As usual the Asheville Ruth Chris provides exceptional service. Food is usually great, this time only good. Crab cakes were not as expected and five ounce lobster tails were much smaller than five ounces. Diners at a nearby table talked loudly and were distracting. We will dine here again, as it is usually a better experience. Anniversary was recognized by most staff and waiter in charge was outstanding in service and attentiveness.

This Ruth’s Chris was the best dining experience from the food, to the service, to the environment. Every staff member obviously cares about each patrons experience. I felt incredibly valued. I’ve visited several Ruth’s Chris and this one takes the cake. Our server, William, was professional, attentive, and personable. We had the tomahawk ribeye, the only appropriate thing to order at RC, and the manager, Ralph, carved it table side to perfection. He portioned the cap and eye beautifully. From being welcomed by Jack and helped by Jonathan and Seth, this was a wonderful dining experience and made for a special memory for my wife’s birthday. Thank you Ruth’s Chris Asheville!

We chose to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday here and our experience was phenomenal. Our waiter, Keith, was attentive but not overbearing and incredibly friendly. We were gifted with a complimentary cream spinach and small cheesecake for her birthday! Keith’s assistant - as well as the hostess staff - were also incredibly genuine and kind. We felt welcome and well taken care of.

It was probably the worst meal I have ever had at Ruth Chris. The steak didn’t seem to be the quality we usually receive. I have eaten in Ruth Chris all over the US and I one not to complain but feel I need to share my displeasure. We dined late and this may have been some of the problem.

Ruth’s Chris never lets us down! The manager is amazing in every way! This time we had Elijah for our waiter and he was also superb! Service was top notch. We shared the huge 40 oz. bone-in porterhouse and yummy is all that can be said. They really use the best meat! For sides we had a loaded baked potato, the corn, amazing Brussel sprouts and mushrooms. All amazing! Unfortunately, we had no tummy room for dessert...next time! Thank you for giving us a wonderful evening! We will be back!

I've been lucky enough to dine at Ruth Chris restaurants across the US and the globe. This team does it right. Our waiter--Chris--was a gem. Took my mother for a special night out and she's still talking about the amazing wedge salad, crab cakes, sweet potato casserole and creamed spinach. She almost cleaned her plate and these days, that's high praise.

Great service, good food. If you're planning on having the lamb chops, call ahead to make sure they have them. While they have plenty of steak on hand, being a steakhouse and all, they ran out of the chops, disappointing us.

I wanted to celebrate my boyfriends birthday, and Ruth’s Chris is his favorite place, so I thought there’s no better place to go! I explained in my reso notes that I wanted this night to be special for him and the entire staff went above and beyond. This night was truly special for him, and we will continue to come here for special occasions!! Also Racheal was an amazing waitress!! She was very knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations.

We decided on Ruth Chris for our anniversary dinner. They did not disappoint. It was one of the nicest dinners and experiences overall I’ve ever had. Our waiter Johnathan was attentive, humorous and incredibly knowledgeable on food and cocktails. The entire staff wished us a Happy Anniversary at least once, if not multiple times. The food was amazing. The steak melted in your mouth. The lobster was to die for. The complimentary champagne to celebrate our night was the icing on the cake. We will be back very soon! What an amazing night!

This was an absolutely wonderful experience, start to finish! Our waitress, Rachel, was kind, helpful, and even surprised us with an extra side and glass of wine apiece! We weren’t sure which bottle of wine to share, so she had the sommelier come speak with us. He was also very kind and knowledgeable, but not at all intimidating. I highly recommend Ruth’s Chris Asheville for a nice night out on the town!

As always, the food and wait staff are exceptional. Our only issue was the unusual slowness of our food getting to us. Something in the kitchen must have gone awry but our server made up for it. And they helped us celebrate our birthdays so apart from that one glitch, it was all good!

We were very disappointed with our meal at Ruth Chris. Both my wife and I ordered 16 ounce ribeye steaks. They were cooked just how we liked; however, my wife’s steak was 50% fat and she couldn’t eat it. And, mine was not the steak that I have grown to love at other Ruth Chris restaurants that I have visited. It was tough and salty. We got a side of mashed potatoes which were nothing but butter! You couldn’t even taste the actual potatoes. While the employees were very pleasant, we were never brought extra bread and I had to wait roughly ten minutes for a refill on my drink. We ultimately left with all but a few bites of our meal in a to-go bag and a $140 ticket.. Only, to stop and get fast food on the way back to our hotel. Our anniversary dinner definitely didn’t go as expected. 😔

I've taken my Mother to Ruth's Chris in Asheville for her birthday every year for the past five year's. We will usually be seated in the small booth area as it is a quiet place to dine. This year was the exception. Unfortunately, the booth across from ours had two couples that hadn't seen each other in awhile and they were so loud that I couldn't carry on a conversation with my Mom sitting across from me. Then there's the matter of the food. We were served our drink's and salad and halfway through my salad they brought out our entire meal. They offered to return it to the kitchen, but then I worried about it being overcooked. By the time I had my Ribeye, it was lukewarm and the mushrooms were cold. The steak was not even close to being "Prime". It was about 3/4" and had so much fat that I could hardly eat it. I only ate about half. The manager was kind enough to deduct it from our check, but by this time the experience was going south. Now onto dessert... I ordered a glass of wine which took forever to get as well as the menu to look over the dessert options. In fact, I got out my phone, pulled up the menu and we made up our minds before the waitstaff even got around to bringing us a menu. SAD. The excuse for the poor service was blamed on their being "so busy." I hope that by next year Asheville has a new steakhouse we can try out that actually has great service and "Prime" steaks, as Ruth's Chris Asheville has neither.
