Wonderful birthday dinner

We went for the first time on the night before embarking on a week-long trip to Hawaii for my birthday. Tip #1: Just pay the $9 for valet parking. So much easier than trying to find parking if you aren't super familiar with downtown Portland. We had a great experience. Food and service met our high... read more

Wow, this place was extremely disappointing last night compared to other times we have visited. The steaks were OVER cooked, dry. As for the servers....RUSH RUSH RUSH!!! I was still eating my dinner when I was asked if I would like a to-go box??!!! They cleared the table and rushed us through the meal so fast, AMERICANS....!!!! We actually like... More

Three of us visited Ruth's Chris Steak house for our last meal in Portland, and we definitely saved the best for last, and we'd had some great meals! From the minute we walked in the door we were made to feel special. The service was top knotch as was the food. One person said her rib eye steak was the... More

Very nice happy hour! I haven't been here for dinner but can attest to a high level of service and good happy hour food menu. I don't understand why Ruth's Chris locations don't advertise happy hour menus on their website tough.

We love the Cowboy Ribeyes here - bone in. Took my son last week and we enjoyed tasty calamari, good salads, the BEST steaks, sides and deserts. Yum! We feel these are the best steaks on the planet!

I really enjoyed a recent lunch seminar I attended at this location in Portland. Great steak, cooked to perfection, wonderful sides, with creamed spinach that'll knock your socks off. The service, for the size of group we had was outstanding! Nice location, downtown PDX, with many hotels very close by, and right in the middle of everything.

Ruth's Chris is the third stop in my quest to sample all of Portland's top steak houses. The 12 oz ribeye was perfectly prepared, served on a sizzling HOT plate, and needed no toppings or extra sauces to be enjoyed to the fullest! I was dining with a fellow steak lover who also ordered the ribeye, and we gave both... More

Had a Thanksgiving Dinner...not turkey but "signature" steak. Everything is al la carte..potatoes..baked and au gratin not done. Steak pretty good. Salad was a salad. Okay but over priced and over rated.

Most steak houses aren't worth what they charge. Ruth's Chris is one that is. The steaks are great and the service is outstanding.. We even went there for their Thanksgiving Dinner (who knew?) which was also wonderful. The turkey was succulent, the sides were good and the small desert (pumpkin pie with vanilla ice-cream) was just right. They even gave... More

This is an expensive but good restaurant. Everything is good with one exception - the servers are high pressure sales!! Our sad 'my personal favorite' no matter what we chose. Went thru the menu as if everything was a 'special'. We are very familiar with this Ruth's Chris and go whenever we visit Portland but it would be a 5... More
