We went to celebrate a birthday. We had a reservation but they were able to take us earlier. Host was very friendly and welcoming. Our waiter, Sean... top notch!! He was wonderful. We didnt feel rushed and his service was fantastic. We had two little ones and he was very accommodating to their needs. Thank you helping to make our birthday special! We will definitely be requesting to sit at your table next time we are at Ruth's Chris.

This was our first time going to a Ruth’s Chris and we were celebrating our 3 year anniversary. The location in Fairfax did not disappoint, we were amazed by the service, food, and ambiance. Our server Ali was amazing, attentive and extremely friendly! The staff decorated our table a little bit to celebrate our anniversary and it was a total surprise to us! The food was hands down the best steak I’ve had (also definitely get the sweet potato casserole). It also came out super quick! We could tell the restaurant was very busy but it still felt like an intimate dining experience. I would say if you’re looking to treat your significant other for an anniversary or birthday, this is a prime spot to do it. It’s definitely pricey, but you get what you pay for—phenomenal food and a phenomenal experience. We’ll definitely be coming back! Thanks for the great experience and for making our 3 year awesome!

We love Ruth’s we make a point to go there every year around Valentine’s Day! We end up going with the Ruth’s Classic tonight and got the Cesar salad, filet with shrimp, potatoes (1 baked and 1 mashed), and a slide of the lobster Mac and cheese. Everything was freaking amazing, so much lobster in the Mac and cheese. Service was great as always, Mason who took care of us was awesome!

I will note that one of the steaks was slightly over cooked but as soon as we notified Mason he did everything in his power to make it right. We really appreciated it and it was more evidence that Ruth’s does everything think they can to go above and beyond. We will 100% be returning, as if there was even a question!

Our waiter Sean was very attentive throughout our meal which was special birthday celebration. We ordered a seafood tower, which was new to all of us, and it was quite an experience for all of us with jumbo shrimp, lobster tails, crab meat throughout the tower. The steak was what you would expect from Ruth's Chris, tender and cooked to perfection. We don't go often but when we do, Ruth's Chris never fails to make the occasion the special experience it's always been.

These guys are making in-dining work during COVID. I had low expectations given all the challenges, but the food and service was better than expected. We went on a Friday ight, people were spaced out but it was definitely busy!

Mason, our server, was excellent! The young man was courteous, helpful, very knowledgeable as to the menu and super kind. We've been coming to Ruth's Chris for seven years now to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't be more pleased. An excellent meal in a very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. We'll be coming back!

Me and my friend ate here on Christmas day 2020. We had a reservation but waited less than 15 min to be seated. We ordered the small seafood tower which was an excellent amount for 2 and 1 entree because we were both stuffed. The drinks are a bit overpriced but they put a decent amount of alcohol so you only need one. The bread was hot and the butter was soft. Excellent wait staff.

Ruth's Chris never fails to disappoint, this was no exception. I was pleased they had a varied menu given most restaurants have pared down their menus, especially holiday menu's during COVID. Our party had filet and the surf/turf holiday special. The lobster was melt in your mouth... as was the filet, but that is to be expected. Our server was amazing. Attentive, engaging, funny, he kept up with this boisterous family and remained impeccably well mannered (we were not always so).
