My friends and I went to Ruth Chris for my birthday celebration on 10/01. The service was fantastic and the food was out of this world! It is very pricey, but well worth it! None of us were disappointed!

We went to Ruth's Cris for the first time to celebrate our 9th anniversary. What an awesome experience, from beginning to end. The valet parking drivers were friendly and conscientious. The host got us seated promptly even though we were early for our reservation. The restaurant is elegant yet comfortable. The wait staff was superb. Carlos was very attentive without... More

My dinner and the service were fantastic...as always! However, they just converted their credit card system to the chip service the day I had dinner...and they were having problems with it. Unfortunately, I was unable to use my corporate card and had to use my personal card. The General Manager, Jim Martin was completely unsympathetic. I was given a curt,... More

Great restaurant and excellent service. I have been going to this restaurant for years and still has the same standard. Quality steaks and good sides along with a great wine list.

From hostess, waiters and most importantly the food.. it's a special place that never disappoints us. When you want the best steak around, wonderful sides, and great wines, it's always on point!

Cocktails start the madness ! One of the most expensive Martini's I ever had ! The steak is good ..... but save up ;) . Ala carte sides are definately not as good as in the past. It appears all the chefs are not following previous recipies because they are not as good. The service is very good

Great food, love the ambiance & the service. Celebrated my birthday there & it was a wonderful experience. Love to go there for a great steak dinner. The steak is the best serves on a hot plate and their lobster mac & cheese is out of this world. Server are always attentive & around.

I took my son here during my extended-weekend visit in July for his birthday. We had the Crab Cakes and the Spicy Shrimp for appetizers, and the Cowboy Ribeye and New York Strip for our main meals. For desert we both opted for the Cheesecake, which was great and plentiful. The Crab Cakes were outstanding with a great mixture between... More
