My husband and I celebrated my birthday with a dinner at Ruth’s Chris. Everything we had was amazing, from the perfectly cooked steak to the yummy mushrooms! The bbq shrimp was also amazing! We sat by the window and had a beautiful view of Walnut Creek. We’ll definitely go again!

Christina made our night very special and we greatly appreciate it. Her manager was also very kind (the tall blonde gentleman). Thank you both!

Food was delicious but the service was unprofessional and not what you would expect at a high end restaurant.

Feb. 18, 2018 Valentine's Anniversary Dinner: Aaron (Frederick) made our first time dining experience at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse-Walnut Creek perfect from start to finish. A Server's demeanor can really make or break the quality of a special occasion, and he definitely made it! The assisting wait-staff were on cue. Our cocktails and meals were delectable. My Two-Star rating for Ambiance and Value: The room we were seated in felt and smelled like it was an overflow room; meaning the partition wall and the dusty odor (from carpet?) were not pleasing. We were squashed into a corner. I pulled table away from corner wall to beat the claustrophobic vibe. Thankfully, I faced the half-frosted window with sky and parking structure view, and my spouse appreciated the corner coziness. I would need to tour the venue layout before returning for a special or business meeting occasion. The $10.00 Valet Service upon arrival was attentive. The Valet Attendant after our meal, had misplaced our ticket, after my spouse had given it to him 15 mins. prior, and we were still waiting after the crowd dissipated. Long time to wait in an evening temperature of 38º. Overall, a memorable evening!

Our annual Valentine's dinner. We delayed our meal until the weekend due to school obligations. We also enjoy having dinner here. The staff was friendly and very attentive to our needs and the food was delicious.

My wife and I were seated next to a large family that was extremely noisy, had to talk loud and lean over our food to have conversation, and it was still a challenge

Food was great as usual—just can’t beat their salads and steaks! Service was a bit off, as if slightly distracted, even though restaurant was not all that busy. Won’t keep me from going back as soon as I can though.

Another good meal at Ruth Chris, the steaks were not as tender as I remember though. The steaks were cooked perfectly, just a little on the chewy side but good flavor. The service was amazing as always and I feel my boyfriend felt quite special for his birthday. There was a crying baby behind us and that made it quite loud at times. Overall, I feel it was a good, but not great experience.

Overall the experience was great, at that price however the side orders should have been complimentary. Good spot for special occasions. I recommend it!

We had a great experience. Aaron was our waiter and he was really good. He struck a good balance between being attentive and not hovering. We started with the harvest salad which had lots of flavor treats like the Cajun pecans. Then we had the tomahawk steak with shoestring fries and the fresh corn with jalapeños. They explained the various cuts of meat in the tomahawk steak when they served it. We ordered medium rare and it was perfect. It was so good. And they wrapped up the bone for us and I haven’t seen our lab so happy in some time. The thing that seems trivial but actually made a huge difference was they bring you a plate that is heated to over 500 degrees. So as you eat your steak it stays hot but still medium rare in the middle. We had the chocolate duo for desert and it was the perfect finish. We will definitely be back!!

Ruth's Chris is a steakhouse chain with a certain reputation that makes you expect certain things to happen on a visit. this location was much better when it first opened many years ago.

Our food prep was not up to par. We both had fillets that were perfectly cooked charred rare, but did not arrive in the bubbling herb butter Ruth's is noted for. The lobster mac and cheese was only okay, but over cooked and a bit dried out. The crab stack wasn't in a stack at all and was made with smaller pieces of lump crab than is usual at a Ruth's Chris and had red peppers and mango (huh?). The room itself was tired and over packed. Our server team was great, but the service itself was slow.

We won't be going back I guess. I am sure there are better steak house options in Walnut Creek, we just haven't tried any others.
