The food is always of the upmost quality. The room was noisy and the service was missing (could of been a few more check-ins from the staff). The Store Manager did not come around to check on the evening, a little disappointed in that too.

For the first time, the service was not stellar. They delivered our entrees and we had not been served our salads! They got that straightened out. And the steaks were wonderful, as usual, cooked to perfection.
Then we told our waitress to please bag up my dessert and 5 minutes later, here comes my dessert on a plate! Very unusual for Ruth’s Chris because usually the service and food are perfect. Don’t think it was the waitress’s fault.
We’ll still come back, as they have the best steaks anywhere. And the cocktails were fantastic!

My wife and I ordered medium rare filet, but her's was more medium well rather than medium rare. It tasted just fine except it was over cooked and she did not want to wait for a reorder.

The consistency and quality is the same all over the U.S. . This is in the service, decor, ambiance, and of the steaks. The buttery goodness can not be beat !

Made reservations but never stayed to have dinner . I have dined at Ruth Chris’s in Chicago and Indianapolis. Both establishments were most enjoyable . This place is simply “sad” . The restaurant had a bad nearly septic odor. I felt as if it were an old Ruth Chris’s that had been lifted up and dropped into an old holiday inn that was on the verge of becoming a motel 6 or worse yet a red roof inn . You will loose your appetite before the menus is delivered to you .

We booked their last seating due to a late airplane landing and when we got to the restaurant, we were the only ones still being sat, with two tables close to leaving. But despite the late hour, the restaurant and staff handled the late seating well. We did have to rush to get our order in before the kitchen closed, but that was absolutely understandable. Excellent service and food. Ribeye was great, bottle of wine recommendation terrific. Shrimp appetizer a must have. And we got a nice birthday celebration dessert as a treat including candle and chocolate writing. Fantastic romantic getaway with my husband.

27 Th wedding anniversary. Bar tender was great. Rachel the server was awesome. I asked for a well done filet and after going back to the kitchen twice it was near well done on inside while the outside was charred. Did not enjoy the steak. The mushroom and potatoes sides we ordered were great.

I selected Ruth's Chris for this special business meeting to celebrate the success of a very special person, Nadia C. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed our evening together. Everything was perfect, from the valet attendant to the entire staff. Rachel was our waitress and she did an excellent job. She was very patient with us and allowed us to take our time when ordering. The food was superb and everything we ordered was served by people with smiles on their faces. Could not have scripted a better evening. Thanks to the entire team.

Ruth’s doesn’t disappoint! This was a dinner with my two senior in college “children” and prior to a show at the Paramount theatre down the street. Great location for downtown events, service is wonderful, Michael was our server and was perfect, as was the rest of the serving staff. Food couldn’t have been better. Ruth’s Chris is consistently a great meal, in the updated/remodeled Austin location.

Typical Ruth's Chris. Good Food, good service. My steak wasn't the best I have had there, but the gentleman I was hosting for a business dinner claimed it was one of the best steaks he had ever had. Not loving the new remodel, but I am an old school steakhouse kind of guy.

The service was excellent and the two filet's we ordered were perfect. Was a bit surprised at the presentation of the Rib-Eye. It certainly didn't look like a $50 piece of meat. All of the sides were great.

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 .

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.

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.
