Great dining experience for my husband’s birthday. Waiter took care of us and there were plenty of safe precautions in place. Steaks were excellent, sizzling on the heated plate and cooked to perfection. My husband was in heaven and our friends were in awe of the delicious taste and flavors around the table. Staff couldn’t have been more efficient or helpful, excellent first class service. We are never disappointed going to Ruth Chris Steak House and for a special occasion or just to treat yourself is totally worth the trip. Thanks for making my husband’s birthday a special one. We will be returning guests.

I had a birthday reservation for my wife. This was the second year in a row. Last years experience was 10/10 perfect! This experience was not the same. The server, Dan, seemed unprepared to serve our table. He had to ask if it was a special occasion and it took him 15 mins to find his way back to our table to take our first drink orders. Bobby, our server from last year, will absolutely be someone we request next time we go. Food was excellent.

We had a wonderful first experience.

Our server Dan was very attentive and efficient! Our steaks were cooked perfectly and we plan on a return visit!

It was a great evening at Ruth's Chris!
Entry procedures for the pandemic were well explained ahead of the visit & accomplished very well & speedily. With the social distancing seating, we felt very safe.
Service was at the Ruth's Chris standard of very excellent.
Finally, the petite fillets were scrumptious & the spinach and potatoes as well.
We could find no area that we might mention as improvable.

Steak was delicious as usual. However as part of their limiting the menu due to COVID, they also limited the description. I would not have ordered the chopped salad if i had known it contains blue cheese which I hate.
