The food was phenomenal and so were the drinks. The service was a bit slow, and needs improvement. But Very good

It was enjoyable having Thanksgiving dinner out at Ruth's Chris. All was good and if the turkey and stuffing were hotter it would have been an outstanding evening. I suspect the reason for the lukewarm temperature was because the food was sitting out while they baked a fresh batch of sweet potato casserole. The staging should have been better to ensure all the food was delivered at the right temperature.

Service and Food could not have been better. The room is a perfect open rectangle, think they need to break it up a little inside to have a premium feel to match the quality of service and food. Wouldn't stop me from going again, but think some of the competition has a leg up in the ambiance catagory.

The staff was outstanding. You can tell that they have real trained people. Very friendly, polite, non-intrusive. A total pleasure. This could become one of our go to restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. Try the Lobster Mac and Cheese or Sweet Potato Pecan Casserole if you have a chance. Their meats don't need any mentioning because they are all fantastic. Rivals anything I know from NYC.

Food was only on, great steak but horrible presentation on everything. Extremely slow service, more than 1 hour to get starters. Ordered a martini and never came. At the end they made it up for us by taking half the check off. But never coming back, better steak houses around.

As always very consistent. Service was professional and very good. My only issues was that my strip steak had a vein of gristle through it and the brussels sprouts were undercooked. My wife's steak was excellent as was our grandsons petite filet.

Food was definitely not worth the price & quality. The shrimps taste so old like it was in the refrigerator for weeks. My cowboy ribeye was not all that & my lamb chops were salty. The lobster Mac was watery & lobster taste old as well. My son ordered a filet and he said it taste weird. I would never go back. I feel like I wasted my money.

It was my Wife and I 6 Anniversary. We’ve celebrated every year with Ruth Chris, almost like a traditional thing for us. A little disappointed that they’re a corporate store and the Ruth Chris app l doesn’t work with them so I wasn’t able to use the benefits for that. But other than that Everything Was Beautiful all 5 Stars in case I made a mistake

I always have great things to say about Ruth's but not this time. Bread was definitely stale and not warm. Creamed spinach was barely warm as was the coffee. I ordered my streak medium and it was definitely well done-no pink to be seen. Waited an eternity after they cleared the table to get the check. Ladies room needed a cleaning as there was bits of paper all over the floor and no soap. There was some plate thing hanging off the wall behind the toilet. The auto trash can does not open. The restroom could use a visit from maintenance. It was only 6:30pm when I was in there so I suspect it is not being cleaned every day. Disappointing all around this time.

Please let me confirm," your steaks will be Medium Rare, that is warm red center. "

That would have been nice! The steaks were pink at the center, dry and smaller than the 16 ounce size on the menu...likely 3/4 a pound. Unforgivable!

Food was not prepared in a way that seemed fresh. It was not hot, steaks were over cooked. Steaks also were sitting before being served to us as they did not come out sizzling on the plates as they usually do. Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole and asparagus were ALL ice cold. They also don’t tell you they put an excessive amount of wine in the lobster bisque soup, we had to send that back. My salad was good. It I didn’t come to RC to eat salad. We went to celebrate 2 birthdays. It was my first time at the RC in Fort Lauderdale….after frequenting so many other locations this one was one of the worst from a food stand point.
