“Not too expensive if you know what to order.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Celebrating a birthday, not mine, we went to Ruth's Chris in Bethesda. First time there for me. What i did do before we went, was to go online to check the menu. To my surprise, I found a nicely priced three course meal. Choose a started, a main and a desert. A la cart would have been quite a lot more. My steak was perfectly done to my medium-rare request. Started with a Manhattan and finished with a walnut cheesecake. Loved it.

“Ruth's is the best steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Yeah, I know this is a hotly debated topic but Ruth's Chris beats all the other steakhouses. Nothing's better than when they bring out that hot sizzling plate and warn you not to touch it and to hold up your napkin to avoid the splatter. And then that first bite, pure heaven. I've been coming here since 1972, have tried all the competition and this is still THE place to come. Our most recent visit was to celebrate our son Andrew's 21st birthday. His girlfriend Mary joined us and it was the first Ruth's experience for both. They absolutely enjoyed it.

“Steak to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

My wife and I went to Ruth's Chris tonight. We had a reservation for 6:00 and were greeted and excorted to our table immediately. The staff was very professional and attentitive without being to obtrusive. We ordered our food and wine which came out with perfect timing. My wife had the tomatoe bisque which was very tasty and I had the lobster bisque which again was very good. Our entrees came out a few minutes after we finished the soup but not to soon. Petite filet for my wife and New York Strip for me. The steak was fantastic, best I have ever had, my wife felt the same. We had the mushrooms and asparagus as the sides both done very well. Neither one of us could finish so we have dinner for tomorrow night. An excellent dining experience with a professional staff and food done to perfection. Get ready to fork over some hard earned cash. Our dinner with two glasses of wine was $157 before the tip! Not an every weekend kind of place to go to but well worth it for that special dinner.

“Why is this restaurant still in business?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Not worth the money at all!!! I could barely read the menu, even with my reading glasses...and I have good eyes! Once I used my phone flashlight I realized why the lights are so low - prices were high and the menu was filthy with stains on the pages.
A steakhouse that can't cook a filet mignon correctly should not be called a steakhouse. Once again a mediocre chain restaurant survives because it is a chain, not because the food is good. There are plenty of other good, locally owned restaurants in Bethesda. Don't waste your time or money at Ruth's Chris
