Thanksgiving dinner was yummy! Turkey, gravy, yams with walnuts, sausage dressing, mashed potatoes, string beans, and corn sliced off the Cobb. Home made cranberry chutney, choice of salad or crab / corn chowder and pumpkin pie for desert.

Great food as always. Service was wonderful and attentive. Every time I've been here the staff, the food, the ambiance was fantastic. I love their consistency and attention to detail. The lighting has alway been a bit dim for my taste, but the lighting adds to the romantic atmosphere. Also, be prepared to drop some $$ for your meal. But, trust me, you will not be disappointed.

Although the weather was bad that evening, it was worth the drive to the restaurant. We brought a friend visiting from the Philippines. Everyone had a great evening. Excellent service and food is great. Our server is very attentive and the other helpers are great.

We visited to celebrate an anniversary. It was a first time for both of us. We appreciated especially the outstanding service and attentive staff. We were checked on a greeted by at least 2 managers plus the maiter Di. We appreciated being given complimentary glasses of champagne as we started our evening and ending with a complimentary flambé strawberry dessert. It was obvious there were several other couples celebrating events. Would have liked to have a more intimate table but the restaurant was surprisingly busy for a Monday night. Live music would have been a nice touch. Overall the food quality was very good. Nothing surprisingly good or different but was high quality and prepared well. Everything is ala carte. We will return in the future

I love their filet mignon steak... the best one I've had compares to other steak house.... and the staff were very friendly and attentive. They also have a great happy hour steak set which includes salad and mash potatoes... price is reasonable. I recommend this place who just wants to hang out for dinner or happy hour. Lots of parking too.

We celebrated my daughter’s birthday. The service was excellent. Very friendly and professional. The manager came over to say hi. The assistant manager was very friendly, explained the Ruth’s Chris story. Our server, Taylor, was very patient and helpful with suggestions. We were extremely satisfied with the food, the service and ambiance. Definitely will recommend to others.

Thank you for a great dinner. Truly enjoyed the porterhouse for two, ordered it for the first time. It was excellently prepared, and extremely flavorful. One of the best dinners at Ruth Chris. Having been to several of the best steak houses in the world, their porterhouse for two, served on sizzling butter is a must try.

I would have given them a full set of 5 stars but my pet peeve is arriving at the restaurant at the time of my reservation and the table is not ready. Just once, I'd like to walk into an establishment and have my table waiting for me instead of waiting for my table. If I can go through the trouble of making a reservation, it seems to me that the restaurant can do their part and have the table ready.

Everything was very good. It was my wife's birthday and they treated us very well.
Only one concern. My ribeye steak was not up to par. A ribeye should be tender and melt in your mouth. I have had it before at Ruth's Chris but this time my ribeye, although it was well seasoned it was full of gristle and sinewy. Only able to eat half of it... It's a steakhouse so this should not happen.

カカアコエリアのレストランロウ内、老舗らしい佇まいのレストランです。
ワイキキエリアのステーキハウスは、賑やか過ぎたり予約が取りづらかったりしますが、こちらは雰囲気も良くゆったりと過ごすことができます。

観光客でもトロリーやタクシーで気軽に行けますし、日本語メニューもありスタッフは親切なので多少コミュニケーションが取れれば問題無いです。

今回は家族で夕方のプライムタイムメニューを頂きました。前菜のサラダ、付け合せ、メインとデザートのコースで満足感のあるコースです。日本人にはフィレとリブアイが好まれるそうですが、納得の美味しさでした。
なおお皿ごとオーブンで焼き上げて熱々で提供されるので、余熱でもかなり火が通ります。焼き加減はミディアムもしくはミディアムレアがお勧めです。

Service was not so good.

We ordered bottle of wine, but was served just with the main meal (wine came at the same time with main dish).
The waiter said "Your in time"
What was the meaning ???
We missed to enjoy and taste the wine before the main meal.
So we couldn't drink the whole bottle.

We barely saw our waiters throughout the meal. Our main waiter forgot what we ordered, forgot my wine order, forgot we were there for our birthdays and between the 2 waiters serving that area they only checked on us once after the food arrived. For the prices and expectations of that restaurant the service should be impeccable and the waitstaff just seemed to be dragging that night. The food was fine but going forward we will go to the Waikiki location as they seem to be more on spot with their service.

The layout of the restaurant appears to have changed and this may account for the atmosphere being less inviting. The ambience was ruined by a very loud group celebrating a birthday at the next table, making conversation with the couple we were with very difficult.

The service, while adequate, seemed a little less polished, perhaps due to inexperienced staff.

We are hoping this may have just been an off night, but considering the tab was over $400, it was a disappointing experience.

現地に住んでる知り合いにワイキキよりダウンタウンの方が断然味も雰囲気もいいと聞いて、こちらに決めました。シーフードとトマホークを2人でシェアしましたが、前日に食べたワイキキの有名なシーフードを手で食べるスタイルのお店よりも、シーフードがしっかり身が入っていて驚きました。やはり流行だけでなく、老舗がいいと再確認した所です。お肉は今まで食べた中で1番美味しいと思います。ホノルルではここ以外ありません。
