Ruth's Chris has just opened in Pasadena, and it is taking the city by storm. It's a great special occasion restaurant. It's pricey, but the quality is superb. The bar is fabulous, and its prices are not outrageous. The service was great, and the steaks are just unbelievable. My filet was so delicious, I could have cried! It just melted in my mouth, and the butter drizzled over the steaks is fabulous. Sharing the side items is a great idea. Our table of 5 ordered 4 sides and split them, and it was perfect. The bread pudding we had for dessert was great too. You definitely want to make reservations, especially since it's the new place in Pasadena, and take advantage of the valet parking too.
