Another Good Devour Downtown Destination

Went to Ruth Chris during Devour Downtown and we all had the 10oz Ribeye. It had a good flavor and the mashed potatoes were good. Lots of butter. The service was very good. Andrew was very personable and we never went long without getting refills on our drinks. I like Filet mignon so to me the... read more

Above average steaks with great ambiance and great martinis. The steaks come in a very hot plate with sizzling butter.

The piano bar downtown is classy and fun. Good people watching if you sit by the Windows!! We will be back soon. Fairly easy to get a seat even during busy game nights.

Two of my colleagues and I took three clients there for dinner recently and I am glad we picked this restaurant over the other establishments we considered. The food here is just phenomenal, my filet mignon was like butter, the perfect temperature (medium rare) and it practically melted in my mouth. The side dishes were delicious as well, we had...

We stopped here for a drink and appetizer before a show. I had a scotch neat and my wife had a pineapple martini that she has tried to recreate at home many times because it was so good! We had a spicy lobster cream sauce appetizer that was very good. The staff were attentive and polite. We enjoyed the live... More

Mode served us and he is great at his work, as well as very personable. We had appetizers and drinks. The food was really good. I had wine, but my friends had cocktails which they... More

This was our second visit to Ruth's Chris for our wedding anniversary. Both visits were worth the money. And is does cost a lot of money. If you have a couple of drinks each and a main course your bill for 2 people will run $150 to $200. The food is great and the personal touch is the icing on... More

The food and service was great. We shared the ahi tuna app, lobster bisque, filet, salad, mushrooms, potato. Everything was great. Our server did not rush us and we were there for over two hours. FANTASTIC night

Have eaten at the new north end RC's several times over the past few months. It is still expensive. However, the food, service, ambiance, drinks are all exemplary. I found myself arranging dates more for the opportunity to dine at RC's than to meet the gal of my dreams. One can eat at the bar, too and the food and... More
