There's a great and very popular Happy Hour here so you must arrive early, like five, for sure. For seniors the happy hour dishes are enough food for dinner whereas if you go in the regular restaurant, it's usually too much for seniors not to mention, expensive.

So Ruth Chris is a famous steak house and supposedly some of the best steaks around, but I found the steak to be drenched in butter and just too over powering and heavy. It was a good piece of meat, but is it really work $50? Service was excellent and everything else as expected but not really that exciting.

This is what I expect from a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse - a highly attentive and efficient staff, great prices, a good pour, and delicious bar menu food. The prime rib sandwich with Bernaise sauce is tender and juicy. The spicy shrimp is wonderful.

Great staff, a relaxed vibe, and all made-from-scratch food and sides. Good choices in the bar for happy hour, including seared ahi tuna, an out of this world crab BLT and slightly dusted fried shrimp. A good list of wines and martinis along with some house made chips on the house to start out. Bartender and servers (Allison is outstanding!)... More

Once again this particular Ruth’s Chris Steak house has left me a bit disillusioned, which is really rather a shame as I have been to many Ruth’s Chris without disappointment. The whole problem started about a year ago when I visited them only to find the restaurant was under construction (they never said anything when I was making reservations). A... More

We decided to go here to celebrate my birthday. I've never been here but my Fiance and his parents have so I trusted their decision. Called like 10 mins before showing up and we got a table instantly. It was amazing! Jodi, was our server. They even put happy birthday confetti on the table for when we arrived. We got... More

As you might expect, Ruth's Chris Steak House has a great reputation. This Palm Desert location certainly met those expectations. We visited during Restaurant Week, which was an extra bonus for us. We enjoyed a 3 course meal at a fixed price. Absolutely delicious! We dined in the lounge. Service was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was packed and... More

Okay, I admit it: I'm cheap! If I go out to eat I want to get "bang for my buck". I had dragged my feet about dining at Ruth's Chris because I wasn't in a big hurry to take out a second mortgage to do so. That all changed last week! A group of friends wanted to celebrate a birthday,... More

Our server Yasmin was absolutely outstanding, if you go to Ruth's Chris be sure and ask for her, so accommodating. Everything we ordered was superb. Ambiance is great. With all the steakhouses in the Desert, Ruth's Chris is still the best.
