Dropped in on the off chance of an early table. Had one of the best steaks I have ever had. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful with making food selections.

Finished the day at Merchandise Mart. Needed a good meal close by. Walked in. Seated at once. Excellent service. Good wine suggestion. My Sea bass was excellent...Rest of group ordered steak. All very happy. Sides of veggies excellent. Not over cooked. Wait staff excellent. Noise moderate so conversation was easy . Not cheap. Never is. But worth it.

The steak was excellent. fortunately we had a gift card as it was very expensive. The atmosphere was very casual and bar like. I expected more from a place in this price range.

As soon as we sat down we knew it was going to be an awesome experience. Justin, our waiter, was very accommodating. He made suggestions and understood our concerns. We have been to many steak restaurants in the city. Many chefs tend to over season the steaks so we have learned to ask for no seasoning and season them, if... More

I was very disappointed in our trip to Ruth's Chris in Chicago. My wife loves Ruth's Chris, and we were very disappointed when they closed the restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. We've dined at Ruth's Chris all over the country, from DC, to Manhattan. This was the worst experience we ever had from a service perspective. The steak was fantastic, but... More

A very expensive meal, as is typical of the contemporary steakhouse, which is supposed to reflect top-end beef and service. Unfortunately, although the food met most expectations,the service element wasn't worth the bill. The first interaction with the restaurant was a rather officious phone call confirming our reservation and letting us know that there was a dress code of no... More

Spectacular restaurant with excellent service. We were greeted by a friendly staff as soon as we walked through the door. Once we checked in for our reservation they wished me a happy birthday. We decided to have a seat at the bar for a drink before dinner and the bar service and drinks were excellent. My husband said the Old... More

For many years, this restaurant chain has prepared consistently superb steaks, possibly the most consistent in Chicago's crowded steak offerings. Their wine list is extensive with fine, even superb wines at various price levels. The staff, especially our waiter was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. He was a great representative of the restaurant. The steak, on a sizzling hot plate, was... More

Perfection. The best value is to order the chefs specials. They come with salad and choice of steak and dessert. I had the 6 oz filet with grilled shrimp, strawberry-blue cheese-almond salad, and for dessert key lime cheesecake with raspberry sauce and chocolate pecan bark.

So Ruth Chris is the place you come to when you aren't looking for too many over the top options or uptight menus...you come here for a great steak and potato and a pretty good selection of drinks. Most recently they have entered the happy hour business, while I wont recommend the drink it's a little sweet for my taste,... More
