- Overpriced and not that goodBanditVIPDined on 10/11/2014Have had wonderful meals here before. This time the steak was mediocre, the hot plate with the butter all over it overcooked the meat
- Excellent cocktails and foodSuziQVIPDined on 10/10/2014We enjoyed excellent service from the staff. Our cocktails were very good, followed by meals that were cooked to perfection.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great ServiceLizzyVIPDined on 9/25/2014This was our first time at this location-we were frequent Ruth's Chris customers in Illinois...and we were happy to experience the same reliable excellent food and service we have at other RC locations. Brian, our waiter, was attentive without being overbearing. We had the filet and lobster tail 3 course special and it was excellent-perfectly prepared rare plus and the salads and sides and dessert were wonderful. I had mentioned my birthday in the reservations and as we were seated they put birthday sprinkles all over the table which gave the meal a special touch as did the candle and ice cream with the dessert!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good FoodShanDined on 9/20/2014We were celebrating two birthdays. Our waiter Brian was excellent. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. Great food, great service and beautiful desserts with happy birthday written in chocolate. Can't wait to go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Anniversary dinnerronniem1971VIPDined on 9/20/2014Dining at Ruth's Chris is always special, and celebrating our 43rd wedding anniv. was no exception. Our server Danielle is a gem and a delight. She's very personable and we enjoy interacting with her. Service was impeccable as always. We'd never tried the corn chowder before and we both enjoyed it. John had a ribeye done to perfection and my filet mignon w/lobster tail was excellent. Haven't had lobster anywhere for quite awhile and the lobster here was a real treat. Delicious! We enjoyed a very nice anniverary-dessert treat also. thank you!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Anniversary dinnerElenaDined on 9/20/2014Dinner was awesome, steak and lobster cooked to my expectation, broccoli au gratin is fabulous with sweet potato casserole to follow. Good wine list. This Ruth's is a bit farther than my local OC and Pasadena. I will go here again before eating at the loud Ruth's in Orange County.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- So over-ratedSkepticalDined on 9/12/2014Second time visiting Ruth's Chris. Service: Slow response, slow serving. Food: Nothing special. Under-cooked meat. Wine list: Not impressedSpecial Features:
- excellent serviceMomzDined on 9/12/2014Our first visit to the Ruth's Chris in Palm Desert, although we have been to others. Jodi was wonderful - very attentive and congenial. We ordered from the Classics menu and the ribeye was OK - not great. Too much gristle, but it was cooked perfectly and tasty. The lobster tail was a bit overcooked and a little chewy. Overall a good meal. Although the restaurant was not yet very busy, we were stuck in a booth by the kitchen. I know somebody has to sit there. Perhaps when I return I'll request a booth away from the kitchen when I make my reservation.Special Features:
- Fantastic experienceAnnandDavidDined on 9/9/2014We dined at Ruth ' s Chris with friends (who raved about this restaurant). Now we will rave about it too!!!! You can enjoy the three course menu (extremely reasonable for a restaurant of this caliber) or have a porterhouse fit for a king.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/7/2014A perfect evening to celebrate another birthday with friends, fabulous food and fine wine.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- No longer specialJerryDined on 9/4/2014We dined at Ruth's Chris for our wedding anniversary. This restaurant has been our staple for special occasions and has rarely disappointed except for this last visit. We have enjoyed Ruth's Chris not only for it's superb steaks but for its warm personalized service. This seems to have gone the was of commercialization. Even though we had a reservation that stated it was our anniversary and that it was for 2 people, we arrived at our table with 4 places set . The food, while good was no longer special. My filet was just average. the side dishes were also average. For a premium price I expect premium service and this was no longer the case.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent in every wayJanice949VIPDined on 9/3/2014From our server to the food to the wine list, everything was excellent. We enjoyed the 3 course prix fixed dinner @ $55 each and a terrific bottle of wine. Dinner was mostly paced well. It's a pricey dinner but we really enjoyed it! We would return!Special Features:
