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.

My server Teddy was awesome. However, the hostess was very rude and not friendly at all. I have dined at Ruth Chris many times and would have to say this was my worst experience. I normally eat my leftovers and the food was not that good. The leftovers are still sitting in my refrigerator which I plan on throwing away. I asked for a fillet mignon and the piece of steak I received was definitely not a fillet. The meat was very fatty. The baked potato normally comes on a hot plate with melted butter and this time that did not happen. When you spend money on food especially at a restaurant like Ruth Chris I expect the food to be delicious for the amount of money spent and the staff to be more friendly. This may be my last time dining at your restaurant.

Initial call to confirm post reservation, employee Melody or Melanie was rude. Also, unable to guarantee window seat since seating is now first come first serve regardless of reservation. Waiter insisted no sub even for upcharge fee of side dish from Ruth Classics menu. Stated, we don’t offer this option since Covid, but later agreed to comply and charge the additional fee, which was fine. Definitely not the impeccable service I’m accustomed to with Ruth’s.
