Description: The story of Ruth's Chris Steak House, the elegant, comfortable and classically American home of the sizzling steak, began in 1965 in New Orleans. Ruth Fertel had a goal of providing a better life for her family. Inspired by her love of people and delight in creating memorable moments, Ruth's lack of business experience mattered little when matched with her spirit and commitment to create a restaurant of which she could be proud. Ruth's legacy continues today. Regardless of the occasion, we guarantee the best steak house experience you have ever had. Every detail will be perfect. From the moment you arrive until your evening's end, you will feel as though you were the most honored guest in the restaurant. We look forward to treating you to a world-class experience!

We dined here over Memorial Weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the Host Station to Lordian our waiter (assisted by David), to Brian the manager on duty, we were greated with warmth and professionalism. It was our first experience at a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. The ambience is upscale without being stuffy, the employees are well trained and appear to like their jobs. We felt very welcomed. The food was delicious. We shared a calamari app to start. It was very tender and the sauce was delicious. I had the strip steak and my husband had the filet. Both were served on the sizzling plates, were cooked to perfection and were delicious. We split an order of onion rings as a side. Next time I would have the shoestring potatoes or another selection. The onion rings, although perfectly cooked, were a little bready for our taste. Dessert was a chocolate lava cake with ice cream that was plenty big to share. They also brought us a small dessert trio to celebrate our anniversary. Our tab was about what we expected. We each had a specialty cocktail, split and app, a side and a dessert and a steak apiece. Tab before tip was about 150.00. Definitely not a place we could go every week but well in keeping with a special occasion restaurant. Portions were generous, service was impeccable, and the food was delicious. We were very satisfied with our experience.

Melts in your mouth. This steak was pure enjoyment. Perfectly cooked as medium. Delicious and juicy. I wish I could eat another right now. Top notch service, attentive but not overbearing. We were 4 guys on a golf and we celebrated my birthday 3 days in advance. Nicely done when they brought out a complementary desert of chocolate truffle, a crème brulee, and a small plate of fruit. never had a bad meal at a Ruth Chris yet!

We went for a nice steak dinner and were ecstatic when the menu included Wagyu beef. It was an excellent tasting steak and a large enough portion (30 oz.) that we could share it. The Ahi tuna was an excellent choice for an appetizer. The staff and service was fantastic.

This is the first restaurant of high quality we have been in the US so far. Coming from Europe, where we are used to good service and food, we have been pleasantly surprised by the place and the service. And, of course, the t-bone and ribeye were very good.

My husband and I have been three times to this location, and we love it. We've had great servers and perfectly cooked food each time. The sweet potato casserole is amazing! On our last visit, the one year anniversary of our engagement, our server gave us dessert on the house! We dress up, but there are always people dressed in jeans, which seems crazy when going to such a nice place.
Bottom line, yes, it's expensive, but for a special occasion, it's a great place to go.
