    Anniversary
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    I made reservations for our anniversary on Friday Nov 14, 2014. In the past I have been asked if we were there for a special occasion this time I wasn't, just a little touch that we had become used to since visiting Ruth Chris on several occasions. Our server seemed inexperienced and didn't provide the type of service we had become used to on previous visits. He seemed to be rushing from table-to-table, and didn't take our drink orders for at least 10-15 minutes from the time we got seated. I tried something different the shrimp over the mashed potatoes, a complete waste of money, the food was barely warm the same goes for the creamed spinach, as if it sat for 15 minutes and was barely room temperature. I had a margarita made with Patron and it was mediocre at best. On all of my previous visits the manager would stop by and ask about the service and how things were going, this time he/she was nowhere in sight. I did see two young ladies walking around and it appeared they were taking notes, like a head count. The apple dessert with ice cream was bland, the coffee was warm. Overall, a very poor dining experience. In contrast, the food and service across the street at Bandera is much better and at a more reasonable cost.

    I took my boyfriend here for his surprise birthday dinner as he loves his steak. The service here is impeccable - from the time you walk in you feel well cared for. They had happy birthday confetti on our table :) Everyone is very courteous and helpful and the seating process was organized (you should make reservations). The food and drinks were excellent. The only thing I wish I had done was request a more private booth, as we were seated at a table located in the middle of the room. They also came by and took our picture at the end of the dinner and gave us a copy which made for a nice souvenir of a very romantic evening.

    Ruth's Chris is for us a special occasion visit a couple of times a years because we are usually taking the entire family which makes it a little pricy. Food and service are consistently great but prices seem to have risen quite a bit in the last year or so. I would have to think twice about going again with 8 people. Our bill with tip was almost a $1000 and only one person had a cocktail and we ordered no wine. We used to go for $600 or so. No complaints about the quality of the food or the service; just the price.

    The food here was fantastic. I told them (through open table) that it was my wife's birthday that day and the table had little decorations on it and every person who had any contact with us wished her happy birthday. It was great. The steaks are the star of the show and were fantastic. Best steak I ever tasted, bar none. I had the 12 oz Ribeye and my wife had a filet. Both were cooked exactly as ordered and tasted divine. They brought out a free dessert for my wife, which was nice, but it wasn't something she was interested in and my order came with a dessert already, it was a bit awkward because we wanted to order a different one, but were never given the opportunity to ask for a menu. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

    One of the best beef steak filet dinners I've ever had anywhere! I will be back as often as I can afford it. A dinner without alcohol, will at you back more than 50 dollars, before the tip. That said, everything in this restaurant is absolutely worth the cost. You'll be happy you did.

    Ruth Chris really went out of their way to make my wife and I feel special. The food was extraordinary. The service was beyond excellent. I'm blown away by the hospitality I was given for my visit. They were especially attentive to my wife. She really felt special. I will definitely return and make this our special go to spot. And to the chef. Our filets were perfect. Thank you so much Ruth Chris for a magical evening.

    The food is always excellent here. On this occasion, the service was pretty bad. It started off well with the server taking the drink order and the drinks coming in a timely manner. After that, the time it took to order our meal, the time between the salads being served, the entree being served, the dessert being served, and the check coming all took an incredible amount of time. What made it worse was that the air conditioner was blowing right on us.

    We took friends out to celebrate a birthday - it has been perhaps ten years or more since I have dined at a Ruth Chris...a memory of great food, great portions and grand prices. The current menu is excellent and sharing an order worked well...we still had food to take home. The service is simply the best one can expect.

    I had high expectations for Ruth Chris. Salad: Caesar - Great tasting, prepared perfectly, lovely croutons. Entree: Rib eye 16oz - Temperature cooked perfect. Seasoning none to lacking. Drowned with Butter felt like a heart attack waiting to happen. Dessert: Chocolate molten lava - Cooked to perfection, highlight of the night. Service: Outstanding. Our waitress and other wait staff was attentive and very well appreciated. I took my wife here for our wedding anniversary. We had a few minute wait, thought we were getting a great seat. Got seated between another couple and a large group. Expected a little bit more intimacy, or even a booth, which they had plenty of. Probably won't return to give another chance because of the high price.

