“Great Anniversary Start , Bad Finish!”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

I planned a wonderful night for my wife for our Wedding Anniversary.The food started out really good my wife got the Ruth Classic. She started out with the salad I had tomato soup I had the Ribeye she had the Sirlon steak with finished with dessert. Three hours later, Lebron was driving to the basket and I heard foot steps upstairs and the wife was on the toilet . Yep diarrhea. Spent $165 Overpriced & have to make it up to her. Very disappointed, it was our first time there.

I have had as good as and quite a bit better food than I was served at this restaurant. They tried to sit us on a table next to both the kitchen and the waiters station. Service was slow and the extra charge for basic side (a potato!) is ridiculous. We certainly won't go back.

“Supposedly one of the best restaurants in West Palm Beach”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Birthday celebrations were very much anticipated at this restaurant which, unfortunately, left us wanting in the quality of the meals. While the atmosphere was nice, the over-priced meals reminded us of pub fare where you'd be paying a quarter or less of anything this menu offered. Also, as a dedicated "sweetie", the dessert menu lacked variety and the hot chocolate fudge cake was very dry and tasteless. The $250 we shelled out could have been better spent elsewhere.

“Very Hyped, Great in Cetain Aspects, BUT ...”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

This steak house tries to develop a reputation as a very high end place in West Palm Beach. They use a special technique for their steaks, roughly a combination of very high heat and some kind of butter infusion. The result is truly soft and tender steaks. But - steak is already on the greasier and more unhealthy end of the spectrum of foods you should consume, and their way of adding generous portions of butter to everything just makes things that much worse. So we couldn't particularly enjoy the result, neither in taste, nor in the healthiness aspects. It is very pricy and tries to be high-end, although there are several places with nicer ambiance in the immediate vicinity. And, in my opinion as somewhat of a gourmet - if it is is the steak flavor you crave, head over to Outback, it's as simple as that. If you crave really great-tasting traditional American steaks, head a mile or so west on Okeechobee Blvd to the Okeechobee Steak House. And Ruth's Chris, de-grease your steaks so that the enjoyment you produce in people's hearts is more than the damage you do to the arteries of these same hearts!

“memorable occasion”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We celebrated a family birthday at Ruth's Chris in West Palm Beach in April, 2013. When the restaurant called to confirm the reservation the hostess asked if a special occasion would be celebrated, I said yes, a birthday. I was very surprised when we arrived to find Happy Birthday confetti on the table, along with a birthday card. Our waitress Jen, was very professional and did an excellent job. The meal was good, we each had steak. To my surprise again, the Chef had prepared a special dessert to celebrate and wrote Happy Birthday on the plate. Jen, our waitress asked if she could take a photo for each of the guests to have. The extra thought and care that was taken made the evening memorable.
