We went for the Sunday 4:30-6:30 happy hour and the classic menu as well.
Waited at the bar (bar area small in comparison to some other RC's) for 10 minutes just to be acknowledged, as there was one staff member doing paperwork behind the bar, and the other was nowhere to be seen. When the bartender did arrive, he was polite and eager to please.
I ordered the filet(medium)" and shrimp from the classic menu. Spouse ordered from the HH menu. The filet arrived Well done. I've been to several Ruth's Chris establishments-the well done filet was a First. It came back again Rare. One more try and it was acceptable. Spouse's filet sandwich turned out to be Chunks (sliced would've been much better) of filet that were not tender. Mashed potatoes were lukewarm at best.
First time at Ruth's that we were not impressed with the quality or the service.

We try to eat at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Ft. Lauderdale at least once a month and for most celebrates. Each time we go we have a wonderful time with outstanding food, great desserts, and a wonderful wine list. Our last visit was one of the best as our server (Nick Mosiman) and team were outstanding and made our special day (37th Wedding Anniversary) even more special. Thanks to all!!

I took my best friend out for her 60th birthday celebration. We arrived late as she was just returning from Atlanta & her plane was delayed. The host/ hostess could not have been nicer. Had a booth ready in no time, complete with birthday confetti. We ordered petite filet & petite ribeye. Both were cooked to perfection! Added a loaded baked potato & a Caesar salad. They brought her a dessert with candle to round out the perfect evening! Delicious!

It was Our Wedding Anniversary. My wife had never been to Ruth Chris and was very not interested, after the warm welcome, very attentive waiters and the Excellent Food, my wife was Speechless. She loved the experience and to top it off the waiter gifted us with an Happy Anniversary Small desert. My wife was overly satisfied and so was I. We will be definitely having more occasional events and dates here. Thanks Again for your warm and Beautiful Greeting, serving, food and everything before, in between and after dinner. You guy made our anniversary that much more special. I can’t Thank you enough!!!

Great food and service as expected at Ruth's Chris. This particular dining night for our anniversary included some very loud children accompanied by their equally loud parent seated DIRECTLY behind us. While this unfortunate occurrence didn't bring the quality of the food down at all, it KILLED the mood and atmosphere. The staff did their best to accommodate, but what was done was done. I do thank the manager for my dessert though. I wasn't sure if it was an anniversary gift or just amends for the unfortunate behavior of the guests that were less considerate of others dining that night. Either way, THANK YOU.

First time dining at Ruth’s Chris. The food was amazing - definitely lived up to my expectations. Service was great - wait staff was very attentive and made our first time there very comfortable. My only complaint was the noise level. The dining area was not full by any means, but there was a larger party sitting at the next table that made it very difficult for my husband and I to have a conversation. It was a special occasion for us so we were both disappointed.

We have been going to this restaurant chain for several years and never had a bad experience like the one we had in the Fort Lauderdale location. I ordered the Tomahawk Ribeye and it arrived overcooked and so were the side orders. We had to wait for the knives because the steak arrived before steak knives and our waiter never stopped once to ask if we needed anything else. Bad service and food, horrible experience.

We have been many times to Ruth Chris in Maryland but this was our first visit to the Ft Lauderdale location. Everything was wonderful from the waiter and his service to the food except one issue which really upset us. We were not even finished with our salads when our dinners arrived. I felt like we were being rushed and couldn’t enjoy dinner after that. We were there for our anniversary and would have enjoyed some time between courses. The steaks as always were outstanding but that kind of ruined it for me.

I was rather upset this evening. The main reason I go to Ruth’s Chris is for the desert. They had a traditional raisin bread pudding that was to die for. They have gotten rid of it and changed it to a white chocolate bread putting that is just OK. Other than the desert I would highly recommend a place

I have always expected, and received, superior service and a good meal at any Ruth's Chris... This was no exception. Made reservations for three and five showed up. The Staff immediately got us set-up and seated right on time. Service was quick, fun and engaging. Food was as expected of great quality and prepared perfectly. I do understand that there have been some previous negative review of this specific location, but, I believe they have heard the customers concerns and made necessary changes to make this the Go-To Steakhouse in Fort Lauderdale.

Had 8:00 reservations but not served our entrees until after 10:15. When food finally came, it was cold and I showed the waiter that I was able to pick up the plate which should have been blazing hot. I am still waiting for my check at 11:15 PM. I will never return to this establishment again.
