    Celebrated our 29th anniversary! 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.

    As a Dr Phillips local & regular, this was a disappointment. I should have said something but didn't since we had a party of 5. My salad was sent back since it had bleu cheese-I wanted goat cheese. They didn't make a fresh one! They added goat cheese to it, so I didn't eat it. Very disappointing for a nicer end restaurant. My normal filet was smaller than normal & charred on the outside. The Au Gratin potatoes were not well done-like we asked. We specified the cheese to be crispy/well done. Maybe a new cook? Its not normal for Ruth Chris to disappoint. I should have said something to the waiter & manager. :(

    Used plates, beverage glasses not removed in a timely manner. No offer of additional bread / butter. Table top not kept cleaned of misc small items, ie swizzle sticks, sugar packets -- no "crumbing". What happened to the idea of a nice fresh fully iced glass of ice water to replace the luke warm water near the end of dinner? While a hostess (?) did stop by shortly after our entrees were served .. never di have a manager stop by to inquire of food or service satisfaction..?? No one from culinary stopped by to inquire of food taste/quality satisfaction..??

    Ruth's Chris is still in the top two for a great steak. The NY being my favorite. The one just the other night was about two inches thick. Probably the best sautéed spinach I've had in a while. Regarding servers, ask for the one with the Irish accent.

    Alexis our server was very nice, excellent customer service, the food PORTERHOUSE FOR 2 was cooked to perfection. Absolutely scrumptious and we agree that this was the best we ever had. The nice touch petals on table, dim light with candllelight lamp was romantic, if it was noisy the music dampened it. I had made the reservation thru OPEN TABLE and we arrived early and they were able to seat us right away. The dessert was the surprise we had already left no room for, but Alexis insisted and made sure we saw it and it was beautifully presented with the chocolate writing on the plate Happy 15 years anniverssary with a Chocolate almost mouse cake that was heavenly with a large delicious Strawberry.

    Ruth's Chris is my favorite steakhouse; I can usually count on their consistency in great food/service, but I was very disappointed at the Orlando branch. Our waiter forgot our appetizers, which can happen, but then I expect him to show more attention to make up for it. He did comp our dessert, but our refills for tea/water still took a rather significant amount of time. My medium rare steak arrived more medium well. And: I went to the bathroom, and both of the containers for TP were empty. There was thankfully a spare TP roll in that stall, but seeing as how the restaurant opens at 5pm and my reservations were at 6:30pm, I do not see how both TP rolls could be empty unless they just did not make the effort to check on bathrooms daily.

    We went early to beat the rush (5:15) and the place was almost completely empty. We ordered promptly, as we had another event to get to. Our food finally arrived at 6:40...and it was not exactly what we had ordered. After checking a few times and being told the chef "was making it perfect", we were already frustrated. I have no idea what takes almost 1.5 hours to cook when no one is at the restaurant. When we did receive our food, they made the wrong steak for me (a ribeye versus filet) and forgot my wife's side order (green beans). Our server apologized profusely and offered a free dessert, but it was too late. Very disappointed.

    Having dined in other Ruth's Chris Steak House we had very high expectations for this dinning experience. Unfortunately it feel well short of our expectations. Do not get me wrong, the food was good, but it was not as good as other Ruth's Chris Houses and certainly not worth the price. The disappointment was compounded by less than quality service. The service was slow and it felt like the waiter had too many tables to handle. He also did not have a warm and caring attitude in his service. Sad to say, but I believe this was probably the last time we will visit Ruth's Chris Steak House.

    Really looking forward to an anniversary meal here. We are a mixed group of agesand the younger members were asked for id when ordering drinks. We needed 2 forms of id as we are not US citizens which we didn't have so left us extremely saddened.When speaking to the manager he was loud and argumentative. He towered over 2 members of my party (female) and would continue to voice his point even when we walked away. It left a very distressing and unpleasant evening for our group! The food was no better the any other steak house and will probably never eat here again. We had a high chair in our party and the table was too small to accommodate it which was a little upsetting Anoverall bad night and hope others don't have these problems!

    The food was good, even though the steaks were overcooked. Edible but still over cooked. Staff agreed and wanted to "do something" for us;we declined. Waitstaff was friendly and prices were fair. However, the ambiance was more of a very efficient food factory than a fine dining experience. We would never go back.

    I only get to eat at Ruth Chris about twice a year for my birthday and anniversary. I never vary from the bone-in ribeye. Always perfectly cooked to order. The shrimp cocktail or crabtini are delicious and come with enough greens that we can skip a salad. The vegetable choices are delicious. I prefer the spinach au gratin. I was delighted to see lobster mac and cheese on the menu and had to try it. I was a little concerned there might be too much bite from the pepper but it was perfect. Great addition. Glad you got it right before adding it to the menu. I ventured away from my usual martini to have the blackberry side car. Loved the flavor. Gabe was our server, as he has been most visits over the years. He is wonderful.

    Went for our 5 year anniversary. Food was above average like most times we have been there. We got Bone-in filet (daily special) and Sea Bass for our entrees. We had a 7:30 reservation though and didn't get seated until after 8 pm, that was disappointing since we were starving! - but we did get a nice booth at least. Table service was good and attentive.

    Ruth's Chris used to be my favorite steak house. Their steaks had a very distinctive flavor found at no other steak house. Our past three visits we have experienced steaks with no distinctive flavor. They continue to serve an excellent prime steak but the flavor I go to Ruth's Chris for is gone. In my opinion they are in line with all the other top end steak houses now.

    We were in town to see Mickey Mouse and his gang and on day 4 got rained out. Since we spent most of the day in the hotel room, i decided to take my family of four to a nice steak dinner. The setting was nice, food was decent, service lacked severely, unless you ordered an alcoholic beverage. My wife and i noticed that several wait staff would constantly keep the alcoholic beverages filled and the rest of the tables sat and waited. Keep in mind this is a pricey restaurant and by default the wait staff inherit a nice tip. We have had much better service at chain restaurants though. Good luck!

    Food, service and atomsphere was ok. Kenny did a great job at relaying how things worked as far as a la carte, family sides, etc.. At first drinks took longer than expected. But Kenny explained the bar was backed up. We didn't mind so much, for we we're catching up with our friends. Apps were great, my Lettuce Wedge came without bacon, Kenny fixed the problem quickly and informed us they had ran out. We kept enjoying our experience. The only thing that bothered me was when the server had told us that they were closing soon and needed to get our order because the Chef gets cranky. I was very disappointed hearing this, once my Ribeye came out, it was overcooked and I didn't have the nerve to send my steak back as too not make the Chef cranky.
