Quality of food and service was great. We were placed at a nice table but the overall lighting required us to use the light from our cell phones to be able to read the menu. The Petite Ribeye was juicy and tender. The sides were enough to share for 2 people. Nice dining experience.

My wife and I thought the filet’s lacked flavor!! Plus the cut of filet varied between the both of us.This is amazing considering all the emphasis placed on their beef. Our shrimp was the same no flavor. The best part of our meal was the salad and desert. We were disappointed to say the least and we will goes elsewhere in town to have a good steak meal.

I meet my friends at Ruth's Chris for steaks every year. We have a good meal, we know what we will get and we have a good time. It is expensive but not excessive. Nice but not uncomfortable. I have eaten at Ruth's Chris in Singapore, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Taipei, downtown Seattle and Beverly Hills. Always good. Jakarta is the weakest...

Ruth's Chris is one of our favorites, we enjoy going to the Bellevue location for both special occasions and when we visit this shopping mall at other times as well. I like the new Pris Fixe option on the lunch menu.

Best friend introduced my wife and I to his (long lost) newly reconnected high school sweetheart. Remarkable story of two people that should have spent their lives together, but the Vietnam War and others circumstances separated them for more 50 years. Then came Facebook and they reconnected.

We love Ruth’s Chris. Our waiter Trevor was terrific and most professional. The reason I did not give our “overall” experience 5-STARS was due the very loud patrons that were improperly dressed for a fine dining steak house. Everyone is afraid to enforce a dress code. Blue jeans, T-shirts, puffer attire is totally inappropriate. I felt like we were dining at the “Cheese Cake Factory”. We spent over $400 for 4 people. Might need to rethink Ruth’s Chris’s Bellevue location for future.

My son was in town over Christmas and I took him to Ruth's Chris for a treat before he went back home. It was great from start to finish. The staff was attentive and polite but not overbearing. We both had the 16 oz rib-eye, it was seared and cooked to perfection. The dining room ambiance is very nice, quiet and relaxing for good conversation. Highly recommend Ruth's Chris!

The dinner was wonderful and the service was impeccable. Our ribeye/lobster tails were cooked to perfection and the lobster macaroni & cheese was the best I have ever had. Jason (our server) allowed my wife and I to relax and talk (it was her birthday) and made some great suggestions when we had questions...he was the best server we have ever had! We will be back and highly recommend this venue for a great meal/experience!

Took the family out on Christmas Day for dinner instead of cooking at home. The service was excellent, our server Matt was on point! The food was delicious and overall just a wonderful experience. I’ve been to Ruth’s Chris several times and I have yet to be disappointed. Thanks Ruth’s Chris Bellevue.

I went for Christmas - late lunch. It took 1.5 hours to get my food. When it showed up, the salmon was frozen on the inside so I had to send it back. The steak my parents received had no flavor and over cooked. It was a very bad experience that day and not cheap.

I understand it’s the holidays, but Ruth’s Chris seemed poorly organized for Christmas Eve and mismanaged the timing for everyone’s reservations. The hostess was openly overwhelmed and didn’t communicate with everyone the time frames of our delays. It wasn’t until an hour later we finally sat down for our reservation. The appetizers and sides were nice and the servers were very kind, but my party of 6 ordered 2 ribeyes and 2 filet mignons and all 4 were very poorly done and not how we requested them at all. I was the only one who sent mine back because the wait was very long for all 4 to be redone, and I had my 4 year old and 1 year old with me. When mine was redone it was better, but still unevenly cooked and tough at the ends when I requested medium rare. It was already past 1030pm when we were hoping to be done by 9-9:30, so by the time I received my steak we had to pack everything and leave. To be completely honest, I was very embarrassed to expose my visiting in-laws to this as their Christmas Eve dinner, and my poor 4 year old wasn’t feeling well when we first arrived, and the wait and meal took so long his medication wore off mid-meal. I don’t think I will ever reserve at this location for the holidays ever again.

My party of seven was seated at a table that would have been cramped for six people in a side room that had zero ambiance. It looked like a corporate meeting room. There was only one server working the room and, while she did as well as could be expected, she was clearly overworked. The food was good but at this price point the ambiance and service are far superior at Daniel's, The Met and the Capital Grille.

We've been to this Ruth's Chris Steakhouse many times and this was the first time we've had a bad experience. Our waiter was excellent but for some reason (maybe because it was Christmas Eve?) the service was exceedingly slow. It took quite a while to get our salads and then we waited almost an hour for our entrees to arrive. Our waiter kept checking with the kitchen, and each time he would tell us that they've assured him it would be just a few more minutes. He did offer me a second glass of wine on the house while we were waiting, which was nice. When the entrees finally arrived they were way overcooked. My husband ordered his steak medium rare and it was more than medium. I ordered mine medium and it was well done. He offered to take them back and have new ones prepared but we didn't want to wait another hour, so he offered to take them off the bill, which was also very nice (and appropriate). When you're spending more than $50 per steak you should get them the way you ordered them! To top it off the busgirl poured water all over the table - twice! - while refilling our glasses. All in all, not their best effort (aside from our great waiter). Fortunately we've been there many times so we're willing to give them another try.

This was our first time eating at Ruths Chris in Bellevue. We have eaten at Ruths Chris in Phoenix and Scottsdale many times and have loved the food. Although the service was excellent when we ate in the Bellevue location last week, the food was poor. My fish tasted strong and old. My husbands steak was ordinary. The chop salad was warm and had very little flavor. The asparagus was overcooked and soggy and the hollandaise sauce was cold and stiff. Even the potatoes were rough - they were swimming in oil. We were really disappointed with our meal and wont be returning to the Bellevue location. On the brighter side, the creme brulee was delicious.

Our server was excellent; attentive, friendly and not intrusive. I mentioned we wanted to get out in time for the snowflake lane; he came to the table to remind us of the time. Our 4 y/o and 6 y/o grandchildren appreciated getting there on time! It is our family tradition to have our meal at Ruth Chris; followed by Snoflake Lane for our DIL’s BD. We were not disappointed!

Hadn't been here in ages outside of wine tasting dinners. The main dining room is huge and packed. Not surprisingly the vibe was like that of a high school gymnasium. Good food and service, but the vibe and crowd does not match the price tag. Would prefer a smaller, local alternative over this corporate manufacturing line.

This is the second year in a row trying Ruth's Chris for Thanksgiving. They were again not prepared. Food was cold (mashed potato and creamed spinach), the plate was barely hot with my filet. Wait staff was bussing tables on the floor, scraping food into buckets while we were still eating. This is my favorite place for a steak, we will never go back on a holiday. Waste of money.
