Diner Reviews
  • "Everything about the evening was outstanding with the exception of the lighting. We were there between 545 and 730 and the drapes were closed which means the restaurant was very dark. The restaurant was dark because it was too sunny outside. I don't mind dark restaurant's in winter but would not recommend this restaurant for early dinner dining as I did not enjoy having the drapes closed."

  • "6 of us went to this specific Ruth's Chris in Irvine all the way from Southbay area, because not all location have the side dish, Sweet Potato side dish, we loved from the previous visit a few years ago. I really liked my piece of filet, cooked between medium rare to medium as I asked. However, some of my friends were disappointed in theirs. The size looked a little uneven for the same order and some of them were cooked more than they wanted it to be. I remember feeling the same thing last time that my piece was smaller than the others not as rare as I wanted. This time, I got lucky and really enjoyed my piece. Sweet potato side dish was excellent. Besides the food, we were able to relax and take time to enjoy the conversation."

  • "I brought my boss here to celebrate his birthday. I had the steak salad and it was very good. He had the chicken Caesar salad and was happily surprised to find nearly a whole chicken breast on the plate. The service was great and we even enjoyed a delicious birthday treat of cheesecake, ice cream, and chocolate pieces. The cheesecake was topped with small chunks of pineapple and I think cinnamon mixed in. Totally delicious!!"

  • "I've never been to any Ruth's Chris locations for lunch and wasn't sure what to expect. The same amazing food and quality of service yes but not sure about the menu availability. I went with my best friend and has the greatest time. The main dinner menu was offered alongside a special lunch menu and even though I wanted to try the delicious sounding steak sandwich for lunch, I just couldn't bear to be at Ruth's and not have the filet with extra butter. The experience was perfect. From the moment we arrived to the moment we walked out the door, everything was how you would expect an amazing steakhouse to be. Both the food and service were impeccible and I can't wait to go back again for lunch...hopefully to try that steak sandwich..."

  • "This restaurant always delivers outstanding food, very good waiting service and a friendly reception. My husband and I never get disappointed with our dining experience at Ruth's Chris in Irvine. The filet mignon is always served the way you like it. The crabcakes is the best there is as well as the lobster bisque. You get spoiled with the quality of those dishes and cannot get those anywhere else if you want a remarkable experience."

  • "My wife and I took our youngest son here for dinner to celebrate his graduation from High School. It was the perfect spot for a steak-lover like him. He ordered the Cowboy Rib-Eye, which was huge and "awesome" according to him. My Wife had the Petit Filet and I had the Filet, which were both cooked to perfection. The meat was outstanding, almost melting in your mouth. The sides are separate and, so they say, are enough for two, so we ordered three sides. But with the emphasis on the steak, we found the sides to be almost unnecessary. All in all a great experience!"

  • "We were celebrating our sons 17th birthday. Our server Kingsley went above and beyond to make it a great dinner. He spoke directly to our children made some great suggestions and treated us like we were his only table. All the support staff was also beyond great. Our water glasses were never empty and Kingsley kept the soda refills coming before anyone asked. We only used to eat at Ruth's Chris for anniversaries or adult birthdays but it is always such a great meal and dining experience we wanted our children to celebrate their special days there too. Thank you again for the 10 star experience."

  • "It's been some time since we've visited Ruth's Chris Steak House and now I remember why. The food is great, but the general ambience (heavy curtains drawn, noisy & crowded feeling) that we prefer Morton's or Mastros'. The servers were super busy, since we were there on Father's day. They twice tried to serve our table someone else's order. The waiter and the front-of-the-house lady who was making rounds thanking folks for choosing Ruth's Chris were very good and welcoming, but when I want fine dining in an ELEGANT location, I think I'll choose one of our other favorites. I also think that the $6 valet fee is highway robbery, but I suspect that's the shopping center's choice, not Ruth's Chris Steak House's call."

  • "The special fixed menu is always a bargain for what you get. The fillet is what we go there for. Paired with lobster is nice for variety. Crab cakes and stuffed mushrooms are a great addition."

