    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!

    Each time my wife and I dine at Ruth's Chris in Asheville, we come in with high expectations - for the food, for the service, for the atmosphere. 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.

    We go to Ruth's Chris Restaurant for special occasions several times a year. We are always so pleased with the total experience, food, service, ambience, etc. Last Saturday evening was an exception, in only one way. Our waitstaff person would appear, and taking no notice of what was occurring among the four people at the table, interject herself right into the midst to determine her waitstaff questions. I will always in the future request a booth , for more privacy and perhaps more discreet service.

    All around great experience. We celebrated my daughters 13th birthday at Ruth's Chris and what a way to make her feel special and spoiled. Rom the time we arrived with valet parking to arriving at the table (which was ready when we arrived) that had a birthday card signed by all staff, to the excellent appetizers, amazing steaks/sides, and mouth water deserts. Thank you Asheville staff, this experience was the highlight of my daughters day.

    The steaks (Filet) were a hit with all 3 of us. The best we had ever eaten. So nice to have it still hot half way through our meal. We also enjoyed the potatoes Lyonaise. The asparagus and mashed potatoes did not measure up to the rest of the meal. Daniel was a fine server and very patient.

    We've found good pork & chicken when dining out since we've moved to the area from the Midwest, but have found the beef lacking the robust Midwest flavor we enjoy. My husband had been impressed with Ruth's Chris up North so we decided to try the Asheville location. We expected excellent steaks & were prepared to pay a bit more. If steaks can make tears come to your eyes, these did, it was like going home. I even used my bread to make sure I got all the juices on the plate! The surprise was to find a fixed price 'Chef's Summer Menu'. Normally everything is a la carte, in Asheville they offer selected smaller portions of the protein along with an appetizer, side & dessert ! Our server Julia made the dinner memorable

    Actually, everything about the dinner sizzled. The service was personal and attentive. Our server, Robbie, addressed us cordially and by name. His assistant Callie was quick to get anything we needed. The manager Dana stopped by our table a couple of times and visited. The Caesar salad, served almost as soon as we placed our order, was crisp and flavorful. We both had ribeye steaks, medium rare, and shared Lyonnaise potatoes. The steaks were prepared to perfection, the potatoes crispy brown and delicious. We were celebrating a birthday, and Robbie delighted us with a creamy confection to complete a delightful evening.

    We love Ruth's Chris for both special occasions and for a fun night out with friends. Ruth's Chris combines delicious food, a comfortable atmosphere and superior service to create a superb dining experience. While they are known for their steaks (with good reason!) their other dishes are equally spectacular (try the swordfish). They also have a lengthy wine list and a sommelier ready to offer their knowledge and advice.

    The evening started fine although we did have to wait a bit until our cocktail orders were taken. Food was of the expected quality that we have experienced at the many Ruth's Chris locations we have visited in the past. We had asked for a booth as they typically offer a bit more privacy but not at this location. It almost appears as though booths were an afterthought for this relatively new facility. Just a narrow corridor with with basically no privacy. The biggest issue was trying to pay our bill, the waiter simply disappeared and we had to walk to the reception area to find him, apparently he was caught up trying to get his "chores" done so that he could go home. Seems like end of the evening cleanup takes priority over customer service.

    The food is always the best to be had. I had the sampler plate with filet, crab cake and stuffed chicken. My partner had the regular ribeye cooked perfectly. We started with the veal ravioli as an appetizer to try something new. They were very tasty and were finished to the last bite. Our sides included a split loaded baked potato, onion rings (huge), and whole mushrooms (these are great to add to your sizzling plate)! We had leftovers for the next day and once again enjoyed our dining at home. We would recommend all or any of these dishes. Steve, our server was second to none and made sure our dining experience was superb.
