Shared an evening with friends-very enjoyable. Quiet enough to talk but not so quiet it is uncomfortable. Service is top notch. Food is top notch. Wine list is excellent.

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 Ribeye had a little... 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.

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 had a spicy lobster cream sauce appetizer that was very good. The staff were attentive and polite. We enjoyed the live... More
