We're delighted that Ruth's Chris has re-opened in Bethesda. We absolutely love their food - but WOW have their prices gone up since we were there last, pre-pandemic. It's no longer a place we can afford to go except for the most special occasion, or a business meal.
We celebrated our grandson’s HS graduation. They placed grad confetti on the table, providing a celebratory ambiance.
The only negative was the crab cakes had too much breading and no large lumps of crab nor crisp on both sides.
I regularly entertain clients in other cities at Ruth’s Chris with good service. But tonight was special occasion at my hometown location for my daughter’s 21st birthday.
We were seated right next to the wait stand in a tight booth for four despite the restaurant being less than half full. That tells me they think I’m not likely to be a repeat client. We had to repeatedly ask for dishes to be cleared from the table through our multiple courses.
The food was delicious as always, but I won’t be back to this location again.
Celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. Service and food was awesome!
William was our server. Wonderful evening. Great service.
Poor service. Steak blood red when ordered medium well. No apologies for issue. Had to flag down server to get drink refills, check, missing food items.
Thank you for your candid review. We hold ourselves to the highest brand standards for both food quality and service we wish we'd made a better impression. Your valuable feedback has been shared with the local team for review. We appreciate your feedback and hope to welcome you in again soon.
I have the food four stars as opposed to five only because the wedge salad we ordered had some slightly brown lettuce. But the main course of filets was exceptional. Very well cooked, cooked exactly as ordered (medium done well for my wife and for me medium well was also done correctly).
The meat was perfectly seasoned as well no need for salt or pepper. The service was excellent, and we got a free cake at the end when we told our server it was my wife’s birthday. Very nice. The parking is quite convenient usually plenty around the block. They also evidently had valet service as well if that’s desired (didn’t think they would because of the pandemic). Overall a wonderful dining experience which we intend to repeat.
Overall good experience, we enjoyed dining out at this restaurant and highly recommend.
Had a good time. The stuffed mushrooms were all filler, hardly any crabmeat but other than that the food was delicious! Had the best waiter also.
It was my first time dining out since 2019 so I was very anxious about going butttt because it was my husband's birthday I gathered up my courage to go. Waite staff attentive and a good time was had by all.
Great Birthday dinner.
We have dined here and at other sites many times. This as the first time our waiter was sub-par. He came by not long after we sat down but we had eaten the whole loaf of bread (someone else dropped it off) before we saw him again. He had not even taken our drink orders so I have no idea where he was. The room was far from full. He was not very attentive at all and spoiled our anniversary dinner. Food was great as always and perfectly cooked steak per our instructions, just bad service.
Franck was an amazing server and made us all feel at home! The food was great! We will definitely be back!
They are not consistent on serving spinish.
Food was great even though they were closing in 30 minutes. Staff and waitresses were friendly. Great service !
Took My Baby here for Mother’s Day and it was good and our favorite dessert was amazing! Was surprised that the sides were so big
This food was ok but they was very slow and it was not crowded,plus we had an reservation. The server was nice but not honest about the food,the stuffed mushrooms are stuffed with stuffed not crab so I was very disappointed about that.

Great place to take Mom on Mother's Day! Great food, great service and great desserts!
Lovely experience all-around!
Douglas the server was exceptional. Knowledgeable, classy, and well spoken. A clear professional. My wife is very particular, but he found suitable food solutions for her. Great experience overall !
Enjoyed sitting at the bar. Julio was very attentive. Food was wonderful.
We all enjoyed our food and the service was great! We will definitely be back
My husband had never dined at a Ruth's Chris. I warned him that it was not all that good and over the years gotten worse, but he needed to experience it for himself. We love to cook and have flavorful palates. He was shocked when his upgrade of the cowboy steak tasted because they ran out of ribeyes! It was small, not cooked to order and tasteless. My filet was just a bit better because it was cooked to order at least but lacking in flavor. The barbecue shrimp had a sauce that was very bland-no hint of barbecue flavor at all! Our sides were asparagus and scalloped potatoes. The asparagus was over cooked, and the potatoes lacked flavor-low quality cheese, potatoes cubed instead of sliced and bland. We also got lettuce wedges. These were fine because, well, how do you get such a simple salad wrong? $215 total with tip. All these foods we cook better ourselves for a fraction of the cost. I am sorry Bethesda Ruth's Chris, but your chef/cook needs help. For such an expense, he or she needs to be better trained. The waiter was great. We didn't complain because we are just not the type, but given this opportunity, we HAD to speak out. We don't eat out very often-especially now during this health crisis, but it hurt to spend that kind of money and not enjoy it at all.

