Ruth’s Chris is always a delight. Of course with it being Valentine’s Day, it was a bit “off”, which should never be an excuse for a Chris steakhouse, but for the most part, everything was superb.

Let me start by saying our server was great and management more than made up for the problems we encountered, with grace and kindness. It felt like the twilight zone because it was so out of character for a Ruth’s Chris, but our issues included: one steak being overcooked not once but twice (ordered medium rare and came well), and it looked like a grocery store choice rib eye rather than a prime from a top steakhouse; most of our sides were cold and a couple looked like they had been cooked the week before and reheated, or popped in the microwave straight from the Schwann’s truck. The other steak was more done than we ordered, and also wasn’t the quality I would expect from a place like this. But again, management was gracious and accommodating. I’m not sure what the deal was but I would never chance this happening again. There are far too many reliable restaurants in San Antonio to try Ruth’s Chris again.

This location had the best service and ambiance of any Ruth Chris that I have been to - the food was excellent - our steaks were cooked exactly to our taste. I wish that the booths were a bit larger. The surrounding location of the restaurant feels a bit like a ghost town, hopefully there will be more retail stores opening to bring additional foot traffic.

Birthday Lunch. There were probably 4 other customers yet service was SO slow. This has to be the worst Ruth's Chris I've ever been to. They just don't seem to care. Manager never stops by to see how food is, it's almost like they want to close!

Buen restaurant como todos los de la cadena pero en este el servicio fue realmente bueno, pedí una botella de vino y no había después escogí otra y tampoco y es normal porque estaban en descuento lo bueno del caso es que la gerente se dio cuenta de lo que paso y me dio la oportunidad de pedir una botella mucho mejor de lo que había escogido a un precio mucho menor la verdad me sentí muy halagado, voy a regresar muchas veces!!

Can’t say enough good things about this place. Best rib eye in town, great wine selection and really fantastic wait staff and management. Chef came to visit our table which is a nice touch you don’t see often. Bananas foster is amazing!! Going back on New Years and I can’t wait. Great job guys.

The food was fine but the service was not at all worth the experience for our holiday dinner. The waitress service was poor. When we would try to speak she seemed as if she was rushing us and we had to wait like almost an hour just to cash out after our meal.

The expectation for this tier restaurant is obviously very high. I brought my team out for a Christmas and 2018 accomplishments celebration. Unfortunately the wait staff and chef made a number of errors. I found a gnat in my almost full wine glass. The glass was replaced but the waiter first tried to pour wine from the bottle on our table. Next the entrees arrived and mine and two others were given to wrong people. My steak was then cut into before he realized what was done. Finally, my steak was ordered rare and as happens with lower end steak houses the outside wasn’t browned properly. When you pay a premium price you expect better performance from the staff. This experience will cause me to rethink choosing Ruth’s Chris in the future.

We like Ruth's Chris but this time they just couldn't get my steak right. I ordered a medium well...it came out very undercooked, still bleeding. I asked for them to take it back and cook it longer. They did...it came back charred on the outside. Aside from my steak it was a great dinner with excellent service. Just hate to spend $200+ on dinner and I couldn't even finish my steak.

We had dinner for my son’s birthday. They had the table decorated - an unexpected surprise. Very nice. I’ll begin with the blueberry mojito = delicious. For our entrees we had petite filets, ribeyes, and lamb chops. No complaints at all. Meat cooked perfectly. So tender and full of flavor. We had 5 sides all were outstanding my favorites were the creamed spinach and grilled asparagus. Desserts looked delicious but we were out of room. Forgot to mention service was exceptional. Manager even stopped by table to thank us for coming and make sure everything was to our liking-It was a GREAT evening.
