    Went to Ruth Chris for the first time for our anniversary. We had an isolated little table decorated with some rose pedals. We started with soups that were served very quickly and then had our delicious steaks and side dishes. The steaks were cooked perfectly and so tender. Ended the dinner with chocolate sin cake...yum!! Was also sent home with a printed out picture of us! So sweet that they do that to help you remember your special occasion. Can't wait to dine there again!!

    I finally found time to take advantage of the magical dining experience, choosing Ruth's Chris LakeMary. The restaurant is superb, the staff knowledgeable and attentive. While the building is new construction, and lacks some of the architectural charm of other locations, it is consistent with it's surroundings. The atmosphere in the bar was amazing as the final minutes of happy hour wound down, and then moving into the dining room, the elegance continued. We opted to share the salad and gumbo. Which was a perfectly sized. The warm bread was excellent, but the gumbo stood out. The steaks were typical of Ruth's Chris, perfectly cooked. Great dinner

    2nd time at this Ruth Chris Steakhouse. Was disappointed with the offering of the Orlando Fixed Menu for $33 p.p. Portions & quality of the food especially presentation was sub-standard for a high end steakhouse. Server was good except that he didn't deliver a Grey Goose Martini as ordered. It was grey goose vodka in a tumbler & missed true taste of a real dirty martini. $14 for that was overpriced. Draft craft IPA for almost $8 per 3/4 pint was also overpriced. Bar was very crowded & noisy (what bar isn't) but dinning room was quiet.

    My wife's steak came out rare. She asked for medium well. After she cut the steak, they took it back and re-fired the same steak. It came out correctly cooked however we felt many of the juices had run out. I thought a steak house of that caliber would have fired a new steak.

    Restaurant was beautiful and elegant. Sever could of done a better job. As soon as he knew we were there for the Magical Dining Experience his attitude changed. There was not much to chose from the menu. The selection was soup or salad and filet or shrimp. Compared to the other restaurants, you can tell that the person that made the menu selection didn't put much elaboration. The soup didn't have shrimp. We mentioned it to our server and he didn't bother to change the soup. My filet was over cooked. The server didn't even bother to make it right. The manager didn't stop by our table to see how was our service or experience. Server made us feel like we didn't belong there. We won't go back to that particular location.

    We took a couple to dinner after one of our seminars and had to have an early dinner. The manager seated us even though we were 15 minutes earlier than they normally start seating. The wait staff was very friendly. Several of us chose the Classic menu which allowed us to have our salad and main dish with a vegetable and a dessert. Everything was delicious! This is a fairly pricey restaurant, so be prepared for your wallet to take a bit of a hit!

    Another great Ruth's Chris meal. It was Labor Day night so there were not a lot of people. The dinning room with its huge red chairs was very comfortable and also very attractive. A little St Supery wine, a strip steak, a filet and a couple of sides. Also the crab cake appetizer was excellent. Seems like every Ruth's Cris restaurant is different and the steaks can't be beat.

    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.

    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!
