I'm not sure what the big deal is about this place. The steak (we all got the filet) was very good/excellent. I'll give them that. But everything else was just...ok. The creamed spinach is good, but it tastes just like the Stouffer's brand in the frozen section at any grocery store. I'd be hard pressed to guess which one was which. We also got the brussels sprouts. I love them when done right. These? We were told they're sautéed in bacon fat. I hear some of you saying..."bacon fat sounds pretty good to me!" But, that's the overall flavor. Stick your finger in some cold bacon fat, it's much cheaper. Zero nuance to the flavor. The third side we got (FYI - the sides are made big enough to split) was the au gratin potatoes. Again, nothing special. I didn't take a bite and go....wow, this is really good! I thought...meh, I could have easily made these (maybe even from a box--and I don't think of myself as a great cook or anything). Now let's turn to dessert. We decided on the creme brûlée and the chocolate duo dish. The creme brûlée was good, but again...nothing special. I've had much much better. The chocolate duo? The plate comes with a small, moulded round, chocolate cake with an espresso cup on the side with "chocolate mousse" topped with whipped cream. Uh...let's just put it on the table right now (so to speak)...it's not mousse. It's much closer to the pudding family. Not bad for pudding, but I wanted mousse! Finally...the service. We live in Houston, TX--a very diverse city. I have no problem with waiters not understanding me. We both try our best and it usually works out fine. But when I'm paying big bucks at a supposedly top of the line restaurant....no. It doesn't matter what nationality the waiter is, they need to understand what I'm saying. The overall experience at a fine dining restaurant is crucial. For 3 ppl, we paid nearly $400 w/drinks and tip included. Really? It totally wasn't worth it. We won't be back.

First date since our honeymoon. Service was great, food was good but we’ve had better. Waiter didn’t warn about scolding hot plate, got a blister when I accidentally touched it. Otherwise, happy. Would probably go again

As usual the wait staff was extremely friendly, we even visited with a visiting manager from Austin store. The food was extremely good. The steaks were so Tender. My friend had them butterfly her filet and blacken it and cook it medium. A challenge. They pulled it off without a hitch. Ruth Chris has become one of my favorite steaks houses in Houston!

It had been awhile since I had been to a RC's, and got to say I was very happy. Food was excellent, and service top notch. I will consider going back, which is no small concession with all of the competition in Houston for steak.

Lamb chops came out very overcooked (ordered medium rare, came out very well done, no pink and very tough & dry). By the time the server had come by it would have been too late for us to send back and get new ones to come out before we had to leave. The server informed me that I should have said something earlier (to who?) and then still charged me full price. For such an expensive meal, the food should have come out right the first time - an expensive steakhouse should know how to cook meat to temperature - and service was clearly lacking even with the restaurant not being busy. The server did bring us a cheesecake as consolation that was very good, but desert was included in the menu option so it was just an upgrade, not near the value of my inedible lamb. My date's filet tasted fine, but not worth the price, and a little under-cooked for how she ordered. Also, there is no complementary parking, valet only. If you don't valet and park in the garage, you'll be told that you should have valet parked instead of getting your parking validated, this is not well marked outside. There are many, much better, high-end steak houses in Houston, would recommend any of those first; Capital Grille, Truluck's, and Pappa's Bros are all even right next door.

This was a birthday reservation for a party of two at 5pm. Typically, always receive great service and food at Ruth Chris (even when traveling to a different state), but not this day. It doesn’t take make to make me happy so I will make this short and simple. The table was not ready at 5pm (time of the reservation), I ordered an appetizer and it was never submitted in the system, and the food was just mediocre. The waitress did her BEST to make up for it, but it was kind of like three strikes and your out at this point.

Service was slow as they were very busy but come on that’s to be expected on a Saturday night. Food took forever to come out and Brussel sprouts were almost raw and we had requested extra crispy-we had to send back. Get your kitchen/service in order. Not our favorite experience at Ruth’s

The food was awesome, and the service was even better. It wasn't super busy so we were able to take our time eating and conversate about the wine we wanted, the food we were ordering, and everything else. The food was unbelievable. The wine list was GREAT. And it was my birthday, and they made it super special by decorating our table, and bringing out a fun dessert!

I've dined at 4 other RC's across the country. Ordered the porterhouse for two. the 3 (tiny) pieces of filet were perfect, the strip side was full of gristle and inedible, except for 2 pieces. Sad for a $100 steak! I didnt want to ruin the night by sending it back, so we just ate what we could and took the hit. everything else was great.

Somos clientes frecuentes de esta cadena de restaurantes y en todas las locaciones la calidad de los cortes es muy buena.
Este domingo escogimos de la sugerencia el menú del día que tiene muy buena relación de precio/calidad/cantidad.
En esta ocasión recibimos un servicio excelente.
