We went for a celebratory dinner to commemorate our 50th wedding anniversary. We shared the house salad, shared a baked potato and each had a steak. The only fri k was a beer. The food was very good, the service also very good. Our booth was near the front and the foot traffic passing by us was... read more

The food is top notch, but everything is ala-carte. Highly recommend ordering ONE potato to share (it's HUGE). The same goes with broccoli, etc. My only negative comment is that the wait staff will not tell you about the size of things like noted about. In general, a couple can expect to spend between $125.00 and $150.00 depending on cocktails.

We met 2 friends for dinner last night, our first time going to Ruth's Chris. We had reservations but were seated in a small room off the main dining room; the room was crowded, extremely loud and our table was tiny for 4 people. The food was decent but their solution to make it taste good seems to just smother... More

We went out to Ruth Chris Steakhouse with the family and was greatly surprised. I had one of the best steaks ever. If you like beef and are looking for a good one, try Ruth Chris!

Went to Ruth's Chris In Newington, Ct for a little Christmas celebration with my wife. We started with a cocktail and then right to the main event. My wife had the ribeye with au gratin potatoes as a side. The steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare and the potatoes were quite ample and half made the trip home.... More

Steaks are VERY expensive but if the food is worth it that would be ok. My steak was fatty at least one ounce was waste . My husbands steak wasn't all that tender. Won't go back again. We don't have the income to throw food away

The surf (lobster tails) and turf (filet steak) were very good - especially the lobster tails. But the service was painfully slow. Worth the wait, but unnecessary.

I do not like to give bad reviews, so this is hard. I have been to many Ruth Chris Restaurants and always had great food that was worth the expense (which is about $100 per person). This Newington, CT location was a disappointment. In the restaurants defense, I did not bring up any of the complaints to them as I... More

We reserved a table for 6 on a Friday evening. We were asked if it was a special occasion which it was, our daughters birthday so they handed out mardi gras beads to us. The birthday girl enjoyed the caramel appletini while i enjoyed the pumpkin martini. We all enjoyed our dinners ranging from steaks to salmon with sides of... More
