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

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
