Reign in your staff!

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... read 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

We went as a family dinner for my wife's birthday. The food was excellent, but the service was well below what I expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Some examples: 1) No one checked coats, so everyone had their coats on the back of the chair. Felt like McDonald's. 2) Service was slow and not very attentive. 3) The... More

Very good food but expensive. I don't mind paying for a good meal but honestly - to pay for a steak and pay for each additional item. The table we sat at was very nice. Next to a window looking over the river and plains taking off and landing. It was very poorly lit and I felt for anyone with... More

The food was amazing. No complaints about it at all, the service however left a lot to be desired. Our appetizers arrived before our drinks. My wine arrived before my husband's juice which was delivered after our entrees. We had two different people waiting on us and between the two of them nothing was done right. We had to ask... More
