We've eaten here a couple of times and had cocktails at the piano bar one evening. Service is excellent and the atmosphere is quieter and cozier than the Chicago Ruth's Chris. We celebrated our engagement here with steak and lobster. The food is of course phenomenal.

I'd never had a bone-in ribeye steak before, and this restaurant may have changed my life. Incredibly tasty and juicy when cooked medium-rare, took some onions on top and broccoli on the side (to keep the plumbing working). The soy and honey dip - mindblowing. Truffle butter also excellent. Avoid the hash brown and sweet potato sides unless your arteries... More

We loved everything we ate and split a meal and desert. For a special occasion, it can't be beat! The bar made me a wonderful champagne cocktail that wasn't on the menu as well.

I had the opportunity to take my special girl to dinner, we found if steak is on heaven's menu it comes from Ruth's. We had minimum wait and bill was not too high expensive for service and food received.

Still one of my favorite downtown restaurants. We went there to celebrate both a birthday and anniversary. They did great to recognize both with rose petals and beads taken to the table by the hostess. As always, the food is fantastic and the service is both fast and excellent. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because I... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the newly remodeled Ruth's Chris! The servers were a great team and very enjoyable. We ordered from the prixe fixe menu. Salads were very fresh. My filet was butterflied as suggested, and perfectly medium well. The apple cheesecake dessert and dark chocolate wedge were heavenly. Terrific evening!

We had a group of 12 and our evening went perfectly. The staff is some of the best I have seen. I would suggest the seafood tower as a appetizer for you table. No issues at all with any of our food.

I was so very disappointed in my meal at this establishment. When you go to a steakhouse and order a filet mignon, you do NOT expect to receive it spoiled!!!!!! I ordered the prix fixé choice on the menu, a six oz filet and grilled shrimp combo. When I tasted the meat it had a strange taste and odor. Confirmed... More

This is a great meal with top notch service. It is at the top end of the price scale, but it is worth every penny. If you want the best steak and service in town and you don't have a budget limit, you cannot go wrong here. Every steak is a winner and you will die for the lobster mac... More
