I hate a wonderful 'date night' with my 17 year old son! A perfect menu for both of us, incredibly kind and fun waitstaff and the food - delicious!

We stopped in after the camper show with some friends. It was there first time and they loved it.
We will be back in February after the boat show.

Roger Chu did a great job as manager and was very hospitable to us. Service and food were outstanding. Only disappointment was the au gratin potatoes were re-done and we liked the old way that they were prepared better. Steaks were excellent!

Really enjoyed our meal. At 5:00 pm on a weeknight we got a lovely window table and the first hour of our experience was very quiet and relaxing. Excellent service from Elaine. Highlights of the meal we're veal osso bucco ravioli, perfectly cooked filet and ribeye, and we'll crafted, tasty Manhattan Eastside cocktails with premium bourbon and drunken cherries. Recommend sharing appetizers, salads and sides. Our wallets and cholesterol levels can't take frequent visits but it's a definite a few times a year.

Our food was great, however the service was sporadic and non attentive by our server. No suggestions for drinks or return visit to see how food was. She also did not ask if we wanted after dinner drinks or coffee. Dining room manager helped get us a new baked potato.

Our waiter, Ian, is terrific, very attentive & fun without being overly present. The only complaint is that we were seated near a door to the outside... each time it opened, we were blasted by freezing cold air. Other than that, a wonderful experience as usual at Ruth's Chris of GR.

I just want everyone to know that by far this is the most amazing Ruth’s in the world. The management and the wait staff and bar team is just untouchable! They’ve Got It!
It’s our favorite spot . You won’t be disappointed. Don’t think if it as a chain restaurant because they exceed all the quality standards. It’s all about the experience. Love it!

Great place to dine if you have a corporate expense account. 2 of our 3 fillets were over cooked. One to the point it was sent back. A $50+ steak better be perfect. I’m comparing this to Chops in Atlanta and Emerils Delmonico in Vegas where I’ve dined multiple times. Sorry RC, your not in the same league, except for price.

It was a delightful evening. The only complaint would be that we were seated somewhat close to the door, and it was a sub-zero evening in Michigan, so an icy burst of air would blow in every time someone came or left. Couldn't really be helped. The service was excellent and the food delicious.

 (Grand Rapids)·Dined on December 15, 2017

The one concern I would express is about the valet parking......it was a nightmare the night we dined with Ruth's.
It took 10 minutes to even find someone to check in my vehicle when we arrived. Then as instructed I texted my key tag number to the phone number given to me a full 20 minutes before we left our table.

When I went out to retrieve my vehicle the young lad said the ramp was crowded, everyone wants there vehicle and it would be at least 15 more minutes. After a very, very frustrating 32 minute wait our vehicle was brought around. Mind you that is a 52 minute notice from the time I let them know from inside restaurant.

I could have walked back and forth ten times to get my car. This type of service from the valet spoils the nice evening at Ruth's'.....of course it is our last thought when we leave. I would huddle up and review the process or find another valet.

Service was good, food was ok, plates were not hot when food came out, also the butter for the lobster dinner wasn't even melted-the whole reason for fresh live lobster is the hot butter, would try it again.

Food was great very delicious, shrimp was cold but just placed them on the 500 degree place to warm them. Service was good, but our server had a very needy table that kept pulling her away slowing things down for us. Love the restaurant, I just wish it was quieter so it was more romantic.
