Ummm do you like meat? Do you like good meat? Is meat part of your daily intake? Well meat you shall have my amigo. There is little in the way of words to describe the perfection you experience here. You pay for what you get folks...you won't be disappointed.

Went here on business a few weeks back so of course eat out at recommended places. Steak was great, very well cooked and exceedingly tasty Had the minestrone soup, filet, few glasses of red wine and a very rich chocolate dessert

This is by far the best steak ever served to me. I have done it several times and it never fails to amaze me how other establishments have tried to duplicate this experience and fail. I will always be a fan of Ruths Chris. I have also visited the Indy and Atlanta restaurants and this review also will apply to... More

We visited a couple of days ago. There was a bit of a formal atmosphere, which at first felt intimidating, however once we were seated and introduced to our server it was fine. We didn't have a starter as the portions looked huge and we were not disappointed. We both had steaks, the rib eye was rare as requested, and... More

A birthday evening on Chicago and no better place than Ruth Chris. Kiki was our server and she was delightful. The steaks were the best and great starters and drinks made for a perfect night. The restaurant is in a great location and is a comfortable place to enjoy a great evening.

Rib eye was excellent - so tender and buttery! And for me, a coffee lover, the coffee was spectacular!! Wish they were closer - I'd go just for the coffee.

I have been to Ruth's Chris Steakhouses many times all over the USA. The food and the service is always good and this Chicago location is just great. We were seated promptly and well served and the food was great. BUT, oh the price of this place is just too high to warrant 5 Stars. There is just no value.

Chicago restaurants tend to be a little pricey anyway, so to spend over 100.00 at at reputable steak house is not unheard of or unexpected. I ordered a 12 oz ribeye, my wife ordered crab cakes. We ordered shoestrings to share. The ribeye had good flavor, but surprisingly was a touch overdone. I ordered my steak medum-rare, to the rare... More
