Good fishermen don't say where their secret fishing hole is, so why invite others to try Ruth Chris' in Arlington? Because good fishermen like to brag on their great catches, and this one is the best. Don't be fooled by the spectacular skyline view of Reagan International and DC (US Capitol, etc), the reason you make reservations here is for... More

My husband and I were there this weekend and we were extremely disappointed. We made a reservation prior to going, decided to have our Valentine's Day dinner early. We got to the hostess station and it took her a while to locate our reservation. There wasn't a feeling of genuinely being welcomed. Our table wasn't ready, so we had to... More

We-R-Local. Although we have lived in the area for a while, this was the first time we tried this restaurant. We took advance of their extended Valentine Day’s offering over the weekend. We had an early reservation and were seated (per request) in a booth, with a view a short distance from the windows overlooking the Washington-Reagan airport and more... More

Stopped in without reservations. We were seated quickly. The service was professional and attentive. The food was tasty and prepared according to our wishes. The noise level was quite acceptable.

Booked on open table - including notification we were celebrating our anniversary. Arrived at the parking garage in Crystal City and pleased to see that parking after 1600 was free. Inside the garage signs for Ruth's Chris led us to park just below the elevator that would take us to the 11th floor. As soon as we identified ourselves, the... More

Always solid and consistent! Great Ruth Chris location in Crystal City, VA. Locating within an office building so kind of awkward getting there but well worth the trip.

Went here for Christmas dinner and it was fantastic. Had reservations so we didn't have to wait, food was on point once again. They all wished my daughter a happy birthday.

Total let down! It was my boyfriend's 34th birthday and he'd never eaten at Ruth's Chris but had always wanted to. He now never plans to eat there again. Steaks were decent, the lamb chops were fatty and tough, sides (asparagus, fingerling potatoes,and asparagus) were plain; there was not one thing special about our entire meal. The waiting team did... More

From the start - I'd like to emphasize that this review is for this restaurant only - and my intent is not to provide a poor review for the entire Ruth's Chris chain. I've been to other Ruth's Chris (RC) restaurants before - and they've been much better. My family and I went to Ruth's Chris in Arlington to celebrate... More
