We never got there because of the Corona Virus! We go to Ruth's Chris everywhere we travel and have never had a bad experience or dinner. I'm sure when we get to go to Maui next year, it will be wonderful as it always is.
Awesome as always! Steve was our fantastic waiter. Best ever Lemon Drop EVER!
This is one of our favorite restaurants, we're regulars. Bruce, Steve and the team are always welcoming and the food is well worth the price. Best chicken meal on island!
AMAZING ambiance and great tasting food as well as our server.
Always great!!meat cooked exactly right. Sides also oerfect

This Ruth’s Chris is hit or miss. You’ll have an exceptional dining experience one week, and a below-average experience the next. This is include both food prep and service. We went over the holidays in 2019 and loved it... went this week (end of February 2020) and were very disappointed. Considering how many amazing restaurants Maui has, I’m hesitant to recommend any place that’s this inconsistent.
We love Ruth Chris. We were early and the ladies sat us right away. It took a few for the waiter but he acknowledged us so that was ok. We ordered drinks and a couple apps, it took a while to take away the plates when we were done. Dinner had come so they were removed. My glass of wine was empty for so long I had to flag him down. I would have had another but the slowness kept from that. Food was amazing as usual. If I had a complaint my rib eye was more med to med well than med rare and my hubby’s filet was more rare than medium. . But the rest was good. Just slow waiter service, he had a big party next to us.
It was good.
The server was very kind!
taste also good
Took children and grandchildren. Everyone had a wonderful time and loved the food. Our server,Jerod, was the best.
Our server Steve was fantastic 💗
Steve and Matt are great and you can’t loose with their steaks.
Not the Ruth Chris I am accustomed to.

My family and I are big fans of Ruth’s Chris. We ate at this same location just 3 weeks ago and had a very good meal. Last night it was below good and close to bad.
Salads were not up to standard, soup was delivered cold and sent back. Our 2 Tomahawk steaks were not only chewy but also without good seasoning and flavor. French fries were soggy. Cream spinach was the only thing good.
We vacillated over 2 different restaurants to eat at last night and my son said let’s go to Ruth’s, “they never miss!” Last night they missed badly.
Steaks not cooked correctly. Took one of ours back to kitchen and brought it back overcooked. All tables near us needed to be cleaned...no one clearing tables. Food in general was not good. Not a good experience especially for the price.
We truly appreciate your feedback because it helps us improve. This is not at all the experience we aim to provide. So we can learn more, please consider sending us your contact information, including a phone number. Thank you!
We have sampled 5 high end Wailea restaurants and can’t really recommend Ruth’s Chris. Service was great. We ordered the 8 oz filet and mine was overcooked. They replaced it quickly but the steaks were not mainland quality. And being Maui they are expensive. Maui may not be a place to order steak.
We eat at the Ruth’s Chris a few times a year because the food is fantastic and so is the service. We get the small seafood tower, Chilean sea bass, cowboy steak and roasted brussel sprouts. Every so often my husband will order lamb, which he enjoys.
Great service, good food an enjoyable Valentines Day evening. Management suggested a wine bottle for us to try and it was great, very smooth and good. Our waiter suggested menu items that we selected and appetizers were also very tasty. Very enjoyable time at Ruth Chris Wailea. Mahalo
We were celebrating a 40th wedding anniversary (on Valentine’s Day) with friends. Typically Ruth’s Chris is a great option for special occasions or just fine dining that is consistent. Unfortunately, I think maybe with their reputation perhaps they feel that they can just be “ok” and keep their fine-dining status. Three of us ordered the fillet, which was good and cooked as requested. One person ordered the “Cowboy” rib-eye and said it was fine. That’s an expensive cut of meat to just be fine. Our sides were mashed potatoes, salads, asparagus, and a baked potato, which were all fine. Our service was pleasant and we were seated for our reservation on time. Over-all, it was fine, and expensive. Will we make sure to visit on our next trip? Probably not.
Everything was awesome!! Our server Steve, is the best!! Food was amazing! Had a perfect Valentine's day dinner!
Server Matt and the Manager were very attentive, even went above expectations... we went twice during our 9 day holiday in Wailea! Food was the quality we expect from Ruth’s.
Our server Steve was awesome. Had finally tried the seafood tower, crab legs were small but it was still good. Wife had the rib eye and I had the steak and lobster. Both were awesome. Thanks Wendy.!!!!:)
Excellent service by Steve and the other server. Manager checked a couple times to ensure we were well taken care of. Highly recommend!
The day before Valentines Day....made the Rez at 5:30p figuring that we would be served by about 5:45-6:00p....perfect.
Everything was great....service, food, ambiance. Consistent with our last visit there.
Wow! Is all I can say!
We went for our anniversary and the food and service were spectacular. We split a carpaccio and a surf and turf and every bit of it was fantastic. We have gone to RC for years but this visit was far and away the best!
We generally go to Ruth’s Chris on our anniversary. It’s alway excellent food and service. It’s pricey and we just go there for special occasions, but for those, it’s worth it to us.
As a Montana boy, I was born and raised with steak & potatoes. There are many, many restaurants in Montana that serve a better steak than this place. Maybe it’s because it’s Hawaii & fish is the big thing there. I have been to Ruth’s Chris in Scottsdale & Fleming’s, a similar upscale steak house in Arizona & California & they were much better than this location. The worst meal we had in 7 days in Maui.

Excellent food and service as always.
Delicious, large portions.
Was great. Brought a nice complimentary dessert for my husbands birthday.
As always the food is done to perfection,especially the steaks. The service is impeccable.
The service was wonderful, but one out of four steaks was over cooked. We should have sent it back.
We’ve never experienced anything but outstanding food and outstanding service here.
Dave our server was excellent. Great dinnet
OUR EXPERIENCE FROM START TO FINISH WAS WONDERFUL. OUR WAITER, OLIVIER, WAS CHARMING AND ALWAYS THERE WHEN WE NEEDED HIM.. BRUCE, THE MANAGER, VISITED THE TABLE A COUPLE OF TIMES TO CHECK ON THINGS. WE HAD A RIB EYE AND TWO FILETS, THE MASHED POTATOES, CAPRESE SALAD FOR DINNER. EVERYTHING PERFECTLY PREPARED AND DELICIOUS. FOR DESSERT, WE HAD THE CREME BRÛLÉE, BIRTHDAY STRAWBERRIES, THE APPLE PIE A LA MODE, AND THE LAVA CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE MOUSSE...PERFECTION! I WOULD HAPPILY RETURN AT THE DROP OF A HAT.
steaks are always cooked to perfection. sides are generous.
I would give a 2 to the hostess. she seated others before us that came in after us and we were on time for our reservation.
Love the staff, food and ambiance.
Outstanding service and food for my birthday celebration.
Ruth’s Chris is one of my all time favorite restaurants to dine at. We got together with friends and family to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday. The ribeye with blue cheese crumbs is a must try. Service as usual is above and beyond. Rick was amazing.
I have gone to many Ruth' Chris and this was just a flat out miss for them in Wailea. Our party of 6 had three steaks come to the table cold and the plate was easy to touch and grab, certainly not the experience Ruth's is known for. The plate is supposed to be sizzling and the steak very hot. The manager did take care of it and comp. our bill of $100 which was certainly appreciated. Very excellent manager and very personable offered to buy us a dessert as well.
Our goal is to provide the best food and service to all of our guests, each time they visit. Thank you for your comments, as they help us to improve. We are glad to hear our team stepped in to make things better, and we truly hope to have the chance to serve you again soon.
