“Cramped place with overcooked food”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

I am a loyal customer of Ruth's Chris in NJ and NY. I was ecstatic when I learned that there was a Ruth's Chris at the Intercontinental Hotel where I was staying at in PR. Unfortunately, the experience was below my expectations as the food, service and ambience was terrible.

We started with the seared ahi tuna, which was more "cooked" than "seared". Come on, how can you mess this up? Then, the disaster over the main course... I had ordered a medium the bone-in filet. Trust me, it was seriously overcooked as well. My family kept eating while I waited 30 minutes for my steak. Obviously I didn't eat it when it arrived since everyone had finished with their plates.

Finally, the manager came to offer free drinks which we accepted. Oh yeah, he did NOT apologize.

Veredict: I would NOT recommend this place. Food is not on par with the price I am spending on it and the place is very small. I felt like I could smell the butter sizzling in everyone's plates.

“As always excellent food”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We ate here and as always food was very good. And as always it's expensive but it is a great place for special occasions. Also, their happy hour includes appetizers and drinks, so if you get there in time for it, you can really save some money and still have great food.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

First of all DO NOT ORDER BOTTLED WATER unless you want to pay $8 and share with everyone at your table. The service was terrible... our waiter clearly did not like Caucasian Americans and was rude on multiple occasions. The food was just okay and way overpriced for the serving size.

“The best ever!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

I cannot say enough about Ruth's Chris steak house in San Juan. It is located in the hotel next to the El San Juan. I have been to others but this by far was the best I have ever had. The service was something out of a training manual for how to be a server in a 5 star restaurant. They were all amazing.
The food was superb.
I would recommend this for sure.
