My wife saw an ad for happy hour meals at Ruth's Chris so we decided to give it a try. The surf and turf special was very good; three decent size shrimp and a larger than expected filet. The special also included a nice glass of rose. Even when preceded by reduced price cocktails we got out for under $100.... More

Steak and main dishes were perfect. Not sure why the salad needs to be 14.00 though. I mean, lettuce is lettuce.

The food there is pretty good, but it's a bit pricey. Have eaten food just as good at other places for about half the price. I guess it's about atmosphere with this place. If you want to feel upper-class then this is a good place for you.

Excellent service, albeit a little expensive. Corkage price higher than most restaurants but the experience was very favorable. Food was very good. Went with my wife and we both enjoyed the ambiance and service. It was my first visit when I wasn't alone. Looking forward to returning to your restaurant and intend on bringing the family in when the occasion... More

Finally, a steak house that has one vegetarian item listed on their menu. I always have to go off menu and request something, but not here!

Just get the filet and you will not be sorry. The sides are delicious as well, but are not necessary, however the asparagus and mashed potatoes are bomb! Ambiance is very chill, low lighting, but not too fond of the service here in Irvine. Probably because I like to walk in with sweat pants on and a hoodie at times,... More

Our table was ready at exactly the time of our reservation. Our waiter was very attentive and made a couple of useful suggestions. My wife order the filet while I ordered the Rib Eye. Both steaks were cooked perfectly and both had great flavor. Overall, we were quite pleased with our dinner.

A special night out for a fabulous steak dinner... this is the place to go. The ambience and service were very good, attentive and non pretentious. We had stuffed mushrooms and seared ahi as an appetizer which was very good. I ordered the wedge salad that was huge!!! It was so good and loaded with bleu cheese and bacon. I... More
