Arrived here on a Tuesday about 4. Emily greeted us at the bar and we started with a Manhattan and Raspberry Cosmo. For food we ordered a chopped salad, steak sandwich and ahi tuna. All were superb with an order of warm bread n butter....Decided to finish with Emily’s suggestion of Creme Brûlée. Our bill was $65. Emily’s service and conversation were top notch as was our food. We make it here once a year and will not miss this same time, next year.More

Not the usual Ruth’s Chris service nor food. Will consider Covid issues around the food preparation and lack of white tablecloth service.

It is always a pleasurable experience in every way. The food and service are what you would expect from a restaurant on this level. It is consistently very tasty, and they serve just the right amount without feeling like you didn't get enough or that...you are taking the food home because it was way too much Their service and attentiveness is always top-notch. Everything we have ordered there for dinner or lunch has always been delicious!More

We had an outstanding experience here for a delightful Sunday dinner. Our sever, Diego, couldn’t have been more informative and perfectly attentive. Not too much and not too little. Just happened to also be celebrating my birthday and our table was decorated, good wishes offered...by the greeters etc. and a lovely dessert oo my choosing. The Cesar salad was outstanding as we the hand cut fries and creamed spinach. My 8 oz filet was perfection as was my husband’s boneless ribeye. Cannot wait to return.More

I wanted to give 5 stars but just can’t...this dinner was a special birthday treat for our oldest who turned 17 yesterday. All of our steaks were definitely 5 stars...probably the best steak I’ve ever had...however the other dishes we had missed the mark...which I...thought was odd. My filet was cooked to perfection but the shrimp that topped the filet was very chewy and obviously overdone, the 4 of us shared the lobster Mac and cheese as a side dish and is was ok but nothing special and the lobster was overdone and chewy, which was the same for the lobster bisque and the crab cake that came with my youngest sons dinner. I just feel that a restaurant of this caliber should put out better food. The serves however was amazing and our waiter was very attentive, they also brought out a mini cheesecake with a candle for my oldest son’s birthday which was very sweet. I’m so overall we enjoyed our time at Ruth’s Chris but we’re disappointed in some of the dishes for the money that we spent.More

It's a very upscale restaurant, in a perfect location in Sundial St Pete, superbly designed, offering several seating options - indoors and on a very spacious patio outdoors, with some wonderful views of the area. The indoors dining area, actually several of them, are very...inviting, and a very pleasant ambiance of a white-cloth, top rated restaurant can't be beat. The main thing is that the food is excellent. And in the late afternoons they have a special Sizzle Swizzle Swirl Happy Hour from 4:30 pm till 6:30 pm, that is hard to resist, both in the quality of meals and in the pricing of ~ $10. Since there were about half a dozen of customers there for that special, it took some time to be seated by a friendly hostess, but eventually it was totally paid for by having a perfectly cooked and served meal. The Cilantro Marinara Chicken Breast with all the ingredients that made it even tastier - blue cheese, curry peach compote - was excellent, served with berry and arugula salad that was fresh and delicious. Since I am not a heavy eater, the size of the meal was perfect for me. Coffee was excellent too. Having enjoyed my first visit to Ruth's Chris Steak House, I'm looking forward to coming back. My visit was in February, now the restaurant is temporarily closed for the public, only serving take out meals, but I'm sure those are excellent too.More

We were on Central in St. Petersburg one Saturday night and decided to upscale our evening by going for a drink at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. We managed to snag a high-top with our friends and stayed for salads and appetizers. We’ve been to many,...many RCSH around the country. They are predictably good, where ever you are. We typically go for dinner, but our experience may create a new habit. Service is always good and the venue is upscale. Although a steak house, the menu is complete. The bartenders are well-trained and the wine list is better than adequate, albeit a step-down from certain other nationwide steakhouses. This location is on the second floor; the outdoor seating looks down on a courtyard. Not a bad place to people watch.More

Everyone knows Ruth Chris is an upscale steak house but did you know they have a killer happy hour 3 -6:30 week days?  For $9 you can a great selection  of items to fit any taste. Our favorite is a steak sandwich on a hero...roll cooked to order and including french fries!   Drinks are also happy houred. I asked for rare and got rare. It is a good steak house so they can cook steak. Better yet they do not confine you to the bar like so many happy hours. We ate outdoors on their beautiful patio with full waiter service.  Wonderful!More

We had a $50 gift certificate, so decided to check out the happy hour menu. What a value! Fabulous steak sandwich with fries, scrumptious seared ahi tuna (very spicy), delicious brussels sprouts (from the main dinner menu). Hubby enjoyed a draft beer. I usually choose...wine over mixed drinks but the lemon drop martini with coconut and ginger sounded too good. It was! All of this for roughly $53!! And I am not exaggerating when I say this was one of the best prepared meals we have had dining out in a long time. It was a beautiful day, so we decided to sit outside. The patio table and chairs are very comfortable. (Inside is beautiful.) Service was everything you expect at such a fine restaurant. We will be back.More

The sides are large enough to share and the filets were cooked to perfection. delicious seasoning. The...dessert was absolute;y delicious.More
