We come to this area for weekend getaways. Last October the steaks weren't the best, I don't know what they did, this visit was amazing. Service was great, and the food was crazy good. The staff and the Chef checked on our happiness as we enjoyed a great place. It really made our getaway a nice time.

For our 59th wedding anniversary, I took my wife to Ruth's Crist Steak House in Sarasota. From the welcome we received at the entrance, to the congratulatory card and rose petals at our table, to the kind and gracious waiter, and yes, the delicious steaks, we could not have been more pleased and satisfied. We highly recommend it.

We went here for my wife's birthday celebration a couple of weeks ago, it has always been her favorite place to celebrate this occasion. We have eaten here many times in the past for various special occasions and the food and service has always made it worth the drive which for us is about an hour one way. The last... More

Enjoyed a bithday dinner here, although the restaurant was quiet (mid week), our server Brian was exceptional. We all enjoyed the set meal choice and my ribeye steak was very good, nice wines and delicious cocktails, and well priced.

Met with some friends and impressed with the staff and atmosphere. Our first time here at this restaurant in FL. Used to frequent the restaurant in TN and very good. Our filets were very tender, cooked just right, but no flavor. My husband even stated, "honey your steaks taste better than this". My side item was the roasted brussell sprouts.... More

I get to Ruth's Chris as much as possible! (Which is not often enough). I like the 16 oz. New York strip. The steaks here are so flavorful and always perfectly cooked. When the steak comes out sizzling and spitting butter at you I get really excited. For the a la carte items we usually get the Au Gratin Potatoes... More

I've loved the white table cloth formal dining of Ruth Chris as a special occasion place my whole adult life. But I think I've grown out of it, it just wasn't that special any more. We had a good waiter, but service was not that personal experience I remember. We had the 3 course meal specials, mine was 45 and... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Ruth Chris. We split the 16 oz. NY strip steak; we shared the sweet potato casserole and fire-roasted corn dish; and, we had an excellent bottle of wine. Dessert was on RC in honor of our anniversary. Both food and service were excellent. I think RC is the best steakhouse in Sarasota.

We saw the Savor Sarasota ad where several Restaurants offer a 3-course meal for $29.00. One of the restaurants we choose was Ruth Chris. Glad we did. We would not normally be able to eat at such an exquisite restaurant on our budget unless it was a really special time. There were 4 of us. The menu is limited but... More
