A group of us decided to dine here when we were all in town. Our server was excellent and the food was delicious. Of course, we all had a steak and were happily surprised at how every single one was cooked to perfection. We ordered a variety of sides including the brussels sprouts, creamed spinach, lobster mac and cheese and... More

I've been to many Ruth Chris in the United States. The best place for steaks bar none. Served on a hot plate with butter and the steak always taste great. Their staff everywhere has always been courteous and very professional. Hands-down the best steak place I've ever ate at. I only have one suggestion, your bathrooms need to be updated.

Booked an early love day dinner at Ruth Chris. Wasn't expecting a disaster dinner, but that's what we received . Had to send BOTH of our cocktails back they were so horrible. A Margarita and a Manhattan.. Guess the bartender got the night off..It took forever to get a glass of wine and I opted for tea instead... Rib eye... More

Thank you for your candid feedback. What you describe definitely falls short of our highest brand standards and for that I am very sorry, but I am most disappointed that we failed to make your early Valentine's Day celebration the romantic dinner you were expecting. So that I may personally apologize and do what I can to make things right,... More

INCREDIBLE SERVICE. I believe our waiter's name was Tony. He made the whole dining experience top notch. Meal selection, drink pairings, desert choices, he was perfect.

Was on a business trip and had dinner at the restaurant. The steak was supherb, as usual. The service was excellent and so were the drinks. I had the set meal and included a dessert. The pricing of the food is also as expected, so long as you know what you are walking into.

I know that there are Ruth's Chris Steakhouse Restaurants all over, but I had never been to this one (and I don't believe that I have ever reviewed one).

Every time we go it always lives up to our expectations. It's hard to go away from the filet (medium) because when it comes out on the piping hot plate with butter sizzling all around it.......the mouth immediately overrides the brain in telling it to wait until it cools down a bit. The bernaise sauce is a nice addition to... More
