Came here for Father’s Day dinner. Service was good but the food wasn’t great. Filet came out rare when I requested medium. Crab cakes and lobster Mac were unevenly cooked. Ribeye was pretty tough. Asked for an Arnold Palmer and received mostly straight lemon juice. My son’s chicken was very over cooked. The Caesar salad was good and our waters stayed filled. Not worth the money.

It was a birthday celebration in which the guest of honor looked forward to a bone-in Filet Mignon. First mistake, appetizer orders were incorrect. Second mistake, when crab cakes were served one was crushed and should never have been presented. Third, the guest of honor's Filet was overdone ! Fourth, the vegetables, roasted brussel sprouts, were burned on the outside and raw and hard on the inside and looked and tasted like they hadn't had the ends trimmed off. They were replaced with the same result. The chef/cook obviously does not know how to roast brussel sprouts at all! We have been coming to this Ft. Lauderdale location for over ten years and have always had pleasant service and excellent food. This time was a bitter disappointment especially for the guest of honor who has also been here many times and had come from out of the country to celebrate his birthday at what has always been one of his favorite steak houses and that will likely result in none of us ever returning. Quality is gone. The best part of the meal was an excellent wine, which the restaurant has nothing to do with other than stocking it. Our server, Jonathan, did a nice job and was attentive and apologetic even more so than the manager was.

Steak was good. Service was good. However the starter was tasty but got cold very quickly. Same thing with the side dishes. They must be pre made elsewhere and frozen. Then microwaved. Not what you would expect from a high end steak house. Very much a chain feel.

Frequent Ruth’s Chris patron. This was one of our worst visits. It felt as if the waiters primary focus was on getting us out. Rushing a $600 4 top only guarantees we won’t be back anytime soon.

I've been enjoying Ruth's Chris all over the US for decades. It's consistently very good. However, our last trip to Ruth's Chris in Fort Lauderdale was a letdown. To be clear, the server we had was attentive and friendly. The ambiance at this particular location is nothing special (but I come here for the steak, not the decor).

Unfortunately this time the food was a letdown. We always start with lobster mac and cheese for an appetizer. This time, it arrived within minutes and was only warm, suggesting it had been sitting out. Then, as we were trying to look past the fact that it couldn't have been made to order, I took several bites of lobster shell. I even saved the ones I didn't swallow (one was the size of a DIME). I remember seeing an episode of Top Chef where the judges said it's unforgivable to leave shell in a dish like that.

I showed the server, and she said she would take it back to the kitchen. Then the bill came, and there the lobster mac was still on the bill. I guess when you serve lukewarm food full of lobster shell to a life-long customer, you MUST charge them no matter what. I paid the bill. The money isn't the issue, but bad food and an even worse customer-focus is shameful.

BTW, my filet was cooked to perfection and delicious. It's just a shame they had an opportunity to make me even a bigger fan by treating me right, and instead I'm disenchanted with this location and probably won't be coming back. Ruth, may she rest in peace, would not be happy about the short sightedness of whomever is running the show here.

We went for my son's birthday. We had requested a booth ahead of time, and weren't given one, not a huge deal but they were rude about the request.

Our waitress was nice. We ordered and waited for our food for a REALLY long time. So we drank tap water that tasted like it came straight out of a swimming pool while we waited.

We ordered two filet mignons, a stuffed chicken breast, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, and au gratin potatoes. They forgot the au gratin potatoes, and the chicken breast was served raw. I sent back the chicken, because raw chicken isn't very appetizing, and told them I didn't want another one. I picked on the mashed potatoes for dinner. The brussel sprouts were undercooked, but also were served smothered in bacon grease and bacon bits. I don't eat bacon, so I didn't eat them. When they brought out the au gratin potatoes, I was surprised they were just cut up baked potatoes with cheese on top. We barely touched them.

The manager did apologize for our experience, and offered us free dessert.

Overall, very disappointing trip to Ruth's Chris. We won't be returning to this location again.

We had a party of four, bidding farewell to our neighbors. We had lobster bisque which was delicious (hint of sherry), shrimp cocktail (huge!), calamari (which they granted our request for rings only), ahi tuna, wedge salad, cowboy ribeye (perfectly cooked) and skipped dessert. Wonderful meal as always!! Tried to book my retirement party but until they can get back to operating at 100% capacity it wasn’t possible. Can’t wait for that day!

My husband and I wanted a good steak, we had not been to Ruth's Chris so decided to try it.
The welcome we received was warm and made us comfortable from the start. The waiter, Miguel and assistant waiter, Pierre could not have been nicer or more friendly.
Then the food started coming! We had crab cakes for our appetizer and they were the best, lots of crab and done properly. This was followed with our steaks, one filet and one ribeye and the best sweet potato casserole we have ever had. It is hard to describe how wonderful the steaks were! Done to perfection (medium rare) so flavorful and tender.
Although it is expensive, it is definitely worth it. We will go back!

My wife and I have eaten at Ruth Chris Steakhouse in Philadelphia, King of Prussia, Atlantic City, Marina Del Rey (CA), Baltimore, Annapolis, and now Fort Lauderdale. It is one of our favorite 'Chain Restaurants.' When we left the Fort Lauderdale location last night, we both commented how unimpressed we were. Our steaks were not cooked correctly. The garlic potatoes were 'blah.' Service wasn't bad, but it certainly was not as good as we have experienced at all of the other locations. To top it off, the did not have the molten chocolate lava cake, which was our favorite dessert. We actually joked that the most impressive thing was they brought a pitcher of soda and left it at our table for us.
