Ruth's Chris Steak House - Walnut Creek
FATHER'S DAY DINNERWe took my husband to dinner for Fathers' Day on Saturday night. It was the first time my almost adult children had dined at Ruth Chris'. The food was wonderful, the staff was very professional, yet friendly. My husband said that dinner at RC's was one of the highlights of his Fathers' Day weekend.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecialWe went to celebrate our sons 18th birthday and high school graduation. There were gold glitter stars on the table and a special dessert waiting for him written in chocolate. The waiter, Nicholas, was the best. Can't wait to go back.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth the moneyMy family and I had dinner to celebrate a birthday, and we could not have been more pleased.
The food and service were excellent! Everyone left the restaurant very happy - which is an accomplishment! :)
Recommend Ruth's Chris highly.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFillet was to die forWas at Ruth's Chris on a date and ordered the full Fillet. It was large, very tasty, and cooked to order. The sides of sweet potato casserole and creamed spinach were fantastic. Overall experience was good, but the service could have been a bit better and faster.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLike a ballet...Mitch and support staff work like clockwork. A ballet of sorts!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a hit!Our evening was wonderful, as we have come to expect at Ruth's Chris Walnut Creek. The wait staff is attentive without being intrusive, and the meal never disappoints. We continue to go here for special occasions because it is always such a treat. Looking forward to our next visit already!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great steak and good time.We love the bar scene at the Walnut Creek Ruth Chris. Patrick makes the experience wonderful with great martinis, good wine selection and, as always, great food perfectly prepared. Our guests at the booth in the bar were equally appreciative of the service and cocktails. They have long been fans of the restaurant and food, but had not before experienced dining in the bar. It was great fun and the energy level was wonderful. Thank you again Ruth Chris for a great staff and great dining. We'll be back often,5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a delicious meal andWe had a delicious meal and the service was great!

Delicious steaks and lobster and sides of creamed spinach and buttery mashes potatoes. One word sums it all up.... EXCELLENT!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time guestFirst time visiting the Walnut Creek location. We celebrated Mother's Day, we got to the restaurant and got seated right away. The servers were on top of everything, food came on time, salads were fresh, main course were cooked as ordered, and deserts were delicious. They even had a gift certificate for the Mom's afterwards. Very pleased.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome steaks...Ruth's Chris never fails to deliver a great steak. I got greedy this time and ordered a Cowboy Ribeye (basically a thick cut ribeye with the bone in) cooked medium rare. The sides were a loaded baked potato, broiled tomatoes, and mushrooms. My buddy ordered a regular ribeye. The steaks came out perfect. Tender, tasty and guilty-as-sin. No other restaurant can quite duplicate their flavor. I like Ruth's Chris steaks because they're unadulterated and they let their steaks stand on their own. The butter only enhances the flavor of the meat. For dessert, I had their bread pudding with whiskey sauce. Overall, a perfectly awesome meal. I probably gained a couple of pounds, but it was all worth it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a large party of 9We had a large party of 9 and everything was impecable and tasty.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit was for our anniversaryFor our one year anniversary, I took her to Ruth's Chris. On the Open Table note I mentioned that it was our anniversary. The hostess, our waiter and even the general manager came over to congratulate us! The food was fantastic and the service was stellar. To top it all off, the waitress gave us our complimentary dessert of choice with Happy Anniversary written in caramel on the plate. A great experience to say the least. Thanks to the entire staff.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always Ruth Chris doesAs always Ruth Chris does not disappoint,is it pricey YES but for a special occasion it is worth it....4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak was delicious and juicySteak was delicious and juicy as usual, sides are tasty. service was very friendly, the manager came to check on us towards the end of our dinner, it gave a great personal touch to the experience, will definitely be back.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOutrageously expensive, butOutrageously expensive, but we knew that going in. Strictly a very special occasion place for me. Still, of all the local steak places of this caliber it is the best. Particularly liked the big windows and open atmosphere. Other steak houses tend to be very dark with heavy furniture and decor. Would definitely go back again, but not until the next special occasion.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimerWent here for my birthday in April. Knew it was very expensive going in, so no "sticker shock" when I looked at the prices. We ordered the porterhouse for 2 (~$85, I think). This could have fed four people who are not ravenous but it still would have been plenty. Steak was indescribably good. Ordered rarer than usual because we knew it was going to be tender, but goodness. What a steak. The broccoli gratin was also divine. Also had crab cakes. Very little breading/filler, so nearly all crab meat. Also delicious. I received a very yummy complimentary birthday dessert. Staff were so warm (without being cloying) and the manager checked on us at the end of our meal. A special meal. Made reservations for a return visit for Mother's Day.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything as expected andEverything as expected and more from this remarkable chain4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our lastWe really enjoyed our last visit to Ruth's Chris Steak House.

