Food is consistently wonderful. Cocktails too. We sat in the bar area- this time a very, very noisy crowned near us made is tough for us to converse. Prices have gone up. Miss the Ahi seared tuna, better than the tuna stack now offered.

Drinks and Service was great. Food was ok. Our cowboy steak was cooked perfectly and our filet was overcooked first. We sent it back and then received an undercooked rare filet.

Great service and amazing food. Our first time at this location and it did not disappoint. We appreciated how our waiter interacted with our five year old and didn’t brush him off for being a child that meant a lot to us. We will definitely be back.

Great meal and service but pricey. We each had a salad, we split a steak and a potato, and we each had a glass of wine. Tab was still over $100 before tip.

Service was barely ok. No major problems, but took a lot of work on our part. Past visits service was seamless with waitstaff anticipating our needs and addressing them without being hailed down and reminded.

I had a lovely, relaxing dinner. A treat to myself after a weekend of mailing Christmas packages and making goodies to deliver this week. I don't think I have ever had a bad meal at Ruth's Chris and tonight did not disappoint. Just delicious! The bread pudding is to die for and I am normally a chocolate fiend.

We love Ruth’s Chris Fairfax. Our waiter Jeff was attentive, and he made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it. The bartender poured delicious drinks. Each of our dishes were cooked to perfection, from med-rare to med-well was spot on. The garlic mashed potatoes were a hit, but our favorite was the calamari. Then we topped it all off with the crème brûlée - a perfect ending.

Our only less than full positive comment is that we were seated at the first table inside the dining room, so we were exposed to the noise of the hostess desk and the bar. This made it a bit louder than we would have liked, but still the overall experience was outstanding. We look forward to visiting again soon.

We had reservations but still had to stand for 15 minutes waiting for a table. when we were walked over to our table there were about seven empty tables. The night definitely did not get better. My Lobster bisque soup was cold. We ordered sparking water and the glasses served in had the most disgusting smell. Then, my entree was brought cold. Not once did the server or management try to accommodate us...We will certainly be not returning to this location.

Food was mostly good. One steak was underdone and when sent back it came out the second time quite overdone. The manager was informed by the server and the steak was comped. So overall the matter was taken care of.

The servers kept putting plates at the wrong place but they were very personable and knowledgeable.

Server was not attentive and rarely checked in. Was never asked about a refill the whole time we dined. Didn’t offer a dessert at all as well and we had to ask for a dessert menu. Food was great though as usual.

I will continue going to Ruth's Chris. I know that they are struggling, as most other restaurants and service industries are, with obtaining quality staff. It was below their average on the last trip.

In addition, I assume that prices needed to go up because of the current economic environment...they certainly seemed higher than in the past.

Ruth’s Chris used to be my favorite place for steak. I’ve been there twice in the past three weeks and I’m sorry to say it has gone downhill. It’s still very good but it’s now just as good as other top notch steak houses.
