Ruth's Chris never fails to disappoint on the steak front - but this restaurant also does Sushi and top class Sushi it is - Both steak and Sushi were excellent - Service very good and attentive - waiter even took the Asparagus off the bill as it had not arrived with the steak. The greeting at front of house is... More

When Flemings opened in Tampa, it was a little more casual and we started going there. No longer. Flemings really went downhill on the quality of their meats and went back to tried and true, Ruth Chris. The chocolate souffle is off the menu, but it you make reservations in advance, the bakery chef will make it for you.

One should expect the finest in service, food, and atmosphere when dining at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. You'll pay a pretty penny for your culinary experience, and you deserve to get what you pay for. Sadly, Ruth's Chris did not live up to my high expectations. Here's why: My wife and I had both ordered filet mignon for our main course.... More

Tampa has two restaurants which have better food at lower prices, Ivarone's and Bern's. Both are locally owned and operated.

We always visit this restaurant when we are in Tampa as the ambiance and food are consistently excellent. Steaks are the specialty but there is also a good choice of seafood and other meats. Staff are magnificent with many of them have worked here for many years. It isn't cheap but it is most definitely worth the money.There is a... More

RC-Tampa. Always seem to be in a hurry to get you moving through there. Felt rushed. A frequent patron but thinking about trying somewhere else. Do like the many food options and drinks are expensive but heavy pours. Manager and chef kissed butt to the VIP next to us, but barely said boo to us or other patrons. Bad form.... More

Always excellent food and service. Chef George came to visit with us at our table. He told us sometime ago to make sure when we make reservations that they let him know when we will be there. Excellent man and always warm and wonderful. He will go overboard to make sure we have the best experience.

There's a relatively cheap happy hour at Ruth Chris on week nights. You can get a burger and fries for $8 and the mixed drinks are similarly priced. The food was excellent and the drinks were strong and delicious. The service was fine.

I have been listening to Rush rave about Ruths Chris Steakhouse for years and I finally went and was really not that impressed with the food. The service was excellent but I expected a lot more from the steak. Don't get me wrong it was a very good steak but way way over priced.
