Great dinner and great service
The main course (petit filets) was excellent, done just right and very tasty. My only quibble was that the steak fries came with pepper, which wasn't mentioned on the menu, and isn't something you'd expect. But almost as soon as I could mention this, they were taken away and unpeppered fries provided. The service was truly memorable, ending with our server Patrick catching up with us outside the restaurant to return the sunglasses I'd forgotten.
We'd happily return to the San Francisco Ruth's Chris, and would definitely recommend it.

Celebrated our 10 yr anniversary, they surprised us with rose petals on the table which was really nice! Food was great and so was the service!

Special Occasion Spot
We took Dad to have STEAK for his 60th. This was our first time there. Great steak, great food, exceptional service. Not kid friendly, but not kid adverse either. Not really a family place, but when coming for special occasion the kids are taken care of.

Seared tuna and porterhouse for 2 was a great choice. Our waitress was wonderful, even asking the kitchen if they would prepare the wedge fries for us, we miss those!
Spectacular piece of meat, cooked perfectly. Enjoyable evening

Outstanding service and food
The service was excellent and the steak succulent, juicy and tender. The lobster bisque is wonderful.

Went there for our 1 year anniversary. The service was great and the staff was friendly and not pushy. We both ordered the Ribeyes and they were cooked perfectly. Wedge salad was great and a fantastic baked potato. Try the sautéed mushrooms and the au gratin potatoes. The overall experience was great. It's on the pricey side so it's a place we will be back to but just on special occasions.

My boyfriend and I came here for our two year anniversary last weekend and were blown away by how special we were treated. We arrived early and our table was already set and decorated with rose petals. We had brought two bottles of our favorite wine from home and our waitress happily kept our glasses full all night. At the end of our delicious meal of the cowboy ribeye and halibut special our waitress brought us a complimentary plate of mini desserts with happy anniversary written in chocolate on the plate. She also waved our corkage fees for our special night. Truly an amazing experience and a delicious meal. Will be back very soon!

Absolutely Going Back
Was easy to get to and leave the car with valet. We ended up being quite early and the smiling hostesses offered to seat us, but we opted for a drink at the bar first. Nice atmosphere with a friendly bartender. Dinner was spectacular as was the wine selection. The gentlemen that served us were not only nice, but once they realized we were joking about things were entertaining themselves while maintaining our privacy. I can't wait for our next dinner here.

I've had some incredible meals at Ruth's Chris in Palm Desert and Sacramento, but this outpost wasn't quite as good. Three of us had specialty cocktails, appetizers, steaks, and desserts. The best items were the appetizers, especially the crabtini, although the wedge lettuce and spicy lobster were also great. Cocktails were nothing special. My ribeye was very salty, and I'm not one of those people who are afraid of salt. It was also a tad overcooked. Tablemates ordered medium rare and were fine. Desserts were unexceptional; very large portions, but bland and not very exciting. Bill was over $300 (not including tip), with the desserts comped (birthday). For that kind of money I want exceptional, not just OK.

I took my neighbor to dinner here and it was her first time at Ruths Chris. Everything was outstanding and the pace of service was exceptional.

Great food with no misses,
Great food with no misses, add great service so a winning combination. Would not recommend it for budget conscious customers.

Love it as always
The steaks are outstanding as always and always consistent. We look forward to our next visit.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and delicious food. We went there to celebrate a special occasion and really enjoyed our time there! Will definitely go back there next time we have to celebrate something.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as usual
Ruth's, as usual, worked up steak and chicken that may be the best in the city.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Staff handled themselves remarkably
Although the night did not go off without any issues it was in no part the fault of the restaurant or its employees. My brother and I went to the restaurant and unfortunately had to witness some severe disrespect coming from a customer. I could not believe what I was witnessing. I dont even want to go into details to highlight what the customer did but instead I will praise our waiter Jose for handling himself very professionally. The manager also did a wonderful job ensuring that our night was not being ruined by the woman.
The steak was tender and juicy... and the dessert was to die for. And somehow we ended up with that free show.

Great Stead & Excellent Service
Aside from having one of the best places for steak, I always find the servers to be friendly, knowledgeable, and courteous. They don't "oversell" or try to have you order something additional to raise your final check cost higher. I have been to several other Ruth's Chris Steak Houses in other cities and find them consistent with fine service and excellent food.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was perfect, best ribeye of my life.
Creamed spinach & lobster - terrific
Wine selection was great !!
Will go again soon!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
era proprio la bistecca che volevo mangiare! forse avrei dovuto ricordarmi di ordinarla senza burro fuso per renderla più digeribile, ma probabilmente non avrebbe avuto lo stesso gustoso sapore!

