Hands down the most respectful staff I've ever encountered. Also the greatest steak I've ever had. I love the 500° plate and having a sizzling hot bite twenty minutes into my dinner. Will absolutely be coming back

Great place for lunch! We sat at the bar and were served promptly. Food was fantastic, I had the burger and the gf had the chicken sandwich which she gave rave reviews.
My only complaint is a small one... Literally... Why the 10 inch tvs at the bar? They need to be upgraded asap. Those things are ridiculous!

The really only downside is that it is too expensive for regular dining. But it's a great spot for Restaurant Week.
The filet was perfect, moist red interior with just the right amount of crunchy chat on the outside.

Sophisticated and stylish decor. The bar is a perfect place for cocktails.

Interesting place.

It had been many years since we had dined at a Ruth's Chris. I would say that while Ruth's Chris is a fine establishment I don't feel like it is premier dining; especially given the price point they are at.

We arrived a bit early for our reservation and received our first bit of interesting news. That was it was happy hour, but only if we sat in the bar area. Happy hour prices are not available in the dining area of the restaurant; first time for that one.

We did order crab stuffed mushrooms - fantastic and generously stuffed with super tasting crab. Perhaps a bit over priced at $17.

The wine list was interesting mostly because it is totally dominated by California wines. Which we both find strange given the wealth of fine Washington state wines.

The steakhouse salad was perfectly sized (meaning not too big) and very fresh.

We ordered the Petite Filet with Cognac Sauce, one of the very few steak cuts of reasonable size - 8 ounces. Most of the cuts are obscenely huge - 16 to 40 ounces. We ordered the steaks cooked medium - they arrived as practically perfect medium-rare (as expected by the way). The filet was very good, however the filets we've had recently at Bake's Place and Daniel's Broiler were much more tender and flavorful.

Bottom line - not sure Ruth's Chris is worth over $300 for dinner for two that we spent.

Ruth’s Classic meal was wonderful. I ordered the Mandarin Prochetto salad and my husband said the Caesar salad he had was the best ever. We both enjoyed the 6 oz fillet with shrimp on the 540 degree plate. I had the steakhouse potatoes and my husband had the garlic mashed potatoes. The dessert of blueberry cheesecake ala mode fished the meal nicely. We’d gone to The 5th Avenue Theatre musical “Marie-Dancing Still” before dinner, which made for an outstanding combo.

We have already recommended this restaurant to several friends. The only reason I marked 4 stars for the food was because the lobster bisque was missing any defining flavors. I have had it in the past and it was very rich and flavorful. I'm not sure if the recipe changed or if it was just an off night. Otherwise everything else was perfectly cooked and delicious.

Our small office took one of our staff members out for lunch because she is retiring. Ruth's Chris could not have made it any better. They made it very festive; we were seated at a table in an area all by ourselves; and the food was wonderful. They brought out a special dessert they had prepared for her.
The service was impeccable. I would definitely come back for any occasion. They know how to make it special.

For a restaurant that wasn't very busy at lunch, the service was slow. In addition, our meat was not served as ordered. It showed up medium rather than medium rare. The waiter was willing to recook our meat, but we were short on time and didn't take him up on his offer.

The maître d' had a fit that we showed up 10 minutes early to our reservation, and suggested that we "wait in the bar or something, that would be best" until it was time. When it was time, he just stared at me blankly until i reminded him of my name/reservation, upon which he got it wrong three times, and then finally told someone else to seat us, as he was much too busy.

As a counter point, we have lunch at a Denny's the next day, where the waitress was attentive, listened to our order, and was prompt and friendly in all other interactions with us. That guy could learn a few lessons from a Denny's waitress.

Service was good, but quality of steaks was very disappointing (tough, filled with gristle). We have been to Ruth Christ Steakhouses in a number of locations and this was the first time the steaks did not measure up. Don't think we'll return to this location any time soon.

We chose Ruth's Chris for a lovely dinner before attending the Sarah Brightman concert. There was a time when Ruth's Chris was a place to go for "special" occasions. I'm no longer convinced that this particular Ruth's Chris is interested in the "fine" dining concept. Let me be clear, NO DRESS CODE is enforced. Seattle has become a super liberal city. Owners and Mangers are paranoid about saying anything to badly dressed obnoxious customers that don't care about anyone but themselves. Wife beater t-shirts with arms covered in tattoo's is discusting enough let alone at a fine dining restaurant. Being surrounded by some of the worst dressed ill mannered loud people is offensive. Downtown Seattle has become a place patronized by strange people with no manners. Even walking to Ruth's Chris we did not feel safe. Going forward, we will stick to the "Eastside" restaurants. Bye-bye Seattle.......

Everyone was very welcoming and the lady and I were tabled right away. The lobster Mac and cheese was bomb and I’d definitely eat it again. The calamari had great flavor in it. The sizes of these were probably enough for us to get full for the both of us. Ribeye was on point and savory. Definitely coming back again.

I was disappointed by my experience. We went to celebrate an anniversary. Service was very slow initially. We had to wait about 5 minutes after being seated to be offered water then another 5 minutes before our actual waiter appeared. I had to reorder the iced tea I had asked for 5 minutes before. Visits by the waiter were few. He was nice when he did stop by which is why I didnt say anything to mgmt. The steak and side dishes were average. My wife had eaten a filet the night prior at Outback and thought it was much better (and much cheaper). The dessert was very good, though. So...disappointing is how I would describe the experience...$200 later.

Went in for a late lunch. They didn’t have some of the items we ordered because they hadn’t been prepared for the day. Both mine and my husbands steaks were underdone.
Service was good. The greater did come to our table while we were eating to make small talk which was uncomfortable and terrible timing.
