WE have eaten here several times. Ruth Chris has the most flavorful, best cooked steaks anywhere. Period! Yeah it's pricey, but it's not an every-day thing either. More a celebration place.

This is our go-to place for special occasions. We have never been disappointed in the food or the service. I had the Surf-n-Turf and my bride had the Filet. Both dishes met our expectations. I also highly recommend the crème brule for dessert.

If you want a good steak and plenty of sides, this place is great. It's not inexpensive, but if quality is important you'll get it here.

It's been covered, but, it is a nice place, and I believe you should dress to reflect that atmosphere, at least business attire. Admittedly, I have seen patrons dressed in much less respectful attire.
