Ruth's Chris Steak House - Austin Ratings and Reviews
I really want to love Ruth's, my engagement dinner was there many years ago, but it's been going up in price and down in quality over the last few years. On this recent visit, I ordered a larger filet and, while it was very tender, it was under seasoned and the cut was not as good as it should be for $45 (it was not flat but rather tapered on one end leading to an overcooked piece). The bread is not as good as it used to be. The sides are a mixed bag, some are good, some not so much. I did have an excellent seafood gumbo to start, but it was also bit under seasoned. At least the service was great. It's just not the outstanding choice it used to be, now it just feels a bit over priced for the mixed quality.
I love Ruth Chris. I won't eat just any steak and don't eat it often but will never turn one down at Ruth Chris. And those sweet potatoes make me want to die!! OMG!! I would eat there just to have them. If you haven't had them you are missing life. Just saying. It was 4th of July and we were visiting Austin so it was a very quiet night. We really enjoyed it. :-)
We took my husband to Ruth's Chris for an early Father's Day celebration. As usual, our steaks were cooked to perfection, and the service was perfect. We all had filet mignons. We love the 500 degree plate they are served on - the steak stays warm throughout the meal. It's our favorite place for steak in Austin!
Ruth's Chris was awesome, as it always is. It was an anniversary and they had decorated the table. Service was absolutely outstanding, no rush, all questions answered and suggestions made. Their martini was a little too salty for my wife, they immediately took it away and brought a new one. Wine selection was outstanding, with a number of possibilities by the glass. Food is usually ala carte, but they had available dinners that had 4courses that were excellent and less expensive than the 4 courses separately. The waiter "bought" us an additional dessert not on the menu that was wonderful and in addition to the regular desserts on the special dinners. All in all an exceptional (and expensive but worth it) dinner!
