I've eaten here twice, and the steak is simply the best. Bern's has the reputation and is a unique experience, but when it comes to the flavor of steak, Ruth's Chris is tops. Service is impeccable. Valet parking is free. The menu is classic. It is pricey but still cheaper than Bern's. Eat at both and you'll understand -- Bern's... More

Just walking into Ruth's and catching the fragrance of butter on hot steak is incomparable... and then dining on steak and the delicious sides... ahhhh. Wherever I go in the US, I always look forward to dinner at Ruth's and am never disappointed with the quality of the food or the service.

Had a good experience here. Celebrated 1rst year anniversary here. Staff was friendly, steaks was delicious, and sides was huge. Worth the money, and enjoyed the fine dining experience.

We went to Ruth's Chris to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and greatly enjoyed our meal, including the delicious signature steaks! However, the evening was a bit dampened by the unfriendly attitudes and surly faces of the valet parking staff.

On a business trip to Tampa, I stayed right behind Ruth Chris at the Hyatt Place Hotel and walked over for a cocktail. The pleasant surprise at the bar was some good sushi. I had the Sashimi plate which was excellent. Great service and pleasant bartenders.

Reservations in advance noting 25th wedding anniversary and no one mentioned a thing. We get seated next to a large table of 10 drunken loud foreigners. Food was rushed and not a relaxing moment at all. Dined here numerous times before and will come back again. Just not that special tonight.

As most Ruth Chris steak houses I've been too, this one had wonderful food! The water boy and food runner were excellent and friendly. Our waiter was arrogant and unfriendly. Should not be working in food service.

Dined here with a friend on a business trip. Very nice, large comfortable bar area. As typical with most Ruth Chris, the steaks and service are excellent. Convenient to airport hotels, an excellent choice for dinner.

As always, Flavorful items with EXCELLENT service to match. Ruth's Christ has been very consistent for us. We eat there fairly often and we have never had a problem. They always go out of their way to make us feel comfortable and happy. I read a not so good review posted by a long time lover of Ruth's Christ and... More

On my vacation went for an early dinner and the Hostess and another young man asked " can I help you"? As if we went in by mistake. This while the Hostess looked at my mother's shoes and muttered something to the male greeter. I thought more appropriate would have been a "good afternoon", and asked if we had reservations...
