If a restaurant charges $50.00 for a rib eye steak it should be excellent but it was not. It was just ordinary. The only excellent thing in this restaurant was the service. The staff was awesome. The food was too expensive and the steak had no flavor.

Both got their Ruth's Classics offer. Included salad (fresh greens, good dressing, shaves of decent romano cheese), 6 oz filet (tender,much more flavorful than a filet shold be, cooked precisely to order), shripm (fresh, nicely seasoned and cooked just right so you still have a snap to them) and a lobster tail. The lobster was the only downside as it was obviously frozen. My portion was a little mushy with hit or miss flavor, my wife's was perfect. Finished off with dessert. Cheesecake (run of the mill - not bad but not great) and small chocolates -very good. Would suggest having some port with the chocolates. Perfect paring. Validated parking for this area a real plus.

Mediocre steak. Cooked perfectly however. Pricy. Not impressive. Ray's is much better. Decent service. Boring decor.

Pros: Decent place for a work luncheon.

Cons: Not the place for a true steak lover, It's a chain

I love this location because of the great view of the DC Metro area at night. This was a last minute plan, we walked in at 8:00 and were seated right away! The service and food were great.. I am learning to eat better ( code for diet) so I happy with the veggie and salad selections on the menu. This was really the most important part of selecting Ruth's Chris for dining during the week!

Nice classy atmosphere for a special dinner. $$$$ prices, but there are some very good pre-fixe menu choices.
