Steak and desserts are great!

My husband and I went here for a special dinner. The service was spot on. I enjoyed our appetizer of calamari and my steak, although salty was good. I had the petite filet. The shrimp that came with it was pretty bland. My mashed potatoes were blah. We didn't actually finish them. My... read more

I've heard Ruth's Chris Steak House ads on the radio all my life, but I didn't go until recently. Granted, I was there only for happy hour and not for a formal meal, but still, first impressions are difficult to undo. The lounge was packed, but we managed to find seats at the bar. Ruth's Chris being famous for its... More

The steaks at Ruth's Chris are exceptional and cooked to perfection. Because everything is priced ala carte, the bill adds up quickly. Side items are outrageously overpriced. The salads enjoyed by my group were also excellent. Potatoes not so much. Dessert was on par with a restaurant of this caliber. Service was outstanding, attentive, yet not intrusive -- just that...

Singapore has a Ruth Chris, but no done-in ones due to mad cow. So decided to have this since the restaurant was so close to Hilton. Had the done in USDA and the phenomenal crab cake ! Boy it was soooo good! The service was impeccable. The desert cheese cake was to die for.

My wife and I had the Ahi Tuna appetizer. It was seared to perfection. We both had the 3 course dinner. The creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were like candy. Food was hot; salads were crisp. Service was exceptional. We sat in the bar area; great atmosphere. It appeared everyone there was having a good time. Kudos to Ruth Chris's... More

We arrived early for our 8:15 reservation and after checking in, had a seat at the bar. I just love the atmosphere in both the bar and the dining rooms: warm, very comfortable, and perfectly lit. We ordered two wonderfully crafted, ice-cold martinis, and it wasn't long before the hostess came to escort us to our table. I love that... More

Hubby & I in town for a medical reason and wanted a perfect evening and dinner. Ruth Chris in Portland could not have done a better job. The steaks were melt in your mouth to die for, accompanying dishes were luscious and nothing needs to be said about dessert other than Yummy!

Who knew that Ruth's Chris has such a fantastic happy hour menu in their bar? Served from 4:30pm to 7pm, this is a great option for having a drink and a light meal before a movie or concert in downtown Portland. There is a short list of small plate and drinks for $8 each. Including slices of deep fried lobster... More
