Thank you so much for the happy birthday confetti on the table…that was a very sweet gesture that my husband was touched by. Our server was excellent, checked on us just enough to be there if we needed him but not overbearing. Food was excellent but a tad disappointing that everything was priced a la carte.

Ruth's Christ as a premier steakhouse known throughout the US is not blemished at Tampa area. However, some areas have to improved. Three of us had filet minion, Good quality and perfection to the order. However, side dish, in spite of its premium price, is below the quality standard and quite frankly not as good as that of a Longhorn Steakhouse. Baked potato to me was not Idaho quality, Likewise asparagus, mushroom crab appetizer. Overall good quality and yet need improvements.

I went on a Tuesday. It was not busy. I’m not entirely clear why you are forced to valet park. Most of the parking lot was empty with cones.

The service was ‘ok’. We decided to eat at the bar. I think it would have been better, but the bartender had several tables as well. The bartender disappeared for 20 minutes at a time.

The food is fantastic, which is why we go. However….the bread is probably the worst tasting bread I’ve ever had. Fortunately, I didn’t go there for the bread.

The experience wasn’t the best, but to be fair, it wasn’t entirely because of the staff. There was a table right next to the bar where a couple was sat. The lady spent about 20 minutes on a FaceTime call with what is I’ll assume is her granddaughter. This was followed by the gentleman taking a call for another 30 minutes on speakerphone at the loudest setting. The server was at the table several times and never said a word. I’m sorry….but it was LOUD.

To wrap up the experience a younger couple came in and sat next to us. While they weren’t smoking their joint in the restaurant, I’m pretty sure I got a contact high just sitting next to them.

Next time I’ll make the drive to St. Pete. Also, the men’s restroom smelled worse than most bathrooms at a grunge bar. It was disgusting. The have the food (except for the bread), but that’s about it. Not a good experience.

I was our friends anniversary and it’s their favorite restaurant. We had a great evening, the steak was really good and so were the side dishes but we were a bit disappointed with the bread. For such a fine restaurant the bread was dry and tasteless and the salad was drenched in salad dressing. But the drinks were good!

Been to many Ruth’s Chris and also this location before.
20 minutes to get seated despite open table reservation
Begged to get drinks
Server had to be flagged down entire dinner
No checking on us at all
Manager less than kind
Other people with same problems
Mushrooms and lobster Mac came out cold
Mac looked like Stouffers with lump lobster on top
Seafood tower without drawn butter
Not reflective on any dining ever at Ruth’s Chris.
Crowd there is loud and hats on backwards etc
Place has gone downhill overall. Hope they revert back to prior standards.

To start, I must say, I don’t know if I’ve ever had an experience like this at a restaurant of this caliber. Not a good one, to be quite frank. Upon sitting, the server was extremely abrupt, asked if we were ready for drinks (barely even looked at the menu at this point- quite honestly I didn’t know where the drink menu was, as it was never explained to us…) and seemed annoyed when I said “not yet.” I would go into further detail of what happened with the actual food, but I would like to remain somewhat anonymous. Anyway, after being extremely rude and demeaning, he then asked if we were ready to order.. Again, this caliber of restaurant, I am used to be treated with respect and kindness. Not only did he not go over the menu, offer suggestions, or speak about specials, he rushed through the entire process. I used to work at Berns for many years, as well as other fine establishments, and I found his service to be inexcusable. Quite honestly, I was very close to asking for someone else.. Our waters were empty throughout the entire meal, the bread was stale, food was subpar, when he brought the birthday dessert he only brought one one spoon. Also, he started clearing the table before asking if we would like boxes, and seemed very annoyed when we said yes.. Very disappointing as I’ve always heard great things about this restaurant. Unfortunately, I don’t see myself coming back. After being spoken down to multiple times, to lack of knowledge on the menu/website, awful service, and subpar food, I think it will be one and done for me. Ruth’s Chris, please do a better job with choosing who is representing you. If I wanted to feel humiliated by a server, I could definitely go somewhere with a smaller price tag.

Our server really ruined the experience. We brought our granddaughter as a special treat. Our waiter was in such a hurry, he barely let us get our order out before he bolted. Didn’t check on drinks. Forgot the bread and didn’t come by so that we could even ask for it. Never asked how our salads and appetizers were. Steaks were delicious but wrong temp. My 8 oz filet was cooked medium and my husbands 11 ox was med rare. They were supposed to be the reverse. The spinach and potatoes were lukewarm at best. The lobster bisque wasn’t very good. The Caesar salad wasn’t green and was a small portion. The entree arrived before the appetizers were cleared.

Just overall disappointing. I count on Ruth’s Chris to be consistent. The steaks were still delicious, but the rest of it brought the experience down.

Please get back on point.

Old and dingy. We were sat at a table that had a beat up ripped upholstery seat. We asked to be moved as there were small children sitting at two tables adjacent from us. We moved to a quieter area but the table setting was uncomfortable. My husband and I had no floor room. My feet were literally on the stable legs the whole dining experience. We both had the filet which was tasty but not the best I have had. We both could not taste the garlic in the garlic mashed potatoes. The brussels sprouts were to al dente. The servers were great. I will not be returning to this Ruth's Chris Steak House Westshore, Tampa.

The ambiance was great, the service was spectacular, the wine I chose was excellent, the butter for the bread was amazing. It ends there.

The sea bass was not good, fishy, seemed frozen, and cooked too quickly. The cream brûlée was more like lightly toasted icing.
