Very nice. Had dinner reservations at Sunday, 8pm and was seated promptly. The host at the front was very friendly and the waiter was very helpful with menu suggestions.

The consistency in quality is why I continue to return, but the service this go around was below par. I was with a big group from work and asked to split checks and got push back from the waiter and some BS story about how the computer doesn’t let them split checks.
I also had to ask for another drink as my glass sat empty after a couple of times when the waiter seemed too busy.
Other than that, I love the food, I love the place and will definitely return, but I will make sure not to have the same waiter.
Everyone has a bad day, so I won’t hold this against my favorite restaurant.

We always have made Ruth Chris our destination for special occasions and unfortunately this last visit was our worst ever. Two of our steaks were sent back to the kitchen due to undercooked, the sweet potato casserole was so dry and lacked the usual toppings that make it so sweet and delicious, the waiter was slow to refill drinks and my son has a severe egg allergy and asked the waiter to check the recipe for egg. He never came back with an answer. Very disappointing

The food and service were great. It was my first time eating at Ruth’s Chris. The only complaint I have was the noise level from other tables,however that can’t be placed upon the staff.

We eat here all the time but we came here to celebrate my 35th birthday and our server, Christopher was not very attentive to our table. No birthday confetti. No birthday dessert. Nothing special. It was a little sad. Food was excellent as always but service was zero stars out of 5. Maybe because we were young, who knows. Pretty disappointed with tonight’s dinner experience.

Food was great, service was a little bit slow, but still four star. Had the cowboy ribeye, classic. Potato scallops, spot on. Kids meal was a 4 out filet, not bad. Same as I remember it the last time I was there.

I’ve been to Ruth’s Chris steakhouse twice before. The first time was during 2018 OC Restaurant week. My experience was beyond outstanding! The service and food was exemplary! I couldn’t wait to dine again at Ruth’s Chris. The second time was for a birthday celebration, which was nice but not quite as outstanding. This time during OC Restaurant week, the service again was exemplary but the food was not as outstanding as twice before. My filet mignon was under cooked and returned to be cooked “up another degree,” which was done but returned smothered in butter, which I had originally requested not to be applied. A server again quickly retrieved my steak n placed it on s clean, extremely hot plate, which I appreciated, but ended up with an over cooked steak.

Went to Ruth's Chris to celebrate my son's birthday. Reservation made for 7pm, we arrived around 6:50pm, but had to wait until 7:40pm to be seated at the table. The whole restaurant was very busy, crowded and noisy. The steak, ordered medium rare, but more like medium well done. Overall, a bit disappointed with the value, the food and ambience.

Service was average and the prices have gotten too high. $56 for a little steak? Too much- and they seem to nickel and dime people now. Still love the food though.

I had been to Ruths Chris many time before with former work staff. New remodel/deco is stiff and ugly (sorry). Food was’ok’, but not over the top as before. I substituted ice cream instead of their House Cheesecake, and got an up-charge. Seriously? Ice cream? Took my son for his first time. Seated first in closed-in dining room so asked to change. Got seated next to kitchen. Finally ended up in main dining at two top. Was 515 resv., so no one was there yet. Sheesh. Service was good- but didn’t appreciate even the small up-charge when she said no worries- she’d figure it out. Uh-huh.

Worst experience at a usually good Ruth’s Chris. Server was painfully slow......Assistant server was eating while he was working. Kept coming in the dining room finishing chewing and it wasn’t gum. Lobster Mac was runny. We eat this all over the country and this was the only bad experience we can remember, besides ANAHEIM RC being generally crummy. Hostess station was disorganized. Showed up 15 minutes early for reservation and was sat 10 minutes late after making a fuss for 2nd time. Hope it is not a sign of things to come. Might have to stick to eating in the bar at this location. They are much more on top of it.

Ruth’s Chris Steak House rarely underdelivers on food, service and ambiance. We went during the $50 OC Restaurant Week so it was pretty busy which slowed down the service. Our waiter was friendly and on point. He let us know Ruth’s has a flat fee multi course menu year round. We will go back for sure!

We had a 6:30 reservation on a Sunday and had to wait 30 mins to be seated together with a bunch of other unhappy people in a very small, crowded waiting area. When we were finally seated, the service was slow...we didn’t make it out of the restaurant till 9PM. This restaurant over-booked their reservations and overwhelmed their staff. They also didn’t seem concerned with this poor customer experience.
