    The wait staff were fantastic. The host staff lacked respect. We were placed at a table that they just moved another couple because it was in the middle of the room and next to a table of 12 with a bunch of kids. I waiter stepped in and move us after we showed a dislike for our seating

    I have been to Ruth's Chris in Detroit and I had a more upscale feel then in Orlando. The meal was average andi felt that my expectations were not met due to the level of food service I received.

    The steak is always flavorful with only salt & pepper, my favorite side dish is the Brussels sprouts. The wait staff is always attentive and friendly and provide recommendations if asked. This restaurant is perfect for special occasions. Don't forget the Creme Brulee at the end!

    This was by far the worst steak I have had at Ruth's Chris. It was as tough as an Outback steak at 4 times the price. The shoestring potatoes were not hot when delivered and cool 1/2 way through. Very disappointed and will go to Morton's or del frisco next time.

    Went for Thanksgiving. I had never been to a Ruth's Chris Steak House. I was underwhelmed. The cost didn't go with the quality of food/flavor. Nice atmosphere, but our table was stuck in an awkward location. A column was between two seats, and one person at our table basically was sitting in a thoroughfare for the wait staff. Not too comfortable. An establishment needs to think about the comfort of the diners not the number of tables that can be squeezed into a room.

    Our family has spent at least 8 of the last 10 years in Orlando for Thanksgiving. Usually we eat at the JW Marriott but opted to try something different this year. Our teenage boys had the traditional thanksgiving prix fixe menu, and the 3 adults had the classic prix fixe menu. Everything was wonderful. The only side that we didn't love was the mac and cheese with jalapenos in it. Kervin (assisted by EJ) did a great job. The only snag was they initially wouldn't change our reservation from 4 to 5. I was told they were booked. I noted a number of empty tables and overheard the hostess tell someone on the phone they could walk in and sit in the lounge/bar area w/o a reservation. I would have appreciated knowing that too.

    Our first Thanksgiving dining out of our home turned into an exceptional experience by the team at Ruth's Chris. Our server, Lucia, did a great job in making us feel right at home. The pre-fixed menu was simple but really good, and they even gave us a take-out sample of everything we had. We will certainly do this again!

    Not the Ruth's Chris it used to be. Service and quality of food declines with each visit. At our last visit steak was overly seasoned with pepper, to the point of being almost spicy. Our server was more interested in his other tables, possibly because we look younger and therefor may not tip as well. Who knows? It was my boyfriends birthday dinner, I just wish it was as good as it used to be.

    We attend a convention in Orlando in November very hear, and have been doing sop for the last ten years. We spend four nights here, sand always go to Ruth's Chris two of the four nights. I travel to America from the UK s several times year on business and vacation. Ruth's Chris is always top of the list whichever City I visit. Firstly the Ambiance, but most importantly the ageing of the beef the Ruth Chris way always ensures a great tasting steak together with excellent sides and wine list. I have been a customer for over thirty years, which surely is great testament to the company. There a number of steak chains large and small in Americe, but there is only ones Ruth's Chris.

    Food and atmosphere were great. Service lacked. For the price of the food, I expect better service. The hostess was beyond rude...from when I called to confirm reservations and even when we checked in. We were appalled at how rude she was. The server was nice but my drink was never refilled until I asked him for it (if I could even catch him). We will return but hope to see better service next time.

Kenny, my server was most accomodating. He is a true gentleman. He made all my guest feel welcomed and took care of all of them. thank you Kenny and Thank you Ruth Chris.

    Unfortunately I didn't look at the dining menu prior to booking the reservation as I would not have chosen the restaurant. We have eaten at other Ruth Chris' locations. My husband didn't like either of the 2 choices on the starter menu and there was only 1 option for the desssert of which he didn't like. The steaks were average and not the best we have had in this same area. My husband said the dining room reminded him of a cruise ship (which i didn't think was a good thing and neither did he)

    I dined with my husband and dad over the weekend. We say in a smaller room off to the side, more private than the main dining room. Our server was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu and other happenings at the restaurant. Threw restaurant provided me with a substantial gluten free menu, I was pleased that I had so many options. All 3 of us got the filet. They were all cooked perfectly. No complaints about the food. It got chilly in our dining room a few times, and parking is always difficult if you don't use valet.

