50th birthday celebration. They really only bad thing was my son and my meat was real rare on some part of the steak. We ordered the Cowboy ribeye med. So seen some meat very uncooked at Ruth Chris was a first for us.

Went for a birthday celebration ordered bone in filets they were terrible! Overpriced to say the least. We have been going there for years but make think twice before going again and spending that kind of money on a second rate steak. Frankly went to Texas Roadhouse and it was considerably better for half the cost. What is going on Ruth?

Food was delicious!!! Absolutely no complaints about the kitchen...they were on point! The servers helping our waiter were also very attentive and accommodating but our actual server/waiter was much more occupied with another party next to us. I don’t know if he saw dollar signs, but we definitely would have left him a hefty tip had he paid more attention. We ordered crab stuffed mushrooms, calamari, Caesar salad, kids meal, ribeye, cowboy ribeye, mashed potatoes, pina colada, chocolate sin cake, and sweet potato casserole w/ice cream on top.

First, no utensils for my son when they brought out his food. He took forever to get a to-go box for the appetizers that we didn’t finish because we wanted to save room for the main course. Finally after waiting and waiting...he took our order. Steaks were cooked exactly like we requested! But after when we ordered desert he failed to bring out our chocolate sin cake. Duh, we ordered the sweet potato casserole WITH the chocolate sin cake to all share. When we were finally done w/the casserole I waved him over to cancel the sin cake since he never brought it out in the first place. He acted as if he was just about to bring it out and said it takes a second to bring it out. Thus why wasn’t it brought out before??!! Just so disappointed as it started out good then all of a sudden a regular or someone who appeared well off shows up and forgets about us. Rude! Won’t be coming back! Plus we kept it classy and never were rude to him. We’ll just stick w/Maui’s & Irvine’s Ruth’s Chris.
PS: Don’t come here unless you “look” like you have money. We felt so disrespected.

I was impressed with the kids menu they had. We were on vacation and wanted to go for a nice steak dinner. My husbands steak was a bit undercooked for what was ordered as well as having some gross spots in the filet. We have not previously experienced this at a Ruth’s Chris before.

Once you taste the delicious steaks at Ruth Chris, everywhere else just seems to pale in comparison. For those of you who are wondering if this place is better than Eddie V’s, well I believe it is. Just barely though. The ambiance was nice, as this particular location overlooks the harbor. And the noise was kept to a minimum, meaning you can easily enjoy your company without fear of having to shout. We got the lobster Mac and cheese, which was phenomenal. And the steaks themselves were marbled and cooked to perfection. It was cooked in butter and topped with parsley. Lightly sprinkled with salt and pepper. It was minimal, but outstanding. My entree was the petite steak which came with two medallion filets with 6 shrimps. It was AWESOME. Would get it again in a heartbeat. Our server Brandon also made sure to give us a tour of the menu because he knew it was our first time. He was also very accommodating and personable. All in all, it was a premium experience that I’d do all over again.

Went for our anniversary. It was my first time. It was all wonderful, I just don’t get the hype over Ruth’s Chris. Wasn’t something I couldn’t have had elsewhere. View was pretty, even though we didn’t get a window table like we were told. A little loud for a fancy place.

We came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Due to Covid guidelines, all dining must be outdoors. Ruth’s Chris provided ample heaters that kept us warm through dinner. Our server, Sergio, was very personable and attentive. Our food was delicious as always - we never have any complaints when dining here.

Everything was wonderful as usual. We celebrate our son's birthday at Ruth Chris every year for the last 9 but this was our first time at the Harbor Drive establishment, they had outdoor seating, which the Del Mar restaurant did not and we were pleased with the service and COVID set up. Masks, hand sanitizer and the tables were at least 4 feet apart. We ate outside on the upper balcony and everything was great! the quality of the food was very good! Enjoy your self, ask for Gillian, she was delightful!
