This place is always to good staple! They have a good reputation and always seem to come through with great service, great food and great view to boot! I only rate them a 4 star because I believe they could be better for what they charge, if it was less expensive I would give them 5 stars. This is a... More

I don’t agree with the reviewer who said Ruth Chris is a middle of the road steakhouse. True the steaks and for that matter all menu items are expensive, but you get what you pay for, and at Ruth Chris what you normally get is excellent steaks and excellent service. My dinner with business colleagues at this beautiful and elegant... More

I love Ruth Chris restaurants. The food is always wonderful (except one time in Houston during Mother's Day when they let their standards drop). The only negative I would say about this Ruth's Chris is the decor. It had a bit of a cafe feel about it and not the plush decor you would hope for at such a good... More

Flew in from Germany for business and visited our daughter for a spontaneous dinner out. Fantastic dinner - wonderful service - great views! Wine list is extensive and waiter (Jack) was very knowledgeable and helpful. We split a Caesar salad and each ordered their 12/16 oz Rib-eye steaks with some garlic mashed potatoes - extremely tasty! Finished off the dinner... More

I was invited to this steak house for a business dinner, I was definitely impressed by the quality of the food. I've travelled so many places and restaurants, I must say that wat I had at this place is maybe the best ribeye steak in the last 5 years.

Large square table allowed our group of 20 to interact. Staff were attentive with food and wine, yet not overbearing. We had shared appetizers, and they were lovely - too numerous to mention. I shared a filet platter - 2 x 6 oz filets - which was plenty - they plated each of us separately!

Earlier tonight (Wednesday October 21) was our 2nd time here. Even when it's raining, we love the view high above Reagan National Airport. Our service has been great both times, as well as our happy hour food and drinks. Both ladies at the next table ordered steaks, and it looked so good. Even if we didn't see them, we were... More

Not a fan of Ruth's Chris since it is just middle of the road chain of steak houses. Much better quality steak can be had elsewhere at better prices. Not going to complain about a baked potato costing $8 since it is what is expected in a place like this. The real treat of this restaurant is the view of... More

I cannot say enough how awesome it was. Nathan was our server and he was awesome, too. The wine selection was amazing. The food in this restaurant is the only one worth the amount of money you are going to spend. Every course was pure happiness. The moon was full over Reagan Airport and that was just amazing, too.
