Expensive, but worth it.

The food is great. Simply great. The steaks, filets and other meats are expertly prepared. The side dishes, expensive as they are, are delicious. The deserts, oh, I could go on about the deserts for hours. The staff is friendly, a bit too formal for me, but they do know what they are talking... read more

This is a good restaurant, with excellent service. Waiters know when they are needed, and when they should disappear. Our server provided an excellent wine suggestion, as well as meal choices based on personal cooking preferences. He provided good advice, without insisting though. Do not hesitate to ask them questions - they are very knowledgeable. Food is good, but very... More

I would not have chosen to come to Ruth's Chris for dinner, it was my BF's choice. Service was attentive but just too formal for me. I booked under my name and they started calling my BF "Mr X" (my last name) which we giggled at but really, it's not 1950. Don't assume we're married and the name I booked... More

I don't usually eat an entire steak, but their rib eye was fantastic! I have dreams about how delicious that steak was. And their tempura onion rings were the best I have ever had. We went for our 23rd wedding anniversary and they made it special. Will definitely go back.

I went here with a friend before a movie and they had great prices for good food and drinks. Our server was excellent, as well, and made us feel welcomed and important as she worked to keep our water glasses filled and drink orders taken. I had the beef brochettes and my friend had the seared Ahi tuna. Both of... More

Been to many Ruths with varied results and this was consistent. We had a nice nice table but quite dark, difficult for us oldies to read menu so opened blinds and much better. Great menu with lots of choices. Services was good, server was more in to himself than looking after customers. Food was in general amazing, exception was NY... More

I've always heard about Ruth Chris steakhouse and their sizzling plates for years and years - probably at least 10 years. I have always wanted to give it a try and I decided to splurge for dinner. The restaurant is tucked away in Bellevue Square so it is a bit difficult to find. We went there on a weekday night... More

Lunch here is much cheaper than dinner. We had the black and blue salad and the prime Burger. Both were very good. The flank steak on the black and blue salad was slightly tough. But had great of flavor. The waiter was very amazing. The dinners here are outstanding. Order the porterhouse for two people, for a over-the-top experience. We... More

Who does steak better? Only a few so let's stay on the medium rare filet with a side of asparagus and potatoes and a bottle of rich dark red Cabernet and forget relative excellence - this is a lifelong love affair based on getting what I want every time I want it - great steak and steakhouse experience
