I went here for a night cap. The bartender was delightful and very attentive. Though I did not eat here, the men next to me at the bar did and the food looks as good as what I have had before when I came a long time ago The only negative is the facilities are stuck in a timewarp it... More

The servers did an amazing job of making sure every guest had a great experience. The food, of course, goes without saying, was outstanding! Thank you to management and the... More

Made reservations on Open Table. We were promptly greeted at the door by a very professional perhaps manager or asst manager. We brought our own birthday cake which... More

When we checked in, the hostess greeted us warmly and told him 'Happy Birthday.' I... More

Ruth Chris offers quality steaks at expensive prices along the harbor front in San Diego. Standard Ruth Chris dining but a little more casual given the often very casually attired tourist clientele. Nothing out of the ordinary but high quality steakhouse food and service.
