As a frequent patron, I can tell you Ruth's is always really good. We were there Saturday, and it was simply as good as it gets. Handcrafted cocktails were inventive and delicious... Everything that came out of the kitchen from apps to a seasonal soup, to entrees, sides and dessert was just perfectly on point. Service (Rob) was stellar as always. We both remarked that the evening was over the top good, even using the usual high Ruth's Chris standard as a benchmark.

Service and food were outstanding. I had the ribeye and my husband had the filet mignon. We were both very happy with our entrees. They were cooked and seasoned to perfection. The bread pudding was so delicious. I had the stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. It was also excellent. Our servers were wonderful. It was a wonderful evening.

Wonderful Christmas dinner. From the valet car parker to the hosts and hostesses and servers, Ruth’s Chris made today very special. The steaks and lobster tails were cooked very well, as were the sides. We topped off the meal with creme brûlée and a chocolate lava cake, both of which combined to help us finish this meal in style. The restaurant was particularly busy tonight and still did a nice job of making everyone feel special.

We normally enjoy Ruth’s Chris very much but this dinner was Christmas night and the restaurant was extremely loud and chaotic. In spite of a reservation, we waited half an hour to be seated, a long time for a waiter and then a very long time before the food arrived. The food was cold when it came but, by then, we were so hungry we didn’t complain and ate it. In the meantime the restaurant was so noisy it was difficult to converse. Unlike our usual experience here, this evening was quite unpleasant and certainly not worth the premium price. I guess the moral of the story is to avoid the major holidays at Ruth’s Chris.

Have been to Ruth Chris several times. As usual the food and the service was excellent. Even though it was New Years day and the room was full at no time did we feel rushed. It's the one restaurant I always recommend to my friends.

My husband and I celebrated his birthday here last week. We started out with drinks, a martini and cosmo which were perfectly made. It was a delicious meal, we both had rib eyes which were cooked to perfection. The service was top notch, a small glitch when seated as we were taken to a somewhat secluded side room and requested a different table in the main room. Within minutes we were shown to another which was subsequently sprinkled with Happy Birthday decorations by the maitre d’, a really charming touch. Our server Dana was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Cartwright, a young man setting up and clearing tables nearby, as he worked. We would definitely recommend this location of Ruth’s Chris for any occasion as we saw families, people on dates and others just out for a fantastic meal. Oh and my husband also received a complimentary dessert for his birthday and a card from the staff, nice touch.

Dinner was ok. Steak rare when I ordered it Medium
Adding on 2.00 charged seems so tacky to me. How can one potato dish cost 5:00 more???
Charge more and let people just order what they want
Lovely Resturant but Flemings still has that old fashion
Customer Service even though they too are a chain

Also. I think Ruth CHRIS should have a club
Every resturant here offers something fir coming

Great Resturant for a special occasion

Great experience. Celebrating a birthday. With a party of nine. The staff was very kind & generous with their time & efforts in helping with the special table setting. All was good. Only noticeable thing was the delay in coffee, dessert service & the final check delivery. Separate checks; yes, however the server knew in advance the check arrangements. No major issues, it just caused some restlessness with the table at the end. We’ll be back for the next celebration.

We've been to several Ruths Chris Steak Houses throughout the U.S. and they never fail to impress. This one was equally delightful. From the hand crafted drink menu through the dessert, everything was delicious. Our server was very attentive, but not overly so. It was my husbands birthday so the table was decorated with shiny confetti and a birthday card signed by the entire staff. Just a really fun evening, and I even got to bring a little rib eye home to savor the next day.

We went on thanksgiving at 8pm. My first thought as we waited in the foyer for our table was that the wiring must be bad as the large pendant light hanging there dimmed and brightened repeatedly. As we made our way to the table I took note it was dirty. There was food crumbs and pieces all over the floor. Now I realize it was thanksgiving and we were one of the last reservations. But is this how you present such an expensive restaurant? Too busy to Betty broom?!
Our booth was beside one of the black art deco vases with a bushy artificial plant in it. And this thing was so dusty! I used to be a waitress at ruby Tuesday and the lamps ere dusted at the end of each shift and the managers made us Clean every part of the booths. Not just the table. I began to look around and saw thick dust all around the black molding on the back of the booths. The carpet looked sticky. It just wasn't CLEAN! This quite surprised me. This wasn't just a oh it's busy not clean. This was a hadn't been cleaned in months likely years not clean. We got the thanksgiving menu. It was delicious spare the potatoes. My mashed potatoes are better. These were kinda lack luster. We got vcoffe with our dessert which was very good as well. Just the right amount. As we were getting ourselves together I overheard our waiters teammate telling the booth next to us that they were giving them some free take-home Thanksgiving stuffing and gravy and potatoes and turkey because They have lots of leftover stuff and they were sending everybody home with the care package, well we didn’t get a care package and that really made me mad. Overall it wasn’t a “I’m gonna have to go back to Ruth’s Chris” kind of experience that I was expecting.

Our Thanksgiving lunch was beyond stellar! Our waiter, Tobias, is so knowledgeable about the cuisine that having him serve us is like coming home! Everyone there is amazing- the food is incomparable. Fresh, hot, delicious! We have been here for everyday dining and this was our first holiday experience— but guaranteed it will not be our last! Their gumbo is delicious, their Caesar salad- simply the best! Portions are generous but not overly so— at Ruth’s the emphasis remains in quality ingredients and exceptional service, and they never disappoint!
