Ruth's Chris Steak House - Fairfax
Great wait staff. Great steaks. Lobster Mac and Cheese a gift from God
Outstanding Father's Day celebration. Service, food and surroundings were all great
We went for Father’s Day. It was very crowded. Service was very slow and food just wasn’t what it usually is. We made the best of it. We have been there many many times (even had my rehearsal dinner there and my parents 50th anniversary) and have never been disappointed
Very disappointing - where do I start? Took 30 minutes from drink order and ice was melted on 1/2 the drinks. Food was clearly "flash heated" and delivered to the table. AC not working and waiters perspiring all over. Dinning room is worn out and need of renovations. A Sizzler is higher end than this place. Don't waste your time or money at this dump. It is absolutely horrible.
Lamb chops with mint jelly was excellent. Steaks cooked to expectations. Lobster Mac and cheese on the side.
Bread pudding was not a good choice.
Overall good first time experience.
Service was impeccable from beginning end!
Great food. Impeccable service. Friendly. I recommend Ruth Chris to everyone.
Such a great way to celebrate our anniversary. Everyone was so considerate and the food was great. Thank you! The special Happy Anniversary table decorations was such a wonderful surprise!
Awesome. Delicious food, great beverage selection, friendly ambience, and so on. Wonderful evening.
My wife and I have been to quite a few Ruth's Christ and this one in Fairfax did not live up to our expectations. First the salads were served about 15-20 minutes after the order was taken. However, the manager did acknowledge this and offer us an upgrade for dessert. The second situation was that my wife's small ribeye had a lot of gristle, she ate around it. Third, my wife order the Ruth's Coffee and was served a cappuccino instead. We finally received the right item. Our servers were very friendly, but did not come to our table to check to make sure everything was alright. We think the restaurant was understaffed and they working too many tables and service to us was poor. The best part of our meal was the desserts. The cheesecake and the banana cream pie were excellent. It seems to me that the quality of the steaks have dropped a bit and not worth $50 or so.
For this visit the service was not very good, very slow and they were not that busy. Great steaks and sides, but expensive.
Great restaurant! One of our favorites
Nice restaurant. My wife and I both ordered a filet , medium well. Mine was more on the medium rare. More fat and gristle than would be expected at that price. We ardered broccoli but it didn't come. When we asked the waiter said we didn't order it. We know what we ordered. Disappointed .
This was a HS graduation celebration... the staff was super amazing and made sure that every request and every detail were taken care of.
The quality of the food and service were outstanding; Ali did a great job. Great value !
Had our 16th Anniversary dinner at Ruth's Chris. We had hoped for a booth, but got a 4 top table, which was fine, just not as nice as a booth for comfort, quiet, privacy. Food was great, and service better. Ali did an excellent job helping us on our special occasion that night! Thank you.
Always consistent with great steaks and an outstanding list of terrific wines. If you like steak, Ruth’s is an excellent choice.
Great food as usual and they held our table because we we're stuck in rush hour traffic. Specially decorated our table with rose petals, a sign and glitter for our anniversary.
I’ve had many exceptional meals and this wasn’t one of them.
Service was great and the so were the potatoes au gratin. Everyone else was just ok.
As usual, everything was top notch! I probably say this every time but the filet mignon was probably the best i’ve ever tasted!
Slow and inattentive service. The steaks were the highlight of the meal.
Service was good up until dessert. Waiting about 25 minutes for strawberry shortcake. One of our filets was over cooked. No problem remaking.
Price is a little much, but steaks are amazing.
DISAPPOINTED. First, I had a problem with paying $10 for a plain baked potato that cost .75 cents; should have charged $5-$6, added the difference to the steak. Next, a small glass of tea filled to the brim with ice (maybe 4-5 oz of tea) was not refilled, not even once! Lastly, the steak (petite filet) was not impressive, on par with Longhorn.
Maybe it’s this location, rubbed me the wrong way, I’ve visited many Ruth’s in different states— I left feeling ripped off and unsatisfied.
Won’t be back to this location.
That said, I have eaten at the Ruth in downtown DC... they do it right!! I highly recommend the DC location.
Great service and great food!
Great birthday dinner! They prepared a little birthday confetti on the table and wrote happy birthday on my dessert which was very nice.
Food was great. My boyfriends filet mignon was perfectly cooked. My NY strip was a little overdone but I’m a slow eater and I think it may have been because of that since the plates they bring the steaks on are so hot, I’m sure it cooks a bit extra as you eat.
Other than that, everything else was perfect. Server was great and always had an eye on us.
The homemade cheesecake was amazing, best I’ve ever had. I wish I had ordered another to-go!
Celebrating our daughter’s college graduation and we we reserved a table for five. Give a great corner table. The staff was very attentive to our needs from the moment we walked in the door until our meal was concluded. Drinks and wine recommendations were spot on. Our meals we excellent with steaks cooked to perfection. One in our party is a vegetarian and to use her words was “very yummy”. Desserts nice as well and recommend that you save room.the staff even scripted a congratulatory message in chocolate on our daughter’s dessert plate which was a nice touch. Overall a great night and will come back.
We had an excellent anniversary meal including a fine steak & lobster dinner.
Business dinner for 8. Took close to 3 hours. Staff was not attentive at all. Steaks were sent back for more coom time. This place has gone down hill.
Simply put - dependably great. It is the same every time we go there. Just don’t let your kid order the fries.
Service was outstanding but food/steak was bland and missing flavor/seasoning.
We were very disappointed with the ambience and value of food to money. The waiting staff were snooty.
The seating hostess was very pleasant and nice and that's the only reason for my one star.
Went for Mother’s Day! Had a good time. Food was great, service was outstanding. We took advantage of some of the specials, they were really good.
Would love for you to open another restaurant we could visit more often than this one. This was our first visit but we cannot afford to visit as much as we would like to. Great experience, thanks!!
Over the years we dined at Ruth's Chris Steak House several times - and as always - the experience was great. his was an "early" Mother's Day celebration. We were seated promptly and were greeted by our server. The menus were explained and we ordered drinks and food - we were never rushed throughout the dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful, The noise level varied but was never too loud to carry the conversation. We are a neighbor (almost - about a mile away!) and will visit the place again!
Excellent service. We sat down late, 45 minutes before closing, yet they treated us like we welcomed. They acknowledged our Anniversary, though they were unaware until we were seated. Complimentary dessert was provided for us as well.
Well Worth it!
Excellent service and food, for latter, the T-bone steak and cheese cake we're standouts!
Outstanding food and service. We enjoyed the evening very much.
Only problem was one member of our party is in a wheelchair. Access is roundabout at best and tonight was marred by the fact that there were no working motorized door openers. Those doors are heavy when you have to hold them open and push a wheelchair at the same time. Leaving was much better. Someone there to help.
Always a pleasure to visit this location. The staff is great and the food is what you expect for a Ruth’s Chris.
The food was delicious and the staff was great.
Everything was top notch. We were greeted promptly and taken to our table. They acknowledged our anniversary and the table was decorated accordingly. It was not overboard and thought it was done quite tastefully. Being our first visit we were told what to expect and our meals were fantastic. Would definitely go back.
