Table was ready. We had plenty of time to enjoy appetizers and entrees (we both ordered more than we could eat) before walking down the street to see Itzach Perlman perform with the Oregon Symphony

We ate in the bar at a window table. The chairs were disgusting. They all need to be recovered. The restaurant is really run down.

Usually a 5 star experience, but we felt rushed by our server this time, who wasn't super personable like our experience with all the other staff in the past. We were asked if we needed boxes 3-4 times while we were eating our entrees and asked if we were ready for dessert 2 times before we finished our entrees. This is not our typical experience, so we will be back, but this was a bummer because we were celebrating something special and wanted a little more time to enjoy our meal and the moment.

We were there celebrating our seventh wedding anniversary. We have gone to Ruth’s Chris every year for our wedding anniversary. This year everything was great except my husband and I cannot hold a conversation because we would’ve had to screamed to be able to hear each other. This is the first year this happened. So we had a very quiet seventh anniversary dinner.

We planned a trip back to Portland all the way from Canada around this meal and were NOT disappointed!

40oz Porterhouse and lamb chops fed our family of four.

Just perfect!

They were out of Scalloped Potatoes, Shoe String French Fries, Remoulade Salad Dressing and ran out of Diet Coke refills. ????? Weirdest experience ever at this location. Then my steak showed up and it was over cooked. Meh. The waiter said it was because it was late. Our reservation was at 8pm. Like I said it was a weird experience.

The steak was perfect. Cooked just right and hot. The service was wonderful and no complaints. The manager came by and checked on us and the seating location was great.
The lobster bisque was just warm, (I prefer my soup hot), but it was fine. The wedge salad was great and the au gratin potatoes were perfect. We also had the crab cakes and they were wonderful as well.

Maybe because it was Christmas eve that made it disappointing. Had reservations at 745, checked in at 740. We were told there was a 20 min wait, no problem. Didn't get seated until 830. Ordered 4 appetizers (calamari ~ excellent, ravioli ~ ok, shrimp cocktail ~ ok) last one not served, waiter's mistake. Bbq shrimp was very good after it arrived 15 min later. Raspberry and rosemary cosmos were excellent. Ordered wedge salad with vinegar. Received a vinegrette. Took 20 min to get it taken care of. Dinner order was 1 petite filet med rare. Served rare. Ordered 1 2-4oz petite filet with shrimp med oscar style. Served correctly. Order 1 2-4oz herb crusted med (to share with husband) served rare, maybe med rare. My daughter ordered petite filet with blue cheese topping med well, delivered med rare. After 15 min or so waiter came to check on us and we sent back 2 orders. Came back with med steak cooked well and the 2nd 4oz didn't come back at all. Daughter's also came back but was still too rare for her liking. Son ordered chicken and it was perfect. There were at least 3 tables seated after us that were either finishing and leaving or getting dessert by the time our dinner arrived at 1030. This was my first time at Ruth's Chris and maybe I expected too much, but it seems to me that if you are spending over $100 per person it should be better than Red Robin or Shari's.

Terrible. 3 out of 6 steaks served way under cooked. Took 20+ minutes to reserve them and then over cooked and others were done with their meals. All sides were then cold. Just a terrible experience. Chain restaurant and a low budget meal at a 4 star price. Skip it!

Wrong time of year! Upstairs extremely noisy and over crowded. Steak received way overdone, sent back. Server very gracious about re-doing, but we made mistake of letting what we had already served ourselves of the sides be returned with the steaks. Basically, we shorted ourselves on veggies, our own fault! Will go back, but probably for happy hour, and not on a holiday!

Everything was perfect. Our table was festooned with birthday confetti. Everyone from the hostess to the bus people to our waiter were just the right amount of friendly without being unprofessional. The food was perfect. The wine and drinks were perfect. And the special birthday dessert was to die for. Thanks again, Ruth’s Chris for another scrumptious birthday dinner. You never fail me.

This isn't the first time I have dined here and actually several times over the many years it's been in Portland. Unfortunately the last few years I have been astonished at the terrible service from the front desk when you arrive and the tardiness to seat you on time when your reservation is set. The noise level at this restaurant is beyond the bounds of what I would consider social. The tables are squeezed so tight together if you're at a table for two that it's impossible to hear your dinner guest. Even though I asked for a quiet table I received a seat nestled between several other tables and what appear to be some type of Celebration where people were rudely loud and obnoxious. As far as the table service it took moments to get water but I had to ask twice to receive bread and butter. It took almost 30 minutes to get our order and because of the busyness of the restaurant that evening I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get out of there on time because of an event that evening we had planned. The food was fair at best. My fish was overcooked and did not have any time to return it and receive a new entree so I bucked up and ate it. I expect a lot more from a Ruth's Chris and unfortunately the Portland location fall short in many ways comparatively to other locations around the country. Not sure what has happened here in the last couple years but will not be returning until something changes.

The service in the bar was horrible. Our server was very busy and because we were younger it was assumed we wouldn’t be spending as much as the slightly older table we were clearly not a priority. Waiting 15 minutes for our drink order and then another 10 minutes for our drinks vs the other table who was seated after us and got their drinks before us. This is very disappointing on many levels. We will not be going back.

I want to start by saying I have ate at this franchise many times but never at this location. Before this I have always had pleasant experiences. A business associate and I made last minute reservations for two at 9:45. We arrived around 9:35. The host checked us in and said they would seat us closer to our reservation time. We sat in the waiting area as many patrons left the establishment so we thought they should have a table ready for us soon since were were the only ones in the waiting area. Around 10:00 a group of four came in and briefly stood in the waiting area. To my surprise the host then proceeded to sit this group before us even though we had been waiting almost 30 minutes and it was 15 minutes past our reservation time. I walked up to the host desk around 10:05 and said I wanted to check in again since we had a reservation for 9:45 and still had not been seated. He said that we were next to be seated as soon as the other host came back. We were seated a couple minutes after.
After being seated it took our server at least 10 minutes to greet us, take our drink order and bring us water. At this point I was feeling a little upset with the way they seemed to have kept forgetting about us but I kept a positive attitude put in an order for a blackberry sidecar (same thing I always get) and my associate ordered a coke. It took a while to get our drinks and by the time we finally had a glass of water to quench or thirst we were ready to order.
I ordered the barbecue shrimp for an appetizer. For my meal I got the 11 oz filet cooked medium. My associate ordered the surf and turf with the bone in filet medium and the twin lobster. We got a side of mashed potatoes and sweet potatoe casserole. The appetizer arrived pretty quickly and was good. The rest of the meal took forever but it was all very delicious. When we were finished just like everything else it took forever to pay our bill and get out of there. Altogether we ending up sitting there over 2 hours!

Dinner was great. Service was a little slow. There was a large table behind us - 20 people or so- that was VERY loud. They were celebrating an office holiday party which was great, but the noise level was such that it was difficult to hear anything else. Even our server apologized for the noise. Not sure we would return.
