  • "The staff is extremely helpful, accommodating and friendly. They really make your visit a special occasion each and every time. The wine list is excellent as well as the menu. My husband and I go out to eat dinner a couple times a week and this is our favorite. Every visit has been a delight. The wait staff are very personable and add to your experience. This place is awesome and we love it. That's why we continue to come back. It never disappoints!"

  • "My girlfriend and I opted to start our Valentine's celebration a couple of days early. She made the arrangements and asked them to make our table a little more romantic. I was delighted with the extra little touches that they made to our table and that they made sure to sit us where we had a beautiful view. The food as always was delicious, with our steaks cooked to perfection and perfect sides. This is one of our go to places when we want a night out with great food and a view."

  • "Steaks were greasy, grisly, and served on small side-dish plates instead of on a platter! I cannot recommend this as a steakhouse!! too many others much better in the area."

  • "The overall food was good but the lobster tail that came with the steak was shrunk and was no bigger than a large shrimp. The steak was very small even for a 6 oz it was overcooked and not a medium well. They did not get my order right and I had to pay for an additional 6 oz steak in lieu of the 11 oz I originally ordered."

  • "I stop by Ruth's Chris locally 4-5 times a year--dining with a friend in arlington, we settled on Ruth's Chris. We arrived to a posh restaurant, and were pleased with the view. That was about all I was l pleased with. We arrived at 7 and were there for going on 3 hours due to the slowest service imaginable. The steak was more greasy than broiled in butted and it was a bit more than marbled. The crabtini was good but there was so much lettuce in there it was more of a salad. We were planning on dessert but the rest of the dinner took so long we opted out and got the check instead. This was the worst experience I've ever had with Ruth's Chris. Had it been my first, or in my home town, I'd never have returned."

  • "This was our (my wife & I) 1st time dining @ Ruth Chris. We arrived early & were directed 2 the Bar. The Bartendar (Andrew) was great, as the bar filled just prior 2 dinner. After a while, we were escorted 2 our table & 2 a breathtaking & fabulous view of Reagan Airport, the Metro (subway cars) & the trains on the railroad. Klaudia was our waitress, who also was great. We approached a table covered w/little tiny confetti hearts, as we celebrated Valentine's Day! Because of our attire we were asked if we wanted black napkins (impressive). We had the Lobster Bisque, New York Strip, Salmon w/Lump Crab Meat, Creamed Spinach & Cauliflower Au Gratin. All delicious! 4 dessert we had the Cheesecake, Bread Pudding, Port & a Double Espresso."

  • "We arrived 40 mins late for our reservation, but there was no problem as it was not that busy. We did the fixed price (classic) menu. Food, wine and service were all great, as expected from such a high scale restaurant."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "I’m sorry but… the experience doesn’t quite live up to all the hype… or the price. Our steaks were fine, except for being underdone. But, the staff was quick to take it back to finish cooking it to order (Yes, they put the same piece of meat that sat for 5-10 min on the table in front of us back on the grill). Then, the dining room; it had all the ambiance of something between a school cafetorium and an airport Applebee’s at 2am. Except, that wouldn’t be fair to Applebee’s; their staff is quicker and much more friendly and knowledgeable. There are much better steak restaurants in DC."

  • "Me and my boyfriend celebrating Valentine's Day at this restaurant, which is my favorite on to eat at. We had a great time and enjoyed the view and each other. It was very romantic and the food was exceptional, as always. I recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner out with that someone special."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I've never been disappointed in the food or service at a Ruth's Chris, and I've been to several throughout the US. This one is particularly notable for its outstanding wait staff. My wife had the ribeye and I had the New York strip, both prepared perfectly. The "crabtini" appetizer is excellent as is, but would love to see it served with a baguette to make a mini "lobster roll." The broiled tomatoes are my favorite side dish. The restaurant kept things flowing and didn't let the huge Valentine's Day rush slow things down."

