I like that this place is near to were I live. It's a classy steak house, linen table clothes and great service. I prefer going to mastros in Costa Mesa if I want a good expensive steak. But with that said Ruth's Chris did not disappoint. I think my steak was a bit dry but was very flavorful. We had... More

Where do I begin? We have been coming here for years, they know us and we enjoy visiting with everyone every time we go in. We love to start with a glass Prosecco to go with our shrimp cocktail or Ahi tuna, the wedge is a favorite of mine (I order it with blue cheese crumbles, bacon bits and Ranch... More

My wife and I enjoyed our Christmas meal at Ruth`s Chris at noon on Christmas day. The food along with the service is 2nd to none at this location. We both enjoyed the meals from the classic Ruth`s Chris menu which comes with the meat and Entree`, soup or salad and desert along with the complimentary fresh bread. I highly... More

This is the place to go for a special occasion with your spouse, your family or even business clients. We love the excellent service and food here. My steak is always perfect and the sweet potato casserole is like eating a bite of heaven! They make an excellent Sour Apple Martini too.

Ruth’s Irvine seems like a professional pleasure factory: everything goes like clockwork. We arrived early for Christmas Eve dinner but were not seated until exactly the time we reserved. The lobster bisque and petite filet were of the highest quality, as always. The bread wasn't very good this time. It tasted a bit like corn bread. The point of this... More

We came to dinner here on Christmas Eve and it was a very nice evening!! All of us ordered off the fixed price menu which included a salad, main course, a side and desert!! It was a very reasonably priced meal given the quality and selection of the food! I'm not necessarily a meat eater, but I really did enjoy... More

We dine here every other month as a family with three generations. Never had a negative thing to say about food or service. The steaks are excellent and the cheesecake is out of this world. Good martinis and wine list! Service always makes you feel like they care about you.

Ruth's Chris Steak House has always been my choice when it comes to steak. Cozy restaurant with great service and exceptional quality of steak. They also have special package for anniversary. I don't like the crowded parking lot, but there's always valet parking.

Our family enjoys celebrating special occasions at Ruth's Chris. They have a Ruth's Classics fixed price menu where for $44 or $54 per person you can choose from several selections of appetizers, mains, a personal side, and dessert. As always, you can't beat steak with butter on top. Since they are a test kitchen for the rest of the chain,... More
