Ruth's Chris Steak House - Ann Arbor Ratings and Reviews
Very disappointing trip this time.....we have been here several times and have always had a good experience. We went tonight for Ann Arbor Restaurant Week and received horrible service while sitting at the bar. Staff were very attentive at first, however, the follow through was disappointing at best. One server asked us if we wanted bread before our food arrived, the bread never came. We asked a second server for bread.......the bread never came. After finishing our entree's and drinks we waited 10 minutes before anyone asked if we would like another drink. Remember, we are sitting the bar!!! Lastly, the meal came with dessert but it was never served to us even though we ordered it when we initially placed our order. Not sure if the service declines with Restaurant Week prices, however, it appears it does at Ruth's Chris. Definitely off our list of go-to places for the near future.
The food was exceptional. The cheesecake was especially delicious. The waiter was very educated about the menu and friendly.
We came for Restaurant Week because we felt it was an excellent value. Normally, Ruth Chris's would be a little out of our price range. Every item we received (salad, steak, crab cakes, mashed potatoes and desert) was excellent. We will be looking forward to come back at this summer's Restaurant Week.
Everything was great...the bartenders were either over worked or didn't care. The bar was dirty towels dirty dishes and you could tell the employees just disnt want to pick it up...maybe so no one would sit down. I had to go to the bar to get my drinks. Acted like they didn't want to make them. Although dinner service was phneomal.
We had a great date night during restaurant week. Wine pairings very were good. Staff was very attentive.
The food was excellent! Service as well. But the food service person didn’t tell me my steak plate was smoking hot so I burned my fingers when I lifted the plate to give it back because I asked for no butter on my steak.
Waited 30 minutes to have our order taken, got negative reaction to complaining, took our business elsewhere. Restaurant was not full. Inexplicable at these prices.
Our server was awesome, very attentive without being intrusive. We ordered a bottle of wine, he brought out other wines for comparison that were not more expensive. Steaks were cooked to perfection, the tuna app was delicious. It's is on the pricier side, but a nice splurge for special occasions.
The food was excellent, but the service - from the surly valet to our error-prone waitress - was not great and certainly unexpected and disappointing given the price of our meal.
It was outstanding are sever Vanessa was outstanding made the evening
My son’s birthday!!!
Great experience all the way around from the time we entered the restaurant until we left.
2. Birthdays! Had a wonderful time. Great food and service!
Lived up to reputation for high end steak house experience, which we enjoy from time to time - polished and attentive staff, excellent quality, nice ambience. A nice addition to the Ann Arbor dining scene
My wife had an excellent experience at Ruth Chris for her Birthday.
Ruth’s Chris never disappoints. Food and service was excellent
Fantastic food. Andrew was an outstanding waiter and Buzz is an excellent manager.
A very nice way to spend Christmas Eve. Typical of a Ruth’s Chris experience everything was as expected although I must admit the Lamb Chops were not quite as exceptional as usually experienced.
First time visiting Ruth Chris in Ann Arbor, as usual they live up to their incredible reputation!! Dinner was fabulous! The wine selections superb! We will certainly visit them again!
From start to finish, as always, Ruth's Chris was perfect for our night out. Tonight was a girl's night as we are all home for Christmas. The valet was attentive, the hostesses were kind and funny, our busboy Austin had a great sense of humor and kindness, and our waitress, Vanessa, was thoughtful, funny, and helpful. We had an amazing dining experience and will always be back again! Thanks to the team for an impeccable fine-dining experience.
Poor service, she was not attentive. Steak was good, but was on par with a $30 steak. I overpaid at $59 for what I received.
Service was poor and slow. We had to ask about our food several times and came out at various times. The kitchen and servers were not in sync at all. Two nights earlier a friend waited 45 minutes for the sommelier.
A wonderful meal and great way to celebrate Christmas with family!
Service was great. Wifes steak was tough. Creamed spinach was thick like a dip, not creamy. $250 for 3 people, and was definately not worth it. Would not recommend.
