Diner Reviews
  • "As expected, the steaks were superb and appropriately cooked as ordered. The Gumbo was good but not as good as the Lobster Bisque. The service was particularly noteworthy - attentive without being obtrusive. Overall, met my very high expectations for this venue. Only suggestion would be can you too get the Bone-in Filet I once ate at the Washington DC Ruth's Chris?"

  • "This was our first visit to a Ruth's Chris and we will definitely go to one again. We were in Honolulu for vacation at the Hilton Hokulani, in the same building as RC so we decided to end our vacation there and celebrate all at once the 37th anniversary of our 1st date, our 34th wedding anniversary and our 56th birthdays all in the next 3 months. Marc our waiter was exceptional, the food was awesome and the atmosphere was great. thanks and we will be back again, probably to the ones in the Metro DC area where we live. We have not gone to one around us however due to the traffic so we may have to brave it! "

  • "The steaks are a to die for! Succulent and decadent, doused with hot butter. Oh my! What a delight! The ribeye early bird special from 5-6pm is a must. Skip the calamari appetizer, $19. It was a bit salty and disappointing. The Caesar salad and sides were good (garlic mash & white rice). Overall, a recommend!"

  • "Our steaks were perfectly cooked and the sides were delicious. So happy they had Australian Shiraz. The service was friendly and personable."

  • "I eat here once a month, and I am never unimpressed. Everything from the reception to the check is done with precision and is always a memorable experience. I always request Ezekiel as my waiter and he impressed me as usual. Overall, I would wager that there is not a better reun restaurant or one that serves better food."

  • "From the moment we arrived to the time we left the customer service of every staff person we encountered whether directly or in passing by was outstanding. Courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, willing to offer suggestions. The service on top of the food choices provided, prepared and tasted made our night."

  • "I first saw this place about six years ago, different location, but same place. Fi east time I tried to go, the place was already packed, wait time for walk in, about an hour and a half. Decided to go downstairs. .. this year, I made reservations. I showed up and out take was ready. .. so straight to the table. The good was definitely worth the wait, not the last bit disappointing at all. I made it to the pointof having a food coma, but kept on reating because the food was too delicious."

  • "Relatively expensive. Food was excellent. Strong and tasty cocktails. Nice selection of wines. A bit noisy when it gets busy. Service was very attentive."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Food was very good and our server (thank you Hui!) was OUTSTANDING but the ambiance was not enjoyable for us. The tables are crowded close together and in the area which we were seated, the tables had very high chairs on one side of the table and on the other banquette seating that required taking 2 steps up before sitting. This was awkward and dangerous for the older diners in our party. Our table was next to the section of the bar where servers pick up drink orders so it got very loud and difficult to have a conversation as well as congested and over crowded with the constant rotation of servers. Ruth's Chris is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants however we will stick to the Restaurant Row location."

  • "My dad really wanted to go to a Ruth's Chris since he heard it on Sean Hannity, so he was really excited that we were able to go. Everyone loved their food and our service was excellent. I enjoyed this location and it was great that it was in walking distance to our hotel. Since it was also my mom's birthday, they had a really nice treat for her. I would go back again if in Waikiki."

  • "We visited on Feb 19 and service was the best; could not have been better by all staff. Went back on Feb 23, our last night in Honolulu and the service was extremely poor. Manager walked by our table a dozen times and not once stopped to check in on us, but did at other tables. None of the wait staff engaged us in conversation as was done on our first visit. Felt more like a fast food restaurant. The two visits could not have been different and we will certainly let folks know of the spotty service."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "This is by far the location to visit. If you're in Waikiki and love steak, then this location of Ruth's Chris is simply a must go to! Ask for Ezekiel as your waiter, awesome service, extraordinary food, and perfect to celebrate with that special someone!"

