It's been a while since I've been here but always remember a great meal. I had gone with a group of colleagues from Europe. They can't get enough good beef when they are in the US.

Went here on Friday for a special dinner. While it was expensive the food, service and atmosphere was definitely worth it. Especially for a chain, I was pleasantly surprised. They know how to cook a good steak! Great for a special occasion. We enjoyed and will be back!

I have eaten at Ruth Chris many times in many locations, and it is by far the best steakhouse I've eaten at. I would recommend the sausage gumbo for an appetizer, and obviously the filet mignon for an entree. If you are not fond of steak, they offer succulent lobster and flavorful stuffed chicken. For dessert, the apple tart is... More

Just had dinner here for the first time about two weeks ago (in late Dec. 2014). The place was PACKED, considering that this place is extremely pricey for dinner. My husband and I ordered off of the 3 course dinner menu and I had salmon w/grilled shrimp. We ordered sides of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. The salmon was delicious,... More

We celebrated the New Year with friends by having dinner at the local Ruth's Chris. We requested a booth in our reservation to enjoy a more intimate conversation over dinner. Management honored our request for the booth in light of the fact that they were expecting 800 guests for dinner. Our waiter delivered very good service keeping in mind the... More

The Princeton Ruth's features a Happy Hour from 4-7 weeknights. We had prime cheeseburgers with fries for $7. One guest had a caesar salad and an entree off the regular menu. We shared a spicy lobster appetizer, sautéed mushrooms and broccoli. all cooked to perfection. Service was excellent and I don't think you can find a better hamburger in the... More

We have been to the Altantic City Ruth Chris, which had excellent service. Not so much is Princeton. The filet was excellent but the ribeye my husband had for his birthday meal was tough. They made a mistake on the order - no butter on the ribeye and butter on the filet. When they came back corrected, the ribeye was... More

Sometimes a restaurant functions as efficiently as a Rolex watch; this one does every time. We have been to many of the best steakhouses in NYC and elsewhere, but in the crucial criteria of food, wine, service, and ambience, none exceeds this Ruth's Chris. My wife and I visited for the eighth time on Friday, December 19, to celebrate the... More

If the crowd at Ruth's Chris in Princeton last night is any indicator, the US economy is definitely improving. We could barely move in the bar area for pre-dinner cocktails and service was painfully slow. However, the Manhattan and martinis were excellent. Service in the restaurant was also on the slow side and perhaps attributable to shortage on the staffing... More

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
