The food is amazing but the
The food is amazing but the ambiance was ok. The tables and chairs are crammed and there is very little privacy as you can hear everything the next table is saying. You could practically rub elbows with the next table. I recommend a booth instead of the free-standing table and chairs. Great for special ocassions.

Once again Ruth's Chris has provided for a wonderful dining experience. The filet, oscar style, was top notch....the cesar salad was delicious too!!! It does appear the au gratin receipe has been changed again, they were good, but not great...we like the old style much better. They were very friednly, great with our daughter, always made sure we had everything and I was very impressed with the beautiful red rose and gift certificate I received on Mother's Day to come back !! Outstanding, one of my favorite places to dine at.

My son and his girlfriend both turned 21 in the past couple of weeks so we took them to dinner to celebrate when he came home from college. We had a fantastic evening with great food and service!

One of the best
Ruth's Chris restaurants give an uneven exeperience- based on the franchise concept I beilive. This facility is comp-any owned and is one of the best I have ever been in. Everything was at or above expectations.

We were seated as soon as we got there. Service was pprofessional and the food is good. A typical meal at Ruth's Chris.

What an awesome dining experience! The food was phenominal and the people were friendly and fun. Our waiters, Chris and Shannon were efficient and knowledgeable. They made the evening a memorable experience for our 39th wedding anniversary.

Been to most top rated restaurants in the Tampabay area and across the country. This experience rated as one of the best. Fantastic wine list, superbly prepared food and top notch attentive service. Couldn't ask for anything more. Worth every penny. As my reviewer name says, I am tough to please but Ruth's Chris met the challenge.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is my favorite restaurant
This is my favorite restaurant period. Food is the best and the service impeccable. Never had a bad experience there and if anything ever was not perfect, I have confidence the management would take care of it immediately.

The food there is as advertised, it was fantastic.

Best restaurant in Tampa! Had the Chilean Seabass with Putanesca Sauce. Phenomenal!
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Special Occasions
We love dining at Ruth's Chris! The food and service are always excellent and the customer service is outstanding. We had a fantastic dining experience.

You can always count on Ruth's
You can always count on Ruth's Chris restaurant for consistent high quality food and service. Their steaks are among the most flavorful on the market. IF you are a dessert aficionado their choices are limited but good.

Great time, great food, great
Great time, great food, great service. Fabulous drinks. We had a GREAT father's day meal.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Staff asked if we were celebrating anything special....we said we were: new jobs, new move to FL and new house. They made us feel very welcome and made sure they helped us celebrate in style...even providing dessert on the house. Service was beyond excellent. Never an empty glass or a want or need left unattended. The food was prepared perfectly. Steaks were juicy and perfectly med rare. We also had the potatoes and broccoli which were also very delicious. Dessert was a chocolate mousse cheesecake which was very good. Although we didn't try it...this Ruth Chris has sushi. I will definitely be going back to try it. We had a great meal and great service. Couldn't be happier.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall the food was very good, especially the shrimp cocktail and the desert. The Caesar salad left something to be desired. I was expecting the waiter to prepare the salad at our table but it was just a run of the mill Caesar salad with not so good croutons - not even an anchovy. We were impressed that they did seat us at a nice table with rose petals adorning it. We have heard so much about Ruth's Chris that maybe we expected too much from the stakes. It is a very impressive restaurant and we did have a great time.
We were impressed that our reservations went through Open Table app without any trouble. I was quite surprised. Great tool.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still a top steak house
For some reason Ruth's Chris was off our rader for a while but not sure why. Everything was excellent as always, and they also have a pretty reasonably prix fixe menu. The bar area has soft live music some nights as well..
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great but not crowded for a Fri nt
Our food was amazing, including the calamari app, au gratin potatoes, creamy spinach, bread pudding, and of course the steaks! Each of the steaks melted in our mouths - my wife and I had the filet and another person with us had the NY Strip. Our service was OK, not great And the restaurant was not at all crowded on a Friday evening during prime time dining hours. When we left around 10 it was like a ghost town. Worried that other restaurants nearby are pulling a lot of their business. But, to its credit the food was delicious!!!!! Steak in butter, what's not to love?! :)

