Bone in filet was not a great cut. However, my other 2 guests had filet mignons that were spectacular.

Not the best RC we have ever been too... Service was a bit slow. Lobster was great, very tender.... filet was above avg... sides were good. It was VDay weekend, so they were very busy. Facility could use a refresh. Overall I would give it a B+ / A-.

Your restaurant is a disorganized mess. Some sort of altercation happened in the kitchen. Switched waiters multiple times. Forgot items we ordered. Rowdy large group was allowed to do apparently whatever they want, including turn the scene into a club. Won't bring another business meal here.

YAY! RCSH is back and better than ever. I miss Dupont but the staff is as wonderful as ever! Thanks again, Jamelle!

Service has improved and the steaks and sides are as lovely as ever. Spinach sings as plates bubble and pop. Calamari could be a bit bigger, but that’s only because it’s so crisp and delicious.

Second Best Rib-Eye in DC!

Try it out!

My husband and I went to Ruth’s Chris in Washington DC to celebrate his birthday. After our meal which was fabulous, a manager came over and asked who’s birthday it was. My husband said it was his and she asked if it was a special one and he told her it was very special. It was his first time out to dinner since he’s had a kidney transplant we talked a little bit and she seemed almost as happy with his success as We were. After dinner our waiter brought out a piece of cake with a candle and wished him happy birthday. When it came time for the check our waiter came over and said we are so pleased that you were blessed with a new kidney and that you are healthy, all of the Ruth’s Chris staff would like to let you know that your dinner is on us. We were dumbfounded, couldn’t believe that people who are strangers would be so generous. This has been an incredible experience for us. Please dine at Ruth’s Chris knowing that they have a heart of gold besides the best steak in the world.

Staff was VERY attentive & professional. A manager comped is a glass of wine just because. Amazing build out of space. Glad they are part of the West End Neighborhood. Had a filet & a house salad that could easily feed two. Best vinegar & oil ever & the medium filet was perfect. Great experience

Was a terrific dinner UNTIL a couple of young men sat 3 tables away talking on their phones and playing you tube videos with max speaker phone setting. We asked the waitress to do something who actually said she would not, but she would tell the manager. However, we never saw the manager approach them and the noise continued the entire rest of our meal.

Apparently this Ruth’s Chris just moves to its new location 6 days ago.. you would never know it! Seamless service from a team of really young servers who were all true service pros. Each course was really nicely done. Steaks perfect, as were the sides and appetizers. The wine list was great and the desserts were perfection. The place was packed at 9:00pm on Sunday night. Not sure on the details, but it appeared that there was a DJ spinning in the back room. Overall great upscale atmosphere, wonderful food and excellent service. We were waited on by Douglas, Pierre & Brea. Beverage manager Mo checked in on us and they all did a great job. Well done!

To spend $230 in this establishment to recieve subpar service, be seated in the back corner of the restaurant and to have as awful an experience as we had is reprehensible. For this to be my first sit down experience and second actual interactive experience with Ruth's Chris, I would NEVER recommend my family and friends to patronize the restaurant

The manager on duty was rude, the food took longer than usual to come out & my lobster Mac n cheese had hair in it.
