  • Becoming a Tuesday evening regular!

    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Since I have a regular Tuesday event in the area, it is so easy to stop in here for a quick bite before my get together. Quality food and service every time and the Happy Hour menu is great value, Perfect for an appetizer before a full meal or as a quick meal on the run before another meeting. The steak sandwich was divine as usual as was the great service from Meaghen and Heather. I'll be back again next Tuesday.

    Dined on 8/25/2014
    I enjoyed the classic menu with the Filet and Shrimp, Steamed Spinach and their seafood gumbo soup. The Filet as always was cooked perfectly and this is the first time I've had the gumbo. I understand why it is popular and regularly requested by other regulars. I upgraded to the cheesecake for dessert and expect that will be a regular decision I make with my dinners. The service by outstanding as usual. Heather, Meaghen, Charlene, Jenna, Jason and Stephen always do a stellar job and make me look forward to coming back.

    We've been away from Ruth's for a few months, but we returned recently, and it still deserves five stars. Food, drink, and service just can't be beat. Steaks are wonderful, and that chopped salad is the best. We certainly enjoyed our evening.

    I was surprised when two friends joined me here for Happy Hour on a Tuesday. We each had three different menu items from the Happy Hour menu and the ladies had the house Snap Dragon Cabernet and a Pomegranate Martini. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the ladies were very impressed with their wines. We discussed the wine list and were aptly impressed with the wide range of wines from great value lower price range end wines that provide quality as well as their more expensive top quality wines. Ruth Chris Winter Park does a great job of delivering value across their menu as well as the 5 star experience and top of the line dining experience. Service was excellent as well from Jenna, Heather and Meaghan per their usual super friendly service.

    We recently celebrated our 30th Anniversary with a very special dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Winter Park. Everything was superb from the moment we arrived. Our table was covered in rose petals, our server Natalia was spectacular in every respect, the food was amazing, perfectly prepared and presented with all the right touches. They even created an anniversary card from our daughter who thoughtfully treated us to drinks and a special dessert. We would highly recommend it for any special occasion or just to treat yourself to an amazing evening.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    David and his team did a brilliant job making sure all of my guest had a great time by providing 5 star Service and Food. Words that describe the experience include friendly and timely. David also took the extra step to call me on Friday night when the Happy Hours prices increased so I could make all my guests aware of the slight increase. Everyone appreciated that touch as well as David's visit to all the tables and guests. While service is suffering at other venues I visit, it's always a pleasure to come back here because David's team always meets or exceeds my expectations. Looking forward to coming back again soon.

    After pouring over the menu looking at all the choices, I ordered their classic menu with the Filet with Shrimp, Spicy Lobster Bites as an additional appetizer, I started with their Lobster Bisque and upgraded to Steamed Spinach as my side. A few of their staff had recommended trying the steak prepared Pittsburg style and it was great. I also upgraded the dessert and tried the Chocolate Explosion Lava Cake. I'm hopeful to see their Chocolate Mousse Pecan Dessert on the menu soon as I had a taste of it and absolutely loved it!

    I decided to stop in for dinner in the bar before heading to another event. Normally I try to be here when they open at 4:30 however I couldn't make it til about a half hour later. The bar was packed with no empty chairs or tables. I had a short wait standing behind a couple of friends who I had introduced to this venue and the Happy Hour experience. When I did get to sit down everything was top quality as usual. Great food and service!

    Great food as always and service top rate without missing a beat with new people in the bar area. Charlene continues providing exceptionally friendly service and Jana is a new star on the rise. I was originally going to come by myself however several friends are wanting to meet me there on a regular basis on Sundays so I expect that will continue. David remains my example of how a manager should ensure his team is performing at the highest of standards. I'll be back again, very very soon.

As usual, outstanding service, primarily from Heather although the staff who I know from regular visits were all very pleasant. I've already got three more reservations booked here over the next month to introduce friends as I know what a great dining experience they will all have.

    Dined on 7/27/2014
    This last visit the service wasn't as it has in the past. My group filled the bar area and meals were not delivered in the order of placement. Some people, including me, waited much longer to be served their meal (after ordering) than normal. Some people at the same table were given their meal much before others at the same table and others that ordered before they did. I realize we filled the bar area and there were a lot of orders, but the sequence of serving them should have been correct. My meal was ordered as Med-Rare and when it finally came out, it was well done. I ate it anyway because I was the last to be served. It was still good, but not as I ordered.

    I organized a Happy Hour event for a dining group and only had 8 people sign up the night before. The next morning I had 18 people signed up. I sent David (the GM) an email to alert him to the situation. Then when I had over 30 people show as the attendees brought guests, I was a little anxious that they would not receive the dining experience that I boast about every time I come here. David, Charlene and Meaghen did not miss a beat and all my guests were effusive over the evening. They too are Raving Fans who will be back!

    Myself and 7 of my good friends decided we wanted to treat ourselves to a NICE meal, and a GREAT time... Ruth's Chris didn't disappoint! I started off with the mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat, Amazing! Then onto the strawberry, toasted almond and blue cheese salad, again, Awesome. Then the Best part, New York Strip cooked to perfection, medium rare with a blue cheese crust.... sided with broccoli au gratin, and potatoes au gratin, (as you can tell, I like the cheese!) :) All of my guests were happy, had some excellent wine our server recommended. Had the chocolate explosion for dessert, then rolled my fat but to the couch! We will RETURN!

    I frequently visit Ruth's in either Dr. Phillips or Lake Mary. At this location, our steaks were overcooked and obviously sat on the plate for a long time before being served to us, the waiter didn't ask us to cut into the steak to ensure it was what we ordered (he took around 10 minutes to even come by and ask), the bar wasn't very vibrant, and the experience was just average. I won't be visiting that location again.
