A great dining experience

My husband and I had dinner her with friends for a special dinner. I made reservations for 6:30 pm on Sunday evening but the reservations weren't needed. The place was practically empty. We were promptly seated with an amazing view from the 11th floor overlooking the airport and the DC skyline. The... read more

I was very underwhelmed by this Ruth's Chris Steak House. I have eaten in 3-4 others that were excellent, but I was very disappointed with the service at this one. We were a party of seven on a Monday night and it did not seem that busy. The waiter did not take a drink order for an unusually long time.... More

My first time at one of these places. We had a private room for a family get together after a funeral at Arlington National C. We had good service and the food was excellent. I think perhaps a little over priced for my part. I doubt I would ever go to one again, but glad I can say I have... More

We love coming to Ruth's Chris for special occasions. We recently celebrated an anniversary here. This was probably our 8th visit. The service was great and the food was exceptional. Ask for Eduardo! They placed "Happy anniversary" confetti on our table which was a nice touch! Make a reservation and request a window seat because the view is unbelievable. The... More

We we there for our daughters 50th Birthday Celebration. This was the Crystal City location in Virginia and We found the view terrific and everything else sub par. They were out of the selection that most of us ordered. Poor Service. The restaurant was on the 11th floor and the area outside the elevator on the 11th floor was littered... More

We were guided first to a window seat and had a good chat with the manager. The view is great. You could oversee capital hill and airport. Someone concludes a good D.C. trip. both my wife's steak and my lamb were excellent, by our stands, quite good. I come having a pre-side mind tipping +25% for what I see initially... More

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 disappointment to the waiter, I said "This I... 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.
