Ruth's Chris Steak House - Asheville Ratings and Reviews
Think elegance, perfection in dining-NOT what we experienced at this RCS. I wanted to take our daughter out to an elegant dinner for her birthday. SHE was the best thing about the evening. I made reservations for 6pm. We expected no delay in being seated. I was contacted earlier in the day to confirm the reservation and special event. We arrived for our reservation and were told it would be just a moment. Neither of the young ladies at the foyer desk offered to take our coats while we waited OR to direct us to the bar. We sat, coats in hand, for 19 minutes- not what I expected WITH a reservation. I eventually walked up to the reservations desk to ask if there was a coat check available. I was uplifted when the hostess approached us and called me by name, Mr. X, to lead us to our table. Again, a hopeful thought when our waitress greeted us by name. NICE TOUCH RCS! Tami was quick to ask our drink preferences; provided a tasting of a couple of wines I was interested in, but unsure of initially. Finally in the dining room, it is going very well. Tami was attentive, knowledgable, friendly, willing to assist with choices. She provided mouthwatering descriptions. We now had very high expectations. Her assistants, Carter & Andrew were also great assets: attentive, respectful, courteous. Now for the food: my wife's filets were perfect, the other two were OK-my ribeye was much too salty for my liking, my daughter's NY strip was a disappointedly chewy and not cooked as she requested. The sides-mushrooms, spinach, and potatoes au gratin: mushrooms, so enticingly described, were VERY disappointing; spinach arrived cold - sent it back for a warmed version; potatoes au gratin were the unappetizing -they lacked the three cheese SAUCE-were mere sliced potatoes with some remanent of melted cheese on one end. The birthday dessert platter (very European style with mini samplings) was a very nice way to finish the meal and achieve what we intended - a celebration.
We were staying at the Biltmore Inn and decided to make a reservation at this Ruth Chris because of its proximity to the estate. The main reason my rating is not a five in most areas would be our greeting at the door. The girl who greeted us was almost rude because one member of our party had been unable to make the trip. She acted as if we had inconvenienced her in our change by one. However, I assume the manager, went beyond our expectations by offering dessert to my granddaughter when her steak had been undercooked. Our waiter was very efficient and kind.
Two couples had purchased the holiday bonus deal and used it last Sunday night. Wonderful service from Frank and Ralph. Food was the best we had ever had at the Asheville location. Also had craft cocktails in the bar before the meal. Excellent bartender. Drinks were expertly made. He even turned the tv to the channel showing NCAA bracket show. Guys appreciated that.
The food was amazing, the service was even better!
We went to Asheville for our one year anniversary. The restaurant brought us a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate. The crab stake was something my husband was skeptical about but he loved it! The flavor was amazing. We ordered the Ruth's chef salad but opted for blue cheese dressing. We fought over who got the last bite. Our steak then arrived in perfect time with perfect temperature. We both didn't care for the Brussels (they had a sweet honey glaze that didn't mix well with our palate) so the server quickly brought us the creamed spinach instead and didn't charge us for the Brussels. We got dessert to go. When we got to the hotel (across the street) it was found that the warm apple pie didn't get warmed, so after a quick call to the restaurant, a server brought us TWO desserts to make up for the minor mistake.
The service was absolutely the best I've ever had! Our server was attentive without being annoying and really made our time special. The environment has a family friendly and warm feel to it. Dress code was pretty open. Will definitely return to the Asheville location!
This was a great dining experience. We come at least twice a year for specials events. This was our first time at this location and this was probably our best experience. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides tasted great and were large enough to share. We will definitely make plans to eat here again when in Asheville.
The food is always wonderful at Ruth's Chris. We have dined at locations all over the South, including the one in New Orleans. This was our first visit to the Asheville location. The service was flawless. Frank was our waiter. He seemed to anticipate what we would ask for, before we could make the request. We were almost 30 minutes late for our reservation due to a traffic issue. We were seated within 10 minutes of our arrival. The restaurant was almost empty. Evidently, our arrival was within 45 minutes of closing. Our only disappointment, we were seated at a VERY UNCOMFORTABLE BOOTH. Looking back I should have requested to be moved. I am a very small person. I did not have 3 inches between me and the table. Same issue for my husband. The only explanation for seating us at such an uncomfortable booth, must have been to "shorten" our evening. After all, the restaurant was almost empty as I have already written. No one wants to linger over a meal in such discomfort. I would have preferred to have the hostess be honest with us when we arrived, inform us that our evening would need to be shortened, giving us the option of returning at a later date. The evening was celebrating my husband's birthday. Too bad that great food and impeccable service was ruined by a miserable seating situation.
