We had a party of four, bidding farewell to our neighbors. We had lobster bisque which was delicious (hint of sherry), shrimp cocktail (huge!), calamari (which they granted our request for rings only), ahi tuna, wedge salad, cowboy ribeye (perfectly cooked) and skipped dessert. Wonderful meal as always!! Tried to book my retirement party but until they can get back to operating at 100% capacity it wasn’t possible. Can’t wait for that day!

Ruth's Chris is always a great experience. The Fort Lauderdale staff was very attentive and the set-up is very Covid observant. Great time, great food, great service.

My husband and I wanted a good steak, we had not been to Ruth's Chris so decided to try it.
The welcome we received was warm and made us comfortable from the start. The waiter, Miguel and assistant waiter, Pierre could not have been nicer or more friendly.
Then the food started coming! We had crab cakes for our appetizer and they were the best, lots of crab and done properly. This was followed with our steaks, one filet and one ribeye and the best sweet potato casserole we have ever had. It is hard to describe how wonderful the steaks were! Done to perfection (medium rare) so flavorful and tender.
Although it is expensive, it is definitely worth it. We will go back!

We ordered the bone in filet at the suggestion of our waiter Tim. who by the way was excellent !! The filet and all the side dished were exceptional. Having had the bone in filet
at other steak houses, this piece of meat blew them all away !
It was exceptional experience !!
Thanks,
Pete

My wife and I have eaten at Ruth Chris Steakhouse in Philadelphia, King of Prussia, Atlantic City, Marina Del Rey (CA), Baltimore, Annapolis, and now Fort Lauderdale. It is one of our favorite 'Chain Restaurants.' When we left the Fort Lauderdale location last night, we both commented how unimpressed we were. Our steaks were not cooked correctly. The garlic potatoes were 'blah.' Service wasn't bad, but it certainly was not as good as we have experienced at all of the other locations. To top it off, the did not have the molten chocolate lava cake, which was our favorite dessert. We actually joked that the most impressive thing was they brought a pitcher of soda and left it at our table for us.

Our server Miguel was outstanding. Such a treat to have a caring waiter with an outgoing and lovely personality. The food was delicious. Not rushed; everything seemed timed perfectly. I never mind paying the price for exemplary service and high quality delicious food. My steak was melt in the mouth and cooked perfectly to order at medium rare. It is challenging these days to find a chef who actually knows what medium rare is and cooks it accordingy. Hubby's caesar salad was so crisp and fresh. My asparagus was delicious and thank goodness we saved room for the creme brulee. Wonderful. Thank You!

We’ve been to many Ruth’s Chris restaurants and this one was the worst. The hosts weren’t particularly friendly upon arrival and when we were seated the waiter was slow to take our drink and appetizer order. The party of 4 next to us were obnoxious and made our experience unpleasant. The manger Chris catered to their complaints about their food and drinks and cared more about their time than everyone else in the room who had to watch and listen to them. Food was good which was the only plus along with the food runners and table bussers who were all nice and hard working. Overall a disappointing experience at this one. We will only go to the Boca Raton one when we visit Florida.

The host greeted us without a smile. The waiting area was full and he did not mention that we could sit at the bar and wait, we did have a reservation. The filet mignon was ordered medium-rare and came to the table very rare. I do not believe in sending food back so we took it home. Our server was ok. She lacked energy and really failed to engage at all with us. We love the one in Garden City, NY and we expected the same quality, level of service and ambiance.

Atmosphere was not great. We were seated in the back room which felt like a very dated banquet room. I suppose it was due to social distance efforts. My filet was also very over cooked. We used to love going to Ruth’s but sadly won’t be running back to this location. I will say our server was great.
