  • "The staff is always very friendly & professional. Mike (manager) & Steve (waiter) are the best! They play a big role inbwhy we choose to dine often at the Wailea store"

  • "After hearing about Ruth Chris for so many years, we have finally gone. Why I have waited I do not know. My wife and I consider ourselves foodies and have dined all over the world.. why have we missed this place..was it because it was a chain?? I don't know, burt I have to say we were delightfully surprised. The food was outstanding. If one is ever going to have a steak in the world - here is the place. I thought we had found the ultimate steak place in a restaurant outside of Siena, Italy.. but RC- topped it. We will be back."

  • "We stopped in at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Wailea and had another great dinner. The steaks are pretty amazing and if you have not tried the fine dining here - it is really and must. Starting with the starter bread & butter in combination with the dinners are served on 500F plates - it is always a special outing here. You can get you Costco "Ruth's Chris" gift certificates and save 20% - that is always a "plus" because this is not the most economical establishment to dine at - especially for larger families."

  • "Although the food was very good the 3+ hours it took to eat dinner was an ordeal I would never want to repeat. Extremely poor service. I've eaten here in the past and had both great food and great service but this experience was so bad I will never go back to his restaurant."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We have been to many RC restaurants all over the country and this one is just not up to the level we expected. I assume that being in a high tourist area allows them to slack a bit on both quality and service (which we find the same with most Maui restaurants). The layout of the seating does not allow for much privacy, the lighting is too high, and very few seats with views (which would be spectacular if they could be seen). We are vineyard owners and always bring our personal supply, so be aware that this RC does not allow outside bottles (their policy), where most Hawaii restaurants do have a corkage fee. Sorry, won't be back to this one, but will be at our favorite in Palm Desert next month."

  • "The steaks were totally tasteless. I had a rib eye and my husband had a filet. Not good and I definitely would not return. I have had better steaks at fast food for a whole lot les money."

  • "The food was amazing, but the service was impeccable!"

  • "We really enjoyed the ambiance and service of Ruth Chris Restaurant. Our waiter was excellent and described the menu, cooking methods and yes, how much salt we wanted as seasoning. That is a first for us. Our Shrimp Cocktail was delectable, the sauce spicy as we like it. My husband chose the lamb entree and I had a petit filet. Both pieces of meat were tender and delicious. I do think that the plates are far too hot. This allows the meat to continue cooking and therefore ours was a bit more "done" than we would have liked. I am not a fan of butterflying the beef. Next time. I will ask for grilled whole. The sides can be shared by two. We had a delicious chocolate duo dessert and espresso coffee. The wine menu is extensive. Pricy but good."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Ruth Chris. The experience was amazing and the food was excellent. There was in issue with my steak that was immediately resolved. The staff provided a wonderful dining experience from the start to the finish. We will be coming back our next time in Maui."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We dine at Ruth's Chris every time we come to Maui for my husband's birthday. We enjoy the steaks and they have an excellent wine list. We had the petit filet with the lobster combo, which was cooked to perfection! We had the sweet corn, broiled tomatoes and asparagus for sides. We started with the tomato & mozzarella salad, which was rather large, even to share. We had a lovely bottle of the Turley Rattlesnake with our meal. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "I'VE EATEN MANY TIMES AT THIS STEAK CHAIN. THE WAILEA LOCATION HAS SEEN A NOTICEABLE SLIPPAGE IN THE QUALITY OF THE MEAT. RUTH'S IS ABOUT MEAT. THIS LAST TIME THE MEAT WAS NOT COOKED PROPERLY FOR EITHER OF US. MY FILET TASTED A LITTLE LIKE LIVER. NOT PROPERLY AGED, OR COOKED IN BLOOD. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS LOCATION IF YOU LIKE THE REAL RUTH'S CHRIS EXPERIENCE."

  • "While part of large publicly traded company this restaurant franchise operation is superb. From the minute you enter the restaurant you are catered to in every way. I have been back now several times three years running and it is the same every time. Etiquette and attentiveness is top shelf - very professional. Phenominal food with impeccable service. It doesn't get any better!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Food was good, service was OK, of course the prices were out of sight considering it is Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Our only disappointment was how "tired" the inside seemed. Sometimes things need to be deep cleaned and refreshed. When we were taken to our table, my chair had something sticky and yellow on the seat. I did not want to sit in it and just exchanged with one of our extra empty chairs. The young hostess thought that was strange and made a lame excuse when I pointed out the spot on the chair. Overall, just not conducive to encouraging me to take my wife again and drop a couple hundred dollars on a meal."

  • "Great opportunity to get some red meat after eating seafood all week in Maui! Steak was delicious and the service was excellent. Location is perfect too so you can do a little shopping before or after your meal."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I made the reservation with the thought that I'd have a steak, but when I arrived I was hungry for seafood. Their make your own combo was a good value, and the mahi mahi was cooked to perfection. The waiter was attentive and personable."

  • "My family & I dined here to celebrate my husband's birthday. I specifically requested 'the best booth' & 'the best server' because it was a special birthday occasion. Disappointingly, the hostess DID NOT read my requests prior. We got seated at the far back while I prefer a front booth. Our server Jared was excellent but I feel when you're at the far back you get less service attention in general. The manager did not even stop by to check on us as we are accustomed. My husband was satisfied but I wasn't. As a consolation after my balking at the seating the hostess did say she noted our preference to our record for the future. He ordered the $105 porterhouse steak, I had the ribeye, no bone. Daughter enjoyed steak salad, all excellent."

