Ruth's Chris Steak House - Fairfax
I went for my birthday and the food was as tasty as ever. The problem was I think there was something that was slightly spoiled as within an hour and a half most of the meal I ate was gone, if you know what I mean. Other than that it was a pleasant experience.
Lovely dinner with family visiting from Germany-they loved it!
What I have come to expect from Ruth's Chris. Food was flavorful, plentiful and service excellent.
It was a fine end to restaurant week. Great selection and the food as always was fantastic
We have always had a wonderful experience every time we have dined at the Fairfax location. Service is always impeccable, food cooked perfectly, and ambience is nice.
Amazing staff that made our anniversary such a special night
The food was fabulous, booth was perfect and staff was amazing!
We are basically regulars at Capital Grille and our experience at Ruth’s Chris proved to us that Capital Grill is way superior! The service was almost non-existent. First they had a problem seating us because they didn’t know which tables they had waiters for yet. Finally got a table after taking us to two other ones. Excuse was the air conditioner was acting up. My husband ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. I ordered from the regular menu. The food came out hot so that was good, but rarely did anyone come to check if we wanted or needed anything else. Dessert came with my husband’s dinner. Two forks arrived and than a piece of cheesecake. I was never asked if I wanted dessert nor were we ever asked if we wanted coffee. But he was happy to give us a bill. By the way the restaurant wasn't busy. I also told waiter in the beginning that I was lactose intolerant. Don’t know how he expected me to eat cheese cake and didn’t seem to care. I will not go back there again, nor would I recommend the restaurant to anyone I know.
Have always enjoyed Ruth Chris. This was the first visit which was not so pleasurable. Although the food was excellent, the service was horrible. And it wasn’t even crowded. My reservation was at 5:30 so when we arrived it was only three other couples. Don’t know what the pro law as but the slow service ruined the entire dining experience.
only if there service and presentation of the food gets better. Inwas truly disappointed when my food arrive to find that both of my side dishes wew either cold or oveecooked. Although I received new dishes we must remember that first impressions are lasting impressions. I'm hope the next everything will be at the 5 star standard Ruth Chris is known for.
Samantha wow just wow! First class service and David was top notch!! Don’t lose these two!
Going away dinner
Everything was yummy and great! The attention was also super!
Great food. Wonderful atmosphere. Happy employees, very attentive. Went to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. Couldn’t have been a better experience!
Took my wife, mother and father there to celebrate mom's birthday. The food was absolutely delicious. A slight gripe I had was that my appetizer never showed up. The rest of the experience was absolutely amazing. Great service, mouth watering food and delicious desert. Mistakes happen, and I can forgive the lack of appetizers. Will 100% go back.
Service was fairly average (I don't want to feel rushed but do want to feel attended to, and think they weren't nearly attentive enough with dirty plates, etc being ignored for a while), and steaks were only OK. Prior trips have been great but for the cost, I want it to be consistent.
10/10 experience! Took my spouse there for the first time and she couldn’t believe how fast the service was, how attendant the waiter/waitresses were, and how polite they all were as well. And don’t even get me started on how amazing the food was. Been there several times. Has always been an excellent experience!
Great experience ! My steak was a bit undercooked, but I didn’t know it until I got close to the bone! My fault for not checking first. My husband’s ribeye was perfect!
Everything was very good except for the cocktails. There were very watered down, filled with ice and overly expensive.
The restaurant is always a wonderful treat for me and my wife
The service was outstanding and the food was great
We had a delightful evening and birthday celebration for my husband. Food was outstanding as was the service.
Ruth's Chris has become our neighborhood go to restaurant over the past couple of years. We always enjoy ourselves and despite what many might think, you can get an excellent meal at a decent price. We almost always opt for the three course special which has never failed to satisfy. Thanks again for allowing us to enjoy a rare Sunday night out!
