    Went to celebrate a big birthday. Service was prompt, friendly, accommodating. The birthday boy felt special. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Sides were fine yet over priced. Honestly, it is just so, so expensive for what you get. Nothing on the menu is exciting or adventurous, but it is delicious. Would rather eat at an independent restaurant.

    Absolutely incredible food and very pleased with portions, etc. However our service was very slow and did not feel like we were given the attention as other tables were. The server seem to engage in personal conversations with other tables while neglecting the needs of ours multiple times. It was a very drawn out evening and we had driven two hours so it made it incredibly late getting home. Overall experience was great but displeased with the service and the slowness.

We have passed your feedback along to the upper management team for this location to ensure this doesn't happen again. Thank you!

    I took my family to celebrate my promotion. I understand I had two middle aged children (super well behaved) , but was sat closest to the kitchen. I get it, still wasn’t great. Food was good, no complaints there. The server was the biggest issue. He avoided eye contact a lot even when he knew he needed to stop by. At one point our table was overflowing with dishes, no one had and water & we were trying to order even more additions. We did not go cheap on anything just because we had kids…. The food runners and supporting servers were great, we had to ask them for things. To sum it up: food was above average as it should be, I overlook sitting next to the kitchen (I get it), we were 4:45 to equate for kids, server missed out on at least another 50-100 in sales, couldn’t get water/drinks when we needed it & took 2.5 hours to complete. When paying 5 bills that just shouldn’t happen. We had our fun, likely won’t be returning. Btw-I still tipped 20%

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - LouisvilleResponded on January 10, 2023chrish, hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again.

    9:00 pm reservations, finally seated at 10:00, had to flag down waiter to take our order at 10:30, two of our three couples left in frustration at 11:30 with still no food. We stayed just to see if food would ever arrive-it finally came at 11:45, TWO HOURS AND FORTY FIVE MINUTES AFTER OUR RESERVATION! To top it all off, steak ordered medium rare came well done and inedible. Our guests said their previous two visits were almost as bad. You couldn’t drag me back into that place for free drinks and food. Literally worst dining experience of my life.

    Overall the food was great as usual. The only complaint I have is the amount of time we waited. I had an 830 reservation, but we didn’t get seated until around 9. It also took a while to get our food. We didn’t get our food until about 1015. We are usually in and out of there in about an hour and half for just two people but last night ended up being over 3 hours.

    Happy with our meal for the most part. The ceaser salad and sides (au gratin potatoes and honey bacon brussel sprouts) were very good although the brussel sprouts had very little honey taste and could’ve been a little sweeter. Our two 4oz filet medallions were ordered medium but came out on the high side of medium-well. The steak came with 6 grilled shrimp which were very good.

    I’ve been to Ruth Chris several times and this is the first time i’ve had a less than satisfactory experience as it pertains to the food. We ordered the Petite Filet and Sea Bass. The Filet was slightly overcooked and a bit tough. The Bass was undercooked and had a raw section in the middle. The service was outstanding and items ordered arrived in a timely fashion. I expect so much more from the quality of the food, given the premium cost. This unfortunately gives me pause to return.

    It was my 1st time going and I decided to spend my 43rd birthday there. It was a very nice looking restaurant, nice ambience, and beautiful views. My family and I all enjoyed our meal there. It was their first time as well. I tried the jumbo crab cakes, my son had the sea bass, my daughter had the king salmon with shrimp, we shared lobster mac & cheese, creamed spinach, au gratin potatoes. For dessert I had bread pudding it was Delicious! We'll definitely be back!

    Total bill was $220. That includes a $35 tip. My ribeye was full of inedible gristle. My wife’s filet was overcooked. Nice touches of rose petals on the table and crème brûlée with happy 59th anniversary could not make up for poor quality steaks. Will not go there again.

    It seems the quality of Ruth's Chris has gone downhill. This used to be an annual favorite of mine and it's just not as good as it used to be. We took my parents here for a belated Christmas dinner -- our servers were great, but the service was sooo slow (it was a three hour dinner and we didn't get appetizers or dessert). The salads were plentiful (probably the best part). The most disappointing part was the steaks....just didn't seem like as good a cut of beef as we were used to. Luckily, my parents, who are not used to splurging on meals, thought it was a good experience and enjoyed the meal. As for me and my husband, we likely won't be back.

    Table cloth had stains on it. You’d think that shouldn’t happen. Caesar salad was amazing lobster bisque was ok. Literally no lobster in it and flavor was bla. Fleets ordered medium and medium rare. Medium was well done and thank god for blue cheese crumble otherwise would of had no flavor. Medium rare was good. Not frat but good. Cheese cake dessert was the highlight. Probably won’t go back for money spent vs quality of meal.

    The food took nearly an hour to come, which was very unusual, as we’ve had many great experiences there. There was also not even a mention of ‘sorry it’s taking so long’ or even an acknowledgment which was also strange. The food was great as always & love the atmosphere but it just took a very long time, and was out of character for Ruth’s Chris.
