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

I don't like to write negative reviews, I'll make an exception here. The steak was good, but I've never returned to any Ruth Chris Steak House. I received a lukewarm reception. Now I admit I am nothing special to look at and was simply attired wearing jeans and a collared shirt, underdressed compared to most of the other customers (heard... More

My boyfriend and I came to Ruth Chris for restaurant week. We needed up doing the seared ahi, shrimp cocktail, petite filet, stuffed chicken, cheesecake/ice cream, and chocolate cake. It was delicious. The service was great. My drink was refilled even before I was done with it. We will definitely return soon.

The first time I had Ruth's Chris Steak House was at the Del Mar location for a company Christmas party so when my brother in law decided that he wanted to have his birthday celebration at Ruth's Chris I was excited to be able to have a real full on dining experience. We had an early dinner reservation and were... More

This restaurant is outdated anywhere you look at it. Starting with the ugly stairs rug, the old shades covering the beautiful view of the san diego harbor and last the old menu that offers nothing exciting or innovative (but they do offer extremely high prices) I would rather go to Flemmings or Mortons where I will be surrounded by a...
