Haven't been in 20 years, it is good again

I haven't been in a Ruths Chris for a long time, who eats steaks like that anymore -- I had a hankering for a good piece of meat and am glad I picked this one. The service (Carol) was great. The food was superb -- the BLT Salad (though a laughable 2 pieces of lettuce) was tasty and the... read more

This restaurant is currently under moderate construction, unfortunately they did not indicate this to me when I made the reservation. What was supposed to be a relaxing intimate birthday celebration dinner for two, was more like going to a cheap steak house. I feel I cannot review this restaurant at this time in its current condition. It’s likely to be... More

The restaurant was undergoing a renovation and i though it was strange that they didn't mention that when we made the reservation. the ambiance was "construction" . the service was good and attentive but the waiter kept forgetting the drink order. I had... More

The steak was exceptional. I had the ribeye (with extra butter), very tender but a little fatty. I also had the lobster bisque which was out of this world! The price was upsetting however. The math here works like this. Soup + steak + tip = $91? Yikes

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.
