Diner Reviews
  • "Jin was our waiter and he was great! What I love about Ruth's Chris, is that they greet you by your name. Well, Jin blew me away when said my last name correctly! My last name is difficult to pronounce but he was on point. I also liked that the manager, Paul, asked to see how our dinning experience was. Very professional. The staff overall was awesome. I wish I remembered their names so I can personally give them a shout-out. I will be definitely coming back!"

  • "I love Ruths Chris! I usually go for date night with my husband but for this event i arranged dinner for my cousins bachelorette party. I had informed the restaurant that it was a bridal/bachelorette dinner party through opentable and they gave us a room to ourselves. It was absolutely perfect!"

  • "We came here during the Dine LA restaurant week. So, it's hard to make a reservation on Friday night. The restaurant is over crowded with big loud noise. The food is fantastic! We order a fillet mignon and a ribeye steak with cream spinach and sautéed mushrooms. Cooked perfectly! Few things to complaint, 1st is our waiter accidentally spill my wife's cocktail on our table and the glass become very sticky. 2nd is our waiter is way too busy that he doesn't really have time to clean up the appetizer dishes and wait until our steak is ready by our table. I believe it will be a better service quality when I revisit during normal business days."

  • "The menu lists tons of chicken and fish dishes, but I've always ordered the steak. And I've never been disappointed, so I'll probably never sample any of their other offerings. The sweet potato casserole is classified as a "side dish" but it could easily be dessert. I have to get this every time. The summer menu has a few special dishes that offer a nice change of pace too."

  • "Food was great. We had the 12 oz ribeye. Cooked to perfection. Only a tad too salty by the last few bites for me. Service was excellent. Staff was very friendly."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Great service from Frank and Pedro; professional, courteous and knowledgeable. The bartender was also superb; best blueberry mojito ever. Actually, the entire staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was quite good, but secondary to the service."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Steak was cooked to perfection, but the extra hot plates actually caused it to be over-cooked by the time we were halfway done. Cocktails and wine are acceptably-priced. Service was decent, but not on par with the standards you would expect at this price point. Decor is nice - it could have been romantic except for the abundance of casual diners and families."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "If you are looking for a steak, it's as good as it gets. The meal was just lovely. If I'm looking for a criticism, the after dinner coffee was not especially hot. But, that is really reaching for something to whine about. The spinach may be their best kept secret."

  • "Ruth's Chris steak house is absolutely amazing! Our waiter Joaquin did a wonderful job servicing our table. Ruth's Chris steak house has never failed my husband and I especially during our birthdays and anniversary. Having the reservations available through open table makes things soo easy. I would highly recommend Ruth's Chris steak house to anyone with their sizzling 500 degree plates, melting butter, yummy bread, mouthwatering steaks and scrumptious crab cakes!! Yum-My!!"

  • "Our steaks came out rather rare although my Wife and I both requested medium well. I don't like sending food back to the kitchen but had too as the steak was far from medium well. When my steak came back some pieces were still too rare and I just could not eat it."

  • "My first visit to this restaurant. Have been a customer of RC for 30 plus years starting in NYC. You all should be very pleased with this unit. It's excellent. The service was unobtrusive and fun and the food was everything you expect it to be. Our waiter Jason and Dominic were tops. I frequent the Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl. store and am a big fan of the "Happy Hour" there as are many other area residents. Ruth's Chris is our go to place for all special occasions. Pasadena included as a must when in town."

  • "It was a wonderful dining experience from start to finish. It was a celebration for my sister's high school graduation. There was a card on the table saying congrats with her name on it. She also got a dessert pie as well! Everything was delicious. The steaks were hot and every bite was melt in your mouth, juicy meat! Jin (our server) was attentive to our table. It was a first for my family. He was patient and made recommendations that fit our family well!"

  • "I would like to thank Jin and Pedro for the outstanding service and for all their attentions. We ordered from the prefixed menu and it was okay. I absolutely loved the chocolate duo dessert."

  • "I Don't usually leave reviews however I felt the need this time. I've been here on many special occasions however on this visit the service was poor and my ribeye was tough. When I mentioned it to the waiter he offered me a free dessert?? This is a steakhouse right not a dessert stop? On my next special occasion I'll go back to my other favorite Arroyo Chop house! Very disappointed on this visit!"

  • " I love Ruth Chris... I actually have stock in Ruth Chris Hospitality, that is how much I love it.. The reason we dined there Wednesday night was my partners mothers 76th Birthday. I decided she needed to be treated like a princess, so we picked Ruth Chris. When I made the reservation, I put down it was her 76th Birthday. When we arrived they had a card on the table that read, Happy Birthday along with some purple beads that just happen to match her outfit. Our wait staff which included Andrea Rueda, treated her special, just like a princess... The meal was incredible as always..."

  • "We were quickly seated to a booth as requested on our open table reservation. We had a great server, unfortunately I forgot her name and the assistants name. Food was outstanding as always. It was my wives birthday and our server brought out a complimentary dessert for my wife. Very nice touch. Great meal, great service, we had a great time. "

  • "This was pretty much what you would expect from an American chain steakhouse. The food was tasty, but excessive, and the cuts of steak were too large. They should offer 8 oz, grass fed cuts. For the money, it would be more satisfying to go to a more independent, creative restaurant. This is the kind of place you bring your parents when they're in town."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Our Table was ready when we arrived, we were seated promptly and politely. Nice setting and view from the table. Our server James or Jason, it says James on the receipt we thought it was Jason. He was excellent he knew the menu and could explain any questions perfectly. He was patient and attentive. "

  • "Been dining at this location for quite some time. Always a good experience. This time around, I brought my 15.5 month old son. All the staff was very friendly and interacted with him. Our waiter Shawn and one the managers (which I did not get his name) came by and gave him a toy Ruth's Chris cow. It kept him busy until our meal was done. Will continue to dine here for a very long time."

  • "My son and my Mom's husband treated my Mom and I to a wonderful Mother's Day dinner here. I have loved Ruth's Chris Steak House for years. All of our food was very good, but the service really stood out. Aaron, the assistant general manager was so gracious. And the wait staff: Jessica and Jose were outstanding. They were friendly but not cloying, very polite to my 92 year old Mom, (no inadvertent grimacing, even when she ordered her steak well done) and so helpful. The two of them really made our evening a very lovely time. "

  • "I always get the ribeye when I go to all Ruth Chris locations but at this location it just didn't taste as tender and flavorful as the Beverly Hills location. I won't be coming back to this location but I will definitely still dine at the Beverly Hills location. "

  • "The cowboy ribeye and sea bass are always good and pretty much better than anywhere else. My first impression always starts with the bread which is fresh and warm but maybe not as flavorful as some places. The iceberg wedge is my favorite salad (I make this at home with ingredients from Costco). Prices are high but you get what you pay for and this is a special occasion place."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "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."
