I try to eat dinner here whenever I'm in Pasadena. Everything is prepared with care. The food is always sublime. Not only does the kitchen know exactly what it's doing, but the wait staff seems to really like working there. Everyone is always friendly and...More

We’ve been to this location in the past and it was great. However, this time it was not to be. We both ordered the petite filet rare, but only one came as ordered. The two cuts tasted completely different, and for the prices we expect...More

We throughly enjoyed our dinner and found the service to be good. I was somewhat suprised to see the extremely casual attire of some of the guests and think it would be nicer if there were separate dining areas but it is what it is.

We got a walk-in table for 2 at 7:30 on a Friday. The restaurant has an expensive ambiance due to well controlled and low lighting and plenty of wood and nice fabrics. I learned after visiting that it is a chain, but clearly this is...More

We usually avoid chain restaurants when we have a choice, but this Ruth's Chris is always excellent...the service is very good and they will go out of the way to please you if they can. For instance, if you would like the "old style" bread...More

We were at Ruth’s Chris during a recent business trip. Ruth’s Chris are pretty standard with excellent quality across the US but I did find this visit to be excellent. I had the calamari, ribeye and lobster Mac n cheese. It was phenomenal

You are well welcomed. The decoration is kind of classic. The menu offers different type of meat. Meat is delicious, perfectly cooked, being served into very hot plates. The gratin was nice but far away from a genuine French gratin (potatoe slices were too thick...More
