    We always look forward to having our special occasion dinners at Ruth's. The calamari and lobster bisque never fail to get the taste buds going. The steak, lobster, and crab entrees are always wonderful (this time though the steak was more done than than medium-well). The Creme Brûlée and Bread Pudding always leave us satisfied and ready to return. Thank you.

    We have dined at Ruth's Chris Steak House on many occasions. We are always happy with the service, food and ambiance. However, we were quite disappointed on this last visit. They have changed the bread selection. The bread was always quite delicious. We were very disappointed with the current choice of bread. It was not up to the usual standard. Please bring back the old one.

    You know that dinner out where things goes wrong, but you laugh so hard and have an absolutely fabulous time? That was my 50th birthday dinner party with my family, and the tremendous staff at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Ft. Lauderdale - our server Stefani, manager Fallon, and staff member Vlad (from Serbia!) all made it a funny and special night that I will never forget. The staff took excellent care of us - corrected the mistakes, gave complimentary desserts, and even took a picture of us all and printed a copy for each person to take home. The true test of a restaurant is not when everything goes well, but how they react when things go wrong - which we are all human, it happens - this team was just first class and super friendly!

    We went to celebrate both my and my brother's birthday. Service was great. Attentive but not overbearing. Food quality was also very good. My only complaint is that I ordered my steak Pittsburgh medium rare and is was overdone. It was done over medium. I co u kid gave chosen to send it back, but I chose not to. I would surely go back. From the valet to our servers, everyone went out ofc t heir way to make our party feel welcomed and appreciated.

    I was expecting an adult dining experience. However, we were surrounded by young families with active children. Half the guests were dressed in cargo shorts and t-shirts. The service was average and for the price of the food I expect excellent service and some attention to seating guests so that families with loud children are in one room and adults looking for quiet conversation are located in another. The experience should be exceptional when dinner and drinks is over $100 per person. This was only pleasant because of the company at our table. I doubt I'll be back unless it's at the bar for happy hour.

    So much for Business Casual. It looked like I was at an open air restaurant at the beach. Most people were in shorts and T-shirts. To top it off, there was a crying kid that was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. You won't see me again. :(

    Out of the 100 or so times we have frequented this establishment, they really dropped the ball this time. My wife order of the menu the Sea Bass and after getting our appetizers and a long pause (we had now been there an hour) they came out and said they did not have anymore Sea Bass! Weird that there were only 3 tables occupied when we got there at 6 pm- so they were sold out already on a menu item! So my wife order the chicken which she usually loves and it was dry and over cooked. All the rest of the meals at our table we fantastic- when we finally got them. They tried to make amends with free desserts, but they were not that great. What happened to our favorite special occasion restaurant? I hope this is not a trend....

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
