The calamari came out and was unbearably chewy, so we sent it back. My husband ordered the bone in New York strip, “a house favorite” for $76, and it came out black and blue (raw) with no sear, as if it had been cooked in an oven. So that went back to the kitchen for more cook time. The presentation of the steak was awful. Served on a tiny plate, in a pool of fat and the plate was splattered and very unappetizing looking. My fish dish was mediocre at best. The sides tasted like they were frozen and reheated. To top it off, the server brings out a plate of strawberries (probably 3 strawberries total, halved) as a closing treat to our meal, how nice right? When the check comes, we see we are charged for this item, which we did not order, and thought it to be a nice gesture on the house. This restaurant completely missed the mark! Unacceptable price tag for the food experience we had.

Wine list was pretty good and nice selection by the glass as well. We were expecting a less casual restaurant but a number of patrons were in shorts/t-shirts so was not the more upscale experience we may have been expecting. It's Hawaii so I guess it's more casual but just wanted to note in case people thought this was a fine dining experience. If you want a nice steak this is a good choice.

The sides were very good. They were happy to split a Caesar salad for us. We have been eating a more plant forward diet, feeling great from that, but this was a treat and it was wonderful. Definitely pricey. We have gone to Ruth’s Chris about once a year for a couple years. Plan to continue this tradition.

We were happy to find a RC on the Big Island during our stay. The food was excellent, prepared just right, our waiter was on top of our needs and made our dinner very special. I have a pepper allergy and it’s in my notes. Everyone who served us knew about it and discussed it with the chef. Thank you everyone for making our dinner GREAT.

The spinach was cool to the touch. Everything lacked flavor and nothing tasted fresh. Our server, Lisa, was lovely throughout, she made the evening for us. For the prices they charge the food should be fantastic. We thought “Ruth’s Chris” would be a sure thing as we have never had a bad meal at any one of them anywhere. Wrong. We’ll never return to this one.

First time in forever going to Chris that we did NOT have sizzling plates and steaks. Overall the worst meal I have ever had in the 50+ times I have been to Ruth Chris. The manager was helpful however definitely felt some passive aggressive BS from the waiter. Which was icing on the cake.

The experience lacked the elegance of Ruth Chris, service was subpar-no run down of specialty plates/ dishes- waitress was arguing with the table across from us- Meal- our appetizer was seared ahi- really overcooked and white- ate all of it since it took such a long time to get (starving) Brussels sprouts really oily- wasn’t cool at all I really hope next time we visit will be different.

Hostess tries to seat us at a table next to the bussing station then seats us in the middle of loud children claiming no other tables available. It takes an hour to get your steak that is overcooked. Not worth the $$$$.

Waitresses response was “I’ll get that put onto a 900 degree plate for you”. I’m not crazy about cooking steaks on plates. It made it very greasy and had the reheated taste too it. Crab cake didn’t taste fresh either. Almost tasted like imitation crab. Scalloped potatoes were amazing. Pretty bummed. We were looking forward to an amazing steak.

The Kohala Coast location lived up to the very high expectations that we have, having frequently gone to Ruth's Chris in Baltimore for special occasions years ago. In fact, our experience this time was the best ever at a Ruth's Chris. A lovely birthday present- keep up the good work!
