Ruth's Chris Steak House - Charlotte Uptown Ratings and Reviews

I chose Ruth Chris to celebrate my husbands 51st birthday and I'm so glad I did!!!! From beginning to end service was outstanding; Crystal Oravis was our server and she was absolutely delightful. She was very knowledgeable, honest, and engaging. She checked on us in a timely manner and made great recommendations. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly. We started with calamari; my husband selected the Heart Ribeye cooked medium well and I selected the Summer Mixed Grill which included a stuffed chicken breast, 4oz filet, and a crab cake (these entree's aren't on the main menu) For our sides we chose the lobster Mac &Cheese and green beans. Again, everything was scrumptious and one of the best meals ever! Our server then surprised my husband with a slice of vanilla cheesecake with fresh berries for his birthday!!!! The entire dining experience made my husbands birthday perfect!

James took care of and answered all of our questions. Our drinks were perfect and the service was top notch even for the heavy dinner rush. My girlfriend's steak came just a tad under medium (but was still great regardless). James suggested and brought out another sizzling hot plate with butter so she could place the steak on it to bring it up to medium.
His suggestions were spot on. We will be back just for the service alone.

Great experience! This welcoming environment will not let you down! Along with great ambience, the filets were cooked to perfection and were so tender they could be cut with a fork! Thanks to our experienced server, Shareece, we were offered suggestions that paired perfectly with our choice of steak. Will definitely visit this upscale establishment again for our special occasions.

Our server, Michael, was attentive and overall amazing. This was the first time I've ever dared try something other than the filet. The ribeye was simply delicious. Next time I'll have a hard time deciding between the 2.

Ruths Chtis has been a favorite for many years. Don't get to this location often but it was very enjoyable. Reservation was at 10:30 and unfortunately the cream spinach and asparagus were both unavailable when we ordered. Werent offered any other green veg option. Waiter wanted to triple up our sweet potato soufflé. While it is excellent 3 of those for a table for four was too many! Other than that dinner was fantastic.

Everything was extremely good. We had a little mix up with our order. They brought ours to another couple sitting next to us and they brought their food to us. The staff was very helpful and gave both tables drinks on the house for the confusion. This was the first time we've ate there and we will definitely be returning.

We're going to be late, so I called them to let them know. I got a bit of an attitude from the person answering the phone. She was going to give up our seats. However when we got there, therer were plenty of seats available. I did not like going through that hassle.
Otherwise, it was great!

This was our first visit to the uptown Ruth's Chris in Charlotte and during Charlotte Restaurant Week, so it was busy. The service, however, was impeccable and the serever, Tracy, told us she was on her own for just a few days. She ranks with one of the best servers we have ever had!...and that is saying a lot! The food despite the restaurant special was excellent. My 14oz t-bone was cooked perfectly as was my wife's filet. Salads were perfect and the dessert offerings were delicious. This is a high class chain! Just don't touch the plates when your steak is served!!!!

As usual, Ruth's Chris did not disappoint. I made a reservation for my husband's birthday. It just so happened to be the first night of the Queen's Feast too. This is by far our favorite restaurant in Charlotte. Amazing steaks, sides, wine, and service. They also upgraded my husband's dessert for his birthday as the King's Feast he ordered had a certain dessert with the menu. Thank you for another wonderful meal and evening. We will definitely be back as we always purchase gift cards when you sell them at discount once a year!

What a great find for a reasonably priced lunch in Uptown! My guests and I had the burger, ahi tuna salad (both part of the $15 menu!) and the black and blue salad. All were delicious and prepared to perfection! We started the meal with calamari to share and finished with the bread pudding which were both amazing! Our server Ian was efficient and pleasant and managed to be attentive without being overbearing. The managers Greg and Frannie both stopped by to welcome us and make sure everything was perfect. The southern hospitality is evident at this location and we will definitely be back soon.

I was there between lunch and dinner hours but the full menu was still available. Amazing from start to finish, steak was cooked to perfection and stayed warm to the very last bite on the sizzling plate. Make sure to save room for the white chocolate bread pudding! The manager Tim was extremely pleasant and made me feel very welcome! The bartender Erin was very friendly and attentive! I will be back!

This was a special occasion for us, so I did not want to give up easily. I am also not a person that gets ill or queazy or otherwise put off from food. It has rarely happened in my life.
I ordered a blue-cheese wedge salad with crab cakes as the entree. The salad was served on a bed of bitter arugula that did NOT go well with iceberg lettuce and blue cheese dressing at all. Had to carefully pick out the leaves to eat and even that was not that great. A mediocre salad at best.
Next came the crab cakes served on a 500+ degree plate (their description) This was honestly revolting. The very pungent smell of day old fish and burning butter was more than I could stand. The cakes were wet, and looked like 3 mounds of tunafish served with an ice cream scoop. No garnish, just three smelly plops of goo. I summoned my gastric strength and took a small bite, but almost had to give it back into the plate. Just not good in any way. Taste, appearance, texture all Grade F. Although I did not want to, I just had to have it removed and after a stay in the restroom, I came back to the table to see the manager at my table with my wife.
This was the most unpleasant part of the evening. His aggressive attitude was not in any way helpful as he went into great detail in explaining how our (my wife had tried the cakes and agreed with me) "old bay" taste buds were unable to appreciate the sophistication of the meal and the crab was just perfect to his taste. He preceded to shake my hand 5 different times. After this, he refused to give up and basically forced me to order something else (a ribeye) that he brought out and waited for me to try and say it was ok to get him to leave us alone. Mind you, I was in NO MOOD to eat by this point, but to move this along, I smiled and swallowed a few bites. The ribeye was cooked evenly, but was by no means a prime cut of meat. It was not particularly flavorful or tender. A very expensive mistake of a meal. Lesson learned

The service was AWESOME. Our server Blake made the visit well worth while. He was very informative and attentive. Blake was the best and the reason I will be returning outside of the good food. The atmosphere was delightful. And the manager Chad was extremely polite. They both made celebrating our kids birthday memorable.

One Word Fantastic! Our waiter Steve was the man! He gave us the best service I have ever had. If your into wine, he is very knowledgeable. He guided us through pre cocktails, paired wine perfectly with our meals which were ooked to perfection and serve on a sizzling plate. We were to full for dessert, but of course took a cheesecake home. Thanks for a great meal, we will be back. Ask for Steve!

This was our first of What I hope to be many visits. I wanted to take my wife on our honey moon in Georgia but could not afford it at the time. So for our 5 year anniversary i decided it was time. Well worth the wait. Hands down the best service I have ever received . We have already made plans to visit again after we close on our new house this month. The owner clearly knows how to wow. The food was amazing. chef was on point. Thanks you so much and to our server William Who is the best of the best. He was more than amazing and even after dinner when we told him it was our 5 year, He brought a few flutes and some mini desserts to top off this amazing night.

I really don't like Ruth Chris, but go because my partner loves this place. We go maybe 1-2 a month and the food is awful. For the price of the meal, the food should be prepared without incident and per your request. The chefs never cook the steaks to the correct temperature and we always have an issue with the food. Asking for extra seasoning salt/pepper is 50/50 and you never know if they will include on your steak.
The Managers go above and beyond when the kitchen makes errors, but would prefer they ask what we want before they start bringing complimentary dishes we ultimately waste.
The new waiters are rigid and if your request isn't on the menu, you have to remind them to ask the chef or bartender before they say no.
Most recently I ordered a lobster tail add on to my steak and the lobster had a foul odor, so we knew before it arrived at the table, that it was bad. Not sure how they missed this in the kitchen. This is never my first choice for fine dining.
