Diner Reviews
  • "Our experience was good, didn't realize we had to call ahead 3 days and specifically ask for the desert mentioned on-line, that was disappointing."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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."

The hostess, the team, who executed as the teMs donon New Orleans, all brought me back to the original Ruth's, never makingus recall we were in a Chain...!!!!! Excellent service, perfect food, great wine and fun!!! We will be back;)"

  • "If you like steak, this is the place. My wife and I both had the petite filet and it was cooked to perfection. The steaks came out sizzling on the plate. Nice ambiance and the service was excellent. I can honestly say that I've never been disappointed at Ruth's Chris."

  • "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!!!!"

    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My dad wanted Ruth Chris for his birthday dinner & he said it was the greatest birthday dinner he's ever experienced in 53 years. Ruth Chris was simply Amazing! I felt like it was my birthday and all I did was make the reservations. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable! Our server was Robert and he was awesome! 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."

  • "We usually dine here a few times a year and everytime we do it is great. We have dined at many high end steak places and Ruths Chris has the best steak in my opinion. The service is always top notch as well!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Typically service is always good...but tonight we sat in the bar area...and LOVED the attention and service we got. Calamari was excellent and a nice portion for 2. Great wine list. 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."

  • "We enjoyed our birthday dinner @ Ruth's Chris...food was wonderful, cocktails well done, service impeccable. Only problem is there was a leak from the ceiling into the dining room...disappointing...didn't let it ruin our evening, though."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "Our dinner was just excellent on all levels. The food, service, noise level, ambience were all just very good. The food preparation was excellent and on a busy holiday, that often is not the case. We haven't dined there for quite some time but will make it a point to change that in the future."

  • "Have gone to Ruth Chris all over the country and have never been disappointed, great!"

  • "My husband and I wanted an enjoyable dinner with our sons and their girls. We had a couple of gift cards for Ruth's Chris that we had been saving and it seemed the perfect time. We were given a great table in a corner that was great for visiting. Our waiter did a great job - took good care of us but didn't become bothersome. The food was great - not one complaint from anyone:) Ruth's Chris is on the higher end but it was worth it for a special evening."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "We took our daughter here for her birthday. It's a very nice setting. They offer a special dessert for the guest of honor. My daughter and I had salmon, which was excellent. My husband had a ribeye, which was fatty. He was disappointed. Next time, he'll order the seafood. The flour less chocolate cake was like a chocolate puck of butter, ok but not overly delicious or exciting. It was served with creme anglaise which was great"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We enjoyed a wonderful evening out celebrating. The drinks were strong and well made, the apps were delicious....they truly have the BEST Lobster Bisque and Cesar Salad anywhere in Tampa!!!! The bread is always hot and delicious...and holds you over until the main dishes arrive. It was busy that night, so it did seem to take a little longer than normal, but it was WELL WORTH the wait. The filet is simply mouth watering....just melts in your mouth and the flavoring is out of this world! I used to get it "Oscar style" but decided not to, and WOW it was so amazing. Always cooked perfect, nice size filet, even for the petite filet I ordered. We will back, I hope soon!"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "All of our fillets were cooked perfectly and were absolutely delicious. The service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We'll definitely return."

