  • Pricey but good experience
    Sammy
    Dined on 6/28/2014
    They had pretty good food and great service. Just quite pricey. I got a steak and shrimp entree that came with 2 4 oz steaks and 6 pieces of shrimp.. this was $48 and came with 0 sides. We ordered a plate of mashed potatoes for $11, which was plenty for 3-4 people. This place is more for a special occasion. We also got a dessert for a birthday we were celebrating and they charged us for it, which I was disappointed with. So for 2 steak dinners with shrimp, 2 chicken dinners,2 plates of mashed potatoes, a calamari appetizer, a chocolate dessert, and 1 soda our bill was $244. After tip we paid over $300. I would go again, but only for a special occasion.

  • Ruth Chris dosent Speak Spanish

    Dined on 4/25/2014
    I have eaten here in the past and it has always been up to most of Ruth Chris standards, but tonight Ruth Chris wasn't speaking Spanish. Greeted, Seated and service all up to Ruth's Standards, after receiving my appetizers and settling in for what I hoped to be a great meal the sever arrived with my entrée, he even look confused as my oysters Rockefeller were still steaming hot, he politely set the sizzling Hot rib eye down warned my of the hot plate and waked away, of course by the time I cut into the rib eye it was luke-warm, the steak was vastly under seasoned, tough and had the hint of I was in the freezer earlier today, my side of Potatoes au Gratin were undercooked. Service Good food Not so much - Ruth would be vastly disappointed.

    Familyof5
    Dined on 2/24/2014
    My family of five, including two children, had a very nice meal at the Ruth’s Chris in the Intercontinental Hotel in Isla Verde, San Juan, Puerto Rico. My only complaint is the steak of one of our party was undercooked. When sent back it was simply put back under the broiler. The result was one of the two pieces was now very overcooked. At the prices charged, I think they should have cooked a new steak to the doneness asked for when ordered.

My husband said that the salmon was some of the best he had ever tasted. The food came out hot on hot plates. I would definitely go back on a return trip to Puerto Rico!

  • Doesn't meet Ruth's Chris Standards
    LVAA
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    This Ruth’s Chris location did not live up to the standards of all the other US locations. Our service was lacking, the lobster in the bisque and in the mac and cheese was overcooked and the taste was off, the salad had a hair in it, the filet mignon was not cooked as ordered and plating was sloppy. As our plates and breadcrumbs piled up on our table we had to ask for them to be removed. After spending $100+ we left and I had not eaten.

    Think the restaurant is to big for the service level. Go to all upscale steak houses, so we feel we know what we should expect--this was average-typical. We drove from Rio Mar area -- so expected better. Best part about Ruth Chris was location. Intercontinental and El San Juan hotel very upscale. Travel to PR 3-4 f times a year on business or pleasure will look for other steak house next time.

    Dined on 8/25/2013
    Compared with other restaurants in the San Juan area, Ruth's Chris was a solid performer. However, if you expect the same level of service typically experienced by this reviewer at other Ruth's Chris locations, you'll be disappointed. Don't get me wrong; the staff was pleasant and polite; but lacking that little extra "zing" of other restaurants in the group. For example, I selected a specific wine from the extensive list, but the waiter brought a different vintage; one known for being lower-grade than listed in the menu. A quick change to a different wine resolved that. The food was spot-on to the standard experienced at all other Ruth's Chris locations I've eaten at, which is to say it was outstanding.

    My family and I were on vacation in Isla Verde for a week. Ruth's Chris was connected to our hotel which made getting there really easy. I am normally not a real big eater (not dieting just dont eat a lot). However, the meal that I had was excellent and I ate it all! I hardly ever leave a restaurant without a to-go box/bag. I had the Chef's dinner with 4 courses. My steak was cooked to perfection and brought out really fast. My husband and sons all had steaks that they absolutely loved. From the bottle of wine to the desserts everything was fantastic and very comprable to the Ruth's Chris in our home state.
