    Great filets! Good wine! Always consistent! We've been to many steak restaurants and we always find ourselves coming back here. We'll also check out the new location. Hope the location is the only thing that changes.

    I have always dined at this location for special occasions with my wife. This visit was not the typical experience we have had in the past. The waiter did not bring out the appetizer we ordered and did not send us home with the correct dessert we ordered "to go." She was too busy in the back showing her crew members pictures on her phone. Has Manager moved to new Ruth's on Westheimer?

    Been here twice before and they just seem to get better. The taste of everything has so much flavor - nothing bland about the dishes served here. the chopped salad - delicious. Filet and grilled shrimp - heaven. Creamed Spinich and AuGratin Potatoes - scrumpcious. RC ought to offer the option of a warm plate versus the super heated plate - just a thought.

    The steaks are cooked to perfection using the top 2% of all beef. My wife had a 6 once filet roped with large shrimp. I had a very tasted 12 once ribeye that was very flavorful. The entrees came with choice of salad, a large side, and dessert. I have eaten their for 15 years and have always had high quality food and the best service.

    I went as a special date night. I must say that the food was delicious. I am picky when it comes to steaks, and this one is one of my top choices. I liked the fact that the restaurant is not one big room. It is divided up into sections. This makes the atmospehre more intimate. I am not sure if the setting was as romantic as I hoped, but definitely very elegant.

    Ruth's Chris is my favorite steak place! I have never had a bad meal there. However,this time the steak was charred on the outside - never happened before. And I heard other people complaining about the same thing. Don't know if there is a new cook or what the problem was, but hope it get's fixed! Don't want to give you up - just go back to cooking it the way you were - that's why people come to you!!

    I have never been here, but have been told by countless people this is one of their favorite restaurants. After one visit, I can honestly say, this is one of my favorite restaurants and cannot wait to got back. The service was great, the steaks were so tender and juicy and the sizzling butter made it that much better. The dessert list was standard, but the dessert was anything but standard. I left the restaurant eating the right amount of food, but I would have been to eat another serving of anything we ordered since the food was that delicious!

    We told them on Open Table it was our anniversary - they had rose pedals all over the table and a card, signed by the staff on the table as well. When dinner was over, the "Over The Top" complimentary dessert was presented and it was addressed for our occasion. Ruth's Chris steak is fantastic, they could improve on the presentation of said steak. It's just a plain look, a steak with great butter on a white plate (period). Overall - another great experience!!!

  • My first visit to your restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/9/2013
    My first visit to your restaurant and it was excellent. The steaks were the very best we have had in a very long time. We're from The Woodlands and usually would eat at Kirby's, Flemming or Perry's for a steak but this was a special occasion so we tried you. The food and service was really excellent - including the Biker Zinfandel #601. The sweet potato choice was really very good; salad and creme broulee also excellent choices. The only area for improvement was the decor: it's time for some improvements in that area. The total bill of $200 was high but matched with very high quality food!

    We went to celebrate a belated Valentine's dinner. We started with the ahi tuna appetizer and it was very good. We split a Caesar salad and a cup of lobster bisque. Nothing really stood out about the salad or bisque but they were very good nonetheless. For our main course we opted for the Porterhouse for Two with a side of au poivre sauce. It was outstanding. The chef achieved a perfect Rare + and the herbed butter they serve on all the steaks made it a memorable gustatory experience. We also had asparagus with hollandaise sauce and au gratin potatoes. They were both excellent as well. Dessert consisted of berries and cream, my favorite.

    Thanks to the staff for making our evening dining a pleasure. I had a steak that was cooked medium well as I requested. It was very tender and tasty. It was my wife Susie's 68th birthday and the reason for our visit. She had been craving for lobster and ordered the lobster tail. It was very tough and she had to scrape it from the shell with a knife in order to eat it. It, I think, was over cooked. Maybe because your restaurant specializes in steak, ordering lobster was a mistake. All of the sides we had were very good. The poorly cooked lobster was our only complaint. George HammAustin Texas

    we were hoping to beat the rush by spending a day before Valentine's day. The food is yummy and delicious but the service waitstaff did not seem to be very attentive. It took 30 mins to get her attention to just get the dessert order. I would go for the food but expect a very long wait for just refill for beverages.

    This place does not compete with other local "high-end" steakhouses. In terms of food and service its closer to Saltgrass or Outback for 3X the money... I do not mind paying what they are asking IF its an awesome experience with "too die for" cuisine. However, we paid $175 inclusive of tip (two served) and we left hungry and very unsatisfied, locally Perry's or Flemmings is much better. We will not be back!

    I like the Ruth's Classics menu selection, I think it's a great deal. 4 courses for $42 or $49 depending on what you order. My only complaint about my dining experience was someone had a toddler in the restaurant that was being disruptive. This aggravates me because I'm spending a lot of money & this restaurant is NOT KID FRIENDLY. Please leave the little ones at home! If you can afford to eat at Ruth's Chris you can definitely afford a baby sitter! If you feel it necessary to bring your child when you go out on a weekend night, take them to Chuck E. Cheese!

    It was wonderful. Our waiter was not as intuitive as he should have been for this five star restaurant...perhaps he was fairly new. It was a birthday celebration and they greeted my mother-in -law at the door with Happy Birthday, had confetti on the table and finished with a great Happy Birthday cheesecake! She was delighted!!!! at 87!! Our food was excellent and the tableside mint julips were over the top in the sterling silver cups! thanks!

    Ruth's Chris is a great place for steaks but we are kind of diet consious so often we get their crab cakes which are the best in town, almost pure fresh crab meat and we get them without the butter sauce on them and they are still delicious. They also offer a vegetable plate alternative and their veggies and as good as it gets. There are so few nice steak houses where you can walk out with a great meal and be able to say, I didn't even break my diet. Service and atmosphere is wonderful.

    Our ribeye was very good. The augratin potatoes were fine but not as special as I'd remembered. Maybe I had some other type before? Salads, asparagus, and drinks were all good. We had a good meal, there was just nothing outstanding for me and I'm not sure why as I've always really enjoyed Ruth's Chris and was really looking forward to going. The service was also very good despite an error on the check which was promptly corrected.
