Great food, good service and great ambiance. It was our anniversary but the waiter didn’t even tell us happy anniversary. $300 later and we still tipped well. Must be this location because the location close to home is a little bit more upscale.

We will be back, however the prior visits were what would be expected at the restaurant level. This last visit. Delayed due to not finding my reservation. I had my confirmation email thank goodness but still plenty of "I dont understand" from front desk. Food was excellent!! As always. Serving staff (3 of them) could not be found, refill of coffee is cold my husband drank it cause they never checked on us, 3rd cup of coffee cold and I had to wave her down after several minutes. Staff would say they would come back with coffee and water refills but never did and my daughter ended up drinking my water. Over 20 minute wait for our dessert. Server walked up and saw we still did not have them and turned around without saying a word. I assume she went to find them. It was not busy at all. I was not impressed at all with the service. I hope our next visit will be better. Thank you Cissy May.

First-time visit. In comparison to other steakhouses, I found this one to be average. I could have asked for the same cut of steak at the Outback and received what I was served. For being medium rare, the steak was not tender and underseasoned. My spouse was fine with her fish. The lobster mac & cheese, mushrooms with crab meat, and service was great. For me, given what is available in the region around the same price range, I can't say that I will make it a point to return.

The service was great, So I just ate my meal and figured that I'd write a review later.
I was pretty disappointed with my steak.
It was under seasoned( by a long shot) and pretty tough.
The rest of the meal was good, it's just that when you have steak in the name of your restaurant it should be the star. My wife felt the a same way about hers.
They had a Surf and Turf ( Valentines Day Special) that is what we got, Sounded good.
The steak felt like it was a cheap cut for the special... Not the Quality that I had expected from Ruth's..

I made the reservations at least six weeks earlier. My wife and I always prefer a booth as it is more comfortable for her to hear me if we sit next to each other. In spite of doing so we were given a 2 person folding table near a wall and no other options. There were at least two booths that were empty around us. This made a less special evening. I will probably go back but this was not our best experience at this restaurant.

This was one of the best meals my husband and I have ever had. We eat out quite often, but nothing compared to this meal. The server was amazing and very knowledgeable. The seafood tower was absolutely amazing and then we shared the steak & two lobster meal. Every bite was delicious. Will definitely be back and will tell everyone I know they must go!!

This blew Burn's out of the water! Hands down the BEST steak I've ever eaten and not remotely the most expensive. Their $50 filet easily beats $80-$120 steaks I've had elsewhere. The atmosphere was great with live piano, complimentary valet, and a modern / retro styling that felt very upscale without being antiquated. My only complaint would be that some of the seating is directly underneath the A/C and can be cold. I highly recommend this place and will be going back very soon!

Ruth’s Chris is our go to place for special occasions, the food and the service by our waiter John was amazing. My only dissapointment was that the tables near the window where we were seated were so close together I had trouble sitting down without bumping into the person sitting behind me; as a disabled person that made me very uncomfortable. I understand that the resturaunt was expecting a busy valentines weekend, but I would think that a classy resturaunt like Ruth’s Chris wouldn’t sacrifice customers comfort to allow for more customer seating.

Experience was well below what we expected. Steaks arrived within minutes of salads being delivered. Steaks were taken away and returned later, but were then overcooked and dry. We often dine at a competing high end steakhouse and gave Ruth's Chris a try at the request of a friend.... Very disappointing!!

First time experience with this restaurant and it was great. David, our server, was fantastic. We had an extra special reason for going there tonight and he made the night perfect by going out if his way to make it special. The food was seriously fantabulous. I recommend this place to everyone.

Took my son there for his birthday. We enjoyed the lump crabcakes and BBQ shrimp appetizers. The steaks were fantastic and tender. Atmosphere is always nice! The bar area was 'happening'...had I not been with my kids, I would have stayed there longer.

Fantastic service! Quality experience with really delicious food. Service was some of the best my wife and I have ever received. Genuine care for our comfort and experience. We can't wait to return again for another celebration in the near future. Our server John was simply the best and his assistant Julian was top notch. Attentive but not overbearing and really demonstrated 5 star class service. Food was PERFECTLY cooked seasoned and presented. We're still talking about it!

My wife and I are regular diners at Ruth Chris, typically once a month. The food and the service and ambiance are the best in Tampa in our view, it has the big city feel. One minor quibble is that the coffee is really poor and not up to the restaurant’s sublime standard in everything else, invest in a proper coffee maker please.
