The lunch menu has a NY strip w shoestring fries for $29. Great steak and value. The 9oz glass of wine though was $21. Seemed a little high. Overall though a great place to eat and spend an evening.

Server was terrible, he didn’t even tell us his name and was rushing. Food came out extremely salty and had to be sent back. The server was so rude I signaled for a manager and he switched the server for the rest of the evening. Nothing was offered off the bill or certificates weren’t given to us to return at a later time for our inconvenience. It was also extremely loud in the place, guests were yelling and shouting obscene things throughout the night, no security stopped by to try and calm the guests. I’m a long time patron of this place but I will not return. I’d rather patronize Steak 48 or Mastros.

Bad waiter can make a great steak not as enjoyable. I have been to Ruth’s Chris many time and always have a great experience. I know this was a fluke, and will be back. I will make sure I don’t have the same waiter.

Being my first visit to Ruth's Chicago location, I was hoping to be surprised. If anything, it was consistent with the other Ruth's Chris' around the world.

The wine menu was heavily laden with top end expensive wines while lacking in the lower end name recognizing brands.
The Shrimp Cocktail while "good" seemed to be light in terms of the number of shrimp (4) compared to most other restaurants serving the usual five. The Potato Leek Soup was good and the Lettuce Wedge while generous, needed additional 1000 Island Dressing. The Filet (while wanting the smaller was served the larger) looked more like a Ribeye than the traditional "Filet". Flavor was "ok".
The Blackened Scallops while not defined as Blackened in the menu and seemed to come prepared in the way the chef wanted to prepare them. Disappointing and should have been more defined as a "special".
The Shoestring Potatoes while generous were more like grated potatoes - very thin shoestrings.
Lastly, the Duo of Chocolate cake was slightly over done and more like a chocolate cake than a molten dessert cake. While good in taste, it was not what was expected.

Service by our waiter, Jordan, was very good. Attentive and ensuring that the guest doesn't need anything. Water glasses were constantly filled.

If you are looking for a steak place that is consistent from location to location, Ruth's Chris is your McDonald's of the steak world.

The chairs can use some replacement. The material was peeling off the chairs which made the initial approach to the table unpleasant. The food however was amazing! My well done steak was soo soft! I loved it.

We arrived 30minutes early so we checked in with the seating staff who both acknowledged our reservation. We informed them that until our table was ready we would grab a drink at the bar. When the scheduled time for our table arrived we inquired about the delay. Well needless to say they attempted to act like our reservation did not exist. Management questioned me as if I was untruthful about the reservation to the point I had to actually pull up my email to show the confirmation. After they figured out they in fact dropped the ball they finally walked us to our table. We were placed in a upstairs subpar seating area compared to the main floor. And the seats were extremely close in proximity to others. This resulted in us asking to be moved after we could no longer deal with the unruly couple behind us. If it was not for our waitress Alex who was great we were debating on if we should stay. Overall the rest of the service and food were great.

Very disappointing. Previously was my favorite steak place in Chicago, but no longer. Food was not even mediocre...steaks were lukewarm at best, side was barely warm. We were not even offered fresh ground pepper on our salads. No longer a special place, just another chain with lower than average service at exorbitant prices. With all the other steakhouse options in Chicago we will begin searching for a new favorite. So sad!

We celebrated three friends' birthdays at Ruth's Chris last year, and we enjoyed it so much that we went back again this year. We all agreed it was an even better experience this year. Don't miss the lobster mac 'n cheese!

I loved the whole scenery of the relaxed feel of this place. First time going and I must say everything was good. We had the tomahawk steak which was recommended by our server and my fiance. Loved it, was so juicy and tender. My server was the best. Will definitely recommend this place and I will be back to try more delicious dishes

Mostly good, have been here before. I can always expect a decent well cooked steak and a good selection of wine. I feel if anything the ambience is slightly worse than it was, especially at the bar. Just seems the dress code and behaviour feels a little less well managed than before. I’m not expecting silence but a bit of peace and quiet (in a nice buzzy atmosphere) is quite desirable. Didn’t get that. Got people shouting at other and into their phones .

This was my first visit to Ruth Christ. I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has a warm and welcoming ambiance. We were seated at a booth and the service we received from our attentive server, MICHAEL, was exceptional. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides were delicious. Ruth Chris is a fierce and formidable competitor when it comes to Chicago Steakhouses.
