Excellent meal and service!!
The service is great, but the food is just not up to the price. It is really good, believe me....just not $60 for a fillet kind of good. Seafood stack is a great dish. Enough for 4 people easy - includes all sorts of shellfish/crab.
I've been to the Ruth's Chris in Walnut Creek, but this is my first time at the San Francisco location. The Walnut Creek location is brighter and more spacious, so I prefer the Walnut Creek location for that reason. Overall the food is really good, and the Ruth's Chris choice is a good deal (salad, entree, dessert). However, Ruth's Christ is not vegetarian friendly. I know it's a steakhouse, but when a member of your family is vegetarian, you want her to enjoy the experience too. The menu says ask the waiter for vegetarian options. The answer is you can pick 3 side dishes, and btw they're out of broccolini, but they have broccoli. She orders the broccoli, and it is literally steamed broccoli with no seasoning, not even salt. The sweet potato is covered in so much sugar, it would be considered a dessert. It was a real disappointment for her. However, us carnivores enjoyed our meal very much.
The service was not great, they kept forgetting about some things we ordered and kept coming by super late
I went to celebrate for my birthday and they made me feel special every step of the way from the little happy birthday confetti on the table to my dessert that had happy birthday written with chocolate on it. I loved it so much!!
Ruth’s Chris never lets us down. Always a wonderfully cooked meal.
Our annual celebration of March birthdays in our family. All 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal of huge steaks, New York and ribeye along with prawn and calamari appetizers and side dishes. We have come here for years and are never disappointed. Would definitely recommend for steak lovers. Our server Christine was fabulous.
We dine at Ruth Chris in San Francisco Van Ness 4-5 times per year and visited Friday 3/9/2018 for a birthday celebration. We like this restaurant generally but were disappointed this time around. This was a birthday celebration and I had asked for a special request and seating at a specific quiet table in main dining room, where we almost always dine at. When we arrived the hostess did not even acknowledge my request, (for example could have said "Oh Mr H so sorry that table was not available for your birthday celebration but I have another nice table instead..."), instead just seating us routinely at a table convenient to her. Rather than argue with her we accepted that table (mistake) which unfortunately was next to a 6-top of loud and rowdy patrons. So not starting out great. Fortunately we did have a fantastic waiter "Jack", an experienced waiter who had been around and knew how to provide attentive service. We appreciated his efforts. Steaks from the prix fixe menu (6 oz petite filet) were just okay, a little tough, not outstanding. In past visits the general manager typically made the rounds but not this time so no convenient opportunity to provide our feedback directly to them. Did not meet my expectation. Overall okay, but I expect more for the price that I'm paying there. I'm sure I'll return but hope to have a better experience and if no improvement will find a new venue for our upscale nights out.
Celebrated my sister’s BD, had a great time, food was perfect, had a wonderful experience from the time we entered to the moment we left, and outstanding service!
We went to there , sooo delicious . we enjoy a lot of steaks.
Wie immer sehr gut
The staff was very warm, inviting, and accommodating. They provided stellar service .
Food and service were excellent (as usual - outstanding) -- however, a disappointment in the wine offerings. The Moscato recommended as a pairing for the Ruth's Chris Classic menu was not available, and a choice Cabernet was not available. While we were able to "settle" on an acceptable Cab to accompany our dinner, it was disappointing not to have our choice wines available. Not sure why they were "out of stock", but good wine is always a must when enjoying a high caliber meal at Ruth's Chris.
Food and service was excellent! Would recommend to friends and family. Pricy but worth it.
I like the steak, very juicy and tasty. The service was great as well. But I just don't like the steak doesn't come with vegetables unless we order vegetables with additional price. In lots of nice restaurants, steak also comes with vegetables. Anyway, it was for my birthday and I got a small but free birthday cheese cake which was delicious.
great service the seafood platter was 86ed on a Thrusday evening. pity! but manager made up for the lack of menu items!
Expensive but worth it. The place is a little run down.
Ordered the Cowboy bone-in ribeye. It was satisfactory, but one does expect better than satisfactory from a Ruth Chris Steakhouse. The grilled asparagus served with a hollandaise was far below average. The asparagus was thin, barely grilled, bland and should not need any sauce served with it. The sauce was bland also. We will try the other steakhouses in the area next time.
Went there for an anniversary. Great experience. Everything was taken care of. Our server Dana went above and beyond!
A great birthday dinner for my boyfriend. We both have come here before for special occasions and been very pleased with the food and service each time. This visit, we unfortunately were seated at an undesirable table right next to the busy kitchen entrance, and also near a table of 5-6 very loud, obnoxious business men. We notified our server and were quickly and thankfully able to be reseated at a different table. Unfortunately could still hear the obnoxious men, but at a lesser volume! Food quality and service was worth the hassle, and we both don’t even eat beef! The seafood is exquisite. Will be back.
Ribeye steak was sub par compared to other steak houses In the city. Cooked well but appears to have the lost the great “crust” on the steaks as in previous visits years ago.
