Professional staff and service. The location is consistent with others I've been to. Steak quality is very good and was cooked to perfection. Appetizers were very good. Had the hash browns as a side, too greasy for my taste. Excellent choice.

My son took me here as a thank you! Loved the valet parking! Seated right away for our 7:00 reservation. Very friendly and efficient servers! Food was good. Only bad thing the plates sooo hot that food kept cooking so steak got a little over done.

For our 24th wedding anniversary, we decided to try the newly remodeled downtown location. The hostess promptly seated us, as requested in my reservation on Open Table, by the window in the bar, a lively area with the crowd of usual patrons coming and going. It's a great place eat while watching people and the games on the TV screens.... More

Made reservations here for my husband's 70th Birthday and from start to finish, it was perfect-----doorman greeted us; hostess seated us immediately; a server brought water and bread; our waitress was pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient; everyone, including the manager stopped to wish Tom a Happy Birthday AND the food was excellent-steak, shrimp, and asparagus with a complimentary dessert!! We truly... More

1st Class as always. I believe this is the 18th year we've celebrated our anniversary with Ruth's Chris. Tonight, do to circumstances beyond my control, we had a 9pm reservation due to last minute arrangements. We went ahead and arrived at 7:30 thinking we could hang out at the bar until our table was ready. I let them know when... More

Steaks were very good. I had the T-bone, cooked just how I like it and great flavor. The calamari appetizer was very good, the sauce served with it was a sweet n sour flavor, very good. Staff was very professional.

The food was excellent (lobster Mac and cheese is quite the dish), steaks render and the drinks strong. We were in a business group of 12 and the service was a bit slow. Nothing to bad, just lapsed. The food, however, made it a good night for our clients.

Ruth Chris' has been remodeled into a more modern decor. Personally, I preferred the former more traditional look. Previously, when you entered the front door, you were hit with this wonderful smell that just made you drool. Now, that welcoming smell is gone. I didn't really notice any smell at all. We always order the steaks for our entrees and... More

I am a big fan of Ruth's. I travel regularly to USA and every time depending on the location I make a point to stop by get a decent steak. I always order exactly the same items so I could say I am able to compare different restaurants of Ruth's. Good: - service. Dan was very welcoming, helpful and attentive.... More