- erodVIPDined on 8/31/2014We where seated right away, OK table. we waited 15 to 20 min for waiter to take drink order. and another 30 to 40 after cocktails to order. they brought corn chowder instead of lobster bisque, by then we where hungry so my wife kept the chowder and they brought the bisque. they brought the bread after the bisque and salad (strange). we finally received our dinner. it was very good. not bad service but not 5 star service, service more conducive to a french resturant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Melanie Christmas rocksOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 8/30/2014Melanie was amazing. Very friendly and had the perfect timing for when to come check on us. Staff overall was amazing and the food is always top notch. We will be back next time we are in Palm Desert.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- above averageBossmanDined on 8/29/2014Have to admit, slightly disappointed by the steak. It was very tender, cooked perfectly but didn't care much for the seasoning they normally put on top of it. Expected a little more from the side dishes, Lobster Mac & Cheese, asparagus, very good just not outstanding. After dinner coffee was barely lukewarm. Service was above average, but I've dined at other 5 star restaurants and literally the service was right there every single second you were ready for it. Here we waited on a few different occasions to ask for something, there wasn't even someone helping another table that we could have asked. Not quite the service I expect when I drop almost $250 for a nice dinner for 2.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome as alwaysKrollsluvruthsDined on 8/27/2014Ruth's is our "go to" restaurant whether it be a special occasion or just because we love the food, service and atmosphere - we don't even have to look at a menu and our favorite server Jeanette even knows our cocktail order without asking - very impressive - GREAT NIGHT OF FINE DINING!!!Special Features:
- Celebration at Ruth'sDennyDined on 8/25/2014From the sparkle on the table to the final cup of espresso, this dinner was a great anniversary celebration.Special Features:
- Never Let DownAceHandymanDined on 8/24/2014They closed the Ruths Chris where we live, so we were glad to find one for the first dinner out on our vacation. Great Food and Service as always!!Special Features:
- Special eventsGomojo10VIPDined on 8/20/2014This is the best restaurant in the entire Coachella Valley to celebrate a special event. Everyone in the restaurant is friendly, professional, and enthusiastic about what ever we are celebrating. And you can always count on a great mealSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Bad 40Th Aniversary DinnerKP10Dined on 8/16/2014I had my entre (swordfish) returned twice since it was not up to the standard of Ruth Chris Restaurants. I specifically asked the server if their swordfish was the center cut "filet mignon" type of portion and was told "yes". Both pieces of the swordfish was not the same center cut "filet mignon". As had 3 weeks earlier at the Irvine RC Location. One of the managers at the Palm Desert location, Ray McCann inspected the return two pieces of the swordfish and agreed with me that these entrees do not meet what is advertised nor do they meet the Ruth Chris standards and should never had been served to me. I was stilled charged for my entrée.Can you believe it?
- Relax with FriendsRandyandOliviaDined on 8/9/2014One of our favorite places to eat. fantastic steak and the salmon was out of this world delicious.Special Features:
- RoyaltyMrAndMrsMartinezDined on 8/6/2014Went here during my honeymoon with my husband, and it was incredible! We asked them to do something special, and they put rose petals all over our table and printed special menus for us! They treated us like royalty!! I felt so special! On top of the best service I have ever had, the food is the best I have ever eaten hands down! If you have the opportunity to go, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great special occasion restaurantElenaDined on 7/29/2014First time dining at Ruth's Chris was perfect setting for our anniversary - beautifully decorated interior, several dining rooms away from the lively bar area - we were seated in a very quiet area as we requested. Lobster bisque and corn chowder starters were delicious and full servings - two of us had petite filets with prawns - perfectly cooked and seasoned. The other two enjoyed large scallops… Sides were creamed spinach and green beans with roasted garlic - all delicious. Deserts were cheese cake and the best bread pudding with whiskey sauce we've every had. Prices are a bit high but OK for a special occasion out. We will definitely return. Servers were a special treat - friendly and attentive.Special Features:
- Another excellent night out!SoozieqzVIPDined on 7/27/2014We were celebrating a friends promotion and wanted to bring them somewhere fabulous that they have never been so Ruth's Chris fit the bill perfectly! We were greeted warmly by everyone from the valet to the manager. Service was superb, as always. We took advantage of the special Ruth's Classic menu which is a fantastic deal for an incredible meal. Filets & Rib Eye's arrived on those sizzling plates, making quite an impression!As anticipated, every bite was delicious. Our friends were truly blown away by the experience and I'm certain we will all be back soon!Special Features:
