We've made many visits over many years and this was the first time we have been disappointed with the service. Service was slow and inattentive. Our waiter seemed preoccupied and hurried. The only person who made a point of being friendly was the person who brought our food, who I believe was a floor manager. The steaks were wonderful, as... More

My wife and I save Ruth's Chris Steak House for special occasions since it's pretty pricey for us. To make it more affordable, we order form a pre-fixe menu that they typically have during holidays. Before our meal we each had a drink from the bar. Mine a blueberry mojito with just the right amount of rum and muddled blueberries.... More

I traveled to Austin on a business trip and while on 6th decided to stop into Ruth's Chris as I'm a big steak fan. The staff were lovely, the food was some pretty decent steak and the prices were reasonable. It's a very formal atmosphere inside, I wouldn't recommend eating alone but with couples/groups it would be absolutely fine. Prices... More

Atmosphere was pleasant on a Saturday evening. Seated near front of house. Service was poor : Ordered an Argentinian Malbec and the server tried, several times, to push a spanish malbec instead. One food order was also incorrect. Fries came out cold which they replaced immediately. Everyone thought the steaks themselves were good. Shame about everything else.

Food was great on all levels but service let's talk. At the bar there were 3 bartenders that couldn't keep up with the orders. Some drinks were spot on others were hit and miss. The waiters had too many tables that service lack so much my drinks were not refilled. Food 10 out 8 and Service 10 out 4.

Had a good dinner on Christmas Day. A little slow at times but considering it was Christmas Day it was pretty good. I would go back.

Went here for a birthday dinner and they are always amazing. Filet is to die for. Cocktails are superb. Waitstaff is top notch. They really leave you wanting for anything. It would be hard to find a better steak!
