My husband and I went to Ruth Chris for date night and we had the pleasure of having Carson as our waiter. He did an excellent job with being very attentive to our needs, for example I request sautee' onions and he wasn't sure if they had any, well he went to the Manager Chad and made it happen, not only did he get me my onions but he also sent the Manager Chad to the table to check on us! The food was just as good if not better, if that was possible! Ruth Chris is by far my favorite restaurant and this experience solidify why this restaurant will continue to be my favorite!

My husband had the bone in filet and he loved it. I had a small filet and I didn't eat much of it. I've never had a tough filet before until this one. I took it home for my dog. Also, we ordered two cocktails and we couldn't finish those either. This was our second time here. The first time everything was great! Unfortunately we were disappointed this time.

Such a wonderful spot to ring in the New Year with friends! Our server Carson was attentive, knowledgeable, and made great recommendations despite having a full section on a very busy evening. The food was perfectly prepared and the lobster Mac & cheese is to die for. The manager Eric recommended an amazing wine to pair with our meal that everyone loved and the bar staff helped to pick a special nightcap to enjoy at the bar while we rang in 2018. A very memorable evening and we can’t wait to go back for our next special occasion!

I usually don't write reviews, but in this case, we had a date night out, and decided to go to a nicer steakhouse. Unfortunately, the dining room was pretty empty, and we were sat in a table for 2 about 2 feet from another table. The service started great, then went downhill. My $50 filet was undercooked severely, and I had to send it back. Coffee was brought to my wife, which she didn't order, before the entree. Then we were asked if we wanted to see the desert menu before our meals came? After finishing, we had to wait at least 20 min for the server to come back. Honestly, the person that was on top of it all was the guy at the end that boxed up our meals, and got a new loaf of bread for us. Conclusion - if you want a nice night out, and a good steak and service, seek elsewhere!

Our family loves Ruths Chris and believe it is the best steak anywhere. We do not go often because of price, and so it is very special when we do. We went for our family holiday night out. Unfortunately, 2 of our steaks were not cooked as ordered. I was so disappointed that mine was overcooked. And no one came to check in time. So they came as we were finishing, and I filled up on sides and too late for new steak. They supposedly made it up by a dessert platter, but we were not going to get desserts, except one person, and she was going to order something different. So really, that did not really make up for the steak, which is what we go there for. In the end, I really missed the steak I was so looking forward to. I was disappointed.

The food was delicious and prepared on point, however our lead server was awful. During our entire meal, we maybe saw him 3 or 4 times and each time he couldn’t have seemed more miserable or like he wanted to be anywhere else. I typically will look past this at other restaurants (being a server myself in college) however, when you are paying as much as you do at Ruth’s Chris, you are paying not only for the food, but for the experience. We were there for a friend’s birthday and tried to make the best of the other aspects of the meal to make up for our flat and absent server. It is almost a week later and I am still incredibly disappointed in our experience.

The food was outstanding. Unfortunately our server repeatedly made mistakes and was not very attentive. The drinks took nearly 20 minutes to arrive. I ordered a Maker's Manhattan which was initially brought to me as a Maker's on the rocks and when it was sent back something else was brought that was not my drink order which I drank to avoid further issues. We ordered green beans and mashed potatoes. Instead of receiving that we received two orders of green beans which then took more time to remedy. As far as ambiance, one particular table of 6 was exceptionally obnoxious and clearly drunk. Off color remarks were made loudly about my wife while I was in the restroom and we were bothered by the same man again later on in the night when he approached our table and made some kind of remark about dropping his wallet by our table which was 10 feet from his. This upset my wife and put quite a damper on our evening.

Asked for a quiet intimate booth during reservation. Got the opposite. NY strip was the poorest cut of meat I've ever had at a Ruth's Chris- very disappointing. Did not have the one side we wanted- brussel sprouts. Creamed spinach we were talked to as a replacement was served cold.

We have been big fans of RC in past. I think we'll skip this location going forward.

Disappointing.

We have visited the Southpark location and enjoyed it years ago but this was our first visit to the Uptown location. Service was very disappointing beginning with the wine/drink selections. Our first two choices from the printed menu for white wines were no longer available. When we inquired about the limited selections of white wines, our server responded by saying "This is a steak house. We serve more red wines". I mentioned that I am a vegetarian and don't usually drink red wine, he replied "You are at the wrong restaurant". Our guest ordered surf and turf and never received the lobster. When the server came by much later to check on us, we had completed our meal. He seemed surprised that the lobster had not been delivered. We also received a side item which we did not order and asked for it to be removed from the bill. Those clearing the tables were so intent on doing their job well, they removed my bread plate (with a piece of bread on it) without asking permission to do so. We all expected better service from this restaurant.

We arrived for our reservation and were excited to get a parking spot directly across from the entrance. We were greeted at the door and promptly taken to a small table for 2. I was freezing at the table to the point of being uncomfortable ( I am NEVER cold) and asked the waiter why it was so cold. He said that it was a draft from the front door, and did not offer to move us even though there were plenty of empty tables. He quickly offered a recommendation of a $92 bottle of wine, no thank you, and then they were out of the bottle that we did order. My husband ordered his steak medium, but it came out almost blue. By the time they brought it back, I was completely finished eating, and yet there was no adjustment of any kind to our bill. If you are a steak house, you have to be able to cook steak properly! We ordered the brussel sprouts with bacon, but they were swimming in bacon grease and completely inedible. The waiter saw that we didn't eat any of it , but didn't ask if there was anything wrong. Overall, it was one of the worst meals we have ever had in Charlotte, and we will not be back.

Cris was our waiter and he made the entire experience enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable of wine parings and knew the menu well. We were there for our anniversary and he helped make it special with complimentary cheesecake and house made chocolate. Although we had reservations 15 mins prior to closing, Cris made us feel unrushed and was a pleasure to have as a server. Best dining experience I've ever had!!

Excellent overall! The food, the drinks and the ambiance was great, considering there was a fan fest taking place right outside for the Miami/Clemson matchup.

Food was amazing; steak was cooked to perfection, the sides complimented the meat, and the drinks were on point.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.
