Diner Reviews
  • "Ruth's Chris on North Harbor Drive is one of our favorite fine dining restaurants! The food is consistently fantastic and the service (Peter, especially) goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we are well taken care of. We tried the new lobster macaroni and cheese, which came highly recommended, and it was terrific! I love their ribeye - served on 500 degree plates, so when they say "don't touch", DON'T TOUCH! - and they even took a picture of us and gave us a copy, which was great since we were celebrating our anniversary. Can't wait to return!"

  • "This was our first experience at the SD Ruth's Chris. We were seated in a booth (semi circle shaped, 4 people) facing the harbor and had a beautiful view. The service was outstanding and the food was delectable. After dinner we watched the fireworks over Sea World from our table while having dessert. It was a wonderful evening."

  • "My husband steak, the bone in filet was wonderful, I had scallops they were ok. I thought the food for the price, lacked presentation. The plates they served there food on were coffee shop plates, which took away from the presentation of the food. The lyonaise potatoes that I ordered were not very good, the waiter replaced them with mashed potatoes that were much better. For two people our bill was 180.00 without the tip , we each had two drinks and one salad. All and all I would not go back."

The food was delicious and everything about the dinner was marvelous. The fireworks afterwards were also great. A wonderful evening overall."

  • "Wanted a romantic dinner for my husband's birthday - we love Ruth's Chris SH in Carmel Del Mar so I booked with Open Table for San Diego. No fuss. After rejecting the table offered to us too as too close to the blender at the bar, we waited another 15 minutes and were given a bay view window. Everything started to fall into place after that. Pricey dinner but overall a good experience. We would go back of course."

  • "If you wish to have a great steak in a terrific setting, Ruth's Chris on Harbor is the place to go. Phenomenal food, matched with service that you can trust will always put yours and your guests enjoyment as their priority. The Lobster Mac-n-Cheese and Seared Ahi are my favorite starters, and I always end with Crème brûlée. Try them and you'll see why!"

  • "My new husband took me to this excellent restaurant during our honeymoon. I'd never been to one and he wanted to show me what I'd been missing. When the food arrived it was hot, fresh and incredibly delicious!! The fact that the filet was still sizzling on the searing hot plate was impressive, but the flavor is what sold me. WOW! If I could make steak taste this good is never leave the house. Instead I'll return to the nearest Ruth's Chris at my next opportunity."

  • "We are not newbies at Ruth Chris and it is our go-to restaurant for a great steak. This time it was awful hard to enjoy our food. The internal temperature of the restaurant at 6 pm was 81 degrees, and sweating as if we were on a humid, tropical island. So when our food came out on a 500 degree plate it got a tad bit hotter that we really couldn't enjoy our food. The issue was brought to the attention of mgmt and excuses that the thermostat was not working, but shouldn't this be part of the mgr's job to make sure that the facility was working properly before it opens? I felt sorry for the staff who had to work in unacceptable conditions. The temperature outside was cooler than inside the restaurant. This is just unacceptable!"

  • "This restaurant is a favorite of my husband's and we dine here 2-3 times a year when we want a treat. This visit did not start so well when we were kept waiting almost 30 minutes past our reservation time. It was the last straw when a couple who had arrived after us was called for a table. But we were seated promptly after complaining, and the manager showed up a few minutes later with a complimentary appetizer, which was a really nice touch. The manager stopped back a couple of times to see how we were enjoying our dinner, and our waitress was superb. The management just needs to make sure that the hostesses up their game to match the remainder of the service, the food, and the view (and the prices)."

  • "This was my first time to Ruth's Chris and it was amazing. we celebrated me and my wife's first anniversary. I ordered the New York Strip and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had.

  • "I eat at high end restaurant's quite often and have never been treated with such distance and disdain. Our server had an issue with us and I am not sure why but we were kind and did not complain. She might have had a bad day but we pay to much money for bad service. Spoke with manager and made them aware."

  • "Excellent reception on arrival, rose petals on the table, amazing service, fabulous food, spectacular view of the bay, special "Happy Anniversary" notice inside the menu ending with a "Happy Anniversary" message written in chocolate on the plate our cheesecake came on! Who could ask for a better anniversary dinner? We ate dinner here the night we got engaged and eleven years later it is even better than we remembered. Kudos to everyone at this particular Ruth's Chris for making our evening a special, romantic, wonderful evening that we will remember always. Thank you for making our experience memorable and delicious. We'll definitely be back on our next visit from the SF Bay Area!"

  • "Our dinner Saturday night was absolutely fantastic, as usual. Blake is the server we ask for every time, and he is, without a doubt, the best server ever. The rib eye was fantastic, as was the Cesar salad, garlic green beans, baked potato and everything else. We absolutely love this restaurant and now that we split a dinner, we can dine more often. A true gem in downtown San Diego!"

  • "We have enjoyed eating at different Ruths Chris Steak Houses for a number of years and have found them to usually be really nice spots with very reliable high quality steaks and service. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the San Diego Ruth's Chris, we ordered two petite fillets medium rare, both were overcooked when delivered, dried out, and just not as flavorable as we would have expected. The service was great (very good job by Ben!) the dessert was very good, the ambiance was ok, personally I'd say that the decor needs a refresh, looked kind of tired. For the expense of the restaurant it should deliver a better experience."
