Salads, filets, desserts and wine. All great, cooked to order (did not have to return steaks because not cooked right). Good service although server wasn't very friendly (smile..not going brok yo face)

This is our all-time favourite happy hour in Waikiki. We highly recommend the escargot, ravioli and the ahi tuna. The lychee martini (featured martini) and the Mai Tai (featured cocktail) were also very tasty. The service is excellent every single time, especially Kevin and Mitch...More

Service is excellent but food quality all processed GMO fed cattle. In Hawaii people come to see the beautiful views but Ruth's looks out to a busy Nimitz highway. No thanks never again will our family go to this restaurant.More

Steaks were cooked perfectly and seasoned deliciously. Wait staff was kind and genuine (couldn't tell they were faking if they were). A little loud because of a party next to us. Absolutely recommend this place.

It was my wife’s birthday, so we visited Ruth’s. We are vegan now, so not the best place to eat. 100 bucks for a beer and some veggies but hey it’s Ruth’s. Great service, manager and local. Highly recommend to the carnivores; vegans slim pickings.

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.
