As usual food was great. I would go just to smell the sizzling butter as the steak come out of the kitchen!

I’m also an aviation aficionado, so the views of DCA and the River are terrific.

Finally, our server Brian was Just right in terms of chatting and making us feel welcome, while not
Ignoring other tables and making sure we had everything we needed through the meal.

I’ve been a huge fan of Ruth’s steaks since I was 12. Yesterday was the first bad steak I’ve ever had at a Ruth’s Chris. The New York strip was severely over salted and was served with much more butter than usual, resulting in a palate wrecking richness that was akin to eating an entire birthday cake in one sitting. This overpowered the subtle flavor of the corn-fed beef that I look forward to from a Ruth’s steak. The staff was fantastic however and the views were great from the 11th floor.

It was great to be back. As usual, Teddy, our server and his team were great. Both our steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides were great. The sweet potato casserole is to die for. R's C is clearly back and better than ever. Looking forward to my next visit.

I love leaving reviews because it helps others experience the good in restaurants...and this Ruth's Chris is far the best one I've been to. If you go, Brian the waiter is very friendly and attends to your needs and offers the best suggestions the restaurants has to offer. The food is always amazing and the atmosphere/view was a plus. I will be going back.

Absolutely amazing! Very elegant atmosphere with amazing views of Reagan National Airport, the Potomac River and many DC landmarks. We were seated promptly upon our arrival and the staff had decorated our table with "Happy Birthday" confetti. A very nice touch from me simple stating in the reservation that we were celebrating my wife's birthday. Wait staff greeted us promptly and each staff member that visited the table wished my wife a happy birthday. Our head server, Milton, was incredible! He was very personable and made our experience exceptional! Food was incredible! Thank you to Ruth's Chris staff for an amazing experience!

Inattentive wait staff. After a recommendation of another entree, no one checked to ask how the meal was. My wife asked for a second glass of wine, but never received it. We received a water refill but there was a very long period of anyone checking on us.

The restaurant is pricey. However, it's worth every dime. Food is beyond outstanding. Wait time between ordering and receiving food is very short. Food is extra hot. Excellent and outstanding service. Love eating there. Will return as often as I can. Highly recommend for all. Fine dining at its best. I think portions are too much for small children.

Normally I would give Ruth’s an outstanding in every category, however this past experience was disrupted with a crying toddler sitting right next to us. I would recommend that this restaurant set up a different part of the restaurant for family friendly with kids so that the rest of us can enjoy the experience to carry on with business or pleasant conversations. Listening to screaming kid was very distracting in having a conversation with a colleague.
