Save your money and go somewhere else—-totally overpriced.

I’ve been to this Ruth Chris on many occasions and this was the most disappointing visit—by far. The food was so so, the restroom was dirty, and our booth had holes in each of the bench seats. Our server was attentive and nice. Overall, not worth the price.

Vet disappointing experience. Medium well steak (should have been pink inside) was served very well done. Pear Martini was removed from menu. Slow service in removing plates from table.

The table service was up to standards of not many restaurants. ALL the dishes were cleared before coffee and dessert, usually bread, butter etc. gets left behind. I never felt that the waitress disappeared. Also the wait staff were not teens but seasoned veterans. For a large area the noise level was low and conversations from close tables did not intrude.

The food was delicious and the price was high as expected at a Ruths Chris. But the service really set the meal apart. We had two servers (Mauricio and Sarah) and they were both fantastic. They were fun, personable and helped us select dishes. We enjoyed the meal.

As always Ruth's Chris did not did not disappoint. The steaks were excellent, cooked to perfection, and side dishes of potatoes au gratin and creamed spinach were equally good. The blue cheese crumble and new horseradish toppings for the steaks are worth the try and do not take away from the great taste of the meat. Service was a little slow on this occasion, but we were not in a rush.

Excellent food and service as always-really no longer find it necessary to buck the time element and traffic to go to Peter Lugers in Brooklyn-Ruth Chris location In Princeton I believe is the best spot for a Real Steak House experience in New Jersey

I love lobster. At Ruth's I can get a 2 1/2-3 lb lobster and they are delicious! Also expensive, so we usually only go to the restaurant about 1-2 times a year. Always for a special occasion. This was my birthday. My lobster was good, not excellent. Not as tender as I am used to. My poor husband needs to stop ordering lamb chops. Every time he does, they arrive raw. Every time he sends them back. He promises to stick to steak. My son and his girlfriend had steak and scallops respectively and loved their meals. On the plus side, they very nicely brought an apple turnover with a candle on it for my birthday!

The petite filets have shrunk over the past year. Now sliced in half. Cocktails over priced. $20 for a Manhattan in Plainsboro NJ is over the top. Service not to Ruth's customary level. I have been a customer at various locations for 20 years

Ruth's is always a great place to celebrate a special occasion. the steaks are amazing. We had the Ruth's Classic all inclusive dinner which is a great value. It includes your salad, main course, side dish and dessert. Significantly less expensive than al a carte. My only concern was that the waiter was less than attentive and the restaurant was almost empty.
