We had reservations but still had to stand for 15 minutes waiting for a table. when we were walked over to our table there were about seven empty tables. The night definitely did not get better. My Lobster bisque soup was cold. We ordered sparking water and the glasses served in had the most disgusting smell. Then, my entree was brought cold. Not once did the server or management try to accommodate us...We will certainly be not returning to this location.

Food was mostly good. One steak was underdone and when sent back it came out the second time quite overdone. The manager was informed by the server and the steak was comped. So overall the matter was taken care of.

The servers kept putting plates at the wrong place but they were very personable and knowledgeable.

Server was not attentive and rarely checked in. Was never asked about a refill the whole time we dined. Didn’t offer a dessert at all as well and we had to ask for a dessert menu. Food was great though as usual.

I will continue going to Ruth's Chris. I know that they are struggling, as most other restaurants and service industries are, with obtaining quality staff. It was below their average on the last trip.

In addition, I assume that prices needed to go up because of the current economic environment...they certainly seemed higher than in the past.

Ruth’s Chris used to be my favorite place for steak. I’ve been there twice in the past three weeks and I’m sorry to say it has gone downhill. It’s still very good but it’s now just as good as other top notch steak houses.

We went to Ruth’s Chris to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday we had an amazing time. The level of service, quality of doors, and ambiance were all amazing. Their wine list is also top notch. I highly recommend Ruth Chris of Fairfax and look forward to seeing them again in the very near future!

Our server, Brian was fabulous. Was attentive but not obtrusive and we just had a blast! The food was just as decadent and yummy as it always is! Our entrees ranged from filet mignon to crab cakes, the seafood tower and tuna appetizer. And a fun birthday treat at the end!
