    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Reservation/valet pleasantly handled. Seated with menus. A guy in a waiter's outfit popped up, stuck his hand in my face saying "Hi Steve, I'm so-in-so", as if I were seated at Sonny's BBQ. An unusual start for a chain I formally knew for its excellent service and entrees. Wait staff interrupted table conversation to announce various courses "were on their way", "almost here", etc.. When lobster tails didn't arrive with entrees blank looks and cya reasons proffered then much later overdone and tasteless tails were delivered with an out of place flourish. I ordered coffee and was told it wasn't yet time for coffee - at that point my wife grabbed my arm reminding me it's only a poor service. We passed on desert. I never did get my coffee."

  • "We we're in the mood for a great dinner, so we decided to go to Ruth's Chris.We weren't disappointed! The food was perfect as was Vlad our server. So friendly and accommodating. We felt like celebrities. My Bone in Filet was a perfect medium rare. Probably the best ever. We'll be back to Ruth's in Ft. Lauderdale soon!"

  • "Wonderful dining experience. The staff was attentive and the food was outstanding."

  • "So far this is the best steak I've had in Fort Lauderdale ... beats Capital Grille. Manhattans were $11 each. Wine $11 a glass. Wedge salad excellent. My NY Strip steak was 14 oz and had blue cheese on top $48 ... perfectly cooked. Chocolate explosion cake $10 excellent. $9. Will go again."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Took my family here expecting a great meal with good service and food. Totally missed that expectation - Started out with one of the cocktail glasses arriving with lipstick on it. Quickly replaced and assurance from manager that "I'll take care of you". Next the waiter poured water into a Vodka cocktail on the table. Again, quickly replaced with the same assurance from the manager. Main course arrives and shoestring fries and creamed spinach are only warm. The steamed asparagus is grey so we send that back. I looked at the bill wondering if the "I'll take care of you" resulted in any adjustments, but no. At these prices, I won't be back here or any of this chain. Ever."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We had the bone in filet. It was superb, tender, juicy, cooked to perfection. Our server Sherry was excellent. Cody packaged our left overs. Richard the GM stopped by to check on us."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I haven't been to a Ruth's Chris in over 15 years and this past trip was a bit sad. Celebrating Valentine's day at a small round table in the back corner of a room that reminded me of a nursing home. What?? Why not upgrade the inside so you feel like you are dining at a top notch restaurant. I think Ruth needs to visit this location. Capital Grill has more attentive servers than this location. Not impressed. I felt like I paid for First Class experience while sitting in Coach. Upgrade the restaurant."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Celebrated Valentine's day at Ruth's Chris and as usual, it was excellent. Great service, food was excellent and timing on everything was spot on. A+!!!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "As usual, the steaks were succulent and perfectly prepared. Sides however, were disappointing. Our waiter was personable and very professional but his support team fell below Ruth's Chris' standards. All in all, I will definitely return."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "They really show you how they appriciate you celebrating your special day with them. It was the best time of our life. It was our 18th year anniversary."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I haven't dinned at Ruth's Chris for years. After wanting to avoid the typical Valentine's Weekend hustle and bustle ambiance with set prices and menu options that aren't always so endulging, my boyfriend suggested we make reservations at Ruth's Chris Ft. Lauderdale. I can say that after all of these years, they still live up to their name. In a edition to their food being fantastic and consistent, the staff is always friendly, accommodating and competent. They have a variety of menu options but we decided to go with the dinner choices that include an appetizer, entree, side dish and dessert. My boyfriend and I look forward there again soon."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This place was borderline AMAZING! The food was delicious and steaks cooked and seasoned to absolute perfection! I highly recommend this spot for anyone that's special and deserving in your life. The best experience, our waitress Pam was susperb and knowledgeable and her assistant Willie (from Detroit) was a very friendly gentleman that kept us laughing and made us feel very welcomed and appreciated! My 1st dinning at this facility but surely not our last!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Good service, quality food, overall great dining experience!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had a late dinner the day after Valentines day, so I knew it might be crowded. There was a crowd however, we were seated quickly and the food came out on time. My only complaint is they seemed short handed. Out waiter seemed distracted, I figures since it was late, he was just tired a good time overall"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We arrived at the reserved time and got seated within 10 min, not bad for such a busy night. We were greeted by our server and manager and that's pretty much how it ended, server seemed not interested on taking care of our table, got our drinks(very good) and order, and did not see her again almost half way thru our meal (good as well) , empty glasses on table did not even offer if we wanted another drink. We did get a couple of visits from our buss boy who looked in a hurry collecting the empty plates. Not the experience that I expected from them. Again it was a busy night but did get to see how other waiters interacted with customers and our service was not even close on providing that type of service."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "They had a bunch of servers and back waiters but we barely had anyone check on us or wait on us. We were told multiple times by different people that we would get something, ie our drinks, and it would take forever to get to our table. We told our waitress we wanted a side to come out as an appetizer but it still came with our meal. Horrible service all around"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Everything was wonderful. Would highly recommend this location."
    Dined on 4/29/2013
  • "When I made the reservation I noted we were celebrating an 83 rd birthday. WOW did the entire staff make sure the celebration was special and memorable. The table was decorated and everyone we came in contact with including hostess, managers, servers offered their best wishes. The meal was outstanding as always. There is no better restaurant for steaks. Our server Tony made the entire evening one to remember. He is a true professional and the best in his trade. He even sent us home with a picture of all of us celebrating the evening. We go here often and with good reason."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Haven't been to this location in many years, but moderately disappointed with experience. Drinks were lovely as was calamari appetizer. When the meal was served, two of our side dishes were cold, the shoe string fries and the lobster mac and cheese. Sent the fries back, came back burnt. Did not bother sending back again, nor were they taken off the menu. The crab cakes were good, but my husband and our guest had the NY strip and said is was average at best. Ambiance at the restaurant poor, bright lights, very small booth - certainly for the price will choose Capital Grille the next time."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "I was pleasantly surprised by the steak and the accompaniments. Pecan crusted sweet potato is like dessert...Yum. Loved that you could get half orders on the sides. Steak cooked perfectly and was one of the best I've had in a long time. Usually steer away from chain restaurants but this one surpassed my expections and I will not hesitate to try other Ruth's Chris restaurants."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "My fiance & I made reservations for NYE as we wanted a nice night out. When we arrived for our reservations we were seated almost immediately. Our waiter was very knowledgeable & punctual & never left us empty on drinks. We both started w/the Lobster Bisque & it was good. Not as good as Council Oak, but it was very tasty. I ordered the Filet Mignon & my Fiance ordered one of the big steaks (I forget which one). They were both very tasty but my Filet did have a few chewy parts which is not normal for a Filet. The restaurant itself is outdated, especially the bathrooms. I was shocked when I went in to use the restroom & noticed how old it was! All in all, we had a nice dinner. But when craving a good steak, we will stick with Council Oak!"

