Hospitality is a source of great pride for our company and when a guest feels that he or she has not received the service that is the hallmark of the Ruth’s Chris name, we take those assertions seriously. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention.

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.

This was a Mother's Day celebration with my mother, sister, daughter and niece. We couldn't have made a better selection for a restaurant. Our server, Lyneka, was absolutely amazing.

Great food, great service made for an amazing celebration.

If you’re looking for a quiet and intimate dining experience, do yourself a favor and bypass this location. I was extremely disheartened when I visited here. My family and I were there to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. We made reservations for a specific time, yet still had to wait an additional 30 minutes to be seated. Additionally, our party was separated, which was understandable, considering current COVID regulations, but it would’ve been nice to have been informed is this when I made the reservation.
The noise level was much louder than usual, and police had just arrived on the scene for a large party that attempted to ‘run out’ on their bill. The manager on duty looked frazzled, and clearly wasn’t equipped to handle all of the issues of the night; it showed all across his face.
We had been seated for over 20 minutes before our drink orders were even taken, and the waiter’s personality was extremely dry. Once we ordered food, it was close to another hour before our food came out. To add insult to injury, one of my family member’s entire order was overlooked so she was unable to eat with us.
Overall, it was the worst dining experience I’ve had at a Ruth’s Chris restaurant.

The waiter took more than 10-15 minutes to get to our table. If we are in a high-end steak house, I expect exceptional service. Food was great. The hostess was amazing. She came to see if we were happy. She was awesome, GM should be her next move.

Our visit to Ruth's Chris L Street location was impeccable. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were greeted by exceptional host who seated us right away. It was a party of 7 so we were seated at two separate tables due to the COVID restrictions. Our server Daryl, I believe that was his name, was the best ever. He managed our table as if we were his only customers. The other server "Mac" was the same. We didn't want to leave. We will be returning soon to request the same servers. Upon leaving, the manager walked us out and made sure we enjoyed our service.

Every time I’ve been to Ruths Chris it was very romantic vibes and seemed upscale and professional this particular location was very low end feeling the majority of the staff seemed like young kids not that anything is wrong with that but they weren’t very friendly and didn’t have manners. It definitely felt like I was in the city

You should know up front that it isn't cheap, but it is worth while if you are looking for an amazing steak. I never bother with sides. I'm just here for the gigantic slab of ribeye.

Up-scale prices, low-scale food.
The meat was obviously frozen and thawed - very watery.
The waiter brought over a white bottle of wine after we ordered a red. He was perplexed.
The waiter packed our bone-in ribeye in to-go boxes and did not include the bone.
Overall we were disappointed, and the food was very overpriced.
