Let me start by saying we are "bar" eaters who frequent this particular Ruth's Chris. When I think of Ruth's Chris or any good steakhouse, I think of a wood paneled manly type of space that has a warm inviting character. The bar used to be that type place...until now. I agree this bar was dated and needed an update...however... More

This is a local Ruth Chris for me . Friends had reservations and asked me to join . I love my friends so I went I Uber there because for some unknown reason this location demands you valet even though they have a full parking lot that's mere steps from the door . Valet should always be an option !... More

I took my husband there for his birthday while vacationing in the area. We probably would not return because we have been to way better steakhouse's, We are not a fan to have our steak served in a pool of butter, we actually asked for another plate to put our steaks in and the food was extremely salty. The service... More

Having over the years often gone to the Ruth Chris' in Coral Gables, and having had a great meal and experience at the Auba RCs over Christmas, we looked forward to a great steak again. The steak was excellent, as always. Better than Morton's and other famous steakhouses. The filet mignon was almost as good as the Pine Club in... More

The good: The food is excellent (when it finally comes to the table). I have no idea where to start with this review, as the whole evening was a 'Comedy of Errors', of Shakespearean proportions. It seemed that the more junior and inexperienced the members of staff, the more polite and humble they were. The more senior the server, the... More

I have been to many a steakhouse, and let me be the first to tell you that, after leaving a steakhouse... I am engorged, full and pleased. Tonight I went with my wife and friends, and to be honest, this was not any of our feelings. The food, to start, was mediocre at best. Nothing special here. The petit filet,... More

Great food and excellent service. Our steak was cooked to perfection and our waiter, Miguel B., was fantastic. He was not only very service oriented but added that special personal touch. Our family of four had a great dinner experience. Thank you Miguel and Ruth Steakhouse!

I went to this restaurant by chance and on arrival was shown into a very nice dining area. I was told that the steaks were cooked at 1800degrees and served on plates 500degrees to maintain the meats temperature. The steaks were fantastic why the need to cause 3rd degree burns to diners? The hot plate issue apparently is the owners... More

Excellent food and service, on point from start to finish. Went to dinner with family and had a business lunch there recently, the latter serving most of the menu. This is a reliable pleasure with no difference from the NYC original. Rib steak on the bone, filet mignon, tuna tartar, fried calamari, seared tuna, ceasar salad made fresh, crab cakes,... More

And whilst the steak was good I have had better. Value for money, not really. The cost makes this restaurant exclusive so if that it what you want then this is the place
