Seattle >Ruth's Chris Steak House
BEST STEAK I'VE HAD IN YEARS. Took my fiance here for his birthday and we both loved it. Our waitress was attentive and very nice. She emphasized on how they cook their steak and gave us great suggestions on what kind of sides goes with our choices. The price was a little steep but well worth the quality of steak and the service they provide. Would definitely take my parents here from Texas and trust me, they know steak!
Sweeping spaces, magnificent modern art and cozy booths create an appropriate setting for modern Northwest meals..
The spacious multilevel bar and restaurant flows together gracefully as bubble-themed glass art cascades down the walls. Deep, muted colors, snug booths and high ceilings combine elegance and comfort. Quiet solo diners are common, but boisterous larger groups are standard during conventions. Lunch servers are a casual bunch, but dinner pulls out the stops--no matter how many full tables, there's enough staff to keep up with the rush.
A seasonal menu highlights local ingredients combined for intense contrasts of texture and flavor. Chunky beets and Maytag blue cheese hits the right sweet-salty note; continue on to either a tender Kobe steak with tangy balsamic reduction or a standard slab of ahi, accompanied by roasted peppers stuffed with sweet, buttery crab. Desserts are more spicy than sweet, and include a smooth Cream of Wheat cake with Ceylon cinnamon ice cream and a crepe-wrapped rice pudding.
Gets worse every time!.
First, service was good but only until after we ordered. After that, we never saw our waiter again until he dropped the bill off. It took over 45 minutes to get drink refills. And that's with placing the order with the busser. It was not even busy, we went on a Thursday night.
I ordered my steak medium. I got a black piece of charcoal that tasted, just like charcoal. I overheard two other tables complaining to the manager and one even sent their food back, so I know it was'nt just us.
Too pricey for the bad food and service, seems all they care about is taking your order, then thats it! The manager offered us nothing and asked us to call him on our next visit. I dont think I will return. Too many other chioces out there like El Goucho and Daniels Broiler.
Do Not Recommend -
Fantastic!. After a disappointing time in the Bellevue Ruths, we decided to give the Seattle location a try on our anniversary. WOO!! It was so good! The lobster bisque was magnificant, the waitstaff was friendly as were all the staff, my portabello mushrooms were amazing and the drinks were fantastic. For all this, the bill was easy on the eyes, and it was nice to realize that a bowl of that awesome lobster bisque and a salad was priced well enough to enjoy it for lunch now and again. Two thumbs up on this place for sure!
Good Meat but Pricey.
Steak comes out sizzling (literally). I had the large filet and ate %100 of the fine piece of prime grade beef. Not the smallest amount of gristle could be found.
As for sides, the creamed spinach was good. The fries were nothing special, about the same as you would find at Red Robin. We ordered a lobster on the side that was TEENY and way overpriced.
Dessert was just OK. Cheesecake and banana cream pie were the choices. A half notch above a gourmet grocery store's offerings.
WOW!!. Another fantastic addition to the downtown Seattle restaurant scene. Food is excellent, drinks are some of the best in town in my opinion. Great atmosphere. Great for happy hour. Great bar, friendly staff.
Not So Veggie Friendly Anymore. My husband and I used to like to eat at 727 because we both could have a delicious, gourmet meal (he being a carnivore and me being a vegetarian). I am disappointed that they have taken the vegetarian tasting menu off the menu. The kitchen wasn't flexible (most restaurants will bend over backwards to create something special) and my request for something vegetarian was largely ignored. I ended up having to order from the bar menu, while my husband had the Kobe beef (which he said was fantastic). Pizza and Saint Joseph wine. Not the best combo. I will say that the sommelier was fantastic and our waiter was truly apologetic. It's a bummer that we won't be back, because we really used to like the joint!
No always consistent. My wife and I have eaten at more than 20 Ruth's Chris locations and the Seattle location is still one of our favorites. Our concern is that as the chain has grown, quality has steadily declined. Steaks and sides - once flawless and delicious to the point of tears - are now a crapshoot with spotty quality and taste. My last rib eye was just "OK" (although my wife's petite fillet was perfect). Sides are generally quite good. But the prices. Especially as to sides and ANYTHING to drink (whether alcoholic or not) the prices are frankly obscene and shameful. As the years have passed, Seattle has developed local options to Ruth's Chris that may provide better dining if not better value. IOHO.
Disagree. Ruth's is a fabulous steakhouse. Sure the atmosphere isn't the best, but is warm, cozy and inviting. The people there are the best, not stuck up like at some other places. And the steak! Truly the best cuts of meat in town, and cooked exactally how you like it. Everytime. Ruth's is PRIME.
great steaks. I have used this facility many times and there service is the best in Seattle. The resturant is also quite, and really has a elagant casual feel. Validited parking is a plus, not like other Seattle resturants.
