I had an evening flight into Tampa so this place was real close to the airport. My wife and I had a wonderful app (crab cakes) and the steak filet was awesome. Food was on point, service was even better are waitress was awesome. Can't wait to revisit!

Cons: The steak was a tough piece of meat. Cooked correctly (color-wise; I ordered medium) but cutting through it was hard. I ordered mine with just salt & pepper but it came soaked in butter ( which turned out to be a good thing because it gave the tough meat some flavor). The sea bass my husband ordered had a strange “spongy” consistency, and my birthday cheesecake tasted like soap 😞

Pros: The side of asparagus was good, the wine was nice, the ambiance and the service were fantastic. Noise level was down and social distancing is strictly adhered to. Every other table was left empty... it felt very intimate which I like.

The food is just “lacking” in my opinion, and I would not return for that reason, unfortunately. For the price, the food should be memorable and it was... but in the wrong way. :(

Not up to par especially considering the price. Steak was very grislly. At $50 it should be perfect. Waiter did not come back to table for quite some time after delivering the steak. So could not send it back promptly. Disappointing and overpriced.

The first bone-in rib-eye was cooked medium, and i ordered it medium rare. While it was sent back, I ate my au gratin potatoes. When the second steak came, they gave me mother order of potatoes au gratin. The potatoes were luke warm at best, and the steak had a lot of gristle for something that was supposed to be prime beef. My first average to below average experience at a Ruths Chris. We paid almost $500 with tip and a nice bottle of wine, and expected better quality food. Everything ales was great, but we went for the food, and I was disappointed, to say the ;east.

The ambiance was fantastic, very quiet and nice lighting. We had a few issues with our dining experience that left a sour taste in our mouths. We were seated (2 adults and 1 child) prior to a few other larger tables. It took roughly 45 minutes to receive our 2 steaks, 2 potatoes, and children’s tenders meal... however the tables sat after us were served their apps, steaks, and desserts before we received our food.. mind you it wasn’t very busy at all. Upon our food arriving, I had asked our server for steak sauce which never made its way to us. Our daughter then brings it to our attention that she had asked for mashed potatoes and had received French fries that were extremely hard, as well as her tenders. I had asked our server about the mix up, and he stated they had run out of mashed, which would’ve been fine had he mentioned it and offered something else. He ended up being her some broccoli roughly 10 minutes later. I just felt that with the price we are paying, things would have been a little more organized..

So disappointed, in a restaurant that claims New Orleans as their origin, can’t make a sazerac! It was the worst drink I’ve ever had. Food wasn’t bad but that drink threw my whole meal off kilter and the fact I still paid $14 for that drink.

Amazing service! My husband and I dined for our 15th wedding anniversary. 16 years ago , he asked me to marry him at the Ruth’s Chris Nashville location..we live in Tampa now and thought it would be nice to celebrate here. I got the Oscar Filet...it was cooked to perfection! The crab cake was just so amazing! I had to take the bread pudding to go because I was stuffed...the bread pudding warmed up well the second day and practically melted in my mouth! The calamari we selected as an appetizer was a delightful surprise ..it was sweet and sour! I also loved the crab stuffed mushrooms. Our waiter was very attentive..the staff wore masks and we were seated at an appropriate distance from others. I totally enjoyed myself , as well as my

We requested a table closest to the restroom and were accommodated. Food was very good. I ordered salmon filet and it came on top of a bed of spinach. The spinach was delicious and easy to eat it just melted in your mouth. Husband ordered at TBONE steak and it was delicious. Made to his request of medium rare. Lobster bisque soup was a perfect creaminess with little bits of lobster in it. The only thing I did not like was the Caesar salad. I expected nice green romaine leaves.

Told our server that we wanted to make sure our meal was sequence properly and he guaranteed he would manage it. However, we were still eating a salad when our main course arrived, so I was very disappointed. My friend and I shared a large cowboy ribeye and ordered it rare because they serve it on a hot plate which cooks it more. They divided the portion and put it on another plate however mine was not hot enough to cook it more. For the price you pay I expect my meal to be perfect. The positive, is that social distancing is practiced and they only accept reservations.

I don't frequent too many chain restaurants, but i have an affinity for Ruth's Chris since going to the original on Broad Street (2nd location after fire) when I was 16. I really enjoy the Tampa location and the high-temp, broiled filet, au gratin potatoes and other favorites never disappoint. We went for my wife's birthday this trip and took our two younger kids. We had a great time. The service was excellent and the bread pudding was to die-for as well. I would also note that the restaurant had proper COVID prevention procedures in place to make you feel safe (I am not venturing out too many places).

One note - Please bring back the Lyonnaise Potatoes!!!!

Not the Ruth’s Chris we are used to. Menu cut way back. Cuts of meat disappointing. Restaurant practically empty - probably due to lame menu and poor quality.
