Have been enjoying dinner at Ruth’s for many years (over 20)! Mainly go to Ruth’s for special occasions- birthdays (many), graduations from MCRD, anniversaries, etc. We live in San Diego and enjoy our annual trip to Palm Springs- both cities offer Visitors and residents an awesome Ruth’s experience- exceptional service, special menu printed with details , commemorating the event, and exceptional food.

Ruth’s Chris never disappoints...the filet mignon was done to perfection. We also enjoyed a Caesar salad, Brussels Sprouts and loaded baked potato. The latter two side dishes were so generous in size we split them between the two of us. We discovered a creat cocktail called the Blackberry Sidecar...highly recommended! We were celebrating our 55th Wedding Anniversary and were treated like Royalty by the staff. They even served us a complimentary desert and took a photo of it all. Thank you for a great meal and evening.

Best steak restaurant in the Coachella Valley--others do not come close even though some charge as much. Service is up to the standard set by the food, even when the place is over-crowded.

I would like to advise you to change your pricing that you have on your on-line displays! It is somewhat deceiving!
The prices on your dinner Menu does not reflect the same as the prices you advertise to be!
Otherwise every thing was pleasant!
The table was thoughtfully set for a birthday theme!
Thank you, Marion

I was disappointed this trip to Ruths Chris. Chicken was over cooked. Son's meat was undercooked. Au gratin side tasted a bit off. Service left us waiting more than usual. Maybe they are not at the top of their game in off season.

Brynn (spelling?) our server was on top of things!!! I had ordered tomato/onions & Blue Cheese & was brought Tomatoes & mozzarella. I was not going to say anything as my wife had started eating. Brynn immediately noticed the mistake and was on top of it. She had my appetizer out in a flash. I was truly impressed. Steaks were great. Thank you

Potatoes were dry.
Waiter really wasn't interested. Appeared to think since we were not ordering drinks, the bill would be small and a waist of his time

We have been going to Ruth Chris for many years. We go every year on our Anniversary which was July 25th. I called them two days prior to our reservation to make sure that they had the confetti,the special dated menu and the photo for our Anniversary. The girl who answered the phone said no problem it will absorb done special for you. The reason I called about this is because they didn’t do it last time. When we got there absolutely none of it was done. The gentleman sitting across from us had his done. I ended up asking our server about it and she came back sprinkled some confetti and had the menus which were dated. Apparently they forgot even though I called. Then when the dessert came out Anniversary was spelled incorrectly (Annivercary) I didn’t even take a picture of it like I normally. This visit was a big disappointment! By the way it was our 26 th Anniversary

Been many time. Usually great food and service. Rihanna our server was terrible. She seemed to get annoyed when we asked her to slow the food service down a bit so we could enjoy our drinks. After that she seemed to ignore us. Usually live the steaks but I could not eat mine as it smelled gamey and like blood. Our bill was brought to the tab,e before our desert.

Last time my wife and daughters went.... about 2 month ago they raved about how good it was. I was there a few days later and it was also good ... but not this time. Our male server was very polite and his service was professional.

I really haven’t eaten at Ruth chris in a a while. And it might be the last. I ordered a 40o tomahawk ribeye med rare. I received a blue steak. Completely raw. I know what you’re thinking why not send it back. Well the problem with that is the steak has already been cut and if would completely dry out that steak. So in a nut shell it would ruin this steak. To be honest I didn’t think it that as bad as it was until we started curing into it. Completely raw with raw steak fat and everything.

I have been eating at various Ruth's Chris Steakhouses for decades. We have eaten at this Palm Desert one many times including at their old location.

The food was excellent as usual. However, when I enter a high end restaurant, I expect to be greeted by lovely, nicely dressed hostesses. This was not the case Wednesday, June 27.

Also, the waitress did not treat us as patrons who were spending $500 for dinner. I expect closer attentive service. All the runners who brought the meal were excellent with quick response.

I hope the management decides to improve the appearance of the hostesses and the service of the waiters/waitresses.

Came to Ruth's Chris to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and they went above and beyond. We had a reserved booth with happy birthday confetti, a customized menu, and a birthday dessert at the end. My boyfriend loved the steak and their Brussels sprouts were so good! However, service was not that great. Everyone there had poor customer service except one gentleman whose name was Isaac. He went over the top for us. He was always attentive to us and treated us with the best customer service I have ever received. He definitely made our first experience at Ruth's Chris exceptional.

Superb dinner - best place, by far, for a delicious steak dinner. We had the Porterhouse for 2 and it was awesome!! Truly a very flavorful and tender steak! The manager (Darrell) and our server, Jasmin (sp?) are best examples of why this is such a top-notch restaurant.

We love Ruth's Chris. Treated John to a special "Father's Day" dinner. We shared crab stuffed mushroom caps (delicious). He had the rib eye & I had the filet mignon, always wonderful. John likes au gratin potatoes (more than I do) so we had them w/dinner. Only disappointment. They seemed barely cooked, almost raw. We ate some after mashing them down. Creamed spinach always a treat. Lovely cheesecake for dessert w/fresh fruit. Our server Danielle very personable and always excellent service. Look forward to our next visit.

As usual food was excellent. The crowd was light so we were alone in this small dining area and it was delightfully QUIET!
This is unusual as the restaurant is typically so noisy that is impossible to hold a normal conversation!
We enjoyed the evening but the room was uncomfortably cold with no relief......guess we will bring extra clothes next time!
