    The food was outstanding but unfortunately the service wasn't. Had to ask for drink refills twice. I feel as if the waiter didn't pay attention to detail out alone checking on us to see that we were taken care of. Disappointed in the service especially for as pricey as the food was.

    My wife and I went for restaurant week as they have an unbelievable deal. The value for the food is exceptional considering how the kitchen nails it every time with a delicious steak. Service was on point even though at almost 9pm the main dining room was still packed. Kudos to Melissa for being attentive to us all night!!

    I have always liked Ruth's place... Everything is first class, service staff, menu selections, and a good wine list, that they don't rip you off on the prices they charge for bottles of wine.... Also they have a great bar menu, and the steak sandwich you cant find any better any where else.

    We went here during restaurant week. We've never eaten at Ruth's Chris before and thought we'd check it out during restaurant week since the price seemed to be right. We were in Rancho Mirage for a retreat and thought we'd celebrate out 22nd anniversary a few days early. Well this place did not disappoint. The service was great, friendly atmosphere and we were treated well. They acknowledged our anniversary at check in because I added a note to the reservation through Open Table. We would definitely go back again when in the neighborhood.

    To start, we showed up and they confirmed our reservation. Asked if we were celebrating any thing special. We were immediatel seated. Lori was our server, whom was very pleasant, excited for us to be there, made excellent suggestions. Overall her service was exceptional. My wife ordered the chicken, withe harvest salad appetizer. Which she said was great, along with the broccoli audio gratin, which we shared. I had the filet, with lobster bisque as an appetizer, with blue cheese and shrimp. Let me say that this filet was by far the best I have ever had. I had it med rare, it was juicy, flavorful and the toppings really were a great combination. Dessert was the molten hot centered chocolate delicious, unfortunately we couldn't finish.

    Being grandparents of a 15 year old boy can be challenging. This year we "bribed" our grandson with an invitation to Ruth's Chris - Palm Desert if he would visit us for a few days. It worked - he agreed to spend his Easter Vacation with us. Our server Jeanette, who is also a corporate trainer, and her support staff, especially Israel (Izzy) made our evening special. My wife and I are convinced that Ruth's Chris is the Number One Steakhouse in the United States. Wherever we travel we know that we will always have an outstanding meal at Ruth's. Our grandson agrees and never leaves hungry or unsatisfied when our meal at Ruth's is finished. If we could only convince him what 'MP' means, everything would be perfect.
