The quality of food and service can’t be beat! I won’t mention the other steakhouse across the street hat has taken a nose dive in quality of food. I can’t wait to return!

They were very good about setting up the table with proper decorations (in our case it was an anniversary). They were very polite and showed us to our table right away. Unfortunately, my wife had to brush off crumbs of her seat, I would have thunk they would have done that when cleaning the tables. Secondly, I would have thought the greeter would have helped my wife brush off the crumbs rather than waiting for my wife to finish brushing off the crumbs. The waiter was great and very attentive. We both ordered the cucumber and tomato salad, but the salad came without cucumbers. The salad dressing was great and it was very tasteful. The steaks were cook correctly and it was delicious. The garlic mashed potato seem to lack punch, maybe a bit more garlic would have helped. Strawberry shortcake was sweet and delicious. No issues with our check.

Great overall, just disappointed in the lighting when the sunlight went down. Went a little too dark for my liking.

1. Lobster Mash came out cold. 2. Medium Temp Steak came out rare. 3. Empty glasses not removed from table.

The worse thing: kitchen doesn't know how to prepare a steak....they took back my rare steak to get it to the right temp. When they brought it back out, the temp was correct BUT they forgot to account for the 5 minute rest time...as a result by the time i started to eat the steak it was well done (grey on the inside). These are fundamentals. Get a new chef.

Excellent meal but really poor service. Also, although the restaurant has a posted dress code, it isn’t enforced so that in spite of the fine dining label, far too many patrons looked dressed for the beach. Overall a disappointment.

I was very disappointed in dinner. First of all, drinks were SO EXPENSIVE ... 2 drinks were 1/3 of our bill. Really, $35 for a glass of wine????? $25 for a double well drink!?! Second, I ordered the 'meal special', when I said I wanted the cauliflower for the side dish, I was told "we are sold out of cauliflower", seriously our dinner reservation was at 630pm on a friday night?!???? I asked for asperagus instead and was told I would have to pay extra for that? Really? Like your prices aren't high enough, you couldn't of offered me a side for FREE, which should have been offered as a substitute when you are out of something. I will never go back again ... food was just ok ... nothing spectacular, especially for what we paid. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!

We were in Portland for a conference at the Downtown Hilton. Ruth Chris is right across the street. We are from Louisiana, and dine at Ruth Chris whenever we have an opportunity. The Portland location did not disappoint. Great food and friendly staff.

Ruth's Chris is constant and you receive what you expect, great beef and excellent service. The three in our party ordered filet's served on the traditional hot, hot plate simmering in butter... oh so good. Potatoes Au gratin , toasted brown as requested and young asparagus were complements to our dinner. I'm gland fine wine is offered by the glass. Deserts and coffee were a nice indulgence completing dinner. If fine beef is your thing I recommend Ruth's highly.

First, Ruth Chris is one of our favorite steakhouses. We go 5-6 times a year. Night before last was a unfortunate aberration. The appetizer shrimp cocktail was delivered with translucent, raw shrimp. I was told they are “made to our specs.” I rejected that and asked for them to be made properly. 5-6 minutes later a steaming set of translucent shrimp were brought to our table. Again I rejected them. I told the server, “RC has its roots in Louisiana, my mother grew up in Louisiana and I have made many trips to Louisiana. These are not properly made. I cancelled them and awaited out 40oz. tomahawk rib eye. Out came a 22oz. cowboy size rib eye. They offered to get it right. I thought about the time involved in recooking a 40oz. steak and just agreed to keeping the smaller steak. Our sides were comped, but the damage my birthday dinner was already made!

I was entertaining a friend and could not have been more pleased with the evening. The service was impeccable and I’m just so sorry that I can’t recall the name of our primary server and his associates. I’d give more than five stars if I could.

This Ruth’s Chris was good, especially because of the service, generous pour, and quality of the food preparation. However, the ambiance and noise level were not up to my expectations based on other experiences at other Ruth’s Chris restaurants.

The staff was great. I mistakenly shorted the reservation by one person and although it was a busy period, the hostess quickly made some seating adjustments. The waiter, Justin, was completely professional without being stuffy and personable without hovering and being overly talkative. He made great recommendations on food and didn't just pick the most expensive items on the menu. The food arrived quickly and was cooked perfectly. The steaks lived up to the Ruth's Chris reputation and the sweet potato casserole was fantastic but should seriously be listed on the dessert menu.

Establishment is very nice. Server was very professional, but little when it comes to personality. One in our party received a poor steak, it was a very fatty filet. Server got a manager to come over to table. The restaurant did the right thing and comped the steak, but why did such a poor cut get to table at all?
Was told this was one of their test restaurants. Test failed.

Our bill (my wife and I) was $220. That is a bit more then we would usually spend on a Friday night out. That being said, it was worth the additional cost. We would normally go to Portland city grill or Mortan’s. While both of those places are delicious and cost effective, I would recommend Ruth’s Chris as I nice change of pace. The lobster Mac and cheese is the most “worth it” item on the menu. If you could only order one side/appetizer it is the obvious winner hands down. It will leave a bigger impression then anything else regarding your meal experience. Thank me later.

My out of town friends and I went to Ruth's Chris for their last night in town and were not disappointed! The restaurant itself is beautifully unique, the staff was friendly and helpful, the drinks excellent, and the steaks cooked to perfection!

If you want a great steak, you can't go wrong!

Food. Great. Server. Great. Always a great experience in the restaurant. I’m a loyal Ruth Chris customer but this time I found damage to car via their valet and the response time in resolving the issue has been disappointing slow. If I parked my own car, it’s 5-star experience. Will always stay loyal though. Thanks to Raul and staff for providing a great birthday for my wife!

My experience at Ruth's Chris was overall enjoyable. It was my first time and we were celebrating my wife's birthday. I ordered a Caesar Salad, a 16 oz. Ribeye, and a Baked Potato with water and Coke on the side (no alcohol, although they had a wide selection). I also had the Strawberry shortcake. The food was overall very pleasing, my steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned well (a little heavy). The salad was good, not great, as was the baked potato but they were priced fairly and as I expected. My wife had a Petite Filet and shrimp, with a house salad and garlic mashed potatoes. Her experience was similar (outstanding steak, great shrimp, wonderful potatoes and an average salad). Our waiter, Raul, was fantastic. Helpful, patient and not overly friendly. Thank You Ruth's Chris.

We arrived earlier than our reservation but were seated immediately. We had a wonderful server that was attentive and informed us of the options available for our meal.
The preparation was perfect. The valets were quick and friendly too.

Had early dinner before show. From the hostess to the server the service and attention to detail was over the top. Our waiter Paul was like no other making sure all our needs were met, knowledgeable of the wines, and made us feel like part of the Ruth Chris family. Steaks were cooked to perfection!!
Highly recommend for top notch service and quality of the food!!

Steaks were very good! We both ordered Loaded Baked potatoes that were served under cooked and cool. They took them back but by the time the new ones were served we were nearly done with the meal. Considering the final bill, a bit disappointing.
