Rural Society Reviews List

Rural Society

Rural Society is a contemporary Argentine steakhouse from nationally renowned master of Latin cuisine Chef Jose Garces. Inspired by his travels to South America, Rural Society is at once rustic and luxurious, bringing the energy and sophistication of Buenos Aires to Washington. Our menu and primarily South American wine list, combined with our warm hospitality and welcoming décor, transport you far from the bustle of the District to the sweeping cattle ranches and grill-fired kitchens of Argentina.

"I decided to try Rural Society for restaurant week. Looooooved it. The food was great. The ambiance was amazing. We had a semi private dining table. It was a "nook" that overlooked the grill. My fiancé loved it since we had just come back from a trip to Argentina. We def had an appreciation for the food. I recommend this restaurant and look forward to dining again."

"This was not my first time at Rural Society for Restaurant Week. Neither will it be my last. It is a culinary gem, and the restaurant week menu is outstanding. From the moment I arrived I felt taken care of as I was a lone diner and taken to the less noisy back of the restaurant. I was quickly attended to, and each course magically improved on the previous one. This is a place for when you want a special dining experience."

"We went for restaurant week and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Menu offered just one choice, but it was perfect: an array of 3 appetizers to share, a delicious steak sliced and served with creamy mashed potatoes and grilled wild mushrooms, and dulce de leche flan for dessert. Service was outstanding, despite the restaurant being quite busy. Atmosphere is warm and inviting. definitely a winner."

"Overall this place was okay but it's probably a better option for dinner than for lunch. I would not go back for lunch but may consider giving it a shot for dinner. The service was very slow even though the restaurant was not packed (it took us a little over 2 hours for a weekday lunch). If you have ever had a real chivito, you will quickly realize that theirs is sub-par, even though it's $20. Had greater expectations for this place. We were 8 in the group and pretty much everyone felt the same way."

"For a place advertised for great steaks, it really fell short, especially given the price. Tables were small, and we were put out next to a high-traffic area, even with quieter tables open (lots of them) in a less busy part of the restaurant. Wait staff wasn't as attentive as I'd expected ... nearly had to flag someone down to take our order. Again, very disappointed and won't return."

"I had eaten here once before and had a lovely time; however, for the NYE and their Tasting Menu, I was completely unprepared for what ensued. The food was not bad, in fact the octopus was a true stand-out but the amount of food served had us screaming uncle. I had wrongly assumed that the "4-Course" listing with sub-courses within each was a menu that would allow you to make selections in each. Nope. We got all 11 courses?! We tapped out at course six. We tried to hang in there but were bested by beef. WAY too much of it. Very tasty all, and I took most of it home but wow. Four people could have shared two if not one tasting menu and left feeling ready for champagne. We were ready for bed."

"I was looking for Argentina restaurant, since whenever I travel and I come across one, the food is always incredible. My dentist told me about this spot so we checked it out on NYE.... I was not disappointed. There was a preset menu, and everything was just incredible. Can't wait to go back."

"I went to Rural Society for dinner with out of town colleagues after work. The steak here is truly superb, up there with the best I have ever had and probably the best in DC for flavor. My steak came more blue than medium rare, but I don't mind under-cooked steak and it just tasted so good I wasn't going to complain or send it back and loved every bite. My colleagues also really enjoyed their meals and they too raved about the meat.
I'll definitely be back."

"I've had wonderful meals at Rural Society in the past, including brunch. But this time the food tasted like leftovers. Stale pastries, chewy steak, cold eggs. Overall, this was a disappointing experience."

"It was an amazing time. They greeted us in a professional manner kind and friendly. The food was tasteful and enough where you didn't feel overstuffed. Bread was delicious. A must go place."
