All of the staff sincerely make you feel as if your important and welcomed at Ruth's, the management always makes a point of stopping by your table to insure that everything is going as expected and she is extremely pleasant, kind and considerate (Thank-you Becky). Food is always superb and well presented. Grand Rapids Best!!!

Food and service were great! Very noisy, had to yell across a table for 2 for my husband (who is not hard of hearing) to hear me. Hard to carry on a conversation.

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.

We eat here two night in a row, each year during a business conference. One night we are entertaining customers, the second we enjoy with family who we see twice each year. The food is consistently outstanding as is the service and ambiance. Because it is a busy place, the noise level is quite high, the only drawback we experience. Highly recommended!

Average experience for its type. I like the steaks at the Chop House across the street better. Ruth's Chris has a slight edge when it comes to the quality of their service but the steak is what really matters to me.

I think Kurt (?) was waiter. He was excellent. Always there when we needed without being around too much.
RC is excellent but a little pricey.

Great Experience! Waitstaff were awesome and on it. Only thing that could be better was the seating. We feel far away from table and we kind of sunk in the seats. Seats were more like casual reading chairs.

We love this restaurant for any reason. It does not have to be a special occasion. The food is always excellent, staff amazing and they serve great cocktails and wine. We were seated next to the fireplace on a cold night and loved it. We come as often as we can because we don’t live in Grand Rapids year around. We never miss eating there when we are in the area, which is about 6 times a year.

I went here for a dinner date with my boyfriend and we were so well taken care of by our waiter and the rest of the staff at the establishment. The waiter was EXTEMELY knowledgeable and answered every single question we had, including recommending a fantastic Malbec (out of a 200+ wine selection) and being able to describe it effortlessly without hesitation. We are definitely coming back and I can’t wait to take my family/friends here when they come to visit. Truly an exceptional experience.

I was extremely disappointed. Ruth Chris has been one of my all time favorites and this one left a great deal of disappointment. My high end steak had little flavor and seemed a bit overdone. It was an expensive meal and it was my birthday. Nothing was offered as a celebration for me. My companion said he never wanted to go there again. I have eaten at this chain many times , all over the US, and never have had this dismal an experience, until now. I may never visit another Ruth Chris after this experience. SAD!!!

LOVED it here! This was my first time at Ruth's Chris. I went with my boyfriend for a date night. They laid rose petals on the table for us and put us in a nice quiet spot for the two of us. Our waitress was super nice, attentive and helpful. We both got the cowboy ribeye and it was AMAZING. Highly recommend! The Mushrooms were very good, too; this is the first item I have ever enjoyed eating just mushrooms. We also had the featured salad as an appetizer. Mushrooms and the salad were recommended by our waitress, and were excellent recommendations. Drinks were very good, too. We hope to go back again (soon!).

My husband and I recently celebrated our 13th anniversary with you. Upon being seated at our table I was very disappointed to be seated at a table in between two other couples where our conversation was part of theirs , there was no Ambiance to celebrate our special evening.
The saving grace and the only reason I would return back to that location was our wonderful waiter Bryan he was not only kind and accommodating but the service was impeccable we didn't need for anything all night long he also was kind enough to offer to keep our meal until the end of our show and when we went back to retrieve it he was there with a big smile asking how things went I felt very connected to him even though he was our waiter you have a wonderful person and a wonderful server and Bryan

An excellent Ruth's Chris - food is outstanding (was dining with a New Orleans native who had gone to the original many times and he thought the food was about as great). Service was friendly and efficient. Great business dinner spot in downtown GR.

There are not words to describe the excellence at this Ruth’s Chris location. Even if you have tried the brand elsewhere in the world, make time to Dine with the team at the Amway Ruth’s Chris. Becky, Roger, Patrick, and entire team will ensure you have an amazing dinning experience.
Just lovely!

Have always had great service there and most of the food is excellent. This trip I got the petite tenderloin and lobster and it wasn't that exceptional. Both the steak and lobster were over-cooked and the steak lightly grizzly. Excellent restaurant but I just wouldn't get this item again.

So incredibly overpriced. If the focus is the meat then why charge $9 for a basic salad...service was good but it should be for what you’re paying. Sorry just doesn’t do it for me.

The food was great and the portions were perfect. I had asked for a specific kind of wine and our waiter took the time to go to the kitchen and ask if it was available. It was my father-in-law's 80th birthday he was happy that the restaurant was able to accomadate all seven of our family members in a intimate table .
