Valentine's Day surprise

My BF took me here for Valentines Day & I was completely surprised!!! I've never been but had heard great things about it. Yes it's pricey but 110% worth it. I had a salad, steak, mashed potatoes & a glass of wine that was easily the best meal I've ever had. The service & food were phenomenal... read more

We went to have a birthday celebration for my wife. Service was terrible slow. Server very explained that she did put our meal in a timely manner, but our meal was pushed back due to larger party. "The kitchen is really backed up" was her repose when she told us "your food will be out shortly" for the third time.... More

Drive over to Ruth's Chris Steak House from 4:30 - 7 to experience absolutely delicious food at the bar at unbelievable prices. I had a steak sandwich, which was beef tenderloin. It was fabulous with a béarnaise sauce and a mere $8. The zucchini frites were to die for and the steak salad had steak kabobs, mushrooms on a skewer,... More

Always a treat to dine at Ruth Chris. The filet was done perfectly and the chicken cordon bleu was magnificent. The creamed spinach was delicious as were the mashed potatoes. The raspberry sorbet topped on this wonderful meal.

We've dined at Ruth's Chris many times, at this location three times. This last visit was disappointing. The salad was missing key ingredients and the steak was not done as ordered. I think that next time we willl try someplace else.

I am not a regular to Ruth's Chris. The old saying, "You get what you pay for" is perfect for this restaurant. Both the meal and the service were excellent.

Valet Parking. Excellent service. Great tasting food and drinks. Special occasion favorite. Not cheap, but so as life overall!

We went for our 25th anniversary. It is a very busy restaurant so be sure to make reservations. A receptionist greeted us when we arrive. She handed over to the person seating us an envelope with rose petals and an anniversary card that were arranged when we were seated… a bit tacky, but thoughtful nonetheless. (I believe they would get... More

Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, it’s fattening. And Yes, you can make a steak at home to suit yourself …..BUT, dining at Ruth’s Chris in Sarasota is not just a steak. It’s a dining experience. You are greeted cheerfully upon arrival; you are addressed by name throughout the evening. The menu is varied. There is lot more than steak! Sharing is... More

The steaks are prime, the service excellent. However, the preparation and selection of fresh, quality ingredients left us terribly disappointed. We started with a tomato salad that might have been exceptional given the blue cheese crumble topping, but the tomatoes were hard, unripened and barely edible and the dish was lacking dressing of any sort. The next course, the filet... More
