    After two tries on two different Steaks, they could not prepare it "Medium" as we had asked.They did charge us for taking up 1.5 hours of our evening AND spilling a full glass of water all over my lap! The cost was $80.00. That was for two small dinner salads, a half bottle of wine and two vegetable. The Manager was called to our table 3 times during our visit. I am still astounded they had the nerve to present me with an $80.00 Bill!!!

    The food and service this night was very good. I have been there a few times when it hasn't been as good. The entire table ordered the Ruth's Classic, which is a starter, entree, side and a dessert. Everyone seemed to like theirs, the scallops were very good and the Filet was very good. I still don't know why they serve their entrees on little tiny plates, but I guess it doesn't matter. Yes, there are better steak houses, in my opinion, but they are more expensive in most cases, and some cases not so much, but I will go back here again for sure.

    They do a great job celebrating birthdays! Personalized menu, greeting at the door, birthday confetti sprinkled on the table, fabulous complementary desert. Ruth Chris Steak House must be the place to celebrate birthdays, there were three other tables celebrating when we ate our dinner. Dinner was exactly what I have come to expect - the service was attentive, the salad, steak and side were all cooked to perfection. Just remember not to touch the sizzling plates. I mentioned the RCSH birthday special treatment to a couple of friends that love doing special things for their partners. We enjoyed our dinner and had a fun night!

    My wife and I first tried this Ruth's Chris for Valentines Day last year and were really surprised at the quality of the food and service on such a busy night. We went back for our 38th wedding anniversary last Saturday. Again outstanding service and food quality. I have eaten at several Ruth's Chris across the country and find this one to be exceptional!!!!!

    We have been to this Ruth's Chris on several occasions but had not been back for a while. With all the steakhouse options in the area, we had convinced ourselves that we likes other restaurants more. My husband has mentioned several times that he wanted to go back to RC so I made a reservation for his birthday, noting it on the reservation. While confirming the reservation they asked his name in order to personalize his dessert. Well, that was just the start. When we arrived they escorted us to a lively booth and quickly brought a birthday card handwritten by the staff and threw confetti in the table. Our menus were personalized with his name which was a big surprise. The food was outstanding and service impeccable. The personalized dessert topped off this lovely evening. We appreciated the attention to detail and will definitely choose Ruth's Chris over the others next time!

    Although the service was a bit slow due to a crowded early evening sitting, the food overall was very good. Caesar salad was excellent, the filet was prepared perfectly. However the lamb chops had to be sent back as they were ordered medium well and were served medium rare. Creamed spinach was excellent.

    I don't get how this restaurant gets ok ratings..The steak is nothing to get excited about, had a rib eye served on a small plate by itself on cafeteria like China--- not amazingly flavorful, thick or tender...the wedge salad; very mediocre at best, desert was ok. We spent in the neighborhood of 250 bucks for a mediocre meal. I had rib eye, she had a shrimp dish; we split the wedge and desert and each had a glass of wine.....There are other steakhouses that FAR surpass Ruth Chris--tried the Beverly Hills location a few years ago and was equally underwhelmed, won't try it again. They say it's Prime, so guess it is, but it tastes like your 'typical' thinner choice cut supermarket steak from cooked at home.

    We went to the Woodland Hills location for our anniversary. The wait staff was amazing. Very courteous and attentive. We were a little disappointed in my husbands steak. We are so used to getting amazing meat that he was surprised his rib steak was fatty and not cooked correctly. He ordered med to med well and it came very raw. Because it was our 41st anniversary we did not want to make a fuss. The staff did bring us a beautiful dessert. The evening over all was great.

    Our first time at the Woodland Hills location. We made a reservation for a birthday and they seated us off to one side. This was particularly helpful because it cut down the noise level. Both our waiter and the serving assistant were gems. They both knew the restaurant and the menu. This contributed immensely to the dining experience. You expect great food and superb beef, which we had in abundance, but the wait staff really made the evening.

    My wife and I selected Ruth's Chris for our 6th anniversary celebration, and we were not disappointed. I had the 11 oz. filet and my wife had the bone-in filet. Mine was a little over-cooked, but I told them to do it so shame on me. Our server was wonderful! My wife can be a little choosy with her wine selection, but he just rolled with it. Great evening out!

The appetizers, steak, sides, and desserts for the 6 of us were all great, the semi private table perfect, and the Ashley and the rest of the staff made us feel welcome and handled our needs. We will return soon for another excellent meal.

    We went for our Anniversary and it was a great experience. We asked for a booth and they gave us a booth. They knew it was for our anniversary so when we sat down the waiter came and sprinkled happy anniversary and heart confeiti on our table to make it more special. The food was fantastik and the appetisers were a hit. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the barbeque schrimp. then we both had the sizzling filet. the creamed spinach and the scalloped potatoes were enough to share. we even took left overs home. A fantastik evening.

    Came here for our wedding anniversary. Wasn't too pleased with where they sat us (near the entrance and next to the walkway) since we noted our anniversary when making the reservation. But other than that, all was fabulous. The food was delicious, as always. The BBQ shrimp appetizer is a must have. The sauce is amazing and great with the bread. We ordered rib eye steaks and mushrooms and green beans for sides. The green beans were just ok. Ruth's is never disappointing and we will definitely come back!
