Our first visit to this location. We were seated in the back near a window with a view to the parking garage where we could watch transients and skateboarders while we dined. The food was okay and server as well. Our wine glasses did run dry and after asking two members of the staff ...still nothing. When the server found her way back we did finally got refills.
It was surprising to see a complete lack of diversity in the wait staff despite living in the most diverse city in the country.
While nothing was offensive here...nothing stood out as excellent either. I don't think we'll be back.

its not their fault that COVID-19 Pandemic Hysteria has made this restaurant sub par. I was a drive up and the valet asked if I had a reservation. I did not and he then informed me there was a private party and the wait was over 45 minutes at 7:50PM. I proceeded one block further to Capital Grille and the valet echoed that status. At 8:00 PM I launched OpenTable to verify this. I was able to reserve a table for 8:15PM. Pulled around to Ruth's again and the valet grimaced. We were seated immediately. There was a birthday party at ONE table with 5 patrons and quite a few empty tables. The environment is left disheveled. sparsely placed tables creates an ambiance that of a popup eatery. if i closed my eyes the food was good, unfortunately i was not able to stay eyes shut so frequent blinks gave some satisfaction. 11OZ FILET, FILET OSCAR, LOBSTER MAC & CHEESE , GARLIC MASHED POTATOES, MUSHROOMS STUFFED WITH CRABMEAT, 2 GLASS PINOT. $206.00 + TIP $40.00

Dinner was awesome as always. Salads were super fresh. Shrimp cocktail was nice and cold and the shrimp was very fresh. The only thing I would change would be to use smaller Gulf shrimp. Steaks were excellent, cooked on those 500 degree sizzling plates, and the meat was super tender. Crab stuffed mushrooms and the sweet potato casserole was outstanding. Consistently great food and our waiter, Jose, was just the best.

A nice steak dinner. The steaks were good and cooked as desired. The lobster bisque, wedge salad, and crepe brûlée were all good. The sweet potato side had the top crust brunt which took away from the overall flavor. Service was very good.

It was a very nice ambiance but very overrated. I've never paid that much for an OK steak. It was cooked more than I'd like, but the crab cakes are a must have.

I had the 11 oz. filet which was cooked to perfection and my wife had the Chilean Sea Bass which was equally prepared. Had the Belle Glos Pinot Noir which paired well with both dishes. Sherri, our wait person, was outstanding!

Waited 15 minutes to be seated. Another 10 minutes for anyone to come over to greet us. Meal was lackluster. I had petite filet (HRW), husband had T-bone (none-HRW). Filet had no seasoning except for sauce. Creamed spinach was cold. T-bone was really rare, but he ordered it rare. But nothing to write home about. He loved his potatoes au gratin. We used to compare all steaks to Ruth’s Chris. Now, sadly, I don’t think we’ll return. Huge disappointment in food and service.

My experience was amazing! I made this reservation for my brother’s birthday. When I initially made the reservation on open table I forgot to add that the occasion was a birthday. When I realized, I came back to the app and was able to modify and add the occasion. I did not follow up with the restaurant to ensure they knew it was a birthday, but upon arrival to the table Ruth Chris had it decorated with a birthday theme and card. I was very impressed on the details and the fact I did not have to even call to follow up with the reservation to have this done. Very pleased, very impressed! Thank you!

We were put at a table in the back room facing the kitchen and repeatedly had staff standing just above my chair evaluating tables, talking, etc. The service was not what I would expect for what we paid! That being said, the food was phenomenal!

We sat down, took them about 5 min to even come ask what we wanted to drink, finally ordered drinks and said oh well let me get some Calamari since we are starting. 10 min later the calamari came before we got our water ( Pellegrino and Aqua Pana ). We ordered our meals and they came out on time, but my steak was cooked rare, ordered medium rare, and i was not able to get it taken back because he took off to do something else. The chicken was good, the garlic Mashed potatoes were so bland and had no taste of garlic. The asparagus where smaller than green beans, my steak was rare as well as one of the blandest steaks I have ever received from a higher end steak house. I have been to this location many times but i will not be back. I told the manager about my steak and he took my steak and went and made me a new steak, i asked for my bill and i would pay for all the food no problem and i said i was just very unhappy. Literally lie my bill and had to wait 10 more min for a steak to go. I just wanted to leave because of the way things happened.

Anniversary-very great experience. We celebrated 21 years. Ambience was wonderful. Service was excellent. We ordered from the Houston Restaurant Weeks Menu. All was very good. Portions were just what we needed. The mashed potatoes were a little watered down in my opinion. Steak was very good but not the best I’ve ever had. I wonder if the menu for Houston Restaurant weeks serves a lesser quality cut than the regular menu which, for the price, is understandable. It was still very very good. Overall great experience.
