Ruth's Chris Crystal City is the best of the best... Of all the high end steak places around the country, there is just something special about this particular one. Ask to be seated in the bar room. It overlooks the DC skyline, many monuments, and DCA. The service is fantastic (especially with Teddy!) and the aroma of the butter & sizzling platters adds to the anticipation of an all around great meal & experience. I always compare the others to this one regardless of what city I'm in, and this one in Arlington/Crystal City is our favorite. I am already looking forward to my next business trip to DC!

Usual Oustanding Service
It is what it is. The usual selections which we enjoy. Attentive service and the great view. One of our favorite spots.

We will be back!
We have eaten at other Ruth's when we want a great steak and to celebrate an occasion. This one was certainly exceptional largely because of the ambience and view at night. The steaks were cooked perfectly and we enjoyed all of the side courses especially shoestring potatoes and broccoli. It's hard to believe this is a chain but it's a great chain.

Ruth's Chris Steak House provided a wonderful atmosphere and incredible dining for my customers and I. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy ourselves. the service was impeccable and I would gladly return when I am in the area again!

The food was extremely good
The food was extremely good with the exception of a hard piece of aluminum foil inside the sweet potato. They apologized but nothing beyond that which I found odd since a restaurant of this magnitude would of accommodated us more for the inconvenience. The server was great and the view was perfect of the river & airport. We valet our new 2013 vehicle and I think they had too much excitement driving it off to the lot. I will definitely recommend this place. Service and food is great!!!

A personal favorite
Always a great experience at the Ruth's in Arlington.

Visit with daughter
This restaurant is amazingly consistent and provides outstanding food and service. My daughter and I are both hooked on the petit filet, but this time we tried the porterhouse for two. Excellent flavor and cooked to perfection!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's Ruth Chris!!!
Always excellent food and fantastic service at any location. I particularly favor the Arlington location for the great views. Thanks for always providing 5 star quality.
7/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Everything was perfect: food, atmosphere, service. The best Ruth's of any we've visited.

Great steak--Great view!
Crystal City, Va, 11th story panoramic view of Washington, DC and National Airport complemented by great service and Prime Steak. If you want that, you won't find a better place. Just take money!

Our 20th Anniversary Dinner
Our experience was absolutely superb. We appreciated all the special touches that were made in celebration of our anniversary. The food was wonderful, the ambiance was wonderful, and the service was wonderful. Our only complaint would be the wait times between ordering and receiving our food and waiting for the server to return to our table.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a Favorite!
Whether a pre-planned event or a spontaneous act to come to this Ruth's Chris, it never fails to be our favorite dinner location in the Nation's Capital region. By far, the best steaks ever with a spectacular view of Reagan National Airport in the foreground and the DC landscape behind it.

Made me happy
We took my baby sister for her 21st birthday. The service was impeccable, the old was amazing and the view was outstanding!!! I ordered the stuffed mushrooms (the outlive been better) they were ok, BUT the spicy lobster was outstanding. I am not a lobster fan, but hen I saw that it was fried I had to try it. I'm so glad I did because it was delectable.

Ruths Chris in Crystal City
Have been to others. This was the first time at this location with my wife and a good friend. As expected, superb food and great service.

Love Ruth Chris
Ruth Chris's 15th floor panoramic view of the city and airport was breathtaking. I had the best glass of Pinot Noir and my plate came out sizzling with a big medium rare New York Strip, creamed broccoli, tempura onion rings, and sweet potato casserole. When I say that the steak melts in your mouth, I am not exaggerating one bit. Aside from the car note that you will definitely pay at the end, it was definitely a memorable experience.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expensive but worth it. The Cowboy Ribeye is delicious. Great view of Reagan National Airport, get a table next to the window if you can.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband had a wonderful birthday at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Arlington! They gave us the best seat in the restaurant and we were catered from the moment we sat down until the time we left. We were greeted warmly and the service was impeccable. The occasion was my husband's birthday and he loved the view, the food, the ambience and the service. I can't praise the staff enough and we left a great tip for our wait staff. Thanks for making the day memorable for him.

Good Service and wonderful
Good Service and wonderful meal in a nice atmosphere.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
When i am in greater DC/VA for business, this Ruth's Chris is a must. Though there are many options ong Crystal Drive, none compare with RC for quality of food, service, and view. Be sure to ask for a table on the airport side. View is better and less noise than the bustling bar side.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Recently I went on a date to Ruth Chris because he never went there. We both loved our window view, the service was wonderful and the food was excellent! I ordered the stuffed chicken breast with the sweet potato casserole and he had the steak. He tried my sweet potato and loved it so much that he ordered one to go. I'm so happy that I could introduce him to Ruth Chris and now they have made a new customer for life!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great steaks always
I love Ruth's Chris steaks which are broiled in butter. This Ruth's Chris has an incredible view of the Potomac River, Capitol, and National Airport. It is so nice to watch the sun set over the Potomac River with the sailboats -- and see the planes take off and land at the airport. The service here is wonderful.

