Everything was delicious! We tired to eat as much as possible. We had the seafood tower, filet, strip, potato au gratin, lobster macaroni, chocolate cake & cheesecake.

Although Ruth's Chris Steak House wouldn't naturally be our first choice on a Hawaiian vacation because of a desire to eat in Hawaiian restaurants as opposed to national chains, we are very glad that we went. The service was good, the atmosphere pleasant, and the steaks ... incredible. Our only disappointment was our table. In a restaurant full of cozy booths for two, this couple somehow got the booby prize table for two against a support column with a disappointing "view." I wish the hosts had asked us our preference; being on vacation and trying to relax, I chose not to reject the offered table. Other than that, absolutely worthy of the Ruth's Chris reputation and splurgy price.

We had never been to Ruth Chris before. The food was very good. However, the service was sub par. Our waiter hardly ever checked on us. Throughout our dinner he spent much time with other diners. When we asked if we were going to order too much food, he said no, and that we should definitely get the appetizer, only to have to take food home, so it felt like there was more interest in selling than taking care of the patron. Though the food was very good, we felt slighted. Our waiter’s assistant was wonderful, and engaging. We may give Ruth Chris another try in our home town, but will probably not return to the Wailea restaurant.

As always, an excellent experience at Ruth's Chris. We were in Maui celebrating our upcoming anniversary and were surprised with a beautiful fruit dessert!. Our server and staff were so very attentive, all a wonderful experience to go along with the delicious food.

I didn't know that Ruth Chris's 5-star Michellin Resto. It's ok ambiance and place, however the ribeye was too salty. Good thing I ordered some spinach to neutralize it. Well..there's always be a first time right?

Everything thing was perfect from the time we entered and sat down. The hostess gave us the name of our server and wished us a Happy Anniversary. Dave (our server) took wonderful care of us and our needs. Everything from our appetizer to our desert was delicious. The meats were cooked to perfection. The only thing I was a little sad about was they didn’t have the chocolate cake for desert which I was looking forward to having. Overall, it was a great experience and we look forward to visiting again.

We have gone to multiple Ruth Chris restaurants in multiple states and this experience was subpar. Our server disregarded our table and did not even offer the dessert menu.

Best meal on the island!
We have been here for 2 weeks and revisited our old favorites, but found they cut corners and inflated their prices.
Ruth’s Chris didn’t disappoint us. The Chilean sea bass was amazing and the filet mignon was spectacular!

Finally- able to travel after COVID19 lock down for a year. made reservations at Ruth’s Chris in advance. It was socially distanced and clean. Food was excellent. Menu was a little different - same great steaks but some of the sides were absent. Overall it remained great food, good service and what we expected. After a year in lockdown and home cooking , we forgot about the high prices of steaks and alcohol. But no regrets. Still recommend

Let me start by saying we typically love Ruth Chris, this was just not up to par with our typical expectations. We had to send crab cakes back, creamed spinach, and the waiter informed us that 70% of people have sent back the creamed spinach. Multiple menu items were unavailable, our waiter informed us that they were also out of all 3 of my drink options, then proceeded to forget the drink I ordered after having to get up and go to the bar myself. I was very nice even offering 4 stars on my review, strictly off of ambience. This was potentially the worst experience we’ve had on the island dining and subsequently it was on a birthday night as well. If you frequent Ruth Chris, sit this one out on the island, we got to the point where it was comical. They state no hats etc etc all around the restaurant were hats, casual diners and so forth, which we don’t have an issue with, just wish I could have been one of them, opposed to fear of not being seated based on attire. My steak was great, my salad was great, my Mac and cheese was great, however, almost every thing else was subpar. Not even close to typical quality, runny chunks of cheese on the scalloped potatoes very unappetizing. Needless to say, not trying to ruin there business with a 1 start review, because we do love all of the other locations, this was just unfortunately the worst experience we have ever had at one of their establishments.

I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the food, the NY strip steak I was served as grisly and the potatoes in the potato au gratin were undercooked. And there was a very small wine list, little choice.
