amazing as everBest streak house in the area with the most attentive service6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, service and viewWent there for dinner to celebrate my husbands birthday. Everything was perfect. I was also pleasantly surprised by how family friendly they are. My two year old was treated with just as much attention and respect as we were. We all had a wonderful time!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time to visit this locale.First time to visit this locale. Excellent views, if right tables are available. Food & service were excellent.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and AtmosphereWe really enjoyed ourselves the food was great the and the service was great.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great MealWe enjoyed the entire evening. We were seated at a window table with a great view of the Potomac and DC. The food was up to Ruth's usual high standards. Our reservation noted that we were celebrating my son's birthday, so the staff did some little extras to recognize the occasion.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect lunch date-The steaks were perfectly cooked as ordered and the sides were just as good. The baby spinach was especially good. We couldn't eat all the food but when they brought a complimentary dessert with 'Happy Birthday' written in chocolate we had no problem finishing that! Apparently the staff really did read the special request I sent through Open Table because we got a window seat as I'd asked (first come first served but they didn't have to ask) and at no other time did I mention it was my wife's birthday. I would definitely come again.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Anniversary DinnerOur waitress, Klaudia, made us feel so special on our 5th anniversary! The great service, fantastic view of the DC lights, delicious food, and surprise dessert were an incredible treat! We were so grateful and impressed.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSmilingGoing to this restaurant is a birthday treat at our house. Our last experience left us questioning our choice. However, the restaurant quickly redeemed itself this go round. When we were about to be seated, we noticed a table being cleared by the window. We asked for that location and the staff could not have been nicer about moving us to the window location. Our waiter, David, was extremely personable and added to the joyfulness of our evening. As always, the food was fabulous. We will definitely return.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great as usualThe food was great as usual and our waiter, Elmer, was excellent.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday DinnerWe had a birthday dinner and everything was just like I wanted, our server Teddy was super nice and professional, and made our night, Thanks5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my special guy thereI took my special guy there for his birthday. We had a great table with a window view, the server staff was prompt, and the food was superb! The interior decor was beautiful and even though the room was grand, it still felt very private. Thank you Ruth's Chris for an awesome experience!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Treat!I took my mother for Mother's Day. We were immediately greeted through our Open Table reservations and seated at a table with a spectacular view. Our server was courteous and patient as this was my mother's first time dinning there. At the end of the evening, we were given long stem roses, a perfect treat!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, services, waiters."I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The gumbo soup was amazing and the cesar salad was refreshing. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day 2013 - ElevatorSunday was Mother's Day. We had reservations for 12 pm, which is when the restaurant opened. We arrived about 20 minutes early and were kept waiting downstairs in the building lobby with two other families because the elevator to the 11th floor restaurant level did not operate to that level until noon. Some thought should be given to having the elevator operate at least 15 minutes prior to the first reservations, so that guests arriving a bit earlier can at least be in the restaurant waiting area as opposed to downstairs in the building lobby.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRuth Chris - Food with a ViewThe food and service were top notch. The Arlington location had a wonderful view of National Airport. Serving sizes were more than sufficient. As long as you know going in that the prices can be high, it lends itself for a wonderful evening.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, nothing but theAs usual, nothing but the best. The food was great, the service was great and the atmosphere was excellent. The lobster risotto special was absolutely delicious. Have been going here for years and will return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRUTH CHRIS IS #1I love Ruth Chris!!!!! My experience is ALWAYS great!! Keep doing what you are doing!!!!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMcarlas 30thWe've been to Ruth Chris several times and are still satisfied with the overall experience. The view was nice and the wait staff were excellent. It was my wifes 30th birthday and she was more than satisfied with her meal (filet). I would recommend Ruth Chris to anyone but its especially nice on special occassions.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you have ever been to aIf you have ever been to a Ruth's Chris steak house you know you will have a great steak! Restaurant overlooks Reagan National Airport so you can watch planes takeoff & land. Service was great, but noise level in the restaurant made it difficult to have a conversation at our table. It was pouring down rain the night we went and valet was nowhere to be found.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMCrystal City GemThe location was in the prettiest little area ever! The view from the window gave us a view of Reagan Airport which was ok but you should definitely ask for a view of the Capitol. Of course the filet mignon was cooked perfectly. The dessert was a little skimpy with the Ruth's special but tasty nevertheless.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with a specatularGreat food with a specatular view of Reagan Airport4/16/2013 12:00:00 AM6 of us celebrated my husband's6 of us celebrated my husband's birthday there Sat. night. We arrived at 5:30, to enjoy the expansive view of DC, stayed through sunset and enjoyed the night view as well. They pampered us and made him feel very special. When we rose to leave, fireworks began outside the window-the Cherry Blossom Festival in SW had fireworks that night. If the Nats were playing a home game, they would probably have been visible too. It was a magical night!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRuth's Chris has been oneRuth's Chris has been one of our favorite places to dine, since the first time we went there in 2005. The food has always been cooked perfect and delicious. This was the very first time our asparagus was served overcooked. Usually the asparagus is a bright green and crisp. We were very disappointed that our server even brought it out. The asparagus was a dull green and mushy. We sent it back with no problems and we will continue to go to Ruth's, however, it was just something we did not expect.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner GuestReally enjoyed dinner with my grand-daughter and her friend. She is 8 and plans to return once she gets a job!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff is great, food exceptional.Staff is great, food exceptional. A little noisy because I was seated close to the bar, but the table/view was worth it.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner with a view!Had an absolutely wonderful dinner! We took 2 customers out,service was wonderful, food was absolutely delicious, and couldn't have asked for a better view!
I will be going back, for sure!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMRibeye was overcooked andRibeye was overcooked and extremely fatty (even for a ribeye). Sauteed baby spinach was extremely bland -- as was the crabtini. I've ordered the crabtini regularly for years and I was shocked at how poor it was this time -- very little crabmeat and bland dressing. The crabcakes were disappointing as well -- tons of filler. Not sure what's happened to RC's menu - the items used to be so consistent and good. Now it's medicore at best :(4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for a special occasionWe went for a special occasion and let me say that the service was exeptional. We were seated promptly and our server Eddie was very patient explaining the menu and how the meat was cooked.
We had a wonderful time and the food was delicious, they cooked our meat perfectly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, not just for the food and service but also for the spectacular view. We had reservations at 6pm and we were able to enjoy the beautiful view of Arlington/DC. It might be better at night and see the lights.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood solid; service could be betterThe food was pretty decent considering this is a multi-national chain restaurant. If you want a fairly nice view of DC, Reagan Airport, and the outlying Maryland area across the Potomac, this is perhaps one of the best restaurants for the view. The service was nice, though our server Clara, did not smile during all of our interactions; not very welcoming.
Perhaps, this high-priced establishment is too used to big spenders that they realize that they don't need to go the extra mile for what they may feel is an "entitled" generous tip.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a memorable meal markedWe had a memorable meal marked by great service and food prepared just as we requested. Every steak was cooked to perfection. The crabtini and creme brûlée were excellent additions. Seated one table away from the window, we still had a nice view. While staying in Crystal City, this is an easy stroll from most hotels in the area.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways superbAlways enjoy this location and frequently return when in DC in business. Highly recommend.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely love this restaurant.Absolutely love this restaurant. It is a little on the pricey side and the table spacing is a little odd, but the food is excellent, servers and waitstaff are very attentive, and it provides a great opportunity to spend some quality time with those you love !3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service,Excellent food and service, as one would expect from Ruth's Chris.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service, perGreat food and service, per usual.
