Ruth's Chris Steak House - Sarasota
Great Annivesary!My wife, daughter and I were vacationing and decided to go somewhere very nice for our 30th wedding anniversary. They greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" and decorated the table with a few Rose Petals. The ladies really enjoyed their cocktails and I enjoyed a very good New Zealand Savignon Blanc. Wife and daughter has the filet special with seafood trio. I had the strip. All was delicious and executed to perfection. We were treated to a complimentary desert trio that was great. The manager caught us at the door on the way out to make sure we enjoyed our dining experience.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperior ServiceThe staff is simply the best, from the hostess to the valet to the wait staff. They are attentive but not overbearing and they know how to pace a meal properly. We happened to be there on a night where a large party was celebrating a birthday, and although the group was a little loud, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food have alwaysService and food have always been top-notch at this Ruth's Chris. The steaks are uniformly very tasty as are the sides and the wine list should satisfy the most discriminating afficionados. What can I say....it's a terrific steak house. And, oh yes,Kristen is the best hostess in Sarasota!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for celebrationsWent for husbands birthday- he'd never been. We lucked out by picking a perfect time- early (5pm) the restaurant was quiet and we received all of the wait staff's attention. We were seated in a semi-private room tucked away from the main seating. The food, service and environment were superb and the hubby thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He also raved about the left overs the next day!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent!We can always count on a great meal at Ruth's Chris. The whole experience is what we expected from this restaurant. Our server was excellent, which added to a wonderful evening.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial attention was givenSpecial attention was given to my partner and I as soon as we walked in the door! Special birthday greetings were extended, service was prompt and helpful. Everything was delicious! Steaks prepared perfectly. Side dishes were generous - enough to share between 2-3 people. A special birthday cake and chocolate treats were presented at the conclusion.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceAmazing service but the food was just OK considering the price.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMManagement needs to be engaging.Had a reservation but decided to stay in the bar area due to a basketball game.
Peter was an excellent waiter, but it was clear that he was overwhelmed with how busy it was. More help is needed if you are going to continue the bar menu. Older folks come and stay and take up all the seats...don't have cheap prices because you will end up with those kinds of patrons and you will lose the other people that love Ruth Chris because it is a classy place. We will continue to come because the food is excellent! Another point that I might add is that the Manager of the restaurant did not come over one time to see how we liked our food.2/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
