It just wasn't what it used to be. It felt more like a somewhat nicer outback steakhouse than Ruth's Chris. Waiter forgot my wife's wine and he could be overheard arguing with another writer at their corner station. They were not enforcing the already light dress code. It was just weird. Probably just out of practice due to all the covid restrictions but still, I expect much more from Ruth's Chris.

Went here for Valentine's Day lunch, 2021. It just snowed about a foot in the Seattle area and was starting to let up. We parked in the nearby parking garage for $10 and walked a few minutes to be cheerfully greeted at reception. The restaurant seemed quiet, but ready to serve. Our table was downstairs in the banquet area, sufficiently distanced from other tables. The waiter, Grady, did an excellent job taking our orders and making sure we were comfortable. We started with an awesome lobster bisque soup and tasty wedge salad. I proceeded to move forward with a flight of different Old Fashioned cocktails which were equally great, and for entrees, we got a bone-in filet, twin lobster tails and stuffed chicken breast. Including sides of baked potato and creamed spinach, the meal was wonderful. We'd definitely come here again!

We made a last minute reservation for lunch as we happened to be nearby. The restaurant was quiet due to the snowfall and Covid seating restrictions but that's not even a complaint.
Tim, our server, was outstanding. He is definitely an asset to Ruth's Chris and we enjoyed our time with him. Everyone we encountered was super friendly.
Our food was perfect; crab cakes, caesar salad, filets, french fries. The perfect meal in our opinion!
Will be back for sure!

Food was over cooked and expensive. Steak tasted bland. Mash potatoes were over 20 dollars for a small plate and weren’t even seasoned.

The evening was great except for the steak. We ordered the Ribeye and it was too thin and not what the great steak used to be. Save your money. The waiter was to bring us more bread but never came back with that. Dissatisfied.

Ruth's Chris is our go to restaurant in Seattle. We normally stay in Seattle on Saturday Nights for Seahawks home games and have dinner at Ruth's Chris. COVID cost us the in person experience at the game but not a nice dinner. The steaks were wonderful as always. There is something with the aging process and preparation at Ruth's that makes the steaks consistently the best.

The server was stand-offish. He was very disengage. He wasn’t inviting or welcoming. He was cold. The topping on the sweet potato soufflé wasn’t properly prepared. It was raw sugar left on top. The creme brûlée was ice-cold. The topping was cold. It should have been warm sugar. The silverware was dirty. It literally had food leftovers stuck on them. I asked for hot water and didn’t get it. I asked for a top to my bottled water. The server wouldn’t even put plastic wrap on it. He was horrible. I left an $80 tip, and the food was nearly $400, because my children and I want to return and hopefully have a better experience with another server. I definitely don’t want Joel ever again. I even tried positive re-enforcements. I don’t want to have to say that Joel was horrible, but if we go back and he’s our server, we will leave.

Casual elegance can be found at Ruth's Chris. The dining experience is enhanced by the excellent service. High quality entrees and sides make this an option for both meat lovers as well as vegetarians who want to have good conversation with good food. You can rely on the consistency of the experience when dining at any Ruth's Chris location.
