From the moment we walked in, until the moment we left the experience was perfection. The staff was phenomenal. The server knew exactly how to serve the food, and pour the drinks without being in the way. The food was very good. I personally had the fillet, the steak was cooked to perfection, exactly as request and came out in a very hot plate; which kept the steak at a perfect temperature. The garlic mash potatoes were very tasty, with just the right amount of spice. There signature lemon/coconut martini was very good. It was not to sweet or sour, the perfect balance of the two. There seasonal key lime pie was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant, specifically this location.

We had a 6:15 PM reservation. We arrived at 6:00 PM. When checking in we told the hostess we had a reservation but preferred a table in the bar area. She told us we could then seat ourselves which we did. We waited 15 minutes for our server to come, which they didn’t until I was able to catch the hostess as she was walking by to inform her we had not been waited on. Approximately 5 mins later Server #1 appeared to take our order when we informed her we had no menus. She retrieved menus for us & disappeared. Approximately 10 mins later Server #2 appeared to take our drink order. Approximately 5 mins later Server #1 reappeared to take our order at which time we informed her Server #2 already started. Server #2 delivered our drinks & took our food order. Our food ordered arrived timely & was perfect. Unfortunately Server #2 never appeared again to check on us or ask if we wanted another round of drinks which we did. When she finally reappeared we were done with the experience & just requested our bill. The icing on the cake was to then get notified & admonished by Open Table for blowing off our reservation! Ruth’s Cris was definitely off their game last night!

This was our first visit to the La Cantera Ruth Chris location. Our experience was superb. We loved the International feel of the Eilan retail location and the Ruth Chris was beautifully designed. We chose to pass on the valet and found ample parking within a reasonable distance to the restaurant. We requested a quiet table for two and were promptly escorted to a private booth. Andrew, our server was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. Our entrees were superb, in fact, probably the best petite filet I have had in my 30 years of visiting steak houses. We will visit again and request Andrew!

My concern with Ruth’s Chris was the quality of the steaks. My wife got Filet Mignon and it was “OK” according to her. I got the $55 11 oz ribeye. Easily half was fat and gristle. The edible part was not especially tasty. When waiter asked about our meal and I gave him my honest opinion he said “yes some of those ribeyes are like that”.
Not a satisfactory experience at all.

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.
