Our last meal here was take out which is always a risk. RCs made my night! Admittedly, $150 for take out is silly, but I wanted it and it was not a waste. They prepared the steaks so we could easily heat and eat without ruining them and the salad was crisp! Treat yourself to silly take out or... read more

Always excellent. Try the orange mojito - I had to get the recipe from them!! SO GOOD. The Sweet Potato Casserole is my favorite side dish. Steaks are great. My daughter doesn't eat red meat, but is always pleased with the salmon or chicken.

We celebrated my brother's birthday here last month. The service is really top notch and the steaks are exceptional. Our filets were amazing and the chocolate dessert was a perfect finish to a wonderful meal.

Needless to say, if you're a steak loving carnivore, this is your place. You really can't beat their steaks, they are very good but at a very nice price as well. Bring your pocketbook, it's ala carte.

The steaks at Ruth's Chris are excellent. It's what they know how to do and they deliver what they promise. There's no question that they charge a premium, but I can justify it for special occasions. One item is relatively moderate is their corkage fee -- $15. This can bring down the bill as their wine list focuses on more... More

Ruth's Chris is built up too much. I hate paying for each part of my meal separately and I feel that if I'm going to pay so much for my meal that I should have a quieter meal. It feels busy and somewhat overwhelming in the Ruth's Chris I've been to. The food is probably worth it for some, though... More

My wife and I are regulars at the bar. I travel a lot and when I fly home we usually stop by for a cocktail as it is so close to John Wayne Airport. Tovi and Brad have been there for years and they really know how to make you feel welcome.
