This was our first restaurant experience post-quarantine, and they seemed prepared. We had a great waiter (Patrick) who took great care of us and engaged in good banter. The food arrived in a timely fashion and was cooked exactly as we like (medium). The sides and cocktails Patrick recommended were excellent.

My sister and I had such a wonderful experience! Javon and Matthew took care of us in the bar and from the beginning of the meal to the end, everything was perfect. Jake was the manager on the floor and stopped by to make sure everything was to our liking, as well as the chef. I highly recommend dining here if you haven’t before. They made us feel very special!

Had the pleasure of taking my wife here for our first visit and I have to say we were absolutely impressed! The service, the atmosphere, the staff and most of all the food was superb! Thank you April for making my wife's anniversary night extra special! We give our first visit to Ruth Cris an A+

We go to Ruth's Chris locations whenever we travel and this location did not disappoint. The service was impeccable (thank you, Dom!) And of course the food was nothing short of spectacular. No matter which location the sea bass is the best I have ever had anywhere. Drinks mixed perfectly, sides, soups, and salads were also top notch and perfect compliment to the meal.

I’ve been to a Ruth Chris many time. This time was not impressive. This was my first time at the uptown location. Both of our sides weren’t good and my sons fries were burnt. My friend sent back her side but I didn’t want to be “that” table. Wouldn’t recommend going back for sure.

Ordered the surf and turf. Mistake. Go for just the steaks here. My filet was overcooked, and the king crab legs were rubbery. My fiancé's bone in filet was amazing. Which left me even more disappointed. Don't go for combos here. Just stick with the steak a la carte.

Been here many times before and they have always exceeded our expectations. We ordered Filet Mignon, Lobster Mac & Cheese & Broccoli. They brought our steaks and the broccoli but no lobster mac but they said it was coming. Our steaks were raw in the center after ordering them medium and they didn't bring out the mac and cheese until the end of the meal after we complained. Then they tried to pacify us with a free desert. We didn't come for desert so we didn't want that. They refused to address the problem until I asked for the manager to see the steaks. They let us go for payment on the broccoli and our wine but now we cant get feel good about returning. The experience ruined our evening.

This Ruth Chris is just not what it used to be. The service was great. The food was just okay. For a $60 steak, my son’s was undercooked and mine was slightly overcooked. This shouldn’t happen at this price range. My son’s potatoes were cold and so was the bread. And based on the number of empty tables at 8 pm as we left, I’m thinking I’m not the only one that believes this Ruth Chris is on a downward spiral.

Food was great. We have been coming here for years and love it. Service was slowest and least attentive that we have experienced yet. Server definitely needs more training and the team interaction was broken.

I brought my daughter to Ruth’s Chris Uptown for her birthday dinner. We had the absolute best time! The hostesses were warm & friendly, the service was spectacular, and the food was delicious! Jelani was our server and he went above and beyond to make my daughter feel special for her birthday, along with Jack, our server assistant. Chef Alex wrote a special birthday message on her dessert plate which was such a sweet gesture. Miranda, the manager on the floor, was very attentive and made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of throughout the visit. Other staff also stopped by to wish my daughter a happy birthday. 10/10 would recommend to anyone celebrating a special occasion!

Valentines Dinner with my Wife and 2 daughters. I was EXTREMELY disappointed. We dine at Ruth Chris 5 or 6 times a year and we are accustomed to s certain level of quality and professionalism. This experience by far was one our worst! The service was mediocre at best comparable to Applebee’s or waffle house. Beside having to wait on numerous occasions for our waiter, even having to flag one of the busing staff to retrieve him due to the fact the my wife’s medium Filet was purple and we were almost halfway through the meal before it was addressed. Our table was never cleared, when the food runner arrived she had to wait for the table to be cleared of bread,salad,and appetizer plates ect. The food quality was still good other than the fact that my wife’s was raw. All in all I am very disappointed in the overall experience. To spend over $500. And get an experience that I could have gotten better and for a 1/4 of the price at Outback is unacceptable. Obviously I will dine with you again as we have NEVER experienced this type of service from Ruth Chris in the past, however I probably won’t return to this location.

We are regulars at the restaurant. Our food and dining experience was nice as well. I really thought the dessert came with ice cream and our server said it did. We took our dessert to go but no ice cream .

First of all, they didn’t have what we wanted but the manger very generously offered us an upgrade. Very kind.
It was a tomahawk for two. We ordered medium, it was very very rare. We were also at a table for two with tables to each side, very close to us. Impossible to have intimate conversation with my wife. The restaurant was loud. Our waiter was a gentlemen but a little to casual, telling others what we were having and interacting with others while serving us. Almost a little cheeky. We just felt like weren’t at Ruth’s. We’ve never had a bad experience but this for sure was one. We were on a time crunch and heading to a show, so we didn’t offer any critic to anyone. Ruth’s is usually a once a year, special treat for us, it was just overall a disappointing, expensive night.

tbh....We do love Ruth’s but just being honest.

Wonderful Valentine's Day celebration at Ruth Chris-Charlotte Uptown. Food is always outstanding and service did not disappoint. Our server Travis was welcoming and very attentive to our needs throughout the meal. We mentioned that we were attending Jazz Arts Charlotte concern and needed to complete our meal in one hour - done! Thanks Travis and the Ruth Chris team for a great night!

Food was good but not as great as I had hoped. Some of the flavors in the appetizers were lacking. The steaks were not cooked perfectly (even though the cuts were prime) and there was a hair in my kale salad.

Our (my boyfriend and I) reservation was for 7:45 and we had to wait in the lobby at least a half hour before we were seated. Our waiter, Dom, was very personable and did not rush us which we appreciated very much. We shared a chopped salad, the 16 oz. rib-eye (with the Oscar entree complement) and brussel sprouts. The steak was cooked as requested (medium rare), but was not tender and was full of gristle. Everything but the steak was good, but we went to Ruth’s Chris thinking good, juicy steak. We should have sent the steak back, but it was already late so we didn’t; however, as good as our server was, we will not go back.

Clayton Carr was the lead server for a table of 13. A group that size rarely raves about service. Bottom line, Clayton and his team (Blake & Torey) run a tight ship. Fantastic service and a great evening!

If you have a large group I would recommend Clayton. He will keep the meal moving and seamlessly accommodated everyones “one off” requests!

The server was good. Both steaks were not cooked to order. My wife does not like to ask for us to send them back or to criticize. Instead, she wants to just eat around it.

We do eat out a great deal, and enjoy many nice places to eat including your other locations. I travel extensively around the world for business and know the value of a well cooked meal.

For 178 dollars you expect the main course to be cooked to order. It's simple for your cooks in the back. Use a thermometer to know instead of guessing.

In the future, we will continue to go to Morton's next door or others when we are uptown.
