Always outstanding

People say their steak house is as good as Ruth's Chris. I say why not just go Ruth's Chris. Always tender,hot and tasty. Great side dishes. Just can't be beat.

Great place to eat a good steak. 5 of us had different steaks and they were all good. Not best ever but very good. For wine we had the Francis Coppola Director's Cut Cabernet Sauvignon. A great Napa wine with beef. We shared a couple of sides. All were large and tasty. This place is on the edge of a... More

Have been here many times best steaks that sizzle when you receive them best chicken I have ever had it is stuffed with different cheeses and is delicious my wife will usually get the filet and sometimes lobster and then we will share. They have a nice happy hour with $8 specials I got engaged at this location

From the moment you enter you'll see the difference. The incredible atmosphere, and then after you're seated, you hear a sizzling noise coming your way, as a Walter passes your table carrying an entree for the table near by and as it passes by you smell the most amazing, steak still sizzling in the butter. Ahhhh! I'm salivating right now... More

Friends invited us to join them at Ruth Chris's for dinner. I had heard positive things about it, but now I wonder if people think they are getting something good because they are paying a fortune for it. Everything, and I mean literally everything, is extra. The New York steak I ordered was $37.00 (that was just for the steak)... More

Ruth's Chris never fails to provide an amazing product. The lobster mac and cheese is incredible. I wish I could bring myself to go there and split a steak and get the lobster mac and a salad. But the steaks are too good to split!

I've been a regular RC customer for nearly 30 years in restaurants throughout the U.S. Today's meal was a let down. Steak was great but the mashed potatoes tasted like instant. I was ordering off the fixed price menu and that was a mistake. The dessert looked and tasted like it was factory made and pre-frozen. Atmosphere was nice and... More

Ruth’s Chris is always a great place for the steak lover. Each one I have dined at has provided an excellent meal. The location in Irvine, CA, for some reason, stood out as being better than any other I have been to. Maybe because I was craving a good meal, although, if Ruth’s Chris is not on the top of... More
