French onion soup is one of the best and they helped make it special for my birthday with decorations and free dessert. Steak is the best I’ve had. Hard to beat the 500 degree plate that keeps the steak warm throughout the meal.

Prices seemed to increase from last visit. However we seem to be experiencing that everywhere we go now. As far as food quality the Lamb Chops were perfect. Wife's filet was a little on the tough side for a filet but had the usual great taste at Ruths. Been going to Ruths all over for years and service here was top notch. I think Curtis was our server and he was all over it and a professional server

Always have a fantastic meal at Ruth's Chris Steak House - St. Petersburg, but the cowboy ribeye (their bone-in ribeye option) at medium-rare is never consistent. Usually, it is overcooked and more on the medium end. Yesterday's dinner was for our 1-year anniversary and the restaurant put red rose petals and a signed card on our table, which was a nice touch and every staff member wished us a Happy Anniversary which was very sweet, but we had to return both of our steaks and wait for our meal since they were both overcooked and medium even though we specifically ordered them medium-rare-rare. Their food is tasty though!

Christopher was our waiter and he is absolutely top notch. He is one of the best waiters we have ever had anywhere. Christopher is a definite asset to your restaurant. The people who helped him were also very nice.

First off the service was indeed excellent .... they went out of their way to insure a fab dining experience..... I do expect this being a higher end restaurant in this area. We ask for wet towels for our hands after the tower and the waiter brought us wet and warm napkins to us..... I don't know if this was something you do but I was very pleased and if it is not a part of your service I highly recommend....
The tower was indeed as good as the last time we had.
Your house salad was as I expected ... just the rite amount of dressing and the salad vegs were fresh.
The Chateaubriand w/Lobster was also very good as well as the mashed potatoes.
Now the negatives : the Lobster bisque tasted a little pasty ... and instead of the "creamed spinach" tasting creamy it also tasted pasty. It tasted more like flour than cream. I have made both . ( I am not a very good cook) but the Bisque I made from scratch did not taste like flour.
Last and happy note: .. after we had been seated one of the male hostess came over to our table and put some "Happy Birthday" confette on our table .... nice touch.
Again the service was great. and I thought we over tipped the people who looked after us.

They cooked 2 of the 4 steaks we ordered wrong. Unacceptable for a steakhouse. One of them was cooked wrong twice and was taken off bill as it was not edible! So one person didn’t eat!

We were asked if we were visiting for a special occasion, we were. They asked for a moment to get set up. When we were taken to our table in an unoccupied area of the restaurant, there were rose petals on the table!

Little touches like that, combined with very attentive personnel and absolutely delicious food will definitely have us returning!

Globally really satisfied of the food and the service. My improvement opportunities are :
- please clean the table before you allocate to a client
- please provide forks and knives with the starters as well as plates when sharing

As usual the St Petersburg Ruth Chris is one of our favorite RC's in the southeast. The waitress was great and the food a usual was excellent. We just bought a second home in downtown St Pete and will be hanging out. We will be back soon. Actually next week.

the hostess was rude and nasty -
once we sat down at our tabe the server brought us our drinks and took our dinner order and that was the last we saw of him until the food came.

beenoutriding, hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you brining your concerns to our attention and will work to ensure this doesn't happen again soon.

We love RC in general. This particular experience was not great. I believe that because we had 2 kids with us (ages around 12), we were not treated as well as we usually are. They tried to seat us in the first table, right behind the host stand where it is loudest and busiest with foot traffic (during covid no less) while the ENTIRE restaurant was empty - we had reservations so we weren't just walk-ins. Asked to be relocated, and host was irritated. Maybe just ultra lazy but more likely because we had 2 kids with us they thought they'd save nice tables for other guests. Also thought the wait staff had a generally less helpful attitude b/c industry believes 1)kids are bad tables and 2) women don't tip well. Grew up in the industry with family that owned multiple restaurants and these have always been bad myths. We tipped staff well as I always do, despite less than great overall treatment - cuz I'm industry - but RC needs to up it's game, stop trying to put groups with older kids or just women at crappiest tables and being less attentive overall. You never know who you are serving.

Great birthday celebration. They put little Happy Birthday confetti on the table, prior to us being seated and brought out a little cheesecake with my Happy Birthday Maureen written in chocolate on the plate with fresh berries and even a candle. A thoughtful and nice touch. The calamari was to die for and the steaks were cooked to perfection. So delicious.

We revisited after a fairly negative experience. This time service was excellent and the food outstanding. While prices are still fairly high it was a very nice evening and we will return. Great food is expensive.
