These guys are making in-dining work during COVID. I had low expectations given all the challenges, but the food and service was better than expected. We went on a Friday ight, people were spaced out but it was definitely busy!

Mason, our server, was excellent! The young man was courteous, helpful, very knowledgeable as to the menu and super kind. We've been coming to Ruth's Chris for seven years now to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't be more pleased. An excellent meal in a very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. We'll be coming back!

Edwin was a perfect server - funny, engaging, but not "in your face" all the time. Would highly recommend him and this Ruth Chris. It was a great New Year's Eve dinner - everything was wonderful.

Me and my friend ate here on Christmas day 2020. We had a reservation but waited less than 15 min to be seated. We ordered the small seafood tower which was an excellent amount for 2 and 1 entree because we were both stuffed. The drinks are a bit overpriced but they put a decent amount of alcohol so you only need one. The bread was hot and the butter was soft. Excellent wait staff.

Ruth's Chris never fails to disappoint, this was no exception. I was pleased they had a varied menu given most restaurants have pared down their menus, especially holiday menu's during COVID. Our party had filet and the surf/turf holiday special. The lobster was melt in your mouth... as was the filet, but that is to be expected. Our server was amazing. Attentive, engaging, funny, he kept up with this boisterous family and remained impeccably well mannered (we were not always so).

We’ve been coming to Ruth Chris for years for Christmas Eve. This was the first year that we had the worst service ever. When you pay $400 or more you expect good service our waiter was running around had no clue what he was doing. Their were other families very upset with the same waiter we noticed . the manager took him back in the kitchen , obviously the talk didn’t work because he sucked!

The entire evening was outstanding. Food, as usual, was perfect and delicious. Restaurant interior was clean and spacious yet set up. Host was very polite as he greeted us. Our derby, Edwin, was courteous, prompt, and inviting. Our family always enjoys dining at Ruth’s Chris but Edwin made it even more enjoyable.

Date night with the wife. Our waiter, Travis, was great! I highly recommend asking to be seated at a table he works. He was delightful, witty, engaging and even a bit entertaining. He just made our night a bit more special. Food was served in amazingly fast time, everything was spot on and my steak was cooked exactly as I had asked for, medium. Oh and dessert, well, just yum!

I ordered the ribeye (Travis’ suggestion) and my wife ordered the special which comes with salad, entree, side and dessert. She got the BBQ shrimp, which she absolutely loved! And a side of garlic mashed potatoes which were awesome.

I highly recommend this location, everything happened quickly and with out fault or error.

Took my boyfriend here for his 25th birthday. We got the porterhouse steak for two and it was amazing!!!! The lobster mac was subpar but it was okay. The Au gratin potatoes were good. Definitely, cant wait to go back! Oh, and valet parking was complementary!

This was a wonderful experience and the first time we had celebrated a holiday (Thanksgiving) with Ruth’s Chris.

Service was great, location was beautiful, and for the most part the ambiance was nice.

Sadly, a few tables over was a larger party broken up at multiple tables who were causing quite the raucous—they were having way too much fun, lol.
They didn’t really bother us, but others were extremely appalled, and had complained.
Management had tending to the noise and offended party(ies), so I/we appreciated them taking care of others.

All in all, we had a great time.
We super miss our favorite location at home in Hawai’i—Ruth’s Chris at Restaurant Row, but this location was very nice.
