    The service was top notch. The food was not special. The dinner for 2 was $250. That is exorbitant. The restaurant wasn't busy so the noise level was conversationally friendly. Adequate parking.

    With strict policies against being ignored there were several patrons wearing skull and ball caps in the dining room. Also a few athletic jerseys. At the table next to ours a person carried on a 40 minute phone call on speaker. Food and service were great. All in all a "memorable" birthday dinner.

    I made reservations for my husband’s birthday and when we arrived there was no one at the front desk to seat us. So an older man sat us at a table and there was confusion and disarray amongst the hosts. The table was not decorated for a birthday as requested. The bread took a long time to come out. Appetizers were delicious (bbq shrimp and spiced shrimp) for the entrees we got bass and salmon. We asked the waiter did anything come with the sea bass and he said no. We ordered creamed spinach so that my husband had something to eat with his fish. The fish came out on a HEALTHY bed of spinach. We requested the big bucket load of creamed spinach (not tasty at all) to be removed from our bill and it was. The beverages (sprite and lemonade) were HORRIBLE. Extremely watered down. Water tasted like tap as well. Also ordered the Oscar… the crab cakes were nasty and the asparagus was so dry and disgusting. Overall did not enjoy the experience. Will not be returning.

    My experience began with the manager on duty training a new hostess making a distasteful joke of my first name. From that point forward I was put off with the whole experience. I will say that the food was great and the servers were attentive to my needs. Overall, based on having my name being made into a joke, I would not revisit.

    Food was excellent. Hostess at check in was low energy Server was nice but 1) didn’t offer us any bread while we saw other tables getting it. 2) we had dessert which was brought to us by one of the runners, and we didn’t see our server until almost 20 minutes after we were done eating dessert. They comped our dessert but we expected much better better service from Ruth Chris. Place doesn’t feel the same, not as high end.

    Service we the worst. Slow and unattended. The first glass of wine tasted watered down. Steaks were good. Fish good but the spinach it sat on was super salty. Didn’t get bread until we asked for it several times. We spent over six hundred dollars for five people. Very disappointing. Not what it used to be.

    Arrived and there was no one to great us, the front desk was just abandoned. After a few minutes someone showed up and sorted out our reservation and seated us. Took over 7-8 minutes for a waiter to come to our table. It’s like no one knew what was going on. The food was good, but for what you pay the service better be as good or better.

    Had a reservation at the bar. Was looking to get the Filet and Cab special. Host asked if we could accommodate a party that just walked in without reservation that he would sit in the bar. I asked if we could still get the special, was assured we could. That didn't happen was advised in the dining room that Bar specials are exclusive to the bar Then descended into poor service. Ordered drinks. Took 20 minutes to arrive. Waiter then asked if we wanted appetizer. We ordered crab cakes. Very good. Sadly took 20 minutes after appetizer was finished for waiter to return. Took order, when food was delivered, asked waiter for another drink. Dry vodka martini with blue cheese olives. 25 minutes later, dry Gin martini with olives on the side showed up. By the time I sipped the drink, waiter was nowhere to be found. 30 minutes later waiter appeared. Asked for check. 15 minutes later got the check. Very frustrating evening. Not what I expect from Ruth's Chris

    Have been here in the past but not for a couple of years. Food is still great and consistent with prior experiences. Unfortunately the service was definitely down a notch. Not sure if this is the general trend finding good help and people who want to work, but service was not what I remember in the past. My family goes to dinner here on special occasions and so we were disappointed that the service wasn’t on par with the food. Took a long time for drinks to come out, food was served without proper serving utensils, utensils were not refreshed after the course, dishes and glasses were not cleared when completed and before the next course was served. Seems like basic things for a higher end restaurant experience. However restaurant was well maintained clean and quiet.
