Seared ahi appetizer ($17) was divine. I asked for soy sauce but never used it; the spicy dressing was superb and much better than soy sauce. Next: Ginger coconut vodka martini ($14) was so refreshing and not too sweet (I almost didn't order it because I hate sweet drinks but the waitress told me it was not overly sweet). Delicious!...

We had a birthday dinner at Ruth Chris on this trip. The meal was typically excellent. There were no complaints from anyone of the 6 people in our party concerning our meals and service. The server was very helpful and unobtrusive. The steaks and seafood we ordered were all cooked correctly and were delicious. The birthday girl got a nice... More

I've been to Ruth Chris couple times and can say I'm not disappointed. Although I can't say their steak is the best streak I've ever had, their streak is very good, especially bone-in rib eye. You can easily differentiate their quality from others. What impress me more is the service. The waitress is so attentive and polite. It's hard to... More

We attended the annual cocktail dinner As I would expect from Ruth's Chris, the food was tasty and well presented. The shrimp in the first appetizer course were plump and had a glaze that seemed to match the bourbon in the Seelbach Sparkling Cocktail. The ahi in the second appetizer course was just lightly seared and the rice cake was... More

This Ruth's Chris is a special location. It's also a test-location for new menu items. I thought that was super cool! Did I order anything new? I did not. I have my standing favorites I do not stray from. (The lobster bisque and the petite filet, and no one can talk me out of them.) Maybe next time. Interesting to... More

If you have a special family occasion this place always delivers. We could easily converse with our party of four in the half moon booth and enjoy the upscale well-appointed dining room. Our waiter was excellent, a long term employee that loves his work, was friendly, timely and added to our positive experience. Steaks served cooked to perfection. Love it... More

I have been to Ruth's Chris Steak House to know what I want and normally this place delivers unfortunately this particular location falls short. The steak (ribeye) was good as always-- tender, juicy, meaty cut. Usually I go straight for the steak but this time around I ordered some asparagus with hollandaise sauce as well as their potatoes au gratin.... More

Ruth's Chris Steak House always has great prime-grade steaks. We had dinner there after our son's UCI graduation - nice place for a celebration, prices are a little high. Service was very slow. Several other tables seated after us left well before we did.

My steak was done absolutely right! Ruth Chris never lets down irrespective of location. This Irvine location was my first visit and it was up to my expectations and more.

The food and service from a well known brand is pleasantly delivered in Irvine. The staff is welcoming efficient. The steak and sides are delivered in a timely way and cooked to your order. Convenient location in central OC.
