Diner Reviews
  • "Our first visit to the new location was successful! This space is more modern, brighter than the Sunset Station locale but it is missing some of the warmth of the old restaurant. The food was wonderful! A real treat! On a Thursday night we had outstanding service and had a relaxing dinner. I look forward to visiting when the weather is more welcoming and to sit outside along the river extension."

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed Ruth's Chris. The starter salad was wonderfully put together, and served quickly. Once the steak came, it was cooked to perfection served on a searing-hot plate which kept it hot to the very end. The mashed potatoes were perfectly whipped, and the Key Lime pie was simply wonderful. Overall, the service was excellent and the wine topped off a great meal. The only downside, if there was to be one, was the slightly loud noise level, largely driven by the jazz ensemble playing in the bar area that bled into the main dining room. Overall, a great experience!"

  • "Thanks to Yelp, I had two $35 gift certificates, and what better time to use them than for our wedding anniversary/my birthday dinner. Seating was immediate upon our arrival (we were early!) and we were both treated to an unforgettable dinner and celebration! Patrick, our waiter, was prompt, delivered all courses with quickness and attention to detail, and an unexpected surprise: table decorations with rose petals and birthday favors! Our meal was exactly as advertised: the steaks came out sizzling and all of our items were absolutely delicious (my wife thought the creamed spinich was a bit flat, but I respectfully disagree...the cream was perfect, and the spinach danced on my palate). We both really enjoyed the meal and will return."

  • "After a disappointing filet and prime rib the night before at famed Boudro's, we were very appreciative of our perfectly prepared steaks at Ruth's Chris. Be aware kitchen closes promptly at 10pm. We arrived at 9:40 for dinner but, were unable to get pepper sauce after our steaks arrived because the kitchen had already closed. Sides, creme brûlée, cocktails, and our table service all top notch as well. Solid choice. Acenar and Ruth's Chris were our best meals on the Riverwalk."

  • "Went out for a special night with my sister and niece. Good food on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. We sat outside and the fans cooled the patio perfectly. The only distraction was the rude and impatient waiter."

  • "We had an amazing time at this restaurant. The hostesses were professional, our waiter Luis was very professional and prompt. My steak was cooked to perfection and my wifes stuffed chicken done nicely. It was our anniversary dinner so they gave us the complimentary anniversary dessert. Overall, we have a great dinner service, I would recommend this restaurant to any of my family or friends."

  • "Food was excellent, steak cooked to perfection. My scallops were fabulous, a little salty for me...so I'll ask for "light seasoning" next time. And there will be a next time...very soon!!! It was our anniversary and they added a couple of special little touches, like sprinkles on the table and beautifully depicted dessert...we were very pleased!! Everyone was very professional and very friendly!"

  • "We were staying at the Grand Hyatt for a business event and it happened to be our 29th Wedding Anniversary. We chose to have dinner there instead of the Chart House (which had poor reviews) and we were not disappointed. I have to mention that we skipped the Convention Center "Egg Soup" Buffet and headed straight down the Ruth's for the Omelette Station. It was fabulous!!! If we ever return to San Antonio we will definitely eat here again. Hopefully it will not be in the Summer and we can enjoy the patio and live music on Saturday Nights. Manager mary McNeel is the best, and really made us feel welcome in a strange state."

  • "First of all the filet was the best steak I have EVER!! Nothing compares to y'all's good it is so delicious! The service was also great the waiters were on too of their game making sure we had refills and everything was fine! Best dining I have ever experienced!!"

  • "The old location at Sunset Station is so much better. The current location is loud, the service was just okay and a bit lacking. The experience was not up to the Ruth's Chris standard which is unfortunate. There are better choices in downtown San Antonio."

  • "There were 7 in our party. 3 of them had the chicken which was amazing. The other 4 ordered steak. Not one persons was cooked right. Husband actually sent his back when it came back it was so charred on top it looked burnt ate it anyway because he was hungry. Had broccoli and au gratin potatoes as sides. The broccoli had not been washed. It felt like there were little rocks in it. The potatoes were very undercooked. The chef was informed neither he NOR did the manager come out and speak to us. We have visited another Ruth Chris location which was amazing. This one we will never return."

  • " Celebrating our 28th and have celebrated many others with y'all in Baton Rouge but sadly this was not a good experience. First off there was a very loud band in an adjacent room having an record kickoff and they performed and were very loud even with the doors closed and not in the same room. My T-bone steak was ordered at the temp attire of medium rare but came out medium to medium well, I ate it due to my guests steaks were fine but they insisted on waiting And I wasn't going to let that happen and ruin their meal also. Lastly it ,took twenty minutes before our waiter checked to see if we were done and needed to close out the bill but it then took 40 minutes due to run the ticket because your system went down and we had a gift card."

