Diner Reviews
  • "I think they are used to intimate diners (i.e., couples) rather than a large group; however, they did a great job with only minor issues regarding food and service."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "From the moment we entered, we received excellent service. We were seated quickly, drink order taken, hot bread and butter served and our dinner order taken. Our Barry and Manny took very good care of us and made my birthday dinner enjoyable."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Ocean view, fantastic waitstaff (thanks Ben!) and a reliably strong steakhouse menu, with a myriad of creative touches. For our 30th anniversary of our first date, we couldn't have asked for more!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Since the minute we entered the door service was excellent. The food was beyond great so much so that i tried things i never would eat and it was delicious. Our waiter knew what to recommend and was very attentive. It was for our anniversary and by far the best one yet! Thank you .i"

  • "We ate at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse this past Saturday night. As usual, the food was fantastic. So was the service, atmosphere and everything else. Loved it! Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The staff is always cordial and attentive and the food was as good as ever. We dine here twice a month and are never disappointed."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Our experience was far less than perfect. We were celebrating our son's birthday. He ordered a filet mignon steak and it was served very RARE. It was so blue and so raw that you could almost see the blood. We sent it back, but it's never the same after it's nuked. I think that a restaurant of that caliber and the money that you are paying should be better. We have dined there in the past and it was very good."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I went to RC's for my anniversary. We had been to the one in Del Mar, that was also a great experience. I love steak and Ruth's has not disappointed me or my wife. We will definitely be return customers. Thanks Ruth's Chris."

  • "Great dinner, great service. Every thing was well cooked and the customer service from the hostesses to the waitress was excellent."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The food was outstanding from salads, tuna appetizer, to the steaks. Ah yes, the Chocolate Sin Cake with some red wine! Say thank you to my wife for getting the Sin Cake back on the menu and thank you to Ruth's Chris for bringing it back!"

  • "I have never been to a Ruth Chris and was not what I expected. It seemed more of a hot spot for locals, business people, and tourist. I went here for our anniversary and didn't feel relaxed, like how we have at other nice restaurants. Strange there was kids everywhere just didn't feel comfy, or like we where being taking care of. When I spend close to 300 for just my boyfriend and myself I would have liked to felt a little more important. The only thing that saved it for me was the steak, both of ours where amazing. Overall from going to higher end restaurants the service didn't match on what we where paying."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Dinner, as always, was amazing. Barely needed my knife to slie my filet. And, Ben was the best waiter I have ever had at ANY RuthChris. He made the evening relaxing, enjoyable and special. Kudos again!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "We went to celebrate a birthday and even though it was pricey everything was great! The view was beautiful and our server came by and checked on us fairly often. This place is great for special occasions and we will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Went here for Valentine's Day. Romantic setting as we sat at a window table and had the whole view of San Diego Bay. We both ordered filet from the Ruth's Chris classic menu. The best part was this included the whole meal from appetizer to dessert. Filets were tender and cooked perfectly. The sides were enough to share so I ordered the mashed potatoes and my husband ordered the green bean. Both were excellent. The steakhouse salad was a combination of various lettuce and field greens. Dressings were tasty. Last but not least, service was great. Matt was very attentive and made sure that all went well with our meal. Will go here again as it is one of our favorite places. If you are getting dessert, I recommend the cheesecake."

