The waiter didn’t come to our table to wait on us so we went to the bar. This was the first time I visited this location and the last.

Loud noise from Bar into Dinner area. Unwelcoming waiter fo making tablea and Table water. Friendly waiter for serving food though. Steak was not that good quality meat. Nice winelist for wines per glass. Comparing to other visits to Ruth’s Chris steakhouse this was not the finest.

Waited for 10 minutes for a table in the almost completely empty dining room. After being led to our table, hostess discovered the table had not been set. We were asked to wait for 2 minutes. 10 minutes later, the hostess set the table herself. We sat and waited on a server for 10 more minutes. He appeared and realized we didn’t have menus. At this point we decided to leave. It was clear from the moment we entered the restaurant that it was not going to live up to our expectations. Amazingly bad experience for restaurant week.

Never a disappointment. We had a late reservation but our event ended early so we decided to see if they would seat us early, the manager went out of her way to bring out chairs for the bar so we could be seated. The Bartenders were all EXCELLENT...Christian,Aaron and Jasmine! They never missed a beat! The food was served quickly and was on point! This has to be my favorite location thus far.

Food was great! Steak was cooked perfectly and love the restaurant week menu and choices. However, our waitress provided poor service with no apologies. Not that she had an attitude, very polite, but very very very slow. An hour dinner, turned into two and half ours. Even took 20 minutes to pick up check. That is ridiculous!

As a restaurant, Ruth Chris has always been an all-time favorite of my wife and mine. However, although we've been to other locations, the Connecticut Avenue location in DC seems to shine by having the best food and ambiance of all, as well as the greatest service! We usually visit on our most special occasions and try to get in a few more visits for date nights and whenever we have an overwhelming taste for a great Ruth Chris steak. Our most recent visit was during Restaurant Week in DC and their special menu included a trio of steak, crab cake, and stuffed chicken, which was absolutely amazing. All three were sheer perfection! They really should consider making the trio available all the time! Ruth Chris will always be one of our #1 spots to visit for the very best of fine dining!

Truly enjoyed my meal at this restaurant. Our server was fantastic. We sat by the window and really enjoyed being able to view the city activity during the afternoon.
