    Almost without exception Ruth's Chris is top of the mark. The Portland restaurant is a notch above that. Everything was perfect. The Petite filet and the Petit Ribeye were cooked to perfection. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff was welcoming, friendly and very efficient. Great evening.

    I've almost always had exceptional experiences at Ruth's Chris, but this time was an exception. The 3 steaks which were ordered were all overcooked as were the onion rings. The server was very good but seemed like he had too many tables that Friday night. The spinach au gratin was very average. The Creme Brule was good. All in all, there are at least 3 or 4 better steak houses in the downtown Portland area and it'll be awhile before we'll be back to this one. We expected better and have had much better in the past.

    Dined on 8/30/2014
    Compared to the previous visits, everything was "just okay." Especially the food. We had crab cakes, tomato/onion salad, petite filet mignon with shrimp/filet mignon with asparagus and mushroom. Nothing "wowed" us like it used to. Even filet mignon was mediocre (only one of my two medallions was soft and good). Did the chef change? Or did our taste bud change? I don't know. Regarding the service, again it was okay but nothing special. Our server was nice but not personable. Overall, this dining experience made us think let's try other steak houses next time we eat steak. It's a fair evaluation if you are paying more than $100 per person for a dinner. We always thought Ruth Chris is better than Morton's, but now we are not sure.

    I went to Ruth's Chris Steak House for the first time on Friday the 22nd, of Aug. I will honestly say that if you don't mind spending a little extra cash you should order the Bone in Filet Mignon. It has to be the best steak I have ever eaten. It melts in your mouth and is full of natural flavors.

    My husband and I treat ourselves to an extra special dinner out once or twice a year. Ruth's Chris is on our short list. Known for their high quality and perfectly cooked steaks, they have always gotten ours right. But you get what you pay for so be warned that this restaurant is not cheap! Parking is easier since they've move to their new location on Broadway, but they offer valet parking for $9 if you so choose. Great, friendly service, plenty of waitstaff. Save up your hard earned money and go to Ruth's Chris at least once in your life.

    My wife and I have dined at Ruth Chris several times and at many of their locations across the country. The food is always delicious as is the service-with this expierence being the only exception. Our service in Portland was awful, the ambiance and food meet the normal RC standard and we enjoyed our expierence despite the service that was amusingly awful despit our regular practice of giving the benefit of the doubt. For the price, I expect more. Next visit to Portland we will be trying another restraunte.

    We celebrated our oldest son's birthday that evening, as we have with all the men in the family for years. Unfortunately, it was not our usual great experience. Of the 4 meals, only one came out cooked properly, the rest were way undercooked. One was sent back, only to return overcooked. I think we will celebrate the next birthday somewhere else.

    Was looking forward to dining here - moved away from Portland for 5 years and went to the old location often. Honestly, the chopped salad was the best anywhere. Not anymore - it is a different version, stringy, wilted lettuce, missing some key ingredients from the past - I know, because I googled it back then and made it myself. The steak was okay, but I can get a better one at Saylers OCK on SE 102nd and Stark for 1/3 the price. The new location is nice, bar looks like fun, but it is also obvious that the business diner gets all the attention; dining on the company bankcard always provides a higher ticket total,

    This was our 42nd wedding anniversary celebration and from the time we were seated at our table, the restaurant made us feel very special. There was anniversary confetti on the table. We were seated in a quiet booth. The wait staff were excellent and recognized our special day. We were immediately given glasses of champagne on the house and our desserts were complimentary. We have dined at Ruth Chris before but not at this location. It was a positive experience all the way around and I would highly recommend it.

    Went here for our first anniversary, and it was incredible! The service first of all was amazing! Our waiter took the time to explain the menu and very knowledgeable! Made us feel very comfortable and was not trying to up-sell us at all, it was very comfortable! Appetizers were out fast and very good. Get the crab stuffed mushrooms. The wife and I both got steak and lobster, and we couldn't decide who's tasted better, they were both well worth the price! Go for the food and the atmosphere, not the price or calorie count! We will be back for sure.

    We headed here for the best steak in town. We were not disappointed. Perfect meal, wonderfully prepared. One small fault, I ordered a salad with the lemon/basil dressing. The dressing was the consistency of mayo and did not "flow" over the greens. Very little flavor. But, overall a wonderful dining experience.

    Actually, this was our second time back to RC since it moved to its new location. The first time we were seating on the main floor and it was very noisy. This time we were put upstairs and it was delightful. We tried their updated price fixed menu which was smaller portions but included soup or salad, a meat and/or seafood course, a side dish and a dessert. It was terrific and the steak was mouth watering and done to "our" perfection.

    We've eaten at Ruth's Chris in many locations but this one is truly top notch. Our server, Mason, was so knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. The coconut ginger martini was really special. Service was great and the food delicious. I always find myself going to a Ruth's Chris since the food is consistent and I always get what I'm expecting.....good food and good service. Adam, whom I assume was the manager, came over to make sure we were happy with everything and you can tell he has his finger on the pulse of what' sharpening in his restaurant.

Every single part of the dinner was absolutely perfect. The drinks, the appetizers, the main course, the dessert. Our server was an absolute sweetheart, our water glasses were filled constantly, and the overall theme that everyone was genuinely pleased to have us there. I say go!!! :)

    Until I saw the listing in PDX Dining Month, I had no idea RC had moved so close to the Oregon Symphony's concert hall. Very nice! Craig, our server, was most excellent. My only complaint - and I use that term hesitantly because the meal was incredible - was that the PDM menu listed cheesecake with fresh berries, as the dessert. When Craig brought our dessert, it was a pineapple/coconut bread pudding with dark chocolate. Super tasty, but the I'm very health conscious and almost never treat myself to dessert, so I was anticipating the cheesecake and berries and it was a factor in my decision to dine at RC. I was disappointed in the substitution and that's the reason for only 4 stars. The PDM menu as offered would have been an certain 5.