While the service was outstanding, the cost of the food did NOT at all match up to the taste and quality of the food. They brag about how hot their broiler is, but all it did in my opinion was cause my $40 steak to have a thick burnt crunchy layer all around it which just made the whole steak taste burnt. I assume this wasn't a fluke as my dinner companion's steak was the exact same way. The $9 baked potato was incredibly dry. The $9 broccoli was just a couple heads of broccoli on a plate. Nothing about ANY of it warrants the outrageous prices. If you're looking to spend double or maybe even triple on your dinner go here. If not, stick with Outback or something.
My husband and I came to Ruth Chris's for Valentine Day with friends. We try to find somewhere new every year. The wait was minimum, the complimentary valet parking was terrific, the service was excellent and the food was exquisite. I do wish they had a couples valentine menu that was a little more affordably for people who cant really afford to go out to places like this but do anyway because they want to treat there spouse to a special evening. But please don't take the wrong way, it was fantastic and we will save again to try and go back here.
We went for Valentines Day and both has the special menu which was quite a good value. We were immediately greeted and taken to our table with no waiting as we had an early reservation. Our server, Ross, was excellent and there were plenty of other servers to attend our every wish. I had the filet and my husband had the ribeye and both were cooked to perfection. I ordered green beans and was given the mashed potatoes by mistake, and the error was quickly corrected (and we were invited to enjoy the potatoes in addition to what we ordered). My husband had the creamed spinach which he very much enjoyed. The sides were large enough to share. They did not skimp on the food for a special day. Dessert was excellent as well, duo of bread pudding and chocolate cheesecake. The bread pudding was very good as was the cheesecake. I couldn't finish them both but wish I had brought one home! Service was great. We felt welcome and weren't rushed at all. The restaurant is definitely a special occasion place, but it's nice to be pampered. From the friendly valet, to the receptionist to all the servers and the manager who stopped by, the experience was excellent. They also have an awesome wine list, and we enjoyed a nice bottle of Cabernet.
Ruth's Chris is where I choose to go for ANY special occasion. For that matter, I choose it anytime I want to enjoy an excellent meal. The Asheville location is outstanding and our server (Matt) went way beyond what he was expected to do to take care of us. Going to Ruth's Chris makes me wonder why we bother with any other restaurant. It's that perfect.
6 of us met for a pre-Valentine's day dinner. Petite filet was exceptional, however the side mushrooms & sea bass needed seasoning. Strip steak was dry & not flavorful enough.
The decor is definitely upscale; some men had jackets & ties.
Staff was accomodating while waiting for one couple to arrive.
Excellent beef that is well-aged and properly prepared! Great sides that will make you feel good about eating your vegetables with your tasty steaks! My favs include Brussel sprouts, spinach, iceberg salad with blue cheese! Soups are delish as well - lobster bisque, seafood gumbo! Can't go wrong with the filet or ribeye! To say nothing of their wonderful shoe string potatoes! A must place to go whenever we travel, we look for a Ruth's Chris steakhouse and go!
We had a stupendous meal at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse Asheville. Steakhouses are our favorite venues so we have dined at many. The entire waitstaff and even the valet were efficient and friendly. Our server Matt was incredible and made the evening perfect. We will be back and will ask for Matt again for sure.
The steak and all sides were cooked to perfection so kudos to the kitchen staff.
I personally head the ribeye my wife had the filet both were Immaculate Lee Cook very tasty and divine besides of course we had to bash potatoes mushrooms and spinach all beautifully prepared but as great as the food was our service was remarkable our waitress Jody was fantastic they even gave me a birthday card signed by all the service people there and I must say it was it touch my heart I would definitely recommend this to anyone and also had a rough copy that was enough to blow your mind and then to come back with a dessert for my birthday and then it was amazing highly recommended very nice place upscale quiet good food good good people try it you will love it
