Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "The best steaks ever! Great place to dine and celebrate a special occasion. We go at least once a month."

  • "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!!"

  • "Avery pleasant dining experience. I had mentioned that it was our anniversary upon making the reservation and requested a booth. 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!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Food was delicious and our server was pleasant The sides are a must. I ordered the Mac and lobster which was great."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "We are from Texas and experienced this Ruth's Chris 2 1/2 years ago. Could NOT wait to go back, it was that unforgettable! Took our family back just last week. Again, it did NOT disappoint!!! Can't say enough good things about Ruth's Chris, Sarasota! It's the little things that made it so extremely enjoyable.....waiters stopping to talk and joke with us, anniversary card and rose petals on the table, friendly valet drivers, etc. We just don't have that in Austin!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Requested to go to Ruth's Chris for our 20th anniversary, and was it special! They always have the best steak. And the sweet potatoes are to die for! After dinner we were presented with a special dessert, and there were rose petals on our table when we were seated. Awesome food, awesome place. Not cheap, but definitely the best there is."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "Waiter was overwrought, did not pay attention to our order. We kept having to repeat our requests and ask over and over for drinks, butter etc. It just made the evening unpleasant... We were so focused on the poor service, we couldn't really relax into our meal, We were looking for a nice leisurely evening of dining, instead we just couldn't wait to get out of there."

  • "Another grand time with grand food and service as we celebrated our wedding anniversary."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Service was outstanding! The food quality did not meet the expectations that we hve experienced in the past while dining at your facilities. Perhaps it was a result of the rushing of the holiday season. Specifically the quality of the 12 oz. Ribeye steak; the cooking was perfect but the meat was unusually tough."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "My wife and I were very happy and pleased with the steaks we got. However, we were a bit disappointed in some of the other food items we ordered. I got the barbequed shrimp and it was good but way too mild. I could barely tell it was barbeque and absolutely no spice. We also got the lobster macaroni and cheese and it was kind of bland. My wife was very happy with here surf and turf (two medium sized lobster tails and a filet). The only other glitch was that they brought out our main courses while we were still eating our appetizers - a big mistake for such a fine restaurant. Our waitress was excellent. She was very attentive, friendly, and helpful. Overall a good experience but don't go unless you plan to get a steak."

  • "First time at Ruth's Chris, and was surprised that the strip steak was so fatty and gristly. Very tasty, but a lot of work to separate the meat from the "cut-a- way parts". Show stopper was the sweet potato casserole side dish - the best we have ever had- yummy. Service top notch."
