    From the moment we were seated to the end everything was excellent. Some of the food was not prepared as ordered and some was cold but our server corrected this mistake at once without any issue or excuses. Overall the dinner was outstanding and prepared as ordered. We really like their food and presentation. This is a great place for dinner and a special occasion.

    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 think customers should receive a larger portion of food. The amount paid for the overall dinner needs to be "More bang for the buck!" I will say Ruth Chris rolls out the red carpet for customer service.

    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.

    A friend and I dropped in for a quick nibble before a Wine tasting event across the street. As usual great food and service within my short time constraints. 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. David O, the manager, remains the model host!

    I was looking forward to this magical dining experience because I hadn't been to a Ruth Chris in 5 years. How disappointed I am. The service was excellent, however the seating stunk. I couldn't hear anything my friend was saying so we just stopped trying. The filet was Very tender but no flavor.

    My husband and I ate at Ruth's Chris for the first time on 9/21/13. We took advantage of the Magical Dining Menu. Both of us agree that the petite filet was the best that we have ever eaten at any restaurant. And, the special menu had just the right selections and portions so that we did not leave the restaurant hungry. We have always heard Sean Hannity rave about the great food here and he is spot on. We will definitely return to this restaurant in the future.

    Ruth's Chris has a unique steak taste that you not only savor but you feel that it just can't get any better. I love eating there every time we go. The side dishes are huge and delicious. My wife and I had the Chicken and Andoui Sausage Gumbo that was fantastic and with our filets we had garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. We always carry home leftovers because the portions are so large. We had a small bowl of ice cream and a personal cheesecake that was the perfect size and end to our meal.

    saltyVIP
    Dined on 9/14/2013
    We sat in a back room that was over heated, and being Florida, we really wanted AC that worked. The salads came out incorrectly to start, and then the second time also. What is so hard about no onions that you also do not put the crutons on? The mashed potates and spinache were luke warm . We asked for bread twice and got it after the meal was finished. (ooops) However, the steaks were great and cooked properly. The problem is that you want a meal not just a great steak and want and expect proper service when going to a restaurant with prices as such. The wine list was good and reasonable.

    Amazing service with oustanding ambience. The wait staff was just right and I had a sense of being at a great European Restaurant. The steak was absolutely the best. I've never had better but that is where the great ended. The salad and soup were salted to the point of not being able to eat. All the other dishes were okay but nothing special. The sides were ordinary and frankly I've had better from a box. The pastry was boring and plain. I would not make an effort to go back to the restaurant even with the wonderful service and ambience.

    There is no reason for us to go back to Ruth's Chris Steak House The staff never left us alone They took my wife's salad plate and then stood waiting for me to finish my salad I ordered a medium +1 steak and it was at best medium rare. Fortunately the plates are 500 degrees when the meal is served so I was able to cut it and continue cooking it on the plate. The steak was a very good cut They consistently would reach over me while I was eating to pour water in my water glass They rushed us through our meal as if they needed the table and there were more empty tables than occupied

    My Daughter and I dined at Ruths Chris in the Winter Park area of Florida on Saturday evening. The food was great and the service was good also. We went primarily because of the $33 Orlando Magical dining which we heard about on line. I was surprised that this was not a part of their regular menu and was not offered to us until I asked the waitress about it. I think it should be a part of the menu so all guests are made aware of this magical event. Otherwise, no complaints, as usual!!!
