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

No doubt the food is amazing here, the service impeccable, and very accommodating. That being said, we just ordered entrees, no appetizers, drinks, nothing. But it took 45 minutes for us to get our food. We both didn't want to complain, but I couldn't believe how long it took to sear a couple steaks at 5:30pm. There might have been... More

You will not be disappointed. Great steaks, plus you MUST have the lobster appetizer. It is so good my wife and I always get our own as it is too good to share. Always good service, plus nice atmosphere. Truly a gem of a restaurant here in Austin.

Not the best steak by far, far too dry for a medium rare and a South African! Had a cheaper bottle of Californian red wine which was great.

We come to Austin quite often, this trip was a bit of a short notice so as soon as I found out about it I flipped open my OpenTable app to book our normal main dining experience in Austin and found they were booked. So without hesitation I chose Ruth’s Chris, mainly on past experiences in other cities I’ve been... More

I really liked the interior, looked very classy. The waiters were very friendly and even explained the restaurant background since this was our first time. The appetizers were pretty good and same with the steak. One downside is that they pretty much make you valet park since there aren't too many self park places around

This Ruth's Chris is the largest I've seen. They have a few private dining rooms which makes it a special dinner for a group. Everyone loves what they get as all the choices are fresh with quality ingredients. Try Ruth's Special petite filet with shrimp. Its plenty of food but you don't leave over stuffed.

We ate at the bar area, and the service was still marvelous. It's pricey, but it's worth it. The steak was melt in your mouth good, like nothing else I've ever tasted. We shared one dinner, and could barely finish - their portion sizes are quite large. The atmosphere is graceful and elegant. It's my favorite place to dine downtown.

I am a big fan of Ruth's Chris Steak House and while in Austin for a business conference I figured that I would treat myself to a delicious filet. I know it's a chain and there are some fine steak houses in Austin, however, I know that every time I go to any Ruth's Chris, I get nothing short of... More
