First time at Ruth's Chris... my impressions are listed below: First let me say that if I spend +$250 for dinner for two (2 dinners, 2 side dishes, glass of wine, 2 desserts, glass of sherry with dessert), I expect the food and service to be superb. Out of 10 I would maybe give the food a 8.5 and also... More

We were lucky to bag a seating on Labor Day evening without a reservation. My wife and I had never tried a Ruth's, but had a hankering for a good steak after a few weeks of dieting, and we were rewarded with outstanding and friendly service. Although the dining room was full of holiday diners, our server Melanie Christmas was... More

I agree with some of the other reviews, much to my chagrin. While the food and service are both very good (as expected), this one does not measure up to other RC's in places like Newport Beach and Maui. Not to say that it was bad - it certainly was not - but it just was not as good. The... More

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