  • "Had such a lovely Thanksgiving Day Dinner. Going to make it our new family tradition."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "The service was mediocre. Certainly not what I would expect for such a well known restaurant. We had at least 3 servers. We did not order a salad, but were delivered salads. I had to tell the server they were not ours. I then ordered for my wife and I. I ordered the filet mignon medeim rare for myself and medium well fpr my wife, With a baked potato and sauteed mushrooms . When the food finally came, the waiter only brought one potato and one order of mushrooms. He did apologize and did not charge for one potato. We will not be going back to Ruth's Chris , nor recommend it to anyone."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "After having been here several other times and having good service I was disappointed greatly yesterday with the service and quality of the food. The blue cheese crust is no longer the delicious topping it once was, the filet was not marbled it just had fat all over it and some gristle, and when the food was over cooked no manager cared. The server assistant was awful. The only highlight was Joey. He was very pleasant and genuine. Unfortunately, I'm just going to continue going back to Flemings or Berns (which is actually, shockingly, a better value for my money) and will not return to this establishment."
    Dined on 12/15/2013
  • "We have been there several times for special occasions, and each time has been worth it. Will go back again."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "2 people eating small filets with a total of 2 lobster tails, 2 small appetizers and 3 drinks came to over $200. The food was average, maybe a little above average but certainly not worth the price. In the future we will stick with the others where at least you get what you pay for."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "This was our second time enjoying Ruth's Chris on Thanksgiving. Some if us enjoyed Turkey, while the non meat eaters had excellent fish (the Sea Bass was cooked perfectly and well seasoned!). The service was excellent as you would expect and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience, especially the "no clean-up" part. At the end of our meal we were given a nice special leftover bag with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy, and cranberry sauce, even though we ate all of our food, what a nice surprise! We definitely recommend this for next year, or anytime you want a great meal wi excellent service."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Our experience for Thanksgiving Dinner was awesome. The food and service were exceptional. We were visiting from out of town and would recommend Ruth's Chris to anyone wanting a special dining experience."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "It was "ok". I mentioned today I went their to a co-worker. He used to work across the street. He said the steals at the penthouse were just as good. He would watch the same truck deliver steaks to both places. However, the service was impeccable which is a good reason we went."
    Dined on 11/27/2013
  • "We had great food and exceptional service by our waiter Robert. First time for our grand son and he really made him and all of us feel special."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "As a rule, dining at any Ruth's Chris is a sheer delight. I've eaten at many locations across the country and candidly, this location is my favorite of them all. The service impeccable, the food is heavenly and the ambience is very warm. Even with several large groups in the house, the entire staff was superb and the management was on top of everything. It was a special evening for my family and the Ruth's Chris delivered another first class performance. There are many choices but this place never fails to deliver. If you have a client that is "hard to please", they will only find good things to say about their evening at this restaurant. The bar area is great for cocktails or an after dinner port.."

  • "This is the first time my husband and I have dined at the Tampa Ruth's Chris but not the first time dining at the restaurant on a whole. We had another restaurant in mind for our 1st wedding anniversary celebration but ultimately decided for here. We are so glad we did. The food was excellent as usual. The cocktails were divine. I had a blueberry mojito that was to die for. Lastly, our server Joe was spectacular. He was attentive and knew the menu very well. We will definetly come back to Ruth's Chris in the future."

  • "We had a nice evening and our meal was good. Music in the bar was pretty loud but the bar area is nice. Our table wasn't ready so we had a drink. Our steaks were good but very hot due the plates being so hot."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "My husband and I went here for his 72nd birthday and the food and service were impeccable. He had the cowboy steak and I had the salmon, both were perfectly done. The sides of creamed spinach and sweet potato casserole were also excellent. Our server Rick was attentive and very well versed, he was able to answer all our questions concerning our dinner choices and even anticipated some questions. By the way, my martini with blue cheese olives was also delicious."

  • "As regular diners to Ruth's Chris and this particular restaurant, I must say that I was very disappointed in our trip on Saturday, Nov. 2. Saturday night was not one of those occasions... The food was good (although my wife's steak was not prepared as expected) but the flavors are consistent. Our issue was with the non-existent service that we received from our waiter. The table next to us was VERY needy and thus caused our waiter to forget about us. This was noticed by another waiter who helped him out at the end. When it started with 10 minutes for someone to come to our table, we knew it might not be a good night. Slow service all evening made for a very slow dinner that may cause us to choose elsewhere..."

  • "We made reservations for our 11 yr anniversary. From the time the hostess checked in to our server to the manager....everyone wished us Happy Anniversary multiple times, plus they took a photo of us and also brought us a special dessert plate that again wished us Happy Anniversary,.. plus our tables had rose petals on it... Food, Drink, Service, and Ambience were A+"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "The table that we were given was very close to the other tables. We couldn't have a private conversation, in fact we ended up talking to the people beside us. Food was great as usual, but was hoping for a quiet dinner, not here. Also, had to wait quite a while for our dessert."