  • "We love going to Ruth's Chris Steak House and find that it is consistently great, regardless of the location. We frequent the Fort Lauderdale location and can say that's our favorite. We've gone to most, if not all, of the other well known steak houses around the country and we feel Ruth's Chris is absolutely the best of the best."

  • "Always consistent. Cocktails excellent and consistent. Great steak cooked exactly as requested."

  • "Everything was AMAZING! We were celebrating my husband’s 40th birthday and when we arrived there was Birthday Confetti and a card on the table. The waiter was awesome (I think his name was Kyle) he was young but amazingly professional and polite. We ordered two of the three course meals and the steak was HUGE! It was fantastic! They gave my husband free dessert. They have a nack of anticipating your needs there before you even say anything! It was GREAT we will go back!"
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Yet again, when I needed a perfect place to entertain great friends, Ruth's Chris met the challenge. Steaks were out of this World."

  • "We had reservations at 8:30. We arrived at the restaurant at 8:20 and the Hostess informed us that our table will be ready at the time of our reservation. She was not very friendly and acted as if we arrived one hour early instead of 10 minutes early. So we went to the bar to have a drink. Bar was very full, standing room only, very slow service. Checked back with hostess and she informed us that there would be a wait for our table. Pretty sure she knew there would be a wait from the start. We were seated at 9:00pm. It was NYE, so we expected a bit of a wait and did not mind. Service in the restaurant was excellent and so was the food!"
