  • Best steak in Houston
    GallopingGourmandVIP
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    Without question, this is our favorite steakhouse in Houston. Not only do we get the table we request, but we have virtually no wait for a table. The tables are spaced far enough apart that you're not part of the conversation at the next table, and you don't have to yell to be heard at your own table. But the food is the big draw--steaks that are perfectly done and rely on their own flavor (not overseasoned). My wife's ribeye had very little visible fat on it, and my 14-oz strip sirloin was incredible! Sides are as good as you'll find anywhere, especially the giant onion rings. Great wine selections, even by the glass. Beautiful surroundings make this a near-perfect experience.

    Husband and I spend every major occasion celebrating at Houston's high end steakhouses. Ruth's Chris can not compare to Pappas Bros. but it is better than Del Frisco. Husband loved his ribeye; it reheated well also, and my stuffed chicken breast was to die for. The crab cake was decent, but the lobster Mac and cheese/creamed spinach need lots of work...start with Salt. The new restaurant is very nice compared to the Richmond location, and the waiter was gracious but not overbearing. The bar scene was on and popping; very intergenerational crowd. Definitely a place for the girls to hang! Overall is was good, but we desire great for that price...Pappas here we come!!!

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!

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.

    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.
