Mother’s Day. All normal excellent except the steaks were not cooked “hot pink center”; medium... too rare. And we’re uncustomarily tough.

Our server was excellent and very attentive. He was polite and courteous. The manager stopped by the table, which is special touch of Ruth's Chris.
The spacing of the tables was excellent and facilitated the quiet ambience.

Been to Ruths Chris a dozen + times. Service was way off tonight. Food was delicious. When you’re spending $250 (for 2) you’d expect a better experience.

Food was good— but kitchen screwed up and on of our dinners didn’t arrive till the rest of the party had finished our food—- and it took a long time for the wait staff to even come over and see if there any issues with the food so it took even longer than it should have.

Overall the food service and atmosphere were all very good. 25+ for a glass of wine, that’s a $20.bottle retail price, is simply shameful.

I think the waitress was extremely sweet and made our night. My only critique is that the presentation of the food could be better. For an expensive restaurant, I thought it would be a lot better when it comes to the steaks and chicken dish. The plates were filled with the grease and didn’t bother cleaning the edges off

Great service and very accommodating staff. My only complaint was my steak was not prepared to my requested temperature. I wanted a medium steak however it came out RARE! Unacceptable so they took it back and reheated it. Caused the steak to be dry and I was very very disappointed.

They should have made me a whole new steak. If this happens again, I won’t return to this restaurant as there are so many competing steakhouses who can prepare my steak to my requirements.

Thanks

Travis took care of the four of us. He rocks. Ask for him.

Our plates included the sea bass, bone-in ribeye, and filet mignon. We shared the asparagus, lobster mac-and-cheese, & creamed spinach.

Everything was prepared as ordered and presented very well for dinner. Everything tasted great. It was a fantastic experience, like every prior visit over the past year.

We wore masks to enter and sit at our table. Once seated we took them off. All the restaurant staff wore masks, Travis included. We wore masks again to pass thru the room and leave.

The restaurant was busy with plenty of properly spaced tables separating parties. I gotta say I prefer the open feeling with all the space between tables. Two years ago the room was MUCH tighter.

Overall a great experience for a Thursday evening. Definitely recommend!

Celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. As always the food and service were outstanding. They made it even more special by decorating our table and presenting us with a card signed by all the staff in the restaurant. Very thoughtful. Ruth's Chris, especially this location and team, never disappoints.

Not great. Salads never came, we cancelled them. Lamb chops were very rare, ordered medium well. Sides were not hot. By the time lamb chops returned, they were over cooked and dry and everyone else had long since finished their meal. Fresh mint on menu was actually mint jelly.
Used to be a great place but our last few visits have been less than wonderful. Looking forward to Capital Grill opening close by.

Starting to go out again after Covid vaccinations. Had a wonderful time at this restaurant. “Ali” took great care of us and we would ask for him again. Despite having an Open Table Reservation the front desk staff tried to take us into the deepest darkest part of the place when many tables in the brightest part were unoccupied. When asked “why” we were told that the best tables had reservations. Well we said we did too and asked the lady to find us a better table. When she returned she sat us right next to the window. This has happened to us in other restaurants too, so we just have to stand our ground or find ourselves in the dark, next to the kitchen or the toilets. Just had to get this off my chest.

It was an Easter dinner for 6 and the food was excellent. The steaks were cooked exactly right and the sides were delicious. Tanya, our server, managed the service excellently. She was there when she needed to be and not obtrusive. She was very knowledgeable about the whole menu.

The service was excellent! The food did not hold up to what we have come to expect. The sides were not very good, were sloppy, and the wine gave us such a headache from it not being fresh.

The food was fantastic. Our only issue was that we were seated in a corner in front of a door that was used to access the patio. The temperature outside was 45 degrees and some people were sitting outside. However every time the door opened it was a freezing at our table. After bringing not up with the staff they stopped using the door which made the experience pleasurable. They offered us a new table, but we were already eating.

Very impressed with the Anniversary card on the table when we arrived!!!!! Food and service was incredible!!!!

My only complaint is that there was a louder group in the restaurant area that distracted our conversation because we were close to them. I think this group would have been better fit for the bar area and not the dining area.
