Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I had a lovely meal at Ruth Chris for our Wedding Anniversary, everything was perfect. One criticism, wish that they would not let people (particularly men) wear shorts and T shirts in the restaurant, it brings down what we think they are trying to achieve here - elegant, fine dining? It was Saturday night and we were dressed up and people came looking like they just got back from a theme park. I know this is Florida but come on guys. Other than that we thought the food was excellent and our server (Louis) superb."

  • "I took my 10 year old daughter here for a date night because I had been traveling and hadn't had some quality one on one time with her. The staff was very polite, extremely professional and did a wonderful job of making her feel special. The food was excellent and very consistent with other Ruth's Chris' I have visited across the south. I would highly recommend the restaurant here in Tampa."

  • "My dinner was great as I had the petite filet, however my husband was extremely disappointed with his steak. He had the special blackened ribeye and it was so rare I was surprised it wasn't mooing. He should have sent it back but he didn't."

  • "We were seated in the lounge area because my hubby was wearing his cowboy hat (which he wears everywhere!). That was fine, except the noise level was sooo loud that I couldn't hear some of the conversation at our own table. Ordered the filet medium rare and it was almost completely brown in the center. A few trace markings of pink. Very disappointing for such an upscale place. Probably will not go again."

  • "Recommend Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for an outstanding menu with oodles of choices to select from. The dinner 'packages' were perfect. The food was delicious and the wait staff extremely helpful, well prepared and friendly. Location is convenient to where we live."

  • "Our dinner was to celebrate both 49 and 29 year anniversaries. When I made the reservation I was clear this was an anniversary celebration. The mask and service were fine but I kept waiting for the anniversary recognition. .. nothing. Seems the comments were lost from Open Table to the restaurant. Very frustrating. My suggestion, double check with the restaurant directly for special occasions. The manager was gracious but what could they do after the fact."

  • "My son chose Ruth's Chris for his 17th birthday dinner with family. There were five in our party and the service started out wonderfully. However, it dramatically slowed as the dinner progressed and it honestly took close to 20 minutes for our server to bring us the bill. Other than that, our food was very good and overall experience pleasant :-)"

  • "Although the service was a tad slow, the food was perfect. The steaks were cooked exactly to order and the sides were delicious. Our wine paired nicely...the meal was great!"

  • "My kids and I took my mother here for Mother's Day. It is a treat for us to go to Ruth's Chris as it is pricey and not convenient to our house. We were treated nice and each given a rose. Our server was very attentive and humorous. I was disappointed however that my $40 steak was filled with fat and gristle and over cooked. My son's came nearly raw. I was served a lukewarm baked potato which they took back and heated. Both my son and I were turned off by the steaks and ended up picking around the rest of our food. Normally their steaks are so delicious and tender. Very disappointing especially for the price we paid."

  • "We went as a party of 13, which included 6 kids. Service was excellent. We had a team of 3 headed by Gregg! All dishes were excellent from apps to dessert! Of course everyone's steak was delicious! Thank you for helping us celebrate birthdays, communion, Prek graduation and a new business!"

  • "Food was amazing, but the service was out of this world. I had my 14 year old and 6 year old with us and the staff treated them like kings. Our waitress was very helpful to our 6 year old. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. I highly recommend the New York Stripe and the Cheesecake."

  • "I'm a regular customer because of the quality of the steaks and service. Not this time! I order a full size Filet; routinely ask them to butterfly-filet and cook to order. In the past, they always come through as requested. This time, it appeared they picked the worst piece of scrap I've ever seen; completely laced with grissle, and tried to pass it off as a prime cut filet. I sent it back and the second attempt presented was a cut that looked good, yet was blood-dripping red inside (I ordered it "hot pink center - medium") and a sharp-ended wooden skewer was hidden inside the cut! The third try was finally presented as ordered. And this was only one of the dissappointments of the night. Probably won't be back any time soon. "

