    Eager to experience Orlando's finest restaurants during the Magical Dining month, Ruths Chris was my first choice. I dined with a group of friends. The experience was outstanding ! Attentive service, flavorful, perfectly cooked food, great atmosphere ! I returned with my family, wanting them to enjoy a similar treat ! Dining at several participating restaurants during the month, Ruths Chris was #1 ! The waiter remembered me, and treated me like an old friend. The manager paid us a friendly visit both times and we had a nice chat, although the restaurant was packed ! My second choice had been the Capitol Grill. Their filets were good, but not as flavorful, the service was efficient - not friendly and the shared desert was disappointing.

    It has always been our favorite restaurant to visit. Your meat dishes are to die for. Melt in your mouth. This visit we took our dear friend Linda, for her Birthday, and it was fabulous as usual. Waiter was attentive, wine list was great, the food always comes out hot. I could taste the creamed spinach now at 9am in the morning. Just great!

    we made a reservation for magical dinning, first the server tried to convince us to go with regular menu, when we said no the level of service changed, she was serving next two tables and compare to them we didn't receive the same level of service! as soon as we sat down she said she would be back with a basket of bread which we never got! food was great though.

    Very pleased with our dinner that night. As the night went on, it seemed to get a bit noisy which made it difficult for conversation within our group. Everyone was pleased with the service and the presentation of food brought to our table. A single comment from all was the sides were not warm when served with the entree. The garlic mashed potatoes were just barely warm. Creamed spinach was was just warm also. Other than that we all had a ver enjoyable experience there and several others at the table will be returning.

    We arrived 10 mins early and was told by reception come back closer to our time! When we went into the restaurant as soon as we mentioned magic dining they could not get the menus out of our hands quick enough. They lost interest in us. We asked for a second beer and waited 15 mins for it having to ask again for it. We got offered more bread, it never came. The water was warm ergghh. The waiter said we encourage shareing your meal. Share what! We got a steak and garlic mash or you could have cream spinach. There was barely enough for a woman never mind a mans appetite. I love cheesecake but not this one it and was not creamy. The waiter gave us the bill as he gave us the desserts. Ignored us as we left our table.

    We Used the Orlando Special Offer which was wonderful. Choices were exactly what we wanted for every part of the meal. Very friendly waiters. The food was so nice starting with the bread and ending with the dessert. We thought our 6 oz. Filet Mignon was so delicious and tender. Actually thought the beef was so much better than our Ruth's Chris Restaurant in Wilkes-Barre, PA at the Mohegan Casino. It was a terrific start to our vacation.

    We tried the Magical Orlando menu. Gumbo was great, fillet overdone. The evening was spoilt by an arrogant server called James who seemed to hate his job and his customers. I'll stick to Capital Grill & Morton's, at least they make you feel special for supporting them.

    Kevin was amazing! Our table was set up for my birthday, which was very nice. Kevin went over the menu with us since it was our first time at Ruth Chris, He was very on top of keeping our drinks full. The wine list was good but a little overpriced for the options. I have been to other restaurants with the same wines and they are half the price. The food was amazing but do not think we will be returning unless it's a special occasion due to the price of drinks, the food is worth the price but we are drinkers and like to drink with dinner.

    This is my third visit and I can truly say that this restaurant exceeds expectations in all areas. I absolutely love their steaks. I brought home some of my filet mignon for breakfast with eggs the following day. The steak was as tender as the night before. I am looking forward to my next visit.

    My wife and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary on Friday at Ruth's Chris. Everything about it was outstanding; especially our server Nia. She went above and beyond. Rose pedals on the table, snapped a picture with their camera & my wife's iPhone and had "Happy Anniversary" etched on the dessert plate with chocolate syrup. It was also quite evident that the serving crew there works as a team. All the fundamentals; never saw bottom of water glass, each course served timely and just plain good customer service. Well done! Highly recommended.

    We drove up and saw the free valet parking. However, there was a spot right near the door, so we saved ourselves the 2 bit tip, and walked in. We arrived about 15 minutes early for our reservation, hostesses assured us that the table would be ready in 15 minutes. 30 minutes later we were still waiting, and, after checking with the hostess, she thought we were dining at the bar (we were just sitting there staring at her for 30 minutes). After that, the dinner was perfect. The wait staff was very attentive. We looked around (mainly to see who had just arrived in the stretch limo) and a waiter was at our side in seconds. He assured us that he would let us know if Jon Stewart arrived. Food was excellent. Steaks cooked perfectly.

    We have been to a Ruth's Chris previously in MD and had an exceptional meal. This was a meal on the Orlando Magical Dining plan, which I thought was to help promote a restaurant to people who wished to try it. My seafood gumbo was served cold and had to be sent back. The filet was small, the portion of creamed spinach which usually is huge was small and also not extremely hot. The dessert was a small as the desserts that Season's 52 sells for $1.99 each. I think Ruth's missed a good chance to impress diners who have never been there before, such as the guests we brought with them. None of us were impressed--service was slow, food had to be sent back to be warmed, and nothing with the meal was impressive. Disappointing

They welcomed and congratulated us several times and made it special with many touches: rose petals on the table, and a special dessert unexpected and brought to us after dinner! And a keepsake picture of us that they took with their camera and printed out for us. Dinner! - the steaks were the best and cooked to perfection! Everything was delicious! Service was excellent, always there before we needed anything, but not disruptive to the romatantic mood... In short, it was a perfect night!

    The tuna appetizer was amazing (if you like Tuna I would recommend ordering it). The steaks were fine. We both ordered the Filet and one was cooked much more rare than the other. The two side items we ordered were the sautéed spinach and a loaded baked potato. The spinach was laying in a pool of butter (which is fine but I chose the spinach for something healthy). The potato was also resting in a pool of butter. Being 7 months pregnant means I went home very swollen from all the salt. Overall the ambience is nice. Our waiter had 2 other large party tables so he not as visible as I would expect at a higher end restaurant. He did get a lot of help from other servers so we never ran out of water or wine.
