Had a 5:00 reservation. Ordered an appetizer. Could not even leisurely enjoy it with our bar drinks because our food came out within minutes. Server apologized but it was her fault when she put in the order, should have been paced accordingly. Then we were offered to have a dessert wrapped to go before it even arrived and we were having a glass of wine with our dinners. Trying to get us out in an hour I guess! Rush rush rush us out the door! No worries, I won’t run back to there again! VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Everything was fair, the food was good but not excellent and considering the price it should be excellent. The service was basic at best, we dropped $500 for 4 people with no appetizers or desserts, I expected more for that. There are plenty of restaurants in Sarasota that offer far more for less money. we will not be returning

We dined for our anniversary. They had a table for us immediately which was nicely decorated with rose petals and a card-all nice touches. We waited quite a long time for the waitress to come and take our drink order. Same wait to order our dinner as well. The salad and soup came after a LONG wait. We were maybe 5 minutes into our soup and salad when the main entrees came. My wife was maybe 1/3 done with her salad and the server asked if we wanted the entrees held. We said yes, until we’re finished with soup and salad. There was no room for both courses at the table. We then waited FOREVER after finishing our soup and salad. Nobody checked on us in that period, and we felt like we were being punished?!? The entrees finally came. Shrimp was cold, only the bottom of the steak was hot as the plate was heated. I got the impression that they did indeed just “hold” our meals for the 15-20 extra minutes we waited. It was disappointing for the price being paid. Our glasses were empty quite often. For premium prices, we expect premium service. Disappointing, to say the least. Don’t know when or if we’ll return. There are other high end steakhouses in our city. It may be past time to try them.

Memorable perfection! Celebration of best friends birthday.
Our server, Mark, paid close attention to every detail. Recommend the superb lamb chops, and the world’s best sweet potatoes ~ wow! My friend abundantly enjoyed the scrumptious filet mignon and lobster. Praises to the Chefs!
A delicious, personalized birthday cheesecake was served with a glowing candle. Ruth’s Chris continues to set the restaurant industry standards for impeccable service and fine dining cuisine. We were delighted to meet Tanya, the General Manager, who was the Maestro “behind the scenes.” Bravo!

My family and I decided to try Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse for my dad’s birthday. It was pricey and definitely not in our price range for a casual dinner and more for a special occasion, but since we walked into the restaurant the ambience was amazing. They pulled out our chairs for us and our server Jimmy was AMAZING. My brother even asked him about the name of the restaurant and for a wine recommendation and he was very knowledgeable. Personally, I was still a little hungry when I left the restaurant because I didn’t really like any of the side options so I just ate my steak and lobster but we all agreed that all of the food was wonderful. The steak melted into your mouth. The sides are family style so you can share. Overall, I would go back for a big deal like a graduation!

My wife and I greatly enjoyed her birthday dinner at Ruth Chris. The staff was outstanding with their service and the steak my wife had melted in her mouth. I had sea bass and the portion was bigger that most other restaurants and it was cooked just right.

Service was excellent as was everything we ordered from appetizer to dessert. Wine by the glass is a bit pricey ($27 for 6 oz). Perfect place for a special occasion but too expensive to do very often.

This was a Mother’s Day dinner. We know that this restaurant will never disappoint! The food & the service are always impeccable! Noise level it’s kept to a minimum, even when the restaurant is relatively filled, as it was today. The rose on holidays is such a nice finishing touch. Lastly, we appreciate that the staff continues to be courteous and grateful throughout the experience! Thank you!

Our special occasion place but probably a bit of a frivolous waste. The food is outstanding but we don't cocktail or eat appetizers or order a salad or order dessert or coffee so we are in and out in about an hour with a tab of $160 for two filet mingons , a baked potato and some mushrooms. I wouldn't bother but my spouse enjoys it.

Great service and we both ordered the surf and turf. The lobster tails were delicious but the two steaks were both overcooked. No, we did not complain. We should have cut into the steaks while the server was present, but we didn’t.

The steaks were very tender and cooked just as we asked. The sides were well prepared. The bread was just ok. But it's no bargain; everything is more expensive than at many other restaurants, including the wine list.

Went for our 30th anniversary and they made it very special! Every staff member we encountered wished us a happy anniversary, there were rose petals on the table and a card signed by the staff. Our server, Debra, and her assistant Hayden, were both fantastic. Would highly recommend the bone-in filet!!!! Definitely choose Ruth’s Chris for a special time.
