Cowboy Ribeye

The dinner and appetizers were great. The steak itself was cooked correctly. The size of the cowboy ribeye was a little disappointing. I would have ordered the filet if I had seen the size of the ribeye before ordering. I would eat here again.

Rainy day, friend with her kids came to take me for dinner. We randomly selected this establishment. It was not so easy to find during the rain but eventually we got there at the 11th floor. Incredible Panoramic view from all restaurant halls. It was surprisingly busy and the food took some time to be prepared. We ordered lamb chop,... More

I have been to Ruth's Chris's all over the world in the past 15 or so years. California, New Orleans, Mexico, can't name them all. It had been a few years though. I wanted to treat myself the night before flying out of DC, found it, booked it. I was seated at a table with a lovely view of the... More

This is definitely the best Ruth's Chris in the DMV area (there are many). The food is excellent, the service is wonderful, and the view of the airport at night from the main dining area and at the top of the building make for an awesome atmosphere.

Our first time to Ruth Chris and was immediately was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. And the cleanliness of the restaurant. Our waiter was patient as we took in all of our choices. The Manhattan I had was nice sized and tasted great. As for the food, all I can say is WOW!!! I think this was... More

I visited this Ruth's Chris location for a private event. Their special room had a beautiful view across the potomac river. This would be a great location for rehearsal dinners or corporate functions. The food, as usual, did not disappoint. Loved the creamed spinach!

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
