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.

Dinner at Ruth’s Chris is always amazing and this was the same!! Great food, great atmosphere, nice location and our server, Marc, was one of the best ever! His attention to detail was second to none. I would highly recommend coming here and asking for Marc!!

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.

The worst service we have ever experienced at a Ruth Chris. Took 10 minutes for our table to be greeted. Apps came out quickly and then it went downhill. Food took an hour to arrive. Our server forgot to ring in one of the entrees and instead of bringing what was ready and putting a rush on the one remaining item, they decided to re-cook the entire ticket. They did bring a comp appetizer but at that point it was too little, too late. Also we had to ask for bread to be brought after waiting for 30 min for the entrees.
I stupidly ordered dessert to go. We got it back to our hotel room and the "warm apple crumble" was stone cold and inedible. Called restaurant to ask for a refund of the dessert and they were unable to process. I spoke with a manager who was very apologetic but so far I have not received anything from the restaurant.

The restaurant was crowded because of the NCAA tournament. Not overwhelmed with the food but I know this is just another expensive steak place. Made a reservation and mentioned it was a birthday celebration. Nothing special was done. Was hoping when we ordered dessert a candle might come with it. Won't go again.

Wanted to thank the entire Ruth’s Chris Uptown staff for making this a memorable Thanksgiving dinner with my family that joined us from out of town. Our server Ricardo and his assistant David were on point and made us feel like their only guest being so busy! Management stopped by and thanked us as well! Overall a wonderful night, we will be back!

We have gone to Ruth Chris for Thanksgiving before and we were greatly pleased. So we went again this year, only to be greatly disappointed. The portions were much smaller and the food came out cold. While management tried hard to make it right, it was too little, too late! As usual the service was excellent, but this time it could not compensate for the bitter taste left by cold food! Note: we had a party of 10 and this was everyone consensus opinion.

This Ruth's Chris lived up to our expectations. We were traveling in Charlotte and thought we would do something other than a traditional turkey dinner. The steaks are awesome, and the sides were great. Our server was excellent, as were all the folks running around that very busy day. The one thing that I was just surprised with was the price of the meal. For the four of us it was very close to $100. per person. That was with three of us having one drink each. I would recommend this place with the disclaimer that the price is a little silly.

Food was excellent. Steaks cooked correctly as ordered. Wait staff was good, trying to hard to push items and additional add ons. The people that greet you and seat you should be fired. They stand there and engage in silly talk about how they do their hair, while people are waiting to be seated. Mind you this was early on a Saturday night..... it's not like they were busy.

We had a great experience at dinner last night. The food was delicious as usual. Our server Mark went above and beyond as well. His attitude and attention to detail was greatly appreciated by my dinner companions. I brought two people to Ruth’s Chris for the first time in their lives. He made the experience a memorable one for all of us and I plan to request him as my server on future visits to Charlotte.

My girlfriend and I came to Ruth's Chris for our one year anniversary. We ordered the porterhouse for two, baked potato, and the creamed spinach. Everything was amazing. From the hostess to our server (Marc is the best server ever. Seriously. He is great. He helped make our night even more special.), everyone was very nice. As we were getting ready to leave, Eugene had my girlfriend and I cracking up laughing. Awesome place. Definitely our favorite restaurant thus far. We're college kids, so the fancy restaurants are new to us. Thanks Ruth's Chris Uptown!

My friends and I stopped in before the Panthers game and the entire staff took great care of us! Slate, Bryna & Mick in the lounge were attentive and helpful with menu and drink options. We tried the Touchdown Bloody Mary which was a bargain for $25. It had steak and shrimp on top so it was lunch and a drink all in one. You can’t beat the proximity to the stadium- just a quick 5-10 minute walk. We’ll definitely be back!

Have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and it has always been excellent especially when we had Dom as our waiter However on this night it was poor Drink order did not come out at same time Appetizers were good Steaks came out ,one had been ordered medium and it was well done another meal the lobster did not come out until about 10 minutes later Sides were luke warm The steak that was sent back did not come out until after everyone was done and of course sides were cold.The manager did give us a glass of champagne and free desert ,however the food and service was certainly not worth our $450 bill for 6 There are numerous steak houses in downtown Charlotte. We have always enjoyed Ruth Chris and eat there when we are in Charlotte for ballgames but this was unacceptable. I hoping it was just a bad night but will have to consider going back

I never give a "perfect" score but our experience was great. We have been to Ruth's Chris several times and will definitely be back. Our friends told us about Del Frisco's so we tried it once and there is NO comparison!! Will not be going back there.

Your restaurant is by far our favorite "Up Scale" place to go eat especially for special occasions.

Thanks for the great experience!

Visited Ruth’s Chris uptown Charlotte Saturday night. We had a special birthday to celebrate and chose Ruth’s Chris. We had a wonderful experience! Starting with a nice bottle of wine and cocktails. Appetizers were awesome! We had the calamari and crab cakes. Both were yummy. Three of us had delicious steak and one had the fresh fish. Can’t say enough about the flavor. Sides of baked potato mashed potatoes salad and corn were all very good. We have visited other Ruth’s Chris restaurants before but this was our first visit to Charlotte. We will definitely be back!!!!
