My husband and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary, and it was a really excellent evening. Brandon was our waiter, and he was very attentive, customer service oriented, and overall wonderful. We each had the Ruth's Classic dinner where we had a steakhouse salad and a caesar salad to start. Then we both had a filet mignon with shrimp, and we shared some garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. We each had the small individual cheesecake which they decorated with "Happy Anniversary". A splendid evening all the way around!

We went on valentine's day. Service was horrible. You could tell the people didn't want to be there because of the weather. Waiter failed to check on us. Definitely not the service we normally get or expect from them.

I was really disappointed in the cleanliness and ambiance. We were sat in the back near the kitchen in an area that looked like a junk corner. Our table cloth looked dingy and my water glass was cloudy. The carpet looked dirty and worn and noone bothered to pick up the visible straw wrapper on the floor. Bar drinks only for me.

This was my third time dining here in the past 30 days. Obviously I love this place but the service was not what I’m use to getting. I agree with other diners, we were seated in the very back which I didn’t know existed in all my years dining here. I bragged to the guy I’m dating about how awesome this restaurant is and he was not impressed. Nonetheless, I will try again to ensure he experience the amazing service that I’ve experienced in the past.

The service could have been better by the waitress paying closer attention to detail. We asked her a couple of questions about items that we were served, that she couldn't answer. The food was just okay, we ordered one of Ruth's favorites that had shrimp and steak. The shrimp seemed to be undercooked. The mashed potatoes were not hot when they arrived to the table.

Our first time there and we love it. They got us to our seat on time, when I requested for roses to be on the table it was. The staff was super nice and helpful, the restaurant was very clean and elegant. I food came out at a timely manner and it was delicious. We will return and suggest Ruth’Chris to our family and friends.

I don’t recommend Ruth’s Chris for any reason, but especially not for a special occasion. The cooked food did not meet expectations and was nit worth the high price tag. The seafood tower was great. The dessert was old and flavorless.

Our server was kind, but our table was cluttered with food we had finished most of the time.

High expectations for this nice steakhouse that performed at the level of saltgrass or outback. Too of the menu steak was ordered medium rare and served medium well. They kindly sent a second one. This time rare. Waiter was pleasant and apologetic. Room was loud. Decor was never at the level of Taste of Texas, Brennan’s or Papas. It’s a good mid level steakhouse and performs well in this category. Would come back for a drink and meal but never for a special occasion or special guests.

Is brand name synonymous with quality for you? Do you shop for merchandise that ostentatiously displays the designer logo your favorite hip-hop artist prefers? Is maintaining the image of wealth more important than actually building it? If so, then Ruth's Chris steakhouse may be the restaurant for you.
Ruth's Chris (RC's) - located in the Galleria area - offers a very straightforward, steakhouse menu that hasn't been updated in forty years: Filet, NY strip, ribeye, shrimp, lobster tail (would you like to make it a surf-n-turf?), mashed potatoes, asparagus, creamed spinach - nearly every selection could've been cribbed from Steak & Ale's (RIP) menu.
That's not to say RC's food isn't good. Everything we had was outstanding, & perfectly cooked. RC's adds a nice touch by serving your steak on a wicked-hot plate with sizzling butter. The sides are served family-style, & are quite good. (Side note: I know that Hollandaise sauce is difficult to make & even more difficult to safely maintain in a busy kitchen. However, for the prices of the sides, I would think RC's would serve the real thing rather than the canned(?) stuff we got with our grilled asparagus.)
The atmosphere is that of a steakhouse-meets-club. Cathedral high ceilings, plush carpeting, & gigantic paintings of NOLA-inspired paintings on the wall. All of this cuts down on the cacophony making it a nice, quiet place to enjoy a meal.
RC's may be one of the last (if not the last) high-end restaurants in Houston with a >125% markup on wine. Most of RC's competitors are selling wine at around 75% markup. A bottle of wine that retails for $38 at the liquor store will cost you around $95 at RC's. And they don't have a huge selection. The entirety of the wine list fits on the back of the food menu, with plenty of room to list their house cocktails & beers. One thing that puzzled me was seeing Justin vineyards Isosceles wine listed as a "proprietary" wine. It's not. You can buy Isosceles just about anywhere.

Steaks were outstanding as were the sides of creamed spinach and au grating potatoes! Steaks cooked to perfection. We also had a very good waiter. New setting is so much better than the one on Richmond Avenue.

NYE dinner was absolutely delicious. The spacing inside was enough to make us all comfortable, however,we were glad that we got there the time that we did (5pm). The crowds started coming in right before the 7 pm mark and the waiter told us that they expected 600 for the NIGHT! Meals are quite pricey but I expected that. There’s nothing they could do about the guest that was coughing so I can’t fault them for that. Overall I was pleased.