Dinner was fantastic. Service perfect.
the meats are amazing and seasoned just enough so you can still taste the meat. The scalloped potatoes are wonderful, but full of crunchy onions. Would rather have had the onions cooked all the way through or none at all. the cheeses were plenty and the onions were not needed. the pricing was a little high, but very much worth it. My daughter's graduation dinner was wonderful and very enjoyable for a special outing.
Celebrated a birthday here with 8 total in our party. Service is superb! They really know how to take care of us! Food is always exceptional!
Excellent meal and great service. Caleb made some great suggestions on the steak and the drinks. Have already recommended the restaurant to others.
Ruth's Chris is my wife and I's favorite restaurant. We typically go to the Troy location but we learned about the Ann Arbor location and tried it out. Out of all the high end steak houses, we've found Ruth's Chris to be the best for an entire meal from appetizers to their steaks. This location did not disappoint. We will be back.
Superb filet, Zingermans bread. Decor nicer than in Troy.
Great experience. Andrew and Amanda took great care of us; with assistance by Alex. They were on their A game! Amanda was not our server but she diligently researched a sauce my peer had previously until she got it right! Kudos to her to make a nice tip on a table she was not scheduled to serve. Andrew followed up on a request for a cowboy lover who couldn't eat beef tonight and had the kitchen tailor a special meal.
In addition the the As, Carston was also very accommodating. Thank you! I also can't send enough appreciation to Jessica! She's the best bartender in A2! She knows what she did and going the extra mile is a natural ability. Not everyone does customer service the right way...thanks everyone!
Outstanding! Food was fantastic and service was superb. Best steak house in Ann Arbor.
Been to many RC's and was struck how basic the interior was in Ann Arbor, pretty stark. Their steak is good, tasty, prepared as ordered. Restaurant has a large bar and was full on this Saturday night after UM/OSU football. Service was steady, in/out in 90 minutes. Everything is ala carte so look for your bill to add up, but sides are of good size. Would I repeat? Maybe
The best steak I have ever had.
Chopped salad exceprional.
Awesome service too.
Easily one of the best, if not the very best, steakhouses in Ann Arbor. Chop House is good but service at Ruth's is superior.
Love the food, staff and Buzz, the manager is wonderful!
Was not a memorable experience and I will not return. Prefer other Steak House restaurants in the area.
We have dined at this restaurant many times in the past. The wait staff has always been friendly and attentive, the food quality has always been exceptional, and our overall experience has always been very good. Additionally, The on-duty manager always stopped by to say hello and to see how the evening was progressing. Unfortunately, this visit was an exception to the level of service and quality we’ve come to expect from our past experiences.
Food quality— Overall the food quality was good. There was one issue with the crabcakes which tasted rather fishy and had to be sent back. Tuna steak and the filet mignon were outstanding!
Service—The wait staff was friendly and polite. However, Our server rarely returned the table. She was slow to bring cocktails, slow on refills, and did not serve our side dish. Our Server, desert, and coffee arrived at our table 25 minutes after we placed our desert order. The ice cream had melted significantly and the double espresso was like warm. We would’ve sent desert and coffee back to kitchen; but, our server did not return to the table for over 20 minutes.
On Duty Manager—When we first arrived, the manager was speaking with a couple at a nearby table. We were the only other table seated in the dining area at that time. The manager hurriedly passed by the dining area many times throughout the evening; but, never once stopped to check on any of the other patrons. This is out of the norm for this Ruth’s Chris as past managers have always made an effort to stop at every table to engage patrons.
Resolution for dining issues— The server did remove the crab cakes and absent side dish from the check.
I do not plan to return to Ruth’s Chris any time soon based upon last evening’s experience.
Overall excellent. Service was good but a bit inconsistent. A little slow at times and overheard offerings at other tables that were not presented to us. Steak and the tuna were Great although the latter was surprisingly spicy hot but delicious.
