It's always a pleasure to eat at this Ruth's Chris location. The staff is great and Kimberly, one of the managers, is always extremely pleasant. My friend's steak was overcooked and our waiter Ken promptly made sure she received a new steak properly cooked. It was a great experience as always which is why I keep going back.

Service was slow and we sat by the kitchen and had to deal with the smell of marijuana each time the kitchen door opened. That was disappointing and ruined our meal

The sweet potato casserole was mainly all toppings & no potatoes. My steak was cooked almost burnt on the outside & more reddish on the inside for my liking. The waiter did a very job & the hostess were extremely friendly

Celebrating my 25th Wedding Anniversary with my lovely wife. Everything was perfect from the staff to the food. They created an enjoyable evening with decorations and custom menus. The food is always excellent and memorable. The manager made sure our evening went smoothly. Will definitely be back and highly recommend to anyone looking for an great night out.

Top notch steak. There are few other reasons to eat there. Ambiance is outdated, but service is good and place is typically accessible, even without reservations.

We got there 15 minutes early and we're accommodated without waiting. The food was amazing, as always, but the customer dress code was far from enforced. People were wearing hats, hoodies, white tees, etc.

We were lucky to be served by Chris (not the owner). Chris is a server and he is a bartender. Just the perfect combination of professional, accommodating, funny and witty. Perfect. The restaurant manager came by to say hello, too. We have never been to this location before. We enjoyed lovely meals previously at the "Convention Center" Ruths Chris before it closed this past Christmas time. We had no idea that this location has been her for over 20 years. Really nice. We will come here again and again when we are in town.

Rude and dry hostess. In an almost empty restaurant, she seats us by the bathroom. Asked to move. The side order of six piece sautaed shrip was three and burnt to a black crisp on one side. When I complained, they brought me another three, almost raw. My wife's medium prime ribeye showed up medium-rare, at best and still tough to eat - hardly a "choice" cut. Never again. At $100 per person, there have to be enter options in DC. Never again.

Comfortable place overall, the booths are a little small and cramp. The servers were good. Not too noisy considering we were in the bar area. Easy location to get by public transportation. Food was tasty. Our steaks were cooked the way we asked. Service started out slow because they had just started dinner hour and had one waiter in the beginning

Food was excellent but service was horrible. I had to ask for everything (more wine, utensils, dessert, the bill, etc.). It’s just annoying to go somewhere nice for my boyfriend’s birthday and not feel taken care of by the server. He didn’t try at all and I was more than willing to order a bottle of wine but had to basically track him down just to get a glass. It was rough leaving a tip at the end of the night.

Waited 50 minutes for our meal to arrive only for the server to say my sons steak was on the pass and he was going back to fetch it straight away. 10 minutes had passed and still no meal for my son so he we had to complain. The steaks were cooked wrong, we requested medium but 2 of them were rare and one was blue. There were no sizzling plates as you usually get in Ruth Chris’s. I’ve never experienced this before and was so disappointed!
After complaining the manager went above and beyond to make sure we were happy but for me it was ruined the minute our table didn’t get the food at the same time to eat together.

Ruth's Chris is always great for special occasions, and the design of this location has many cozy niches for quiet/romantic dinners as well as space for larger parties. The flavor and temperature of the steaks were excellent, as expected, and the butternut squash soup was outstanding. Service was friendly and professional, but the timing was off, as the table had finished the starter course before drinks arrived.

Made a reservation for a romantic anniversary dinner for two and the hostess took care of details; prepared customized menus and a beautifully decorated table with a hand-written anniversary message. The appetizer and meal was exceptional. Thanks for a perfect anniversary dinner!

First, let me say that our waiter did the best he could despite his circumstances. This was clearly a managerial screw up. Our waiter had a very large group, I didnt count them, but it was at least 10+, and they were very demanding. We were neglected for the most part. Which is fine at Dennys, not Ruth's Chris. I expect the same attention as the next table. My mother's steak was supposed to be well done (i know this is the least favorite) it was medium, and not butterflied like she asked for, and other RCs have no problem doing (even if it does ruin the steak), my steak, which was ordered medium rare, came out rare. My lobster tails, were over cooked. I would have ordered another drink had we been asked in a timely manner, same for dessert.

Again, this isnt the waiter's fault. The manager should have been observing the needs of the other table being overwhelming, and seen to it that we also had Ruth's Chris level of service.
