Food and service were outstanding! They sat us in a separate room so we were not concerned risking going out to dinner because of covid. Excellent experience!

My husband and I haven’t had many dinners out this last year but have always had a great experience at this establishment and this was no exception. We went on a Thursday night in hopes to avoid any large crowds. Was very pleased to see everyone wearing masks and we were seated in our own little nook away from other patrons. The food was delicious and the service on point. Can’t wait to go back. Thank you Ruth’s Chris for taking the needed Covid precautions while also providing an amazing dining experience to a couple who doesn’t go out as much as they used to.

Ruth Chris, once you’ve had a steak there, most other steakhouses just don’t compare. The food isn’t cheap but as with life, you get what you pay for. Great place for an anniversary, dinner with friends or special occasions for meat eaters.

The food was good, but too many menu changes has ruined the dining experience for us. No more side of mushrooms , no crab fried rice, no white chocolate bread pudding and never any Blanton’s bourbon on the bar. There also needs to be a dress code policy that is enforced. At the upscale prices that this restaurant commands, slippers and jogging pants should not be allowed. The service is excellent as always and Lori and her assistants are always top notch.

We made a 10:30 reservation, they called and asked us if we could do 10 instead. We agreed, however turbo-hélice time we were rushed out. Ruined the experience and ambiance in general. Cesar was our server

We were there for New Years Eve and were seated in a small conference room so the ambiance was not great. The au gratin potatoes were under cooked. The steaks were perfect and the bread pudding was amazing!

The Ruth’s Chris in lake Mary feels a bit outdated. Also, dress code doesn’t seem to be enforced. We saw someone wearing a ball cap in the restaurant and we checked the dress code prior to coming. It state that ball caps aren’t allowed otherwise my husband would’ve worn his inside as well.

BUT with that said, the food is still UH-MAZING! The service was OUTSTANDING and although we didn’t drink, I do know the drinks are still awesome from previous visits.

12/25/20- Christmas We had reservations but did add an additional one person; however we were told the bar/lounge or patio area would be our only choice. However, others came into the restaurant without a reservation. The service took forever, the food was cold as well as the entrees. The waiter said the kitchen was busy. On the patio there were only two tables being served including our table. There was a hair found in the sour cream. The coffee and tea were cold and we actually ate our sides before our entrees were served since the food was not done and it had to be cooked longer. This was a very unusual cold day for Florida and they did have heaters but the one at our table did not work. They finally changed the heater with another one after we asked several times but unfortunately we had completed our dining and wanted to leave.

Although I have to say the other occasions we visited this restaurant we had no issues.

Christmas dinner at Ruth Chris

Very nice decorating for the holidays, front desk staff very attentive and restaurant is setup to promote social distancing. We were a bit curious whether they would pack the restaurant or maintain social distancing and I think they found a good middle ground.

It took forever to get our initial drink order, just tea and soft drinks, nothing special but they already served bread and appetizer was coming out when we received our first drinks. I think our server was going between the main dining room, the bar area dining tables and kitchen so he was caught between these area instead of being able to focus on one area.

Menu is adjusted “due to covid” and does not have all the same items they used to have. What we noticed missing was the stuffed mushrooms appetizer and side order of mushrooms to go with the steak. What did the mushrooms do to deserve being cut from the menu?

We had instead the BBQ Shrimp which was awesome as always and the lobster bisque which was also good..

Dinner we decided on the porterhouse for two and think they forgot to salt it before grilling.. It was plain and lacked any seasoning which was a disappointment.

Sides of potatoes au gratin and creamed spinach were great.. I though the potatoes au gratin were supposed to be sliced but these were diced into squares. Both were good nonetheless.

Dessert we decided on the chocolate sin cake and maybe it was our mistake but we expected the same like in the past, a small round chocolate cake with berries, chocolate sauce, berry syrup and whipped cream. Instead it was a small slice of a type of chocolate cake and tasted very heavily of coffee. All of use did not like it and sent it back. Again, it was on the menu so we assumed it was the same cake like they always served in the past. Maybe they should indicate on the menu a new or updated item, it would help..

Overall it was just ok, definitely could have been better like it was in the past.

Don’t count on being able to order the Chilled Seafood Tower. Last night was the SECOND time we’ve been to Ruth’s for the Tower and were told it was not available. Bad form Ruth’s for not having a signature item available.
The food we had was very good, as was the service. No complaints there, but I have to down-rate them due to the unavailable menu item.

Had a reservation on a Thursday at 4:45pm and we ordered the porterhouse steak at 5:00pm, when the restaurant was at about 10% capacity. About 5 minutes later we were informed that they were out of the porterhouse. Really...how does a steakhouse run out of porterhouse steak at 5:00pm, when they are at 10-15% capacity? My wife had been looking forward to porterhouse steak for a week, since I made the reservation.
So she order lamb, which comes out burnt black! So bad that she has to return it. So we shared my meal while we waited for her's. Of course, I was through with my meal when she was served 20 minutes later.
Probably my last trip to Ruth Chris Steak(?) House!

We had the cowboy ribeye and it was amazing! Also, the bread pudding was just simply delicious. We had the creamed spinach and the lobster macaroni and cheese. The spinach was cold and Mac and cheese was warm not hot. All and all we really enjoyed our night out. We will be back.

Dine here often as our Executive office is next door. Always a positive experience. Although since we entertain international business associates, wish they had a more creative alternative for vegetarian choice(s) other than salads and potatoes. Understand it's a steak house, but it's the only upscale restaurant in this area otherwise have to drive to Winter Park for alternative options.

Two of three of us had steaks. One was tough and the other was way overcooked. A second offering to replace the well done steak that was to be medium rare was raw. One of us had turkey as it was Thanksgiving and it was the processed rolled kind. Manager did take money off bill but we won’t go back there. Such a shame about the steaks at a restaurant famous for steaks. Not up to Ruth’s Chris standards.

My wife and i have been going to Ruth's Chris steak house for over 20 years. Not this particular one but west palm beach and Chicago depending on where we were living at the time. I only have two observations that are not bad just observations: what happened to the tomatoes cheese salad? we both loved that, second: I know its Florida but can we stop shorts and baseball caps.......PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!! If i am paying close to $200 for a meal I really think you should have some class. When we would go with her brother or father
the men at least wore blazers,

Steak and sides were excellent, along with the service. However, the wine is ridiculously overpriced (at least 3x the bottle price).
