    Father’s Day dinner. We were sat quickly by friendly, efficient hostess. Our server was great and she handled our order perfectly. Food tasted very good. Ambiance good and comfortable. Only complaint is that I would have liked my bread pudding warm, not room temperature.

    Outstanding Service and great food. Wine list was extensive and more import the wines are in the cellar so when you order them you do not get the dreaded, OUT OF STOCK on that one! Service was extraordinary and the place was busy. Even though it was very busy attentiveness was excellent.

    Not a great experience. The wait staff was not good. The assistants took our drink order fairly quickly, but when the waiter arrived he rushed us pretty quickly. We didn’t have a ton of time to get the appetizer order in and then he said if you don’t get your order in now I can’t guarantee when you will get it. While rushing us, he took 2 of the 4 orders and then left the table to assist another table. He came back 5 minutes later and continued the order, but he forgot to get my whole order. They were slow in clearing plates. They starting putting down salads before were done with the appetizer. Too small of a table for that many plates. Slow getting additional drink orders. When he brought the check, he had the temerity to ask for a 5 star review because he got a bonus for each one. He may have wanted to give 5 star service in in order to get that kind of review. Oh, and he just handed me the credit card machine and had me run it through myself, select payment type, and print out my own receipt. For the price I paid and for the tip he got, not worthwhile. I didn’t have high expectations for the river walk, but I did for Ruth Chris. Very mediocre. I would not visit again.

    You really cannot go wrong at Ruth’s Chris. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked, tender and delicious. We ordered french fries as a side and the plate held enough to feed half the dining room. Fresh and delicious. Don’t care for red meat? No problem. I had a salmon and shrimp dish that made me wish for seconds. Perfect temperature, moist and the sauce was a wonderful addition. I prefer a bit less oil, but I was probably too generous with the fish sauce. Our wait person Ben was outstanding. He was friendly, attentive, detailed oriented and thoughtful in his descriptions of the menu options.

We strive to provide the highest and finest quality with regard to both food and service, not to mention hospitality, much like Ruth would have done herself. I'll be sure to share your positive comments with Ben, and we hope to welcome you back in soon.

    I will be honest in my review... This was probably one of, if not the worst customer service experiences I've ever had & that says a lot! Most of the food was pretty good, but not good enough to tolerate the horrible customer service we experienced. I was very surprised that this would even happen at this restaurant, but I was surely proven WRONG. I would never recommend this particular location to anyone due to my experience today. The young lady who waited on us had the worst attitude and treated us as if she didn't want us there, basically. Overall, it's a NO for me!

    I would not dine here again. The wedge salad was good and I should have stopped there. The ribeye while tasty was poorly trimmed and half of it was for me inedible as I could not get through the gristle. The creamed spinach was downright terrible, it was cold had the consistency of paste an was so bad that each of us had one bite and that was all we had of it. Maybe this was a bad day but I would not recommend this restaurant.

    We waited 50 minutes before we received our drinks. Then they were wrong. They used sweet vermouth for our martini’s instead of regular. Ceasar salads were amazing and so were steaks, Brussel sprouts were under done and could not find potatoes under all the cheese in the potato’s au grautin.

    Had a great time as always when we come to Ruth‘s. Invited a Client and her husband out for dinner bc the food here is always a hit. Portion sizes perfect and the food was cooked to perfection. Only suggestion is that the corn not have salsa in it. My client/friend was a little bit surprised by the flavor of it since she had never had corn with salsa in it. The service was perfect and management came over to check on us and make sure that everything was great. Ambiance in the dining room was on point and just the right amount of lighting. Cocktails were perfect and my husband was satisfied with the strength of the old-fashioned! They make a great dirty martini that I was happy with also. Great time had by all!

    What a vast disappointment for fine dining experience at a legendary steakhouse. This Ruth Chris doesn’t even meet the standards of its own reputation and dims with respect to the newer up and comers. Fumbling inexperienced servers who don’t even remember wine lists , whiskeys available , and if you dont ask the server, you won’t be told about any specials. The manager Carlos could be effective at at Applebees or Chili’s perhaps but had no idea how to handle a 6 ounce fillet requested as medium being sent back twice, resulting in a 30 minute wait, and still coming back medium rare! My husband had the t bone which was amazing. Cooked perfectly to order. Thank goodness because that’s all I ate since he shared it with me due to my 30 minute wait for my steak. Our server was attentive enough but very frazzled. I was surprised to learn she’s been there two years. We ordered gentleman Jack, and was told it was available, then that it wasn’t available so switch to single barrel jack, which only made us one drink, then to regular Jack Daniels. Who stocks a bar like that? This is a much more casually ambienced Ruth Chris, with outside dining stretching over the upper part of the Riverwalk. Very nice touch but understand much more casual. Never going back to this location.
