The food is amazing no doubt. But honestly the steaks don’t need to be 60+ dollars a piece.

The food was rated very highly so I was expecting something more than an average steak but you order med rare and it comes well done 😕 and not very flavorful either. I have a thing about asking for it to be remade...never really know if its coming back with anything extra. So I just ate as is. Kinda bummed but oh well

The steak and service were excellent. We ordered a baked potato and mashed potatoes which were luke warm when served and got cold quickly. Just a little disappointed since the potatoes are ala carte. Would recommend the Walnut Creek Ruth's Chris over the S.F. location.

We have dined at Ruth Chris in Roseville several times and have always had a great experience. The service we received at the San Francisco location did not even come close to comparing. It was very disappointing.

Took an hour after our reservation to get seated. Kitchen never sent out our salads and they offered to compensate our dessert which was already part of the meal we ordered. Our server was very nice which saved the experience but I honestly expected more out of a steakhouse.

Had one of the best rib eye steaks cooked to perfection. Sides of sweet potatoes and asparagus were excellent as was the service. Can be expensive.

Father’s Day and what a wonderful experience from the concierge check-in to valet opening the the door and thanking us for dining with Ruth’s Chris. Professional, exquisite and full attentive white glove service through the meal. Oh and the food...... you will not find this quality of food along with this value of experience anywhere else in the city of San Francisco.

This dining experience would have been much better if they didn't close early (8:30 PM) due to a maintenance situation that they scheduled in advance. We were never given this information until we arrived for our reservation.

The room was overcrowded, table too close together and noise level too loud. They ran out of mashed potatoes at 7:45 pm! and the sweet potato casserole was so dry it stuck to the pan it was cooked in, none of the steaks were prepared to the temp requested. Overall, it felt like a rushed, over priced, ordinary dinner. Not the experience we usually receive at Ruth Chris. Question whether we will ever return.

I had a reservation made and yet they made us wait 20 mins to get seated because they said they "were really backed up". That's why I made the reservation in the first place. Then it took a very long time for my wife to get her sparkling water (15 mins after ordering), then one of my guests ordered her steak medium well and it came to her very red. She was embarassed but I convinced her to send it back. But its said because she is my son's girlfriend and she was very embarassed etc.

We'll never go back.

Hands down a great dining experience! Occasionally, I meet up with my childhood friend for steaks, and Ruth’s Chris made it memorable one! Our tomahawks were cooked to perfection, and the staff was very entertaining. I want to thank Christian, Shawn, and everybody else for a great night! This enjoyable experience gives me every reason to come back again!

I heard the waiters discussing myself and my guest within ear shot of my table. I thought it was so rude. There were kids coming in the front door as I left with baseball caps on backwards. The table where we were seated was exceptionally hot I guess cause it was next to the kitchen. I was hoping for a lot more!

Me and my husband just got married and went to Ruth’s for date night. Everything from the cocktails to the thomakawk was perfection. The lobster Mac and cheese they have is also my new favorite. We also sat in a very quiet intimate table away from the rest of the larger parties which made the experience a lot more enjoyable. Overall we enjoy the entire experience and can’t wait to plan another date night at Ruth’s a

Excellent meal with bone-in filet, lobster Mac, brussel sprouts and asperagus. Server, Montaiesha, was excellent and remained attentive despite our arrival shortly before closing time. She encouraged us to take our time with dinner and dessert, despite the restaurant being closed towards the end of our meal. Shawn was the manager. He checked in a couple of times to make sure our meal was going well, and provided lots of humor. A great experience, overall.

Ruth's Chris Steak House is my most favorite restaurant and no other Steak House even compares to the unique unbelievable flavors that gives you a party in your mouth every time. The small room in the front corner that only has 5 tables, is the best room to enjoy a quiet dining experience.

Christian, our server was amazing. He was very attentive and accommodating. He’s not pushy. Very charming, actually.
My petite filet was tender, juicy and tasty. Love the sauce! My husband had the regular filet mignon. He loved it! The baked potato was huge, so we split it!
We love Ruth Chris’s Steak House!

While the servers were very nice, and the food we actually got was great, there were a number of hiccups in our dining experience. On three separate occasions we ordered something and then was told later on that they where out of item. First it was a glass of wine, then it was the lobster, and finally it was garlic mashed potatoes. I love Ruth's Chris, but this was not their finest hour.

The waiter and staff were nice but we all wanted mashed potatoes and their mixer was broken so we had to pay an up charge to get another type of potatoes-seems like they should have just given us the potatoes with out the price increase. Two steaks had to be sent back because they were not prepared as requested.

From the door man to the hostess we were greeted promptly. I took my brother out for his 32nd Birthday. He hadn’t been here in a very long time and wanted to grab a steak. Our waiter Christian was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and efficient and knew his way around the menu. I would definitely come again and stay longer for desert. Great service. I ❤️ Ruth’s Chris.

Reservations were honored 20 minutes late despite 2 phone calls and 3 emails to confirm from RC. That in itself was not too bad my complaint would be that all correspondence from RC drilled dress code into conversation. Upon arrival a couple dressed in shorts and flip flops were seated ahead of us. Group next to us had 2 young men dressed in tank tops and torn jeans. I’m from southern cal beach city and don’t own a pair nice slacks so the way they were dressed was not offensive to me what’s offensive is RC claim as upscale establishment and not enforce the rules. I was up there for a graduation and wanted that type restaurant my wife spent 200$ on my clothes to be compliant when clearly it was not necessary. My next call will be to corporate and yelp for which I have never done not to mention $650 bill will not be counted towards points. Place was a joke as an upscale establishment cannot make an old fashion cocktail

Ruth's Chris Is one of our favorite restaurants! We chose to have our five year anniversary dinner here because of that! This was one of the worst I need experiences I've ever had. The service was awful, the food was burnt, the prices are high, They were overbooked and understaffed we ended up walking out without dinner after only having appetizers! Made for a very disappointing anniversary night

The food is always great. The service is always great. We love the food and cocktails. The last few times we have been there it seems like a different group of people. Maybe they need to start implementing a stricter dress policy, no sweats, hats,etc. Other than that, great

Waiter was totally unattentive during the meal. Ordered wine...he brought it to the table in a bucket unopened and left. We finally opened the bottle. Had the Ruth's Chris Classic meal which consisted of a filet, side and desert ($65.00). Steak was not up to Ruth's Chris standards. This was serve to us by the manager. Have no idea what happened to the server.

Sadly, this Ruth's Chris is nowhere near worth the prices charged and the service provided. Second visit in a year and will be the last. While the steaks (2 NY and 2 Filet) were properly cooked and met expectations, it ended there. Side of creamed spinach, loaded baked potato, grilled asparagus, and au gratin potatoes were nothing or premium grade. The server, while polite and somewhat attentive, was not in the peak of health. There was a 20+ minute gap between dinner being cleared and desserts brought to the table. Management, while clearly visible, only came to the table once in a "drive by" manner. Other tables seemed to appear more important to her. Wish the review could be better, but this once terrific restaurant has seen better days.

This was our 2nd time coming for Mother's Day. My Mom and I both ordered medium well rib eye steaks and hers was too done so they gave her another and it was tougher. My Mom ordered 2 white Russians and they didn't have enough Kailua so they put in another shot which made it bettwr. My 9 year old son wanted salmon grilled and if that wasn't available then we could opt for stuffed chicken, thankfully the chef was able to grill it. He asked for lemon numerous times but it never came. There was dust on the side wall platform. Arturo was a little forgetful but nice.
