Call me crazy, but we decided to take teen age neice and nephew for dinner. Crab cake appetizer, ceasar salad, seafood tower, filet, 22 oz cowboy bone in, veal ravioli, au gratin potatoes, white chocolate bread pudding. Eating cold seafood was a little weird they said, but everything was eaten and they really enjoyed being treated. Food was outstanding as... More

the food was very good, drinks well made and the view of the airport was very nice. Noisy restaurant, especially near the bar, as most seating is.

I can't say the food is the best but they do a pretty nice steak, try the bone in filet. Get a table in the bar area or a table in the bar area on the glass to have a great view of the airport and downtown D.C. Area. Make sure you check your bill, we ordered a $65 bottle... More

RC Arlington offers an amazing view across the river into DC, super friendly waiters and bar staff and excellent food. This was first place I took out of town guests when I lived in Arlington. If you crave ambiance, good food and exceptional service this is the place to go.

The Ruth's Chris steakhouse on the 11th floor in Arlington is a great location over looking the airport and they have the finest petite ribeye steak that you'll ever eat.

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.
