Great flavor with the Ribeye steaks. noise level was very good making conversation very easy. The service was impeccable, and a new steak was brought out when my wife's was slightly over-cooked. Pricey, but very good!

Slow service, high prices, and marginal quality steak. Everything you might expect at mc Donald's, but not a $100 per plate restaurant. No second chances.

I was really looking forward to my first meal at Ruth Chris. And was very disappointed in my 58.00 ribeye. More than half of it was fat and the meat was undercooked and tuff I wish I had read reviews before I ordered it. It seems like I am not the only one that got a “fatty ribeye “. I don’t understand why they keep serving chunks of fat like this with all the bad reviews. It ruined our anniversary dinner.

We asked for the steak w/no butter due to a dairy allergy. It came to the table looking like it was boiled. I’m sure they were lazy and put it in the oven. Then we said, where is the Char? Oh, you didn’t say you wanted it charted, said the waiter! He took it away and in a flash it was returned w/a burnt crust. It tasted like the chemical they use in an acetylene torch, which they probably used to make the char. It was also well done. We won’t be returning.

We love this restaurant, and this was a first. We ordered a steak, mashed potatoes, and corn along with a couple glasses of wine. Our steak did not taste or smell right, they apologized and removed the dinner items from the check.

 (Palm Springs)·Dined on November 11, 2017

We have experienced Ruth Chris at other locations and it lived up to its reputation. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and every server wished her happy birthday. The meal was very slow in coming and both steaks were over cooked. We ordered “pink-not red” and both were well done and dry, no pink. We are not in the habit of sending our meal back and it took such a long time for service, we ate and left disappointed. Expected more for the price paid.

Nice location. I have eaten at various Ruth Chris. The service here was good and attentive. The bread and sweet potato casserole were very good. Unfortunately, my wife's steak was chewy and not worth finishing. Fortunately for extra bread!

Delicious food. You can order all kinds of main dishes, but their steak is the best. Don’t waste your time with the chicken or fish. Great house wine and perfectly made side dishes. I will continue to dine at Ruth Chris.

Service was wonderful, as always. My steak was actually a bit tough this time. Have never had that experience before, but it was hard to cut and chew in some spots. Disappointment for Ruth Chris. Everything else was very good.

This was the second time this week we dined at Ruth's Chris and had the same thing because it was so good the first time! We enjoyed the ahi sashimi appetizer followed by a petit filet and the creamed spinach. It was very tasty. The service was excellent and my husband enjoyed his Manhattan made with 4 Roses bourbon and Luxardo cherries. He was in heaven!

A very good meal.

If you have ever been to a Ruth's Chris before and liked it, then you will not be disappointed. This shop has a nice island vibe. The servers knew the menu well and made you feel welcome. The meat and fish were well prepared. The mixed drinks were tasty. The price point was right on for the island. Not cheap, but better value than many other places.

It was my birthday, and they were nice enough to bring out a couple of glasses of champagne and a strawberry flambé dessert at the end of the meal. I would come back next time we are on the island.

We dine here regularly during our visits to the Big Island. While all of our meals have been excellent in the past, we were disappointed in this visit. My daughters filet mignon was fatty and tough. We also waited almost 40 minutes for our main course to be served. Definitely not the overall quality you would expect from Ruth Chris.