  • "Typically I stay away from "chain" restaurants as I feel they have no personality and get all their food items from the Sysco truck however I was quite happy with my visit to Ruth Chris. Our waiter, Austin, was very knowledgeable and attentive. He recommended many menu items as well as being honest about what items were not so popular. Often the waiter only says that everything is great or recommends the most expensive items. I could not give the food an "outstanding" only because I need to save that for truly impressive "one of" creations however the service was absolutely 5 star. "

  • "We indicated on the reservation it was for an anniversary dinner, and when we arrived, we had rose petals across our table! Our server, Maria, greeted us with a welcoming smile and wished us a Happy Anniversary. She took our order and came back promptly to check on us throughout the entire meal. Maria was extremely friendly, warm and overall made our experience wonderful from start to finish. The filet's were cooked perfectly, still sizzling on the plate when they arrived, and very tasty. The au gratin potatoes were a little different from the last time we ordered them..but still very good and cheesy. I tried the Sangria, which is made in house and it was delicious. The entire meal from start to finish was mouth watering and wonderful"

  • "After much debating on which stake house to have dinner at we chose Ruth Chris over Charley's because we had never eaten at Charley's and did not want to have a bad meal tonight, so we went with what we were familiar with having never been disappointed at Ruth Chris. After our meal we thought we should have given the other stake house a try. My son's fillet had to be re-turned THREE times to get the desired temperature (medium). Each time the waiter apologized, but still this should never happen when you are paying that much for a prime cut of beef. By the time the steak was cooked the ends were beyond well done. I expected a visit from the manager to at least offer to comp a desert, but was never visited by the manager to apologize."

  • "We always dine at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for most special occasions, anniversaries, birthdays etc. While dining there, you are always made to feel special the moment you are greeted by the hostesses. We always expect and receive great food but on this occasion there was a manager - maitre d named Tony. He just took this dining experience over he top. His goal was to make you happy no matter what it took. Great personality, makes me want to dine there on a regular basis. Thanks again Tony, this Mother's Day was sooooooooo special, thanks to you we all left feeling great."

  • "My family and I went to dinner to celebrate my husband's business success. Even though we were unhappy with our table placement (in the middle of the room it felt like) we still made the best of it. The drinks were strong, the lobster bisque was very tasty, the server was very attentive, and the filet mignon is still the best I have ever had! We opted for the mashed potatoes this time, and they were delicious too! Overall, the food was outstanding as well as the service. We also appreciated the special attention our daughter received from everyone...extra cherries...fresh baked cookies from the chef personally....and of course the best filet she has had ever had! We highly recommend Ruth's Chris and it's our preferred place to dine at."

  • "I made reservations through open table. Everything went smoothly. I love the convenience of this online service. I want to acknowledge the phenomenal service from Our server Joey, and his helper Brian. They were to notch in service and attention to detail. We were greeted by the General Manager, Jim and had a table visit from the chef, George. They were ensuring our experience was a great one. We ordered the steaks, of course. My filet with lobster tail was amazing! My partner had the ribeye, which was also mouthwatering delicious! Our dinning experience was pleasant, enjoyable and memorable. This restaurant is to be commended for the 5 star excellence in service. They obviously hire top talent employees. I would recommend!!!!"

  • "The food was excellent as usual, however they had added patio tables for Valentines Day and the restaurant was over crowded and very noisy. For what one pays, ambiance is just as important as the food and it was not the typical Ruth's Chris dining experience on that night. We were a bit disappointed."

We enjoyed Ruth Chris immensely! I can't wait to go again!!!"

  • "This was my first time at the restaurant and I was very happy with the experience. As I wanted for my date at the bar, there was a live piano player and very courteous bar tender. The specialty drink list pulls in a number of well known spirits with a small twist from a Manhattan, a New Fasioned, to thier Bees Knees (a nicely balanced tequila martini in a nut shell). After being seated, I found the menu a touch shorter than I was expecting, but then again, I was only there for their steak selection. The prime rib was amazing, although it was served on an extremely hot plate which I believe continued cooking the cut past med rare to more of a medium temperature. I will order rare the next time I go."

Steaks perfectly cooked. Brussels sprouts were AMAZING! Even if you don't like them..you should try. We have certainly eaten at better Ruth Chris's...but you never get a bad meal here."
