Food was wonderful as always! Our server, Ian, was great! He was able to suggest great wines for all of us just by how we describe what we like. Going to go back late December and looking forward to it!

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.

We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary as well as my wife's birthday so it was a special occasion. What an awesome dinner along with great service. The price is upper end but well worth it. We will be back.

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 .

By far this is the number 1 Ruth Chris in the world. They have the best bartenders in the city. 2 to call out is Tom and Stephanie. The entire team waiters and waitresses, the chefs etc are amazing Top knotch. The decor is wonderful upscale. Don’t think of this location as a chain restaurant because the leadership has groomed their entire staff as experts and extrodianary excellence with every customer. If you haven’t been book it for your next dinning experience.
Hats off to Becky, Roger, and their new addition to management Patrick. All 3 have the utmost passion in ensuring that you feel amazing while dinning and even the Thank you and goodbye is truely sincere.

Terrific service. Ordered the petite filet with chopped salad to start and asparagus as a side. Fantastic. It's what you'd expect. I should note that we had reservations (no way you can get in without one on a busy weekend) but we went in the middle of ArtPrize so it was exceptionally hectic. The staff was not compromised at all by this. Very enjoyable dinner date.

The Ruth's Chris at the Amway is by far the absolute best in the world. The Gm’s and assistant are amazing leaders and have built a vibrant reputation of excellence in everything everyone does everyday. The bartenders and wait staff are amazing and so knowledgeable about the menu options as well as paring of the perfect wine or beverage with dinner. People think of “Steak”when they hear Ruth’s Chris, and although that is true, they offer so many other options, from ahi tuna, veal ravioli, lobster, shrimp, huge family style side dishes and delicious salads, soups, and deserts. The decor is upscale trendy and has many dinning rooms, bar tables, atrium, small dinning rooms and also you can do private dinning options for special occasions.
If you have any future special occasions Ruth’s tops any other local restaurant in GRand Rapids hands down.

My wife and I drove 2 hours to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed.

Our waiter, Nathaniel, was outstanding! He was very knowledgeable about the menu and very engaging.We will ask for him on any return visit.

My wife had the filet and shrimp. I had the filet and lobster tail. The steaks were done to perfection. Both medium rare. My wife's shrimp were nice size and seasoned nicely with a Cajun dust. My lobster tail could have been a bit bigger (4 oz) but was well prepared and tasty. The sides,which are a la carte and "family" style, were excellent! We had augratin potatoes, a fire roasted corn and brocollini.

We shared the "chocolate duo", which is a molten lava cake and chocolate mousse for dessert. Too die for!!

The atmosphere was a bit noisy but expected for a bustling steak house. The decor was old school with nice linen and big comfortable chairs.

Overall this was a great experience! The menu was pricey but for a special occasion or to impress a date, this is the place!

We will definitely try to make it back for maybe another anniversary or birthday.

While certainly not an inexpensive dinner option, as always, Ruths Chris provides excellent food, service and atmosphere. In my opinion, it is the best steak house in Grand Rapids. It is always a treat to dine at one of these restaurant's and a location that we will certainly come back to.

Best steak I have ever had, no need for any sauce. The flavor of the steak alone was perfection. Mashed Potatoes were fantastic. Asparagus wasn’t the best I’ve had but was still good. It’s a little expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for. A fantastic meal that I am now craving.
