As always, the steaks at Ruth’s are the best in the industry. Consistently excellent. Already trying to figure when to go go back again.

It was a five star experience!!! Our waiter Domic was exceptional, very attentive and informative about the menu. Offered great suggestions as well. Also the young men who worked with him on 08/08/19. Unfortunately, I did not get their names as Domic was our main waiter. I can't wait to return for another amazing experience!

Great service, good updated interior. Steak was overcooked and vegetable were just warm. The Tuna was fantastic. All the meat was too salty but served at the right temp. Overall good place to eat.

The staff was awesome and the food was really good except for the creamed spinach. That was not good at all. I had the ribeye which was good but not $52 good. The seasoning was great and it was cooked perfectly. The sides come family style and we choose the spinach and the sweet potatoes. The potatoes were good but too sweet for me with the brown sugar and pecan topping but my husband like them. We also had the tomato and mozzarella salad which was really good. Dessert was cheesecake and creme brulee and both were just ok. I also had a cappuccino that was good.
Overall it was an experience but not worth a $200+ bill at the end of it. I can say we went and had a good night but I can also find other places that don't set us back so much money. I would definitely give the staff an A+.

Very overpriced! Great food but seriously not worth the money. Decided to take dessert to go and waited 30 mins. Lobsters Mac was good but not worth $20.

I always make it a point to dine at Ruths Chris during Charlotte Restaurant Week, and they never disappoint. The service is so wonderful, warm, and friendly. Our server's name was Matt and he was wonderful as he took very good care of my table. As I said, it was Charlotte Restaurant Week, but that did not negate the food, which was wonderful. I had the King's Feast which consisted of the house salad, the 14 oz New York strip(I upgraded to a lobster tail) and dessert. The lobster tail was seasoned to perfection it was so darn good. The house salad was tasty and they have the best ranch salad dressing and the steak was exactly how I wanted medium. The sides were delicious as well. I had a glass of Moscato and a glass of Rose and my bill was less than $90 dollars but I had a gift card so I only came out of pocket a little over $30 dollars. So in all, great dining experience.

This was my first experience eating at Ruth's Chris. I was so delighted with everything! The hostesses were friendly and the waiter, Stuart, was excellent. We were served promptly and the food was delicious.

I can truthfully say that I will be returning to dine at your establishment.

Going during restaurant week is always a gamble. So many people that service usually suffers and the presentation does as well. Food was excellent.

It’s restaurant week so it’s not fair to judge a restaurant during this week. It is probably difficult for a restaurant to maintain its quality with this type of volume. My appetizer was phenomenal, the crab stack. Everything else was average. My fish was way too fishy tasting and smelling. It was actually questionable in terms of its freshness, but I am not one to send food back so, I just didn’t eat it. The service is top notch, it made for a perfect evening that our server and everyone working at their restaurant was able to give me the best service I’ve ever received with the amount of volume they were handling. Excellent job when it comes to service.

We love Ruth's Chris uptown. All of the wood gives it a elegant yet warm atmosphere. As always the service was top notch. They offer our favorite wine, Burly Cabernet. And no one should ever leave before they have the sweet potato casserole.

Love Ruth Chris generally. This experience was just under normal due to the noise level and
food was not cooked as perfect as normal.

Service was extremely slow. We go every restaurant week and also during no specials. Service is always supreme. This time it felt like they were understaffed. It took over 15 min to bring us water, we had to ask for bread because we were starving and we never receive it. Typically our courses come out back to back. This time we had really long wait times between courses. The chicken with my main entree was much tougher than previously and our sides were cold.

Usually this location is great. This time way completely mediocre. They had not reserved the wine room as they had promised to do a week in advance. The waiter (Nic) made awkward/ uncomfortable attempts at humor, rarely visited our table, and seemed to lack knowledge about the menu. The blue cheese crust was originally forgotten from my steak, which resulted in an over done filet by the time I cut into it.

The wine room is phenomenal, but be sure to quadruple check with the location that they have it reserved for you.

We went during Queen's Feast of Charlotte. Over the years these restaurants have really started to phone in the food during this time. I had the upgraded 11oz filet medium rare. It was slightly overcooked and it had very little flavor. My wife had the 8oz and it was much better. I know the employees hate restaurant week and they do their best to be polite to everyone. I was just disappointed in our food. If I were to have gone to dinner on a regular week and got the same lifeless steak I would have immediately returned it. We probably will skip Ruth's Chris next time.

This particular location use to be our Restaurant week go to. After this last time (after about 6) I can confidently say I didn’t feel the quality was as good as it should’ve been or has been in the past. All good things must come to an end and I hate that especially since this has been a long running favorite.

We love this restaurant! We do Queen's Feast during restaurant week, wine dinners, and other occasions. The manager and the servers are great, and especially Steve. He accommodates my gluten intolerance and is so attentive especially when we bring my 86 year old mother.

We had a great dinner at Ruth’s Chris! Our steaks were all amazing and cooked to perfection. We all selected from Ruth’s restaurant week menu, which was an outstanding value. The only let down was the side dishes, they were not our favorites, outside of that, the other courses and steaks were amazing.

Another note worthy part of our evening was the outstanding service from Clayton, our server. He was very polite, well spoken, helpful, and attentive without being over bearing. I would certainly recommend asking for him, as he really enhanced our experience. I will be requesting his service again by name for all future business meetings.

The SouthPark location is so much better. When you undercook a steak, offer to heat the sides while the steak returns to the kitchen. Better yet. Bring fresh sides that aren't cold.

Underwhelming experience again at Ruth's Chris uptown. So many better choices.

Always had a great experience at Ruth's Chris and this visit was no where on the level I've received in the past. It took over 45 minutes to get our meals during a lunch visit. This is totally unacceptable for an Uptown Charlotte high end restaurant.
