleaning and setting up tables instead of managing the operation. I don't know whether it is who owns the franchise or what but when I spend in excess of $200 for a meal for 2 I expect a lot more then this restaurant provides. Very disappointing and I don't know why I have continued to go back. I quit unless something changes.

Normally Ruth Chris’s is a good experience but everything was off on Saturday night. The steaks had to be sent back for two diners as they weren’t cooked accurately. The well-done came out rare and the rare came out well down. Additionally, the sides were missing from one order and it took over 15 minutes to get them to the table. Management apologized but did nothing other than that. Sorely disappointed at this visit and unsure if we will dine there again.

An excellent dinner, the cowboy rib eye was seasoned and cooked to perfection, medium rare. Tasted great without the melted butter. The Lamb chops, Medium were also delicious. Outstanding service while allowing us time to relax and talk
We very much appreciated the desert as a gift for a special occasion. We have visited this location frequently and look forward to another delicious meal.

Excellent restaurant! However, this location’s wine selection is really bad! Also, they tend to keep their red wine bottles opened for two days - and you can taste the slight over oxidation in the wine. Princeton air quality is poor because of its many chemical plants- request new bottles or have them open the wine in front of you. Our server didn’t know how to open the wine bottle - please hire or have your servers practice.

Typical Ruth Chris food, good overpriced steaks and sides
Reason for fair review is the poor service we received

The salad we ordered to share was completely forgotten and never brought

Also, my wife order a specialty coffee that said right on the menu topped with whipped cream

The coffee was served without whipped cream we brought it to the waiter’s attention

He advised us we received what we ordered

Then we had to show the waiter the menu to correct to coffee

Totally unacceptable service for a $300 bill
