Food was great. Way too pricey for what you get. But for special occasions it would be fine. Wait staff was excellent. We were there for our anniversary.

We went to Ruth Chris to celebrate a 40th with friends. Our waiter was Vlad, who patiently explained the specials twice, and made sure we had a great time. I'm not a steak eater, but everyone raved about their steaks. I had the shrimp over mashed potatoes. The sides are large enough to share and delicious (esp the spinach gratin).... More

We have eaten here over the past years but not for a while so gave it a try. It was nowhere near as good as previouse visits. The waitress was not up to par, she clanked the water glasses when pouring the water, she had trouble opening the wine and there was cork in my glass and proceeded to bang... More

friendly, efficient staff. our server Pat (female was perfect).the restaurant interior is understated, and very comfortable. our food, tomato and onion salad was most likely the best i have ever eaten. our steaks,,,,,ny strip and rib eye, were excellent. and, it was not as expensive as other, lesser steakhouses in the area.

Since this Ruth's Chris is rarely open for lunch, we chose Mother's Day to take my very elderly father and Aunt since they prefer not to go out at night. We were one of the first parties to arrive but there was some confusion as to what waiter had our table. After flagging down a hostess they finally took our... More

I have heard from many people how great this place was and had a $200 gift card to go there and brought someone with me. Ordered the fillet mignon and I've never had to try so hard to cut through that kind of steak before. The sides were expensive and nothing special but still would have complemented a good cut...
