    Seattle is full of great steak houses but Ruth's Chris takes the cake. I ordered the petite fillet with shrimp and everything about it was perfect!!! I also ordered a side of broccoli which was a little underdone but better than overdone. The baked potato was incredible and my boyfriend and I were able to split it which worked out well considering how much food we had. For dessert we ordered the cheesecake per a suggestion from our waiter Lance (who was great!) and boy was it good. We also enjoyed a very nice bottle of Woodward Canyon Old Vine Cab which is probably the best wine I've ever had. Overall the night was perfect in every way and I can't wait to go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Great steaks and outstanding service. Reasonable corkage fee if you bring your own wine. Dined late on a Wednesday and restaurant was only 10% full. Only down-side to the evening was the staff removing the linens and cutlery from tables all around us as they prepared for the next morning's breakfast crowd. As a result, by the time we were done with dessert (which was awesome), we felt like we were eating in a warehouse. Other than that, it was a great experience!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    I am a long time fan of Ruth's Chris. This meal was a disappointment. I think that the Christmas rush caused over crowding of the restaurant and subsequent poor service. In addition to poor service, my steak was horrible. One expects some fat on a ribeye but my steak had more fat than lean meat. I am now over my love of Ruth's Chris and will most likely go elsewhere in the future.

    Ruth's Chris can always can be counted on for excellent steaks. The wine list, both by the glass and bottle, is extensive. But it's the only place where I've seen it is less expensive to order four glasses of wine rather than a bottle. This is definetly a special occasion restaurant because it is pricey for the average wage earner. However, if you love a good steak, you will alwasy be happy here.

    The 3-course menu was a steal at Ruth Chris! $89 for two people included salad, entree, and a side with a desert to share. It was fantastic. Service was good, nice waiter - thanks Dee! Great for dining and seeing a show. Look for the deals though otherwise a bit pricey.

    We enjoyed dinner on Thanksgiving Day, and instead of steak had the turkey dinner as recommended by our waiter, Kevin. Everything was as described, the service was excellent as always at Ruth's Chris. We have been to various other locations including Los Cabos, San Diego, Beverly Hills and the San Fernando Valley and always have a wonderful time with excellent food and excellent service.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/17/2008
    I ordered the seafood salad. The waiter should have asked me if anything was wrong when he cleared away a paractically untouched salad. He did not, and as I taking a client out to lunch I did not want to cause a discussion.I found the lettuce greasy from the dressing and the shrimp were cut in half lengthwise so that it looked like a whole shrimp but in fact was half a shrimp. I found that really cheesy and a cheap trick. I ate the crab meat and left everything else.My client enjoyed her lunch. I have had many meals at your restaurant that were excellent, so this was really a surprise, and not a pleasant one. Arlene Sherman

    The service was top-notch. The food left a little to be desired, especially for the price. The suggested wine with my friend's meal was alright, nothing special. Looking back, I think it's more of a place to go for swanky drinks or to impress a client. Overall, I wasn't unhappy but I didn't leave the place raving about it either.

    Dined on 5/15/2008
    We went to Ruth's Chris as part of a search to find the best burger in Seattle. The Wagyu burger was not worth ordering again. The meat was overcooked and surprisingly lacking in flavor. The buns were ok, but not as good as the buns at Lunchbox. The lettuce had to be removed altogether, as it was a huge piece of iceberg that overwhelmed the burger. The fries were cold. I'll probably eventually meander back to Ruth's Chris, because my boyfriend likes the butter-laden steak, but they're pretty far down on my list. We have so many fabulous restaurants in Seattle that I don't like to waste my time and money at a mediocre venue.

    The major issue about this Ruth's Chris experience was we were kept waiting for quite a while although we had reservation. And the service during the waiting time wasn't that comfortable which gave us an impression that we were pushed to order from the bar. Everything else about that Mother's Day dinner was fantastic.

    Food and service were awesome - steak was the best I've ever tasted in my life...literally. Little nitpick is that steak is erved by itself, no veggies, carbs or anything - not that the steak needs it. It's good just by itself. but it forces you to order appetizers and sides (like salad, or potatoes, etc) which makes for a more expensive meal. But maybe you're supposed to love the steak by itself.
