It's understood by most that Ruth Chris is the best. I can truly say that this year at this Irvine Ruth Chris it certainly was just that. It was a very personal birthday experience from the moment I arrived to celebrate my Birthday and a friends. She had rib steak and lobster and I had the bone in filet as... More

Great food and service but they recently installed new LED lighting and it's really really bright.... Ruined the ambiance. It was also extremely cold and the music was so quiet you could barely hear it.

We have never had a bad meal at Ruth's Chris. The quality and way the steaks are prepared have no equals. The service is equally impressive. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Pros: Great service, pleasant atmosphere, quiet enough that one could hear others at the table without shouting, which itslef is a unique experience in this town, enormous wine list. Cons: Pass on the creamed spinach, it's terrible, they should relearn the recipe from any Lawry's restaurant, a little too dark, couldn't see my steak to cut it.

Came here for our anniversary dinner and had the best time! Arrived early enough to enjoy the great happy hour deals in the bar and then moved to the main room for dinner. $9 drinks and $9 appetizers that could have been a meal all on its own. When we mentioned to the busser it was our anniversary he notified... More

This is not your typical 'man' steak house. The decor is light and bright with white table clothes but it can be a romantic place or a family night as well. They were happy to accommodate some food restrictions.

This is one of my favorite places to celebrate anything. It's pricey but it's totally worth it. Everything is a la carte but the sides are large enough to share between at least 4 people. The steaks are prime and cooked to perfection. The location is easy to access and parking is generous. Go.....enjoy! You won't be sorry.
