I made reservations for my husbands 50th Birthday. It was a surprise so he had no idea until we got there. We had been to the other location years ago and were very happy so looked forward to having a great Birthday meal. WRONG!!!
Started out with a great table by the window, (got to look at men's buts while they went outside to smoke, and some poor homeless elderly woman going back and forth, back and forth looking for cigarette buts) But a window seat downtown, hey what do you expect. The table had birthday glitter sprinkled on it, our waiter came to the table with 2 glasses of champagne and gave a wonderful toast for my husband. we looked at the menu, I ordered the Ruth Chris special which included, filet, salad and dessert. I also said we would like scalloped potatoes to share and did not mind the extra charge. My husband asked what was good, the waiter talked him into the filet bone-in. he got that with a salad. we told him how we liked our steaks (Pink, NOT red in the middle) he suggested medium well, little pink, no blood. we enjoyed our salad and potatoes. when the steaks came we were sooo excited! all it took was a knife and fork to see it was a disaster! my husbands steak was rare, I mean RARE!!, RAW! mine was WELL DONE! no pink, no juice, chewy and tasteless. the place was packed, we waited for a bit for our waiter to come by, finally we picked at it, my husband ate around the edges of his and I ate about 3 bites of mine, that was all I could stomach. Finally our waiter came back around, I stopped him and showed him our steaks. he said he was so sorry, that it should not have been that way. he then said alan was going to get a free dessert because it was his birthday and I could order of the dessert menu because of my steak. remember my dessert was included) we each ordered off the dessert menu and enjoyed them. Well we were already very disappointed in our steak, then the heart stopper. the bill.... $151.00 OMG I could not believe it. he had 2 beers, I had a drink. $151.00 FREAKING DOLLORS!!!! he charged us for the champagne toast (we didn't ask for it and thought it was complimentary) he charged us for BOTH desserts. he told us earlier in the meal my husbands was free and mine was also because of the steak. (remember, originally mine was included). we were both in shock!! my husband was already upset over his supposedly best steak in the world (so the waiter said) so I did not make a big deal out of the bill acting like it was no big deal, telling him it was his 50th and it did not matter. I am still fuming, and after he found out how much I paid he is too. we will NEVER, NEVER GO BACK, and I am telling everybody I can about the experience.
