Steaks came out cold to touch and rare when medium was requested for several people at the table. Potato sides were Luke warm food tasted as it it was several days old or not freshly made. Caesar salads were over dressed. Shrimp cooked rare and did not taste fresh. Food was left and not brought home. Over $600 for 6 of us. Place was empty and we were seated by kitchen and beverage station which was loud and had servers coming in and out and felt busy. We will never go back.

Went here with a friend looking for some tasteful steaks and seafood. We ordered crab cakes and lobster tail and it was very good. Our steaks on the other hand were not exciting. They were cooked well but were dry even though the plate was covered in juice. The flavor just was not there either... for the price I paid for the steaks I was expecting a better quality, but maybe I am wrong to assume that? Service seemed lacking but our waiter was very nice and we had multiple visits by others to make sure our water glasses were full and we had everything we needed. Sadly I do not think I would return, but the experience wasn't what I was expecting for the price we paid.

One of the best ribeye steaks I ever had, a bit too buttery through. I ordered it medium rare and it was exact!

The stuffed chicken breast, ordered by the wife, was really good as well. I tried some and liked it a bit more than the steak.

The waiter was great, one of the best. My girl says it was the best steak ever and we were presented complementary champagne as we celebrated our 10 year anniversary of being back in Seattle. It really doesn't get much better. A perfect evening, great food and service.

We had a great time, our servers were very nice but overworked. It took ten mins to get anyone to attend to us at the bar, our server had trouble keeping my iced tea filled and getting things to us as quick as normal. Food was great.

I booked this reservation almost a month ago for Christmas Day and confirmed twice. When we arrived despite many open tables we were sat in the bar area where we waited for 15 minutes for a server to even acknowledge us. When someone did they took out drink order and said our real server would be by shortly. A manager and server came by and the manager apologized while saying he would get us an appetizer for our wait ( which never came). A male server took our order who we never saw again. My steak was medium instead of medium rare but no server to talk to so I ate it. We finished our meal and a female server said she was taking over. I said we were ready for our dessert since we had finished steak 15 minutes before and asked for coffee. The coffee came without requested cream and it took another 10 minutes to get a spoon. Dessert came 45 minutes after we finished steak and was not bread pudding and ice cream which we ordered in the 3 course - it was cheese cake and ice cream. The only saving grace was that the server did get us the white chocolate bread pudding as a substitute. Our water glass was not refilled until right before we left and I never got more coffee. I expect better service at a Ruth’s Chris and it appeared everyone at the table got but not is because we got the bar area despite making reservations weeks ahead.

Celebrating life and killing cancer! We have been spending Monday-Friday away from home doing medical treatments at University of Washington. So we were happy to see Ruth Chris Steak House was open for Christmas. Enjoying a early dinner together with great service, wonderful food and drink. Only down side was one of the steaks was not quite up to their normal standards.

Perfection. Everything was perfectly cooked. Our server, Josh, was personable, knowledgeable and very helpful with helping us choose from the menu. It was the best and most memorable dining experience we have had in a long while. We will be back and ask for Josh!

It's become a bit of a tradition for us to dine at Ruth's Chris on certain holidays. We usually have a great time and the food doesn't disappoint. The reason I am not rating it higher this time is that a group of five of us had reservations for Christmas Eve at 7:45pm. We arrived early in order to first have a drink at the bar and let the host know. We were not seated until a little past 8pm. We ordered drinks and dinner and all was well even with a couple of service hiccups, like no sharing plates and not getting bread when asked a second time. I get it; it was a holiday and folks were sacrificing their evening to serve others who were celebrating. Having been a server in the past, I can move past that. With dessert, we wanted drinks and dessert wines but we were told that the bar was closed and we could not have anything else. This seemed quite abrupt since at no time was last call announced. All you need to do with a dessert wine is pour it; no mixing involved. I completely understand everyone wanting to go home early on Christmas Eve but having known ahead of time would have helped. We could have made reservations earlier or easily been alerted when last call was going to happen. It was an abrupt ending to an otherwise festive and enjoyable evening. I didn't need a "downer surprise" and the end of our Christmas Eve celebration with friends.
UPDATE: I received a call from the restaurant with a sincere apology. It meant a lot to me. It is more than many places would have done in Seattle and I appreciate that. Kudos to Ruth's Chris! I will be back.

The food was excellent and the service very good. There was a small hiccup on the table set up. Dirty bread plate and a missing wine glass.
It’s a very busy place so the noise level was a bit high but the steak and lobster were prepared perfectly and the pice fix menu choice was a good value.

Service--sequencing/timing of food service very bad. Second time we have had this experience at Seattle Ruth's Chris. Never seem to have this problem at other restaurants.

Our server was very pleasant. Don't know if problem was server of kitchen Nonetheless, Entrees came before salad finished and dessert never received.

Had a 6:30 pm reservation. We arrived about 6:35 and when we checked in they said to wait. We waited almost 15 minutes. When we asked what the delay was the host said they worked some people in. He couldn’t tell us how long of a wait we would have. Don’t know why we made a reservation

We have been going to Ruth Chris Seattle for several years for our anniversary. They always make it special, rose petals in the table, champagne, and complimentary dessert! Food is excellent and any special request is never a problem. This year our waiter remembered us from previous visits.
