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

Food quality was excellent as always. Our server seemed disinterested in being there that night, which is not what we usually experience at Ruths Chris.

Shrimp, steak, onions, and shoestring potatoes - all excellent. Great bread and butter too. A staple steakhouse in a large field of steakhouses. Easy parking.

enjoyed the dinner although there were a few hiccups . the service was terrible. our waited disappeared for long periods of time , played remained in table and no one cleared then for at least 20 mins . we had to ask 2 other servers for the check .
they offered a 3 course meal which was a good price , the caesar salad was delicious , the filet was over cooked , i ordered med rare - for a steakhouse they need to get their temperatures accurate . they forgot to bring a loaded baked potato - instead of taking it back they brought the toppings to the table .
it’s a beautiful restaurant , but they need to step up there game .

My meal was fine. Dissapointed with my wifes. Her crab cakes were sub standard and lobster mac & cheese was barely warm. Others got a valentines rose-not my wife! Weve always enjoyed the food and service- not this time. Our waiter Eddie was less than attentive.

I ve been there so many times with my wife or with my family over the years. This time I was dissapointed. We felt very rushed . We got the appetizers before the drinks !!! . I had to ask for the drink s twice . One of them was a Diet Coke !! This never happens in a small pizza place around the corner !! The appetizers came in less than 5 minutes even before we started talking...
They were rushing to take my wife’s appetizer dish away ...
ON THE OTHER HAND we asked for a cheese cake and capputino .. the cake came after I was far done with the capputino which was way below average...
I DONT EXPECT TO GO TO CELEBRATE AN EARLY VALENTINE DAY WITH MY WIFE ,PAY ALMOST 300$AND GET THIS KIND SERVICE ..
I ONLY EXPECT EXCELLENCE FROM THEM .
THATS WHY I GO THERE
YOU CAN GIVE MY NAME . I AM NOT HAPPY
IAM NOT GOING THERE ULNESS I HEAR FROM THEM. ALL MY IN-LAWS ,GO TO RUTH CHRIS TOO.

Our reservation was for 6:15 - but we arrived a little early (just about 6:00). Even though our table was clear and set, the hostess made us wait until our reservation time. Others came in with the same reservation time and were seated well before us.

Princeton Ruth's just doesn't seem to have that "pizzazz" it used to have, especially for the price point.

All employees are extremely nice, including our server; however, it was not that busy and many things were forgotten. First, starting with water, I had asked for lemons and didn’t get them until I asked a second time 20 minutes later-this was the same for getting my mom’s sweetener for her iced tea. Second, while delicious, calamari was very chewy. Third, my iceberg wedge was brown-and they did credit us for it, but just disappointing for a place like Ruth’s Chris. Finally, I was out of water for more than ten minutes before I had to flag someone down for more.

On a high note, the steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides were all delicious.

Overall, we had an enjoyable time.

I truly enjoyed the food as always. Our waitress was great, her assistant not so much because he barely came around and the waitress cleared most of the empties herself.

The food came quickly and was excellent.

However, the bartender took awhile to get drink order and as soon as it finally came, we had to leave to get our table. Perhaps he was clearing up from the dinner shift inasmuch as our dinner was later at 8:45.
