Great food as usual. Waiter was a little slow checking in with us for the amount of people dining.
The food was incredibly delicious!
Great steak dinner. The sides, main course and dessert were amazing.
I had a wonderful experience. We had the Tomahawk. It was wonderful! Great service as well. We went 30 minutes earlier than planned with no issues being serviced.
I hadn’t been to Ruth Chris in years. I was expecting a little more for the price. Overall it was an okay meal, just not worth the price.
Great Saturday evening. Although we preferred a later time for dinner the earlier seating worked out fine. The wait staff - Amber - was wonderful. Thoughtful, did not rush us, filled our classes with water without asking asked us if we wanted bread and brought us back warm bread - usually the second loaf is cold. Lovely evening with delicious food and service
Three of us went to the restaurant, and we each ordered a different item: Ribeye steak, Sea Bass and T-bone steak. We each ahd a glass of wine. For dessert tow of us had a creme brulee and a bread pudding. The sea bass lacked having a slice or two of lemon on the plate. Everything well seasoned and tasted delicious. We had asparagus and mushroom sides as well. Service was impeccable and our server was Franck. It was a bit pricey, but we enjoyed the food, atmosphere. Don't let the price stop you from going and experiencing a nice evening out. We plan to go back again.
Sat at the bar. Same quality service and food!
not been to RuthChris for a while and wont be rushing back, always used to be a top experience not anymore, apathetic service, cold french fries, after main given desert menu, server comes back after 30 seconds to ask what we want asked him to give us a moment , and he did just that. Wanted calimari, they were out, then the 'icing on the cake', wanted New York Strip, they were out, alledgedly the pre-eminent steak eatery in the US and they dont have NYS, to be honest the steak we did get was good but the whole dining experience was underwhelming at best, for their price of dinner and wine I expect a tip top experience, this was not it
Lobster tails overpriced for what they were. Previously frozen and not
Fresh tasting at all!! Waitress was wonderful.
We were there to celebrate our 33rd Anniversary. The restaurant was perfect, the service was great and the food was outstanding as usual.
We have been coming to this location for over 20 years and always enjoy it; the food is always great & the service excellent. On this particular night there was a large engagement party that was obnoxiously loud. We did notice staff trying to keep the door closed to limit some of the noise.
Service was great. Food was good.
Prices are much high now!
Ruth Chris is always a go to spot for me. Food is always hot and cooked how you like it. The lamb is one of my favorites. The ambiance is always chill and service too notch.
We went to celebrate a family member birthday. Our waiter William provided great service and made us feel very welcome. Very good experience
Really terrific meal. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion!
It was celebrating my retirement, which I mentioned in my reservation, but there was no acknowledgement by the staff. Also I returned to the restaurant to retrieve my credit card which I believe I had inadvertently left and was told they did not have it. I received a call later that evening advising me that they did in fact, have my card. Other than that Food was good, service was fine.
Service was perfect from start to finish. Quality and temperature of steaks were delicious. Sides and Appetizers were ok.
Service was very good. They worked hard. The food was not good. The bone in filet was just not good. Shocking. And we ordered it medium rare and it was well done. Nothing special to their bread. The food overall is no longer special. Feels like it is made off site and then heated up on location. Ruth Chris needs to take a hard look at where it is today versus what it once was. The ambiance also was not great. I realize coming out of Covid has challenges but this feels fundamental and can see this brand on the decline. For this kind of quality food should be 50% less.
Thank you for your candid review. We hold ourselves to the highest brand standards for food quality and what you describe is not consistent with our standards. We will work hard to improve and appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
We were celebrating our daughters sweet 16 and I specifically asked for the table to be decorated in the reservation, upon arriving it was not. This is the second time this has happened at Bethesda location it happened last year for my birthday dinner.
Hector is great! I enjoy coming here. Very quick and great service.
Our server made a mistake with our order. We asked for two petit filets and a ribeye to go. He brought three filets, we said it was a mistake. He said he would give us a good price for the extra filet, and give us some vegetables.
About to leave, we checked our bag and he never gave us the ribeye, saying he had asked us if it was ok to change it for the filet. We never said so. He lied in front of the barman when we complained.
Please rest assured that in this Ruth's Chris, as well as all others, our intention is to provide the highest and finest quality with regard to both food and service, not to mention hospitality - much like Ruth would have done herself. We will address your concerns with our team and we hope you will give us another chance to serve you again in the future. Thank you!
Had a family dinner here while visiting the DC area. Best lobster Mac n cheese I've ever had. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Our server, William, was terrific. He was courteous, friendly and very helpful.
Our sever William was phenomenal. He went out of his way to take care of us, and he was very personable. Will definitely come back and ask for him.
Sent the spicy shrimp back because they weren’t crispy but was taken care of right away
Service and food never disappoint at Ruth's and the Bethesda location is no exception.
We're delighted that Ruth's Chris has re-opened in Bethesda. We absolutely love their food - but WOW have their prices gone up since we were there last, pre-pandemic. It's no longer a place we can afford to go except for the most special occasion, or a business meal.
We celebrated our grandson’s HS graduation. They placed grad confetti on the table, providing a celebratory ambiance.
The only negative was the crab cakes had too much breading and no large lumps of crab nor crisp on both sides.
I regularly entertain clients in other cities at Ruth’s Chris with good service. But tonight was special occasion at my hometown location for my daughter’s 21st birthday.
We were seated right next to the wait stand in a tight booth for four despite the restaurant being less than half full. That tells me they think I’m not likely to be a repeat client. We had to repeatedly ask for dishes to be cleared from the table through our multiple courses.
The food was delicious as always, but I won’t be back to this location again.
Celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. Service and food was awesome!
William was our server. Wonderful evening. Great service.
Poor service. Steak blood red when ordered medium well. No apologies for issue. Had to flag down server to get drink refills, check, missing food items.
Thank you for your candid review. We hold ourselves to the highest brand standards for both food quality and service we wish we'd made a better impression. Your valuable feedback has been shared with the local team for review. We appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you in again soon.
I have the food four stars as opposed to five only because the wedge salad we ordered had some slightly brown lettuce. But the main course of filets was exceptional. Very well cooked, cooked exactly as ordered (medium done well for my wife and for me medium well was also done correctly).
The meat was perfectly seasoned as well no need for salt or pepper. The service was excellent, and we got a free cake at the end when we told our server it was my wife’s birthday. Very nice. The parking is quite convenient usually plenty around the block. They also evidently had valet service as well if that’s desired (didn’t think they would because of the pandemic). Overall a wonderful dining experience which we intend to repeat.
Overall good experience, we enjoyed dining out at this restaurant and highly recommend.
Had a good time. The stuffed mushrooms were all filler, hardly any crabmeat but other than that the food was delicious! Had the best waiter also.
It was my first time dining out since 2019 so I was very anxious about going butttt because it was my husband's birthday I gathered up my courage to go. Waite staff attentive and a good time was had by all.
Great Birthday dinner.
We have dined here and at other sites many times. This as the first time our waiter was sub-par. He came by not long after we sat down but we had eaten the whole loaf of bread (someone else dropped it off) before we saw him again. He had not even taken our drink orders so I have no idea where he was. The room was far from full. He was not very attentive at all and spoiled our anniversary dinner. Food was great as always and perfectly cooked steak per our instructions, just bad service.
