Even though our reservation was at 7, we didn’t get seated until around 7:40. But the manager gave us a free appetizer for our patience. My lamb chops came out well done instead of medium well, but they quickly took it back and had the manager bring out my food medium instead, which was great. Our server Steve was amazing, as well as the drinks, appetizers, food & dessert.

Thanksgiving Day. The steaks and the mixed drinks were delicious. The sides were disappointing - thrown together and without much taste.

First let me start by addressing the good, the food was great, the barbecued shrimp was amazing, tasted more like a shrimp scampi, the only negative about the food was the asparagus lacked flavor. Our waiter seemed to be new to the job, he forgot numerous items which prompted me to ask him if he was new and to my surprise he informed me that Thanksgiving would make 2 years he had worked there. One of my party members placed a carry out order of lamb chops midway through dining only for it to be forgotten as we were getting our things together when asked about it, the waiter instead of admitting it was forgotten he sent the manager out who offered us salmon, granted it was complimentary. Then as we were leaving a MOUSE RAN ACROSS MY FEET! I cant say I wouldn’t return ever again but probably not for another birthday!

What a terrific experience!!
A few weeks ago I had a not so good experience at another Philly steak house. Ruth’s Chris was the exact opposite. It was amazing. Every person was attentive, friendly and welcoming!! From the person that check us in and brought us to the table, to the waiter, to the guy checking our water and clearing our table. We were there for a birthday and they had a card for her and a cake at the end of dinner. Warms my heart thinking about the evening


We had the bone in filet and the petite filet. Absolutely Delicious.

I can’t say enough good things about this dinner experience!! Well done Ruth’s Chris. Others can learn from you all. You’re at the top of my list.

I frequent this location often and for the first time, I was unhappy with the service. The hostess was extremely short, condescending, and overall wasn’t pleasant . Our waiter wasn’t sure and often didn’t present well. They were out of lamb, which is fine, but it took them twenty minutes to informed me then my to-go order was presented to me an half an hour before our food arrived at the table. Lastly we kept being reminded of the cost of items and things that weren’t “free re-fills”. Especially when we reviewed the menu and as I stated , I have been to Ruth Chris’s before and after the pandemic. I’m not sure if this is protocol but the overall experience was just wasn’t it’s best especially because I’ve been here multiple times. I don’t believe it has anything to do with the pandemic however I gave the benefit of doubt and still tipped well. The guess I attended dinner with didn’t really notice things because it was their first time but I did. However, Terrence , the young man who assisted our waiter and who brought our table water and bread was pleasant and attentive . He’s the only reason I decided to stay and tip well

Overall, This was the first time I felt uncomfortable and more than likely will not be returning for awhile .

Just so disappointing from start to finish. Really too many things to name. The worst part for me was the appetizers. They were just so horrible that we had to send them back. Drinks were weak. My friend ordered a Prosecco- it was given to the table next to us and then we were told the restaurant was out of Prosecco. We go out to fine dining restaurants all the time. This was NOT worth the price. Unfortunately, we will not be back.

Unfortunately I think this will be my last time at Ruth's Chris, a place I have previously enjoyed. The lobster bisque was the consistency of pudding and was not hot. It also tasted strange. Thankfully they took this off the bill. The manager came over to say something - there were only two tables occupied and he got the table wrong. My steak was inconsistently cooked at best. My potato was dry/overcooked. The best part of our meal was the sweet potato casserole. Our server was also very friendly and attentive (but some of the other wait staff struggled - dropping utensils, dumping the bread basket onto our table, knocking into water glasses, etc.). I understand places are currently understaffed so those issues were much less of an issue than the quality of the food.

If you’re driving, it’s better if you find parking at a random parking garage. Parking is obviously tough in the city. I didn’t try the valet parking but I’m sure it’s more than any parking deal you can find online.

The restaurant did seat us 15 mins earlier than our actual reservation since we arrived early so that was good. The wait staff and host were all very friendly. They even put out a greeting card for our anniversary and gave us a free small dessert.

They were delayed with getting our free bread. The food overall was just ok. The steak wasn’t exceptional. I got the Cowboy Ribeye. It was slightly tough to cut and chew. It seemed to be cooked to the correct temperature. I’ve had better steaks at other restaurants. For how expensive these steakhouses are, I wouldn’t come back. Everything was just ok.

Our drinks were watered down. The food wasn’t not hot so we know it was sitting. When our waiter first came to take our order she last mid sentence to attend to another table. She then forgot to come back so we had to get someone else to bring her back to finish. Overall I wish we had really went with our gut in not coming. Definitely agree with the negative responses others shared.
