Salmon entree was very good, as was crab cake appetizer. Scallops entree slightly over cooked. Sides and desert were very good. Expect to spend $75+/person.

My wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, so we decided to go to a charming place for dinner which for us was and always is Ruth's Chris. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere, professional staff, and EXCELLENT food were perfect for our little celebration. They even gave us a complimentary dessert in honor of our anniversary. We have dined there before and have always been delighted with everything. Thanks to all the staff for helping to make our evening a quiet relaxing one.

Our steaks,soup and salad was wonderful. The authors gratin potatoes were a dismal failure. Our potatoes were semi hard, the cheese sauce, very blah. We've had the au gratin potatoes before and they were to die for...the same can't be said for ours on Tues eve😔The chocolate cake brought for my husband's birthday was FABULOUS as was the creme brulee'. Over all our meal didn't disappoint. Won't be recommending the potatoes though. 👎

We went there to celebrate my youngest daughter's seventeenth birthday. She was very surprised and we were impressed with the special insert in her menu wishing her a Happy 17th Birthday. The food was delicious, as always, and the staff was very attentive and professional. We will be back.

Nice facility, bar is separated from the dining room by a door. So if you want TVs and music or a peaceful dinner, you have options! The staff was wonderful;, polite and responsive to our needs. The food was what you would expect from Ruth Chris; full of flavor and BUTTER! 😬

It was my husbands 60th birthday and we were celebrating it Sunday evening at Ruth’s Chris. Everything was amazing from the appetizers to all of our main courses and concluding with our desserts. Our server was Jim and he did an outstanding job of making our evening wonderful. My husband said his steak was the best he’s ever had. My Chilean Sea was delicious and all the sides were top notch. We all had a wonderful evening and our thanks goes to the chefs, or servers and the staff.

This restaurant has lost something. The overall quality of the food has declined over the past few years. Very poor value for the high prices. Steaks were OK but not great, as would be expected for the price. Steak knives are dull and useless. Sides and salad were just OK. Wine by the glass was overpriced for the quality. Service was annoying. Ambiance was unpleasant. Tables are too crowded together and it's too dark to see what you're eating. We will not go there again, and it used to be our favorite place.
