We had dinner there after the Ulalena play. Ruth Chris has a consistent quality no matter wether you visit them in NY or Coral Gables. It really is first class dining.

My hubby has always wanted to eat at Ruth's Chris....so off we went (finally). The atmosphere was cozy and fun. The waiters were very attentive and helpful. The salads were great, hubby's steak and mushrooms were very good. He did the lobster add on...but the lobster was quite fishy...not sure why. I had the chicken....dry and well...just chicken. (But in... More

We found this place in maui when we were on our honeymoon. We were a little dubious going to a steak house as vegetarians but we had a delightful night. Lovely cosy atmosphere. The service was exceptional and they gave us complimentary champagne to celebrate our recent marriage. There were quite a few tasty vegetarian options for us. In particular... More

After eight days of seafood I needed beef! To my surprise they were out of porterhouse steaks so I went with the New York strip which was cooked to perfection. The side dishes were large enough to split with the wife. The service was excellent, very friendly and efficient. I tend to shy away from chain restaurants but if your... More

We went to Hawaii with our friends, and for my Birthday, they took us to celebrate at Ruth's Chris in Lahaina. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. They brought me orchids at the beginning of the dinner and dessert strawberries we could share at the end of the meal. We went in the evening on February 28th,... More

We went for my husbands 60 th birthday. Our wait or Nick was fantastic and made our special evening even more special. He brought us complimentary glasses of champagne and brought a flaming strawberry dessert at the end of our meal. My husband wanted a " good steak" and he was very satisfied.

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.
