the food was truly outstanding. the steaks were very juicy and tasty and cooked to order. the seafood was fresh, simply grilled and tasty. the appetizers, the salads and dessert were all excellent. service was pleasant....but inexperienced and not at the level of a high end steak/seafood establishment. overall experience was very good and i will definitely return.

The food was amazing as always. Our server, Tristan, was wonderful. He was very upbeat and friendly, not easy to do 45 min before closing time when you’ve been on your feet all day. The manager came over to check on us, as well as all the other tables. You don’t see that very often anymore. That shows she really cares about her customer’s experience.

The price point is a little higher than a lot of other restaurants with comparable steaks but it’s well worth it. More of a date night or special occasion.

Food was good, but this was our first time at Ruth Chris, and we were surprised at how expensive it was. Also many of the clientele were dressed very casually, and it was noisy in the restaurant.

The food was great. The waiter was either over loaded or not attending to us due to some other issues. Salad was served with entree. Desert took for ever as did the after dinner coffee. Thankfully, a waiter walking by noticed and helped out. It wasn’t that busy as this was a week night late dinner.

The food was fantastic.

Thank you Ruth Chris (Washington, DC) for playing a major part in the success of our Mother’s Day lunch. My Mother left no food on her plate and vowed to return soon. Oh, did I tell you it was her first time visiting your establishment? Great experience.
