    We were celebrating a birthday, and the restaurant had decorated the table with confetti. It was a nice touch. Food was great, except for the "molten lava cakes" that had no "lava" (obviously overcooked).

    Loved the delicious food and service. Steak was exceptional and the vegetables were so good. Nice wine selections. We went as part of the Magical Dining month in Orlando so we were able to have a wonderful dinner and keep the cost at a reasonable price. If you want a special evening this is a good choice. .

    Although I have not being there for the last 14 months or so, I was delighted to take my wife for her birthday celebration. Everything was amazing, from the receptionist to the server. These people made special arrangements to my needs, for example, I have asked for a dozen roses arrangement to be at the table upon our arrival... that was nicely done. Fine steak, well seasoned, temperature and portions were just perfect and Michelle provided a high standard/quality/knowledgeable service. My wife felt like the princess she is and I was the king of the night. Thank you all!!!

    I was disappointed with my dining experience at their Lake Mary restaurant. I expect it is more due to the high standard of quality across the board at the Winter Park restaurant where I am a regular. There are a lot of little things they do at WP that make a difference. I helped organize a group of 40 to try their Happy Hour based on my regular experience at the other restaurant. Feedback from the group mirrors my lack of enthusiasm for the experience here at the Lake Mary venue. Food was good, service was not maybe overwhelmed by the group. I waited 30 minutes for my change on paying my bill and then had to ask for it. The waitress gave me back less change than expected, so I decided it was her tip cut although the service was poor.

    We are fortunate to have Ruth Chris steakhouse near our home. We always have a great meal and great service when we go there. The food is outstanding and always consistent. The steaks are the best around. Management and the staff know who we are and always treat us with the best service and the best dining experience. They have wonderful wine menu with wines from around the world. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Our servers as amazing!this was our first visit, and definitely not our last. We celebrated my sweetheart's birthday and they decorated the table, took our picture and gave him desert which is pretty standard, however our server went the extra mile in the plate decoration when learning about our love of minions which left a lasting impression! The steaks were really prepared excellently, but the side items needed a little less salt. Over all a great experience!

    It was our anniversary. The table had rosé petals on the table off to the side. The wait staff was extremely friendly and prompt with the delivery of food. They were attentive; but not bothersome. We had the petite filet, broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes along with a Caesar salad that we split. Because of our anniversary they provided dessert, and a free photo at the table. It was one of the best anniversary dinners we have had. We would recommend this restaurant highly.

  • Not for the dieter
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 6/20/2013
    Ruth Chris is elegant, fabulous service, but for such an expensive place, they do not cater to those with special needs or dieters . Apparently most dishes ie vegetables and sides as well as most entrees are preprepared . You can't get mushrooms without beef broth, or crabcakes without butter and stuffing ,or stuffed mushrooms without breading or butter. I am very plain eater as well as a vegetarian and aside from the great salads there is little I can eat there. The waiters also failed to inform of the correct ingredients in the dishes. If you like richer food, and have no special needs this is a great place. If you have special dietary needs or requests be very wary , especially food allergies.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Steaks were disappointing. Ordered both medium. One was medium well and one was medium rare. Pricey menu but that was expected assuming the food was excellent. Got a larger filet two nights later at a local bistro. Filet was larger, better, cooked right and came with potato and vegetable - $22 less than Ruth's Chris. Baked potato was slightly yellow - not white and fluffy. Must have been warmed over. Creamed spinach was very good. If you want to keep your salt intake low, be sure to advise not to add salt - especially on the steaks.

    Ruth's Chris Steak House is definitely a wonderful place for spacial occasions. We were literally treated like a king and queen in large leather high-back chairs and the servers all took the time to chat and not rush us even though it was Mothers Day. My wife enjoyed her favorite cut of steak - a ribeye - and my striped bass was perfect!

    upon arrival we were immediately seated slightly ahead of our reservation and presented with an extensive wine list. I ordered a glass of Pinot Noir and my wife a mixed drink which was served promptly. The wine was VERY cold and my wife's drink VERY strong which on a Friday night perhaps but not a Wednesday! She ordered an additional glass of tonic to dilute and I a draft beer to buy time for my wine to 'warm-up'. The atmosphere was very nice and not crowded however, it was very noisy although that could have simply been from the shape of the covered table which captured every word of the tables around us. We both ordered steaks; mine a Ribeye and my wife a filet along sides which went down well. good food but not great!

    The food was just all right. Lobster was not firm, BBQ shrimp were not Cajun as advertised, and sides were not anything out of the ordinary. When we told the server about the food she went to the manager who offered a piece of cheesecake. Bill was $550.00 with 2 bottles of wine. Way too expensive for the value. Nice room but the food won't bring us back.
