    Had a great dinner with friends. Feels much newer than the downtown location, just missing the view of the river. Service and food was exceptional! We had two members of our group get held up at work and when they came in (they were happy to just sit at a different table without us) the waiter instisted that we all be joined together at a larger table. They were more than accomidating!

    Is it me or is Ruth's food slipping a little bit? The service is always solid, but there seems to be a slight loss in quality of food -- both in execution and ingredients.

    We have been here a number of times usually for special occasions. This was to celebrate a birthday. Of the six people there, at least four commented that the food was just average or worse-the sea bass was almost tasteless. When paying that price, we expect better. Also, seems like the noise level was higher than when we have been there before. The server was a little over enthusiastic. Almost had feeling anxious to "turn the table". He also badly messed up the checks and had to redo all three checks. For the price, we are probably going to go the the Club, TPC or Capital Grill in the future.

    Our recent visit to Ruth's Chris/Ponte Vedra was a relaxing evening, filled with many extraordinary pleasures! The bartender gladly made a delicious pear martini, even though it wasn't listed on the menu. We both chose the Ruth's Classics Menu, which included a choice to salad, individual side,main course and a small dessert. My chopped salad was over the top, and just the right size. We both ordered the 6oz filet with shrimp a d although we ordered "medium rare to medium," both filets were overcooked. Rather than make a fuss, we just ate them. That was the only flaw in an otherwise perfect meal and evening.

    Our family enjoys an annual birthday celebration for two of our family members with out of town guests. Ruth's never fails to satisfy, but it really seems like there is new talent in the kitchen. And it's great! Our meals were spot on and complimented by outstanding service from Jason. Everyone's meal was cooked perfectly and we had a wonderful, memorable meal.

    My son and I truly enjoyed dining at Ruths Chris again. I personally enjoyed the Caesar salad which was excellent!! Brought back memories of the days when my husband (deceased) and I would celebrate our wedding anniversaries @ the Ruths Chris in Indianapolis, Indiana. Thank you for a lovely dining experience....

    Overall a little disappointing. 1. one of the waiters placed spoons on the wrong side of the soup bowls. 2. my cut of filet was average quality. 3. the bill was brought before we were asked whether we wanted coffee or after dinner drinks. 4. food was served at a very fast pace. Felt a little rushed.

    My wife and I went over our self-imposed food intake limit but it was worth it. Started with the calamari (nice mildly hot Asian sauce) and finished with the 16-ounce rib-eye and potatoes au gratin. The steak was cooked exactly to my liking, served on a sizzling ceramic plate. It was the most delicious and tender steak I have ever had. Period. The entire staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. What a great night!

    Ruth's Chris never disappoints you. Their focus on quality is obvious. The only thing to remember is that you should be hungry or prepared to take part of your steak home with you. Their strip steak is huge.

    Never have any problems with the food or it's presentation. However our waiter left a little to be desired. We requested two separate checks and we requested a black napkin for a woman who was wearing a black suit. That didn't happen. We had to ask a busboy for the napkin (which he got) and when the check arrived, we had to ask him again for two separate checks. I tried to explain to him that my steak was not done the way I ordered it and I had to exchange my steak with my husband (he is not as fussy as I am) and the waiter just blew it off. Not happy about that at all. Everyone at the table thought he was a tad on the curt side. I would certainly go back to the restaurant but I would not sit in his station again.

    My girlfriend and I both ordered the bone in filet, med-rare. I ordered mine finished Pittsburgh style. The chef over cooked my steak to well done and served it. It took over 20 minutes for my steak to arrive with the correct temperature. My girlfriend was finished with her steak, when mine arrived. $300 for 2 people and no comp of a drink, desert...nothing. Our visit before that, we ordered lobster tails as appetizers. They weren't cooked all the way. I'm finished with this Ruth's Chris. III Forks is a much better option.

    Sadly... although we were told to expect "sizzling" platters and were told the plates were hot there was no sizzle and the plates were not hot. We were a party of 7 so I cut them a little slack and everyone was hungry and willing to forego sending the steaks back. My New York Strip had an unusually large piece of gristle running down the center. I know. It happens. I've been to this restaurant in Ponte Vedra several times and generally the steak is much better than the one I had this time.

    Nice spot for a special occasions but a bit noisy which makes quiet talk difficult adding some nice sound absorbing panels would help and also allow for a little more privacy. Service is excellent our server Drew was diligent but not intrusive. Best creamed spinach, au gratin potatoes could use more flavorful cheese sauce. Steaks were perfectly cooked but seem a little lacking in flavor, maybe seasoning with salt and letting sit for several hour before cooking would help. The hot plate seem a little gimmicky and make adding sides to plate difficult.

    Drinks, apps and sides were good. My steak was overdone, which was very disappointing. Not quite bad enough to send back, but it did effect my enjoyment. This is an unforgivable sin for a high end steakhouse. My wife's fish was undercooked and was taken off the bill. I doubt we will go back and they are less than a mile from our new house.
