Ruth's Chris Steak House - San Antonio (Downtown)
Our steak was not cooked properlyOur steak was not cooked properly the first time. Our waiter was very polite and had it immediately grilled to our specifications.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDidn't live up to expectationsI did not like the way they upsell water at the beginning of the meal. The server offered still or sparkling water. Not wanting sparkling water we chose still water expecting regular tap water. Instead we received an $8 bottle of water. There were three of us in the party. We all ordered salads. The wedge salads were to be expected. The spinach and strawberry salad on the special menu was okay but arrived with too much dressing. Two out of the three steaks ordered were not cooked as ordered. The shoestring fries were greasy and tasteless. It took about five minutes for our server to come back around so we could ask to have the steak fixed. It was fixed. Again, everything was okay but didn't impress. I won't hurry back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphere and Food ReviewA little dark but it's a clean and romantic place to take a special lady too. As always the steaks are cooked to perfection and the way you like it. However, my baked potato was under cooked ...very hard and not very tasty; nonetheless, my waitress corrected the issue with courtesy and professionalism. I love Ruth Chris and recommend this eatery to everyone!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Downtown SanFirst time at Downtown San Antonio Ruth's- have been to others in 3 states and this visit was comparable.
Filet was good- a little bland but cooked just as requested. Spouse had stuffed chicken and it was tasty but had more cheese stuffed
inside than I recalled at other locations. Service was good, not outstanding, but consistent with what is expected at
a restaurant like this. Live music was nice althougha little later after dinner hour.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but disappointing...I wasn't blown away like I usually am. Service is always great. Food was good except what you would think is their signature. The fillet. I order the fillet and it was hard to cut and even had some grizzle in it. The fillet! The rest of the food was fantastic but the steak was disappointing. I was in a hurry so I didn't mention it to the manager. In hindsight I really should have.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, fun nightMy wife and I took her parents visiting from lake charles. Special treat for them since they dont have one in their city. We started off with the best martinis in the city. Javier, the head bartender is one of the best in thr city. We decided to dine in the bar area and watch the march madness action. We split the large fillet and had the exceptional potatoes au gratin and steamed spinach. My father inlaw started off with the delicious onion soup , split the wedge salad and then feasted on the prime rib.
All the food was top notch anf it made for a memorable evening. There is a little club across the street called Ringside that has a band thst plays 60s and 70s music. We had a blast!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
