We've been going here for Valentine's Day just about every year for about 10 years now. The filet is still delicious although it is still VERY over priced. Our first disappointment was that they have discontinued the onion rings as a side dish. Too bad since they used to be great. But worse - they no longer have the banana... More

Although I'm familiar with other Ruth's Chris Steakhouses---hadn't tried the Sarasota edition. Was hoping for a special night for my wife and I. " Complimentary" valet parking was a nice touch; Craig, our server was very attentive. My Ribeye was excellent, but my wife's filet was very "undercooked." so we had to send it back. Which for a "steakhouse" (especially... More

Ordered a steak, which seemed fairly pricey, only to find that all the vegetables are extra. Decent quality if hugely overpriced. Whole experience spoilt by a waiter who hovered over us like a bad smell and continually asked "is everything excellent". Pretentious hardly begins to describe the place.

Have been to this restaurant many times over the years. Eaten in the private room, always been treated well and invariably had a great experience. Having booked and requested a booth, we arrived and had a drink in the overcrowded bar. My husband asked three times to be seated and we were eventually shown to a table in the 'overspill'... More

The customer service at Ruth's Chris is superseded only by the quality and taste of its food. I generally make reservations from my iPhone, which is very easy to do. I love how they strive to celebrate any occasion: birthday, anniversary, etc. they adorn the table with celebratory confetti and bring a full-sized dessert. If it is your Anniversary, they... More

Wearing a suit doesn't make you a good restaurant. This is the second time we have given the "happy hour" a chance. We had to wait for a table, put our name on the waiting list. People came in after us and were seated before us due to a "misunderstanding" This is such an overpriced elitest place to be treated... More

New Years Eve we enjoyed the filet special with two 5 oz lobster tails and it was delicious. The steak was tender and full of flavor, but the key is the steak temperature was perfect. The filet stayed warm though out the meal. The lobster tails were tender and delicious. Service was great. What a meal to end the year.

Always a great meal. A few specials, but all of the regular menu at non inflated prices. Busy but not rushed.

Excellent service and nice LOOKING gristly tough porterhouse. Comfortable venue and nice crowd including dress up and families. Second and our last visit to this location with similar disappointment.

We decided at last min to stop for their fabulous Seafood Tower. It was crowded ; no problem to sit at bar to eat. Great food! Excellent service--we had 3 people serving us. Did not care for the jumbo shrimp & they told us when they are that large, they tend to be a little tough & took it off... More
