This location has been our special occasion go-to for years. It's never disappoints. The food and view are worth the price and service exactly what you would want from an up scale restaurant.

Wonderful date night experience. We were very nervous because of the pandemic but they took so many precautions. Tables were far apart. Clean areas. All staff wore masks. No touch menus.

Our server and bartender was the best. Ashley was amazing and she made very good food choices for us. I will definitely be back just to sit in her section.

Fantastic service and food! Brian made us feel like family and made two new patrons comfortable, explaining some of the history of the chain and describing the steak preparation process and the menu. Love that view across to Reagan National Airport. It was even more enjoyable with a show of lightening bolts keeping us entertained. I appreciated the table bling recognizing the anniversary celebration, and the glass of complimentary sparkling wine. Felt very safe with all of the reasonable precautions in this COVID-19 environment. Overall, a great dining experience. And that’s why I keep coming back!

Outstanding as always. With a reduced menu and wine selection our server SAMI went and pulled the wine list to get our favorite wine. Truly great service and always great food.

Ruth's Chris has downgraded tremendously. Reasons;
1. Ambiance - No different than a Ruby Tuesdays now. For the price point, I might as well go to Ruby's or Fridays now. They are far more less expensive.

2. Probably because of some diversity or racial equality, their patrons were wearing shorts, flip flops, white tee shirts with saggy pants. Not to mention pink hair. It was ghetto! Was looking for an upscale place where there is a respectable dress code.

3. Steak over cooked, so had to retuen.
No mushrooms assa side right now. Irritating.

4. Told to take home menu if I touch it citing COVID-19. Had to walk in with mask, but could take it off once seated.

5. All this aggravation for a $265 meal. You can keep it!

The food was very good; steak was perfect. The service was inattentive. The lighting was too low in the main hallway. The valet parking was horrible— took too long to drop off and retrieve my car. They had only 2 guys trying to do everything.

Let me preface this by saying we eat at RUTH Chris in Crystal City frequently and have always enjoyed our meals. I speak for myself when I say last Friday I ordered the advertised King Crab Legs. What a disappointment! Looked like they took the smallest part of the legs and then cut them in half...not much for an entree. Plus having to remove small pieces of cartilage was very unpleasant. Would have done better ordering the small seafood tower at the same price. On the plus side, our waiter was delightful. I should have returned the dish.

Went for lunch on a Friday for a business meeting. Ordered the filet and king crab legs and the lobster bisque. The lobster bisque was ok and had a little lobster meat in it but I have had better soups, especially when this was tagged in the menu as one of Ruth’s favorites. Filet was medium rare, ordered medium - that’s fine, I still ate it and it was good but it was just a good piece of meat with salt and pepper. The waiter asked how everything was but I didn’t want to send it back because I was hungry and didn’t want to wait for them to reheat my half eaten filet. The king crab legs were nothing fancy either and were on cracked half shells so you could just grab the meat. Again, nothing fancy just steamed crab legs with drawn butter. For $59, I wasn’t impressed and the meal came with no sides or anything else, just table bread. The star of the shoe was the creme brulee which was really, really good.

It was Friday lunch, I think there were 14 diners and about 6 waiters. The waiters were not busy at all and worked as a team as I saw three or four different ones. They were just all over us, constantly interrupting our eating and conversation to check in on us and to ask how everything was. It was annoying as hell, there is just no reason to smother someone like that when they are trying to eat. So, the service was good but it was so good I had to dock them a star.

It was just an average experience for the high price. The view out the windows overlooking Reagan was spectacular. The food was ok, just nothing special, nothing to write home about or to make me want to come back and drop some serious cash on this again. I would go back for the creme brulee though, that was the best thing we had on the menu. My friend’s steak sandwich and fries looked good, perhaps I should have gotten that.

We booked few days early and asked for a table with airport view for a special occasion, we also called the same day to make sure we have a table with the view we wanted. we were put on waiting for around 15 the.n were given a table without that view. When we asked for another table, we waited for 20 more minutes.
Once food was put on the table all waiters disappeared and we had to look for anyone passing to ask for whatever we want or even for the dessert menu.
The food was good but not extraordinary.
All in all, experience was ok, but would not go again, especially for a celebration!
