I was very hesitant to spend $35 to $45 for a piece of beef as I can cook it myself, but I have to say that the beef at Ruth's Chris's Steak House is worth every penny.

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/22/2013

Amazing!! My boyfriend and I went for his moms birthday a while back and absolutely loved it so we decided to go for my birthday this year and Im soooo glad we did!! They had the table set up so nice, the waiter was so on point, there any time we needed him. The steaks were GREAT and the lobster bisque was just right! I would absolutely recommend it to another person!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/22/2012

Well worth the price. Was initially turned off as this is a ""chain"" but the steak was better than a lot of the independent steak houses in the area. Highly recommend. more

Amazing!!! 2/19/2008

Been here a few times and love it. The food is of exceptional freshness and quality and the service is nearly faultless. The staff is extremely knowledgable and very approachable. The waiters we've had have been very helpful with suggestions and accomadating to my picky requests. I love that you can add things to your entree (like crab legs or lobster tails). Managers are present in the dining room every time we've been, which is rare even in restaurants of the same quality. This place is truly worthy of 5 stars. Some of my favorite dishes are the calamari, the bone-in ribeye, creamed spinach, and the apple tart. But everything I've ever tried has been wonderful with the exception of the crawfish appetizer (not my thing). I highly recommend Ruth's Chris. Pros: Excellent service, amazing food, great location (near highways), courteous staff Cons: Can't think of a thing.... more

Great Steak! 12/16/2006

If you want quality food and service, this is it! The steak literally melts in your mouth...try a filet mignon, or better yet, a porterhouse. Waitstaff is attentive, quality in unsurpassed...a great place to bring Mom for her birthday, or to impress a date!Expensive, but you get what you pay for! more

Well Done for Years & Years!! 5/3/2006

This place has been as good as it gets in the Hartford area forever, Still busy , packed every night, and still the best in Steak & Service!! Everytime we go we see the same Servers and Managers which must mean that something good is going on here!! Bravo!! Pros: Filet Mignon, Service, Wine List more

A Fantastic Experience !! 11/2/2005

If you're searching for a 5 star dining experience where you will be catered to from the moment you walk in the door...this is the place. The food is phenominal...melt in your mouth filets and desserts that you'll crave days later. The waitstaff literally waits for you to stand so they can assist you at any moment...but never hover. I'm not even a big meat eater....but I loved this place and would go back in a minute !! Very pricey, but well worth it if you want to reward yourself with a great meal ! Make reservations or you probably won't get a table. PROS: Fantastic Food, Very Professional and Courteous Waitstaff, Great Atmosphere CONS: Very Pricey, A line to get in the door...but it goes by VERY quickly. more

It doesn't get any better! 2/9/2005

I am a picky eater and a critic of service. I have dined at Ruths Chris several times and have never been dissappointed! The food is top notch and so is the service. Staff is very friendly and polite. I order more than I can eat because the food is so good I don't want to miss anything! If I want a memorable experience I go to Ruths. They know how to take care of their guests. I highly recommend this dining experience. Leave room for dessert!!!! Pros: friendly service, quality food, worth every cent Cons: none, none, none more

Still the BEST... 12/3/2004

For over 17 years doing what they do best. Sizzling Steaks!! Sizzling Service!! Comfortable and the Hospitality is top notch. Pros: Steaks, BBQ Shrimp, Desserts more

False Prophet's 11/29/2004

Ruth's Chris is an elegant, ambient, comfortable restaurant. However, as far as best steak, not really. Don't get me wrong the steak was delicious, but i have had comprable, and better. Side dishes were wide in variety, and very tasty. Appetizers are outstanding. The atmosphere is excellent. The service unbeatable. wine selection is great. Excellent suggestion to win over a date. But bring your visa card, and maybe even a loan specialist because the prices are obscene, and i'm not sure they take american express. I will definately be going back soon. Paul B. - Bristol Pros: service, side dishes, atmosphere Cons: , Price, Price more

Impressive 3/7/2004

The filet I ordered was pretty high quality, but I was mostly impressed with the service. Not only was our waiter fabulous and on top of his job, but there were several other people who were around to make sure that our meal went very smoothly and that we were satisfied, without being annoying in any way. The waitstaff was able to unobtrusively guide us from course to course, leading to an incredibly satisfying meal. I would recommend going to this restaurant. Pros: high quality meat, good parking, excellent service more

THe REAL Deal 2/4/2003

Unquestionably the best in Conn. I've tried Morton's (snooty), Michael Jordon's (over rated) and a bunch of others. Don't waste your money anywhere else. Ruth's does it every time! more

Not even in Steakland(Texas) 2/4/2003

This is the second time I have rated Ruth's Chris. I am the one who spilled the water because of the golf pro. Fuzzy. I saw him there again but didn't spill a thing. (Linda moved it). I failed to mention the last time, that since we have been eating at Ruth's Chris (maybe 13 years or so) we have NEVER NEVER eaten steak at any other restaurant. Not even in steakland(Texas). Keep up the great job Tom. Michael Shimansky and Linda Kellam Pros: Food, Food, Food Cons: Presant dinner rolls, arn't as good as, original rolls.(sorry more

Real Steak !!! 1/22/2003

A must try if you like a high quality steak. Its not cheap, but you get what you pay for. more

The Best 1/13/2003

Everything was great right from the minute we walked in the front door. This is the definately the best steakhouse for service and for food. more

what a pricy dining experience 1/13/2003

I have eaten quality steaks at lesser priced restaurants but for a special occasion, Ruth's Chris cannot be beaten. Pros: quality food, excellent service Cons: too pricy for budget more

Owner Message

  • At Ruth's Chris, your last bite is just as good as your first. Our perfected broiling method and seasoning techniques ensure each cut of USDA Prime beef we serve arrives cooked to perfection and sizzling on a 500° plate—just the way Ruth liked it.

    If there's one thing to know about steaks, it's that USDA Prime is the best of the best. Representing the top 2-3% of cattle, these cuts are well marbled and hand-selected for thickness and tenderness. Ruth only served her guests the finest—and that's why we serve custom-aged USDA Prime beef.


  • In Short
    This offshoot of a popular New Orleans hangout for politicians features decor of dark woods and comfortable booths, with a separate bar scene. Choice cuts of custom-aged beef...
