Food was very good, nice restaurant
Food was very good, nice restaurant and excellent waitstaff.
Was it good enough to make it a frequent dinner spot at $180 for my girlfriend and I to eat? Probably not.
Tried it out on our anniversary, pretty good but nothing that special.

A pleasurable evening, as always!
We went to Ruth's Chris for a special birthday, just two of us. We had a lovely table and loved our food. Hmmmmmmmm! We had told them ghat we had a special birthday and they wrote a personal Happy Birthday in chocolate on our dessert dish. Service was impeccable, we had the attention of two waitresses and the manager. What hospitality! Can't wait to go back!

Lacked professionalism. Waiter forgot things, his assistant dumped ice on my husband and did nothing. Should have sent steak back as it wasn't cooked to my liking. Asked for doggie bag and never received it. Paid for birthday dessert though it has always been on the house.
Note: We frequent his restaurant regularly and this was not a normal night for them. We were also placed in the back with people wearing jeans though we wore jackets and dress pants.

Although we had a brief (5 minute) wait for our reservation, the rest of the evening was perfect. From the food to the service, nothing disappointed. Highly recommend.

Best Steak in Town
Grand Rapids is finally growing up. At last GR can boast of a restaurant that offers serious food worthy of a real city.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
First time ever at a Ruth's Chris restaurant. will definitely go back! Wonderful evening which included awesome steaks (cooked perfectly) awesome sides (sweet potato au gratin was amazing) and cocktails (generously poured) and even a bottle of wine shared by my wife and I on our 10 year wedding anniversary. All for under $200! We had a wonderful time in a comfortable setting with very knowledgeable and friendly staff. This restaurant will be around a long time if they keep this up.

Mother's Day Steak
It's Ruth Chris... What else needs to be said?!! It was outstanding!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful treat for Mother's Day with my family. Great food with the best steaks - served hot! Service was excellent. Appreciated the round table dining for our group of 6 - the seating is comfortably placed not so close to others dining as well.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Favorite restaurant in town! The steaks are to die for, I recommend the Filet with blue cheese topping. The onion rings are the best I've ever had and the service is always great. I never see many kids here but they do have a children's menu. If you can't get a last minute reservation I'd try the lounge, the offer the full menu and it's first come first serve. Even on the weekends there usually isn't too long of a wait in there
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I enjoyed dinner there for our anniversary. Service was excellent. I ordered the t-bone and the wife ordered the filet with scallops. Both dishes were excellent. The only compliant is the combo filet and scallops was served swimming in butter. I would recommend requesting the butter be limited. We also had a very good salad wedge and creamed spinach.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall is was an amazing dining experience! It was the first time there and we loved it.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
After eating here you will not respect any other "steakhouse". You'll wonder what you've been eating if this is what steak taste like. I've been her multiple times and think it is worth every penny, no disappointments.

Outstanding Food and Service
Best steak dinner in years! Spicy lobster appetizer was amazing. Wine, food and service were top notch. My family and I will be dining here again soon.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had 7 people in our party and had a wonderful, delicious meal. The setting was elegant and we all enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely return next year.

Great Grand Rapis Steakhouse Gem
Incredible food and service. They've come a long way since the Grand Opening.

Ruth's Chris GR
My wife and I enjoyed our dinner very much. The service was great, food exceptional, all staff was delightful. If we go again I would request a table in the front or bar area which are new and freshly decorated. We were seated in the very back (old 1913 Room) with chairs that had black slip covers over them (it made my wife laugh, and we overheard the table next to us comment on the same thing). Overall good experience but with the price you pay, where we were seated needs to be eliminated or refurbished. The whole package is part of the "dinning experience".
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Special request for champagne upon arrival was honored. Excellent start to a fantastic dining experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and very helpful in his suggestions for wines and accompaniments. His extra touch at the end of our meal (bringing us a plate of fruits in a vanilla en-glaze with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate) was much appreciated.
Our table neighbors were very polite and friendly adding to the ambience of the room. Although we were a bit crowded into a corner, we were not neglected in the slightest.
Our food was phenomenal. Steaks were prepared exactly to order. Sides of mushrooms and potatoes au gratin were excellent. The wine: perfect.
A bit pricey but worth the money.

