“great food but very expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

We ate there a few weeks ago this is a really nice restaurant, very upscale, i would recommend to dress in business attire no jeans or shorts because it is a very high class restaurant the food was good, the waiters are nice the food was piping hot the steak was even still sizzling when they brought it to us which was good. the only thing is they are very expensive and their steaks and chicken do not come with sides they are separate, so it can be very expensive for me and my spouse it was 160.00 which is very expensive for two people but overall it was good but due to the cost we can only go there occasionally.

“Very enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We have gone for happy hour and the menu is very good. It is also a nice atmosphere for an evening in the main restaurant area, the steaks were superb, the service is what you would expect. We also loved the view

“very nice restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

We went for a work related party. The food is excellent and the service is excellent as well. This is a high end restaurant with most dinners starting around 45.00 and up. I would suggest to dress a stepup from casual.Ruth Chris is located close to the River and also Neyland Stadium. Very nice

“Service was disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014 via mobile

We had been looking to going to Ruth's Chris for some time. We finally decided to treat ourselves one evening. The food was fantastic, easily the best meal in the area. HOWEVER, the service was not on par with the food quality and price. We had a server and two "assistant servers" and another two additional servers "serving" our table.
Our main server was great, very nice, knowledgable, personable, and attentive to all needs. However she had quite a few tables she was responsible for and in the mean time the "assisting servers" could not care less so simple things like drink refills, bread, or simple questions were not addressed. Most irritating was the lady walking around with a pitcher of water while even our water glasses were empty (I tried to get her attention). I had to ask multiple times for basic things. We routinely have superior service from restaurants half the price & have never seen such lack of service from a restaurant of this caliber. Hopefully this was a fluke because the food was terrific & we will go back ONLY because of the food. Otherwise the night would have been very disappointing.

“Great food”

Very consistent food, price is expensive, but you get what you pay for. Service was fantastic, and so is the view - ask for a table outside if the weather is nice
