We had a great late night dining experience at Ruth’s Chris on Valentine’s Day. We anticipated being very late after our flights into Seattle from Boise and Spokane, so the 10 o’clock reservation worked out perfect for us. Tim was a great waiter and certainly did a good job of spacing our meal and wine selection out for us.

As usual we loved Ruths in Seattle! We came here for Valentine’s Day and the service was decent for such a busy night, we always get the Ruths Classic and it never disappoints with the three course meal that it comes with!

Note this is on Valentines 2020. Reservations for everyone was behind 30 minutes; we had reservations at 8:30 PM and weren’t seated until 8:55 PM. Service was very polite, but they staff was handling a lot of people due to the occasion so they weren’t as prompt as desired. Been to many other steakhouses if this level and this one had the basic offerings and their flavors were not on par as others.

Everything was great, but I did make my reservation months in advance and we were 30 minutes delayed in our seating so we had to rush our dinner so we could get to the Paramont on time. We weren’t able to have appetizers, salad, or dessert. We only had time for our food, made dinner, which was absolutely fabulous, but it was extremely stressful because we were so rushed on time.

Wonderful dinner! Food was outstanding. It was my birthday, so the confetti on the table was a nice touch and the free dessert was awesome. Our waiter Zach was phenomenal. Highly recommend and will definitely go back next time I'm in Seattle.

My wife and I went there for our 21st wedding anniversary. They had a special on the chef’s recommendation menu that paired two lobster tails with a filet. Awesome as always. The food was good but what brings us back there is the staff and their level of customer service. Professional and courteous, just a great group of people from the hostess to the wait staff.

Been to a few Ruth Chris steakhouses in the past and this one was disappointing. Lights were bright. Service was ok but it took forever to get a order in. Not blaming the server. He was great but it seemed as if all the servers had to many tables. Steak we ok. It kinda felt like average overpriced restaurant.

Ruth’s Chris is always good however, this location had the lights turned up so bright it was like a doctor’s office 🙄. Our server wasn’t the greatest either.

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.
