A word from Rural Society
Rural Society is a contemporary Argentine steakhouse from nationally renowned master of Latin cuisine Chef Jose Garces. Inspired by his travels to South America, Rural Society is at once rustic and luxurious, bringing the energy and sophistication of Buenos Aires to Washington. Our menu and primarily South American wine list, combined with our warm hospitality and welcoming décor, transport you far from the bustle of the District to the sweeping cattle ranches and grill-fired kitchens of Argentina.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "This is the best steak I've had in dc. All of the other tapas: chorizo, empanadas etc were also wonderful! Will definitely go back."

  • "Great food, great ambiance, but the service has a long ways to go. Took extremely long to get our food, appetizers were staggered, and the table side meat carving, while a nice gimmick, proved clunky and inefficient."

  • "First time having dinner here, and it was excellent. The sausage platter appetizer was excellent, and the picanha was melt in your mouth perfection. The flan is absolutely worth getting for dessert - smoky and flavorful."

  • "Great food, but hope when most tables are empty they still don't seat you near the kitchen."

  • "We ate here a little over a week after the restaurant opened. It's a lovely restaurant, although as a short person, I found the chairs pretty uncomfortable -- too high off the ground. We got our cocktails and appetizers in pretty short order, but then waited about 45 minutes to an hour for our other dishes. The waiter was apologetic but seemed unable to move things along. We spoke to the manager, who was very apologetic and accommodating, and ended up comping most of our meal, which was really the only right thing to do. We asked what had happened, he said our ticket got buried among a slew of new tickets. Which of course is not acceptable kitchen management. The comping was appropriate, though."

  • " This Argentinian gem was just the place. Everytime we try someplace new it is a disaster at first, then after time works the kinks out and is pretty decent. This place is spot on in every way. Looks good, service fantastic, food fabulous, better than we ever expected, attention to detail all evening. We were there three and one half hours and eating all that time. We had charcuterie, empanada tucamana, bresaola,picana,pomplona, sorrentino, setas, one order of nury that was sooooo good we ordered another right away, chocotorta, 2 bottles of B. Vincent Delapo,Sancerre Wine, assorted cocktails. We had a great time, and our server Alex was the best- no glitches, no delays, no sending back food. We can not wait to go again."

  • "Great attention to detail in all the foods. Seasonings in individual dishes are complimentary when eaten together. Very attentive, informed waiter and staff. Will definitely return."

  • "Anyone from Philly will tell you that Garces has filled the city with numerous places to have fun, amazing meals with friends and family. I could not be happier that he chose DC to open a new restaurant. The place is unlike any other in the city and has an awesome hearty vibe that resonates throughout the place and menu. Everything we tried was delicious with the homemade chorizo being at the top of our list. Perfect place for a full meal or a drink/app after work. Cant wait to go back again!"
