    Service was less than adequate. Lobster bisque was watery and tasteless. The lobster Mac and cheese was shameful. It tasted very fishy. The ribeye and filet did not disappoint, but the taste of the steak alone did not make up for the other shortcomings. The last Ruth’s Chris we visited was in San Antonio. This Austin location pales in comparison.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants. It is always my "go-to" for celebratory meals & has been for 20 years. But for the second consecutive trip my "medium" filet has been horribly overcooked. More like medium-well to well done. I would have sent it back, but it took forever to get in the first place so I choked it down. The waiter was very nice, but the restaurant is understaffed. Given the state of the economy & the problem of all companies trying to find help, I definitely have tried to extend grace. But this is getting old. Plus, despite telling the restaurant when I made the reservation that my wife had a dairy allergy & again when we met our waiter, they proceeded to bring the chopped salad with blue cheese and a filet drowning in butter.

    We are the biggest Ruth’s Chris fans. Dating back to when my husband worked there in college, Baton Rouge, to very family birthday at RC’s. The Austin location is beautiful but the food has just lost its sizzle. A couple items were on the cold side, we asked for steaks to be done “Pittsburgh” style and the weren’t. The server was sweet but forgetful. Barely anyone was there so they put all of the populated tables close together and we had to whisper to have conversations without disrupting our neighbors. And then our bill was close to 700$, including tip, and we only had a cheaper level bottle of wine… it just wasn’t a 700$ (4 people) experience at all. And we are very attached to Ruth’s Chris, so I hope they can bring it back to level.

    We had made a dinner reservation for 4 adults on Father’s Day, a tradition to go to Ruth’s Chris each year and for birthday as well. We were taken to the back of the restaurant, where large parties and families with children are seated. Table right next to us was a family with 3 children between 5 and 8! I told our hostess that I would rather have another table in the main room, where multiple tables were available (8 pm and more than likely available). We were told to wait and see. The manager told us HE WILL DO US A FAVOR and give us a table for 6 instead, and we were promptly pointed to a table by the bar; even noisier! We decided to leave. I can expect that elsewhere but not here at Ruth’s. A steak house is not a rarity in Austin. There are many options. Not going back to Ruth’s. I did not enjoy the smirk on the hostess and the manager’s face either.

    Our table was ready 30min ahead of the reservation time. We were greeted upon arrival. Our server was very nice and polite. The food was good. I had the salmon and shrimp which wasn’t my favorite but it was okay. The filet steak was Delicious and tender!! Appetizers we had were the crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms both sooo good! Would definitely come back.

    Do not go here. I ordered a medium rare ribeye. It came out gray and pink. I had to send the steak back. I should have sent the second steak back too. It was also pink with a slight bit of red in the thickest part. I guess that’s an improvement…going from an F to a D- is technically an improvement. I ate the second over cooked $80 ribeye because I was in a rush to make an after dinner appointment. I was not going to let Ruth’s Chris’s incompetence make me late by waiting for a THIRD steak. This was the absolute worse fine dinning experience I’ve ever had. Go to Bob’s Chophouse, go to Eddie V’s, or go to Perry’s. As I said, do not go here!

    Adriana took care of me and my partner for dinner. It was his birthday so she treated him with a vanilla cheesecake which was the best I've ever had. I order the Filet (medium) which was sort of dry so I asked for extra butter on the side. My partner order the T-Bone (medium well) and it was delicious. Just enough flavor and juice. It was so big so Adriana boxed it to go along with our sides creamed spinach and mashed potatoes. We order two cocktails which were tasty. I recommend it.

    I hate writing this review because I’ve always loved going to this restaurant. Some how the food fell short of amazing last night. We dined last night for a celebratory graduation dinner for my son and we were both disappointed with the food. It was not tasty and I’m hoping this was just a hit or miss. Both my and my son’s meal had no flavor and zero taste. My wedge salad tasted old like it has been sitting out all day. Apologies but we regretted not going to Perry’s a quick walk away from Ruth Chris. Other than that the service and ambiance was very good!

    We have not been here for a while and now I remember why. Steak was over done and waiter was at a very slow pace and constantly forgetting requests. For a $700 meal I expected more and didn’t get it. Won’t be back anytime soon. There are too many better steakhouses in Austin to spend that money at.

    We went for Mother's Day for our second visit in six month, after a negative dining experience previously,We had requested they seat our party of 4 in the main dining room when booking the reservation. The hostess seated our party in a back banquet room though the main dining area was less than 1/3 full. Our table was seated adjacent to stacked boxes, old write/wipe boards, empty cardboard with three other tables in this back room.Since not in main dining area, waitstaff congregated throughout our meal behind a column in the room to gossip and complain (yes, we overheard them) about customers and management throughout our meal. Our waitress was friendly but service was well below par for "fine dining". two in our group order lobster bisque as a starter that was bland, barely warm and tasted only of cream.Three of ordered steaks and one ordered the "special" of garlic crusted sea bass. The entrees were all hot and tasty but sides were barely warm and not flavorful.I ordered a loaded baked potato that arrived dry with only a few random bacon bits on it.I asked the waitress to please bring me the condiments I ordered but five minutes later she only brought me a small bit of grated cheese.I again asked for sour cream and butter. It arrived after another five minutes but by then, my potato was cold.Post-meal we ordered coffee.When the coffee arrived, we were not given any spoons or stirrers to stir the cream/sweeteners into our coffee.We again asked the waitress for spoons which arrived five minutes later to stir our now cold coffee.The waitress directed me to "stand up your bill when you have provided payment as a flag so I know to top by" as she dropped off the spoons.The total bill with three alcoholic drinks and no dessert was over $450 for what seemed like haphazard, poor service, seated next to cardboard with over-priced luke warm food.At this price point with all the great spots to eat in ATX, pick somewhere other than Ruth's Chris for "fine dining".Not here.

    The food is good but with respect to the price, it’s quite low C/P value and the waitress is kind of no patience to introduce us what they offered for Mother’s Day special. During the dining, the waitress never come to the table and check if we need more water or something.

    Have been to Ruth's Chris for years. My worse experience yet. The first booth they set us in had a huge tear in the seat. How could that go unnoticed and in a virtually empty restaurant, why would that be the place to sit us? The place seems so dated, dark and dull. Steak was "greasy" is my best description. I'm used to the butter but this was overkill. Most importantly, it was just not a great piece of meat. RC has the reputation for the beautiful slab of filet that they deliver, this wasn't the case. This experience has inspired me to pass on RC in the future and try other steakhouses.
