We hosted a dinner for 50 and had a terrific time. Our guests raved for the entire visit about their meal. RC allowed our guests several choices instead of a set menu and everyone could select how they wanted their steak cooked. Everything came out great, no steaks sent back and the service was good. Would definitely recommend.

Yes, you pay for the food.. But at $100+ per person, there is a level of expectation when it comes to service. We got there before our friends and had a drink at the bar. When we were shown our table, there was no offer to take our drinks for us. Then the restaurant was practically empty, yet we were... More

We wanted great steak and we did find this at Ruth's Chris Steak House. Our only criticism of the meals is the amount of butter on the steak and on the side dishes. In our opinion it took away from the flavour of what would have been a perfect steak. The service was great, but unfortunately we felt extremely rushed... More

I had reservations & still had to wait a 1/2 hr to be seated! The Ahi Tuna was WAY to salty, the steaks weren't soft to cut and service was slow even though they weren't real busy. I will not go back. Prices too high!

Ruth's Chris Steak House is one of the best meals I have ever eaten, period. Filet...unbelievable.. Twice baked potato...wow.. Bowl of buttered peas...ridiculous. Best steak I have ever eaten. My friend got the Cowboy Ribeye.. delicious. A true test of how incredible and outstanding this meal was is this. The group of 8 of us discussed nothing but how wonderful... More

We ate here for NYE but with a 9.30pm reservation we were done by 10.45 so headed back to our hotel to see in the New Year. We were seated upstairs which seems to lack the atmosphere of the ground floor and when we left there were only 3 tables occupied upstairs but packed downstairs. The food was very good... More

Ribeye was outstanding. cooked perfectly, best steak I've ever eaten. Salmon was boring and bland. Received a free dessert for celebrating our anniversary. The Crème Brule was fantastic. Next time we will ask for a booth. We were seated right next to the stairs to go upstairs, was kind of obnoxious.
