    We have had our anniversary almost every year for the last 10 years, at Ruth's Chris. We ask for, and always get, our special table, off the dining room in a secluded side room. The service is impeccable and the food is always superb. THANKS!!

    Portions and quality have gone down. I have been dining at Ruth Chris for over 30 years but it is not what it used to be. Flemings is much better for about the same price.

    We were overcharged at least according to the menu they gave us. Don’t get me wrong, we don’t come here thinking we are going to get away cheap, but it still left us sour. Food is always amazing.

    The server was good, but it felt more like Red Lobster type service. All the support staff were excellent. We could not taste the crab in the crab stuffed mushrooms. Nor did we taste any garlic in the garlic mashed potatoes. My sea bass was outstanding and my wife really enjoyed her filet. The Brussel Sprouts were not as good as normal.

    Amazing as usual. Our waiters, Michael and Angel served us well and took extra special care of us. The food was brought to the table hot and well seasoned. The chef did a little extra scenery for us with our dessert because it was our wedding anniversary. We always have a wonderful RuthChris experience.

    We were greeted by a lively hostess that immediately showed us to a table and wished me a happy birthday and sprinkled festive glitter on the table linens. Angel greeted us with two different options of water and Eric was our server extraordinaire. Eric guided us through the menu making appropriate recommendations and followed up after each course was served. Chris came by to check on us several times during the meal and brought us a special tasting option that was creative and delightful. Many many thanks to the entire Ruth’s Chris team. You made my birthday a wonderful and delicious experience.

    We were seated in a small room and we figured we would be blessed with a quiet room. Unfortunately we were seated next to a table of,four that was loud and got louder as the evening wore on. Our party of five eventually gave up trying to converse, finished our meals and skipped dessert. The steaks were excellent as was the service. The noise spoiled a special occasion. When will restaurants be built to improve acoustics? It isn’t rocket science.

    Our visit at Ruth's - Palm Desert was to attend a Prisoner Wine Co. wine dinner. The combination of the Corporate Chef's menu and the wine selections were perfect. The first disappointment of the evening is that the Amuse Bouche, the first item on the menu was never served. The second mishap was that the dessert course was delayed for a long period of time after the main course was served and the plates were cleared from the table.

    I go to Ruth’s Chris often for the happy hour and since it is such a good deal I decided to splurge with friends when we had something to celebrate. It was a bad move. It is a steakhouse so I was expecting high prices but usually the service lets me justify that. However, the waiter, Rafa, disappeared for long periods of time, didn’t replace a water glass though he was asked twice, ignored a request for tea, and when one of my guests ordered a steak salad thinking it would have steak in it ($17), he questioned his entree choice but didn’t clarify that a house steak salad was merely lettuce and tomatoes. What’s more, one of the few relative bargains on the menu is a steak and shrimp combo with a starter, side and dessert. However, at 7:00 pm the restaurant had already run out of shrimp and did not allow that meal to be ordered (they could have replaced the shrimp with a piece of fish, but did not). The manager, when called, acknowledged they ran out of shrimp and divulged that the day before they had run out of some cuts of steak too. I will return for the happy hour (much better service and cheaper too) but I’m not coming back otherwise

There were about 7 dishes on the menu with shrimp but they had none ? First courses were not delivered to our table at the same time, in fact it took about 8 minutes to get the last persons salad Dishes were left on our table after a course No one refilled our water and I ordered a 9 oz glass of wine and was served 5 I will not be going back
