Service not up to par especially since there were not many people. Slow and not intuitive. Disappointing! Corrected steak temperature so was happy with that.

The food was very good; steak was perfect. The service was inattentive. The lighting was too low in the main hallway. The valet parking was horrible— took too long to drop off and retrieve my car. They had only 2 guys trying to do everything.

Let me preface this by saying we eat at RUTH Chris in Crystal City frequently and have always enjoyed our meals. I speak for myself when I say last Friday I ordered the advertised King Crab Legs. What a disappointment! Looked like they took the smallest part of the legs and then cut them in half...not much for an entree. Plus having to remove small pieces of cartilage was very unpleasant. Would have done better ordering the small seafood tower at the same price. On the plus side, our waiter was delightful. I should have returned the dish.

Went for lunch on a Friday for a business meeting. Ordered the filet and king crab legs and the lobster bisque. The lobster bisque was ok and had a little lobster meat in it but I have had better soups, especially when this was tagged in the menu as one of Ruth’s favorites. Filet was medium rare, ordered medium - that’s fine, I still ate it and it was good but it was just a good piece of meat with salt and pepper. The waiter asked how everything was but I didn’t want to send it back because I was hungry and didn’t want to wait for them to reheat my half eaten filet. The king crab legs were nothing fancy either and were on cracked half shells so you could just grab the meat. Again, nothing fancy just steamed crab legs with drawn butter. For $59, I wasn’t impressed and the meal came with no sides or anything else, just table bread. The star of the shoe was the creme brulee which was really, really good.

It was Friday lunch, I think there were 14 diners and about 6 waiters. The waiters were not busy at all and worked as a team as I saw three or four different ones. They were just all over us, constantly interrupting our eating and conversation to check in on us and to ask how everything was. It was annoying as hell, there is just no reason to smother someone like that when they are trying to eat. So, the service was good but it was so good I had to dock them a star.

It was just an average experience for the high price. The view out the windows overlooking Reagan was spectacular. The food was ok, just nothing special, nothing to write home about or to make me want to come back and drop some serious cash on this again. I would go back for the creme brulee though, that was the best thing we had on the menu. My friend’s steak sandwich and fries looked good, perhaps I should have gotten that.

The table was strewn with Happy Birthday confetti when we were seated. The food was delicious. Tables are very close together so it lacked any feeling of privacy.

We booked few days early and asked for a table with airport view for a special occasion, we also called the same day to make sure we have a table with the view we wanted. we were put on waiting for around 15 the.n were given a table without that view. When we asked for another table, we waited for 20 more minutes.
Once food was put on the table all waiters disappeared and we had to look for anyone passing to ask for whatever we want or even for the dessert menu.
The food was good but not extraordinary.
All in all, experience was ok, but would not go again, especially for a celebration!

Poor service, overcooked meats, super small plates so there is no room to cut your steak or put your sides , dining room had a hotel banquet room feeling

Our dining experience was on Valentine’s Day. We got the porterhouse for two with an additional side. We had wine as well.
Patrick was our server. He was excellent and attentive. A little slow due to the crowd but overall outstanding. The steak was excellent and temperature was hot. The sides were underwhelming and barely room temperature. We didn’t get our starters until our server came to our table a half hour after receiving our drinks and asked if we received them yet.

I love all Ruth's Chris that I have visited DC to Cancun. The Arlington location is still nice, but I miss the old decor. I love the high back seats that you guys use to have, but definitely not a deal breaker for me!! Love me some Ruth's Chris, keep up the good work!!

Valentine’s Day 2020; enjoyed outing. 3 persons, $250 later, plus tip. We only had 3 Ribeye steaks with sides, no alcoholic beverages. So at $300, value should have been better. They give $25 coupons to come back, but that’s IF you get back there. They got their $$
