I did make a reservation before hand in order to be sure I ate at the time I needed to. However, after the pesky reservation, the rest of the experience was wonderful. I ordered a medium well steak and it was cooked to perfection. Not many places can cook to those detailed standards, but this place does. Service was attentive... More

As I made reservations for 6 people, I was politely asked if this reservation was for a special occasion and mentioned it was for my father's 80th birthday to which the reservations lady simply remarked, "oh how nice". To my surprise, we arrived to a nicely decorated table with thoughtful birthday items. My parents had been to this particular Ruth's... More

Once again they have served the best steak I have eaten in my life. The staff was extremely friendly and very professional. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to splurge.

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.
