$62.00 for a bone in ribeye is a bit expensive but the steak was delicious. The server “Malone” was pleasant to talk during our service. Overall this location is consistently great.

Ruths Cris never fails to deliver a great food experience. The server Louie was attentive but not cloying. The food comes out rather quickly so no waiting for long periods of time for your food. Everything was exceptionally done.

Very good food (shrimp, steaks - filet, ribeye and NY - and chicken. The calamari appetizer and stuffed mushrooms were excellent, calamari best we’ve had and we try it at almost every restaurant. The cheesecake is also the best. We occasionally stop by just to get cheesecake to go.

Service was outstanding

Overall, a really enjoyable evening for our 8th grade promotion dinner

My son told me about the salmon tasting weird during dinner, not enough to return the fish, trusted restaurant and blame it on a previous candy or something . 1 hr later he had a nasty stomach flu.

The Bone-in ribeye was excellent this time!! The Seafood tower was also fabulous. It’s one of our favorite restaurants & go-to places for steak in San Diego.
Love it!

We went to Ruth Chris to celebrate my sons high school graduation. The restaurant made a personalized menu that read Congratulations Logan! They put confetti on the table and made the whole evening very special. Our server was also outstanding!! Food fantastic as always.

Food was good and delicious but average like all other prime steak houses. Was very disappointed with the barbecue shrimp appetizer. It was more like a shrimp scampi with less flavoring. Definitely not something to select next time around. Other than that, we dined to celebrate my husband‘s birthday. We had a comfortable and relaxing time.... Nothing incredible to write about

Horrible quality of meat. Was hard and dry
Good service. Very expensive never going back. Don’t mind paying for good quality but mind paying for bad one.

Porterhouse are always great. Fab view of the coastal areas. I was there at sunset. That was the best. A great steak and a California sunset. It doesn't get any better than that.

The serving staff lead by Christa was the best I’ve ever had. They were outstanding!
My rating was low because I had too high expectations for the dining room experience, the view, and the side items of the meal.

Unfortunately, this will not be a positive review for Ruth’s Chris Del Mar.
From the start they had our table confused with another party..3 times the
hostess came over to ask my name...then forget to give us a cocktail menu..
Service was so incredibly superficial...one of the worst waiters I have ever had...
The Caesar Salad was tasteless and desert..a cheesecake with carmelized bananas
was horrible and left on the plate...the good, steaks were very good as was the spinach
and bread. My friend had never been to Ruth’s Chris and was not impressed.

Service and food was very good - a bit noisy however. We booked our reservation on-line through Open Table but was advised we would NOT receive any Open Table points for dining there - Why ?

The meat arrived before the side dishes. The servers didn't bring them until 10 minutes later. Usually, the meat quality is exceptional. This time it was just good. Not my best visit to this restaurant.

I haven't been to Ruth's Chris in several years, and the last time I went I loved it. Not true this time. Service was ridiculously slow, orders was botched and our waiter was completely in the weeds. The one thing that really annoyed me was that we had a party of 10, and at the outset ordered a couple of bottles of $125 wine for the table. Rather than anticipate we would be ordering more, the waiter neglected to tell me that those were his last two bottles. We then had to order different wine for the last three bottles (higher in price), and I ended up with a headache this morning from mixing Cabernets. Overall, very disappointing.

It would have been 5 stars if not for the wait at the hostess stand... Even though we had a reservation, we still had to wait ijj/ wwwwhile. I also saw some others dealings with RC staff that wasn't quite upp If not for that, this is still one of my favorites in the country (and I have been to almost all the RC's in the US)..

They couldn't get my medium rare ribeye right. Was attempted 4 times and was either blue/rare or med well. Out of desperation I finally gave up and had dessert and left.
