Private Dining - Contact Us

Ruth Fertel, our founder, wasn’t just a hard-working restaurateur. She was a world-class host. Tables for two. Large gatherings. Didn’t matter. Generous hospitality was her thing. Ruth had a recipe for absolutely everything, not just her food. She never compromised her high standards.

When you book a private party at Ruth’s Chris Columbia, know that every detail, every nuance, every request that you and our team plan together will be executed flawlessly. The experience itself will be unforgettable. Just how Ruth would have wanted it. Whether it’s an intimate dinner in one of our private dining rooms or a grand reception for a huge group of guests, there will be no compromises. It’s how we honor our founder and help you celebrate a perfectly relaxing, elegant event.
