- Anniversary DinnerwineloverVIPDined on 10/13/2014We both had a wonderful time celebrating our wedding anniversary. Bar drink specials were a great start to a fine meal. Enjoyed the three- course special of salad, ribeye steak (and veal chop for me) and delicious dessert of chocolate cheesecake, with chocolate/nut chips. The food and service is always excellent at the Irvine's Ruth's Chris. This location has the veal chop for the next few months and it is tender, with a lot of good flavor. Look forward to our next visit!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fabulous SteaksPhillyGalVIPDined on 10/11/2014Flawless execution of steaks, consistent in quality and flavor.Special Features:
- Ruth's Chris Never Disappoints.eatwell2niteDined on 9/23/2014Went to Irvine Ruth's Chris Steakhouse on Tuesday to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. The Cowboy Ribeye was outstanding. Great food and wonderful experience overall. We didn't tell them about our anniversary as we don't like the additional attention.Special Features:
- Delicious birthday dinner!CheynagalVIPDined on 9/19/2014They made me feel very special. Started out with little Happy Birthday confetti sprinkled on the table. Our server recommended the hand crafted ginger, coconut, lemon drop. Light & refreshing. Then I had the Chilean Seabass & my boyfriend had the 16 oz. 3 course dinners. They came to the table sizzling & perfect! I loved the lobster bisque & he loved his Caesar salad. We had to share both! It was a perfect birthday dinner. Too bad I'm not rich enough to eat here more often!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday CelebrationwineloverVIPDined on 9/12/2014Two of us had the three course meal special. The 16 ounce ribeye and the 14 ounce veal chop were delicious, tender and cooked to a perfect medium rare. The dessert was a creamy chocolate fudge turtle cake that hit the spot! Mine came with a birthday wish and ice cream. Austin, Michael and Gail helped to make my day a special occasion with their birthday wishes! Thank you. A great place for either lunch on Friday or a fun dinner. We enjoy the excellent service and delicious food items. We will be back again for the limited time (three months) veal chop- the best in Orange County.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good but slowblakeaymDined on 9/7/2014The food was, as expected, very good. With 4 adults, 2 teenagers, 6 bar drinks, we got out for $500. A bit high in my eyes for this restaurant. Now my main issue is service. I can understand the wait staff allowing guests time to enjoy drinks, etc, but this was a bit too much time. I think we were there 2.25 or so hours. Having older parents and younger kids, 1.5 hrs would have been plenty of time.Special Features:
- Not to my standardOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/6/2014I went on a date here and from the get go I wasn't impressed. The place was loud and the hostess had trouble finding the seats we were going to be sitting at. The steaks were over cooked, when asked for medium cooked, the steaks came out close to well done with no pink in the middle. Because the steaks were not up to par, my date asked for steak sauce several times and it was not brought out at all. By the time they apologized for their mistake, we were already done with our dinner. One positive is the calamari. I would recommend that
- consistently goodluv2eatVIPDined on 9/6/2014Always a pleasure to dine there because you can count on the excellent quality of the steaks. We love it!Special Features:
- OliverSDined on 9/3/2014Had Dinner there with my colleague. John was our server. He has been there for almost 18 years since th epace opened. Very good sign. Excellent service and perfectly cooked steak. We both had filets and I had the bone-in-filet. I corked a bottle of wine and I offered a glass to John. He accepted and you know the drill. This place knows teak and cooks it to perfection every time.Special Features:
- The chopped salad is a must!foodie4lifeDined on 8/31/2014We dine at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Irvine for all our special occasions - anniversaries, birthdays, graduation, etc. Their steaks are simply amazing, cooked perfectly to your request, seasoned lightly & topped with butter. My favorite side dish is their chopped salad (sans bacon as I'm allergic). It's more lady-like to eat as it's already in bite sized pieces, it is coated with the perfect amount of creamy dressing, & the combination of vegetables with the (surprise!) raw sliced mushrooms is divine! My husband always orders his own personal cheesecake for dessert & this time I tried the lemon pie, which was light with a crispy crust.Special Features:
- Birthday celebrationIreneDined on 8/23/2014We were a party of six. Reservation was for 8:00 pm. Arrived at 7:30 for cocktails & were td our table would be available earlier. Did not get seated until 8:10. Not that late, but don't tell us we will be seated earlier! Staff was very polite but disappeared thru the evening. We had to hunt down our server for drinks and some side requests. When we did order the drinks, the bar ran out of Gtey Goose Vodka & the bottle of wine we ordered was not avaliable. A little disappointed. Fortunately, the food was excellent & hope they were having a "bad night."Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Perfect Night OutOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 8/16/2014Family event for parents 65th wedding anniversary. Everything from valet, hostess, wait service, food was spot on was perfect. Helen our waitress was amazing, courses were prompt but not pushed, and food was to die for. All steaks and sides cooked to perfection. Thank you for making a memory.Special Features:
