I was one of five who visited on a day of celebration. My only complaint is that, what I was served was not a quality aged steak. The facilities were adequate, and service good, but the steak fell short of my expectations.

Always reliable and good quality but I can't escape the "chain" feeling. Food good but not as excellent as other steak houses.

We've been to Ruth's Chris, including this one in Irvine, CA, several times over the years. The food is consistently very good to excellent each time, and the service impeccable. We're at a point now, where we share dinners. It's just too much food for one person to eat. This time we shared a 16oz. ribeye steak, with baked potato... More

Dinner is always great. You have to have the filet mignon medium rate with a bake potato. The steak will just melt in your mouth. I have never had another steak taste like a steak from Ruth Chris. A little pricey, but well worth it!

We had dinner last week at the Ruth's Chris steak house in Irvine. We were well taken care of by Carter and Tom. Our food was delicious, cooked as we had asked. Like most steak houses it was a little loud but otherwise very comfortable. This one is located in a very busy shopping center, traffic in and out of... More

I had the dinner with the filet, which was very good but not fantastic. I started with their chopped salad which was only so-so, as was their bread. For dessert we ordered the bread pudding, it was good but not great. So, in sum, a good meal, nothing to complain about, but nothing to write home about either.
