Excellent Service - very good food.
Excellent service and very good food. High quality steaks, the seafood selections were not as good as the steak. Steaks were prepared perfectly. The layout is nice, but we did end up seated very close to the next table - it's the way the place is laid out. Very interesting (and good) drink menu as well. Prices are in line with other high end local eateries.

"Always The Best Dining Experience!
This was the first time for us at this location but have been to 3 locations in Hawaii. The Caesar Salad was delicious. My husband had the ribeye steak and I had the new cut, the bone-in filet mignon. They were both outstanding. Done perfectly. Ed our server was so cordial and made us feel so welcome. Absolutely no room for dessert. What a satisfying meal.

The rib eye 12oz. disappeared.
The rib eye 12oz. disappeared. It was perfectly cooked. Went without apps as I was determined to eat the whole steak...and did with some vegies...still had dessert, ate only half. Liked it soo much better than the over priced (and keeps going in that direction) Metropolitan.

Their filet served with butter
Their filet served with butter is simply the best filet in town. We celebrated a birthday and they served us a complimentary birthday dessert.

THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE MEAL
The service and food was excellent. We were warmly greeted at the hostess stand and immediately seated. Our wait person was knowledgeable and summarized for us the quality of steaks and how they are prepared in an appropriately concise manner. I am a gourmet when it comes to steaks and usually do not order them out because they are one of my grill specialities at home. This is one of the few times I have had a truly excellent steak in a restaurant. The side dishes were also very good. The only surprise was that we often poured wine for ourselves but that minor slip did not detract from an overall excellent experience. We will return!

Regulars whenever possible
We love to eat at Ruth's Chris whenever we can. The steaks are superb and cooked exactly as you request. The sides are large sized and feed at least two. My favorite is the Sweet Potato casserole. Of course, hubby always orders french fries. We try to leave room for their creme brûlée as it is always warm with the crunchy sugar topping. The fruit is seasonal and always just right.

It's our favorite Seattle
It's our favorite Seattle restaurant--particularly on show nights at the Paramount. The classic dinners are fantastic and a very good price.

Mother's Day Dining
Wow - Ruth's Chris never ceases to amaze me! Our family dines at Ruth's Chris several times throughout the year for not only special events or holidays, but also to just enjoy an amazing meal with wonderful and attentive staff. The Manager is very customer focused and often stops by our table to chat. Ruth's Chris is a MUST on the list of places to dine!

First time at Ruth's Chris
First time at Ruth's Chris and we were delighted with the whole evening. The steak was prepared perfectly and the halibut was fabulous. The service was timely and professional and our server guided us to not over order the large side dishes. Best bread pudding in a long time. Will definitely go back.

It's a simple formula: buy USDA prime steak from a solid purveyor, cook and serve it super hot with melted butter, great sides, and solid service. A bottle of The Prisoner for $85 is a very reasonably priced excellent wine with the ribeye. I always feel bad going to a chain restaurant rather than a local treasure, but in my experience, Ruth's Chris is the best steak house in every city not named Chicago or New York.

Prime Filet of Life
I had the Filet Mignon med-rare and it was melt in your mouth delicious. The sides of mashed potato's, creamed spinach, and salad were all top notch.

Food was wonderful but our waiter - Ed made the evening quite fun. He was very attentive but not hovering and he helped make the evening exceptional.

Reliable steak dinner
Our only hiccup was seating, at first we were seated in a booth with seats so low I was almost at eye level to the table..thankfully we could be accommodated at table and from then on enjoyed a very nice dinner, excellent steaks and my son had the lamb which was also very good. All in all a great meal, now all they need is reupholstering of rather over used booth seating!

Upscale Steak House
Best for special occations and adults only (no children friendly food or atmosphere). We went for an early dinner, hardly anyone there; very quiet. The steak was prepared perfectly, though the boyfreind complained it had a lot of grissle. My chicken was a bit salty but I tend to like very savory foods. I wish they had cheaper wines by the glass. No tab would be under $100 just between 2 entrees and a veggie side. All sides are served family style.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent meal - our wait staff was outstanding. We will definately return on our next visit to Seattle.

Good steak, cold fries!
Our service started good, we received our appetizers promptly and they were good. There was a 30-40 minutes lag between appetizers and salad, but, when the chopped salad's arrived they were good. Another lag of time before our steaks arrived sizzling hot with sides of two towers of fries, asparagus and lyonaise potatoes. The fries were stone cold, everyone knows you have to have pipping hot fries. The waiter quickly responded and within a few minutes we had two fresh, hot towers of fries which were devoured.

