“Great food and experience”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

I took my wife to Ruth's Chris Steak House for her birthday and we had a great experience. Her birthday conveniently coincides with restaurant week almost every year so we were able to experience the restaurant at quite a discount. The steak was cooked and seasoned excellently and the mashed potatoes were a good compliment. For desert we had a key lime cheesecake with chocolate pecan bark. It was delicious, although the cheesecake was quite soft - almost to the point of being a little "runny" in the middle. The wait staff was a good mix of being present whenever we needed them while not being intrusive.

We have been to several of the other top tier steak houses in the cities and this was our favorite. No complaints here.

“Consistently excellent from start to finish”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Ruth's Chris is definitely one of our favorite "go to" restaurants for an excellent dinner. We have celebrated many special occasions at Ruth's Chris and that alone speaks volumes. We are repeat customers who are consistently satisfied with the excellent food and service. The strip steaks are amazing, served very hot and juicy. Have enjoyed the filet as well, but prefer the juiciness and beefy flavor of the strip steak. The Caesar salad is perfect and all the sides are excellent, especially the creamed spinach. There is an impressive wine list and they serve excellent drinks, with quite an assortment of unique cocktails. Ruth's Chris is an upscale restaurant but one of the finest steakhouses here in the Twin Cities.

“Not on par with top steakhouses”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This was my first visit to a Ruth's Chris and if this is representative, will never be back. The steak was not impressive, nor was anything else really. I don't mind paying $100 for a dinner, but do not wish to pay that kind of price for one that is worth $40. The waiter was not well organized and kept telling us "that will be extra" as if we could not read the menu. He belonged at a mid tier facility, e.g. App*****'s, based on his interactions and skill. It's been a long time since I felt a little bit ripped off from going to a restaurant, but that's how I felt.

“Tenderloin not up to expected standards”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

I was expecting a juicy steak and was disappointed.  My tenderloin, ordered medium, was medium in the center but dry and medium well on the edges.   It was well seasoned and most of it was tender, but not as juicy as I expected except in the center of the cut.  For a premium steak house, I would expect every bite to be juicy.  I ordered a lobster tail to go with my steak which was cooked perfectly.  One of my party's tenderloin had gristle on the edge he could not chew. In fact, he had to discreetly deposit that bite into a tissue.   Tenderloin does not usually have fat on the edges or gristle.    The green beans were more hot and raw instead of cooked tender-crisp.  The mashed potatoes didn't have much flavor. Service was excellent and the fixed price menu was a good value.  We figured out that the fixed price menu (salad, entree, side and dessert) was the same price as an alacarte entree and salad. Based on the disappointing steak, especially since that is the main reason for going to a steak house, I would not return.

“Yes...”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I have had the opertunity to go visit several Ruth's Chris Steakhouses and I think this was the best. Took my son and niece there while visiting them and hoped for a special and memorable time. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is classic. But the thing that will bring me back was the food. Great steaks and sides, try the sweet potato hash! Along with the food and service was a first class wine list. Can't wait to go there again.
