We ate on 1/27 and 1/29. This review was for 1/29. On the Saturday 1/27 our waiter was much better, friendlier and more attentive. The waiter on 1/29 was a bit of a smart aleck. Also we had a better situated table on 1/27.

We love Ruth Chris Steak House and so we decided to go while we are here on Maui. The food, the service and ambience is always impeccable. This time though, we were right in the middle of families with babies (under 6 months). The parents to our left were very aware of their surroundings and very attentive to their child most of the time. On the other side the baby was not happy (no fault of the child) crying most of the time. We realize they are paying patrons just like us, but really, what happen to getting a baby sitter! We could see other diners were not happy and decided to leave. And, others asked to be moved. Another diner celebrating their 25th anniversary made a statement to another diner, “ this is not Chuckie Cheese or Applebee’s... “, really. We have children, but never even thought to bring them at such a young age to such a fine restaurant. Just venting...will be more observant next time we are seated and if we can not be accommodated we will simply go somewhere else.

Great steak, wine and sides. Generous portions. Must have: creamed spinach and also the apple crumble tart. Another example of casual fine dining done well.

The NY steaks were drenched in butter, salt and pepper, and were a bit too fatty for their "prime" designation.

Eric our server exceeded our expectations as usual, remembering our dining choices, including wine. The occasion was a landmark one for Jennifer, who received her final inspection for her new home. The appetizer, large seafood tower was fresh and tasty, and steak prepared perfectly medium rare and timing and tastes were perfect.

A delightful dining experience. Our server was awesome and attentive. The steaks were amazing, mushrooms were perfect, but the roasted corn was not to our liking. We were looking for roasted corn off the cob in butter and got a mess of jalapeño, onion, peppers added to sweet corn that would have been perfect on their own. We asked for plain roasted corn but apparently it is premade which also made it awful.
Still love Ruths Chris Maui but will order the asparagus next time. BTW they comped the corn.

Excellent early bird venue before our reason for being on Maui from the outer isles to see Howie Mandel's only show in Hawaii for New Year's weekend 2017. We stayed in Kihei and couldn't have made a better choice for early dinner before the show, despite the multiple options for fine eateries in the area. The service and flavor was impeccable!

NY strip steak and mahi mahi, calamari and creamed spinach were all great. It was probably the best meal of our vacation. Service was very attentive in a polished, understated manner. Setting is the nicest Ruth Chris steakhouse I've seen. It is also easy walking distance from the Marriott Wailea Beach Resort next door.

Thought about not being too critical, but then what's the point of a review if not honest. We've lived part-time in Wailea since 2011. After all these years, this was our first time at the Wailea RC. The reason is prefer to eat lighter with fresher ingredients. That said, I have eaten at Ruth's Chris restaurants on business trips and know what we were getting into. We just thought we'd try something new on island. Big fan of Tommy Bahama restaurant by the way.

Now a bit on the food. Nothing special at all. I recently in CA had some barbecue grass fed steaks. Comparing the two. I would say that RC steak had a taste and texture as if it had been frozen a long time. Which I'm sure it would have to be to get to the island. Unfortunately, that messes with the texture and it certainly isn't worth the cost to get previously well frozen and thawed meat. Better than Safeway, but not by leaps and bounds per the price.

As far as everything else. Butter! Everything is immersed in butter. I'm afraid this is a broken record. But, if you want great fresh food you buy at Mana Market and dinner out is only at Mama's. Lunch spots are a plenty. Cool Cat, Tommy's Bahamas, IHOP, McDonalds after surfing. I know funny uh, and kind of gross, but my son digs it after being on the water.

They were a little behind on Christmas. Our reservation was for 8.30 and we were seated at 9. But Chris took good care of us and the hostess was apologetic and very nice to talk to. She told us they did 328 covers that night! Thanks for a nice dinner.

The service and food was excellent and great, respectively. I think our server's name was Steven and he was very pleasant, professional and efficient. Unfortunately we dined on Christmas day and apparently the restaurant under estimated how long folks linger at dinner during a holiday vs every day dining. We were seated about 900pm instead of our 815pm reservation and between the waiting and the stress of disappointed guests waiting with us the dinner wasn't as relaxing and enjoyable as it could have been.

We had Christmas dinner here and it was excellent. This is a solid restaurant and you know exactly what you are getting. All of our steaks were perfectly cooked. We had a small seafood tower for an appetizer and it was plenty for 4 of us. We split one dessert and it was the right choice, mile high pie was huge. Love the dinner.

Disappointed! We had reservations for 2+ months and when we arrived at our table for four we were seated in the worst location. To be put in the first table at the entrance, with aisles on both sides of the table. We asked to be moved, and we were after a few minutes. The food was ok, but very expensive and not that special. We won’t be going back.

If the old adage is true that you get what you pay for, you will pay dearly here but the meal and service is worth it. It's hard to find fault with a Ruth's Chris meal. I had an enjoyable Pinot Noir to accompany a very nice Caesar salad and a delicious sirloin with mushrooms and grilled brussel sprouts in the side. Fair warning, the steaks are rich with butter, so they're extremely filling. Our waiter was cool but efficient and ever present.
