    Nice restaurant but it took forever to get our drinks even though they were ordered first. We finished our entire appetizer and still waited. Just before the meal they finally came. Mine was just a glass of wine so it’s baffling. Steaks were good. Goat cheese and crab artichoke appetizer was yummy. The lobster Mac & cheese was way too rich for me. I couldn’t eat more than a few bites. The very hot bread was really good too. The waitress was very friendly and brought both my kids (who just graduated from high school) a bread pudding with a “congrats” and lit candle. Very nice gesture. Everything just took so long. I would not come back for that reason.

    Joseph the waiter was absolutely amazing. Such wonderful customer service and was always checking on us. That was the only great time of the evening. They sat us by a window and it was so hot that it was miserable. We were not moved even though we informed them how hot and miserable it was. My steak was not cooked as prepared and was very fatty. There were crying babies I get it ut it does not make for a good evening when that's all you hear.

    Extremely disappointed we chose to celebrate our son’s 16th birthday here, which was noted in our reservation and to our server, Nickaulus. Nickaulus seemed to have a nice personality, but the service didn’t match it. Although they told us they would bring down the ice cold temperature in the room, those who didn’t have jackets were still freezing throughout dinner. The server who corked our fine Cabernet Reserve didn’t even pour the wine until we asked him to. So was a corkage fee just to open the cork and not follow through on the service at a white table cloth restaurant? For the seafood tower, the seafood cocktail bowl was dirty, the presentation of the steaks including a $145 Tomahawk steak was poor, the sea bass wasn’t fully cooked (cold on the inside) and was asked if they could bag our food literally 10 minutes after the re-cooked fish was brought back (and btw, the fish wasn’t even good). They asked us to “wrap it up” and continued to swarm our table showing their annoyance until we felt enough pressure to leave while Nickaulus asked if we wanted dessert while handing us the bill. If you allow guests to book and arrive at 8:45, but not seat them until 9:10 then don’t expect to rush us while trying to eat a fish we had to ask to be fully cooked. We left extremely unimpressed and will tell everyone to never spend $0.01 let alone the $600 we regret spending for what was supposed to be a milestone birthday for our son. Our sweet 16’s son was disappointed and underwhelmed while we were all embarrassed that his girlfriend had the undercooked sea bass. Poor service, poor quality, dirty dishes, which we had to ask to take away after it was replaced, being charged a corkage fee where service was never followed through in an ice chamber where we were placed in a corner facing a wall doesn’t even deserve a 1 star, but negative stars. Left a bad taste in our mouth, literally and figuratively. None of us can recommend a Ruth’s Chris to anyone again.

    The spinach was extremely runny, not typical of Ruth Chris standard. The wait staff was kind enough to replace it with a different side order at no charge. I noticed that there are a lot of families dining, diverse customers, but dress code was rather loose. Few guys In shorts and flip flops.

    Did not go as hoped. Took a while to be waited on. They were out of the Riesling wine my wife enjoys - was a bad start... Took quite a while for our wedge salads to arrive and did so with very little dressing and three small flecks of bacon. The steaks and potatoes were very good. Service was lacking quite a bit. Will keep going to Fleming’s instead.

    Ruben was an excellent waiter, very friendly! Lobster Bisque good flavor but watery and the small amount of lobster was overcooked and rubbery. Crab cakes were just ok, presentation was nothing to right home about, very sloppy looking. Stuff chicken was very good! Ruth’s Coffee, Delicious! Not our favorite Ruth’s Chris, ambiance was just ok. For the price, not worth it.

    Birthday celebration. I did add a special request for Vegan options. The website described specialty options that our server did not seem to be familiar with. We asked for help to find options for our guest but it was a struggle. While I realize it is a Steak house having options for those who are plant based lifestyles would have been appreciated.

    I was kind of disappointed with this Ruth’s Chris due to a few factors. One, my reservation was at 7:30pm, we got there just in time to avoid the wait but still waited for 15-20 minutes before getting seated. Two, the place where we were seated. It appeared to be segregated. The main group that we were seated in were all black. Considering we’re black, we were placed in the same seating area and even a group came after us and sat there too. I really don’t want to get a reply back trying to justify why or lack of staffing because it was a lot of staffing. Three, our food wasn’t the best. The creamed spinach was cold and the mash potatoes were luke warm. The lobster bisque taste weird and they changed the lobster Mac and cheese. The only thing that was great was the steak. Will I go again a slight maybe, but I won’t be the one reserving it. I was upset because entering into the establishment it was a group of black people and one guy had a sweatshirt on. One of the hostesses told him he couldn’t wear it, however I watched a white lady with platform flip flops walking around. It was giving I just left from a beach. But she wasn’t told to leave or come in with different shoes. I feel like you can’t pick and choose who to tell about the dress code if everyone isn’t being told about it.

    I am African American I felt uncomfortable when I was greeted. I told them my name and they stated they could not find it. I had to show reservations on my phone. We were dress casual as stated by dress protocol. The food was good and table service. The bathroom had no toilet paper, one of the toilet was backup, and trash was overflowing. I been to Ruth’s Chris 2 in Hawaii (Big Island, Waikiki, Los Angeles, and Dallas). I never had a bad experience except Walnut location.

    We ordered the stuffed chicken, ribeye, mashed potatoes and lobster Mac. Our chicken was extremely dry... extremely dry, ribeye was tough and stringy like it was overcooked and the lobster Mac lacked any cheese. Our service was great and the drinks were great but overall it wasn't anything to return for.
