Eating steak here is an experience. For sure, the best ribeye I ever had and the whole night was an experience. Just wonderful.

You can get a very nice, if bit expensive, dinner here. The Staff is very nice and accommodating. I recommend the iceberg wedge, petit filet, brussel sprouts and spinach

My wife and I had a late valentines meal here. I really recommend the chop salad. All of their steaks are great. She had a filet with blue cheese crust and I have ribeye. Both very good. They accommodated our 3.5 year old and 4 month old baby very well

Staff was friendly, attentive, and food was good. Been to many Ruth's Chris and thought for service this was better than average. Proximity to hotel was also a plus for me.

I had wanted to eat here for a while, so went for my birthday. Was it expensive? Yes. Was it excellent? Yes. I opted for the lamb chops which might have been the best I've ever had. The temperature of them was just right, thickness was perfect, and seasoning was over the top. In an odd way, they were just... More

This is a live review from the restaurant. Called in advance for a reservation, gave specific surprise instruction that the hostess agreed but did not follow through. No rose petals on the table, no surprise welcome cake as requested. Finally at the end of the dinner the cake arrived which was kinda late. Food is what one would expect from... More

Service is well-intentioned, if a bit inept: drink order was botched, and we received another diner's bill at the end of the meal, but the food was well-prepared, with the exception of the julienned potatoes, which were soggy. The main thing is, the beef filet was cooked perfectly. Very nice atmosphere. We will return again in a year's time to... More

I had crab cakes and a salad, and mineral water. Was pretty good but not worth what they charge. I went with a friend to Ted's Montana which is a short walk from the hotel. It has fine beef or buffalo steaks of good quality for much less money.

Welcome to Ruth's Chris Steak House. Look around. Have a seat. If this is your first visit, prepare to taste the greatest steak you've ever eaten. As founder Ruth Fertel used to say, "If you've ever had a filet this good, welcome back." We take steak seriously, but we're also serious about making sure you have a good time. So you won't find the stodgy, uptight attitude you might find at other steak houses. Feel free to laugh out loud. Stay a while. Experience the sizzle. Above all, enjoy yourself.
