    The steak was cooked exactly as ordered. Sides are big enough that you could share and order different options. The service was fantastic (right down to constant water refills) and no feeling of being rushed out on a busy, New Year's Eve night.

    Had a resv. Waited half hour beyond seating time. $$$ steaks served were not cooked as ordered. Sides sat while steaks cooked more. One dinner of chicken was consumed before the steaks reappeared. No attempt was made for replacemen thot sides Unfortunately mgr spot visited tables but not ours. Servers should be accountable to check food order before serving.Very easy method forsteak doneness especially if medium is ordered and steak isserved rate. All in all, serious money was spent for a table for three and experience was not consistent with a Ruth's Chris.All meats were very overseasoned. Flemmings steakhouse less expensive, better service and reception upon arrival is exceptional. Will go back there.

    As always the food was excellent. However the service did leave us a bit disappointed. We are attributed it to the fact that it was a holiday night and maybe they were just off their game. But that won't stop us from coming back,

    Thanksgiving at Ruth's Chris was just perfect! I went with two people who aren't easy to please and they were both thrilled with the whole experience. Our server recommended a yummy red sparkling wine that was just great. My friend and I had the traditional turkey dinner, which was delicious - plus the restaurant gave each of us a mini turkey dinner to go as a bonus. Dad, not a big turkey eater, had filet mignon and lobster tails which he said were perfect. Service was impeccable as always at Ruth's Chris. This is our second year going here for Thanksgiving and everyone wants to return next year as well.

    With October being a quiet month, this is a great time to experience the lounge and Happy Hour at this 5* venue. Unbelievable Bar menu at $7 from 4:30 to 6:30, Sunday through Friday. I enjoyed the Tenderloin Steak sandwich with Fries, my favorite and my friends had the Half Pound Prime Burger with Fries and Spicy Lobster Bites. Everyone's meal was perfect as was the service by Meaghen.

    We are frequent diners at Ruth's Chris in Winter Park. My husband and I dine out quite often, and this winter park location is hands down the best. We love the food, ambience, service and for the month of September we love the Magical Dining. What we loved about Magical dining besides the great deal, we were treated as if we were ordering off the regular menu. The staff made us feel very welcome. Top notch establishment. We will continue to be regulars. Hats off to the management.

    Waited a bit to see the server, but after the slow start they were always around. Well made cocktails to start, a Port of Manhattan and Mahattan Eastside. Ordered from the Ruth's Classics set menus. Girlfriend's caesar salad was solid. I asked to sub the seafood gumbo from the Magical Dining menu ($18 cheaper menu), server said no problem, still ended up with chicken and sausage gumbo. Filet, shrimp, green beans, and mac and cheese were all excellent. Ribeye was overcooked. Desserts were the same, a brulee cheesecake, chocolate cookie, and rhubarb compote. The cheesecake ate more like regular creme brulee, excellent. Compote was nice, cookie was very dry.

    I had the dinner special with the Ribeye, Mac and Cheese, Lobster Bisque with a glass of the St Supery Cab Sauvignon in the lounge. Everything was perfect. The bar was busy for a Monday evening and I made several new friends including a member of the Orlando Magic team. As usual, service by Meaghen was exceptional and the usual friendly visit from David, the manager added to the special evening.

    I heard soo many good things about this resturant but when I decieded to give it a try with magical dining I went in with high hopes but left with empty dreams. The service was not what I expected, I did see a different level of service from those on the magical dining and those who were regulars and orderd off the main menu. The food was bland and dry but the desert was awesome. My wife and I do a lot of magical dinning to see if we can find a gem and we have but I was disapointed with Ruth Chris and I dont think I would go back well at least to the Winter Park one. Magical Dinning should be an oportunity to sell potential customers to come back but it seems like Ruth Chris see's it as cheap people that want a cheap meal .

    I thought that the amount of food on the magical dining menu was no deal.At Big Fin I got 6 oyster for an appetizer, a 40z. filet and a good sized, lobster tail, mashed potatoes ( the best I've ever had), and asparagus, plus a choice from 3 desserts. It seemed like Ruth Chris was somewhat put out by the whole magical dining concept.

I wasn't pleasantly surprised to see Ruth Chris cater the wine tasting with amazing tenderloin skewers and salmon slices on crisps. Beautiful prepared and presented.
