Not impressed. The food was not bad but they ran out of certain items because they said they had a busy week. That is a lame excuse for a top restaurant charging these prices. I also note that our server was formal at best. He did not even ask if I wanted dessert and just brought a check. There was no offer to refill coffee.

Celebrating a late Valentine’s Day. The food was perfect as always as well as all the staff. Ricardo is our favorite server and has been for years.

First time here with my husband for our anniversary. The food is good but way overpriced. Ricardo our waiter was excellent and very accommodating. We were also put in a back room and I would have preferred being in the main restaurant where there is ambience. Especially paying $250.00 for a meal.

You can count on the filet and au gratin potatoes to wow you. Had the white chocolate bread pudding and it was incredible. Enough for 2-4 people but oh so good.

The food was amazing but our server was awful. My boyfriend had to go to the bar to have my champagne refilled everytime. Our server ignored us almost our entire meal.

This was the most disappointing meal out I've had in a long time. Apparently Ruth rents the restaurant out to any local business shiester who wants to bilk the elderly out of their hard earned life savings during the week. We sat right next to one of the these horrible schemers and got no service. Thanks Ruth, i know you're dead but I'm sure you still find a way to keep up with reviews.

Food and beverages were all top notch, as was the service. Was disappointed that there are not more gluten free options for appetizers and sides. As the usual for this chain, it is way overpriced.

Food was delicious - we had petite filets, roasted mushrooms and steamed broccoli. Service was attentive and not annoying. We had an early reservation (5p) and were seated in the back dining room, which was a little brightly lit for a steakhouse, in my opinion. I had indicated in the reservation that it was my husbands birthday - after we paid the check, our server brought him a fabulous birthday dessert, on the house. All in all, a great evening!

Continue to be disappointed in RC Steak. Tampa service was terrible, 3 waiters lost track of our order and my client was not served with the table. Manager/maitre'd stepped in a secured order. Not convinced they truly differentiate between cuts of meat. Will not repeat.

Food, service, atmosphere were all excellent. Service was exceptional. Steaks, as you might imagine, were very high quality and presentation was excellent. Great martini and good wine selection. Hard to beat- very good steak house.

My husband and I have eaten here on many occasions, and we have always found the wait staff to be top notch. Unfortunately, this time I was more than disappointed. Drinks took forever, water took forever, ordering took forever, you get my point. Maybe they were understaffed, but I've never before been disappointed. Hopefully better luck next time. With that said the food, again, was simply amazing.

My wife and I had a great evening celebrating our Anniversary with our adult sons. I had requested a certain table and lo and behold that table was set aside for us with heart shaped
“Anniversary“ glitter down the center of the table. The steaks were wonderfully prepared and drinks were plentiful. Very professional staff; they addressed us by name, and wished us “Happy Anniversary “ several times. We look forward to returning!
