Ruth's Chris Steak House - Sarasota Ratings and Reviews
Good salads, sides were just okay, creamed spinach overdone and small portions on the veggie plate (in comparison to past visits). In my opinion, they were not "shareable" sizes. Our waitress was aware I wanted my asparagus lightly cooked and when it came out well overcooked, she took it upon herself to bring me fresh, lightly cooked asparagus. I should have mentioned the spinach but did not want to seem like I was complaining as one side was already not correctly cooked. The desserts we selected were delicious. My husband's steak was okay, but not as great as in the past. Overall, a somewhat disappointing visit. The staff was very nice. The food just fell short of our expectations. In lieu of the prices charged, we expect the food to be cooked as expected the first time, and to be "wowed" by our selections. This visit was a miss on that level.
This is only my second time dining at Ruth Chris. However, I can't wait to come back! The service was outstanding and the food was over the top from the presentation down to the after dinner drink. Your waitstaff made us feel like we were the only people in the room but not overly attentive to interfere with our interacting with our friends. I look forward to dining with Ruth Chris again very soon.
We have dined at Ruth Chris over the years and the dress code is clearly marked as you enter the restaurant we always dress up myself in a dress my husband dress pants and dress shirt we have noticed that people are coming in with ripped jeans, shorts, sandals,something you would wear to the beach and it is really upsetting to see such a fancy restaurant not upholding to a dress code. Next there are young children some even as little as babies if I'm going to goto a nice restaurant and spend a quiet evening with my spouse I would like it to be quiet and peaceful not kids running around and crying. The positive note I would highly recommend Rob as your waiter he goes above and beyond to help you out and make sure have everything you need making sure you are highly satisfied we have told several people about Rob and after they have gone to Ruth Chris they always ask for him and no one else! You will not be disappointed!!
The ambiance is very nice. The steaks were flavorful with a buttery taste. One in our party ordered the Chilean Sea Bass which was awful. Thankfully, the steaks were big enough that we gave her some and she was satisfied. They were too timid to send it back.
Disappointed! After having an excellent experience at Ruth's in North Carolina last month our experience of undercooked steak on a cool plate (they stress the point that their plates are 500 degrees) , cold ravioli and lackluster sides left us very disappointed. The saving grace was the extra attention to my teens birthday celebration and rapid response to cure the food issues. I will probably patronize the other fine steak restaurants before thinking of returning.
Our waiter Rob was amazing. We were four couples out for our monthly couples date and our first one at Ruth Chris.
Everything from start to finish of our meal was perfect. My ribeye was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten, the sweet potato casserole was incredible as well as the bread pudding dessert.
This restaurant is a total food experience! From the first greeting you receive until departure- hands down a wonderful dining experience. We had friends who were visiting us and they had never been to Ruth's Chris-- they were very impressed to say the least! Their steaks are simply amazing and we enjoyed a full course meal and Tobias created an amazing hand cocktails! ( big thank you!). Janel, assisted by Noah, was flawless in their suggestions and presentation. Thanks to the manager who is always making the rounds to see if everything is great! Stuffed chicken breast, sirloin, ribeye or filet and lobster tail- amazing!!!
Took my husband there for Father's Day. Everything was really wonderful. I did order a Caesar salad with. Y meal and when it was delivered the young man asked me if I wanted freshly ground pepper. I told him just a little bit and he gave me exactly what I requested. It was just the perfect amount.
We will return again for special occasions.
,We dine at the Sarasota Ruth Chris frequently and we really love to have Rob as our waiter he is a wonderful waiter ,very prompt making sure our meal is 100% we cannot say enough good things about him. If anyone is ever wanting to dine or is a regular at Ruth Chris you will not be disappointed with him at all in fact let him know that Sandy sent you ! I do however have some issues with the ambience I really think the place needs a good makeover it just feels old especially when I have been to other Ruth Chris's. The other thing I have noticed is the dress code at this Ruth Chris there are people coming in with beach clothing which this place is a higher end restaurant with a sign outside saying proper attire we show up with dressy clothing and would think that people that walk in seeing others dressed up would see the dress code is not that attire. The noise level is not usually bad only if someone decides to bring a baby or young children so that is why I rated the noise level the way I did. Other than that we love going there and it's mainly because of the service that we get from Rob he treats us like family and food is second.
We have come to Ruth Chris for our anniversary for the past 15 years. We have enjoyed services at the Atlanta, Baltimore and now Sarasota locations. We have always received excellent service from all locations. The food is impeccable as my wife normally does not eat much meat but always looks forward to the Ruth Chris filet!
Sarasota is our new home and we look forward to spending many special occasions at our "new" Ruth Chris.
