    The restaurant is poorly run, from host to service. Amount and timing of service/attention not nearly commensurately to a fine steakhouse which charges premium prices. I can’t believe how few times anyone visited our table (approx 30 min between time anyone visited our table). When meal was finally served, with plates initially missing, it took another 30-40 minutes before table cleared and check was given. Additional item was also added on check that was not ordered. We desired to leave so I didn’t dispute the bill and paid it anyway. That’s on me I guess (quite literally). I hope the management and staff find a way to improve honestly, considering the name/reputation of Ruth’s Chris and the prime location in Short Hills. Unfortunately, I will not be returning, especially with The Capital Grille not being too far from this restaurant.

    Even though we had reservations, our table was not ready at the reserved time. They crammed 5 adults into a 3 person booth. We asked to be moved to an appropriate table and were told it would be a long wait. Meanwhile tables meant for 5 or more had 4 people seated at them. Service was slow and inattentive. For example we ordered the seafood tower and asked for cocktail sauce. Server disappeared for 15 minutes and had to ask again. Main course was rushed onto table while we were still eating appetizers. Drinks were slow to be refilled. Food was ok at best. Not up to other Ruth’s Chris locations. Very dissatisfied with the experience, especially for the price tag. Will not return to this location again.

    We’ve always booked reservations for Ruth’s Chris at its Parsippany location for birthday dinners so we thought we’d try the Short Hills location due to closer proximity. Overall experience was pretty good. The server named Khalil was amazing & attentive with clearing our tables, refilling drinks & engaging with customers. I would definitely give him kudos. Our actually server Alejandro was decent as well but he messed up our entree orders and wasn’t as quick to check up on our table but he did a good job nonetheless.

    Went for daughters birthday. Chipped glassware. Tiny dinner plates. Never brought her birthday cake and took forever to get the check. After 15 minutes I had to go look for waitress or anyone! Next time I'll go to Longhorns and save $200.

    My steak was over cooked but I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want my wife wait or eat alone while waiting for mine to be prepared again. Service was good and attentive but yet again we weren’t recognized as a return guest. I always book through Open Table so if you look in there when my reservation comes up you would see that we’ve eaten at your location (SH) maybe 3 times and in Parsippany close to 20 times. It goes a LONG way to recognize return customers and a real lost opportunity when you don’t. Just my opinion as I work in the service industry as well. Recognizing return guests builds loyalty, it’s a fact. Thanks

    We walked in with a reservation, but waited 20+ minutes, with many others, to be seated. Once we were escorted out of the crowded entry area, the restaurant was quiet and uncrowded, with many empty tables. The service was efficient and professional, but we were given a check right after our dessert arrived, which i found to be extremely rude and unnecessary. I will not be returning.

    Two 11 oz filets were ordered, one looked 1/2 thickness of other. Manager gave "credit" off for the smaller steak. The ribeyes were fattier than usual. Otherwise fine, however for a $600 bill for 4 people, definitively not worth the experience

Our mashed potatoes came out very delayed and the manager and waitress took care of it with no issues! Not to mention the food was great. This is the 4th RCSH I’ve been to and it is by far the best.

    We were served by Sylwia who was very knowledgeable of the menu and able to answer all of our questions my wife has the skirt steak which was seared to perfection. I had the salmon which was underwhelming but got the job done . I was impressed with their mojitos. We ordered about 5 and we’ll definitely be back!
