Food is really fresh the gumbo is fresh and flavorful the grilled chicken honey mustard sandwich is crispy and delicious and the dessert chocolate duo is soft and warm. Server Ramon and Eric was extremely great! They made sure the customer service and food was top notch quality. After a long day of work and treating my nephew after his exams before Christmas break I wanted to treat him for a job well done! He enjoyed the experience and experiencing something new with great quality. Ruth Chris nailed it with giving him quality food and upscale class. Thank you!!!!❤️

I visited this restaurant on March 18th for a business retirement luncheon. We had a private room for ourselves. The host and servers were pleasant and professional. We had preset menus which made it easier for the servers to take our orders and bring the food out in a timely manner. All entrees were good. The mashed potatoes and the creamed spinach were good but could have used a little more seasoning. I had the salmon. The salmon was cooked perfectly and had the right balance of texture, moisture, and flavor. Everyone enjoyed the luncheon.

Steak was absolutely perfect. Mushrooms would been great had they not been so heavily oversalted. Service was great and we felt comfortable eating here with their COVID protocols in place.

Went here for an anniversary dinner and birthday celebration. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The sides were delicious. All around worth the extra money. Our sever was polite and very attentive. The management even checked on us as we ate. All and all the best steakhouse in Durham.

This is a great place to get a really good steak. Great atmosphere as well. My wife and I were not as impressed with their gluten free knowledge and accommodation. Also there was a huge spot of mold on the ceiling that looked like a leaking roof. Our food was good, but after a $200 bill, it didn't really feel like the restaurant and food was worth that much.

This Ruth's Chris has the best cook. The food is just outstanding. The waiter named Thor was just so helpful and attentively saw to everything I needed. I've tried every Ruth Chris in the RTP area but the one is the best one for great taste in food. If you want more than just a great looking place to go out, then this is it.

I heard all of the rumors about this place. Never could afford it on my own....but am lucky! A friend of mine blessed me and my wife with a gc and we could not wait... we dined with some of my best friends.. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated without any wait. Our server was top notch! Never left a dirty plate on our table. Kept us hydrated! He spoke highly of his workplace and was complimentary when suggesting sides. The steaks came out perfect and lived up to the hype! We splurged for dessert and it did not disappoint.. but it disappear. Downside.. no refills on steak.. well of course if you want to pay for one. If you are looking to spend a little extra for a treat give this place a try.

Woooooow!!. I have been here only for happy hour once and ever since then I told my wife we should go back to have dinner. I'm so glad we finally went!. We started with the scallops which were astonishing. I'm a big Lamb fan and of course, once I saw them on the menu so I asked AJ, our weiter, for his opinion. He said YES, YES, YES (exactly like that) so I had to have it. It was amazing!! Perfectly cooked and seasoned. My wife went for the Gumbo which remind me of my trip to New Orleans not too long ago. It was spot on!. Overall, excellent quality, excellent service, excellent place. Go. Give yourself a treat. You will remember this place forever. Life is too short to eat bad food and Ruth's Chris will ensure you understand that.

Great steak. I especially liked the seafood tower. Couple of small nits on this trip. They ran out of our wine (brought a different year), didn't have a fish of the day though the menu said they should and didn't have enough bone-in filets for our order. Still was wonderful. I will go back to another Ruth's Chris closer to home.

The steak was so juicy, tender (medium well) and very flavorful. Service was also nice as the server was very attentive. We had reservations for 7:00 but we we're allowed to reschedule for a bit earlier so we wouldn't be out too late.

Our waiter Canton was phenomenal. The food was perfect. My filet was cooked to perfection. The lobster Mac and cheese was superb. My son got the jumbo and really loved it. My husband ordered the rib eye and it was delicious as well. We ordered the mashed potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise and the calamari. Everything was mouthwatering, even the bread.

Wasn't my first time. Will be my last. They ran out of food.... And honestly the prices not worth it, not even in a good night. They said they received more business than expected within the last 2 days i was there so trying to be a little more understanding but... i know i won't go back. There place isnt my flavor. But i will say the private party room was nice!

Sercice and setting far above expectations. A staff that pays close attention to detail and providing incredible service. The perfect blend of taking care of everything yet staying invisible. Food is top tier. Steaks to perfection. Sides that are full of flavor. Chefs who bring out intense natural flavors instead of over seasoning. Highly recommended and worth the reasonable prices.

I went here with family for a birthday event. I had a salad . Others had a variety of steaks and seafood. Their side dishes where fantastic . To much food for one setting. Great service at the table . Wonderful attentive staff throughout the restaurant. Family eats here several times per year .

