This was my first steak ever and it was delicious! After reading reviews, we shared 1 medium rare filet, lobster Mac n cheese and creamed spinach. The lobster Mac n cheese was a very large but so delicious, however the spinach lacked seasoning. Despite sharing 3 dishes, with no starters, we were absolutely stuffed. The waiter brought us flaming strawberries... More

We ate here as a family of 4 while on vacation from the UK. It was actually my 50th birthday so we were looking for a top quality steak and we certainly got it. We had booked in advance, which we needed to as it was full. The service was great, the food excellent. We all went for the steaks... More

We were shopping in this street last evening when decided to look for a place to dine. Didn't have far to look as upstairs we spotted this attractive looking restaurant which overlooked the vibrant street life below with a central avenue of palms showing off their night lights. Decided to sit outside and enjoy this vista. Scott was our waiter... More

My wife and I own a cattle ranch in Nebraska. We love to try different steakhouses. We decided to try this steakhouse and we're glad we did! The steaks were delicious and the best we have had on the island! This coming from a rancher who is very picky about the quality and taste of his steak! The staff was... More

We opted for an outdoor table and were very pleased. As always, the service was leisurely paced just as we would want it to be. Our waiter was excellent and support staff was too. The filets we ordered were cooked to perfection, however, I had ordered blue cheese crumbles and they brought blue cheese crust. They took it back and... More

Most disappointed with this restaurant. Whilst its high class and the food quality is of a high standard the Steaks are extremely expensive , most expensive i have ever seen (and we come from the most expensive part of West Australia). Once the waiter realised we did not want the steak , he lost interest in our table very rapidly.... More

This was on quite a few people's 'must do' list. The restaurant itself was lovely and the staff great, but when the sweet potato side outshines everything else, I think that's pretty telling. It's very expensive steak. Being from Australia, we find the idea of 'corn feed' a bit disconcerting - shouldn't cows eat grass? The filet was delicious and... More

I think this is a restaurant resting on its staff and reputation. The steaks we're overpriced and so were the sides. The broccoli was the best of my meal and McDonalds would have thrown the fries out about two days prior. Heading to be a tourist trap.

Description
In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.
