Ruth's Chris is an excellent steakhouse and my wife and I decided we would visit after attending Phantom of the Opera at the Kennedy Center. The restaurant is high atop the building that it is in and overlooks Washington Reagan National Airport. Since we both love to watch airplanes this was an ideal choice for us. We arrived early and...

My wife and I go here once a month or so and the food is great. On top of the food though the unobstructed views of Washington, DC are just amazing. Kids can watch planes take off and land from Regan National Airport. An amazing spot for a great steak!

Great service provided an added benefit for a private business meeting. The food was excellent and include a wide variety of choices and prepared fresh and hot! A bit loud, but we had a great meeting.

Took advantage of the Ruth's classics menu selections aahs had a fantastic three course meal at a great price. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere, enabling the view of Washington and the Potomac made for a high end dining experience at a moderate price. Look forward to coming back on my next trip.

There are lot's of steak places in the area but Ruth's has a reputation for consistency so when I was down here on business we decided on this location in Crystal City. Not knowing it had a spectacular all-around view from the 11th floor it was a great welcoming sight when we entered. It's a busy place and service though... More

Close your eyes and you could be in Morton’s, Capital Grille, Flemings, or any one of the other formula high-end steak joints. Very good steaks, overly generous sides, attentive service and over the top prices. As good as it sounds, this formula is really getting booooorrrrring. The only difference here (when you open your eyes) is the view from the... More
