We had a great time coming back into the restaurant world after being home for weeks. Chaz did an amazing job and service was spot on. Thanks for making our time special for the birthday boy.

Brittni was an incredible server and we thoroughly enjoyed her service. Everything we had was great, from the drinks to the entrees to the desserts. Jessica and jasmine were two of the managers who also checked in on us throughout the meal which was also appreciated. Will definitely come back for future birthday dinners and special occasions!

Love Ruth’s Chris! The food is always amazing. I had a filet and it was cooked perfectly. The sides are always outstanding. Eli was our waiter and was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. He made suggestions and was pleasant to talk to. Always love going there for dinner. Being into Art I think some paintings on the wall would be nice.

I've never had a bad meal at Ruth's Chris. They make you feel welcome when you come in. The staff is polite and knowledgeable, and our primary server was very friendly and helpful. The food is always really tasty and, if I really want a steak or want to take someone for a great steak, this is the place to go. It is a pricey place, granted, but we all know this, and the quality is fantastic. They have a nice fixed menu for 3 courses too, and your portions are still relatively enormous. If you're looking for an excellent restaurant, this is a good choice.

They were having a Mardi Gras party (downstairs) but that made both the restaurant and the parking lot very busy--this despite a 5:30 reservation. Food was fine and if anything the waitress was a little too attentive (not even giving us a minute before returning to the table to get feedback on the food.)

Ordered ribeye, medium. Came out well done and swimming in fat. Offered to remake the steak and came out rare, still swimming in fat. Was told that it would continue to cook if I waited a few minutes. Mashed potatoes were runny and swimming in a pool of butter. Lobster portion was very small. Drink refills were very slow. Multiple people assisting server led to confusion, missed items and duplication. ..... The sweet potato casserole was awesome.

My Husband and I went for Valentines Day. We were not impressed with the small portions, and sky high prices. Also, according to the dress code, casual attire is not allowed, but we saw basketball heresies and sweatpants. Why have a dress code you won’t enforce?
In summary, the service was great, but you do NOT get what you pay for here.

Our server, Eli, was very attentive even though it was quite busy for Valentine's Day. The filet was delicious and the special raspberry cheesecake -- to DIE FOR!!!!! We really enjoyed our Valentine's Day lunch and will return for another meal as there were several other mouth-watering dishes we'd like to try.

We always come here for anniversaries & birthdays, they do a great job! This time my steak was over cooked. The waitress took it back and had the kitchen prepare another one. She apologized and thanked me for letting her know! The second steak was perfect and tasted amazing!! We recently joined the Ruth’s Regulars program and are glad we did!

I would highly recommend this as a special occasion restaurant . There is no getting around the fact that food and service are over top - but so is the bill. The noise level and ambience was not five stars because of parents who don't control small children. Keep up the good work.

Food is pricy but man oh man is it good! We went for a much needed date night and will go again in the future. Sides were shareable for 2 of us. Service was wonderful. We were seated near the entrance to the kitchen and could hear conversations from there and the tables close to us. But it wasn’t bothersome at all, though we’re pretty easygoing. The plates come out at a temp of 500 degrees, so be careful not to burn your mouth on your first bite and ruin the rest of your meal! :)

Our server Ashley was exceptional. She was there to make sure we had a good time, not just to bring us food. We had a wonderful time. The food and ambiance were exactly what we were looking for. We sat in the bar where it was more lively than the dining room.

Service was just awful. Took 20 minutes before our server cam to get our drink order. Waited another 30 minutes to place our order. Took food another 45 minutes to come out. Took another 20 minutes to get dishes cleared after we finished eating and another 20 minutes to get the check.
Food was good. I ordered my steak medium rare. Are out medium but was tender and delicious.

My husband and I took our sons for their first experience to celebrate their successful college semesters and Christmas. Service began well, however after our meal was delivered, we sat finished with our food for 40 minutes staring at our leftovers. Our server and his assistant did not come back to check on our beverages or to box up our leftovers, let alone offer the dessert menu. We sat for a total of an hour without any assistance. Mind you, we were in the wine cellar room with only two other tables. We have always had excellent service (we dine there once every 3-4 months as a treat). We were so disappointed and when the manager came to ask about our service I was so angry that I wasn’t able to express my frustration to him as I did not want to take away from others who were dining near as to not interrupt their experience. Biggest turn off was when we were given a “sorry, we are very busy tonight”. I can be patient and understanding when I see servers and staff all running around and at least acknowledge that you are there, but not at all what we saw happening. Don’t make excuses, make it right. As we were handing the server the bill (which we had to ask the manager for) he says, “oh, no dessert this evening?” Really!?! After an hour, no thanks. Very disappointed in the service.

The food was great. Service wasn’t the greatest. We waited 15 min for someone to come and get our drink order. It seemed like everyone other than our waiter was serving us.

We made an 8pm reservation on Opentable for Christmas Eve dinner. When the restaurant called to confirm, they left a message that we would be in the bar and if we weren’t ok with that, they had no other tables available and they wouldn’t be able to honor the reservation. I called back and let them know we were fine with being in the bar. We arrived at 7:45pm and were told our table wasn’t ready and to wait at the bar. At that time we observed there were two open tables in the bar that hadn’t been bussed. We sat at the bar for a half hour, with those 2 unbussed tables growing to 3 yet every time we checked back they said our table was unavailable. Once we finally were sat at 8:35pm, we weren’t even apologized to for the late seating. When we asked what the issue was, they said we requested the bar and that they had plenty of tables open in the dining room and we could have been sat much earlier. We were disappointed in the lack of communication and the fact that the hostess blamed us for that versus trying to remedy the situation.
