My husband and I visited as we were away celebrating our anniversary. There was nothing impressive about this place at at. The food was absolutely overpriced for what it is. The mashed potatoes are powdered and everything is just soaked in garlic butter. The service was ok but nothing special. Take the drive north to Steakhouse 85 in New Brunswick!... More

My wife & I have been there about five times for diner to-date. Every dinner has been outstanding. The service has been outstanding as well the side dishes and main courses . There is ample self service parking or valet if you wish.

Ruth Chris in Princeton is arguably the best Ruth Chris you will find anyplace. I have had dined at lots of Ruth Chris but find the Princeton as the best. If you are in Princeton area and craving for a steak than you should go directly to Ruth Chris!

I recently attended a birthday celebration at Ruth Chris. Its always been a favorite of mine but this was my 1st visit to the Princeton location. Thumbs up and 5 stars to the staff, atmosphere and of course the food was awesome. They never disappoint. I will visit that location again.

Decided to dine at Ruth Chris when staying at Westin hotel just a few minutes walk away. Was a nice relaxed dinner, not rushed at all. Service was top notch, especially from our server AJ. We both had the "classic" dinner, which is a starter, main entree and dessert. Filet mignon was excellent, cooked as ordered. Lump crabmeat had a... More

I always love Ruth Chris' steaks and this is why I go there. When we want a great steak we do Ruth Chris. Food quality, perfect. My issue lately is price. Not sure if the prices have gone up but when a family of 4 pays $520 with tip in Princeton something is out of whack. We had 3 salads... More

It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted to commentate that with a special dining experience that was comparable to this memorable event. We had wanted to try the Ruth Chris restaurant and felt this was the opportune time. We called for reservations, at which time we were told there was a dress code of business casual. Nice...there was a... More
