I had the 12 ounce ribeye which I did not find to be that flavorful . Two of us ordered the same thing on our table it arrived on a plate that was sizzling hot and greasy. This was not what I expected at all I’m not sure how it was prepared seemed like that was fried in a skillet to me .

Our dining experience was exceptional. We were impressed by the food and wine knowledge of our waiter Joshua! He was very attentive and suggested the best pairings of sides and wine for our steaks! The food was so good! Ambiance was exquisite. Perfect date night for two!

Service was good, but too slow. There were other groups of 3, 1, 4 & 6 in the same room, we were the 2nd been seated, but didn’t get service until all other tables were served for some reason.

Our server David was wonderful. It made our Mother's Day celebration even more of a joy. The food was wonderful as usual. The Chilean Sea Bass was lovely. And of course, the steaks were amazing, as usual. We will return

Made RSVP for 5pm but we checked in around 4:35 and got seated in about 10 min! Service was great and food was excellent like usual. We ordered the filet and lobster tails, ribeye, Chilean sea bass, creamy spinach, au gratin potatoes, and cheesecake! Steaks were both on point! Ribeye had perfect seasoning! Lobster tails were more on the salty side but balanced it with the sea bass and au gratin. Spinach and au gratin are always my fav sides. As well as the cheesecake which is a must for me! The moms got a rose at the end of the service celebrating Mother’s Day which was a nice sweet touch.

Great atmosphere and friendly service. The food was delicious. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is that the food came out a little late, but it was understandable considering it was mother’s day. However, management made up for it with a complementary dessert.

Food was good but in my opinion, there are a lot of butter. (Even for the ribeye). I didn’t expect that. Cooked as ordered. Medium rare is med rare, medium is medium. Broccoli was over cooked. But crab stack and crab cake was good. Is great food but I would rather have less butter.

The calamari is a soggy mess. Tossing what was light, crispy calamari with "a sweet and spicy Asian chili sauce" effectively ruins the texture. The lobster bisque was served in a very shallow bowl, which is the norm wherever you go, but the amount was so sparse that I had to tilt the bowl on the first taste just to get a spoonful. My kids and I were thinking that maybe since we were one of the first tables for the evening, they might have been worried about having enough for the rest of the night? The runner who picked it up did not have the customer in mind when he allowed that small of an amount for 11.5 dollars end up on my table. The bisque also tasted watered down compared to previous visits to this and other Ruth's Chris locations. We ordered four filets, medium, and they ALL came with a raw, red center, not the pink center we were expecting. But the raw center was not just the very center, but more than two-thirds of the cut of meat. Very disappointing. Our server, runners, and hosts were very attentive and treated us nicely, that is why I didn't bring up any issues there. I didn't want to ruin the rest of their shift with them having to argue with the kitchen and/or possibly getting "taxed" for sending something back; I also didn't want them to think me and my daughters are needy. That is the reason for 5 stars for service but 2 for food and the value rating suffered as a result. I will not be back to this location.

My experience with Ruth’s Chris was always pleasant, however this time was different. I booked the dinner for my mother’s birthday, to keep it short, the service was pretty bad & who would bring the birthday cake to the table while the birthday person was still in the restroom? The birthday dinner was pretty ruined.

I thought the service was amazing! i was disappointed in the food though, I thought the Age Raughtin potatoes were hard and my steak was way over cooked so they got me a new one. I asked for Medium Rare and it came out purple and there was a lot of gristle. The service made it worth it to come back and try again, but was disappointed that the food didnt live up to the standards everyone talks about. Our bill was 328.00 for 2 people so i feel like it was not worth the price with how my food came out.

My family and I made a 3:00 pm reservation for Easter Sunday at the Pasadena location. First off, this location is beautiful and all of the staff were friendly and very attentive. Our server was Joseph. He gave us great service and was very nice. We were a party of six so between all of us we got to try a lot of different things off the menu. The crab stuffed mushrooms are a must! They also had a special for surf and turf that day that two of my family members loved. Overall we had a great holiday experience and would definitely return!

The food was amazing, but the service left a bit to be desired. They were very slow to bring us water, and didn't even clear an empty plate from the crowded table when they came to check on us. I think they realized we were a bit unhappy and made up for it later on, but the impression had been made. Once again, though, the food was awesome. Especially my filet wrapped in blue cheese crumble!
