Having just had steak over the weekend at The Grill I was not ready to do it again so soon but... we had a winemaker dinner booked for Daou Vineyards, Paso Robles so here we were driving out to Pasadena on a Monday night to Ruth Chris. We knew the wines would be excellent as Daou Vineyards is extraordinary and makes incredible wines but I am not usually a fan of Ruth Chris. First I must give a big shout out to our server Karla as the service was a TEN! From the perfect martini, the endive salad with cherries and crispy pancetta, the crab cake which arrived sizzling and then the blue cheese crusted filet, I had to undo my pants button to give me extra breathing room. The steak was cooked a perfect medium rare and so tender you really did not need a knife. This was one of those evenings when food, ambiance and service all came together perfectly for the ultimate dining experience. We can't wait to go back.

This facility is operated by the corporate headquarters, and is not a franchise operation as is the case where we normally dine at home. The difference is similar to the difference between an original of a painting and a copy -- the original is much to be preferred. Not only are there new items on the menu from time to time, including a delicious spicy lobster starter and a new Greek salad, but the wine list is extensive and varied and considerably less expensive than the prices to which we are normally subject.

There is no denying that their food is absolutely delicious...period! In September of this year, we took our son for his 21st birthday. We have dined at other Ruth's Chris Steakhouse while on vacation in Maui and Mexico, and here locally in So Cal. I will say we all missed that "vacation" kick back attitude we usually have while enjoying a fantastic meal. Just made me want to start planning this summer's vacation!!

We all chosedifferent cuts of beef, and side salad. My husband and I also shared a sweet potato side dish...wow...it was incredible moist and could have been our dessert. We were stuffed! Yes, it's very pricey...that's why it's usually reserved for vacations or very special occassions. We also love to go to another 'tourist' spot...Disneyland...again a costly trip..but well worth it! It's fun to play tourist in your own backyard sometimes people :-D

Quiet and pleasant restaurant which served a very acceptable steak. The bill, however, was hard to swallow.
