Service and atmosphere were great; 3 of us ordered the Cowboy Ribeye and it was one of the toughest steaks I have ever eaten; the other two Cowboy Ribeyes were the same. Salads and sides were excellent but for a $400+ dinner for 4, I expected better quality from RCs and will likely not be retuning anytime soon.

Great food but the service was.. bad. I went with a group to celebrate a birthday and we’re all waitresses. The waiter not only was on cusp of rude a few times but couldn’t remember who had which cocktail when there were only three cocktails ordered. Food was phenomenal though, but for fine dining the service really lacked. Like was surprisingly inept. But hey, some people have bad days.

While the food and service were good our overall experience was disappointing. The value of the experience did not match the cost. Unfortunately, I will not be back. Rather than dining in a nice steakhouse setting we had more of a food court experience. They might consider removing the sign at the door that states, “Proper Attire Required” – that did not appear to be true.

Definitely not worth the price of admission :(

It was my Son’s birthday and I before we can even begin to eat because he cried for basically one minute we was approached by management as if he was too loud. Honestly I didn’t respect the way it was done. My son has Autism and he wasn’t even crying for longer than 1-2 mins. I was asked if I needed anything , I said no. Than she proceeded to say can you take him outside . Like excuse me can you give him a minute his a child. He just hurt himself on the table cause we wasn’t offered a booster seat at all. I always love Ruth Chris but this day I was very unhappy with the staff and the immediate need to try to excuse use from the restaurant because my autistic son cried for 1 min. I was highly disappointed that even a woman came to address the issue with no compassion or understanding. If my son was crying for like 5-10 mins without stopping disturbing everyone I would leave but man she came like lighting before the bread came to the table.

Overall we were disappointed the steak was mediocre, the waiter forgot our app and I never got a refill on my drink. If this was a run of the mill steakhouse I would get it, but they advertise as fine dining with exceptional steaks. I got better ribeyes and service at Longhorn.

We’re huge fans of Ruth’s Chris. We were craving their chopped salad. We each ordered one slightly different. They got the salads completely wrong. I ordered a side of broccoli with garlic. That’s how I always order it. Not only did it not have garlic but it barely had any seasoning or salt. Let’s not mention the Tequila list. It was very disappointing. Sadly, we probably won’t be going back there for a while.

This was my favorite restaurant in the USA.
Every time we arrive, we stopped there on the first day of the journey.
After almost two years, I returned to RC in Houston.
Big disappointment.
The porterhouse I ordered was dry, over cooked and the meat itself wasn’t tender as expected.
I am considering not returning to the Houston location (by Galleria Mall).
Other locations I have tried within the USA, are delivering the product as expected.

Food-wise, it was not a successful dinner for me. I ordered the ribeye medium rare; it arrived medium plus. On the second try, it came rare/undercooked; I didn't eat it. So, while my other two companions had steaks cooked as ordered (a filet, medium; and a petite filet, medium), I had no steak. Nada. Both companions thought their steaks were great. I munched on the Brussels sprouts (good), the French fries (OK - too thick for me); and the lobster mac n cheese (I thought it was awful - the cheese tasted like processed American cheese, and I think I saw two pieces of lobster). A companion ordered mashed potatoes and thought they were good. Both liked their creme brulee. I really like their berries and cream, but it took a second serving to get it right. Overall, service was OK. Had a great time visiting with friends; the food, for me, was disappointing.

I decided to go out for dinner this evening and you can never go wrong with Ruth's Chris Steak House. For starters the spicy shrimp, crab cakes, ceaser salad are amazing. Main course tomahawk 40 oz steak along side lobster Mac n' Cheese, Mashed potatoes. The steak was tender bursting with flavor. Lobster Mac n Cheese was creamy and tasty and Mashed potatoes were whipped to perfection. The bread pudding was to die for. Check them out for yourself if you haven't already.

First time dining at this location. Very nice design and decor. Food was cooked and presented as you would expect. Did not understand the wait to be seated until exactly at reservation time. A little more wait staff attend would have made for a 5 star dining experience.

Cuisine is not adventurous, but is predictably excellent for what they do.

Siempre vamos a este lugar cada vez que venimos a los Estados Unidos, pero esta sucursal de Houston estuvo muy mala nuestra experiencia, primero el restaurante prácticamente vacío y tardaron en sentarnos en la mesa más de 10 min, ya que nos sentamos otros 10 min a que nos ofrecieran agua , pedimos las entradas los calamares y un shrimp cocktail, después de 15 min vino el mesero y nos dijo que no hay calamares, y pues ni modo a esperar otros 10 min por el shrimp, cuando llega el Steak llego dividido y lo mismo 15 min para poder pedir la cuenta !!!
Una cena que llegamos a las 8 salimos casi a media noche !!!
No recomiendo esta sucursal

We’ve been to Ruth’s Chris several times and the last 2 times, the servers were not as attentive as I think they should be at a restaurant of this caliber. For example, one person’s appetizer didn’t arrive; about 5 minutes later when the server checked in with us, it was brought to his attention and then it was delivered promptly. Two people ordered glasses of wine at the time they ordered their entree and the wine was delivered to the table 5-10 minutes after the entree course - we were told the bartender left. My steak was delicious! The Lobster Mac & Cheese was a bit bland.
