    First, our server, Olivia, was fantastic! She was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. We were celebrating our anniversary and were so pleased when we were seated at the back of the restaurant, next to a window with a beautiful view of the river away from the noisy main dining room. A few other couples were in the room and the vibe was very cozy and relaxed. The ambiance didn’t last very long because a party of 12 was seated right in the middle of the room. These people were VERY loud, we couldn’t hear each other; it was next to impossible to have a conversation much less hear our server when she came to the table. My filet was overcooked, I couldn’t eat it, they did make it right by cooking another one and by the time it arrived, we asked them to package it “to go”. Big disappointment for us. We always have a good experience at Ruth’s Chris and I had been looking forward to enjoying their filet all week. It’s definitely not the same reheated the next day.

    The food was fantastic and everything was on our table in a timely fashion. We had all courses served to us in less than an hour. The servers were friendly and talkative. We had a scenic view of the river and it was beautiful. It was a great place to have a late Valentine’s Day Dinner. They even scattered rose petals on our table!

    Overall, the atmosphere was very nice. I understand that when you go to Ruth CHRIS, your expected to spend considerable amount of money for the food items. I just have a hard time with $21 glass of wine that’s supposed to be a house wine, a nine dollar bottle of non-alcohol beer And $13 for a bowl of spinach and a couple of tomatoes and a couple croutons with some dressing. Charge me for the entrée, but there’s nothing there for the amount that is charged for the ancillaries. We will probably return at some point for another special occasion.

    Beautiful, elegant atmosphere! The food here is quite expensive, so make sure to dish out at least over $200 in case you really want to go all out. Their drinks were excellent, and the service was great! Beautiful candles, a rose given to us at our table, and we were in and out within an hour!

    Food and service are among the very best anywhere in Knoxville... my only complaint would be the seating arrangement for couples on valentines day. The tables were so close together there was no chance at even the illusion of private conversation. I understand wanting to create as many tables and doing as much business as possible, but part of the reason we spend $200+ for lunch is to enjoy the atmosphere as much as the food and service. Due to the intentional over crowding the atmosphere suffered on this particular visit...it's not this way on typical days, so I try to overlook it a bit...but again, at these prices I don't think it's too much to expect to be able to enjoy the conversation at your own table without being interrupted by the "quiet conversation" at the adjacent table. Overall enjoyable experience, exceptional food and service certainly make up for the tight spaces.

    The steak was served practically cold in the Center despite being ordered medium rare. The sides arrived lukewarm at best. The meal was surprisingly a disaster though the service was very good. I have never had poor food here until last night. We ordered the porterhouse for two and it came rushed and poorly presented as well as the cheesecake being forgotten until we brought it up. Probably will give the place another chance because this must have been a fluke.

    If you love seafood appetizers, then you can’t go wrong with their calamari and shrimp. Both are delicious. Their steaks are the best I’ve had anywhere. If you have room for dessert, their crème brûlée is stellar. We have eaten here several times and have everything we have ordered was delicious. Service is excellent. They even valet your car. Get a reservation!

    Fabulous experience. From the minute we walked in the door the hosts were polite and professional, the bartenders, though with a nearly full bar top, greeted us immediately and made excellent cocktails (thanks Nick!), our server Jamison as well as his SA (I believe her name was Leah) were over the top attentive and really put the cherry on top of the whole experience for our larger group. GM Jonathan was not only visible but checked on our group personally several times. Thank you, look forward to seeing you again soon.
