Place was great, steak was delicious although I probably will go a shade darker than my usual medium rare order at a steakhouse. The meat was on the rarer side than medium. Mashed potatoes, both soups, dessert, everything was fantastic and server was very friendly. He checked in as necessary and not pushy in any form. Will definitely be back!

This is hands down the best restaurant in Arlington right now. Great steaks, great wedge salad, outstanding mashed potatoes, very good brussels, super old fashioned. One weakness is the cheese cake, which seemed not house-made and was a waste of calories. Just give us a great big sundae! Nice service too.

Steaks were cooked perfectly. Sides were family style so that gave us a lot of variety for dinner.

This is a wonderful addition to Arlington. As a former regular of Ray's the Steaks, this is even better. Superb service and food.

What a great surprise. Friends told me about Guerra Steakhouse and I had never heard of it. Food was incredible, wine list was extensive. Dining was pleasant, unhurried and elegant. I can't say enough good things!

We were thrilled with our first visit to Guerra Steakhouse. We will return soon as even our 6 year old daughter loved it so much, she can't wait to return. We had been told that the Guerra chef is the former chef from Ray's. The beef was prepared perfectly (esp. for those of us who ordered medium rare filets and NY Strip); only exception, my sister ordered her 6oz filet med well and it was a bit less pink than desired. The Caesar salad and Bibb salad were both delicious as were all starters and sides: French Onion soup, mashed potatoes, asparagus, creamed spinach, lobster mac and cheese and regular mac and cheese. Sauces were outstanding, especially the mushroom cream sauce and horseradish sauce. Decor was crisp, clean, and classic bringing a fresh, upscale and much-needed addition to the area. We ate outside as it was a perfect evening to be out (6 of us to celebrate a birthday), but when I brought my daughter in to use the WC, we were both pleasantly surprised at how nicely they had refinished every aspect of the interior. No corners were cut and it felt nothing like Ray's (which is a good thing). Nice jazz was playing inside the restaurant and it felt so much more relaxing and enticing than I have come to expect at restaurants in our area. The only drawback was that they were a bit understaffed with, I believe, only two servers to handle all tables. While it was a Monday night and there were still quite a few empty tables inside and outside, the waits were a little bit longer than preferred. Still, the staff were warm and inviting and any delays would not deter us from a return. Guerra will surely be part of our regular line-up. One final parting touch which was sweet was a surprise chocolate mousse dessert with a candle to celebrate my husband's birthday. I hadn't mentioned this upon arriving at the restaurant, but I had listed this as a special occasion when making the reservation online. They didn't forget!

We took our college student out for a nice dinner, steak was one of her favorites. We found this place on Open Table. It was a nice evening and we got a table outside. The food was excellent and staff was friendly. Would definitely visit again.

For a new restaurant we were pleasantly surprised. The Ribeye steak was great. My only complaint is that for some reason they will not let you split the check. We went with another couple who did not f drink and we wanted separate checks. For some reason that os not allowed. If they want to continue at this price point they best allow separate checks

It’s just OK. Reasonable priced, dinning room is small and over crowded, service was decent but slow for a steak house. Meat was slightly over cooked but given the slow service opted not to return it.

Food was delish. Pricing extremely accommodative. Service was a bit slow and aloof but the hostess said they’ve only been open for 2 months and I feel confident the practice will come. Overall, great find and addition to the culinary scene of Arlington.

The husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary, such a cool steakhouse. Very pretty we set outside. The manager was so nice, she changed our seats out for us , so we would be more comfortable. We received great service , and the manager was very sweet, to give us dessert for our anniversary. The menu also said happy anniversary! We will go back.

We shared one of the specials...a 26 oz tomahawk, it came with a salad, mashed potatoes and an additional side of our choosing. It was more than enough, also shared a bottle of wine, the consumption of which lead to coffee and dessert.
My husband is a HUGE fan of custards and he said the flan was the best he had ever had. I have the lava cake ala mode, which even I could finish. It was a great meal and we took leftovers home (wine too).

Guerra Steakhouse made our evening out celebrating our engagement the best experience. We were seated immediately and welcomed with customized menus and a glass of champagne to celebrate our engagement and kickoff the evening. The ambiance of the restaurant is beautiful and classic. Dark woods and cream walls. The setting is lovely enough but not detracting from your meal or date. Our evening was completed by sharing a dessert. Guerra Steakhouse took this off of our bill as another congratulations for our engagement.

The neighborhood desperately needed a restaurant like Guerra for glorious steaks and sides. I look forward to returning and continuing to support them.

For a restaurant that has newly opened they really had everything together. The food was very good and high quality ingredients. Everything was cooked well and flavorful. The service was very good and every one was very kind and accommodating.
