I have never reviewed anything before, but for any celiacs out there, I want to share that as of July 2015, this Bethesda MD location of Ruth's Chris is woefully undertrained on gluten. Despite excellent experiences at the Pikesville MD location, the Bethesda crew served me a delicious but glutenous appetizer. I emphasized my celiac disease when I made the reservation, when I sat down, and when I ordered. Additonally, the waiter claimed to have full understanding when I said I needed my food to be GF for medical reasons, not just for a diet. I was suspicious because my app had a sauce and I asked a server/hostess to double check that my plate was GF. She left and came back a few minutes later to reassure me it was safe, so I dug in. Five bites in and my waiter walks briskly over, told me not to eat another bite, said my plate was not GF, and took it away. He apologized and asked if I was going to be all right; a manager came over and did the same thing, and they talked more with my parents while I was throwing up in the bathroom. They did not charge me. They earned two stars because at least they realized the error and owned up to it; with training and attention to detail, I doubt this would happen again.

My husband and I choose Ruth’s Chris for our anniversary dinner every year! It’s my favorite steak restaurant for the quality, but also because they take my food restrictions due to Celiac very seriously. I have never had a problem or concern regarding what was safe for me to eat and they have always been great at exposing how they take precautions. Can’t wait to go back!

There’s a dedicated GF menu but it hardly has anything on it. Only one app, a couple of salads and a bunch of steaks. No chicken or seafood and 2 desserts. It was pretty disappointing for our anniversary dinner, especially when the bill was close to $250.

A gluten free menu. Does warn that there’s a chance of cross contamination. I did not have any problems.

This place was so fantastic. A separate gf menu and staff who were so accomodating. They even split one of the salads in half and gave my daughter a gf dressing and me the standard dressing. The GF Sin Cake (chocolate) was so rich and delicious. 10/10.