A nice evening @ Ruth's CHRIS.
A nice evening @ Ruth's CHRIS. Service was great; steaks and salads were worth the $. The sides (asparagus with bland hollandaise and lyonnaise potatos that were tasteless) were disappointing. Won't stop me from going back, though.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stellar meal and service paring!
Meal selections were traditional as well as original, great pairing options with Louis as an extremely knowledgable server. He definitely felt comfortable sharing his opinion on items with us, which really helped knowing we shared his tastes.
Drink selections had some new twists and the dessert while small for a sampler, definitely completed the meal. Can't miss items were the Surf and Turf sushi roll, Filet and Southwestern Mac and Cheese!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Touch of Class
The steak was most tender cut, with a Louisiana flare and wine list well presented by staff- special occasion without one to speak of and reservations after 10. Superb service, very attentive, and sharp. Close to Tampa International, hotel accommodations, and complementary valet parking for later dining on arrival or before departure.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great anniversary dinner experience
Enjoyed the evening. Food was excellent, Good atmosphere, Staff pleasant and knowledgeable, personalized service. No complaints at all. Our compliments.We'll be back for our next special occasion.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
They always make u feel so special. Our waiter on Saturday evening was outstanding it was our anniversary and he helped make it very nice. Food was incredible as always. We love celebrating special occasions at Ruth Chris Just that little extra that they do makes it wort it. Then they brought out this beautiful desert with our name and happy anniversary. In chocolate. What's re could u ask for.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great time
Celebrated my wife's birthday there on Sunday with the Duke Tampa Bay menu. Perfectly cooked steaks with amazing sides (creamed spinach and mac n cheese), along with a great dessert selection.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Of course I had heard of Ruth's Chris restaurants and that the steaks were terrific. What surprised me was the fine dining ambiance and warmth - both of personnel and atmosphere. We had a cozy in the corner table, candlelight but not too dark.
Our waiter could not have been better; attentive and helpful. We ordered a petite filet and a rib eye and both were excellent.
Splitting a baked potato to keep to our diet was not a problem and more than enough. No rushing.
We had a totally delightful evening with great service and delicious food; we're already looking forward to our next visit.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous Filet and more
Had filet, creamed spinach, and jalepeno mac and cheese. All were decadently rich, perfectly cooked and absolutely fabulous!!!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb in every way
This was our first visit to a Ruth's Chris but it definitely won't be the last. This visit coincided with the "dine Tampa Bay" area wide promotion. The meal was superb; the service was outstanding; and the ambiance was perfect for a romantic evening out. Definitely will be returning in the near future.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to celebrate
Ruth's Chris Steak House was an excellent place to celebrate our anniversary. From beginning to end, we were treated wonderfully. We enjoyed their prix fix meals, which included three courses. The food was great! The waiter was wonderful, and we were well taken care of throughout the meal. The cheesecake brulee was amazing!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the drive - again
This is an annual rite of summer for us. We drive the 100 + miles from Ocala every August to dine here during Tampa restaurant week. We always request that our server be Andres and as usual he was exceptional. Food, atmosphere, etc all great. We'll be back for sure.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service,
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. I will recommend this restaurant to everyone and will go back again.

OUR EXPERIENCE AT RUTH"S CHRIS STEAK HOUSE WAS DELIGHTFUL IN ALL ASPECTS OF THE EVENING. THE FOOD WAS SUPERB AND THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. WE'LL GO BACK AGAIN WHEN WE SAVE OUR PENNIES UP...

Made to feel important
We had a wonderful evening celebrating a birthday with friends. We were at Ruth's Chris for three hours enjoying our meal. The food was delicious, the cocktails and wine were spectacular, the atmosphere was perfect including confetti on the table for the birthday, but the best feature was the service. Our waiter, Ricardo, was the best server I have had in a long time. He always seemed to know what we needed before we had a chance to ask. He never rushed us nor did he make us wait. His recommendations were superb without being overpowering. Not only will I eat at Ruth's Chris again, I will personally ask for Ricardo as my server.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent in every respect, unfortunately my special night was marred by an incident: I was not told (or maybe I did not hear) that the plates were extremely hot. I think it is important to make sure the customer is told and understands, politely of course, that the plates are extremely hot. This will prevent uncomfortable situations. (Why the plates have to be so darn hot anyway!).

