For some reason our waiter was rude. My porter house steak was over cooked the first time and my baked potato appeared to be cooked in a microwaved. The brought out another steak about 30 mins later. It I didn’t want it. I paid for it and we left. Not sure why the wait was so rude. The salad was really good and came out quick. The food came out about 30-40 mins after the salad. Seattle’s Ruth Chris is the worst! Not worth the value. I was personally excited to eat here because The Metropolitan Grill has been my favorite for so long in Seattle, I thought since I eat at Ruth Chris anytime we’re in Hawaii, it’s always been great. Not worth the value. Really disappointed and unsatisfied.

I’ve been to a number of Ruth’s Chris around the country. I’ve always felt it to be a very special place with regards to food and service. This particular restaurant was quite average. The food was average. The ambiance was somewhat noisy and average as we were placed very close to the entrance and extra noise. Our server was very inattentive to my party as well. Very disappointing.

Dined solo and felt very welcomed and comfortable doing so. Filet and shrimp, roasted veggies, salad, and cheesecake - all were delicious. Ruby red greyhound is yummy! Ruth’s Chris Seattle has always delivered a positive experience and memorable meals.

I took my friends to experience high end steakhouse establishment like Ruth Chris because of Seattle Restaurant Week. The restaurant did an excellent job with beef but the rest is not worth mentioning.
2 waiter came to introduce themselves to us as our server but when we were ready to order, another waitress took their place without any explanation (we noticed the original 2were still in the restaurant).
It strikes me that the servers were new(?) as they lack the basics, leaning over and cross serving the entire meal, no sugar with the coffee when asked for (she brought the cream though) and no spoon! We sat there waiting for the waitress for a spoon while the coffee gets cold. When we finally ask the server who brought our deserts for sugar, spoon and a new cup of hot coffee, we were left to wait for the waitress again!
The hamburger we ordered is juicy but a bit too salty, the BLT was very good, the tenderloin (salad) was very tender but the salad was not tempting. The desert was okay.
Our waitress forgot to charge us for the cup of coffee, when reminded, reissue us a new bill!

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.
