Absolutely the perfect experience! My wife and I went to Ruth's Chris for a long overdue date night as well as a late birthday dinner. Even though it had already been a month past they treated everything as if it was her birthday that night. It was perfect! The food was cooked exactly like we asked, the service was perfectly...

We visit the establishment in Edmonton a couple times a year, such a quiet surrounding great food and service. The food was good and service was above average. But when you walk in the main doors, the smell from the washrooms is unappealing, then you have to walk up a set of stairs and its a big wide open area,... More

This place is in a beautiful location and I was dying to check it out when I visited SD. However, service was lacking, Hostess was snooty and my darn chicken was over cooked twice! It was overcooked, I think, because I asked for them to just cook the chicken and not stuff it. I have had so many problems with... More

First, had to wait several minutes for the manager to get back to the reception desk and decide which table to take me to. Then I get a trainee. Robert was nice but clumsy and uneasy talking to customers. Didn't seem to know the menu. Used his bare hands to split open my baked potato and then put half of... More

I've been to this restaurant in Del Mar several times and the food and service was worth the money. This past time the service was horrible. The waiter forgot the drinks we ordered, the steak I ordered was cooked wrong so I had to wait for them to cook me another one, the waiter would take off and we wouldn't... More

The proximity to our hotel and a desire to eat a juicy, tender steak attracted us to this eatery. Although it wasn't crowded, just a few groups of guests talking and giggling, it was noisy. We ordered a 12oz Rib-Eye steak ($49) and a Blue Crab Cake dish ($34) and chose French Fries. I told the waiter we like our... More

The waitstaff are professional and very kind. The bread, salad and lobster mac and cheese were delicious. We should have just stuck with that. We are cattle ranchers and have been on meat judging team, so when you order a ribeye and are served a sirloin, we can tell the difference. Not the waiters fault. If you go, order the... More

I was a bit worried about being taken to a classic American steakhouse but it turned out to be fantastic. All the staff were really good and service was top notch. Decor was a classy muted classic theme with minimal lighting. We had drinks at the bar and then went to our table. Everything was faultless and the waiter knew... More

We arrived at 7 pm on a Monday night, and requested a table by the window overlooking the water (there were quite a few available) but were told that they were all reserved. Instead they placed the two of us at a table for four immediately adjacent to the kitchen entrance. The menu selections were very overpriced for everything from... More
