We were underwhelmed by the service and the rash that we felt throughout dinner. This restaurant has a reputation that doesn’t seem to match the service that we received. We spent the evening being rushed through service who I think we’re trying to get us out of there as quickly as possible.

Excellent experience from being greeted at the reception, to being led to the table, the hostess was very accommodating, we had a person with allergies on the table, the chef came out to understand the scope of the allergies and gave his personal assurance. He put our minds at ease regarding the allergens.
Food was delicious and made to perfection.
The lobster bisque was not warm enough.

Aside from the usual outstanding food and ambience we had a server who was working his very first shift at the restaurant (I cannot recall his name, Ravif I think, I didn't have my glasses on). He was amazing, he made sure the entire meal and the experience flowed smoothly and quickly. Unobtrusive yet attentive and smiling throughout. Great food, excellent staff and lovely ambience.

Our waiter Matt was great and friendly! He was attentive and checked in on how we were doing at each course. Overall, the food was delicious and well balanced. I did specify that the reservation was an anniversary, so I thought there would be a small event from the restaurant which did not happen. This would be the only area of improvement for missing the occasion.

Great evening out for my fiancés birthday. We had the pleasure of having Paul as our server. Phenomenal gentleman! Would come back again just to be served by Paul. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Amazing portion sizes. This location is tucked away from the busy hustle and bustle of other locations. Highly recommend. Also, there was a young man who was changing over the tables in our section. His sense of humour was EVERYTHING! I wish I had cash so I could’ve tipped him he made us laugh with cute little jokes! Amazing team. Thank you Ruth Chris Markham

It’s been what my daughter would call a “hot minute” since my wife and I left the house and actually went out to a restaurant to eat. So, when that time came where else would we go than Ruth’s Chris? Make up for all that lost time by having an amazing meal served with the expert service they are known for.

And this night was no different. After some lovely appies, we decided to split the tomahawk. And yes, we were definitely thinking ahead to many leftovers to stretch this gloriousness out longer than one night! The steak was cooked to perfection (Chicago rare- just like God intended it to be done), and the presentation, while not changing the taste, nonetheless made it even more magical. My wife had been talking about the creamed spinach before we even left the house, so that was a given for us to order - and it matched up to all her memories and expectations. We added some garlic mashed potatoes, because they pair so well. If something ever went horribly wrong and I found myself vegetarian, I would still come here and order those two things together. We added some grilled Brussels sprouts too…cause they’re made with bacon AND I can still hear my mother's voice telling me to eat something green - and no one believes me that 6-8 olives in a martini count…but I digress.

That was the food. Literally it makes your mouth happy. But the more worthy of praise part of the night was the service. If you decide to go to this place, make sure Chris is serving and that you are in his section. Truly, he’s a standard of professionalism that should be used for measuring all staff. In addition, he’s engaging, conversational, has an incredible memory and makes you feel like you aren’t the only person who thinks you are the most important person in the world. (And I always knew I wasn’t the only one who felt that way!) This team truly enjoys being the best at what they do, and it shows in every way. I’ll be back!

Most if not all the items out party of 4 ordered were heavily seasoned including the mashed potato side. The shrimp on the Classic Steak & Shrimp special were just too small. (51-60 sizing). Not nice to see this size shrimp as it felt and looked like Ruth's is chintzing. Plus, all you could taste on the shrimp was salt.
The Caesar salad was fresh but had too much dressing.
Service got slow and less attentive as the dining room filled up.
Not the best dining experience.
