The kitchen had some sort of delay. The Manager offered us free appetizer Ashimi but we passed. 2 hours to get our food. Due to the rain a nearby luau was cancelled so approximately 60 people from the cancelled luau descended on the restaurant. The staff got overwhelmed.

The table where the hostess originally sat us was horrible. We were basically facing The hostess booth. Dinner order was taken after 45 minutes of sitting there. Dinner: steak was perfect, potato was cold. My sons steak was good. His rice was crunchy and dried out. The waiter never placed the order for my veggies, so they never came out. Overall, I was completely underwhelmed with the food and service.

Great service, but the steaks were overdone according to how we had ordered them, and they were very bland and tasteless. Not at all what we had expected from advertising and especially the price. Not going to another Ruth's...

Usually enjoy Ruth Chris at this location, but this was a terrible trip. Salads took 30 minutes and were both wrong. Another 5-10 min to get them right... My glass of wine had cork floating in it (lots of cork) and was replaced. Steaks took another 40 minutes and my wife had requested no butter due to dairy sensitivity. They apparently switched out an entire grill for this as an allergy even though we didn’t state it as such. Her steak was medium rare,which I had ordered, and mine was rare as she had ordered, both petit filets. My steak was about 1/3 fat, extremely unusual for a filet mignon. She had French fried as her side since otherwise there was an additional fee for something without dairy, the fries came out nearly burned and barely edible. Manager said they were made special just for her.... Then as compensation for the now 2 hour bad dining experience the waitress offered us free dessert even though we were already getting desert via the early bird fixed price meal. Certainly not what we have previously experienced here. Not sure if we will be back.

Had a great experience. This was the best meal we had on our vacation. Service was top notch. Katie-ann (?) i think was her name. She was excellent. They accommodated some special order requests. Great wine choices. My only request in the future would be to manage the noise level. The people next to us were both on speaker phone conversations during their meal ans i would have appreciated someone in restaurant management to ask them to discontinue usage. It would have made the experience that much more enjoyable

Ryan was our server and he was a peach. We always have great service at Ruth’s Chris anyway. The week before we ate at the Waikiki location. My husband and I have set out to do a Ruth’s Chris World Tour. Trying to visit as many as we can. The food and drinks are just the best!!

Our experience at the Lahaina Ruth's Chris was outstanding!! It was our anniversary and all of our requests when making the reservation were met. We were welcomed by name and given a table we requested. The food was some of the best I've ever had, our waiter Craig was phenomenal. Our interaction with the assistant manager was excellent too! He made us feel welcome and special and I have never had a better steak in my life!!! Really!
Mahalo!!!!!!

We were on vacation and had been to all the local favorites and wanted to go some place where we knew we’d get a great steak. That’s why we picked Ruth’s Chris, you always consistently get a great steak no matter the location. Service was great! Loved the lobster Mac-n-cheese!

What a delightful anniversary we had there with a few red rose petals sprinkled on our table and 2 flutes of complimentary Champaign to toast our special day. The sun peaked through the clouds, giving us a bit of a sunset. Our waiter Kevin had impeccable timing, giving us a little time to enjoy our wine and sunset before taking our order. The New York steaks were perfectly cooked and the Brussels sprouts slightly sweet with honey and salty with bacon. Potatoes augratin tender and cheesy. Manager Nick came by to wish us happy anniversary and then again to make sure all was going well. The cheesecake was a delicious ending to the evening, although we took it back to the condo for a moonlight dessert on our balcony.

My time at Ruth’s was nice. The restaurant was very dark and our server was very busy with the larger parties not paying much attention to my table. The steak was dry and the crab didn’t have much meat in it. Overall kinda pricy for the service we received.

The two times that I used Open Table to make reservations here, Ruth’s acts like I don’t have a reservation when I get there, but they seat me anyway, and then it shows up on Open Table that i didn’t keep my reservation. I haven’t had trouble at any other restaurant that I haves used Open Table to make reservations.

Ordered 2 filet’s medium rare. Both were served very rare! Steaks were taken back and came back medium well! We were offered new steaks, but realized food was going to be wasted and opted to just eat what we already had. The other reason we opted not to get new steaks was that the service was painfully slow! This is the 2nd of three visits that has been sub par! Don’t think we’ll come back as there are other places to get a filet that is a better value. GM did deduct one steak from the bill, but really should not have hesitated to deduct both!!! Very disappointing!!!!!!
