Ruth's Chris Steak House - Marina Del Rey
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.

We’ve been to Ruth’s Chris Steak House 50+ times and this was the first time we were disappointed overall. The 16oz rib eye was at least 25% fat, the au gratin potatoes were undercooked and the sautéed mushrooms were under seasoned. After we finished our meal, we waited 15 minutes for the waiter. He finally showed up and asked if we’d like to look at a dessert menu. We passed on dessert, gave him a credit card, paid the bill and left. Although the Marina del Rey Ruth’s Chris Steak House is a ten-minute walk from our home, we will probably go out of our way to to eat at a different Ruth’s Chris Steak House in the future if at all.
We enjoyed our dinner quite a bit. We ordered two 11oz filets which were prepared as requested (one a bit more done than rare, the other medium rare). We had them hold the butter. We should also have asked them to hold the pepper too, because the steaks were seasoned pretty strongly with pepper (at least the spice tasted like pepper -- we didn't ask what it really was). Maybe if we had kept the butter, the spice wouldn't have seemed so strong. Nonetheless, the steaks were quite good with the spice; it's just that we thought we'd enjoy them more without it.
We also ordered two lobster bisques which were quite good and each included a few small pieces of lobster. In addition, we ordered regular fries (pretty good; not great), broccoli (pretty good), fruit and ice cream for desert (meager portion of fruit; large portion of ice cream), and a very reasonably priced bottle of wine. The meal started with some hot bread and butter.
The server and staff were outstanding.
We'd come back again.
This was my first time in a Ruth’s Chris restaurant. Nice quiet place. Dimly lit. Damian was awesome, funny guy and knew his stuff. Great experience. I’ll be back soon.
Great food and great service!
Three of us went for the last 1/2 hr of Happy Hour & had great appetizers & service in the bar. Also had dinner in the dining room and were all very pleased with our food and service. It was a birthday and Hugh attended to us quite nicely.
My experience was outstanding from the start. It was my mother’s 80th birthday, and we were a party of 4 with reservations. The hostess acknowledged it right away. Our table was decorated with birthday confetti, and my mother received a “Happy Birthday” menu. Ruth Chris steaks never disappoint. I usually frequent the NYC midtown location, and this was my first trip to this location. The steaks were perfectly cooked to our specifications. The BBQ shrimp and calamari appetizers were fabulous; both cooked in sauces that I have never tasted before. The creamed spinach, the lobster m&c, broccoli, and baked potato were outstanding. To end the meal they Gabe my mother carrot cake with a candle, and “Happy Birthday [name]” spelled out in chocolate sauce at the top of her dessert plate. The waitress was very attentive, as was the manager, without being intrusive. I was also pleased to see several people of color at the front of the house. The decor was interesting and very pretty. Ruth Chris is no doubt VERY pricey, but we left there not regretting a single dollar spent!
Was seated and greeted by waiter. Told him we were not ready to order. Did not come back to our table for 20 minutes but had time to flirt with the people behind our table numerous times. When he did return I asked for the check for the sparkling water he did bring out.
Very Late Valentines Day Celebration for my Fiancé and I.
Algunas regras en la recepción me parecen muy raras, en el cumpleaño de mi hija no he podido sentar en la mesa antes de su llegada ( era para ser sorpresa) porque las regras es que solo pueden sentar todos de una sola vez !
Además de esta falta de tacto y falta de simpatia de esta gente de la recepción la comida es muy buena.
Celebrated my birthday with dinner here. We requested John Henry's service area and as usual we were very happy with his attentiveness and service. Our meals and drinks were excellent.
Really took care of our Birthday Girl, from the customized menu to the happy birthday song. Our waiter, Damian, was the absolute best and really took care of us and the managers also came by to give birthday wishes.
The Ruth Chris in Marina Del Rey is always on point! The food and service was amazing as always!
My boyfriend ordered the New York steak & I ordered the Petite filet with shrimp. Both medium plus with the garlic crust seasoning . The meat was very flavorful & easy to chew. We ordered the lobster Mac & cheese, mashed potatoes & calamari as sides. The calamari wasn’t that great, but the mashed potatoes & lobster mac & cheese were very tasty. The only thing I didn’t like is that they sold us a $15 retail valued bottle of Moscato for $48 dollars “La perlita” to be exact. Overall great experience to celebrate a special occasion, we celebrated my boyfriends birthday here.. spent about $250 for two.
