Steak had a funny flavor to it like it was oxidizing. Server knew we wanted to go because our six year old was ready for bed but she took another 30 minutes to get our check after it was placed out. Another server actually ran it. Not up to the par of Ruth’s Chris.

This place has gotten very busy, and there was a very long wait before we were seated (in spite of a reservation). The table wasn't ready when we were heading to it, and we waited about 20 minutes before were even offered water.

Once the service began, things got better. The food was amazing...with steaks cooked to perfection and melting like butter in our mouths.

I love this place, and I'll go back again. Hopefully, I won't be seated right behind a loud talking, swearing tipsy woman who was a hot mess.

I'd recommend this restaurant with the reservation that you might be seated next to anyone.

Great food and very good server. We were in the bar so the noise level was more than we liked in the beginning but it improved as it got later. It was a special evening and the server brought a celebration dessert which was very nice.

Great view of the area and airport combined with solid steak house, this place is always a great option for a nice dinner and occiasion. Service isn't always commensurate with the caliber and price of the restaurant, for example during my most recent visit the server was sloppy, forgot to offer bread, tried to upcharge us on menu items, and just seemed like he had somewhere else he wanted to be. The bar staff and hosts were fantastic, so still highly recommend.

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.
