Ruth's Chris Steak House - San Francisco
The Best Meal ever!Service is top notch here....the staff were very attentive. The meal was scrumptious.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect EveningFood, friendly efficient service, valet parking it's tough to get better then this!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat steakMy steak has been cooked perfectly everytime I go which is difficult for medium well. Great tasting food.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dessert for the dine aboutThe dessert for the dine about town,,, was not very good at all... such a disappointment..6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOpentable uuserThis is the first time eating at a Ruth Chris. Our party ordered the shrimp,petite fillet, and the 12 ounce ribeye off the prefixed menu. We all agreed the food was delicious. I have never eaten a steak with butter, but I'm a believer. The service was good, not great. The atmoshere was ok. My table was very dark and I needed my flashlight to read the menu. Overall, i enjoyed the experience, but I don't think I want to spend that much on a meal.
We also had lunch at scoma's on fisherman's wharf. I felt I had a better value here. if you are looking for a great waiter, ask for Chris !!!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the best steak!After trying several other steak houses in the past few months we landed back at Ruth's Chris on a typical cool, foggy summer evening. Always warm and busy it felt like coming home. With beef prices so expensive you don't want to waste your time and money in some place with tasteless boring meat. Ruth's steak comes to the table sizzling hot and melts in your mouth. The sides are all delicious and the desserts good, if a bit on the "hearty" side. The special dessert, key lime pie, was enough for three people! The food is consistently good, the service professional and the atmosphere friendly and warm. If you don't want to be disappointed with your steak in San Francisco I strongly recommend Ruth's...6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood steak dinnerWe did the June Dine experience.....great food, just the right amount, and delicious!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was wonderful andThe food was wonderful and the service was very good. The food was prepared exactly as requested and arrived in a timely manner. All in all it was a great experience.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went there to celebrateWe went there to celebrate a special occasion and despite putting that note in the comments section, nobody ever mentioned it. This is also after we were late (called in to say why) because we were rear ended on the Bay Bridge! The food as always is very good here but I find that the atmosphere is warmer and friendlier at the Walnut Creek location.
We also had to ask for the Dine About Town menu.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceOur waiter Andrew offered great service and was very Knowledgable and patient. Everyone was friendly and they offered great service!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was stellar andThe service was stellar and there is nothing better than Ruth's Chris steaks. For our taste, the asparagus was a bit overcooked, but we understand that we like them a bit crunchier than most folks. It was a perfect place to celebrate our combined birthday and wedding anniversary.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMay 29, 2013 VisitI've always enjoyed the food at this restaurant and it still is a good favorite to come to.
The staff was very courteous and we enjoyed our table.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodCome for the steak. The ribeye was awesome and perfectly cooked. The creamed spinach was also amazing. The Ruth's Classic (a set menu) was very good value. The place is a "classic" steakhouse, meaning it is not at all hip and can seem a bit dated -- but I was very happy with the experience thanks to the food.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful meal.

Second time there.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent. StaffService was excellent. Staff was able to change appointment without problems. Thank you.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur every request was granted.We came to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday with some friends and we come every year for his birthday. Even though we had made reservations, they sat us at a table directly in front of the kitchen. That did not make me happy and I asked that we be moved. They moved to a better table, a booth. Our waiter, Josh was fantastic. He totally took care of us. My friend's cocktail was too sweet and he re-made it. I ordered my filet medium rare and when it came out medium and I sent it back, boom - I got a new filet, cooked perfectly, in I swear, 5 minutes. We had a fantastic time! Josh would come check on us, make us laugh and he offered to surprise us by picking out dessert. He scored!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably one of my best visitsProbably one of my best visits to Ruth's Chris. Our server Nicholas was wonderful, came by the table at just the right times, very friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and treated us as if we were the only couple in the restaurant. 2 thumbs up!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak and services is alwaysSteak and services is always good!

Best one so far we had in San Francisco. They served their steaks sizzling hot which we love! So moist and tasteful. The side cream of spinach is yummy as well as their desserts! We're definitely going back :)4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentAsk for Megan, very personable, very knowledgeable and all around attentive service. Thanks for helping make our night!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA very pleasant surprise!It had been over 10 years since my last visit to Ruth's Chris. Since then, I have eaten at the other steak houses on and around Van Ness Street multiple times. No longer!
