    We have had the opportunity to dine at this Ruths Chris many times. The food is consistently good and the restaurant has a romantic ambience. The staff was attentive and friendly. Our server recommended the broiled tomato to be topped with parmesean cheese - delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant. We will return.

    It is always an enjoyable experience to dine here. The food, the service and the ambience is a "cut above". My only complaint would be the disrespectful way that some of the guests dress when in a fine dining restaurant. Perhaps they should eat at a fast food joint instead.

    Everything was absolutely perfect from the rose petals on the table to dessert plates with "Happy 40th Anniversary" written in chocolate! Lori was an excellent server--very attentive, but not overly intrusive. Steaks cooked to perfection and extremely tender. Side dishes were wonderful and desserts spectacular. Highly recommend for your special occasions!

    Good, not great Seating for two in middle of main room makes for rather loud surroundings -- if you are a twosome, recommend you ask for the little recessed 'alcove' booths that line the room - definitely better seating around the outside of the main room. Service excellent. Food okay - filet was rather bland, surprisingly so - my date and I both reached for the salt immediately and concurrently, no seasoning should be required, imho. Sweet potato casserole was amazing, but little pricey of a dinner to have that as a highlight. I'll go back, but it's low on the rotation at this point. Eat a lot of filet cuts...probably least flavor of any in recent memory...and not that tender, actually had to work at cutting into it...odd.

    When reserving, I made mention that we were celebrating our 5th anniversary. Upon arrival to our table, there were rose petals scattered on the tablecloth. A nice touch. I was greeted by name once the server arrived. She quickly got our drinks to us and promptly took our order. The food? Amazing. I had the petite filet and I dreaded taking that last bite knowing it was the end of goodness. After dinner we were told that we'd get a complimentary dessert. It came out with "Happy 5th Anniversary" on it. Another nice touch. Our server then came to our table with a camera, snapped our photo and then printed it out and gave it to us in a nice card. We've decided to make going to Ruth's Chris a tradition. They made us feel incredibly special.

    My wife and I were celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary and were talked-into making the 40 minute drive to Ruth's Chris Steak House. We are both glad we did. I cannot say enough about the quality of the food and service. I had a large rib-eye and my wife had a filet; both were cooked perfectly and served piping hot. Our waiter, Adrian, was a delight. He was very warm, but professional and offered great suggestions from both the menu and wine lists. Our water glasses were never less than half-filled and fresh bread was delivered time and time again. The atmosphere was very comfortable, while still formal in setting. The staff arranged fresh rose petals on our table and even took a little pic of us to take home as a gift...PERFECT

    This particular restaurant is one of their best! I have been to other Ruth's Chris and while they are always good, this one is especially good. The bar area is outstanding and very comfortable. The food is terrific. The dining room is very quiet -we actually could hear each other without raising our voices. The tables for 2 along the wall and housed in little covered coupoulas (sp?) are very intimate and romantic. Service is the best too. All-in-all, a great place to eat!

    This is the third Ruth's Chris I've been too - and I will be back! The atmosphere was unlike the others. Everything décor wise was completely top notch. I would easily venture to say the best décor in the Lake Mary area. The food was excellent, and they have a killer happy hour deal in the bar area! I can't wait to get back to this Ruth's Chris.

    My husband took me here, we have been here before, to celebrate my birthday. We checked in and went to bar to wait on our table. At the bar, we sat there at least 10 minutes before any of the 3 bar tenders waited on us, but not after waiting on others that came after us. That was disappointing. Then waited another 5 minutes before receiving our drinks. We had to go check at reservation our self to see if table was ready. Finally after 10 more minutes of waiting they came and got us, to our surprise the dining room was not busy, and many booths were open and we could have been seated early or on time. Our waiter was nice, but on many occasions, we found our self having to flag him down. Food was excellent. Service needs work.

    Had to pick a decent place to treat some of our family friends and this turned out to be a great choice. The food was great, the service was great. Strange tho, the restaurant is very quiet, maybe 5 tables were filled, otherwise the place was pretty empty and quiet. The food was still amazing, the steaks were great, the sides were great and the kids at the table couldn't get their hands off the calamari so its a great place for a date, a family dinner and to simply enjoy food.

My wife was blown away by the service, the ambience, the rose pedals on the table. She was enjoying every minute of it which is what our Wedding Anniversary is all about. The food was amazing.... Really can not come up with anything that would have improved the ocassion. My wife is already making future plans to go back with friends.

    I have dined here many times. The new corporate gluten free menu published in FEB 2014 needs many revisions. It is filled more with what you cannot have than what you can eat, and the pricing is not clear. Most things ordered gluten free were up charges. At least there were items in all areas that were GF...my husband also enjoyed all his selections. I did relay my corns and opinions to the MOD.

    So, I caveat this review by saying that I am a red-meat lover, as are a few members of my family. However, two other members of my family are not. While we have pined to go to Ruth's Chris for special occasions as a family, we have always been rebuffed until this time. To spare the details, all members of my party enjoyed the ambiance, service, etc - 3/5 of our entourage were quite pleased with the dining end-2-end (appetizer through entree), while the other 2/5 ordered other main entrees or stuck to salad and sides. Long/short, they were not impressed when you equate the cost-value and thought that there have been other venues that offer consistently better food across the board. Needless to say we wont be inviting them anymore :-)

    This was our first time dining at Ruth's Chris Steak House. The service was superb. The steak was out of this world. Very pricey but worth it. I was only disappointed that the side dishes were not of the same quality as the main steak dish -- they weren't bad, but lacking in comparison. Quantity is another story. Portions are large.

    We wanted it to be a special night and it was. It started with rose petals on the table. Several members of their staff came to congratulate us on our achievement of 48 years. The wine selection list was expansive and we each felt we had chosen one of their best. The ceasar salad was perfect and not overwhelmed with dressing, the filet mignons were out of this world and the multiple desserts were decadent - as usual. We've been to several R. C's in several states over the years but this one, by far, is the best managed of them all.

    Dined on 1/12/2014
    The dining room has nice ambience - widely spaced tables, high end décor, etc. Our waitress was friendly, but intermittently absent for long periods, such as when she forgot the anchovies for my wife's Caesar, said she'd be right back with them, but took so long my wife almost finished the salad before the server's return. On the other hand, drinks were refilled at just the right time. Appetizers & mains were solid, but nothing out of the ordinary. Desserts were a major disappointment, from the stone cold "warm bread pudding" to the choc. cake with a liquid center (still looking for that liquid center). Both seemed of the pre-made let's heat it up variety, although someone forgot that last part. Overall disappointing.
