From the moment you enter until the last goodbye, this place sets the standards in service. Friendly forthcoming, not obtrusive. Waiters and supervisors introduce themselves by names, and immediately commit to give the best possible service. While we were engaged in a business discussion they would not impose themselves, follow up on other guests not to disturb, and then come... More

Had a wonderful meal and great service. The wine was really expensive for the type of wine you were getting. Located on South Shady Grove Road.

Ordered a medium rare strip, came out medium. They did offer to recook another, so don't let that deter you. Frankly, it is not worth ordering a steak elsewhere in the Princeton area if you are expecting a Ruth's quality cut of beef. Service was very good. The staff knows the values on the wine list. Sides are good. The... More

Ruth's Chris in Princeton is such a lovely place to go to when you want a special meal or celebrate a special occasion. We always find the food to be delicious and the service excellent. You definitely should have a reservation, and be sure to let them know if you are celebrating an anniversary, birthday, etc.

We went to RC on a Saturday evening after a day's worth of activities on campus. Someone earlier spoke to "dressing for dinner", and that they wouldn't return here because of the patrons not dressing to their standards. It is a lovely atmosphere, but it's also in a college town, and corporate area ... you will see people dressed in... More

Ruth's Chris has a great reputation and we were anxious to finally go there for our 35th Anniversary dinner. It is somewhat expensive but we had heard it was worth it. I can't complain about the meal itself, which was delicious, although I did mention to the maitre d' when he visited our table that there was far too much... More
