Great overall experience! Service, Patrick and his assistant, were outstanding and food delicious. Prices, especially when ordering the pre-fixed meals, were very reasonable considering you know the quality of food you are getting and type of restaurant you are heading to.

Great food and excellent service! We enjoyed the chef’s choice pre fixe menu which was good value. About $56 for starter, main (11 oz fillet), side, and dessert. Joseph was our waiter and he was very professional and lovely.

Don't waste ur money on the kids menu. We have tried it twice and both times they failed miserably. The first time I ordered my daughter's steak med and it was burned to a crisp. The took it back and said they would fix it but by the time they brought it my daughter had already eaten half my steak and wasn't hungry. The next visit we ordered it again and this time it was cooked ok but it was cold. They said they would fix it and they brought it out rare. And again my daughter had eaten half of my steak and was full. Also my regular waiter which i requested was not there. They should have called me and let me know. Overall I was disappointed this time around. I will be trying other steak houses...

When I’m spending 50 bucks for a steak, 10 bucks for broccoli, 25 bucks for a glass of wine, I fully expect my bread to be warm. Their food is very decent. For the prices they are charging, they are obviously selling an experience. If you are selling an experience, then provide the experience.
Another way to think about it. If I went to outback, cold bread would not be an issue. That’s what I would expect from them. That’s not what I expect from RC.

Not our first time here, it’s my favorite restaurant in Pasadena. My partner and I have dinner here many times. We love the wine tastings. The occasion for this visit was my Birthday, which is the day after Christmas. Our waiter was Hugo who we have met before. Hugo along with his table staff made my Birthday very special. The food was amazing as always.

Always enjoy dining at Ruth's Chris in Pasadena, California. My husband and I had Christmas Day dinner there and was not disappointed. Even though the restaurant staff were working on a special holiday, the service was superb and the food was better than ever! We truly enjoyed our meal and quiet conversation without children running around or screaming as they may do at other restaurants. This was the first time that we had fish instead of meat at this restaurant for our main course and it won't be the last! The Chilean Sea Bass is worthy of the highest compliments! Thank you for a great Christmas meal!

I come to Ruth’s Chris often for business dinners and their wine pairings. Christmas Eve family dinner may not have been the best choice. We waited 40 minutes over our reservation time and was told it would be only about 10 minutes over. We were given no update on the further delay. However, our server, Roger, was phenomenal and very attentive despite the craziness. The drinks and food were amazing and my kids were thrilled. It was a nice way to kick off our Christmas Eve celebration.

We dined with close friends of ours (2 couples total). We both got the tomahawk steak. The menu stated 40oz steak. Ours was proportionately smaller than theirs. So if ours was 40 oz. theirs must have been 50 oz? Excuse the sarcasm, but if you serve two steaks that are the same at least make sure they are the same size. We did not get full with our steak and even asked for more bread just to get full. We have had the same dinner at another RC and enjoyed it emensely and could not even finish it because we were so stuffed. The lobster tail was so small that it was more like a piece of jumbo shrimp. So the value did not meet our expectations this time. We will probably visit another location the next go around or just go to Fleming’s or Morton’s instead.
