My husband and I went for Valentines Day during a vacation in San Juan. I had never been to a Ruth Chris before. They opened an additional room because they were very crowded. Looked like a room they use for private parties. It was one step up from a pathetic cafeteria that hadn't been used in years! It was such... More

We saw an advertisement for this renowned steak house which was only a short walk from the condo we rented in Carolina (Isla Verde area). However, had no interest at the time to spend $200 for dinner. Learned they have Happy Hour from 5:30 - 7:00 each evening other than Saturdays. My wife had the tenderloin/vegetable skewer (it's a small... More

Years ago this was the place for a great martini and a fantastic steak - pricey, but well worth it. San Juan Ruth's Chris has gone way downhill - ridiculously overpriced for the quality of the food. The poor service doesn't help - when I didn't receive what I ordered, the server told me "yes, you did order that", and... More

When I visit my parent's in Puerto Rico- they are retired and go every year for 6 weeks- we always go to Ruth Chris for happy hour to see Sally. Best bartender ever. I'm not one to go to chain type places but seeing her and her wonderful service is worth it. She makes a mean cocktail. The small list... More

This place was always on the top of it's game, our last two visits were disappointing. Hasn't been a corporate operated Ruth Chris's for sometime now, it's one of the few that are franchised and you are starting to be able to tell the difference. The restaurant is located in the Intercontinental Hotel in the past we always had a... More

My wife and I have always gone to Ruth Chris in Isla Verde for an early New Years Even dinner. Never again. When we made our reservations we were not told that they were serving only a price fixed menu. Consequently we could not get out favorite dashers. The steaks we were served we definitely not up to their standards... More

We had a dinner there last night and it was delicious! The staff was very friendly, helpful, and ever present. Our water glasses were never empty!

Spent a couple of days in San Juan prior to jumping on a ship for a 2 week cruise. Saw this by accident. We had gone to Moreton's the night before. Well what can I say was one of the best meals (steak) I have had. The menu was designed to suit all palette's & the service just added to... More

We dined in at Ruth Chris on Thanksgiving evening. It was everything we expected and more. From the wedge salad to our entrées of steak and portobello mushroom we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the atmosphere the same. The restaurant has no control over this but it is worth mentioning that two couples near our table were... More
