It's been years since I have been to Ruth Chris. I thought I needed to try the Ruth Chris Downtown due to it's ratings. Well, I was a bit disappointed. The Caesar Salad was not fresh and the dressing lacking. Croutons were soggy. The crab cakes were delish though! Ordered the petite filet which was apparently partially frozen because the center was cold (ordered medium to medium rare). Hard to believe since the dish comes out on a sizzling plate. Taste comparing to other similar dining experiences was mediocre. It was good. Not great or exceptional. Service was a tad slow and courses were brought out just as we were about to inquire about our order. There are many choices in Honolulu where you can enjoy similar foods and I would venture to say better quality choices.

Dined here for a birthday dinner. Service was EXCELLENT. Our server was Chris and his helpers...they were all excellent. Really added to our dining experience.

Ambiance it was nice but out table was next to a couple tables with young children who happen to be noisy. I was also surprised the music was so loud. Made it hard for my boyfriend’s father who is hard of hearing to hear us.

It was Wine Wednesday so we enjoyed two bottles at 35% off. The food was excellent. We all ordered the meal deal. Boyfriend and I ordered the ribeye, it was perfect. Father ordered the petite filet. He really enjoyed it. The deal came with a salads, a smaller side and a dessert. We were so full but enjoyed our meals.

The parking was free with validation.

Definitely will dine here again.

This restaurant has the top notch employees that take such great care of their guests. I have only been here occasionally and have never been disappointed. Hats off to the best servers I have ever had.

It was our 37th wedding anniversary and this restaurant poured special memorable gifts to us. We had rose petals on our table waiting for us when we arrived, also a complimentary drink, we don't drink so they blessed us with plantation iced tea and a ginger ale. Then we received a delicious strawberries in a sweet mild sauce. Thank you.

Definitely had a great time here with my boyfriend for his 32nd birthday! Our main server, Taylor was amazing. He greeted my boyfriend “happy birthday” multiple times, took care to explain the menu and checked on us continuously to make sure everything was to our liking. He even went above and beyond and took all the pictures and then some that I asked for. We were served complimentary bubbly, and we enjoyed our food. My boyfriend had the tomahawk which was cooked medium rare to his liking and I got my New York strip steak cooked medium well. We had oysters rockafeller, stuffed mushrooms and lump crab for our appetizers which we loved, and for dessert their complimentary fruits was amazing, and their cheesecake was just as great as everything else. My only gripe was my entree side of shrimp. It didn’t say that there was a spicy element to it on the menu, so I didn’t think much of it and ordered it. It was actually spicy and I cannot eat spicy die to medical reasons. My boyfriend, however, loved it. Overall great experience! Thanks again!

As usual, well prepared filets and rib-eye, very good sides, oyster Rockefellers were presented well and above average in taste. Very good desserts: apple crumble and ala mode and berries in cream. Service was prompt and efficient and responsive, but did seem more business-like than friendly and inviting.

If you like tasty, high quality meat, and a good wine collection, here's the place for you. Sides are a la carte and shareable. It's romantic, but not well-lit (mood lighting?) so if you have a hard time looking at small print in the dark, be warned!

Always a great choice for a special occasion.

Excellent steak, sides and creme brulee'. A little disappointed when the lychee martini arrived already in the glass with some ice chips. Manager credited the cost when she found out. Martinis should ALWAYS be shaken and poured at the table! But another great experience at RC.

As always the ambiance and the service by waiter George and the food was simply awesome. It was my wife's birthday and we all enjoyed the service and food immensely. We will be coming to your restaurant for a long long time. As long as George is there and the food stays consistently fabulous. Other than the fire alarm that went off that night and it seemed like they couldn't shut it down, and luckily we were leaving already, the night was perfect.

Overall good experience from hostess greeting to finish. The Oyster Rockefeller was excellent, filet and rib eye steaks were what we expected from Ruth’s Chris, the mash potatoes and au gratin were tasty and the service was good (one of our measurements for good waithelp is the frequency of beverage refills which was done in perfect time). The desserts were a bit too sweet in the apple pie and the white chocolate bread pudding but the black coffee balanced it out.
Next time we’ll ask to be seated away from the wait help podium and the rest room. Lots of traffic passing by.

The food was ok, my husband appeared to really enjoy the steak. The worst part was the dining room. We made a reservation and was there plenty of time before. When we were seated there were several other tables empty (I’m assuming for other reservations). Although we were an early reservation we were seated at a table directly in front of the patio exit. The time of our reservation left the sun setting directly in our eyes every time the door was opened or closed (quite frequently). No one seemed to care or offer us another space. It was also warmer because of the location. I would honestly not go again because of the carelessness of this seating and how no one seemed to care that it was an issue.

Had requested a banquette but didn’t receive it. Upon bringing it to someone’s attention, a booth was suggested. Secondly a banquette was found. Only problem it was in front of the service station. Therefore , there was lots of disconcerting activity in front of us all evening - movement and talking.

Would choose a different steak house next time.
