Our first night in Fort Lauderdale was blighted somewhat by our decision to eat at this restaurant on Sat 25 July. It felt a little bit uncomfortable as we arrived without the usual relaxed charm of the American offering. It was efficient though as we didn't have a prior booking. The food was good, steaks excellent. In our desire to... More

Being a gaucha, the homeland of 'Brazilian churrasco', I like to compare steak experiences. Though American BBQ is not the same as our "fogo de chão" and "espetos", the steaks, Chicago style, are much more closer to what we have in the South of Brazil. This place, in particular, is very religious about how to prepare the meat (medium rare,... More

A good steak can be had here. There's a fine bread service as well as some tasty side dishes. Service is always exemplary.

We had a wonderful dinner and drinks at this restaurant. We were there for a function, but the bar is wonderful and the staff is very professional. They have free valet parking, so if you want to park your car yourself you will have to find a place nearby. Otherwise, the place is absolutely perfect. One negative - there is... More

We stumbled upon this place on our first night in Fort Lauderdale and had great dinner. Restaurant was packed when we arrived but we were able to get a table after some wait. It had a relaxed smart-casual atmosphere and food was all yummy. Servers were very friendly and efficient. While we waited for our table we enjoyed nice drinks... More

Food was great. Way too pricey for what you get. But for special occasions it would be fine. Wait staff was excellent. We were there for our anniversary.

We went to Ruth Chris to celebrate a 40th with friends. Our waiter was Vlad, who patiently explained the specials twice, and made sure we had a great time. I'm not a steak eater, but everyone raved about their steaks. I had the shrimp over mashed potatoes. The sides are large enough to share and delicious (esp the spinach gratin).... More

We have eaten here over the past years but not for a while so gave it a try. It was nowhere near as good as previouse visits. The waitress was not up to par, she clanked the water glasses when pouring the water, she had trouble opening the wine and there was cork in my glass and proceeded to bang... More