  • "I've been here & to several other Ruth's Chris locations. It's a good chain, but our experience here was...less than stellar. PROS: Staff members that attended us were sincere. Thanks, Theo. The manager stopped to introduce himself & thank us for dining. CONS: I requested a booth when I made the res. We were sat a inordinately large table. It was so wide, you literally could not reach across the table & touch the hands of the person directly across. The hostess was extremely gracious & apologetic and she moved us. The server for next booth stood and talked endlessly about himself and his extensive travels to his customers at full volume. He knew I was annoyed because he saw me look at him SEVERAL times. Not cool at all. "

  • "The food and service were outstanding. They even brought little BD sparkle things to sprinkle on our starched white table cloth because we had alerted them it was a BD celebration. Simple but a wonderful tone. NEVER been to a restaurant where they have done that before. Cost them 10 cents, worth $50 in creating atmosphere. Thank You! A BIG, sad negative is that it's in a small shopping center. NO buffer between some of the seats [OURS] and the sidewalk right by the cars. For our $350 dinner for 3 people, we looked at parked cars outside our windows all evening. For that price, sadly, we will not return again."

  • "We went for Mother's Day, so there was quite a crowd. Service was very slow, but the food arrived hot and was, as always, delicious. Not sure if it was a problem in the kitchen slowing things down, or the inability of the servers to keep up with the number of tables they were assigned, but some type of better preparation or work distribution is needed to make special events go off without a hitch."

  • "This the best RC of the 6 or more in the chain that I have had dinner at. Also far surpasses Capital Grill and Mateo's Steak Houses in the areas. Better food, better service and not overpriced. Been going to this one for 12 years and never have been disappointed."

  • "This was an amazing place to fine. The food was all that we could imagine it being. Carter was our server, and he was awesome. We would definitely go back and ask for him. As for the atmosphere, it was just ok. Nothing special such as a view or anything. It is pricey, but it's Ruth Chris, the food and service was worth every penny. "

  • "One of the best restaurants for fine dining, steaks, appetizers, side dishes and service. Have been here a number of times and every time the food and service is outstanding. This particular time, the service was very good, but did not rate it outstanding as I usually do only because our waitress had an extra large party to serve as well as our table and thus, was not able to check on us as much and offer the service that I have gotten every other time I have been here. The waitress I had is normally outstanding and normally make it a point to try and get in her section every time I go to the restaurant."

The only thing is not as private as I would have liked, I requested a corner or as private as possible seating area since it was our anniversary and we got a table right in the middle and when I looked around there was plenty of corner/side tables open. Our server was awesome and knowledgeable! "

  • "Our request for a table out of the traffic pattern was acknowledged during our confirmation phone call which was very reassuring. The restaurant was busy, but we were able to hear conversations easily. The martinis were shaken and poured table side into chilled glasses and I'd highly recommend the coconut/ginger martini, if you're in to flavored martinis. The steaks were prepared as requested and were tender and delicious and the side dishes were perfect. All this perfection leads to a high bill at evenings end, but for special occasions it is definitely worth it. "

  • "The decor of the restaurant was interesting. All heavily draped and with no view of outside once you are inside the Restaurant. Food was served super hot and the steak was yummy. However, the ice tea was sooo diluted and weak. The sides were good but NO cream corn? Overall, its worth the $$$ for the steak."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I'm very particular about how my steak cooked and Michael, our waiter, fulfilled my request. My 12oz Ribeye was cooked exactly how I wanted, medium rare, no blood, charred on the edges! Just perfect. We finished our dinner with killer Bread pudding, Creme Brûlée and Banana Cream Pie. "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Always wanted to try this place. It didn't disappoint. The ribeye steak was amazing. I can easily say one of the best I ever had. I bypassed the butter they put on it too. Sides were delicious. Food is very rich but you can easily find light things to eat on the menu and they re eager to accommodate as well. Service was excellent. Pretty much your classic high end steak dining experience. "

  • "Everything's was so perfect. We definitely go to this restaurant more often. Only 1 thing if we are going to say something negative is seating. It might be more comfortable if the space between tables is a little be more. We felt little bit too close. But that's ok. Still everybody doesn't talk loud in this kind of restaurant. So, not a big deal. I wish the cocktail I got, "Coconut, lemon ginger martini" will be regular! I really love this martini!"
