We come here to enjoy a dining experience, Ruth Chris's atmosphere, their wonderful service and delicious food. That was our experience last night. We had lots of attention from servers and our waiter. The steaks and accompany dishes were excellent. We will be back.

We dined at Ruth's Chris for our 13th wedding anniversary. We had an early reservation for 5pm. It was an early dining time and we were seated almost immediately to our table. As we walked into the dining area, the staff had our booth ready with little hearts spread on the table which was a nice touch. It was very cold (to me) and as we were seated, I mentioned this to the hostess and she said she would adjust the temperature. I believe she did, and through most of the meal I was OK with a jacket on. It did get cooler toward the end of the experience. The service was excellent. The meal was delicious, but I would not consider this a romantic place to dine. An added surprise was that our server took a picture of us and we took it home as a memory of our anniversary. We also received a complimentary dessert of fruit, perfect for us since my husband is diabetic.

This restaurant has a reputation as a premier steakhouse and they are correct. EVERYTHING is first rate. There is nothing lacking in this restaurant. The only problem is occasional noise from a neighboring table. This is not a place for children. But food wise, you will not find a better quality steak and the mushroom side dish is the best I have had anywhere.

Waiter forgot to bring birthday dessert and take picture. We had to ask to bring new desert and take picture. Temerature in Restaurant was very warm.

Have heard about Ruth's for years. I wanted to see that sizzling plate!
Finally the stars align and my wife and I go for date night while in Ft. Laud.
Server was hospitable. House Martini was great. Beet salad was really good.
Ambiance, bright for my taste.
Sides ok. Steak while tender enough to literally cut with a fork was again good, but not amazing. So honestly, it was my first and last. Not a knock on this specific location, just not my cup of tea.
I will say it was an amazing value, $46 per for 3 course meal.

I couldn't give a five star rating because Ruth's Chris has by far the worst bread. Of all the high-end restaurants theirs is the worst and it's worse than medium priced.restaurants. They need to upgrade their bread.

We are regular diners at Ruth Chris and have never had a bad experience. Food is always excellent! Service was extremely slow to get cocktails, not busy on a Thursday night not sure of the problem. Our friends also thought service was a little off. We will definitely return and ask for Tommy who happened to be off Thursday. He is an amazing server!!

We took advantage of Ft Lauderdale's annual September $37 Fix Price dining. We were a party of four and we all had an appetizer, the 8 ounce filet with a nice side dish and desert. The food, service and décor were perfect. A great night out at an excellent price.

The Porterhouse could have been less fatty and larger.

The service was not acceptable for somewhat fine dining. A waitress came by and said she'd be ver soon then did not return. We had to finally ask for water and still wait for a server. I then went up to the hostess stand and asked for a server. When she finally appeared she said there had been a mix up. We were not offered the menus for the restaurant week special we had signed up for until we asked. We did ask for a manager and we were to,d he would come but he never showed up. The food was tasty especially the salads but a bit skimpy on the dessert and no presentation whatsoever. Having said all this I have previously been to Ruth's Chris in Chicago and thought it was awesome.

Ruth's Chris is as good as it gets! We celebrated our anniversary there and from the minute we walked in we were treated like royalty! The food is phenomenal! The service is impeccable! The added touch of a decorated table, choice of dessert on the house, photo taken by our waiter and presented to us, manager, wait staff etc, etc, all came over to wish us a happy anniversary. All these ingredients made for a night we will truly remember and cherish!

Steak-perfection. Ruth's Chris is by far, the best Steakhouse in Fort Lauderdale. With some remodeling, specially at the bar, Ruth's Chris is moving ahead with the times. While it may not be the most luxurious setting in the area...(although still classic and refined)....it is by far the place you go to when you want to treat your appetite to culinary perfection. The steak is always perfect....always!!

Some remodeling at the bar looks great! Now a little "taking it to the next level" in the main dining room. Trulucks atmosphere is a place to start...with live music. But nonetheless..... 5 stars!!

We try to eat at Ruth's Chris at least once a month before as we always have a great meal with outstanding service. Once again we were not disappointed as the food was wonderful (3 dinner, each having something unique). The wine was great and made the meal that much special. We will be back with more friends!!
