“It's a chain but...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

I don't like chain restaurants, but will periodically visit here simply for the steak. It is hard to beat!

“Best place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

Whereever we travel when we want a great meal Ruth's Chris is always 5 star. It's not cheap, but it is consistantly the best restaraunt- food and service. One time in KC my wife had the chicken. She got a to go box for her leftovers. They took it away and packaged it for us. When it came back the manage told us they had dropped it and she gave us a new complete meal in a takeout container. Now that is a class act!

“Great Birthday Dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2012 via mobile

We had dinner last night here down on the Plaza. Great food! I had the cowboy ribeye bone in, served medium rare. It was fantastic! My son had the filet medium well. It was served with just a little pink in the middle. The steaks are served on sizzling platters and so hot that you can feel the heat coming off them. The only disappointment was the aspargus, served steamed and a little over cooked. We arrived at 6:15 to a mostly empty restaurant. If you want a more intimate setting ask to sit away from the windows as it is bright up front. The back of the restaurant is more private and darker. The service was amazing. They had confetti on the table and a card for my husbands birthday. The waitstaff was fast and professional but fun. My daughter had creme brûlée for dessert and loved it. The doggie bags were bulging with steak we couldn't finish. They have a very nice wine list with several price points. We had wine, cocktails, appetizer, four steaks, two desserts and three sides for about $540 including 20% tip. Not inexpensive but what a great evening!

“You Know to Expect Greatness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Many people put down chain operations, but in this case, it is a blessing because you can count on the solid service, the unbelievably tasty dishes and a reserved ambience on each visit, no matter which Ruth's Chris you visit.

Valet parking is available or you can park for free across the street in a parking garage. If you're a beef lover and have never been to a Ruth's Chris, you owe it to yourself to seek this out while in Kansas City.