William our server was great. He was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Our whole dining experience was amazing.
Went here for my 15years anniversary. I made reservation and was very detailed in my notes. The lady that ushered us in maybe the manager fot that day took me and my wife to the most disgusting part of the restaurant. Just opposite the bar, no table clothes and the candle was not on. I wondered if she read the note on the reservation or even saw how well we were dressed. I didn't want to complain so i dont look like a grumpy black man. We have celebrated our anniversaries in high end restaurants and this is the first time @ RC and it was a bad experience. No word no complimentary desert etc. Down to Eddy V's and everyone will atleast have the manager come say "hi" and wish you, or card signed by manager or complimentary desert or just something to make it special.
Thank God i have a wife who does mind
Great dinner celebrating a graduation. Excellent service and fantastic steaks as you’d expect. Would recommend
We came for our anniversary and our food and service were both outstanding! This will be our go-to steakhouse!
William was our waiter and was exceptional, made the experience very relaxing and easy. He tended to all of our requests and made sure we left extremely satisfied.
Food was not the amazing “Ruth Chris” quality, our appetizer which was calamari was way over cooked and coating was falling off the calamari. The lamb chops were good but they were in just a hurry to serve us so we leave before 10pm. I love this restaurant but today it did not deliver. Still spent over $300 but I feel I need a do over with usual quality and service. That’s why we come back. The lobster in the Mac and cheese tasted old as not fresh. Took dessert and more to go. Hope they taste better.
Food and service are excellent!
This is our favorite Ruth Chris’s locations. I don’t know if they had a new chef or if he was just tired that day but the food was COMPLETELY off.
We started off with our normal Seafood Tower. Once it hit the table it immediately smelled fishy. We began eating from the Seafood Tower and everything was great until we got to the lobster. The lobster claw felt gritty and slimy and tasted like chalk. I than attempted to eat the tail but couldn’t get passed the smell, that’s when realized where that fishy smell was coming from.
For dinner I ordered my steak medium well. Which meant I wanted a little pink in the center right? Well it came out extremely well done with no flavor. The only thing I ended up taking home that night was sweet potato casserole.
The service was great as usual by Sarah. We’ve had her as our server a few times and she never disappoints us.

I ordered my steak medium and it came out rare. Very disappointing for Ruth’s Chris or any high end steak place

We had a wonderful dinner at Ruth’s Chris just after the County opened things back up. Our waiter was William and he was outstanding. The food was scrumptious and the atmosphere perfect for our romantic evening. Can’t wait to come back!
Portions are smaller now
It was freezing cold in the restaurant

Server Franck was terrific, food great as usual
It's a lovely venue and the service was good. Unfortunately, the featured steak - bone-in t-bone - was over-cooked and dry.
William our waiter was amazing
Not the best meal I've had at Ruth's Chris, but certainly passable. My only specific issue was with the side dishes that arrived lukewarm. The lobster bisque was also luke warm and had only one small piece of lobster. Very atypical for a place that normally gets everything right. 5 star service, though, thanks, Meg! And nice job of physical distancing. Still love this place. Recommend.
The experience was wonderful! Great staff and the server was very nice and professional. I can’t wait to come back!
