Always Good

It’s hard to get a bad meal at any Ruth Chris establishment. Their name precedes them and this one is no different. The steaks are done to perfection and the service is flawless. The option of adding different rubs or seasoning choices to your steak elevates the normal steak house dining experience.

American's love a steak house and this is no exception.The Chris Steak House was founded in 1927 by New Orleans entrepreneur Chris Matulich. It was located near the Fairgrounds Racetrack, seated 60 people, and had no parking lot. Ruth's Chris Steak House is now a chain of 136 steakhouses across the United States and in several international locations. Service was... More

I've been on the island for two weeks a and decided to have dinner at Ruth's Chris tonight. Biggest mistake ever. Crab cakes were dry, overloaded with breaking. Worst crab cakes I've eaten in years. The filet was cooked okay, lacked seasoning, tough cut of meat with lots of gristle. The best part of the meal was the broccoli. They... More

We were celebrating with an after Lavaman Race meal. Food was very good. We had about 9 people. Our concern: the service from the head waiter, Douglas, took the restaurant level from fine dining to pub food. From the beginning of our meal, when asked about something not on the menu. (Lemonaid) Douglas' response was "we don't have that". Offer... More

We were a few bites into the salad that is served on top when I noticed that my salad was moving. The manager came apologized and said that it almost never happens but does happen. They... More

This restaurant was perfect from the moment we walked up the stairs! We were warmly greeted and seated in a booth by the window. Outside dining is available as well overlooking the Shops at Mauna Lani. Our server was wonderfully friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was one of fine dining as opposed to tropical, but that was just fine. I've... More

My husbands steak was good - probably ok if you order the beef. I ordered crab cakes and they were terrible. They tasted like stale bread crumbs for $34. Will never return. Made a reservation and was seated at the worst table in the restaurant - right across from the bathrooms. Not impressed.

We really enjoyed our petite filet here. Good value in comparison to many of the options around the Fairmont. Well worth making a reservation.
