Always reliable - this Ruth's Chris is outstanding. The food is exemplary, great wine list and phenomenal service. The only thing that could be improved: better brussel sprouts ! (Steakhouses are sometimes ranked by the quality of the sides- and the brussel sprouts were too large , dense and not flavorful or crispy enough). Only a small critique. Overall this is a great evening !

Overall the experience lacked polish. Wrinkled table cloths, rusted candle holder, intrusive, interruptive service. 3/4 full rocks martinis, No appetizer plates served, then three trips to clear a split shrimp cocktail. Bread service was cold, chop was warm on warm plates. Porter to share was over cooked by a full temp, 500 degree plates did not sizzle at all. Very sub-par for $250 two-top. Icing on the cake was the manager who was engaged in social dialogue with a staffer in the lobby, ignored us upon departure. Had he even said thank you or good night I would not be sharing this publicly. Clearly restaurants are only as good as their operator, and this Ruth’s is an epic fail. Food runner Nick was a high point.

Hadn't been to this location in awhile but used to be our favorite. This particular night it was very, very crowded and the service was not great. To be honest, the experience was sub-par to any fine dining experience we are used to having at most of the Ruth's Chris' we have been to. Steaks were excellent, BBQ shrimp were on the smaller side, not very hot and definitely not as good as their original recipe. The shrimp were also a bit undercooked and the same went for the shrimp that came with my son's caesar salad. Mushrooms and spinach were excellent as always. Ruth's Chris will always be a favorite but this experience was definitely a disappointment.

It was our anniversary dinner and we were wished happy anniversary at least 3times before we sat down. Our table was decorated and a very nice anniversary card was there too. A special desert and they took our picture, developed it and placed it a card was given to us to. The service was outstanding along with a great meal. Overall an amazing experience.

Steaks were not cooked to the correct temperature. Even when they all had to be returned so they could be cooked properly, they were returned inedible. Waste of time and money.

Were in FL for 7 days and we ate at Ruth’s 4 nights. The first 3 dinings were great, the very last day, we were seated at the entrance on the right side, first center table, latin lady waited on us.....VERY BAD service OVERALL.
There were 2 other black males assisting the table, one of the 2 was being trained....they both did GREAT! Super kind, helpful, attentive and polite; completely the opposite of our waitress.
Kuddos to these 2 gents!

Ruths Chris is always a go to place for excellent steaks. In that department it didn't let us down. We started with the Escargots which are still never shown on the menu, but were perfectly prepared in butter and garlic with plenty of fresh French bread to dip. The Cowboy Ribeye was cooked perfectly (Medium) with a side of au gratin potatoes and the Harvest Salad with a white balsamic dressing. A good Red Zin wine and then the Crème Brulee for desert.

We reserved on open table and were immediately sat. Our server was very good, attentive and always swinging by to check on us.

The location is showing it's age. The Men's room was closed for remodeling so the Women's was now COED, which felt a bit strange. I'm not sure if the dining area had been remodeled or not. If it has, perhaps they need to rethink it. It should have a nice warm club feel. But we came for the meal and that did not disappoint.

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.
