    Fortunately, I was able to reserve a table for 3 on a Friday night. I wanted to treat my sons to a good steak since one of them was leaving for college this weekend. I had the New York cut and my sons ordered the petite filet w/shrimp. I've been to Ruth's Chris a couple times and I don't recall my steak being as good and flavorful. It was excellent --- cooked perfectly! My sons devoured their's as well. All-in-all, it was a wonderful dining experience -- from the beautiful, energetic hostess to the server and other staff.

    We enjoyed the Ruth Chris Classic Dinners- 3 courses + personal side- fixed price menu. The meal size was more than enough and we both had delicious dinners. The Happy Birthday confetti scatter on our table recognized our special night out. We will return for this option which was affordable.

    This visit was not my most memorable. Requested a booth through Open Table reservation but was given a four top that felt like it was in the middle of the restaurant, despite the restaurant being 3/4 empty at the time (6:30 pm on a Tuesday). My fault for not asking to be moved, but I didn't realize how odd it felt until after I'd been sitting there for a good 10 minutes and then it felt weird to ask. I should have since I think it set the tone for the evening. The waiter was a little overbearing and seemed bored. The food was fine - my mother loved her filet mignon. My filet was slightly undercooked, but again, just didn't have the wherewithal that night to say anything. It was still good, though my husband's NY strip was more tender.

    My girlfriend and I went here in celebration of our two year anniversary and we couldn't have had a better all around experience. The food was amazing. We both had the filet mignon which was well seasoned and tender. The Lobster Mac & Cheese was a nice compliment to the steak. Well made drinks and a complimentary desert with a "Happy Anniversary" message written in chocolate.

Ruth's Chris is more than just dinner...they'll provide a great affordable breakfast and the service is second to none!!! Last but not least, the decor upgrades are fantastic!!!

    I've been to Ruth's Chris once before in Chicago, and the Seattle location was just as nice of an experience. I went there to celebrate my friend's birthday, and when we sat at the table, there was festive "Happy Birthday" confetti all over. All the staff member's wished my friend a happy birthday, and we got a complimentary dessert! He had a great time. I would definitely recommened Rith's Chris to anyone celebrating a special occasion!

    Their food is actually very simple. One of my complaints about some nicer restaurants is they can ruin a simple but tasty dish trying too hard to make it fancy. They don't make that mistake at Ruth's Chris. Their food is simple comfort food. Their wait staff appears to take their work seriously, and I appreciate that.

    This restaurant has it nailed on the head. They deliver on all fronts! Great food - our salads were chilled, fresh, and crisp, perfectly cooked steaks and seafood (Scallops and Lobster). Service was impeccable. We told our server we were going to the theater and when we had leftovers to take home she suggested that we leave them at the restaurant where they would place them in the cooler and we could simple pick them up afterwards. That was much appreciated and so convenient. I always love it here and so we'll be back.

    I went for my one year anniversary. We both got the steak and lobster. The steak had a weird sauce it was not all too crazy about and lobster (and butter) was way too salty. I made the mistake of not asking for it to be replaced and have to say I did not enjoy my meal at all. I know if I would have asked, they would have changed it out. Completely my fault. The staff was warm and friendly and very apologetic. So when you go, make sure you ask for what you want. I would definitely go again and would have no problem in making sure my order is what I want.

    We have dined with Ruth's Chris numerous times in the past at numerous locations across the country. The food and experience this visit was as good as any we have had. We only had 90 minutes before a show we were heading to and they made things fit our schedule perfectly. We had a very comfortable booth in the main dining room. The 3 course meal that both my wife and I ordered provided more than enough food for a hearty appetite at an incredible price (salad, steak and lobster, and dessert for $55). We look forward to our next dining experience with Ruth's Chris!

    They take awesome care of you when you first arrive and I loved the added touches for my moms birthday. But as the meal went on we slowly drifted farther into the corner and we were forgotten about, I ran out of water and it was never even refilled, and for a place with that high of average ticket price you would think that wouldn't happen. And we noticed the noise level was quite loud. But overall great food good service and I would recommend this place to friends.

    Ruth Chris is a steak house, first and foremost, and they do it well. We've always been impressed with the tenderness of the meats and the preciseness of the cooking. Their menu of sides is moderate, but every item we've tasted was delightful, be sure to try the spinach au-gratin and the bbq shrimp. The service has always been quick, friendly, and efficient, with accommodating wait staff quickly working to make the visit the best they can.

    Been to this location many times and this time found service a little slow. We sat ahead of another table of 2 and they ended up getting their food 15 minutes before we did. Also steak wasn't up to their usual standards... Cost cutting?? It wasn't bad but wasn't the great food I know from past.

    My son and I had a very nice dinner at this hotel. I felt that the price was not too high for the amount of high quality food we received. The atmosphere was quiet and pleasant and conducive to talking and catching up. The steak was excellent and so were the bread and dessert. I would recommend this restaurant to adults without children.

    We love to frequent Ruth's Chris when we're in the city. Also, we bring out-of-town visitors to eat at Ruth's Chris as a special treat. The food is always excellent as well as the service. This particular visit was surprisingly different only because of the seating arrangement given to my friend and me. We were given a table right against a wall the had a table just about 5 feet above it. We were fine until someone was seated at that table. It was very odd eating our meal at someone's feet. It felt dirty so we asked to move. Our waiter moved us right away to a table nearby which was also right against a wall with a table above it. However, the table above us this time was slightly away from the edge so it didn't seem quite as bad.

    Not only was this restaurant noisy, almost everything we ordered was drenched in butter. I ordered a cabernet that I normally drink (usually paying approx. $17/bottle) and paid $15 per glass! The markup is unbelieveable and the wine was not even that good. I asked for something different and was "sold up" to another glass (at $25.00/glass.. yes, you read that correctly, for a simple cab/sav..) The only thing that we enjoyed was the table setting, as the staff did make an effort to recognize it was our anniversary.

    The ambiance was very nice. The service was great and always refilling out waters and even brought us an extra bread. We ordered the porterhouse for two and the server sliced it up and served the meat on our plate which was nice. This place is pretty expensive less that Morton's, so I'd probably only go here for a special occasion.
