Location not as favorable given El Paseo nearby, but still a solid choice

One great positive- a $15 corkage fee- very reasonable, versus others nearby. Sullivan's is $25, Mastro's is $35- way too high for me to accept mentally. Ruth's Chris was good- but I thought it might be a shade less than other Ruth Chris' I have been to in recent years.

Took my wife here for her 56th birthday. Our waiter was Gabe and the assistant was Chad. Both excellent and made our evening great. I didn't get the server's name , but he was also excellent as he brought our orders from the kitchen and actually served our meal instead of just putting it on the table. We ordered a... More

We had mixed feelings about this restaurant. It was very crowded and quite noisy and the menu almost impossible to read. The waitress loaned us her flashlight and it was still difficult. By far the best route is to go the a la carte as this makes the meal reasonable in price. The service was top notch, and the steaks... More

Consistently excellent food and service. The a la carte prices of food make it an expensive dinner, but the Prix Fixe menu is a better choice that offers an entrée, 2 sides, and dessert. The steak (any cut) is always perfectly cooked to order and tender. Service is outstanding and friendly. A good place for a special event.

This desert valley area is a mecca for Happy Hours. Every restaurant has them, mostly in the bar area. And they are set up for that. Very limited small plate menus. The bar was very welcoming and comfortable, very nice bar and tall table setting. Service was atrocious. Only two wait staff in the entire room and they were very... More

Got to restaurant a little after 4 pm for happy hour and it was packed. They did accommodate us a table not in the bar and by the door. Server named Carol stopped by quickly and said she would be a while getting to us but got our drink order a few moments later. She was really hustling and just... More

This is a steakhouse chain that started in New Orleans and still maintains the highest level of service and awesome dishes. Fix prix dinners know as Chris house specials cover a large selection for the indecisive dinner. Steaks are the specialty and can't be beat.

We visited on the 10 th Jan. 2015 with another couple. The prices were so expensive that my husband and I shared a meal. The fillet mignon steak was about US$40, they said they could butterfly it to cook well done for me. We did not think, and neither did they, that because it was butterflied they could have cooked...

This place on a Weds night at 7 pm was packed and somewhat loud. But with the reputation it had we figured we would give it a try. Waitress Carol was awesome - friendly warm and welcoming. We would come again to see her.... Not the good though. I eat at Applebee's a lot and I must say the steaks... More

We have been to several Ruth's Chris restaurants and loved the decor of this one! It was packed on Sunday night - looks like they have an amazing Happy Hour. We came for our "usual" - Cowboy Ribeye (bone in). Our meal was great though service was slow (they had a big banquet apparently). My husband thought his steak was... More
