    Heather did an awesome job and it's not the first time she served us. It made celebrating girlfriends birthday special. Loved the desert that said Happy Birthday Jaleen written in chocolate. Fantastic steak, great sides and lobster very good. Yes for sure we will be back.

    lack flavor. Party members didn"t view presentation as a plus as "spitting" juice was not appealing. White blouse stained and also, wedge lettuce was pale and lacked freshness. Time to try another Tampa steakhouse, only went as client suggestion. Doesn"t easure up to the better steakhouses in major cities.

    Traditional decor, piano playing Downton theme music, stylish cocktails, a warm welcome, the waiter Riccardo looked after our table with polished style and knowledge , my wife opted for the Ruth Classic rib eye off the Fixed price menu , avoid it go straight to the main Menu and choose as you go , it is not worth it the steak was not great. Our orders were excellent and worth the price , the spicy lobster 1st course was excellent , the T-Bone and NY strip just perfect

    This is my third experience dining here and it did not disappoint. The service was perfect. We did not feel rushed at all. we had a very nicely paced meal. The food as always was just delicious and a good value with their new Classics section where they have a one priced meal that includes a starter, side and a dessert along with your entree. You can still go all carte if you want, but this worked great for us.

    I must say our server Chun was awesome, also the hostess who sat us was super nice so thank you. My steak was average, was expecting better as I eat in Ruths Chris in NYC a few times but I was disappointed in the quality of the meat. The Caesar Salad was good and the side of cream spinach was good, just left kinda disappointed after the steak. Service was awesome good job Chun.

    I took my wife for her birthday. I got a rib eye that cooked to perfection. My wife got the filet with shrimp. It was all delicious. Both steaks were among the best I've ever had. When we tried to order 2 sides each, the waiter informed us that the sides were family style. I appreciated that an one side each was more than we could eat. The potatoes au gratin were as memorable as the steaks. I would definitely recommend Ruth's Chris to anyone who wants the highest quality food and service.

    Classic steakhouse is what you get at Ruth's Chris. Steak made to absolute perfection. Whole lobster perfectly cooked and served. Excellent mushrooms both as a side and stuffed with crabmeat. And the wine list is truly noteworthy - great choices for every budget.

    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.

    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.

    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 :-)
