Some disappointments this visit. Reservations for 7 but table set for 6.
John our waiter would disappear for too long of time. Steaks not quite as tender and flavorful as they usually are. We had to ask for bread and then it was brought to table not sliced.

The seafood platter was a good appetizer. The bone-in filet was way undercooked and full of fat and gristle. Been coming for years, last 2 times a bust. Not coming back.

We ordered 3 meals - two steaks that came out completely under-done and had to be re-heated, lobster came out under-done and had to be taken away and re-heated as well. Our party ended up eating dinner at different times and the management never acknowledged these issues or made any attempt to compensate. Surprising to see such a poor performance given the business was clearly under-booked (the only exception being a “financial planning” seminar that was happening in one of the private rooms ) - half the restaurant’s tables were empty.

We’ve gone to this restaurant for nearly 10 years because of the quality of the steaks and the front line servers (Julio and Tony particularly) - but the management team seems more interested in making money than truly ensuring a quality experience for its diners. Given the other choices (eddie v’s, del frisco’s, ocean prime - which has amazing management by the way, and several others) - I believe this Ruth’s Chris location has become a relic of the past - truly a shame. I believe this is a case of general management having transitioned to a feeling of entitlement - we’ve had many recent experiences like this and sadly, will no longer be customers of what, for many years, has been among our favorite restaurants.

Good lesson to be learned - never take your customers for granted. Clearly, this particularly RC’s location has done just that.

Ruth’s is always our go-to for steak. Hands down it’s the best steak house in the area and is always consistently good. We also love the roasted corn and almost every salad on the menu. Creme brûlée for dessert is a must.

We often go to Ruth's Chris and have done so for 4-5 years. Our last two visits were outstanding--some of the best steaks ever (we got the filet). As always , the service is very good with the servers being very knowledgeable and conversational. A delightful evening. While you pay a lot, you get a lot and it is an excellent place to go for that special occasion.

Food was good but not great. Very expensive. Other high end steakhouse offer more value for the money. Service was good but not great. May return again but many other choices in the Tampa area.

Absolutely outstanding! One in our party ordered a well done filet (I know, I don't understand it either..) and it was cooked to perfection. Seriously, a well done filet that you can cut with a fork! I cannot recommend the bone in NY Strip enough, also cooked to med-rare perfection. I am in love with this place and will go out of my way to eat there. Johnathan was our server and was very professional, informative and helpful. He went the extra mile, for sure.

We had the best time ever! It was our first time there. My son is leaving for the Navy and I wanted to do something extra special. The steaks were melt in your mouth. The whole family had a great time. The lady who seated us was so warm and friendly. Our waiter was perfect and made us feel welcomed.

First of all I was disappointed that They didn’t serve the black cherry martini that is the signature drink in all the other Ruth’s Chris restaurants
We had the 3 course special and both ordered the rib eye I didn’t feel that the meal was up to par
Should have eaten at a Lonestar

We love dining here. But two times in a row we have been disappointed. You would think that a steak restaurant could cook the steak to order the FIRST time. When it has to be sent back it ruins the experience plus the side items are getting cold and everyone is eating. Never enough time to do it right but plenty of time to do it over.
We will return. It’s a great place. But just really emphasize to the waiter to cook it right the first time.

Love going to Ruth Chris, but this experience was not as welcoming by any means. Had to change tables 4 times. The first 2 tables we were seated at the wrong tables. The 3rd table we were placed at was not stable. So finally we were placed at a far back table were waiters kept bumping my chair. Service was not up to par as in the past. Food was wonderful as always!

There were 4 of us and we each ordered a steak. One steak we had to send back as it was not cooked properly. It was a birthday dinner and it took forever to get another steak. By the time it came the rest of us were all done. They should have comped that dinner or but a after dinner drink. SOMETHING. nothing was done.
