Ruth's Chris Steak House
Posted by Anonymous on 08/25/2007
Came aware it was expensive but knowing that good steak is always worth it. It was very good steak I cant deny that. In terms of meat quality its hard to choose between the best New York steak places (Lugers, Sparks, Dylan Prime etc..) they are all so good and around the same price so you need to judge on different criteria. The service is very formal, I guess some people like that. I think the server should adapt to the people they are serving. It was also not very good, the server was never there when you wanted him and at one point just walked off while one of our party was trying to talk to him. Most annoyingly our Entrees arrived when we had not finished our apps which made us feel really rushed. Everything arrived too quickly, we were out by before 9 for a 7.30 reservation and we had apps, entrees and coffee! So, the food. I had the tomato and onion salad, nice big tomatoes but such a mediocre dressing, I'd expect better from my local deli. Both the mash and the creamed spinach were good but not exceptional but the potato gratin? OMG It was just potatoes covered in bright orange cheese, I wouldnt be suprised if it came from a packet! To summarise: Awesome steak but just not worth the money for the whole experience.

The margaritas were amazing, and the filet mignon was the best I have ever eaten. The service was top notch also, a bit pricey, but oh-so worth every bite!

First off I will say the food was AMAZING...went with a group of co-workers for restaurant week, and you really cannot beat the value...steaks were cooked perfectly and the filet melted in my mouth!...However, the first 30mins of our dinner started off horribly, even though we had a reservation the hostess sat us at a lone bar table right near the entrance rather than in the dinning rooms...then after 10mins our server FINALLY came over...when my friend asked which was better the chicken or steak he rudely replied "we are a steakhouse!"...and didn't ask us if we wanted drinks or anything...we asked for some more bread and he pretty much told us it wasn't his job...then when we asked again he brought it back placed it down and mocking us said "is that enought bread, u sure u don't need anymore"...and when we asked for butter he acted as if we were inconveniencing him and rudely replied ya ok....we spoke to a manager who was very accomodating and got us a new server who was excellent...they also sent a complimentary bottle of wine over....other than the rude server the first time everything was great!

Went for restaurant week and it was great. Was a great value. For $35 got soup or salad, choice of 3 steaks, fish or chicken with either potatoes or spinach and dessert. I had the ny strip which was AMAZING. My boyfriend had the ribeye which he really enjoyed. I love how it's cooked in the butter. Service was good. Everything was good. It was a real treat. Highly recommend, especially for restaurant week!

The most amazing steak I've ever had. The staff were so helpful and polite. A must have if you are steak lover visiting NY.

Ruths Chris has been my #1 Choice for Steak for as long as i can remember. Ive been to all the big name steak houses in NYC and have found Ruths Chris to be consistent and the best everytime. I go here for my Bday every year without fail. My recommendation: Shrimp (BBQ) appetizer with Filet or Petit Filet (add butter) and Garlic Mash - You cant go wrong!

I am from Los Angeles, CA. and I thought the meal was spectacular! Price is never an issue when one can experience a meal in this fashion. I have been to several of the country's top steak houses and found Ruth's to be superior, reminiscent of The Silver Fox (TX), and our own Lawry's in Los Angeles. My wife and I were completely satisfied after a brief escape from NYC's evening hussle. The bottle of wine I chose was a California wine and a perfect pick to combine our love for NYC and deep appreciation for our home state. If you are a frugal individual, or on a budget, this place may not be for you, but, if you enjoy splurging for an evening meal that will take you to another world, by all means, consider Ruth's. My beautiful wife and I frequent NYC and this is always a place we find ourselves running back to.
