“Nothing like a steak sizzling in butter ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I love their steak! I haven't been to a Ruth's Chris in years and had the chance for a business dinner recently. The food didn't disappoint one bit.

Service was professional and friendly and pretty quick which was good. I hate the four hour business dinner and would prefer to move in and out without being rushed but in good time.

The tuna appetizer is recommended. Also really like the au gratin side with my buttery steak.

“Loved the steak.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

They had the only parking lot for the restaurant. They charged for it! It should've been free since we were having dinner there.

Prefix dinner was awesome! Loved the steak. Meat was so tender. Ordered a side of fries (with a little extra fee). So worth it.

Staff was super friendly.

“Too much attention”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I never expected to say that attention in a restaurant can be too much, but it was in this one. It was cloying and intrusive to the point that it spoilt the meal. In addition there was the manager and a woman with a check list constantly prowling the tables, presumeably to ensure that everything was up to standard. The food was Ok but nothing more and for some reason the plates were so hot (the waitress warned us about it so obviously it's standard) that the butter was actually boiling on mine.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We went to Ruth Chris Steak House for my wife's birthday and were not disappointed! They were able to accommodate our last minute addition to the table and get it reset with confetti and a birthday card for my wife (Thank You). We had the calamari as an appetizer, highly recommend, and everyone at the table ordered steak. All the steaks were cooked to perfection and veeeeeeeeerrrrryyy delicious. I can't think of another restaurant where my steak tasted so good. It was on the pricey side, but well worth it for a night out with our friends on a special day. The wait staff was really attentive, kudos to Kelsey who helped us understand the menu a little more and offered great suggestions.

“Excellent steak in downtown Salt Lake City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I went to Ruth's Chris in Salt Lake City with three of my colleagues, and all of us were quite familiar with the quality of Ruth's Chris restaurants everywhere. We expected the same from this Ruth's Chris, and we got exactly that. Located in downtown Salt Lake City, the restaurant is close to everything.

We made reservations and were seated promptly by the hostess. The dining room was a bit too dark, a bit too cold, and the table very small for four people. Indeed, as we ordered side dishes we ran out of room, and had to maneuver around. I ordered a Caesar salad, filet mignon, and sides of sauteed mushrooms and creamed spinach. The steak was cooked exactly how I wanted it, and came out sizzling on the plate. One of my colleagues ordered a side of asparagus with Holandaise sauce; all the sides were delicious.

As the majority of people know, Ruth's Chris is very expensive, and one gets excellent food and excellent service for the price, as well as the ambiance. We definitely got the excellent food, and the ambiance was not bad. The service was prompt, however, our server was a bit too familiar. We all ordered either wine or cocktails and the server collected our IDs, as prescribed by law. He returned with our IDs addressing us by our first names, commenting on ages. This bothered me, as familiarity in many situations is accepted and expected - this was not one of them. However, as this is the first time I encountered this at a Ruth's Chris, I am writing it off as a fluke.

In any case, Ruth's Chris did not disappoint overall, and if you're looking for a great steak (albeit with a LOT of butter), this could be your place. Make sure you try the bread pudding for dessert - it is heavenly, and one order is big enough to share. Bon appetit!
