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.

You expect Ruth's Chris to be excellent, and it was, but what made it over the top was our server, Martina. She made a 5 star experience... well, 6 stars!

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!

I wasn’t initially going to send a review. It was my first time at the restaurant so I contacted them directly by email to express my concerns. I was expecting someone to contact me about my experience there, but it never happened. My wife and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary. Ruth Chris was recommended to us as having the best steaks in the area and my wife is a huge fillet fan. We were seated next to a demanding and noisy party of five and to our server’s defense they demanded most of his attention. Things were going okay until our server asked to take our dinner order and we requested to order a salad and delay ordering dinner. The salad order came out promptly but the server didn’t return to tame our dinner order until about 25 minutes later. The food order was brought out by another server and our waiter didn’t return until he brought us the dessert menu and that was a very long time. We were in the restaurant for nearly two hours which was too much. My wife ordered a fillet which appeared to be a bit thin and she said that it wasn’t bad but had some gristle in it. I ordered the barbequed shrimp which were served in mashed potatoes. The shrimp were good but both the size of the shrimp and the portion size were too small. The sides were ala cart and were $11.00 ($11.00 for a side order of mashed potatoes seemed a bit much). They did put “Happy Anniversary” on the menu and the dessert was complimentary which was a nice touch. Our total for the dinner was just under $200.00. The overall experience at the restaurant was just average. We expected a lot better experience considering their reputation and the price. Our main reason for going to Ruth Chris was for the steaks. I’m not a steak eater but my wife said that her fillet wasn’t nearly as good as what’s she’d had at some of the other steak houses that we’ve eaten. We won’t be returning.

Made reservations on open table. Mentioned that it was our birthdays & anniversary.
Our menu came to us & when opened the header wished us both Happy Birthday & Anniversary .
Very unique touch made us feel very special & got to take the menu home for souvenir.
Dinner was GREAT. Steak & lobster tail can't beat the price or taste.
Simply Spectacular

Our first time there, we went for Thanksgiving Dinner, the food was spectacular the service was good, it was a bit to noisy hard to hear conversation at our own table, and a bit to dark hard to read menus especially for older guests. Otherwise we really enjoyed our experience.

I have always loved Ruth Chris. It has been my favorite steak house for a very long time. This time it was very different. The steak didnt have the great flavor as it had always had and my steak was more tough than usual. The steak always used to melt in my mouth this time not so much. I was a bit disappointed. Everything else was good. But for as expensive the steak is there i was hoping for more than we got.

Karen was our server and very good. Went for my husband's bday so splurged on the nice meal. Wedge salad was my favorite (generous with the blue cheese). Steaks were done very well. Very minor thing is that the restaurant was a bit drafty. Would go again!

Ruth’s Chris has been our go to special occasion restaurant for years. The food, ambiance and service has always been top notch. We were so happy with our experiences at this restaurant that for the first time we decided to bring another couple with us as it was our friend and my birthdays and we were really excited to share our favorite restaurant with our very special friends. The food was awesome as usual but our service experience was the most disappointing we have ever experienced. The check in up front was totally botched as they never updated the computer to show that we checked in so we were called 45 minutes late. Then the girl proceeded to tell us that she hates Open Table because it doesn’t work correctly with their computer system?? Our waitress was totally overwhelmed with too many tables and ended up taking it out on our table. I really don’t blame her as she was responsible for many tables and one of them was a table of about 16 people that decided to change their bill to separate checks. She just didn’t have enough help to get the job done. The only problem with that is that when you decide to go to an upscale restaurant like Ruth’s Chris, you expect to get a upscale experience. We will pick a different restaurant for our special occasions in the future.

A great dinner place or a special time place- and it's in South Barrington ( not downtown Chicago!). Drinks are large, creative and strong. Food is amazing quality. The steaks are smothered in butter (!) on a sizzling plate. Dessert was creamy cheese cake. It was served with class in a room with ambiance. Prices are high- but we expected that. It's worth the investment for the experience. And- if you need a business classy place in the suburbs, put this on your list. We will return.
