We love this restaurant. The steaks are amazing, even though we order them well-dine. The chef is fantastic. It is pricey, so we only come on special occasions, but it’s worth it

Everything that you love about a great "steakhouse" is here plus so much of what you never would normally expect. Classic presentations done perfectly along with some that have a contemporary and modern twist. There is absolutely no reason to consider going anywhere else, and not just for steaks but for chicken, pork, seafood and seafood dishes as well.

We were out on our anniversary and chose Ruth's Chris because of their consistent quality food and quality of service. Our server John did not disappoint!

We had Chilean Sea Bass and Lanb Chops! Both were excellent theLamb notably so.

We chose Ruth's Chris because we thought it would be a special place to celebrate our anniversary. We'd heard of the reputation and checked on line to see that they have a dress code; 'casual business' attire. We thought we were in for an elegant evening and great food.
Locating the restaurant was a bit difficult because their sign was only half working. It read something like, "THS EAK SE" in large red letters. As we entered, the place was teaming with the normal sports bar atmosphere, big screen TV, the Rose Bowl and lots of beer drinking folks in jeans and tees.
The dining room was large and open with nearly glaring light. My husband thought the petite filet tasted like venison and I thought it tasted like liver. The service was good but over all the food was not worth half the price. We left feeling like the Claim Jumper would have been better.
We would never go back!

This was a special occasion for Nee Years Eve as that’s when my wife and I met over 35 years s age and we always celebrate New Years Eve as a very special day in our lives.

The experience was well worth the cost.

Food and Service were phenomenal! Carter and Tom took excellent care of us. The noise level is bad (they need sound baffling in the dining area we were in). We could hear everything the tables around us were saying in detail - granted they may have been a bit louder than was necessary for the setting. Otherwise, everything was excellent.

Melanie was amazing. Loved her attitude and how attentive she and the other staff were to ensure we had a great dining experience. If you've been to Ruth's Chris NY this is more of an upbeat friendly vibe and I would highly recommend for special occasions. Big portions, great tasting food and beautiful atmosphere.

Food was amazing, service was great. My only complaint was the busser that was clearing tables. I know he was just working hard and trying to work quickly, however the way he was slamming dishes together onto his tray was very loud and annoying. This happened twice literally right behind us during our meal. They should consider the other guests when clearing tables.

We love Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, but not the one in Irvine. We have been to others but the one in Irvine does not live up to the standard. It could be that it was Christmas Eve. but when you are spending this kind of money for dinner, they need to make sure their staff is up to the challenge. They did not appear to be. Our meal was wonderful, my martini was amazing, dessert (supposedly Haagen-Dasz ice cream) was just mediocre.

Very good steak house for a business lunch or something comparable if I were comparing it to Morton’s Steak house or had the choice I would choose Morton’s hands down for ambiance, to take my wife for a date night as Morton’s has more of a romantic feel versus Ruth Chris is more of a work day hustle and bustle vibe to grab a nice steak during your busy day.

We signed in about 40 minutes ahead of the reservation time and was told to come back closer to the reservation time. When we came back around 15 minutes before our reservation time and signed in again, we had to wait approximately 1 hour (i.e. 45 minutes after the reservation time). Management took too many reservations on a Sunday night and lowered their standard of service. We didn't expect this type of service from an upscale restaurant like Ruth Chris.
