I eat at Ruth's Chris once or twice each year and have been to the ones in NOLA (the original), Houston, Dallas, and Irvine. It has become a tradition to dine with friends in Irvine when I'm in Orange County. Very friendly staff. 6 of us were there for 4-1/2 hours last Friday (including some time just enjoying fine wine...

I have been very fortunate to have been to Ruth's Chris Steak House many times, as the service, ambiance and food, are always superb and tonight was more of the same. Our reservations were accurate and the receptionist was waiting for us when we entered the building . As my husband had told them at the time of the reservations... More

It's understood by most that Ruth Chris is the best. I can truly say that this year at this Irvine Ruth Chris it certainly was just that. It was a very personal birthday experience from the moment I arrived to celebrate my Birthday and a friends. She had rib steak and lobster and I had the bone in filet as... More

Great food and service but they recently installed new LED lighting and it's really really bright.... Ruined the ambiance. It was also extremely cold and the music was so quiet you could barely hear it.

We have never had a bad meal at Ruth's Chris. The quality and way the steaks are prepared have no equals. The service is equally impressive. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Pros: Great service, pleasant atmosphere, quiet enough that one could hear others at the table without shouting, which itslef is a unique experience in this town, enormous wine list. Cons: Pass on the creamed spinach, it's terrible, they should relearn the recipe from any Lawry's restaurant, a little too dark, couldn't see my steak to cut it.

Came here for our anniversary dinner and had the best time! Arrived early enough to enjoy the great happy hour deals in the bar and then moved to the main room for dinner. $9 drinks and $9 appetizers that could have been a meal all on its own. When we mentioned to the busser it was our anniversary he notified... More
