From start to finish, our visit was horrific. The waitress was cold and rude, judgmental from the get go. A blonde with a long pony tail, giving the impression she was annoyed to be there; we even caught her rolling her eyes a few times. We live in San Diego and love the Carmel Valley location. That said, we visit... More

Was in Palm Desert for a large convention last week. Our company made reservations on two evenings to entertain clients. Made reservations for 10. As things can happen at the last minute part of our party cancelled on us leaving a smaller party that actually showed up for dinner. Upon arriving with our clients, the sales manager approached the table... More

This was our first visit to Ruth's Chris. Right from arrival, we were treated with TLC and greeted warmly. Our Excellent server, Tyler, made sure we were aware of Ruth's Classics (we went Friday night) these dinners were at a somewhat reduced price & inclusive of salad or soup, main entrée, a side & dessert. Great value for us. We... More

You know that you'll always get a good meal at Ruth Chris and this one is no exception. The staff is a bit young yet still very polite. Our server always answered our questions about menu items with "It's my favorite" which left us wondering about her sincerity. She was very nice, attentive and the overall meal was wonderful

I had never been to Ruth Chris's before, though I have been to a Morton's restaurant. This is very similar in food quality and price.It is all a la carte, which also makes the bill go up quickly. We each had wine, salad, steak, and shared a vegetable side and dessert. The bill was $159. It is pricey but at... More

We made a reservation at 7:30pm, arrives slightly early at 7:10pm. The receptionist told us we have to wait till 7:30pm in order to sit us, even though the place was half empty. No big deal, we went for a drink at the bar. We sat till 7:50pm w/o being called, so I went out and asked. The response: "Oh".... More

Ruth's Chris is justifiably well known as a top quality steak restaurant, I have never been disappointed when I have eaten at their restaurants in several cities across the USA and certainly recommend them for a top class steak dinner. This review however is about the 'Happy Hour' experience we just had at their restaurant in Palm Desert, California. Ruth's... More

Décor and ambience attractive and service first class. These superlatives outclassed by quality of steak. Prices fairly high but you get value for money and there are other establishments more expensive.Good range of wines and the one we chose - the Lackey - very smooth and full of flavour at $60 a bottle . Visited others of brand in different... More

We had a wonderful dinner in a little alcove so we didn't notice noise. They have a special dinner that includes salad, main course and dessert, reasonably priced. My husband had the Sea Bass and I had Scallops and they were both delicious and perfect sized portions. Yes, they are really known for beef but the fish was excellent.

This is the second time we have dined at this Ruth Chris, the last time was over 15 years ago. When we went the first time it was a destination restaurant, it made you feel special to eat there. Everything from the service to the food was first class. Our current experience was a disappointment. The steak was really good... More
