    A steak this good from a chain? Crazy. I've been to this place once, so I'm not a regular -- though I would be if I could afford it. Yes it's expensive but worth every penny.

    I've dined in almost all of Tampas steakhouse's and Ruth's Chris is the best. The service is impeccable, down to the cloth napkin that is given to coincidw with the color of your pants/dress. Quality of steak is unmatched. Go with a Ny Strip Pittsburgh style and you will leave happy. Best place in town to celebrate an occasion or conduct business

    This was my first time at Ruth Chris, I will come back for sure. The steak was very good. I ordered mine med well it came out med, but the quality of the meat made up for it not being exactley wright.. Robert was our waiter and he did a top notch job always on time, and always keeping our drinks full.. The host greated us and we were off to our table very promt in getting us to our table.. I have ate at many resturants in Tampa and I think Burns is the best over all, But Ruths is a very close second.. I will definetly recommend..

    My friend and I went to Ruth's Chris in March and this was the first fancy steakhouse that I had ever been to. It was such an amazing experience. The service was great, the food was great and so was the atmosphere. It was expensive but well worth saving up to go to treat yourself! We got the porterhouse for 2 and it was hands down the best steak that I have EVER had (sorry DAD!) I would love to go again so I guess its back to saving!!!

    There are so many steak restaurants in Tampa I would recommend over Ruth's Chris....but Ruth's Chris is well known in the US and I think that is where most of the hype comes from. Interesting story behind the place itself, but other than that I would say the food is just "good." (I am from Kansas City afterall, I know a great steak when I taste one, and this is not "great") I have a problem with the 500 degree sizzling plates because they do continue to "cook" the steak on it's way from the kitchen...so a medium-rare steak becomes closer to medium, a big no-no in my book. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is great, however. If you go to eat there, plan on spending quite a bit on the ala carte menu.

    Ruths Chris has a formal atmosphere, very friendly employees, and excellent food. It is a wonderful place for a romantic dinner or a business meeting. A word of warning- as good as the food is it is over priced, so be prepared to spend if you go here.

    We have been several times and found Ruth's too loud. Very hard to enjoy a meal with others. As for the food, not that great for the money. The steak is over rated for the price. Had no flavor for whats should be a great steak. The service is not great. We just came back from San Francisco and could not believe the difference in service out there to the service in Tampa bay area. We have had excellent service other places and expected the same at Ruth's. May consider going back if they change.

    Read the review from the birthday girl and all I can say is, Hun next time you and your boyfriend should go back to Denny's where you are used to. This is the finest Steak House in Florida, bar none. Maybe there is ever flowing Southern Comfort in Dade City, but even the best run out of things, oh except maybe ABC, seem to know a lot about that. Maybe they disappointed you when the wine came & you couldn't screw off the top! Look you stay at the Flying J and let true beef lovers have your share. Keep up the great work. I only have two steak houses Ruth Chris & Bern's no others even come close. 5 stars

    I heard some good things about Ruth Chris and yesterday was my birthday so I went with my boyfriend and we were both expecting great things. We were both sorely disappointed.
    The steak is so not worth the money, perhaps these folks who rant about the steak here, never really had a good cut of meat. The au gratin potatoes were bland and the potatoes themselves tasted "old".
    The server was snooty, but it IS a snooty restaurant. His mixed drink wasn't THAT great and bar had somehow run out of Southern Comfort so something was substituted. Please tell me how does a bar that boast itself on being some grand thing run out of Southern Comfort... Is there an ABC nearby, run over and get a bottle!
    As an insulin dependent diabetic, this place is SO NOT WORTH the calories!!!!! I have not been this disappointed in a meal in a very long time.

    I have been here with my family and another time with my boyfriend. It is now my boyfriend's favorite restaurant and one of mines as well!!!! The steak is delicious and the rest of the food is top line as well!! I definitely recommend to anyone - you won't be disappointed. The New York Strip, Ribeye, and Filet Mignon are my favorites! One word of advice - you need to make reservations.

