This place is a hidden gem . If you love Cajun do not miss this place ! Clean restaurant and extremely friendly staff. Authentic Cajun food. Will be back!
RTs has been a favorite for decades. This lunch was no disappointment. The original owner's bouillabaisse is still on the menu (from time-to-time) and it's just as delicious, rich, and flavorful as ever. Cocktails are expertlyl-made and professionally presented. Service is attentive but not overbearing. It's still a favorite.
very tastefully decorated for US Thanksgiving as it it for all the holiday. Fabulous as always.
This place is the best. The food, service, and family environment is hard to match. Thanks for a great evening.
I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at RTs. Our table was ready when we arrived and everyone was friendly. Our server was very attentive and made a great recommendation for the Jack Daniels shrimp and crab appetizer. The food came out quickly and all of our dishes were good. We had the fried oysters, shrimp etouffe and the braised short ribs. Everything was delicious and the side of the honey sriracha brussel sprouts was tasty. Overall we had a great experience.
It had been many years since we had dined at this neighborhood gem. Fresh oysters, and a great, authentic gumbo. The roux was dark and coffee like with well spiced andouille sausage. The coconut cake soaked in rum for desert is a winner. The service was excellent.
Really enjoyed the Jack Daniel's appetizer - best seafood cream sauce that I've ever tasted!
Love this place!
Always a pleasure to eat there. Great menu and staff.
The food was good and plentiful! The menu has slightly changed since I was there but still some of my favorite creole infusion dishes.
Delicious food! Great service. We will return.
We are never disappointed when we dine at RT’s. This is a friendly neighborhood spot with great food, drinks and service. The people are always friendly and whatever meal you decide to get will be delicious. My go to spot!!
Outstanding food , great service and good value. RT's is always on repeat for us!
The food and service were great. We could actually speak to each other without shouting. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was delicious!!!
We hadn't been to RT's in quite some time, and we were so happy to be back. The food was delicious and the service perfect. We can't wait to go back.
Interesting and different menu, all nicely prepared and presented. This is a must for Cajun food lovers!
The bouillabaisse was outstanding as the daily special. As was the praline pecan pumpkin pie. They never disappoint.
RT's is a great neighborhood restaurant with wonderful service and consistently good food. The Death by Gumbo is our favorite!
Very good every time!
Beeneating there for years and it has never failed to be superb
Family members Birthday
I hate to say this but because of the pandemic, we had forgotten all about RTs! Sad as it’s the best of the restaurants within blocks of our home. Perhaps it was because we only like eating AT restaurants and not simply EATING restaurants’ food that we hadn’t been enjoying RT’s. I LOVE their jambalaya. And tonight’s Bouillabaisse was amazing. So much seafood! Plus its broth was awesome; took home the leftover broth using the complimentary rice to soaking it all up. That and the leftover jambalaya are going to make for a wonderful second meal.
So glad we got our Pfizer jabs plus the booster shots. 😇
Outstanding service, food & ambience! We'll be making a return visit the next time we're in DC!!! GOD Bless!!!!!!!!!
One of the first finest kitchens in DC area. Been going fir years and probably my favorite dinner place over the years.
We walked in to the bar area and was directed to the host stand to the right. We checked in for our reservation and we were seated promptly.
Not pictured: We started with the Jack Daniels crab and shrimp and calamari. Both were delicious. The bread was cold, so I didn't try that.
The service and food were really good. There are a few other dishes I want to try, so I definitely plan to return. The only thing I did not enjoy was the hurricane. It was just ok.
We sat at the Bar and had drinks and dinner. The bartender was very very friendly, attentive, informative and a very pleasant woman. The cocktails were good. The appetizers came fast and was very tasty. It took a little long to get our entrees but that was ok because we were enjoying the ambiance and once the food came we were not disappointed food, we loved every thing we order! Will definitely be back!
The food was excellent. Don’t get discouraged by the neighborhood. I’m from a costal city, so I know what fresh seafood taste like. It’s worth it!!! I will visit again when I visit the city. RT’s is on my list for favorite restaurants !!!! Enjoy
Spent a relaxing dinner with friends. Great food selection that always is tasty.
Great food. Great wait staff. Comfort food that is prepared better and tastes better than other well-known, highly-regarded restaurants I've dined at in DC.
Very nice . Will be back
I have been going to RT's for many years. The food is always excellent. The service is very good. The ambience is great too. I almost always get an etouffee and have never been disappointed. It is delicious and just spicy enough. I also love the key lime pie and often have it for dessert.
We decided to eat inside RT's this weekend after having had take out from it several times during lockdown. We were very happy with everything! Our server was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. We both had the shrimp appetizer, which was good, and shared the house salad which, with egg and hearts of palm, is always tasty. I had the RT's special crab with a baked potato which I always like, and my companion loved his jambalaya. It was a lovely evening!
RTs is an awesome restaurant. They serve Louisiana style seafood dishes to die for. I recommend the Smothered Catfish.
we have eaten there often. last night was not as good as usual. fewer specials than in the past, and the dishes we had all had the same sauce on them despite supposedly being different. wine list is weak and needs an upgrade
Our long time favorite special occasion restaurant was good as ever. We have moved to Florida, but still come back to the D.C. metro area often, and make it a point to visit all our friends at R.T.s. Great food and great people!
Great place!! Food was absolutely delicious- and service incredible!! Can’t wait to go back!!
