My boyfriend and I and our two friends came here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday on our first day in DC. We had just arrived in from London and wanted somewhere close to our hotel which was in Pentagon City. We were slightly shocked at the prices when we first looked at the menu, but then saw the set menu... More

We came here to celebrate my husband's birthday and it was a wonderful experience. We sat by the window so from the 11th floor, we had a great view of DC. It was probably one of the best meals I've had in my life, from the steak, to the sides, to the wine, to the dessert. The staff is ultra... More

Poor service. Went for thanksgiving. Given menu's and then pestered repeatedly by 2 servers over the next 5 mins to order. Then had to request more water, which arrived 20mins later after the server had taken drink orders from several other tables and served them. Request made when food arrived for more gravy, ignored until I asked again when I... More

Dined with several colleagues at Ruth Chris and enjoyed the excellent food as well as the relaxed atmosphere. Our server was calm, friendly, informative and patient. I had the wonderful thick and perfectly prepared Filet Mignon. We shared Grilled Asparagus and Sweet Potato Casserole. Both were excellent. The restaurant is located in a safe and very walkable area.

When travelling for business I always try and treat myself to at least one "proper" meal while away. For this visit to DC, this was that meal. I was seated at the bar so had a good view to the outside, which adds to the ambience. Started with an order of the mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat - a very enjoyable... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner with family while in town. The petite filet was just the right size, overlooked just a bit, still very good. Great atmosphere

Our salad was the best thing we ate.My filet was good but not great like it usually is.It was not cooked like I requested.My husbands... More

After visiting this chain restaurant in San Francisco and being satisfied with experience we decided to give it a try on east coast. BIG MISTAKE. The experience in Arlington, VA was so bad that we've crossed this chain from our list of restaurants for ever. Tasteless poorly prepared food for enormous amount of money. What they served as "filet" wasn't... More

I had to be in Arlington for a funeral which unfortunately fell on my birthday as well. My husband could not travel with me so I decided to "treat" myself. I am so glad I did! I started the evening having a drink in the bar area and had a blueberry mimosa - great flavor and the young lady who... More
