I am a fan of the chain but this night was very poor. Ordered my steak medium rare and when it showed up at the table, it was far from it and was actually closer to being alive. Against my better judgment I allowed the steak to go back to the kitchen. Upon it's I was expecting it to be done correctly and it still was just barely rare throughout. Not being a fool, it did not go back to the kitchen again and I cut the cooked parts out and went on. My wife's filet who was expecting medium rage got hers closer to well done. The wait staff was not on the game either as many request had to be made for items to show up at the table. At the end of the day when the bill comes close to 200 dollars for 2 people , I do not think it is asking too much for them to be on their game. Very disappointing and probably will not be back as a 200 dollar value for dinner can definitely be had elsewhere in Grand Rapids and get equal or more than you pay for.

The food was outstanding, as was the service. For the reputation and cost of Ruth’s Chris, we would have enjoyed a quieter ambiance. The restaurant was very noisy and caused us to hurry through our meal to escape it.

The Manager we had spoken with was wonderful, very understanding and very personable, the small situation we had she made it right which it did make us feel like they did care on how we felt. I can't say enough about the great dinning.

Our server, Josh, did an outstanding job serving our table. He was aware of the fact that I had requested another particular server and that we were celebrating a birthday. Very attentive. The sommelier did a nice job helping me choose a nice bottle of Cabernet for the meal.

Outstanding all around. The only “complaints” I had was that the server waited a little too long to take our order initially and the prices are very high, but worth it for the most part.

Service was good. Crab cakes were good. Both 6 oz filets were tough. Mom's last bite was too much grizzle to cut through. This was the 2nd time dining here that my steak was not up to standard.
Dessert was delicious. Chocolate molten lava cake...

My first negative experience ever at a Ruth’s Chris. Three steaks ordered and all of them were either grossly undercooked or greatly overdone. Quite a bummer. Sent them back but changes the steak quality to recook and overall experience. Bummer of an important client business dinner.

We were sat right by the door, so the noise was louder than on previous visits and there was a cold wind every time the door opened, but none of this can be helped, simply one of the lower quality areas to sit. Our waitress missed a salad and a dessert that we ordered, but sent the dessert home with us and was eager to make it right.

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.
