If you are taking clients out for lunch - this restaurant only takes reservations for lunch on Fridays. They are only open one day a week for lunch, and it’s well worth it! The pricing is on par with competitors that offer Lester service and quality. Lunch for two is under $60. I recommend the steak sandwich with their amazing garlic fries. My other recommendation is the lobster bisque. It is the best lobster bisque-not to Rich, just the right amount of seafood! Crème brûlée for dessert is exceptional! They also have a delicious burger that is such high-quality-it is the best burger in town! The service is impeccable, and the staff is professional and kind. You can speed things up if you wish, and keep lunch to one hour. You can make reservations for Friday lunches on OpenTable, or if you call they are very accommodating. They have redecorated the dining room so it’s more contemporary or not so dark. If you have a client to impress or special occasion such as a birthday to celebrate, this is the place to do it!

We did a night out without the kids and headed to our local RC's in Marina Del Rey. We decided to try their Pre-Fixe rather than a la carte. For Appetizer: Wife - Roasted Red Apple & Butternut Squash, Me - Steak House Salad; Entrées: Wife - Filet with Sautéed Broccolini with garlic, Me - Ribeye 12 ounce with Creamed Spinach; Dessert: Wife - Apple Crumb, Me - Cheesecake. This was about $55/person. Everything was delicious, but RC's steaks never disappoint and was prepared to our liking, I like it medium-rare and it was spot on; and the aged steak was flavorful and tender.
If you haven't tried their pre-fixe, I highly recommend.

We love Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, but not the one in Irvine. We have been to others but the one in Irvine does not live up to the standard. It could be that it was Christmas Eve. but when you are spending this kind of money for dinner, they need to make sure their staff is up to the challenge. They did not appear to be. Our meal was wonderful, my martini was amazing, dessert (supposedly Haagen-Dasz ice cream) was just mediocre.

We went for a VERY early New Year’s Eve dinner. Pleasantly surprised that we were not rushed AT ALL! We had exceptional service from start to finish! They had a very well thought out “special” 3 course meal along with the regular menu. The special also had choices within - making it a total hit!!! The surf and turf was spectacular- presentation and quality. Enjoyable atmosphere, music was the perfect style and volume, service excellent!
This will be our new holiday place when in town!!
