    Made a reservation and it took 15 mins to get seated and if anyone has been to Walnut Creek location there isn’t that much area to hang out to wait for your table. Once sat down waiter got us water but didn’t take the wine glasses away since we got a cocktail vs. wine. Ordered appetizers and ordered. Then the kitchen brought out our mashed potatoes and that was it! I mentioned to the waiter that he might have brought this out to early. He agreed and took the mash potatoes away. But overall great food.

    Ruth Chris is my husband’s favorite restaurant. We went there for an early dinner on a Saturday. Our reservation was at 4:30 but we arrived 15 minutes early. The bar is open so we waited there for about 10 minutes and enjoyed some Pinot Noir and Moscato. They sat us 5 minutes before our reservation. We ordered the crab cakes which were sizzling hot, moist and so flavorful! They are truly the best crab cakes! We also had the stuffed mushrooms which were also very good but the crab cakes are number 1! For our main course my husband and I ordered the Ruth Chris special. One came with an 11 oz filet, lobster tail and a choice side. My husband’s side was a creamy spinach. I chose a 6 oz filet with shrimp and mash potato. The sides of spinach and mash potato are shareable sides. I ordered my filet medium well but I probably should have gotten it medium because it was too cooked for my liking. My husband always gets his medium and he said it was perfect! The ambiance was quiet and the restaurant was not full since we had an early dinner. The food, service and ambiance is always wonderful at this restaurant. We will continue to come here!

    Our tomahawk came out medium rare; we asked for medium well. The lobster bisque was served Luke warm. My wedge salad was an old piece of lettuce - you can tell by the yellowing of the core. Staff apologized; however, for a nice restaurant, their chefs and cook line should be on point. We have been coming here for years, but the last two experiences have been horrible. Not worth the money.

    Took forever to receive the drink orders. Salad came without the second soup order. Had to remind. Soup arrived cold. Then halfway through the soup and salad. The entrées arrived with no place to put them on the table so we sent them back. The petite cut fillet was 1 inches thick. Looking like a hamburger. We have been decades, lover of this restaurant, all over the country, but no more. Management didn’t even apologize.

    Our first experience at Ruth Chris’ for a friend’s birthday. Our table was decorated and we had a nice window view. We had the tomahawk and cowboy steak. Both selections were delicious and would get them again. The sides were enough for four people. Brussel sprouts and garlic mashed were plenty. I was delighted we chose a new spot to try and will be back.

    Standards were just not up to previous visits to this location and one in Woodland Hills in SoCal. Initially seated next to a loud party behind a divider. Relocated to a table next to the front desk- very loud and high traffic area-not ideal for an anniversary celebration. Was will to push through this. Ordered a seafood tower and a pinot from Flowers for $115, only to have to poured into an airating decanter meant for cabs and Bordeaux. Maybe five min into the tower they tried to served the steaks and sides…on our tiny table crammed next to front desk(did I mention?)..bad timing..then when we were finished w tower had to wait 20 min for rest of meal to come. Again timing was way off. No water refresh until just before desert. Waiter did apologize continuously. Still not to par for a Ruth’s. Steaks tasted great but service was chaotic and much confusion was observed when sitting so close to fro t desk where SS dozen guest were milling around until seated. Topped the $50 but thought it should have been less or have a gift cert given for a future visit for poor service- not the fault of the waiter mostly.

    The ambiance and noise level was typical for Ruth Chris we don’t mind it our server was great, the drinks we’re great but our appetizers were literally cold cold as if they had been sitting and the crab cakes were hard on top and dry not sure why they weren’t moist at all but our server did take them back and remove them off our bill. The main course was very good we’d definitely be back just hold off on the appetizers.

    Very mediocre food. Sides are better than the steaks, but you pay high end steakhouse prices for both. Service was friendly and accommodating. I’ve eaten at other Ruth’s Chris locations and had a better overall experience. I won’t likely return to this one.

    We usually love going to Ruth Chris until yesterday. The food was fine although they started running out of different items. We waited an hour past our reservation for a table and the women seating us kept telling people it would be 25minutes and not being honest. The server was good but the experience was disappointing because of the long wait.
