“Wonderful atmosphere, Great RibEye”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

The ambience of the restaurant is very classy and the views of downtown Walnut Creek are wonderful. Service is quick and polite. RuthChris is known to have the best rib eye steaks anywhere and that is the same for the Walnut Creek restaurant. The steaks are cooked perfectly to custom specifications and delivered piping hot so be careful. You can choose a lobster to be served, hand picked. The Creamed Spinach is wonderful as is the Sweet Potato pie. For desserts, my favorite,is the Chocolate Explosion Cake, while my wife prefers the Creme Burle. Restaurant can be pricey but good things do cost more and RuthChris definitely one if not the Best in Walnut Creek.

“Love the ambient lighting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

I've eaten here a couple of times.

I love love love their steaks. Especially the filet mignon. Yummy.
The food here has not dispappointed me yet! It always seems to have the right kind of seasoning for my taste.
The staff is always knowledgeable and very courteous to us. It doesn't matter if it's just two of us or if its our entire staff. The consistently of customer service here remains the same.

Thank you Ruth Chris. We will continue to come to your restaurant.

“Just like home and better”

My family and I usually are seated in the bar area with a tablecloth. The people entertainment add to the atmosphere. Pleasant conversation, friendly service, and excellent food make for a memorable experience.

“Pricey but very good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Very good food with good bar area!

Very great quality for the price!

That is the best steak house that I have been combining the food quality and price.

For the food quality the price is very fair!

Definitely coming back!

“Worst Ruth's Chris I have visited.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

This location of Ruth's Chris is terrible. The service was terrible, the food was not great. The steak was tough and not even close to the quality I have received at other Ruth's Chris locations. The bathrooms were disgusting. The entrance to the restaurant looks like a fast food joint. Don't waste your time or money.
