Palm Desert Ruth Chris still a favorite.....

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... read more

Food was good, service was great! I was traveling for work alone so I opted to eat in the bar. The servers were attentive without hovering and even had the valet get me a taxi when I was ready to leave. My only disappointment was the my mediumsteak was very clearly well done. By the time I received my food,... More

I've always been a fan of Ruth's Chris, but tonight I was introduced to the great value of their Happy Hour. The limited menu doesn't skimp on quantity or quality. My DW chose the burger with Blue Cheese. I opted for the steak sandwich. Both were outstanding, and priced at $10 and $12, they filled us as much as if... More

Great service. Food/Drink over-priced. Steaks and sides were under-cooked. Better food and lower prices elsewhere.

We have been to Ruth's Chris happy hour many times, but this was our first dinner in the dining room. We had a reservation for seven at table #91 (romantic corner banquet). The table wasn't ready when we arrived, but they were able to seat us in another lovely romantic banquet (#75). Turned out better since we had Carol as... More

I'm not going to say it's the best i have ever had, however it was close. We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. Service was great. Every staff member stopped to wish a happy birthday. Each member of our group really enjoyed their dinner. I will be back again for sure

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.
