Ruth's Chris Steak House - Ponte Vedra Beach
Not perfect, but they really triedWhen one goes to a steakhouse like this, the one single thing you expect to be correct is the temperature of the steak. For some unknown reason, it took three tries to get a steak past medium rare/rare to a simple "pink throughout" medium. To be sure, we even confirmed what "medium" meant when ordering. Telling us after the fact that "pink throughout" doesn't really mean "pink throughout" was not particularly helpful--when we asked up front...the first two tries were very rare and a red medium rare respectively. After three cooking attempts, the steak while now pink, was tough and dry....They were friendly and apologetic and comped the steak and some other upgrade charges, but the guest of honor ate mashed potatoes and soup for dinner...6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect celebrationA group of 5 people celebrating a graduation. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. Although the restaurant was very busy, the service was outstanding and the food prepared to perfection. The wine recommendation was excellent. Two managers stopped by during our dinner to make sure everything was in order (and it was!). I wish we may go more often.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedAbsolutely the best steak anywhere -- so good I don't even want anyone to talk to me while I'm enjoying it! We laughed as we realized we were all unconsciously saying "mmmm" with every bite! Outstanding service, warm atmosphere. You can never go wrong with Ruth's Chris --- never!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat everythingFood is always delicious. They have best service ever. I could dine here all the time not just special occasions. Great appetizers and drinks. Yummy!!! The best bartenders are at this location!!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial DinnerWe celebrated our Anniversary at the restaurant, and we were impressed by the food and the service. Since we generally share an entre at this type of restaurant, the server split our filet and lobster tail for us at table side. We highly recommend Ruth Chris and we will return frequently.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steaks in townRuth's Chris method of quickly cooking steaks at a high temperature gives the steaks a wonderful flavor. We shared the porterhouse, and it was juicy and cooked just the way we like it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day LunchQuality food with excellent service. It was a great experience for my family.

We had eaten at this location on numerous times and can always count on Mr. Battah to be attentive to our needs. Our waiter, Shane, was also very professional - allowing us time to enjoy our evening but always close by to insure our needs were promptly met.
We will be bringing friends in May to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary because we know Mr. Battah and the wait staff will make it a special occasion for them.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect DinnerRuth's Chris offers great food (steak, lobster, chicken, seafood) and has THE best service of any restaurant I know of. It is simply top notch and I enjoy it each and every time I go there. This time we had 3 couples and we all had just had a great time ... good food, good wine and good friends.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent and High QualityAlways high quality, always dependable Ruth's Chris. They consistently deliver an upscale dining experience whereve you may be. I do, however, like the new menu options as they are expanding the offering and getting a bit more creative.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBring back dress codes!This has nothing to do with the restaurant, but I wish it would. Too bad they don't have a dress code. Nothing worse than dining in a fine place like this and some guy comes in with plaid shorts on! In the past I've seen t-shirts and shorts, thongs on men's feet....just NOT what you'd expect in what I've always believed was a classy place. However, in today's American social culture, I guess looking like a slob is politically correct. Otherwise, we love it!!!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFlexibility is always appreciatedFlexibility is always appreciated by a diner. Had party of 8, but only 4 showed up. No problem. Great food and ambiance. Excellent experience.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHad some difficulty with theHad some difficulty with the general manager over a non edible filet. Questions condesending and inappropriate for the venue. Have always loved our experience until today.2/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, but watch those allergies!We've been to many Ruth Chris Steak Houses over the years & havent visited this one in some time. They easily accomodated our change in reservation, & request for a booth. As expected food was great from start to finish with new seasonal vegetable soup, lobster, ribeyes, and desserts. Only negative-a diner with allergies couldn't enjoy any fried foods (fries, onion rings, etc), as all are cooked in same fryer with shellfish. They graciously comped a dessert for him. Unusual that a chain of this caliber doesnt have separate fryers as Capital Grille, Outback & even McDonalds, Burger King, do provide a safe and separate frying environment. Certainly frustrating experience when paying $100 per diner. Hopefully they'll rethink that.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
