First, the food was wonderful, though pricey. Perfect steak and delicious Brussel sprouts with a wonderful red wine. We were invited here by friends on a busy Saturday night. Our party was seated at a round table that could have seated 6, so we were a little far for conversation. Add to that the noise level of the room and... More

We were a party of six, most of the meal was OK one steak was overcooked, my steak had no real flavor but was tender, wifes filet was a little chewy, lobster and shrimp were slightly overcooked. Service was very good as we did have to wait too long for our orders Forst time there and was expecting alot more

My husband and I ate here twice within two weeks on our travels through Tampa while we were to and from Cayman Brac. We sometimes plan our trip just so we can spend the night in Tampa and go to Ruth's Chris. On our last trip they certainly were, once again, on top of their game. Excellent food, beyond compare...

For a "chain" you would not know it. Local staff treats you right. (Even my car was waiting for me when we were leaving. Kudos to valet.). Steaks are cooked to perfection. Sides are excellent as well. Nice pace by the waiter, too. Yes, this place is not for the meek of wallet.

As always a perfect evening! The food as always was fantastic as well as the service. One of my most enjoyable places to dine out for special evening. When I made the reservation I told them it was for a wedding anniversary and they spread rose petals across the table. Just a perfect touch.

This is the place to go for a special steak. My wife and I were going on a cruise the next day and we wanted to have a special evening out. The food and service was impeccable. Only downside was when we were waiting at the bar and the service was very slow because they only had two bartenders. I... More

Took my wife here for our Anniversary it was perfect food was spot on we both had the filet and lobster dinner. I really appreciated the extra touches like the waiter taking good the time to know our names. The dessert sampler that they brought out with Happy Anniversary on it was a nice touch.

Love Ruth Chris Tampa, our waiter Gerald was knowledgeable, polite and our meals were perfect. Steaks cooked to perfection, food was served hot with adequate time between appetizer, salad and entree'.