  • "Had dinner Feb 9 at Ruth's Chris. Everyone was very polite and we were quickly seated. I ordered Calamari and a salad. I asked if I could be served just the rings rather than rings and tentacles. possible. When my plate arrived, it was just the rings, which was nice. Before I had finished, my salad arrived. My husband had ordered a salad and before he was finished, his pork chops arrived. We had wine, 2 glasses for me and one and an iced tea for my husband. $150. And 65 min later the experience was over. I think that at this price, and the reputation they are trying to project, the experience should have been a little less hectic and more leisurely paced. It was certainly acceptable food but way too speedy of a dining experience."

  • "Anywhere across the country, Ruth's Chris is top notch. Perfect setting and better food for an exceptional evening."

  • "Poor service from hostess and wait staff. Asked for water. Served my wife but took my glass. Long time waiting for cocktails. Long wait for appetizers. Mine was cold. BBQ shrimp. Cut one of four and tasted. Sent back. When returned, cut shrimp had been removed but not replaced. Long wait for entrees, tasty and cooked as ordered. We did not repeat on cocktails and not having wine this evening. Two in our party (ladies) shared 16 oz bone in filet by the waiters suggestion. It was not busy there. We felt as if we were not getting the service because we weren't a big tab table. Upon completion of the meal, 3 opted for no dessert. Fourth wanted but waiter left before she could ask. No manager or maitre'd. A ship without a skipper!"
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, but felt the Porter House ribeye was much tastier than the filet mignon. I felt the butter possibly browned too much on the 500 degree plates and gave it a less than pleasant flavor, although it was cooked to perfection! Our service was phenomenal and our wine was outstanding!"
    Dined on 1/22/2014
  • "A little disappointed with the taste of my rib eye."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "We had an outstanding dinner at Ruth's. The Martini Ahi was to die for. My husband had calamari and mahi-mahi, both of which were great. My son had the petit filet which was cooked to perfection. Our server, Jared, was extremely pleasant and helpful. We would definitely go back."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Meat dishes of variable quality (filet delicious, rib eye fatty) at breath taking prices. Side dishes just fair."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Great steakhouse. Service was superior, was greeted, given a selection of where we would like to sit, waiter was attentive but not overbearing. We had the ribeye, hate to say it, but a chain restaurant was the best meal we had. Worth ever penny!"
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "For $150 we got two steaks and one appetizer. My steak was the worst steak I've ever eaten, and at my age, that's a lot of steaks to compare it with. They slather it with some horrific butter just before they serve it and all you can taste are the chemicals in the butter and the gristle and fat, or that's all I got in my first six bites. We brought it home, and we couldn't even use it for stir fry the next night it was so grisly and fatty. For a $50 steak, that's inexcusable. We never need to return. This is perhaps the most overrated restaurant I've ever experienced and I've been around the world six times so I am not inexperienced."

  • "As usual, Ruth's Chris was great. Pricey, but worth it. Attentive service and tender steaks are a great combination."

  • "We just flew into town and wanted a great dinner on Thanksgiving. They offered a traditional thanksgiving dinner but we all chose a nice steak. The food was incredible. We had amazing service and had the special. If hit we were looking for."

  • "We always make a point of dining at Ruth's Chris every time we stay in Wailea because we know we will have a fabulous meal. This time, however, our experience was not up to their usual high standards. Our starter salads, (a Caesar and a Chop salad) were very good. Our mains were hit and miss ... The shoestring fries were cold hand were sent back to be replaced. My filet was perfect, my husband's tasted like liver! They were very busy, perhaps the kitchen was overwhelmed? In any case, it was a disappointing meal at one of our favourite places."

  • "what's not to love about a perfectly prepared petite filet and their wonderful creamed spinach. steve always provides top notch service to make for a great dinner in Wailea."

  • "This is not our first time here for dinner. Everything was delicious except we had request the shoestring potatoes to be crispy and they were not. It will not stop us from going back as in the past they have made them crispy."

  • "Celebrated our anniversary with a special dinner here... The staff was very welcoming and we were seated immediately. Very nice setting and our server Matt was very personable, attentive and helpful in navigating the menu. The food was outstanding as far as chain steakhouse fare goes. The filet was perfect, the ribeye a little fatty but tasty nonetheless. Appetizers, sides and drink service outstanding as well. However, we felt rushed to hurry up by a busboy who came by our table three times in less that 30 minutes asking if we were finished. So with half full plates we decided to surrender and asked to take the rest of our meal to go. Matt mentioned that this was the busboys first night but still... a mood killer for sure."

  • "One of the best meals we have ever had! The filet was so tender, it could be cut with just a fork!"
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "We did the 3 course fixed price menu, well prepared caesar salad that was dresses lightly as ordered, delicious steak. Added fries to our order, be sure to specify shoestring or regular. Great recommendation from our waiter regarding a wine selection. Added desserts which were worth the additional $5 up charge. The service was attentive and we were dining on a busy evening. I had notified the restaurant that we were celebrating an anniversary and were delighted to receive a lovely tray of fresh strawberries in a flaming sauce. Would definitely recommend this restaurant, good food and good service."

  • "My wife enjoyed the shrimp. Being a steak lover, I made the mistake of having the petite filet, not the "signature" filet I have had in the past."

  • "Food was well below standard for a Ruth's location. Filet was of poor quality."

  • "The waiters in this restaurant were did not communicate well. We arrived five minutes before our OpenTable appointment and still waited 10 minutes before being greeted and another 5 minutes more before before seating. The staff was not attentive and people at next table were shouting loudly using profanities. Neither management or the restaurant staff intervened. Where was management?. The steak tasted strange because we ordered ribeye although it tasted like sirloin. The Mac and cheese was not cooked i.e. the noodles were hard and cheese not melted fully nor onion fully cooked. I feel sorry into ok my wife there for dinner there and wish there was a Morton's on Maui."
