Tonight was our first time eating at Ruth's Chris steakhouse. Although this is a chain restaurant it had all the ambiance of an exclusive fine dining establishment. The crab cakes were amazing! My friend enjoyed a filet and lobster combo and definitely don't miss the sweet potato casserole. For the ultimate in service and wine knowledge I would ask for... More

We have visited this wonderful steakhouse numerous times over the last year. The steaks are made exactly to the needs of each patron, and the accompanying sauces and vegetable choices are also delightful. The restaurant has an unblocked view if the sea across the road. Staff are well- trained to take care of your every need, and there are few... More

Lovely meal and very attentive service. Good table with great views of the harbour. Waiters were very good and recommended items from the menu which were very appropriate. Really enjoyed our evening. Thanks to all at Ruth Chris.

The customer service we received from Connor was great. The steak was fantastic, don't eat a big lunch on the day you go as you will not want to leave anything on your plate. This is a very popular restaurant and I would recommend booking a table.

....well the best I've had to date. We were at a conference and it became like a tour of the steakhouses each evening. We all agreed that this place had the best steaks. It comes at a price, but it was worth it. Lovely setting, views over the bay. Great service. Unmissable!

Ruth's Chris is next to the Wyndham hotel almost across from the Maritime Museum (Star of India ship). Very pricey, but worth it - expect to spend at least $100 for a couple. The entire side of the restaurant is windows overlooking the harbor. We were seated next to a window but it's laid out so that each table is... More

In-town for a conference, I elected to dine here as it was steps from my hotel. The good news is that I did not wait for a table (5:30pm, Monday evening). The waitstaff were extremely pleasant & took my order immediately. Chop salad: Where were the heart-of-palm & olives?? Next, the very expensive ($44) petite ribeye. Yes, the server had... More
