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

Decor is dated, food is average at best, service is ok. First time at a Ruth's Chris and was not at all impressed by anything.

We were here for Christmas dinner. First, it's really nice to have a restaurant fully open for Christmas. We were quickly seated, and our server (Sam) was excellent. Unfortunately not all the dinners (very expensive) were up to snuff. The location is nice -- top of a Crystal City office building with a good view of National Airport, National Harbor,... More

We dined here whilst I was visiting our offices that are located a few hundred yards down the road. Five middle aged guys, 3 from the USA & 2 from the UK, thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent juicy, succulent and generously sized steaks. The ambience and clientèle were classy without being stuffy or ostentatious, the service was what you'd expect from... More

In town on business I headed here after work with a colleague. The restaurant is located on the 11th floor of one of the Crystal City blocks overlooking the airport and the DC skyline. We had a table at the window and enjoyed a burger and fries and drinks as part of the Happy Hour Deal. The place was thronging... More
