Danny and Winnie made our 26th anniversary so special! Danny is by far the Best server we have ever had. Kudos to Ruth Chris! Food was superb. Will definitely come back.

the food and service was great. However, our car was broken into in the hour we were in the restaurant. The Elian group does have one unarmed security person for the whole property but maybe Ruth’s Chris should hire another. I assure you that our...dinner would have paid for at least an evening worth of security. We love RC but it certainly wasn’t worth it tonight. We called the police but they didn’t even send an officer. Really. Just google San Antonio and you almost immediately read of crime. I guess they just cant keep up. I would not want to be an officer right now with the liberal crap being spewed. We are only here for medical necessity. Everyone knows not to come. Bummer.More

Thank you @Landchic for your comments. We are investigating this issue with the Eilan. Would you please give the restaurant a call directly at 210-538-8792 and ask for the General Manager? We would like to gather more information. Thanks so much.

Server dropped my food and it had to be replaced by the kitchen. The asparague was so tough, it was inedible and did not come with the hollandaise sauce as ordered. The 11 oz filet was not cooked as ordered. I contacted the manager but...have not received a response in a week. The dinner cost over $200, and I do not plan to give them a third chance.More

Normally we celebrate our Wedding Anniversary at our favorite steak house in Austin, but this year found us in the middle of the week in San Antonio, so we decided to celebrate at Ruth’s Chris in the Eilan. We arrived early so we could sit...at the bar, and enjoy a few Grey Goose Martinis, and talk about the year that had passed. Celebrating in the time of COVID is different to say the least, but the staff did their best to make it a great night. After our drinks, we moved on to our table. Everything was social distanced and pre-prepared for our visit. Our waiter came out with the tray wrapped in plastic to ensure a clean and disinfected table setting. Friendly service, piping hot sides, and two extremely tasty steaks topped off this evening. They even gave us an anniversary dessert that was delicious! We highly recommend Ruth’s Chris in the Elian to all. They have high standards, and what you receive is worth every penny!More

Recently, ate at this location. The steaks were outstanding. The Lobster Mac&Cheese was awful it had jalapeño in it and the Crab Cakes were not seared properly. The service and the atmosphere lacked elegance. Especially, the swiping of credit cards at table side.

This has been our anniversary spot for the past 5 years and this year we received excellent service from Paula! I even stepped out of my comfort zone and tried a NY strip steak this time and it was amazing!! We had great drink suggestions...from Paula and she changed my life by suggesting the NY strip steak! The best part of the meal was the extra care she took when preparing our anniversary dessert plate! Usually the manager stops by the table to wish us a happy anniversary since it's on our reservation and we've been coming to this particular location for a few years now however this time that didn't happen. But Paula made sure we felt special for our anniversary! We will definitely return to Ruth's Chris and will always request Paula to take care of us!!More

Hello, I'm not sure this will get to the correct person but we enjoyed our 37th Anniversary dinner at the Terrace location last night. Ashley was our waitress. I am not sure I have ever had such a thorough, attentive, pleasant and kind server! She...was spot on with everything, made sure our evening was special and that we enjoyed everything! Please let her know , well someone know how pleased we were. We will return if nothing else to have her serve us again. I feel that people do not always get the recognition they deserve. Only criticism, so wanted to shout out! Thank you.More

While staying at the Eilan Resort the Wife and I decided to try this Ruth Chris location and I am really glad we did. We both ordered the Fillet and the were cooked perfectly and just melted in your mouth. For sides we ordered the...Cajun Style creamed spinach and the fire roasted corn, both outstanding and really complimented the steaks. The service was phenomenal, Happy Hour is awesome!!! We Highly Recommend this establishment.More
