My husband and I were celebrating birthdays with friends. This was not what we have come to expect from Ruth’s Chris. Steaks were over cooked. My salmon was not cooked as requested. Server was somewhat indifferent and we didn’t see him again after food served and he asked if we wanted to order dessert. Which we did and then he brought and served complimentary birthday desserts. The other dessert went home with us. This doesn’t mean we won’t try again but for the money spent was a very disappointing experience.

On vacation in St Pete and decided to reserve a table at Ruth’s Chris for Thanksgiving dinner. There was a server and an assistant but was still very slow and inconsistent. Food runners brought food out and forgot items as well as gave dishes to wrong people. Had 3 orders of lobster bisque, 2 of them were over salted. Ordered Filet Oscar and they forgot the Oscar. When ‘apologizing’ admitted they burnt it but still brought the steak without (which was cooked perfectly). 7 minutes later the Oscar came out. Definitely expect more from a $250 tab (not including drinks which they comped, 1 Stella and 1 glass of wine) for the ‘trouble’.

Excellent meal, great service. Due to very few restaurants in the area being open, this one was extremely busy. As such, the noise level was a bit higher than usual. The food was excellent, the service superb.

As always, the food and the service were exceptional. We sat on the bar side and I didn’t like it as much as the more intimate side of the restaurant. There was a room behind us, I assume an office. Two or three times during our meal a bright light came from the room. It was so bright, the light disturb the mood a little bit. Great meal but I don’t think I would sit on the bar side again.

Great restaurant. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 was because my steak came out a little off the mark. But still good overall.

A family and I arrived on site in time for our reservation which was 6:45 on Saturday October 16th. There was about a 10-minute wait still before being seated. One seated and then took them another 15 minutes before coming over to greet us. After taking our drink order took them yet another 15 minutes to bring it out. We did not order liquor initially we ordered Sprite and lemonade. The lemonade was for a 4-year-old and it was brought out in a glass not a cup with a lid. That had to be requested after the 4-year-old couldn't hold up that heavy of a glass dropped it and it spilled all over. The two sprites that were delivered were carbonated water. So far you would expect me to be given this review to some place like Carrabba's but this is Ruth Chris. Still having to wait another 10 minutes for somebody to come back to then wait for another 10 minutes for them to bring back Sprite that had Sprite in it and eliminate in a styrofoam cup with a lid. Keep in mind we use our dinner napkins in order to soak up the lemonade ourselves. There was no assistance in cleaning that up. Once the appetizers and starters came out the evening began but I'm an hour into my evening with my family and already aggravated. I specifically ordered I just want salmon and a baked potato. I know the waiter understood me because he joked by saying a heavy meal. Which to some people might be offensive because why are you offering your opinion about the amount of food that I ordered. When the food came out everyone's meal was correct except for mine. My meal had salmon sitting on a bed of sauteed spinach with shrimp on top. No baked potato. Once again you would expect that from a two-star restaurant not Ruth Chris. A restaurant that there's a main waiter and then there is an assistant. So let's discuss the assistant. From what I can see his role is to remove the plates off the table when people are done and I'm assuming pack up leftovers into-go boxes. Did not do this until end of meal.

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse made our 21 Anniversary memorable. The service was great and the food was even better. Highly recommend for any special occasion. The only aspect of our night we didn’t love was the music (tempo was a bit too fast for a romantic evening).

The service was superb from start to finish. Our server Christopher was beyond great... probably the best server I've ever had at any restaurant. Food was very tasty. My wife thought the food was a bit salty, but she's sensitive to salt, where as I really like it.

We love this Ruth’s Chris Steak House, especially in St. Petersburg, FL. The seafood tower is very special. Everyone adored it. Salads are so very fresh & wonderfully prepped. Steaks are to perfection. Service cannot be beat. I love this place & we return often because they are so very special. Whoever the GM is here knows their business. Thanks to all for making my sister’s birthday so special. Though we eat here often for regular meals they went a step above tonight.

Awful pathetic for a Ruth’s Chris. Hostesses were very rude told us they forgot about us. Didn’t get a server, water, menus or anything for over 15 mins. When we finally got a waiter, he was about as bland and unfriendly of a server/human as possible. Wanted to laugh about how he would possibly get tips with his awful personality. Truly embarrassing for Ruth’s Chris. Mark was our waiter. He was about as bad as it gets. Zero personality zero friendliness. It’s sad that we didn’t expect much based on our last visit, but def don’t dine there expecting any sort of what should be Ruth’s chris service! Terrible terrible terrible!