Special thanks to Brian, Jack and our server Jennifer!!! GREAT TEAM!!

8 of us were there celebrating 2 birthdays ... we were seated at a nice table in the back which gave us privacy. It was not clear who (out of the 2 ladies) would be our server(s) ... then we discovered it was actually both of them ... one had ZERO personality and seemed perturbed we asked to see the Savor Sarasota menu ... for goodness sakes - it's Savor Sarasota -- that menu should already be on the table! We had to continue to ask for wine refills ... it took about 30 minutes for one of the servers to take our meal choices ...
Food was wonderful .. service was lousy.
We surprised our friend with her birthday dinner. The staff had a signed birthday card, confetti, and a candle with her chocolates. She was sooooooo thrilled to have dinner at this elegant special restaurant. Thank you for making her happy Birthday memories.
AMAZING experience as ALWAYS! We dine there pretty regularly, and it's ALWAYS a perfect night out. Steak was cooked to perfection. Chocolate Martini was to die for, and dessert was delicious. Our previous waiter, Chris, even came over to the table to chat with us. I didn't realize we could choose our waiter when we visit. Although our waiter James was great, Chris is by far one of the best waiters we've ever encountered, and his bubbly and upbeat personality fits perfectly with ours. We will definitely be dining with him from now on. Thanks again for a perfect night out.
Upon entry we were askedif it was a special occasion. Our 31st wedding anniversary! We were shown to a corner table given a signed by staff Happy Anniversary card, rose petals placed on table. Our server , Deborah, provided extra special service. Excellent dinner, the tenderest steak this side of Kobe beef. Deborah took a photo of us, served us a special dessert. A wonderful experience and fantastic meal.
AMAZING as ALWAYS! Food cooked to perfection. Service was AMAZING! Luis was our waiter and he was the BEST one we've had yet! Jennifer took our special order for desserts with writing on the plate and it was 1000% correct and right on time. I'm speechless when it comes to the service we received tonight. These two made it perfect! Thank you so much! We'll be seeing you again very soon!
We always enjoy a Ruth's Chris dinner and the food was excellent. However it was Mother's Day, the restaurant was overcrowded and the staff was working hard to keep things flowing. It was very noisy and conversation was difficult. We have been to many Ruth's Chris in other cities, and even been to this one many times, but this time we were very disappointed with the lack of a dress code, or if there is one, it is not being applied. People were dressed in basketball shorts and tee shirts, old jeans, less than casual outfits that you would expect to see at a burger place or a pizza parlor. We are not old and stuffy, but when we spend what is a substantial amount of money for dinner, we expect a more upscale atmosphere than we experienced this time. We had dinner at one in Bonita Springs a few months ago, many men wore sports coats, some with ties. The dining room noise was subdued and conversation flowed easily. With other choices available for excellent steak dinners, we will have to reconsider returning to this particular one.
This restaurant always hits a homerun. From the moment you drive up to the restaurant, the ambience is perfect. The staff is absolutely wonderful, the food is outstanding every single time. Our waiter, Tobias, is truly phenomenal. He offers great insight on the special offerings and his wine pairing suggestions are spot on. Whenever we want to be perfectly comfortable and simply know our meal will be outstanding-- the choice us always Ruth's Chris.
We have dined at Ruth's Chris restaurants around the country. What made this evening so enjoyable is that they hit the target on everything. It was our nine year-old granddaughter's birthday and the wait staff really made her feel special. From the birthday confetti on the table to her name written on her dessert plate it was really fun. The food was exceptional and everyone (party of seven) enjoyed the evening.
You are going to have an amazing tasting experience from salad to dessert. Don't miss the chop salad; it has a variety of ingredients built into shredded lettuce, with just enough, not too much of custom-made dressing. My husband didn't want to "just take a taste", because he was inhaling the lobster bisque, and was enjoying every minute of it.
Rob was our server, and I don't know if we were just lucky, or if he is an example of all the waiters, but he was a delight. He seemed genuinely interested in what we were thinking of ordering, and wished Jim a Happy Birthday, and told him there was a free dessert coming his way. The main entree did not disappoint! Jim's filet was cooked to perfection; and my grilled shrimp was delicious. The prices are higher than most regular restaurants, and the quality and ambience of this Ruth Chris was worth every penny.
Ruth Steak house, looks semi formal outside of the restaurant, very elegant inside, a little far is you coming from Bradenton, the place is located in Sarasota, like 40 minute drive. Our evening was lovely, but on the expensive side.
Steaks were good, not excellent, i have tried better steaks at Benjamin Steak House and Peter Lugger in NYC.
