We were looking for a special evening to celebrate our 43rd anniversary and Ruth Chris's in PD came through for us as usual. COVID could not ruin our effort either as Ruth Chris's had wonderful outdoor dining with very comfortable spacing. The service was outstanding too. Our server did all she could to make our every choice perfect. The night and food was totally awesome.

We called the day before to see if our reservations allowed happy hour and we were told yes. If we had known there was no happy hour we may have made other arrangements. Sort of seemed like bait and switch. The waitress didn’t bring our dessert that was included with our meal and when I asked about it she seemed put out since she took it to the wrong. Food was great but if advertised as happy hour the day before when reservations were made, they should have honored.

We received a gift card in February prior to the Covid Pandemic and were hesitant to dine out. Eight months of sequestration prompted our decision to take advantage of the patio dining. To our delight the food was delicious beyond our wildest expectation. The service was friendly and accomodating. We could not have been more pleased with our dining experience.

We love Ruth’s Chris for special occasions. We were celebrating a birthday and made our reservation. Because of Covid-19 restrictions, we ate outside under an awning. The wind kicked up and it was a little wild, but Leanne our server was great and kept things running smoothly. Dinner was delicious.

Ruth’s Chris has always been my favorite restaurant for American food! I stopped eating steak 14 years ago but I go there because I love their Ruth’s Chris salad, the Ahi tuna appetizer, and every single one of their sides especially the cream spinach and the sweet potato casserole. Our waitress Melissa was amazing, kind and friendly! We will be back soon!

Everything was lovely and delicious. The service was excellent. The food was the best. It was nice sitting outside. The inside was not available because of COVID restrictions but it was light, airy and so nice. It would be nice if they could open an area outside permanently because it is a bit dark inside. Overall A+

As always, great food & service.
The wait was a little more than usual, but I can only imagine delays take place when your business has to set up shop outside again due to a moron governor and his color coded nonsensical guidelines for the plandemic. But the food never dissapoints.

My boyfriend and I had made a reservation on a Friday night. We ended up waiting an additional 20 minutes. Our server was serving a large party and kept forgetting about us. The food was disgusting. I ordered the lobster Mac and Cheese and it was just pasta sitting in milk with huge chunks of lobster. My boyfriend ordered the Sea Bass . He got a block of fish that was under cooked even though it was suppose to be a fully cooked. Will not be coming back!

Knowing it was my birthday and we had just gotten married, the staff gave us a fabulous private table with decorations on the table and a complimentary cheesecake that was fabulous and adorable. The food and service provided us with the most perfect evening of celebrations.

The "Ruth's Classics" are a great deal and provides a prefixed menu where you receive an app, filet (3 choices) and side!

Steaks were cooked perfectly. The Seafood tower is bigger than you think!

We sat outside and our food came quickly, before we even had a couple sips of wine. The cooling fan in the tent cooled the food too quickly. The quality of the petite filet was substandard . Gristly and chewy , not tender like other premium steakhouses . Ordered medium and it came medium rare . Waited 10 minutes for the waitress as we needed salt and pepper for the baked potato .
$300 bill with $80 bottle of wine and a disappointing experience. Not really Ruth Cris worthy .

Everything was great except that we had a reservation and still had to wait half an hour before being seated. Our server, Samantha was great. The calamari was awful. Tasted like it had been sitting for a long time. Everything else was great.

This was our 2nd time coming here and our first time since Covid that we’ve been out on a date. We were extremely surprised to have the private dining room! What an awesome gesture for our date night. Nico was our server and he was very gracious as well. The food was absolutely amazing!!!! We can’t wait until our next visit.
