Service was good, its course plates and cocktail glasses could have been removed sooner. Shoestring potatoes cam out cold to the table, sent back to kitchen, came back overcooked because they double fried them.

Ruth's Chris Steak House does not disappoint. Our party was greeted and seated within minutes of arrival to a specially decorated table fit for our special occasion (which happened to be my wife's birthday). She had a specially prepared menu insert which was cute if you like that sort of thing. The food was prepared according to order and of course arrived on sizzling platters. Expect to spend $60 per person with no drinks at all (tap water) so enjoy this fine meal if price is of no concern and come hungry!

Best steakhouse around! Their steaks are better than Morton’s, and even LG’s here in the CV. The service is nothing short of perfect, you have a waiter and assistant assigned to you table, you never want for anything.....The Manager stops by each table checking on patrons.....
At this Ruth’s Chris you can dress very casual as it’s a touristy town.....
Highly Recommend

Wife's Birthday Dinner
We visited Ruth's Chris Palm Desert for my wife's birthday. I called ahead to make reservations and also tell them it was my wife's birthday. When we arrived and told them our name, the hostess greeted my wife by name and wished her Happy Birthday. We were escorted to our table and were presented with personalized menus inserted into the regular menu with my wife's name at the top wishing her a Happy Birthday.
Our waiter also congratulated my wife! We were pleasantly surprised with all the attention! We have never had any other restaurant go this extra step to make you feel special!!
Now on to the meal, all I can say it was absolutely wonderful. We had what I would consider one of the best steaks we have ever had and we are both regular steak eaters!!
The whole experience was absolutely incredible and to top it off a special Birthday Day dessert was followed by a photo of us presented in a Ruth's Chris card!!
I highly recommend Ruth's Chris for any special occasion!! Just remember it is a high end restaurant and is priced accordingly!!

Our meal was yummy as usual. We love that they go the extra mile for special occasions. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The Manager for the evening Darryl stopped by to wish us well and again to make sure everything was up to par. The food quality, presentation and taste would please any palate. It’s still on our list of favorite go-to restaurants after almost 15 years in the Coachella Valley.

Your cannot beat the chopped salad with fried onions rings on the top, 16oz prime rib eye and sweet potato mash. We have not been there in a long time due to bad service at the front desk 3 years ago. Glad we came back....Keep the wine list updated for the current years as my recommendation.

Our normally melt-in-your-mouth steak happened to be a tough, grainy steak this time. We'll try again - the side dishes were scrumptious, as always.

Delicious as always! We've never had a bad meal at an RC. Petite filet is excellent. Consider trying the sweet potatoes, mushrooms and asparagus. A dining companion had the stuffed chicken. It was great. End the meal with the chocolate lovers coffee.

Upon entering we were greeted with lack of enthusiasm by the hostess, we felt like we were imposing on her time, no smile and they were not busy. They offered to take our picture (our 36th anniversary) but we never received a copy or e-mailed copy. Not happy about that.

We went to Ruth Chris during our honeymoon last week. I had stated on the reservation that it was our honeymoon and when we got to the restaurant our table was full of beautiful rose petals and our menu was personalized congratulation us. The food was delicious, we got the special menu portion that included appetizer and dessert. The service was excellent and very friendly. The wine paring recommendation was great. It was a perfect night.

My wife loves this restaurant. Since it was her birthday she was recognized appropriately due to my previous note on Open Table. She asked for a sauce that was not on their menu and they provided it without hesitation. Service was excellent and the steaks were perfect. I do like their new digs which has been upgraded since we were last here.

The steaks here are definitely among the best in the Coachella Valley! They are a little pricy, but worth it for that “special “ occasion. We started with the crab cakes as an appetizer...excellent choice. Their filet is my favorite, but my husband (by the way we were celebrating our 14th anniversary) had the ribeye; wow! It was delicious. They do cook their meats to perfection!
I would not order creamed spinach or the fingerling potatoes again. Their mashed potatoes & sweet potato casserole are excellent.
Michael, our server made us feel VERY special for this anniversary celebration!
