Started with a drink at the bar. Friendly and fast service from the bartender, I forgot her name, but she was great. We were then seated and Carson was our server. Perfect service and food recommendations. The food was great. The manager Eric stopped by our table a few times during our visit to make sure everything was perfect. Eric also recommended a terrific wine to accompany our meal. Overall great dinner, service, wine, and experience.

My family and I travelled to Charlotte for the West Virginia/Tennessee game. I made reservations a month in advance. When I called to confirm our reservation, the person answering the phone reminded me that the dress code is business casual.

After the game, we rushed to our hotel to shower and change our clothes. When we arrived in time for our reservation, we were promptly seated. However, as we were walking to our table, we passed many tables full of folks in football attire—shorts and tee shirts. So much for the dress code. Also, after passing through several invitingly decorated dining rooms, we were seated in the far corner of a room that appeared to be a conference room, complete with big screen TVs and no decor.

Mitchell, our waiter, was personable. We quickly had drinks, placed our dinner order, and advised our waiter that we were celebrating a birthday when he asked if there was any occasion we were celebrating. Our salads came out in a few minutes and they were tasty. This is the point we’re the wheels fell off the bus.

We waited over an hour for our steak entrees to come out. Our waiter and two managers came by to apologize and explained that they had over two hundred diners and the kitchen was backed up. Our steaks and sides were good when they finally arrived.

When we finished our steaks, they quickly cleared our plates and brought the check. There was no offer of dessert or the birthday celebration that we had mentioned. They wanted us out of there.

They comped our drinks and salads but I’m still disappointed in what we had hoped would be a nice evening. From the none enforcement of the dress code and shabby conference room to the overbooking and long wait time, it was a sad evening. The food was great though so at least we had that.

We often dine at Ruth’s Chris when we travel because we know that we’ll get excellent food and service. We’ll probably eat at Ruth’s Chris in other cities but not in Charlotte again.

Our waitress was really sweet, but due to a few big events in the city, the restaurant service was slower than normal, but it was ok. The food was excellent.

Ive been to this restaurant numerous times. We just had the worst server ever this round. Waited 30minutes before the bread or water even came out, then poured our own wine the whole night. It was a game night, so the only thing that makes sense is they knew they were going to be slow and had the second string people working or something. Don’t really know, but it sucked.

This is where we go to get pampered.

Ken Smith ALWAYS checks the reservations for the evening, and when he sees we are coming, he is ready for us. He tells his staff, and they take complete care of us.

Alina is the best! Helpful, never overbearing. Great recommendations. "Can't decide? Here, try some samples!" "What else can I get you?" Just the BEST.

Mac was running food. Thanks, bud! ON IT!

The chef -- his name escapes me, but once again, he nailed EVERYTHING. And the barman? Great cocktail.

Even the valet! Jeremy (and the boss, Chad) make the evening special all the way around.

Mary at the reception! Sweet. Thanks.

A shout out to Sam (He's the "Jesus Saves" guy). Friendly!

And a couple of guys begging money. Happy to give them a few bucks. This is all part of the Uptown scene, and WE LOVE IT!


Thanks, everybody!

Awesome service from William! We were seated in the Wine Cellar which is absolutely beautiful and he provided true 5 star service on the rare date night we get. The food provided from the kitchen was everything expected, especially the Lobster Mac and Cheese! We would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great steak or needing a perfect date night out. Thank you so much for making this a perfect evening for us.

We have eaten at Halls Chop House which is amazing and though this would be similar. The steak was just fair at best. For the price it was not worth it at all.

Excellent meal during Queen City restaurant week. -- My husband and I celebrated my birthday at Ruth Chris during restaurant week. We had reservations. The restaurant was packed but we were seated at our table within 15 min. of the reservation time. We had excellent service from our waiter Sam. I had the 8oz filet and my husband ordered up for the 11 ou filet. My steak was cooked to perfection-medium rare- and had excellent flavor and tenderness. My husband said his steak was a little dry and chewy. I love RC because you can bring your own wine without a corkage fee. For my birthday I receive complementary glass of champagne. We had a wonderful meal with no rushed service. The dessert portions were just the right size.

Was a bit disappointed in my experience at uptown. I’ve been before and and never had cold food. I didn’t want to send it back as they were extremely busy with restaurant week. I hope this was a one off as I do enjoy dining with Ruth’s Chris.
