My family and I have been trying out all the best steak houses in Portland and Ruth Chris was our final restaurant to try. Can’t recall the name, but the seafood appetizer was good, however the crab was a little chewy and a bit overcooked. Sauces were amazing.

Many of the steaks we ordered were overcooked. We asked for medium and there was barely any pink in some of them. As for flavor, it really was not overly impressive. I got the cowboy ribeye. I would rate Ruth Chris steak better than El Gaucho, but not as good as Ringside or Morton’s. The best part of the meal was the crème brûlée, it was absolute perfection!

Full disclosure: I’ve been eating at Ruth’s Chris around the country for at least 30 years (yeah, I’m old). Just ate twice in 6 days at the one in Maui last month. I don’t know if it’s the consequence of the pandemic, but our dinner there tonight was just so meh. It all started with no valet parking. If you know anything about downtown Portland, parking is not easy. We had a reservation, the restaurant is about 1/3rd full, and they try to seat us at a small two top not more than 12 inches from the next table, even though there were two open booths nearby. Then the bbq shrimp appetizer. What happened to the old style one in a spicy New Orleans style sauce? The steak was great, as usual, thankfully. But no personal touch. Never heard or saw anyone from management to check in on us. It’s just so atypical of a fine high end steak house. Looks like it’s Morton’s or Ringside or Portland Grill or possibly the new El Gaucho coming to Vancouver (WA) for our next steak dinner. I’m sure Ruth would be very disappointed.

First, the service was very good. The real issue here is the food. The steak was pretty good, but not the best I've had in town. The real issue was the rest of the food. Crab cakes were made great, sadly the cooking wasn't on point, a good crisp on the outside but the inside wasn't warm enough or done long enough. The wedge salad also had multiple issues. The dressing was thin and the bacon wasn't very salty. A wedge salad is a specific thing, the blue cheese needs to bring tang while the bacon needs to bring salt, this salad wasn't bringing either. Lastly was the wine selection, while I could qr code up a full menu the provided menu did provide some wine, it just simply wasn't enough. In total it offered maybe 8 to 10 reds and none from Oregon by the glass. Ruth's does good steak but given the missed opportunities in other areas I'm not likely to return given other options in PDX

The service and food at Ruth's Chris was excellent. Unfortunately, the app was horrible. Although I had a reservation both on my app and my calendar, the restaurant had no notification and it was quite embarrassing to show up expecting to be seated due to a reservation that was made days ago just to be told "they don't see it". Fortunately, the service at Ruth's Chris carried the slack for the inadequacies of the app.

I’m a long term Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse fan but this was a little bit disappointing. Probably just trying to get back on the right track from Covid I suppose? No valet…should have seen that coming but didn’t. Cardboard menus, table wasn’t set on our arrival. Just not the same vibe. That being said…

I ordered the 21oz Cowboy Ribeye Steak. It was very flavorful but a bit on the tough side. Not the juicy tender that one should expect. The Au Gratin potatoes were “meh”…should have stuck with the overloaded backed potato. On the positive side, my dinner date loved the Caesar Salad.

At least she said “YES!”

We had not been to this restaurant in a couple of years and was very surprised at how much the quality had gone down. The hostess was lackluster and not too welcoming, we had reservations for 6 and when they took us to the table it was only set for four and they were not apologetic or seemed to care. Chairs were beaten up quite badly with all the chair cushions were peeling and dirty, it felt like we were in a cheap one-star restaurant. The food was not bad, but definitely not as high quality as we remembered, and the super high prices did not match the ambience and level of service. We also decided to come here because half of our party are vegetarian and we saw on the website that they had a special vegetarian menu—however when we got there they told us they did not have it anymore. So they were forced to eat salad and potatoes as their meal. With so many other steak restaurants in the area, like Ringside and Morton’s, we do not plan to return.

My daughter and I came to Portland for a mother-daughter get away. She wanted to go to Ruth’s Chris for dinner, so of course I took her. We both ordered the Surf and Turf. The lobster was okay, but the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were poorly seasoned, watery and gross! The menu indicated that the dessert would be cheese cake, which my daughter loves... so I ordered it. Well, when it was time for our dessert, our waitress announced that they changed the dessert to bread pudding instead. I questioned why we weren’t told at the time of our order. The waitress apologized but still brought us the bread pudding. The. Bread pudding was slimy, soggy and bland. So disappointing! Anyway, the mess we ate last night was grossly overpriced and disgusting. I can’t believe I paid $149 for the mess we ate jade night. I will never eat at a Ruth Chris Restaurant again!!!

We were put in a both that felt like you were sitting in the lobby. My sister was asked to remove her fashion hat when you had guys in the restaurant with T-shirt, sweats and slippers, I kid you not. Our service was poor and our waitress rude. Putting all of that aside my moms steak was so tough she could not cut through it. We asked them to replace it, it was so over cooked. The next steak took so long that the rest of the table had finished eating. When she cut into it, it was raw. Not pink, raw. It looked like tuna it was so raw. We showed the waitress, after being there for an hour and a half she asked if we wanted another. Nope. This place sucked. For the money there is way better places to eat in Portland.

* it was so late when we got back to the hotel that my mom had to eat a grab and go chocolate chip cookie for dinner. It was even higher quality then what we had.
