When was the last time you planned a date night for a Wednesday? Ruth’s Chris Steak House wants to change that, with the Wednesday date night special where you can spend an evening, sharing a meal with romantic ambiance, quiet lighting.
The date night special includes: two glasses of wine, one appetizer, two entrees, two family-style side dishes to share and the choice of a dessert, and happens every Wednesday. Last week, we had the chance to experience the warm ambiance and delicious food, for ourselves, on a mid-week date Edmonton date night.
The delicious meal started quickly, with the delivery of warm, cheesy bread. Quickly after the bread arrived, we were presented with our appetizers. The Lemon Thai chicken and stuffed mushroom caps – we ordered an extra to give an extra on the menu a try, but one appetizer is more than enough to share, as a hearty meal. The Lemon Thai chicken was highly recommended and brought a bright flavour to the crisp chicken. The perfect size to share, it’s a zesty start to the meal.
The stuffed chicken and petit-filet we ordered for the entree, were equally delicious, classic and arrived sizzling on a five hundred degree plate with herb butter. As great date nights go, we exchanged tastes of each other’s meal, and enjoyed both. A delicious piece of meat, the petit-filet was the perfect size when paired with the family-style sides that we had ordered to share. For sides, the mashed potatoes were cloud like, a traditional choice for the flavourful stuffed chicken, filled with flavour and the fries were well-seasoned, and arrived in a fun spiral arrangement.
Ruth Chris was a lovely change from the too-loud atmosphere of many other places that we find ourselves on those weekday-date-nights, it was a slow, wonderful experience where we took our time with each course, indulging in three courses, ending in creme brulee and renewed conversation.
The creme brulee had a delicious crust, served with fresh berries. Classic vanilla, it was perfectly creamy and the perfect size to share – well, who really wants to share creme brulee that delicious? The perfect layer of crisp sugar on top and melt-in-your-mouth, creamy flavour, had one of using that tiny dessert spoon to get every last spoonful from the ramekin.
For the value and experience ($110 + gratuity), the Wednesday Date Night special at Ruth’s Chris Steak House will have us back when we’re seeking a delicious, quiet and ambient dinner through the week. Comparable to a great meal out, the romantic atmosphere, fireplace, mantle and grand decor that feels more like a ballroom than a restaurant, will have you planning your next meal.
