My husband and I had a night out with friends. The power went out near the end of the night and we had the rest of our meal by candlelight. It was fabulous! The management, Steve, Cartwright and staff handled the situation wonderfully! Everyone was so accommodating and made sure we were comfortable and that we enjoyed the rest of our evening. Hat's off to the entire staff working that evening!
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.
Birthday celebration the staff was exceptional!
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.
It was an excellent meal with great service!
Awesome! Riley our waiter was very attentive and had great suggestions on new dishes to try. He never let our wine glasses go dry. My steak was perfect and the banana fosters cheesecake incredible.
Dinner was excellent! Service not up to par . I noticed a function on a side room and there were 2 large parties dining near us . Noise level was higher than usual.
Great food and service. First time customer an not disappointed. Little surprised no mention of anniversary celebration. Did list it as reason for visit. Will return.
Great food never disappoints
Server brought out entrees before salads. Had to send them back then it took a while for the salads. Clearly the waiter forgot to place the salad order.
Food was cooked to perfection
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.
Everything was top notch except, did not expect to get put into a side little room that was crammed with other people
Food was prepared well and tasted very good. Our server Tobias is EXCELLENT, he’s taken good care of us on previous visits to this location! Great service, personable, knowledgeable, attentive, and great with the kids.
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.
Delightful Anniversary dinner, they had rose petals on the table and a special dessert. Food is always so delicious.
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?
Great food great service the meat is expensive.
Consistent high quality food and service. We were in one of small side rooms and the noise level was great. Otherwise the restaurant is noisy.
Service, food, and ambiance were spot on. It was our anniversary and everyone that served us was congratulating us and even took a picture of us which we loved!
Excellent meal good service minor service omissions but a positive experience and would come again
The atmosphere and decor are inpeccible. The wait staff is conscientious. Service is commendable. Food is exceptional. Consistency in quality. A real dining experience.
90th birthday party, service by our waitress made the evening so enjoyable!
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.
Always fabulous! Celebrating my parents 62 nd anniversary. They had rose petals and a card signed by the entire staff on the table when we arrived. Service and food were great! A perfect evening!
Staff were amazingly friendly and helpful, attentive but not in your face. Even bus boys were extremely courteous and obliging. A most delightful experience.
Food was tremendous!!
They have an excellent happy hour, great bartenders and drinks. The staff, service, and atmosphere was very good, and all the food from appetizer, salad, steaks and chops, to dessert was excellent. Very enjoyable dinner.
The meal was exactly what you would expect from Ruth’s Chris....excellent.
Our server, Deborah, was delightful which made our birthday celebration more pleasurable.
Service was wonderful as usual
Food and ambiance were excellent. Editor was foo solicitious.
Food was delicious. Server was just ok. The busser/helper was great and personable.
Excellent service , food was done perfectly , wine selection rich .
Great for a special occasion
Celebrated our anniversary at Ruth's. Fabulous food and service as usual. Would recommend the crab stacks for an appetizer. Great wine selection too! Wonderful place to celebrate special occasions.
Food was great. Ruth classic meals are a good value. Service was outstanding.
It was great! Service, ambiance & food, all exceptional!
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!
Food was very good but we waited a long time (almost an hour) after our salads.
