Food was great. The only negative was the ranch dressing tasted like mayonnaise.
We had our anniversary dinner and it was amazing.
This Ruth’s Chris has a special meaning for my wife and I. The experience was great as always.
The food quality was not up to the usual excellent standards. The steak plates were not hot and we had to request an extra one and the asparagus was overcooked. That said the service was outstanding.
Outstanding drinks at bar to start off the evening. Very friendly staff & old school steakhouse ambiance. Food was superb-steaks cooked perfect.
We were celebrating our anniversary this was a great experience . The food was delicious, it was quiet, the server Mel was so warm and friendly. Really great . Will go back.
Great food, service and ambiance!
Wonderful experience I enjoyed my birthday and the free bread pudding the calamari and lamb chops were fantastic
The food was very disappointing our server was very sweet.

I enjoyed the dining experience but believe the quality of food was not commensurate with the price of the same.
Met my daughter and son-n-law for lunch on Father’s Day. The staff, atmosphere and food were excellent, great experience.
Steak was under cooked. No flavor. The service was great. Our server was very professional, friendly and attentive.
Knowing that it was my wife’s birthday celebration they sat us in the back even though there was a nice corner seating in the front.
We have been to Ruth Chris several times and this was not the experience we are typically used to. It was very disappointing.
Thank you for your candid review. We hold ourselves to the highest brand standards for food quality and what you describe is not consistent with our standards. We will work hard to improve and appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
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.
heretostay, we appreciate you writing about your recent visit with us. Guest satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us and your feedback has been shared with the local team so they can work to improve. Thank you for providing your feedback.
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.
Not impressed with the food quality
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!
