We've been to the Ruth's Chris in DC and in Raleigh. This one is not as good food wise. Having said this, the service is impeccable. Being clear, the food was not "bad" just that we recall the food being better at the other locations. We might return.

Great ambiance, staff was very accomodating - definitely made you feel pampered.
The bottled spring water was amazing, the sides were terrific, the bread and butter were wonderful - but both of our entrees were over cooked and dry.
The waiter missed ordering my husband's side dish, but that was NO big deal and quickly righted.
The signature T-bone for which there was much boasting that when cooked medium, could be "cut with a butter knife" could barely be cut with the steak knife. It may have come out as medium, but after the additional cooking from the 500* plate, it was as dry and "done" as medium well or even well (my husband did not finish his steak and THAT is very unusual).
My Filet on the bone was not medium rare as ordered, until you got right near the bone - the rest was over braised and not even pink; again, quite dry.
Previous experiences have not been so disappointing, so I know they are capable of much more; but at their prices, one is not unreasonable when expecting something closer to perfection, every time.

Excellent dining experience with friends. Highly recommend if you want a good steak and high quality food. We enjoyed our meals and the se vice was excellent. Highly recommend to others looking for a great steak meal. My husband and I shared a 40oz tomahawk.

The impeccable service truly sets Ruth’s Chris apart from the rest. From the hostess to our wonderful waitress Kathy, everyone was warm and welcoming, Kathy made sure we had everything we needed, and the food was out of this world. Definitely recommend for any special occasion or a romantic date night.

Exactly what you would expect from a premier steakhouse. The Richmond Ruth’s Chris is uniquely located in a historic farmhouse dating back the when the French Hugeunots were colonizing along the James River above Richmond. So a five star history lesson and location along with a five star dining experience.

I was surprised to see the Ruth's Chris in Richmond was in an old historic plantation house. The ambiance was amazing and driving up to the house you have to take a double look to make sure that your in the right spot. The service was good, and the food was great. My chicken was a bit dry, but everyone else had a perfectly cooked steak. The server was very friendly and knowledgable on the menu. It was a wonderful experience and I would love to visit again.

Outstanding, as usual! I have been a Ruth's Chris CUSTOMER since New Orleans 1983. Only better are Palm and Peter Luger's, NYC. Do prefer older male waiters.

The service is incredible. The food is overpriced and drenched in butter. This is a menu issue. They need to get up with the times. Don’t saturate everything in butter.

Also, don’t put everything on hot plates. Fish goes from cooked to way over cooked in no time.

Ruth's Chris is a stand out all the time. Great service, consistently great food, and wonderful ambiance. We go a couple times a year, always for a special occasion or overdue date night. If you are able, try to make it to one of the wine dinners they host. Wonderful way to try new food and meet new people!

The definition of fine dining! Celebrated Valentines dinner with my wife tonight. My wife and I had the Filet and Lobster Tail. It was out of this world. Local oysters for our appetizer were heavenly. The service was top notch, Tim and his assistant, Josh were fantastic! I highly recommend Tim as a server. It was a perfect date night.

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.

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.

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.
