My only complaint is the area we were siting at was very noisy, so it kind of put a damper on our dining experience. This experience did not take away from the excellent service we received.

We were traveling from Boston and were looking for a steakhouse for my birthday, everything was amazing and our servers were very friendly and helpful. It was such a wonderful experience. I had the blueberry mojito and it was so tasty.

Very average meal for the price. We have been to this restaurant before and it was very good. The ambience was very low as it was Thanksgiving and they were using business rooms to for fill all the need. Unfortunately we had reservations at 6 PM but they were running behind by 45 minutes. We sat in the bar and waited and unfortunately we were seated Next to a lady who had more than enough drinks for the evening. I would not recommend this restaurant at this time.

It was Thanksgiving, they were 30 minutes past our reservations, hostesses seemed apathetic to our having to wait. They should have offered appetizers to the folks waiting, especially those that waited over 45 minutes. I must admit this is the first time we experienced this lack of ownership from Ruth Chris and we had reserved dinner at this same restaurant in the past. I hope they address this issue to alleviate the problem in the future.

The main course was good but all three of the side dishes where so bad we didnt eat them, the garlic mashed potatoes where bland and runny, the asparagus was woody and the seafood fried rice was dry and really fishy tasting.

The food and service were over the top. We were running late due to traffic congestion and when we called they were able to bump or reservation 15 minutes later. Customer service was exceptional.
It was my wife’s birthday and our table was nicely decorated.

booked for wife's birthday and designated during booking, brought the family. unlike previous times, no staff mentioned the occasion or asked. The food was excellent as always, kids liked their meals. Wife and I split a bunch of items. I requested no bacon in the salad, but it still came with bacon, luckily it was larger chunks so I could pick it out. I felt the fine details that we have experienced in the past was lacking. We went earlier so I wouldn't chock it up to a busy dining room. Definitely will go back, but probably the Roseville location.

Ruth's Chris Steak House is our family's tradition for special occasions. We know the food will be excellent, the service exceptional, and our overall experience memorable. This night was no different. We came to celebrate mom's 88th birthday and as expected sat down at a 'decorated' table. The steaks were done to perfection as was the sea bass (a large thick piece of delicate fish). The Crimini mushrooms, Brussels sprouts and grilled asparagus tasty as always. The shrimp starter offered huge shrimp and the traditional sauce just a hint of horseradish (spicy for some palettes are table). The seasonal Frisee salad with beats (gold and red), goat cheese, candied pecans was a bit of a surprise as arugula was part of the mix but not noted on the menu (all other salads note what types of greens are in the mix). When the manager stopped to chat near the end of our evening and we shared our positive remarks, I also noted the surprising "peppery" taste in my salad. He confirmed it was arugula and noted that because it is a seasonal salad all the details are not printed and that I should specifically ask what greens are in a salad the next time I come. Lesson learned for this non-arugula eater. And, not to forget the wine! The 2010 pinot noir from Red Hawk Ranch was exceptional as was the old vine Zinfandel from the Frank family. And our serve was incredibly patient, helpful, caring, and clearly there to make sure we had a wonderful evening. Many thanks for her presence. We're all looking forward to our next "special" occasion to appreciate Ruth's Chris Steak House.

My husband and I were celebrating our 2 yr wedding anniversary. Our dinner table was beautifully decorated with red rose petals. It was very romantic and set for the occasion. Our server (forgot his name) was very attentive and very entertaining. He had an Italian accent. The food was perfect! We were treated with a dessert that said "Happy Anniversary". Everything was perfect.

This past visit was not as I expected. The lunches were good for the other guests. It was a birthday lunch for my brother in law. My hamburger was well done even though I had requested it to be medium. I didn't want to complain but my husband knew I wasn't happy. The server even suggested that it will have a pink center. He insisted that I have another burger cooked, but that wasn't satisfactory being that Ruth Chris bring a 4-5 star restaurant should have cooked it perfect! I hate waiting for a second burger while the others are eating; then I will find myself trying to catch up! Not good! 😡
