It was a birthday dinner. They went out of their way to personalize the menu as well as have birthday decorations on the table. The service was warm and personable. The food was excellent. They also provided a birthday dessert. A good birthday dinner overall.

Great experience. I have dined on this day for 7 years with my son-in-law as a tradition. We miss our waiter Dave. Get him back please! The food (bone in ribeye, side of lobster tails, lobster mac & cheese, string fries and Angel City Gold Line Beer, cheese cake and banana cream pie) was excellent but not quite as sizzling as usual. Minor complaint. Service was very good, not excellent. We had such a great history with our previous waiter, might be hard to match. Cheers!!

If I could give this dinner 100 stars I would. It was a dinner to celebrate our 30th anniversary, and the night could not have been made more special. The entire staff was warm, welcoming and efficient. The food was typically delicious. And the special, thoughtful touches made it an evening to remember. I definitely recommend Ruth's Chris Pasadena!

Enjoyed another wonderful meal at Ruth's Chris in Pasadena. We both had Ruth's Classic Meal 11 oz. filet (starter, entrée, 1 side and dessert) which is a good value and delicious! Service was exceptional. Our server was Jason.

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!

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.
