We attended a retirement seminar here and were pleasantly surprised at how excellent the food and service was. The room we were in was nice and quiet and the service was excellent. The calamari and shrimp appetizers were delectable... not greasy, beautifully seasoned and cooked. The filet was done to perfection and the side dishes were superb. Creamed spinach and... More

My husband took me to Ruth's Chris for my birthday - he had arranged with the staff to have his roses on the table and they outdid themselves. The food was fantastic - I had salmon and he had ribeye - can't beat Ruth's Chris for a great meal.

We visited this restaurant the night before Thanksgiving. We had a reservation and we were seated immediately. The food and service was very good. I believe that our server's name was Albert and he was knowledgeable and friendly. He knew the menu well and gave us some good recommendations. We will always visit when we are in Sacramento.

Prices went up recently, but the Happy Hour selections at Ruth Chris are still an excellent value. The house red, which is usually a cabernet is a very good selection for those who like dry, rich, bold flavors. And my favorite appetizers are the Ruth Chris steak sandwich is has thin slices of filet mignon with a generous portion of... More

My husband and I went there for our wedding anniversary. Because I had made reservation there (really recommended!!), we were greeted courteously and wished well for our anniversary occasion by at least 3 people, the hostess, server and helpers. Our table was decorated with rose petals upon arrival and had awesome service. The food was a work of art and... More

We had a private dinner in the event room with a fixed menu. Joe the server was fabulous, the food delicious and the wine list reasonably priced. It could not have been a better experience and the bill was less than $100 per head with drinks and wine.

Their steaks are good, but pricey of course. They do have a 3 course deal, which is a decent price, for those who like the options (which there are several good ones).
