  • "I really enjoy coming to Ruth Chris steakhouse. The staff is very accommodating. The food is always excellent the waiters or are very tentative. I have to say this is one of my favorite restaurants in Sarasota."

  • "The service was great but the food was marginal for the price. Tough lamb chops and mediocre filet. Very surprised to see ball caps and shorts as the attire of choice."

  • "We had a great time. Great food for everyone except for one gentleman who ordered an appetizer as main meal along with the others for a main meal and it was cold. He was disappointed. He is the one who recommended and paid for the group. We still had a nice experience. Thank You."

  • "Sevice was not rushed. Ribeye steakes were cooked as requested and were fabulous. Great creamed spinach. Appreciated the complimentary "anniversary" dessert."

  • "This is a favorite in Sarasota. The food is outstanding, and the staff is wonderful, they always makes you feel welcome. Its a great Fathers day dinner but you better make reservation early as they will fill up quickly. In the past my wife and I have celebrated several special occasions here. On our anniversary we arrived to find rose petals on our table and a card signed by the entire staff."

  • "The waiter was great, but too many people asking to clear the same plates. Took away bread plates, we were still using."

  • "Steaks are the best I have ever had, and I have traveled to 35 countries over 30 USA states. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Service here is professional and friendly. You are welcomed and made to feel comfortable. The overall experience is well worth the price, although it does not fit into the average budget for more than once every couple of months. The quality is the best, you can get a steak for less, but it will not taste as good. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "This place was a gem to find, I took my date here to have a romantic dinner and was surprised to find how professional it was. We had a small chat with the waitress as to what to pick and she was very helpful on helping us decide in what we had. The restaurant itself was vibrant and professional. Even though only some people dressed up. "

  • "We have lived in the Sarasota area since 2006. Never tried Ruth's Chris so for a special occasion we decided to try it. Steak was not cooked correctly and very oily tasting, Lobster mac was terrible full of awful green pepper taste, lobster tough and over cooked. Service was decent. After we brought up the issue we were comped $76.00 for a $270.00 bill (2 adults, 2 children) and we received free coffee and a desert. I will say they really tried to make it better but at that point it was too late. We will not try this again. Too expensive for low quality food. "

  • "Our service was outstanding and the food was excellent. We arrived about 10 minutes early and had one of the first reservations of the evening. the hostess was gracious and let us sit inside while they finished opening. I would recommend this as a great place for that special dinner."

  • "I had a wonderful dinner last week with my husband at Ruth's Chris Steak House. I had the rib eye and it was delicious. My husband ordered the veal chop and was also fantastic. I can't wait to go back. PS They make wonderful martinis!"

  • "My husband and I have celebrated two special events at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Sarasota. We were pleasantly surprised both times! The service was impeccable, the food was superb, and the ambience was wonderful. The staff went out of their way to make both occasions memorable. Our table was decorated with rose petals or glitter, plus a greeting card signed by the entire staff. A complimentary dessert was offered to us on both occasions. Our waiter even took a photo of us and presented it to us in a special card, at the end of our dinner. We have never been pampered like this at any restaurant before. We can't wait to go back to Ruth's Chris for our next celebration!"

  • "Enjoyed a lovely dinner at Ruth's Chris Saturday night..... food as always was delicious, (no matter how hard I try and no matter which steak I buy, it never matches the quality at Ruth's Chris!) The lobster bisque was superb as always and we finished our meal with the chocolate explosion! Service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening! Can't wait to go back! Excellent food and service and love knowing you can count on this when you dine here!"

  • "Great Ambience, My food was ok and I could not seem to keep my waiter to be my waiter. Every time I needed something I had to ask someone else that was around. I had a hair in my salad and he did not even apologize and the manager did not even come over and see how things were. Was looking to make this place my new hangout but I think I would pass on it "

  • "Shrimp, escargot, Dover sole and the wine was fantastic. The wait staff was delightful and very accommodating. This was our second time eating here and we will be back. "

  • "We had a reservation but opted to sit in the bar that night. It feels more intimate in there. My only disappointment was the number of small children eating in there as well. I feel like a bar should be an adults only experience."

  • "We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary at Ruth Chris-what an experience! The maitre'd wished us Happy Anniversay, led us to the table that had rose petals strewn on it and a anniversary card signed by the staff. The service was perfect, along with the food. Our dessert was complementary, then our picture was taken and presented in a frame. Wow-they know how to make you comfortable and appreciated. Would go back again..........."

  • "We have been going to Ruth Chris for the last 14/ 15 years. It was always my favorite place....until now! The sad thing is, we were celebrating our anniversary. Those hot, hot plates they speak of....not so hot this time. Both myself and my husband had to send our food back, to be cooked more. When my salmon came back, it was still not cooked enough and the plate was not even hot. The cheesecake I took home, had fruit on top, suppose to be fresh fruit but honestly the fruit tasted bad. I don't know if we will be going back, sooo sad!! Such a shame!!"

There were rose petals and a note signed by the staff wishing us a happy anniversary on the table when we arrived and then they brought us a free dessert of our choice. The steaks of course were wonderful."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 50th anniversary here recently. The experience far exceeded our expectations. We arrived at the restaurant and were promptly seated at our reserved time. Our table was decorated with flower petals and a beautiful bouquet of flowers our children had arranged for us. A bottle of champagne was table side, provided free of charge by the restaurant. I can't say enough about the service. We had at least five or six waitstaff attend to us during the evening. There was not an empty glass or used plate to be seen for more than a minute. The moment something needed attention it was attended to. The food was excellent. The portions of the side dishes were generous and shareable. Give this place a try!"

  • "wasn't as stand-out as I would hope for the price. Everything was good not great. The exception was the Bread Pudding, which was outstanding!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This is a poor excuse for a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. The food was pedestrian by any means. We have dined at the same name restaurant in Grand Rapids, Michigan and the food was by far superior. The server recommended the steaks be ordered at a temperature one lower than usual. What a mistake.! The medium came out rarer than normal. The chicken tasted like it had freezer burn. The manager was non existent except when to come over to tell us to move our car since it was too close to another patron's car. In actuality the old woman was parked over the line and had plenty of room to back out. The issue here was how the manager handled the situation. Get it together RC Sarasota."

  • "This location is well over due for a makeover inside, I felt like I was in a average restaurant for the prices I was paying. Nothing nice of an ambience, their bar looked and felt like an airport bar, just to pass time before you enter the bla dining area."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "It was my first time there, it was very busy being Valentines day and all but everything was timely. We had reservations, got there early (30 mnts prior to res) the seated us within 15minutes, quiet corner as we asked. The servers were friendly and prompt, especially surprising since they were booked (not one empty table). The server was nice, recomendation was very much appreciated. We had an excellent evening, food was tasty, desert was delicious. Would go there again. As my husband puts it. "Worth the price for such good food"."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Even though I made this reservation over 90 days early, we still waited over 30 minutes for our table. Also, lack of having some type of dress code takes away special occasions such as Valentines Day. Customers were wearing cut of shorts, blue jeans, flip flops and others in coat and tie."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We are regulars at Ruth's Chris for many reasons. The food, drinks and service are just as consistently excellent as could be. Never a poorly-cooked steak, always a good pour and an original take on a classic cocktail, and team service that is efficient and friendly. The staff operates as a well-oiled machine from front to back."
