Last month, 6 of us went to Ruth's Chris for a Raymond wine dinner. Talk about getting a "great bang for your buck". The wine was paired beautifully with a dinner of salad, ahi tuna, stuffed chicken with the fantastic sweet potato casserole, and Filet with potatoes. The service and staff were incredible and each plate was served sizzling hot... More

While I can give this a good review, I wouldn't say it was one of the best meals we ever had at a restaurant. I gave it 5 rating, because our grandaughters love steak and their children's menu has a quality steak with a side dish, a beverage, & dessert for a valued price. Our meals were on the expensive...

This was our first time at Ruth but have been to other steak houses. While some may love the huge amounts of butter that are put on the plate and over the steak, for us it was too rich. We think they should tell people before they order that that is how they serve so they would know (as our... More

Once again, we are in Indian Wells for a conference. Last year, my daughter and I had the pleasure of eating at Ruth Chris. Tonight, my husband and son were able to also be there. We had reservations at 6, but my husband was running late due to work and traffic. We called and no worries, they were fine with... More

We went here with our son because a) we wanted a superb steak in a fine dining environment and b) there had to be a kids menu available. The kids menu was superb with great choices. Not your usual junk food kids menu. Salmon, steak etc etc. The steaks were obviously beautifully prepared and the wine list matched. On the... More

Service was very slow and we had a large party of 11 - took us 3 hours from start to finish. They warned us that the steaks would be served sizzling hot on 500 degree plates and, at least for my husband and me, that was not the case. Due to that, our steaks were underdone - had to send... More

Ruth's Chris has an amazing happy hour. You get to enjoy their perfectly prepared food, for a fraction of the cost. The staff members at the bar are always friendly and you get to watch sports and visit with other locals. Don't miss this gem within a gem!

Went for our anniversary and was not disappointed. It was Restaurant week so we were able to partake of the special 3 course menu for $38. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was impeccable and the place was very nice. We started with ahi tuna followed by New York Strip for my husband and Filet Mignon for myself all... More

We recently went with a group of friends and ate at the bar. The hamburgers are to die for, perfect medium rare! My husband and I shared the burger and chop salad, which was also delicious. It made a perfect meal. Large selection of wine choices by the glass, which caps off a great meal.
