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

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

Arguably best Happy Hour in Portland. Great menu, interesting cocktails,and warm ambiance and great value (Ago Tuna less than $10.00). Our group had all appetizers and we were full. It's classical and traditional and yet has a contemporary feeling. Patrons still hold to a dress code which is to say it has standards. If it can do all this and... More

Requested my rib eye cooked medium. I received it medium rare. When mentioned to waiter I was told they try to under cook it a little because of the plate being hot. It was cooked medium rare not a little under medium, it's just that simple. I understand that in any busy restaurant mistakes happen, no problem. It would have... More

In June of this year, I experienced Ruth Chris's in two cities. Salt Lake City (reviewed here) and Portland, Oregon. Both experiences were above average and a solid steakhouse meal. I am reluctant to give high end chain-restaurants top marks, but Ruth Chris arose to the occasion on both meals. The wine list and menu are varied enough for most... More

Went to this expensive restaurant for a local special they ran. We both ordered a petite filet. Presentation was flat. I ordered my steak medium well and it arrived ready to walk off the plate. I did send it back and when it arrived it looked and tasted like it had been nucked and was ready for the shoe makers... More

My wife and I were told the restaurant was closed at 10:30 on a Saturday night and to find a seat at the bar. After sitting there and being ignored for 20 minutes we got up and left. We went down the street to Yard House and were seated and served promptly. Very dissapointed in Ruth's Chris Portland. This is... More

I personally have never imagined paying such a high price for a steak.....but I can honestly say it was worth it at this restaurant. This must be one of the flagship restaurants in the chain; the ambiance and décor took me back to New Orleans. The food was amazing...steaks perfectly cooked, spinach, corn and tower of French fries all so... More

My wife and I went here for my 40th. Big deal for this guy so a nice chunk of bovine was in order. Walked in and was immediately impressed by the ambiance. We had reservations so we were seated almost immediately. Wait staff were prompt and not bothersome throughout the meal. Kristin appeared at the right times. What struck me... More