The food was fantastic. My
The food was fantastic. My wife enjoyed a petite Filet (Oscar Style) which is served with a crab cake, asparagus and hollandaise sauce. She was very pleased with it and stated there was a party of flavor in her mouth. I started with an appetizer, the Chicken and Andouille Sausage soup. It was flavorful and light enough to allow room for the main course. We decided to share our desserts; Bread Pudding, Cheesecake Crème Brulee' and a Chocolate Cookie w/Rhubarb Sauce. All three desserts were outstanding. The night out was very enjoyable. The only drawback was the service we received from our waiter. He was not as attentive as he should have been and we waited quite a bit between his visits to the table.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Continues to be the best
I have dined at other Ruth's Chris steak houses and have always been impressed. It continues to provide quality food in a upscale setting. I would recommend it!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfectly Cooked Meat
Despite the number of children dining at 7:00 p.m., the dining room was perfect for a good conversation and a great view of the airport. The New York Strip steak I ordered and the meat served to the other guests at my table was perfectly cooked. I like my steak a little more than medium rare but not medium so it could be a little tricky. We also celebrated a couple of birthdays and received an unexpected dessert of ice cream, chocolate chocolate chip cookies, and what was called Creme Brulee. The Creme Brulee was not what it should be -- it was dense and heavy.
9/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
Will keep coming back !
Great company, great wine, great service, great steak. My sister and I split entries, the Cowboy Ribeye and the Chilean Sea Bass. We both loved the steak and we're pretty ambivalent about the fish. However, we had more than enough to eat. It was a lot of fun!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Favorite Ruth's Chris Ever
We have had the pleasure of dining at many Ruth's Chris Steak Houses as well as plenty of other steak houses. Ruth's Chris never seems to disappoint in terms of consistently good food and excellent service. However, this particular location deserves special accolades. This one was truly our favorite. With an excellent view of the Washington DC skyline and National Airport, it is truly a unique dining experience. Austin was a wonderful waiter. We chose to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary here and they truly made us feel special. As usual the filet was divine and cooked to perfection. Can't say enough great things about our experience.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding service the veiw of the plans taking off the night lights the waiter and service the food make you want to smake your momma (LOL) but greattttttt

Delighted with the entire experience for this family birthday event. Staff was exceptional--attentive, engaging and well versed in all aspects of the restaurant and its offerings.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great views of DC from the 11th floor @ Crystal City. Great food and service.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The view at this particular Ruth Chris is the best in DC! Roof-top view of the city and National Airport.. Food is excellent like all other Ruth Chris locations.. I'm a big fan of the Sweet Potato Casserole!
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Steak. Great Service.
Great Steak. Great Service. Great view. Disappointing sides. I had the Ribeye and wife had Filet. Both very good. The bread was very good. Paying about $10 a piece for side items was a bit much. Baked potato was a little hard and not hot enough to melt the butter. Broccoli au grautin was very plain unless you like crisp brocoli with a thick layer of shreaded cheddar melted on top. My recommendation just get the steak and bread on special occassions.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We made our reservation through Open Table and asked for a table near a window, knowing the views of Reagan National and the Potomac are amazing. Absolutely no problems the entire evening; the wait staff was attentive and engaging, the food was timely, accurate and delicious, and the ambience was spectacular. Could not be more pleased with our experience.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I were there recently for his birthday and our waiter was Teddy. We've had Teddy as our waiter in the past and he did not disappoint for the second time. He made my husband feel very special and he is just an overall nice person. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and my husband stated that he hasn't had a steak cooked that well in a very long time. So, kudos to the chef as well. Overall an excellent experience. This location never disappoints.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ask for David!
So attentive - we are frequent diners and always happy with RC, this evening was for granddaughters 14th bday celebration and it was perfect. David was especially wonderful!

Great Food and Service!
I have been to Ruth Chris Steak House a number of times and each time I loved it! This year (November 2013), I took my husband to the Crystal City, Virginia location for his birthday. The view is absolutely breath taking. I loved the visit to this location and will go back to this location on my next visit. As always, the service was great and the food acceptional. We had the rib eye steaks and they were cooked to our specifications to a tee.
I love Ruth Chris Steak House!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
This was my first time at Ruth Chris . It was a very enjoyably evening. The view was great! The food was delicious! Or waiter was so informative, courteous and helpful when I couldn't decide what I wanted. It all sounded so good! We definitely wold return to the Arlington, VA location.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
This was a first for both my husband and I. We had a window view, great food, and even better conversation. We plan to go back next year.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Melted in my mouth!
The food was absolutely great, it was my boys friends first time and he loved it like no other!

Porter House Madness
Porter House steaks should not be so good!....The mushrooms complimented the Steak precisely ...... excellent Waiter, The whole experence was complete.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The staff provided very special evening for my wife's birthday -- table decoration, special desert, photo, and all around quality service. All very nice and tastefully executed -- no big hats or songs!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
very good food nicely presented but very expensive (a la cart) but worth it as long as u know or resign yourself that it will be expensive
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was excellent from the moment you walk in the door. It's worth every penny
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was excellent. Ambience and noise was also excellent.

A Perfect Thanksgiving at Ruth's
Another perfect Thanksgiving there since we didn't want to cook Delicious traditional turkey dinner. Wait staff all seemed happy to be there and taking care of everyone.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Thanksgiving evening
Rather than to cook the traditional Thanksgiving meal, two friends and I decided to dine at Ruth's Chris, one of our favorite restaurants. It was a wise decision and we intend to do it again.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was good but the server, Teddy was outstanding!! He was very attentive & had a good sense of humor. Also the young lady who helped with the water & to clear the tables was so sweet. She always inquired as how we were doing & if we were enjoying our food. I only had one issue, it was my fiance's birthday but I ordered the meal special for $42.95 but they decorated & presented him with my dessert plate. I did not say anything because I hate to ruin a nice occasion. But it made me wonder, if I dessert had not come with my meal, what would they have given him?
