You MUST experience Ruth’s Chris at least once in your life. A treat yourself and a loved one place for sure. My husband and I went right after Valentine’s Day when we knew not very many people would be swarming the place—the smartest idea. The place was pretty empty, we were helped right away and the waiter was very helpful in explaining what was on the menu and choosing something for the two of us. We already had items in mind but he solidified the deal. We made reservations ahead of time and the view we had from our seats was great! If I only ever go there once I’m glad I made the decision in going!

Another wonderful date night at Ruth Chris ❤️ Our server, Sergio, and our busser were exceptional. The view was picturesque and our food was flavorful and well portioned. Cheers to the bar manager, Adam, for always setting the tone for a great evening and the bartender, who knows their way around a good Bourbon.
My date was the sweetest part. Here’s hoping you have the same experience with YOUR sweet date. 🥂

Surprisingly AMAZING! Holiday dining experiences are usually average or below, especially on Valentine’s Day. My hubby and I thought the whole meal was perfection!! The steaks were incredible and that chocolate cake, WOW! Thanks to Chris, our service was great, too.

Our Valentine's Day dinner at Ruth Chris was outstanding! Service and food was amazing!
The only thing lacking was the ambience due the pandemic and the modified outdoor dining arrangements.

We had a good experience. The only thing we would have liked better was to be seated inside on the terrace. But other than that it was delicious.

We had a steak come out underdone, sent backs and then came well done. It was a mishap, but understandable given the V-day rush. The staff was very helpful and managed the situation very well, we just ended up not having time for my steak. All other food as well as the service, was great.

The food was OUTSTANDING as well as our server. The outdoor dining in the patio did not offer a great view which is the reason for the lower rating. Hopefully once the Stupid CA rules allow for indoor dining, the ambiance will go back to the highest rating.

My husband’s steak was awful and he didn’t even eat it. And on top of all that there was a dog next table over us and my husband was very uncomfortable.

We were celebrating a birthday, our server was Ronn, he was by far one of the best waiters I have ever had. My family love to go out so we have had quite a few. He was just AWESOME. The food was also great.

We booked our reservation early and were able to reserve a time before the dinner crowd came. Our reservation was at 4, so we practically had the place all to ourselves for an hour. With COVID, we debated whether or not to keep our reservations, but I’m glad we did. We caught them right before they closed outdoor seating/dining again. There was limited seating outdoors, which made us feel safe. The service was EXCELLENT, as always.

My wife and I went to Ruth Chris to celebrate my retirement on Monday. Pamela, our server, and Jeff, the "on duty Manager, were both absolutely wonderful! We sat out on the upper balcony (due to COVID protocol). The view and sunset were great. The food and the drinks were PERFECT. We were both extremely happy! Thank you Pamela and Jeff !
