Ruth Christ Las Vegas food poisoning

I would be interested in how Ruth Christ restaurant owners have responded to problems with food poisoning. My wife and I ate at the Ruth Christ restaurant in Las Vegas in January of 2011 and both got very sick and cut short our stay as a result. Despite repeated calls to the restaurant and to the Ruth Chris corporation's offices in Florida, we never received anything from the restaurant other than a letter stating that the owner's insurance agent would be in touch. I have never received such incredibly callous treatment from any restaurant in my life. The Ruth Christ company refuses to get involved and they have stated that they have no control over an independent operator which is of course a convenient lie.

I guess it's not religious anymore if they got food poisoning.

If you have doctor's notes or anything to confirm the food poisoning I would also write to the Nevada Attorney General and Department of Consumer Affairs with your complaint. I bet you get action after they get involved.

Good luck.

I bet someone in that house uttered some "Oh God's" and "Oh Christ's"

Could have been an exorcism, expelling the old, evil food. And replacing it with the good new food.

Are you SURE it wasn't Ruth Christ's Ellis Island Casino and Brewery ?

Did you have the tube steak while in Vagas?

" I have never received such incredibly callous treatment from any restaurant in my life."

How often do you write to restaurants complaining of food poisoning? What's your point of comparison here?

"both got very sick and cut short our stay as a result. "

I can't imagine leaving a hotel room with a bathroom within 10 feet and driving or flying home with food poisoning symptoms. Yech.

I would think there's not much any restaurant could do about someone claiming they got food poisoning. I'm not sure if they or you could be sure it came from them when you factor in all the different places you had eaten at during your stay. I am sorry you became ill though, that's never fun especially on vacation.
