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.

In comparison to other restaurants, the Houston Restaurant Week menu was a little boring. The steak was delicious. The potatoes and cheese cake was average.

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.

Our server was awful! Also, we made a reservation but was sat within the bar area, not good. It's restaurant week and we were not offered the restaurant week menu or charge appropriately. The food was delicious as usual.

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!

We enjoy this time of year and are always excited to participate in Houston’s restaurant week - 3 course meal for $45 with the option to add a lobster tail for an additional $18 - we felt like we had committed a crime worth double what we paid!

The steak and sides were fabulous. The service at our table was not up to par with the what we have been used to there. The waiter had no wine recommendations so we picked what we knew and it was good its just fin to try new things. He guessed the seasonal desert wrong and it was not what he said it was when it came out. I was full and only got desert because it came with restaurant week but he should know.

Terrible service, beginning with our table not being ready until 15 minutes past our reservation time with no apology. Service was slow, and split between to servers, who were also unapologetic. They also over-cooked my steak, and never even asked how it tasted.

This was my first and last time dining at Ruth Chris. Other choices for my birthday dinner were Steak 48, Perry Steak House. or Eddie V’s.

I had great expectations, but was unfortunately, disappointed. Our server was not attentive, and only did just enough. We had dinner at Perry’s two weeks ago for date night, and the waiter was excellent. I was so disappointed last night.

My lamb chops were also over cooked. I ordered medium well; however, they arrived well done. I could see it was over cooked before I cut into it, but I was too hungry to wait for another one.

My wife and I love Ruth's Chris and eat at their restaurants all around the US. It's a special occasion meal for us. We went to the Houston Ruth's Chris for our 25th Wedding Anniversary - our first time at this location. Overall it was a nice experience, but nearly as nice as other Ruth's Chris locations we've eaten at in the past. The overall feel was a little dated - probably constrained by the actual building structure that cuts up the space into odd sections. The food was outstanding as always - very consistent. One disappointment was that I had called ahead to have a high end bottle of wine opened up in advance of our meal but when we arrived it was still in the bottle. I had talked to the manager, Randy, directly so very surprised that it wasn't in a decanter on the table when we sat down. Also, normally for a special occasion there is a signal with rose petals to signify an anniversary or birthday. Nothing was on our table even though I'd put it in the reservation notes and reconfirmed it with the manager, Randy. In fact the waiter asked if we were celebrating a special occasion and I said "25th Wedding Anniversary" and he was caught a bit off guard. The evening was fine - but not the special experience we've grown to expect at Ruth's Chris.
