It is really good

Classy place (they bring you white or black napkins depending on the color of your trousers/skirt) with excellent steaks. Already the way the waiter talks you through the menu is a pleasure to listen to. Not only steaks, they have also excellent seafood including Boston lobster, and every detail is... read more

We were there quite often for special occasions or just want to have some delicious steaks. We were never disappointed in their food or service.

I've eaten at the Ruth's Chris steakhouse in Philadelphia on several occasions, and the meal was always wonderful. My experience at the Princeton location during a business meal, however, was disappointing. My ribeye had a fair amount of fat and gristle, and wasn't very tender. The onion rings were terrible - the batter had separated from the onion. Even my... More

Went here on Friday with 3 other women to celebrate my birthday. I chose Ruth's Chris because I've had fabulous experiences with Ruth's Chris' in other cities, e.g., Baltimore, Annapolis, DC, Philadelphia as well as the New Orleans location the week prior. The Princeton location does not live up to their name or brand reputation. Service was poor, 3 of... More

Great place for a romantic dinner or a birthday party. Food and service were the best. Told them it was our anniversary and we had a special treat for my wife and I - different from many other places!

We just went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse because the food and service are superior! This time, our wait staff was Samantha and she was accompanied by Christopher. What a great team. Our every need was met and exceeded. The food (rib eye steak, creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes) was delicious in every way! Perfectly cooked and perfectly served. Yes,... More

For years my wife and I have celebrated special occasions at Ruth's Chris because it is outstanding in every criterion that matters when evaluating a restaurant. These include food, service, and ambience. We visited on Friday, August 8, for my wife's birthday, and as always we enjoyed a perfect meal. Salads, entrees, side dishes, and desserts were delicious. We both... More

Hard to believe this id a chain restaurant. Its pure class with always great steaks. When hungry this never fails to please. The service matches the food and ambience.

This was out first time at Ruth's Chris. We had a small filet with shrimp and it was delicious, (we all agreed). Service was concerned and efficient. The mashed and creamed spinach were perfect accompanyments. We hppened to be there during Happy Hour at the bar and saw a crowded bar with many, if not most, people eating in the... More

Never have been disappointed in the Ruth's Chris brand and the Princeton location is no exception. Great service, perfect steak, my favorite wine - what more can you ask for!
