“Ruth's has declined :(”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I usually love Ruth's Chris, but our recent visit was not up to the standard they have held in years past. Service was not as attentive, we were seated at our table for at least 15 minutes before our waiter came by for our drink order. We weren't even halfway done with our appetizers when our main entrees came out and when we were finished, it took another 20 minutes for the waiter to notice and have our plates cleared away. The food seems to be on the decline too--our au gratin potatoes were not cooked all the way through (they were hard and crunchy) and the creamed spinach didn't have the awesome garlic flavor they once had. My husband ordered his steak medium rare, but it came out very rare--still mooing; luckily they serve the steak on a 500 degree plate, so he was able to fix that by butterflying the steak open to cook on the plate a bit more to his own liking. I think we will pass on Ruth's in the future; you pay too much money for an awesome upscale experience and this last time I feel like we were duped!

“Wonderful Steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

We went to Ruth's Chris for christmas dinner and had a great time. We had been to the one in Beverly Hills before. The service was excellent and we had their price fixed menu. With the price fixed menu you pick a salad or a soup, your entree and it has dessert with it. I had the filet - which was wonderful. The plates are really hot, so don't touch the plates! All in all it is a very classy restaurant with great service and a nice atmosphere. We were all very happy and satisfied when we left.

“Great Steaks, Not a Value Oriented Place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Ruth's Chris is always a consistent, great steak. We had a banquet with almost 100 people and everything was served properly prepared and in a timely manner. This is almost never the case for so large a group.
The biggest downside was the drink service, especially wine, we had 2 bottles, 170.00 for the 2, bottles were served, then refills were done by the diner, no big deal, except when a gratuity of 18% added, plus a 3% additional banquet gratuity. To top it all, the invoice printed for the customer to sign shows only the total and a blank line labeled "Gratuity" as if none were included. I find this a very inappropriate practice. Watch your receipts closely here!
I should add that the bartender prior to dinner pours the best martini ever, at a very reasonable price!
