Ruth's Chris Steak House - DC - Connecticut NW
Delicious dinner!We dined here while on a business trip. Within walking distance of the Dupont Circle Hilton Hotel. Lobster bisque and Ahi tuna were outstanding. Filet mignon tender and cooked to perfection. Excellent wine list including a sweet Moscato! The shared mashed potatoes were divine!
Rennie, our attentive waiter, brought a complimentary birthday dessert for us to share. The ambiance of the main restaurant is private, dark, romantic, and secluded. We were seated in an adjacent large room with tall windows facing the street--a bit noisy as it fills up. It would have been preferable being in the quieter rooms in the main restaurant. If we are in D. C. again, we will definitely return, but ask for a better table location. All in all, excellent!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMRUTH CHRIS....

The food and service was flawless.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNational meetingsWhen coming to DC for the Mid-Year Meetings of the National Association of REALTORS, our group looks forward to dining at Ruth's Chris. The food is outstanding for flavor, variety and value for the dollar. The wait staff is always helpful and deliver with a smile. A truly terrific dining experience!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodRuth's remains an excellent "expense account" style steakhouse. $30+ steaks with ala carte sides and salads. The food is very good but not cheap. We were annoyed only by our server who tried several times to "super size" our meal with up-charged items. I suspect there was an employee promotion on selling certain bottles of wine. She asked us twice if we wanted to consider a bottle of wine off of the manger's special list.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day DinnerRuth Chris is one of my top 5 restaurants, so my fiance took me there for Mother's Day and we both got the Trio dinner, it was very good, and we drank a whole bottle of "yellow label" champagne. Our waiter was very attentive and that's what we love about this establishment. (besides the food of course)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMagnificent!We made reservations online, we arrived in a timely manner and were escorted to our table. The service, attitude, and overall professionalism was excellent. The food was magnificent. We both enjoyed the 12 oz stake & lobster. The stake nice and tender, the lobster very delicious. Dessert was the best, apple pie & ice cream a meal in it's self, my favorite!
PS: @ the end of our Mother's Day dinner, the waiter gave my wife the most beautiful long stem rose, unbelievable!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYearly traditionAM NOT HAPPY.....WE HAVE BEEN GOING TO RUTH CHRIS FOR 8 YEARS ON OUR ANNIVERSARY AS A TRADITION! WE HAVE ALWAYS GONE TO PHILADELPHIA, BUT WAS VISITING FRIENDS IN DC SO WE TRIED THAT ONE. I ORDERED FILET MIGNON MEDIUM RARE AND WAS GIVEN WELL DONE.....AND OUR DINNER WAS BROUGHT OUT IMMEDIATELY AFTER OUR APPETIZERS!! LIKE I SAID WE ARE NOT HAPPY :( PLEASE RESPOND.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time was a charmHorrible expierance last time, complete 180. Great service, large filet that was perfectly cooked and delicious salad. A little noisy, but 200% better this time. Redeemed themselves for sure.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food; great serviceYou know what to expect when going to Ruth's Chris and this one didn't diappoint. We got a great table at the window to people watch. One of the rooms is very dark with no windows. I would ask for the windowed room that we had if you want a bit more ambiance. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Waitstaff attentive.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's hard to go wrong here!Not a lot of negative thoughts after last night's visit to Ruth's Chris on Connecticut Avenue NW in DC. We were there for our friend's 56th birthday celebration. I originally had made a reservation for four of us, but we had a last minute addition to our group so I called the restaurant and my ad-hoc request was promptly accommodated. The bread put on the table was very tasty and incredibly crispy. We shared the crab-stuffed mushrooms, ahi tuna, and calamari appetizers. The calamari was simply stellar. We had both versions of the ribeye, NY strip, and my favorite - filet mignon. We all loved our entrees! Drinks were re/filled quickly and often. The space is very interesting - cozy and inviting, try to sit upstairs!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steaks, great wine listRuth’s Chris has been doing steak correctly for many years. This is our favorite steak chain. And this one did not let us down. The steaks were cooked correctly and the flavor was outstanding. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was a bit cave-like, we were in a back room, but it was intimate and fairly quiet. My wife does not really drink wine so I was thrilled to find silver oak by the glass on the wine menu. The side dishes were also very good. We had the au gratin potatoes that had a very nice cheesy flavor. The spinach was excellent and overall I’d rate the food highly. Would recommend.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was an outstanding evening.This was an outstanding evening. The service and food could not have been better.
Kudos to the entire staff.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a fantastic meal atI had a fantastic meal at this Ruth's Chris location. The servers were attentive- wonderful server named Ruth took good care of me. My meal was top-notch: iceberg wedge, medium rare filet, sauteed mushrooms and the cheesecake to finish it all. I'll be coming back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Monday Night Dinner at Ruth ChrisI normally go to the Ruth Chris in Annapolis but I'm VERY glad that I took my fiancé to the Connecticut Avenue location to celebrate his birthday, he was pleased & so was I. Everyone told him Happy Birthday, we had a great table near the window (although I was a bit drafty) but it really made it seem like I had planned this for a few weeks verses a few hours... They will definetly get my service again...4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was outstandingAs always the food was outstanding service was not so good this night.The waiter was rude and wasn't very happy to be serving us he rushed us to order said he would be back to bring bread to the table never came back with it when our drinks were brought out i asked about the beard and the person other then our waiter said oh let me get you some.Another waiter came back other then out waiter again and said were you asking for bread oh we are out been out for over an hour.Our waiter never came back to state this at all.It really wasn't even about the bread at all I but for the waiter to never come back to the table until after we were finished eating dinner was unacceptable. No refill on water no asking if we needed anything or another drink3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our anniversary andIt was our anniversary and we had a great evening. Starting with the bartender who attended to us as we awaited our table. Very friendly and attentive. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly as well. The meal was delicious - I had the filet, my husband the cowbody ribeye (I believe that is what it was called) - the sauteed spinach side dish was very tasty.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMRude waiterAs always the food was exceptional.Soon as we walked into RCSH we were greeted by name our coats were checked and we were seated at our same cozy table.The waiter came he was pretty good until he started to try and joke with us. Some of the joke was rude and offense to us so we were alittle irratated with him.We ordered a last mintue side it came out burned im guessing from them trying to rush it because all our other food was there.I told the waiter that it was not nessaserry to send another one because we were almost done but he insisted and that he would take care of it on the bill which he did. But of course it had to be rude joke behind him eating some of it.But as always I will return and enjoy the food and drinks just not the waiter1/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
