Nick , our server , was very attentive and professional. He was always checking to make sure everything was ok. The dining room was also clean and orderly.

It’s been awhile since we ate there. I noticed that some women were wearing work-out clothes , and running shoes. A few men had shorts and tshirts. What happened to business casual attire? It takes away from the ambiance of the dining room . I guess it is no longer enforced.

For an “upscale” steak house the atmosphere was meager. The waiter looked like he’d slept in his clothes! When we were finished eating anything the waiter would come over and say he would send someone to get the plates. We would then sit there with dirty plates for another 10 minutes. The steak came out on a scaldingly hot plate with a cup of butter floating in it, which proceeded to overcook my steak. We then had to listen to the manager and wait staff have loud and often colorful discussions in the entry of the kitchen. Go to Capital Grill. The food is better and the service is impeccable.

Food is the best. Disappointed in the level of service, which does not rise to the quality of the food. Server missed basic service such as water and iced tea refills. Very disappointing.

Such a big disappointment! One of the worst meals and experiences we’ve had at this Ruth Chris. This use to be the standard for steak houses, but not anymore. In the past week alone I had better filets and service at J. Alexander’s, Tropical Acers and Kaluz.

For the past three years we have eaten at Ruth Chris two or three times a year, it use to be more. But we haven’t had an exceptional meal there in over two and a half years. The scallops were flavorless and the salmon very fishy tasting and mushy. The filets were average and the overall presentation of all the food was poor. The service was polite but inadequate. I expect more for the prices being charge.

Unfortunately I do not think we will be back when we have other choices like Morton’s, Capital Grill and the restaurant mention above.

To top it off there was a foul odor as soon as we walked in the door. It smelled very musty.

The service by our waiter, Miguel, was outstanding as always, In addition to Miguel, one of the other waiters that has taken care of before, Pedro, made it a point to say hi and also check in with us while we were having dinner. It's this type of service that makes for an amazing dinner experience. Simply fantastic, and of course the food is always on point. GREAT job Miguel and Pedro you guys are amazing.

This used to be a favorite place to go. We hadn’t been there in close to a year. They have remodeled nicely. Finally the ladies room is updated, because it used to be terrible.
All the bar staff are new. Unfortunately two had Han attitude which will prevent us from returning anytime soon. Patrick is in the wrong business as his at attitude does not belong behind a bar but behind a desk with no interaction with people. We had to ask for chips and waited about 10 minutes or more. Then he asked us if we were going to order dinner, while we were enjoying our wine and conversation. BTW the bar was only half full. We did have our $25 coupon so we all ordered the Ruth Special. We were specific about our order as my fiend is highly allergic to shrimp and specifically asked for no shrimp, but I told him I was fine with the shrimp even though I said I didn’t care for it. My steak came out as an 8 oz instead for 6oz NO shrimp. Our steaks were rare instead of medium, the sides were cold. They just couldn’t get it right! It would have been fine if Patrick didn’t have an attitude and argued. The only nice one was the service bartender, I believe his name was Leo, I wish he had served us.
The manager took care of our entire bill, which wasn’t necessary but very appreciated. I felt like we over tipped but as it’s tip share we didn’t want to hurt the team because of one bad apple.
We will not be returning anytime soon even with the ongoing coupon.
TG Caroline is still there, she’s a jewel! She’s known us as long as she’s been working there, so she helped us out through another misunderstanding!
Again, the manager did the right thing, so thank you.

Dinned her for Fort Lauderdale Crave Restaurant month. Amazing value for the price. Everything was great food, wine, service, only compliant is the restaurant has a very strong unpleasant odor. It hits you the second you walk in the door and throughout the dinning room. It smells like a wet rug or dirty dish rag. For this reason not sure we'll be back.

I brought my boyfriend to Ruth Chris to celebrate a special occasion; this is usually our favorite restaurant.
We were greeted by the busboy and the waiter truly took a long time to come to our table.
Once he came, he provided us with the menus and yet again took a long time to circle back to our table to take our orders.
Once we placed our order, the food came out very quickly. We ordered a Caesar salad to start off (my favorite) and then I got the filet with shrimp and my boyfriend got the filet with lobster, with cauliflower and creamed spinach as our sides.
The steak came out in the hot buttery plate and we were so excited to dig in! We were both shocked to find that both our filets had a lot of fat ... I have never in my life ordered a filet and seen so much fat in it; especially a Ruth Chris filet. Sadly, the fat took over most of our filet meat.
In addition, my boyfriend never got served his lobster that he ordered. We didn’t have a chance to say anything about it because the waiter didn’t come to our table to check on us and we didn’t have a chance to tell him about the lobster missing nor the fatty filet because we were done with our meal once he came around, even though I called for his attention a couple times.
Once he came, I did mention it and he brought a complimentary desert, which was nice. But to be honest, we were so disappointed at our favorite restaurant for not being attentive to us, serving us fatty filets and forgetting to serve an item in our order.
