We love Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, but not the one in Irvine. We have been to others but the one in Irvine does not live up to the standard. It could be that it was Christmas Eve. but when you are spending this kind of money...More

We went for a VERY early New Year’s Eve dinner. Pleasantly surprised that we were not rushed AT ALL! We had exceptional service from start to finish! They had a very well thought out “special” 3 course meal along with the regular menu. The special...More

Nothing compares to Ruth's Filet!. And Chris's sides are great too! Service is the best in town. Always a problem with parking, I recommend just valat service. And expect traffic getting to the restaurant. Good EATS!

I sat at the bar to start and the bar tenders were awesome. When my party arrived we sat in the way back in a nice 3 person booth. Service was good, food was excellent. The Ribeye's were superb. They are currently remodeling and perhaps...More

This is our favorite steakhouse in the area. Even though it is a chain, the Ruth's Chris steak houses tend to differ one from the other. The Irvine Ruth's Chris is definitely in a class by itself. The atmosphere is elegant but relaxed. The service...More
