Great Service, Average Food, High Price

Ruth's Chris Steakhouses are always thought of as a top shelf restaurant with fantastic steaks. My title says it all. I was not impressed with the steak, shrimp or potato I ordered. However, the service was top notch and they pour a good cocktail. The steak was thinner than I thought it would... read more

We had an outstanding dinner and service at Ruth Chris last night. Michael was very attentive and made my birthday dinner special. A little on the pricey side but after experiencing the quality of the food and service it was worth the cost. We will definitely be returning for our next special occasion.

Ruth's Chris is one of my all time favorite steak houses. My favorite meal is the filet cooked medium rare with a side of there delicious shoe string fries. The complimentary bread is even excellent. For an appetizer I ordered the carpaccio, (ask for it because not on the menu) its 100%! DELICIOUS! The filet is served in boiling butter... More

Was there on a Wednesday night at 6:45pm and the place was bustling. Waited only 10 mins for a table for 2. First question was: "what are we celebrating tonight?" We said it's for my bday and out came cute mini happy bday confetti sprinkled on the table. Nice touch. We ordered lemon drops - first things first! Great taste!... More

Ruth's Chris seldom disappoints. Great food, nice environment, friendly staff. The only downside is waiting to have your car retrieved by the valet.

We went out to dinner on Friday Night. The ambiance is nice, service was great & food was awesome. I had the Ribeye & it was delicious, cooked exactly the way I ordered it. Our server was very friendly. Overall we had a good experience. BTW, this place is not cheap as it's a classy restaurant.

You cannot ask for better. The first time I dined at Ruth's Chris Steak House it was to unexpectedly celebrate my 37th Wedding Anniversary with relatives in town from Napa, New Jersey, and Brooklyn. Everyone left delightfully full and deliciously satisfied. I look forward to dining there every chance possible.
