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

My Wife of 34 years is a carnivore---I like meat but she LOVES it--hence in celebration of our belated 34th August anniversary we went to Ruth's Chris. Atmosphere was dark--but food from the warm bread, salad and the "Porterhouse for Two"---GREAT! All of the staff seemed to go out of their way to make it a special occasion, including rose... More

We were seated right away with our reservations. Busy weekend night. Not enough servers. We waited for 10 minutes for server after being seated and asked hostess to send server to our table. Food is always very presentable and fresh. If you like steak it seems to be the specialty. I had Crabtini which i did not feel was real... More

We went here for my boyfriend's birthday this past week. It was very slow, but that was expected on a weeknight. The only thing is that once the restaurant started emptying out, we saw very little of our wait staff... I think the second half of our meal took much longer than necessary. The food was delicious, even though I... More

My husband and I recently had dinner here for my birthday and it was a great place for such an occasion. The service was very good, attentive and polite. They have a nice variety on the menu, even for those of you who do not like steak. But the smell of the steak cooking as soon as you walk in... More
