Highly Recommended! – I realize it is a chain restaurant, but it is one of Pittsburgh's best restaurants. The steaks are the best in town and worth every penny, the scallop potatoes are so delicious, and the berry cobbler is my personal favorite. Every time my parents come to visit, we go to Ruth's Chris. We have tried MANY restaurants, but since we have discovered Ruth's Chris we don't go anywhere else.
fillet melts right in your mouth – love everything from the appetizers to entree to dessert. best filet, best mashed potatoes, broccoli au grautin, best creme brulee and excellent wine list
You Must GO! – My husband and I have been to almost every restaurant in the Pittsburgh area. This is by far the best restaurant we have been to so far. Everything was perfect. Our table was very romantic, the wait staff was very attentive and the food was out of this world. We must recommend the following: the sweet potato casserole (which the waitress told us to only order 1 since it is so big). It was one of the best things we have ever tasted. We also had the petite filet which was also too good for words and creme brulee for dessert. Wine list was awesome! Now you might hear how pricey this restaurant is since everything is ala carte but it is well worth the extra money. It is a wonderful place for a special occasion too!
BIG DISAPPOINTMENT – We moved here from LA so maybe our expectations are higher than the average customer. The atmosphere was fine and they did have our favorite wine. However, we were truly disappointed with our meal-in taste and presentation. The "tomato & onion salad" looked more like a burget set (two sliced unripened tomatoes and a slab of white onion). The crab cakes tasted good but looked like they were pulled out of a freezer. The filet was good but the prime rib was over-cooked (well instead of med-rare). They got it right the 2nd time but it was "chewy"...and I'm not impressed with the pool of butter that the steaks are served in. You don't need to do that to a great cut of meat. The side dishes were big but not impressive. Bottom line- When serve expensive food, it should look and taste expensive. Don't waste your money.
"Butter-fried" not for me... – Personally, I like to taste my steak melt in my mouth instead of the pool of hot butter it is resting in. The steak was done a perfect med. rare, but the abundance of butter it was served sizzling in did nothing but detract from the fine quality of the beef. I prefer a Morton's filet with a little bernaise anyday. Dessert was tastey, especially for a steakhouse. Personally, Morton's chocolate Godiva cake is much better than any of the Ruth's Chris choices. Overall, if I have to pay for a steak dinner, I would choose Morton's, hands down.
Perfection – This is the only steakhouse I visit. Mortons is exceptional, but Ruth's is perfect. Nothing tatses better than a med. rare Ruths filet. I love the service, atmosphere and ability to enjoy myself at the bar. Ruth's also makes a great location for a romantic dinner. Though pricey, you can't find a better value anywhere.
#1???? NOT when I visited – QUESTION: To be the #1 steakhouse, do you not have to know HOW to cook a steak first? In my visit on 3/13/04 my husband had the ribeye med rare and I ordered Med - Med Well on my Filet. His was more of a Med - med well and mine was BUTTERFLIED and burn to a crisp!!! The server was also MIA at moments when it counted. It was past 9:30 pm when we got our main course and we were hungry so we ate and just wanted to leave in disgust. The bar service(???) was another was another story!
Fabulous! – This was my first 'steakhouse' that I ever visited, and I was not disappointed! The portions are generous and the drinks are fantastic! I am hooked.....
Wow, those are big steaks – big, juicy steaks that melt in your mouth, huge baked potatoes, and a serving of garlic mashed potatoes that could serve a family of three. Throw in a piece of pecan pie for dessert, and a beautifully romantic, candlelit ambiance, and you have the best place to eat in Pittsburgh. You can even see a few famous people there. When I was there, Dr. Cyril Wecht came in. The surroundings of the other worldy PPG Place adds even more. It looks like Superman's lair.
The best – Simply the best steak I've ever had. The creme brulee was very good also. We've been there more than a few times and it's always been excellent!
