If you like the food, but not the prices, Try the happy hour. It's a great place to go on a busy Sunday afternoon. Filet mignon steak sandwich is my favorite. Service is great.

Although you are going to pay for it, the food at Ruth's Chris never disappoints. The service is impeccable, the atmosphere is nice, and they are very attentive. The bone-in cuts of meat are my favorite. I wish they would bring back the onion rings and the spicy lobster appetizer.

While this restaurant is expensive you do get what you pay for. The steaks are extraordinary and the service outstanding.

Every Ruth's Chris seems to have a different layout with open areas and private areas. This one is well appointed although you could get lost finding your way back to the table from the restroom. Typical outstanding service and food. It is on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. I had the surf and turf and... More

My favorite place to eat but too expensive to do it often. Food and service is always excellent. Martini's perfect but worth the cost.

Went there for our wedding anniversary. Our waiter, German name, Hispanic heritage, was friendly, knowledgeable and discreet. As our request, he made several suggestions regarding the items to order. I like my meat well done which is often a problem with steaks. Had the steak & shrimp and he promised the steak would be well done, but still tender &... More

It is really tough to beat the Bethesda Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for the combination of food quality, service, convenience and ambience. The menu has everything you could ask for, all done very well. Usually they are offering a prix fixed dining option including a starter, a main course and even dessert if you make it that far. Great place for... More

Amazing lobster bisque and you have to order one of their delicious steaks! Had appetizers, soup and dinner with wine and although pricey ($225 for 2) so worth it.

Filet steak was juicy and full of flavour. Soups were good and prawns were outstanding. Service quick and courteous. I really like this place.

Very disappointed in our dinner tonight. Normally we can count on a great, cooked to order meal with exceptional service. None of that happened tonight. Fish was overcooked, steak was under cooked and the main course was served on such a small plate swimming in butter I could not even add the sides to the plate without dumping butter onto... More
