My wife and I love Ruth Chris Waikiki. We eat here on every trip to Hawaii.

Mother's Day Perfection
Food, service and atmosphere were all on the mark. Last year the music was loud making talking impossible whereas this year the music was subdued which made for a much more enjoyable experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue for anyone that wants a great meal and excellent service in a decent atmosphere.

Food is consistently excellent. Steaks always prepared to your preference. Hot butter plates are the best. Appetizers are delicious, especially the barbecue shrimp, osso bucco ravioli, and carpaccio. Service is outstanding and does not falter even when super busy.

Perfect and Delicious
Ruth's Chris, Waikiki is the Best! Everyone stopped by to congratulate us on our anniversary. GM is so helpful & friendly and the manager is so nice. Joe & Tyson are fantastic waiters who are true professionals & nice too. Service & Food were Perfect: steaks—juicy, tender, cooked just right on 500 degree plates. All our drinks were refilled without asking. Really liked that Joe offered to reheat our sweet potato casserole when I told him I wanted it with ice cream I ordered for dessert. Loved that All of our special requests were fulfilled with a smile. An anniversary gift from Ruth's Chris was a pleasant surprise and we loved the complimentary strawberries flambé: Beautifully, Delicious! Thank you for a wonderful anniversary!

The atmosphere and service
The atmosphere and service was very inviting. We loved the relaxed feel of the restaurant. The food was deliciously prepared. One of the highlights of our vacation

Showed up probably twenty minutes early for our reservation but were seated within five minutes or so of arrival. . . Unfortunately we were seated right next to a table with most possibly the world's loudest and most obnoxious diner. . . The atmosphere inside was already loud and, in her intoxicated state, she was trying to scream over everybody and every thing else. We asked to be moved and it was gracefully handled by the manager. We had a lovely (and quiet) dinner outside. Ezekiel was a great young server and was happy to chat and share his knowledge of the Islands. All in all it was a treat, and being Wednesday we were pleasantly surprised at the 25% reduction on bottled wines. Great value for the money!

Father's Day Dinner
Went there for Father's Day. We had the Porterhouse for two - It was so good - the meat was tender and done just right (we ordered it medium rare). We also ordered the mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and white rice. Service was excellent.

Ruth's Chris by far serves
Ruth's Chris by far serves the BEST steak I have ever eaten! ! Hands down to the BEST customer service I have ever experienced not once did we have yo ask for anything from the refill of our drink to more butter for our bread the server's were onit and they gave us service with a smile. Definitely coming back and telling everyone i know to also eat there. Yes its a pretty penny but so worth it!!

The service was very nice
My family went to the restaurant for celebrating the birthday of my son. The service of the staffs was very nice. They were very friendly. The waiters were attentive. The several of them came to check our table throughout the dinner. The manager also came to our table greeting us very politely. The steaks we ordered were incredibly tender and flavorful. In addition to it, my son got a delicious strawberry flambe dessert on the house. We had very wonderful birthday dinner. We had great time. We will definitely go back to the restaurant in the near future.

Great steaks and reliable comfortable restaurant. As always.

Fabulous steak house
Quite possibly the best meal we had in Waikiki
Don't go past this place for a great steak
Came recommended to us and we were not disappointed.
Highly recommend it.

The Best Steak House
I prefer wet aged beef so that makes this restaurant my personal favorite. The service is excellent and the food preparations are fast.
I have my favorites but new menu selections were recommended and they were fantastic!

BEST Steak Restaurant in Honolulu!!
This Ruth Chris restaurant has exceptional service. Wonderful location and exceptional quality food. We dine here usually every month or so - we know this restaurant and love it! : )
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Staff were all very friendly and efficient BUT i have to say our server Dean made our dining experience even more enjoyable.!!! The food booked perfect as always. Thank You!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I live in Honolulu but RARELY go to dinner in Waikiki. There are a few restaurants that will get us into the masses and this is one of them. This is not the standard Ruth's Chris Steakhouse experience and rises above the "chain-store" relegation I would assign to many of their other locations. The food is excellent and although we ate at the bar, which has excellent service, the restaurant servers have mostly been in place for many years and are exceptionally skilled.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb steaks once again
We love our steaks and love the way Ruth's Chris serve them. Amongst the best we've had anywhere and we particularly liked that they were prepared to do a smaller portion for our 9 year old daughter, who is as keen on steak as we are. We live in UK and just can't get steaks anything like these anywhere we know. Perhaps RC should enter the British market?
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have dined at 62 Ruth Chris locations and this was by far the best. Superior service and food quality over the top!!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Solid as ever w/ above avg service
We eat at Ruth Chris' steakhouses across the country. My family knows my order by heart: BBQ shrimp, wedge salad, onion soup, ribeye and au gratin potatoes. The food is predictably good, and the Waikiki location was no different. However, even in the midst of a busy night and a location in the heart of a shopping district (think couples mixed with families, all of whom are worn out), the service was superior. It was a much-needed and welcome surprise.

