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.

We arrived for our reservation on time but waited half an hour for seating and a further 10 minutes to be served by our waiter. We were promised complimentary beverages for the delay in seating but never received it. Furthermore, the food was just acceptable and not delightful

Absolutely the worst experience. We showed up on time for 5:30pm thanksgiving dinner reservation and got seated 45 minutes late. There was no apology given or expressed to us at any point of time. Things got worse when our waiter didn’t bring the drinks we ordered at all. The same waiter also took orders from the guests next to us who arrived later than we did. Not coming back here. This place is a joke for the kind of money they charge.

Overpriced meal with poor service.
Waited over 20 minutes standing in front of the 2 hosts before anyone even acknowledged me.
We have asked for some sparkling cider and was offered some terribly expensive French stuff for 5-6 times what a bottle should have been.
I will never go back to Ruth Chris in Seattle when I can get twice the meal with exponentially better service and value in any other town.

I'd recommend Ruth's Chris to a friend because the food is always very good. The service not so much. We arrived early for our reservation and Kobe was happy to seat us as the restaurant hadn't begun to fill up. Our waiter Ryan was personable but not at the top of his game. Ordered drinks had to be reminded. Not especially attentive. Everyone has an off night. Too bad it happened on our visit.

We went to celebrate a birthday and loved the special touches such as confetti on the table, birthday card and complimentary birthday dessert. The food was amazing per usual however the service was surprisingly subpar. Not the Ruth Chris service we have come to expect. We will definitely be back, however, as a majority of time it is on point. For whatever reason just not tonight. Also cannot wait for their renovations to be done! Need to see the finished project, especially that glass wine wall!!

Went for dinner one Tuesday during the last few days of restaurant week. Was only given standard menu. Had to ask for restaurant week menu. Then was given restaurant week's lunch menu. Then when told we were given the restaurant week lunch menu, the wait staff were confused and had to ask someone more senior, who then came to table to tell us there was no dinner menu for restaurant week. Once we showed him the dinner menu on restaurant week website he then went to manager who provided the paper version of the restaurant week dinner menu.... Hesitatingly himself I might add. All very strange for sure. Regardless, the 6 oz filet mignon was very good, even if there was 1/4 lb of melted butter on it. Lol.

Excellent value for Seattle Restaurant week. Hostess was somewhat abrasive. Also, they tried to seat us (and many other diners) at the worst table in the house(back of restaurant near kitchen and loud bussing area) although many other free tables existed. Also, had to request Restaurant Week menu numerous times. Food was great, though!

I'd have given them a 5 but though I signed in at the front desk, was seated at our table , I was "reported" to Open Table as not showing up for my reservation! It was irritating and I don't know if it was resolved. Also, it appears that the place is under construction so the atmosphere wasn't as nice as I'd expected but food and service were excellent.

Reservations made two weeks ago and upon arriving, there was no coat check, the steward checking us in said he’d have to have our table bused and it would be a few minutes later. Then another steward took us to an obscure area of the restaurant away from any other patrons, where we felt ostracized from the other patrons. We said we wanted to be seated in the main part of the restaurant and waited for him to bring us to another table. He seated two other couples and ignored us. I then went back to the check in area and was still ignored by the steward. I called him out on him ignoring our request as well as not acknowledging us and he became very argumentative and said you can just talk to the manager and my reply was simply, go and get him. In the meantime another steward seated us within the main restaurant and the other steward never was seen again. The manager did however come up and I informed him about our party of four had been treated very rudely. I told management that I felt given that we had standing reservations and not a walk in, that we had been put off. Our waiter was excellent, the food was good. This location is going through renovations and there are parts of it should have had more attention to detail. For examples, the toilet paper in the bathroom stalls were sitting on the dirty floor.Just as a side note, we were not comped anything for the rudeness of the steward.

The restaurant was in disarray due to ongoing construction. Our waiter was slow in taking our order and we had to request water and bread from another waiter who graciously stepped in. Our steaks were overdone. We ordered two desserts but after waiting for nearly twenty minutes, we had to cancel in order to make our night at the theater. I have eaten at this restaurant many times at this and their prior Seattle location but never again. They have lost a long term customer.

The server was a nice guy but our dinner showed up on top of our salads, our bottle of wine showed up halfway through dinner and we didn't have confidence that if we ordered desert it would make it in time for us to get to our show. A little disappointing since it was a birthday celebration. Who knew that 2 1/2 hours was not enough time to have dinner before a show. I felt that we were forgotten.

This was our first time at Ruth’s Chris and we were really looking forward to it. Unfortunately this restaurant is in the middle of improvements, and it affected our meal. Lights couldn’t be dimmed and we felt like we were eating under extreme spotlights, several menu items and beverage options were not available and it just wasn’t the experience I have heard these restaurants to be. It’s a shame because we had others with us and it really didn’t impress any of our group. :(
The previous night, we wanted a glass of wine to take to our room to enjoy the sunset - we were told they were not a part of the hotel, and therefore we had to buy a bottle versus a glass - seemed self-serving and very inconvenient since this is supposed to be the “hotel bar”.

We tried the restaurant for restaurant week. The salads were nice, but the filet was only average-not worth it at regular prices. Stuffed chicken was much better. Service was poor even though not busy. Had to ask for water glasses refill, and they also forgot once. Knew we had symphony tickets but had to press to get desserts and bill processed.

Very very noisy because of loud folks next to us. Food quality good and service as well once you ordered. This is SEATTLE restaurant week and you needed to ask for the menu. It wasn’t included with the regular menu which bothered me since folks from out of town would not be aware. Lastly they really don’t enforce the dress code.

Our experience was good. The only downsize was that we were too close to the Kitchen's Grill, and my wife's allergies from all the smoke kicked into high gear causing undue comfortableness. Thank You for the experience to have eaten at this renown restaurant, even though it was being under construction.

We were warmly greeted and promptly seated. The food did not match the service. My partner and I ordered the tomahawk ribeye for two. Along with the 40oz bone-in ribeye, the meal came with two salads, two sides (mash potatoes, and cheesy spinach) and a chocolate dessert. We ordered the steak to be cooked medium-rare. The ribeye was tough (almost chewy). We watched one of our servers struggle to cut the meat before serving it to us. Hoping the mash potatoes, and spinach were at least tasty, we soon discovered the sides were also unenjoyable as they were at room temp or cooler.

Everything was wonderful, our waitperson Caitlin, was friendly and knowledgeable.
We did have to wait a rather long time for our drinks, but were compensated for them. (We did not ask to be)
I had steak and lobster, and the steak was done so beautifully, cut just like butter.
My aunt had the stuffed chicken and said it was cooked so well, very tender.
All in all, great time and would definitely return.