Our recent experience at Ruth Chris was amazing. Excellent cuts of beef done to perfection, very generous side dishes, rich decor and outstandingly friendly efficient service. Three of the four in the party ordered our cuts prepared "black and blue." My ribeye was crunchy on the outside and cold on the inside. As were the others. The medium rare filet was just that - pink but not red. Amazingly well done all around!
I'll be back!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnd the band played on ...There were three of us for dinner, one had no previous experience with Ruth's Chris. What a treat for her!! I had a gorgeous glass of Merlot, that turned into two. Yumm-0. We ordered a salad-free dinner anticipating the delights to come. We had green beans, creamed spinich, sauteed mushroom and the onion rings, joined by two petite filets and lamb chops. The onion rings were the only miss of the evening. Did not exactly meet description of menu or waiter. Everything else was superb! We completed dinned with one creme brulee and an order of berries with creme fraisch in lieu of birthday cake. Everything was perfect! Costly, so not for everyone.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMT-bone steak and shrimp are good!I enjoyed dinner with my friends. The barbecued shrimps were very good! However I shared a T-bone steak with two friends, I had enough.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bar was a bit of a disappointmeThe bar was a bit of a disappointment. It was really quiet and the bartender (Jose) was busy talking with what seemed to be a local, regular patron. I had to wait until they finished their conversation before I could order a drink.
Our server (Courtney) was on it. Very friendly, informative and attentive.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you're in the mood forIf you're in the mood for a great steak then this is the place! Ruth's Chris has never disappointed us. We've gone there for birthdays, anniversaries and just when we want a delicious filet mignon cooked to perfection. Very attentive service - warm and friendly. Don't let the fact that this is part of national chain dissuade you. The staff pays attention to every detail and the food is superb!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding as always! EveryOutstanding as always! Every Ruth's Chris that I have bee nto around the US is consistent ... wonderful food and service! A great palce for a special occasion.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as usual. The staffExcellent as usual. The staff really made us feel like we were special and went above and beyond.The service was beyond fantastic.
Jonathan, our waiter, was knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu including the wine menu. The filet is the best in the city and cooked to perfection.
I do recommend this restaurant to all my coworkers and friends!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Absolute Best Filet AnywhereIf you are hankering for the best filet mignon, cooked perfectly to order, mouth-watering and sizzling, no matter where you are, you can't go wrong with Ruth's. My husband and I have found that these restaurants know their beef and consistently serve up the best steaks, with the very best service--not intrusive, but always available. Side dishes are wonderful, too. The ahi tuna appetizer at this location also was superb....never had better ahi anywhere!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe overall experience wasThe overall experience was very good. A slight dessert mishap made it a 4 star review. It really should have been stars. The food here is really excellent. Everything was delicious. The dessert was just ok. We each had a dessert and they only brought 3 portions (we had 4 people). We waited a good 10 minutes before our server came back and took note of that. Yet there were plenty of servers that passed us by and failed to even ask if we needed anything.
The complete meals are totally worth it! Salad entree side and dessert! Steak is cooked to perfection! No kidding about that! Love this place!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the hot plate, foodLoved the hot plate, food was warm. Service was great.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a fabulous restaurantIt was a fabulous restaurant with great food. It was our first time at this restaurant, and the experience was great. It is pricey, but would return for a special occasion only. It was our anniversary, and wouldn't complain about the price for that reason. The only complaint I had was even though we had reservations we still waited about 30 minutes to be seated. The staff was very friendly! Our waitress Megan was great!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur go-to restaurant!Thoroughly enjoyed our meal - took another couple who hadn't been here before. The only reason we didn't give the service 5 stars was that our waiter forgot our appetizer order, then didn't refill the bread tray. However, we mentioned all of this to the manager and he discounted our bill, which was much appreciated. Food was fabulous, as usual, the rest of the service was great, and their wine list seemed to be carefully chosen. We've never gone wrong ordering a bottle we're not familiar with. All around a great experience!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
