This was an unusual visit to Ruth's Chris. This particular visit I enjoyed a NY Strip prepared medium-rare. The flavor was as delicious as ever and served sizzling, as always. Unfortunately, we must have gotten the rare cut that was below Ruth's Chris normal standard. Our steak was tough and chewy as a result of the significant fat, grizzle, etc. While this may happen at times, I will give this location another chance when I am next in town.

Joseph and Hugo plus the assistants made our night smooth as could be. With a party of 9 and 3 birthdays was a tall task but they made it happen. Much appreciated. And as my wife told him, Joseph will be our requested waiter from now on seeing as he also took care of us for our anniversary dinner. Thanks fellas!!

The only problem is that the dress code that you have should be enforced. Business casual does not include cargo shorts and t-shirt. We pay extra for a nice, better than average ambiance and experience. Who wants to dress nicely only to be surrounded by people in t-shirts and shorts? Ruth's Chris should be better than this...

It was our 4yr anniversary and they took great care of us from start to finish. At checkin they acknowledged the occasion, our menus were personalized with our names and we got to keep the sheet as a momento. The table was decorated w anniversary glitter. The service was top notch constantly checking in on us and making sure we were enjoying the evening. Complimentary dessert to end the night!

Thank you to our attentive and helpful food server Jason. His outstanding service made our celebration a wonderful experience. The menu with my wife's name on it, the little birthday decorations on the table and the little birthday desert was a very nice touch.

Celebrated my parents 36th anniversary and the staff made it extra special. From checking in and being greeted by every waiter, busboy, manager and host made my parents feel extra special. The food was delish! The service from Jin was excellent! Just overall, a great night for my parents to celebrate a very special night.

Serves was slow he never came to check on our table we ordered the tomahawk steak for 2 took a long time for our salad to come out, once we're done eating our food he took another 20nin to bring our bill and the dessert it came with. By thine he came back we were ready to leave. The dessert was packed to go. When I decided to eat it, it was burnt and not good at all. Not wroth $500 we spent. I will not be returning to this location.

If you're looking for a nice, upscale restaurant to have a nice drink, share some quiet conversation, and be tended to, then this is your place. But if you're looking for quality cuisine, stay away from here. The food is horrible for the price. Rubbery crabcakes that were clearly pre-made and frozen, slathered in herb butter to cover the freezer flavor. Sinewy New York cut steak tasted like cardboard, required bleu cheese and horseradish to give it some sort of flavor. Overpriced crimini mushrooms simply sauteed in garlic butter and red wine, boring.

I've had quality steak in LA: Morton's, Lawry's, Arroyo Chop House, Parkway Grill. Frankly save your money and go to the Olive Garden instead. Ruth's Chris is a has terrible food.

Even though we had reservations; we had to wait additional 10-15 min before our table is ready. However, once we sit down; the food and service was outstanding.

The food and experience is always great. However, I had one issue. It was my dates first time at Ruth's Chris, so I requested something be written on the plate to memorialize her experience. I even received a call from a hostess to confirm my reservation and she asking to shorten what I wanted written on the dessert plate. I agreed and she came up with something, but it was never written on the plate. I don't think it ruined the night by any means, but you guys usually get it right and I was disappointed that it didn't happen. I thought it was a go, because I received a call and the hostess had it all set. I would say come up with a communication system so the person plating the dessert knows what they are supposed to do. What if someone was proposing to their girlfriend? That would not go over well. Whereas, if it goes off without a hitch, you have a married couple that will visit you for years because of their experience with you. Thank you for your time, John

I had a petite filet & lobster tail which was superb. It was the best I’ve ever had. The creamed spinach was also fantastic. The only thing that was below par was the deserts. The strawberry shortcake was too sweet, & the chocolate raspberry cake wasn’t good. The service by Joseph was superior

Attention to detail was impeccable and the food was also on point. Mentioned in my reservation that we were there to celebrate a birthday. They had confetti sprinkled on the table when we got there and the birthday boy’s menu was customized with his name and happy birthday message. Everything was perfect. Can’t wait to go back.

We've gone to Ruth's Chris numerous times throughout the years, and we were pleased to find our request for a booth was honored, our table was ready when we arrived, and our favorite server, Nicole, had been selected to take care of us. She was outstanding, as always, and we appreciated the manager checking on us shortly after our entres arrived to our table. Overall, it was a great evening.

Ruth's Chris in Pasadena has always been good, but it may be getting even better. On our last visit it was perfect. Everyone and everything were in top form. We were celebrating a birthday, so it mattered to us. I always request a special preparation of one of our favorite items (the old style of Lyonnaise Potatoes made with Russets) when I make the reservation. This time I forgot. When the restaurant called the day of my reservation to confirm, I mentioned my special request with the understanding it might not be possible on short notice. Not only was it possible, but the chef in charge took the initiative to make it a permanent note in my file. That is going the extra mile. After our last visit I am determined to have occasion to go back sooner than later.

It was definitely a great experience! I had the lobster tail and mashed potatoes, they both tasted great. I do feel the food could’ve been hotter though, the waiter said not to touch the plates because they were 500’ degrees but the food wasn’t 😩 When I go again I’m going to request blazin’ hot food. Even their wine was great I had a glass of moscato with my meal 🤩
