Everything went well. We could talk to each other and not have to yell. The steaks were excellent.

I’m a fan of steak. I have tried many fine-dining steak around US, however, the only high end steak around my house is the Ruth’s Chris Steak House. My first time was about a month ago, I took my family there and everyone enjoyed their meals, however, there were 2 orders of lamp chops that were VERY salty, but overall it was ok. Furthermore, first we ordered 2 bottle of red wine and we liked it, then we wanted to order the second one, then it was out of stock. It was a disappointment that this is a chain restaurant and you guys don’t have enough stock of wine. The total came out a little over $1,000 for 5 pp which is a great good price!

I would like to give it another try, so I took my girlfriend there last Sunday. We both ordered Blue rare Fillet Magnon , it was such a disappointment. Mine came out rare to med rare and my girlfriend’s came out med rare , almost med. I was surprised they don’t know how to cook Blue rare steak, since this is a fine-dinning restaurant.

I called the manager and he came immediately and fix a new order for my girlfriend. The 2nd one came and it was OK because it was freezing cold in side like it was just came out of the fridge. The inside should be room temperature to no more then 29C .


It was such a disappointment, but we are very appreciate that you guys still giving us a great customer service. And we maybe giving you guys another try next time.

Anniversary, typically the Ruth Chris’s we’ve gone to in the past have set up a table prior to arriving for either our birthday or anniversary. They would offer us a complimentary glass of champagne, and at the end of the evening they’d do a strawberry presentation. Lastly they gave us a 20% discount four our next visit and that always made our special night more special.

We didn’t receive any of this which was really unfortunate as our standards were already set.

We had enjoyed Ruth’s Chris multiple times before, but this visit was a disappointment. My filet had some “grocery store” beef undertones. Server said all the corporate lines, and was proper, but distant. We will probably make a different choice the next time we look for a high-end steakhouse.

For the first time I was a bit disappointed by Ruth's Chris. I have never questioned the value of the meals I have eaten at your restaurants all over the country. I have no problem paying a large amount for an exceptional meal. Along with our steaks we ordered lobster tails for a premium price. The steaks and sides were amazing as usual. The lobster tails were no bigger than a large shrimp! I guess lesson learned and will not repeat that again.

Beautiful from beginning to end. Dress code not enforced, wished I hadn’t stressed so much. Mouthwatering steaks, amazing sides and drinks. Service was wonderful, very attentive, most likely not trained in fine dining but clearly been working fine dining (missed minor details most wouldn’t notice).
This was my first time to Ruth Chris, I prefer non chain steakhouses, it wasn’t enough to blow me away and leave me drooling but i enjoyed myself.

I enjoyed New Year’s Eve at Ruth’s Chris. This is one of my favorite restaurants. The service was good, but lacking compared to my previous visit in November 2019 for Thanksgiving Dinner. The server reached across my dinner plate while serving the entree - the ultimate faux pas. Most shocking was the attire of one hostess - her evening wear was most inappropriate for the setting as it nearly exposed her buttocks. Although, Ruth’s Chris is not a Michelin starred restaurant, I would expect a fine dining establishment to ensure proper attire for their staff.

My family has spent every New Year’s Eve at Ruth’s Chris for the past 8 or 9 years. It never disappoints. They have great food and service. It is expensive but worth it especially for special occasions!

Ruth's a a "must" for those celebrating a special occasion. When we arrtived, our table was decorated with "Happy Anniversary" festive decorative scatter. Our waiter arrived quickly , soon followed by water for our glasses and warm bread with softened butter. When choosing our meals, our waiter offered suggestions and answered questions. The dining room was busy , but quiet and relaxing. We throughly enjoyed our evening.

Hadn’t been to Ruth’s in a while and it was my wedding anniversary so I surprised my wife with lunch here. Service and food were excellent as always. Holly was great - and even surprised us with a small “Happy Anniversary” dessert that was just the right size. Thanks so very much!!

Food very good.
But Outrageously expensive for Tidewater.
Or most anywhere else.

Wine by glass pricing fair.

Service passable but friendly

Best ambience of most any restaurant around.
Quiet. Very comfortable and attractive venue.

Was there for the first time with my husband for his birthday, was excited to go but we were seated by the door where the waiters go in and out of they were dropping things all around us they ever were laughing loudly and one even cursed when he dropped some plates. My salad was salty I had a garden salad with ranch it was awful, my steak was well done and came out crunchy in every bite did even eat a quarter of it was very disappointing. The desert was the best part of our dinner. Don’t think we will be returning.

Tried the Thanksgiving holiday meal. The thanksgiving meal was OK, should have had a steak. I was a little underwhelmed by the turkey. I will go back for steaks on a special occasion.

Our third year at Ruth Chris- everything was delicious. Some of us had traditional thanksgiving dinner and other had off the menu. The sweet potatoes are to die for. The pork chop was top notch.

Thanks for the wonderful meal.

Usually enjoy the restaurant but this visit wasn’t as pleasant. My steak was very good as usual as well as my side. However my wife’s salmon was okay but not worth the price. Who ever prepared the salmon obviously did not pay attention during prep for bones as there were quite a few. To many to not be obvious. Since it seemed to take longer than usual to get served we did not have time to say anything. We were going to a performance. Felt our server was rushed although she did check on us a couple times.

Crab cakes were burnt on the bottom. They advertise the crab cakes as lump crab meat but very few lumps of crab. We didn’t get dressing for one of our salads and one of our party members had to wait to eat his salad. They brought out the wrong side with our meals and we had to begin our meal without one of our sides which eventually came out 7-8 minutes later. We will not go back anytime soon.
