Only place for a great steak!!

Great steak. We always request table in lounge area - a little more casual. Service was good and it was quite busy. Love the creamed spinach au gratin.

It is unfortunate that I an writing this review, because I have enjoyed Ruth's Chris in the past. From the moment I pulled up top the valet, I was told there was no room for my car, however, when I called the restaurant they made the valet park the car in front. Our service was average. The bread was incredibly... More

The steak here is delicious and they do offer different sizes so my husband and I order one serving of the steak , one of the salad , and one of the vegetables. Then we split everything and it is plenty for two. Our server Sean was so nice... when we asked him to carve our filet like a doughnut... More

We don't mind parking our own car and walking, but when we pulled into the restaurant the parking lot valet literally had every possible parking space conned off giving no choice to either park at the hotel in the back or on the grass on the side street. Extremely horrible setup and monopolized scam.

We try to hit a Ruth's Chris wherever we happen to be, and this one does not disappoint. The steaks were outstanding and the service incredible. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant. Two thumbs up!

I have been to Ruth's Chris many times but not very recent. Decided to celebrate my birthday there. Ordered Chilean Sea Bass and it tasted very fishy. Two of my guests found it to be the same and we all had to send it back. One person ordered steak and he was fine with it although it was not exceptional.... More

I've been wanting to return to Rith's Chris for a while and seized the opportunity of my birthday as a good excuse, if one was needed. i very much enjoyed the evening.

I've dined here twice last year. Once in the restaurant, once in the bar area. The food choices are different, both are very good.

My elderly parents took me out for my birthday. The table was nicely decorated with birthday confetti. Our waiter, Chris was friendly yet professional. We had calamari to start and it was fabulous. Salads next which were also great. Then the steak arrived....OMG, probably the finest filet mignon I've ever devoured. Truly a masterpiece. My dad had lamb chops and... More
