Ruth's Chris never disappoints, at any of their locations, but the Richmond one is very special. The building is stunning, inside and out, and everyone there is as nice as can be. We celebrated a friend's "big birthday" and it was a wonderful evening.

We've eaten at other RC locations, this one is among the top. The setting is beautiful. It's in an old plantation house, very cozy with 2 fireplaces upon entry. The service was top notch, food was excellent. It is well worth the drive from downtown Richmond. Plenty of parking, very nice area. I would highly recommend eating here.

Our server, Thomas, was superb. He delivered the most incredible service from start to finish. The food (we both ordered filet mignons) was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The bread, sides, and drinks, were also very, very tasty. The atmosphere was perfect and we had a fabulous dining experience. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, especially for a special occasion!

Ruth’s Chris is a class act and a perfect place for our anniversary dinner. The staff was courteous and professional, the waiter was excellent, and our food was prepared perfectly. We will spend many future anniversaries eating dinner there.

It was my boyfriend and I's first time visiting. Charlie was absolutely fantastic; between him and Christian we were well taken care of!! The food was as pleasing as the ambiance and I'm looking forward to the next visit (because we are DEFINITELY coming back...and are telling all our friends about it) so I can start to put a dent in trying the massive wine selection and try even more delicious flavors!! I'd give it five-THOUSAND stars!

Owner is Prejudice did not get the Red zRoom which was noted in the Reservation and Follow up with a direct call, Someone remove Our Names probably from issues with Customer Service last Valentines Day. Bad business and the people are arrogant and snobby. The owner accused me of pointing my finger at him. When I use my fingers away from him to state two points, that this reservation was booked almost a year in advance. The tomahawk steak was burnt on the ends and so was my ribeye terrible this was my last visit, I told the owner my hubby was a Federal Investigator he changed his demeanor but and put us up front so we did not see who they booked in the Red Room that we reserved!

Our Valentine’s Day eve dinner was a great celebration of another Valentine Day for my wife and me! From the time of being shown to our table until our exit some two hours later, the evening was an ongoing great experience. Service was out of this world; we could not have had a better evening anywhere. The food was excellent, we even had a little left to take home for the next day’s lunch ... making the experience last into the actual Valentine’s Day! We may have to plan this again for next year!!

Ruth's Chris is the best restaurant I've ever been in. Compare to top rated places worldwide, sample set built for the last 9 years. Consistent as well, there's not even a blip in the best service, food and atmosphere. Go there.

Steak was very average with little flavor. I expected a more flavorful steak for something that is prime and cost $60.

Definitely not worth the money. Service was also just ok and didn’t follow up and thru on several points throughout the meal.

Not my first time here but may be my last.

We have enjoyed Ruth's Chris for my wife's birthday for three years in a row and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time! The consistent perfect taste and texture of everything we order is remarkable. The setting, service, and entire experience is always perfect. We are looking forward to our next visit. The only thing I would deem a potential improvement would be offering entirely grass-fed beef.

Ruth's Chris has seemed to be in somewhat of a decline in the last several years compared to its "glory day." My visits until recently have been inconsistent with regard to food quality, service, and ambiance. However, my most recent visit was a real delight. The food was superb, the service excellent, and the ambiance was a throwback to the best years in Richmond's Ruth's Chris history. It is obvious that management has made a concerted effort to make Ruth's Chris once again Richmond's premier "go to" restaurant.
