    The food is always great. Service was way too slow. It wasn’t overly busy, just took forever to get anything. Maybe they are understaffed, but for $1,000 dinner, maybe they could afford to get some assistance. Just ok

    Amazing food as always, location is not the best as it is not close to any real after dinner venue. And the setting Sun destroys an entire section of seating as it makes it way down for the evening.

    We were assisted by Megan who was our main server and Trevor assisted when needed. Megan was so gentle, welcoming, humble and friendly. She was very attentive and efficient. She helped with provided detailed information of the menu selection and provided her recommendations. Literally was a pleasure having her. Trevor also was attentive and kept checking in to make sure we were good and had everything we needed. We sat outside where the view was beautiful & it was nice and quiet. Definitely will be back!

    My fiancé and I went to Ruth’s Chris for our anniversary. They sat us even before our reservation time and sprinkled confetti on the table. The service was a bit slow but they were also pretty busy. The food and drinks were absolutely phenomenal though! I highly recommend getting dressed up and going on a date night here!

    This was our first visit to Ruth's Chris and we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The food was epic! Could have been the best meal I've ever had. Something for everyone... my kids loved it as well. Our server, Chris, was awesome. he explained the menu and made some suggestions. He made the experience great. We were all really impressed by the food and the service. It's expensive... but worth it!

    Ruth’s Chris is our go to restaurant for date night and spent many anniversaries here. Their service is always professional yet a welcoming atmosphere, and never disappoints. Porterhouse for 2 is our usual steak to order but we went for the Tomahawk this time and good thing we listened to our server. Food is always delicious and consistent. We had the ahi tuna for appetizer, for sides had the asparagus with hollandaise, and lobster mac & cheese. Creme brulee for dessert. Everything we had felt special and still thinking about it the next day. Bring friends and loved ones here and everyone will have a great time.

    We go to RCHS every time we’re in San Diego. This is our favorite location of all of them because of the views and we’ve always experienced outstanding service and meals. Chris was our waiter and attended to all of our needs. The steak and shrimp or lobster on their prefix menu was absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to come back again. ❤️❤️❤️
