This is a lovely restaurant to enjoy fine dining and good company. The décor is pleasant even if it maybe a little dated. On arrival, you are welcomed by the hostess then shown to a beautifully presented table, then the wait staff explain the specials of the day and leave you to ponder over the menu. Nothing is rushed and... More

We were staying at the Wyndham next to the steak house and decided it was time to give it a visit. We both had NY strip steaks and added our sides and each had 1 glass of wine. An excellent meal for sure which came at a price of $200. Service was good and we got seats looking out at... More

We have come here multiple times in the past and have had great experiences every time, this time wasn't the case. We came for an early new years dinner as a party of 8 and we're horribly disappointed. Two orders of mashed potatoes came out cold and had to be sent back. One person in our party didn't get her...

VERY pricey is putting it mildly. The steak and bread were EXCEPTIONAL! The sides and salad were definitely lacking. It's worth doing once.

This place is perfect in every way. Food was hot and delicious! The staff was friendly and helpful! My daughter and I enjoyed watching all the celebrations going on around us. The view was amazing. Don't change a thing!

My friends and I had dinner at Ruth Chris' to celebrate a birthday. It was pretty crowded in there for a Wednesday which means the food is good, right? The tables are "cozy" and it's pretty dark in there which sets the tone. We were happy to see some great specials which included a steak with 2 lobster tails. They... More

Our entry was a steakhouse salad with balsamic vinaigrette. The vinaigrette was the thickest I've ever seen. It tasted ok, but not very appealing. The main dish was a 6 oz. petit filet with shrimp. The steak came in a butter sizzling dish with mash potatoes and spinach as garnish. This dish was very good. As the dessert came we... More

I recently took a trip to San Diego with my husband and best friend for my birthday and also to visit family. I have been to many Ruth Chris locations in the country as this is my favorite steakhouse! I was quite disappointed in this location as I made birthday reservations far in advance and when I got there for... More

Typical Ruth's fare with a great view, can be crowded but they are very accommodating. Steaks are great as well as other dishes.

We are big fans of Ruth Chris and have eaten at over a dozen of them. We've been here 5 or 6 times, try to visit whenever we are in San Diego for a stay. We ate here most recently early on a Sunday evening in late October 2016. This time we both ordered off the Ruth Classic menu. I... More
