A lot of people dont write positive reviews so often see the negative ones first. Bad news often times travels faster than good news, but this not the case. I really enjoyed this restaurant, the ambiance and food were great. Even had fun with my long time spouse on our pretend "first" day. It was a lovely restaurant.

Table wasn’t ready when we arrived, they sprinkled anniversary party favors on the table when we were walked to the table, had to wait a bit for the check. Nothing terrible but not the best anniversary experience that we’ve had with Ruth’s Chris in the past.

Food was excellent! Our server Mary, was sweet, gracious and welcoming. Three of us ordered the Filet, medium rare. Two of us thought it was perfect—-my daughter found it more rare than she liked. Lesson…next time she should order Medium! Calamari, breads, salads, and the lobster were just made to perfection.

Birthday dinner for our friend, everything was good but my salad had too much dressing on it so it was minor.
And the entrees were really slow coming out of the kitchen but it was super busy Saturday night. Still missing their corn soufflé though!

We always go to Ruth Chris and it’s been enjoyable every single time. This time my boyfriend decided to get steak and lobster though he loved the lobster he asked for his steak to be medium and it was definitely rare! Other than that everything else was enjoyable!

Celebrated our 32nd anniversary. The table was decorated with heart confetti and we were given a celebratory dessert. The wait staff was wonderful, especially after I burned my fingers on the extremely hot steak plate. I would suggest that the extremely hot plates be different and not look like regular plates, especially when it is hard to understand the waiter speak through a mask.

Steak was under cooked, we returned it and then over cooked. Table for two so small could not set food down. When I spend $175 on dinner I expect my steak to be perfect. The service people were delightful though.

Mark was a good server. Polite, efficient and friendly. Manuel deserves some credit, too. He was bussing tables nonstop and even stopped to take a picture of us. As soon as we finished a plate he was there to take it away. He seems like a great asset.

Celebrated my fiancee’s birthday. It was my first time eating at Ruth’s Chris. We were greeted by the hostess after walking up a flight of stairs to the dining room. We were seated promptly. I requested a table with a window view to the San Diego Bay, we got a table with a view but it was not next to a window because they were reserving those tables for a larger party. Our waitress showed up a few minutes later and took our drinks. Not sure what happened but we didn’t get our water and bread for about 10 minutes. Those items usually get served the minute we sit down in a fine restaurant. But for some reason, there was a delay. Our waitress was friendly. She answered our questions and ordered our meal. I ordered the steak & shrimp with salad. My future wife ordered the surf & turf with lobster bisque soup. We also ordered calamari as an appetizer. Bottom line, the food was excellent! The steak was cooked to order, very flavorful and tender. Overall, it was a good dining experience and we will definitely return in the future.

Omg! Ruth’s Chris is an exceptional dining experience!
We ordered a jumbo shrimp cocktail to start and a Pina Colada. Delicious! For the entree, we had a petite filet mignon that was truly the best steak of our lives! We also had garlic mashed potatoes which were so yummy!
Our server was very friendly and attentive.
What more can I say except I love this place and will continue to experience more fabulous dinners there!

Late Mother’s Day dinner. Service was great but the food could have been better. Aside from the filet and shrimp, the lobster bisque was poor and the creamed spinach was tasteless and lukewarm. First time and not sure if I’d go again.