  • "We went there to celebrate our Valentine's Day. We arrived 1/2 hr earlier from our reservation time, they sat us to our table without any hesitation. I even requested for a booth which they honored. At the table there were red rose petals there which I thought gave it a nice touch. We had the early bird specials: soup or salad, an entree and a dessert. It was very tasty, hot and filling. Even though our special had a dessert item they honored the occasion by given us their strawberry dessert. Our waiter was very pleasant. He made suggestion on the menu and he even offered to wrap up our dessert to go for us. We always return to Ruth Chris Waikiki for all our occasions and they really make us feel special."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "A perfect Valentine's weekend dinner and the restaurant was kind enough to provide us with a very nice booth at our request (made in the notes of my open table reservation)food is always of high quality and the service made the whole experience a pleasure."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "We go here annually to celebrate either a birthday or valentines day usually and we are never disappointed! The service, environment and food are all top notch and I would definitely recommend it for any couple looking for a nice evening out!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We ordered the Valentines Day special steak and lobster and the T-bone steak with mashed potatoes and asparagus, one of the best steaks ever and even the asparagus was cooked perfect. The service is probably the best we ever had here in Hawaii."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Celebrated a birthday for my girlfriend & I cannot say enough on how well Ezekiel and his support service staff took such care with our table of 4. The food portions were split for us so we could try multiple dishes, and the food runners graciously took the time to take our group photo even though the restaurant was quite busy. Congrats to manager David Kimura for mentoring such a customer service focused team."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The Waikiki Ruth's Chris is super busy & we were seated about 15 minutes after our reservation. The food was really good. The servers seemed pretty busy so maybe that contributed to the delay in drinks & bringing of the check. Overall it was an excellent dinner with a few minor hiccups."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The steak and lamb chops were excellent, but our service was very slow. We were given menus as soon as we sat down, but we didn't get our water for at least another 10 minutes, and overall we had very slow service in between. We waited a long time just for our server to get our food boxed up, to bring us the dessert menu, to bring us the check, and to cash us out. There was a couple seated next to us who came in after we did and left around the same time we did, and they both ordered steak entrees as well! Granted our server was very nice and polite, but overall it was rather disappointing for our first time here and as our pre-Valentine's night out."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Very good steak, consistent with what you expect from a good steakhouse. Just below Wolfgang and Morton's in my opinion."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "As a frequent visitor, I am pleased to report that the food quality and service level, in particular from Jay and Russell at the bar, have not changed. Also, and unfortunately, I can also say the same for the inexperienced hostessing team who give you the impression you're merely an obstacle in their life. On this occasion we had an opportunity to interact with the manager as related to the aforementioned poor performance by the hostesses. Unfortunately he falls into the column along with the hostesses. The Food continues to be their saving grace. The hostesses shortcomings combined with the managers obvious disregard for the overall customer experience are in the way, but do not ruin the excellent food. The bar is the best option."

  • "We had an outstanding server on our visit to this restaurnt. Tyson was the best. He was very personable and efficient. He made the evening. Our food was very good, too. We did not get the earlybird special eventhough we were seated in time. Tyson seemed to anticipate the dishes we would like even before we ordered. He talked with us enough to be able to do that. He was very experience. The Flaming Oysters Rockefeller were great so were our steaks. Cooked perfectly. The wine list could be improved but still had a great selection. Worth a visit and be sure to request Tyson."

  • "I dine at Ruth's maybe every other months and so far every dinner I've had here has been to quality food and service. The food always comes out hot. Russell the bartender is always happy and serves any drink you ask. Other Ruth Chris restaurants I have tried don't compare to the one in Waikiki Thanks for another memorable night. We came from Japan, California and Hawaii Aloha"

  • "I am in Waikiki once or twice a year on vacation and I always make a point to stop by for dinner at this location. The experience here is second to none. So impressed when Marc, one of the fine servers, stopped by my table tonight to say "welcome back". He remembered seeing us in the restaurant before - in fact he was our server last May when we were here - 8 months ago. What an impressive memory and special service touch. The food was exceptional as well. The steak was absolutely perfect. The sides just as perfect. The dessert selection is fantastic as well (the Chocolate Sin Cake is worth a special trip all on its own). Ruth's Chris is always superb - but this location in Waikiki is at the top of the list."

  • "Even though it took 3 days to get a dinner reservation at a good hour, it was worth the wait indeed! Fantastic food! Great Service! Wonderful neighborhood, the Waikiki Beachwalk. We love the outdoors so requested an outdoor table. We were invited indoors when it started to rain but stayed outdoors anyway. Our waiter was excellent and the experience the best of our trip."
