As always, excellent! Some of our favorite choices were, sadly, no longer available. Gluten-free menu was decent. We love Ruth’s Chris! Will, certainly, be going again! This was our last dinner before leaving Maui!

Everything was outstanding!! We were greeted within seconds of walking in the doors, and taken to our table right after check-in. The appetizers were great, Our main dishes came out just shortly after and the Ribeye, oh the Ribeye was cooked just so exquisitely!! Our Waiter, Olivier was outstanding as well, very patient with us and not always so "in our faces". His suggestions on the appetizers, side dishes & main dishes was spot on!!! Olivier really made the environment more inviting for us. The ambiance was perfect and everyone helping to clear out our table of empty plates were really quick, drinks were always filled...I definitely give this restaurant a 10 and will be back for sure....mahalo nui!!!

Outstanding, as always, even in the middle of the Pacific Ocean! We were on the island of Maui and had a ‘hankering” for some beef after a number of days enjoying great seafood. Ruth's Chris delivered on my favorite cowboy rib-eye. The ambiance is clearly Hawaiian but very relaxed and pleasant as is expected of this chain. Service was outstanding. Don’t worry whether Ruth’s Chris can deliver even this far away in the distribution channel.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the 5 Star service and excellence food, even with 4 kids. They went above and beyond with their service Perfection!

My son at a Jalepeno and they brought us a bunch of wet towels and milk all night! Even with my sons face and mouth on fire we enjoyed it so much!

Great service, delicious food, but the price is all out of proportion. One surprise which kind of balances it out is a very economical and decent wine list.

Ruth's has been a go-to on our vacations for years. Unfortunately, something has slipped. We sat in a booth. The seats had multiple holes in the leather. Several attempts had been made to cover these with red duct tape. Seriously? This was a higher-end restaurant at one time. We ordered the veal and petit filet. While the petit filet was good, the veal was chewy - although special of the night. Ruth's might be worth another dinner for us, and our server was obviously trying hard, but given other options we will need to think twice

Slightly diff menu from the mainland RC with prices for steaks and seafood being approx 20-25% higher; great RC service and food as always. Filet was a tad over cooked this time but amazing flavor. The white chocolate bread pudding is not to be missed - esp with the white cream sauce. Noise levels were high simply due to two tables with extremely loud conversations going on.

Our evening was made by our server Jarred right from our initial welcome. He is truly a "STAR" and deserves acknowledgement and recognition in every way. His skills are beyond reproach.

My evaluation of "GOOD" for value and food relates back to price and quality. The entrees are highly priced especially given the amount of connective tissue that needs to be cut away from the Ribeye. I am familiar this cut does has a lot but it was very gnarly.

Overall our evening was a very positive experience with each team member we interacted with. Great attention to detail.

The food here is what you would expect for a decent steak house. The food is good, not great. Prices seemed a bit high for what you receive. I don’t like being reminded what medium rare is, it’s not my first rodeo. Also, the wine list is extremely limited and rather pedestrian - this could be much improved and is an area which should be a profit center. Overall, it was ok - not fired up to return.

We love Eurh Chris and make the Maui and Palm Desert a must every year. This year we brought 2 other couples and arrived early and understandably had to wait for a table to be prepared. They had a wine event in the back of the restaurant so we got the table right at the front of the restaurant with full on traffic from bar to kitchen and front door traffic .....not happy! Maybe it was busy but at the end of the evening we got the bill and all said it was way too expensive for the experience. The steaks were just ok which was a first and considering the dollars spent...very disappointing. I hope we find it on ourselves to return hoping for a better experience.

Always consistently good food and service. Can’t miss when you stay with known restaurants. When on an island you are always tempted to go beachfront or to local restaurants but you won’t go wrong here.

Staying at the Wailea Beach Resort,very close to the restaurant location,meant an easy walk.
The service was excellent and the steaks are amazing if a little expensive.The portions are huge so share an appetizer and dessert!The wine list was good and wine by the glass was not expensive.

My wife and I went to Ruth Chris’ for dinner with our 10 year old daughter. They were offering a special with a salad, entree, side and desert for a great price. My wife and I got the special and our daughter ordered steak of the Childrens menu. All three of our steaks were excellent. The salads were very good and the sides—creamed spinach and broccoli were good too. We had ice cream, sorbet and cheesecake with berries for dessert—a terrific finish to the meal. The steaks were the best we’ve eaten in the past year!

Typical steakhouse ambiance. Good menu options and attentive service. Two negative things at this specific meal: 1. a table of younger people next to us where the guys thought it appropriate to wear shorts and baseball caps and 2. I had seen they had on “Oscar” add-on and looked forward to that for a couple of days only to find out it was a crab cake on the steak and not crab meat. Whoever heard if that???
