Lovely view of the harbor, and Valet parking makes it easy, instead of searching for a place. The décor was beautiful, the service was outstanding, and the food was wonderful. It was a lovely evening and a lovely respite for my husband and I. A...More

I’ve been to 6 different Ruth Chris Restaurants and none of them have disappointed me. Their stake is by far the BEST I have ever had. The staff is very welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. What you spend is what you get, nothing...More

Ruth's Chris Steak House specializes in serving aged USDA Prime steaks, broiled in a trademark 1800-degree oven and served on a plate heated to 500 degrees to ensure the steak stays "sizzling" hot. To experience fine dining at its best ... Just follow the sizzle...More

I went there with a few colleagues for a business dinner. It was a nice restaurant with good traditional menu. Service is great. If going there during summer, an early dinner with the view over the water will be a great add on.

When spending $150 per person on dinner you don’t expect entrees to be served before salads have been finished, or servers constantly bumping the back of your chair as they serve the table behind you (which was practically on top of ours). Both of these...More

The number one reason to have dinner here isn't the steaks...it's the atmosphere and personnel. They are nothing short of fabulous! The wait staff and their assistants were the best we have seen anywhere. The food is great, though we have had better steaks. Atmosphere...More

Ruth’s Chris is open daily 5:00-10:00 Saturday and Sunday 4:30-10:30. I don’t think they are ever closed at least not in San Diego.
