Went for an impromptu dinner whilst in Palm Desert for a night. Place was very busy but we were seated quickly. Service was attentive and food superb. I had chicken as I'm not a huge red meat eater and was delicious. The rest of our party had steak which was top notch. The lobster mac and cheese was heavenly. Whilst the food is pricey, it is excellent quality. To top off a great night, the server brought me a complimentary birthday desert. Definitely recommend.

What can you say about Ruth's Chris... They always present quality food prepared right. The difference in the various RC's I've visited seems more geographic in nature. The couple dining with us commented more than once that the service was far different (read inferior) to the Nashville location they frequent. At one point, even our server was commenting on the bus-staff and his frustration with poor service. Either way, from the moment we walked in the staff was neither welcoming nor well trained and didn't seem happy to see us. The desert is full of high-end options with very well trained staff, perhaps you should try one of the many other options?

OK, with that off the table, the food was typical RC amazing. My protein was perfectly prepared, hit med-rare exactly and delivered on the always thrilling 500 degree plate with lots and lots of seasoned butter. All sides were equally amazing, cocktails shaken table side and wonderful. So, even with mediocre staff service, the food was a happy tummy time event and I will likely go back again. Kudos to RC's kitchen staff for doing their job well. No... Very, very well!

Our first time here and cant believe we waited so long to get around and enjoy this place!

Only stopped for happy hour but the bar was first class and ambience was very nice....Then the best part! - The appetizers were over the top along with the wine and martinis.
Yes we'll be baak :)

Food was good. Wedge salad was great! My only thing is it's over priced. $40 Steak
Comes with nothing, not even a garnish

Upscale place, especially when everything else is closed after 7-8 pm - even Starbucks??? - just practically absolutely no life around (maybe just Pizza and Albertson), weird .... but be prepare to pay, it is quite expensive ...
