My wife and I were in Arlington for a funeral at Arlington National Cemetry and we're spending the night, so we decided to treat ourselves to dinner. Ray's the Steaks was within easy walking distance of our hotel, so we made a reservation (recommended) and walked over. We were seated immediately, served by a very attentive staff, and had delicious... More

Had dinner here with a large group of family & friends. Although this is a steak house, I had the diablo salmon and it was delicious. The spicy sauce made the fish really appealing. My wife had a small filet mignon and it was also very tasty. (Yep, I tried some of hers). The family style mashed potatoes were good... More

Met up for a team meeting here. Went with the daily Bistro special which was crab or onion soup or salad, hanger steak or salmon, and unlimited mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Went with onion soup which was out of this world and the hanger. Very large portion of hanger steak that was VERY tasty. For the price point, it... More

Gets a "very good" rating because of the great service and the crab bisque, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were excellent . The entrecote steak though could have been more tender, but maybe because I should have ordered it medium instead of medium well. The server had suggested it as one of the most tender along with the filet mignon.... More

It is a great place with an incredible week days special. Everything I have eaten here has been delicious. I go with a group of 10-14 each time and service is top notch.

I've heard a lot about Ray's but had never been. I made a reservation for my husband's birthday. We got the boneless ribeye which was excellent. The sides (mashed potatoes and creamed spinach) were "free" and we did not order extra. They were only okay. Overall it was a good experience, it was a little bit cheaper than a typical... More

Ray's offers a standard steak house menu, the feed and price are decent. The décor is not very inviting, tables are small, very close together. Service could improve5 quite a bit.

Ray's has fabulous steaks - really top quality and very tender, with lots of flavor. The sides, served family style in big dishes, were also excellent. The restaurant itself in Arlington is very plain, with little atmosphere, but the food makes it all worthwhile. Ray's is a great place for a special event - expensive, but worth it.

Love this place. They place emphasis on not gouging the customer and I like that. The steak and wine is every bit as good as a pricey steak house but you don't leave feeling like you were taken.

Excellent restaurant. The filet was perfect, and my onion soup was delicious. I highly recommend this place.
