Diner Reviews
  • "We had a wonderful dinner with an excellent server. I will be bring my elderly mom here this weekend."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "We enjoyed our dinner very much and had excellent service. My only complaint has to do with the lobster bisque. It still is very good, and I would probably order it again, but at other locations it's tasted better. I remember it having an almost caramely flavor in the past, and at the Pasadena location it seems to lack that. Still pretty good though."

  • "The food was so good staring with the hot bread and butter. Service was on par and very attentive."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This was my first time dining at Ruth Chris and I was not disappointed. Service was excellent! Food was impeccable. Great wine list. I definitely look forward to coming back. I ordered the lamb. My boyfriend ordered the seasonal bone in filet mignon. Both were to die for. Must visit this location."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "I am usually a wine drinker. I tried their specialty cocktail and it was the best. My nondrinking dinner guest even had one. It was a cozo lemon drop. Just delish!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This is our 2nd time here and we will be coming back. It isn't cheap so it is definitely a special occasion place, unless you can afford to eat there all the time."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The food is absolutely delicious - not just the steak, but we also had the stuffed chicken and a 'surf and turf' with some shrimp and it was AMAZING. They make an effort to have good service but it's slow and we still had to wait 10 minutes for a table despite booking in advance as an Open Table VIP. Given that this was a non-busy Sunday night and I made it clear this was an important dinner with my boyfriend's VP, this should not have happened. Worse yet, the hostess had planned to seat us at a poorer table in the back room... luckily they made up for the latter by seating us at a great booth table in the main room, but only after I complained. Once seated however, everything was fabulous and I do recommend going for the food!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "This location is great - near the Paseo Colorado and Old Town Pasadena. We shared a meal and brought in our own wine. We tried the new green bean dish and had enough sides for 4. A wonderful meal."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "You can go to other places for less expensive and more expensive steaks, but when you want a steak that is perfectly cooked, there is only one place in town: Ruth's Chris!"
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Great experience. One of the order (Filet Mignon) was really not a good quality meat. Manager showed up and replaced it with a different order, (Ribeye), immediately. I was disappointed the the Filet Mignon quality was not as good, but I appreciated the fact they replaced it right away. Table service still not perfect as you would think for this type of high end restaurant. It took us almost 20 minutes to get bread to the table."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The steaks are perfect and the service is informed, good-natured, and ever-thoughtful."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Excellent as always. ribeye w/bluecheese crust is to die for"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "As always, Ruth's Chris provided excellent food and service. Had to rate the food down a little, as the steak I ordered medium rare came out to me VERY rare the first time. But they fixed it and brought complementary potatoes to make up for it."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Has a great kids menu n wifi so it's great for mommy too!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Once again the staff at Ruth Chris made this a memorable occasion. We arrive a bit late but they handle it with ease. The waiter was excellent and took care of our every need. The steak was to die for. Service was beyond reproach. Definitely the place to go for a relaxing and romantic evening. Enjoy."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Over all beautiful dining experience, The food was great, the atmosphere was relaxing. We have been there before we will still go there when we want a good stake."

