    At first, the evening was amazing. Our waitress greeted us, offered bread and water. Then came back and took our order. Our appetizer came and was amazing but still no sight of the bread that was offered. Our dinner came shortly after. One of our sides was ice cold and we had to wait 30 minutes for our waitress to come back. Our water never got refilled, until after we payed the check. And then our waitress forgot the dessert that came included with the filet dinner. We always tip 20% at least, but after this experience I couldn’t fathom giving that amount. We loved Ruth Chris the first time we came (a different location), we are truly disappointed and won’t be returning to this location.

    We were told while ordering that the kitchen had lost many of the guests orders and the kitchen wasn’t able to keep up with the Valentine dinner rush. We didn’t have our order lost but waited an hour and a half before we asked for the manager. Jonathan, came to our table to address the issue. He was condescending and dismissive. His solution was to come back next week and he would take care of us because they were busy the rest of this week. We ended up paying for our drinks and leaving. No reason to go back to that Ruth’s Chris ever.

    The service was not great at the table, the main dish came out late and the server's was taken food to the wrong table, our food was mixed up, so by the time we got it , we had it box up and left , the one in Cary is so much better.

    Steak was charred on the outside. So flavor was bad. Service was very slow. I understand it was Valentines night but $350 it wasn’t a Ruth Chris service level. Drinks order was incorrect. Couples that were sat 10-15 minutes after us, had orders taken and food served before us. Server would disappear for long periods of time.

    My first - and probably last - visit to Ruth's Chris. I took my wife for our anniversary on a Saturday night. It was extremely crowded - our table was right between two other tables and was the opposite of intimate, even though I made the reservation months in advance and emphasized that it was our anniversary. The servers were very friendly, but the service was VERY slow. It took a solid 2 hours to get through an app, a salad, and a main course. We took our desert to go because it was so late. They graciously slashed our bill - proactively, recognizing our long wait (which I consider to be good management) I don't think our server made any mistakes - I think the kitchen just got really backed up (ironically, bad management) I ordered my steak medium well (I have a hard time digesting raw'ish meat) and it was what I would consider medium rare - about 70-80 pink. Overall, not the great experience I was expecting based on the reputation and price tag.

    The food was absolutely wonderful! The steaks were the best we’ve had in years and the calamari was very good! The Raspberry Rosemary Martini was tart and perfect. I wish they had a better craft beer selection, but that’s really the only complaint. The atmosphere is very quiet except for the waiters yelling, “corner” ever few minutes, but we were very close to the kitchen, so this probably wouldn’t be a factor in other areas. It wasn’t a problem for us! Great experience.

    I've been to nearly a dozen different Ruth's Chris locations and unfortunately this was by far the worst experience. Nothing seemed to be up to their traditional standards (however, the last time I went to RC was 3 years ago). The wait staff was seriously understaffed. Our server was very nice and friendly but it was clear he had way too many tables. The appetizer came out and was warm but not hot. The steaks came out hot and were good quality but didn't impress me the way RC normally does. For now, I'm going to attribute this to a single location and am really hoping RC hasn't gone downhill every where.

    Had the bone in filet which was delicious. My family had the 8oz filet which also was delicious. The Lyonnaise potatoes were fabulous as was the corn. The smoked old fashion cocktail was a special treat. The availability of my wife’s favorite gin, Monkey 47, was a pleasant surprise for her gin and tonic. Finally, the desserts were outstanding.

    Of the many times we've dine at many different locations of Ruth's Chris, this was the absolute best experience on my wife's 70th birthday. Her steak was (as always) exceptional; I tried the spicy salmon for the first time and found it very tasty. But the food is virtually always good here; the big difference was that it was the best service ever! We never had to wait for anything; at the same time, there were not the frequent interruptions when no help was wanted that occur sometimes at restaurants. I can't think of anything they could have done better!!!

    We were a party of 9 on NYE. Our table location was perfect enabling us to talk comfortably. Our server was friendly and funny entertaining us with little quips throughout the evening. He even turned into our personal photographer around the tree while we used multiple photo props taking several pictures. We stayed a long time and we never felt rushed. We dine at various RC Steak Houses and this was our best experience. Highly recommend.

    We had an OK meal. Our steaks were cooked to the desired temperature, and sides were family style, however, the menu was prefixed, which prevented my wife and I from having the menu we desired and were the primary reason we selected Ruth's Chris. The steaks and calamari were bland and required additional seasonings and sauces to enhance the taste. The service was solid. However, there was a bit of a wait time to get boxes for our leftovers and to receive the check. Overall, the price points for our dinner was at a premium for a less than premium meal.