    A friend was visiting from out of town and we decided to try this place- always heard good things about it. Getting a reservation was not a difficult task. When we entered the facility we were impressed- clean, quiet and very well laid out. We were approached by personable, yet professional staff and taken to our seat. The staff was great! Everyone smile, spoke in a friendly manner and provided great ideas for food. The food turned out better than expected.

    Arrived for happy hour, followed by dinner for my wife's birthday. Happy hour was fantastic and the selection was great. Dinner was good, although my wife was looking forward to the lamb; the server said that they was out of lamb, this was a disappointment because we both were excited to try the lamb. The evening still went well and we had a blast. This is our usual spot for that special occasion and relaxation to end the day.

The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Our waitress was very thorough, she definitely knew her stuff. This is not a place I would go to all the time but maybe once a year for a special occasion due to the price.

    This Ruth's Chris instantly became one of my favorites. It is light, bright, spacious, and friendly. Moreover, the noise level is relatively low, so a civilized conversation is possible. Though the meals are predictably (and consistently) quite delicious, most of the restaurants in this chain are far too noisy (and some are a bit pretentious, with a strained, forced sense of professional service). The Ruth's Chris in East Sacramento is worth the drive from downtown or anywhere else. It is extremely well-managed, and I am eager to return.

    We took our families out to dinner for a celebration. Most had not been before, the servers made the experience very nice for all in our group. The Ruth's classic option was excellent, while allowing for substitutions for different choices very easy. Mostly our steaks were cooked as asked, all other food was spectacular. The coconut ginger lemon drop was fantastic. We have dined at Roseville's Ruth's Chris and we enjoyed the Sacramento location much better. Much quieter and enjoyed the ambiance.

    It may be inappropriate to criticize a steak house for limited and bland alternatives but it seems Ruth's might think about more creative options for the one person out of a foursome who was not in the mood for a steak. The shrimp entree sounded interesting but wasn't;maybe just a bad night. Service superb and steak lovers enjoyed their excellent beef selections . Just a thought that some interest in the rest of us ( who can cook a steak at home and want something special for a $350 dinner)!

    This was the fifth time we have dined at Ruth's Chris, and, if possible, it keeps getting better. I always order a rib-eye rare, and I have yet to be disappointed with the steak's flavor or with it's perfect grilling outcome. We have a reservation to return in June, and we are anticipating that day. The servers are knowledgeable; the hostesses are always friendly and welcoming; the restaurant is beautifully appointed. One thing, however, this last time the noise level was really up. I had to keep asking my mother to repeat herself. The main dining room's noise level was the only negative to an otherwise very nice Mother's Day meal. So, thank you all for wonderful past meals!

    I know that times are tough and you have to get business where you can but on a Friday night I thought a large group in the main dinning room was not appropriate. The bill for four of us was $320. We were anticipating a quiet dinner on Friday night with our friends. The group was distracting. Other nights other than Friday Saturday and Sunday would seem more appropriate.

    I have eaten at Ruth's Chris several time in the past and the steaks have always been great, but this time, there was way too much salt on our filets. The salt overpowered the flavor of the steaks. Everything else was fine, but the main reason to eat here is for the steaks. I wish I had brought this to the attention of the manager or server at the time, but I did not. I may give them another chance in the future, but not sure.

    Once again an excellent experience at Ruth's Chris with my 16 year old son. He loves the lobster appetizer. I had the ahi tuna appetizer which was decent but the salt on the fish and the mustard-soy sauce overpowered the lightly flavored tuna. We both had excellent caesar salads. We shared the porterhouse for two. He ordered some french fries with dinner which were soggy and pretty tasteless. We both shared their amazing cheesecake.

    I liked that our bottle of wine was taken at arrival for decanting; it was ready and waiting at our table when we were seated. Because we were early we were directed to the bar but it was very crowded, but at the moment our reservation time arrived we were taken to our table -- I like that they respect the meaning of a reservation! The rib eye was good & juicy, big enough for two but the mushroom side dish was bland. The chocolate thing at the end was good but not great. Dinner for two, including the $15 corkage fee, was about $150 before tip - a lot, but it was a special occasion. Our waiter was excellent - attentive but not so much in evidence that he bothered us. We were not rushed which helped make our evening a success.
