We were on our last day in Palm Desert before returning home and wanted a nice night out. Made reservations at Ruth's for an early meal. Both of us are not big eaters so we elected to split an entree` and a couple of sides with one drink and a beer. The location and restaurant was nice, and the service... More

Went for an impromptu dinner whilst in Palm Desert for a night. Place was very busy but we were seated quickly. Service was attentive and food superb. I had chicken as I'm not a huge red meat eater and was delicious. The rest of our party had steak which was top notch. The lobster mac and cheese was heavenly. Whilst... More

What can you say about Ruth's Chris... They always present quality food prepared right. The difference in the various RC's I've visited seems more geographic in nature. The couple dining with us commented more than once that the service was far different (read inferior) to the Nashville location they frequent. At one point, even our server was commenting on the...

Food was good. Wedge salad was great! My only thing is it's over priced. $40 Steak Comes with nothing, not even a garnish

Upscale place, especially when everything else is closed after 7-8 pm - even Starbucks??? - just practically absolutely no life around (maybe just Pizza and Albertson), weird .... but be prepare to pay, it is quite expensive ...

There is no mystery as to why this chain is my all time favorite restaurant. I have eaten at several of their locations in and outside of the U.S. and this location is my NO. 1!!! The entrees are flavorful and outstanding, served sizzling on that 500 degree plate. Side dishes are a la carte and filling in and of... More

We first discovered the Ruth's Chris restaurants in 2010 in Nashville, by accident really. But we haven't looked back since. Every time we visit the US we make an effort to get to one. The Palm Desert Ruth's Chris is one of my personal favourites, elegantly laid out, professional friendly staff and as always amazing food. There are Steaks and... More

I don't go to Ruth Chris much but when they have specials to drum up business, I might stop by. That was the case this time where they were offering a three course meal for $45.00. About $10.00 more for a better grade of steak of a lobster tail. August being the low season for Palm Desert, we were there... More

We had a wonderful dinner here last evening with friends. The ambiance is lovely inside, the server was friendly and professional. The food was really really tasty! Loved the Crab tower salad, Petit Filet, Brussel sprouts, Baked Potato, Lobster mac n cheese, and desserts were quite good too...great cheesecake!

Thank jamesnps
