We had a wonderful experience, as always at Ruth’s Chris in Asheville. The food, service, ambience were all outstanding. Our server, Elijah, made the evening even more enjoyable. He was delightful, attentive and fun. We plan on asking for him next time we go there.

Servers were very attentive and professional yet polite. We loved the food as usual. We’ve eaten at several locations very often but honestly Asheville is one of our best experiences. They care and take care of each patron personally. From the door to signing the check. You will need to likely valet but don’t be turned off... we wore shorts and some denim but they welcome each person in the door.

A trip to Ruth's Chris is well worth it! As an anniversary venue, it can't be beat. We received a warm greeting, by name, as we checked in. There was a nice level of happy talk on the way to our table. Each person that came to the table greeted us by name and gave us good wishes on the occasion of our anniversary. There was no resistance in halving the Cowboy Ribeye, which was one of the best steaks I've ever had. And the bleu cheese crust was a pleasant surprise. It proved to be a real enhancement to a perfectly cooked steak. To be able to have a conversation at the table separates Ruth's Chris from many other restaurants in the area. While the high caliber ambiance, meal and service warrants the overall cost of the evening, that same cost limits visits to special occasions. We will definitely be back.

Timely, constant attentiveness of all staff attending our table, and doing so without interruption to table conversation was outstanding. The food was excellent, cooked exactly as requested. Very satisfied, highly recommend this restaurant, and we will definitely return upon our next visit to Asheville.

His had to be the best steak and mushroom combination I’ve had in Asheville. Everything was perfectly flavored and perfectly cooked. I used no additional sauces or seasonings. The portions are pretty large, so I enjoyed it twice. If you don’t mind paying for the difference in excellence for food and service, you’ll enjoy this place.

Wonderful restaurant. We have been to several Ruth’s Chris Steak Houses and this one is outstanding. The service has ways been top notch. They are attentive without being hovering. The food is always good, fresh and cooked properly. It may be an expensive restaurant but the value is worth every penny.

This was by far NOT my favorite Ruth’s Chris experience. We had to wait nearly 30 minutes to be seated with a reservation. My sister ordered a soda water with cranberry juice, she was brought out a bottle of sparkling water only. When asked to make it right, she was brought a separate glass of cranberry juice. We poured it ourselves to make the drink we wanted and got cranberry juice everywhere. We were given a side of spinach for no apparent reason. It was ice cold. The steaks were good, service was slower than at any other Ruth’s Chris I’ve been too and it wasn’t the best dinner experience to celebrate my sisters upcoming wedding. I had better everything at Texas Roadhouse for 1/8th the price the night before.

Meh. Save your precious dollars. Overblown pretentious and not worth the expense. They make a big deal out of how good their steaks are but frankly I’ve had better at other outlets that are locally sourced. A good place though for a special occasion. But very expensive.

Originally from the Midwest, we miss grain-fed, prime beef and crusty bread since we moved South. We found both at Ruth's Chris. Jonathan has been our waiter on a number of visits. He is personable and always makes our evening special. If you are lucky enough to have Jonathan, ask about his new dog!

If you enjoy fairly ordinary fare - steak, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach vegetables, Ruth's Chris would be your menu. The food, although basic, is good, just not our style - nothing special. If you like being overly catered to without the warmth of genuine care, this would be your place. All the pomp and circumstance was fairly ridiculous we thought. And we paid for that service - extremely high prices, though portions are plentiful. Some people do seem to enjoy this and Ruth's Chris probably fits their bill.

The food was fabulous, especially your specialty, the steak. The low score was attributed to the lack of ambience that we expected. We made reservations three days before the Saturday dinner at 5:00. We arrived about 10 minutes early and was told we would be seated closer to our reservation. Okay, didn't understand since this was not a busy time, but we sat in the bar to wait. The bar staff was super..offering us a cocktail or water. Then we were summoned to be seated, upstairs. The upstairs is more like a private dining area and totally lacked the "feel special" feeling expected for our birthday celebration. We were the only diners for the biggest part of our dinner. We had three wait staff that we encountered, the main wait person that took our order, an assistant, and then the one that brought the food. All three were very nice, but we felt dirty dishes were left at the table too long before dessert was served. Of course dessert was free...and wonderful...but we were not even ask if we would like to have coffee. I guess we came away feeling a lot less than special. A busy hectic time we could have understood, but at 5:00???

This was a date night for my wife and I. We were on a getaway weekend in Asheville. The steak was exceptional. Our waiter did an excellent job. He was very attentive but not overly so. The hostess at the door was friendly and attentive. The staff honored every request on the reservation: time, special seating, wine preference, etc. it was an excellent meal, atmosphere, and ambiance. I would highly recommend Ruth Chris in Asheville!

Nice restaurant, great service, simple valet parking, wayyyyyy over-priced for the food and drinks. Asheville has amazing restaurants in which you can get superb food, drinks, and great service without attaching a mind blowing price tag to it. Good experience, but would not choose to go there again.

The service was excellent. One diner was GF and the waitress went out of her way to make sure it was all good for her by checking with the kitchen and advising selections. It was a little noisy, we were next to the bar but we could have a conversation. It was not what I call a quiet area though. The wine was excellent. The meal was delicious, there were no complaints at all. However I found it was terribly pricey. I would save this restaurant for special occasions only.

We are never disappointed at Ruth's Chris Steakhouses anywhere we travel, but the Asheville location is our home base for fine steaks. Delicious food is the star here, the staff is exceptional and the overall ambiance of the restaurant is perfect for our tastes. Levi seated us. He was quite friendly and poised in his position as greeter, setting a nice mood for the evening. Jody, our server this visit and several times in the past , is exceptional and her assistants, Eli and Chris and (? didn't catch the runner's name), were very personable but never intrusive. This is a classy but not stuffy atmosphere to enjoy a really good dinner. We like that the manager always stops by to ask about our experience. Dana is so engaging - we share a first name in spelling only and had a good laugh about how people can mess up the pronunciation. We've been to three of the four Conway franchise locations (several times in Savannah, a couple in the Charlotte South Park location) and we always feel like family when we are there. We always leave with a good feeling and a take home bag full of leftovers. RC steak sandwiches the next day are another routine that we enjoy after a wonderful evening at the restaurant.
