Outstanding service. This location seems to infuse a sense of purpose and care in servers that places this location as the BEST of the locations we have ever visited.

The meal was superb, as always.

The chocolate cake was very good but very small. Not good for sharing. The cheesecake, on the other hand was huge, tasty, and was shared by five nicely.

2 Filets, 2 mashed potatoes, 1 broccolli, 1 mushrooms, 3 glasses of wine. $250 with tip.

The steak is prime beef, so great quality. Everything else was cooked perfectly. The mushrooms were very salty, but went well with the steak.

Overall value is subjective and relative. It depends on what you’re looking for. It’s nice to have this option. I think I could get just as tasty a meal at Longhorn but not the same ambiance...but for 1/3 the bill.

Wow! There certainly is a difference between standards depending on the state.
The Ruth's Chris restaurants in Jersey and NYC are five stars all the way. Apparently NOT down here in Florida.
The service was up to the standards I'm used to but that's where the similarities end.
I ordered the Crab Stack which I love. (normally) The mango wasn't ripe (it shouldn't be crunchy!) and the few bits of avocado (that I could see) were brownish. I ordered the lamb chops which again, I normally love. I asked for medium rare and they were bloody rare. They were also smaller here. We all agreed that the portions in general, were definitely smaller. For some reason our meals were all served on very small plates too. It was very busy and LOUD being that it was Easter Sunday. Did they run out of regular sized plates? Before our meal came we heard a loud crash that sounded like a stack of plates. Did they all break? My three tiny lamb chops barely fit on the plate they were served on.
My wife ordered a glass of Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon. Not to sound snooty, but I know what it should taste like. Either it was old, stale, or it wasn't Robert Mondavi.
Very disappointed.

This is a very 'tired' restaurant. It's decor is dark and old.....and had a musty smell.
The greeters were welcoming; our waiter, Robert, was delightful and attentive.
The steaks were well prepared.
The wedge salad with blue cheese was tasty but skimpy on dressing; we asked for additional.
Overall very expensive when there are other steakhouse options of more value and better ambiance.

Overall the food was very good but the experience was not what we have come to expect at a Ruth Chris.

My wife did not receive what she ordered. Later explained that maybe the server did not hear her. If he didn’t why didn’t he clarify. I ordered the shrimp and steak combo and received only the steak. When I asked the server he stated something like “ you probably received a larger steak”

This is not Longhorn or Outback. When we go to Ruth Chris we expect a Ruth Chris experience.

Need I say more?

We had my granddaughter's 21st birthday dinner there. The table was decorated with sprinkles of happy birthday, balloons, and even a card signed by the the staff. Service was impeccable. Our server Jeanie was friendly, informative, and always on top of drink refills. Courses came out in a timely manner. Everything was delicious. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Side dishes also delicious and good sized portions. But make sure you save room for their desserts. We had creme brulee, cheesecake, bread pudding all were awesome, and obviously made fresh in their kitchen. We will be back as this was a wonderful experience.

I have eaten at Ruths Chris many times in other locations and have never had a bad experience until now. The Sarasota location was by far, not the famous RC experience. We had to wait on service. The steaks were cold and not flavorful. Most of our meal was cold.

The kids gave us a gift card for Ruth Chris, so we saved it for a special occasion. The service and ambience are great, but I give the food a C . For the prices, it should be so much better.
$60 for a steak with no salad and no sides.
I really liked my wine, which was reasonably priced. I had a 12 oz. ribeye which was cooked perfectly but was very greasy. They do cook the steaks in butter.
The side dishes were unremarkable. Garlic mashed potatoes and broccolini.
I did Really like the butternut squash bisque.
I just felt it was unnecessarily expensive.

We had a great 50th wedding anniversary dinner at Ruth's Chris Sarasota. The staff was great, the dinner was superb, the service was wonderful and the deference they gave to us and the complementary deserts were very nice as was the anniversary card from the staff. We have celebrated our anniversary with dinner at this Ruth's Chris 8 of the last 10 years, and we love it! Thanks, Ruth's Chris Sarasota!

All of us have been to Ruth’s Chris for dinner, two of us at this location and the third member of our party in Phoenix. We all agreed that on this occasion, the usual high standards and quality were absent. There were several servers, each of whom told us what responsibilities they had. Our food arrived but one of the side dishes was missing. We mentioned it to several of the serving staff and finally it arrived. The server who delivered it had an excuse for the delay, which we didn’t quite understand. Overall the food was OK, but the team approach by the serving staff was a failure. It didn’t appear that there was any communication between them. Two of us were at this restaurant last spring. We had a very pleasant lady serve us, and everything was at the standard we expected.
