Great food, consistent for RC, service mediocre

First impression? Hard to find. It's on a main drag, but don't let the signage fool you. It's not really near where the sign is. You must wander into a nondescript office building where there is very little visible signage ... it's bad enough that the employees headed home from work in the... read more

I have been to 3 different Ruth Chris's and each one holds a history. This one has a spectacular view. Eleven stories up and a view of the night. Airplanes in the distance. Just plain gorgeous. The menu is steaks and fish. My steak, a filet was medium and hot. The potatoes are gooey with cheese. Everything fresh. The lights... More

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to go out somewhere nice for dinner and Ruth's Chris Steak House was recommended. It was located within walking distance from our Hotel so we decided to go. The view was breathtaking from our window seat. Our meals were pricey but very good my only issue was $14.00 for a... More

We recently made an unplanned trip to Ruth's Chris, Arlington, VA after a family event. We found the Restruant on the eleventh floor of a building in Crystal City across from Reagan International Airport. The view is a excellent 180 degree plus view of the airport and surrounding area. Our server was very accommodating and attentive. The food, filets and... More

The only reason this place gets two stars is because of the view. The restaurant is on the 11th floor of an office building that overlooks Ronald Reagan Airport. We had a window table and when we walked in we were awed with the fabulous view and thought we were in for a fabulous dinner. It went down hill from... More

My filet mignon was excellent along with the mushrooms and salad. My moms filet mignon was also excellent. My son ordered the tomahawk steak was a special and new on the menu. It was very fatty and didn't enjoy. Spoke to waiter who sent over manager who was very accommodating . Otherwise everything was good.

This has always been one of my favorite location. I've visited a couple in the are but this is tops! Service can always use a little sprucing up but it's always hit or miss.

Ruth's Chris in Arlington is on the 11th floor of a building overlooking National Airport. So, in addition to a great meal, you can enjoy watching the planes taking off and landing. This was a great thrill for my friend (who loves to fly) as we celebrated his birthday there. They take reservations, but can't guarantee a table next to... More

Every time I go to Ruth's Chris, in whatever city, I am always pleased with both the food and service. It was a last minute thing to have dinner here, but it turns out it was only a half mile from the hotel, an easy walk through a safe neighborhood. Even though I was alone, they didn't stick me in...
