Three of us went to Ruths Chris Friday evening for dinner and it was a great time ; both the food and service were excellent. The dining room looked like a classic steak house : white table cloths, candles, etc. For aperitifs I had a good, average-priced port and my friends had Rye and Gingers.
My one friend had a salad which didnt look like much, but he said was nice I dont remember the price. Two of us had steaks and one had the Prime Rib special (each about $48). All the portions were much larger than we had expected. They were perfectly cooked and delicious, one of the best steaks Ive ever had. Between the three of us we shared an order of the mashed potatoes and an order of the asparagus ; again the portions were bigger than wed expected (not huge, but proper we didnt feel they were expensive for the size). The sommeliere was very knowledgeable, friendly and helped us settle on a mid-range Margaux ($150). The wine was very nice and if it wasnt for the price, we would have easily had a second bottle.
For dessert we shared a bread pudding and a sort of apple pie. We enjoyed them both, but the bread pudding was the favorite. We finished with one Laphroaig and two coffees. Tax and tip brought the total to $510.
If the price isnt off-putting, it really is a great place for a steak dinner.
