Best Steak in Seattle bar-none – The steaks are awesome,the ambiance wonderful and the service phenomenal ! Try the B.B.Q. shrimp Yummm!
Great Food, Not for Winos – The food was awesome as it is at every Ruth's Chris I've been to. We had the Happy Hour specials of Seared Tuna and the prime rib sliders. WHOA! Those sliders were amazing and only $5 for 2...that makes a whole meal for me!
On the flip side, the wines by the glass list is ridiculously short and boring. My husband doesn't drink wine so I'm not going to order an entire bottle just for me. That meant I got the usual wine. And, they have cheap wine glasses. I would expect such an upscale place to have higher end, cut edge glasses.
It's Always Nice – Ruth's Chris Steak House in Seattle is a pretty solid restaurant. It's open from 6:30am to Midnight and serves, breakfast, lunch and dinner and has two happy hours everynight. It is consistantly good and tasty.
Absolutely Wonderful! – My husband and I went here for our anniversary last night (Saturday August 30th at 6:30pm). We had Michael for our waiter and he was outstanding. The entire staff was very nice and friendly as well. The food was wonderfu too and the steaks were done to perfection. It was our anniversary and they had the happy anniversary confetti along with 2 glasses of complimentary champagne to celebrate. We had a really nice time and will definitely go back.
Sophisticated American chain serves up corn-fed USDA prime cuts and New Orleans-style appetizers and sides. – In Short
This offshoot of a popular New Orleans hangout for politicians features decor of dark woods and comfortable booths, with a separate bar scene. Choice cuts of custom-aged beef arrive in sizzling butter on 500-degree plates. The menu also offers chicken, pork and seafood entrees along with Creole appetizers like shrimp remoulade. Family-style sides include gargantuan onion rings, creamed spinach and various styles of potatoes. Traditional homemade desserts like cheesecake and bread pudding conclude the meal.
A step above the rest – Ruth Chris may be a restaurant chain from the South, but with its incredible food, atmosphere, and service you would never know it. Seattle's Ruth Chris is a carnivore haven. Incredible cuts of quality beef, particularly the beef filets. Don't overlook the signature RC dishes, garlic mashed potatoes and cream spinach. yum. Service is top notch, and always willing to be a part of unconventional conversation.
Nothing Special – I really don't understand why so many people like this place. I've eaten at a lot of steakhouses and this is nothing special. Do yourself a favor and try the Metropolitan Grill or Jack's instead.
Over rated – We assumed by the well decorated dining room, booked out seating, and high prices that we were in for a treat. Were we ever wrong. I ordered the portabello mushroom dish. It was blah and unseasoned. It was accompanied with equally blah and over sized portions of asparagus, mashed potatoes, broccoli, button mushrooms, and tomatoes. Three vegies would have been adequate for the dish. My husbands meal was the opposite...his stuffed chicken was really a piece of chicken, and he had to search for some kind of stuffing. He ate off my weeks worth of vegetable serving plate, since the sides were additional$$$. Oh! I almost forgot about the "Ruth" salad. Yes it was cole slaw with french fried onion rings on top. When I go out and spend a $100 on dinner I expect that it taste better then my own mediocre cooking.
Expensive a la carte... and NOT worth the wait – My husband had heard good things about this chain and wanted to try it for our anniversary. I had planned all the other details of our big day but dinner. So his suggestion sounded good and the restaurant was able to get us in within 30 minutes. They tossed some glittery "Happy Anniversary" confetti on our table and seated us right away. They gave us each a glass of champagne on the house for the occasion. We were off to a fine start. Opening the menu we were a little perplexed. A rib-eye was almost $40; and all it came with was a plate, knife and fork. A baked potato was another $7+ and green beans almondine another $7+. We ordered crab stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer. All four of them were tasty (almost $13), real crab; but the mushrooms weren't even "stuffer" size, just plain white caps like you'd use every day at home. The glass of pinot grigio I ordered was huge...but that made the actual amount of pinot grigio look paltry (about 3/4 cup worth) and I don't even know what it cost. Appetizers arrived very quickly. Then we sat, and sat and sat. A table of 3 that arrived after us was served before we were and a table of 6 that arrived after the table of 3 was served and paying their check before our food arrived. My husband's rib eye was okay, nothing special. My stuffed chicken breast ($23+) was well seasoned and tasty on top, bland and dry on the bottom. To add insult to injury, there was a hair on my plate that was not my own. The service was pretty good, until our food was obviously taking too long. At that point our server made himself scarce! Luckily the water server and crumb wiper were very attentive. Un-luckily, we were interrupted so often it made conversation difficult. Needless to say, we did not stay for dessert! We just walked out shaking our heads wondering what all the "rave reviews" had been about.
Disappointed. – I brought some freinds from out of town into Ruths last Saturday and am sorry for it. One of our steaks had to be sent back for under cooking and the Filet Mignon I ordered was undercooked as well. 2 of the side dishes were almost cold. I don't mind paying good money for a great restaurant experience. Ruths though, probably wont be seeing me or our groups in there again. I hear about a resaurant called Jacks in west Seattle I am going look up next or possibly El Goucho.
