Well we love Ruth Chris but this time it was a different experience. although our waiter was a nice guy he was very sick and coughing during our order taking . I wanted to leave because I didn’t want anyone to get sick but just couldn’t with such a large birthday celebration . Needless to say I now have the cold virus !! The manager should have seen his employee was ill and sent him home . We were celebrating a birthday and it was not acknowledged which was disappointing to say the least . So not a good review by us .

Food was great and service spot on. Ruth Chris rarely gets it wrong. The manager (wish I knew his name) was awesome with a great sense of humor. Our waitress was super friendly as well.

I've been to one other Ruth's in Charlotte, NC. I had high expectations and I was NOT disappointed. The service was spot on. There was no waiting but, we were not rushed. The manager and staff helped my plan a great evening for a late Valentine's dinner. They received flowers for me and had them on the table when I arrived. They also made a great dessert and decorated the table with confetti hearts. I most definitely would recommend dining at the Austin location.

Service was excellent and very accommodating. Food was well prepared and steaks were cooked to perfection, despite the hot plate on which they arrived! Wine and cocktails were perfect as well.

Our first time at this Ruth's location although we have been to many in other cities. Quiet ambiance makes it a return restaurant for us in the future along with our friends.

The service was good. Think the person who sat us could be better dressed and groomed, bartender was awesome. Food was great but overall worth $300...?

Like the new renovations, especially in the bar/lounge. The restaurant is not too big, it is small enough to feel intimate and allow for a nice conversation. The steaks are always among Austin's best. Service is consistently good. Marco was excellent.

Upon seating us they did not offer us dark napkins and we both had dark pants on. When placing my white napkins in my lap, noticed that it was dirty so I gave it to the hostess and it took her a few minutes to bring me another one and once again it wasn't a dark napkin. I also saw at the next table that the hostess did have dark napkins for them but dropped one on the floor and proceeded to pick it up and still gave it to the diner. Pretty disgusting start.

Went for husband's birthday. His meal was perfect. My lamb chops were over cooked but I did not send back. Everything else was just perfect!

I had one of the best steak meals I have had in years! Had enough to take home and enjoy the next morning also. And a free birthday cheesecake slice with ice-cream.
Yummy Yummy! I highly recommend Ruth's
Chris to all.

Great place for a steak. It isn’t cheap, but reasonable for the quality of food and the setting. It is noteably quieter than similar steakhouses in the area and great for a couple looking for a tasty meal while focusing on each other. We were there for a date night with my wife. I didn’t make special arrangements before hand other than clicking “date” on the open table reservation. There was some subtle heart confetti on the table which added a very nice touch.

First time dining here for a special Anniversary dinner. This is not a kid friendly restaurant yet a group with small screaming children were sat by our anniversary table. We asked to move. Then we had the most underwhelming dinner of our lives. Filet didn't even look like a filet it was flat and salty and lacked flavor. Eddie V's and Steiner Steakhouse much better. The lamb chops were covered in salt the first time and were remade and the second order all 3 lamp chops were cooked at 3 different temperatures, rare, medium and too well done. Manager and Executive chef both apologized and did take it off our ticket but this is unacceptable. The lamb chops lacked flavor and were mostly fat. The sizzling hot plates are stupid and because there is hot oil it pops. So hopefully you aren't wearing nice clothes otherwise you will have grease stains on you. Gimmicky and unnecessary. The wine list is marked up 300+% . 2012 Jordan retails for $50 and you can get 1 glass here for $52! Thats ridiculous. The only great thing about the evening was we sat in the lounge and they had a mediocre live jazz band (bass, piano, vocals). We will never go back. Not worth the $$

I was a little disappointed in the flavor of my petite filet. It was not up to the usual standard. Lobster Mac was excellent as blue cheese wedge.

Worst dining experience ever. We came to celebrate my husbands birthday. Three of us ordered filets and none were cooked properly. We asked for them to be cooked more which they did and were still not correct. We were treated very rudely and told to leave. Never visiting again. When you are paying $$ for food you expect to get what you want.

Our reservation was not honored. Asked to wait in bar that was freezing. We came for the obstetrics and there was none left but tails. Not the same. The Chateau Simard was well priced and our server Rachael was delightful. Still this was our annual holiday family outing, always at Ruth’s Chris and we were very disappointed. We will not be going back.

Parking and valet was great. Arrived about 30 min early and checked in with the hostess. We were told we would be seated when they were ready for us, so we went to the bar. About 5 min after our reservation time I went to the hostess and asked how much longer until we were sat. She then told us we would be sat after it seemed like she realized they forgot about us.

Our waiter was knowledgeable and nice. My steak did not come with the added toppings. The manager came by and apologized for it. At the end of dinner asked for a cup of coffee and the check. All I received was the check.

We arrived 25 minutes early and were seated right away. Service was great. We asked for hot chocolate which was not an available beverage, but our server found a way to get it for us. 8 of us had 3 shared meals and 2 full meals. All was served hot and delicious without confusion.
