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!

I always love coming to Ruth's Chris for a delicious dinner. Anytime I go I make sure to request Tony D. As our server as he always takes excellent care of us. He is very knowledgable and attentive and will make your dining service very enjoyable. This is my favorite steak house in Tampa by far and I have tried almost all of our upscale steakhouses except for a few. I have yet to eat anything here that I don't love. I recently brought my mom here for her birthday dinner and she loved it! We ordered the Calamari & Crab Stack Appetizers and they weee delicious, we especially loved the Crab. We also had their seasonal Butternut Squash Bisque & Acorn Squash Salad which were both very flavorful. We also both got filets, mine I like Pittsburgh blackened and medium rare, so tasty! All of their sides are delicious and don't forget to try they desserts, the Creme Brulee & Seasonal Berries & Cream are my absolute favorites! They also do wine tasting dinners every so often which you can be notified about in advance by signing up for their email notifications. If you haven't been, check it out as soon as you can, you won't regret it!

It was Christmas and you would expect the place to be a zoo. Nope, not really, but they were busy. Due to a bug in Open Table's outlook calendar invites, we arrived an hour early, but they still sat us. Their Ahi Tuna appetizer is a good size and has a spicy sauce to go with it. Nicely prepared, but the pieces are a bit too big for chopsticks. The only down side to their busyness was that our drinks didn't show up until I was done with my appetizer. The rest of dinner pacing and drink refills were fine. Their lobster tails with a filet was nicely prepared and the 2+ lb lobster was taken out of the shell for us -- a nice touch. I am sure we'll be back next Christmas if not before.

Absolutely phenomenal steaks cooked to perfection and the blue cheese wedge was out of this world. The service was top notch as well, our waiter Ramsey was on top of everything and a really genuine person. It is a little on the pricy side but the great food and atmosphere was well worth it. We had a great time and will definitely be back.

Never had a bad steak here but the cocktails were not what I ordered and $17.25 for a dirty martini seems a little excessive .....
Very noisy during the holiday season with many large groups ........

Hostess was very friendly. Went above and beyond. Went for Thanksgiving dinner. We go every year. Service was good. But food was ice cold and they ran out of some of the items. They tried to remedy the situation, but for $300 for a party of 4, there shouldn’t be any mistakes, even when they’re not used to handling the changes in menu on the holiday. Happens almost every year. But we go back so can’t be that bad.

Steak was excellent as usual. Little disappointed in the Turkey dinner. Although they did give you a doggie bag with some turkey/stuffing/cranberry relish to take home. I just didn't care for the turkey gravy, white not brown, and the stuffing was large pieces of cut up bread but was not all that cohesive to eat! So I learned my lesson and will get steak like I normally do.

The food wasn’t great for the price point. Spent $200 (including tip) on 2 people and only had 1 alcoholic beverage each and no dessert. Also, the sides weren’t that hot so when you moved them to your plate the got cold quick. Several better options in the Tampa Bay Area for steak and seafood.