Its fancy place, i ordered a soup and steak, the steak was good but not perfect for the price the same thing for the soup, not all choices were available, but they really take care of the guests even when they know you are coming for a celebration, in mu case it was wedding anniversary. Am i expecting to visit again? Honestly I could get the same or even better taste with less price.

Lobster Mac & cheese never fails me at any location in any city! My husband & I actually came here AFTER we had a horrible experience elsewhere. I said, "lets just go somewhere that we KNOW the food is good!" The staff was on point as normal, I only got the lobster mac & cheese in this location. However the brand never disappoints!

Ruth Chris is exactly the place you want to go for a great steak. They have the freshest cuts of USDA angus beef that are always cooked to juicy, delicious perfection. I usually get the ribeye which is always perfectly marbled. When it comes to side dishes, the sweet potato souffle is to die for. They also have a very robust selection of quality wines to pair with your dish. Lastly, the service is second to none!

One of my favorite restaurants. The last few visits have been Takeout and I always get the same older man that brings my food out. He is always extremely pleasant.

The atmosphere was excellent, me and my wife went there for our anniversary. Our server was great and very polite and very knowledgeable of their menu. The food was great. For me we will go on special occasions because it is costly, but nice.

Holds up to the standard of its peers. The tomahawk and shoestring fries were lovely. Love how I can bring the bone home. If possible, try not to go on weekend nights.

First let me say the food was ok, I had the spicy salmon and fried shrimp.. nice size salmon and 3 shrimps and yes it’s a little spicy.. I was enjoying my self until the bill came.. The waiter brings a $500 bill for a party of 8 people.. we say no some paying separately.. He continues to say (sorry to inform you but we don’t split the bill anymore so you’ll have to cashapp a person or something and pay it that way.. They could have at least mention that when the reservation was made..

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hilton for 2 nights and Friday 8/19 we ordered the 3 course special l, I was super excited because when I ate there in December of last year , I had the best experience ever. This time my experience was still great but the food was mediocre. The oysters were a hit, my steak was not cooked correctly and broccoli was ice cold, but the plates were piping hot. My boyfriend loved the oysters as well but his pork chop looked cooked on one side and not cooked on the other. My spicy margaritas were awesome… Our server Drew V was absolutely, hands down one of the best servers I ever came across!!!!! He answered every question we had about the menu and it’s not because he practice the menu for his job he knew about each item from experience so you get real honest feedback. He handle my boyfriends issue by getting the manger whom was super nice and understanding as well. He took the food off the ticket and apologized as well as Drew did. The kindness, helpfulness and the above and beyond that we got from Drew was our best experience!!!!Drew you are awesome!!

Honestly have been to Ruth Chris a handful of times by now, and I was surprised by my partner to go back to celebrate a new job I acquired recently. We invited our close friend who has never been, and were excited to show him how amazing the experience was - the food definitely remained consistent but the service was not great, at all. Phil from the jump introduced himself in a dismissive way, and hardly filled drinks unless asked throughout the service. We had to catch him in passing and route to ask for him to take our orders as well as payment. Took much longer then I have experienced and other tables sat after were served their food before we noticed. He didn’t even ask if we were celebrating anything like we’ve always been asked when we come nor did he ask if we wanted any sauces or what we needed. My steak was slightly undercooked, but couldn’t really say much if i wanted. Hardly saw him. There was an issue with payment so he dropped the check off again and we had to wait ten minutes for it to be picked back up where eventually another really nice gentleman took it for us, and finally we were able to leave. Disappointed in service, so will definitely visit a different location although we live so close. Sad the moment was sunken with that energy.

A quiet dinner for the 2 of us. Reservations were made in advance on their website. Phil and Fernando were our excellent waiters. This is the first time I've had the fruit bread. It was pleasant. I got the spicy salmon. He got the 16oz rib eye. The best is to always ask for the steak undercooked and order a hot plate with butter to cook it to the perfect temperature. The steak melts in your mouth. Ruth Chris is always my happy place.

I go to this Ruths all the time and it's ALWAYS on point. The stuffed chicken is life changing! If you haven't tried it, definitely try it! Definitely one of my favorite go to spots. I honestly go to the bar for dinner most visits. The 'tenders are really skilled and provide great customer service. I'm always satisfied when I go. During the earlier months of the pandemic, they had curbside and the food was still excellent. Great safety protocols in place and an overall good dining experience.
