Sizzling Steak at a Price

Ruth's Chris in Fresno was my first experience with such a high-end restaurant. The entire experience was certainly special and the price was equally special. I tried their filet and it was tender and so very tasty! Be ready to pick and pay for your side dishes - everything is a la-cart.

Food is actually really good but not worth the wait. Great atmosphere, First visit was when they first opend up, Fantastic! food was great somewhat over crowded though. 2nd visit was a long 45 to 60 min. wait in the lounge area. Food took longer to arrive and half the order was wrong. 3rd time was the charm. Someone said... More

I only visit this restaurant when it is a special occasion and someone else is footing the bill, because the food is just so-so and the prices are ridiculous. My husband and I ordered two petit filets ($42 each). They were ordered medium rare and medium and came to us rare and medium rare instead. The price includes nothing but... More

Service was so slow, food is over priced, I'll never go back. I cant believe they can stay in business. What a joke. We got there at 7 we didn't get out till 10:15.

My last visit was with a large group (35) and we got excellent service and there is no way to describe the steaks except fantastic. A perfect place for a special occasion or a important business meeting. Also, the sides and wine list were excellent.

Great place for a good steak and to hold a business meeting. Staff was ultra friendly & seemed to show up when needed. I highly recommend this particular Ruth's Chris to the busy business traveler.

Great atmosphere, great service, great food although I was not as impressed with the steak as I hoped. (And it is a steak house) The side items are excellent and maybe it was just my steak as I have only tried it once so far. Lobster Mac and Cheese is ridiculous!

I love this mom pop steak house, I had the prime rib. It was so tender just melted in my mouth. The service was great too, honestly friendly and professional. Our wait or Mark was hilarious and made us all laugh along with bringing great service. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their food as well. We will be back!

If the food had not tasted so good, I would have given a poor rating for the wait time and service. This is based on 2 dinner meetings in September and October, and each with between 15 and 24 people in attendance and 8 - 10 wait staff in one of the private rooms. When you go to dinner at... More

I have never been disappointed at this restaurant. Not inexpensive, but food quality is always top notch, and service exceptional.
