Best steak ever

Although the prices quoted for dinner were expensive once you have tasted the meal you just have to say 'value for money'. The New York cut steak was the best I have tasted anywhere. All the accompaniments were larger than you could jump over and again the quality was unbeatable. I had an ice cold... read more

This is one of our favourite spots to 'hang-out' in the evening in Waikiki. The lively bar section is friendly and serves all the restaurant food as well as some 'happy hour' specials. The bar has a casual ambiance and is a great place to be if you are dining alone. Lots of interesting folks to chat with and a... More

It's not the first time we visited a Ruth's Chris, like always the service is always outstanding and very attentive. The food was perfect like usual and everything was delicious. It is expensive but worth it.

We were a party of 3. With cocktails, bill was $340 with tip an even $400. Atmosphere was very good, as was the service. The food was a miss, in my opinion. Ordered a filet cooked medium and got a very rare steak (see pic). My son didn't speak up until the end of the meal because he doesn't like... More

We visit this chain when we travel around the states (we love the steak and mash). On this occasion the food and service was very good but the price was more expensive than the mainland. We were a bit shocked and it didn't help when you convert to AUD. My petite filet was AUD$61! Lucky I was on holidays and... More

They have a vegetarian platter that I was very surprised they would even offer. I'm the only vegetarian in an omnivorous family. It was tasty and filling, but if I could make one suggestion, it would be to add more of a protein to the platter, like beans. You can add two sides that should satisfy the starch/protein need. The... More

I would rate this restaurant at 3 1/2 stars, which is actually a brutal review for a restaurant in this price range. We asked for 5 minutes to look over the menu to decide on everything, and then our waiter hovered over us. The meal's pacing was way too quick, and we ended up having to ask that he please... More

We visited Ruth's Chris for dinner and were seated next to a table with 5 or 6 adults and 3 babies/toddlers. At some point, the children became antsy and the adults decided to pacify them by showing the videos on 3 different phones with the sound turned on loudly. So during our dinner we were serenaded repeatedly by Elsa advising... More

Ruth Chris consistently pleases from appetizers, to entrees and deserts! Their staff is always courteous, friendly and helpful. The quality of their food is high and always perfectly prepared and served. I rarely eat red meat and when I do, am particular about quality of cut and preparation. The filet mignon and lamb are always perfected grilled. The seafood is... More
