    Full house Saturday night. Pinto was my server, and he is a pro. I had the bone-in NY, and of the many steaks I have enjoyed, this was in the top 5. Every bite was delicious beyond words. The au gratin potatoes were ok and the asparagus was ok as well. The Faust Cabernet was a perfect complement as was the McCallen 12 I started off with. The restaurant needs some freshening up, but the best thing they can do is insist on a dress code. Most men were in shorts and flip flops. Some in ratty Jean shorts and wrinkled t-shirts. Horrific! And those were old and young folk. Be courageous Ruth's Chris! More people will come with some dress code enforced! Class it up peeps!

    We came to palm desert to get away for a few days due to my wife’s mother who passed away recently and we really needed it. I decided to make dinner reservations and picked Ruth Chris steakhouse because we had never been there before and everything was fabulous, the food and service and ambiance. The waiter was awesome and we felt very comfortable and really enjoyed ourselves.

    First trip here, so we weren’t sure what to expect other than delicious food. We were greeted, then sat at a table in the middle of the dining room. Our “assistant” server greeted us. Please note this is the ONLY time we saw him was when he brought us water. Then our “main” server came over and was very rushed and hurried and looked around while talking to us as if we didn’t deserve his full attention. He took our drink order and brought them rather quickly. After we ordered food he didn’t come back to our table until the food came, all of which other people delivered. He never came to ask how it was, or even if we needed anything. When I finally was able to grab his attention, he would forget what I asked for and never return. He also forgot to bring my husband’s espresso until it was time to leave and we had already asked for a container for our leftover dessert. All in all the food was superb, but we will likely save the long drive and go to a different Ruth’s Chris.

    Four of us ordered the fillet special, one with lobster, three with shrimp for entrees. The meat was not Ruth Chris quality. Can get better meat at grocery and do a better job cooking it. We each left half uneaten. Our experience was very underwhelming and with the cost not worth it. We had fond memories of dining here that we no longer share.

    We had 5:30 reservations. Even though the restaurant was less than 1/4 full, they made us wait for 10 minutes. The two hostesses just stood at their computer greeting other customers who they told to wait as well. Then they wanted to seat us in the crowded section of the restaurant at a table next to a screaming child. They finally got us a table in the more empty section but I do not understand the lack of effort to do this in the first place.

Service was professional, courteous and efficient. Food was brought out as requested and was fresh and hot. Whatever Ruth’s Chris did the past year worked! 👍

    Ruth Chris is one of my favorite steak houses, I returned to Palm Desert restaurant last night, service was fine accept the main course came out while we were eating out salad but it was fine, Melissa was our server and I picked the prefix dinner I requested to replace cream spinach for sauté spinach due to allergies which was granted, unfortunately when I received my bill I was charged $5.00 as substitute which I mentioned to Melissa that I had allergies to the cream, her response was this is the charge. I don’t think that was fair due to medical reasons but I paid the bill. In the future Ruth Chris should honor the substitute due to medical reasons. Thank you

    We were celebrating my husband’s birthday as Ruth’s Chris is his favorite steakhouse. We were accompanied by a couple who were experiencing Ruth’s Chris for the first time. They were very impressed with the steaks, the tenderness and especially the sizzling hot plate service. We all loved the Caesar salad and loaded baked potatoes. Excellent service and friendliness of the staff made it a beautiful evening.

    I had requested a table due to my guest’s disability and were taken to a booth so I had to asked the hostess for a table. Our Caesar salads arrived and the dressing was tasteless and I couldn’t catch anyone’s attention to send them back. Our steaks were fantastic, as were the other sides we ordered.
