    We used to come here a few times a year prior to the pandemic, but this was our first time in a couple years. Unfortunately, it isn't what it used to be. We both ordered the simple 'Ruth's Classic' - a salad, main course w/ a side, and dessert. Service was extremely slow. We were there almost 2.5 hours and even got our dessert to go. The steaks were cooked exactly as expected, but we both felt the quality of the beef has declined significantly. One of our sides was barely warm. Overall, we didn't feel like it was worth the expense at all.

    Nothing terribly wrong, but badly overpriced. Food is good, but not spectacular. And the cost category on OpenTable is off. Most entrees are over $50, and since side dishes are sold separately, it is fair to say you’re looking at least $75 per person before appetizers and drinks.

    A very positive experience all around. We were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant provided a card, some decorations and a candle in the dessert. Although our steaks were undercooked, waiters and management were very apologetic and gracious in providing us with some perks along with our steaks that had been cooked a little longer. We've eaten here before and will do so again. PS The raspberry cosmopolitan was a beautiful pink and delicious!

    Usually Ruth’s Chris is a “go to” but this was a very off night: we wanted to order large filets but somehow they were out of them at 7pm. They offered 2 small filets instead, but honestly they were tiny, half-inch thick cuts of meat I’d expect at a cut rate grocery store. They didn’t have any fresh spinach, they were out of the wine we wanted. Overall, at $700 for 3 people, I’d never go back. We expect at premium prices to have a premium experience, this was Outback Steakhouse at 5X the price. At one point they asked me to go back to the bar and pay our bar tab separately that we had asked to just move to the table. I hope they were happy making me get up and walk over to pay that separate tab, as it’s the last one I’ll ever pay at Ruth’s Chris.

    Big problems at Ruth’s. Main course took an hour. They had a banquet going on and they were not capable of doing that and us. The dinner when it came was good. The manager comped our dinner due to the problems

    Food came out late and was room temperature. Several tables around us were complaining to the manager so we didn’t feel we needed to add to the complaints, but our food took a long time to be served and came out slightly warm not hot. We ate it, but we were not pleased. Probably won’t go back for awhile. Very disappointing!

    Our experience was amazing, our server David and our busser were great and very personable. The manager on duty was not terribly charismatic and we could hear him giving the EXACT same rehearsed speech to every table. Our food was above and beyond our expectations and I really appreciate David wrapping our desserts to go. The noise level was perfect for peaceful conversation. Thank you Ruth's Chris for helping my wife and I celebrate our wedding anniversary.

    Great service. Great cocktails. Very good food. Menu is paired back from what it once was, no whole lobster, veal chop, pork chop, prime rib. Also don’t refer to vegetarian menu on line, doesn’t exist. Tuna app with mustard sauce is still good although the presentation that was once artful is now quite sloppy. Caesar salad good. NY Strip perfectly prepared, juicy and tender. SEa Bass may be the best I’ve ever had. One odd note, we ordered app to share, entrees and sides. Entrees came on tiny plates with no room for cutting. No side plates were offered for side dishes. We asked three times for extra plates, received them small ones but wondered why we could not have the option of enjoying some potato with the steak ? Why all the tiny plates???? Do they expect people to share a side without their own plate? Odd. Like all restaurants not, it’s less than it once was, but still one of the best steak houses around. Far prefer to Capital Grill.
