Steakhouse
Ruth's Chris Steak House at Concord Plaza, San Antonio opened in 1993.
At Ruth's Chris, your steak is carefully selected from the finest USDA Prime beef available. It is aged to perfection and cut by hand at the restaurant. Then, your steak is broiled - to your exact order - at a searing 1800 degrees Fahrenheit to lock in the corn-fed flavor and natural juices. It's served hot and sizzling. In fact, you can actually hear your steak sizzling from across the room.
Private dining rooms available for groups of 10-100.

The food and the service were excellent. However, through no fault of the restaurant, the noise level was too loud. We were seated by a group of gentlemen who didn't mind sharing all of their stories with everyone within earshot. In hindsight we should have asked to be seated at another table, even if we had to wait a little longer. Our waiter realized the situation and sent house home with dessert on the house.

I have been going to Ruth's Chris for over 20 years, and I must say this last trip may be my last. Let me start with the bar. We arrived early so we could go to the bar and have a cocktail. I had a vodka soda and my wife had a cosmopolitan. For some reason my drink didn't taste right and my wifes drink was too sweet. The bartender over heard her say it was too sweet and he insisted on remaking it. The re-make was perfect and overall the bar service was outstanding.

After we were seated at our table with a couple of exceptions, the food was outstanding. It was the service that was not up to par for a restaurant of this quality.
My wife and I both ordered the 8 oz. filet, shared a baked potato, and had the brussel sprouts. We also added a salad. Overall the food was very good with the exception of my wife's steak. She likes a little pink in her steak, but there was none. We chose not to send it back for two reasons. 1) We didn't want to wait for it to be re-done and 2) our waiter never checked to see if our food came out ok.

Without going into a lot of detail the service was just plain slow. After we had dessert we finally had to ask the waiter to get our final bill. When I spend over $200 bucks for dinner, I don't have a lot of tolerance for mediocre service.
My other complaint is the way the check is finalized. They bring a credit card machine to you table and when you get ready to tip, the lowest choice you have is 18%. I didn't see the option of leaving a tip that I felt was consistent with the service.
My final issue is that the restaurant was just too loud. If I wanted slow service and a loud atmosphere I would have went to Longhorn for a whole lot less money.

The food was ok but not spectacular. We had to wait a bit for our food, then after we ate, we had to wait almost 30 mins for the check. When we went to valet parking for our car, the lady brought us someone else's car.

With all the hype around Ruth Chris being such an a amazing steakhouse I went into the restaurant expecting the best. The ambiance was quite loud and not enjoyable for me or my boyfriend though the serving staff were quite polite and accommodating. I ordered the calimari, a glass of wine, Brussels sprouts and a fillet. The calimari was sub par, being fried to what was probably perfection then smothered in a quite distasteful Asian sauce which made the battered delicacies a pile of soggy mess. My wine was fantastic! I figured they couldn’t mess that up. Brussels sprouts were dry and not well seasoned. I have had better for half of the price. The steak was the make it or break it portion to me. I have had many steaks and found some outstanding steaks worth their every penny. I expect that if I’m buying a $50+ steak then it had better be an absolute delicacy. I know Ruth Chris prides themselves on serving steak on a hot plate I found that I did not enjoy my black and blue steak that I ordered being cooked to a medium rare while slicing it into bite size pieces. I had to move my steak to a cool plate so that I could eat my steak to the fashion that I ordered my steak. The flavor felt like a suppressed orchestra that wanted to play at full volume but was stifled in butter and seasonings. Such a beautiful cut of meat was destroyed. Overall I was quite disappointed in my experience. I will not be spending those prices for that quality of food when I can go to any other steak house and get sub par quality at a more affordable price. At the end of the night I didn’t even want to venture to get dessert secondary to my experience so far, so I opted to get bluebell on the way home.

Food serice was Great I would have given it 5 Star but when I went to pay my check Ruith's Chris rrequires there customers to use a payment system at the Table. I had a gift card the waiter frist had to go off I am not sure where to use the gift card. When he came back to the table he a machine for me to pay my balance. When I went to use it it had time out. The waiter tried again it fail. It was a bad experence this type of paying for my check should be optional not a mandate to the customer. It defeltly lowers there quatily of service. I will not return unlerss they change it.

