Celebration of my husbands 60th Birthday with the family. We had an amazing evening as always with remarkable food. The service was incredible. Melanie was our extraordinary waitress and Dylan close by to keep our glasses filled and leftover boxes full. Thank You!! We are never disappointed at Ruth’s Chris.

Best place for a good steak of any choosing...the atmosphere is really nice and quiet...only thing I did not care for was where we were seated, in the middle of the, I'm gonna call it doorway...very uncomfortable as people bumped my chair getting through to their tables...not a good place for a table if your gonna have people walking right past you...other than that...the waiter was wonderful and recommended a wine for me...

Dined for Valentine's Day. Ordered Surf 'n Turf, lightly charred medium rare and my wife ordered a Filet, almost medium done . My wife received my steak and I received her steak. We expressed this mix up to the waiter and he insisted it was correct. The manager comes shortly after to check and we again express the mix up. He requests me to cut into my steak and it is almost medium well done. The manager takes my plate and brings back another steak that is closer to medium rare, but not charred as I requested. My expectations were already gone. This has been my experience with Ruth Chris. INCONSISTENT. At $50-$70 a steak, you should be the most consistent place around.

Always love this restaurant. Service is perfect. Only disappointment this time was the valet. Did not open my door after my husband's, who was driving. Not what I expect after an exquisite meal with matching service. I called the manager on the way home and she apologized but said valet is outsourced. Perhaps they should hire their own valet?!!

I wouldn't recommend this particular Ruth Chris restaurant. I was disappointed with it. The valet was terrible. The food was just ok and the service was less than satisfactory this time. Overall, the evening was less than dynamic.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and will continue to do so! I have 3 steak house restaurants that I frequent and this is actually my favorite for a variety of reasons - mostly the staff, the cocktails and the fabulous food. This restaurant is beyond good - it is simply fabulous!

Great food. Great service- David was excellent. Restaurant was noisy. Recent remodel opened wall separating bar and restaurant. Staff at desk when entering were indifferent - no real greeting. More interested in their phones
Pretty much what we’ve come to expect from RC. Great food, great wait staff, subpar admin staff and mediocre facilities.

Melanie was amazing. She had a great personality and knows her job well. She knows how to properly pace a meal so that we felt neither rushed or in want. She knows to bring fresh wine glasses when opening a new bottle too. The food was prepared to perfection for each course and each part. It was served hot and it was served right. The assist staff was great to making sure water glasses were full and table was clear. The experience was a far cry from the horrible visit back in November and I trust it is what Ruth's Chris is and not just a show due to the fact we complained so hard last time

Unfortunately my previous visits to Ruth Chris was by far better then my LAST one. I ordered your famous Ribeye but it did not taste as good as it used to and that was everyone’s opinion on my table. Side orders did not taste as good either. Not sure why you guys are using these small plates to put a 16 oz steak on. Our waitress was ok but everyone that helped her was very unfriendly and made us feel like they were doing us a favor putting the plates on our table. Not sure what’s going on but I don’t care since I’m not going back. Oh I almost forgot the bread pudding at the end was horrible.

The food was incredible! However, I was actually left disappointed. I’m quite sure that is something that you never want to hear from a customer. We were celebrating my twins 23rd birthday. I was under the impression they would get a customized menu, which they did not; and then we were left disappointed when they did not even bring out a birthday dessert for them. I had to request it two times. When I booked my reservation I made it very clear that it was their birthday.

Kendra was our server. She is very attentive and in very in tune to the vibe of the evening. She delivered excellent service and the food was exactly as we ordered it. They recently remodeled the inside and although it is a little lighter there are still dark spots, which makes it hard to read the menu, but very very romantic. We were seated in the section where they put families with kids, so it was more energetic than I expected, but it did not bother me. Thank you Ruth Chris and Kendra for a great evening on our 23rd anniversary!

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 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!
