Diner Reviews
  • "As usual, dinner at Ruth's Chris was excellent. There are only so many ways to say that for a top tier steakhouse that they do it better than everyone else...and consistently. Service, quality, atmosphere and even the value has made them impossible to beat. The only complaint I have is they removed the gumbo from the menu quite a while ago which was always one of the best things on the menu. Best gumbo I ever had and hoping this will start a groundswell of support to bring it back ;) A+ otherwise!"

  • "The food was on point, however, the service was not as good as in times before. We visit this location a few times per year and on this particular evening, the server, was quite stand-offish and rushed through taking our order. The usual introduction of evening features and desserts were skipped. It was a weekday and the restaurant was not busy so we aren't sure why the rush."

  • "When looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate the birthdays of my husband and his best friend, Ruth's Chris came highly recommended, and oh my they did not disappoint. When we arrived, the valets were professional and friendly. Greeting us with pleasant smiles. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted again, with a "Hello, welcome to Ruth's Chris" by the Hostess who checked in our reservation. We were a party of 4. The wait was at worse 5 minutes and we were escorted to our table, which was delicately decorated with confetti and birthday cards ( very pleasant, and quite a surprise). I had the veal, which was spectacular, my husband had the BBQ Shrimp, his best friend and date had the steak. Phenomenal, everything was delicious!"

  • "The steak was to die for!! It was so tender with the aid of butter and when you hear the sizzle as its being carried out, you cannot help to brace yourself and dig in. I will definitely go back."

  • "After having eaten at this chain up north, we disappointed in the seating, atmosphere. Staff overly friendly, trying to be helpful but could tone it down a little. Food predictably good, but Too much pepper in the fries."

  • "Was not what it is cracked up to be. Steaks were a bit over-done. Service was very slow. 20 min. for salad. Our waiter would stop an another table with an armfull of stuff for our table! We expected more from this restaurant."

  • "The waitress was excellent and very supportive of our needs all through dinner; and the management came over several times to make sure we were satisfied with our meal. Our table was beautifully decorated with rose parts, etc. because we were celebrating our Anniversary. I believe the dinner is their forte; but lunch on Sunday and bar service for special offerings is also available. The rib eye steak was as good as anywhere and the sweet potatoes are the "best". I highly recommend this restaurant."

    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This is the best steak in the area. Forget the trendy Prime 112 or even Morton's. If you are a meat lover are looking for the best tasting cut of beef, this is the place to eat. They have a great wine list, and the appetizer and side items are plentiful from which to choose. From the sizzling hot plate to the melted butter on top, you cannot beat Ruth's Chris."

  • "The restaurant went out of their way to make my Dad's 97th birthday special - calling in advance to find out his name, welcoming him by name at the door, confetti and card on the table, candles on dessert, etc. All was delicious and the service impeccable."

  • "We were greeted when we valet park, as well inside at the reception area. Our reserved table was ready, decorated with Birthday greetings with a card from the restaurant. The server was on top of his game with suggestions and gave us time to savor our drinks before placing our orders. Nice touch having one of the server splitting our salad in front of us, then serving us. The petite filet and shrimps were delicious, and just the right temperature. As treat for my Birthday, the desert was on them! Overall, great time, that why we come back!"

  • "I have been to Ruth's Chris Fort Lauderdale location many times, and was quite disappointed this time. Our server was excellent; however, the food was not up to the usual standard and the restaurant ambiance was missing. I requested the main dining room and was told upon arrival that it was being used for a private party. I also requested a booth, but was seated at a regular table. Since this was a birthday celebration the table was already decorated, so I did not ask to be moved. The reservation and room selection had been confirmed the day before. The second dining room was about 2/3 empty and thus did not create an energetic atmosphere."

  • "The service was excellent. The waiter was nice and complimentary of our support. The food was great and the ambiance could have been better. The tables are somewhat too close to each other. The place was nice and somewhat packed."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Everything we had here, wine from the extensive wine list, salad, starters, sides, dessert, was amazing except the actual steak! This is a steakhouse as I recall and for the actual meat to be ehhh...and chewy nonetheless is a shame. Had the steak been edible we would gladly return as the sweet potato casserole is the bomb! Yes I said it, da bomb! As is the banana cream pie and a few shared starters...but seeing as the meat is no good this was our first and final visit to Ruth Chris's as there are far better steak options in the area."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Ordered a petite filet mignon - fatty and over cooked. Nothing like Roosevelt field - on the flip side service was great and they took it off the bill - Wine list - just ok "

  • "Waiter Phillip was very professional and provided good service. We have dined often at Ruth's Chris in other cities. Lobster tails acopanying my filet arrived several minutes after steak was served and they were cold. The medium rare ribeye that my wife ordered was cooked beyond medium. No offer made to replace steak which went unfinished. Disappointing!"

  • "Very nice food and service. It was busy but well run. Hard to beat a world class steak served in a plate of sizzling butter :-) Thank you Ruth Chris Team!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Bar service was slow. We were seated at a table right in front of the kitchen entrance. My guests were banged into four times. Lobster Bisque was burned (sent back), Ribeye steaks came out, one was perfect, the other was raw with no char on it (sent back)...the scallop dish tasted good. Crab cakes were ok, not delicious. The sides were average and seemed amateur. The floor manager was sorry and they comped two desserts. The desserts; bread pudding and creme brulee were delicious. Not the Ruth Chris I remember. The male managers were not engaging the tables. The one floor manager appeared to be there primarily to put out fires. I also noticed some diners were in shorts and t-shirts. No appropriate at this type of restaurant.Not Returning. "

  • "Relative to other RC's I've been to, this was dissapointing. Had a large family group of 9 for Easter Dinner and service was slow and some cuts of beef < than the RC standard. Would recommend Capital Grille in FLL if you want a true,m premium steakhouse experience, not here."

  • "Since I went to school in New Orleans I have been to many Ruth's locations including the original when Ruth was still alive. Each has always been excellent. At this location the staff is unusually good, so much so that one of their team members, Tony, is now the standard by which my wife and I judge superior service."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Perfect for special occasions! There is complimentary valet at this location which makes it very convenient. The service starts from the opening of the car door. Walking into the restaurant you can hear the sizzling of the 500 degree plates! The steaks smell amazing! I had the Chillean Sea Bass and my boyfriend had the filet mignon. There was a mistake when the steak came out but as we were eating a manager stopped by to ask ho0w everything was and we asked her about the steak being fully cooked or not. She realized the mistake and offered to cook it more. She brought it back a few mins later and it was perfect. Everyone at this place is amazing. They even walk you to the bathroom if its your first time there! "

  • "We wanted a great dining experience for our family to celebrate our son's 20th birthday and we knew this place would not dissapoint. Six of us enjoyed mouthwatering appitizers, amazing steak dinners with all the trimmings, and scrumptuous deserts, and all left extremely full! From the moment we arrived the service and attention was classic Ruths Chris, making for a wonderful dining experience. Will definately return again and again."
