Food was just ok. Problem was that they were renovating restrooms so they only had one open for men and women to use together and there was a long line - at one time 6 people standing in the hallway to use the restroom. And then when I finally got in, one of the toilets was out of order and leaking and I had to stand in water (or whatever it was) in the stall next to it. Yuck! Was at a business dinner with 5 people and everytime someone had to use the restroom they were gone for 15 minutes or longer... very inefficient use of time. They should have closed the restaurant during the construction or at least have offered a free appetizer or dessert for the inconvenience.

Four of the five steaks ordered for our table were completely cooked incorrectly and the service was AWFUL. This was a very disappointing meal and dining experience. Given that Ruth’s Chris is a STEAKHOUSE, one would assume they know how to cook a steak. Even though they “attempt” to fix the mistakes, you end up with a meal that is miss timed and no one enjoys the experience.

There were many choices for Valentine's Day. We chose Ruth's Chris. We have not been to this location for a number of years but it was memorable enough that we decided we would come here for Valentine's Day dinner. We chose to celebrate on Thursday because 2.14.18 was Ash Wednesday, but we also know that the actual date can be crazy and we wanted to have a relaxing evening. We were not disappointed. We chose the shrimp cocktail appy and for our entree the porterhouse for 2. Our sides were roasted brussels and fingerling potatoes. We added a lobster tail which was the only item - while delicious - was probably not worth ordering as a side. The bread pudding was very good; sweet and different from mothers but very tasty and way more than enough for at least 2!
From the morning when delightful Gloria confirmed til leaving with our server Mike making our evening superb, we know we made the best choice. All of the staff was efficient and friendly. We will return in the future. Thank you.

Heard so much hype about it. Tried it for the first time for Valentine's Day. WANTED to like it, but it was mediocre. The steak had gristle in it, so I'm glad I didn't get a more expensive cut. The sides were mediocre as well. A friend told me that he used to work there and they MICROWAVE the food! And I believe it! Two hundred dollars not well spent. I'll try someplace else next time. Or Outback. Lol.

Food was delicious, but the restaurant needs a massive redo on the decorating. The carpet was old and needed replacing. It is not what a fine steak house should look like. If you look past that, the serice was great, had a good wine list and the steak was great. The tables were so close together that we had to get up so people could walk by. Overall, I think you can find better steak houses.

Great food and steaks but horrible service marred the entire evening. We’ve been waiting two years to come back here – after or before cruises it’s our special place! Unfortunately we had to wait for 30 minutes to be seated at a table for six. That wasn’t so bad, but neither the waitress nor the assistant server ever came over to the table to welcome us to take drink orders or anything for over 15 minutes. The rest of the evening was just like that ... Very strange and extremely disappointing to spend $600 and have that kind of experience.Thankfully the wonderful manager gave us a generous gift certificate before we left because I expressed my displeasure. We did not want anything from him but it was a very nice gesture and we will return. Just can’t get back that special night with our grown kids from also over the country. Not the way to kick off a cruise. This is highly unusual for a Ruth’s Chris.

Had not been to Ruth Chris for some time. I was disappointed to hear that they no longer offer Steaks "Au Poivre" style, which is very common in upscale steak places. They would not even entertain a special request (given how easy it is to make the sauce).

The tables are much closer together, in an effort to fit more people, so the overall ambiance has changed from what it used to be.

Overall the food was delicious, and the service was great. However, it may be a while before I go back. I have tried Morton's, Del Frisco's, and other top named steak houses, and they do go out of their way to accommodate requests (especially at these prices).

The whole experience was fantastic. It was good to be at a Ruth Chris resteraunt since we are from Columbus and they closed that one.

Staff was excellent in recognizing event. Server was good but dinner meal was noticeably slow. The classic sizzling plate was not experienced in delivering meal. Special selection did not have the appropriate portion of potato, and the broccoli serving was not edible. The glaring unsatisfactory experience was that my ribeye steak was extremely fatty. Management was attentive in taking off the check, but really wanted to have a good steak to eat. Thank goodness I ate the bread and appetizer.

This restaurant was a joke. It's a food chain below average at best steak house. In fact it's probably the worst steak house in all of Fort Lauderdale.
1. The service staff is inexperienced, unknowledgeable and overwhelmed.
2. The kids meals are a joke.
3. Ambiance is weak, very weak.
4. Way over priced for the sub par food and under performing service.
5. I would recommend 5-10 other steak restaurants in the area that are much better than Ruth Chris.

The food was great as was the service. The ambiance is a bit bland - it's one big room with no dividing walls so the noise level was high and the lighting was too bright.
