Tried the rest and keep coming back
Never experienced anything less than excellence at RC. Always one of my fave steak houses. Unpretentious, hospitable quality. Period. That's what one should expect.

Great experience as usual
Great experience as usual except for the two families nearby with very young children that made so much noise that it was a major distraction to our meal....not sure why people with such young children feel that it Ruth Chris is the place to go with them. Will try to request a table in the adult section next time.

Great Experience With Minor Glitch
We visited Ruth Chris for my son's 31st birthday. It was a very good experience and the service was excellent. The only problem was that my son ordered his steak medium and it came out medium well. It was a bone in filet and he ordered it with the blue cheese crust so that may have added to the increase in temperature. All things considered it was a great night and everything else was perfect. FYI - We did not mention the overdone steak to our server for fear that it would take a long time to get another one from the kitchen.

Great place for a special occasion. Food was excellent. My only complaint is that we were seated in an area that was so dark, we needed a flashlight to read the menu.

RE: Broadway View
In the future, I will try to request the "broadway view" which would make the dining experience much better.
Excellent food and will shift my dining from going to Mortons now that they have lost the Frank Sinatra/ Pack music... better ambiance here.

The food was prepared as we wanted and the service was exceptional.

It was very nice. The only
It was very nice. The only drawback was they seated our table of 4 near a very noisy group of about 12 men who were celebrating. It would have been nice to get a table in a better location as we could hardly converse with each other.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
They have a nice menu for restaurant month with an option to purchase a larger steak, which was nice. Steaks are served HOT, and deliciously seasoned.

Everyone wished me a Happy Birthday and made it feel special. The picture of our group was a great touch. The food was superb!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding as usual
My dad wanted a good steak for his birthday, the Cowboy at Ruth's Chris set a new standard for him. Food and service were top notch (as usual) and my parents had a great dinner.

Great, but that was expected
I've never been disappointed by a meal at Ruth's Chris. It's what I expect from a steak joint. The menu is simple. The portions are ample, but not overwhelming. The food is great. The service attentive without smothering. The ambience is intimate, yet friendly. I'd certainly come back.
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had a very pleasant dining experience. Our steaks were absolutely delicious and tender, the cheesecake dessert was very nice as well. They have and excellent wine selection but we ordered drinks from the bar which unfortunately did not live up to the same standard as our dinner. Overall, we had an excellent experience and dinner.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great meal, wonderful service, nice location! It was noisy when we were there, but it was also Father's Day so there were several large families nearby. We went for the Portland Dining Month deal, and we would return again!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had a petit fillet and it may have been the best steak I have ever had! It practically melted in my mouth. All the extras were superb also. Yum.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, service; noisy
The food was excellent and service was good; however, it was so noisy, we had trouble hearing eachother across the table. The ceiling in the area where we sat was low, the tables were close together and every table was full. We've had quieter and more pleasant experiences in the bar for happy hour and paid a lot less.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love our dinners here.
We love our dinners here. Steaks are wonderful, service is too! They out did themselves on the June dining month special,

A solid choice
Ruth's Chris is always a solid choice for dinner on my business travels. This was not the best meal I have ever had at a Ruth's Chris, but the service was exceptional. I would highly recommend your trying this the next time you are in Portland. They have a new location and updated furnishings. A much better option than their less than desirable previous location.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expensive but very good
Regular priced dinners are what I consider very expensive. Most of the menu is ala carte. We went to this restaurant because of a dining special 3 course meal that they were offering. The 2 separate dinners, petite filet and Salmon, were both excellent. Prepared perfectly and served hot. Table service was excellent and attentive. The steak was one of the best I have ever had in a restaurant. The added on shrimp however were very bland and rubbery. The salmon was cooked perfectly and was also very tasty.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
We had a great experience. The food is so flavorful and it alone is worth a return visit. We also had terrific service, which made it even better.

Ruth's Chris Steak House
Our party of 3 met in the bar and enjoyed great service from friendly staff before moving to our table on the 2nd. Very nice window views from the table. Mary our service was very nice and outgoing. Very welcoming. We had the Portland Dining Month special. Steak or Wild Salmon, we all had something different. We all loved our meals.
I've already recommend the restaurant to folks at work, and our family will also return. A wonderful surprise.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never disappointed, although
Never disappointed, although husband's steak was a bit overdone (1/2 of the steak). My wild salmon was cooked just right. Service always excellent.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to take advantage of the Portland Dining Month special. The food was great and there was more than enough to feed a moderately heavy eater. The wait-staff was fantastic.
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Melt in your mouth
I had the petite filet. It came out on a 500 degree plate with melted butter all over it. The meat was cooked to perfection. I could cut it with a fork. Best steak I've ever had, hands down.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for an anniversary
It was our 16th anniversary and this was the perfect place to celebrate. Everyone that stopped by our table made sure to say Happy Anniversary.

June dine out month treat
We went there for the $29.00 June dine out month special and it was outstanding.

Great Evening at Ruth's Chris!
The food and service were excellent, and we had a great time.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A delicious value!
First time to Ruth's Chris Steak House and every aspect of our dinner greatly exceeded our expectations. At the suggestion of our server, we ordered our filet mignon's medium rare instead of medium. She stated that if we wanted them cooked more we could simply turn them over on the 500 degree plate and they would finish wherever we wanted them. Absolutely true and amazing that they start at 1800 degrees! We had the $29.99 three course special, which was definitely a value. A great introduction to a wonderful restaurant. We'll be back.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Special occasion treat
Incredible food, from the salad to the dessert. Add to that, impeccable service. You could truly cut my thick steak with a fork, it was so tender.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was one of the best dinners I have ever had. The wait staff was outstanding and the food couldn't have been much better. The steaks were done perfectly. Considering one was rare and one was well done showed how skilled the chef is at executing the dinner with proper timing and presentation. I mentioned we were celebrating an anniversary just out of hand. Suddenly, we were brought a dessert sampler on the house. It was a really nice surprise and great way to end a fabulous meal.

