We were warmly greeted at the entrance. The young man that was our waiter was very polite and courteous and attentive. The food was great. We had heard that the ribs were great but had never tried them before because ribs are so messy, but we give them a try this time. We will be back for more ribs, thats for sure !

We drive from Illinois whenever we can to enjoy Martini's Grille. It is definitely the best restaurant in the area. Not only are the food and drinks delicious, no matter what we try, the service is impeccable: always friendly, prompt and accurate. We always leave feeling like we've had the best experience ever!

Wow! Living in Iowa unfortunately there are no decent restaurants compared to when we lived in San Francisco this restaurant was recommended by Capital Grille employees since I told them I was sad they didn’t have a restaurant in Iowa. Well this place is just as good as Capital Grille. It was a 2 hr drive each way to get there. Well worth the traffic and drive! We will definitely be going back. It’s expensive but worth every penny. Had the 12 oz filet. Split with my husband I wanted it medium and he wanted it medium rare. They cut the meat cooks his the way he wanted it and mine like I wanted it. We split a lobster tail. Had the Brussel sprouts and for an appetizer we had the crab cake! Wow. Dessert was amazing too. If you’re impressed with clear square ice cubes my husbands manhattan had one. Just a first class joint!!!

We had an AMAZING dining experience last night at Ruthie's. We began with a caesar salad -- so fresh, beautifully dressed with anchovies and plenty of shaved parmesan. I had the prime rib, perfectly cooked medium rare, and my dining companion had the beef medallions with shrimp, again, perfectly cooked and presented. It was my dining companion's birthday and they presented her with the most luscious chocolate cake I think I ever had! The whole meal was perfectly served to us by our waitress, Lala -- a pure delight, someone who truly seemed to love her job, giving us the assurance her greatest wish was to make sure our evening was the most delightful ever! And it was!

Great food and ambience. Service was excellent. We went with our 7 and 9 year old kids and they offered us a children’s menu that wasn’t on the main menu which we really appreciated. We love eating out at nice restaurants and appreciate when they are accommodating to young children. Thank you for a great experience!

Filet mignon was very good, but grilled asparagus that it came with was not very good. For the money spent, you should be able to pick a few sides to go with entree. It came with asparagus and if you wanted potato or salad, it was extra. With already a 50 dollar entree, that would be extremely pricey.