- Very good but room for improvementdaijonesVIPDined on 8/16/2014Long time fan of Ruths but recent poor experiences so finally gave this a try and it was very good. Excellent to amazing service, most of food was perfect including shrimp cocktail which normally gets overcooked but first attempt at both our filet and swordfish entrees were very undercooked and took a while to get corrected plus side dishes that had gone cold by then. We will go back and hope those mistakes won't happen again even though not greatest ambiance with screaming kids etc.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great steak house!TweetieDined on 8/15/2014The food here is always great. We brought our friends here for their birthday celebration. Service a touch slow from beginning, but once we ordered, appetizers, soup and salads all came out at the same time!! We brought our wines, 1973 & 1975, old cords, but Helen was able to uncorded beautifully. They took note of my request when I made the reservation regarding our friends birthday. Both of our friends were offered a complimentary birthday. Nice touch.Special Features:

- Special night, well doneSTWLJWDined on 8/8/2014Saturday we went to Ruth's Chris Irvine for our anniversary and they did great. We did not tell them about our anniversary ahead of time since we didn't want a dessert, but I quietly arranged for the parking valet to bring my wife's anniversary present out of the trunk and to our table about 1/2 hour after we arrived. He did a nice job of the presentation and then the waiter appeared a few minutes later to sprinkle colorful "Happy Anniversary" decorations on the table as she opened her present. All nicely and smoothly done. We shared the spicy lobster and crab stuffed mushrooms, had steaks and fresh vegetables and nibbled at some shoestring fries, and then received a surprise simple dish of nice berries. Great food, perfectly presented.Special Features:
- Better than advertisedAR23VIPDined on 8/4/2014I took my girlfriend to Ruth's Chris for her birthday dinner and was not disappointed. Our server was attentive, knew the menu very well and he (Adam) seemed to be right on time with everything. Our steaks were cooked as ordered and were absolutely delicious. I am not upset that I got exactly what I paid for. An excellent meal and great service. By the way, the Blueberry Mojito was very, very good. I highly recommend it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Steak HouseOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/24/2014This was one of the best steaks I've had in a long, long time. Service was excellent and classy surroundings. The prices are reasonable for an upper end restaurant. I would definitely go back!Special Features:
- Enjoyed Our EveningCarolDined on 7/24/2014We had a wonderful evening. We always try to book 5:00 pm. It's quiet and you can hang out a little longer without feeling guilty. The food was excellent!! We're Steak Lovers, but can Never pass up the Stuffed Chicken or the Sweet Potatoe Casserole. Then the Crème Brule' for dessert. The service was also good. Very attentive. It's our favorite restaurant to go to for a celebration or just an occasional splurge. They seem to go out of their way to make it an enjoyable and pleasant experience. We have two that are much closer to home (Pasadena and Anaheim), but we tend to stick with one that works hard to get it right. Been dining at the Irvine location for Several years.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best Overall!FuzzyDined on 7/22/2014The food, the service, the wine selection...everything was nothing but superb! Every Ruth's Chris Steak House is slightly different, and this one is more casual than others we've been to. However, we were a little surprised to see a pair in shorts and jeans. I know it's California, but sometimes it is nice to go to a place, all dressed up and enjoy a nice dinner. On the food note, the bone-in filet was so tender, it melted in my mouth and the Cowboy Rib Eye was ever so flavorful. The stakes here never disappoint us. The lobster mac and cheese was my husband's favorite and he is not even a mac and cheese person. It was that good. It is definitely one of our favorite restaurants.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Dinner at Ruth's ChrisSuz2dinDined on 7/9/2014Everything 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I enjoyed my steakkuishinboDined on 7/6/20146 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.Special Features:
- Birthday DinnerKari641Dined on 7/5/2014Took my best friend there for dinner and it was amazing. Would recommend this restaurant but it's no cheap.Special Features:
- Food excellent seating not so greatDavidZDined on 7/5/2014We were celebrating our anniversary and decided to again dine at Ruth's Chris. The food is always excellent and so is the service. We got stuck in the small room at a table for two in between a booth and a table for five. Our table just did not fit and it was awkward. The food was good but it isn't only the food.Special Features:
- 21st Birthday CelebrationSmnavarroDined on 7/5/2014I took my nephew to celebrate his 21st birthday, a big milestone. The staff took such good care of us, were very attentive and the food was good. They brought out a special dessert for him, which was a nice surprise for us all. We had a wonderful evening there and would highly recommend the place!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Perfect!TrinaDined on 6/27/2014I'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...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Birthday lunchDenaVIPDined on 6/27/2014I 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!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Place for Special OccasionOpenTable Diner Since 2003Dined on 6/23/2014My 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
