We go to Ruth's Chris a few times a year each year for the last nine and the service is always been exemplary. From our server Brian to the valet and even the bar staff everyone has always been extraordinarily nice and kind to both my family and I. And that's why I keep coming back

Unfortunately, we did not enjoy or dining experience at the Fairfax location. Our waiter was no where to be found 90% of the time. When our finally came to take our order he didn’t have a pen so he went off again another 5-10 mins. It took almost 30 mins to get our drink orders (mind your they were straight pours and not cocktails). Half-way through our appetizer our waiter told us he needed to get our dinner orders again because he didn’t put in the order and completely forgot what we ordered. We were celebrating our anniversary and while we made the best of it we definitely will not be returning to Ruth Chris Fairfax.

It was great food, service was good, very polite and friendly staff, just a little confusing on wait time for tea and silverware for dessert, plus I really wanted the skinny fries and not the regular ones. Good strong drink , great steak and salad ( Caesar). It took me three attempts to finish that cheese cake, finally done two days out from our dinner 😊.

We’ve always had a great dining experience here, it’s a family favorite for birthdays or special days. We had a waiter who has served us before, Ali. He is exceptional. Very attentive, super nice, and a great person to have on your team! Look forward to another great experience!

We are a repeated customer and we celebrated our grandson 21th birthday . To be honest the portion of my husband salmon was too small for a diner compared to what we always experienced . The portion of the shared sides were also too small . I just wonder what happened? My grandson enjoyed the celebration and we had a good time

Excellent experience - our server knew when to check with us and when to leave us alone. The food was exceptional. We were next to a large group and we still were able to have our own nice private discussion.

My husband and I went to the Fairfax location for a birthday celebration. Overall, we enjoyed the experience. The staff members were very polite and professional. That was huge for us. The food was good, but we felt it was overpriced. We expected more for the price we spent. I ordered the petite fillet and shrimp which came to a total of $52. I asked for well done, buy the steak was a little burnt. The shrimp was delicious. We ordered a side of lobster Mac n cheese which ended up being my favorite food item. It was enough for us to split and not have to buy separate sides. I’d give the food a 6/10 and the service/ambiance a 10/10.

Long overdue date night. Even though they couldnt accommodate us for 5 course beer dinner (found out offered when we arrived), management offered complementary tastings at no extra charge. Very accommodating also in exchanging salad offerings when my wife didnt like hers. Steaks were melt in your mouth tenderness cooked to perfection

The food was fine but we were seated next to a table with a large group and they were very loud. They were having a good time, and that was fine, but it made the dining experience much less enjoyable, which was disappointing. There were plenty of tables available, and I am not sure why we were seated next to the large group.

Not service oriented, very poor quality food and bad value. Made a minor special request fir food from the bar menu to be served st the dining room table and was flat out denied with no compromise.
Will try to never go back again.

I decided to take my wife to this Ruth’s Chris because we live right down the street, and while we’ve been to several other Ruth’s Chris locations, we’ve never stopped here. This Ruth’s Chris is very nice. The food was great and the service was excellent. We will most definitely return.

Please bring back the peppercorn sauce for the steaks. Salads were very average in appearance and were drowning in salad dressing.

Absolutely Fabulous.

The parking/valet service needs to be enhanced during rainy times:
1. valet should have a large umbrella and help women from car to restaurant;

2. receptionist employees should give/communicate the valet ticket to the valet - I tried to hand mine to them and they treated it like a hot potato.

3. treat the customer like your business depands on them, especially during inclement weather.

After spending over $300 for dinner for two, I don’t think it’s too much to ask or expect.

A great upscale place to have a quiet dinner. We were celebrating a birthday and they had decorated the table -- but no singing, yeah. Food was great, great selection of wines. And best of all, the noise level was great. A quiet restaurant where you cannot hear the other patrons or have music too loud in the background. Also, it is nice that they have valet parking. A great place to dine.

Six of us went to celebrate two birthdays and we had a delightful time. The food was delicious, the service superb and we spent almost three hours at the table. We enjoyed cocktails, wine, appetizers, salads, main courses and desert. Soup to nuts it was an excellent evening! We go often and will continue to do so.

Very slow in getting food out. Took 15 minutes from the time we asked for the kid's ice cream. I guess if you are in the mood for drinking and chatting then it may be ok for slow service but not the best when you had a 7 year old with you.

Once again we were very happy to eat here. I experienced a life threatening situation where a piece of steak got lodged in my throat. Fortunately a retired police officer (from New Jersey) was sitting right next to me and performed the heimlich maneuver immediately. Thank God for Ron Lucas and family. My wife and I are so grateful for this man to be in the right place at the right time. He should be commended for his life saving skills. This took place Sunday 2/17/19 @ 9pm..Fairfax Corner.

The food is good and not unreasonably priced for what it is, however if you’re seated on an isle, as we were, the constant coming ang going of waiters balancing trays over your head destroys the experience. Service was seriously lacking; our waitress never again appeared to ask if we needed anything. Employees chatting and laughing at nearby stations is annoying.

The steak my husband and I had was the worst I have ever had at Ruth’s Chris. It was cooked perfectly, but the meat was tough and grisly. It definitely did not taste like a prime steak. The waiter also brought the wrong wine...a Chardonnay with steak?? Then when he brought the right wine, he put the burgundy in an ice bucket...which we corrected. The worst experience I have had at Ruth’s Chris. I expect better for the price!

Ruth Chris is always good for a great steak. However, I have to comment on the bartender, who was not only super friendly and accommodating, but made the best Vesper martini I have ever had!! Would definitely go back!
