Love Their Steaks

We love our Ruth's in Sacramento, but cannot compare except to say their service is severely lacking. The views from the outside seating, however, were spectacular. The free Hula Show on Monday(?) and Thursday night are a treat from their balcony. Make reservations for that.

We went to dinner last night at this location. And honestly, it was by far the worst Ruth Chris experience we have ever had. Staff not extremely happy to do their jobs, annoyed when asked for refills. We sat inside and the table was covered with ants and the leather seat was ripped and in need of repair. They tried...

Full disclosure: I was given a gift card for this restaurant almost a year ago and it languished in my wallet all that time. We are not steakhouse fans and generally prefer smaller ethnic type places for our occasional dinners out. However, we'd heard good things about this place and decided to escape a heat wave and use our gift... More

We have eaten at various Ruth's Chris restaurants around the country. Usually they are pretty good. But somehow this one has left the pack and fallen down. We had the surf and turf (lobster tail and fillet). The lobster was good--probably the best part of the meal. But the meat was just not good at all. It was prepared correctly... More

Stopped by the front desk to inquire about happy hr and dinner, having had a GREAT time at the one in Waiikiki, and the girl at the front was surley and a bit condescending and when I asked about happy hr times and prices she handed me a list and walked away and right then I decided it didn't matter....

Visited for birthday and anniversary dinner. Best meal in our whole vacation. Service was outstanding and food was perfectly cooked. We even got some flamed strawberries as a treat, and oh my Gosh...those were amazing as well.

I had the petit filet and my husband had the ribeye. They were both cooked to perfection and very tasty. Not sure if they were cooked in butter or just served with butter but it was good, and they were herb crusted. As a side we had potatoes au gratin; unfortunately they were undercooked and in some parts almost raw.... More

My husband took me here for my birthday dinner. We were able to sit on the lanai and watch the Hula and Fire Dance show below (Thursday nights). Had a perfect view! The filet mignon topped with crusted blue cheese is divine! Hate to say it but I get the same thing every time! Be aware- all items are sold... More

We've dines here many times and are always satisfied. There's a wide variety of menu items to satisfy all appetites. The prime time menu offered between 5 and 6 pm is fantastic! Three courses for $47 or $57 ( if you get the ribeye, which you should). Cocktail menu is great and the wine list is extensive. Wines avail from... More
