The servers were great but the food upset our stomach. The mac cheese and the buffalo shrimp . Then my date had the crown with the big cube and the glads was dirty. We told the bartender and he pour the drink into another glass that he cleaned in front of us. We chose to sit in bar area to watch the game. We would think if the glass dirty you would give us a new drink and clean glass. The waiters was great but the food gave us upset stomach. We were here from Houston. We love Ruth Chris and im disappointed with the food .

The entire experience was amazing! The food was delicious. We had the calamari, stuffed chicken, cowboy ribeye, creamed spinach and the lobster Mac. Everything tasted perfect. Even the bread and butter was delicious. Hats off to the staff and cooks. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants a fine dining experience. Also my server was extremely friendly and attentive.

First, I would like to convey the utmost appreciation, recognition and kudos to Earl, the bartender, he was exceptional in the service that he provided to my party of three.

However, it’s evident the establishment has been impacted by COVID-19; I have been going to the Ruth Chris in Buckhead for 15 years when in Atlanta, never disappointed until yesterday, it was absolutely the worse meal I have ever had for a 360.00 dining bill.

A little hard to find since it’s in the hotel, the only other Ruth’s Chris I’ve been to is in Asheville, so the bar was pretty high from the start and this one fell a bit short. It was a little loud and the server was quite busy so we got less attention then we did in Asheville.

First time trying Ruth Chris steak house and we went to the Buckhead location which is inside a Hotel. Parking was fairly easy since they have valet parking.

The ambiance was not what I expect for a high end steak house. I ordered a lobster bisque, and calamari for appetizer and I didn’t enjoy it that much the calamari had too much sweet and spicy sauce and the lobster bisque was warm ( personal preference that I like my soup hot not room temperature)

We end up ordering the Tomahawk steak which was $132 and two sides for 2 adult and 1 toddler to share. The side we ordered was steak Mac and cheese, Brussels sprout. Overall we enjoyed our dinner and the steak was delicious.

Parking is odd, no direction on were to park just take a guess with valet. Food was good but table placement was odd either eat from the side dish that your sharing with everyone at the table or don’t get it at all, no other plates provided this included a bread plate. The waitress was very nice but looked at us crazy when we asked for a Togo container we had 2 sides left and a steak. Lastly they put you in a room with maybe 8 tables which is fine but please request turn some ac on cause it going to get stuffy. And the mirrors surrounding you make you fill like everyone is watching you eat. Good experience just need a little tweaking to make is a great experience

Ruth’s Chris has always been a staple to our family. The food was very good but on this particular day me and my Husband’s T-bones were a tad on the salty side. Our Son said his steak burger and fries was extremely good. Everything else was delicious. We go at least 3 x’s a year so we’ll definitely be back!

The food was AMAZING!!!!!! The steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection! You could eat without steak sauce! The lobster Mac&cheese and the Sweet potato soufflé was TOP TIER!! We will definitely be returning. This was our first time at Ruth Chris. I would’ve loved to experience the actual setting of the restaurant but we were sat inside the ballroom. Due to the renovations. But it was still nice.

Birthday Celebration
We chose Ruth’s Chris Steak House to celebrate my daughter’s 19th birthday. The wait staff was excellent! Our server was very knowledgeable which was helpful in selecting both steaks and drinks. He surprised my daughter with a celebratory dessert after dinner as well. The atmosphere was very mellow, with low lighting and distanced seat spacing. It was comforting to know they booked with COVID in mind.
In regards to the food, I would rate this visit a 3 at best. The whipped potatoes were excellent. However, the steak was not prepared as well as it has been on my past dining experiences. The Porterhouse was very tender in some spots but not in others. It also was not well seasoned. I actually had to ask for A1 steak sauce to add some extra spice. The lobster in the mac and cheese was overcooked. For the price, I definitely should have addressed the issue there but I chose not to this time. The food was not horrible, it just was not the exemplary preparation I am used to here.

*I do not have pictures to share that do not include my family.

Our server needed more training. He had a difficult time removing the unnecessary place settings (only 2 of us). We were never given plates for our appetizer and had to use our bread plates. However, the worst offense was serving our food on plates that were scorching hot. My steak was so hot it burned my mouth. I had to cut the filet in pieces, allowing it to cool, just so I could eat it. We will not be back.
