We've eaten here every year for approximately 5-6 years. The food has gone downhill. The bread is not as nice, use to be oven warm sourdough and is now pre- bought French loaf. They've discontinued the Maui onion/tomato salad and substituted a tomato mozzarella that was drenched in balsamic vinegar. My husband is Italian and he had trouble eating it.... More

We had a lovely impromptu dinner here when rain spoiled our plans to barbecue at our condo. The menu will be familiar to fans of the chain, but I was blown away by he effort the staff put into making sure we had a great experience. My wife drinks light beer and had found it very hard to find anything... More

Same wonderful food as always, with the expected Maui markup. Good service, a bit slower than we would have liked, but still ok.

The restaurant had a very cozy feeling and the service deserves 5 stars. My husband has the Cowboy Bone- In Ribeye and I had the petite Filet with grilled Brussel sprouts . Everything was prepared to perfection.

I used to really love Ruth's Chris - it has always been expensive, but the quality was always there and I used to feel that it was a good value. I don't find that to be true anymore. The side dishes seem to be treated with little respect and I can make better at home. The steaks were of good... More

There were 4 adults and 2 children in our party. We had booked well in advance and anticipated an exceptional dining experience. As it turned out, the steaks were ok, but not great. 3 of the 4 steaks for the adults were over cooked. However, the lobster that my wife and daughter had was very good. 4 adult dinners, 2... More

My husband and I took our daughter and son-in-law here Friday night after their sunset beach wedding. They received a complimentary champagne toast and a surprise Strawberry Flambé desert too. As always, the food was delicious and most tender meat you can find. Our server (and helpers) kep everything smooth the entire dinner. Can't say enough good things about this... More

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.
