Service was great! The food quality has really gone down hill, plates were warm, not sizzling per normal. Steak was cut open in several places, I assume to check the temp which was close but underdone. My wife’s was rare, she asked for well. The sides were just bad! Potato’s didn’t resemble previous versions, the brusslesprouts were not completely cooked and flavorless. When you spend over $50 for a steak and $15 per side it needs to be done well, it was far from it!!! Not going back, too many great restaurants out there.

The food was very good, the Steaks were excellent. Our server was attentive...in a way. There were supposedly 2 servers helping us on our table. But, they neglected to keep checking if we needed refills on our Water, we had to wait till they passed by & asked them for a refill. They neglected to Clear our empty Cocktail Glasses. They neglected to clear our Apetizer plates. I was highly disappointed that with this upscale restaurant, those minor issues was not attended to. Our Steak Dinner arrived already, and we still had all these used Apetizer Plates on the table & our empty Cocktail Glasses. I had to wait a good 4-5minutes before I can start eating my Tomahawk Ribeye, cuz the table was too crowded with plates, & and it just looked like a mess

The food was outstanding, as is common for Ruth's Chris restaurants. Unfortunately, the ambience was off for a special occasion. There were many guests who were not properly dressed for dinner (wearing hats, baseball jerseys) and many with infants in car seats.

The food is always excellent. However, Ruth's Chris is considered to be a fine dining establishment and they did not live up to that expectation Saturday night. Our first impression was the remnants of the prior dinner on the floor underneath our table. No one had bothered to sweep it up. The waiter, although friendly, was not knowledgeable about the menu (my husband is gluten-free) and not very attentive during our meal. For example, we finally had to pour our own wine, which should be the waiter's job. Although the food is great, I'm not sure we will go back any time soon. It's too expensive to be disappointed.

Enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner at Ruth's Chris in Walnut Creek. The food was prepared perfectly and the flavors were fantastic. We appreciate that the chefs know how to let the quality of the food shine through without overwhelming their dishes with heavy or salty sauces. I wish the menu pricing would allow us to visit more often.

Easter diner with family

We went for Easter dinner. However, we were sat near a table with three young boys that were allowed to talk loudly, climb all over their parents and run around. They were not well behaved for this type of restaurant. They should have taken their children to Chuckee Cheese if they wanted them to have free run of a restaurant. Being Easter Sunday, there were three other families seated in the same section with well behaved children. Kudos to those parents. I can't fault the children because this is just bad parenting, but it did not make for a relaxing dinner when your paying this kind of money to enjoy a meal. That being said, our food and service was great. We always enjoy Ruth's Chris and have visited many throughout the US and they have always been excellent.

Service was great. Food is priced WAY too high for the taste, and quality. Perhaps it was what I ordered? I don't think so. A restaurant with this reputation should have everything on their menu held to the highest expectation. Sorry, can't and won't recommend.

Consistent excellent ambiance and service combined with real PRIME beef makes for a combination that is unusual (since most steak houses serve choice rather than prime beef and the difference is dramatic). More expensive than non-prime beef, but worth the difference for a splurge.

First time, excellent service. Main course was OK, my friends ribeye was delicious. Broccoli, overcooked and greasy. Fingerling potatoes , eh, goopy sauce on it. Lobster Mac n Cheese - it was good, but not great. Definitely needed more flavor.

As usual, the food was fantastic. Wait staff was also fantastic. The hostess was not friendly, and when we asked why we couldn’t get our special table requested to celebrate our special day, she made up something rather than taking the time to figure it out. But the manager came and explained exactly what had actually happened, which all made sense. It just made the evening start of on the wrong foot because of the delivery of the message that was clearly to make us stop asking questions, rather than figuring out the real explanation.

Overall I would say this place is fine. Not the best steak I’ve ever had but certainly not bad, the sides definitely lacked finesse. The restaurant itself looks dated (not in a good old fashioned steak house way) and is a little corporate feeling. I’d say it’s an Ok choice not bad but not amazing.

Great Steaks, Amazing Sides and a good Wine List. However, they were fairly understaffed and the servers seemed extremely overwhelmed. If they fix this, its probably the best Ruths I have been to.
