My husband and I went to celebrate his birthday, the food was excellent but the service could have been better. For example I ran out of water and ask for some more never to get a refill. I had to drink the rest of my husband's water. Like I said the food was great but for the price, I expected... More

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. I made a reservation through Open Table. Even though they couldn't find the reservation when we came in, they still seated us right away. They asked if we were celebrating anything and we told them it was our anniversary. They seated us at a table with rose petals which was very... More

My very first time here & now my steak expectations will be at this standard! Everything from the Bread to the decadent dessert was Incredible!! I got the Ruth's Classic which came with a choice of a fixed menu for one price! The Petite Felit w/Shrimp was absolutely delicious! That 500 degree plate, steak medium plus & it melted in... More

First of all, my steak was amazing. Outstanding service and atmosphere but in my opinion the prices are insane!!! At the prices they charge they could include at least one vegetable. I'm not a cheapskate, but I do like to get value for my money. It's a great steak, but I think there are just as good steaks for half... More

Mother's Day.....every restaurant we went to at 2:30pm was FULL and with a waiting line, so, when we drove my Ruth's and saw that the parking lot was almost empty, we decided to stop! Restaurant was pretty empty. Frank, our server, was amazing! so attentive and full of personality! He was the best part of our mother's day celebration. The... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for many years, and it always satisfies. The usual high end Ruth's Chris menu with all the bells and whistles is available. The thing that makes this location special is the staff, many of whom have been here for years since its opening in 1993. When you call for reservations ask for Ryan,... More

We made reservations for February 13th. Since it was the day before Valentine's Day, we didn't complain about the 20 minute wait to be seated. We had a choice between the $110 ea. Valentine's Menu and the regular menu. We chose the Special Menu since we had had it before. Between the Caesar salad and the entree, there was a... More

The food at this restaurant is awesome, no matter which location you visit. The eye fillet is my choice, had the crab cakes as my appetiser and it was awesome. Even the apple tart dessert was to die for. I would 100% recommend this place for anyone who wants a great meal.

This review is for the newest San Antonio location at Eilan (La Cantera). Granted, we did not have a luncheon reservation, but we were told it would be a 20 minute wait, despite several clearly open tables and no one else waiting for a table. Once seated, after 22 minutes, the time between ordering and delivery of the food seemed... More

Ruth's Chris is our family favorite for any type of celebration. The steaks are consistently excellent - always cooked to order. The choice of sides appeal to all tastes from the potato choices, asparagus and creamed spinach.

Ruth's Chris Steak House was founded May 1965 in New Orleans by Ruth Fertel. Our specialty is aged corn-fed USDA prime beef, broiled in a trademark 1800 degree oven and served on a plate heated to 500 degrees to ensure the steak is sizzling hot. We also offer fresh seafood including live Maine lobster, lobster tail & Atlantic salmon. Private dining rooms available for groups of 10-100.