  • "But then they always do! Consistent with great food and waiters!!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "From the beginning until the end everything was excellent. The service was impeccable. The food was great. You get what you pay for. The prices are high, but well worth it. It was a dining experience that was relaxed and very enjoyable. Great place to go for a special celebration."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We waited over 7 minutes to meet our waiter and then about another 10 to get our drink order. Our salad came which was delicious and followed by our steak. We sat with our steaks and butter knifes looking for someone to help us. After patiently waiting for someone to walk by, I got up to find the waiter. He quickly brought us proper knifes. Regarding the steak- I ordered it medium rare, closer to the rare side and by the time we started eating it (maybe because it sat on the hot plate for 5 minutes) it was medium. My wife's half of steak seemed to be closer to medium rare and when the waiter came in to check on us he saw us switching our steaks- he said and did nothing."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Our food was good, unfortunately the service was not. Our waiter was very attentive at the start but then we barely saw him again. Everyone enjoyed their food. Too bad the service did not stay on track"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My staff and I had a wonderful time. Service and food were excellent."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "They seated us 10 minutes late in an awkward location next to a curved wall. After being seated for 15 minutes the fire alarm went off and ruined the evening. We had to stand outside it was so loud. Neither the server or the management made any apologies. The filet was great as always, but the mashed potatoes seemed watered down. Overall we will find another location next time for Ruth's."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "If you want a great steak, you can't go wrong here. One of the few nice steak restaurants with a kid's menu which is very nice. The service was friendly and very good. The only thing was I think they needed more wait staff. Although our waiter was great, I felt he had more tables to deal with and was not able to check on us as much as we would have liked. I happened to see him on the way to take my daughter to the bathroom and was able to tell him of our needs. We also had to wait quite a while before our dinner was cleared and got the dessert menu. With this being said, our waiter was still exceptional and when he was at our table, he spent plenty of time with us."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Found the booths a bit uncomfortable, the backs of the banquettes seem severe. Otherwise food and service are solid, as you'd expect."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "My son loved his Birthday Dinner with his family and friend. The food was so wonderful."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "This is popular restaurant, especially on Saturday nights. So you know it's going to be crowded. And reservations are pretty much required. So we got one for 7:45 pm. Arrived 20 minutes early, thinking we'd have a drink, but forgetting that there is literally nowhere to stand on a busy night. We were told they were running 10 minutes behind reservation times. Fine. But we ended up being seated more than 1/2 hour AFTER our reservation time. A national chain like this should be able to manage crowds. Yes, the assistant manager apologized, and comped us free appetizers when we finally sat down. But the kitchen was clearly backed up because it took another two hours to get through dinner. Ridiculous all the way around."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Had dinner there with my parents and boyfriend for my boyfriend's bday. My father can be picky with the seating because he has very bad arthritis and can't walk too far. He didn't like the table where we were first seated . I was going to tell him that our table was fine. I'm the type who doesn't want to make a fuss. The manager was great. She moved us to another table which was better for my Dad . That made him happy . Ruth Chris has the best apple martinis. We all loved the food. My mom loved the sea bass , creamed spinach and blueberry mojito. We all loved the bread pudding!!!:)) I always have a great dining experience at Ruth Chris ."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris is, in my opinion, hands-down the best steak in town. It's big, it's tender, it's grilled to absolute perfection. When I left, I left wondering what I always wonder while leaving: Why do I bother going anywhere else for steak?"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The quality of the food was outstanding and the service was excellent!!"

  • "When celebrating a special occasion or just a great meal Ruth Chris Pasadena is a wonderful place. Great service and excellent food!! What else can you ask for."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "My date and I had a reservation for 8:45 PM, but arrived around 8:20. It only about 5-7 mins for them to seat us anyway. Grabbed a drink at the bar and the bartender added the drinks to our table instead of having to pay twice (I tipped the bartender cash directly). We ordered a filet mignon and a ribeye, with sides of broccoli au gratin and sweet potato casserole. Everything was delicious and hot. Sizzling plates! No room for dessert sadly but we will be back for another special occasion!"

  • "Went there valentines day and had the best steak ever but disappointed that our waiter failed to mention surf n turf special which was steak and twin lobster tail . Regardless steak and shrimp was excellent but I would've preferred the steak and lobster tails"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My wife and I recently dined here the day after Valentines Day and we had a great experience. Food was great, service was great and overall we had a great time. I would definitely recommend this location of Ruth Chris to any of my friends and family!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Valentines dinner service started off with the take your time attitude to the point it took 30 min for our server to take our order but we didn't mind as we were enjoying our conversation. It was towards the end of dinner where we were rushed to leave. The check came with our desert but we were waiting for our coffee which did not come for 15 min and we only got refilled once. Food was good but rushed"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "They did as great job honoring our celebration. That was great. Service was a little uneven for this type of restaurant."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "We had a 6:30P reservation. Upon arrival we were told that they did not have a table ready and that we would have to wait. I explained that we had to make a later movie but they didn't care. We waited at the bar and finally grabbed a seat there. After 30 minutes they came over to take us to our table!!! We would have left immediately but I had a gift card to redeem. You can be sure that after making us wait and cooking my steak in a pool of butter, we won't be back!!!! I have NOTHING good to say about the Pasadena Ruth Chris."
