I am a return patron to Ruth Chris and every aspect of being a satisfied customer has been met. You will leave this place being pleased with the way you were treated and of course full of delicious entrees. Mahalo for the complimentary Champaign and dessert. Yes, it was for my birthday.

We chose Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for our 40th anniversary celebration. We planned our trip to Hawaii as part of that celebration. Our waiter was great. I don't recall his name which is bad of me but was very attentive. Our table had rose petals on it and that was very sweet. The steak was one just right. Creamed spinach and asparagus were great. We were given complementary champagne and that was another bonus. Next time back to Hawaii we will definitely come for dinner.

My wife took me to celebrate my birthday. Amazingly enough, neither of us had ever been to Ruth Chris and we were quite curious. We got an outdoor table, covered, light rain and beautiful evening with a view of NCL cruise ship departing. In all, a grand gesture and a grand night, however, just experiencing Capital Grille in Scottsdale about a week ago and previously many great dinners at Hy’s and Michel’s here in Honolulu, I would have to say Ruth Chris would be my fourth choice out of these comparable restaurants. Sorry. We had the Calamari appetizer with a great sauce but it was very tough, the wedge salad was literally a half head of iceberg lettuce on a plate. My steak, petite filet, was good and cooked perfectly rare and the service was good.

I thought the service was excellent and the friendly atmosphere refreshing. It was elegant/casual in feeling. I also liked the complementary champagne for my birthday.
The steak was exceptional and I liked the other items. I did not think the recommended
vanilla ice cream was up to the standards of this restaurant. I would recommend some
softer and more relaxing music, perhaps a bit more romantic. Have to admit, my age
may play into this request!

It was fantastic! Honestly I have been visiting the Waikiki location since it opened and relegated the downtown location as outdated. But I went for my birthday with my family and everything was perfect. Easy parking, great service, phenomenal food. Everything we could’ve asked for.

The food was of the highest quality and the servers were very courteous. The only disappointment was that the delicious escargot dish doesn’t come with crostini, but instead is expected to be eaten with the provided bread. Would’ve been great, except our bread was low and didn’t get refilled for a while, and in the meantime, the cheese hardened on the escargot. Despite that minor setback, we were very satisfied and happy with our dining experience.

We had a wonderful dinner experience! Unfortunately, I forgot the server's name. She had an unusual (Indian) name and she was excellent--friendly, helpful, and efficient. For starters, we ordered the seafood gumbo, Caesar salad, and seafood tower. Delicious! For entrees, we had the petite filet and rib-eye. Our sides included sweet potato casserole, creamed spinach, and cremini mushrooms. Then for dessert, we shared an apple crumb tart. Everything we ordered was great! And I know I'm showing my age when I say this, but I enjoyed the 'oldies' music in the background. We will be back... for sure...

Bisher war ich 3 x in Miami, Dubai, NY, 2 x in SF. Bis auf das letzte mal in SF war es immer super. Leider hat sich der Abwärtstrend auch in Honolulu fortgesetzt. Die Qualität des Essens hat bei meinen letzten 2 Besuchen nachgelassen .

Best steak house in town. Steaks done to perfection. Efficient, friendly service. Good wine list at sensible prices. Although the ambience is upbeat, acoustics are excellent and everyone at the table could be heard. Attire is mostly casual, but also a great place for a special occasion. Highly recommended.

Prime time menu is a deal @ 64.95!! We ordered the filet mignon and ribeye and were in heaven! Great service as expected, great music selection to entertain my 15yr old daughter who was a bit intimidated when we first walked in, as this is her first fine dining experience. George our server was amazing! Will definitely return to this Restaurant Row location!!

We had the Prime Time dinner menu which is a 3 course menu and spectacularly priced. It's one of the best deals around!!! Its a great way to treat yourself to food luxury without the luxury price.The service was impeccable, each food entree was brought out with perfect timing, and every time I go the experience has always been lovely. You won't be disappointed with anything you order and the wait staff is the etopime of customer service. Thank you David! You are the best server!

From start to finish probably one of the top 5 bad fine dinning experiences I've had. Servers were not very attentive and slow. Food was a 3 out of 5 nothing amazing. Safe to say i won't recommend this location to anyone. Headed over to Vino next door save our bad dinner experience.