Celebation made better!
Took my husband here for his birthday and it was such a good choice
Everything from the wait staff to the food, to the beautiful brthday surprise was excellent.
If you are looking for a great steak you will find it here. Our waiter, Dean took such good care of us
And made us feel like we were the onlu ones there. Highly recommend!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love how the food at Ruth's
I love how the food at Ruth's Chris is always consistent. We have been going there for 20 years and their food and service is always excellent!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellant steak good quality house wines and friendly helpfull staff. Not cheap.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome dinner in Waikiki
The steaks was out of this world, awesome flavor, and cooked perfectly. Couldn't ask for a better nite out. Definitely will be back on our next trip home.
Mahalo for making our family nite out before moving to Cali a nite and meal to remember

Pupu's and Cocktails
Perfect place at the bar with Jay and Russell, the hardest working bartenders in Waikiki.

A Wonderful Evening at Ruth's Chris
My wife and I had a memorable evening at Ruth's Chris in Waikiki. We were seated promptly at a lovely table. It took my wife a few seconds to notice the beautiful orchids placed on the table. She looked around said she couldn't see any other tables with flowers. I told her that could be because I had specifically requested them for her. And Ruth's Chris delivered on my request! The waiter we had, Marc, could not have been nicer. As for the food, I can honestly say I had the best ribeye I have ever had, and I love to grill. My wife's filet was perfectly cooked. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Skip the Steaks, Order the Shrimp!
For a restaurant with "Steak" in its name, they were prepared well, but tasteless. But the grilled shrimp and the gumbo were both excellent. The highly touted bread pudding with whiskey sauce was little more than a Cinnabon roll with a bottled sauce and heated.
The restaurant is visually stunning, but the banquet booths have tables bolted to the floor which don't allow anyone weighing more than 200 pounds to sit comfortably let alone eat their dinner. There are tables for al fresco dining, but do you really want to have a $75 per person picnic in Honolulu's heat and humidity?
Ruth's Chris is the epitome of an over-priced chain restaurant with fine dining aspirations. However, they have yet to achieve their goal.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great value
We have been coming here every year, a Waikiki must. Great steaks, seafood and the best bread pudding dessert anywhere!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food -strange music!
Had a great night there last night with some really outstanding food and good service. When the server brings out the plate and says be careful it's hot, believe him! Ouch!!
Service is fab. However the music is strange and not befitting of the place. One minute it's the Jackson five singing abc, followed by Michael Buble, followed by hall and oats followed by simple minds! Although good music, so not in keeping with the carpeted floor and velour type booths!!
Anyway......go there, put earplugs in (if you wish) and have the best steak and/or lamb chops ever.

Romance and Steak
Celebrated our anniversary here twice, Servers go above and beyond, requested flowers at the table (better surprise than bringing them with) and though they didn't have "fresh" flowers, they covered the table in rose petals, which was an excellent substitution.
Food is always excellent here, never had better steak anywhere else and they threw in chocolated drizzled strawberries flambe for desert.
Wine selection is vast, but very pricey. Servers were knowledgeable about their wines, and we wound up with a very nice one, though the name escapes me right now.
Highly recommend this place!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my 3rd visit and every time the ribeye steak almost melts in your mouth! The 500 degree plate it is served on keeps the last bite as good as the first. Just an outstanding steakhouse.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Dinner Experience!
Daniel did a great job of making sure that my husband and I had a pleasant anniversary dinner. It was a perfect night! :)
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The bar has been raised...
This is the Ruth's Chris that we set the bar to for all other steakhouses. The Waikiki location is the best
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The sevice was really good. They are all kind and friendly. They are also very polite. Although we arrived a bit earlier, they gave us a table and we could order right away. Their proffessional way of service make guests really confortable. I really enjoyed the dinner at the restaurant and would like to come back again.

