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

We have never been disappointed at a Ruth's Chris before in any other state so this was a shock and a big disappointment. It was fairly early ,so they were not crowded or overly busy. 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

This is without a doubt one of the premier steak houses where ever you may be. You can always count of superior service and amazing food. And the Ruths Chris in Arlington exceeded these expectations. Made reservations for four people and upon arrival was guided directly to out table. There was not an occasion where I needed something and someone... More

Sat at bar as usual. Crab cakes and ceasar salad. Both excellent. We shared the cowboy ribeye. I missed my petite filet! Potatoes au gratin are my staple these days. Biggest find of thhe night - white chocolate bread pudding with grand marnier anglese. I am hit or miss with bread pudding and this was scrumptious!
