I always enjoy a good steak. Thus far, Ruth has not disappointed. The wine selection is excellent. Good atmosphere. Our server was too artificial. Though she was pleasant, her mannerisms are not those one would expect in a top notch restaurant. A reminder to those visiting RCSH .. this is a steak house. Do not hold your breath and expect...

We went to Ruth's Chris to celebrate two birthdays and could not be more pleased with the food and the service. We haven't been to this location for a few years and were pleased to find that it is still a top flight restaurant. The steaks were superb, the wine list was terrific and the service was top notch.

I admit, my steaks have to be kissed by flame to suit me. These steaks are broiled. Big loss of flavor. Also as in so many high priced steak places, not much imagination put into the sides.

I recently had holiday dinner with some friends here. What can I say, other than, excellent meal, drinks and service. I've never had a bad service at a RCSH. If you want to enjoy a good meal, nice atmosphere; RCSH is an excellent option. Keep in mind, RCSH is not Golden Corral nor Outback, bring your wallet. :)

My wife and I recently visited Ruth's midweek (Wednesday 630 ish) in Fairfax - as we often do sat in the bar area for some wine etc. The service in the Bar area has continued to decline to the point of laughable. We sat at the bar and although 4 bartenders / staff behind bar - we sat with empty... More

I had a different cut of steak from the first time and my wife had a filet. My was outstanding and she loved hers. Salads and... More

If you like the food, but not the prices, Try the happy hour. It's a great place to go on a busy Sunday afternoon. Filet mignon steak sandwich is my favorite. Service is great.

Although you are going to pay for it, the food at Ruth's Chris never disappoints. The service is impeccable, the atmosphere is nice, and they are very attentive. The bone-in cuts of meat are my favorite. I wish they would bring back the onion rings and the spicy lobster appetizer.

While this restaurant is expensive you do get what you pay for. The steaks are extraordinary and the service outstanding.

Every Ruth's Chris seems to have a different layout with open areas and private areas. This one is well appointed although you could get lost finding your way back to the table from the restroom. Typical outstanding service and food. It is on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. I had the surf and turf and... More
