Don't go on Sunday! I had a 5pm reservation with my husband for a date night, and they were out of their lobster bisque as well as 80% of the steaks they had on their menu. Had I known I would have chosen a different day. The best part of the meal was the lobster voodoo appetizer. Undecided if we will give it another try.

It has been awhile since we have dined at Ruth’s Chris. I felt the portion sizes for salad and sides were decreased and unfortunately both steaks needed to go back to be cooked longer

We dined here on New Year’s Eve. We were seated in the lower level. I’m sure they were trying to accommodate the extra people wanting to eat there, but it just lacked the ambience of the main dining area. Our server took a very long time to greet us and wasn’t very attentive. We sat with empty water glasses and drink glasses most of the meal. We both ordered from the part of the menu where the salad, side, and meal were included. We frequently order from that section when we dine at Ruth’s Chris and have always received a dessert as part of it. There was no mention of a dessert by our server. It was just an “okay” experience.

I have been fortunate to dine at Ruth's Chris at more than 25 locations nationally, multiple times at several locations. RC has set a high bar and one knows exactly what to expect regaridng the food and service.

Unfrotunatley that was not the case at this location. We had made reservations well in advance for New Years Eve.

The waitress asked if we were interested in an appetizer, we said yes. She also asked if we woukd like place our order at the same time. We hesitated to order the main course until she assured us that she would pace the courses and not rush the service.

We had just received the apetizer and within minutes an assoiate arrived with our salad. I informed the associate that we just received the appetizer and asked that he take the salad and bring it back at a more appropreate time. He was very accomodating.

Within another few miutes a different associate arrived with the salad, we had not yet finished the appetizer. I mentioned the situation to the waitress, she said that was her fault she should managed the pacing better.

I had ordered a medium temperature filet. The filet lacked the usual RC butter/spice flavor. Further, the filet was essentially "raw" in the center. I did not finish the fillet and I mentioned this and showed the waitress the remaining part of the filet.

The waitress did make a monetary adjustment for my filet. Although appreciated my overall experience was dissappointing.

Let me start by saying our server was absolutely wonderful! She took great care of us and left us with a desire to return. The ambience was nice, very well kept and up to date. Food was delicious overall. With the exception of the kids meals. We ordered kids filets, to be cooked medium and they came out very well done (very dry and chewy). Because the kids were hungry we didn’t ask for them to be re-made but given that Ruth’s Chris is a steak house I would think that cooking a steak would be their one area of expertise. So I was a little mystified by this.

Food at Ruth's Chris is good, but the Chopped salad is a disappointment. Not sure why there is fried onions in it. Most people like a salad that is healthy. Fresh and crisp. The steak was very good

Ruth’s Chris is my favorite restaurant so I wanted to take my friends there, sadly the service was terrible. The food was great as always but our experience was really ruined by the poor service. With how much Ruth’s Chris costs, the service should be at least good. I was disappointed.

It was okay. One would expect exceptional food and service for their price points and reputation but it was just okay. The hostesses were quite stand-offish. Not a very warm welcome besides holding the door open.
And then the bartender asked…’what can I do for you’ …when I took a seat at the bar…??? Would I walk into a restaurant for anything else besides drinks and food?

Very disappointed, wanted to combine two reservations of 4 to be at a table of 8 and were told they could not accommodate that. A room with a table for 8 sat empty the entire time we had to sit at separate tables apart from one another.

First off, we knew dinner would be expensive so no complaints about spending expectations. We had a party of 4 and our bill was a bit over $500 pre-tip with 2 appetizers. The stuffed mushrooms were the best I've had anywhere yet while the jumbo shrimp was average. We all ordered steaks, all were very good though not exceptional, except one was undercooked. They fixed that quickly and all was well. Expect the vegetables to be crispy ( our party had broccoli and asparagus as side choices)...barely warmed and almost raw, not steamed much at all. You may like that, we didn't. The cremeni mushrooms were cold when they came out but I didn't bother to send them back. The flavor of the mushrooms was excellent and in our opinion, the star of the whole meal. Our waiter was on top of everything and we didn't have to wait for drink refills at all. For the experience, if you're looking for 5 star service, and atmosphere matters the most to you and don't care about price, go for it. We've never been and were mainly looking for the experience so we had a nice evening. If you're looking for the best meal you've ever had or a good value for the money, you'll likely leave a bit disappointed.
