    I have been here too many times to count, but each visit is always a treat. This visit I had the Filet (Med. Well) with spinach au gratin and the sweet potato casserole. It was amazing!!!!! Even the leftovers were incredible. Ruth's never disappoints with their service either. Can't wait for my next visit.

    I ordered steak like I typically do, but for some reason, it was tough and tasteless this time. My order was med temp, cajun seasoning. Initially, my steak was prepared incorrectly. Tough with a hard exterior. The second steak was med temp, but still very tough. Stephanie, my server, was incredibly nice and tried to fix the issue, but I didn't want to put her out. I am always pleased, but today was tough to chew. Sorry..

    Came in to enjoy HRW menu for the first time with friends. Service was mediocre but our server seemed to be busy with at least 4 other tables. Not sure if dropping off to go boxes and bags was a way of service but that was odd. Ambiance was nice and noise level wasn't so loud at all. It was so nice to see a ribeye for HRW and that's what prompted our visit. Looking forward to it again!

    Reservations 9pm, Party of 6. Checked in with hostess at 8:59pm and was alerted "we are clean up tables, it going to be little wait." No problem how about party how is still slowing walking in from valet have a cocktail and wait to be seated. Goose Martini's water great conversation and we waited. 25 minutes I check back with the hostess.. We are all here... 45 minutes.. Hey what is going on.. She responds "WOW time flies give me 10 more minutes we are cleaning a table now." 53 Minutes later she comes over and says your table is ready, sorry for the wait. The food was great. Dragan out waiter was excellent!! But damn 53 Minutes really Ruth Chris??

    We started going to Ruth's Chris in August long before Restaurant Week came to be. A birthday in our family has made it a tradition. This year, the food was a bit disappointing, though the service was still top notch. The stuffed mushrooms were mundane, really needing some flavor. I took chicken - yes, chicken at a steak place - but have had it before and knew it to be excellent. Not so much in 2014. And I ordered an extra dessert, opting to take the delicious cheesecake that came with the RW meal to a friend. My "extra" banana cream pie with caramelized bananas and white chocolate was about as tasteless as they could have made it. Kudos to the wine list, which features excellent choices even in the "by the glass" option.

    The atmosphere was nice, food was good, don't get me wrong, but for the amount we spent, even being for restaurant weeks, the same kind of steak and chicken tastes same or better at lower priced restaurants we have eaten at. The Mescato was excellent, my steak was good, but not great. My hubby had the stuffed chicken, it looked like chicken I bake at home, though the flavor was good, still, wasn't great for the amount of money we spent. Would recommend the restaurant, but for a special occasion only due to the ambiance it provides, but Texas Roadhouse and Saltgrass restaurants are equivalent quality with a much more affordable bill.

    We arrived 2 hrs prior to the reservation and was immediately kindly seated in a nice large booth. After 5 min in the booth, It became obvious why the booth was vacant. The group behind us were so loud, it was a nusance. We had to increase our volume to hear each speak. Apparently, group dining is best during that time. I ordered the Ribeye from the Restaurant Week menu. I was slightly disappointed with the preparation. Requested Medium cooked with crab cake topping and received medium well steak. Regretted not returning the steak because part ways into it, there was more fat than meat. That said, more than 1/2 the steak went uneaten. Nonetheless, the Ceasar salad and symphony dessert was highly pleasing paired with the Red wine

    An outstanding dining experience. Service was attentive but not hovering and the meal was perfectly cooked and presented. Very pricey but worth every penny. The correct dress code is "country-club" casual for early evening on a Sunday to dressy - and at these prices should be - very inappropriately dressed diners were seated.

    This was our first time eating at this particular steakhouse, and we have a new found appreciation for Ruth Chris' competitors. We had a reservation, and still had to wait for ten minutes to be seated for some unknown reason. The restaurant wasn't busy, maybe five other tables were occupied. Service was extremely slow,even with a duo service "team", and off peak traffic. Just seemed like it was understaffed, with servers setting tables, clearing tables, etc. The food was mediocre and relatively bland. Crab cake was "fishy" and didn't seem fresh; likewise, the sides tasted like they can out a can. The environment was nice and RC is rather quite place to eat. However, this was one dinning "experience" we are glad is over.

  • POOR SERVICE
    foodcritic
    Dined on 8/8/2014
    Waitress was not knowledgeable on menu items, and went as far as insulting the table stating that we did not know what cocktail sauce is nor used for. The waitress, Terri, was not attentive to our table of three, and focused her attention solely on the table besides us. This led me to believe that Terri was a poor waitress to my table by choice, not that this was her first day on the job, or having an off moment...not by far. The one thing that differentiated my table from the next table is my race. The poor service began from the moment we were seated, as if she presumed she would not get a tip because we are African American. This is a common presumption. She was short, condescending, and simply rude.

    We recently went to Ruth's Chris as part of Houston Restaurant Weeks. Although, we ordered from the special menu, the food appeared to be the normal, dinner size portions. Everything was delicious and the steaks were perfectly prepared. The service was outstanding too. We went with another couple that we had not seen for a while and had a lot of catching up to do. Our server perfectly judged the timing between leaving us alone and making sure we had everything we needed. The restaurant atmosphere is lovely and sophisticated. All of us were happy that we decided to have our dinner here.