Food and service were what
Food and service were what we expected. However, the restaurant was out of the entrée that my husband wanted to order and which was the reason we went there. We also picked a bad night--there was a huge convention going on at the Convention Center a block away, and it made for a busy and noisy night at Ruth's Chris. Not exactly memorable.

Delicious Steak and Savory Sides
I went here with my sisters when we visited Seattle this past weekend. I had never been, but my older sister was dying to take us. I'm glad we went; the food was truly wonderful and the steak was so perfectly cooked. I had the filet cooked medium with a side of green beans and garlic. I also enjoyed the spinach salad to start which came with strawberries and feta. My sisters thoroughly enjoyed their steak/lobster plate with potatoes au gratin to share. For dessert, we tried the apple crumb which didn't disappoint. Our server Troy was very kind, knowledgeable and presented many options and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Ruth's Chris is always a treat
Outstanding food and service in comfortable atmosphere. I have eaten at several Ruth's Chris Steak Houses and find them to be consistently outstanding. This one was no exception. Just great.

We really enjoyed our meal. The food and service were excellent.

Consistent great food
This is a great steak house with lots of choices including chicken and seafood which are also great. Their classic menu is a good deal with all categories covered.

Filet Mignon was excellent! Good food and quality service.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are never disappointed at Ruth's Chris! The steaks, shrimp, and lobster are always cooked to perfection. The sweet potato casserole is to die for! Hubby can't live without RC french fries! Also, the wait staff continually refill our tea and water without us ever having to ask.

Celebrating our 15th anniversary we chose Ruths. WE got there early hoping to sit a the bar for a few drinks but the bar was packed. WE were able to scope a table at he upper level but the service is never good up there. We ordered our drinks and apps at the same time and our apps came before we got silverware or our drinks. Luckily our table was ready early so we could get to our table and relax. The restaurant had given us a table at the end with anniversary card from the restaurant and the rst of the night went off without a hitch! WE were not rushed and the service was great! Food was awesome as always and the wine list is never so overly high priced for good wine as the other restaurants in the same category.

Three generation gathering. Wait staff, Ryan and Sean, were attentive. Ryan made multiple trips to the kitchen to help with allergy issues. Worked to make a potentially disastrous dinner a wonderful event for all. Three picky eaters and an anxious grand dad were all set at ease and satisfied. I recommend them for a special night out!

My cousin and I were attending the Pink concert and wanted to have a nice dinner before the show. The food, the service and the atmosphere was as close to perfect as you can get. Will most definitely be going back.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very fine meal! Third in five days. Hard to be outstanding three times in four days bit they were close!

Always A Treat
We love to eat at Ruth's Chris when we visit the city. This time was no exception to the excellent food and atmosphere. The only difference noted was the waitress didn't seem to be as on top of her tables as we usually experience. We sat waiting for tea refills several times, but other than that she was really good. Another thing we noticed was the creme brûlée: this time our dessert was very cold as if it had been refrigerated for quite a while (usually it's slightly warm), and the sugar on top was burned, not browned.

Worth the visit in Seattle
Visited while on a business trip to Seattle. Reservation was a snap through Open Table app on my Iphone. Great location close to the downtown hotel. Food and service were outstanding - as usual. Highly recommend the filet mignon.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice dinner!
The service was excellent...always someone there to clear plates, refresh water or order another drink. The steaks and lamb chops were superb, but the halibut a little dry and bland. I would probably not order it again. The seared mahi mahi and crispy calamari were outstanding appetizers, and enough for four. The cobb salad is plenty to split between two, and was very good. Favorite sides were broiled tomatoes and au gratin potatoes. The bread pudding with bourbon sauce was good, but too large for one person...I would have actually preferred a caramel sauce, but I'm a "sweets" person. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for service and quality, but not sure the food was actually worth the hefty prices.

Dinner with My Friend
We chose the restaurant because we had not been in awhile. We booked a table and arrived to have a meal after shopping. Our server was very friendly, accomadating, and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and exactly what we wanted and expected. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

Thanksgiving meal for travelers
Took a family of 5 here on Thanksgiving during a trip. There were delicious Turkey platters for the adults and kids. Of course We had some steak too! Excellent wine list including local wineries.

An excellent place for steak.
An excellent place for steak. Not a got place for vegetarians .... but it is a steak house.
Nice bar. The food is simple (which is a good thing).
About the only negative I can think of is that they do cram lots of tables into their space. When it's busy it can feel crowded which can distract from the high-end experience.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
First Thanksgiving in a restaurant - and Ruth's Chris didn't disappoint...very thankful we chose to go! Incredible food topped only perhaps by the service!
