                          This was our first time here not sure what to expect, but our server made things easy and explained everything about the menu and took his time and made sure we had what we needed or ask for. We never felt rushed, we enjoyed our cocktails then our dinner arrived, and I have to say it was one of the best meals we had ever had. Our server stopped by to make sure we didn't need anything, and our water always stayed full. We will definitely be back, and I will make sure to spread the word that Ruth Chris is well worth a visit.

                          As usual the food was incredible. As well as the waiter. We requested to sit behind the hostess stand for several reasons. 1. Historically have the best, most experienced waiters. 2. The tables are smaller and more intimate with less noise. 3. The manager checks on the table regularly to ensure everything is going well. Sitting in other sections - not so good. I do have one complaint that I assume they have no control over. Biden's Inflation. The steaks keep going up. $52 for an 8 oz filet? WOW. I may be wrong but about 1.5-2 years ago, the same steak was $32. This restaurant, although excellent, and our "go-to" will now be reserved for "special, special occasions"....

                          Mother’s Day dinner was nice. The food was hot and was delivered timely. I didn’t give 5’s across the board because the lobster Mac was just okay compared to others, but overall it was a great experience and all of your staff was friendly and extremely helpful.

                          Celebrated a birthday and because I made a reservation and mentioned that, the table had light metal confetti on it. Sweet touch. Food was amazing, server and atmosphere as well. Got a free birthday cheesecake with a decorated dish. Left full AND with leftovers in a to go bag.

                          A wonderful dining experience- the staff & management were very helpful regarding our dining needs relative to food allergies. We are most appreciative of their diligence regarding these issues. A very enjoyable dinner - steaks were excellent— as normal. We have enjoyed Ruth’s Chris across the nation for 30+ years!

                          Filet mignon was over-seasoned with pepper and salt. Diners should be able to add their own (one can't remove it when served this way). Crab cakes and salads (house and chopped) are just OK. The grilled asparagus was excellent! The waiter forgot the house salad when serving our meals! The ambiance was superb. Value for nearly $100/plate - meh. My mother loves Ruth's Chris, and that's why we keep coming back. Last year's food was much better and worthy of an excellent recommendation. New chef, maybe? The bottom line: the quality and value at this restaurant are inconsistent and, based on this year's experience, one can do better elsewhere.

                          We usually say that we can cook better at home and in most instances we can, but this was the exception. The food was fantastic. The steak was cooked perfectly! All of the sides were very good ( caesar salad, creamed spinach, mashed potatoes). Service was also very good. All of our needs were answered before we asked but never overbearing. The waiter just kept a good eye on our table as well as the other team members. It was quiet so we could hear each other, somewhat intimate feeling. We will definitely be back!

                          Not the service I have always received from my regular server Raj. Food was under cooked, sides not real hot. Bernaise was different. Sale was very different lots of cabbage instead of lettuce. It was marginal for 325.00

                          The Food was amazing but the hostess was rude and the waiter checked on us maybe once. I’ve been to Ruth Chris va beach location a few times before and always raved about their customer service, so for me to experience that last night really burns my grits.

                          Well we waited a very long time for bread I had to actually asked Stacie for it this was a big turn off when we think of Ruth Chris we think fine dining experience with superior service we’ll the great I g was fine the hostess was less than enthusiastic but my biggest problem with this restaurant was the clientele! You have a dress code but it’s not enforced at all instead of turning people away they go to the bar area that’s how it usually works but at this visit we saw in the dinning room woman’s jogging suit with open midriff and accompanied by her male with a jogging suite with large Jordan logo and sneakers they sat near the fire place booths then a whole party of 8 dress in street gear like the just left a child little league game all in jeans hoodies two baseball caps just a hot mess and they were put in the middle of the dining area it just really belittled our experience we dressed up went the salon and wanted to have a fancy night and test when we looked around I could have saved over $140 and just went to longhorn just really really disappointed I know all money is good but to pretend you are some you are not and this is NOT fine dining I will not dwell on our servers that did ok we saw Bryce once when we sat down he needs to work on that but Stacie didn’t have proper back up to check on her tables so that made it that she barely came by I didn’t even get a refill on my unsweetened tea This is probably not the right location for us it was just a disgrace!

                          This is a good restaurant. Service, food, ambiance etc. BUT IT IS VERY VERY EXPENSIVE!!! Unbelievably so for VA Beach. New York City steakhouse prices easily. Moreover without any notice 18% service is automatically added to all checks - after and on top of the 16% City and State sales tax. This is unacceptable. And if this restaurant want to charge such upscale prices it ought to monitor guests' dress. It ain't an oceanfront beer joint. Ball caps, tee shirts, torn jeans, flip flops and, in general, sloppy attire (all on display last night) ought to be disallowed.

                          Bad news and good news, the bad news, Ruth’s is the ONLY remaining fine dining establishment in the failing Town Center area of Va Beach. The good news is that’s all we need. It’s a can’t miss dining experience. Starting at the bar where the young lady greeted us as friends, although it had been a month since the last visit. Of course, the cocktails are original and crafted to your taste. Try the “Ruth’s Manhattan” (w/ southern comfort). BUT, you’re there for the steak and you won’t be disappointed. Very pricey, but you will get a seasoned and grilled to perfection steak. However, this being Ash Wednesday, my wife wanted seafood and you may be surprised to know that they have options there too. The rare tuna and shrimp appetizer were great starters and my wife modified a Caesar Salad with Salmon, of course hooked perfectly. The service was good, although the one who brought our meal, not our waiter, forgot to follow-up on a couple of detailed requests. Of course, it’s the most expensive meal in town and the wine list, although thorough, is outrageously expensive. Aside from the minuses, you get what you pay for at Ruth’s Chris. It’s a great night out and the food is fabulous.
