    This is my favorite steakhouse! The service is fabulous and the food is always cooked to perfection. We like to order the porterhouse. It is plenty of meat for two or maybe even three people.

    Ruth’s Chris always delivers consistently fantastic food. You can always count on the sizzling plate to arrive with a steak cooked to perfection. It was so easy to make a reservation for my party of 4 on Open Table. We shared a bottle of red wine (highly recommend Faust), calamari, and some sides with our entrees. My go-to order is a petit filet paired with the brussel sprouts and au gratin potatoes. We actually had to make room for dessert since we were so full, but shared bites of the creme brûlée along side an espresso martini. I highly recommend the relaxing ambiance of the downtown location!

    We are always frequent diners at this location. However we ordered a seafood tower which was not as fresh as usual, chopped salads that were not fresh as well. The steak definitly made up for the other dishes. The service was good but was incredibly slow. Took about 30 minutes just to get our bill paid. Will still dine but for sure a different experience than previous times.

    Amazing meal for my boyfriends birthday! Food and service was the best we’ve ever had but I had a really upset stomach late at night… could’ve been anything but I’m suspecting the lobster Mac and cheese 😂

    The three guys at the table next to us were drunk, extremely loud and obnoxious. The staff did nothing about it. It took away from the experience in a big way. Spent too much money to deal with that nonsense. Management should have handled it.

    Booked online in advance. Was kept waiting for 15 mins for a table to become available with zero interaction from the head of house. Eventually ushered to a private room with zero ambiance and a waiter new to the job. Would not return to this venue again. Great food as always at Ruth Chris but this location didn’t offer the level of customer service offered by others. Disappointing.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House - San DiegoResponded on September 15, 2022Alwayshungry, hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again.

    Unfortunately this entire dinner experience was disappointing. The food was barely average at best. Sides were cold - including the $30 lobster Mac & cheese that was tasteless. Crab cake “Oscar style “ closely resembled fishy cat food and even the filet was meh. Besides the wait staff who were very attentive, this location was not up to par for a Ruth Chris franchise.

    The dinner (4 course menu) featuring DAO wines was not what we normally expect. Even though we arrived very early, we were seated at the worst table (at the entrante, se could not see the presentation etc). The dinner-wine pairing and the wines were excellent, but the food alone was just good. Too many people in the dining room, it was too noisy. I was dissapointed.

    This place routinely delivers with consistently delicious food. We had our child work is, but we didn't feel ostracized they took our stroller at the front desk and said it's at a table with an amazing view that still supported our child seat in the booth. Ultan was our server and he was knowledgeable, helpful, and pleasant. The price tag is not cheap, but your definitely get what you paid for.

    There were only 2 minor things. One being that we arrived for our reservation right on time, however; the hostess seemed annoyed and was a little rude. The second being at the end we had a charge on our bill that wasn’t ours. Other than that it was great. This was our 2nd time here and the food was absolutely delicious and cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back.

    We had a party of 7 and were able to get a reservation at 9:00pm on a busy Friday night recently. Our server, Ty, was courteous and professional, and dealt with a major wine spillage with aplomb. Our steaks were delicious and perfectly cooked. This is a restaurant that is not for those on a budget - steaks are about $50 and up, and a la carte sides are about $14 and up. Serving sizes are not huge, so don't plan on leftovers. However, if you are up for a splurge meal, this is a good place for it.
