My girlfriend is a big fan, now I see why. My first time, and everything, particularly our waiter, whose name escapes me, was superb.

Nice restaurant. I had petite filet and shrimp. Filet was not the best. Definitely had better and shrimp were very small. Was not impressed with food but staff was great. A little pricey for what we got.

Love the food at Ruth's Chris. Here's my hesitation on a rave review. I felt our waiter was really condescending about offering the special priced meal. If he said the price point might be appealing to us one more time, I was about to say...that really isn't an issue. We order that meal simply because it's all done and easy to order...the appetizer, the entree, the side, the dessert...no big choices. Not because of the price point...although it is a really good deal.

We have been to this location on several occasions. This is the first time that we received the extra special care (personalized menu and "Happy Birthday" confetti on the table....all because I notated that on the OpenTable reservation. My husband's birthday was made extra special....and I appreciated the extra touch. The food is phenomenal....I gave 4 stars because my husband's steak was undercooked a bit...perfect for me, but he likes his cooked a little bit more. The wait staff and manager made sure the steak was cooked to order the next go around...other than that....the night was perfect! The hostesses are helpful and courteous. the view is lovely and the food is fantastic.

We went there for the steaks, and the steaks were amazing! They did not disappoint. The only criticism I have is of the side dishes. We had lobster mac 'n cheese, creamy spinach, and au gratin potatoes. The spinach was good, however the potatoes were not cooked all the way and were somewhat cold. The mac 'n cheese was not cheesy (at all), and was overcooked! The side dishes I would only give "1" star for. The steaks, wine, and service were all 5 stars though.

Gorgeous location, requested a special occasion for a 21st birthday and we had a window-side table with a view. Arrived early to have a drink at the bar, escorted to a decorated table with bday confetti and personalized menu "Happy Birthday xxx" to my guest. We had a fabulous meal, he was very impressed. Would definitely go back again, for any occasion.

Ruth's Chris San Diego Steak House should serve as its flagship location. Great food, certainly, at all their locations, but this location is hard to beat--right on the harbor waterfront. Last year, the restaurant underwent a much-needed rehab and lighting was improved so you won't need your smartphone to see the menu any more. New carpeting, perhaps a few fewer tables to improve individual space, new art and decorations, and this place rocks! Maybe its just the acoustics in this room, but it virtually always sounds way too loud to be a 5-start restaurant. I want to hear the sounds of people enjoying their night at Ruth's Chris, but I'd also like to be able to speak to the people at my table without having to yell over the roar of the restaurant on a Saturday night. Overall, no complaints. Great food, great drinks, great service. Why we pay a premium.

Yes I would definitely recommend friends. I already did 🙂 This was my first time at Ruth Chris. I was not disappointed at all. The food was delicious. Service and wait was great too. I got seated before my reservation time. So definitely a great experience for me and my husband. We both left happy and planning our next visit here.

Steaks and drinks were delicious. Our main server was amazing but our water person never brought us lemons as promised (minor detail). We even got the fingerling potatoes, we mentioned they weren't the best and the server offered to take them, comp them and we ordered dessert instead. Creme Brulee was phenomenal. Overall it was AMAZING! Will def be back, when we can afford an extravagant date!
