While deciding on a birthday location for someone, Ruth Chris was mentioned as a choice location. Everyone was talking about how great and expensive the food was there and highly recommended. The birthday celebration ended up being at another location but I finally got to go for myself a few days later. I was very impressed with the customer service received and attentiveness and professionalism of our servers. The food was very tasty and we did not have to wait long before being served. Very serene and elegant atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant, but please keep in mind beforehand that some of the meal choices are quite expensive. Suggest reviewing the menu and prices before your arrival if pricing will be of a concern.

As I was thinking about what to say here, it occurred to me that what attracts us to Ruth's Chris is not its outstanding reputation for beef, but its combination of simply prepared food in an elegant setting with a calmness that we don't often find in other restaurants. I should say that we had lobster tail and a swordfish special and both were prepared to perfection.

Good things: Portion-size

Taste compared to other Ruth Chris's: Sides ok but the steak was spot on.

Seafood: I won't try again here (I guess you have to go to a real seafood house.)

Attention to detail: Sucks. My food had extra in-edible items.

A Manager did come out to see if I wanted anything on the house, I decline his offer.

My rating price wise is based on the type of experience I had.

Thank you for your candid feedback. I'm very sorry to hear that we were unable to provide you with a five-star experience. Your sides should have been just as impressive as your steak, so I'd like to know more about this, as well as specifically which seafood dishes you tried. While I know you mentioned that a manager did stop by your table to see if there was anything they could do to make your meal better, I would still love the opportunity to discuss your recent experience in greater detail. If you are so inclined, please feel free to reach out to me directly at davidm@ruthschris.net or 803.212.6666.

Thanks again for taking the time to reach out, and I look forward to continuing the conversation.

Best,
David May, General Manager
