My wife and I had an amazing meal on a Tuesday evening. She got the petite filet and I got the ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly. Our waiter was on top of his game from start to finish. Made great recommendations and even paid for my wife’s dessert for her birthday. Unforgettable experience!

Our waiter was great. The food was pretty much what we expected, but they forgot my lobster tail, so they rushed it. Unfortunately, it was a little raw in the middle. Our steaks were perfect, of course. It is one of the best restaurants in the area for a predictably good steak.

Katie, the hostess, was informative, kind, and pleasant. Sean, our server, was exceptional. The auxiliary/busboys make sure our table was clean and clear. The Manager made time to stop by to check on us and wish us well. Our food was amazing. We did pay a pretty penny for our Anniversary dinner date, but it was well worth it to us. We also appreciated everyone wearing masks and enforcing customers to wear masks when away from their tables.

Das hervorragende Personal (Aufmerksaamkeit, Freundlickeit) kann den mittelmäßigen Zustand des Restaurants nicht ausgleichen. In die Jahre gekommenen Ausstattung und Einrichtung trüben den Genuss.

Overall, the food was good and reasonably priced. However, if you’ve truly had good steak, Ruth’s Chris seems very homogenous and run of the mill. However, it does scratch the itch for really good American grain fed prime beef at a modest price point.

Decor and service were very good as usual. Caesar salad was tasty and just right for splitting between my wife and I. Ordered petite filet and sea bass, same as have done on several previous occasions. Both were initially served under done. After coming back from additional heating the orders were as they should have been. Filet was excellent, very tasty. Sea bass did not seem to me as fresh tasting as previously , although my wife said it was fine for her. The sides were tasty and plentiful, and we were provided with additional servings to compensate for delay of main dishes. Manager additionally provided complimentary desert - very rich and enjoyable chocolate cake.

We'll still return as this seemed to be an anomaly based on previous experience.