Staff was excellent in allowing us to share our dishes and the atmosphere was just right.

Although the Petite filet
Although the Petite filet steak was ordered, the bad smell was felt a little.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Favorite Steak House in Honolulu!!
Had my usual ribeye and the cut was fabulous - we'll be back!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding as Always
I know many people feel that you must stay away from major name restaurants to enjoy a great meal. However the best service, best food and best location is right here in the heart of Waikiki.

Celebrated 32nd wedding anniversary
Service by the team of Dean & David was outstanding! French onion soup, filet, t-bone steak with bernaise sauce, shoestring fries made to perfection. Nice touch by hostess to sprinkle red rose petals and assigning us a booth.

wedding dinner /family occasion
I booked a table for 5 to celebrate wedding dinner with my husband and my parents. The house assigned us a nice box table, took a picture for us, served a free dessert (chocolate covered strawberries) and overall service was nice and satisfying. However, it was very crowded at the night, and we've waited long enough to get our drink/food served, and when we asked for the check, the manner was somewhat poor. Food and drinks were delicious and reasonable for a special occasion, but the place is only recommended for gathered occasion; not romantic.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good to the last drop
I always bring out of town vendors/suppliers here for dinner and the restaurant never disappoints. Every member of the staff goes out of their way to accommodate us EVERY SINGLE TIME for every single thing. It may not seem like much, but when you make me look good in front of potential clients, I spread the word around the company and try and do what I can (apart from drinking all your Port wine!)
Kudos and thank you!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love the heated plate the steak is served on. It really keeps the steak nice and warm thorough out your meal. Very enjoyable.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Ask for Tani
Our server has waited on me many times and he is wonderful. The food is good, ambiance nice - but Tani makes it all so much more enjoyable. Very nice person, attentive without being intrusive - love him!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place for celebration!
I treated my friends to dinner here to celebrate the sale of my house and to thank them for all they did to help me get it ready for market. This was my first time eating here. The filet was so juicy and tender, melted in my mouth! Usually I eat about 4 bites of steak and get tired of it, but not at Ruth's Chris! We came during Restaurant Week and got the set menu which included salad, entree and dessert for $40, but was pleased to discover that I'd you come before 6:00, the same offer is $45 all year round. Will definitely come back for a special occasion.

Mgr. David Kimura is TOPS !!!!!
We were a party of 3 local Waikiki businessmen who took advantage of the special Honolulu Restaurant Week Menu on Saturday Evening November 23-2013.
Even though the restaurant was very busy, the manager on duty, David Kimura, stopped by our table and gave us very personalized attention to Wine Service and added a big dose of ALOHA with his easy going hospitality skills.
Our Servers Kevin & Brian orchestrated a 3 course meal with perfect timing & un obtrusive service as we discussed business.
The Filet steaks were cooked perfectly, the mushrooms succulent & well seasoned, and the staff was kind enough to wrap up our bread pudding to go, because we were too full to eat it. All in all, everything exceeded our expectations….
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great staff, food & service. They went beyond our expections in meeting special requests (Dr Pepper).
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
We spent our Thanksgiving and a birthday at Ruth Chris. This is the 4th time we've been there and we so enjoy the food, ambiance and of course the service. We've been to the Restaurant Row location 3 times before but this time we tried the Waikiki location. WOW! It was booming with activity - of course Waikiki, but the service was incredible. Our waiter was Makani. He was wonderful and so attentive. We felt so at home with his service. As busy as the night was, he still had a beautiful smile. We were extremely thankful to Ruth Chris for making our Thanksgiving a night to remember and a birthday that was special. Thank you.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent service, food was outstanding. Our waitress was exceptional, very attentive . Perfect evening.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a great steak
I love the atmosphere. Service was great and the steaks are always perfect. My husband ordered the cowboy ribeye and it was a little too fatty to his liking. We also had the asparagus with hollandaise. The asparagus was good but the hollandaise was awful. We'll eat here again and stick to what we know is good.
