Steakhouse


Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded in New Orleans, Louisiana by Ruth Fertel, a single mother of two who wanted a better life for herself and her two sons. She purchased "Chris" steakhouse in New Orleans which had been operated for the 38 years prior. She changed the name to Ruth's Chris when a fire forced her to move from the original location. Today, there are over 140 Ruth’s Chris Steak House restaurants across the globe. We look forward to our opening in Marina Del Rey, CA.

Came here from Utah, was hoping it to be similar to Capital Grill and it wasn’t even close. The service was very poor, we didn’t see our server for almost an hour, the restaurant wasn’t busy and the food was just fair. I would recommend you go somewhere else. Sorely disappointed.

The food was good. We were seated right away. Typically, when I go to Ruth Chris, the server places my napkin in my lap and it wasn't done at this location. Also, I always order the seabass and it usually comes garnished with a lemon on the plate. It was probably an oversight, but I noticed, nonetheless.

Otherwise, we enjoyed the meal and the service.

Fantastic experience at Ruth’s Chris for my friend’s birthday. From the host inviting us injust before they opened because it was very cold outside (for Calif) to the waitstaff service was phenomenal.

I was provided a pillow as I am short (5’2”) and the table was a little high at the booth. The waiter was very polite, helpful and ensured everything was perfect.

We both opted for the fixed price menu. The birthday girl had barbequed shrimp with Caesar salad and I had butternut squash soup as well as the petite filet with shrimp. All absolutely scrumptious. For dessert we had caramel cheesecake with vNilla ice cream (served to both of us for her birthday.

Just amazing, service and food! Can’t wait to return. Always a wonderful experience

We were recommended the tomahawk and seafood tower and were very happy with both. Our service was excellent as well. The one critique I may offer is one regarding your cocktails. While your old fashioned was delicious, it had the wrong type of ice cubes. A solid ice ball or cube is preferable to a glass full of regular ice cubes.

Buttery steaks, great appetizers, fantastic service and a staff willing to find a bottle of wine they declared was out of stock but found one in the back. Their persistence and service was appreciated and their service attitude will regularly bring me back to enjoy another experience. Well done MRD Ruth's Chris.

Four of us had dinner and none of us had steak. But that is not a problem at RC because they have some excellent selections for those of us who have had to cut back on the meat. All of us had fish/seafood. I had the king salmon which was cooked to perfection. Moist and tasty. I coul d not have asked for better. Added a side of cremini mushrooms and accompanied with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. A wonderful meal.

I’m a regular at this location and at others across the nation. This Marina Del Rey option is my neighborhood location and left myself and family wondering what happened during this last visit on 2/23/19.

1. Our desired table was not available, as requested.
2. Front desk staff were not polite or courteous.
3. People were well under dressed, although it clearly states expectations at the from - not enforced.
4. Shuttled to the back dining/group dining area, where the three of us were in a room with three other large and noisy groups of 10-16 per table....
5. AC kicked on, but it was barely 50 degrees outside.
6. Server was overwhelmed and tardy at greeting our table, let alone taking our drink order in a timely fashion.
7. Server then took extended time to deliver drinks, but even longer to make good on a kids Shirley Temple which is basically soda and grenadine.
8. Food took way too long to show up and at that point, we were just ready to call it quits.
9. Getting the bill was lengthy, but the steak was done to our satisfaction.

Overall, not sure we’ll be back anytime soon!

Had a very rough dining experience here last time we went. The front desk staff wasn’t very welcoming and the wait staff seemed out of it in a big way. Had to wait about 15-20 min to receive my glass of wine, long after receiving appetizers. Got a birthday menu for no reason. Had to place the same order twice because the waiters weren’t communicating with each other . This was not the Ruth Chris experience that I have grown to love at its locations around the world but rather a stumbling subpar effort of a failing franchise. I won’t be returning to this location anytime soon , and hope that the management team will take a hard look at all the things going downhill here. Start with the lady with really short hair on at the front desk - she has the wrong personality to be working with the public. Also saw her barking orders to a Latino fellow within earshot of multiple guests.

Everything was exceptional at the Ruth Chris, Marina del Rey. The hostess greeted us warmly, our waiter Damien arrived quickly, was informative and accommodating when we had a special request. He was a great.

The manager stopped by our table to welcome us and ensure we were happy with our meal. That was nice touch and we felt special.

Of course, our meal was delicious - 6oz filet with blue cheese topping and grilled garlic shrimp with sides.

Yumm!

Ruth's Steak Houses are always a very pleasant location for easy-going meal whether for a personal and business meal. As usual our meal at the MDR location was excellent for service and cuisine.
Our server, Angel, was very attentive and friendly throughout our meal.
The restaurant's Manager, Robert, was as personable as usual to us and other patrons.
Thanks for a relaxing and enjoyable meal.

You can't ever go wrong with the Lobster & Steak Surf & Steak Special! We also added Lobster Mac&Cheese and Sauteed Spinach as our sides. The steaks are prepared to perfection and the portion size is just right. Our server Kyle was extremely friendly and attentive and everyone greeted my 86 year old Dad with Happy Birthday!( In the future, however, I will definitely remember to request a booth seat,
as the only one available was near the kitchen and bathroom area)

We made reservations for a reason! When we arrived, before our reservation, we were told that they were cleaning a few tables and it would be just a minute. We waited an additional 15 minutes. I then seen an open booth on the way to our table and I was told that it would take a few more minutes to be cleaned, we agreed because we really wanted a booth. We waited a few minutes and then we were told that we could not have the booth and that we would have to specifically request a booth at the time of our reservation...ok? We were seated in a row of 3, two-seater tables, the proceeded to seat 2 other couples after us, with 10 minutes of us being seated. We had yet to see a server. An additional 10 minutes later, the server approaches the two tables seated after us and took their drink/appetizer orders. He then makes his way over to us and we order everything, since we were ready, at this point. He did not introduce himself and he assumed like we would like to be treated as his friends. Needless to say, our food arrived later than the other 2 and my Caesar salad was made incorrectly, on top of bad service. I was UPSET! The atmosphere was loud and not what I was used to after visiting the Anaheim and Beverly Hills locations. I will never eat here again. The steaks were superb, but the service SUCKED...big time!
