Attention to detail and truly delicious food. Excellent waitstaff. Must state, however, As a first impression upon entering the establishment, the waiting area could be improved. While there are about 8 seats near the fireplace area, as you enter the door to come into the ‘lobby’, there is no clarification of where to ‘checkin’ for your reservation. While I understand that it was an extremely busy Saturday evening, yet there needs to be more information of where to checkin and other places to stand and wait besides right at the door entrance. The hostess made no effort to notice new people entering, nor to acknowledge if they needed assistance. You have one chance to make a first impression and that was mine. The service, food, and overall ambience once inside the actual dining area was impeccable.

Excellent waiter, friendly, knowledgeable. Medium-plus temperature for lambchops were abit over done. Mixed salad was excellent and nice presentation. Table for 6 and 5 meals were served with an uncomfortable wait for the last person's entrée to arrive, which was only a soup and salad. New Years Eve décor for entire restaurant was very tastefully done and festive. Missed the Lyonnaise Potatoes not being a side dish available to order though the Au Gratin Potatoes were delicious.

As always the food was excellent. All three apps and Caesar salad were terrific as was our petite filets and sides. Our waiter, RJ, was attentive (to the appropriate degree) and polite. He provided excellent advice on all dishes and ensured everything was served to us in a timely and unrushed fashion. Great job! Again, we enjoy our dinners at RC!

We’ve been to this Ruth’s Chris many times. Never have we had this happen: we ordered a particular bottle of wine. The waitress comes back with a completely different bottle of wine. We said NO that’s not the correct bottle, she begins to open it and says “it’s the same”, and my husband said “no it definitely is not...it wasn’t even close and we want the bottle we ordered”. So she huffed off and a few minutes later appeared with the correct bottle and served it. The two wines were completely different, no mistaking one for the other. We had customers with us and we were not happy. It will be a while before we go to this particular restaurant next time we entertain guests. It was very unprofessional and not in line with Ruth’s Chris standards.

I love this restaurant and have been there many times. This time I ordered two glasses of champagne to toast a birthday, received the bill and the cost was $40. I just wish the waiter would have just recommended the bottle. $20 a glass was a bit much and a expensive surprise

Ruth’s Chris is always first rate and our favorite restaurant for special occasions. However last Sunday night was different. We had to wait even though we had reservations, we ordered drinks and appetizers which were great, then we had to wait over 45 minutes for our dinner to be served. We were almost ready to leave when it finally arrived. The manager asked about our food and we shared with him our experience. He offered to comp or appetizers which was very nice. However he didn’t share this arrangement with the waiter which was awkward. I share this so Ruth chris can make adjustments and remain the top level restaurant that it’s been for so many years.

Yes, I recommend Ruth's Chris Steak House to friends, people within my company and others who want a great dining experience. Being a senior executive within my company I travel quite a bit and have eaten at Ruth's Chris over 250+ times in many different locations. I enjoy carrying business associates as well as friends and family to the restaurant. I always know the food and service will be of top quality and consistent at each location. I have also held birthday, anniversary and other gatherings at Ruth's Chris Steak House. The staff is knowledgeable, courteous, kind and most of all, go out of their way to ensure each guest is made to feel special. Very few restaurants go the extra mile to achieve this goal. If you are seeking a wonderful and unique dining experience for dinner or a special event, I encourage you to try Ruth's Chris Steak House. You will not be disappointed.

You cannot beat the quality of the meat. This was the highlight of the meal, well, that plus the bottle of Stags Leap cabernet. Totally elegant. Vegetable side dishes are outdated fro contemporary tastes. Cheese covering too many options. Both bread pudding options were very good.

We had never been to a Ruth Chris Steakhouse and it is not what we thought at all. The mansion it is in is beautiful, the service, excellent and same with the food. We both had the Thanksgiving dinner for $41.95 each. It included choice of 2 appetizers, main dinner, (generous portions of turkey and stuffing. Choice of vegetables. We picked sweet potato pie and dessert, pumpkin cheesecake with vanilla ice cream. This was a great value considering the restaurant is known to be expensive. We loved everything about the place and will definitely return

Served spongy, salty processed turkey loaf and said it was real turkey for Thanksgiving. Think Jennie-O turkey loaf from grocery store. EXACTLY the same taste and spongy crap processed texture. Processed “ham” in the kale. It was pink, but processed looking and tasting. The dressing was wet clump of tasteless bread, no flavor. The gravy was the gravy that comes with processed turkey loaves,salty canned gravy. Ruined my Thanksgiving, I went home hungry, I was expecting to eat real turkey. This was the second bad meal out of 3 in less than 6 months at this location. The manager insisted it was a real turkey. I wasn’t born yesterday.

Should have passed on the thanksgiving meal and gone with steak. If you like a sweet potato casserole that has that marshmallow flavor you would have loved it. I did not. Their garlic mashed potato dish was a disappointment as well as the turkey. The turkey had poor texture and flavor. The dressing/stuffing was average. The tiny serving of pumpkin cheesecake was outstanding! Just a couple bites though. It didn’t need the weak vanilla ice cream. Ah well. Will just go for steaks and def never return for their thanksgiving special. At over $40 a person with drinks and anything else extra, you are paying for very good service and everyone couldn’t have been nicer. Atmosphere is decent.
