Ruth's Chris Steak House - Bethesda
Nice place to celebrate anniversaryWe came here two years ago for our anniversary and came back because we had really enjoyed ourselves. Service and food was good. We ordered several of the waiter's recommendations and were happy with the choices. We were seated near the back of the restaurant and it was noticeably warmer back there than in the front of the restaurant. That coupled with the super-hot plates made it a little uncomfortable at times. The wait staff was very attentive and they brought out a little desert with Happy Anniversary written on it. A very nice touch.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating a doubleWe were celebrating a double birthday. They did a great job at making it a special evening. The Happy Birthdays on the table were fun!!!! We were not rushed and had a fabulous meal.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently delicious...Consistently delicious... the only drawback being that it seems their bread is different than in the past, not quite as good this time. Otherwise great experience... very attentive, never intrusive, genuinely warm staff. We will back, I'm sure, for our next family occasion!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent dinnerWe had an excellent dinner at Ruths this week. Our server, Gabriel, was superb. Knew our names, gave us time to order and eat, friendly, efficient. Thank you!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to celebrate a high schoolWent to celebrate a high school graduation. We have been to Ruth's Chris several times, and usually enjoy the visit. This time the service was excellent, and the table and ambience great. Wine choices great. I was disappointed in my steak for the first time ever at this restaurant. The cut of the 12-oz ribeye was poor, although well prepared.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMmmm...worth every pennyI have to be honest I had mentally prepared myself to spend alot of money on a typical meal any other typical restaurants offer. But I was greatly mistaken!! The food was absolutely delicious... and though pricey, you go in expecting that but as long as the food lives up to the price and expectation then its golden. I definitely recommend anyone to splurge one night and feast. Really glad I took the chance on all the hype!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRuths in Bethesda, MarylandFood was good as always. One steak was too rare (Ordered as medium-rare). Butter was smeared on top of filet-not appetizing. Service was too attentive, overbearing at times.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Good Evening for AllWe decided to go out on a whim and just celebrate as a family. We all enjoyed the food and the service. Certainly a memorable experience. Would highly recommend it to anyone. A fun event for the entire family.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressiveReally enjoyed the experience; it was our first time dining at this restaurant even though we pass by it a lot and have wondered how it was. We now will add it to our list of places to go when we want to dine for a special occasion. It was very clean. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff were very nice and accommodating. It exceeded our expectations for the dining experience. Loved it so much. Thanks.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but Worth ItTotal bill was $430 with wine and tip for four diners. Great food - great service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day ExperienceWe took my mother to Ruth Chris for Mother's Day. Let me start of with pros: great food and amazing service. The cons: the fire alarm going off for 30 + minutes and the management never offering anything for the interruption of our meal. As a former F&B person, offer a drink a discount, something. It became very clear @ the point the dollar was the most important thing, not the customer.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner as alwaysMy wife and I had another wonderufl dinner at Ruth's Chris. The waiter was great, the food was outstanding, and there wasn't much of a wait. My only criticism is that we attempted to use the valet parking but we waited for several minutes for the valet to finish smoking his cigarette around the corner...but after awhile we gave up. As a result we drove around the corner and found street parking. Other than that, our experience was outstanding.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the waiter was very attentive and available to me and my date.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a chain restaurant steakFor a chain restaurant steak house, this is the very best. Great quality meats, seafood, and sides. I love this place, and I have had few steaks anywhere that are any better, including several of the great steak houses in New York.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Our service wasGreat food. Our service was exceptional that night. Sometimes its hit or miss at this particular Ruth's Chris but our waiter that night was very good. Always love their steaks.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAn excellent experience.Great experience. The only downside was that part of the steak for two that we shared was tougher than usual. The service was outstanding - our waiter was not only extremely attentive, but was very comfortable inserting some humor. We will be back for sure.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were surprised with howWe were surprised with how unfriendly the reception was - we run 15 min late because we needed to drive one block around to access the valet parking. When we came in we were asked to wait for the table since our table was already given away. The reception desk staff were not friendly, neither professional. The waiter and the food were great. Service was too fast for the evening dinner - more of lunch rush style.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best of Bethesda!As usual, this location holds up to its reputation! Amazing atmosphere, an amazing wine list, great service, and of course, an amazing meal! Be sure to ask for Krista to be your server! She is fabulous!
Looking forward to our next visit!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit late for a 7:30 reservationA bit late for a 7:30 reservation because we could not locate the valet parking location and there are few through streets in that part of Bethesda that allow you to circle the block. Meters offer mostly 1 hour parking.
Still, table not ready when we arrived. My petit filet was quite dry and cooked a little more than medium rare. But these were the only issues.
RC always offers a wonderful dining experience and we will return again when we want to splurge and feel special. By the way, the waiter validates the valet parking when he brings the check...and your car is waiting when you exit the restaurant. Nice touch!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday SpecialWaitress was wonderful and food superb. the Happy Birthday dessert was so elegant - THANKS!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary CelebrationCelebrating our anniversary, 2 drinks each, we were given a $150 gift card, and still came out of pocket over $50.
You know it is expensive going in, but it was a very nice meal.
The service was first class.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Romantic Evening CelebrationOur evening was over the moon. The staff decorated out table for our anniversary and also included a card. The food was outstanding and our waiter very helpful and pleasant, yet let us have our private time.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. We chose to celebrate two family landmark events at Ruth's Chris for its superb steaks and comfortable ambiance. Our expectations were fulfilled.
We have one suggestion concerning the valet parking: place tent-like folding signs (as other shops have done) at Willow St., 46th and Oakridge St. directing drivers where to turn for the valet attendant. We were a few minutes late because we had to call the restaurant, then wind around the one way streets to get back to Wisconsin Ave. and make a u-turn to get to Willow.
Also, to help Open Table members, please include the cross street in the address and directions to the valet parking.
Thank you.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Flavor!The last time I ate here I thought it was the biggest rip-off. This experience changed my mind. First of all, Joe, our server was amazing. All the food was great especially the Greek salad, the warm bread, and the rib eye steak. Great flavor! Perfect for a special occasion.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointing, madeNever disappointing, made for a wonderful evening.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFilet was excellent as alwaysFilet was excellent as always and service was superb. Wine list excellent. Found St. Supery Cab on the list and it drank very well. In walking distance to Metro and all hotels in Bethesda.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTried to buy a $200.00 giftTried to buy a $200.00 gift certificate but computer was down. Can't understand why it couldn't be hand written like our bill was, on a Visa slip. This made no sense to me since they also wouldn't mail it to me but asked me to come back again tomorrow. That was a total inconvenience and certainly wasn't going to happen.
Loved the restaurant and the food, but this policy about getting a gift card was ridiculous.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAppreciated the attentionAppreciated the attention to my low sodium diet. Great steak salad !12/4/2012 12:00:00 AMGreat Service and Great Food!The staff at Ruth's Chris Bethesda are professional, attentive and knowledgable. As for the food, I am never disappointed. My favorite is the Cowboy Ribeye (what's a steak without a bone?). It is always prepared the way I ask (medium well) and tastes absolutely delicious. As for sides, the broccoli au gratin is it. Sure the other stuff is good but the broccoli is a stand out. My friends thought I was joking when I told them about it and forced them to order their own because I was unwilling to share. Now they are true believers.9/13/2012 12:00:00 AM
