Porterhouse for 2 was very fatty. I asked the waiter for a moderately priced glass of wine and he brought me a glass of Pinot noir and charged me $25 for it. This was my least favorite Ruth’s Chris meal ever

Not the best Ruth's Chris experience and I am a regular patron of Ruth's Chris. Was disappointed in the quality of food this time. Also, this particular location feels crowded.

The service was nice however the food wasn't the best. My steak was over cooked when I asked for medium well and my boyfriend's steak was rare when he also asked for medium well. The spinach didn't have any taste and the lobster mac & cheese tasted as if the pasta was cooked throughly. The best thing was the stuff mushrooms.

Food was served room temperature. Sent food back only to come back dry and hard and still room temp. Took an order to go to save time and got to my room only to find out it was not cooked all the way through.

I love Ruth's Chris and love coming here. I've never had a bad food experience and tonight was no exception, but I was very surprised at the slow service tonight. Chalk it up to an off night. Filet is my recommendation as it's always top notch

Having been to just about every known steakhouse in the city, Ruth Chris ranks dead last. I should have known something was off when the hostess called me a few hours prior to my reservation to remind me that the restaurant has a dress code (rightfully so) and as she proceeded to list articles of clothing that were deemed appropriate. I don't know about you, but if I'm planning to spend 3-4 hundred dollars on dinner and drinks for two I plan on dressing the part. The second red flag was a sign posted next to the hostess podium that reiterated the strict dress code policy. As we were seated next to the bar I couldn't help but hear a server tell the bartender (very loudly) how he doesn't stress about money since he made $170 in tips yesterday (super unprofessional). Looking directly at the front door I couldn't help but notice how many potential patrons were turned away due to the dress code.... In the hour and a half my wife and I were there, two individuals were asked to remove their hats and one had to pick up their pants since they were showing his underwear..... Once the food was served (the steak was meh at best) the server never returned to ask how the food turned out, just asked if we wanted dessert. .... All in all, there are tons of better options in this city. Save yourself the time and annoyance and go to RPM Steak, Prime and Provisions, Chicago Cut, etc...

I am very specific when I make my reservations with this restaurant as they have tables that to me are bad. By the bathroom, by the steps going to the second level and the table outside of where the waiters bring the food out. Food and service were very good.

Just lackluster compared to our previous 7 or 8 trips. We will likely be taking our anniversary dinners elsewhere moving forward.
