We were seated next to the kitchen so that was quite noisy. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious! I appreciate the way my husband was treated acknowledging his birthday as soon as we were greeted!

Steaks did not sizzle like they used to. The bread was Luke warm.

Food was Ok but not what we are used to getting from Chris’.

We had a very enjoyable time at the restaurant celebrating a birthday. The food was impeccable (as always) and the staff was attentive without being intrusive. Ruth's Chris is always on our short list when we want to be made to feel special on a night out with friends and family.

I'm sure the entire menu is great but I had the petite filet and it was amazing and my friends had the filet and lobster tail and the stuffed chicken. We ordered the lobster mac and cheese and brussel sprouts as sides and it was all delicious! Desserts were amazing too and very shareable. I only wish that there was a location new to where I live as I visited the Destin location on vacation. This was easily one of the best meals I have ever had.

We have been here 3 times. We love the service and the food is great. This time a couple steaks were ordered as medium well and came out charred and dry. Unfortunately we needed some A1. However, steaks ordered as medium were great.

I had asked for their "Best" table and they gave us a table that the waiters and people walked by all the time so I was very disappointed since it was the first time my mother would be there (she's 81) but the food was outstanding!!

We arrived at Ruth Chris at 6:45. It was not crowded at all. We sat for 25 minutes and no one ever came to our table. Several waitors walked by but none waited or checked on us. We decided to leave. We spoke to a female manager near the front door about our experience and she did not seem to care. We left. It was a very disappointing evening but mostly because the manager did not seem to care that we had been ignored and that we were exiting the restaurant disappointed with the lack of service. We will not go back Ruth Chris in Destin.

I have been to 2 other Ruth’s Chris. One in hard rock hotel and the other in mobile. This is by far my least favorite. I always order the petite filet. This one had a grainy texture unlike the buttery texture im used to. The veggies, appetizers, and desserts were good. The noise level was a bit loud since there was a baby in the section next to us that kept screeching uncontrollably. On an expensive date night with many our own kids at home, this was not the setting we were looking for. I would suggest putting all small children in the same room to allow guests that are looking for a night away that “quiet” they so desperately need.

Decent place, everything was given as advertised. 500 degree plate and all. Our server was really good, he entertained us with some interesting stories of his upbringing, and was happy to answer questions we had. The steak itself was decent, I felt it was a bit over cooked for a medium rare, but he pointed his little flashlight at it and told me otherwise. So I didn't really press the point much.

We did have a lengthy discussion after about it though... but that was after the steak, so I don't know. In hindsight I really wish I would have sent the steak back but that's really hard for me to do.

They had some concert or something going on outside, and every time the door opened it blasted into the restaurant. That was bit annoying.

I sort of felt like we were 'casted' back. I was watching other tables get spiffy decanters with their wine, and we did not. The appetizer escargot wasn't very good at all. It felt like it was sitting for a while. The plate that held the snails was scalding hot, but the cheese on top was cool, and a few of the snails were cool. Not sure how that happens. We did send that back though.

The steaks themselves were good, first time having aged steak. Not a fan, but I get that is just a style preference. They weren't very juicy, and he said that was a product of the aging. I prefer my steaks more rare. I did get a cool tip to order my steak Pittsburgh Rare next time! Excited to try that.

All in all I wouldn't recommend it if you don't know what you're getting into. If you like aged steak, you'll love this place. Otherwise you're better off elsewhere.

We lived in Niceville for 29 years and Ruth's Chris in Destin was always our go to resteraunt for special occassions. We return to the area frequently and consider each trip back a special occassion and always include dinner at Ruth's Chris as part of the celebration. The food and service are always 5 star and we particularly enjoy our visits when Michael J. Thomas is providing music. If you are loooking for a great dining experience on the Emrald Coast look no further than Ruth's Chris! We love the place!!!

Noise inside the dining room was unbearable. The gentleman with Saxophone visiting tables was unwelcomed and quit obnoxious. Entrees were served to the wrong diners and determined to be incorrect halfway through the meal. The food was remarkable and breathtakingly presented.

I've wanted to eat here since 2013 when I met my wife... I had a bad divorce and her house had burned right before we started dating, so I never really had the funds... I can't wait to eat there again! A beautiful woman like her should eat at a beautiful place like this! Thanks!
