It was a perfectly decent experience, but for a $240 bill I do expect a little more. The service was definitely good. Our table was extremely close to the next table, such that it was impossible not to listen in on their conversation and vice-versa. The bread was dry and unpleasant. Our entrees were good and their creamed spinach is what made me go there—I remembered it from a past visit (in Seattle) and it was just as good this visit. No huge complaints, but at that price point it doesn’t compare favorably to other restaurants in the area.

The staff is unfriendly. No complements are served with the entry. It is all allacarte and very expensive. Menu is pricey for the quality and quantity of food. Service was also slow. It took long to get the food served.

The food at this Ruth's Chris was and always is great. Unfortunately, they seem to be letting the place go and it is overwork, and not very comfortable seating. The service os moderate at best, and they seem to have a great deal of difficulty finding reliable,friendly people for the front desk.

My wife and I had surf and turf entries. The calamari appetizer was different, but was addictive and good! The lobster tails were succulent, and the butter dipping sauce was delicious! The asparagus was tasty. The big disappointment were the filets. Although they were cooked to perfection and very tender, they were the blandest filets that my wife and I have ever been served. I'm not quite sure why this was the case, but it ruined the meal for us, for all practical purposes, that was the reason we went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in the first place.

The temperature of the steak was inconsistent, and one was slightly overdone while the other underdone. We sent the undercooked one back for a correction, which turned out ok. Given this, I'd say the higher than normal prices aren't deserved, but that's just my opinion.

Waited 10 minutes for seating with a reservation. That wasn’t too awful, but once we sat down, all we had for 23 minutes was water before even our drink & entrée order was taken. I was extremely specific about my allergy to spicy peppers and was still served Sriracha with one of my appetizers that forced me to take a Benadryl. Upon receiving my steak, the temperature was incorrect. I’m bilingual and could hear some wait staff’s genuine comments & unfavorable opinions about other patrons. With that in mind, I didn’t want the remainder of my already mediocre service quality and food integrity compromised. My husband just wanted to leave at that point, but I didn’t want to battle the Valentine’s/Weekend Dinner crowd at another restaurant. He didn’t even order dessert and we were celebrating two additional special occasions, which I aforementioned to management when placing the reservation, and unsurprisingly went acknowledged. 😢 I must say that the only reason my gratuity was considerable was due to the affable nature of the support staff (i.e. hostess, bartender, and three food runners). We’ve frequented other wonderful Ruth’s Chris establishments several times, but this sub-par experience has been the worst and far from world-class hospitality and soiled our holiday. 💔

The steaks and sides, as always, were great. Is RC more expensive than other steak houses in the area? Yes. But we don't eat at steak houses that often (usually when one of the kids come home from college) and we would rather pay, what $10 to $15 more, for RC steaks.

I dropped a star this time because of the service at this visit. I think it was because it was only my daughter (under age 21) and me. Cocktail and wine tab was just not going to be that high. I noticed the lack of service immediately.

We had the signature bone in New York Steak with au gratin potatoes. The steak was a perfect medium rare and the potatoes were very good. Our server was very attentive but not intrusive. All this made for a perfect dinner experience. I highly recommend this steak house.

The array of salads was lovely, the food served efficiently and graciously, the entrees and desssert very nice. Not receiving coin change when cash for the bill is presented is disturbing, here, as well as, at other restaurants....especially when this means that bill is rounded up as opposed to down. THIS gives the term of being Nickled and Dimed to death relevancy.

As always, the steak was absolutely amazing, but our group was somewhat disappointed with the service. It took a very long time for our waiter to take our order after presenting us with the menus, and although all four individuals in our party ordered the filet mignonette without the mushroom sauce, two of us received filets with sauce. When we pointed out the error, our waiter asked those two individuals, “are you allergic to mushrooms?” implying that if not, they should just eat the filets with mushroom sauce. We found that to be rude and beside the point. To his credit, two filets without sauce were brought out shortly afterwards, but the experience just wasn’t the typical level of excellent service we usually expect and at Ruth’s Chris.

We went for restaurant week, so the experience was probably altered by a higher influx of customers as well as a more systematic preparation of meals. The food - although pre-prepared and served on very hot plates, tex-mex franchise style - was tasty. The wait staff seemed annoyed as if forced to be there. Very slow and inattentive service. We weren't given a wine list, and they couldn't find one for us, so they brought us a handful of menus asking us to take them apart to see if the wine list was hidden behind the restaurant week additional pages. We also ate half the dinner with a dimmer light because our candle was out. I feel attention to detail was nonexistant when preparing for restaurant week, and it fell as though the clients coming in for this event were snubbed as a lower class of customer.

We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. It was excellent - one of the best such offerings we have had. And the service was very pleasant - not rushed like we have found at other restaurants during Restaurant week.

I love Ruth's Chris, and have been do tons of different locations - all are normally wonderful. Our experience here was less than the norm, and I'm not sure if that has to do with restaurant week or what. The food was average, and the dessert tasted old. The noise level was extremely high. It was really odd. We was very disappointing.

The food tasted good and was well presented. However, I asked for my filet to be medium well done and it came medium rare. Due to time limitations on my part did not have time to send back and instead exchanged it with my husband whose steak came cooked more.

Our server was not very good. We ordered 2 glasses of wine before we ordered our appetizers but it came after the appetizers were served. I know the place were busy because it’s Christmas eve, and we come here every year of Christmas eve, it’s our family tradition. We never had this bad service in any Ruth’s Chris, and I think this was our fourth or fifth times in this location. My daughter said her steak was not even hot inside and you can tell because the butter on top was not even melted. We told the server but my daughter refused to get another one because she was hungry. We didn’t get our meal after an hour and our drinks were not refilled in timely manner. Someone came to our and apologized about the food because we told the server about it. They didn’t charge my daughter’s steak. But we have been coming to Ruth’s Chris so many times and never had bad service and bad food. Never expected a bad service and bad food in this kind of restaurant, my expectations are very when it comes to Ruth’s Chris, so disappointed. And also I did not know that the place allows dog (not a service dog).

Food was wonderful, but the service was atrocious. 20 minutes to fill our drink order after we were seated. Server tried to “sell” us dessert when they were included in the 3 course meal special.

Worst experience ever at a Ruth’s Chris and it all came down to service. Managers take note

I would recommend Ruth's Cris on the basis of past experiences more than this recent experience. I don't know if it was due to the fact that it was Christmas Eve and was full or if it's trending this way. After inquiring, our two side dishes arrived when we were nearly done with our entrees and were lukewarm. We were offered free dessert which was a nice gesture however it took so long to arrive we were nearly done with our cappuccino. The food itself was pretty good but the timing and the temperature of the side dishes drove me from 4 stars to 3. I've had great experiences here and at other locations in the past so I'll call it a fluke and try again.
