Great food and Service!

I had a reservation and was a little late, but let them know before had. Once we got there we still had to wait 25 minutes. When we got seated no one took our drink or appetizer order u til 20 minutes later. The appetizer came quickly but the drinks took forever. Our waiter finally came back and took our food order. We didn’t wait too long for it, and all the food was superb. Nothing to complain about there. However, I’ve had an experience like this before at a different Ruth Chris location. The food was amazing, but service did not match it. Very disappointing considering the cost. You pay for the ambience, good and timely service plus the food. I only really got 1/3 of those things.

I have been at Ruth’s Chris quite a few times and have always had a great experience. Except this last time. Food was excellent but service was not that great. Waiter did a very poor job to the level that is what we remembered most about this visit. In a rush to take the order and run. Very impatient ever visit to the table. Not very knowledgeable as well, We asked about a dessert which he said they did not have but we found out later that did because the table next to us ordered and received just fine. Hopefully management will think twice about hiring this level of staff if they are hoping for return customers. Probably going to try other steak houses after this last experience here.

It was a birthday, but no glitter on table or candle for dessert. It was disappointing. We always celebrate our family Birthday . I listed it when I booked but it was forgotten. Disappointed

Some context- A few of our friends have been shying away from RC Steakhouse because the "sides" had gone down. We did not have that experience. Good food and excellent service.

We had 730pm reservations- arrived 15 minutes early but did not get seated until 750pm. The waiting room was crowded and we were told someone else "took" our reservations when my name was called @ 730pm (we never heard my name and we were sitting on the bench next to the front desk). We were led to our giant U shaped booth in the dining room behind the bar- which was relaxed and mellow- the transitions from the front room to the dining room had us both looking at each other going, Wow! You noticed the change of rooms too!

We had Thomas as our server. He was very good at giving us just the right amount of time and space yet still being very attentive. He provided some excellent recommendations (including a red wine that slips my mind- but it was excellent pairing with the steak).

We started with some cocktails and shared a crab cakes appetizer- excellent. We both has rib eyes (16oz/22oz). I ordered the blue cheese "topping" on my cowboy rib eye- however it was left off. Thomas was quick to make the fix- however I think the kitchen put the steak under the roaster/oven to melt the blue cheese topping and it moved the steak temp from med-rare to a medium. Both steaks were moist and tender. We shared some sides- brussel sprouts/potato au-gratin. Both very good and seasoned just right. Also shared the Gi-Normous Cheese Cake dessert- (the cheese cake is big portion- easily shared by 2 people). Dessert was good- It's Cheese Cake- end of story. No perception of being rushed despite being busy- we were able to take our time.

We valet parked out front and the car was there when we were ready to leave. No waiting.
In the end we were both very happy with our RC Steakhouse experience. We have been to the WC/SF locations and have had excellent service and food at both.

Restaurant only moderately busy but they offered us a table in a large EMPTY room! When I said we would prefer to be seated in a more central spot they actually tried to talk me down! We were walked back to the front desk before being seated at a table in the main dining room - were there were several tables available. Not a good start to our evening and difficult to adjust the mood.

As usual, my wife and I had a wonderful meal at Ruth's Chris. It really couldn't have been any better. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. Don't know how they do it but our steaks were exactly the way we like them inside. But, I burrs did the price they better be. lol Our waiter was fantastic. In fact he suggested a dish that was not on the menu as an appetizer. It was hash browns with caramelized onions on top... very delicious. We'll probably order it again the next time! It was a great night out!

As usual at Ruth's Chris, the steak was excellent, and overall the sides were good. The restaurant itself was worn and needs a face lift. The wait staff were friendly and efficient, however, the staff upfront was not as welcoming. We had to change our table because of poor lighting and a less than optimum location in an empty dining room.
