Sometimes this great steak house misses

This has always been my favorite "go-to" restaurant for steak--until this last time. I always order Ribeye since I like the fatty flavor and this restaurant has always prepared it well--util this time. My steak was not as juicy, tender, and flavorful as in the past. In fact, when I mentioned my... read more

Fantastic steak dinner. Its always on the higher price end but for fine dining, excellent service, and mouth watering food. Great view as well....you watch planes take off and land in the distance. But man, the steak....always so good. If I was rich I'd go there every night.

Great views and excellent foot combined with friendly service and a wine list to match. What's not to enjoy. It's a place that will leave you satisfied.

The food is great, without question, but the staff here needs to be re-trained. I saw so many servers casually chit chatting at the hostess stand when they should have been paying attention to customers. I saw a GM running around (how did he not see the servers...?) but no one asked how my meal was while I was eating.... More

We've been to this Ruth's Chris location many times. It's a favorite. We love the chopped salad, Ahi tuna and crabtini appetizers. My favorite steak is the filet- always cooked perfectly to temperature. If you're going to have dessert you can't beat the cheesecake which is big enough to share. We always sit in the bar area. Planes, trains, boats... More

The steakhouse is located on the 11th floor of a high-rise. The views of Washington DC and surrounding area are quite beautiful. There's plenty of room for private parties and beautiful large glass windows enhance the dining experience. Although the servers were all very friendly the service was slow and we needed to ask for water refills. The food was... More

Somewhat disappointed We have been to Ruth's Chris in Arlington many times over the past 20 years. This past Saturday, we brought some guests who have never been but who has heard us brag about Ruth's Chris many times. We waited for a window seat, which was perfect. The wait service was rather slow, not very attentive. As a matter... More

I LOVE Ruth's Chris's Steakhouse. I was really looking forward to our dining experience. Our waiter was pretty much absent. My husband is a very generous tipper (25+%) and refused to give the guy more than15%. His reasoning for this tip was to compensate the rest of the team who took care of us and, upon request, actually got the... More

Perhaps we have never been seated on the side of the restaurant with the bar before - I certainly had never noticed the television. The view from this restaurant is simply spectacular - however, the reflection of the television in the window was a spoiler for me. Otherwise, our lovely little table for two in the corner was perfect. My... More
