Great steaks

We have always wanted to try a Ruth Chris Steak House , and were not disappointed. The steaks were done perfectly, mushrooms to die for, green beans perfect. The service was excellent, although we felt a little rushed.

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

There is no denying that the steaks here are great. High quality meat, well marbled and coocked to perfection. The price tag is a bit hefty though in my opinion. Service was good.

We go to Ruth's everywhere we travel in the world and rate each one on ambiance, service, food quality, etc. We were very disappointed with this Ruth's. Although we got seated right away, we felt rushed throughout the entire meal. The front end manager even tried to take my husband's plate from him while he was still eating. The food... More

This was one of the most well cooked steak I have had in America. I ordered a medium rare and surprisingly it came out exactly medium rare. Fantastic! I ordered it with the peppercorn sauce which was amazing too and really went with the steak juice well. The Mac and cheese was a bit of a let down but we... More

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 expectations.

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.
