Obviously great steaks

The dark ambience of the mahogany hides the sizzling olfactory heaven. Melt in you mouth marbled boeuf, matched a top vino from the region. Top spot

Can't imagine why anyone would put butter on a steak. If it's good enough to eat, it has it's own marbled "fat." One doesn't need more. Years ago I thought it wasn't bad as most places go, but now I see no reason to eat there. Better steaks can be found most anywhere.

We enjoyed cocktails, crudites and foccia at the bar before our meal. We ate delicious filet mignon with seferal side dishes and an awesome dessert.

Meeting up with friends and it was Restaurant Week. Have been to other Ruth's Chris before. Steaks are always cooked to perfection. Tender and tasty. Our server, Sarah, was attentive along with all other wait staff. Never disappointed.

Saw a high rating for this well-known commercial chain on the Zagat's site which prompted a visit. Service was adequate - but only that. OK, ok. It's a chain. But considering the prices, one expects so much more! As indicated above, the signature steak was well cooked and reasonably good but hardly exceptional. The vegetables, otoh, were really good.

For special occasions, I usually dine at Ruth Chris in Baltimore at the Pier 5 location. I have dined at a few Ruth Chris locations throughout the U.S. and in Canada; thus, I have come to consistently expect delicious food, nice ambiance, and excellent service. The service at the Bethesda location did not even come close to meeting my expectations.... More

When in the DC area venture out to Bethesda and enjoy the Ruth Chris happy hour. If you are lucky you will be served by Adrian, one of the most professional waiters around and he will guide you in the right direction of ordering. The happy hour menu items are $8.00 including all wines, beers and cocktails. A classic environment... More

Consistent high quality and great beef main dishes; always crowded. Sometimes a little noisy. Have gone there over many years.

Have been here a few times, most recently last night. Service has never been fabulous but yesterday was really sub par. One server and ALL of the busboys were pretty curt , no smiles, no " you're welcome" when thanked, empty plates sat for too long. Another server who was quite pleasant happened to " forget" to include a $100... More

For years we've saved dinners at Ruth's Chris for very special occasions, so looked forward to our meal on the eve of Father's Day 2015. We were disappointed generally. Specifically, We waited a good while for any waiter to approach. Ordered onion rings and calamari for appetizers to enjoy with our cocktails. They took so long to arrive we suspect... More
