Their steaks are about the best in the business. Waitstaff is very attentive. Really great experience. Very expensive. Can only go there on very special occasions.

My family & I went to have dinner at Ruth Chris steakhouse. Everything was great except my daughters salmon was not good at all. My son got a lobster tail & the meat was not flavorful at all. Our server Elijah was amazing. We have had him before & he never disappoints. We had our food in a timely manner. Our glasses was never empty. Great job!!! His service alone is a 10 out of 10. We were celebrating our daughters birthday. The food has never disappointed before but, this time it wasn’t as good. Which did not bother us too much. Thanks to all Ruth Chris steakhouse staff for a great evening.

Service amazing. It’s COVID! We understood. By the time our order was taken there were limited entrees. The staff was super friendly, comped our entrees and we got a great laugh for the night.

Restaurant was out of many menu items to include the signature filet. Was not told about this until after being seated. Had to settle for an NY Strip instead of a filet and it was awful, probably worst cut of meat I’ve ever tried to eat. Restaurant should have contacts patrons who had reservations and told them in advance they were out of the signature menu items. Eat at this location often and this was by far the worst experience I’ve had at any restaurant. The wait staff should NOT be the ones informing the customers that the signature items are not available, customers should be made away or this BEFORE taking their seat. Had I been made away of the restaurants failure to have filets for dinner BEFORE being seated I could have left and went to the Grove Park Inn for dinner, instead I was forced to choose a cut of meat that I had to saw through in order to cut, send back to the kitchen because it was way under cooked and ultimately was thrown in the trash because I only ate three bites of it. The waitress (Michelle) and Assistant manager (Zoe) were wonderful at addressing the many failures of the night but this was a major fail for a fine dining restaurant. The normal menu needs to return and stop with the smaller menu and smaller portions. I didn’t even have an option to order a normal chicken breast because that is no longer on the menu. If the Asheville Ruth Chris doesn’t step up the game and resolve these issues it will be out of business within the next year. I would much rather drive to Chophouse 47 or Rick Erwin’s in Greenville SC than to waste my time at the Asheville Ruth Chris again. Less than one star experience, food quality and selection was awful and I forgot to mention that the garlic mashed potatoes were COLD.

Our anniversary dinner experience was extremely disappointing. We have dined here in the past and had a lovely dinner. This was a very different experience. The restaurant was out of many items on their menu. Service was not up to their usual standard. The prices for the very mediocre food was shocking. The cocktail was watered down.

Everything was excellent, from the special request for extra ice in my water glass to attention to detail in our ordering. All staff made sure that our dining experience was superior and all knew it was a special occasion for us and were sure to acknowledge that.

This was my first time dining at Ruth’s Chris and the entire experience was fantastic. The food was phenomenal. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to eat steak from anywhere else again! And our waitress, Michelle was the sweetest. Very attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Asheville.

This was the first time my wife and me ate at Ruth's Chris. This will not be out last. This was some of the best food we have had and they have a good selection of wine and spirits.

The experience at Ruth Chris was amazing. I was super impressed with the service at the bar and also at the table. Our waiter Steve did a great job. I was able to talk with Kenneth the manager and he made the evening special. Great job!

Simply the best steak in America. Ruth's Chris can always be depended upon to deliver an amazing steak on a sizzling hot plate. Our granddaughter was visiting with a friend who had never been. It was a memorable experience.

We have been at this location numerous times and really enjoyed our experience. The last dining occasion wasn’t up to their normal standards for timely service. It looked like they were short handed like most restaurants these days. We’ll be back hoping things improve.
