Good Cajun style food with plenty of variety. Nice variety of drinks, beers and wine.
Saw the reviews and quickly booked it for my family of 4. When we arrived via Uber, did not love the location, but looks can be deceiving. Restaurant interior was nice and the food was excellent. Had fried oysters and scallops for appetizers. All were perfect. My family ordered the salmon, crab cakes, seafood parchment, and seafood pasta dishes. All were A+. Nothing but positive comments on RTs.
The food was really good. We really enjoyed the service and the people. There was a group of three people next to us that were unnecessarily loud. Nice quaint spot for dinner
Another fabulous meal at RTs as usual. This time almost like private dining in the lovely back room.
Great food!! Great service!! A favorite spot that I go to frequently.
This place was nice in accommodating the size of our party. The food was just ok. The shrimp and grits as well as a few other dishes lacked flavor and texture. It was mediocre, but the service was great and the staff was friendly.
We had not been able to visit RT's for over a year due to the pandemic. In the meantime, we learned that the restaurant had been sold to a new owner. We noticed that some of the portions were smaller now, particularly the Crawfish & Shrimp Beignets. We were served 3 small balls of fried crawfish & shrimp & they were not wrapped in angel hair pasta as they are supposed to be. They didn't look anything like we used to be served. We still enjoyed our meals, but I am noticing all kinds of businesses raising their prices for the same products or services, and in some cases, for lesser products or services.
Food was great as always. The smothered catfish never disappoints!
Food was great. Service excellent.
We really enjoyed the evening. Friends that were with us go to NewOrleans often. They loved the food.
Will recommend to others and will return again
We reserved a table for 9 for a family birthday celebration. When we arrived, the table was ready and we were seated immediately. The server immediately took our drink and appetizer. The service was superb and the food was delicious and was prepared quickly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. We had a wonderful time.
It was my birthday. Customer service was excellent! Good was very good!!
Great food as always, great service, for a great price. Definitely a neighborhood gem!
Excellent! Death By Gumbo, etouffee, soft shell crabs, and mussels were fantastic! Top notch service.
One of my favorite restaurants. Highly recommend. Great service
The food was amazing. Our server, Melanie, was attentive without hovering. There are a lot of menu choices so it took time to sort through the options. But my family and I enjoyed every entree.
Great food and service. Enjoyed a wonderful evening with family.
We came to Northern VA for the express purpose of having dinner at RTs. That should say it all!
A neighborhood gem that is notable for their authentic Creole south Louisiana cuisine. The atmosphere is just like a friendly, welcoming New Orleans restaurant the locals frequent. A great experience we love to frequent often for the genuine gumbo, red fish, trout, shrimp, crab, crawfish and etouffe. And the very respectable wine list is the bonus!
The food was delicious with generous portions. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating. Overall it was an enjoyable meal.
Food was great as was the service. Atmosphere like a local bar.
Delicious cajun seafood menu. Everyone at our table got something different and it was delicious!
The meal was fantastic. Service was exceptional. I will definitely go there again!
A total gem of a restaurant serving amazing Creole food in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. RT's has been one of my all-time favorite restaurant in the Greater Washington, DC area for over 20years!
I recommend it highly.
RT's never disappoints. Great food in a cozy, neighborhood setting, superb service and great value for the money. What more could you ask for? Highly recommended!
Always good service here and tasty food, although it's a bit pricey
Very efficient service. Great food choices at reasonable prices. Not my first time at this restaurant. Will definitely go again soon!
Wonderful Creole cuisine. It's like a slice of New Orleans in Del Ray.
We were seated next to a large group that was very loud. That somewhat diminished our experience this time.
I love RT's authentic Cajun/Creole food. My blackened redfish special with lump crabmeat was outstanding and expertly blackened. Desserts don't always measure up to everything else: the bananas foster cake was a bit dry.
Cat at the bar is incredible, food was outstanding. 10/10
There was nothing special about this restaurant. II didn’t find the value to be worth the meal.
My husband picked this restaurant based on the menu selections and the reviews from Open Table. RT's didn't disappoint! He selected the Smothered Catfish and I had Shrimp & Crab Etouffee. It was delicious and on par with the restaurants, we visited in New Orleans. The servers were friendly and informative. There are so many choices on the menu to delight anyone's tastebuds! A great local restaurant where one can 'kick back' and savor the flavor!
Food and service are consistently excellent! New owners super friendly ….add a neighborly vibe.
Appetizers, gumbo, jambalaya all good. Fish entrees were overdone. Unfortunate.
We went to DC with some family who were visiting from GA. I found this restaurant via open table and the reviews were accurate. The food was so tasty I forgot to snap a pic! The service was excellent in addition to the great food! Items we ordered were the salmon, stuffed shrimp, jack Daniels shrimp, shrimp and grits, fried oysters, popcorn shrimp and key lime pie. All the aforementioned items were tasty!
One of the best in Washington
Can’t beat the food and service
Portions are a little smaller - but they are trying to hold their prices.
Friendly staffs and great food!!
RT’s is the perfect neighborhood venue for celebrating those special life milestones. Wonderful cuisine, welcoming service, and a comfortable , cozy space. Six of us - representing four generations - had a grand, laughter-filled dinner yesterday.
Rt's was great as usual! Sat at the bar and Kat was great! Loved the smothered catfish and the she crab soup! Always delicious!
