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'.

We just came here for our anniversary and walked out after sitting down at a table where ever dish that was set, was dirty! Food was crusted inside the water and wine glasses. The plates were greasy and had specks of crusted food as well. We told the waitress why we were leaving, but she didn't seem to care. Heading... More

Best steak that I've had a a steakhouse. I had calamari for an app - very tasty. Also had a huge fully loaded baked potato - yummy and more than enough to share. Same with all sides - we had creamy spinach, potatoes au gratin, grilled asparagus, cremini mushrooms. Was expensive but soooo worth it. No room for desert. Happy... More

On 11/5/16 My husband took me to dinner for an early birthday celebration. We started at the bar for a dinner because we arrived before our reservation. The remodel is outstanding and Joe the bar tender was really great! We had a couple of drinks and the BBQ Shrimp appetizer which was fabulous. Highly recommended! Then we moved to our... More

My friends and I went to Ruth Chris for my birthday celebration on 10/01. The service was fantastic and the food was out of this world! It is very pricey, but well worth it! None of us were disappointed!
