Diner Reviews
  • "We had an excellent dinner and service at Ruth's Chris Steak House in San Antonio's downtown. The free valet parking was appreciated. I would recommend RCSH to anyone interested in great steaks and seafood as well as personable, knowledgable and attentive wait staff."

  • " 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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "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 had a delightful waiter - he worded his requests expertly and injected himself into serving our meal at just the right time. I can't recall his name but his training was excellent and his attitude even better."

  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "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. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Nice place, definitely will go back. The food was delicious with very large portions. Very good time."

  • "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)."

  • "Best steak I have ever eaten and the service was fantastic! Thanks Ruth Chris..."

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "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
  • "The filet was as good as you will get with very few exceptions, my wife was very pleased with the Sea Bass and they shelled my daughters lobster for her, not inexpensive but well worth the expense for the quality of the food and the attentive service. As Native Texans we can't, in good conscience, recommend anyone eating Tex-Mex on the Riverwalk but Ruths Chris has the same high standards on the Riverwalk as they do in areas where they don't rely so heavily on tourists."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "It was a good experience with good service. The ambience wasn't like the other Rut's we have been to but was still good. The views were confined to the bar area and no booths. We were first put in a corner where it was very confining but asked to be moved and we were so that was good. Given the empty table we were surprised that we were put there at all."

  • "I had the pleasure of dining at Ruth's Chris Steak House several times during my stay at the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio. Every dining experience was outstanding. The food and service was excellent."

  • "Best steak I've ever had! Had dinner with my wife at Ruth Chris for our 1 year anniversary and Ruth didn't disappoint!! The 500° plate made all the difference. Each and every bite was like it was right off the grill! Our waiter was also excellent and made sure to let us enjoy our special evening, rather than try to make pointless small talk. If I were rich I'd eat there every night!"

  • "One of this popular chains largest locations proves that too much produces too little. The wait staff tried it's best,but was over burdened, and not attentive, Was looking forward to a Veal Chop ,but disappointed that it came out under cooked and tough resulting in a change in dinner entree to a Filet. The rest of my friends and my BW enjoyed their dinners. We frequent this chain in most cities we travel too and chalk up this experience to typical Saturday night dining. Busy night, too busy for us."

  • "I have to Ruth Chris in several locations and have always been very pleased. Took my son on his first experience there and we're very disappointed . Steak was tough and grissly and sides were cold, service was really spotty we waited for everything from water to the check. We know good beef as Nebraska cattle feeders and this was a real let down."

  • "The food at Ruth's Chris was wonderful, especially the appetizers such as the grilled scallops, the plump shrimp cocktail, and the Ahi Tuna. We even shared a petit filet as an appetizer. BUT...watch out for the scam with your drinks. We were charged an extra $2 to have scotch with NO ice, an extra $2 to have our martini straight up (no ice) and an extra $1 for olives in the martini. This was not listed in the menu at all as the manager (who never came to our table) admitted. He said we get more liquor when there's no ice, but we never asked for more liquor - just no ice. The extras added 33% to the martinis - WATCH OUT!"

  • "We had to use a credit card to reserve the table in case we decided to cancel so they could charge us $25 for the inconvenience. It was February 13 so no matter what, if we cancelled our reservation, we were paying $25 for our table. We arrived early for our reservation on Valentine's Day because we were super excited to try something new. (This was our first dining experience at Ruth Chris's) We were seated right away and began to notice all of the empty tables in the restaraunt. Turns out, they only had one menu featuring a 4 course dinner for $99 per person! Hence, the empty tables... The food was mediocre but the service was outstanding. (My steak tasted like char) We will not eat at Ruth Chris's ever again, so sad..."

  • "Luckily they gave us their very nice private room for our team. Salad was great, Dinner was excellent, would have like to see a couple choices on the dessert for their combo specials. The private room exceeded our expectations, a quiet and elegant atmosphere to dine with a group of good people. Requested a change from 5 to 6 people, which OpenTable confirmed, but seems the restaurant didn’t get the update. Luckily it wasn’t too busy at the time, and they were extremely accommodating. Our waiter was awesome, even took a couple pictures for our group! Would recommend for a special Dinner to anyone."
