We decided to celebrate our daughter’s 21st birthday and I choose Ruth Chris because I wanted a beautiful warm setting to entertain in. The restaurant and its staff was very nice plus the food was very good. Overall all of us had a wonderful dinner and time at the restaurant.

Ray went above and beyond to find a particular wine that was originally believed to be out of stock. He definitely made my birthday awesome. The service from Ray was amazing. Food at Ruth's Chris is always on point.

For our 15th anniversary. Food delicious as usual. However it was also much busier than the times we’ve been here before. Service was slower than expected and we had to remind our server about a drink we had ordered that she forgot. Also my wife’s house salad was sopping in ranch like a lake so she couldn’t eat it. But these are minor issues and we will be back. Everyone always super nice.

The food was great but service was at times intrusive. The servers wanted to constantly clear the plates and interrupted conversations. I even asked for them to come back but they insisted. I may not do business dinners here again.

The filets were delicious. They were cooked exactly right. The service was wonderful even though we had a waiter in training. We had a gift certificate from my son for 100 dollars but still spent another 125.00. It was worth it. You get what you pay for. We will go again, just not next week.

Normally Ruth's Chris in Fairfax is our go-to place for small celebrations like my mother-in-law's 81st birthday, alas it was not to be. As usual we were greeted warmly and were taken to our booth right on time. I had let them know while making the reservation it was a birthday celebration. The table was nicely decorated as usual and there was a very nice birthday card signed by the staff. We didn't recognize our server - we eat here enough we know many by name. She was pleasant enough but things started to go downhill quickly. 2 of the 3 drinks we ordered were completely wrong requiring replacements. Appetizers were fine, but dinner came out less than 2 minutes after we finished our appetizers. Kind of felt like Outback-style rushed. Then we had to remind our server to bring the bottle of wine we ordered, so now I am tasting wine with dinner waiting to be eaten in front of me. Thankfully the wine was fine. But then things really went downhill. The group behind us in the booth were really loud, but it was only a shadow of what happened next. We didn't realize it, but they had seated us for our birthday celebration next to 2 very large groups (one was 12 people, the other was 10). These two large groups showed up during our dinner and were extremely loud. The manager came by an apologized for the noise - but didn't ask them to quiet down. Instead she offered to move us to another table in the middle of us eating our dinner which we declined. They then offered us a free birthday dessert and we ordered cheesecake. The server brought the cheesecake before the coffee and only brought one utensil. We had to ask for extra forks. The coffee came along with the check which we promptly paid. The last issue was that the way the tables were arranged for the two large groups made it difficult to exit. My mother-in-law needs assistance to walk and not one of the people in the groups tried to move their chairs even a little to let us by. Not the best night.

The food was excellent and our service was fantastic! The waiter serving the table next to us was extremely loud. But that is the first time that has ever happened and we go to Ruth's Chris several times a year so I know that his loudness was an anomaly.

It was not what we expected!
Server was not paying attention and our food did not come on time , our desert did not come on time . We could not find our server to even pay , that’s why we have to go to manager to pay .

Manager Samantha was great and very friendly. She made sure we are taking care of .

We waited over 20 minutes for our dinner to arrive only to be mixed up. My sons well done steak was medium rare. Then our bill came and had 3 shrimp cocktails instead of 1.

Overall our group enjoyed the night. It’s a lot of money but we enjoyed the experience. That said my ribeye was very tough. It tasted great it was just tough. That’s the second time I’ve ordered steak from this restaurant chain and had a tough piece of meat. The rest of our group loved their fillets. We still had a great time and overall the food was terrific. The only other minor complaint would be the Old Fashion I had in the bar that was mostly ice.

Great for a special occasion or a drink at the bar for one of the best food HH deals in town. Tried the seafood tower for the first time last weekend. Pricey but soooo good! Highly recommend.

So disappointing...again! We have not been back in years due to a previous experience. I had high hopes that things had improved, I was wrong. First, this was a dinner I had long anticipated having with my guy, a quite, relaxing night out. Our reservation was for 6pm in hopes of beating the Friday night crowd. The restaurant was basically empty, plenty of seating and where do the sit us, next to a table of 10 with 2 small (active) children...why? We started with two cesar salads which where obviously prepared earlier and put in a chiller. They were very small, came with cherry tomatoes (who puts those on a cesar salad) and not worth the $12 they charge. My date ordered the filet mignon - medium and I ordered the petite ribeye - medium rare (I normally get the filet but thought I'd try something different). His filet was over cooked, tough and flavorless, could have been a sirloin. My ribeye was cooked correctly, but it was tough and also flavorless. We ordered two sides, the Au Gratin potatoes and lobster mac & cheese. The potatoes were very good but the lobster mac was a joke, all they did was throw some pieces of lobster on top of some boring mac & cheese. I doubt we will ever be returning unless someone I know & trust tells me that they've improved. A true waste of $200.00.

Outstanding restaurant. Food was exquisite. Service was impeccable. We told them in advance about my wife's birthday and they gave her a card, decorated the table and presented her with dessert. Everything was very special. I recommend this restaurant to everyone.
