    We had a family dinner after Thanksgiving to celebrate our last evening together. Service was outstanding and the food was incredible. Steaks cooked perfectly and and so delicious. We also had the special, Venison, which was to die for! We loved every minute of it!

    Our night out at Ruth's Chris was excellent. We were warmly welcomed; escorted to a romantic booth (my husband's birthday was the occasion); the service was perfect (thank you Kyle) & all the others were too. Our steaks were the best ever, the salads, the sides, and the desserts were all great.

    service was good, food depends on what you order. One of the dishes was very salty the other good. pulled chairs out to sit and they were full of crumbs, not a very good start. Restaurant had a burnt cheese odor not very good for premium restaurant.

    The food was amazing. I had the grouper & crab and it was awesome. We shared the escargot and that was also good. The others had steak. Wine selection was great. Our server was very busy so a little delay but not bad. It was fairly loud in the restaurant but not too bad. It is very expensive though so you get what you pay for. In my opinion, the potato or vegetable should come with the steak or seafood. Potatoes, rice, etc is all soo cheap but they charge so much extra for them.

    Over all our experience was lovely. The one item that really disappointed was the Heirloom Tomatoes and mozzarella salad. The so-called heirloom tomatoes were nothing more than cherry tomatoes. The salad should have been sent back but not want to disrupt our celebration it was not brought to our waitresses attention.

    Ruth Chris is one of our favorites. The one in Destin is not their best. Everything was good, just not great and therefore not worth the price. We can do as good at 1/2 the price.

    We always love Ruth's Chris -- mostly because of the environment and there is no rush to finish our meal and vacate our table. Prices have gotten a bit steep though so the frequency of our visits may be further in between.....

    We ate at the restaurant on Saturday August 14th. They sat us in the booth near the front of the restaurant which was just perfect and quiet. The people were very attentive and great at their job. We ordered the Osco Busco ravioli definitely worth it just delicious that was an appetizer. Everything else was just perfect. Definitely would go back there again. We also ordered three of their desserts which were large and yummy.

    Eugene is a phenomenal waiter and the food is always amazing. We got the seared tuna for an appetizer and some steaks. Our sides were mashed potatoes and the sweet potato casserole and both were amazing. My favorite drink here is the raspberry cosmo, I order it without the rosemary though. Overall we absolutely love coming here for date night.
