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.

Arlington Ruth Chris Restaurant is our `Go-To' restaurant in the DC Metro area. The individual who keeps us coming back is Teddy, our Server of a number of years in the bar seating area. Our recent visit was to celebrate my wife's birthday, and Teddy made it a nice evening for us. We always appreciate his special care and service, and because of that we will be back agin soon! Thanks ARC and Teddy for a great evening! Sincerely, Scott & Nancy

Unfortunately, I couldn't give them a full 5-star rating. The service was PHENOMENAL ("Brian"), the food...delicious as usual, great atmosphere and ambiance; however, the lack of professionalism of the hostess didn't sit well with me. I've eaten at a few Ruth Chris' location across the country and by far, and by no stretch of the imagination, my experience with the hostess of this location was the worst. Her laissez-faire demeanor was quite evident from the moment I reach the hostess booth. As if she's doing was me a favor greeting me (Not really a greeting, but ok). I know we all have bad days and maybe she was experiencing a bad day or a bad moment. Sadly, she chose the wrong time to display it. Fortunately, the service of Brian and others made up for her shortcomings.

This location has changed a lot after the pandemic. The hostess was rude, but the server was amazing. There were so many children, a few of whom should not be allowed to be in a restaurant like this. They asked an adult to remove his hat, but said nothing to the parents about their shrieking children. I left before I even finished my dessert. Not the nice, special occasion place it once was.

Food was amazing! Unfortunately, my silverware was disgusting and had to be replaced. It was a complete turnoff for me at the start of my meal. I did not expect to have to worry about dirty silverware at a fine dining steak house. Also, the waiter never refilled my water or asked if we wanted more drinks. It was not the service I am accustomed to. The food was amazing but I will not return to this specific establishment.

We chose to go to Ruth’s Chris for our 17th Anniversary. We were sat in the back corner of the restaurant by the kitchen, pick up station for bar drinks, bar ice machine, and little view. Our server and food was excellent. We were told the drinks and wine were on the back of the menu. There were two prices next to each wine selection. Assuming this was the wine list we settled on a $60 “bottle” of wine not knowing that this list was just the glass and 9oz pour list. We should have looked more closely but ended up spending over $200 on two bottles of wine. When we spoke with the manager after paying and truly expecting nothing, we were completely blown off. As former restaurant workers and with a dream of opening a restaurant ourselves, We felt we should share our experience especially after spending almost $500 on the meal. It was truly a disappointment and unfortunately there are other options for dining in our anniversary that we should have explored. We will not be returning.