    I was disappointed the first time I went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Atlanta but gave it another try back in Tampa. I was disappointed with the steak again. I found it rather dry and flavorless (I ordered it medium).

    heard all the raves about ruth chriss, excited to try it, took my friend for her birthday. The filet was tough, ordered it medium rare, and I personally have had better from buying my own filet from walmart, much more tender from walmart as well. The waiter brought over someone who offered to recook a new steak. I did not want to wait considering my friend also was eating hers. So they offered to pay for the dessert, which on the receipt we were charged anyway. Found out later that my friend was very dissapointed herself. We both said never again, and definitely would not recommend.

    Went here while in Tampa missing New Orleans. Wanted a little bit of home and we weren't disappointed. The staff was as friendly and informative as they were on Broad St....no surprise as a few of them were fellow evacuees, including the Chef who overheard us talking about Algiers (West Bank) and invited us to the Metairie location. My partner and I both ordered the Petite Filet and agreed it was the best steak we had ever eaten. Seems to be a popular date spot. I love Bern's for the entire experience: Piano Bar, Prescient Service, Dessert Room, etc., but I would definetely revisit Ruth's if I couldn't be in New Orleans.

    The visit to Ruth's was quite pleasurable. I did find the noise level to be a little high, but the awesome food and service made up for that. I will definately go there again and I will entertain clients and friends there as well. They are a class act.

    I took my mother to Ruth Chris for her birthday. The restaurant was very elegantly decorated. The bar was of dark, highly lacquered wood and the dining tables all had perfectly creased table cloths. I found the service to be simply mediocore. The wait staff were crisply dressed and there were two of them at times, however, the meal didn't arrive in a very timely manner. The food was as tasty as any other steak house I've been to and that includes, unfotunately, Ponderosa. The portions? I had the filet mignon and it came about size of a large button mushroom and the lobster was just as disappointing. The last observation is truly a concern since it's a restaurant and food is what they serve. Instead of having multiple waiters they may want to pay more attention to the quality, as well as quantity, of what is being served.

    While the atmosphere of the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Sarasota, Florida is wonderful, I believe the food to be overrated. The steaks are good, but other steakhouses are serving steaks that are just as good, if not better. The mashed potato has a sandy texture, like they were instant. Although, we're sure they're not instant, you'd be better off with another selection. We've tried different desserts and have to say the bread pudding with the bourbon sauce is dry, we believe this is due to microwaving too long. To say that Ruth Chris is altogether bad is wrong, there are some good dishes, although rather expensive. We would probably select another restaurant for a special occasion dinner.

    A little pricey - but you get what you pay for. The food, the service and the ambience is impecible. We first dined with Ruth's Christ in San Diego and it was I have to say the best meal we ever had - the food, the service - everything was wonderful. Definitely worthe the visit. Kids are definitely welcome at Ruth's Christ, but I feel the atmosphere is more "subdued" and is better suited for adults.

    Ruth's Chris is our favorite steakhouse in Tampa. Bern's is wonderful, but we prefer it only for special occasions. We have been enjoying Ruth's Chris' prime steaks for years, even before they came to Tampa. We especially enjoy the porterhouse for two, and the filet. Sizzling in butter is delicious, but if you like it rare like me, ask for an extra cool plate on the side. The BEST onion soup, stuffed mushrooms, chopped salad is great, delicious creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes. Creme brulee and bread pudding are great for dessert, but avoid the cheesecake. Rodney Strong Cab is a great bet. Good service, upscale decor.

    I love eating at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse!! Not only is the atmosphere relaxing and romantic...the staff is always very efficient...the food is always superb and the steaks are the best anywhere! I love how they cook the steaks on the plate with butter...and when they bring it out to you it's still cooking on your plate....so every bite is hot and delicous! Ever since I have taken a bite of their filet mignon......I will not eat it anywhere else! The portions are wonderful too..enough for two even three people!
