    My wife ordered a petite filet mignon , we both did. We ordered it well done no pink. My was fine, not burnt. My wife’s was rare. We sent hers back and when it came back it was like shoe leather. I gave my wife half of mine. The manager came over after the waitress told her to. The steak was taken off of the bill. They tried to make it right but my wife was all upset so the meal was not good.

    Ordered filet medium. Came out a little too rare. Should have sent it back, but didn’t want to hold up others from eating. The creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes were delicious as was the steak salad to start!!

    Terrible experience. Our third time with issues so bad at this Ruth’s Chris and second we left without food. One third of tables were empty so no good excuse. We sat for 25 minutes at table with water only. Waiter told us twice getting bread but never did and never took our order. We left with no dinner. This is a specific location issue. Have had great food and service at others but will never go back to this one sadly

    Best steak that we ever had. Cooked to perfection and served by a staff of attentive, kind and ultra professional people. Erin, our server was extreamly attractive, well spoken and very graceful in the conduct of her duty. Erin’s professional demeanor reflects pride upon herself and her chosen profession. She sets the standard for a 5 star establishment. Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse should be proud of their employee choice.

    We were celebrating our 49th Anniversary of meeting in Athens Greece. As always we were greeted with a Happy Anniversary statement and directed to our table. The Geeter offered menus and the waitress was very soon available and also greeted us cordially. Our food arrived as promised and as always met all of our expectations in quantity and quality. We always will come back to the Sarasota restaurant even though there is a closer one to Palmetto. It always feels like a homestyle visit as individuals are treated with an attitude of friendship and comfort. Thank you Ruth's Chris

    We were there last night, was quiet in the bar, ordered 3 meals, 2 of us got the mashed potatoes which were cool on the inside. When the server came over we told him, the dishes were brought back , one person said they didn’t want any but both dishes canceled . We were given a small cheese cake . And at that point we were done our steaks( which were delicious ). The waiter was very good, just a misunderstanding .

    My steak was tad overdone for medium rare. Husbands was perfect. Tables are close to one another. No privacy. In future will request booth. Service was great and food was very good. Sweet potato side dish is like eating dessert. Cheese cake dessert that comes with price fix is fantastic.

    After an effusive welcome, greeting at the table and much attention to our needs by several on the wait staff. We ordered wine and appetizers. After appetizers arrived and breads and butter, we were totally ignored. No one came to take our entree orders or to clear the used appetizer plates. NO ONE. After 35 minutes, Jake walked past our table, heading for the kitchen … we literally had to call out to him for attention. With apologies, he returned to us … took our entree orders, and for more beverages. He did clear the used plating and beverages … making room for what was to come. Our entree’s and sides were delicious, as our appetizers had been. The ignoring service was awful … really diminishing the celebration of our family reunion. Such a disappointment! Cannot imagine going back for another attempt at such poor service! Too bad!
