This restaurant is located at the old Bankers' Club facilities in the financial sector of San Juan. It has the best city view of any restaurant in town. Ruth's Chris menu is the same just about everywhere, so you know what to expect. It is the view and the crowd - which is still the old Bankers Club crowd - what essentially makes this such a great place to have lunch or dinner. I am not sure whether the day view or the night view is the best. You will have to decide that by yourself. So, a good idea is to get there by 6:00 pm; go to the bar for drinks and watch the sunset and then stay for dinner. Believe me, it really doesn't get much better than that.

With 2 weddings going on in separate rooms, the noise from their music spilled over into the restaurant, because waiters did not close the doors between the restaurant and these rooms. The wait staff was very clumsy and showed a lack of training. Messing up orders, dropping utensils and generally not knowing what to do. This restaurant misses strong management, they don't even have a maitre"d.

La unica razon por la cual voy a este lugar es por la conveniencia de su localizacion y su vista. Tambien porque tengo esperanzas de que mejore, ya que disfruto siempre el Ruth Chris de Isla Verde, pero siempre que voy al de Hato Rey, ocurre algo. Anteriormente, trataron de servirme un vino de la misma casa que pedi, pero mucho mas economico (y cobrarme por el vino mas caro). En esta ocasion pedimos 2 fillet mignon termino medio y algunos complementos. El mesero viene con los steaks y estan completamente "well done". No me gusta devolver comida y lo evito, pero el otro filete tambien esta "well done". El filete esta incomible y si estoy dispuesto a ir a Ruth Chris y pedir un filete de $50 me lo quiero disfrutar asi es que muy amablemente se lo informamos al mesero. El mesero lo ve, se disculpa y se los lleva. Al rato regresa con 2 filetes nuevos. El mesero dice que lo cortemos y verifiquemos el termino. Esta vez los filetes estaban completamente crudos "rare", pero el mesero dice que no, que eso es "medium". Ehhh, perdon? Pero el mesero insiste que estan correctos y que son medium. Pedi hablar con el gerente y el gerente viene y sin decirle nada le pregunto que termino ve el filete, a lo que responde "rare". Al parecer, la unica persona que sabe de terminos de cocido de carne alli es el gerente, pues ni el cocinero ni el mesero saben lo que hacen! Ah, y luego de todo ese "projecto" que cambia la experiencia, ni un cafe nos ofrecen como cortesia... No creo que regrese.

My overall dining experience was good but the taste and quality of my steak was average. They couldn't get the temperature correct. I typically like my steaks Medium well closer to medium than well. My server suggested that I ordered it medium because their dishes come out on a hot plate but that was poor advice. The temperature was nowhere near my preference. My date enjoyed their dish everything came out perfect. The Remy Vsop blackberry sidecar was especially delightful.

I choose the place to celebrate my anniversary. We had to return my wife plate twice, the first time the meet was overcook and the second time completely raw. Apparently the chef doesn't know how to cook a medium steaks. At least the service was good.

We've dined here a number of times. August 1 was very disappointing. The lobster bisque had too much sherry, the salad was wilted and the calamari was chewy. The shrimp barbecue was not tasty.

Great service. Need to ensure more accuracy in serving the wines shown and more price differentiation of younger red wines versus older. First order of calamari was cold, but the waiter rapidly fixed the situation by bringing a new order. But overall, good experience and would come back again!

Food and service was previously top notch, but both have declined over the last year. On our last 3 visits, the lobster has been overcooked, we have received cold onion soup, and the drinks underfilled. In addition, the noise at the bar on this last visit was overwhelming the entire restaurant, making conversations difficult. Our request to change to a table further from the bar left us without menues for at least 30 minutes. This is unacceptable considering that the restaurant was not even close to full.

The restaurant and everything that is food and service is a classic Ruth's Chris...but the ambiance is far from desirable if your on a date or looking for a quiet meal. I went for lunch and the noise level was horrible due to amount of business people there. The view is spectacular and would try this location again but for dinner and see how it goes.

A very good dinning experience dampened by two of the least friendly hostesses. They were not very welcoming with an attitude you would expect at a cheap place, not at Ruth Chris. Fortunately, our waitress was outstanding, her name was Nanette. It was party of three and after reviewing their extensive wine list we chose a red wine from Australia which proved very good and reasonably priced. The steak was excellent, their ribeye is their best cut. The creamed spinach was quite good and a generous portion off sauteed mushrooms. For dessert we all shared the bread pudding and the pecan pie, both prepared to perfection. The table was situated right next to the waiters station and some waiters were noisier than others.

Excellent steak with a view. Always top quality in meats. Side dishes are perfect. This is the only penthouse view steakhouse in San Juan. Very easy access and parking. The wine list is very good and surprisingly affordable. Let's hope they keep it that way.
