    Orland, our server, was AMAZING! We have had him before and he remembered us and is just incredible every time. He even checked the back when we asked for specific bourbons that weren't on the menu. The whole staff is just awesome every time we dine there, and they always make the occasion we are celebrating special.

    Food is expensive but excellent and well worth the price. Our waitress was just the best; letting us talk and take our time but refilling water and the food was hot and delicious.

    The food was very good but the portions were small. The service was very attentive but we felt rushed and food was served back to back. I believe the three from point of order till finish was 30 minutes as if we were going to catch a show or going to homecoming dance. As usual, the steaks were done to perfection. When spending $300 for 2, I’d like to feel less commoditized.

    The waiter was terrible. Repeatedly called a woman "Sir" and was perplexed looking when I corrected him 3 times causing the person embarrassment. He failed to clear our appetizer plates and started dropping the main and I had to ask him to take away the appetizer plates! Two items had to be sent back because they were cold. And all of this on an 80th birthday celebration. Very disappointing .

    Worst Ruth’s Chris I have ever been to. I can’t believe that this restaurant is part of RC! Service was nice but ambiance was awful. Water was warm! One of my guest’s meal came out on ‘burned’ plate—shrimp was rock hard and steak (filet) was ALL fatty! Cesar salad lettuce was limp and dressing very different from any other RC restaurant. So so dissatisfied- actually just sent the shrimp & steak back for my guest and only refunded $40. RC needs to investigate this establishment!!

    Rice didn’t come in my gumbo, but it was brought out after asking for it. My steak was cooked medium instead of medium well, but they brought me a hot plate to continue cooking it. The lobster taste was “off” on this last visit. The best part was our server…she’s great!

    Steaks were average at best. The bread was amazing as well as the salad. It was great service although it felt like she was scripted. For a weeks worth of groceries def not worth it. I did love how hot the food was. We also had lobster bisque and it tasted like almond oil or something that shouldn’t be in there

    We love Ruth’s Chris and dine here often. The service has always been exceptional. The most recent dinner and experience was different than all past times. My husbands lobster tail was tough and not hot,(butter was placed on top and it did not melt). Although they were out of the bottle of champagne that I ordered off the drink menu, I paid for separate, smaller bottles that were all brought out in a wine bucket to keep cold. Thank god for that, as the rest of the table sat with empty cocktails throughout our entire night. Our server took our dinner order an hour into us being seated. The rest of the food was great. The service was not.

    Lobster bisque was absolutely cold, tasted horrible but i was so hungry i ate it and the crusted pecan sweet potatoes were overbearing way too sweet. I asked for a side of bernaise sauce and they told me no because they closed the kitchen right after we received our food. Bad service for this. Waitress came over too often trying to rush us out with food. They should not take reservations at 10 PM if the management allows everyone to rush and leave.

    Excellent dinning experience from walking in the door and being greeted by friendly staff, to being seated for cocktails and dinner at the bar. Rachelle the bartender was so nice and attentive which made my experience so enjoyable, not to mention she made great cocktails! Great ambiance in the bar, and Food was the Exceptional!!

    Food was great and Christopher was very friendly but atmosphere was not great. Our candle wasn’t lit and the wall I was facing had screws in it. Parking was easy but I didn’t see valet and I was with my 80 year old father with a bad knee. Definitely not my favorite Ruth Chris. I would have been just as happy staying home eating a steak.
