When I made our reservation through Open Table, I mentioned it was for our anniversary. Apparently the people at Ruth's Chris pay attention to that very much as at least 3 people wished us Happy Anniversary while we were there. The staff was excellent, always there when needed without being on top of us all night. The food was excellent, we both had the 3 course meal with steak. Perfectly done and it was so tender I could have cut it with a butter knife. The sides were delicious and I recommend to everyone to get the sweet potato casserole. My wife who is not a big sweet potato fan loved it. Just be careful. The crust stays quite hot. The dinner was everything I was hoping for when we decided to try it out. We will be back.

My husband and I were in town for the Redskins versus. Buccaneers game. We found out one of our favorite restaurants (Ruth Chris) was located within walking distance of our hotel. We were excited just thinkin about the sweet potato casserole dish. Ruth Chris did not fail. "A MUST" when visiting the Tampa area.

Meal was incredibly rushed, so we were very disappointed. Entree came before I was even done with salad and I felt rushed trying to finish my glass of wine because our food came so quickly. My husband and I were hoping for a quiet relaxing evening with good ambience but it felt like a meal from a standard restaurant where they were trying to turn tables over quickly.

Ruth's Chris has been a long time standard for an American steakhouse. My last visit the steaks and service did not disappoint. However, their prices have increased and I no longer feel the steaks, although delicious are worth the prices they charge. Also they have increased the number of patrons eating in the dining areas, and there is little space, and even less privacy. Please go for a delicious steak, but be prepared to pay out the nose and don't expect an intimate dining experience.

Steak was great.. salads were great.. everything great until my wife bit into her chocolate delight desert and pull a hair out of her mouth... gross.. and my desert, which was berries.. were all frozen solid... the hair part was nasty.. glad we already eat the steak. They were apologetic and just wanted to give us another desert, but my wive was gross out so we passed

This was our first visit. We had an amazing experience. Carlos took incredible care of us. My filet was perfect and my husband's rib eye was delightful. The sweet potato casserole should be a controlled substance! It could be listed as a dessert too. We can't wait to come back.