  • "My wife made the reservation for Father's Day, we were in the "main dining room" with only three or four tables in use. The service was slow like half did not show up for work. My Prime Rib (they only have it twice a year) was cool and there was a problem with switching vegetables between Father's Day entree's."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Loud people next table and around the restaurant can make conversation a little difficult if you are out on a date, too much light for a romantic dinner, portions were too small for the price tag but the food was delicious and the wine was excelent."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Food was ok but everything is just subpar and proceed high for no reason. I can go to Longhorn steakhouse and get an even better steak for half the price. Sorry but consumers are very knowledgeable nowadays, and seems Ruth Chris needs to step up there game. By the way, there were no reservations available but only one. Yet the whole time we were there was do many empty tables it was unreal. Give it of twenty tables were being used, yet supposedly the restaurant was overbooked according to there reservation system. Fail."

  • "We have eaten at Ruth Cris all over the country and sadly this location didn't meet the standard we have come to expect from this chain. From the crab cakes to the steak fries every dish just didn't measure up. Maybe just an off night."

  • "Ruth's Chris has never dissapointed. This vist was no exception. My wife, who eats organic, was able to eat her meal without a reaction. Our waiter was extraordinarily helpful and friendly. He even recommended other local restaurants that may offer organic food. "

  • "I took my wife here for her birthday and we had an amazing time. The food was great and the staff is outstanding. The manager goes around and make sure that everyone is doing great. She also gave my wife a really nice birthday dessert which was an amazing gesture. "

  • "Went to the River Walk Ruth Chris , and it was bad. Seated quickly, but went down hill after that. Ran out of bread, drinks were slow in coming, ordered, salad arrived, was ok. 25 minutes later our steaks arrived, ordered both medium, 1 was medium and Mom's was well done. Ate the steaks and sides, water was refilled but that's about it. Dinner plates picked up, more water, waited 25 minutes before desert arrived. After the 2 gallons of water that was offered there was no room for desert so we took it home. We sat inside, but the outside doors were opened to the river and room was full of flies and knat's. I wont be returning to this location.."

  • "We visited Ruth Chris on Saturday the 3rd. The drinks were fabulous. But, the food was outstanding. The bone-in rib eye was cooked to perfection and very flavorful. My wife enjoyed a sea bass that was as she described it "out of this world".... the best she has had in San Antonio. Assistant Manager visited our table occasionally to check on the service and dinner. She was very friendly. Service was impeccable. The sides and desserts were nicely presented and tasty. I would recommend Ruth Chris to every one looking to enjoy a great meal in a vibrant yet tasteful atmosphere."

  • "Overall experience was good. The place is great looking and has both inside and by the river walk dining. The food was good overall. Good selection in the menu. The wait for our food however was too long. "

  • "Our meal was awesome. The blueberry mojito was a treat. The only negative I can comment on was having a table in a side dining room that was closed off from the rest of the restaurant. There was no view of anything except four walls. We didn't let that destroy our evening as we had plenty of conversation and a great time. "

  • "We had a reservation for 8:00 Easter morning. I thought there would be more of an effort made for an Easter brunch. It is a moderate breakfast buffet. I will not be back. In fact, the breakfast was so disappointing, I will not be back for lunch or dinner. Our service was good, it was the food that was lacking. It was a dull, ordinary breakfast buffet with very little in terms of variety. It might be great for lunch or dinner, but in terms of a breakfast buffet, it is just your average breakfast buffet and menu. "

  • "We were only1 of a few couples dining at the time, but the service was still slow. Additionally, I requested a beer with my steak, but the waitress didnt bring the beer until I was 1/2 done with my steak."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The food was good. However, the cocktails were very poorly done. serving cocktails with small cubes of ice serves only to water down the drink and probably saves on the amount of ingredients needed to fill the glass. With all of the good bartenders around San Antonio, suggest bringing one in as a consultant and elevate the cocktails to the same level of the food. "

  • "There were five of us for lunch and all of us enjoyed the meal very much. I had a wedge salad to start, which was only fair, it did not have enough bacon or blue cheese on it for my taste (this is why only a 4 star rating). However, my filet was outstanding. Very good flavor and tender. I also had potato wedges which were very good. The service was attentive and polite. The food was pricey, but I would recommend for business lunch/dinner and special occasions (date night)."

  • "This is our third or 4th time to try a Ruth Chris Steakhouse and we will not be back. It was good, but for what you pay, it was not great. This one was located inside our hotel and next to the convention center that we had meetings at, so it was easy to get a late bite to eat. I had hoped for better, but it was just good."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "For 12 years we have been going to Ruth's for our anniversary. We have gone to the Sunset Station and commander locations. This is very different. Much more open and loud not really suitable for a private dinner for two. They don't do our favorite dessert, Bananas Foster, a Ruth's classic, due to restrictions. It was disappointing."
