Wonderful service and food. Try the crab cakes for starters and make sure you have the Fillet - perfectly cooked to order with great sauces and sides. Wine menu was extensive and full of Napa favourites. Deserts were great as well.

We were looking forward to dinner but it was not anything special especially considering the high prices. Skip and go somewhere else.

The steaks are consistently good at RC - the cowboy ribeye the best of the bunch. The creamed spinach is a must. This location is very casual and the service just seems less attentive. The parking in the mall area is free.

They work really hard to accommodate whatever you want. They are expensive, but the service is excellent. I'm thinking they would accommodate such a simple request.

In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.
