Service was very attentive at first once he got more guest he didn’t check on us. And we had to wait until he came over. Never checked on us how our food was, had to wait for dessert, and our check.

Always a hit! You will spend a bit but this is the place to do it. Incredible ambiance setting in an old plantation house with lots of history. This is a great place to enjoy a special evening. I don't write reviews much, this place it a total charm.

We go here for special occasions and sometimes not, and until last night, have always been very pleased with everything. The waitperson seemed to have a little bit of an attitude. When we asked for bread, he said he preferred to bring it when menus were removed. My husband had given me his water glass as I drink a lot of water and the waiter wanted to take it away. We bought the set menu, and when it came to the dessert, it seemed to take a while and when asked about it, he said he hoped it was on the way. It took 15 minutes -for ice cream? he brought the check with an up charge saying it was the full dessert, which we had not requested.
This is experience was disappointing. However, when speaking to another staff member, he wasn’t surprised when I told him the waiters name.

I have dined at Ruth Chris’ restaurants in four different states and numerous times and never have been disappointed until last night at the Midlothian, VA restaurant. The service was per usual, great. However the food was not up to the standards of any of the other Ruth Chris’ restaurants I have had the pleasure to visit. Seafood was dry and tasteless, meat toppings were dry and tasteless and shoestring Potatoes could not be found. Not sure I would go back to this restaurant. I can spend a bit less than $600.00 for four and enjoy it much better.

Although we typically go to Flemings for family birthdays, I tried Ruth's Chris this time and was disappointed. The food was typical Ruth's Chris high quality but no attention was given to my husband's milestone birthday. I mentioned his birthday in the reservation, to the hostess and to the server. When the desserts arrived, my mother's plate had Happy Birthday written on it with a candle. We promptly corrected the server and he placed the plate in front of my husband but explained he would need to pass it back to my mother after blowing out the candle. Flemings gives a free dessert, truffles as a gift and a photo of the group. We will not return to Ruth's Chris for birthday celebrations.

It was a last-minute decision, we were going to head to the bar but it was packed. So, we ate in the dining room. Glad we did! We had a new server, or at least one we had not had before, and they did a wonderful job. As always.

I have been to several Ruth Chris but not the one in Richmond. I live in Nashville and traveled to Virginia. My friend Lynne who lives in Richmond was having birthday and has never been to a Ruth Chris, so I decided that's where I would take her. The whole experience from our greeting to the end of our meal was very special. Lynne really enjoyed the experience and I look for her to return and bring others there now.
Thank you again for making our night so wonderful!!

We always love Ruth’s Chris. The service is personal and impeccable. They are very attentive, never letting drinks empty, while also not being intrusive. Fantastic. The food is also always very good. The steak is tender and juicy and the sweet potato casserole is amazing. Very filling also. Definitely enough for two or more to share. Probably best for four. The only issue we had was that the sodas weren’t from a fountain, which is a dealbreaker for my husband. We highly recommend here for an elegant night out.

When my parents told me they were coming I immediately thought of Ruth's Chris. Every thing was perfect and they enjoyed every bite. We will eat there every time they come to visit. And a side note my father played music for Ms. Ruth when she was in New Orleans, so it was all the more special for him.
