 (Washington DC)·Dined 6 days ago

The food and service was its usual fine quality, but there is nothing exciting about this restaurant. The steak is excellent and that’s what it is, an excellent steakhouse, nothing more.

Jess was our server and she did a great job making us feel welcome!! We were celebrating our sons birthday and they made it very special. The food is always great. The restaurant is so warm and cozy and is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. What a great presentation for a birthday!!!

food was excellent. Server was not exactly what we would expect at a restaurant like RC. Jumped between tables midway through taking our order, took a long time to bring small items and drinks. He was nice enough, but not the formal dining waiter we expected.

We have been to several other Ruth's Chris locations in Maryland and this was one of the nicest. The service and food were excellent. This location had a very comfortable feel about it, made more so by the staff. Kurstin, our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Will definitely revisit this location the next time. Oh and the manager was walking around to various tables and giving Ruth's Chris oven mitts with giftcards inside! Definitely a nice New Year Eve's bonus!

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere for a great meal on New Year’s Eve and I decided on Ruth’s Chris because we celebrated our anniversary there last summer. Incredible service and outstanding food. Jess was our server and, she was very nice and provided us with us with phenomenal service!! We will dine there again, soon!!

In general the quality of the steaks have been declining in our recent visits. We choose to try Ruth's Christ again, on a very cold night, since they have valet parking. My steak was tough and grisly, with limited flavor. Only ate about half and left the rest. A manager stopped by or table, inquiring how we liked our meal. After a brief description, as to the quality of the steak, the manager said "I am sorry" while walking away. Never saw her again.
When spending $15.50 for a vodka followed by a tough steak, a better steak and value can be found at Lewnes Steak House, Ruth's Chris neighbor.

I wish that I could be writing a better review for the price we paid, but the evening was only so-so. Ambiance marred by being seated next to door to bar area (noisy when door opened and moderate amount of server traffic in and out; next time would ask to be seated away from bar). The 6 ounce filet was medium and somewhat dry rather than medium rare, probably due to being too thin to properly cook perfectly, and probably should have ordered a thicker cut with the 8 ounce size. The rib eye was perfectly done, quite juicy and flavorful. Brussel sprouts and shoestring fries were both quite good and plenty to share for both of us. Although the bread pudding and cheesecake desserts were fine, they were not "memorable".

Christmas Eve dinner. Our server, Jess,
did not tell us about any specials, make any suggestions at all. Pretty much gave us the menu and that was it. The server at the next table was much better. My spouse and I just looked at each other like “they got the good server”.
I hate going there in the winter. Every time the front door opens there is a blast of cold air throughout the restaurant. You need to wear your coat. Don’t know why they don’t keep the door at the top of stairs closed.
Food was good.

The entrees were amazing and cooked to perfection on a very busy occasion. Ruth’s Chris came through and provided us a fantastic dining experience.

Server brought wrong steak, to my fault I ate it knowing it was not a strip, lots of fat even for a. Rib eye. I did comment and that is when the mistake was discovered. I was offered a free steak to go, still, the rib eye was very fatty. I was with my son for a weekend polo match at the Naval Academy, having a great weekend, so I really did not want to complain much and spoil the evening.
We are frequent, long time diners of Ruth Chris, this was not up to par.

Overall was a nice experience, but food and service could have been better. Usually, when dining at Ruth’s Chris, we’ve had absolute excellent food and service. We ordered the porterhouse for two and the steak was very marbled with tough fat and our fries were delivered to our table cold. Our server was very busy and would disappear for very long period of times.

Very disappointed. I’ve been to many Ruth’s chris and this was by far the worst. The food was ok. Oysters were dry, steaks were dry, sides were pretty good but nothing special. The service was slow and Non existent, always waiting for refills. We waited at least half an hour for the table to be cleared of finished plates. Simple things, I asked for ice cream on the side of my microwaves soggy apple pie and got it right on top, not allowing me to take it home like I planned. No big deal, but it tasted and looked like something from a buffet. Every time something cAme to be delivered to the table, it was delivered to the wrong person at the the table. They were not on their ‘A’ game whatsoever. It felt rushed and at the same time, service took forever. I am a capital grille fan, always will be after this. This was also not helpful that we were a table
Of 3 in a small room of 2 large parties of 10 or more. Nice room with a Fireplace but seemed like we were in a private space.

Not as upscale as we remember (though our last experience at a Ruth's Chris was nearly 10 years ago). It lacked the formality and well executed experience of previous meals (at other locations). There was a large table seated with 6-7 children (7-12apx)and two adults. They were very loud, though their parents tried (and largely failed) to maintain order- not the romantic atmosphere we were hoping for. Our steaks were cooked to request and were of the quality one would expect at a restaurant that centers their menu upon it. Sides were simple, unremarkable. The desserts, which claim to be house made, were gigantic and totally lacking character. Although the staff were very friendly, the restaurant on a whole seemed to be skating by, holding onto the well established reputation of the Ruth's Chris name.

Very disappointed in this Ruth’s Chris location. Other than good beef the meal was below par. Brussels sprouts lacked seasoning & under cooked. Crab fried rice strange. Mashed potatoes cold. Ginger carrot soup & beet salad excellent. Not a great meal given the prices. Much better steak houses in town; won’t go back.

Great meal: Ruth’s Classic with ribeye. Service was not the fastest. Waited a bit long for bread (barely lukewarm) and out of Daniel Cohn Cabernet Sauvignon, so waited longer for Hess. Ribeye and mashed potatoes we’re excellent! However, I did not much enjoy the apple pastry (dry/not flaky) and vanilla ice cream. Regardless, I enjoyed the meal and will continue to frequent this location.
