Delicious choices and impeccable service. This is not a place I would normally take children and the menu is totally a la carte so can be quite expensive. Recommend for adults for a special night out.

We have always enjoyed Ruth's Chris's food and service in the past but this time the service was very good as usual but the stakes were way below par. My wife's stake was almost to tough to cut and after two try's the potato's were still cold in the middle.What a let down

We always enjoy going to this particular Ruth's Chris location. The steak is fabulous and the service is great. Be sure to make reservations and ask for a table with a view of the bay. Share your sides as they are very large. My husband enjoys the seafood along with the steak. Park in the garage behind the restaurant and... More

I should have known better! Half an hour wait for our reservation. Every seat in the restaurant taken. The noise level was so loud that it was impossible to carry on a conversation across the table. The food was great but the noise factor spoiled the evening for us all.

After a cross-country flight, manager surprised us by seating us a few minutes early on the porch overlooking the harbor. We enjoyed beverages and a couple entrees from their Happy Hour menu. Perfect end to a long day - and it was only 6pm local time! Server Ben was attentive and friendly.

I was in San Diego for a family matter, staying at the Wyndham San Diego Bay- this particular Ruth's Chris is part of the hotel complex. I made an early 5pm reservation and was seated... More

Went for dinner and had reservations for 6pm. Were promptly seated and our waiter was very helpful and took care of us really well. We had a bottle of wine, and I had the Cowboy steak--excellent cut with good marbling for flavor + served on a plate that was 600 degrees in melted butter? OMG--very flavorful. I had mashed potatoes,... More