Romantic dinner spoiled by loud
Was having a nice romantic 16th anniversary dinner with my wife when it was spoiled by a foursome group of loud annoying asian men. Still we enjoyed the remainder of the dinner and the staff Nicholas, Alex and Alex were all great.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for special occasion
The ambiance and service was superb! We were celebrating my mother's 60th birthday and she had a blast. The table was decorated with birthday confetti. We all had the Classic 3-course option. I had the filet and lobster tail, the filet (medium rare) was cooked perfectly as I wanted and the creamed spinach was delicious. I would recommend anyone to come here for any special occasion.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
best steak ive had
I love the food here , everything from the steak to shrimp to the bread. Excellent service and great ambience and private dining
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My dad think the steak is too salty then is first come out., because he has high blood pressure and don't use to eat salty food anymore. Then they change right away. Food is always good there. And the service is outstanding.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We go here at least once a year for our anniversary.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first tine here. I made reservations and let them know it was our anniversary. When we got there we didn't know they had valet parking for $10, we went to a parking garage around the corner and paid $15 so that is good to know for next time. Yes there will be a next time. We were seated soon after we checked in. They had roses spread on the table for our anniversary. The food was delicious. My husbands filet was cooked perfectly. We ordered dessert and in chocolate they wrote Happy Anniversary. It made our night very special. The service was great. Going to bring some friends there real soon.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
NOT a chain. Staff caters to locals. Best steak and service in town. Rich, the GM, will take care of you.

GREAT PLACE. One of the best steaks ghat we have ever had. My family and I loved it.

Celebrating an anniversary!
My hubby and I decided to dine at Ruth's Chris Steak house. . Overall the experience was awesome. We had a great waiter named Shawn, who not only listened to us mention it was our first time and anniversary, but he then surprised us at the end with a special note on the dessert dish! I didn't give the food 5/5 only because the side portions were really small and the lobster I had, was really fishy tasting, unlike other lobster's I've eaten. Everything else was good.
The Ambiance- great set up, but we noticed the table were pretty old fashion. We went on a Friday night and while our dinner was romantic, there was a larger party whose celebration was very loud. Can't really control the volume of others, but it was very distracting.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love to eat here.
We had a wonderful family dinner with our 4 young children. Everyone enjoyed their food.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always delivers -- AWESOME
I've lived in SF for over three years, if you want steak this is it! Grew up in NY going to Peter Luger's my whole life, this place is right there. Great food front to back. Favorite restaurant in SF, period.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as usual!!
There is no better filet in the city, bar none. I frequent many other steak houses but Ruth's Chris has the best filet in town!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
love this place
i always celebrate my bday here, they have one of the best rib eyes because it is so buttery and flavorful. my friend dropped part of her steak on the floor and was really sad about it and the matron dee happen to walk by and gave her back a fresh peice, classy. the drinks are a bit pricey but soooo good. their blue cheese olive vodka martini is my go to, my bestie loves thier moscow mule which other restaurants cannot make in the same way. t heir sides are delicious such as the sweet potato casserole, to die for, sweet. we love their blue cheese wedge salad and caeser salad. always great ! love this place.

I can always know what to expect when going to any of the Ruth's Chris locations...I do not like surprises when it comes to a steak! Very good food and service overall.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Best Steak House in the World
Ruths Chris SF has it down cold. Richie Zamora, GM, has assembled an oustanding staff, from his able-bodied # 2 - Laura - to his senior (and junior) bartenders Joselito and Arturo, to the nicest, most gracious waitstaff on the planet ... and the food ... I've eaten at every steakhouse in America and none come close to the consistent high quality and flavor of the food served here. Plus when I come in .. I am inevitably greeted by a resounding "Welcome Papa Grande"! :O)
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good but not quite
Usually we order the filets. With creamed spinach and some type of pototae dish. But we ordered the porter for two. The filet part was great but the other half was not up to Ruth Chris standards. We were chewing and having to gracefully spit out the rough stuff. For $89.00 I would think better of Ruth Chris. Guess we'll stick to the filet
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
We go to this restaurant every once in a while. Very good food , be prepared to ordered everything a la carte. This time they had a
complete meal with several choices for a fixed price. Excellent.
For this restaurant I would love to see a few vegetable choices served with the entree .
The service was prompt , great wine and desert.
No validation for the parking structure next door.

My wife and I have celebrated the anniversary of our first date (at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Dallas) every year for the past 13 years (in Houston and San Francisco mainly). When making the reservation I always inform the staff of the importance of the occasion and they never fail to make it special (including rose petals strewn on the table, a sinfully rich complimentary dessert with candle and photographs duly snapped by the waitstaff). The meal is always sumptuous, steaks grilled just right, superb side dishes, all served on hot dishes. The service is impeccable, attentive but not intrusive, nicely timed to give us the opportunity to savor the event.

Fantastic Steak, will be back
Had the ribeye, and they were delicious, easily one of the few top places for steak in SF. Worth the price. Will definitely be back.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
The best fillet in San Francisco. That is a big statement for this city but every time I eat at Ruth's Chris they back it up!

We meet friends and had one of the BEST steak dinners in CA ever. Delicious.

Special for Noel Deleon SFPD
It was a pleasure to entertain a dear friend here. He is special to me and the restaurant could not have been any nicer with its service. Noel took me there for my birthday and I have liked thus restaurant ever since. Fabulous.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
My filet was delicious. Cooked the way I like it - Medium - just right. Had the dinner special, and it was complete with a yellow beet salad, the filet, a side of Brussels Sprouts and an ooey-gooey chocolate dessert. Very satisfying.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Little Disappointing This Time
Ruth's Chris is usually good. One disappointment, however, was with their chopped salad. It used to be larger and now there are
many more fried onion rings than lettuce and it could have used more dressing. Next time I will try a different salad. Also, we had to send the shoestring potatoes back because they were lukewarm and some of them actually were cold.
