My favorite restaurant! Glad Andrea is back! Best drinks! Love the Ceasar salad. Best lettuce and dressing. Petit filet prepared and tasted perfect. Au gratin potatoes- yum! White chocolate bread pudding with grand Marnier anglase. What an awesome way to finish a trip!

What used to be a great Steakhouse in an iconic location has become tired and cliche. I actually waited a few days to write my review as I was fuming when we first left this place. We recently took our kids to their first "nice...More

Last night our party of five adults and four children attempted to keep our 6:30pm reservation. We were planning on having a relaxing dinner enjoying perfectly cooked steak, delectable sides and fine wine. Our party would have likely spent over $500, honestly! THEY WOULD NOT...More

Having been to many Ruth's Chris restaurants in numerous cities, we went for dinner expecting a quality experience. Not even close. We had a reservation and were kept waiting for an extended period of time, only to be seated at a very "meh" table. From...More
