We generally love Ruth Chris as the food is alway consistent but they need to update the restaurant and have needed to 10 years ago. I feel like I’m the the 80’s-90’s when I step food inside.

Food was satisfactory but not outstanding.

There was a lady in a booth behind us that kept coughing…a lot. Disconcerting during these times. I couldn’t wait to get out of there.

For fine dining and a steakhouse, the last thing that should be sent back due to overcooking is a steak. Other than receiving an almost well done steak when medium rare was ordered.. the food was phenomenal. The service however was subpar. The waitress forgot several items, even after being reminder 3 times. We went on Christmas for a birthday and we’re pretty disappointed. They were not overly busy to receive the service we did.

We always enjoy our meals at Ruths Chris and taking into account current staffing and food supply issues it was as expected. Food was great, service was a little less than we have experienced in the past, but again with current situation, not terrible.

I’m from the South and have been eating steaks at various Ruth Chris’ from New Orleans to Houston, Pasadena CA and a few times in Austin. I’m used to fabulous steaks but yesterdays steak was a disappointment!!! That being said the calamari, lobster, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were terrific. The crème brûlée was outstanding. The waiter was competent and nice but not quite up to a 5 star rating. I had to ask twice for a moist hot towel after removing the lobster meat from the shell. All in all the four of us had a nice (albeit not a great) Christmas dinner at your location. I do understand the labor issue which impacts all businesses and this experience will not keep us from enjoying another evening at Ruth Chris’. Wishing you a Happy New Year and a great 2022 !!!

Finally, an Austin restaurant that delivers what it promises. Our food was served hot and was uniformly delicious, with the steak coming exactly as ordered and the sides, including the extras we requested, delivered exactly as promised. Service was polished and professional, with just the right amount of attentiveness. Wine list was expansive and had plenty of bottles un all price ranges. Overall this was a delightful dining experience, with none of the posturing and hype found at many restaurants in this town.

I didn't like the Hollandaise sauce. The steak was really good. We ordered Blue Cheese crust that I wasn't that impressed with.

Inattentive service. Very disappointed in how the service should be at a high end restaurant. Steak was delivered with no presentation. They didn't have our first choice wine and offered little help in finding a replacement and then no followup to see if it was good. We don't think anyone ever came around to fill our water or wine.

Compared to other steakhouses, there is no reason to come to Ruth's Chris here in downtown Austin.

Service was great. However, the food was absolutely not worth the pricing. The steak was presented in a bowl of simmering butter. The lobster Mac and cheese was room temperature and the lobster was rubbery. The Brussels sprouts were undercooked and tasted microwaved. We did like the wedge salad and the server suggested a great wine but we will not be going back. Go to Perry’s if you want a $200 meal.

Unfortunately my experience was poor this time dining here. I went for Thanksgiving and I feel like they overbooked the restaurant and couldn’t uphold their quality. We were seated in the conference room which felt like eating in a cafeteria. Our appetizer then main course were brought out within minutes of each other and food had to be sent back as it was cold. If dining on a holiday I would highly suggest making sure your seated in the normal restaurant portion and not the overflow section.
