Our waiter Dario was very good interacting with my wife and I and made the meal quite fun. His attentiveness was extremely good, and his suggestions were spot on.

The steaks are the best I have ever had which keeps us coming back. The prices are a little high which I accept only because of the quality of the meat and the excellent service. We are treated very respectfully and are able to enjoy our dinner at our own requested pace.

New Years Eve. Had reservation and was seated right when we arrived. Server was great, I have celiac disease (gluten free) and server was very knowledgeable and they had a separate gluten free menu. Food tasted great and was cooked as you would expect from a higher end steakhouse. Overall good food and experience

What a disappointment for Christmas! Steaks were over cooked and courses were very slow to come out of the kitchen. At the table of four next to us, only two guests received their entrees. The other two waited for a half hour because of a mistake in the kitchen, while the first two awkwardly picked at their meals. We have enjoyed Ruth’s Chris in the past but caution that it is not up to par when busy.

I've always enjoyed this place until today. Ran out of lobster tail which was our primary reason we chose here. I asked for more ice for water was told they ran out of ice. We ended up ordering chicken And it was so dry and hard it was absolutely horrible. Our server really didn't seem to care. The side dishes came out cold as well. It was very busy and it was Christmas. The server was busy and negative. when I stated I was disappointed at no lobster she stated " be thankful you can at least spend the day with your family and not working" Just wow. Horrible experience, horrible meal.

Kitchen was overwhelmed on Christmas. Arrived at 5:30pm, at 7pm we still did not have our meal with very nice server apologizing up and down along with manager, but clearly the restaurant was not prepared, with only reservations, I believe, they had a known amount of patrons for the day. Very disappointing.

This is our 3rd Christmas with Genna as our server. She is our absolute favorite. It's because of Genna we come back year after year, as well as request her during other holidays. Christmas at Ruth's Chris with Genna as our server is a family tradition.

Made reservations for Christmas Eve back in March. Didn’t even get seated in main dining room. Banquet room was loud and cold. They got my daughter’s order wrong and finally brought it when everyone else was done eating. My steak was warm, not hot. We were there for over 2 1/2 hours!

We went to Ruth's Chris last Christmas Eve and our meals were awesome. My wife said, this is where we are going every Christmas Eve. So, I made reservation for this Christmas Eve. Well, we were very disappointed. The food was no were near the quality that it was the year before. We paid a premium price for what? Being disappointed. We will need to choose a different restaurant for next year Christmas Eve. Bummer ☹️

We are big fans but not the best steak this time around. Ordered the petite ribeye. Not sure what they gave me but it wasn’t that. We will go back for sure. One bad steak out of many will not deter us from this very good restaurant.

One of my favorite places disappointed tonight. Server was less than attentive or pleasant. Lobster Mac n cheese was over cooked. Steak over cooked when trying to get servers attention was ignored the first time and the second time received a “I’m busy serving someone else” comment. Biggest issue besides food cooking issue was server was rude and disinterested in our table. Bad badwas bad attitude. The only positive service comment is the valet guy was good. Soooooo disappointing

Ruth's Chris doesn't disappoint. The ambiance is very nice and a quiet conversation is possible. The service is top notch and the food is always good. My husband got the bone-in filet and my daughter got the petite filet and their meat was cooked perfectly. We had mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts on the side and both were great. I would recommend Ruth's Chris for a special occasion.

With the holidays around the corner, Ruth's Chris in the bar was very crowded so service was slower than usual. Their Happy Hour specials are great including fantastic burgers and zucchini fries.

We eat here quit often but have to say the last few times we have been very disappointed. Waiter hardly came over to check on us . We ordered
a whole lobster tail this time and the last and barely got 4 small bites out of it . Not what you expect for what you pay for .

The service was top notch, from the friendly hostess to the Manager Dan who greeted us, the server Stacey was outstanding in her service and her recommendations, and the bar staff with Devan and all were friendly and made our evening enjoyable. Also the hostess took a picture and gave it to us to keep as a memento of our special evening, what a nice touch! The bone in filet and lamb chops along with all the sides were absolutely perfect! Thank you all very much!
