The steak at Ruth Chris is always excellent. The service was friendly and efficient. The only criticism is about the Caesar salad which was overdressed

Only time I’ve been to RuthChris and been disappointed. $69 for a steak with all the gristle still on the meat was certainly not worth that price. Been there many times and it’s the steak that brings me, don’t really care much about price but the quality matters. I will still go there so I consider last night as an anomaly.

I sent my wife and 18 year old son there for a special dinner and while I have dined here many times my wife and son came back talking about how badly they were treated first by the waiter who was rude and secondly how they were treated by the assistant manager who was very dismissive towards them especially my wife. We have dined here for years and this was not our first time there post covid closure and have always enjoyed it, but now they have no desire to return to eat there. I am very disappointed in Ruths Chris!

Hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Got to love when it’s a birthday and they give you the worst table in the restaurant next to a service corridor in a dark corner. We got that sorted and moved to a nicer section and it was great from there. Luis was an excellent server snd the food was decent. Huge portions. If your looking for a business lunch this is probably the spot. Otherwise I’d say there are better locals owned non-chain options.

Expensive...but it was worth it! We ordered from the Prix Fixe menu...still, with tip for two was $244. But it was a birthday celebration and was worth it. We dined for 3 1/2 hours. Wait staff EXCELLENT! Entrees come on plates that are 500 degrees...so the steak which I had was continuously "hot" while consuming! Can hardly wait to return.

We didn't appreciate the call we received ahead of time letting us know how to dress for their place of establishment. I have been there before so I am aware of how to dress. So I am to assume they had issues in the recent past with how people dress in their restaurant. So I didn't like it at all.

I normally always enjoy dining at Ruth’s Chris. This evening was somewhat disappointing. Although service was great, I ordered a 6 oz. steak medium temperature but it turned out to be very rare in the center. My husband ordered an 11 oz. steak but it was the exact same size as my 6 oz. steak. The server noticed and acknowledged the same and immediately ordered a replacement.

Fathers Day Had an amazing dining experience. Waiter was ok, a little cocky/arrogant. The busboy was amazing! He should be promoted. I have never felt compelled to give a bus boy a tip, but I gave this young man a hefty one.

Lobster bisque very disappointing sent back. In the past it was always a favorite. It tasted briney and sour.
Service not great. Main course brought out as we were still finishing our salads making it awkward to remove plates and receive hot entree’s
Server not available and not checking in to see how we were doing.
Not the level of service we typically have experienced at Ruth Chris in the past. The food other than the bisque was excellent.

20th Anniversary. My Husband is from New Orleans however, he had never been to Ruth Chris’s before. We had a wonderful time. My lamb was well seasoned, but I should have ordered the Cowboy ribeye. We will definitely be back again.

Food was good but there was literally no sizzle which is iconic for Ruth’s Chris and expected. Filet's & Strip Steak were delicious and cooked to the perfect requested temperature. Butter for the bread was cold & hard straight from the refrigerator. I couldn't taste any Blue Cheese in the Chopped Salad although it was good. Brussel Sprouts, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Ahi Tuna, Stuffed Mushrooms, Cheesecake & Bread Pudding were delicious. Ahi Tuna was AMAZING and the best!! A very nice wine selection was available as well as cocktails. Bar area was closed due to Covid.

Service was good but could have been great. Staff definitely needs some work in this area. Managers may need better training. For this type of restaurant everything should exceed expectations and be the best - not just the food.

Customers need to step up their attire! Although the restaurant explicitly tells you on the phone and signage is posted outside of the restaurant it isn’t adhered too. Very disappointed in this area as we were there celebrating a special occasion. Ruth’s Chris is an upscale, fine dining restaurant and most customers expect a pleasant experience to match the restaurant standards and prices. With a $420.00 bill plus a $90.00 tip totaling $510.00 for 3 people a properly dressed dining room would have been nice. (No sweat suits, ripped jeans, etc)

Lighting & music was good and decor was simple but elegant. Overall a nice atmosphere (with exception to attire).

We are 35+ years RC customers beginning with the first ones in New Orleans. We absolutely love the brand and expect only the highest standards when dining here, as did Ms. Ruth when she put her heart and soul into this business.

Overall the restaurant was nice. Though it needs improvement in some areas I think it has the potential to be spectacular with the right management training. I hope the restaurant uses this review constructively so it can be the best of the best which is what it was intended for.

Great food as usual, but given the price I expect nothing less. We had a 5:45 reservation and the room where we were seated caught quite a bit of afternoon sun from the western facing windows, even with the shades drawn, and some raucous laughter from the bar detracted from the otherwise pleasant ambiance. The service and the food were excellent. Next time I’ll request a seat in the interior of the restaurant or go after the sun sets.
