Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "Even though it was Mother's Day the restaurant was full but not overcrowded. The staff was quick, friendly and efficient, and the Manager took time to come by our table to give my wife a rose for Mother's Day, and a coupon for our next visit which will be soon. "

  • "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."

  • "The music from the bar was excessive. Our table was in the middle of the two entrance.. I will never sit at that location again. I will leave and go elsewhere if ever forced to sit there. Sea Bass over cooked steak requested Medium Rare my daughter had to send it back because it came out Rare."

  • "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."

  • "One of only a few Florida restaurants that serves real Midwestern beef that was corn fed. Sea bass was also excellent with interesting piccata sauce. This is an expensive restaurant but the quality is excellent. Staff was sensitive and accommodating for food allergy."

  • "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. "

  • "Nick and Brittny gave us over the top service without bothering us. This was a surprise for my wife who has never been to Ruth Chris before. 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."

  • "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."

  • "My husband and I chose to have dinner on a Saturday evening in the dining room. (Normally, we just grab a quick bite and drink in the bar area) I will have to say that the crab stuffed mushrooms were bland at best. The crab meat stuffing did not have any lump crab at all. The bread that was served was terrible to be honest. Really? White so called French bread that wasn't warm. My lamb was decent but for the price; really wasn't worth it. The steamed spinach was uncreative and again, nothing to write home about. I will not dine at Ruth Chris' again; not even at the bar. I can think of so many more, reasonably priced, amazing places around Orlando to have dinner."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "At $90 a plate I expect at a minimum "good" food. I didn't get it. The salad was wilted and soggy. The filets were not the best cut--half fatty (although cooked perfectly). The French fries were barely warm. Coffee also not hot. Our server was very nice, but that only goes so far. Decided, since we were never going back, not to complain when (who we think was) the manager came by to ask how our meal was. What was to be done at that point? Probably should have. The whole thing was just disappointing."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "Was not overwhelmed, I had great expectations for Ruth Chis Steak House. The service was not what was expected from this caliber restaurant. Asked for more bread and it took over 20 minutes then came during the dinner course which no one wanted at that time, Ordered a second drink from the Bar and it also took a very very long time. A little confusion over the desert, took three of them home to find one order was incorrect and had paid the upcharge. The food was very good but probably will not go back"

  • "Been here several times and is always a favorite. They blew it on New Years Eve. Food overcooked...I mean, cooked to death. Not at all what I expect when I spend that much for a steak. Shrimp and scallops were overdone as well. Looked over at several tables and saw many hockey puck filets that night."

  • "Not as good as some - slightly Dodwy appearance - almost run down. Stacks of chairs in the passageways, Food - not to usual standard. Run out of Lobster and Lobster tails tough and very salty and served cold. Steaks were OK though."
