From the moment we walked in, the customer service was over the top! The entire meal was fantastic!
Thanks to Ryan(server) and Nick (assistant General Manager) and the entire team for making our last night on the island, one to remember.

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.

Great service. Steaks were under seasoned and one was overdone and another underdone. We decided to get dessert, and it took 35 minutes. The whole dining experience took over 2 hours.

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!!!!!!

Not representative of Ruth's Chris at all. We frequent other locations on the mainland and this does not even compare. Manager was inept and honestly seemed to not care about our experience. Were told when we were seated by both the hostess and the server that it was wine Wednesday and that bottles were half off. I asked them to verify because I had not heard of this before at Ruth's Chris. They came back and stated that they checked with their manager and that yes bottles were 1/2 off. We ordered a much more expensive bottle because of this and when the check came the discount was wrong. The manager then came out to our table and explained that it was 25% off and that he was sorry we were told differently but chose not to correct it. The food was good but not the up to par with other locations. Worst value on Maui, would not revisit.

The service was extremely slow. Our appetizers were mediocre quality, not up to Ruths Chris standards. We waited 1 1/2 hours for the appetizers. Dinner menus were not available for the first 20 minutes. Overall, we enjoy Ruths Chris dining but this experience was not satisfactory .

They must have been having an off night. We got put in a back room, with a large (noisy) group being the only other diners back there. Steaks weren’t as good as usual (kind of pale, not seared the way they normally are, no crispy bits). Salads weren’t cold, and were kind of soggy. Not up to the usual Ruth’s Chris standards.

My wife and I love going to Ruth's Chris for the steak... not so much for the value. The steak, Caesar salad and shrimp cocktail was great, and enough... didn't need any sides.

This visit was on new year's eve and was fun to walk Front Street after dinner to see the Banyan tree all lit up in Christmas lights!

We were there for my husband's 60th birthday celebration. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful experience. My younger son's steak was initially a bit fatty, which was highly unusual for Ruth's Chris. The manager promptly got him a brand new steak, cooked to perfection. The manager took that steak off the bill. Everything about our experience was first-class. We will definitely be back and will surely recommend this location to all our friends and family. Thank you for a fantastic evening!

 (Hawaii)·Dined on December 3, 2017

I LOVE Ruth Chris. I have been to many throughout the country including the original in New Orleans. This particular restaurant in Lahaina is not consistent. The restaurant was slow only a couple tables and our server although nice didn't follow up with us and the food took a really long time to come out. Once it did, he placed the sides all on the table next to me istead of putting them by the person who ordered them. Our bill was incorrect, they overcharged us but it was corrected. I will go there again as I live on a small island but the one in Wailea and the ones on Oahu are much better. Waikiki is the best one! Also, Open Table's menu is not correct for the location. The menu shows items that are not available everywhere but you don't know until you get to the restaurant if they have that particular item or not which can be very disappointing.

There are two on Maui. Wailea and Lahaina. Although the drive from Wailuku was long it was worth the experience. The staff was extremely friendly and provided and excellent dining experience. Also the manager on duty was polite and caring to each diner. He checked to make sure everything was going and went well. The food was superb as always. Very pleased with my decision to dine there.

Attentive service without being intrusive. The wait staff very friendly and great if you have any questions about the Island. Food was perfection. On the high end, money wise. We had a bbq shrimp appetizer that was outstanding. Hubby had ribeye, while I stuck with petite fillet. Shared a baked potatoe. Brought our own wine (special occassion - anniversary). With $25 corkage, it made sense. Tab around $175 before tip. We couldn't even finish that potatoe! Both steaks were done just right. Why can't we do that at home? Weston was our very good, personable waiter. And the hostess up front just lovely.
