We have eaten at several Ruth's Chris Steak Houses and this, by far, is the VERY BEST! Starting with the valet who dashes over to greet us and to open my door as soon as we pull up. Carolyn, the hostess, ALWAYS greets us by name and with a smile and attitude that makes us feel like we are VIP's or at least her favorite customers. We have had several waiters, waitresses and assistants and they, too, all greet us by name and in a very friendly "happy to see and serve you" attitude, as do both managers, Richard and Alex! Our wine is always chilled to perfection, just as we like it, when brought to our table which is located in a room that is most respectable and elegant and where we never feel rushed through our dinner. Now for the dining experience! The chopped salad is topped with crumbled bleu cheese and crispy onion rings which makes the flavor outstanding. We always order the petite filet which is a perfect size and is served on a plate hot enough for us to be warned by our server "Please be careful, the plate is hot". The chef somehow ALWAYS prepares our filets exactly as we order them and are so tender and juicy and are "melt in your mouth" delicious. The creamed spinach is better than my grandmother's, and she made the BEST! The Lyonnaise potatoes add that extra special flavorful bite to complete the meal, and all is served hot. We were disappointed our favorite dessert on the menu had been replaced by another more seasonal favorite, BUT---we were told to just request our favorite the next time we call to make our dinner reservations and the chef will prepare it for us. I do not ever remember dining in another Ruth's Chris or in any other restaurant where the staff, the service, the food, the atmosphere ALL deserve 5* (Five Stars).

Had some time so decided to try Ruth's Chris Steak House.
Atmosphere was so so, noticed lots of kids dining with parents, not so much an issue with kids but everyone of them was playing game son their phones or ipod devices. Wait staff was excellent.
Had the twin rock lobster with 16oz ribeye. Lobster, was cooked perfect, steak was a little overcooked but still very good. Sides were great.
Overall a good experience.

Happy hour at the bar is amazing! $7 food and drink items including but not limited to filet steak sandwich, ahi tuna, and lobster bites. Drinks include Moscow Mule, house red/white wine (generous pour), Margaritas as well as others. ALL FOR $7 EACH!!! Great for any occasion you will leave full, a little tipsy and VERY happy. You will not be disappointed.

My favorite rest in FTLAUD. All the right moves. Best bartenders best wait staff. Ruth jack and joe. Top class great people. Homemade chips - hot - best drinks in FTLAUD. And OMG ~ I don't care what you order. It's all the best if the best. Do yourself a favor - forget all of the rest. This is the BEST. ***** Tim Evans 10 years of patronizing this marvelous place!

First let me say my wife and I love RCSH. After being recommended we immediately loved the steak and have continually advised friends, family and clients not to miss the experience.We have dined in about 6 throughout the USA and it is always the first restaurant we look to book. Booked for 7.00, arrived at 6.30 and asked if we wanted a table or booth. Chose the booth and went to the cocktail bar for a drink. At 7.05 went to the desk and said we were ready and were shown to a table! Reminded them that, at their suggestion, a booth would be our preferred choice. "We don't have a booth ready". No matter we'll wait. Went back into the bar and waited. Bar staff were perturbed on our behalf and went to see what the wait was. Server then shows us to our table but
whilst she mouths have a nice meal it was purely lip service. Our waiter introduces himself as does the manager Richard, who eagerly tells us that his RCSH is in the top six in the country. We order our meal and wine and wait. And wait. And wait. By the time the meal arrived we had drank 2/3rds of the wine.Our server had apologised for the long time in the meal arriving but it wasn't his fault. Meal arrived and steak was overcooked. Waiter immediately offered to reorder but by this time we couldn't be bothered in a further wait. The french fries were lukewarm. Not a happy experience and Richard, aware of the shortcomings, offered a free dessert and coffee but we declined as we rarely have desserts. He then reduced the cost of the steaks by half but the cost wasn't the point. We dine out to have an experience. Hopefully a fantastic experience. The waiter said all the right things but you judge a restaurant primarily on the food. Good it wasn't. Will continue to praise RCSH but certainly not the one in Fort Lauderdale.
