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 🤩

My wife and I had a great night out. We fully enjoyed our meal. The staff did everything possible to ensure that our experience was special. Our steaks were prepared exactly as requested and the sides and dessert were great. We plan to return.

Could not have been happier. Went for our 40th wedding anniversary and, from the moment we were greeted at reception through the service of our dessert, each person at Ruth's both congratulated us and served us exceedingly well. Even the menu congratulated us!

Readers, of course, want to know how the food and service were. The food was as good as one could expect and, actually, pretty fairly priced. We have paid almost the same amount to dine in other Pasadena establishments where the food is nowhere near the quality of Ruth's As for the service, it was excellent. Attentive, prompt but not rushed in any regard.

Ruth's has always met our expectations, especially the one in Pasadena. Will come back again soon and may even go to another Ruth's when we are out of town this weekend.

Their pre-fixe menu has changed so my favorite salad was gone and less dessert options. I requested a substitute from creamed spinach to grilled asparagus. I believe they were the same price. However we were charged $5 and the asparagus was burnt, thin and stringy.
The service was excellent. However we got a corner table that forced the servers to keep reaching over us and we had to give them our plates, etc.
Normally I have a better experience than this time.

Your manager, Lauren Bennette, was so helpful when we were having issues with our gift card. Truly appreciate her diligence in getting the card squared away with the activation. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Had the DineLA Special menu with Salmon & the Filet Mignon with sides of Asparagus and the Creamed Spinach. Wonderful food and service by our server Patrick. He was able to handle our substitution requests graciously. A true professional. The Wine Steward recommended a great valued wine for the meal.

A great dining experience.

Ruth’s Chris is consistently great. The food never disappoints. Our waiter, David?, was wonderful. We weren’t rushed, and he made the evening special. I recommend the filet which is both tender and delicious. The numerous side dishes are also scrumptious — French fries, au gratin potatoes, sweet potatoe casserole. Yes, I like potatoes! The grilled asparagus was the healthy addition to the meal which was also tasty.

Ruth's Chris had a great Dine in LA menu. The five of us enjoyed our selections. We submitted an advance request for the old style bread pudding, which they graciously accommodated. We think they have the best Rib Eye.

Went for the dineLA dinner special. The options provided were perfect for both of us; one had salmon and the other filet mignon. We always enjoy meals at this location and will be returning...hopefully sometime soon.

So much more than just an amazingly delicious meal!! I cannot day enough about our dinner at Ruth’s Chris Pasadena! From the greeting staff to the bar tender to our wait staff we had impeccable service with kindness and care. Francis and Jeremy who took care of us at dinner were above and beyond amazing. I cannot thank them enough for making this night special. The food - do I even need to say?! The steak - melts like butter in your mouth. My shrimp & steak were perfectly seasoned and cooked and I still salivate remembering them! And the fresh strawberry shortcake and chocolate sin were the perfect finish. But the attention to detail - from the birthday confetti on the table to a menu page wishing me a happy birthday to them even writing in chocolate(!!) Happy Birthday on the plate they brought my free birthday cupcake & ice cream on (that cupcake - O M G!!!the frosting is addictive, the cake moist and perfect!) plus the fact we never got the next course til we were ready for it(no piling up), our drinks were never empty, and there always seemed to be someone near by if we needed anything, yet we never felt bothered or watched, made for an unforgettable experience. So much more than just a good meal.

Food and service was great. There was a large party table set up next to us. Considering our reservation was early, we should have been sat away from large party.
Thank you

We were celebrating our anniversary, the staff was very attentive and friendly. Our server was friendly and informative about the menu as this was our first time dining at this establishment. The food was excellent and cooked to order, we were treated to a complimentary dessert and glass of champagne. This was a wonderful evening that we will remember.

Awesome steak, veggies, wine, service. But I had fish and I'm 100% positive the chef could've done better. Background music was sophisticated, mellow, very 60's. The crowd was comfortable being there and the room itself is well-considered. Even the calligraphy in chocolate on the dessert was expert. Except for the fish, everything was unceasingly excellent.

Three time’s a charm? No. Went to Ruth’s Chris, for what else, a great steak. The 11 oz filet was ordered medium but came out rare. The server took it back. Served a second time and it came back STILL rare—deep red like raspberry jam through the middle from top to bottom. On the third attempt it came back medium well and charred on the outside. (Which is not surprising and pretty much unavoidable: you can’t cook a thick piece of beef three times to try to bring the center up to temperature quickly each time and expect it to turn out well). The worst higher-end steakhouse steak I’ve ever had. Made me wish I had picked Mastro’s or Morton’s or Del Frisco’s instead.

The manager comped the steak part of the bill as a self-described “nice gesture” but really that’s not enough to make me feel better. If I wanted to eat a bad steak on the cheap I would just go to Sizzler. At least I wouldn’t have to wait an hour for that bad steak while my date finishes their meal and twiddles their thumbs. But that’s not what I wanted: I went to Ruth’s for a great steak. I guess I’ll have to wait to find that another night.
