I like the Savor Sarasota specials, and the Ruth's Chris one offered a 3 course filet mignon dinner at $32, such a bargain. On a Sunday evening, the restaurant was subdued, and I liked having my car valeted. The front desk staff seated us promptly, but without any warmth or smiles. I contrast this with the Capital Grille staff, who hold doors, smile broadly, and make you feel welcomed. Our table server was efficient and knowledgeable, but no more gracious than the front house personnel. The food, thank goodness, was good. If Ruth's Chris doesn't want the Savor Sarasota diner, they should not take part in the campaign. Unlike my experience at the Capital Grille, where I made another reservation on my way out the door, I would NOT return to Ruth's Chris, so they did not convert a newcomer into a client. With food as good as theirs, that's a shame.

The cost of having dinner there is quite costly and over my budget but their happy hour is amazing. Get there early

My wife and I went there for Father's Day. As expected they were very busy and this initially effected the service. However, the food was excellent. We had the Savor Sarasota menu and the steaks were excellent. This is a great value. The service at first was slow but when it was brought to their attention, it was immediately corrected. This is one of my favorite places in Sarasota and we will go back again soon.

We were with a group of seven women celebrating a bride-to-be. We had a very late reservation and expected to be rushed. I've never in my life received such personalized and genuine service. The meal was delicious, the pace was perfect, and the ambiance was beautiful. Our server, Ryan, was knowledgable and engaging. He ensured we had a lovely dining experience from beginning to end. The manager, Rich, and busboy, Nick, also helped make our night memorable. Pleasing 7 women isn't an easy task but we were all thrilled with how the evening turned out. Thank you for the memorable night.

We have visited Ruth's Chris Steak House before, so we knew we were in for a treat. The steaks generally are very good and well prepared. I prefer my meat cooked medium rare, and it always comes out nice. However, my daughter likes her steaks cooked medium. When our dishes arrived, my fillet was perfect, but hers was under-cooked. The waiter took it back, but when he returned it it was still too rare...
However, she found a solution. Because the plate was super hot, she was using it to cook the meat by cutting off thin slices and placing them flat on the plate.
We also enjoyed a side of potatoes au gratin and mushrooms.
Very good dinner.
