Overall poor service. Our waitress was fine, but she had too many tables at once. Other waiters standing around, no busboy at all. Didn't take dirty dishes away, didn't fill up water or soda glasses. Utensils not replaced. For the price there are many other options in Chicago that provide superior service and food. Not worth the money spent.

Everything was just fine. Restaurant seems to be worn out in need of serious redecorating.

We did lunch on a Tuesday. They had some lunch specials which my wife had that were reasonably priced. You can also order from the dinner menu. The food was outstanding and our server, Martini, was friendly and attentive.

We were very disappointed in the steak this time. We have been here before and thought it was excellent but this trip failed except for the sea bass which was excellent. The service was excellent and the staff very accommodating. Flavor and the quality of the steak was a disappointment

We had a wonderful experience at this location. The food was superb. Our service was very slow and we were on a time table for an evening show so we didn’t have time for the dessert we hoped to have. Our waiter informed us that we should have alerted him to our need to be finished by a certain time. That is a fair expectation and we’ll keep it in mind next time...I was going off of other dining experiences at this chain when I made our reservation and didn’t think we’d be short on time. So, FYI....let your waitstaff know if you have a time table to attend to!

Ruth's Chris is one of our favorites here in Chicago and many other locations. The service and quality of food are always outstanding. They are attentive without hovering and very good at anticipating needs. We went this time for an anniversary so they decorated the table before we were seated and brought out a complimentary special desert. We'll definitely be back.

Had a wonderful time. The family and I were in town to celebrate Fathers Day. We arrived about 20 minutes early for our reservations, but the host had no problem seating us early. The wait staff was extremely friendly and the food was excellent. I joked with my family that this was a huge sacrifice for me as I have been a vegetarian for over a year. I was not disappointed as I had the mozzarella and tomato salad and the vegetable plate. My wife and children had steaks. A enjoyable dining experience that I would highly recommend.

Michael provided excellent service; he was welcoming & friendly and made sure we had everything we needed at all times. We went to celebrate our daughter’s graduation and her acceptance into the Occupational Therapy Program and her Birthday. The mashed potatoes with garlic were the best, not to forget the Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and the wedge salad. Everything we ordered was delectable.

We were on time for our reservation (5:45). Restaurant mostly empty and we were sat right outside the restroom. Restaurant was aware this was an anniversary dinner. I don’t think there should be a table in that location. People walking to the restroom had to walk around our table.

Food was ok. We ordered oysters rockefeller (husband liked them), lobster bisque (tasted good- not great but good), lobster Mac n cheese (better and cheesier last time we ordered), cowboy ribeye (pretty good but not Ruth’s Chris good), t-bone (pretty good but not Ruth’s Chris good), asparagus (average). Wine was good. Dirty martini was good.

The dress code is not enforced AT ALL! I was disappointed in the ambiance and casual atmosphere. Not a big deal but not what we expected when choosing this restaurant for a special dinner.

Service was really good. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable.

We’ve dined in the Barrington, IL restaurant several times and we prefer the atmosphere and level of service better. We feel the food was better in Barrington too.

Once we arrived at the restaurant, we had a fabulous experience. Our waiter was attentive, but not in our face. He helped us choose a wine that everyone was happy with by bringing samples for us to try. The food was, as usual, cooked to perfection. The only complaint I have, and it’s a big one, happened before we arrived. The woman who called to confirm our reservation was so rude it was almost comical. I can only imagine that something happened to her shortly before she called me that made her extremely angry. After confirming that we were looking forward to our upcoming dinner, she asked if I understood the dress code was business casual. She then said, “Do you know what business casual is?” in such a snooty way that I was taken aback. I then asked her if they had valet parking and she replied, “Yes, but it’s $15 for the first 3 hours and you have to pay cash.” Again, in the most irritated voice she could muster. Then, to finish off our conversation, she said, “If you are going to be more than 15 minutes late, you should call us, but we can’t guarantee that we will honor your reservation and since it’s on a Friday night, we probably won’t.” If you read this you probably think that all of this information is reasonable, and it is! It was just her attitude. I have never had an experience like this with someone from Ruths Chris. Hopefully, I won’t ever again.

Daughter graduates from nursing school & after seeing West Side Story at the Opera House, we walked to Ruth’s. Luckily we had reservations, as the restaurant was quite crowded when we left. The food is usually great & today was no exception, but by the time you have 2 drinks each & an appetizer & a meal, it gets pretty pricey. Not something to do very often, but since it was a special occasion, we splurged. Don’t usually go downtown, but there just aren’t any great restaurants near where we live. I did bring home some leftovers though.

Messed up our order. By the time my steak came everyone else was done. A friend also had the same problem, as did the table next to us. Sides came out without serving utensils and just sat there. And oh, there was a hair in the brussell sprouts. I love Ruth Chris but not this one.
