 (Vancouver)·Dined 6 days ago

I am a regular at Ruth Chris, this location specifically. I usually don't come for lunch but I have family in town so why not. Until today, I've only ever had one issue with my dining experience here. I don't know if my waitress was new or what but I hate when I have to track people down for things. She'd constantly dissappear from the floor for long periods of time. I waited for about 10 minutes to see if she'd pop back up so I could get my check but someone else handled it for me. Then she finally came over and I asked for her to box up my sister's food. She let someone else detain her so after waiting for a few minutes to come, my sister went and got the boxes herself. No one bothered to help me at the front desk to get my valet ticket stamped so I just did it myself too. It's definitely not the usual service we recieve from this establishment. I was pretty unhappy with it.

They were out of live lobster on a Sunday night at 5PM. The restaurant isn't far from Pike Place Market. When I said I'll be back tomorrow with my expense account I was told they wouldn't have lobster until Tuesday?!! Why don't you want my business? Go out and buy a $20 lobster at the market and charge triple for it...unreal!

This was my first visit to Ruth's Chris in Seattle and unfortunately, I was disappointed. I have been to other Ruth's Chris locations and my meal was exceptional. I started with a basic salad and the dressing was piled on which overpowered the salad. Both my husband and I ordered the Filet Mignon and my husband seemed happy with his but mine was bland and didn't have much flavor. When I have had steak at Ruth's Chris in the past, the saute in the butter left a delicious crust and this steak almost seemed like it had avoided the entire pan seared process altogether. The mashed potatoes were a little dry and the roasted asparagus was slightly overcooked and the tough ends weren't even taken off.

I will commend the service of the staff. My husband and I were celebrating a belated anniversary and we were brought a champagne toast and our server and any other staff that brought out food wished us a happy anniversary. Our empty plates and glasses were removed quickly once empty and the staff was very attentive.

As for ambiance, the restaurant wasn't too loud which allowed us to talk but wasn't so quiet that we felt we needed to whisper. The decor felt a little outdated and beat up but overall it was comfortable.

In general, Ruth's Chris won't be my first choice when looking for a steakhouse in town. There are many options to compete with and for the money that we are spending, the meal should be outstanding.

Been here before for happy hour but this was the first time for full service dinner. Went for my birthday and there was birthday confetti on the table and every worker made a point to wish me a happy birthday. Our server was knowledgeable, warm and helpful. Food was delicious. Definitely recommended.

 (Seattle)·Dined on October 15, 2017

We had a party of 6 (3 couples) sitting at a very awkward table with 3 to a side that made it very difficult to converse. The seats weren't individual chairs but instead booth-style seats that couldn't be moved. We were also right next to the kitchen, so that along with the noise in the dining room, we were really struggling with holding a conversation. It would have been better if we were at a regular circular table with normal dining chairs. Other than that, the food was spectacular. Three of us had the special salmon that wasn't even on the menu or the listed specials -- it was cooked to perfection.

We went to Ruth's Chris for a late lunch before boarding a flight. It was consistently good. They have this sort of tasting / fix price menu called Chris' Classics and it's a good deal considering all that you're getting. We both ordered the filets and they were done perfectly. Also the selection of Seattle wines is very good (I recommend the Cow Catcher Red Blend ). Service as always was great.

I"m a regular customer, or more correctly a diner, at the Ruth's in Seattle WA, Austin TX, Fort Worth TX, and Boise ID. Why? Because I think the beef is unrivaled by any other of the other steakhouses. In addition, the ambiance is always just right for a relaxed evening of quiet dining with friends, family, or business associates.

I've been to Ruth Chris in Boston, Scottsdale, Chapel Hill and the bone in Ribeye's have always been excellent. Everyone at our table stated their steaks were overdone, dry, and not the quality that we are used to at Ruth Chris. Hopefully, this is a "one off'.

Extensive wine list and the delightful wait staff are well informed with pairing the best wine with each meal. The hand crafted cocktails are excellent.

Service level and friendliness changed once the waiter realized that we were not going to order alcoholic drinks or starters. Also, the prices have gone up substantially now that Seattle has passed the $15 minimum wage. They should let customers know that at least part of a normal tip expectation is now included in the price of the meal. A 20% tip on top of a $15 minimum wage is far too much for the quality of service rendered.

- ordered a bottle of wine and it came after eating all appetizers. The waiter said "I couldn't hear you."
- my mom ordered ribeye, but she was served fillet that my dad ordered.

I was extremely disappointed with my experience at Ruth's Chris in Seattle. I had previously visited Ruth's chris in Denver and the experience was so great that I was really looking forward to going to a different location. My husband and i both ordered a ribeye steak with anticipation. Both of our pieces were rough and definitely not worth 52$ a piece. The calamari we ordered was also very average. Most Ruth's Chris don't serve the calamari deep fried but here for some reason it was. It was again, poorly cooked. The service was also very average. The server rarely visited our table. All in all, the experience was very disappointing for a 250$ meal. I wish we had gone some where for this date night.

The waiter was awful!! Only asked three of the four of us if we wanted drinks!! How Rude!! Asked us if we wanted more bread and then assumed we did not by not letting us answer! Got our salads all mixed up!! The steaks were good. The $200 worth of Lobster was way undercooked!! Shiney and slimey!! And no flavor at all!! I've never had lobster served in such a way before, it was horrible!!
We were there for. Birthday celebration, and once again the waiter asked if we wanted desert and then did not let us answer. Assumed we didn't even want the complimentary BD desert!! Never going back!! I don't mind paying big bucks if you get top notch service and food!! Not here!!

First time at Ruth's Chris, and aside from exemplary service, it was disappointing. It took a very long time for our entrees to arrive, and when they did get there, the steaks were overcooked. We were too hungry by then to send them back to the kitchen, but for the price we paid, we should have had perfectly cooked meat.

We wanted to have a really good steak and didn't know where to get one in Seattle that wasn't a chain. We've been to Ruth's Chris around the country many times and have enjoyed it, but wanted some local atmosphere. Because we didn't want to chance a bad meal at a local place, we opted for what we knew at Ruth's Chris. We were not disappointed. The wonderful evening started with the hostess, who was very personable. Then our waiter, Antony, was such a nice waiter and a delight to chat with. The filets we had were cooked as we ordered, to perfection. Water glasses were never left empty. Any dietary restrictions were remembered and was applied to all the courses. Antony made the dinner such a wonderful experience and the evening a joy. I can't rave about the dinner at Ruth's Chris enough.
