Everything was great! Our dinner took a little long but management came over an apologized for the delay.
Don took good care of us. My Mother and family really enjoyed themselves. It was a special night because we were celebrating my mom’s 85th Birthday!

Service was outstanding, our server Allan was great, as were all other staff.

The vibe was more relaxed here than the Waikiki location. I preferred it here.

Food was amazing, as always.

We were not disappointed at all.

First of all, the service by Shannon was exemplary; just outstanding. My ribeye was cooked perfectly and tasted great. But - and you knew there was a “but” coming - well-marbled is one thing. Fully 1/3 of my steak was fat and gristle. When paying $62 for a piece of meat (at Ruth’s Chris, everything is a la carte), my expectation is that I should be able to eat pretty much the whole thing. So in that respect, I was pretty disappointed.

It was just okay for a Ruth Chris restaurant. Atmosphere was nonexistent. The bar didn't have 2 of the beverages I requested. The food was good, as to be expected. I had better experiences at other locations.

It is our “go to” place to enjoy good food and service. Sat in the lounge. Alan, Carlson and 1 more boy (but I can’t remember his name) provided excellent service as is typical of Ruth Chris. Hostesses were polite and welcoming. Food was delicious as expected. Another great evening!

Outdoor seating which they said that’s all they had but tons of empty tables. Waiter disappeared for long times. Tons of bugs. Food came out cold, waiter took 15 min with our check at the end after he took it. Only good part was hostess in the beginning. Drinks were even meh. Had way better experience at Ruth Chris in Florida.

Excellent service, excellent food. We made the mistake of taking a booth and were seated on the main thoroughfare from the bar to the dining room which was busy and noisy. Request a table or a booth deeper in the dining room.

The food was a little overrated for the price. Ambiance would've been better had we sat in the back dining room. Service was great.

Be careful of the "Promotions" section of the website. Probably wrong (and can lead to great added costs). Also, be very aware of "gift cards" and "thank you offers, they have quick expiration dates and you have to read the fine print carefully.

As for the Porterhouse for two, it definitely can be eaten by one person. The bone must weigh at least a pound and a half!!

Celebrated my Mom’s 87th Birthday and once again, Ruth’s Chris Steak House did not disappoint. This was my late father’s favorite place and we would dine here all the time whenever it was his birthday!

Their early bird special is awesome!!!

We were off to a slightly rocky start as we were sitting for a while before being acknowledged by our waiter but once he did, things got better. Food was fantastic, all was good but the reason for the 3 stars is that we went to celebrate my 50th birthday which I included on the reservation. There was no acknowledgement of the celebration.

Worst service of any Ruth’s Chris we’ve been to. Incredibly slow, and got order wrong. Left dirty silverware on table rather than clearing it away. Our table was basically in a hallway rather than a dining room. We should have asked to change, I suppose. Overall, a huge disappointment.

The food and service was excellent. The hostess and manager were very delightful to speak with. The facilities are looking a little old, otherwise I would highly recommend. The bread pudding dessert was to die for.

記念日のディナーでしたが、ビーチウォーク沿いの店舗より、ダウンタウンのこちらにして良かったです。

テーブルに記念に赤い花びらのラインでしかれており、シャンパンサービスと娘にも特別なジュースも作ってくださいました。特別感たっぷりで、サービスしてくれたKaoさんはとてもフレンドリーで安心して食べることができました。

ローカルの人々も、特別な機会に利用されている感じでした。
またきたいと思います。

ワイキキのルーズスクリスと比べると店内も広くゆったりしていた。サービスも素晴らしく、アラモアナショッピングセンターからは少し離れているのでタクシー移動したが行く価値のあるお店だった。
注文したのは、ステーキハウスサラダ、エビのカクテル、エスカルゴ、Tボーンステーキ、マッシュルームで大人3人で十分な量だった。帰りのタクシーもお店が呼んでくれて店内で待っていると運転手さんが呼びに来てくれた。

Ordered a fine bottle of Italian wine, it never showed up, after 60 minute waiter admitted the barman couldn't find it. No apologies. Steak great, Creamed spinach cold, string fries cold and overcooked, steak
great but so was the bill and the waiting for food and wine that never arrived. Never a word of apology.
