    Our food was really good - my husband's steak was flavorful and tender, my lobster was cooked just right, my Caesar salad was delightful, the wine was wonderful! However, the service was terrible! Our waiter was attentive when we first got there, and then we were forgotten. When another waiter brought our meals and whisked my wineglass away with our bread plates, I was surprised that I was not asked if I would like a second glass of wine. When he got about a step away from the table, I asked for one, and he said, "OH - sure!" and I waited about 20 more minutes for that glass of wine. At dessert, I asked for decaf with cream, and I never got a second cup. It took quite a long time to get a dessert menu also. I guess I expected more...

    Ruth Chris Bellevue had excellent service. And the steaks are among the best around. Easy to park, the Ruth Chris classic is a good deal if you want courses with sides. Highly recommend.

    We went here for our anniversary and a way to try another steak house in Bellevue. We were quite surprised at just how amazing it was, both the food and the service. The staff is extremely welcoming and when we left, everyone said good-bye. They have what they call Ruth's Classics and these are Prix Fixee 3 course meals at different levels. We chose the upgrade to get the 12 oz rib-eyes. The great thing is that you can substitute anything on it for anything off the regular menu. This was fantastic! And they had a really nice selection of salads and sides. The steaks came out on sizzling plates and extremely flavorful.

    We went to celebrate our anniversary. They had Happy Anniversary decorations on the table and everyone who came to the table wished us Happy Anniversary. The steaks are fabulous! Service was great! After we finished eating they took a picture of us and gave us a card with the picture in it, wishing us Happy Anniversary. The only bad thing was parking.

    We received an email and got reservations based upon the email. The email described the "Symphony dessert:" Honey-Cinnamon Cheesecake with Peach Compote and Chocolate Almond Bark. This was not as advertised. It was 1/6th the size of a dessert. It was not what we expected. We complained and the server expressed absolutely no concern or acknowledgement. We generally like the food at the restaurant so I am sure that we will return. However, we will not order this dessert.

    The setting was elegant and the service was very good. The actual dinner was a bit lack luster and a bit too pricey for what we received. We will be trying other fine diners to see if we have become jaded. My first experience with a Ruth's Chris was in Florida and was a delightful experience.

    We love this Ruth's Chris. Wonderful service, excellent food. Such a friendly staff. The bar/happy hour is always buzzing and if you head upstairs to the dining room, it's lovely white tablecloth service with fantastic food. Our go-to place for a special meal. Generous portions mean plenty of yummy leftovers for the next day. What's not to love?

    This is a great restaurant for people who enjoy steak but don't want to spend a ton. They have their 'classic' menu's that give you a salad, main course, and dessert for $48-54. I got the 54 dollar option in the Filet Mignon and the filet was huge. When you normally get a filet from a notable steak restaurant you usually get a dinky 5-7oz little round cut. This was twice that size so I was pleasantly surprised and couldn't even finish it. Great overall deal as you get a soup/salad, main course with 1 side, and a dessert all for 50. Go to Met or JH and you pay more just for your steak and then you gotta add in the rest so again, AMAZING value.

    I generally like RC for steaks. This Father's Day dinner was a bit different. We were seated in the make shift dining area, (usually used for large groups), and it seemed that our wait staff was the trainees. They were good but not that good. Forgot to bring items, food was slow to arrive, we didn't get any bread. Even our steaks were not cooked very well to our liking. I have to say I'm not in any rush to go back, and I was always a RC fan. It was my go to steak house. I will be looking for a new one.

    We had a table for 6 at 6 on 5/21. Our waiter was terrific!! He was very familiar with the menu... he told a "good story" about the various items that we had questions about thereby making the menu "come alive". His recommendations were great, the food outstanding, the wine intoxicating, and the entire evening was simply superb.

    We were given a gift certificate to Ruth's Chris. We don't eat meat, so it seemed like an unlikely gift for us. But we thought we'd check out their fresh fish. The waiter suggested their standard vegetable plate, which is basically a nicely presented dinner platter of many of their vegetable sides, marinated portobello being the center. This was the second time we had done this but for some reason, the sodium content on these delicious tasting vegetables must have been very high as my husband experienced water retention big time (not anything he'd experienced like that before.) That is perhaps one of the reasons it all tasted so good. I didn't find the taste too salty at all and I am not a salt lover. Next time we'll try the fish.

    In my lifetime, I have found that you can expect a good steak at a quality Steakhouse. I have eaten lunch, dinner, and been to their fabulous Happy Hour at Ruth's Chris and the food has been outstanding. The Sizzle sets them apart. The steaks are served sizzling, the stuffed chicken breast, the lump crab cakes all are all served sizzling---The presentation is fun and has always started a great dining experience. A recent price increase still makes their Happy Hour a top value but suggest you go early---can be very busy

    Always wanted to try it, and finally took my friend to lunch for her birthday. It was expensive. Our seating area seemed like an after thought to get more tables in the space around the open staircase . . . Everything was good, but not "out of this world, oh my gosh I have to come back". For the price, I think I will stick with my favorite . . .

    We chose from the fixed price, complete dinner offerings, which was great for the price an the helpings were just right in size. The salads were fresh and nicely prepared, filet and lobster tail were excellent! Creamed spinach was tasty (as usual), but we were disappointed in the green beans which were chewy and not very flavorful. Desert was yummy, and again just the right size. The wine choices were an excellent complement to the meal.

    We had a lovely family dinner experience at Ruth's Chris Steak house, everything was outstanding! Everything was so good that I would find it difficult to suggest one particular item. The steaks were done to perfection served on piping hot plates. The lobster tails were fresh and perfectly cooked, served outside the shell. The Lobster Mac & Cheese was divine, no scrimping on lobster in that dish!! Warm & relaxing atmosphere, excellent service, we never felt rushed. Worth the $$ Can't wait to go back!!

    My fiancé and I had the filet mignon meal, which included a starter, side, main course, and dessert. It was delicious. We dressed up because it was a special occasion for us, but many people were dressed casually. There were families, as well as other groups of adults. We were treated wonderfully and will certainly return.
