Best Filet Mignon Ever

The steak is worth the price. It practically melts in your mouth. The butter is phenomenal! The potatoes au gratin were fantastic as well. the staff is friendly and very attentive. This place is absolute perfection.

We were so please to get into town and see a Ruth's Chris near our hotel and had to go there for dinner our first night in Tampa. We've eaten at other Ruth's Chris restaurants and never been disappointed. This night was no exception. Everyone we encountered from the hostesses and the manager at the front desk to wait staff...

Ruth's Chris offers some of the best steaks around. Coupled with impeccable, attentive service, the combination of food and ambiance makes any meal a special occasion. It is very pricey ($46 for a NY strip steak a la carte??), but at least the rich flavor helps make it seem worth it.

Very upscale spacious 5 star Steak House - Plenty of room for large groups. This establishment best services adults due to the upscale dining menu. Enjoy the best aged Angus beef and an ala carte menu that will satisfy even the pickiest appetite. Kudos to Kurt from the "Big Texas group of girls and guys"!!! The lemon drops and apple... More

The wait staff was very attentive and it didn't matter if they were responsible for your table or not. The food was delicious and there was plenty to eat. Everyone took home leftovers. My wife loved the calamari. We purchsed the meal special that included soup, main dish and desert. Everthing was very good.

We went here for a special occasion and new we were going to drop a good amount of money. We had been to another pricey steakhouse in 2010, similar occasion. Ruth Chris BLEW that steakhouse out of the water. The calamari recommended by our waiter Ben was awesome, as was the lobster mac and cheese. All of our steaks were... More

You know it wasn't worth 70s per plate... Good food but I'm not really impressed. If you are looking to upscale your steak dinner and want to triple the bill as compared to a Long Horn type restaurant...its your money. X

I probably would give a 4.5 if that was possible but I'll stick to the 5 for now. The meal: Incredible. We were celebrating a birthday so we started with a bottle of bubbles in the bar. Sat with Chris, a really top notch bartender. Professional yet fun and engaging, one of the best I've encountered at a high end... More

We had the pleasure of spending Superbowl Sunday at the bar at Ruth Chris which turned out to be a lovely experience. We were treated to well spoken waiters about the wine list; offered opinions about the sandwiches which turned out to be accurate, and had a great time watching the game with other football loving diners and the wait...

I don't have a Ruth's Chris anywhere near my hometown but after eating at one in the past, I planned my trip to Tampa around finding a hotel that was nearby to this restaurant. I do not regret it in the least. We had an amazing meal that was so delicious, the atmosphere was perfect, and I have never had... More
