Nice Upscale Spot

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

While celebrating my mom's eightieth birthday we decided to treat her to a birthday celebration at Ruth Chris Steak house in Sarasota. The table was decorated when we arrived and the staff had a birthday card which they all signed for her as well. The menu was appealing and as they are famous for, the filets were cooked to perfection.... More

When it comes to dining and you want a sure fire hit this is it. The steak is superb which I usually don't stray from. The calamari appetizer is another favorite. Ruth Chris is consistently one of the best Steak Houses for fine food. The wait staff is remarkable and honestly I can't say enough about their quality. One just... More

Each Valentine's Day we have dinner at Ruth's with same friends. Yes, we expected it to be very busy but waiting over 40 minutes for our table with a 7 PM reservation started a less than perfect dining experience. The requested booth was not honored but we were shown to a corner table very close to the front door so... More

We wanted a 700 dinner time but settled for 645 and wish we had made it 630 as we arrived early, but no worries they seated us right away. I took my elderly mother since she had never been there, and we had a 50 dollar gift card. This is not your average STEAK house. Be prepared the prices are... More

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Sarasota, Florida. We have dined at several different Ruth's Chris Steakhouse restaurants (Honolulu, Hawaii, Atlanta, GA, New Jersey and NYC). The food has been excellent at each of these locations. The food at the Sarasota location was excellent as well but the service was truly exceptional.... More

My husband and I have made it a "tradition" to have my birthday dinner at this location, since becoming "snowbirds" four years ago. But this year our "table for two" turned into a "table for 11" when nine of our wonderful family members made a surprise visit! The staff, known for their fine service, went the extra mile, working with... More
