Were seated quickly and well attended. Our server Milton was attentive without being overbearing. Have been to Morton’s and other area steak houses and was impressed with great service and valet service. Only negative was Barbeque shrimp which we ordered for my daughter and found it was way too salty and lacking in flavor. Again..kudos to the staff..had an 80 year old sister who kept dropping stuff and the never blinked. Keep Milton around!

My wife and I went to Ruth’s Chris for our date night. We did have an enjoyable time. We’ve been going to this location for years now. Over the years I’ve noticed a change in the patrons that come to the restaurant. It used to be a time when you would go and you’d be sitting next to a lawyer or a doctor; it would be someone professional or someone who had a little class. They would be wearing a suit or at least a suit jacket and collared shirt. Now you could wind up sitting next to someone wearing Air Jordan’s, a pair of timberlands or sweats. On the website it states that the dress code is “business casual”. I wish that they would enforce the dress code then it would have an impact on the type of people that dine there. I’m also sure it would have an impact on the ambiance. It would definitely have an impact on the maturity level. It just makes for an all around good dining experience. When you go someplace nice, you should dress nice. We will be going back to this location because of the nice views. However hopefully the chain will take my advice so as not to be dining with someone wearing the new Lebron’s.

Delicious meal, slightly loud, my steak was undercooked but quickly resolved and a discount certificate to return.

Food was as amazing as always and our server was attentive, but it took much longer to get our entrees then it should have. Roughly 45 minutes between our salads and entrees.

Manfredo (hope I have name correct) is our favorite waiter. He is attentive and seems to remember us each time. Leonard, who was working with him, was equally as attentive and professional. They are a great team.

How does a restaurant with Ruth's Chris 's reputation not be able to cook a medium rare ribeye? Sent it back once and still came back over cooked and uneven.

I wasn't entirely impressed with this location this visit. However, I do not judge this location or establishment on one evening. I have traditionally enjoyed great food and service here. Our server seemed to be more preoccupied with other things and service was slower than usual. The steak wasn't prepared as well as normal. However, I still will come back. It was a Monday and that usually isn't the best of evenings to go out to dinner.

Party of 6. Dress code seemed strange and inconsistent but “STRICT” for a Saturday especially. Once seated, table was wobbly & unstable and we had to REQUEST to be moved. Sweet pots casserole was COLD. Family style, so we all ate the cold side (which thankfully was just one of 8) bc it was tasty, but it would have been better warm.

This is the place to enjoy a great meal in conjunction with a special occasion. Though they have a dress code, many people think blue jeans is acceptable attire. How tragic. Regardless, what a great place with tremendous staff!

Ruth Chris is my husband's favorite restaurant. However, we normally go for special occasions because of the cost. However, this time we went for Restaurant Week, which I went online and made reservations from the Restaurant Week website and it took me through Open Table. To much surprise when we arrived at the restaurant, we were told that they do not participate in Restaurant Week. So I was not happy about that because we had to go outside of what was budgeted. Also, we normally order Cajun seasoning on our steaks, but that night we were told they do not have it. Outside of the disappointing news, the service and food was good a usual. Probably would have been better if it was what we expected.

My girlfriend and I went here for our second anniversary. Was a wonderful dinner with very friendly staff until our server decided to hit on my girlfriend as I using the bathroom (of course he took the check too before she could tell me). You'd think that workers at an establishment like Ruth's Chris would have more couth. The food was excellent but most of the steakhouses around here are just as good and I've never encountered problems like this elsewhere. I'll probably just go to one of the Ruth's Chris locations in DC next time. Its truly a shame because the dining room has a beautiful view of the DC area. Oh well.

The views were amazing and so were the crab cakes. The steak was not the best, filet had a lot of fat. Overall we were happy and enjoyed everything except the filet. Will try something else on the menu the next time.
