We had dinner here our first night in town. It was excellent. The service was very good as was the food. The steak was one of the best I have ever had. It is pricy, but worth it!

For the money you would spend on a luau, you can have a very nice meal at Ruth Chris Steak House. Amazing steak, amazing service. We always go for the early 3-course special which leaves us feeling like we've had more than enough to eat. This visit was our 3rd visit to Hawaii where we did this instead of a... More

This is the one folks. I'm not a huge carnivore, but from time to time I get a hankering for a toothsome steak. I formerly felt the Waikiki outpost was better, but having recently dined in both I can say unequivocally the downtown version is the better of the two. They NAIL it on cooking, and everything from the service... More

I don't make enough money to eat here often; however, of the 3 times I've gotten to come here and experience the fine dining atmosphere, I have left each time absolutely satisfied. I love getting the ribeye (my fave cut), with the creamed spinach. I'm Filipino, so I love rice, however the creamed spinach is so good that I can... More

Wonderful beef steaks! We ordered two courses plus some shrimps and shared them with my wife and daughter. The amount was still more than enough for us three. Since we did not book a table beforehand, we went there a little early around 5pm. Already there were some groups of people waiting in a queue, but in five minutes, we... More

We arrived before they opened and waited at a table outside until they came to seat us in the bar area. It was jus the two of us and we had a wonderful time.

Great service and great steaks. My friends totally enjoyed their cowboy ribeye steaks while I enjoyed their lamb chops. The lamb chops were well seasoned and cooked to perfection. The sides of au gratin, asparagus, and creamed spinach complimented the steaks. Service was professional and attentive. Finished the meal with a hot fudge sundae. Highly recommend dining there.

If you do nothing else before you die, then you MUST have one of Ruth's filets. It was SENSATIONAL. End of story!

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.
