    As always, my wife and I visit Ruths to celebrate our anniversary. With the exception of being seated directly under a air conditioning (AC) vent, which was very cold, the food and service was outstanding! I did have to make several requests to turn down the AC; to no avail. Fortunately, the wonderful host offered to move us to a better table that also had a spectacular view of the bay! All in all, everything turned out fine. Our server was good and as always, the food was outstanding! I highly suggest the bone in ribeye! Bon apatite!

    We ordered a medium well done steak and it came rare and ruined my daughter’s appetite. They did remove it from the ticket but the damage was already done.

    Loud - But understandable given the large parties for Graduation. Service by some was great, by others I would have expected more. Sides were good, my kids fillet was on point, my ribeye was salty, and did not finish, nor complain. I have seen in other places when food goes back what can happen.... I just assume pay and go.

    Ruth’s Chris was simply outstanding in every aspect of the dining experience. All of our food choices were layered with flavor and explained so well by our server. I also recommend the Faust wine paired with the filet - a match made in heaven! Ruth’s Chris made my boyfriend’s birthday so special with a customized menu heading and confetti everywhere when we arrived. Fantastic!

    Our server Rachel was outstanding, cheerful and complimented the dinner with her knowledge of the menu. The steak is one of the best I’ve ever had, cooked to perfection and the taste was delicious. We had a seafood tower that was full of tasty treats.
