Th whole experience was grade A! The service was exemplary, the food was even better if that is possible. The restaurant sits so you look out at San Diego Bay so the view is beautiful. Very busy restaurant but somehow did not seem loud at all. We highly recommend...

We have been to Happy Hour at Ruth's Chris by the Harbor twice (18 people one time, 2 people the other). We found the $8 drinks and appetizers among the best in town, with good service and an attractive setting. Several of us would have liked a "well drink" option on the Happy Hour menu because the cocktails offered, while... More

The menu had a focused selection of steakhouse food. The wine list also had a good variety to choose from. The food was very good and the ambiance was peaceful and even romantic. The service was great. It is expensive though. It can range from 60 to 100 dollars per person if you have an appetizer, an entree and 2... More

We made a reservation for a special occasion and the entire meal was absolutely magical from beginning to end. The food, beginning with the appetizer was delectable and the waiters were assistive with bread, etc. Our view of the Bay was beautiful and our steaks were absolutely mouthwatering. Our evening could not have been any better. It is worth every... More

I happen to like Ruth Chris and their 3 course specials. Never been unhappy with service or food. Waiter was prompt and on top of everything for serving us.

Let me get started by saying that this is a good restaurant: good service, good food, clean place, good location, etc. However, for the price you pay and the wait time I would expect a lot more than "good" or actually "okay". First, we made reservations but when we got there we still had to wait 30-45 minutes to be... More

My husband and I were staying near by this restaurant while on our honeymoon for a couple of nights and decided to try it one night instead of walking to the gas lamp district and were we glad we did! The food here is amazing! I had the double chicken breast which came with a beautiful sauce, it was really... More

Hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. The place is overcrowded with tables and people were literally elbow to elbow. Sit on the patio if weather permits. The view is nice and you have a little more space. The clientele was mixed as was the attire ranging from date night dressed up to just got off the beach and... More
