I ordered: Blue Crab Cakes appetizer Petit (6 oz) filet and shrimp (6 large) My wife ordered the Au Gratin Potatoes for us to share. The traditional bread served as a pre-dinner appetizer was good - say grade B. I expected fantastic A+ bread at a high-end steak house. I was disappointed in the bread. Two large crab cakes arrived... More

A leisurely ordering process followed by a wonderful appetizer and finally our entre. Nothing was rushed or hurried, each service was delivered in a timely manner making... More

Crab and avacado appetizer was fabulous! Lobster bisque always a delight! Chilean sea bass was cooked perfectly! Tender flaky and wonderful! Creme Brule was delicious! Service a bit slow but all was good!

Steaks were undercooked and nothing special. You would think a high end steak house would know how to make a good steak!

Ordinarily, there wouldn't be much use in writing a review on a Ruth's Chris Steak House. Like Club Level at a Ritz-Carlton, it's consistent perfection and they've thought of everything. But on this visit, we noticed yet another attention to detail. We arrived at 7:00 PM, dressed as they taught me to dress after 5:00 PM in etiquette class many... More

Chose to go here for my birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. My husband made our reservations and the table had a lovely card signed by the staff and birthday confetti on the table that looked very festive. The server, Mark, was wonderful. Very attentive and friendly. As always the steaks were great. Done to perfection. They also gave... More

If you are celebrating something special, Ruth's Chris Steak House knows how to do it right! When making reservations, I was asked if we were celebrating anything and I replied that it was my husband's birthday. Our table was decorated, the waitress took a picture of our party and presented it to us in a card, and a special birthday... More

We reserved a booth for our wedding anniversary and mentioned to the restaurant that we are also bringing our two little children to the restaurant. The result: no booth, worst and smallest table in the restaurant, bad service, bad starters, not even pencils or paper to draw on for the children, bad kids food.. you feel that Fleming's and Michael's...

Fabulous service and great food while on holiday from the UK - love getting the chance to visit one of our favourite steak restaurants in the US. The steaks were fabulous. We had a great night.

August 29th my husband and I went here to celebrate our 40th anniversary. It was my first time. Our table was decorated with rose petals and a lovely card was signed by the staff.
