    Had not been to Ruth Chris in some time. Food was good but not outstanding, especially for the cost. Server forgot our appetizer even after being reminded. Wine took 15+ minutes to get to table. salad course was 45 minutes after we were seated. We felt we can get better quality food at several other Jacksonville restaurants and certainly with better service. Obviously it will be some time before we return.

    We had dinner for our anniversary, the service was exceptional and the food was very good. The fillet and lamb chops were cooked perfectly as well as the lobster. Or server wisely brought to our attention the tarragon leek butter the chef was using on the steaks that evening. We got it on the side, the leek was very strong, glad it was on the side. The salads we fresh and well portioned only comment was one of them called for blue cheese, but it tasted like goat cheese, not a big deal if you like goat cheese. The lobster Mac n cheese, was very tasty but appered to be bowl of macaroni with cheese and lobster pieces scattered on top, not the traditional casserole consistency.

    2nd dining visit in a week here - Unusual but we were invited by another couple and never say no to Ruth's Chris. Again it was excellent. A tad better earlier in the week. Requested light dressing in chopped salad and it was drenched required send back and fellow diner asked for broiled tomatoes with steak and received sliced cold tomatoes under his steak required send back to kitchen. We did not have one of their seasoned waiters that night taking our orders. A key at RC is having one of their longtime experienced career waiters.

    Although RCI restaurant was slow for a Tuesday evening, the dining room was dominated by groups of business folks enjoying chatty dinner at this central spot. We were a group of 4 enjoying a corner window table with sweeping views, top waiter Jeremy, there are numerous great highly trained waiters here anticipating your every need. Chopped Salad tops, Petit filet perfection, fancy mushrooms, enormous and flavorful baked Idaho - chocolate bark, always great, never disappoints.

    Every time we go to Ruths Chris we say 'we need to remember to come here more often'. Maybe they should advertise? We LOVE it when we actually make it to them....just forget when we're going to our 'usual places' on weekends. The food is ALWAYS impeccable! Service is just the way we like it -- attentive, nice, makes us feel special; Great drinks. Overall awesome experience...every time.

    This was my second visit to this particular Ruth's. And I must say that the food was much better the first time. Though the cocktails are still superior. My Salmon was way under cooked and not seasoned well. My asparagus was blad cold. On my next visit to Jacksonville I'm sure that I wont be back at Ruth's.

    We like excellent quality American food that we grew up with best of all. The steaks at Ruth's Chris can or can almost be cut with a fork. The flavor is unparalleled and no other steakhouse suits us as does Ruth's Chris. We have been to 23 in the US. The hot, crusty bread is so satisfying and the side dishes are varied and delicious-especially the creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin in our opinions. No, we can't eat like this every day and it's not heart healthy. But, if you want a delicious food with excellent preparation and taste, you can't beat this. How much grilled chicken breast and broccoli can you stand?

    This was my first visit to this particular Ruth Chris (I have been to the one in Orlando a few years ago). I was w/7 other family members. We were all celebrating my parents' 56th Wedding Anniversary. The staff made the occasion a memorable one. There were fresh red rose petals scattered in the center of our round table along w/a card signed by all staff members on duty wishing my parents a Happy Anniversary. Everything we ordered was so delicious. My parents even received a special dessert for them to share that had a single lit candle & chocolate syrup on the plate that spelled out "Happy 56th Anniversary". It was such a wonderful night.

    This location is in the Crowne Plaza Hotel across the river from downtown JAX. River view is great, ambience is very good, waiter was efficient, courteous and amusing. Wine (Novy Syrah) was pricey but well worth it. The only disappointment was the meat. My lamb chops were a very generous portion but unevenly cooked and not seasoned well. My wife's filet was not as juicy or flavorful as one expects from a big league steak house chain. A la carte sides were presented as an afterthought and were expensive. We will definetely give Ruth Chris a second chance on the entrees, can't fairly judge based on a single experience. P.S. Do stay at the hotel, it is newly renovated, comfortable and relatively inexpensive.

    We're not regulars unless you count special occasions. Had the prix fixe meal 6oz tenderloin, 5oz lobster tail. Server recommended medium rare on the loin - Way under cooked! Rather flavorless. Had to scrape off the garlic topping which overpowered the steak. Flavor of lobster tail was mediocre at best. Would not order this again. Side dish of creamy spinach came warm but cooled quickly. Did the up-charge on the desert to crème brulee. Not worth a $4 up-charge. Just run of the mill. Great location for a special occasion. Would not make this a regular spot. Ruth Chris does not have the franchise on beef tenderloin. For a real experience in beef tenderloin, try the Canadian restaurant at EPCOT Le Cellier. OUTSTANDING!

    Great meal , as you would expect. The Corn Chowder was flavorful and full of corn, shallots and bits of bacon. The broth was creamy but not too thick. It was just right. The caesar salad was fresh and the dressing had just the proper acidity and a touch of anchovy. The steaks melted in our mouths. Filet Mignon served on a plate (that must have been 5,000 degrees) was cooked to perfection. Tender, moist and juicy with a brilliant red center. The Creamed spinach was wonderful, as was the au gratin potato. My first time to this Ruth's Chris and it is certainly up to the standards of the rest of the chain and the many other locations that I have visited in the past. Loved it!
