I love, love, love their steaks! I just have to have the ribeye everytime I come. It's always perfectly seasoned, cooked, and served on a sizzling plate. My favorite side is the Creamed Spinach and the Mushrooms. My husband had the lamb chops and he is still raving about them. Bravo!

We celebrated Father’s Day at Ruth’s Chris in Sarasota. As recently relocated Florida residents, we are checking out all the Ruth’s Chris locations in the state. We are familiar with the menu so ambiance & service are what make the experience joyful for us. The ambiance worried me after seeing pictures online. I needn’t have worried. Everything was perfect: beautiful relaxed setting, excellent table service and a stop by the manager, Tania. Thank you for a memorable Father’s Day in the best sense: hubby was very happy and primed for his power nap! Thank you!

Very, very disappointed. Placed at a poor table, surrounded by large parties

Very slow service. Food mediocre. Soups came out cold

Not to be expected of an upmarket restaurant

Would never recommend

Poor management

We felt we were rushed by our server in order to have us finish and leave for we were there for a Savor Sarasota Special. Server cleaned off the table while one person was still eating and took an unfinished side dish.

We went to enjoy Savor Sarasota. Our waiter clearly was not happy about this. He was aloof, inattentive and made it clear through body language and lack of attention that he didn’t want to waste his time with us. This impacted our dining experience.

I can’t express enough how amazing our experience was here. Richard (GM) was so accommodating. We were a group of 7 women celebrating our girlfriend’s last few days as a single woman and reserved the last time slot available. You might think a 9:30 reservation, party of 7, restaurant closing at 10, would mean less-than delightful staff but everyone was amazing. Ryan, our server, treated us like we were his first table of the day. The food was spectacular and made the experience that much more enjoyable. Pictures taken, memories made. So happy we picked Ruth’s Chris.

We came here for Savor Sarasota to give it a try. If you like the steak there it was a good deal but a pile of fat and gristle remained. It was supposed to be a fillet. I have never seen so many non edible pieces in any filet before. Maybe they went to cheap route for the special? I wouldn’t go back again because if that. They are expensive and there are many other cheaper options at other local steak houses with much better meat quality. The salad was fine and the potatoes were good. Not blown away with the cheese cake. Kind of disappointing food wise. The service though was very good.

One steak very under cooked, sent back and still very undercooked. I also felt like we didn't measure up to thier standards and the waitstaff was very standoffish. I vacation in Siesta Key regularly and would not pick there to eat again.

My husband & I had diner last Friday. The food is so good. Started out with the steakhouse salad & my husband had the Caesar. Excellent. Then we both had fillets which were cooked perfectly along with 2 sides. Mashed potatoes & creamed spinach. Topped off with there cheesecake. Our server, Rob, was so accommodating. He really made our dining experience one of the best we've ever had. Wine list is really good as well. We will be back.

I asked for an 11 ounce filet medium with a pink center. What I received was a well done filet.

Do not care for over cooked steak, especially for the price that was charged.

My husband had the 12 oz ribeye, and he loved it, cooked perfectly. He had the "classic" pre-fixe menu, which includes a soup or salad, a side, the entree and dessert, which was a pretty good deal for ~$58. Unfortunately, none of the fish selections was pre-fixe, so I had the sea bass, but it was positively drenched and swimming in butter, and found several bones in the fillet. The side was garlic mashed potatoes, again WAY too buttery. The sea bass was $43, if it was exquisite, that would be one thing, but it was not.

We are not big eaters nor are we drinkers so Ruth's Chris is probably somewhat of an overkill for us. Two filet mignons and two plates of vegetables is probably a bit crazy when the total tab comes to $157 including tip. Although we can afford it, we will probably look for better alternatives in the future. Even the $49 filet was a bit tougher than we usually experience for that cut of meat.

We came here for a special occasion as we have always done for the past 10+ years. This was the first time we were very disappointed with the experience. We used to go here because they made you feel special. This visit was just like any other restaurant. They did not acknowledge our anniversary like they have done every year in the past. Things did not seem as upscale as they have in the past and for what we pay for Ruth Chris, we did expect that. I sent a private message weeks ago via Open Table to the restaurant to express our disappointment and they never even replied. We will be looking for a alternate special occasion place closer to home next time.

I always enjoy Ruth's Chris dining experience. The waiters are patient kind and warm when explaining some of the different option-choices on the menu. Would not want to have steak in any other restaurant....simply prepared.....succulent and delicious.

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.

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.