The chopped salad was not chopped finely enough. The waiter took our remaining bread away and never brought it back. The lighting in the ladies room is the worst I’ve seen. The noise level made it difficult to hear each other.

This was supposed to be a wonderful first time experience for my World (I had been previously and was not satisfied with the overall experience for the price I'd paid but reserved my opinion to allow him to formulate his own perspective), but instead it turned out to be yet again a very frustrating and disappointing night. The food was not nearly as good as expected, it took a considerable amount of time to locate our waiter, and it was a little more noisy then we would have liked. I believe the only memorable part of the night was the lady conducting valet...... she was phenomenal!! I don't believe we will return to this establishment.

I expected more...We were a party of 6 celebrating a coworkers birthday. Frank was our waiter. Some of started with the Lobster Bisque. It was bad. Lukewarm, watered down, it tasted old and smokey. The bisque at Whole Foods is waaay better. Big letdown. One of our guests returned hers, I gave mine away. Two calamari appetizers, also a letdown. Chewy and soaked in some Asian type of sweet and sour sauce. Something I would have expected from P.F. Chang's. On to the steaks. 3 of us tried the Surf & Turf with 2 lobster tails. The steak was good nothing spectacular. The lobster tails were overcooked and chewy also. My son had the 40oz steak for two. His was seasoned and tender. The sides were meh.. They did bring my coworker a cute little dessert sampler. All in all we dropped about a little under 6 bills and I wasn't impressed. We could have had better somewhere else. I was a little embarrassed because I suggested it and they let me down.

I have frequented this restaurant before and had good experience however this time it was a poor one. Our waiter was not attentive nor engaging. My husbands fillet looked practically boiled- did not have any sear marks on. Flavor of fillet just okay. Really missed the mark all around this time.

The food was fabulous. However, the restaurant was extremely crowded and loud. We had to wait for a table despite having reservations. The service was not great due to the volume of people. We had to wait to order drinks and then again for food - wait much longer than normal. We were never asked if we wanted another drink. After the appetizer our little plates were taken and never replaced which was a problem as the steak plates were small to also put our sides. It was a birthday celebration and it didn't feel as we were special. Our table was in a back corner and we felt forgotten. The waiter did bring each of us a dessert - not just the birthday boy which was appreciated but give the cost of the meal the service should have been better. Obviously they need more staff so each waiter has fewer tables to manage.

The food was great, except for the cocktails and desserts. Very expensive lunch $200 as we ordered off the menu because the restaurant week menu was too limited for us. The service was not good. We arrived for a late lunch and the restaurant was clearing and not too busy. Unfortunately our server was not competent that day. Our server forgot to put our drink orders in as well as our food. He had to return to check our food order after we finally got our cocktails which was at least 15 to 20 minutes. He did apologize and didn’t charge us for the drinks. However, the Old Fashions weren’t made correctly and didn’t taste good. Unfortunately we had to talk to the server who brought out some cherry juice and added it to our drinks. That helped but the bartender just didn’t mix it correctly or didn’t add the correct proportions. We should have returned the drinks and ordered wine. The rib-eye steaks and side dishes (mushrooms and brussel sprouts and bread) were delicious! The bread pudding was ok. The chocolate sin cake was not cake like at all actually more like a tort and chocolate chunk. We recommend drinking wine and eating their steaks. Thank you

My wife and I have been to Ruth's Chris a few times for special occasions, I'm not surprised it's expensive but sure wish it wasn't. The food is excellent as is the service. We rarely dress up and go to nice places and we wish this place would enforce the dress code. When I'm paying over $200 for a meal for 2 people, I don't want to see other customers in muddy boots, jeans and a work shirt which I saw on our last visit. I'm working class also, but if I can make the effort to clean up and dress up, so can others.

I was under the impression that this was the place to come for the best steak ever! The service was fine but when I got my T-bone it was mostly gristle. I couldn’t cut most of it with my knife. I ended up taking it home and fed it to my very appreciative Yellow Lab. My wife said that even her portobello mushrooms were greasy. I’m not much for complaining but I was not impressed, especially for the price. We went home after dinner and ate again that night.
