It was Thanksgiving and understandable that the restaurant was busy. However I noticed that there was a lot of staff that was hired for the special anticipated day. But service was still very slow. We did not get attention when we arrived for about 10 minutes before we were offered drinks or shown the menu. And that went on through the night we had to wait several minutes to catch our server’s attention and for our request to arrive.

We were sat next to a party of 12 people who were so loud we could not hear ourselves in an attempt to have conversation over dinner. We were a small group of 3 and there was plenty of other tables, yet we were placed next to this large group with unrelenting volume for the entire 60 plus minutes of our dining experience. The manager, Mike, apologized, a couple of times, but that didn't really compensate for the unsettling atmosphere, nor seemed to really care. Prior to arrival for our reservation, we were notified of the dress code, therefore, we expected that the patrons were of that caliber. The food was good and the waitress was also good. I would definitely look for other options instead of Ruth's Chris Steak House.

The restaurant needs to correct the address and menu on website. It was difficult to find since we did have correct address. Food was good. Service was excellent.

The steak was excellent as always however we ordered the sweet potato casserole which was excellent and the mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were horrible!!! I’m so surprised that Ruth Chris would have something that tasted worse than Kentucky fried Chicken. The potatoes were supposed to have garlic in them but it tasted bland. The consistency was of boxed potatoes. This dish needs to be revamped.

Our waiter was Daryn and he was great! He was very knowledgable about the menu and steered us towards the right choices. Although we are visiting DC, we're always have a great time at any Ruth's Chris we dine at.

I took a friend to Ruth's Chris Steak House for dinner for their birthday. They selected this restaurant. I do not eat steak but have found that most steak restaurants have really good seafood. My friend ordered the surf and turf. The waitress recommended the garlic crusted sea bass for me. My friend really enjoyed their meal. I found the garlic crusted sea bass to be very tasty. It was served on a bed of cooked spinach. I order a bake potato as a side. This had to be the largest baked potato I have ever seen. I ended up eating 1/3 of it and taking the rest home. The garlic crusted sea bass was well prepared. It was juicy and very tasty. The bread they serve is also delicious. It is crusty and warm. Kudos to the chef! I highly recommend this restaurant. My only critique is that it is listed as 2001 K St NW. It is actually on 21st and L. The address needs to be updated.

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.
