We were celebrating a birthday, our server was Ronn, he was by far one of the best waiters I have ever had. My family love to go out so we have had quite a few. He was just AWESOME. The food was also great.

We booked our reservation early and were able to reserve a time before the dinner crowd came. Our reservation was at 4, so we practically had the place all to ourselves for an hour. With COVID, we debated whether or not to keep our reservations, but I’m glad we did. We caught them right before they closed outdoor seating/dining again. There was limited seating outdoors, which made us feel safe. The service was EXCELLENT, as always.

My wife and I went to Ruth Chris to celebrate my retirement on Monday. Pamela, our server, and Jeff, the "on duty Manager, were both absolutely wonderful! We sat out on the upper balcony (due to COVID protocol). The view and sunset were great. The food and the drinks were PERFECT. We were both extremely happy! Thank you Pamela and Jeff !

We always expect a perfect meal when dining at Ruth's Chris, and our dinner did not disappoint. Beginning with our cocktails and appetizer, onto the tender steaks we ordered, everything was simply perfect. The best part of our meal, was however, our congenial waiter, Leo. He was friendly and engaging. His service was exceptional. My husband's surprise birthday cake was a perfect way to cap off our meal. Thank you Ruth's Chris and Leo for making my husband's birthday celebration so memorable.

We came for my birthday celebration. Our waiter was wonderful. The food was delicious, though I would have preferred that my lobster tail was served on a separate plate as it soaked up the juices from my New York strip and caused it to lose its flavor. Overall, it was a lovely evening and we would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.

We went there for our anniversary. Our server was Pamela. She was friendly and made great recommendations. Service was exceptional. We got the tomahawk dinner for two. It was well priced for $155. It include two starters, 40 oz tomahawk ribeye with two sides (mashed potatoes and creamed spinach) and dessert (chocolate sin cake). Pamela was kind enough to include a complimentary dessert (cheesecake) since it was our anniversary. The ribeye was well cooked (medium rare). Tasty, tender, and melt in your mouth good. Definitely would come back.

This place was insane. I have absolutely nothing to complain about. We had dinner early, around 4:15 and ended around 6 or 6:30. The later in the night the louder it did get near the bar, but if you’re far from the bar or outside it’s perfect. The seating was large for two people which I respected. Although it is highly priced the food was... it was just far too good. The service and our waiter was so amazing and so helpful. EAT HERE it’s so fancy I loved every second I want to go back already

Service was good. There food has seriously gone downhill! Soup was cold, filet was too salty and undercooked, ahí tuna had way too much peppery old Bay seasoning on it. The best thing was the asparagus and the cheesecake. With all the great restaurants out there now, don’t waste your money here.

Outstanding service from the host to the server to the server assistants. Ruth's Chris never disappoints. The entire experience felt very safe beginning to end (we dined 10/15) and the host gave a choice o table options: patio/outdoors, indoors, bar (we chose indoors due to the high ceilings, AC and spacing). Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable. Service was impeccable and the food was delicious. If you're looking for a trendy, hotspot this isn't your place. If you want traditional high quality food, service and experience at a good price this is your spot! And the views are amazing.
