We went...on all days...New Year's Eve. The reservation was made months in advance which gave us choice time. Food was plentiful and delicious. Server was excellent as well, suggesting which Cab to pick and she was spot-on.

We had reservations and after looking at your menu on line, we cancelled them. I don't mind the high prices, but I've never eaten anywhere except cafeterias where you are charged a la cart prices for everything on your plate. Sounds like a buffet to...More

Ordinarily, Ruth’s Chris Steak House is a very reliable, tasty, and consistent option for a high end steak. I arrived 25 minutes before closing and employees were still collecting pay and charging full price for food & drinks, but clearly the “A” team was not...More

If you're not that hungry, but want great food at happy hour prices, then go to Ruth Chris before 6. Food and service was excellent, and 1/2 the price of the normal dinner meal. I had a great time visiting with friends there.

Not certain about gift certificates. Our meal, with two "miniature" steaks, two side dishes and no beverages was $140. To include cocktails, salads and dessert, $200 should cover it.
