Ruth's Chris on Connecticut Ave in Washington is wonderful. The food and service were simply perfect. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and had drinks at the bar. When we said we were ready for dinner, the bartender signaled a hostess that arrived in a moment and we were off to one of their several very attractive small rooms.... More

Our server, Jemelle was absolutely awesome and told us about the specials of the day. He was very insightful and knew what he was talking about, he also made a... More

We had a wonderful dinner consisting of all courses. My husband had a perfect ribeye steak and I opted for a 3lb Maine lobster. Everything was cooked perfectly and our server Roberto was on point.

The food is same as others and value as at other ruth chris's is somewhat better than at the other major steakhouse chains. This one is a little bit darker in decor than most of them. Service is good.

We enjoyed a steak we split. The location was okay... Might have tried the Ruth Chris, Mall location, if we had thought about it. Interior of restaurant was a bit old, but none of that really mattered. The food was fantastic!

If you are already a Ruth's Chris fan, then you know that it serves high quality, though pricey, steaks and other dishes. But the building for this restaurant must have previously been some "pirate-themed" venue because the interior is all brick and winding staircases and wrought iron, reminiscent of a medieval castle. Enjoyed my rib-eye and side dishes as well... More

I titled this because the Ruth's 724 9th St, NW, isn't an option on the tripadvisor list. However, how can you go wrong with a Ruth's Chris, really. This was our first night in the city this trip and we made our reservation a week early knowing the Satellite convention was in town and the location was close by. Though... More