Thanks to Adam and his support team for a wonderful dining experience. My dinner partner and I do not drink and we are sometimes treated differently because of this. Particularly at fine dining restaurants where wine and cocktails can double or even triple check averages.This, however was not the case. We felt very comfortable and well taken care of. We received above average service. The wait staff was there when we needed them, and not when we didn't. The perfect combination.Thanks again.

Happy Hour in the Bar
Didn't actually require reservations since we sat in the bar, but what a gem. Fantastic happy hour menu, and great wine!!! Amazing service and a great window seat to people watch. Definitely be back soon! :)

My husband and I went here
My husband and I went here for my birthday and it was wonderful! The food and service were amazing, our steaks were cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back.

I usually take my business contacts to Ruth's Chris because I can count on it being consistently good in service and food. We have had the pleasure of Raul serving our table several times and he is so great.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to a Ruth's Chris since a bad experience in San Francisco many years ago. A good friend who loves the place highly recommended that we try it. We were not disappointed. It was wonderful -- steaks cooked perfectly. But
next time we would ask them to put on less butter -- it was too much for our taste, but that is a personal preference and not a
criticism. Pleasant and attentive service. A very nice and reasonably priced wine was recommended by our waiter which
we really enjoyed. We are definitely coming back soon.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service provided by Raoul
Service provided by Raoul was okay. He's a little fake in his interest to service us. I felt his enthusiasm was contrived almost partronizing. I come to Ruth's because I love the flavoring of the steaks. I ordered the bone in Filet, because I expected it to be great. What I could eat was very good, at least one third of the steak was undercooked. I had trimmed around the sides of the steak to reveal a very rare center. By the time Raoul came to see where we were in our meal, his only response was; "can I get it cooked a little longer for you." At that point we were ready for the check. I tipped at 20% because the busboy, the hostess and others assisting him were very good.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always the best!
We had the crab cake as a starter, their chopped salad and the filet and scampi for an entree and sautéed mushrooms as a side. . All were absolutely excellent! Make sure you order your steak rarer than you ordinary would as they come on very hot plates and tend to cook a bit after they are served. The service is top drawer. We sat upstairs where it was very quite and intimate. I would highly recommend Ruth's Chris. People say it is really pricey but we shared each course as the portions are huge. For example, our filet and scampi consisted of two 4oz filets and six scampi. They are very willing to split plate in the kitchen for no extra charge.

Fantastic food and service. It was a bit cold inside for the third time.

Skip Morton's - Go to Ruth Chris.
Skip Morton's. don't go there because some one who knew someone told you. It's an old stuffy restaurant meant for old stuffy people or the portland crowd who can't tell what's fine dining. Go to Ruth Chris. The food is good and the ambience feels fresh. Okay!

Excellent service, excellent
Excellent service, excellent steaks...always a delight to be there!

My Wife's Birthday Dinner
The ambience and service were outstanding. Loved that they gave us a window seat and had the happy birthday confetti spread over the table, which made my wife feel special. Our waiter, Jeremy, was outstanding. He was helpful, informative and attentive. The staff here employs a team concept, so your needs are always met. The Maitre d' stopping by to make certain everything was in order was a nice touch. He too, was friendly, helpful and informative, giving us several suggestions for other fine dining establishments. This was the third different Ruth's Chris I've dined at. I always get the K.C. bone in ribeye, but this one was less flavorful than the ones I've had previously and it was undercooked as well. Despite this, I'd go back again.

wonderful annyversary dinner
The restaurant ambience was modern and elegant, with light conversations going on in the background. The service is formal, effective and very nice. The waiter suggested the calamari for appetizer. It was fantastic. The steak dinners were fabulous. All three of us had different steak selection and with 3 different variety of side-dishes (shared family style), the main course was delicious.
Our selection came with a fine desert: crème brulee and a small cookie. Coupled with a good cup of coffee, this was a delightful way to complete the meal.
Good conversations, and a beautiful wife, my 27th wedding anniversary was wonderful indeed.

Great for an Executive Dinner
Ruth's Chris is always a great choice for a business dinner.

My wife and I went here for my 60th birthday. When we arrived we were greeted by name and shown to our table which was decorated for my birthday. We loved the personalized service. The wait staff was professional and not overbearing. Dinner was exceptional, my Rib Eye was done to perfection, my Crabtini appetizer was exquisite. I would highly recommend Ruth's Cris to anyone who enjoys spectacular food and excellent service.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
An amazing treat
The excellent food was only outdone by the over the top service. I can't say enough about how well we were treated and taken care of.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic once again
Some how every time my wife and I go to Ruth's it's better than the last. The best steak we have ever eaten. We can't order steak anywhere else because Ruth's has set the bar so high. We have tried many of their sides and love every one. Great atmospher and service. In a world of so many choices, Ruth's is the right choice.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cooking the meat
Everything, including the meat was excellent. My wife requested hers to be "medium", and I asked for "medium well". Found mine was as pink as hers. Next time I guess I should ask for "well done".

Another Successful Birthday Dinner!
Thanks once again to Ruth's Chris staff for a memorable family birthday dinner. It was exquisite, as always!
