Ruth Chris is simply on of my faves. It really do not matter what you order everything is simply amazing. From drinks to appetizers and service, you just can's ask for more.

First and foremost this is a higher end Steakhouse. You pay for higher quality, about twice what you pay at Outback. With that being said food was great. Staff was nice and friendly. They do have a dress code, business casual. I had a polo shirt and slacks which was acceptable. Great experience and food if you're willing to pay... More

For a sophisticated, elegant steakhouse with views of the Potomac River and the White House, we were dismayed to find that small children (who are tired and cranky at 8pm) are welcomed to this restaurant. An otherwise lovely evening was ruined when conversation became impossible due to the noise level of one small boy who arrived with his parents at... More

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