  • "Great steak as always, a little disappointed in service. Had requested a table near the window as it was our wedding anniversary but were escorted to a table in the back right next to the galley entrance. Asked hostess to relocate us to a better table which she did without argument. Tables were packed in and it seemed that they didn't have enough serve staff as service was not up to usual. A word about the baked potato, it might seem silly but a steak house should be able to prepare a good baked potato. We ordered a baked potato to split, the potato was small and overdone. For $9 at a steak house, I would have expected a nice sized properly prepared baked potato. Did it ruin our dinner? Of course not but we wouldn't order it again."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The server recommended the Lobster Mac and Cheese, and we were impressed!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I have been coming to Ruth Chris steakhouse for years they absolutely have the most delicious prime steaks anywhere. Cooked to perfection in their 1800° oven with that famous butter and herbs just can't be beat! That's why I keep coming back time after time."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The steak was so tender, you could almost cut it with a fork, very flavorful. One of the best tasting steak I aver had. Will definitely go back again."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My wife and I dined here for valentines day. Although we went on the 15th (recommended). We were seated at exactly the time of our reservation. Our server, Peter, did an outstanding job of taking care of us without being too intrusive. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was warm. Well worth the money."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I went here for valentines night, they were handing out roses to the ladies which I thought was sweet. They also were serving appetizers while we waited to be seated, which were really good. When we were seated we had a very great waitress who was very knowledgeable about the menu. I ordered a filet mignon butterflied and it was so flavorful, along with lobster tails which were also. Delicious and the lobster bisque was awesome. So overall it was great!!!!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This place never seems to stop impressing me. Hot flavor packed steaks, a great wine selection, terrific view and professional and prompt service. It's good. And Ive been there more than a few times, with the wife, with family, with wife and friends and just alone at the bar with a steak and a game to watch, any way you look at it, its a worth while dining location."
    Dined on 7/19/2013
  • "I have been a regular to Ruth Chris and my last visit was quite disappointing. The steak wasn't prepaid as i ordered it. Half of the steak was done correctly while the other have was over cooked. My partners steak was burnt and had a burnt taste to it. The flavors still were rich but the texture was not satisfying. In addition it was hard to get the attention of the server and didn't check up much on our table. I had to request her to be sent to us for service."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "My wife and I have been going to Ruth's Chris for the past 5 years and it never gets old or mundane. This is absolutely one of the best restaurants in the business. We will continue going here for years to come. If you want great food, wonderful ambience, wonderful staffs, and depending on which restaurant you go to, a beautiful view, Ruth's Chris is the place to go. They are expensive, but, hey you want the best you pay for it, and they definately are one of the best and the food and everything else you get is definately worth the price."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Food was very good, my petite filet was not the usual buttery tender as I'm used to. It had great flavor but was tough to cut."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Great food ... But a few minus points ...we arrived early before they were seating ... Asked if we could go to the bar for a drink while we waited .. Hostess said no .. The couple after us did not ask and just did it .. Tableware was dirty .. Other than that perfect ..."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Although the open table site still had the restaurant week ad on it, and when we got there the waitress said that was last week's menu, she still pointed out an affordable alternative with three courses. The meal was delicious and the sinful chocolate cake with berries was to die for."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Hello, We made reservations one month ago. I mentioned it was for my mom's bday and it was her first time at the restaurant. The table we got was super tight. The service was blah, and no one even mentioned my mom's bday. not impressed. the only good thing-the food."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "We were both pleased with the meal and the service once again."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Our waiter Conor was one of the absolute best waiters we have ever had. He knew how to pour wine and was extremely attentive, including whisking my steak away when he heard me mention it was a tad too done. He then reappeared in about 3 minutes with a perfectly cooked steak."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Outstanding steaks and friendly staff! I will definitely return."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We made our reservation online and requested a booth for our date night. We were seated in a corner by a plant next to the walkway, which resulted in everyone entering or exiting this section passed our two person table. My wife ordered a steak medium well, which arrived at our table extra crispy. I ordered a 3 pound lobster that was very chewy. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Signature Filet Mignon always outstanding. Ribeye perfectly cooked medium. Wines by the glass were reasonable and complemented the steaks well."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Filet was delectable -well seasoned and served on a piping hot plate. Meat must have been soaked in butter! Ahi was good, but not the best ever. Cheesecake was rich and decadent. Many wines to choose from and a nice nighttime view of the SD harbor."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "Ruth's Chris never disappoints. Consistently and absolutely the best tasting steaks we ever had. The service is top notch. My beverage never stayed empty for more than 2 minutes. Very attentive. We'll be back."

  • "I have always enjoyed this restaurant. The service and food are always great."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "I have tried other notable steak spots and always come back to Ruth's, simply the best flavor sets this gem apart."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "We keep getting gift cards to this overpriced, chain restaurant. The food is ok but not as good as some less expensive restaurants that serve the same food."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Went there during Restaurant Week for the first time. I could've cut the filey mignon with a butter knife! It was 2" thick and cooked to medium rare perfection! I ordered the blue cheese crust on it for the first, but certainly not a last time. SO DELICIOUS! Service was top-notch. For my budget it's pricey, so I doubt I'll go back before next Restaurant Week, but when it comes around again I'm there!"
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "We had 7:00 dinner reservations - waited 30 minutes before seated and then we were seated in a back room away from the rest of the ambience that is what makes Ruth's Chris such a great place to have a celebration. Will not be going back to this location anytime soon."
