    The restaurant needs to be needs to be remodeled from the decor to the menu.The sides are becoming more inconsistent and the lamb is a big no no food wise. The service at this particular location is okay at best. It took them forever to come out with replacement sides and to fill water glasses back up. I really hate coming here for special occasions and would much rather be at Terra Mia.

    My husband took me here, we have been here before, to celebrate my birthday. We checked in and went to bar to wait on our table. At the bar, we sat there at least 10 minutes before any of the 3 bar tenders waited on us, but not after waiting on others that came after us. That was disappointing. Then waited another 5 minutes before receiving our drinks. We had to go check at reservation our self to see if table was ready. Finally after 10 more minutes of waiting they came and got us, to our surprise the dining room was not busy, and many booths were open and we could have been seated early or on time. Our waiter was nice, but on many occasions, we found our self having to flag him down. Food was excellent. Service needs work.

    One of only a few Florida restaurants that serves real Midwestern beef that was corn fed. Sea bass was also excellent with interesting piccata sauce. This is an expensive restaurant but the quality is excellent. Staff was sensitive and accommodating for food allergy.

    Had to pick a decent place to treat some of our family friends and this turned out to be a great choice. The food was great, the service was great. Strange tho, the restaurant is very quiet, maybe 5 tables were filled, otherwise the place was pretty empty and quiet. The food was still amazing, the steaks were great, the sides were great and the kids at the table couldn't get their hands off the calamari so its a great place for a date, a family dinner and to simply enjoy food.

    Nick and Brittny gave us over the top service without bothering us. This was a surprise for my wife who has never been to Ruth Chris before. My wife was blown away by the service, the ambience, the rose pedals on the table. She was enjoying every minute of it which is what our Wedding Anniversary is all about. The food was amazing.... Really can not come up with anything that would have improved the ocassion. My wife is already making future plans to go back with friends.

    I have dined here many times. The new corporate gluten free menu published in FEB 2014 needs many revisions. It is filled more with what you cannot have than what you can eat, and the pricing is not clear. Most things ordered gluten free were up charges. At least there were items in all areas that were GF...my husband also enjoyed all his selections. I did relay my corns and opinions to the MOD.

    So, I caveat this review by saying that I am a red-meat lover, as are a few members of my family. However, two other members of my family are not. While we have pined to go to Ruth's Chris for special occasions as a family, we have always been rebuffed until this time. To spare the details, all members of my party enjoyed the ambiance, service, etc - 3/5 of our entourage were quite pleased with the dining end-2-end (appetizer through entree), while the other 2/5 ordered other main entrees or stuck to salad and sides. Long/short, they were not impressed when you equate the cost-value and thought that there have been other venues that offer consistently better food across the board. Needless to say we wont be inviting them anymore :-)

    This was our first time dining at Ruth's Chris Steak House. The service was superb. The steak was out of this world. Very pricey but worth it. I was only disappointed that the side dishes were not of the same quality as the main steak dish -- they weren't bad, but lacking in comparison. Quantity is another story. Portions are large.

    Dined on 1/29/2014
    We wanted it to be a special night and it was. It started with rose petals on the table. Several members of their staff came to congratulate us on our achievement of 48 years. The wine selection list was expansive and we each felt we had chosen one of their best. The ceasar salad was perfect and not overwhelmed with dressing, the filet mignons were out of this world and the multiple desserts were decadent - as usual. We've been to several R. C's in several states over the years but this one, by far, is the best managed of them all.

  • Ruth Should Up Her Game

    Dined on 1/12/2014
    The dining room has nice ambience - widely spaced tables, high end décor, etc. Our waitress was friendly, but intermittently absent for long periods, such as when she forgot the anchovies for my wife's Caesar, said she'd be right back with them, but took so long my wife almost finished the salad before the server's return. On the other hand, drinks were refilled at just the right time. Appetizers & mains were solid, but nothing out of the ordinary. Desserts were a major disappointment, from the stone cold "warm bread pudding" to the choc. cake with a liquid center (still looking for that liquid center). Both seemed of the pre-made let's heat it up variety, although someone forgot that last part. Overall disappointing.

    My husband and I chose to have dinner on a Saturday evening in the dining room. (Normally, we just grab a quick bite and drink in the bar area) I will have to say that the crab stuffed mushrooms were bland at best. The crab meat stuffing did not have any lump crab at all. The bread that was served was terrible to be honest. Really? White so called French bread that wasn't warm. My lamb was decent but for the price; really wasn't worth it. The steamed spinach was uncreative and again, nothing to write home about. I will not dine at Ruth Chris' again; not even at the bar. I can think of so many more, reasonably priced, amazing places around Orlando to have dinner.

    At $90 a plate I expect at a minimum "good" food. I didn't get it. The salad was wilted and soggy. The filets were not the best cut--half fatty (although cooked perfectly). The French fries were barely warm. Coffee also not hot. Our server was very nice, but that only goes so far. Decided, since we were never going back, not to complain when (who we think was) the manager came by to ask how our meal was. What was to be done at that point? Probably should have. The whole thing was just disappointing.

    Was not overwhelmed, I had great expectations for Ruth Chis Steak House. The service was not what was expected from this caliber restaurant. Asked for more bread and it took over 20 minutes then came during the dinner course which no one wanted at that time, Ordered a second drink from the Bar and it also took a very very long time. A little confusion over the desert, took three of them home to find one order was incorrect and had paid the upcharge. The food was very good but probably will not go back

    Been here several times and is always a favorite. They blew it on New Years Eve. Food overcooked...I mean, cooked to death. Not at all what I expect when I spend that much for a steak. Shrimp and scallops were overdone as well. Looked over at several tables and saw many hockey puck filets that night.

    I dined with my workgroup, in celebration of the season. Making reservations was easy. The option of free valet parking was nice, although not used. Greetings from staff from entry of the premises was excellent. Our waiter, Claude, was outstanding! Knowledgeable and very attentive, I thought. He gave the kind of service expected at a $$$ restaurant. The meal was completely awesome! I had the lamb. Portion was nice. Sides could be shared. Not very impressed with the red wine selection but good, nonetheless. Overall experience was excellent. I have dined here before, with my husband and the same quality experience was had. I would advise having this experience, if the budget allowed.

    Overall meal very disappointing. Meat not cooked properly. Waitress very nice and attentive. Backup too busy with too many tables. Bread came overcooked and crusty and we had to ask twice for it. They noted it was in the oven. There were very few patrons in the restaurant so it should not be difficult to have bread available. Brussels Sprouts were very good and ample. This was not the usual night at a Ruth Chris.

    We were there for my husband's birthday. Michelle was our server and was excellent. Steaks started out tasting dry and my petite filet seemed to be cooked medium instead of medium rare but was better once I started cutting further into it. My husband's martini was excellent as was the shrimp cocktail and chopped salads. Baked potato was way overcooked.
