NOW ANY TIME IS PRIME TIME

What pairs perfectly with Ruth’s world-famous USDA Prime steaks and bone-in cuts? A perfectly appointed place to enjoy them. That’s just what we’ve created with our extensively remodeled Carmel Valley steak house in Del Mar in north San Diego.

Birthdays to board meetings.
With beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean across SoCal’s Torrey Pines Natural Reserve, our updated interior with its crisp, modern look is the perfect place for special celebrations. 

Centrally located just north of downtown San Diego and south of Carlsbad, the fresh, contemporary interior is also perfectly suited for off-site meetings and corporate events. Being open for lunch only on Fridays also makes it an ideal venue for larger functions, where the entire restaurant can be reserved during the day. 

A cut above the rest. While we’re famous for our sizzling steaks, you’ll also find fresh seafood, our chef’s innovative 3-course seasonal menu, an award-winning wine list, hand-crafted cocktails and San Diego’s best happy hour in our elegant bar.
