    Had a fantastic dinner here. It was the first night of my honeymoon with my new wife and the service and hospitality was amazing. They made the evening so very special and helped kick our honeymoon off right. Ordered our steak medium rare and it came out medium but that wasn’t an issue plus the flavor was great. Highly recommend!

    This was A special night (Valentine) it looked like we was sitting in a hall or a makeshift area not designed for dining. A cubby hole. No music no art work. Three tables close together and i could hear everything the next table said as if they were at the same table. No privacy at all. Typically very good but this killed what was supposed to be a romantic night. Keep in mind this reservation was set at least a month out. But felt like they overbooked and threw us anywhere they could get! That was my last visit!

    Everything was great except for the steak. We ordered a ribeye but what came was more like a NY strip - and not a very memorable one at that.

    First time ever dining at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the restaurant and was told that they serve some of the best steaks in Austin. The wait service was alright. Waiter didn’t check on us much after food was delivered and my drink went empty for the majority of the meal. After he came back to clear the empty plates, that’s when I was offered another drink—after my meal was done. Would have liked to have my beverage to sip on while I eat. The food was superb. Steak was a little undercooked to my liking but I still ate it and it was very tender and tasty. I thought the ambiance and decor needs to be updated. Seemed old and outdated and wasn’t as nice as some of the other fine dining steak houses I’ve been to. Overall, it was a good experience. I would probably go back to dine there again.

    Food was bland, I don’t know how you charge 100’s of dollars for food without flavor. Steaks were cooked perfectly but had zero flavor. Sides didn’t impress either. Dessert was the only thing worth note. They were pretty good. Won’t be back

    There was a bad spot in the baked potato. The steaks were not their usual high quality. For one, they were over-seasoned. Normally, the food is fabulous. Last night, it was disappointing. Even so, we'll give it one more chance.

    I ate at the downtown Austin location and the food and service were phenomenal as always. It was my birthday and the staff went out of their way to decorate my table before I arrived. Mike was extremely attentive, polite, and he gave me the birthday hookup (a complimentary creme brûlée and dessert coffee). I cannot say enough nice things about this location. Highly recommend the lobster mac and cheese as well as the pomegranate martinis! *chef's kiss*

    Ruth’s Chris was amazing! The food, service and the vibes were immaculate. I highly recommend the Crab Cakes and the Stuffed Mushrooms for appetizers. Mike was an excellent server, he was very authentic and made us feel comfortable for being our first time there. Thank you for an amazing night for my wife’s Birthday! We will definitely be going back.

    8.15 pm reservation on a Sunday. I told the male employee at the hostess stand it was just me for dinner but a friend was joining me later. My friend arrived at 9.06 pm and was not even allowed in. The male employee from hostess stand was sitting in the bar area chatting up females the whole time. Did not tend to customers or do any useful work. Did not inform me at the beginning that my friend would not be allowed in after 9 pm. I left most of my dinner uneaten and had to pay the check and leave. Had I been informed I would have eaten elsewhere.

    Ruth's Chris is ok, but there are other steakhouses in Austin that are superior. I ordered a Ribeye and the cut was very good, however the Oscar add-on was a laugh ... it appeared like a dollop of material scooped out of a bucket and plopped on top of the steak. It left much to be desired. Other plates around the table had similar experiences. Service was excellent - the waiter was attentive and knew how to pace a meal.

    Chose the Prixe Fix Dinner for Anniversary Celebration. The food definitely did not reflect flavors of traditional New Orleans style foods. The steak was cooked to perfection, the rose's on table were cute, service was goo, and dessert had a hair on the plate under my cheesecake. The atmosphere was very quiet and the drink menu wasn't too bad.

    Food was just ok, bbq shrimp had good flavor but the shrimp were small and did not seem very fresh. Steak was overdone and on the fatty side. Flavor of the steak was mediocre and was chewy. Potatoes and cream spinach was good. Although we barely had any room for the sides as we were given tiny side plates for everything a d had nowhere to put the empty lobster shell. Service was slow to say the least. Our waitress tried her best but had five tables and was the only server working. The manager loafed around and never offered to help her at all. We waited for 20min to get a bottle of wine and sat with empty glasses that entire time. Nobody filled our water glasses one time during the meal and had to ask the bus boy to take our empty plates. The waiter was good and did her best with little to no help from her team. Disappointing experience for a $360 meal for two.

    Server was good. Just received constant texts if we were going to use the reservation. We checked in and they acknowledged our open table reservation. Then received multiple texts about if we were going to show up. And then another text saying they canceled the reservation. We had a nice experience- just a bit disappointed on the constant texts. It comes across that they don’t want to credit our account the 100 points and/or the hostess doesn’t care.
