This review focuses on the Happy Hour in the bar. It is on the 'high tops' and they fill up quickly. We got the last four seats available at a table for 6 and happily shared it with two nice ladies. Food served at this time go from burgers to prime rib sandwiches to seafood delights all under $10 and... More

This is a wonderful restaurant for any special occasion. It is tastefully done & the staff is quite attentive. Cocktails are superb as are the steaks! The side portions are family style to share. Yes-the prices are high-but you certainly get what you pay for at this restaurant in quality, atmosphere & portions.

My wife and I went here for the first time last week. We dined in the formal restaurant (there is a small bistro type area around the bar) and found the ambience very comfortable and calming. Ideal for taking ones time over an excellent meal. Our waiter was very friendly, professional and superbly well informed. Everything about our meal was... More

My wife and I visted Siesta Key the week of Feb 1-8th. while there we were told about the great Happy Hour that Ruth Chris puts on everyday between 4:30 and 7:00 pm. We decided to give it a try last Friday February 7th (we skipped lunch knowing that we were going to eat dinner early). We arrived just after... More

I join the "terrible" and "poor" brigade without hesitation. I had been there twice before and was reluctant to get burned a third time but my out-of-town visitors almost insisted on it because of its reputation ... Little did they know and I should have done them a favor and resisted it !! Our reservation for four had not registered... More

Nice venue, warm and inviting... The filet I had was just average, overlooked, even though I had been very specific about the way I liked it... They offered to make it again, but then I would have been sitting there with three other people while they were eating... Nice wine selection, just wasn't overwhelmed, in fact, underwhelmed... Sigh!

For our Christmas dinner we selected Ruth's which is one of our favorites, although this was a first visit to this one. As always the service was excellent from the valet parking to the server. A dry martini with an olive arrived and tasted like chilled olive juice. The replacement was only slightly improved. My wife's steak was done exactly... More

Our first experience was in Pasadena, CA and it was terrific, however our last trip was to Sarasota, FL and from the moment we pulled in to valet parking and was greeted several times before entering the restaurant we were very impressed. The service was perfect and attentive, the food was excellent and delicious, cooked to perfection. We wanted for... More
