My filet was delicious! Our server was polite and did not bother us by checking back too frequently. We had one of the side tables for two with the armchairs (which were squishier than expected - my boyfriend had to help me up) and overall we had a lovely date night.

Finally a restaurant with excellent food, good service, and an atmosphere that is quiet and dignified. On my wife's birthday, we could carry on a conversation in normal voice volume. Service was professional and timed just right-- no rush. Special birthday cake was gratis-- nice touch
Will return!!

For my fiancee's birthday we needed something a cut above. In general, Ruth's Chris fits that bill. I have dined at other Ruth's Chris restaurants in the past and was never disappointed. The prime steaks, accompanied by a serviceable wine list are what floats my boat.

For appetizers, we had only the ahi tuna, which was excellent. My fiancee and I both ordered the 22 oz. rib eye medium rare, which was in both cases done to perfection. I ordered a Caesar salad with mine, which was rather pedestrian, not prepared table-side, and probably used bottled dressing. There were no anchovies to be found. (I am rather picky with Caesar salad, because I have received raves for my own version from many people for many years).

With respect to the service, the restaurant was practically empty on a Wednesday night. In spite of that, the service became less than attentive after the entrees arrived. On two occasions, my wine glass sat empty for several minutes until I finally poured it for myself. The third time, Cesar came by and hastily poured. I was about to say something when he produced a nice birthday dessert for my fiancee, courtesy of Ruth's Chris. That disarmed me and redeemed him. He also brought out a camera to take a picture of us together as a birthday souvenir. Another nice touch by Ruth's Chris.

We ordered espresso. When it arrived, I felt the saucer for a lemon twist and found none. My fiancee did the same. Instead of a sugar cube, the espresso was served with a small container of sugar and artificial sweetener paper packets. Really, folks? This is a big bugaboo of mine. At these prices, espresso should be served properly. The waiter explained that the decision had been made in 2006 to provide the lemon twist only on request. Again, REALLY, FOLKS? Charging $6 for a double espresso, and cheaping out on the accompaniments? That gives me pause.

Overall, it was a nice birthday meal. Yes, I would return, but I would also to see improvements in the areas I mentioned.

The food was amazing as always and the service level was impeccable. However, it’s difficult to enjoy your dinner when guests are overly loud and rude in their drunken conversation. I wish they would ask them to tone it down there were children around that were subjected to this type of behavior. It also seems that the crab fried rice has been unavailable the last two times we dined, which is a bummer.

We waited way too long for our meal to be served. When it did finally arrive at the table Food one steak in the party that appeared to be half the size of a normal steak and over cooked. When we spoke with the manager He said it was because they asked for it to be cooked medium and If it was as thick as the others which were prepared medium-rare they said it would take too long to cook? We waited about an hour from ordering to food arrival, I can’t imagine that’s not enough time to cook all our steaks to their proper temperatures.

They did offer to take it back and remake another one but the wait for a new one again was entirely too long. We had two waitresses, however it was hard to find one as they very rarely stopped by our table. The gaps between courses were long and getting our check was no easy task. There were way too many tables crammed in the dining room, which made them too close together and very loud.

We made a 5:45 reservation hoping to beat the main dinner rush, but didn’t end our visit until close to 8:30. We’ve always had great meals at Ruth Chris previously but this time was sadly a disappointment. For the cost of dining the service and value did not match. It will most likely be a while before or even if we return.

I have been to Ruth Chris before and it was excellent. This time the food was good - but not exceptional. To be fair we ordered off the Magical Dining Month Menu and it was limited - understandably. The servers were awesome (we left them a hefty tip since we were spending less on the dinners). I just felt like the fare on this limited menu wasn't up to par with their regular menu. And the creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were nothing to write home about. Lacking in flavor. Wondering if all the restaurants participating in this Magical Dining Month promotion do the same thing - cut corners on the food on that menu since they are charging less.

We had never visited Ruth's Chris in Lake Mary before so we went with an open mind. Magical Dining Month was an opportunity to do that sooner rather than later. My wife and I found the food to be very good. The 8oz. filet mignon was simply outstanding - extremely tender, flavorful and cooked to perfection. It was a steak as good as I have ever had. The service by Hector was mediocre. He was attentive during the first part of our meal, but seemed to forget about us for the rest of the meal. He never asked if we wanted coffee with our desert. The light was so dim that it was hard to read our check. It took close to 30 minutes to get our checks and pay for them after our meal. What could have been a 90-minute meal ended lasting 2½ hours.
