Success! Thanks for posting your review of Ruth's Chris Steak House. You’ve done the world some good today.

Always a Good Steak!

The title of my review and my star rating don't match well. However, it's true, the steaks are good, but this particular Ruth's Chris has not been my favorite in terms of atmosphere.

Poor for Many, Good for Few

I think Ruth Chris' works well if you're going as a small group but they're not on top of things for bigger groups. I have been on a date with just another person and had excellent service and the food as always is great! I did experience a sort of slow, irritated wait person when we were a party of six. This time the food came out a bit slow and one person waited for an unusually long wait while the rest of us jus... view more

Great place to eat

My husband and I stumbled upon this place about 15 years ago and we come back every year for birthdays and anniversaries. The steaks (filet mignon or rib eye) are to die for. The sides and salads are all delicious. You have got to try the crème brule for desert (heaven). The service is great and they always treat you like you are special. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable.

I discovered steak thanks to Ruth's Chris!

Although I was never really a ""steak"" person, DH and I decided to try Ruth's Chris because he loves steak and what better way to try to convert me than by taking me to a restaurant known for their excellent steaks? Thank you, Ruth's Chris, your Petite Filet made me appreciate red meat like I never have before! :) We've been eating at Ruth's Chris several times a year since then and our favorite side dish is the ... view more

Bad attitude, crowded, noisy, and a waste of time.

We had 7pm reservations to celebrate an anniversary. The host had an attitude and told us we would have to wait 15 minutes. After 35 minutes, we asked about our table to a different host who told us we had been seated already. I told him that wa impossible since I was standing in front of him. He apologized and said we would have the next table available. We left and went to Harris' Steakhouse one block down (mu... view more

I wanted to go some place special for my birthday so I picked Ruth Chris. I had a memorable meal here about 8 years ago. This time it was memorable for the wrong reasons. First of all..when did the menu go from ""expensive"" to ""house payment"". Seriously. If you're ordering ala carte, be prepared to splurge. I do need to say our waitress was absolutely amazing but here is the problem..we both had to send our steaks... view more

Best Steak and Service

I have been here a few times but most recently I took my wife for our wedding anniversary. They took VERY good care of us. I had no problems with the reservation and when we arrived they had a personalized greeting card. The food was amazing as always and the service is exceptional. I have no problem paying top dollar for excellent service and great food.

mmmm butter

i've been to all the steakhouses in the city and ruth chris is still by far the best. i don't care if it's a chain, the food is good and so is the service. anything drenched in butter flashed broiled and a glass wine to wash it down with is a.o.k.

Not Bad, But Not Worth the Price

The food wasn't bad, but definitely not worth the price! My steak was burnt on the sides, which was not very appetizing, and the butter on top just made everything greasy without adding any flavor.\r I was also tricked with the water--they asked me if I wanted Pellegrino, and at the end of the night I realized I was charged $9!!!\r I ordered a rib eye that cost about $40. My husband ordered the bone-in rib eye. ... view more

Spend your $ somewhere else

I've been to House of Prime Rib, Morton's, Watergate, and now finally Ruth's Chris. The experience was disappointing. The atmosphere was dead and the food did not live up to par. Everything is ala carte and expensive. Expensive is fine if the quality reflects so, but it sure didn't taste like a $45 steak. My medium rare steak tasted no better than the one I ate at the Outback. It was just dry and hard to swallo... view more
