The whole experience was outstanding. Our server, Ali, was exceptional, the food was magnificent, and the drinks were superb. Ali was on top of everything, without hovering. He ensured our water was always replenished, that our expectations were being met, and that we felt special. My wife and son fully enjoyed the truffle crusted ribeye, my daughter loved her filet and shrimp, and the T-bone was perfect. All the steaks were seasoned perfectly. We always get the garlic mashed potatoes since they are our favorite side order, and they never disappoint. We tried the lobster Mac and cheese and will be ordering this dish again. Despite our meals, we couldn’t pass up the desserts. The clear winner was the Creme Brûlée! We can’t wait for our next visit. Kudos all around.

Everything was perfect, the only mistake was they got the steak cooking levels swapped for my wife and I on our anniversary. We just decided to swap steaks and enjoy the night.

We were in a table in the back, which was our only complaint. The service from Chris was excellent and he had tremendous wine knowledge. Food was superb as usual (we would like it if you brought the shoestring fries back though!).

Mother’s Day. All normal excellent except the steaks were not cooked “hot pink center”; medium... too rare. And we’re uncustomarily tough.

Our server was excellent and very attentive. He was polite and courteous. The manager stopped by the table, which is special touch of Ruth's Chris.
The spacing of the tables was excellent and facilitated the quiet ambience.

Been to Ruths Chris a dozen + times. Service was way off tonight. Food was delicious. When you’re spending $250 (for 2) you’d expect a better experience.

Food was good— but kitchen screwed up and on of our dinners didn’t arrive till the rest of the party had finished our food—- and it took a long time for the wait staff to even come over and see if there any issues with the food so it took even longer than it should have.

Overall the food service and atmosphere were all very good. 25+ for a glass of wine, that’s a $20.bottle retail price, is simply shameful.

I think the waitress was extremely sweet and made our night. My only critique is that the presentation of the food could be better. For an expensive restaurant, I thought it would be a lot better when it comes to the steaks and chicken dish. The plates were filled with the grease and didn’t bother cleaning the edges off

Great service and very accommodating staff. My only complaint was my steak was not prepared to my requested temperature. I wanted a medium steak however it came out RARE! Unacceptable so they took it back and reheated it. Caused the steak to be dry and I was very very disappointed.

They should have made me a whole new steak. If this happens again, I won’t return to this restaurant as there are so many competing steakhouses who can prepare my steak to my requirements.

Thanks

Travis took care of the four of us. He rocks. Ask for him.

Our plates included the sea bass, bone-in ribeye, and filet mignon. We shared the asparagus, lobster mac-and-cheese, & creamed spinach.

Everything was prepared as ordered and presented very well for dinner. Everything tasted great. It was a fantastic experience, like every prior visit over the past year.

We wore masks to enter and sit at our table. Once seated we took them off. All the restaurant staff wore masks, Travis included. We wore masks again to pass thru the room and leave.

The restaurant was busy with plenty of properly spaced tables separating parties. I gotta say I prefer the open feeling with all the space between tables. Two years ago the room was MUCH tighter.

Overall a great experience for a Thursday evening. Definitely recommend!

Celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. As always the food and service were outstanding. They made it even more special by decorating our table and presenting us with a card signed by all the staff in the restaurant. Very thoughtful. Ruth's Chris, especially this location and team, never disappoints.

Not great. Salads never came, we cancelled them. Lamb chops were very rare, ordered medium well. Sides were not hot. By the time lamb chops returned, they were over cooked and dry and everyone else had long since finished their meal. Fresh mint on menu was actually mint jelly.
Used to be a great place but our last few visits have been less than wonderful. Looking forward to Capital Grill opening close by.
