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

This is the 3rd time we have visited this restaurant and while the steaks are fantastic, the service is horrible. This evening, we had to wait 10 minutes after being seated before the waiter came to greet us. After finishing our steaks, we had to wait another 15 minutes before he stopped at our table to inquire about dinner. Needless... More

Will preface this by stating it was a busy Saturday night with a special event taking place nearby. Made reservations for 28th anniversary. Valet parking $10 and a mess (more on that later). There on time but took them a while to seat us. Disappointed to be put in a small table in the middle of what should be an... More

We joined a group for a meal and shared various items. The family style vegetables were good, and the buttered steak was outstanding!

This place hits it out of the park every time. Mouthwatering filet served with brown butter that you can smell before it gets to the table. Sides are all extra but truly amazing especially the au gratin potatoes. Service is always great. Also, the bar is a wonderful atmosphere for a little less formal sitting.
