I made reservations for 4 pm got there and they don’t seat until 4:30. Front desk girl was rude, it was freezing told waitress she came later and said she got out dessert then when bill came she only took 1 dessert off. Probably won’t go back again and your app should get the times fixed.

Our food and service was excellent. The only noticeable problem was the cracked and ripped black leather chairs in the lobby. For such an upscale venue, those did not offer the best of first impressions. Also, the lighting coming down the stairs could have been a bit brighter. It felt a bit unsafe.

Server did not offer the drink that should have been included with kid’s meal. While the restaurant was not busy at all, we did not get fast/attentive service. Food had too much salt, even kid’s dish which we explicitly requested less salt.

We made a reservation for 7:15 table. We arrive 5 minutes early. We were waiting to be seated for 30 minutes with no updates from hostess. We eventually saw there were 3 other parties ahead of us that had not been seated either. Those parties received their seats in the upstairs dining room, however, we were told that we would have to sit in the downstairs area in a back corner because they couldn’t give us a time for an upstairs table. We took the downstairs seating because it was too late to go elsewhere.
They seated us in the dingy back corner next to a table full of dirty dishes and uneaten food. Lovely atmosphere. They expect a customer to want to spend $200 on a meal sitting next to a table of dirty dishes!!!
By the way, I had to request that the table be cleared because we sat there for 15 minutes with no one coming to clear it.
To summarize, just know that this restaurant over books their tables probably in case of no shows and they really don’t care who they upset by making the customer wait long periods for the table that they made a reservation for.
I guess they feel that they are doing so well that they don’t really care as they have a captive audience in busy Bellevue with few decent restaurants in this price point with white table cloths.
With that said, I suggest that this restaurant needs a refurbishment. It is very old, tired, and smelly.
They also need to quit the overbooking of tables. You should be able to sit down within a reasonable amount of time provided you are not late.
I will say that the manager comped us an appetizer, but the evening was ruined with no way to save it for us I’m afraid. No seating in the upper dining room, seating next to a dirty table, and having to wait a long time for the table, was just too much to overcome with a comped appetizer. Nice gesture but no coming back from this one. We also eat at this restaurant for dinner a couple times a month because the food is decent, however, we might have to go elsewhere.

We were very excited to try this restaurant out! Our waiter was very nice and helpful! My medium rare steak came medium well. My husband was delivered the incorrect beer, but it wasn't noticed until he ordered another one and the waiter saw it was a different color than the first.

So we indicated we were celebrating a birthday in our reservation. The table was sprinkled with confetti for the birthday. However, the server never asked us how we would like to handle dessert for the birthday attendee. Our server never took the time to ask who's birthday is was or who we were celebrating. Some places will bring out a creme brulee with a candle, or ask if we would like to order something specific for the guest with the birthday. Neither of these things happened. Just to be clear, I'm not expecting dessert to be "comp'd".

Also our server disappeared for long periods of time.

The food was good. Food was cooked well. Other wait staff were attentive in keeping our water's filled.

While the service was great and the ambience perfect for a special meal, the main ingredient .. the steak ... was mediocre at best. For the money, it wasn't tender and smaller than one would expect. I'm happy to pay big bucks but expect value.

it was a fine dinner, friendly enough staff, which made for decent ambiance. Not very crowded, so not too noisy either. But, frankly, for a $60 ribeye, I expected it to 1) be cooked to order...most of it was medium to medium well, not medium rare as ordered 2) have a decent sear...on mine the grill/griddle marks were pale, 3) look appetizing...my steak came out dripping wet, just slopped with butter, and 4) be an obviously prime grade steak...it wasn’t a particularly marbled cut for what they said would be USDA Prime in the top 2% of cuts, and certainly wasn’t easy to cut, so it wouldn’t have been aged very much if at all. I expected more for a restaurant who built its reputation as a steakhouse. I’d never go back.

I think the only issues, was one of the glasses of wine was a lot more then we thought. But, it could have been an oversight on the menu price. but other then that it was very good!

Excellent food. Service was great. Aaron did a great job. An anniversary staple for my wife and I. I would like to see you pay some attention to the STATED dress code. You post it but there is no enforcement as evidenced by looking around.

Our filet and ribeye steaks were excellent and the service by Aaron hit just the right note. The dining room feels a bit dated and lacking in any specific ambiance so while I would recommend the restaurant for the food and service, I wouldn't recommend it for a special occasion.

We enjoyed a wonderful Anniversary dinner at Ruth’s Chris. We tried the classic three course meal and were not disappointed. The food was satiating and prepared with care. Our waiter was friendly with a sparkling smile. He was attentive but subtle in his approaches; he knew just when to stop by. The strawberry shortcake was ample and satisfying but not too sweet. Very well done. A visit worth repeating!

My husband and I love visiting Ruth’s. We’ve been a few times whenever we visit Bellevue. Love the quality of the steaks and we’ve always had fantastic service. Definitely recommend going!

P.S. Pls fix the smaller Ruth’s sign outside, it doesn’t represent the brand and what is inside when the outside isn’t well kept.

Never disappoints. Another fantastic meal. Fire Roasted corn side is always unique and excellent. Their 3 course meal special is great value and always available. They had a crusted mushroom truffle filet on the menu which was delicious and unique. Our waiter was very friendly, attentive and efficient. Recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly. Always reliably and consistently great!

When I made the reservation on line I requested a quiet table for two so my husband and I could relax and enjoy a special dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. To our surprise the Bellevue crew dressed up our table with "Happy Anniversary" stickers sitting on the white tablecloth and delighted us with a complimentary champagne toast. The food and service was wonderful and made our special day even more perfect! Thank you everyone....
