I had dined at both locations of Ruth's this trip and the location at Restaurant Row is by far and away the finest on the island. The food is roughly the same between the two locations, but the service at this location and the flavor of the coffee at this location is simply superb.
We found the attitude of the staff at this location to be very helpful and not with a lot ot attitude. The location at Waikiki has the same food, but the staff at Restaurant Row makes your dining experience memorable and fun. I really like the Ahi tuna. I think their Ahi is the best on the island. Every time i am in town, I return for the Ahi and a glass of wine. Great food, great waiters and they are starting to know me, so great friends.
Try this place. Best of the Best in my view.