Sadly, very disappointed. Steak not work $53.00. Not even close. Baked pot not fully cooked. Caesar salad was blah, limp and overdressed with dressing. Service was slow—dishes left at table, soda for son never received. Dessert given for son’s Bday a very nice gesture. Thank you. End of night and all we could think about is we just dropped $450 on a dinner that was mediocre at best.
Amazing food and atmosphere. The best steak in the country. Service is always special.
We had a wonderful dining experience celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. My wife was touched by the way Ruth Chris had made our table setting more personal for our occasion. Our server Matt was very friendly, attentive, and offered good suggestions. The wine list was extensive, we opted for a proprietary red wine blend. It turned out to be a very good choice for us to pair with our filets, which by the way, were very tender and tasty. The dessert menu and after dinner drinks should satisfy anyone's palate. It had been a while since we dined at Ruth Chris and they had not lost their touch. It was a very delightful evening for us. :)
Great food and great customer service
Son-law’s birthday + family visit from overseas
Excellent food, as always, but the service became mediocre as the meal progressed.
We have enjoyed many meals at this particular location through the years. However the service this time was somewhat lacking to the point that we even had to ask another staff member for the check.
All well in the beginning but not at the end. It was early on a Saturday evening and not particularly busy when we visited.
All-in-all an OK experience but for the price, and our expectations of your establishment, quite disappointing.
I will reconsider this restaurant as my top choice for special dining experiences in the future.
Thank you for asking.
Service was off.. steak was tough. Not our usual Ruth Chris experience
Welcoming, friendly and congenial atmosphere serving superb steaks!
We have been here numerous times and always the same experience - superb!!!! Highly recommend!!!!
My first experience at Ruth’s Chris was fantastic. We had probably the best waiter I’ve had at any establishment. My New York Strip was amazing. Overall the atmosphere was inviting and comfortable, all the way down to the very nice paper towels in the restroom. I’ll be back, no doubt.
Always consistently good food and nice ambiance!
Everything was great from start to finish. Food was perfect and our server Scott was awesomd
First time eating at Ruth Chris’s. Went for 5th Anniversary with my wife. Amazing atmosphere and our waitress, Julia, provided us with excellent service. She explained everything for us first timers. Definitely will be going back soon. Definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Good overall. A bit pricey but food was great!
We got the tomahawk cut which was $126 and it was supposed to be a 40oz cut. We ordered it medium rare and received rare. After cutting our steak in half, the manger dropped the bone on the ground and there was still meat on it. He did not offer any sort of discount for dropping a portion of our food. The fat on the steak was not rendered at all and took a large portion of the area of the steak. The sides were poorly prepared with the exception of the cremini mushrooms. The other sides we ordered were potatoes at gratin and the potatoes lyonnaise. The onion were burnt and had a gross charred taste. Please stay far away from this crappy corporate establishment and support your local businesses instead. We went for our anniversary and it wasn't worth the cost at all. Not even close. The server was nice and a bit pushy but I assume that they are trained to be that way in order to get you to order as much as possible. Please stop holding our check hostage for 20 minutes when we told you we were done eating. I did appreciate the free cheesecake that we received for our anniversary, but the main event (steak) was pretty awful. Please avoid this money pit of a restaurant.
Everything was great from the manager Being attentive to our needs and Sean was our server and never missed to beat. And the quality of the food is always superior and this is why we keep returning , we know what we're gonna get and tonight it was excellent.
What can you say? It's Ruth's Chris. It is amazing. I will say they did go above and beyond for this visit. I booked this dinner for our anniversary and they decorated the table with us and well she loved it and I took total credit for setting this up, but all I did was push a button on open table.
Food was amazing. Service was great. I will be back for our next special event. Mason, our server was great. He even bought us desert since it was our anniversary. A+ Service.
Food was amazing and the service was top notch! Fast and friendly! And they decorated the table for my birthday! The seafood was so big and the steak melted in your mouth! Can’t wait to go again!
Great place to eat and outstanding service. A must for any occasion...
