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.

IT WAS NEW YEARS EVE. THE RESTAURANT WAS PACKED, OUR STEAKS WERE EXCELLENT. OUR SERVER, MIGUEL, WAS FANTASTIC. OVERALL, A GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE. EVEN THE VALET SERVICE IS MUCH IMPROVED SINCE THEY INSTALLED THE "FENCE RAIL".

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 .

Anniversary night was fabulous thanks to Ruth’s Chris!! Our table was decorated with heart confetti & rose petals!! We shared a Porterhouse which was perfectly prepared. Sides were Brussels sprouts & a loaded baked potato. We were too full for dessert but they graciously sent us home with a Creme Brûlée. Such a beautiful, romantic evening!

I felt Ruth Chris tried to squeeze to many tables in for the holidays, It was extremely close quarters to others in the restaurant. In fact they actually had to ask for people to get up, stand up so that they can squeeze around and serve a different table their entree's. I felt this was extremely rude to ask someone already seated, while they are eating their salad or enjoying their soup to stop so they can get around.
