    We are always pleased with our dinners and celebrations at Ruth’s Chris. Last night was the very best meal we have ever had there. Everyone of us enjoyed. Of course the New York Strip was great and done perfectly, however we tried the Sea Bass last night (and I’m not a big fish guy) and it was absolutely incredible. Edwin was a great waiter as well. Last night was the Pasadena location

    We been coming here for many years it’s always been our birthdays or anniversary go to place , always was one of our favorite restaurants. Unfortunately things change and for the worst . Hostess was not very friendly as they should be especially considering this supposedly is a fine steakhouse facility. Made us wait ten minutes past our reservation time . Which at 9 o’clock had many empty tables . She takes us to are table and walks us through the waiters walk way very confusing trying to dodge wait staff with food and drinks not sure why she did that . Sat us right next to door way where everybody walks by, sits us and I was confuse as to why she sat us here and sits us down, I sit down on chair that didn’t have utensils and she said not to sit there and sit the at a different chair . I was literally shocked she made me move instead of rearranging utensils. It honestly ruined my evening and I should of said something but look like managers was already dealing with other issues and complaints. It really set the mood for the night . The waiter was very nice but seem very overwhelmed, in years past they always had a team of people helping you but not any longer . He did everything so we waited more than normal for things that shouldn’t be happening at a restaurant of this magnitude . We shared a cowboy ribeye and we ate half of it due to amount of fat in this steak. Like I said I’ve been coming here for years and I get ribeyes are fatty but for 75$ this was steak had the quality of a steak you buy at Stater bros, not to say that’s bad but at staters bro I get 3 steaks for $25 . The lobster bisque one of my favorite things to order tasted cold and water down, So the quality of there food has down down as well . It just seem like they had a very off night and not sure if I’m willing to give them another try as the Pasadena Ruth’s Christ had always been my fav!

    I was so excited to have an awesome dinner date! We had a double date and it was nice to catch up with old friends. However, our food was super late! The tables sitting next to us got there food way before us.. even though we placed our food way before them. I finally asked our waiter Andrew what’s going on? He apologies and said he will let his manager know. Manager never came to our table. My friends chicken was burned and that’s why our food was delayed. I get things happen but communicate with us, offer a salad for the wait time. I would thing Ruth Chris restaurant chain can be work more on customer service. Did I mentioned, that we where the only Hispanic couples in that room? It makes you wonder.

    The table sitting next to us was noisy. They were screaming, yelling, and it was difficult for us to have a fine dinner. No one told the guests on that table to stop screaming. We can’t believe the restaurant staff allowed them to do what they did. It was disturbing and we did not enjoy eating in this 5 star restaurant. We hope the restaurant did not allow this as we could not have a good conversation. It hurts our ears

    Ordered barbecue shrimp, Spicy shrimp dish came out instead. They had to take back the appetizer and bring the right one. Then the steaks were over cooked. They took back the steaks and recooked new steaks. Overall was a long wait and we just packed up the main course to take home as it was getting late.

    I celebrated my birthday with my wife this year, again. I remembered why I do. The service was a 10, the food was a 10, the way they treated me was a 10. I really enjoy coming to this location very much and will be back again soon. I also thought they were very well organized. The restaurant was packed, but, there was complete organization and every customer was being catered to, which was impressive.

    My wife and I have been coming to this Ruth’s Chris location for years. We’ve never had a bad experience, and this visit was no exception. We came to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Even though we’ve tried a ton of popular steakhouses around LA, Ruth’s Chris is still one of our favorites in terms of taste. Service today was excellent as usual and all staff was friendly and helpful. Thank you!

    This was my first time ever at Ruth Chris. I have been wanting to come here for quite a while now and finally for my 4th Anniversary me and my wife finally did. I had really high hopes based on all the reviews and research and boy was I not disappointed. They personalized the menu for our anniversary and also put confetti on the table to start. We ordered the Ribeye, stuffed herd chicken, Mac and cheese lobster, and fresh berries. Every single item tasted amazing so juicy and flavorful. At the end they brought out 2 champagne glasses with a happy anniversary cheesecake which were on the house and amazing. Big thank you to Stacy who was our waitress for the night and she was amazing.

    Service was exceptional!! Filet Mignon was perfectly cooked and so tender I cut it with a butter knife. Lobster tail was a bit small but was sweet and succulent. Bar area was lively but not too noisy. Didn't care for the high bar tables and disappointed that there was only one booth in the entire bar area.

    The reservation was for 6:15pm and we didn’t get seated until 6:45pm. The service was excellent but the food was mediocre at best. Normally the steaks come out on a sizzling plate but the plate was not hot and the steak was tough to eat. Very disappointed.

    I won’t be going back to the Pasadena Ruth’s Chris. I ordered the scallop potatoes it was just chunks of potatoes with cheese on it the service was awful steak was over done waiter overcharged us for some things just not the same as it’s been previously. I usually wouldn’t care but it was our anniversary and we spent a lot of money I won’t be back.
