Better make a reservation in advance because this steak house is ALWAYS full for dinner. Steaks are the best in the area and service is excellent. The sweet potato casserole is phenomenal. I hate sweet potatoes but this side dish is an absolute must try.
Good food – I have had some dishes(crab cakes) that are very below average/ The filets are usually good thought and the sides are creative and tasty.
overall...a great night out!! – The food is fantastic. The price is fair for what you get. My steak was cooked to perfection. The waiter was awesome. Overall...a great nigt out!!
Outstanding Steak – My father got me started on Ruth's Chris, probably about 20 years ago... at the Scottsdale establishment.
Ever since, I've been hooked, and have now got my wife hooked.
This has been our "go-to" Ruth's for a number of years... however, they have since opened one in Anaheim that has a nicer ambiance. Perhaps due to the ambiance, the one in Anaheim delivers a touch more.. but both are amazing (as are all RC).
Amazing steaks, simmering in butter. The broccoli au gratin is my favorite side, the the creme brulee is the best out there.
five BIG 'ol stars!
Great Food – The lobster bisque is divine, filet mignon is tender and juicy, bread is delicious when hot and the bread pudding and creme brulee are one of the best! Quality of food and service are very consistent. I would dine here everyday if I could afford it. Enough said!
Look 4ward To This! – The Location in Irvine NEVER disappoints. Ruth Chris' Steakhouse is well known for having
nothing less than superior steaks. So rather than stating the obvious, let me tell you about this
establishment. Each time I call to make reservations (whether 2pple or 10pple), I have never had
an issue with securing a reasonable request. We ask for a specific server (Karen), and have always
been accommidated. While making my reservations, their computer system indictated our
server preference. In addition, the hostess made small talk about facts (our server obviously noted
on our computer information). This is noting earth shattering, but because I am a relatively simple man,
it is a pleasure to be singled out as an "individual" in Orange County.
** The Experience: We arrive and are greeted with a warm welcome. Seating is done promptly, but if there
is a wait, the casual bar is a nice place for a "starter-drink." Once seated, the staff is extremely attentive, but not overbearing. A nice selection of Wine's, Martini's, or Spirit's to compiment the evening. The food is always served as ordered. My Wife is extremely specific regarding her orders, while I am simply a meat and potato's guy. Therefore, It is always a "pleasure" when HER food is served 100% correctly. As they are known for, the STEAKS are Perfect! Since I am a meat lover, I order 2 Entree's each time I visit. A STEAK and the LAMB CHOPS! What a treat~
Appetizers & Salads: Good selection, yet routine. Served Perfectly
MEATS: Steaks are beyond Superb / LAMB CHOPS Great (sometimes excessive fat, but that is rare)
SIDES: Good selection and ordered individually. Large Servings will serve 2-3 each order.
DESSERTS: Hard to choose, because 5 of 7, are the most incredible treats I've ever tasted.
PRICE: Not Cheap, but if you know this, "spoil yourself," this is the place to do it!
The Experience is Excellent~Bring Friends, and leave a lasting positive impression.
***ONE of ORANGE COUNTY's BEST***
GREAT STEAK – This place is just fantastic...great food. However, the last time the cut of the steak wasn't up to par. Perhaps a little bit of pinch from economic strain. But at the least always a favorite place to eat.
Good Food, Excellent Service – I went to Ruth's Chris last night and had high expectations after reading a bunch of Yelp reviews. Before last night the last time I had been to Ruth's Chris (Beverly Hills) was years ago...and I remember the food tasting a lot better back then! We had the Summer Celebrations for Two ($89). I ordered the petite filet, medium rare. It came out medium to medium well. My husband ordered the same thing, and he got it medium rare. The filet was still tender, but I was disappointed that the cook didn't get the order right. The creamed spinach was a bit on the watery side as I read in reviews, so I expected it, but it was still good. The sauteed mushrooms were good, very flavorful. We really enjoyed the seafood gumbo. Had the bread pudding with whiskey sauce, which was yummy...definitely could taste the whiskey! Had that with with some good coffee. Our server, Ryan, was very attentive and pleasant. I would go back to this location, but next time I'd try the ribeye.
Overall Experience = Good
Food = Good (but not great)
Service = Excellent
Sophisticated American chain serves up corn-fed USDA prime cuts and New Orleans-style appetizers and sides. – In Short
This offshoot of a popular New Orleans hangout for politicians features decor of dark woods and comfortable booths, with a separate bar scene. Choice cuts of custom-aged beef arrive in sizzling butter on 500-degree plates. The menu also offers chicken, pork and seafood entrees along with Creole appetizers like shrimp remoulade. Family-style sides include gargantuan onion rings, creamed spinach and various styles of potatoes. Traditional homemade desserts like cheesecake and bread pudding conclude the meal.
A disappointment – I don't really like steak so I'm ultra particular about eating it. The steak at Ruth Chris is nice but I didn't think it had so much flavor. It was definitely not memorable. What was memorable was the service and the wine that our server selected. I wouldn't bother going to Ruth Chris if Flemings and Mortons is just 10 minutes away. I like Flemings the most out of all three. The steak is so much better but avoid going on thursdays if you don't like crouds.
