    This has been my favorite Ruth's Chris that I have ever been to, so I am happy that I live locally to visit almost on a monthly basis. I have visited the other in DC and the one in Crystal City, along with Orlando, Philadelphia, Hartford, Baltimore, and Atlantic City; DC Convention Center is my favorite. The staff is always very attentive, and the food is always top notch; I know when I dine at Ruth's Chris Convention Center in DC that I have nothing to worry about, which is why this is the restaurant of choice when I have family and friends in town visiting.

    I was really suprised.. the food was not that great. The steak was ok, but the side orders were greasy. Kind of disappointing for a place that gets a lot of hype.

    I love the relaxed feel of this place - dark, small and cozy – like a comfortable living room. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Outstanding service and I loved the attentiveness.
