Ruth's Chris is our go to restaurant in Seattle. We normally stay in Seattle on Saturday Nights for Seahawks home games and have dinner at Ruth's Chris. COVID cost us the in person experience at the game but not a nice dinner. The steaks were wonderful as always. There is something with the aging process and preparation at Ruth's that makes the steaks consistently the best.

The server was stand-offish. He was very disengage. He wasn’t inviting or welcoming. He was cold. The topping on the sweet potato soufflé wasn’t properly prepared. It was raw sugar left on top. The creme brûlée was ice-cold. The topping was cold. It should have been warm sugar. The silverware was dirty. It literally had food leftovers stuck on them. I asked for hot water and didn’t get it. I asked for a top to my bottled water. The server wouldn’t even put plastic wrap on it. He was horrible. I left an $80 tip, and the food was nearly $400, because my children and I want to return and hopefully have a better experience with another server. I definitely don’t want Joel ever again. I even tried positive re-enforcements. I don’t want to have to say that Joel was horrible, but if we go back and he’s our server, we will leave.

Casual elegance can be found at Ruth's Chris. The dining experience is enhanced by the excellent service. High quality entrees and sides make this an option for both meat lovers as well as vegetarians who want to have good conversation with good food. You can rely on the consistency of the experience when dining at any Ruth's Chris location.

I took my 4 ½ year old granddaughter to her first Broadway play at the Paramount. I wanted to be sure her experience was memorable, so I made reservations for five of us at Ruth Chris. I’ve always had great service there, but this time was different. We told them we were off to the show, so speed was important. We didn’t see our sever again for 45 minutes! We were stuck in the corner nearest the kitchen and server station. Plus they were vacuuming during business hours!! Who does that? When our meals finally arrived, they still had forgotten our starters NO soup or salads. The runner said he would check into it. We had to scarf down our lovely meals. Yes, they were good, but took way to long and only partially there. The manager took two alcoholic beverages off our ticket and we told them not to bother with the salads, but it was a disappointment to say the least. I will try somewhere else next time.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
