Steaks are the best! Very expensive, especially the sides. Spinach au gratin very ordinary creamed spinach with a slice of cheese melted on top. Very nice service.

If you want a great steak and sides, you know you will find this at Ruth's Chris in Palm Desert. Our wait staff person was extremely knowledgeable and helpful as we made our selections. We enjoyed a quiet dinner for two on a Friday evening.

If you want a really exceptional steak, albeit expensive, this is the place to go. Not only a fabulous steak but some of the best au gratin style potatoes I have ever had. Service is outstanding-friendly, efficient and very professional. We look forward to going back.

We stopped to celebrate a long time friends birthday and were treated royally. We made reservations through TripAdvisor and were welcomed and seated in a lovely booth. Advised of how the steaks were cooked (1000 degrees) and how to order side dishes we all ordered steaks. They were served sizzling and perfectly cooked. While they are expensive it was worth...

Ruth's Chris is a classic steak Restaurant.......It has mild to wild (huge cuts of prime meat)...and some very well aged petite cuts. as always the creamed spinach....awesome, and a ceasar salad very good....tried the preset menu deal (inclusive) and everything including the Rib eye was great.

Perhaps we hit them on a bad night. But the chef was 0-4 in cooking out steaks medium rare. The side dishes, salads, and dessert were top notch. But over cooking steaks at a steak house? The waiter was attentive and friendly in taking our orders, but disappeared thereafter. We left feeling the place is overrated, and overpriced. Do not... More

The favorite entree of mine at RC is the white meat of chicken stuffed with cheeses; served more than "piping" hot! Possibly it's a tiny bit salty as were the sides; mashed potatoes (also watery) and creamed spinach which felt like Stouffer's frozen spinach rather than a nice fresh spinach with a cream sauce...the sides definitely need an overhauling. Everything... More
