“The Delivery Did Not Live Up To The Reputation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Went for our anniversary dinner this week....

Ambiance was great until a point.... (more below)

Our mixed green strawberry salad started us off nicely.

My filet was delicious, but the Caribbean lobster tail was a bit dry.
- the mashed potatoes could have used some seasoning, or served twice-baked. they were just kinda plain
- the green beans were delicious, but again - just plain

My wife said that her scallops were delicious
- although she only got 4 average-seized scallops
- they definitely weren't the Jumbo scallops you're used to a most high-end eateries

The dessert of lemon custard w/ dark chocolate was delicious

Overall the good was good, but nothing exciting.

The Spanish red Rioja (mostly Tempranillo) was awesome
- wine list is extensive, but also EXPENSIVE
- no many medium / low priced wines
- didn't note any local wines on the list

Service was professional and good, and our romantic dinner was going well

Disappointment: That a restaurant of such statue has no dress code or that doesn't protect it. Definitely not "business casual" here, as the party next ours must have missed the sign for TGI Fridays and landed up sitting next to us. They looked like they walked straight out of the 'hood -- wearing t-shirts, sideways ballcaps and hoochie momma skirts, and the juvenile was playing video games loudly the whole time.

I'm not a clothes snob by any means, but know what appropriate attire means. What ever happened to 'dress codes' and turning inappropriately dressed patrons away
- I guess it's just the economy.

Would definitely recommend.

“Great steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Good service, great steaks. To be expected at that price. Wine liste a bit short and pricey. Nice and classic diner.

“Completely predictable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

If you're looking for a great steakhouse with spinach, potatoes and good drinks, Ruth's Chris is it. Don't expect anything imaginative. Management had to be coaxed to compensate for service problem.

“Chain food at it's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

We can always rely on excellent food At Ruth Chris . A chain worth the money. Kimberly, our waitress went above and beyond attending to my husband's health limitations and we were duly impressed. Steak and lobster was wonderful, as usual. The only problem is they do not have a lot and if you are from out of town and not familiar with the area, parking is complicated due to one way streets. Park in nearby garage or if lucky, on a side street. They insist you make a reservation.
