  • Most highly overrated steakhouse
    Dissatisfied
    Dined on 11/28/2013
    As steakhouses go this is highly overrated. The food on Thanksgiving was terribly pedestrian. Nothing subtle about any of the seasonings. They're neither good seasoners nor sauciers, in my opinion. The sweet potatoe casserole was almost solid sugar! The gravy was not outstanding. The help is all show; appearing to be there for you to monitor and help you. But, really posing all the way. Eating the whole meal without the drink arriving is appalling. All in all, a horrible waste of a lot of money! Denny's-grade food (sorry, no offense to Dennys!) at atrocious attorneys-only prices. I'll save my next special occasion money for the Metropolitan. There I know everything will be outstanding, memorable, worth it!

    The food was good to above average - we were seated (6) by the kitchen so it was noisy and not a nice view And the service was provided by an angry waiter who certainly did not treat us with an respect at all ! Never again....there were 3 people with us who had never been to a Ruth's Chris before and our experience did not make make them want to return.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    We went to Ruth's Chris expecting a delicious steak. Unfortunately, it wasn't that good. In fact, we had just had a steak before at The Grill at Nordstrom (Seattle), which beat the Ruth's Chris steak hand's down. The service started good, but then we never saw our waiter again. While we had good appetizers at the 9-11 Happy Hour the night before, the next day's meal was very disappointing.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!
