Overall, the food was good and reasonably priced. However, if you’ve truly had good steak, Ruth’s Chris seems very homogenous and run of the mill. However, it does scratch the itch for really good American grain fed prime beef at a modest price point.

Decor and service were very good as usual. Caesar salad was tasty and just right for splitting between my wife and I. Ordered petite filet and sea bass, same as have done on several previous occasions. Both were initially served under done. After coming back from additional heating the orders were as they should have been. Filet was excellent, very tasty. Sea bass did not seem to me as fresh tasting as previously , although my wife said it was fine for her. The sides were tasty and plentiful, and we were provided with additional servings to compensate for delay of main dishes. Manager additionally provided complimentary desert - very rich and enjoyable chocolate cake.

We'll still return as this seemed to be an anomaly based on previous experience.

It was our anniversary and they decorated the table with rose petals and a card which was very nice. Michael was our server, very professional and funny with a great wine suggestion would definitely dine with him again. Whole staff was overall from the host to the food runners actually.

Ruth’s Chris in Fairfax VA is wonderful. In this COVID environment they take every precaution, they have mouthwatering steaks and the sides are to die for. Please order the bread pudding with French Vanilla ice cream which is a real treat. The service is impeccable and the Manager always comes by to speak. I have also had great wine in Cabernet and Chardonnay varieties. We loving having date night there and are pleased every time. Thank you.

Sofia was our waitress and she was great. Very friendly, happy and made us feel special on our anniversary. The host was also very nice. He held the door for us also. The food was delicious and we were seated away from people to adhere to social distancing. We felt very safe and enjoyed our anniversary.

My new husband and I had a fantastic time celebrating our new marriage tonight at Ruth Chris! Our server, Ali, was one in a million and went above and beyond to recommend a great bottle of wine, awesome steaks, and give us free champagne and a dessert to celebrate our wedding! Highly recommend and if you can request a server, Ali is the best.

Steak was a little grisly. Crab legs seamed old tasting. Fries were underdone. Salad was good.
