I have dined at many Ruth Chris locations nationwide, but found the service and waitstaff at this particular restaurant especially good. It's not cheap, but worth every penny.

You couldn't pay me to go back to this "steak" house. Everything we ordered was inedible. The caprese salads arrived with hard, green tomatoes. No one ate them. Then there were the steaks. I ordered my strip steak medium rare plus. It came out medium well. I sent it back. That's always the kiss of death. You know they're going... More

We received an e-mail about fashion show lunch. Menu is limited and fashion show is free. Our waitress Lori made us feel like one of the family (and new friend). We both had the black and blue chopped salad with sirloin. Appealing presentation and ample portions. Be sure to get on their e-mail list to get information on their special... More

We met friends here, and enjoyed drinks and appetizers. My husband and I shared a salad wedge with blue cheese and bacon that was delicious. I ordered calamari and was pleased to find it was prepared well, with good flavor and nice texture. It really was enough to share, but I chose to eat most of it. My husband and... More

This is my second review for Ruth's in Palm Desert. We eat here several times a year and also go to Ruth's in different states when we travel. (Hawaii, Chicago, Atlanta, etc.) The steaks are the best and all the sides too. I just wanted to write and say it is great each time we go to the particular Palm... More

We went with friends to Ruth Chris in Indian Wells. Both couples had the special 3 course dinner menu and each couple split their dinners. There was plenty of food and my wife and I split a 16 oz. rib eye steak and had enough left over to take home. The atmosphere was pleasant and quiet. The steaks were cooked... More

I have come to expect New Years Eve and weekend to be an unpleasant occasion for dining out. The menu is usually abbreviated, the restaurant is overcrowded with diners packed in like sardines, the servers are mostly in a foul mood. Our dinner this year was the total opposite of my expectations. The dining room is large, warm and recently... More

The physical plant is stunning, the service is professional, the drinks big and the food is outstanding. This is the best and most consistent Ruth's Chris steak house I know.
