I don't think this review will be of much help, but will lay it out there anyway. Three family members, all experienced steakhouse diners, paid a visit to Ruth Chris' in downtown Philly. We started off with fried calamari, which was very good. Our chopped salad was deceivingly big, enough to feed... read more

As expected, the steaks are nearly life-changing, the service is over-the-top, the setting is lush and luxurious. Ruth's has a well-earned reputation for excellence and goes beyond merely having a meal and becomes a culinary experience not to be missed.

My wife and I were blessed to have Liz as our professional waiter. We were made to feel welcome and special. We enjoyed Poterhouse for two along with some amazing cocktails and appertizers. Dessert was amazing. We have been turned on to Ruth's Chris Steak House and will go back to a local restaurant near where we love. Keep up... More

The atmosphere at the Philadelphia location leaves alot to be desired. When you're paying that much for admittedly great food, you expect better lighting and surroundings. The restaurant occupies what had been the mail room for a large office building back when, and that is exactly the feeling you get while dining there...you're in the mail room! To be fair... More

If you have never been to a Ruth Chris Steak House, I don't know what you're waiting for. I have never had a bad meal here. In fact, I frequently moan over my meal. The food is served on plates heated to 500 degrees to keep it hot (they tell you not to touch, trust me, I have been the... More

We made a last minute decision to fine here after seeing a show across the street at the Wilma Theater. We arrived at 9:20pm. I am hoping that the late arrival is why the food was sub-par. Both steaks were over-cooked. Mine was significantly over-cooked. The broccoli au gratin was mushy and unimpressive. I expected much better food for the... More

A visit to this restaurant was pleasing. This was a dinner before a show at the Academy of Music. The wait staff were very aware of the time for us as they did not want us to be late for our musical. The appetizers (lobster bisque, caesar salad and gumbo) were served at the right temperatures. The main entrees (stuffed... More

The location is very good for The Kimmel center visitors. You can have a bite before the performance. The steaks are very good, excellent service. a bit pricey.

Had an as usual, great experience at R.C. last night. Reservation seating, on time. Nice quiet table in corner that seated 4 but only 2 of us. Waiter, Sean, perfect all night. First time tried house salad w/blue cheese and really pleased. Martini's good and cold. Steaks came as ordered and creamed spinach (my favorite) up to usual standard. The... More

Make sure you bring your big boy wallet and your tipping cash. From the second you pull up, be ready to be treated -- valet parking at the door (I wish EVERYWHERE in Philly had valet). I typically suggest making a reservation, but attendance has been down as of recently, so you may be able to get some walk-in seating... More
