Ruth's Chris Steak House - River Walk Ratings and Reviews
It was our 54th wedding anniversary and they treated us royally! The food was magnificent, we both had the Spring thing where you chose an appetizer, an entrée and dessert for $55.95. We both had the roasted tomato crab soup, the 11 oz filet and the pineapple coconut bread pudding. We were just in San Antonio for a mini vacation before my wife's surgery and it was a wonderful time. We plan on visiting Ruth's Chris in Houston (close to here we live) sometime soon.
Yay, the River Walk finally has a great steak house! We had a special visit by 3 random Mallard ducks outside. Charming place. Great service. Wine was WAYYYY overpriced, but food was delicious. Overall happy and will go back when we visit San Antonio next month!
I have had good meals here before. this time I got the steak salad or whatever it was, took forever, one piece of meat was cold (ok it was touching salad but how long does it take for steak heat to transfer into cold salad. both pieces of meat were disasters. it was almost a choke that they asked how it was cooked. The server was a trainee and she was fine. Maybe it was a Monday and they got slammed but at 1300 even on a Monday without a full house the food should have been faster and not a disaster. I will go back but this time was a fail.
Great service and appetizers were ruined by overcooked and then blood raw steak. If you can't cook a steak to the correct temperature after two tries why are you calling yourself a steakhouse?
The view of the water is great as are the bar specials but don't waste your money on the poor cuts of incorrectly cooked beef.
Asked for the best table so we can celebrate my wife birthday and got sits in a corner very close to the restrooms. Very disappointed as I had made the reservation one week in advance.
Our waiter was horrible completely forgot about us and overall the service was horrible. Food was cold and when asked for steak sauce was asked why? Avoid this place
At lunch, is is not the typical service of what one may expect from Ruth Chris's. Could be due to the location (linked to a Convention Center). Many convention members attending could be in a rush. Service, was practically non existent. Crab cakes were excellent.
We have eaten at the Ruth Cris in Bev Hls. The San Antonio restaurant doesn't hold a candle to to it sorry to say. The filet was average- if not below average. Lacked a good flavor. The service was lack luster. Had to remind our server twice for one of our drinks.
And a comment on our times - All of the children in the restaurant were on their cellphones during their meals. Other patrons in old jeans and t-shirts.
We should have gone to a $9.99 steak special place instead. Perhaps this Ruth Cris relies on tourists and doesn't hold the same standard. I do not recommend this restaurant.
Everything was perfect. It was my wife's birthday, and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Bruce was fantastic. He greeted me, and he greeted my wife by wishing her happy birthday. The decorations sprinkled on the table were a nice touch. The food was excellent. Thank you for a wonderful birthday. She is still talking about it!
This was our first time to dine at a Ruth's Chris. We have dined at many upscale steak restaurants throughout the city and this was by far, the worst experience yet.
From the start, it wasn't a good night. I asked for reservations in a quiet part of the restaurant. Where do they put us, right in the middle. Yes the table was set nicely, with rose petals spread out, we were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. Our waitress immediately took care of this and seated us at a more out of the way table. The noise was a little less in this area, but definitely not quiet enough for a nice romantic dinner.
We ordered our appetizer and it came out promptly. A couple minutes later, a young man came by and placed 2 more shrimp on the table. He apologized and said he was correcting a mistake.
Next we had soup and salad. Lobster bisque (very small pieces of lobster, no chunks at all) and caprese salad (ok). While we were finishing up this course, a gentleman came up with our main course (less than 5 minutes since we got our salad/soup). He immediately saw that we were still eating and asked if we would like for him to hold it in the kitchen while we finish. I said yes. Well, we finished a couple minutes later, but he never brought our food back. Instead, about 10 minutes passed and another person finally brings it. I cut into my steak and it looks to be cooked medium-well at best, I asked for medium-rare. While waiting for a refire, I tasted the asparagus (lukewarm, nothing spectacular) and the fingerling potatoes (warm and pretty good) and my wifes chicken, which was dry. The 2nd steak was cooked better, but still not up to par for a high-end restaurant.
Our waitress, Irene, apologized profusely and wouldn't let us pay for our cocktails (or anything).
In the end, we know bad nights happen, and we understand. I don't know if we will go back to this location, but we may try RC again, but I'm sure it will be a while.
I usually avoid Ruth's Chris becaus it caters to tourists and its prices are inflated. But I was eating with a colleague as a tourist and we found the food - steak and sea bass - to be superb. So there's the tradeoff - simple a la carte dishes exorbitantly priced but executed really well.
Food was good but when the waiter found out that the majority of the table was only going to order appetizers, he stopped checking on us. Had he done so, several of us were going to order off of the menu but after being "stiffed" decided not to. On a brighter note, making reservations on the internet was a great experience - super easy!
On the basis of their reputation and with the benefit of a gift card, we went to Ruth's Chris while vacationing in San Antonio. Our server - Irene - was exceptional. The Bleu cheese and garlic encrusted filet was one of the BEST I had EVER had ANYWHERE. MY wife's crab stuffed lobster and filet were equally outstanding. We would return again anytime.
Took wifey there for our 19th anniversary. We both had the filet mignon with lobster. Our steaks were prepared exactly as we ordered, and in a timely manner. The lobsters, it had been quite a while since we had perfectly prepared lobster like those, delicious. Our waiter Bruce was knowledgeable helpful and attentive. Couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. Location is along the Riverwalk and is within walking distance of any of the Riverwalk hotels.
Not cheap, so good for special occasions. The filet and shrimp combo was a great choice and not overly filling. Mine came sizzling! A couple of Manhattans makes the night chill go away. River front view great for people watching but not so busy and bustling that conversation is impossible. Wait staff was excellent. Come hungry!
We ordered drinks and got them, but that was it. Our waitress ignored us after we moved tables because of stuff falling from above. We sat there for Thirty to Forty Five minutes before a waiter asked if we had been helped. It was the worst service I received from this restaurant since I know they have great service.
Our server Raymond did a fantastic job of fulfilling our needs. I ordered the Lamb Chops: absolutely delicious. My date had the fillet and lobster. She totally enjoyed every bite. We sat outside and experienced a perfect River walk evening. Low lighting and low noise levels made for a very romantic evening.
