We enjoyed our special dinner as we celebrated our son & daughter in law’s 7th anniversary. It was their first time and it was perfect. Our waitress was awesome and the food was delicious.

I have eaten at Ruths' Chris Steakhouses in NYC, Palm Desert, Phoenix, The Big Island. Never have I had a badly cooked steak until the Kauai dinner. There were only 4 tables of diners at 6:15 pm. The service was flawless and outstanding. The ambience was that of a cafeteria. Lights on full (need dimmer switches) and my medium filet came back almost raw. I told my server who whisked the steak back to the kitchen only to have my sides on the plate removed, my dining spouse finishing their steak while I waited for mine to return sans sides. Ruined the entire evening. At almost $200.00 I was shocked. How can the chef miss "medium" when the restaurant appeared to be empty? Sad.

Ruth Chris is our favorite restaurant. We consistently have excellent food and service. The steak is the best we’ve had and we are from Montana so we’ve had good steak. Sweet potato casserole is wonderful and could be a dessert. In fact our waiter said that he has eaten it with ice cream which sounds amazing! It’s not a cheap place to eat, but worth the added expense. You will not be disappointed. Thanks for a very special evening.

My wife and I were vacationing in Kauai and found Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse here. It was a late (by 3 months) celebration of our silver anniversary. We had never eaten at a Ruth’s Chris before and we weren’t disappointed. The food was superb, along with the service. Due to the price, it will be an occasional indulgence, rather than a regular dining experience, but for that special occasion, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse is a great place to go to. We’ll certainly be back to try one closer to home, hope the quality is as good in the SF Bay Area as it was in Kauai!

Though done to perfection, my filet mignon had a sizable chunk of fat. Definitely a nice restaurant but I did not feel the food was the quality I’ve experienced at other Chris locations. Still, worth checking out.

Belated anniversary
Started with oysters Rockefeller flambe. Awesome presentation!
We had surf and turf / lobster trail and filet. All excellent!
We brought our own 2008 silver oak can which went perfectly with the steak. What a wonderful dinner. The server was so nice, excellent job.

We love Ruth’s Chris! Unfortunately my husbands steak was not prepared as ordered. Our waiter gracefully ordered another and the second one was not any better. My meal was perfect. Not sure how 2 meals ordered the same way can turn out so different! We’ll try again another time and hope for the best!

Great steak. Serve hot and delicious. Creamed spinach and broccoli to enhance the meal. Our starter was a chop salad and a wedge. The wedge is a meal on its own. Great dinner and fabulous service.

We know Clifton from a previous restaurant and were thrilled to have him as our server! He was super attentive but also gave us enough space to enjoy our anniversary dinner. We don’t get our alone much so the champagne and Strawberry Flambé was a nice touch!

Because of a large seating our meal was second rate. The filet was over cooked, asked for medium rare, came medium, plus. Kevin was preoccupied. It was our 33rd wedding anniversary and it was, so so.

The food was delicious and fresh. We went early and all had the early bird special, which included a salad , the larger size filet, a side, and dessert. The price point was in the $60 range. Everyone in my family of four (including and especially my 19 year old and my 12 year old,) loved it! Our server Clifton, was excellent and on point. He was very attentive and made sure that our glasses were always filled and that we had everything we needed, he was helpful with suggestions not only on the menu but on tips to navigate Kauai. Clifton really helped to make the experience great!
