Service was outstanding, special thanks to our server, Elijah, his attentiveness and personality made our 22nd anniversary dinner a memorable event. In fact, from valet to the host to the server, the experience was awesome.

The food was excellent as always. However, the outdoor seating in cooler weather was not handled well. It needs work. I’ve seen many restaurants do much better in keeping their outdoor seating areas warm. I think it would have been warmer and a bit quieter (lots of loud trucks and sirens 40 feet from patio) if they simply had some plastic drop down walls/curtains and better heaters, such as propane, for each table instead of their small heaters on ceiling spaced far apart with some not even working/on.

Have always had good experiences at all Ruth's Chris but this time was different. Mashed potatoes came out luke warm. Two at the table got luke warm steaks which is NOT what they do! One baked potato was under cooked. Don't know what was going on that night but they were very off their game!

Steaks were dry and food seemed to have sat in back for a while before coming out. Service was good initially then fell off as we had to wait extended periods of time to get service, check, and check payment change returned.

Having a reservation was totally useless. We never got our table. Ended up sitting in the bar and after 30 minutes decided to just eat in the bar. Our waitress was great and the food was good. However the host. Offered excuse that people were staying longer than expected and tables were not opening up. Not my problem. Asked him to at least company my drinks in the bar. No reply.

This is for our patio experience -
My husband and I have eaten at several Ruth’s Chris including New Orleans, Metairie, Louisville, Chicago and Atlanta. We have always been impressed with the food, service and ambiance, as well as the level of quality and consistently across all restaurants. This location fell way under par for a RC experience. I am not even sure why a patio exists. It was adjacent to the intersection of 4 different roads and the traffic noise was obnoxious. We had a wobbly table and were seated next to a family with 2 loud 5 year olds that were running around and playing their devices loudly.
Service was very slow. Drinks were left empty for a while before attention was given. The ahi tuna appetizer was way overcooked. The crab cakes that usually come out nice and neat came out haphazardly plated-one was rectangular and one was broken apart in messy pieces, they also tasted old. The creamed spinach was thicker than usual and almost tasted re-heated. The steaks were good. Thank goodness. Skipped dessert as we didn’t want to be more disappointed. The server did bring out 2 scoops of ice cream with the check that had ice crystals on them as if they were taken from a store bought container that was left open in the freezer too long. Overall, one of the worst fine dining restaurant experiences we have ever had. Such a disappointment.

Reservations for two were at 6:30 but we didn’t get seated for 20 minutes. Although the dining area was not full we were seated next to a loud party of six. After we couldn’t hear what our waitress was saying, we asked to be reseated. We ordered osso buco ravioli for appetizer, chopped salad and steakhouse salad and the prime porterhouse for two. After our appetizer and salads, we waited for almost an hour for the steak to arrive. We finally asked our waitress to get the manager she told us that unfortunately it was going to “be a while” for the steak. We asked for our check a left without the main course.
So disappointing. I don’t know if they were short-staffed or incompetent.

Everything was spectacular except my cut of meat, a rather important consideration for a steakhouse. I ordered the large filet center cut cooked medium. The steak arrived cooked perfectly, but the cut was definitely not a center cut as depicted in the signature Ruth’s Chris ad photo. It was tough and chewy in spots. This has happened at another Ruth’s Chris I have visited in the last few months. I hope it is just an unfortunate coincidence and not a deliberate compromise. All the sides and our service were perfect.

This was our last visit until next year. As usual, our waiter Steve did an outstanding job.
The service and food were both memorable. When we return to Asheville we certainly will have dinner at Ruth's.

Our steaks were excellent! Very tender and flavorful. The sides were good but not any better than a Longhorn or Texas Roadhouse. You can only do so much with a potato. My filet was $61 and didn’t include any sides. So it was very expensive. Expect to pay $100 per person without the purchase of alcohol. I would like to have seen some more creative sides. Our service was just average, our drinks ran low and our leftovers that they took to the back to box never came back. We left a nice tip and had to tip the valet as well. Probably won’t go back.

Excellent food and service. We have visited many Ruth Chris restaurants, however this was our best experience ever! 10 STARS! The wine cellar room that we were seated created the best ambience. The waiter was phenomenal!! The wine and food were exceptional. I cannot rave enough about our experience at the Asheville Ruth Chris!
