Been to all the steak places in the area and this is by far the best steak house!
Service: The people there are always friendly. They don't rush you, but they also don't ignore you. They want you to order plenty, but aren't pushy if you don't.
Food: l. Delicious! Big piece of prime rib, awesome potato's and perfect veggies for 30 bucks. Their hot rolls are very good as well. I hate it when nice restaurants serve you cold bread. I've also had the seafood risotto. It had big shrimp, scallops and fish. This was a very tasty risotto. I would highly recommend it. A smart person once told me that steak houses serve the best seafood. If I based it off of this dish, they were right!
Price: A pricey hit makes this place a great value! I would rather come to than those other places.
Bottom line - this place has my delicious seal of approval
I am pretty surprised by the raters here because I have been here multiple times and have enjoyed my experience every time. The service is impeccable and the meat is really well done. I have been to my share and know good steak and I am comfortable spending 50-60 bucks a head for good steak. I was here one time and the NY steak I had was slightly overdone. I sent it back and they brought a new one out in less than 10 min. They also had the manager come over and apologize and sent us a free dessert! That was not required but the gesture was appreciative. The great part about this place is that the steaks come out sizzling hot which is the best because once the meat is room temperature it loses some of its flavor. I would go back without question.

My family and I went to Ruth's Walnut Creek for our 10th year anniversary! The food was out of this world, our server April was phenomenal. The manager stopped by few times and when he found out about our anniversary he brought a fresh and beautiful red rose to my wife. When I thought everything was over, the amazing Manager (Hal Campos) brought us some champagne to celebrate and finalize our evening with style.
Everyone was very happy, from costumers to all the staff. The best experience we ever had when comes to restaurants and food. It was worth it more than we paid for it!
Please, go ahead and try!
I have been here twice, and am still trying to figure out what the big deal is. I am a meat-eater who loves a great steak. I can have a good steak at home for about $100 less! The cost of this place is outrageous. The steaks come separately, with absolutely no sides. You end up paying out the nose just to have a meal. If you get a gift card, go there, otherwise, go someplace cheaper!
I've heard a lot of hype about this restaurant. I've been to my share of pricy joints. I don't see what the hype about this place is. Nothing special. Very expensive for a very small entree, and nothing more special than any other steak Ive had from a decent restaurant.

We were really excited to eat somewhere new, and were looking forward to the great experience that everyone spoke so highly about. Unfortunately we did not receive ?4? star treatment.
When we first arrived we were seated right away and were given bread and an option of waters. Things seemed to be going well until we waited for twenty minutes before saying anything to a passing server. During the twenty minutes several servers passed by and did not even acknowledge our presence.
We made it obvious that we were ready to order by putting our menus down and trying to make eye contact with anyone who could help us. But yet we were still unattended to. Finally I got the attention from a server named W*** who seemed not only annoyed but bothered because I requested for service. He said he would find our server and then quickly left. When our waitress arrived she apologized for the confusion and explained that she wasn?t told that another server had switched tables with her. She handled the situation with professionalism and proceeded to take our order. My boyfriend and I thought that everything would go great from that point on, until the waitress at the table next to us made a rude commit to her table about us. She mimicked me and then joked about how we had complained about the customer service we were not receiving. You don?t need me to tell you that making fun of customers is acceptable behavior, especially right in front of them.
As for the food, everything was pretty good, but the meat was not as great as everyone exspects it to be. If I had to do it over again I would deffinently go to Vic Stewarts( another steak resturant in WC). for their service is wounderful and their meat and produce are fresh and worth the money spent.
I posted this rating because I was suprised by the negative emotions I left with and the lack of response I recieved from the general manager when writing a letter over a week ago.

This always cracks me up, I'm far from rich and I rarely get the opportunity to dine at a steakhouse or any restaurant as nice as Ruth's Chris. I do however understand that when I do it ""WILL"" be expensive.
I've been two time over the past six months ""thanks to a couple of $25.00 certificates that absorbed a fraction of the bill"" and both time I was blown away by the quality of the service, the atmosphere and teh amazing quality of the food. I've had the Rib-Eye & Bone-in Rib-Eye (Cowboy Rib Eye) and my Fiance has had the T-bone and the Filet Mgnon. The Spinach Salad & Ceasar Salad are great... the broiled tomatoes are our favorite side by far.
When I do drink with my steak it's beer not wine so I don't have much to tell you about that, but again you're paying for the service here and everything is going to be expensive, get used to it.
No matter which way you slice it, these are the best steaks I've had... ever... in my life. Sounds like an overstatement, but it's not. Fantastic meals, great service amazing experience.
Get that wallet out, get over it and try to have a good time!

I have been here a few times. The service and atmosphere have always been great and I have enjoyed the food with one exception. I like Filet, and all but one time it has been below the standard I expect for this restaurant (not cooked correctly and a bit too fatty). Everything else has been great (although a bit expensive for what you get). I have heard the rib eye is fabulous, so will try that next time.

Prices were high; lack of good wine choices below $ 50.00. Ended up spending $ 51.00 for Fess Parker Pinot Noir. Excellent wine, but normally can find wine in the $ 30.00 range. It is possible to get good Ceasar salad $ 5.00 (1/2 size). Knocked off points for the Martini not being cold enough and served in a non-chilled glass.The filet $ 30.00 was excellent and we had it oscar style (one crab cake and asparagus with hollandaise sauce) $ 13.95. We also ordered the sweet potato with pecans side dish, which I highly recommend. The side dishes are $ 6.95 , but are adequate for two people. Ruth Chris is a special occasion restaurant. The tables on both sides of us were celebrating birthdays as we were. Did get free dessert for my birthday (Banana Cream Pie), 6.95. Total bill was $ 360.00 for a party of four.
