 (Western NC)·Dined on January 13, 2018

Upon entering the lobby a large group was present which appeared to be an overflow crowd from the bar. They were very LOUD. Hostess was friendly. We only had to wait a few minutes to be seated. Dining room was much quieter and nicely decorated.
Wait staff was very attentive, though I had to wait a bit for my second glass of wine.
Food was the best. Had a 40 oz Porterhouse for two. Cooked to perfection. French fries could have been slightly crispier.
Overall, just what I would have expected from a Ruth’s Chris steakhouse. My only complaint would be that the majority of the patrons respect the restaurant ‘s experience and not dress like they were having dinner at Chili’s!

I have eaten at numerous RCs. This was a very big disappointment. Three of the entrees were served cold and raw. After we sent them back, two came back burned and over cooked.
The vegetables had to be re heated..and tasted as such.

They were understaffed. The waitress was almost in tears.The manager offered free dessert but we were not interested.

Realize it was New Years Eve but the price was crazy for the special meal. They juggled furniture to fit more people in and were not prepared for the crowd.

I hope corporate takes notice of this review.

This restaurant is just awesome. We went with friends on New Year's Eve. In the past, we have been disappointed in other restaurants on New Year's Eve. But Ruth's Chris did a phenomenal job. The food was outstanding. And John, our server, and his colleague Sean provided absolutely perfect service. This was a real treat. We look forward to our next visit.

I was very disappointed because we were not seated in the main dining room on New Years Eve, but in a side room used for banquets. It was very noisy and a very plain room, not attractive like the main restaurant.

Very busy New Year's Eve. Service was still first class. I do wish the dress code were enforced...people came in looking like they just finished washing the car.....really disappointing, especially on New Year's Eve!
Due to the large crowd Granddaughter and I were seated in an adjoining room, not the main dining room. She was looking forward to the "fancy dining room", (as a 7 year old would)...perhaps next time I will verify seating.
Food was excellent. The crab stack is a favorite. She had lamp chops - generous and meaty - served piping hot! Creamed spinach and Brussel sprouts were very good. Ahi tuna was fresh and delicious.

Great food as always, service not fantastic this time as I think our server had too many tables. We didnt get our water refilled at all. Service was still good though and we could have asked for water, just not the normal level from this restaurant that we go to regularly.

I am also convinced that the manager is scared of me because he seems to visit every table in the restaurant except ours EVERY TIME we go... I think it is funny and have nothing to talk to him about, just funny.

This Ruth's Chris location is probably our favorite in Central Florida. Our food is always cooked perfectly, timed out perfectly for serving, and DELICIOUS. The dining room is always at a comfortable volume which allows for intimate conversations at the table without overhearing the party seated next to you. Cannot ask for better service or quality.

Tom and David and the staff always do a super job running the restaurant. They are always ready to make you have a perfect night out. They go way above as far as customer service.They are the #1 restaurant in Lake Mary and Longwood and east of downtown Orlando.
We give them a 10 for 10.
Great job Ruth Chris Lake Mary....

My husband and I celebrated our 64th anniversary here. We were greeted by the hostess wishing us a Happy Anniversary as she seated us in a cozy booth donned with white tablecloth strewn in red rose petals. We were promptly greeted by John, our server who was gracious and efficient throughout the evening with a pleasant, quiet manner which I appreciate in a waiter. Our steaks arrived sizzling hot and very tasty. After dinner John surprised us with a complimentary dessert- YUM! - and a picture of us as a keepsake to remember our delightful evening.

Went for my birthday as it’s one of my favorite “special occasion” for steak restaurants. Ordered 11oz filet mignon, medium. It arrived rare .... sent it back, by the time it arrived, my husband had finished his meal ..... the manager handled the situation graciously well and made an adjustment to our check, but I would have preferred the meal to arrive cooked to order.

They certainly know how to prepare a steak at this restaurant. The options are not just the done level (rare, medium, etc.), but also the toppings, accompanying side dishes, an extensive wine list with many excellent choices by the glass, the service, and the chairs (ask for the big red leather ones) or booths. I have never been disappointed with a meal here.

Love Ruth Chris but now prefer Fleming’s. My husband wanted to go to RC for his birthday. We went to Fleming’s last month for mine. Fabulous experience, ’several members of staff greeted us with a happy Birthday, table covered with confetti, special dessert with sparkler & box of truffles. Also excellent steak.

We ordered the calamari as an appetizer I requested the BBQ Shrimp and a side Lobster Mac and Cheese. My husband ordered a Filet with two Lobster tails. My husband was so impressed by the perfect cook of the steak. Everything was absolutely perfect.

I keep going back to the restaurant expecting a different (better) experience but it is just not happening. We ordered wine only to find out 20 minutes later they were out of what we ordered. So instead of bringing us the next level up and giving it to us at the same price, they tried to charge us the extra. We went to order a second bottle of wine only to find out they were out of that wine as well. So they tried to sell us the wine below what we ordered in the first place...strange. So instead of enjoying a night out with family, we were negotiating wine prices...lame! I can say that the steak is the best around!

We’ve been to this store in Lake Mary several times, and it never disappoints. Our waiter, John was knowledgeable and friendly. Suggested an excellent Zinfandel which we enjoyed with our calamari that was some of the best I’ve had.
The bone in strip with blue cheese crust was perfectly done and delicious. The sides were cream spinach (a must) and the au gratin potatoes, decadent.
The restaurant bought us dessert for our anniversary which was some some apple cookie combo with ice cream. Yummmm.
A great experience at a great restaurant. It’s not cheap by any means, but for that special occasion it’s hard to beat. And we don’t have to treck to the other side of town.

Members of my party really enjoyed the food, however I am not a big fan of mushy steak and chicken sitting in butter. Server needs more training. Tables are small, so empty bread plates, baskets need to be removed quickly. Drinks need to be refilled without having to be asked.

From traveling to Asia, all throughout South America (especially Argentina, the beef capital of the world), and all over Europe... I always find myself longing to come home for Ruth’s Chris in Lake Mary. Whether it’s the filet, the ribeye, the Cowboy ribeye, or the Tomahawk ribeye... it’s near impossible to beat Lake Mary Ruth’s Chris in food quality, price, service, and overall dining experience. Our favorite!

Amazing experience. The manager of this location, David, went above and beyond to make sure my dad's birthday was special and a success. The service was impeccable, the recommendations from our waiter were completely on point. Everything was amazing. I went up to the hostess in the middle of dinner and asked for a special request: bring the creme brulee with a lit candle out after our entree with the words "happy birthday" written on the plate and they didn't even flinch. I'm sure they get a lot of requests like this because this is a restaurant (in my eyes) for a special occasion, but they were so accommodating and eager to help. I would recommend this location to anyone and everyone. Very reasonably priced considering the quality of food, the level of service and the ambiance. Thank you for making my dad's birthday a success, he was so so happy.

Very disappointed in our anniversary meal. I had the 12oz ribeye that was so fatty I couldn't believe Ruth's Chris would serve it. About 1/2 the steak was fat I left on my plate. My wife's 6oz filet was also kind of fatty which is very uncommon, especially at a high end restaurant. Our server, Hector, was great! Probably be a while before we go back.
