“What restaurants are for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I have decided that having a steak done absolutely perfect like at Ruth's is why God invented restaurants. Not a lot of fancy or exotic ingredients , perfect is good enough.

“Excellent Bar Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Came here for a late night snack after seeing a performance at Arlene Schnitzer Auditorium. It was just two blocks a way. Enjoyed selecting from a nice variety of beers, including the Boneyard IPA (love it). The burger was Incredible and cooked perfectly juicy. The ahi tuna also was seared perfectly and the "spirited sauce" was a surprise mustard sauce, spicy but tasty! Regular prices on the bar menu were $10-16. The happy hour looks fabulous - really? 4 to 7pm and prices were all $7!!! We had walked by earlier in the evening and it was packed, which is why we came back later that evening and we were glad we did! Delicious food.

“Great steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This was my first time to the new location. It was a nice upgrade. Parking is abundant and valet is $9 (not a bad deal)
Interior was very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful as usual. Not nearly as noisy as the prior location. I visited in the middle of January and every time someone opened the front door it would be felt all over the room. Some sort of winter portico or second set of doors would do the trick.
Food was as always great. I had the filet and lobster tail. Steak was perfect but parts of the lobster were translucent and a little chewy.

“Portland Ruth Chris exceptional service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have enjoyed Ruth Chris's in Hong Kong, Hawaii and many state side locations. This was our first visit to the Portland Location.
We really want to compliment our server Steve and the staff of this location for the wonderful care and great food. We have always been happy with our Ruth Chris dining experiences but this visit was exceptional in all respects.
With Ruth Chris, the food, service and ambiance are all part of the experience that you are paying for and well worth it!

“Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Ruth's Chris is a good steakhouse. Spendy and not very personal. The side dishes are actually my favorite! There is plenty with one order for a table of 4. I had to send my steak back, it was grisely and not prepared to medium rare. The garlic mashed potatoes were great! Valet parking that you pay for!! UGH! You would think with a bill over $200.00 they could cover the parking!
