    One of our favourite restaurants, nice atmosphere, great food, efficient and pleasant wait staff. Rarely have we had a problem, but no restaurant is without its occasional slip ups,but should it happen here you are always quickly taken care of, no questions ask, they always make it right in a most apologetic and pleasant manner. They really do care if you're happy! We will definitely be back again soon. In my opinion they do the best steak, hands down !

    Ruth Chris knows how to prepare steak. Choice of salads. Sides can substitute as salad or compliment the meal. Happy hour was a surprise. We will return for that. Irvin was our server and took care of us. Even a photo to bring home. The only negative when my husband asked for the bar menu. It was almost thrown at him

  • Worst Ruth's Chris experience ever
    dynealotVIP
    Dined on 11/24/2014
    I'll preface by saying I have always had a good Ruth's Chris experience until the most recent visit. The visit was bad from start to finish. Our waitress was not attentive, in a rush. None of the steaks were cooked the way requested. Waitress sent them back to be cooked more and they came back so overdone we could hardly cut them. We were there 2 1/2 hours and received one refill on our drinks. We were not offered dessert. Waitress charged out credit card two times and still had charges wrong. Not a manager in sight. Not only bad Ruth's Chris experience, one of the worst finer dining experiences ever.

    The porterhouse, filet mignon, ribeye steak, and even the tuna was out of this world. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and available. This was overall the best dining experience I have had near Naples in the 20 years we've lived here. we will definitely be back often.

    Not sure if this is the restaurant for us. The noise level was ht acceptable, service was very questionable. Had to leave to get drinks somewhere else because we could not have a conversation. We were seated next to a group of at least 20 people.

    Although part of a chain, the Bonita Springs location has a special feel to it. The staff seems warmer, the food seems better and the buzz in the restaurant is great. The cocktails are among the best I have had - ample serving sizes and no skimping. We get to Bonita regularly and stop at Ruth's Chris is always included in our itinerary.

    We celebrated our 5th anniversary here and the staff really went out of their way to make it extra special. Thank you Mark and everyone else. We love Ruth's Chris and have been to many around the country on our travels but the Bonita Springs location is simply the best. You will not get a better steak anywhere - period. If you are in the Naples/Ft. Myers area, you must go to this Ruth's and you will not be disappointed. Get the apple pie dessert - out of this world!!! Thanks again!!

    We celebrated our 43 Wedding Anniversay and enjoyed the most delicious meals. We enjoyed the very best fresh shrimp cocktail, corn chowder, fresh crisp salads, fabulous filet mignons with Bernaise Sauce, the most delicious grilled tomatoes and lyonnaise potatoes. The apple tart was also excellent along with the after dinner cappuccino. We arrived to a lovely table full of rose petals which was so very romantic and appreciated. The hostess was very pleasant and accommodating. Our server, Amanda, highlighed our dining experience with extraordinary attentiveness to detail. Our entire evening was exceptional. Exquisite food, lovely ambiance, great service and the best fine dining.

    Decor needs some freshing up..looks tired.. we have eaten there quite a bit over the years.. steaks were very tender but mediocre & flavorless. One plate needed to be wiped (burnt butter splashes and char) & was not appealing. We have eaten there quite a bit over the years. However of recent it has been hit or miss with the steaks. There are alot of steak houses to choose from, they need to be more attentive to food & not ride on their reputation at their prices. The service is always good.The staff is very nice.

    Nothing better than a ribeye coming out on a sizzling platter! My steak was done exactly the way I wanted, was extremely flavorful and stayed warm until I had finished it, all without changing the doneness more than half a click. Amazing. The salads were good, the sides were excellent, and the wait staff was great. Also, the portions are quite generous My date had the largest piece of Sea Bass I have ever seen, and it was excellent. Can't complain about anything significant. The only negative is that there are not enough booths for the romantic evening. This is more than compensated by the fabulous food.

    Great food and service. This restaurant never disappoints. One of the best steaks I've ever had. We accidently booked the wrong night, but when we showed up the next night they politely found the reservation from the night before and immediately seated us. One of the top spots in the area to eat. I will be back.

    We decided to have dinner here for my fiancés birthday. It was very nice they sprinkled happy birthday confetti on the table and gave him a lovely birthday dessert. We body ordered steak, I got the filet he ordered the ny strip. I did like the strip better, the filet was a tad under cooked for my liking and his was seasoned a bit better. The sides are fantastic!! Do not pass up the au gratin potatoes or the creamed spinach! Yum! The welcome bread is also amazing! Service is good but slow very very slow. Not everyone wants a 2 hour dining experience. Save room for dessert, the vanilla bean cheesecake is heavenly! Overall, great food good service. I will be back soon!
