The best steak I’ve ever had in a restaurant by far. The Ruth’s Classics meal makes it quite reasonable as well. Service was phenomenal, our server even gave us a few must-see tips while in town.

Food was excellent, but had to return to get cooked the way we requested. Service was poor! We came for Valentines dinner, third year in a row, but our waiter didn’t provide us with a rose or $25 gift card to return, like he did to the guest at the table next to us. I guess only certain guest are provided with gifts.

We have been to Ruth’s Chris several times.
Our server, Liz, was excellent. The food, however, was not 5-Star, as usual. However, my special request for peppercorn sauce was honored. The steak was just not a “10.”

Great food as always. Service was good but not great overall. Table was a little small and too close to adjacent table. Will always come back cause food is the best out of all steak houses!

We hadn't been to Ruth's Chris in many years. However, we had a gift certificate, so we thought we'd use it. First off, on Open Table it indicates that valet parking is $5. Not. It's $11.

We started with a couple of cocktails, a Lemon Drop and Gin and Tonic. Both better than average, which one should expect at $14 each. My spring mix salad was very tasty and reasonably priced. The Caesar, however, included the spines of the Romaine, which made it less appetizing. The Lobster Bisque was unremarkable and not quite hot. My husband's ribeye was gristly but flavorful... however, serving just a steak on a white plate (with no garnish whatsoever) is aesthetically displeasing. Definitely overpriced. The fingerling potatoes with onions were the highlight of the meal. The generous portion was well seasoned and cooked just right.

Surprisingly, the place was packed, so it appears the chain still appeals to a large population. With so many options in the area, it will be a long time before we return.

Dined with great friends. Crowded. Noise level was very loud for fine dining. Meal/Service was excellent as expected. Not happy when Host tried to seat us on a table next to a column with one seat hanging into aisle. Thanks to our server who moved us to a better table.

We came for our anniversary and I accidentally gave my full name instead of my nickname I made the reservation under and they did not match my reservation to my last name :/ thought it was whatever because we came early and were sat at a very nice table right away. Recommend a friend who’s anniversary follows not far behind us to find out when you tell them it’s ur anniversary they give you a nice candle and decorate the table! Very upset we couldn’t be treated the same way.

When we walked into the restaurant the spectacular view of The San Diego Harbor was amazing. The hostess was so helpful and professional. We all thought that the crab stuffed mushrooms were so tasty and quite a big portion and so delicious. The fillet mignon was excellent and came sizzling on our plates and cooked to perfection. The desserts were scrumptious and the chocolates sin cake was so chocolatey and well worth the calories. The Cheese cake with the chocolate bark was creamy and had a sophisticated cheese flavor. The service was very good and attentive. We will definitely come back!

After watching Still-Ill at Bay Bridge brewery in Chula Vista the boys and I doubled down on the evening by seeking out steak and martinis. We arrived in time for a table toward the end of the night, and were seated quickly. I laugh because we were boisterous and a very professional man in a suit asked if our party was “having a good time” - aka - “keep it down.” I appreciate how he handled us, and am totally fine with how he shushed us. It’s tough to deal with loud customers and for the sake of the other clientele I’m glad he snapped us out of it. The food was predictably great, but I can’t help but feel we weren’t given the typical priority customers receive because it was restaurant week. We didn’t come in for a discounted meal but it seemed like... our service was 75% what it could’ve been. Can’t knock the food, but keep your coupons and roll out the real stuff. I’ll come back

I LOVE THIS PLACE! Unfortunately there was a rowdy group at the table next to us. I’m convinced they were swingers. The one couple was making out for over 10 minutes and groping each other. It was disgusting and they should’ve been asked to leave. This is my wife’s and my own favorite place to go. We celebrate our birthdays here every year.
