“Make a reservation and don't wear jeans.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2010

We didnt have a reservation, and they were sold out, so we took the next reservation and went to the the hotel bar for drinks. When we returned ofr our reservation, we waited five more minutes and got a table in their bar.

The waiters were conscientious and helpful.

“Outstanding Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2010

Took my fiance to Ruth's Chris for a late birthday celebration. Located in the Renaissance Hotel in Northbrook, it was relatively easy to find. It shares the lot with the hotel, and valet parking was available.

The staff there was wonderful. We were seated and immediately greeted by our waiter. He explained the menu, and promptly took our drink orders. We both opted for items off of the fixed price menu. We started with Lobster Bisque and a Caesar salad, both of which were fantastic. For dinner, I had a shrimp-topped filet and my fiance ordered the larger filet. Both arrived perfectly cooked on their signature 500 degree plate with a generous amount of melted butter sizzling on the plate. These are, bar none, the best steaks in Chicagoland. For sides, I ordered the garlic green beans and he had the corn casserole. Portions are large enough to share. The green beans were well-seasoned and the corn casserole had a little sweetness with that comfort-food feel.

Both dinners came with dessert which was a individual serving of carrot cake and chocolate mousse in a chocolate cup. The mousse was great. The carrot cake was a little dry and a bit too heavy to be paired with something as light as the mousse.

Wait staff was phenominal. The atmosphere has a quiet, romantic feel. Not something we can afford to do on a regular basis, but perfectly suited for a special occasion.

I'm not a steak or lobster person, but Ruth's Chris is a remarkable place. I went for my father's birthday party and loved the sweet potato casserole, asperagus and spring salad. I like the sides better than the meat, but that is excellent.

“Awesome steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2008

Ruth Chris is as good as it gets for steak. As other posters have mentioned, the price is a bit high, but it is definitely worth it once in a while. I love the sizzling steak as it melts in your mouth. Definitely an experience.
