It has been a year since the four of us were in Sarasota and our last visit to Ruth Chris's Happy Hour also known as Swizzle, Sizzle, and Swirl. A limited Happy Hour menu for drinks and a light dinner was sufficient, satisfying,and savory. Three of us had a Ruth's Manhattan, which had a good dollop of Jim Beam, but... More

This was a birthday dinner celebration for our two husbands. All of our meals were delicious. We each had a different cut of beef - all were so tender and flavorful. Our sides were equally wonderful - sweet potato casserole with a crunchy sweet pecan topping, lobster mac-and-cheese, and roasted brussels sprouts with bacon. Even our alcoholic beverages and after-dinner... More

I planned a surprise birthday party for my husband's birthday the end of January. Kristen in sales handled EVERYTHING! She suggested appetizers for our 12 friends as they awaited our arrival that were delicious : shrimp skewers, beef wellington, cheese platter. Of course the food was delicious. I would HIGHLY recommend Ruth's Chris, Sarasota as a surprise Birthday fine dining... More

I've been here a few times over the years for special occasions and have never been disappointed. We arrived at our scheduled time and were seated right away. We were celebrating our anniversary and they had the table done up nice with rose petals and a happy anniversary card signed by the staff. Ordered the new york strip and my... More

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
