Ruth's is defiantly great, albeit a bit pricey and a long way from me. I truly enjoy The Rainier Bar and Grill in Enumclaw for a good steak, burgers, salads and a home town type atmosphere. Don't even have to dress up.
+1 for Daniel's Broiler. They seem to be more consistent than the Met. Also the last time I was at the Met the valet door dinged my car and then said it was there already. No more reason to go there anymore.
