    Ruth Chris is one of the best steak house in DC and we have a lot to choose from. Our ribeye steaks were so flavorful and cooked to perfection. Our sides were great, especially the creamed spinach. Service was on point especially the bartender (sorry can’t remover just name) but super nice and friendly guy and Kennya our server!

    The food and service were amazing as I’m accustomed to, but the bar/waitress were unable to get a mixed drink correct after two attempts. It was likely due to the higher than expected noise levels in the restaurant. I will opt for another location next time I visit another Ruth’s.

    First of all the address listed on Open table is their mailing address not the physical address. I called literally 12 times over 15 minutes before somebody would answer the phone and tell me where to find them. They said they were crazy crazy busy but there were plenty of open tables. It took an hour to get one steak and a salad. We had to ask three or four times to start off with water. The waitress came over to check on us a three quarters of an hour into and asked if everything was all right and I said not really we haven’t gotten anything yet. The steak was delicious the chopped salad was over salted and not very good. At 9:30 at night it didn’t seem like rush-hour not the best experience for Ruth Chris.

    First visit to this location (21st and L) even though it is a block from my office. Hopefully, they will open for lunch soon. Loved the decor, including great lighting, soft but not so dark you could not see. The food was excellent, we both had the filet and brussel sprouts. The wine choices were great and the service excellent. I am sorry I do not remember the server's name, but he was on it.

    A nice touch of happy birthday decorations and a comp’d dessert for our son. Very nice hard working staff, one dirty menu and some elaborate clearing techniques, all ok, but the food was not perfect. Steaks were tender but dry, creamed spinach lacked nutmeg, creme brûlée was pasty/gummy not fresh and light and creamy, similar comment on the cheesecake. Food was past prime..

    All the food was over cooked. Even ordered a steak blue rare and it came back medium. They never delivered our course desert. We got annoyed enough and just paid our bill and left.
