The Mater'd was expedient in seating us although we were 30 min early (and it was buzzing due to regular customers and prom night ) . Next up John (our server ) was AMAZING... Not to mention any runner or other servers passing our table smiled... More

We were attending a work related conference in Charlotte last week. Our party of 6 made reservations at the Grille and arrived. The general manager met us at the door and explained that there would be a slight delay in being seated. Once seated, he sent two comp apps to our table which were to die for. Our server Antonio...

Had drinks and an appetizer in the bar before the Moody Blues concert on March 28. I love the valet parking option right across from the theater, and the ability to get your car quickly after the show, or stay over an have some coffee and dessert before heading home. The bartender served up a proper Negroni and a nicely... More

Amazing food snd service at the semi formal restaurant. My steak was cooked to perfection and paired with perfectly seasoned potatoes and vegetables. The salmon was also a hit.

Made last minute reservations for 4:30 on a Thursday. Dinner crowd hadn't started arriving yet so we had the undivided attention of Steve Lagarde our waiter for this visit. His recommendations on entrees was spot on. His ease of dealing with special dietary needs was very welcome. The pan fried calamari with hot cherry peppers was the perfect lead in... More

First off.. you've gotta try th French onion soup.. it's by far my favorite along with their trufffle fries and delicious salads. The one in the Chevy Chase area has a pineapple coda drink that is also a must have. I usually sit at the bar and if you happen to have Michelle, she is the best!

Ruth's is consistently good in every city. When feeling not terribly creative, it can be relied upon for a solid meal and fine service.
