Went for our anniversary dinner and were seated promptly. The table was set with rose petals and confetti-nice touch. The service was amazing the food was great. 2 steak, 3 sides (family style) 2 desserts, and a martini ran us $193 with tip we spent $240. Manager greeted us and thanked us for coming and to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Would return.

Great experience. The staff was helpful and personable. The service was great but a little slow in getting the meal to us and bringing the invoice. We almost went to the cashier instead of waiting.

WAY overpriced for quality compared to competition. Food was very nice, but hardly worth the price paid. We had plenty of time for dinner but it turned into a crunch at the end and we had to rush out. What was that all about? A table full of dirty dishes just sat in front of us for a long time.

We had a birthday and they recognized it when we came in but for whatever the reason, totally forgot it when dessert came about. Kind of a letdown.

It had been about 10 years since we were last there. It will be at least that long before we come back. Just not a great value for the dollar paid.

This was our first time visiting with Ruth’s Chris in Fairfax and I have to say it was a very lovely and enjoyable time. From the start, Jeff made sure we were comfortable and addressed all questions and concerns promptly. Our food was prepared exactly as described, came out sizzling on the hot plates and was oh so delicious. We will be visiting this location again soon.

Love this Ruth's Chris. I think it's the best. I've been to several locations and this is by far my favorite. I usually arrange my visits to RC by whether Tim (server) is working or not. He is wonderful. He knows exactly what we will be eating by heart. He knows what wines to suggest to us. On this visit Tim was a floor Manager but he still made sure that we had everything we needed. He made the night as special as possible. We were celebrating a birthday. I love that RC offers black napkins. I can't stand when I have black pants on and someone gives me a white napkin. I love the tomato salad. They use a very sweet brown tomato. I love all the sides and of course the sizzling butter that comes with the steaks. Desserts are over the top delicious. I especially like the berries and cream. They always accommodate me. I also love the banana pie. I definitely recommend this Ruth's Chris.

As usual, the food was delicious and no doubt that Ruth's Chris has become our Friday night date-night go-to for me and my wife. The only disappointment was our server David. While he was fine, and would be considered above average at any other restaurant, he was not up to the our usual expectations from previous dinners. What saved him was his assistant who made up for his shortcomings. In the future, we'll be sure to ask to be seated in areas where I favorite servers are working.

We celebrated the 50 birthday of son, husband, and father. The staff greeted us as soon as we arrived and had the table prepared with special birthday favors. There was no rush to get our orders--either drink or food--so we could relax and enjoy the blessings of family. When the food arrived, it was attractive and tasty, and hot. We enjoyed the Ruth Chris Classic menu and added special before and after dinner drinks. A fine memorable evening.

My husband says his rib eye steak was just average. I thought my salad seemed pre- prepared with slightly wilted and bitter greens. My filet was just right with delicious sauce, mashed potatoes were ok, and the little special cheesecake for restaurant week was divine! Service was a little sketchy but considering this was during busy Restaurant Week, we’ll excuse that! But despite the special Restaurant Week menu of $35 for my dinner this was still a pricey evening. Not worth a repeat visit anytime soon!

We took advantage of Restaurant Week to take my daughter out for her birthday. It was wonderful! The staff arranged to have a birthday card waiting at the table when we arrived - she was very surprised. We also were VERY happy with the Restaurant Week menu (great deal); the meal was absolutely delicious. Will definitely go again...

We celebrated two birthdays there , the reward was a table that they sprinkled a little confetti on before we sat down , seriously I drop over $400 for dinner and I can’t even get a gratis dessert for a birthday , over priced steaks and all sides are a la carte this place is a joke , 100% better value elsewhere unless you prefer to overpay for food and average service
