We’ve been celebrating at Ruth Chris for over 12 years for our anniversary and for Valentine’s Day as a tradition or whenever my husband may return from a deployment. We were pretty disappointed that we were seated 30 minutes after our reservation time. My husband always orders the lamb as he has allergies to other meat, we were told they have been out but it is listed on the online menu and in house menu. Otherwise, it was great per usual. Thank you

Service felt like we were at Friday’s. We only had 1 refill, no offers on refilling water glasses. The porterhouse was very fatty, and lacked flavor. We went here in the hopes of finding a closer steakhouse, but it appears we will need to travel the distance for quality service and food.

The biggest issue with our visit was the lack of speedy service. We placed our order for drinks and food within the first 15 minutes of begin there. Our appetizers came out 20 minutes later, but we still had not gotten our drink order. The main course came out another 20 minutes after that and we still had not gotten our drinks. The staff brought the dinners out, but left them on a tray near our table. What came out sizzling got cold sitting for 5 minutes waiting for the waitress to return and place them on our table. When she returned to the table, she finally had our drinks. After eating, she then asked if we wanted dessert which was already included in the order we made. So we end up waiting another 20 minutes for dessert. The entire dinner took 2.5 hours and could have been done an hour sooner if the service had been decent. The staff was very friendly and professional, just not very attentive or speedy. I expected more from a dinner that was over $100 a person.

Reserved a table, was re-located to the bar, waiter came to take drink order and bring the bill, no other communication from any staff, had to request the bill several times before we actually received it. This place will let anyone eat and dine here. We were seating next to a guy wearing shorts, t-shirt and flip flops with no socks. If I want trashy ambiance I will eat at McDonald’s. 3rd and last time at this location.

Service here is slow. Our waiter took a very long time to get us drinks and would have ordered more had he been more attentive. It seems to have been luck of the draw because the couple beside us had a different waiter and they were frequently being looked after.

This is not the first time we've been disappointed with the slow service when not sitting at the bar.

Perfection. My girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed her birthday dinner. From being the only people out on the patio, to the rose petals, to the excellent food and the superb service provided first by Heather and then our incredible server, Ashley, it was just a wonderful evening and we couldn't have been happier for the experience. We will definitely be back real soon. Thank you Ruth Chris!

This Ruth Chris always has a wonderful and predictable experience. The wait staff, host stand , valet attendants, bartenders and quality of food is always commendable. On this night for some reason a female manager (I assume) came and asked my group if we had a reservation or not???? I find this odd and off putting because it was after we’d already had appetizers which makes the timing a bit strange. Did she think we just came in and sat a large party by ourselves ? Further, she seemed not to ask that of anyone e else as I watched her interact with others . Clearly I have my own assumptions but it shouldn’t come to that . She should have introduced herself and told us why she was asking. Actually, she should have gone to the host stand to check the seating chart and she would’ve seen my name and the fact that I had a reservation which would have eliminated the conversation and making a guest feel like they were unwelcome. Cheers !

Wow. Definitely not the experience we were expecting. Our waitress Paula was the least attentive I’ve ever had. She spent all of her time talking with another table and not completing her duties. Dishes sat on the table, took forever to get anything ordered. From start to finish was a bad meal with the finish being her seemingly leaving off the bananas foster from the dessert selections because she didn’t want to make it. Not the way I would have wanted a family moving away meal to go.

My husband and I had such a wonderful Friday date night here.
Our waiter was Barry. He was knowledgeable with the entire menu. Our bar beverages were stellar.
We started with the Lobster tail and ended with bone in med. rare Ribeye . We were doing the delicious dance💃.
Our experience was great from start to finish.

Overall a great experience, we celebrated a birthday. Appetizers came out fast, and were very tasty - stuffed mushrooms and scallops. We added shrimp to our steaks which was so yummy, and the lobster mac and cheese and honey bacon brussels sprouts were amazing. We ended up doing the tableside bananas foster for dessert, so classic! All in all a great experience, and our server Mark was very nice. The only opportunity for improvement was that my steak was a little over cooked to my personal liking, but it wasn't a big deal, still a very good meal!

The waitress was great. The supplementary waitstaff were not. The lobster bisque was less than satisfactory in temperature and taste based off part experiences. We had three appetizers, BBQ shrimp, calamari, and crab stuffed mushrooms. They were all less than satisfactory in temperature and taste. The steaks as usual were great but didn’t exactly match the temperature and color requests and I expect that from a top tier steakhouse.

Sad to report that our service was really quite poor. Our waiter was working hard but could not keep up and no one else on the management or service team stepped in to help. We sat for 30+ minutes between courses with absolutely no attention. We understand the challenges of these times but were disappointed in the overall Ruth’s Chris experience.
