Katie, the hostess, was informative, kind, and pleasant. Sean, our server, was exceptional. The auxiliary/busboys make sure our table was clean and clear. The Manager made time to stop by to check on us and wish us well. Our food was amazing. We did pay a pretty penny for our Anniversary dinner date, but it was well worth it to us. We also appreciated everyone wearing masks and enforcing customers to wear masks when away from their tables.

The Old Fashion was lacking greatly. A Steakhouse like this should be able to nail an Old Fashion every time. We were both very disappointed in them.

Das hervorragende Personal (Aufmerksaamkeit, Freundlickeit) kann den mittelmäßigen Zustand des Restaurants nicht ausgleichen. In die Jahre gekommenen Ausstattung und Einrichtung trüben den Genuss.

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.

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.

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.
