We enjoyed an excellent meal for a holiday birthday celebration before a show. Our experience at the Portland OR Ruth's Chris was simply outstanding, everything from the service, atmosphere and quality of the food. Yes, we knew it would be expensive, but WTH - you can't take it with you, right? Our waiter Raul was knowledgeable and attentive. Their holiday Old Fashioned was so good, I had two! And our steaks? In a word - perfection. Almost tender enough to cut with just a fork.

One of the servers was offended when I asked for horseradish. She asked if I like steak. If I pay $500 for my dinner I feel like I can probably have a little horseradish with my steak.

Yesterday we were a group of five and automatically we were told since we wanted to split our checks there would be a 20% automatic tip. From there we did notice it was really hard to get our servers attention and once we got our food he barely came around. With that being said once we were done and wanted our checks it took quite a bit to track our waiter down so we had to tell another waiter that wasn’t ours for checks since we had been eating for quite a bit. Finally our waiter came around and asked us if we wanted dessert we told him it didn’t really matter since we were in a hurry and if we could get the check. So they started packing up our leftovers in boxes however I’m not sure why they were not given to us right after they had boxes them. From there it took about 46 minutes to get our check to go. Once we asked if we could have our left overs they had told us they were sorry and they were thrown away. I was expecting maybe for our leftovers to be packed with our dessert I never expected for our leftovers to be thrown out without our consent. We were told all they could do was remake our food however we were in a hurry so we asked if we could at least get some kind of discount on our food again they said no all they could do is remake our food. This was really embarrassing for me because I was showing my friends what I think is a really good restaurant with really good food however the service that was provided to us was terrible.

My only comment is about the hostess who seated us. My daughter had on a knit cap when we arrived because we walked over from the Pearl where we live.

As she was in the process of taking off her coat, still standing, not seated by the way, the hostess felt it necessary to comment to her that the knit cap needed to be removed. SHE WASN'T EVEN DONE TAKING OFF HER COAT, let alone seated. The comment was rude and inappropriate and we felt as if the hostess profiled my daughter as a rube assuming she would not have enough common sense to take off her hat in an establishment such as yours. Come on, give her and others some credit. It was rude and set this meal off in the wrong way and sadly it came across as judgmental and snobbish. Shame on her...

Unfortunately my favorite RC steakhouse in Bellevue closed so we took a trip to Portland for some good steak. Boy we’re we let down. Never have I ever had to return a steak to be cooked accurate
Lt - I asked for a medium and the steak was mooing red.

We were seated next to the window in the bar. The hostess, Taylor, was very sweet and accommodating when we requested the window seat. Lemon drops were delicious! Of course the sizzling steaks are always cooked to perfection. Great night and service.

We were blessed with an excellent server named Kyle, friendly, upbeat, made us laugh and feel special for having our anniversary dinner celebration at Ruth Chris. Service was well paced, food was excellent with the exception of being first served an incorrect steak, which they fixed very timely. The restaurant is a bit noisy, and tables are placed very close together (the server at the table next to us had his backside basically in my face).

Beautiful and relaxing ambience. Pricey, but steaks, appetizers and sides are all delicious as are their specialty cocktails. Wine by the glass was way over priced which was disappointing.

Both of our chicken where over cook/ burn on top, it took over thirty mins to get food. So of course we didn’t want it remade since it already took a little over half in hour to come. When we first sat down the waiter did not address us for at least a good 7mins. We sat by the elevator that made noise the hole time we were there for over two hours

Our server was outstanding… However the host/manager I guess working the Hostess desk when you arrive was extremely rude on the phone when I called to let them know that I was running five minutes late and he was also extremely rude to the two other people in my party who had just arrived and were waiting for me… Apparently he didn’t like that someone was wearing a hat… The bottom line is it’s all in how you speak and handle something if there was a dress code he could’ve expressed that…In kind manner

I’m a HUGE Ruth Chris fan and dine at RC on a regular basis in Florida, DC and Chicago. This was my first time at RC in Portland and I have to say it wasn’t the same quality of food. I ordered the usual; lobster bisque, Caesar salad, filet and cheesecake for desert. The lobster bisque was OK- just not fantastic which is what I’m use to getting at RC. The steak was prepared nice but the the side dishes of potatoes etc were all just “OK”. The cheesecake was “OK”. There was 4 of us and our bill was the usual $700 (we had cocktails and wine of course) but when you’re spending this kind of money on a dinner you expect it to be fantastic, and it typically is…. Just not this location? Service was nice. Cocktails nice. Hope this helps.

We have visited this location many times and have never had anything but outstanding service and food. This meal was not different. Everything from the hostess, our wait staff, food and the manager stopping by to make certain we were satisfied was done well. We arrived 20 minutes early and were given the option of waiting until our reservation time to be seated at a table we requested or being sat immediately. We waited since our remainder of our party was not arriving until the reservation time. Love the upstairs window tables.

Our party tried a different establishment month prior. Significantly more expensive. Poor service and unpalatable steaks. Ruth's Chris continues to be stellar.

Allowing T shirts is something that took me by surprise. But when the non-service dog was allowed to sit at the base of the table across from us in the dining room, I was shocked. This is a top shelf steak house. Not a SIZZLER !
I don't want to hear a do barking at patrons across the dining room while I am trying to celebrate my wife's Birthday meal.
No dogs. No T-shirts or modify your web site to alert all of us to wear a T-shirt please.

Ruth Chris always has the best steaks. We were sitting at in a spot that was a little noisy. Our side dishes were just slightly warm😕 we did mention that to the manager but all in all the food was very good.

I had the fillet which was cooked exactly to order and had great flavor. My lady had the petite fillet with shrimp. She said her steaks were just a little under cooked and she didn’t care for the flavor of the shrimp. The wait staff was very professional but seemed a little stiff, but you kinda expect that at a high end place. I’m definitely going back.

The table for two was facing too far for a decent conversation, a far difference from the experience months before with a booth setting. Upstairs is better suited for enjoying cuisine and company.
