Awesome as expected

Going to start this off with a few gripes. I made reservations for a party of three at eight pm on the balcony. We got there ten minutes till and waited twenty after and they almost gave my table to someone else. To their credit the place was crazy. When the host showed us to our table he sat us... read more

Excellent food and location! Try Happy Hour if you want to avoid the high prices. My wife & I ate here for less than $22 total and had a great experience.

This restaurant is very expensive for what you get. We had a chicken breast and did not get a salad with that or anything else and it cost $70.00! We were not happy and still hungry!

Tasty but pricey with a great view of the bay and very good service. Restaurant was conveniently next door to our hotel Wyndham Bayside.

The Ruth Chris chain is reliable good and the San Diego branch seems to be even one of the better. The food was excellent and the service was great. I had reserved a table for twelve and we got a nice seperate room were everything was as it should be. Superb food, nice wines and a great service.

I was in town for a conference and called in an order to pick on the way back to my hotel. I went to the bar and was standing there waiting to be helped and some guy walked in, sat down, and the bartender greeted and took his order before acknowledging me. Food was only fair - not anywhere worth... More

Pricey as heck, but good food. There are many steakhouses in San Diego and Ruth's Chris is among the better ones. I think they are overpriced when it comes to side dishes, but the red meats are top notch. Staff is very good and you feel important to them.

I love this restaurant, starting with the ambiance continue with the service following with the food and finish with the view. We went to celebrate well nothing, we just hanging out with my husband and having a romantic dinner, I ordered the filet and lobster and the appetizer was carpaccio, so delicious, there was a busy night, but the service...
