    Generally, good food per all RC's. Seemingly service was not 100%. Had to wait for our server to come over and check the food. Actually one medium steak was undercooked and had to go back. Fries seemed slightly undercooked but still good. As I note, still a good experience but when you pay close to $150 per person, I need a bit better. I am from the East Coast and the RC's there seemed more on point.

    Service was so slow. We went with children and had to wait 45 minutes between our starter and getting our entree. Our server tried to say something ridiculous about the fact that one of the children ordered a steak ‘medium-well’ so it takes a long time to cook (kids petit filets here are 4oz)! When the food did come it was very good.

    Service by Melanie was exemplary! Food was not as good as previous RC visits. My prime NY strip was more of a choice tenderness. While my wife’s filet was very tender. We will be back.

    When we really want to be spoiled and have the best beef in the world, we choose this very place. You won’t find a better dining experience. We always get really nice waiters and waitresses in this location in particular. We got a free appetizer! Yazmin was a fantastic waitress and really made us feel special! It’s a well greased machine!

    It was our last night in Palm Dessert, we wanted to have a nice dinner before heading back home. Overall everything was great but the service could have been better. Mark could have been a little more attentive, at one point we had a hard time getting his attention to the point we had ask someone else for help.

    We had dinner reservations at 7:30 and waited 30 more mins once we arrived at the restaurant. Server didn’t greet us for 15 mins. Once she took our drink order and out of fear she wouldn’t return timely we ordered all of our food - we didn’t get our drinks for 15 more minutes. Our appetizer came but was luke warm at best. Manager came by and comped the app since he knew we had been waiting. Our waitress was pleasant but she was struggling. We waited quite a while for our steaks to come. By this time it was 9:15. We arrived at 7:30 with reservations!! The kicker was- our steaks came with none of the sides we ordered. The sides showed up at 9:27 more than 10 mins. Needless to say we had steaks for dinner. Nothing else. We couldn’t believe it. Our server must have forgotten she had already asked us for refills and asked us again and we politely asked her to please cancel the last round she never brought. It was a terrible first experience. We’ll never go back.

    It started off bad. We had reservations and we were ignored walking in. Our waitress was busy with other tables and got our order wrong ( perhaps she is hearing impaired?) by the time we got our order corrected half of our part was already finished. Ugh. No kids cups. Our waitress gave us a paper cup that did not have a lid that fit, she apologized. Maybe we expected too much from this restaurant. We have been to other locations and had lovely experiences, but this is the desert, so who knows. Next year it’s Morton’s. The best part of the night was the cheesecake.

    The food was amazing however it was nearly impossible to enjoy. We had a party of seven and it took much much longer to receive our food than we have ever experienced before. On top of that the restaurant was so cold that we literally could not enjoy the experience. By the time the food got there within minutes the food was cold. We physically or so uncomfortable by the temperature, that we did not stay long enough to enjoy the birthday cake that we brought as part of our celebration that night. Although we spoke to the server and the maître d’ several times, this situation was never rectified and had a profound effect upon our ability to enjoy the evening as we had planned.

    The problem on July 4th was not enough staff. It took forever for someone to come to the table. The man who poured the water dropped an ice cube while pouring and didn’t remove it from the table. The biggest headache was the temperature of the restaurant which was well below uncomfortable. People were so cold it was unpleasant. By the time they raised the temperature we were ready to leave. The food was excellent- no problem there but we are not going back. The entire restaurant is run poorly from the front desk throughout the entire dinner.

    Let me say that this review should not be a reflection of all of the Ruth Chris chains. Walked in to the restaurant and was greeted by 2 rude and inexperienced hosts. They ruined the beginning of our dinner And it was completely unacceptable. Not only did they speak to us in a rude tone, but they also refused to take a suggestion of a table for us and rolled their eyes…. We really couldn’t believe it honestly. Then we were greeted thankfully by a busboy named Brian. Wow, what a nice person and he took pride in his works as well. He should really run the place honestly, he is way over qualified. A compete well rounded and respectful worker. We waited for a long long time for the server and our food. The food was not good, salad was old, sides were cold and the portions were just out of this world small. Oh, and let’s not forget the embarrassing shrimp that accompanied my filet.. SMH. The shrimp was the icing on this horrible night. My husband was shocked, so he asked the waiter to see what the explanation was for this shrimp that I would possibly eat at a mall or something. Then, we had this inappropriate gentleman, possibly a host as well, ask me loudly if I would like a plate of shrimp….. what????? Really????? How dare he embarrass me like that. No respect, no class and a complete horrific experience. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE.
