Food was superb and service was exceptional. My wife's Birthday dinner was excellent thanks to our waitress. We will definitely be coming back again.

We had such a beautiful visit to Ruth’s Chris Fairfax. It was my birthday and I loved every bite of my meal. When we arrived at our table, there was a nice card from the restaurant waiting for me and in the end, we were given a free dessert, anything we wanted from the dessert menu. Our waiter was very attentive and kind. As always, they seem to hire the best staff who have a high degree of professionalism.

For a higher end steakhouse, I was disappointed by the service/decor.

There was no coat check which is surprising.

By the front door, there was a giant ceramic heater on the floor. This was an odd sight.

For a white tablecloth dining establishment and one I’ve been to before, I was disappointed that the linens were stained and that after each course, the server did not remove crumbs from the tablecloth.

Favorite Ruth's Chris. Food was great! Started with one of the best Old Fashioned I have ever had - Gambler's Old Fashioned. Love the tomato/mozzarella salad. They use kumato tomatoes which are darker and sweeter. The balsamic reduction goes perfectly. We also had a bottle of one of my favorite wines - Chimney Rock fume blanc. Next of course was the buttery steak. I love the smell of the sizzling butter. We could not resist going all out on the starches. I love, love, love the peas u'gratin, potatoes u'gratin and we had the mac and cheese as well. I know cheese city and I loved every bite. The fruit and cream for dessert was a perfect ending. We always ask for Tim as our server. He is excellent. He has been a part of dining experience for years and years.

Our group came here for a Birthday celebration. We enjoyed everything from appetizers to the wonderful steak options that they are so we’ll know for. Dessert options were also very nice. They also had a very nice wine selection even though it was not very extensive. Lastly our waiter was just amazing. Very attentive and pleasant!
