My new husband and I had a fantastic time celebrating our new marriage tonight at Ruth Chris! Our server, Ali, was one in a million and went above and beyond to recommend a great bottle of wine, awesome steaks, and give us free champagne and a dessert to celebrate our wedding! Highly recommend and if you can request a server, Ali is the best.

Service was fantastic. Food was amazing as always. Menu selection was a touch more limited than usual, but all the classics are there. Would like to see has browns, but the baked potato was great. Thanks for reopening and doing so at your typical high standard!

Steak was a little grisly. Crab legs seamed old tasting. Fries were underdone. Salad was good.

Ruth Chris always adds that special touch! We went here for my husband’s birthday dinner and the service was excellent. They created special menus with his name and happy birthday on it! What an excellent touch to make him special

Edwin was our server - excellent and attentive but what was even better was that no matter what server stopped by to drop off (bread or pour water, etc)they all took a request and followed through with service.

Great place to go for special occasions!!

This is my Ruth's Chris. I was stunned to find out when I arrived that my server, Tim, is no longer there. Tim was our server for years and years. He knew exactly what we were getting. We barely had to order because he knew our order by heart. He made great suggestions that we stuck with over the years. He knew the menu inside and out. He was very loyal to Ruth's Chris. We will have to now get a new "favorite" server at Ruth's Chris. Our server tonight was great. It was quite weird though, I forgot to tell certain details because I was so used to Tim knowing it. The one thing I was disappointed with was they would not make our peas. We get the peas every time we go and it didn't matter if our reservation was last minute or not, they would do it for us. Tonight they did not. But other than that it was smooth sailing and great food with one other exception, the crab cakes. My husband had a ton of shell in it. He kept picking shell out of his mouth. Everything else was great. I suggest the tomato and mozzarella. It is kalamata tomatoes which are a sweeter, darker tomato. the tomato almost loves brown. The corn is very fresh and right of the cob. The broccoli was very good, soft and I requested hollandaise. The sweet potato casserole is always good, can't go wrong. The banana creme pie was especially good. I always ask for it to be extra done. The top is bruleed. Drinks were good as usual. I always get the Gambler's Old Fashioned. This is still our RC, I just need to tweak some things.

We had a very disappointing experience for what was supposed to be dinner with our close friends for a special occasion. Dirty wine glasses on the ledge behind me were never removed. After waiting over an hour for our drinks to come, we had to speak to an assistant manager about the problem, and it still took another 10 minutes to get them after that. Two of the four dinners were supposed to be petit filet. However, the steak that came did not appear to be a filet, appeared to be strip steak. Two of the four steaks were severely overcooked. Both were ordered medium rare and came very well done, and were tough. The asparagus was soggy and overcooked, inedible. The lobster mac n cheese was watery and had little flavor. The salads were good, the crab stack and tuna appetizers were good, the bread was good. Desserts were so so. Nothing was comped on our bill for the poor service and the wait on our drinks. Overall, for a dinner for four that cost over $500 or more with tip, it was lackluster and disappointing, and it was absolutely the worst steak I have ever eaten in any restaurant. We won't go back.

Everything was great but there was a bit of delay for reservations. Some people said they were waiting 45 minutes to an hour for their reservation. We waited about 30 minutes or so. The staff was great but a couple of staff at the front desk seemed to be very overwhelmed. My guess is that there may have been an issue with overbooking.

Valentines Dinner: Restaurant was very busy as you would expect, not seated until nearly 25 minutes past our reservation. Food was excellent. Service was okay, had to wait multiple times for refill on drinks, even for someone to come by to check on us. They definitely brought in additional tables for the crowd as we were almost seating with the parties on either side of us. Privacy for our conversation was not possible. I will definitely go back, chalking this experience up to the holiday.

We went there for Valentine's dinner and the food and the service were excellent. Our service team of Sean and Brian knew excellent what we wanted and when we wanted it. We were not rushed and the meal was delicous of steak and lobster. Mashed Potatoes and Corn with a slight spice. Warm bread and butter.
Hungry yet!!

Everything was wonderful! From the hostess team to the the bar to the table. The hostess accommodated our request to wait for a booth. The bartender, Ray, made great drinks and was very knowledgeable about their wine selection. Our server, Sean, took excellent care of us from start to finish, ensuring that our evening was extra special. The food was amazing and we truly enjoyed our experience. We live close and enjoy treating ourselves to a nice dinner out without the kids every so often. We'll be back and highly recommend it to friends & family. Thank you!

I can go on and on and on about how AMAZING our experience was. I was soo pleased with the quality of service I received that I had to write a separate email for Corporate. Marion at the host stand was amazing. She kept us updated about our table at all times and although I requested for a booth, she was honest letting us know there wasn’t many booths but instead she offered us a nice table by the window. Austin the server assistant was on top of everything... if we were close to running out of water he was right there to fill us us, if we had dirty dishes he removed them from the table. He also would ask us if we needed anything throughout our dining. Now for the superstar of the evening, our server Chris!!!! WOW WOW AND WOW. From the minute we sat down Chris greeted us in a timely manner and had some wonderful suggestions. He was very efficient and consistent and that is very important to me. He was also serving a large table that was besides us but you could never feel the difference because he treated us as if we were a large table as well and gave us his attention instead of forgetting about us. I am very much an observant person and I saw something I BARELY see while dining out (yes sad to say), but I saw a manager assisting servers and host and just making sure everyone was happy and enjoying their meals!! I had requested to speak to a manager and sure enough it was the same gentleman by the name of Bill. Bill had stopped by tables and he was very much present, I even saw him run bar drinks to a table!!!!!!!! Let’s be honest..... Ruth Chris is not a cheap place to dine at BUT when you have the quality of service my husband and I had like tonight then it’s worth every penny!!!! Food was amazing and so was the service. Again a VERY SPECIAL thank you to Marion, Austin, Chris and Bill for making our dining experience beyond perfect and showing the true meaning of being hospitable.