Ruth Chris never disappoints.

Always consistent & delicious!!!!
Perfection!!! The rose pedals & the sweet treat were such a nice surprise for our anniversary!! :)
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our wait staff was excellent; especially Jonathan who clearly knew the menu offerings and had a great customer service focus.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again, Ruth's Chris has outdone themselves again. Everything was top notch and we had a perfect evening. The staff was very attentive and polite. The food was mouth watering as always. The Filet Mignon was cooked to perfection, Oscar Style is the only way to go, WOW! The drinks were strong, and side dishes were flavorful and the dessert was decadent. Wonderful evening, thank you to everyone who made it special for my family.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always delicious, Ruth's never disappoints. Check out their pre fixe menu, it's an excellent value!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loud not private
The table that we were given was very close to the other tables. We couldn't have a private conversation, in fact we ended up talking to the people beside us. Food was great as usual, but was hoping for a quiet dinner, not here. Also, had to wait quite a while for our dessert.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time visitng the restaurant and we will definitely be back! We started with a drink in the lounge and the atmosphere was wonderful. The restaurant atmosphere was just as terrific and our server was outstanding.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We made reservations for our 11 yr anniversary. From the time the hostess checked in to our server to the manager....everyone wished us Happy Anniversary multiple times, plus they took a photo of us and also brought us a special dessert plate that again wished us Happy Anniversary,.. plus our tables had rose petals on it... Food, Drink, Service, and Ambience were A+
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went here for his 72nd birthday and the food and service were impeccable. He had the cowboy steak and I had the salmon, both were perfectly done. The sides of creamed spinach and sweet potato casserole were also excellent. Our server Rick was attentive and very well versed, he was able to answer all our questions concerning our dinner choices and even anticipated some questions. By the way, my martini with blue cheese olives was also delicious.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a nice evening and our meal was good. Music in the bar was pretty loud but the bar area is nice. Our table wasn't ready so we had a drink. Our steaks were good but very hot due the plates being so hot.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I can't say enough about Ruth's Chris, everything was perfect. Our waiter Wayne is the best.
It's like family. Can't go wrong.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the first time my husband and I have dined at the Tampa Ruth's Chris but not the first time dining at the restaurant on a whole. We had another restaurant in mind for our 1st wedding anniversary celebration but ultimately decided for here. We are so glad we did. The food was excellent as usual. The cocktails were divine. I had a blueberry mojito that was to die for. Lastly, our server Joe was spectacular. He was attentive and knew the menu very well. We will definetly come back to Ruth's Chris in the future.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a Winner!!!
As a rule, dining at any Ruth's Chris is a sheer delight. I've eaten at many locations across the country and candidly, this location is my favorite of them all. The service impeccable, the food is heavenly and the ambience is very warm. Even with several large groups in the house, the entire staff was superb and the management was on top of everything.
It was a special evening for my family and the Ruth's Chris delivered another first class performance. There are many choices but this place never fails to deliver. If you have a client that is "hard to please", they will only find good things to say about their evening at this restaurant. The bar area is great for cocktails or an after dinner port..
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service is always key
We had great food and exceptional service by our waiter Robert. First time for our grand son and he really made him and all of us feel special.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanksgiving to be thankful for.
Our experience for Thanksgiving Dinner was awesome. The food and service were exceptional. We were visiting from out of town and would recommend Ruth's Chris to anyone wanting a special dining experience.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome Thanksgiving dinner!
This was our second time enjoying Ruth's Chris on Thanksgiving. Some if us enjoyed Turkey, while the non meat eaters had excellent fish (the Sea Bass was cooked perfectly and well seasoned!). The service was excellent as you would expect and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience, especially the "no clean-up" part. At the end of our meal we were given a nice special leftover bag with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy, and cranberry sauce, even though we ate all of our food, what a nice surprise!
We definitely recommend this for next year, or anytime you want a great meal wi excellent service.