The food was spectacular, the wait staff was very informative, knowledgable and attentive. The sides were definitely enough for three, if not four. The steaks melted in your mouth. It is not the kind of food we normally eat, but for a special occasion it was a treat.

Perfect in evey way - the food exceeded expectations and the service was outstanding. Perfect for all those specail occasions. Highly recommeded at every level! Fun not stuffy.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first time dining at this restaurant. I will definitely be going there again. I had the petite filet and it was cooked to a perfect medium rare. The lobster bisque was also deliciously creamy! Everything I ordered was perfect. This was for a birthday and they wrote happy birthday in chocolate on the dessert plate. The service was excellent, timely, and the person was very knowledgeable.
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is great for being typical steakhouse fare. The service makes it an experience though.

Best restaurant in GR
Celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary with dinner here, just the 2 of us, instead of bringing the family, much to their dismay.
The food was excellent, and the service was terrific, the restaurant has modern décor and not too dark as most steak restaurants seem to be. They most definitely have the best steaks in GR. The manager and staff are also friendly and attentive.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My steak was very tasty and the asparagus was steamed to profection.

Excellent Anniversary Dinner
Took my wife for our 4 year anniversary. The food was excellent. The drinks were quick and always perfect. The service was outstanding. Our food was a little late in arriving and both the manager and our server immediately comped our drinks and gave us free desert for our special occasion. I cannot say enough positive things for the service. My only issue is that the restaurant was overall louder than I expected and would have preferred a quieter area to dine in.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ian, Ben & food amazing
What a wonderful evening we had and having Ian as or server just made it exceptional.
My guest for the evening put it simply by saying. "That was the best dinner I've ever had, when are we going back?"

Just awesome steaks!!!!! Always looking forward to the "next time"

Fortunate for GR
Great food, great service as always. Frequently tough to get table unless plan ahead but worth it.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed it one time, too expensive
Food was very good but not that much better than some lower price restaurants we like. Eating here was on my bucket list but probably won't return because of the price. Also, the tables were crowded together so if you want a nice private dining experience you won't get it.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best to linger...
Servings are generous. Nothing you want to rush through, as we had to do, having to attend the Theatre immediately following. For the prices paid, one would rather have TIME to savor the experience rather than hurry.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation and were directed to the bar. We were then seated promptly at 8:00 PM and greeted immediately by our server. The food was absolutely delicious and arrived in a timely manner. We were also brought a complimentary dessert to share for our anniversary. Food and service was top notch!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lots of hits, with a few misses
Easy to book on Open Table. Staff was courteous, friendly and knowledgable about wine. It's a great place, but not the romantic vibe. Go for a great meal and a special occasion, but know that the Setting is more "regular nice/high end restaurant" than "intimate dining experience". The waitress let us taste several wines til we got the right one. The barbecue shrimp was good, but not as amazing as I would have expected. Greek salad was perfect. Crab cakes were perfect.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Odd name - good food
The seating a little different for a nicer restaurant - benches with tables in front - so you were sharing a bench seat with the person at the table next to you. Not the most comfortable chairs either, but out side of that everything was great. Very accommodating. We were seated originally away from the windows and request to be closer - the Hostess graciously accommodated us!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Anniversary Dinner!
Ruth's Chris is always amazing! My husband and I absolutely love their perfectly seasoned and buttered steaks. They are cooked to perfection every time. Everything is simply made and delicious. We go on every special occasion or sit at the bar to enjoy their wonderful bar menu. DEFINITELY will come here as often as we can =). They really cater to your every need and are extremely attentive down to the smallest detail. We love Ruth's Chris!!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Terrific as always!
All four of us love steak enjoy treating ourselves at Ruth's Chris, and again, we were treated to the best, by the best! We have been to Ruth's Chris many times and have never been disappointed; from the first greeting at the front desk, the excellent wait staff and a great host in Buzz Goebel, the general manager.
Now two of us are hooked on the Cowboy Ribeye; the tomato onion salad with bleu cheese crumbles was a standout also; filets always excellent.
Thank you to the entire staff for a wonderful evening!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent steaks, excellent service
We received excellent service and the food was fantastic as usual. The layout of the restaurant was a bit different and finding your way in and out was like going through a maze, but they do a pretty good job of packing a lot of people in. The tables were close, but comfortable enough. The steaks were great, though were a bit under-done (this seemed to be a pattern as I heard a few other tables send their food back). I anticipated this and ordered my steak a little more done than usual, though I don't mind rare steaks if they are this high of quality.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to many Ruth's Chris restaurants around the country but have never had this much fun before. we sat at the bar and everyone we came in contact with was charming and made us feel like regulars...and again, this was our first time. I will say one thing, it won't be my last! Thanks to a wonderful staff!
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
The Dover sole was one of the best I ever had!
We will be back.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good experience. Great food.Great service. Everything about the diner was fantastic. Can't afford to go every week but will definitely be my restaurant for special occasions.

