Our visit to Ruth's Chris of Wilmington was their opening night. The new venue is outstanding. Comfortable and well done. The service was perfect and the staff welcoming. While the prices were as expected from Ruth's Chris the quality and quantity with a beautiful ambiance was well worth it. We will be frequent guests of this place.

We had a wonderful meal to celebrate my birthday. The steaks & side dishes were all cooked perfectly. We were even treated to a delicious complimentary dessert!

As always, Ruth's Chris doesn't disappoint. Took our son and daughter-in-law for their birthdays. Service was excellent, bar was pretty quick. Would recommend.

Restaurant was busy but the service was excellent. Adrienne, our server, was outstanding. Food was excellent. A big surprise was the “Happy Anniversary “ dessert plates prepared for our table making the evening memorable. I would highly recommend this dining venue.

Holiday meal - very good food and service. We’ve been going here every year for 10 years but this was first time since Covid and the prices have gone up significantly - it’s great but no longer worth the money

This was my first experience with Ruth’s Chris. Very wonderful! Every valet, host, bartender, and server was impeccable and attentive. The food was especially delicious and the overall experience for Christmas Eve was wonderful. We’re very grateful that Open Table still had reservations left at the last minute!

Open Table had my reservation as of December 10, 2021.

On December 24,2021, When I got to the restaurant, Ruth’s Chris, we were escorted from the restaurant to a banquet room. Essentially, the environment that I was expecting of a Ruth’s Chris, was deprived and it appeared we were shuttled to the cafeteria style dining in the hotel because the management overbooked the restaurant.

When I explained that we were expecting a Ruth’s Chris experience with ambiance, and that I had made the reservation weeks ago, management did nothing and said if we did not like it, we were free to leave. Furthermore, the management essentially called me a liar by saying I made the reservation 3 days before. The Open Table service and the restaurant may not have been communicating, or this just a blunder by management.

Nevertheless, this was Christmas Eve and it was supposed to be special. It was specially bad.

Our go-to for holidays when little else is open. Excellent food but a bit pricey, especially the sides. We reserve it for special occasions only.

We dined at Ruth's Chris on Christmas eve. We were both disappointed with the food, I ordered scallops, which were burnt and the cream brulee and lobster bisque were both runny.

For the price paid, we've been served better food at other restaurants in Wilmington.

Had a wonderful anniversary lunch. Our server Gary was very attentive and personable which made the experience nice. Oysters Rockefeller was very good. I had the "lunch" ribeye which was a slightly overcooked medium rare and a bit chewier than expected. My wife had the 6 oz. filet and portabella salad for her entre, and it was excellent. The roast corn side is also very good.

Service was great. My steak was almost well done, I ordered med-rare and asked for more on the rare side! My husband asked for medium rare and his was medium. We enjoyed the meal any way.

We were well taken care of by Hunter. The food and drinks were perfect. Restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. There was a large table of men seated by us that were extremely loud; that was the only downside of the evening. It made it difficult for us to converse.

Normal food. Steak was prepared perfectly, but fried shrimp over cooked no breading. Literally just dropping raw shrimp in a fryer. Asparagus with a packet made sauce. Not good value.
