BEST STEAK YOU'LL EVER TASTE! :) No, REALLY! WORLDS BEST STEAK!

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

Ruth's Chris Steakhouses are always thought of as a top shelf restaurant with fantastic steaks. My title says it all. I was not impressed with the steak, shrimp or potato I ordered. However, the service was top notch and they pour a good cocktail. The steak was thinner than I thought it would be and the shrimp was smaller than... More

We had an outstanding dinner and service at Ruth Chris last night. Michael was very attentive and made my birthday dinner special. A little on the pricey side but after experiencing the quality of the food and service it was worth the cost. We will definitely be returning for our next special occasion.