    My mother has never eaten at Ruth's so imagine my delight when I saw it on the Magical Dining list for September. Our table was in a fantastic location, just off the side of the main dining room in a wine cellar of some sort. The waiter was very good, but not as attentive as I am normally accustomed to. In fact, his helper was more attentive and friendly then our waiter was. We ended up getting talked into dining off of the normal menu, instead of the Magical Dining menu and boy am I glad we did after reading some of the Magical Dining reviews. A steak lovers dream! And the sin cake? Truly a magical sin! The blueberry mojito... it was "okay." Def wouldn't order again. All in all, another great experience at Ruth's!

    We looked forward to trying Ruth's on Sand Lake but had a very poor experience. Our server (did not really give us his name) was brusque, inattentive, and did nothing to add to our experience. We seldom leave less than 20% tip but we definitely did with him. Granted, we asked for the Magical Dining menu but we ordered a fairly pricey bottle of wine, so it was not a low cost meal. The food was not up to par. The salads were ok but the real disappintment was the steaks. Only one of our four got what appeared to be a tenderloin (and it was slightly overcooked). Three got what seems to have been sirloins - good sirloin but when tenderloin was ordered, it should be tenderloin. We were no please with this experience and will not be back.

    I went to Ruth's Chris with my mom in another city and it was probably the best meal I've ever had. I was very excited to see Ruth's Chris on the Orlando Magical Dining list so I could finally take my husband. The crab stuffed mushrooms and steakhouse salad were very good. It went downhill after that. I ordered my steak medium. What I got was well done and a little tough. When Steak House is in your name, I would expect a perfectly cooked steak. Given that the steaks are served on 500 degree plates, I'm wondering if maybe it started as medium but sat on the plate for a while and continued to cook. The creamed spinach was good, but the mashed potatoes were runny and tasteless. Very disappointing.

    Not a bad night, everyone was very happy with their meal except me, although not unhappy I was amazed in Ruth Chris to find my medium rare steak was rare. I am the foodie of the group who had persuaded others to go (who were not keen - but loved it, ex claiming it was the best steaks they have ever had, so it was kind of disappointing for me. I had a better steak with my surf and turf at Big Fins actually).

    Disappointed
    Dined on 9/18/2013
    Disappointing Orlando Magical Dining Experience. The side portion of mashed potatoes with the filet was sooo small, a scoop of ice cream would be much bigger. The size of the dessert was skimpy too, only about 1/3 of a normal dessert serving. I may not have been so disappointed if I hadn't dined at this restaurant before; but since I have dined at this restaurant before, I can definitely say the restaurant would be better off not even participating in the Orlando Magical Dining program. Also, the service was average, nothing outstanding.

    We went to Ruth Chris' with the Magical Dining. The menu was good and Rusty Ross, our server, went above and beyond. He was very friendly, informative and nice. He treated you like you were the only diner there. The food was the best I've had. The appetizer of minestrone soup was great. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and the taste was delicious. I ate slow to savor each bite. Couple that with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach-excellent. The dessert was cheesecake creme brulee-excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    I took my husband here for our anniversary. The service was great the food was absolutely mouth watering. The thing I didn't like at all was the fact the tables were so close to each other all I could hear was the people next to us talking or chomping on their steak. Our waitress was awesome! She recommended a salad dressing and some drinks. Other then the people sitting on top of you it was pretty amazing! Another thing I did/didn't like was the fact the plate was 500 degrees when they brought it out. I loved that whenever I cut a piece it would still be hot, but I didn't like that I occasionally hit my hand on it (but my fault right. If you love a good steak I recommend going here- it was the best steak I've ever had.

    From the time we entered to the time we left every employee we met went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The wine list was expansive offering many different varieties. The food was wonderful with the slight flaw that my steak was closer to well than the medium I had ordered. However it wasn't so done that I would have sent it back. We will certainly go again.
