“Birthday celebration”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We went to Ruth’s Chris to celebrate my husband’s birthday.

Trying to find parking was a bear, after we parked 2 blocks away and walked to the restaurant we noticed they offered valet parking. There are no signs indicating valet parking from the street, Ruth’s Chris is located on the Wyndham Hotel site.

Once we were seated at our table we noticed there wasn’t much room between the tables and the isles. The staff and patrons had to walk single file through the isles in order to not bump into each other.

The food is al a carte, make sure when ordering sides there’s enough for two people to share. There’s no need to order several sides unless you’re extremely hungry. The food is amazing, keep in mind they cook everything in butter. If you’re watching your weight make sure you tell them no butter.

I was very surprised they don’t do anything special when you’re celebrating a birthday or anniversary. I was expecting them to bring my husband a dish of ice cream or a piece of cake in honor of his day.

We probably won’t go back; there are other steak houses just as good and much cheaper, with plenty of parking!

“Superb steaks”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Great friendly service and wonderful food. The last two Ruth's Chris steak houses that we have eaten at [in Hong Kong & San Francisco] have been a dissappointment but San Diego restored our faith in the chain. The steaks were out of this world. And you get a nice view over the waterfront as a bonus.

“This location appears to be slipping”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Although the service was excellent, the restaurant appears to be in need of a re-do. The tablecloth was stained and the glassware was spotted. However, the food was up to par; we shared a crabtini appetizer and a small ribeye along with a side of lyonnaise potatoes.

“5 Star Steaks”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

It's Ruth Chris' what else can I say except that it is across from the bay so the view is excellent and the atmosphere is nice. I hold our companies annual sales dinner here and now I have to start being selective on whom I invite because they enjoy coming here to much.
