    The food was absolutely amazing! It was well worth every penny although I had gift cards so it made it more affordable. A lot of times when you go to a "nice" place you are disappointed by bad service. This was not the case at all. The server was really friendly and made great food suggestions. We never felt like we were waiting on our food or being rushed, the meal was paced very well even on a busy Valentine's Day night.

As loyal RC diners in various cities, this outlying Orlando suburb locale offered the largest portions of perfectly prepared steaks, the most interesting and warm interior design and great service personnel. We will return. Worth every penny, Well every dollar.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/31/2010
    I have dined at Ruth Chris' in 5 different states. The Lake Mary's restaurant has to be the most attractive yet. The food was incredible and the service outstanding. I was there New Year's Eve with my wife and our two small children ages 5 and 10. Even though she was terribly busy, our waitress went out of her way to make our children feel at home. The chef prepared a special New Year's Eve menu and a separate 3-course meal menu for the children that was more than reasonably priced. All in all, a wonderful dining experience.

    As is typical with a Ruth's Chris experience the meal was amazing. Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection and the service was exceptional. The only negative was that we were seated next to the wine cabinet. My dining companion had to move three times during the meal so that the waiters could access the cabinet. While this was handled good naturedly having a table in this location really makes no sense.

    Appreciated the fact that person taking us to our table and servers used our name. Food was OUTSTANDING. The only mixup was that there were two special menus - one at $39.95 and one at $49.95 - the first one listed different entrees and one was the fish of the day. The second menu specifically listed halibut. When asked what the fish of the day was, my wife was told salmon and halibut. She chose the halibut thinking she was going with the $39.95 menu. The bill listed $49.95 - which would have been no problem. We did point out the misunderstanding to our server,however. The manager promptly corrected the bill, and our server apologized profusely. A courteous and gracious gesture - rarely seen these days and deeply appreciated.

    My husband and I celebrated Valentines Day on Saturday evening at Ruth's Chris. We have been there several times and are never disappointed. They honored my on-line request for a booth in the main dining room. We each had filet mignon and both steaks were excellent. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Minor complaint: I wasn't crazy about the house salad and will go back to my usual Caesar salad next time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 5/10/2009
    We went to Ruth Chris' for the first time on Mother's Day. Where the night went wrong was with our steaks. We ordered both of our filets Medium. When our steaks came, my first cut was a slight pink while my husband's was a bright red. The steaks were sizzling on the plate. I thought maybe it was just the end cut but when I cut more, the steak was brown, very slightly pink and not moist at all. The manager came by and asked how our steaks were and I asked him if mine was Medium. He told me that it was on the high side but "you do know it cooks on the plate? I can get a fresh one if you like?" I didn't want to be 'that' guest so I said no. I felt like he was correcting me but the steak was overcooked. I am not sure if or when I would be back.
