49th Anniversary. The restaurant had a lovely table that was set aside for us and decorated with sparkles and a card from the establishment. They recognize that we have been there before and our server, William, was perfectly attentive.

We were one of two maybe three tables in the restaurant.
Service was woeful.
Seafood towers presentation was not up Ruth Chris's standard.
Failed to bring small plates for the seafood appetizer.
I had to literally wave after 3 minutes of no employees in sight to get small plates.
Steaks were overcooked and the asparagus were mushy and stringy.
Probably my 20th meal in this location.

He was Conscientious, knowledgeable & efficient. My best friend & I had a great time. We would definitely come again! Not to mention, William helped me find my phone. Thanks Will!

Delayed my fiancé birthday dinner because he wanted his niece to be there to celebrate with him so I did just that and we selected Ruth’s Chris Bethesda location since we had not been then in a very long time. Yesterday (early) evening was great. The service and drinks were good, however, I and my future sister-in-law ordered a Caesar salad but the lettuce was not fresh and it appeared to be old looking and then his niece ordered the lobster tail entree compliment with her crab cakes and she ate a small portion and it had a smelly/fishy smell (old/no fresh). Even though the two salads and the lobster entree compliments were removed from our bill the evening still turned out great. Loved the extra touch to the table....with Happy Birthday confetti sprinkle over the
table.

Had a fun time celebrating three birthdays on this special occasion night out. Enjoyed our cocktails and wine in an intimate booth perfect for 4. The steaks (3 filets and 1 ribeye) were cooked perfectly medium rare and were delicious. We shared the creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin which were nice too. Our birthday guests each received a lovely complimentary dessert along with confetti and a card. As the person picking up the rather large check, I was a little frustrated by the waitress who kept suggesting upgrades and the most expensive items on the menu (e,g, seafood tower, high-priced wine, extra steak toppings, bone-in steaks, etc.). All in all, it was a very nice evening and the two individuals who had not been to a RC restaurant before were impressed.

We had a wonderful wedding anniversary dinner at Ruth's Chris in Bethesda. Thanks to William for his great service--he was kind, attentive, and the good service made our dinner extra special. We started off with the stuffed mushrooms, then had the leek soup, and I had the ribeye and lobster tail. The ribeye was cooked to a perfect medium-rare. We splurged and had a bottle of the Lan Culmen--I'd highly recommend it if you're not looking at the price. Thanks again for a great anniversary dinner!

I’ve eaten at a lot of steakhouses and this experience was by far, okay at best.
First, I thought the hostess was rude. Then we were seated at an uncomfortably small table. The waiter was good, but kinda disappeared towards the end.
We were told the Cesar salad was enough to split between two people... it was tiny. The tomato and mozzarella salad was good.
Steaks were perfect. Shoestring potatoes were cold, mashed potatoes were gummy and Brussels were undercooked.
For a family of four, the bill was close to $500. With tip.

So many better steakhouses. I wouldn’t go back to this location.

The server was excellent. We were there on a Saturday night with my daughter and wife. I forget the servers name tag but he was a very responsive gentleman and helpful. He wasn't pushy with the food but did recommend selections to us.