Our family loves Ruth’s Chris. Best red meat ever. Great waiters. Just a great restaurant
Nice place, prices for ala carte were a bit high. Waiters seemed to be trying to upsell. Noce place, comfortable, nice decor. Food was very good, but on the pricey side.
We had a great time. Food was very good
Great dinner with delicious food
Visited this restaurant for the weekend after Valentine's Day. We were delighted that there were rose petals and a lit candle on the table waiting for us (even though, like say, it wasn't actually Valentine's Day)!
The food was all amazing, and our service staff were polite and helpful throughout the evening. The only minor blemish against what was otherwise an absolutely perfect experience was that the placement of our table was right next to the serving galley, but despite that, the overall ambiance was still great.
In any case, thanks for an awesome night!
Steaks, service ambiance was perfect!
The food was good and came out really quick. We both got ribeye, mines 12oz and medium rare, his 16oz and rare. No sides because we specifically just wanted meat. The waiter kind of gave us a smug look when he found out we didn't want anything more. They warn you that the plates are really hot, and they're not kidding. It comes out so hot that if your meat was too raw, you could place it in the plate and it'll cook it up a little more for ya. Both the meats came out about the same. I don't like my meat too raw and it was super hot on the outside but still very cold on the inside (luckily i was able to cook it a slightly more on the hot plate!). I didn't mind it too much though, everything was still good and we finished majority of our food. They also gave a complimentary birthday dessert after our meal, which was nice. Service was good as well. We probably would come back.
Ruth's Chris was excellent in all ways. Great corner booth! Nice comfy atmosphere.
Excellent service (thank you!) Fantastic food-every bite was great.
Skipped dessert this time as we were too full.
Valet parking is available. We have used it before and it's very convenient. We were able to find parking on the street nearby, so we paid the meter a few dollars (parking fees end at 6 p.m.) for the 5-6 pm period. After that free! A short drive to Palace of Fine Arts for concert afterwards.
Worth the drive from anywhere in Bay Area. Enjoy!
The food was outstanding as always. Our server on the other hand was not! I wasn't able to catch his name, but he was an Asian man in his late 40's . He was very unpleasant from the moment we sat in his section. He was either having a bad night, was in a bad mood, or really hates to serve. Anyway to sum up this horrible night this man was super Arrogant , he forgot to bring my second cocktail and lastly we ended up also having to tip the busboy whom we received better service from.
We never really go to the city because we live about 30 minutes out. This man kinda ruined our night because even tho we loved the food, we ended up discussing how bad the service really was. I guess it's quantity over quantity now a days.
Reservations to celebrate for an Anniversary dinner with Friends. Great options from the menu and the food was great! Meat was cooked perfectly based on each individual's preferences. Service was excellent!
The coconut ginger lemon drop is amazing! My BF loved the duck horn wine too. I loved the petite filet. The only thing is that my BF wanted to try the filet as well, but the waiter brought him a rib-eye instead. It was still good so we didn’t say anything, but I know he was looking forward to trying the filet. Other than that, everything was great.
Had an amazing meal, steaks were cooked perfectly and the service was excellent, this was our first time here and we will definitely be back! I also appreciate that they have a dress code, I hate paying a lot of money for a nice meal and to be sitting next to a guy in shorts and a baseball hat. It’s nice to dress up every once in a while and not feel out of place.
We made reservations for my Nieces birthday. The customer service was the highlight of our night. The food wasn’t as great as I remember, but the portions were good for the price. I will definitely be back. Our waiter Juan and his crew were great!
Our Server was the best & would want to go back again !!! We've been there about 6 times & every time the food gets better !!! Everything was just Delicious !!! Want to go back for my Birthday in June !!! Take my word for it !!! Go for it !!!
Great food and Service!
I had a reservation and was a little late, but let them know before had. Once we got there we still had to wait 25 minutes. When we got seated no one took our drink or appetizer order u til 20 minutes later. The appetizer came quickly but the drinks took forever. Our waiter finally came back and took our food order. We didn’t wait too long for it, and all the food was superb. Nothing to complain about there. However, I’ve had an experience like this before at a different Ruth Chris location. The food was amazing, but service did not match it. Very disappointing considering the cost. You pay for the ambience, good and timely service plus the food. I only really got 1/3 of those things.
I have been at Ruth’s Chris quite a few times and have always had a great experience. Except this last time. Food was excellent but service was not that great. Waiter did a very poor job to the level that is what we remembered most about this visit. In a rush to take the order and run. Very impatient ever visit to the table. Not very knowledgeable as well, We asked about a dessert which he said they did not have but we found out later that did because the table next to us ordered and received just fine. Hopefully management will think twice about hiring this level of staff if they are hoping for return customers. Probably going to try other steak houses after this last experience here.
The Raspberry Rosemary Cosmo was delicious. The three of us really enjoyed our chopped salad, surf and turf, and tasty vegetables. The portions are generous and easy to share.
We would definitely come back!
