It was my birthday, so a special occasion! My gender fluid 12 year old kid was instructed to remove their fedora in accordance with the enforced dress code which was repeated to us several times to the point of embarrassment. We were not seated yet and we did understand the dress code. My child knew to remove before we were to be seated.. shortly after seating-several diners entered the dining room wearing items (several in cut-off ripped shorts) that were also clearly stated on the dress code and the guests were not talked to, they were ignored. I spoke with the gentleman who seated us regarding this “selection” and he stated they can only “ask”. We were strictly told that we would NOT be seated, and our reservation canceled if we did not abide by this dress code.. by this very same man. A hat dress code enforced over ripped jeans with rear cheeks hanging out.. hmmm. On top of that, steaks arrived well done. Not rare/medium rare. We did not finish them, and the Tomahawk steak was more than half chunk fat. Left a lot to be desired for the occasion and the tab. The only difference in what made the night somewhat agreeable, was our server. Knowledgeable, extremely friendly, and more than accommodated dietary restrictions to an individual in our group. Extremely disappointed in the food, and the experience overall.

Very pricey place with mediocre food, service was amazing from the valet to the server.
We didn't like the food, when you pay almost 300$ for a meal you would expect higher quality cuisine.

Our waiter Miguel was outstanding!! He really made the dining experience perfect! I’d also like to add that the gentleman working the valet service was was fantastic! He was very calm, attentive, and professional working The valet service all by himself, especially when the restaurant was very busy. I normally do not write reviews, but the evening was outstanding! Thank you so much I’m making my mom‘s 82nd birthday special and over the top!

I went to Ruth Chris for my birthday dinner. The food firstly was wonderful but the only reason why I gave this restaurant three stars is because of the cleanliness. The carpets seem to be very dirty and you can smell them as soon as you walk through the door it smells a lot like dirty laundry or mildew mops. Kind of like that smell you get when you leave the kitchen rag out on the sink to dry. The service was amazing per usual but once again the cleanliness of this restaurant needs to be questioned. I don’t think I’ll be visiting again anytime soon but once again the food was amazing and the service was great.

Everything was good. Bar service was excellent. Sides could have been a little hotter. Also, we ordered the shellfish tower and the shrimp were hidden under the ice so that was quite odd.

The was delicious. The servers were friendly and attentive. I felt that the servers should have worn masks especially now with the numbers of Covid rising. We also felt a little rushed. Server cleaned our table and brought our check even before one of us stopped eating. It’s still one of our favorite restaurants!

Steak was done perfectly BUT it was too salty and OVERPRICED. Overall - too much salt used on the food.

Wine - $15 bottle of wine runs $50.

Meat was bad. I explained to the manager, he gave us a discount for a meat that should have not been sold. Horrible experience at this location.

Such a great established steak house. If you’re not a meat eater, no worries. So many great choices, all the sides are delicious to share and besides the meat all selections are wonderful.
We were celebrating a birthday and staff couldn’t have been nicer or more attentive. The hostess, who as been working for Ruth Chris for 22 years is ageless and so terrific, even brought me my phone, when the valet went to retrieve it for me.
Highly recommend Ruth Chris Federal Hwy Fort Lauderdale. 🙏💕
