“Big Steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We visited a couple of days ago. There was a bit of a formal atmosphere, which at first felt intimidating, however once we were seated and introduced to our server it was fine.

We didn't have a starter as the portions looked huge and we were not disappointed. We both had steaks, the rib eye was rare as requested, and it was very tasty. The lobster mac n cheese was good and there was a good quantity of lobster.

We enjoyed but probably would not return.

“Ruth Chris Does It Again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

A birthday evening on Chicago and no better place than Ruth Chris. Kiki was our server and she was delightful. The steaks were the best and great starters and drinks made for a perfect night. The restaurant is in a great location and is a comfortable place to enjoy a great evening.

“Awesome Rib Eye and the best coffee ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Rib eye was excellent - so tender and buttery! And for me, a coffee lover, the coffee was spectacular!! Wish they were closer - I'd go just for the coffee.

“Excellent experience except for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

I have been to Ruth's Chris Steakhouses many times all over the USA. The food and the service is always good and this Chicago location is just great. We were seated promptly and well served and the food was great. BUT, oh the price of this place is just too high to warrant 5 Stars. There is just no value.
