I was so disappointed ☹️ it was our first time at Ruth Chris and it will probably be our last. We waited for our table for more than 20 minutes after making a reservation. The entrees took a long time about 1.5 to come out of the kitchen, the portions were so small for the prices charged. My sea bass was tasteless. My husband had to return his ribeye since it was too pink and waited a while to get it back. We were told that they will give us a free dessert 🍮 bread pudding for the inconveniences but then charged us , we again had to wait for the waiter to fix the receipt. No paper towel to dry your hands in the women’s bathroom.We spent a total of 4 hours at the restaurant total and the only thing to me that was decent was the harvest salad and my lemon drop ginger cocktail 🍹 😡😤

Miguel has to be the best server ever! He walked us through the menu, suggested proper cooking temperatures for our steaks, which all came out exactly like we wanted them, and was always one step in front of our needs. Great Valentines dinner for our wives!

Everything was very good as usual. I’ve noticed the steakhouse salad has gone downhill in the last few years. This time, it was a giant plate of salad and some onions. It was very dry and boring. It looked like someone opened a bag of salad from the supermarket and dumped the entire thing on the plate. No one is looking for a tremendous plate of lettuce. We are looking for a quality salad with some nice things added to it. Other than that no complaints.

Amazing! As my boyfriend and I are both fine dining servers and are wary of going out to eat to new restaurants, Miguel took great care of us on our anniversary and made us feel very comfortable and confident we were in good hands. Was busy during the time we came but wait time for food wasn’t very long compared to volume. They gave us a delicious cheesecake at the end to celebrate :) 10/10! will for sure come back and give as top recommendation to friends

Everything was fantastic. A typical Ruth’s Chris. Food- perfect. Ambiance - the norm. Nice And quiet for a Sunday. Our server was OK - rough around the edges and disappeared at times. However - we witnessed another server- Anthony- who was amazing, attentive, efficient, and by far one of the superior servers. We will, and you should too - ask for Anthony!!!!

As much as as we always love this restaurant, I was very disappointed in the service we received for a huge party. My food came out wrong 2 times and the deserts that were agreed upon with a contrast I’d not what was received. We were celebrating my sons 18th birthday and wanted all of our guests, 14 of them to enjoy the bread pudding but instead cheesecake was served. When I called the servers attention to this error they only brought out 1 for my son and not for our guests or my husband or me.

Steak was mediocre. Too much fat. Tasted like a $15.00 steak but cost $55.00

Went for a birthday celebration with friends. I had porterhouse which was fantastic but my 2 buddies each ordered cowboy ribeyes and while both of which came out piping hot neither had the char or crust that was expected. In fact, I hate to say, each was somewhat unappealing. Just a hunk of grayish brown meat. This is not to say that they didn’t enjoy both- in fact, they very much did. It was just surprising for the presentation.

Sides & service was exceptional. We even enjoyed a birthday cheesecake on the house. So, overall experience not bad.

Everything was perfect! The Brazilian server (my apologies for not remembering his name) was amazing! The little touches and the way he interacted with my entire family was outstanding! The garlic that he prepared for all of us was so tasty and unexpected that I’m sure we’ll ask for it again next time we’ll visit! Thank you!

The food was terrible! They gave me the worst cut of fillet I could imagine. It was unevenly cooked, not nearly tender, and all charred. They simply didn’t try.

I will start by saying that my most recent dining experience was on New Years Eve. I have had many good experiences at this restaurant but this was not one of them. We sent back 3 items 2 of the steaks were very undercooked and the asparagus was overcooked to a mushy consistency. It’s was not my fault the chef undercooked my rare steak but what was returned was an overcooked ruined steak that was barely edible. My wife has a similar experience with her steak. I never understand why the costumer is punished for the chef’s mistake with a reheated steak. What surprised me the most was when the steak was returned neither a manager or our waiter checked to see if it was ok. I saw a lot food being returned to the kitchen from the small section we were in but I did not see anyone from the restaurants staff show any concern. I believe when you spend close to $400 at a dinner for 3 you should be treated better.

Christmas dinner was not great. All of their reservations ran at least 1 hour behind schedule. They clearly over booked. And they did nothing to compensate for their clear mistake. The ambiance of this Ruth’s Chris was not like others I have been to. Not as nice inside. Food was good but not great. Not my best Ruth’s Chris experience for sure.

Typically never as good on a holiday. Filet was overcooked. Potato was undercooked. Caesar sale was soggy. Service was fine. For a holiday not much open so it works. I wouldn’t rave about it though.

Do not go, awful dinner, not seated with reservations for 45min. had to keep asking when the table would be ready, waiting by the door with no place to sit. Waiter was nice but did not check on us for a REALLY long time, after waiting over 30 min. for the food, brought the wrong food and the steak was cold, had to send it back. The waiter serves that food all the time, he knew that food was cold when he gave it to us, definitely not the sizzling steak I expected and it was too raw to eat, the lobster was also not cooked completely. On top of the terrible terrible service, would not go back to this rat hole if the food was free. Thanks for ruining my Christmas Eve experience with my family. Where is the manager that checks on you! NEVER EAT HERE!

Reservation was for 8:15 pm but we were not seated until 8:45 pm. We ordered appetizers but the main course was delivered before they were. Food was perfect but the service timing needs to improve.

Won't be going on Christmas Eve again. We had been going there on Christmas Eve for the past 10+ years. We had 7:15 reservations, but when we walked in there was at least 50 people in the lobby waiting to be seated. The chances of us being seated at a reasonable time looked slim. We happened to see some friends who had a booth in the bar and chose to sit with them. Service was good.

Horrible experience last night mainly because of a really bad waiter. After 45 minutes of not seeing him we had someone track him down to put in appetizers and he tried to say my brother was in the bathroom that is why he didnt come around..which he wasnt even. He got our orders wrong and I was served a steak with bluecheese crumble(which I hate bluecheese) and charred the worng persons steak, and my brothers steak was raw. The sides came with no serving utensils, I flagged a waitress down that took over our table and she offered us desert with no charge because the original server was so bad. Overall it was a really terrible experience at Ruth Chris Fort Luderdale

I hate it when you have to ask for a server. And the place wasn’t that busy. It wasn’t the same restaurant I’m used to I expected more and got less .
I guess that’s what happens as it gets older.
I doubt very seriously if I ever go back .
