    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.

    I did not enjoy the food in general. The soup (corn and leek) tasted like cream with a lumpy consistency that someone whispered 'corn' over. I sent it back. The meat came out absolutely cold - had to be returned to be heated, and then it was fine, but not worth the price. The crab cake was inedible - greasy, small, ugly, and tasteless. The desserts were good. The server was smug and obviously disappointed that we weren't getting anything more expensive.

    This was the Biltmore Village restaurant week special menu and it did not disappoint. The pork chop was amazing and I wouldn't mind seeing it on the regular or seasonal menus. Service was very good, but at least 2 beverage refills were not as quick as usual, hence very good instead of excellent. The mushrooms and spinach were really good sides to compliment the chop. The ending cheesecake is always a treat. Without a doubt we will be back soon!

    I spend five months in Asheville every year and this is one of three places I go each week. The food and atmosphere are fabulous whether in the bar or dining room. The service is superb and they treat me like a queen and that I am the most important person in the room which is a nice welcoming feeling In fact, now I'm going twice a week because I know how much I'll miss it when I go back to Florida for the winter. You guys and gals are running a five star establishment!

    I've never been disappointed by the excellent food. Three of us enjoyed the steak, of course. We all enjoyed a variety of sides which were all delicious. The chicken breast as well as the salmon were two other dishes ordered and we were all equally satisfied. Despite that it was Restaurant Week, we were served very efficiently. I highly recommend the Wedge salad, which was yummy! Our server recommended a particular wine to two in our party and they loved it! as the evening went on, it seemed our server was pulled into different directions causing a lull in some refills, although we were continued to be served by a couple of other people. Overall, Ruth's Chris is a place we recommend highly and doesn't disappoint. We will return.

    love to eat at the bar when in town as there is a great bar menu but full menu is available. With a larger group the dining room is elegant with great atmosphere and service as well. Everything on the menu is first rate in the way great steakhouses are meant to be. Every staff member is welcoming and the evening just couldn't have been better.

    Experienced another wonderful evening at the classic Ruth Chris. This Ruth Chris I rate as the Best. I guess this is because of the detailed attention from the managers and the servers. This is the finest restaurant in Asheville deserving a Top Rating. I shall return and recommend Ruth Chris Asheville to all who want to get their monies worth.

    Let's face it, dining at Ruth Chris, is like being at a magnificent Country Club without paying any membership dues. Besides the setting, the food and service is consistently superior to many of the restaurants in Asheville. The manager, Tony Creed and assistant Dana Hagan are extremely attentive making an evening to remember. The servers are extremely well trained especially Jacob Miller. The hostesses Olga and Lauren at the front door set the stage by welcoming the diners to Ruth Chris. Some of the customers should respect the upscale restaurant and come better dressed. By the way, love the parking attendants who are very careful with your cars. This definitely a FIVE STAR experience.

    Best Ruth Chris ever and this place stands out even in a restaurant town. Of course, the steaks are out of this world but from top to bottom the food is excellent from the salads, soups, and sides to the desserts. Every detail is perfect, the atmosphere and service are impeccable and there is a great happy hour bar scene and menu with live music in the bar on weekends. The management, Tim and Dana, are very welcoming and accommodating to all guests and Jacob, Larica, and Stacy at the bar are not only great bartenders but lots of fun to be around as well. If you don't have a great evening here you just haven't tried. This place has it all!

Again last weekend the restaurant was outstanding. If you, like my wife and I, truly appreciate the finest, best prepared beef, Ruth's Chris cannot be topped.

    We have eaten at many Ruth's Chris restaurants across the US and have found the food and service to be consistently good. We have always left fully satisfied. Our experience at the Asheville restaurant ended that streak. The food and service were not up to our standards. We felt rushed from the start, rather than ordering our meal in stages and taking time to enjoy each course. While I am sure we could have waited, it seemed our server was in a hurry to get us served. My husband and I both had ribeyes, which we ordered cooked medium. Both steaks were medium well. The mashed potatoes were bland and the creamed corn watery. My broccoli au gratin was great and our warm apple tarts delicious. The manager was friendly and gracious.

    I noted on our online reservation that it was our anniversary. When we arrived, the hosts wished us a happy anniversary and there was a card signed by the staff on our table along with rose petals. Later the manager brought over glasses of champagne and raspberries. None of this was necessary, but is the step beyond that we have come to experience from Ruth's Chris Steak House and its staff. The steaks were the best we've had in Asheville, everything was flavorful and perfectly done to our requested temp. Staff was attentive & aware of where we were in the meal to keep service well paced throughout the evening.