- ChadDined on 7/19/2014It was very nice, perfect for food and service, romantic also.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Family weekend Get-a-wayFamilyFirstDined on 7/19/2014My 4yr old, his father and myself got out of the LA hustle and bustle for a quick cheap getaway to Palm desert! We had no real plans besides a nice hotel room poolside and a Family style Saturday night dinner! Ruth's Chris sealed the deal for us and helped us make our getaway a memorable one! Thank you -the SeymoresSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- TerrificOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 7/5/2014Great food and great service! If you are looking for wonderful food, service and a great night out, try this place, as you can't go wrong.Special Features:
- Worse Ruth Chris ExperienceKhumpDined on 7/5/2014Not happy with the Palm Desert Ruth Chris. Customer service is horrible. We never were asked by our waitress if we needed anything else. It took her an hour to check up on us and finally offer us our paid dessert. She went around to other tables and ask quite frequently how they were doing but skipped my table every time. I'm thinking the color of our skin had something to do with it. Even the manager asked everyone around us "everything ok" except my table. Will not ever come back to this particular restaurant again.Special Features:
- Excellent as usualTheDoctorDined on 7/4/2014The food was excellent, as usual. Our waiter Patrick was attentive but not overbearing. Knew the menu well, was able to give helpful advice.Special Features:
- Beyond my expectationsRickDined on 6/28/2014Had a fantastic Porterhouse for two (Really was enough to share with 4 people). From appetizer to dessert (actually no room for dessert) every thing was excellent. Service couldn't be better. Have eaten at the Newport Beach and Las Vegas locations and Palm Desert exceeded both. Lee Ann was very personalble and made sure we were well taken care of. Live locally, definitely will be coming back and requesting Lee Ann as our server.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- As good as it getsTruejulsVIPDined on 6/25/2014We can count on a wonderful dining experience every time we go to Ruth's Chris. The food itself is always perfect. The service is friendly and professional with the manager of the house always stopping by to check on our comfort and satisfaction. The staff always makes us feel we are special. The bar scene is casual and friendly. Very up beat.Special Features:
- PriceyOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 6/23/2014The food was good, however the prices were very expensive and the noise level in this location was very loud which made it difficult to carry on a conversation with our table guests. I wouldn't go back again and pay the astonomical prices, not worth it.Special Features:
- Good food, but that's it.BobeatsDined on 6/22/2014The food was great, as you always find a Ruth's Chris - it's a given, go there and you know what to expect. I have been to many of them over the years and was disappointed by this location. Looks to have been built in 1986 and has had no renovations since - ambiance is terrible, definately not the place to go in Palm Springs for a special occasion! The restaurant was LOUD, so loud in fact that you might as well be dining at the Cheeseckae Factory down the road. You can just about forget having any conversation between a party of two because the tables are packed into this big open room so tightly. Maybe they read their own reviews?.....if so, my advise, close down for 6 months and do a major renovation. It desperately needs it!Special Features:

- Father's Day DinnerRestaurantSophisticate14Dined on 6/15/2014The steaks, wine, salads, sides and desserts we had for dinner were all outstanding, as we've grown to expect at Ruth's Chris experiences over the years. However, the lobster tails were unfortunately too salty for our taste. They were too salty before dipping them in the drawn butter. We mentioned this to the manager, who we hope will change this for future customers.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Just keeps getting better!DesertdinerVIPDined on 6/15/2014My family are regular customers at this amazing restaurant. Some may think of not going because it is a chain. Just FYI -We have never been to any Ruth's Chris that holds a candle to this one. The staff are the utmost professionals. Yes, they will remember what you had to drink the last time you were there and what kind of table you prefer. The food, is just nothing short of perfection! We are originally from New York and live in the desert almost 8 years. We have been to RC's probably a hundred times and just the other night we left the restaurant as it was our first time. Raving about the food, the exceptional service and saying that we can't believe that it just keeps getting better. We love you RC's!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ServiceTime2EatDined on 6/15/2014The 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.Special Features:
