Way, way overpriced for the quality. My guest and I each ordered the ribeye steak medium rare. The quality advertised was "prime" which means lots of marbling and tenderness. I should have known better when the place setting came with sharp steak knives. The steak was cooked exactly as advertised, warm pink in the middle, so it wasn't the chef, it was the steak. Both of us had to hack away at this fifty dollar (?) half inch thick piece of meat from the grocery store.
I couldn't figure out what sort of sauce it was in or why there was sauce, but I see from another review that it was put on a sizzling plate of butter. No wonder I barely made it back home to evacuate my bowels. Way too much grease.
I seldom eat beef, but when I do, I love that steak house flavor, you know the one, but it was lacking here. A month ago I bought a New York from Safeway and fried it at home, and got the exact same flavor (except Safeway's was tender).
We also had to wait about an hour for the server after we were seated. When he showed up, he was really pushing the wine, too. The food did come hot, though.
When Ruth opened her Chris Steak House in Sacramento, my friends all raved about the size and the quality, so I was looking for something really terrific. Evidently when Ruth and her family sold out to the big corporation (NASDAQ: "RUTH"), the bean counters took over from the chefs. I hope all of the other franchises are not like this one, but I doubt if I'll find out because I'm not going to take another fifty dollar chance.
