  • "Ruth's Cris is our favorite special occasion dining destination. The food is always superb and the service is second to none. We were fortunate to again have Steve and Avery as our server team. This dynamic duo provided seamless, personable and extraordinary service. We always thoroughly enjoy our dining experience and eagerly anticipate our next visit."

  • "While traveling through the Southeast and trying all the different delicious southern dishes we got to a point where we were in need of a good old fashioned steakhouse. We discovered that we were staying right across the street from this Ruth's Chris while in Asheville. This restaurant was exactly what we were looking for. An excellent ribeye steak, salad, and baked potato. The portions are generous so we split everything and went away very satisfied. The service was top notch as well."

  • "Ruth's Chris in Asheville is a wonderful spot for an outstanding dinner. The steaks are served hot and sizzling in butter by an incredible and attentive staff. Sit at the bar before dinner and enjoy the company of the ladies pouring drinks. They are fun and deliver true southern hospitality."

  • "It's hard to give Ruth's Chris an excellent for its dinner because it's so expensive. So it needs to be perfect. I thought everything was good, it just didn't blow my mind. Our server who went to App St. was excellent and made the evening wonderful. We were seated in the cellar room and it was quiet. You felt like you had to be really quiet. I like a little more upbeat feel."

  • "Usually a great restaurant but this meal missed the mark. The filet was overcooked, returned and the replacement was undercooked. The rib eye was undercooked. In Ruth's Grill the chicken is not as good as I anticipated, the crab cake was not nearly as good as the many ones you can find around Asheville, and the filet's taste was not as I have had previously in this restaurant for some reason. In addition we were seated next to a large private room and the doors to this room must have opened 50 times during our meal, a very annoying distraction. But the staff here is very attentive, kind and professional and tried to make up for our problem with my filet, which was very nice of them."

  • "Overall a great dinning experience. Great food, great atmosphere, super service. The only negative was upon arrival at our reservation time we were given a seat in the wine storage area, which in Ashville N.C is a very small room in a secluded corner of the restaurant by the front door. This seating effectively takes the ambience out of the dinning experience. Plenty of alternate seating was available and we were moved upon request with no issues. Us being new this particular restaurant we wanted to enjoy the whole establishment."

  • "We've been to other Ruth's Chris restaurants, but this was our first time to the Asheville location. The food was what you'd expect from a Ruth's Chris, never a disappointment here. But this is one of the nicest we've been to. Perhaps because it is only 2 years old, but the layout was lovely. The bar area is large and lovely. The booths are tucked away from the main room, there was one other booth near us, and afford a quieter dining experience and a bit more privacy. The staff were inconspicuously there when needed and we were never neglected."

  • "We enjoyed our meal at Ruth's Chris last weekend. Service was good and food better than the other Ruth's Chris' I have been to (7). Salads, side and steak very tasty. Special drink excellent! Liked the atmosphere, cosy. Our table was close to the kitchen and would request a better one when we return."

We were seated in a booth which was very quiet and intimate which we really appreciated. Jessica was our server and she was outstanding! She picked out the perfect wine to compliment each course we had. Thank you for the wonderful experience!!"

  • "We received a gift certificate and saved it for our trip to Asheville which made the event even more special combined with Valentine's Day (almost). Our meal of petit filet steaks, sweet potatoes and mushrooms was perfection and the service attentive without hovering. The suggested wine was a bit pricey for the quality but, overall a wonderful meal. Parking is difficult and valet is recommended."

  • "We stopped after a long drive. Experience was well worth the wait. We arrived on time and taken promptly to our table. The staff was well trained, food was prepared perfectly, and Ruth's Chris will be on our list for a future visit."

  • "Took the wife to Ruth's Chris in Asheville, NC for a belated Valentine's Day dinner. The Ribeye and Petite Filet were done to perfection. The wine selection is superb and our waiter Steve was knowledgeable and friendly. Steve had been our waiter the last time we had been at the restaurant and we requested him this time. After complimenting him on the decaf coffee, he brought us a small sample of the ground coffee to take with us. Little extras like that make the dining experience that much more enjoyable. While the dinner was fantastic, be prepared to spend some money."

  • "This was a special occasion. We were seated in a small room off of entryway and it was quiet, beautiful music playing, and lighting very romantic. Waiters were very attentive, food was perfect and overall it was exactly what you would want a special occasion dinner to be."

  • "We have dined at a number of Ruth's Chris establishments around the world, this was a repeat visit to their Asheville location. A number of people dismiss Ruth's Chris as "just a chain" ... we disagree. Certainly there is a consistency in their great style and presentation, but their size ensures they have the best quality food. The staff address you by name - a nice touch. Our food was outstanding, we had their ribeye and filet, great pieces of steak that were perfectly prepared. Their wine list is extensive, but also has a large mark-up over retail, so even a reasonable bottle is expensive. Not very busy, but that also meant we didn't feel rushed ... and could take our time to enjoy a great meal."

  • "My wife and I dined in celebration for a belated Valentine's day. We have been at Ruth Chris several times and every time it has always been a fantastic experience. I ordered a New York strip steak medium and it came out medium well with no hint of pink. However, I did not let the server know (only my wife) because it would be a waste of good meat if it was returned. Overall, our dinner date with my wife at Ruth Chris was fantastic."

  • "We went for their Valentines Weekend promo to celebrate Valentines Day and my sons 19th birthday and was not disappointed. We had James as our server again and he was great. We got one of our favorite seats in front of the fireplace and the night was awesome. We were there a bit early (5p) and it was nice a quiet."

  • "We went a second time during Asheville Restaurant Week and unfortunately this time didn't live up to the high standards that Ruth's Chris had set during our previous visits. Our servers name was Michael and quite frankly he was terrible. He didn't check on us regularly and would disappear for long durations of time. At one point I had to ask his assistant to send him over because we wanted to add to our dessert request because we hadn't seen him in so long. Now in all fairness to Michael it was the last night of the Asheville Restaurant Week promo menu and they were unusually busy with several large tables in his area but it's really no excuse. Without the help of his assistant the service would have been a complete disaster."

  • "Of all the Ruth's Chris we have visited this one is by far the best. Gabe, Steve and all the management staff are excellent and you truly feel they sincerely care that your experience is a great one. Adam is an amazing waiter and knows the menu inside and out. The only disappointment was that for the first time we ordered off the special menu that offered a 3 course meal at a lower price. I had the petite filet and it was amazing as always but my wife had the ribeye that was a smaller version of the ribeye they typically serve. Not sure why but the smaller version seemed to lack the amazing flavor that the larger ribeye offers. It was overall an amazing visit and the smoked scallops that accompanied my filet were off the chart!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "What an amazing experience! Everything was perfect from the the valet opening the doors to getting sat at the perfect fire side table. The service was second to non and the steaks were better than we had ever had in Asheville before. The wine list came in a beautiful leather bound book and really complimented the wonderful food menu that was offered. We were very happy we gave this place a try and will definitely be back!!"