Ruth's Chris - Amazing!
We went here for a special occasion and were blown away. Neither my fiancée or I had ever been to a Ruth's Chris, so we chose to celebrate here as it has always been a restaurant we wanted to try. Here's the highlights:
1. All staff were extremely friendly and courteous.
2. Our server was exceptional in helping us choose between various appetizers and entrées, and make wine-by-the-glass selections since we didn't want a full bottle.
3. Our server understood that we wanted to eat slow and enjoy a second cocktail with our appetizer; she put our entrée order in and the timing was perfect
4. We were too full for dessert, so our server provided us with complimentary desserts to take home.
Fantastic experience from start to finish!

Girls night out
My mom and sister had never been to Ruth's Chris before and we were on a special girls night out , so I thought it would be the perfect place! And it was! We each tried a different protein so we could all have a little bit of everything and we were delighted by every bite! The service was amazing!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
We cannot often afford dinner at a place like Ruth's Chris, but we decided to go to celebrate our Fifth Wedding Anniversary. We'd been to this location before, but this time we had Greg for our server—he used to wait on us at another restaurant and just moved to this one. Ruth's Chris is always fantastic, but Greg's personal touch and immensely thoughtful service made the night unforgettable. Probably shouldn't have had a martini with the champagne, but our hotel was in walking distance, so all was well! :-)
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding experience all around!!
Attentive service. Perfect attention to detail. Mouthwatering food- enough said. Highly recommended.

Always a wonderful experience. Food and service have been extremely good.

Our waitress was Elaine and
Our waitress was Elaine and I cannot remember her assistant's name but they were both awesome! They brought out a live lobster so my 2 year old nephew could see and touch one. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish and I highly recommend it to you!

Great for the holidays
Going to RC for thanksgiving is a new tradition for me that started last year. I am a chef by trade so I have no desire to cook a giant meal at home. Also my family is small so we decided last year to start a new tradition. Just like last year the experience was great. The holiday prix fix menu was nice but I went for the fabulous steak instead. Everything was great and the service prompt, attentive and unobtrusive. All in all and excellent experience. Thanks.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Must do it at least once!
Pricey- yes, but definitely worth it! Best filet I've ever had and the service was impeccable. Greg was attentive, but didn't 'hover'. The side dishes are family-style, so don't feel you need to order a potato and vegetable just for yourself. Surprisingly, there were lots of people in jeans, and even several kids there - but it did not ruin the ambiance. It was a great place to take my parents for their 70 and 75 birthdays!
