    We love going to Ruth Chris but this location was a first visit. The steak was not cooked as order and had to be sent back. What was odd was that the waitress didnt ask to cut into meat before she walked off. Glasses were never refilled. It was ok but nothing compared to our expectations with other Ruth Chris locations.

    I had really high expectations of this place since it’s one of my sons favorite places to come for his birthday. It was a first time for most our party and most likely the last. The food was okay, not great quality, whatever everyone asked for on how they wanted their steak cook, got it cooked a step or two above that. A few guest of ours ordered medium rare cooked and both steaks came out passed well done, very dry and when we complained to the horrible manager on duty, he looked at it and said well it’s medium well that’s close enough….not once offered to make it right but insisted it wasn’t as big of a deal as we were making it AND Still added it to the tab until we complained once again that it be removed. Our waitress took FOREVER to bring drinks, would go MIA for 20-30min at a time, that’s also a huge red flag being that I’ve been to many steak houses in Austin and I’ve NEVER experienced such horrible service. For what you pay there the service should definitely be top tier. Lastly, do not valet. We waited an additional 45 min for our car and were handed someone else’s keys twice before we finally got our own vehicle and keys. If you’re wanting a great quality steak and 5 star service, go a couple of blocks over to Bobs Steak & chop I promise you won’t be disappointed!

    This was the perfect date spot! The ambiance was dim lit and romantic with a candle on the table. The staff was so friendly and accommodating to it being our first time there. Everything tasted so good! My boyfriend got the filet & loner tail which was cooked perfectly, it was so tasty! And the goat cheese artichoke dip- oh my… that was the best dip I’ve ever eaten! We are definitely coming back and recommending this place to all our friends for a romantic date night!

    Friendly staff. We had an early reservation so we were seated right away. Bread and butter was brought to our table almost immediately. Bread was chewy but tasty. We ordered New York strips medium rate as usual. They were good but more medium than we expected. Medium-rare seems to be difficult to achieve nowadays, et tu Ruth’s Chris?

    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.
