Dinner with friends

Had not been to a Ruth's Chris in many years. Had a get together with some friends and was able to get a table to accommodate all of us on a Friday night. Steak was one of the best I've had in a long time. Could cut it with a fork. Lobster bisque was up to par with what I... read more

I have never been to a Ruth's Chris but I have heard many good things and it definitely lived up to my expectations. The service was impeccable, from the servers personality to the back waiters class and sophistication, it was a real treat to see such attention to detail. The Seared Tuna was exceptionally fresh and perfectly balanced in a... More

Our family of five had a wonderful experience at Ruth's Chris Steak House on Christmas Ever. We were seated in the wine room which was very private and cozy. Our waitress was extremely kind and helpful. All ordered the boned-in filet which was so flavorful and tender. The side dishes of potatoes, asparagus and creamed spinach were wonderfully seasoned and... More

Excellent service and superb choice of steaks. Sides are excellent and served family style. Long wine list with great selection. Will need to take my wife on future anniversaries.

I've been in many different steak house in US in last 10 years and in general I love the quality of the meat and the typical american accuracy on cooking the steak in order to match the exact level of "Doneness" required. I asked for a New York Strip (Medium Well) and apart from the side (Fries) that were very... More

We had walked around for a while looking for a good place to eat when we came across this restaurant. The valet parking and frontage told me that this would cost more than we wanted so I asked to see a menu first, the first price I noted was 45 dollars for a steak dinner so we decided not to...

One of the last independently owned Ruth's franchises, this is a great choice for dinner downtown. Good choice for date night, business dinner or large groups. US Prime grade beef, cooked quickly, then put on a 1200 degree plate, hit with a little butter and served sizzling at your table. Sides are classic and delicious. Full bar, great wine list.

Showed up slightly early for reservations, dining room not yet open. Sat in lounge and had a very nice mixed drink. I got the large filet and we split a side. I knew I couldn't eat it all, but I made leftovers from the 1/2 I had left and it was just as yummy. I just love their filets!

The Rib Eye was good, but nothing really special for this price range. The service is pleasant, efficient and just present enough - so very good! The Petite Filet seemed to be a better cut of meat. I recommend the asparagus as one of the shareable side dishes.
