Great birthday dinner! Kelse, our server, was awesome!
We were in town for State championship softball, and were please with shirt notice reservation accommodations.
First crusted steak came out well done when I asked for med rare, second crusted steak came out crust-less with the heap of garlic on top as of it were an afterthought. Paid for the meal and left hungry! Extremely disappointing, will not return. #TRASH
It was just awesome
We had a delicious dinner of filet and lobster which was cooked perfect! We also had a delightful waitress named Megan who made our evening even more special! She recommended a delicious wine that paired nicely with our meal. We enjoyed the evening so much and will be back soon and will ask for Megan again!!
As dependable a 10/10 experience as they come
We had outstanding service from EVERY staff member we interacted with during our dinner yesterday evening! We were in Austin to celebrate our daughter’s graduation and it was a memorable experience thanks to the friendly staff! The food was delicious and perfectly cooked! From the valets, to the hostesses, to all of the wait staff... at every turn, we received kind words and greetings! We absolutely love eating at Ruth’s Chris and we highly recommend this location!
We typically visit once a year for our anniversary or my wife’s birthday. This visit was for my wife’s birthday. Our meal was excellent. She enjoyed blowing out the candle on her desert. Thanks for helping me make her day special.
Loved it & our server Kat!
The place is just pretty basic inside. It looks like a fine dining steakhouse, nothing stand out or amazing. The servers were super nice and helpful. They didn’t forget anything or get any part of our order wrong. They were definitely the highlight of the whole restaurant. As far as food goes, for the amount of money we paid, it wasn’t all that amazing. I’ve had better more flavorful steaks at much less expensive restaurants in Austin. They do have a very good dirty Martini though. So that’s a plus.
Great food; however 2/4 orders were messed up in terms of degree of cooked meat (Medium Filet not sure if by service person or kitchen).
It was a great Mother’s Day family dinner.
Always excellent filet and tip
Notch service. Reliable
Spicy shrimp and wedge salad also very good
For the price you pay here there are so many other places to go where the experience is above and beyond. The drinks were just ok, for old fashioneds they are still using regular ice cubes and it looked like a coke. For a $15 drink you need to up your ice cubes. The food wasn’t anything special, my steak was cooked perfectly medium rare but the taste of everything just wasn’t that great. The creamed spinach was bland, my steak was ok tasting and the creme brûlée was pretty good. For $300 though I will not be coming back. Also the amount of people in there that were wearing t-shirts with logos on them was alarming. I’m ok with causal but really it looked like a lot of people just rolled out of bed to go to dinner. The service was good, our waiter was attentive, the waiter who brought our food though, he bumped the plate and my crab fell off the steak on to the plate, totally fine things happen, some of it fell on to a napkin on the server tray. He took a Spoon and started scooping up things that fell off back onto my plate. Just everything seemed unprofessional here.

First steak was well done instead of medium rare. The replacement steak was not up to what I expected from Ruth’s in texture or taste. When they took my steak back they also took the lobster tail leaving me with nothing to eat. This was my first meal inside a restaurant in 13 months and I chose Ruth’s because of its usually high quality. I was very disappointed. I’m 61, grew up in New Orleans for my first 15 years and started going to Ruth’s when it was in a house on Broad Street.
Excellent food ans service! A safe bet in Downtown Austin.
Overcooked steaks. Server was good and ambiance totally enjoyable.
Great definitely will be back
The food was truly the best steakhouse experience we have ever had. Our server, I believe his name was Mal, was very pleasant and took care of us very well. Every aspect of the meal was fantastic, and we will definitely be back when we are in Austin!!
Bad steak quality over overcooked
The “background” music was WAY too loud, to the point of being obtrusive. The service was indifferent, far below our previous experiences at Ruth’s Chris. The side dishes were a disappointment and the coffee, like the service, was far below Ruth’s Chris previous standards. But the steaks themselves were excellent and prepared perfectly.
Great vibe Inside our waitress was amazing and the food came out quicker than I expected.
Great weekend getaway in Austin with great food at Ruth’s Chris steak house. The valet parking was a bit of a mess but other than that it was a fine.
Excellent service & food.
Decided to go to Ruth's Chris Steak House for a date since we had $100 in gift cards. The food was okay. I've never seen Alaskan King Crab Legs as small as those served. The waiter took our appetizer order and brought them back and randomly set them in front of people.
At the end of the meal, the manager came and said our gift cards couldn't be accepted because they are a corporate store and you can only use them at franchise stores.
Fantastic evening!! Our service was excellent. The osobucco ravioli was delicious!
After ordering a filet with a pink center my wife's steak was over done. They bring another one but that was bloody in the middle. They seem to think that cooking them on high heat and putting them on a dish that makes them sizzle is the way it's done. I didn't care for it, you could not touch the plate without a cloth. My t-bone was done correctly but I thought it a little tough. Prices are out of sight. Won't be back.
Excellent food and service
I actually had high hopes for this experience and plan to visit Ruth Chris for years now. We got the 40oz tomahawk steak and it was lacking flavor and was not really that good. The background music was a little loud and was not happy with the upbeat selection of music made my experience less elegant
It was wonderful and good was jus exquisite. Love y’all’s establishment ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Excellent Steak, Personable wait staff, and Great drinks
Miss their great bread that almost smelled like popcorn. Also, they no longer have their signature harvest salad. Meal was good, but the change in bread and salad, and no really good dessert options was a bit dissapointing.
Waitress was very slow. Waited so long to get drinks and refills. Glass was dirty the junk on it wouldnt even rub off. Worst Ruth Chris I have ever been to.
Not the same Ruth Chris I’ve dined at for many years. I know restaurants are struggling right now, but I don’t see them making it. Too bad

My brother and I chose Ruth Chris' because we could get a reservation in the time slot we wanted on a Saturday evening. The reputation Ruth Chris restaurants has across the country is consistent at the Austin location. The staff couldn't have been nicer, attentative, and prompt from the second we walked in the door to the time we left. Sunday we took our 83 year old Uncle to dinner and came back to Ruth Chris because of the entire experience. We appreciated the kindness, patience and good humor with him. Thank you Austin Ruth Chris staff!!!! Well done....... :-)
Always a great experience. Love going to Ruth's Chris all over the world.
It was literary epic!! We had so much fun!
We joined several friends in celebrating my 16 year student loan payoff, and had a lovely time. Only caveats were:
1. Service was incredibly slow. From the time it took to order and receive drinks, to getting more bread for the table. Not sure if that’s normal for this restaurant, but we were there for THREE hours, about twice the time of other restaurants of the same caliber. The food was good, on par for what I’d expect.
This was one of the worst dining experiences my husband and I have ever had. The server was personable, but she starts out by stating it was her first night on the floor. That was a sign of what was to come. We waiting for our first cocktails for about ten minutes, which wasn’t that long as a whole. But then waited 45 minutes for our salad, which we only got because the manager checked on it. And by the time our steaks came over an hour and 15 minutes into our meal. They were overcooked. We sent them back and had to wait another 20 minutes for them. The server seemed overwhelmed and the manager was running around to other tables, apparently correcting mistakes as well. Although the manager ended up comping some of our meal without us asking, we will avoid dining here again.
Our goal is to always provide the very best food and service, so we are concerned to hear your comments about your dinner experience. So that we can work to make things right, please reply directly with your contact information, including a phone number. Thank you!