  • "Free parking at night under the building. Elevator to the restaurant. Outstanding city view. Overall - incredible!!!"

  • "Do not change! I do my best to get to Ruth's in Crystal City every time I visit because of the consistently great food and service. Thank you!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "I had been to this restaurant several times but this time, even though the food was excellent, the service from the host stand was less than acceptable. When my party was directed to our table we had seen several empty tables near the windows. As we were directed to an interior table I inquired about being seated at one of the tables by the windows and was informed that they had been reserved. I was unaware, after making several reservations at this particular restaurant, that in order to be seated at a table by a window, this had to be requested when your reservation was made. This had never happened before and instead of being a celebratory evening, a temporary damper had been served along with the steaks."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "This was our first trip to Ruth's Chris, hearing great things from friends. We were seated next to a couple with the 3-5 year old kid. We were not asked if the table was okay until after we were settled and felt awkward moving. The kid spastically shouted, ruining any kind of ambiance we had hoped for. As for our waiter, we asked for a Savignon Blanc recommendation and he looked at the list and recommended two champagnes…clearly had no clue what wine was or what was best. We picked one and it was pretty good. They also forgot our side and it did not come out until we were almost done with our main course. The food was excellent and made up for everything else being subpar. For the money it costs to go there, I expect more."

  • "Dinner was on a Friday night at 7:00, but surprisingly not too busy inside. The server was great as was the food (bone-in filet); overall highly recommended."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We were a party of 7 and had a rectangle table. Since it was a business event, a round table would have been better, but no biggie. The food was good. The sea bass was outstanding. My ribeye was a bit over cooked (I asked for medium. The steak was nice and hot. The lobster mac and cheese was delicious. The wine was great. Overall, it was just as I would expect from Ruth's Chris Steak House. The view at this location is great. While it's over the airport - at night, you can see all of the lights and it's pretty - and if you look further out, you can see the Washington sites, Capitol, Washington Monument, etc."

    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Front desk - you take your position way to seriously. You told me I had to wait for 45 mins.! I made a reservation on open table and was seated within 15 mins. There were more than enough empty tables in the dining area."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Overall, this restaurant is one of our favorites. The steak is always delicious, the atmosphere nice and the menu is updated regularly. On my most recent visit I opted for the carribean lobster tail. I'm not sure what made it carribean but it was flavorless and the meat had been grilled to a crisp. The service was just okay. Not horrible, but far from the consistently high quality service that I receive at Morton's. When all is said and done. There's nothing like a filet mignon from Ruth's. We'll be back."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "A very enjoyable evening with a great view! We asked for a window seat and were able to be seated facing the airport. However, the view from the bar was far more spectacular. We plan to request that side of the restaurant next time. Our waiter was helpful, polite and fun. Our food was delicious especially our steaks and the calamari. We were celebrating a birthday and liked the way we were able to quietly celebrate it with decorations on the table and birthday cake - very nicely done! However, we never got our photo taken as promised. It was after we had blown out the birthday candle that the waiter asked about if we had our photo taken and then said he would send the photographer over but he never showed up. A perfect evening nonetheless!"

  • "Every time that we go to this restaurant we are fully satisfied with the food, service, server attitude and attention to our requests and great choice of wines. We choose this restaurant for special occasions and for some spontaneous nights out as well. We have never been disappointed, nor have we found a better restaurant in the Washington area for great dining."

  • "Food was awesome, as usual at Ruth's Chris. However, this location is MUCH busier than other ones in DC that we've been to. Consequently, it is very loud and crowded, ultimately taking away from the fine dining experience. For the cost of the meal, this was a big disappointment given the company we had (had never been to a fine dining place like this). Definitely will not come to this location again. Service was the best part of the experience. Very attentive servers. However, we were apart knocked over by one that was literally running through the hall to get to a table. Gotta applaud their dedication, but question their ways Finally, was disappointed to learn they don't participate in DC Restaurant Week."