FromEverthing was excellent. From the greeting by the hostess at the front and throughout the evening the sevice was outstanding. The steak and shrimp were delicious. This place is awesome.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went during Walnut Creek'sWe went during Walnut Creek's Restaurant Week and we could pick one of two special menus. Both offered a choice between a couple of salads or soup, and then one of three entrees. Two set desserst were included. It was pretty busy for a Monday night but wasn't noisy. The service was excellent and the food, delicious. We would definitely go back.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit andThis was our first visit and we were impressed with the caring of the greeters and servers in Walnut Creek and the fact that they have found a way to keep their plates hot for long periods of time while you are eating your entree. Probably a bit pricey for what you get, but the food was superb. I would easily recommend it to friends and go back myself in the future.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTook a friend there for herTook a friend there for her birthday. The hostess sprinkled happy birthday confetti on the table, a nice subtle gesture. We both had the 6oz. filet with shrimp, both excellent. The mashed potatoes and desserts were good, but nothing to get too excited about. Wine list was very adequate.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy family dined here to celebrateMy family dined here to celebrate my hubby's birthday last week. He loves the ribeye and I usually get the filet mignon. The food is always good and we both love the berries and sweet cream for dessert. The service seems to be on the slow side for the past two times we've been here.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always visit the SF location.We always visit the SF location. Mainly because we always wait till the last minute to reserve a table. We're so glad we received an Open Table email with times available. The food is always great, but our server Vanessa made it all better! She's great and suggested just the right choices to us. We'll be visiting the Walnut Creek location more often!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, a truly memorableAs always, a truly memorable meal. We had all the usual suspects: medium rare filet mignon (outstanding), fresh asparagus, potatoes au gratin, wedge salad, cheesecake for dessert. Each and every item was spectacular and nothing came home with us.
Not a restaurant I could recommend for an everyday meal; but one to be saved and savored for a special occasion (in this case my birthday). Excellent recommendation was the 2008 Silver Oak cab ($102 for the bottle...a steal). It complimented the entire meal and made the night a truly memorable event. See you again next year (if not sooner!)3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA Special Occassion establishmentOur 4th time @ this establishment and always, a great Filet and side dishes, attentive servers. Anniversary or Birthday celebrations, they do special things to remind you they appreciate your patronage.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Cow ate butter her entire lifeI had never been here before. The steak was AMAZING! The service was great!
Pricey, but well worth it!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was wonderful. OurThe food was wonderful. Our server, Kali was so helpful and there whenever we needed anything. Her recommendations were great. All in all, one of my finest dining experiences as well as a great birthday!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good...but a bit "off" this yrWe love Ruth's Chris for special occasions...it's an annual treat for my husband's birthday.
Because the restaurant is expensive, I have high expectations...this year, it was just a little "off" ... our server seemed distracted, and I was especially disappointed that she didn't remember I had specifically noted it was a birthday celebration. Normally when I do that, they have a nice little dessert...I saw other tables getting that treatment, but we didn't...so, while it was an excellent meal, this oversite cost them a "star" across the board.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMwe are always amazed at howwe are always amazed at how wonderful the food and service are, they've never let us down.
