It was my friend’s birthday so we decided to celebrate it at Ruth’s Chris. Lobster Bisque she ordered tasted kinda funny. Our waiter Sergio said we were gonna get free dessert since it was my friend’s birthday but did not give it to us. Also, other birthday celebrants were sung the Happy Birthday song but not for my friend. Seems unfair.

As always great food and service. We were there on the early side and so as might be expected there were a number of families with young children. The table next to us was uninterested in helping their kids understand and develop la sense of how one behaves in a “real” (not McD’s or Chucky Cheese) restaurant. I remember my kids being at that age and know that, for almost all kids, proper parent behavior can address this issue. But we had a great time and it was our decision not to seek another table—the view at that time was so spectacular that it overcame any of the noise issues. Will be heading back again soon, and often.

Taking out my parents for their anniversary AND my birthday. Ordered filet medium, received it rare. To remedy the situation they put the same piece of meat in the stove and brought it back to me. It was still rare on one side and overcooked on the other. The manager finally came up after 15 minutes of the monstrosity of a filet sitting in front of me. They offered to cook a new steak but by this time the rest of my party had finished eating. All they could do was offer a gift card for a future visit. It was a joke for a steakhouse in this price range to mess up this bad and the customer service to try to remedy the situation while it was happening was below average at best. Go to any other steakhouse over this Ruth Chris’ location.

Great service as always. The only thing is the menu continues to shrink and several of my favorite have dropped off as a result. Hoping they might come back after the Covid crap ends.

We have been patronizing different steak options on a regular basis. Chain and independent. San Diego has a good variety these days.
My experience is RC always delivers. Center-cut filet and other cuts (ribeye) have been always at par. Great flavor. You must enjoy the lite butter on the hot plate.
We kicked off w the new artichoke and goat cheese appetizer. Tasty addition w a nice goat cheese touch. Then switched to chopped salad.
Finally we had the filet and ribeye. Flavors as we expected. No surprise. Great steak. Never gone wrong.

The Cowboy Ribeye was fantastic and delicious, but the overall bill was pretty pricey. The Steak comes with nothing so you have to order sides and $12 to $13 dollars for a very small portion of spinach or mashed potatoes is pretty ridiculous and it adds up fast, especially with a salad, drinks and dessert. Tax and Tip add another 30% or more. A special occasion place for sure.

The waitress was pretty snappy initially, until she warmed up. 🙄 food is good. Better than the Ruth’s Chris in Irvine. We will try to come back, maybe try other items.

The staff is excellent service prompt but not pushy. The steak was cooked perfectly to order and the side of asparagus crisp and flavorful. Wines are a bit pricey but I just get 1 glass

I took my kids out for dinner. Awesome steaks, A+. I got the Ribeye, my son got the New York strip and my daughter the stuffed chicken(Awesome). However, the cream of spinach was cold. Mashed potatoes didn’t taste like garlic mashed potatoes? And the mac N cheese very average. I told the waitress she didn’t have to take the cream of spinach off the tap, but she just starred at me and didn’t say anything. It must of been a busy day for her since I had to flag someone else down to bring us the boxes and bags. I’ve had her before, so I know she’s a good waitress. My kids enjoyed it, that’s all that matters.

We had a wonderful dinner at Ruth's Chris. It was very busy as it was Christmas Day and the restaurant was pretty full, but the service staff did an outstanding job. Mark was terrific, attentive and friendly and always professional. The food at Ruth's Chris is always excellent. It's pricey so it's a place we go for a splurge but it's worth it.
