We went here for birthday treat whilst in DC. it was recommended by our hotel, and great choice. Menu was varied, lovely steaks as you would expect and nice quite relaxed atmosphere. Perfect tables for romantic meal. Quite pricey, but worth the extra.

We arrived late evening at Ruth's Chris without reservation. We got fast seated. The service was good and friendly. The main attraction at Ruth's Chris is the food. Had a crab cake as starter which was delicious. The bread served was warm and lofty - Very good - be careful to not fill you up with the bread ;-) As... More

We made our reservation at Ruth's Chris 10 mins. before we arrived. We told them that it was our anniversary. We were in a huge rush, because we had to be at Kennedy Center in about 70 mins. That only have us about 55 mins to eat. The Hostess lead us to the table that was decorated and had a... More

We had never been to this restaurant before, but was recommended by different folks around the area. We LOVED everything. The steaks were so tender and juicy. Salads were fresh and crisp...mushrooms were absolutely divine. The service was impeccable. We all were so pleased with our evening.

Happy hour food was available at budget prices--~ $8 for a sandwich. Service was very attentive. We sat in a booth with velvet upholstery. Steak is so NOT my choice but went with a colleague who selected this restaurant and there were a few -- slim-- non meat items on the menu. Atmosphere was very pleasant and amenable to good... More

We always look forward to dinner at Ruth's Chris. This evening our dinner was great! The steaks are really second to none! Wish they would reinforce their dress code.

Made a reservation through Open Table requesting a table 'off the beaten path' as this was a special occasion dinner (first date). Arrived early for the reservation and the very nice host gave me the option of waiting at the table or the bar; I chose the latter (needed a nerve calming pre-date libation). I confirmed w/ host about my... More

Took a friend to dinner for his birthday at the Famed Ruth Chris in DC. The food was fair, and only fair. No real special seasonings, no glitz, just a steak...Thats it. We both had steak. We shared the mash potatoes, which taste to me like they came right out of the box.... Betty Crocker's box? Again, nothing special, no... More

With many restaurant choices in DC, Ruth's Chris has one of the better reputations. The meal did not disappoint! Ten of us were ushered to a private room upstairs. We had a personal server for the evening. We asked for 6 of their best apps and drinks all around to start. Every dish was perfect! For dinner we had a... More

Fantastic food, but pricey. We ate here because it was a special occasion. We came to DC to get married and took friends and family for a nice dinner. Service was wonderful, and the steak was perfection.
