I will not likely return. Dinner took over three hours. After they took our orders they returned to tell us they were out of lettuce, so no salads. How do you run out of lettuce at 7:30 PM on a Tuesday?

If you're looking for a great restaurant for a business meeting, convenient to downtown, this is worthy. Had a great business dinner. Pinot, wedge, steamed spinach and surf & turf. The filet and lobster tail were wonderful. I would absolutely recommend. Great server. Great atmosphere. Great place to close a deal.

Best steak I can remember having. We had the fixed price offering - 6 oz filet and 3 huge broiled shrimp, along with delicious sides of honeyed carrots and spinach souffle, a fresh apple and greens salad, and decadent chocolate cheesecake, all for $43. The atmosphere is very upscale, slightly art-deco, with rich wood and soft lighting. This is a... More

Good steak, no doubt, but soaked in butter which takes away most of the taste of the meat. Exorbitant prices for steak.

Made reservations for Christmas to have dinner at the Ruth's. Restaurant is located is a classic architecture structure called the Scarborough building on 6th street. Spacious location with a perfect blend of style and substance. The waiter who served our table was named Daniel and he was gracious,pleasant and courteous everything a waiter should be. Also the food was superb.

Had dinner here when in the area on business and as always, the food is amazing. I had the petite filet and the baked potato ... both were delicious. It's very nice inside, as well, and the service was also very good.

I was in Austin for business and ate here. Like nearly all Ruth's Chris restaurants it was fantastic. I travel a lot and this chain is the best. I ordered the cowboy ribeye, shrimp cocktail, and mashed potatoes. So great.

My husband and I flew into Austin and planned to pick up a car after spending two nights in Austin. Our last night there I realized I had forgotten my map book and so we needed a map of Texas. We wandered around but couldn't find anywhere to buy a map. Dinner time and we went to Ruth's Chris. Immediately... More

First year for this location to serve Thanksgiving fare. Awesome debut! This was the best meal we have ever experienced on Thanksgiving...better than The Driskill and The Four Seasons. Oh, it was also less than half the cost. We already know where we will dine post Turkey Trot next year!

Personally I would give it a 4-star rating but my son says it's a 5, so I'll defer to him this time as the steak connoisseur (he's 11) of the family. We had the calamari and veal osso buco ravioli for appetizers. Both were fantastic. The calamari has an Asian sweet and sour quality about it. I think there were... More