Food took a long time to come out but server was excellent.
Mo was a great server and the GM made his rounds - meal was awesome !!! Lighting great - Ambience great !!!
Excellent restaurant with great service, great location!
The servers were super pushy. It was very unbecoming Of the experience I’m used to at Ruth’s Chris. I’m a frequent diner at RC and Was dissapointed. Never feel this way at Beverly Hills. Only at Marina del Rey.
This was my aunty’s celebration of life and the staff made it a very memorable and lovely night. Thank you so much for doing what you did and we will be back for more.
Excellent service. We went there for our anniversary and was so pleased with our decision. Everyone went out of their way to make sure everything was in order.
The steak was superb, melted in your mouth. However, our waiter was subpar. He was inattentive. The simple aspects of a meal that should be standard as keeping water glasses full, and checking in with the customer to ensure the meal was going well were a miss. The management was friendly and welcoming.
Way too loud to have a nice focused dinner. The crab legs were not very good and the serving size was a bit small for the price. Probably not going to go hear for anything except Happy Hour...maybe
We truly appreciate your feedback because it helps us improve. This is not at all the experience we aim to provide. So we can learn more, please consider sending us your contact information, including a phone number. Thank you!
Great experience, great host and manager. Will definitely visit again.
My family and I celebrated my daughter’s 18th birthday there and we had an amazing experience. I think my favorite part is that we felt welcome from the time we arrived until the time we left. I even had my two year old grandchild with me and the staff was accommodating enough to change our seat to accommodate a high chair instead of a booster seat. We will definitely return, wait only one suggestion maybe a chicken finger option to the kids menu! Ok that’s it two thumbs up for Ruth Chris.
Absolutely amazing everything literally and it wasn’t loud it was perfect and the service was the best I’ve ever had too.
The steak and lobster was better tasting than Boa, Mastros, and Bandera. The price point was right too! I highly recommend
Hands down the best experience & treatment I’ve received from a restaurant. Thank you Eric Damien , & Brett for the superb customer service , great convo , & attentiveness that you provided. Every restaurant should have a team that consist of you all combined.
We had a great Valentine's dinner. We request to be seated in John Henry's area and we're never disappointed. Great service and recommendations.
Valentines Day was a great time here!
I had a great time and we really enjoyed our food.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal, evening and experience. The staff and manager were very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely refer people and patronize it more times
Ruth’s Chris in Marina del Rey is my restaurant of choice when celebrating special occasions with my husband, family and friends. Great service and accommodations. Highly recommend you experience the same!
Everything was fine. Great environment. Great food. Great service.
Had an amazing time with amazing service from Erica.
The experience was ok but me and my other 2 friends all got sick off the food.
Food safety is of utmost importance to us, and what you have described is concerning. Please reach out to us directly with your contact information, including a phone number, so we may look into this incident further. Thank you.
I have been to high-end steak houses around the country -- I have to say Ruth's Cris falls somewhere in the middle to low end of the spectrum. Very, very pricey considering the portion sizes. We celebrated my birthday there Sunday night and with tip the bill was nearly $450 for 2 adults and 3 kids. No one had any alcohol -- my dessert was free (thank you) and the kids split one more.
Thank you for your feedback. We hold ourselves to the highest brand standards for food quality, atmosphere and service. We do hope you'll consider giving us a second chance to make a great impression. Should you wish to discuss your concerns in greater detail, please with your contact information including a phone number.
Great service! Great food!
Had reservations. Was told there would still be a wait for 15-20 mins. Once we complained they put us in the bar area. Explained to the server that we have an issue with our steaks being cooked incorrect. He assured us that they wouldn’t make the same issue. Steaks came out wrong. Manager came over and apologized. And we waited an additional 21 mins for the issue to be rectified. Horrible experience.
We sincerely apologize not everyone's steak arrived perfectly prepared. Would you please consider sending us an private message about this? We would welcome the chance to make things better. Please reply to us directly with your contact information, including a phone number. Thank you!
Everything was amazing!
