Ruth's Chris is supposed to be fine dining. No excuses....fine dining.... which means they have to be firing on all cylinders. My wife and I live in the neighborhood and used to visit occasionally and even crave the food. I'm sure the food is still delicious but we left before being served. We sat at the bar for a good...

My wife, my daughter visiting from out of state, and I headed over to my favorite steak house for a rare dinner together. Seated in a side room with a fireplace with only 5 tables, the setting was perfect for conversation. 3 shrimp cocktails -Perfect! We ordered 3 Filet Oscars-all cooked medium. 3 Filet Oscars delivered cooked Rare! Medium Rare!... More

This was our first time at Ruth's we decided to try it especially since it was restaurant week, great prices! Upon arrival we liked the club like atmosphere and were seated promptly. We like another reviewer and all the guest seated around us had to request the restaurant week menu, it made me feel a little inadequate and uncomfortable. We... More

Ruth's Chris has been my default for years, but I was really sad after this trip, especially since I was so looking forward to it. I was celebrating my birthday, they told me I would get something. I did! A tough steak!! I've bragged on their steaks, that you don't need a steak knife, a fork will do. Wrong tonight.... More

Eloy at the bar was great, we ended up staying at the bar for dinner with him instead of making our reservations in the main dining room. 22oz Cowboy ribeye was so delicious and so was the ahi tuna.

This Ruth Chris lives up to the chain's reputation of good food and a club like atmosphere. They usually have availability so I am able to decide last minute.

My husband and I rarely eat out. That being said, we do look forward to our special dinners being here. We are known by name even though we don't go that often, we enjoy eating in the bar area of its just the two of us, but have also enjoyed the restaurant proper for a larger group. On the rare...

Kind of Gimmicky with the Valet Parking in the ever so small parking places and getting to pick your steak knives with the "special dishes." My special dish was not cooked medium, it was 3/4 well done. The manager said it would be more medium toward the bone. He did offer to make another. I just didn't want to wait... More

Ribeye was tough and definitely not medium rare. Definitely medium-sad, you expect perfection. The creamed spinach was cool not warm or bubbly. Will most likely not visit again.

Description
Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded May 1965 in New Orleans by Ruth Fertel. Our specialty is aged corn-fed USDA prime beef, broiled in a trademark 1800 degree oven and served on a plate heated to 500 degrees to ensure the steak is sizzling hot. We also offer fresh seafood including live Maine lobster, lobster tail & Atlantic salmon. Private dining rooms available for groups of 10-100.
