It was our anniversary and they decorated the table with rose petals and a card which was very nice. Michael was our server, very professional and funny with a great wine suggestion would definitely dine with him again. Whole staff was overall from the host to the food runners actually.

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.

Sofia was our waitress and she was great. Very friendly, happy and made us feel special on our anniversary. The host was also very nice. He held the door for us also. The food was delicious and we were seated away from people to adhere to social distancing. We felt very safe and enjoyed our anniversary.

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.

Steak was a little grisly. Crab legs seamed old tasting. Fries were underdone. Salad was good.

Ruth Chris always adds that special touch! We went here for my husband’s birthday dinner and the service was excellent. They created special menus with his name and happy birthday on it! What an excellent touch to make him special

Edwin was our server - excellent and attentive but what was even better was that no matter what server stopped by to drop off (bread or pour water, etc)they all took a request and followed through with service.

Great place to go for special occasions!!

This is my Ruth's Chris. I was stunned to find out when I arrived that my server, Tim, is no longer there. Tim was our server for years and years. He knew exactly what we were getting. We barely had to order because he knew our order by heart. He made great suggestions that we stuck with over the years. He knew the menu inside and out. He was very loyal to Ruth's Chris. We will have to now get a new "favorite" server at Ruth's Chris. Our server tonight was great. It was quite weird though, I forgot to tell certain details because I was so used to Tim knowing it. The one thing I was disappointed with was they would not make our peas. We get the peas every time we go and it didn't matter if our reservation was last minute or not, they would do it for us. Tonight they did not. But other than that it was smooth sailing and great food with one other exception, the crab cakes. My husband had a ton of shell in it. He kept picking shell out of his mouth. Everything else was great. I suggest the tomato and mozzarella. It is kalamata tomatoes which are a sweeter, darker tomato. the tomato almost loves brown. The corn is very fresh and right of the cob. The broccoli was very good, soft and I requested hollandaise. The sweet potato casserole is always good, can't go wrong. The banana creme pie was especially good. I always ask for it to be extra done. The top is bruleed. Drinks were good as usual. I always get the Gambler's Old Fashioned. This is still our RC, I just need to tweak some things.

We had a very disappointing experience for what was supposed to be dinner with our close friends for a special occasion. Dirty wine glasses on the ledge behind me were never removed. After waiting over an hour for our drinks to come, we had to speak to an assistant manager about the problem, and it still took another 10 minutes to get them after that. Two of the four dinners were supposed to be petit filet. However, the steak that came did not appear to be a filet, appeared to be strip steak. Two of the four steaks were severely overcooked. Both were ordered medium rare and came very well done, and were tough. The asparagus was soggy and overcooked, inedible. The lobster mac n cheese was watery and had little flavor. The salads were good, the crab stack and tuna appetizers were good, the bread was good. Desserts were so so. Nothing was comped on our bill for the poor service and the wait on our drinks. Overall, for a dinner for four that cost over $500 or more with tip, it was lackluster and disappointing, and it was absolutely the worst steak I have ever eaten in any restaurant. We won't go back.

Everything was great but there was a bit of delay for reservations. Some people said they were waiting 45 minutes to an hour for their reservation. We waited about 30 minutes or so. The staff was great but a couple of staff at the front desk seemed to be very overwhelmed. My guess is that there may have been an issue with overbooking.

Valentines Dinner: Restaurant was very busy as you would expect, not seated until nearly 25 minutes past our reservation. Food was excellent. Service was okay, had to wait multiple times for refill on drinks, even for someone to come by to check on us. They definitely brought in additional tables for the crowd as we were almost seating with the parties on either side of us. Privacy for our conversation was not possible. I will definitely go back, chalking this experience up to the holiday.
