This is the second time we’ve picked Ruth’s Chris for our wedding anniversary dinner and each time has been amazing. We had the filet, lamb chops, cesar salad, calamari, Brussels sprouts and cheesecake. Everything was so good. We’re not waiting for our anniversary dinner next time and plan to be back very soon.

Asked for a quiet table but we were seated among other tables. The restaurant was busy and noisy. We did not enjoy the easy conversation we anticipated due to the noise. Would not recommend for a quiet dinner with friends.

I go to Ruth's Chris about 2 to 3 times a year and usually have nothing to complain about. Food is always tasty and service mostly pleasant. The evening I went, the server, Sonia, was very polite and checked on us a couple times. I usually bring a bottle of wine and am aware of the corkage fee. At the end of the evening, when Sonia handed us our bill, she said she waived the corkage fee. We were in shock since nothing like this happened to us. We did not complain about the service, nor the food as they were both good. She just said not to worry about it. We just thought that was really nice of her to do and commend her for her service.

This is my favorite restaurant for a reason. I almost cried when my best friend told me the restaurant couldn’t accommodate the number of friends who were joining us for my birthday celebration the next day (that I would drive two hours for) . In the end, out of desperation my best friend told them how unreasonable I was, how I would not go anywhere else, and they graciously increased the reservation. It was the perfect dinner.

I was there few days ago to celebrate my birthday with my daughter, and I just wanted to say:
Thank you for decorating our table for my birthday, and great food, but what I've loved the most, it was the service provided by Garey, he was very attentive, friendly and professional.
Been to many places before including your Pasadena location many times in the past, but that night I was really impressed with Garey's service, he is the best server I've ever seen so far from all the places.

While not a true “special occasion” it was a dinner with my daughters (one of which goes to college out of state). She and I both ordered filets medium. The first one came out and it was rare. The manager offered to have it re-fired (in fact he insisted). It took a while and when it came back it had the right color but the flavor was off. It tasted like day old reheated meat. I sent it back. By this time my girls were already almost finished. I did not want to have to wait longer so they took it off the bill. The staff was courteous but I was steak less 😪. Ruth’s Chris is my favorite steak house. Their quality is usually good regardless of location. I was very disappointed with this experience and it may be a while before I head back to this location.

Overall very good. However, we wanted to sit at a window seat and there were three to four window seats available they refused to consider seating at a window seat. That started the visit on a sour note since we could sit at a window. The waiter started out great, particularly with wine service where he offered me the opportunity to simple two wines to make a decision on which one was the most suitable, which was outstanding. However, as the evening went forward I advised him that we had a ballet to attend that evening and things just started to slow down service wise. When I finally got his attention, his comment I'll get around to it, which I didn't think was the appropriate thing to say. Both my date and I not pleased with his comment but I did realize his was very busy with several guests that evening. For the price, the service needs to be exceptional. It was almost there but not quite. Luckily, we made the ballet on time but with a minute to spare.

I felt hurried by our waiter who interrupted too often. He was friendly as was the other wait staff but I felt that there was a rush to order food. Also, my New York strip steak was "chewy" and I had a time cutting it with my steak knife. I took half home and frankly, it was better the next day.

If you want a great steak perfectly cooked and excellent, even ebullient service, this is the place. With it weren't so pricey, and I also wish they'd reinstate their Wednesday no-corkage-fee.

We had a great time celebrating a birthday. Our waiter Jason was friendly and funny and added little touches that made us all happy and kept the celebratory mood going.

Other waiters even helped out as needed, making us feel like we were the most important guests in the restaurant.

As always, I get the best steaks here -- we have always stuck to the red meat and hence unable to comment on other options - the mashed potatoes were good nothing to rave or complain about -- but the asparagus (pricey) but were the absolute best we have ever had - oh the piping hot bread was replenished right away .. service as always was par excellence -- my family's fav spot for a great steak :)

We were there 20 min before but did not seat in until 30 min. after our reserved time. Reception personnel was not friendly at all. their tone was rude. Service was very slow and waiter even forgot it was my wife's birthday. other table got their birthday treat but not us. I felt like second class citizen there.
