It was our 1st time here and it was my daughter's birthday.. we arrived 15 mins early.For the host to lie to us and say they ran out of the birthday things that go on the table. To only see her setting up other tables around us.The server was not around when needed,but aware of other tables around us.deserts wasn't offered until the birthday dessert was placed on the table.It then took 5-10 mins to receive dessert menus. I didn't like my dessert,I explained to the server I didn't want it taken off the check,that was an argument. All around a bad night,the server assistant was more aware of my frustration and willing to fix the issue. For the money it's not worth the time.

I must admit, I made my reservation first & then went on to read some of their reviews. To my surprise there were more than quite a few of pretty nasty reviews. So many that I almost cancelled my reservation. However, since I've lived in Houston since 1976 and had never been to Ruth's Chris Steak House, I figured what the heck, how bad could they be. My wife & I have been to a lot of Houston steak houses. You name the steak house & we've probably been there. Did Ruth's Chris SH stack up to them.....oh hell yes. Our waiter, Mitchell was just fantastic...was efficient, attentive, & knew his stuff....great job Mitchell. My wife & I were actually celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary (never told anyone there) and we had just a wonderful evening at RC. Great bottle of wine and a wonderful dinner. Some of these people writing these nasty reviews....lighten up...it's just dinner!!! Will definitely visit Ruth's Chris Steak House again.

I must say this was my first visit to this location and I was absolutely blown away. Everything we ordered was extremely tasty. The temperature of the food and presentation was just right. The entire staff was so nice and informative about the food and drinks. I only had one problem and that was the fact that I could not finish eating all that deliciousness because everything was so fulfilling. All in all we were beyond satisfied and whenever I am in Houston again I will be sure to stop by.

We were highly disappointed. When spend so much money at Ruth Chris and never complained about this place until tonight. It was cold so we dressed comfortably ((joggers and a jacket)). Being that we drive an hour and 45 minutes away to eat at a place we always dine at, we got there to be turned away by ONE of the hosts. The other host seemed to not have a problem with what we had on. We had on solid colors. The taller dark skin one grilled us about how we can’t eat there unless we had a change of clothes. So we look at her puzzled and ask so you telling us we have to leave? She said yes. I would have never thought we’d be treat like this. I mean when have clothes chose the type of food you could eat? Not to mention , walking out another couple was walking in and both the male and female had on sweats. They were seated. I was upset. I’m pregnant and only wanted to eat here because it’s always been my favorite. We go outside to wait on our car and ALL VALET people are asking if we’re ok why are we leaving so early. They tell us how much they always see us here. One of them tells us to ask if we can sit at the bar because there suppose to be other options. We go back in and the girl say I can get the manager for y’all. At this point I’m like look if he on the same stuff we just will spend our money elsewhere and not go back. However we were hoping he’d at least consider the fact we drove all the way to Houston for this food. He turned us away. My question was what does our clothes have to do with us being able to eat. We weren’t offered to order to go or anything. I understand there’s a dress code but good grief. If you’re going to turn away one person, turn away everyone that violated your dress code. This will be a lessonEd learned and as much as I love Ruth Chris I will have to reminisce on the food I’ve always eaten there because I don’t believe we’ll be returning. It was good while we were able to enjoy it. Worst thing ever!!!!

I’ve been to many Ruth’s Chris across the nation and this was by far the least impressive. They did do a little extra decoration for the birthday but had us wait an extra 5-10 mins beyond our 9pm reservation to be seated. Seafood tower was still partially frozen when served. French onion and bisque were on point and may have been the highlight of the meal next to the Caymus Cab. My bone in filet ordered Pittsburgh Rare came out medium before it cooked more on the plate, but I ate it and it was a good cut even over cooked. Fiancé ordered the 6oz filet Oscar seasonal special that came out as a 12oz filet without the Oscar topping at 2x the price. We didn’t end up touching the lobster Mac and cheese or corn sides and took her birthday cheesecake to go...all of which was overpacked into too small to go containers and leaked all over the back seat on the ride home.

Our water glasses were empty 70% of the meal even after asking for refills multiple times (when asked if we needed anything).

I’ll definitely give other locations another shot, but doubt we’ll return to our hometown Ruth’s. Too many other great steakhouses around town at a similar price point.

The food was outstanding as usual. However, the service was a little slow-2 hours and 15 minutes from start to finish. It was not really crowded. I don’t really think it was our server but was the kitchen. Still the best steak ever even though a bit expensive.

My overall experience at Ruth Chris was just ok. I didn't like the extra wait time even though we had a reservation. We waited an additional 30 mins from our arrival time. The hostess were being rude to one another. I didn't like that either. The service was slow.

The quality of the food was very good as has been the tradition of Ruth’s Chris. While the server was friendly it was nearly impossible to get his attention and service was slow. We wondered if since we ordered off the Houston Restaurant week’s menu maybe he felt his gratuity would be lower as our total check was. A table next to us felt the same way about the poor service. He did seem to be attentive to a larger table he was also serving. It is a shame that this really affected our dining experience.

Flawless as always. I've tried every high end steak house in the city, and I continue to come back to Ruth's Chris. It's my favorite, and hands down, is the best of the bunch. The steaks are delicious and cooked to perfection; the Caesar salad is the best I've had at any restaurant; the sides, appetizers, and desserts are excellent; wine list is extensive; cocktails are well prepared; service is impeccable; and the complimentary valet parking is a plus. Ruth's Chris is a great place for a date night or to celebrate a social occasion. I can find no fault with the Houston location of this amazing chain. I've been eating at RC since it opened in New Orleans before it was franchised. As a Baton Rouge native, I continued to eat at the first franchise on Corporate Blvd, and 30+ years later continue to enjoy RC all over the US when I travel. It doesn't matter what city a RC is in, the food is consistently excellent. Highly recommend!
