“Overpriced, greasy”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

A lot of people love Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, but I found the steak swimming in butter to be too rich, and the food overpriced.

“Simply the best steak you can eat.”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Had occasion to try Ruth Chris 's again after not having been in several years. The menu has not changed much in that they still have that awful cream spinach. But we had steak and it was simply the best I had. Cooked to perfection and served on a hot plate which kept it warm the whole time. It almost melt in my mouth. I have had just as good steaks but not better. Their house salad and dressing was also good. The bread was Ok but maybe a touch dry. The chocolate cake was definitely chocolate. With coffee is was so rich and filling. Half was enough. I also liked the glass selection of wines. Excellent! Service was very good as I would expect. So although expensive they still offer a great experience. I just wish they would get rid of that cream spinach dish!

“Service - something they haven't forgotten”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Valentine's evening went extraordinarily well. The steaks were done beautifully, the sides were generous and the wine list was super. The ambiance on the 2nd level was cozy and dimly lit (which, for Valentine's Day, why not?) Still - I could see what I was eating !
But the best thing about the evening was the service. Every time the waiter replied, it was "Yes Sir." Not commanding, not condescending but "professionally polite" to coin a phrase. I was amazed. Not in your face, not over your shoulder while you're eating, just "there" when he was needed. I wish I could remember his name but cannot. Ruth Chris should give this person a raise! If RC is reviewing these, he was a tall black gentleman who served on the 2nd floor. Good going !!

Reviewed 11 March 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Went here for the restaurant week menu. This is usually a top notch place, but this was a BIG disappointment. The salad offered tasted and looked like it had sat in a mixing bowl in the kitchen for several hours. My steak (medium-rare) was somewhat undercooked, but by wife's (medium) was overcooked. We were seated in a room usually used for private large groups and had to experience the loud rudeness of another table of 12 who were not pleasant to the staff when they showed with several more people. A VERY disappointing experience and not up to their usual standards.

“Valentine's Day Romantic Dinner”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

This was our second time celebrating Valentine's Day at this restaurant. It was awesome! The ambience was nice,and the server was very attentive.The food was delicious,especially my sauteed mushrooms,and I must say that it was quite impressive for them to give each lady a beautiful rose,and a small box of chocalates to take home.
