Description: In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans named Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That's how the uniquely name Ruth's Chris Steak House was born. Ruth established this unique restaurant with no restaurant experience, but she vowed to treat every customer like a guest in her own home. And she clearly knew what steak lovers wanted - the very best beef. Today, as always, Ruth's Chris serves only the finest corn-fed Midwestern beef available, broiled in 1800-degree ovens designed by Ruth herself. The steaks are served sizzling on 500-degree plates so every bite is hot and delicious. And while steak is king, the menu also includes expertly executed seafood, lamb, pork, and poultry dishes, as well as classic appetizers, fresh salads, side dishes, and homemade desserts. The award-winning wine list features more than 250 world-class international and domestic labels. Whatever the occasion, Ruth's Chris Steak House is the perfect spot to gather. Unparalleled cuisine, sumptuous surroundings and service that's accomplished yet never fussy - these are the elements of memorable special events.

Like all RuthsChris steakhouses this is expensive.. and good.. but also like the others it has a great happy hour, a really nice bar and delicious specials. We enjoyed the Ahi style Tuna, Oysters Rockafella, beef Carpaccio and some yummy ravioli. They generally have a draft beer thats inexpensive and good too. As long as you dont mind eating before 7pm this is a great deal in an otherwise expensive part of Honolulu

Going in we knew it was pricey and that's ok, we had eaten at the one back home and it was very good. What we didn't expect was such poor food. Our calamari was way over cooked, tasted like leather and roughed up the inside of your month. My potato which costs $10 was also over done and just barely warm. The steaks were hot but nothing special at all. Steaks that are $50 each need to be special and these were not. Would never recommend anyone go to the steak house.

On making our reservation we were asked if we were celebrating any occasion and I mentioned it was our 30th wedding anniversary. On our arrival we were met with congratulations and taken to a booth table with a line of scatter rose petals. all staff who came to the table offered their congratulations.

The steaks and side dishes were exceptionally good, as were the desserts.

All round a very enjyable meal and experience.

Thank Monument

The steaks were perfectly seasoned and cooked. Unfortunately the mushrooms, creamed spinach, and mash potatoes were the worse we ever had. The chefs need to visit Mastros or Capital Grill to see what they're missing!

This is one of my favorite steakhouses and favorite restaurants in Waikiki. I've eaten here several times over the past four years during a number of trips for surfing in Hawaii. I usually eat the bar. The restaurant can often be crowded and noisy and filled with tourists, but this is the case just about anywhere in Waikiki. It's an upscale restaurant, but you can dress very casually. The service at the bar is very fast and friendly, but if you just want to hang out, watch TV, and take your time drinking, that's cool with them, too. Russell is one of their servers at the bar - he's very enthusiastic, friendly, and welcoming. I usually go with the filet, which is always cooked perfectly. The veal appetizer is delicious as well. Highly recommended.
