Fantastic food, service and views!
Great job, thank you so much!!
We are so glad to hear this, Don! Thank you for leaving a great review!
Good food, Good Service
Scott was AwEsOmE!
Our server, Scott, was great. He was attentive, had great recommendations & was very friendly. In fact, the entire wait staff was great! I think it was Brandon that always kept our waters full & bread on the table. I would definitely recommend the Del Mar location to anyone looking for a great dining experience with awesome food!
It was a very nice experience. We felt welcomed and food was fantastic! Thank you.
Always a treat!
We are regulars there but the The food wasn’t as good as usual this time.
The only issue that we experience was that we asked for our leftover meals, but were never returned to us.
Other then that , everything was great.
The food was great. The service lacking. Our waiter Luis was not having a good day and we suffered the consequences. Service was rushed. He wanted us in and out of there. He missed part of our order and by the time he came back to see how things were going it was too late for him to put the order in. We passed, as we were almost done. I wish we had the waiter on the next table. He was pleasant and service minded. I'm very disappointed in the service. The food was very good. I would hesitate to go back, though.
We have dined here several times before. We have attended wine maker dinners as well. It is a beautiful space. That is until restaurant week when we were shuttled upstairs into a horrible space with dirty carpet and fold away tables and chairs; it looked like it was a space used for events and NOT for regular dining. The space and the guests were not what we were used to seeing at any Ruth’s Chris. Huge tables of multiple guests. Service was decent as always but it felt like a machine. I understand the concept behind Restaurant Week; however our experience was NOTHING like when we have dined in the beautiful space downstairs with the gorgeous view. Not to be an elitist but was was a very poor very uncomfortable experience for us We are not inclined to return at all after being so poorly treated
Love this place and the service
It was great celebrating my birthday there. We had great service and food was excellent.
Our yearly visit during restaurant week. Always a great time with great food and service.
Requested a table near the window or a booth a week prior for my birthday. They tried to seat us in their awful upstairs banquet room with neither a view or a booth (and smells like sterno). After a bit of a wait we were relocated to a lovely table in the main room. Unfortunately the waiter Tony was pushy on appetizers and then not very attentive in general. Ruth's Chris is not new, it's not our first visit by any means, and we know what to expect, usually. Tonight was sub par.
We know that celebrations are special moments, so we are concerned to hear that your recent experience wasn’t what you were expecting. Would you please contact us directly and share more details with us in a private message? Please send your contact information, including a phone number. We would welcome the chance to make things better.
I was disappointed because I specifically requested for a booth but when we got there, we didn’t get a booth. This was my first time at this location as I usually dine at the Harbor Drive location. Usually, birthday celebrant’s name is on the menu however, this location did not have the celebrant’s name. Food selection was also disappointing compared to what I’m used to at the Harbor Drive location. I guess I would just have to keep dining there and will never come back to this Del Mar location. Frustrating because you would think you’d get the same experience since it’s the same restaurant. Was I wrong.
Great evening, attentive waiter Shane, food par excellence as always
Love this restaurant. Bubba was great.
The food is always fantastic. The service is ofter very slow, but friendly.
We had such a wonderful dinner & a big thank you to Rich for making us feel very special!
Took my daughter to dinner to celebrate her 18th birthday. The staff made the evening special.
Very cold in this restaurant. Took forever to get our main dish.
As always, Ruth Chris delivers the highest quality dining experience! Delicious, meticulous service, superior ambiance.
YAMA best waiter EVER. Great food as usual the chopped salad is absolutely amazing they treated us to a great birthday dessert I’m not gonna lie though it is pricey
Great food, great service. No complaints from me.
It was by far the worst experience it’s ever been going to a Ruth’s Chris establishment . I go quite frequently and this was horrible. I was literally waiting for my food for a hour .
Great birthday set up for their guests
Excellent lunch! We had great food and service. Cannot wait to go back.
We celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary there and they made everything just right for this special occasion. Kudo's to our server Yuma and the rest of the team.
I have been coming to this weeks for a very long time and went to recently celebrate my birthday.
They mixed up our order. We ordered one regular filet and 1 small. Got 2 small and was charged for 2 regular. $53. Each versus $48. Each.
Ordered the Cowboy Reiye steak medium rare and it was overcooked, my second glass of vine was not what I ordered.
The food is so tasty. Obviously, the steaks are incredible. Our favorites are the shoestring fries and the sweet potato casserole. I wish the curtains were open earlier so we could see the views and the noise level could get a little loud. Overall, I would completely recommend for any special occasion.
The service was phenomenal! The food was amazing! Definitely a great place to bring your spouse or loved one.
Always good service and excellent steaks. Also the Chop salad and sweet potato.
The foods were great and service was great. However, the noise levels were higher than I like.
Great as always. Have a difficult time understanding how the negative reviews have taken place because we have enjoyed outstanding food and service at Ruth Chris’ for 35 years.
Wait staff was inexperienced and the food service was extremely slow. It took almost 2 hours to eat. We were prompt to order our food when the server came to our table, but the food took forever!
