    The service we received was excellent! As it was our anniversary, they had the table sprinkled with rose petals and gave us a champagne toast. However, the food was just okay compared to other Ruth's Chris. My lobster tail was tough and chewy. My husband's steak was good but not great. We have had better food other times when we dined at Ruth's Chris in Charlotte and Wilmington. We felt the price was too high for the quality of the food and drinks.

    The steaks were great cooked perfect. The asparagus was cold and stringy. The noise level was high lady at the piano made it hard to have a good conversation and took away from the ambiance if it was toned down to a dinner level would have been a nice addition.

  • Big Disappointment Over Priced Meal
    DavidVIP
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    To say big disappointment would be an understatement. I could have grilled my own steak and baked potato and had freinds over and fed them also for what I paid to eat here. The steak was plain nothing special. When paying $45 dollars for a steak I better be singing by the time I finish. Not so here. When the waitress told me it was A la Carte I thought I was at the J-S Cafeteria having a meal. I would not recommend this place to anyone friend or family nor to any of my guests that stay at my hotel. I can see paying $70 for a meal if it is worth it. But the food nor the service were worth $70.

    My wife and I don't go that often, but when we get a yen for lamb chops, this is our destination. Actually, since we split the 3 chops and a vegetable plate and salad, it's not all that expensive either. (Not counting booze.)

    We have been to Ruth's Chris several times since they opened in Asheville NC, and we consider it to be pretty much the best restaurant in Asheville. The food is consistently cooked to perfection,properly seasoned and served piping hot. They have an excellent wine list and the desserts are outstanding. So treat yourself to the best steak dinner you can get anywhere around these parts, and you will be happy you did.

    Ruth Chris is unique in each of its locations as we have experienced a number of locations such as Orlando, Washington DC, and others. We actually opened the Longwood/Heathrow Florida location which was New Orleans based and in honor of Ruth. The food is always, without exception, fabulous and we look forward to our visits. If you have not experienced Ruth Chris, please do so, you will fall in love!

    Four of us had a reunion dinner at Ruth's Chris, and I think this was the best experience I've had at a Ruth's Chris recently. We were treated very well from start to finish, from the valet who took good care of my vintage Silver Spur to getting the exact table we had requested to the pace of the service to, of course, those wonderful sizzling U.S. Prime steaks. Dinner for four with ample drinks, wine and more than enough to eat came to around $400 before tip -- not something we can do every week, but it was a great special occasion meal at my favorite steak house.

    When RCSH called to confirm our reservation, the hostess inquired if we had guests or were celebrating something special. I mentioned an out-of-town guest was visiting to help celebrate my Mother's 89th birthday. When we arrived, my Mother was surprised to find a birthday card, signed by the RCSH staff at her place. Later, our server brought glasses of champagne for all of us and a dessert for Mom. The staff went out of their way throughout the evening to stop and congratulate her and make her feel very special. None of this was necessary, but I have come to expect RCSH to extend the little extras that turn an ordinary evening out into a dining experience.
