Great food. Poor Service

We were here Saturday. We have been to many Ruth's Chris restaurants. The food was great. The service was poor. It started out OK. We got our drinks. But we waited at least ten minutes to have our order taken. No water refills, we had to ask. Not as attentive as we are used too.

This restaurant was at the hotel I was staying at. Excellent service and I had a great 8 ounce filet that was done perfectly. Loved the upscale ambiance.

Th atmosphere is okay, and the service is adequate, but the food is no more than average and overpriced. In particular, the crab cakes were swimming in butter and served on a very hot dish - reason for this? The salad was so-so. The only attribute of this restaurant is its location in the Renaissance Hotel.

Best light grilled Tuna with an unbelievable sauce. It had kick without the traditional soy sauce and wasabi.of the appetizers are great and superb value. The large filet with butter is the best filet of any steakhouse and the escargot with bits of mushroom added to the garlic butter sauce will put you in pig's heaven. The atmosphere leave plenty...

We came to dinner on Saturday night late to have a childless night out lol. This was not our first meal at Ruth's Chris, I have eaten at ones around the country dozens of times before.The Wisconsin-Kentucky game was on so we sat at the bar and watched the first half. The bartender makes a great Filthy, Nasty dirty martini!... More

I have heard wonderful things about the restaurant chain Ruth Chris from friends and family. I decided that I will try the location in Northbrook, IL for my birthday. It turned out to be a complete disappointment. I sat with a party of 5 including myself. We order a few things & of course ladies love steak and seafood. So,... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal in this restaurant. Our server could not have been more gracious. The atmosphere is romantic and low-key, and we had a terrific dinner (filet). We split an entree and the server was so matter of fact about it instead of acting as though it was an inconvenience, etc. Everything was perfect from start to finish:... More

We ate at Ruth Chris Saturday night. We both ordered filet. I have allergies and asked for my meal to be prepared plain no seasoning or butter. Unfortunately my filet had been seasoned and I had to have it re made. Second time around was correct.

This restaurant is a classic steakhouse with subdued lighting, dark wood, and leather! Very comfortable setting with good service. Food choices are mainly though not limited to steaks; pork chops, chicken, and fish are available though face it - steak is the main idea here. Entree serving sizes are good; sides are smaller though acceptably sized. Preparation is excellent and... More

I have not been to this restaurant since living in another state. This is usually an awesome restaurant. I am very confused how bad this was on the night of 1/30/15. I had the Cowboy ( a rib-eye, which is a cut off the prime rib). I know the difference between the "first cut" and "second cut" off a prime... More
