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.

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.

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.
