    We booked a late reservation but arrived earlier , they were able to accommodate us promptly .we were seated in a comfortable booth . I ordered a margarita while we waited for our meal and it was good although they could use better tequila . The appetizer we ordered was the tuna poke it was fantastic ,the main course consisted of rib eye , lamb cops , asparagus accompanied with hollandaise and the sweet potato casserole . We finished our meal with ice cream sundae . I would recommend Ruth Chris always.

    Went to Ruth's Chris to celebrate a friend's birthday last night. Over the years that I've been been to Ruth's Chris, I've always ordered the same thing and decided to try something different last night - Sweet Potato Casserole. We were all impressed! The pecan crust on top of the casserole was just perfect, excellent texture and slightly crunchy. My usual Ribeye steak was cooked to exactly how I liked it, medium rare with the right amount of fat to add to the flavor to the meat. The server Tylor was really funny and attentive and it was really nice that he presented our friend a special dish for her birthday. We will be back again! :)

    My Wife & I booked this Restuarant to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, we were not disappointed. The food & service was fantastic & they had scattered red rose petals on our table to recognize our anniversary. They also presented us with a special desert after the main course which was a beautiful gesture & the icing on the cake.

    Feel the meal we got while good was way out of line in terms of pricing, dessert was so dry we could not stomach it. Steaks were swimming in butter, by the way not everybody likes a pound of butter in their steaks. For the price I feel I should of left feeling full and satisfied when in fact I did not.

    My favorite steak house for all the right reasons. The management/servers love their jobs and it shows. Ruth Chris Waikiki take care of the customers from the hostess to the servers to the bussers, which makes the entire dining experience memorable. Of course everything on the menu is delicious; starting with oysters Rockefeller to the rib-eye, lamb chops and all of the delicious sides. The new jalapeno mac and cheese is a new addition to our standard fare - delicious!

    As locals we don't eat in Waikiki often and are usually downstairs at the Yardhouse but we would journey again just for Ruth Chris. Parking is easy and validated at the Embassy Suites valet stand, if you have time you can grab a great draught at the Yardhouse, then head up the escalators to Ruth Chris. We dined inside because we wanted a/c, but were given a choice. Outside is better for people watching on Lewers and the Beach Walk Had the filet and the ribeye with the blue cheese crust, a side of potato au gratin, and for starters the Oysters Rockefellar which came flamed with 151 and the Osso bucco ravioli which was wonderful. Service was terrific, he didn't rush us, we will come again.

    Pat was an excellent server. She was warm, confident and self assured (in a good way) - we knew she was a seasoned, experienced server. She has a great rapport with people. She was attentive without hovering. Got down to our child's eye level to explain the menu to him and ask him questions. Prime Time prix-fix menu between 5-6pm is wonderful. David is the perfect manager. He is warm, friendly and very helpful. All the staff that came to our table were also the same - warm and friendly. We really enjoyed the music played that night - mix of genres, decades, artists, etc. Would love to have that play list! We'll definitely be back!

    I was a little disappointed since I've booked the table from Hong Kong ahead of time, but they have provided a table just next to the kitchen. I brought 3 kids with me and I specifically requested a high chair for my 3 years daughter. The problem with the table next to the kitchen was server were holding up their ovals in and out above our kid's head. I was kinda worried since you can never foresee accident. Other than that, everything were perfect especially our server was very nice to us.

    Was recommended Ruth's Chris from some friends. Travelling from Australia I made the booking online about a month out. Service was great by our server Matt. We both ordered the Filets, which were cooked to perfection, probably the best cut of meat I have ever consumed, could cut through with a butter knife (I did) both were cooked medium rare plus. Will definitely recommend to anyone who is after a fine place for steak.

It was a candle light setting, the food was delicious and a large selection of wines. This has become my favorite place to eat steak and wine.

    Ruth's Chris is simply a great steakhouse. In a day and age where food has become fancy and presentation has overcome the meal, Ruth's Chris keeps things very basic. Yes, this is an elegant restaurant, and the service is such that it qualifies as fine dining, but in the end, Ruth's Chris reminds you that it is all about the steak. I had the boneless ribeye, and my wife had the filet mignon. Both were cooked to the appropriate doneness, and both were fine cuts of beef. Very flavorful, and very enjoyable. My daughter was wide-eyed at the flavor of her meal, causing her to announce that she is "breaking up with Outback." Yes, they use a lot of butter on their steak, and no you can't eat like this every day, but it is and was a winner.

    Oure server, Lissa was very experienced and did a great job. They have a pretty good selection of wines by the glass and Lissa made some suggestions, which was nice. Appetizers came out promptly and were excellent. However, my Cowboy Ribeye was ordered Medium Rare and came to the table at Medium Well to Well Done. I hesitated but decided to let them know and had it sent back. It was a wait for them to redo the steak, which was to be expected, but the replacement came extra rare. I ate a little of it and took the rest home. It was disappointing that a place known for it's steaks could not do the preparation right. To be fair, in all our past experiences the steaks were done excellently to order. Not sure if we'll be going back.

    Not your 'standard' Ruth's Chris by any measure. Although part of the chain, this particular location sets a standard for food prep and food quality that separates itself from the pack. Having had the opportunity to visit some of the more famous steakhouses from around the country, and having had mediocre experiences in other Ruth's Chris restaurants before, to say this is one is clearly one of the best steaks from anywhere is difficult to believe. The restaurant itself is relatively small and tends to be pretty loud so it's not necessarily an intimate setting. The wait staff, and in particular the boys at the bar (JT and Russell) are well trained and extremely attentive. It will cost you, but it is worth it!
