“Not up to the standards one expects of Ruth's Chris”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

I've dined at numerous Ruth's Chris restaurants are the country and, up until now, they have been quite good. Their Woodland Hills location was the exception to the rule.

The service was, at best, poor. The menus were tattered and dirty. The overall experience was underwhelming. In fact, the only thing that was on a par with other Ruth's Chris locations was the price,

“Great Valentines Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2011

I work weeknights and find it hard to take my wife out for Valentines dinner. We made reservations (highly recommend) at Ruth's Chris Woodland Hills for Sunday night February 13'th instead. Our reservation hostess 'Courtney' was very pleasant and accommodating to our wants (my wife HAS to have a booth). I made these reservations in late January. Good thing because the place was packed out the door when we arrived at 6:00 PM.
We were greeted by the General Manager 'Frank' , Bar Manager ''Elias', and our hostess 'Courtney'. We were promptly seated and assigned to 'Kay' our waitress. We ordered a nice red wine and the Calamari appetizer. The Calamari is perfectly done and is a little spicy. The house salad was next with ranch dressing. My wife had the New York Strip and I had the Rib eye for the main course. We also ordered a side of mashed potatoes and Broccoli Au-Gratin. The steaks were done perfectly and the side dishes hot. Dessert was Berries in cream (to die for). The meal was perfect and the surroundings great. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. We look forward for our next visit even though the drive is over an hour from our home. Entire meals start at around $40.00 and are worth every penny.

“Great Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2010

Just celebrated our 2 daughters birthday at Ruth Chris in Woodland Hills, Ca. We were greeted and seated promptly by the hostesses. Our waiters P J and Jeff were absolutely fantastic. Laurie the Manager and Frank the General Manager welcomed us with a superb Calamari appetizer. Frank seconded as the Chef and prepared the most succulent dinner we have had in months. The Rib Eyes are to die for served on a heated plate with melted butter. The wine selection is very good with several in-expensive reds.
I hear people complain that they are too expensive, but if you figure for $40.00 you can get a complete meal in the atmosphere that Ruth Chris is noted for I say go for it. Life is too short to eat fast food.
